FOX Assassins

The abortion doctor that Bill O’Reilly targeted has been targeted by good Christians. Sick irony:

WICHITA – George Tiller, the Wichita doctor who became a national lightning rod in the debate over abortion, was shot to death Sunday morning as he walked into church services.

Tiller was shot just after 10 a.m. at Reformation Lutheran Church at 7601 E. 13th, where he was a member of the congregation. Witnesses and a police source confirmed Tiller was the victim.

    Society contains dangerous kooks who from time to time go off the rails. Whenever this happens, both sides seize on something in their background as a possible explanation: “Aha! they were Christian!” “Aha! they were Muslim!” “Aha! they liked crossword puzzles!” Its completely unfair. I expect Liberals –above all others– to be against stereotyping.

    Attempts were made on Dr. Tiller’s life starting in 1993; O’Reilly first mentioned him in 2005. It think it very selective to assign credit to Fox/O’Reilly.

  2. Well, O’Reilly has been trumping up this guy as a Nazi baby killer, which is an extremely selective charge. I have no doubt Tiller had lotsa enemies, obviously he was targeted before. But in this recent climate of shootings in churches and of police, coming from folks who quote these FOX hacks…This is the kind of thing warned about in that “outrageous” DHS report on right-wing extremists arming themselves. It’s not just a random occurence these days. O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and his ilk are the worst kind of parasitic populists, milionaires who use their showbiz education to incite Americans to guns and secession.

    is there more than one occurrence of church/police shooting in which a Fox hack has been quoted? If not, then this would hardly qualify as a climate.

    This would be the third. That’s enemy action.

    After Richard Poplawski killed the three officers last month:

    “Indeed, according to the Anti-Defamation League, the alleged killer posted a YouTube clip to Stormfront of top-rated Fox News host Glenn Beck contemplating the existence of FEMA-managed concentration camps. (“He backed out,” Poplawski wrote cryptically beside the video.) Three weeks later, Poplawski posted another Youtube clip to Stormfront, this time of a video blogger advocating “Tea Parties,” or grassroots conservative protests organized by Beck and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich (see here and here) against President Barack Obama’s bailout plan.”

    From the Tennessee Church shooter last year:

    “Adkisson targeted the church, Still wrote in the document obtained by WBIR-TV, Channel 10, “because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country’s hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of media outlets.”

    Adkisson told Still that “he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement that he would then target those that had voted them in to office.”

    Adkisson told officers he left the house unlocked for them because “he expected to be killed during the assault.”

    Inside the house, officers found “Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder” by radio talk show host Michael Savage, “Let Freedom Ring” by talk show host Sean Hannity, and “The O’Reilly Factor,” by television talk show host Bill O’Reilly.

    The shotgun-wielding suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was motivated by a hatred of “the liberal movement,” and he planned to shoot until police shot him, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning.

    i’ll split the difference with you. Owning a book by an anchor is not equivalent to “quoting Fox hacks”. The guy probably had a rich collection of Field & Stream as well.

    on a mildly related note, i learned from my fav talk show ( the guy who’s link i sent privately) that a DHS report/list also exists with Left Leaning crazies and the whole stir about the right-extremism document was nothing more than fake hysteria. I personally have no problem with either list.
