Bad Craziness Watch: Right Wing Reaction to the Tiller Murder

At Free Republic, they’re celebrating the murder of Dr. George Tiller. From the following two threads:

Report: George Tiller Shot To Death [Child Murderer Killed At Wichita Church]

George Tiller (Child Murderer) shot to death at Wichita church

… a selection of comments, among hundreds (if not thousands) of similar comments:

I’m not weeping for the scumbag himself.I haven’t the fainest doubt that he is,at this very moment,rotting in the very special place in hell that he so richly earned.

What I’m saying is that this will hurt the anti-abortion *cause*…and hurt it badly.

If you doubt me…just watch.

Up to a few years ago, I would have agreed with your statement, Doug.

However, bush2 failed miserably with his “friendly tone” and I’m beginning to think we MUST bring a gun to a gun fight if we have any chance to win this battle against satan and his minions.

One less nazi as far as I am concerned.

What goes around comes around…

Hope the guy gets away.

When I first read this, part of me wondered if some liberal isn’t secretly behind this to get just the outcome you have listed. I used to not be so paranoid, until this surreal reality replaced what used to be. Interesting the timing of this, as it was recently released that according to polls a majority of Americans are anti-abortion/pro-life. Good way to discredit the movement and those beliefs - assassinate an abortionist.

Obama is going to take advantage of this murder to sieze even more control over our society.

I would not even put it past them to commit this murder themselves, as an excuse to sieze power. Reichstag Fire, and all that…

No doubt this ‘man’ is responsible for thousands, maybe tens-of-thousands of needless and wanton deaths. If you think his ‘passing’ is a bad thing in the cause of speaking out and ending the practice of abortion, I don’t know what to tell you. I can only say that I shall not mourn his demise, nor shall I judge others.

It’s too bad the suspect didn’t poke a roto rooter through his skull and then suck him into a vacuum cleaner instead of just shooting the bastard.

You guys celebrating this may just be celebrating the loss of your own freedoms. Don’t be fools. This isn’t good nor is it right.

My, my, that idea just scares me to death. I guess I should be a damned hypocrite and say that I’m sorry someone offed the lousey ration of skunksqueeze.

Not in this life.

Hmmm. The shooter no doubt committed murder by our laws.
Whether he will be judged as a murderer by God may be an open question, and none of us know the answer.

In 1942 Reinhard Heydrich was killed in Prague in cold blood. Czech commandos committed what was by the law of the land murder. They were from a country that had surrendered and they were not in uniform. They did this because he was orchestrating the destruction of the Czech people. Did they kill a tyrant or commit murder or both? There is also the case of course of John Brown and slavery.

Yes we must obey our laws, until we can no longer live with the result of not obeying them.

Do you think that it would have been murder to assignate Hitler? And don’t say that the question has no relevance — this crud was a leading the killer-of-innocents criminal thugs that has already killed throughout the world far more innocents that Hitler, Stalin and Mao combined.

His killer did a great service when noone else would do it.

I do not support this, but I do understand this.

Kansas politics has been corrupted to the core by George Tiller, making him like a mobster above the law.

He who lives by the sword, dies by the sword.

Whatever “church” Tiller attends must be worshipping satan.

Reichstag Fire.

jury (of one) nullification

Why is the death of a satanic worshipper tragic?

He had the goods on Kathleen Sebelius, and that means she was blackmailable. I wonder if they will catch the killer on this one?!

There are a lot more in this vein. It goes on and on and on.

Comments like this are posted at right-wing blogs and news sites all over the web, by the thousands. For another example, at the Fox News affiliate website in Kansas City:

Seems to me he got what he deserved. We now have one less child killer on the loose
steve archer @ 2:24 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

The killing of George Tiller is an eye for an eye, but much too late IMO. He’d have to die many, many times over to make up for the babies he has murdered.
Rob @ 2:23 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

One down—how many left to go? The shooter is a martyr, my prayers are with him.
chrissypoo6 @ 2:22 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

I hope this puts the fear of God into the rest of you abortion providers! Tiller got off easy-he should have suffered the same fate as the innocent children he murdered!
chrissypoo6 @ 2:03 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

I know not the mind of God. But as a human, THIS man had it coming. Who sucks a child to pieces, then goes to church? I will stand with whoever did this ANY day before I stand with Tiller.
John @ 2:03 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

Guess someone just made a “choice” right? Since none of us are any more than a choice our mother happened to make. People who get abortions should BE aborted since it’s no big deal.
Johnny @ 2:03 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

Got what he deserved.
Tam @ 2:02 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

He was aborted….no big deal. Hooray to the gunman.
InAllFairness @ 2:02 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

oh gosh, too bad so sad, the man who bought painful death to a lot of innocent chidlren met his end through a no dobt painful death…….he will be sadly missed by few……drop us a line from hell doc, enjoy……….-…….
bob Hayes @ 2:02 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

I see another late (late, late) term abortion has been preformed in KS.
blaster @ 2:01 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

“Sic semper infanticidii aborsa.” May this only be the beginning.
Anonymous @ 2:01 PM CDT, May 31, 2009

And another barrage of ugly hatred and celebration, in comments at the KWCH website: Police: Tiller Died of Single Gunshot Wound:

Tiller is screaming as the demons rape him. The babies he murdered have been given their just regenge.

George Tiller’s Abortion Service;
“You rape em, we scrape em. No fetus
has even beat us”. Enjoy Hell George

I cheer the deaths of people such as tiller, stalin, pol pot, and the like.

Although Im not happy about this news- it might have been more fair if he had been killed like his countless innocent victims were- cut into pieces and sucked down a sink.


I am astonished at the disconnect between this discussion and the facts necessary to resolve any part of it. It is alleged back and forth whether killing “Tiller the Killer”, as he was called by Operation Rescue 20 years ago, is “Christian”, yet not one Bible quote to settle the question! So here is a private message, only for those of you who actually care about God’s opinion of all this: Pro 24:10 If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. 11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; 12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works? Notice that God is talking about rescuing victims of government-protected murder, since ordinary murderers lack the power to kill by a schedule publicly known. Luke 1:41 shows we can respond to God even before birth; Jer 1:5 shows God assigns missions to us even before conception; Psalm 139:13-16 shows personality existing at conception; Jer 32:35 shows child murder as so unthinkable that not even God thought of it! So there you have it: if you still want to call God unjust or bigoted compared with your more highly evolved self, keep shooting off your mouth at Him. Even though some of your barbs will hit me, since I am standing with God as well as I can, it is safer here than there. Dave Leach, Des Moines

Somebody had to do it. Just need F5
tornados to finish off all the abortionists.
Wichita is not tornado alley for nothing!

What do people expect….that we should be proud of a monster like Tiller? Late term abortion?!!! Who could do such a thing?!!

My only two regrets
1. I didn’t come sooner
2. The shooter didn’t get away with it.

I assume we are still a Democracy under the “leadership” of Barack Obama…….for how much longer I don’t know.

I also assume that I won’t be arrested myself for this comment…or be dragged out of my bed by Thugs O The State and thrown in jail without defense.

Tiller didn’t get that….I hear you libs out there saying in chorus!
Neither did the babies he killed so mercilessly.


It wasn’t a murder, it was a legal, safe, late-term abortion.

Some right wing blogs are closing comments on threads about the murder, and judging from the vile, sick stuff you see above, that’s probably a good idea.

This is very, very bad craziness, at its worst. Shame on all you people who are gloating and partying over a murder that took place inside a church. And you call yourselves “Christians?” What the hell is wrong with you?

I’m pleased to say that LGF did not join in this orgy of murder celebration; we had a few over the top comments, but they were quickly deleted, and a couple of people lost their accounts.
