A tribute to those who exist solely to be assholes

This would be hard to top.

A gunman reportedly shot and killed Dr. George Tiller a man who performs(ed) late term abortions … Tiller can now rot in hell where he belongs.

What was that guy doing in church in the first place?

Excellent question. Maybe he was trying to learn how to become a thoroughgoing hypocrite and a vile fucktard.

The comments under this shitburst are even more gruesome than the post itself. Then again. “pro-lifers” who think that someone who was killed had it coming aren’t the brightest of lights. This comment shows just how moronic “Big Dog” is; he actually claims that women have late-term abortions on a whim and in the absence of complications. What is so damned hard about doing basic research before littering the Internet with arrant bullshit?

If these people are so frigging blinkered that they actually think someone could make a living solely by performing late-term abortions, there’s no hope for them.

There’s a similarly witless post at Stop the ACLU. In it, Jay, an addled hillbilly of long standing, writes:

Just to be clear…everyone associated with this site condemns the actions of Tiller’s murderer. We also condemn the killings that Tiller did.

To equate abortion in any guise with shooting someone dead takes not only audacity but a complete absence of anything resembling a moral compass. Jay uses this event as a basis for criticizing Obama as well as “leftists” and “moonbats” who had the temerity to express shock and outrage over the murder, and claims that late-term abortions are popular with liberals (as if anyone would want to undergo such a procedure). These are the same fucking assholes who are rabidly in favor of the war in Iraq.

Obama never seems to work up much shock and outrage at the murder of over 2 million babies every year, many of them during the 3rd trimester. I wonder why?

Maybe because Jay yanked the 2 million figure out of his asshole–there have never been more than 1.61 million abortions performed in the U.S. in a given year, and the number has been declining for the past two decades; in 2005, fewer than a million abortions were reported to the Centers for Disease Control. Also, this dickhead apparently knows how Obama feels personally about abortion. And again, the claim that third-trimester abortions are common is demonstrably false:

In 1997, the Guttmacher Institute estimated the number of abortions in the U.S. past 24 weeks to be 0.08%, or approximately 1,032 per year.

Then there’s the obligatory Christopathic nugget:

And, while I will personally pray for Tiller’s soul, he will have to settle with God…

Then what fucking good will praying do in the first place? Christ; these people never even think about the garbage spilling out of their keyboards. They’re as analytical as house flies and even more annoying.

Truth is simply anathema to right-wingers. Not only do they not care about it, they actually seem averse to it.

    Well that’s sure one place to learn it.

    And, while I will personally pray for Tiller’s soul, he will have to settle with God…

    Well we all know that “I’ll pray for you” is fundy code for “Fuck you”.

    Jay has added an editorial note to my comment at Stop the ACLU:

    The 2 million estimate is as exaggerated as the liberal sourced wiki is underestimated. Many reliable sources place it at 1.3 million.

    What this neatly ignores is the fact that the “liberal sources wiki” draws its data from the Centers for Disease Control, as anyone with an understanding of footnotes can see. It also doesn’t explain why, if Jay was able to unearth mysterious “relaible sources” citing a 1.3 million figure (which he doesn’t supply), he was compelled to write 2 million in his post. He’s clearly a liar, as always.

    Gribbit also surfaced in the comments, bitching once again about my pingbacks (which happen automatically whenever I link to a page, I was delighted to learn) and snarling that he is going to treat them as spam. That’s a threat? Be my guest, you tool.

    Dishonesty is the stock-in-trade of these clowns. Lying is all they can do competently.

    Maybe Tiller was in church because he actually read the Bible and realized that it makes it clear that abortion is not murder. Maybe he was in church because he saved women’s lives.
