Left Not Interested In Brutal Murder Over Political Views?
From The Weekly Standard-
Harlan Drake, 33, of Owosso, was arraigned this afternoon on two counts of first-degree murder, one count of using a gun in commission of a crime, and carrying a gun with the intent to commit a crime.
James Pouillon, 63, was shot multiple times at around 7:30 a.m. as he protested across from Owosso High School, police said. [...]
[Shiawassee county prosecutor Randy] Colbry said the grievances were not known in detail, but that the killing of Mr. Puillon was related to the latter’s anti-abortion protest. But he said, “The defendant was offended by the manner of Mr. Puillon’s message.”
"When third-trimester abortionist George Tiller was murdered on Sunday, May 31, President Obama issued the following statement hours after news broke about the killing:
Isn't it interesting how the left was outraged by the killing of a murderer (Tiller the baby killer) claiming those who oppose abortion are potential domestic terrorists, but completely uninterested in the politically motivated murder of an innocent person exercising their right to mere free speech?
I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence."
Smell the hypocrisy. Smell the rotting corpse of the Democrat party?
UPDATE: CBS NEWS Ignores the Killing of Pro-Life Activist While ABC and NBC Explain Away Brutal Murder, Look at "Flip Side"...
Katie Couric’s CBS Evening News on Friday omitted any mention of the murder of pro-life activist Jim Pouillon in Michigan, despite having discussed the murder of abortionist George Tiller on the June 1, June 2 and June 9 newscasts (and then referencing the killing as a recent “hate crime” in a June 10 report on the shooting at Washington, D.C.’s Holocaust Museum).
Both ABC’s World News and the NBC Nightly News, in contrast, offered full reports on the killing of Pouillon and a local businessman, but offered different explanations by saying "Harlan Drake, had grudges against his victims and another intended target but “none of them were specifically related to anti- or pro-abortion beliefs.
Not quite the same coverage or outrage that the abortionist Tiller got now was it?
