It couldn't have happened to a better bunch

Operation Rescue, the gang of thugs who specialize in wink wink nod nodding at the bombing of family clinics and the murder of doctors who perform abortion, is broke and may be shutting down. Seems that the fact that their head fundraiser actually seems to have done more than just wink wink nod nod with the killer of Dr. George Tiller (a murder committed at church, no less) has disgusted people. Even their Christofascist supporters who generally applaud Operation Rescue's thuggery can't stomach the killing of someone at church.

Frankly, it couldn't happen to a better bunch of fetus fetishists. Operation Rescue has specialized since the beginning in physical thuggery -- i.e., actually physically blocking access to family planning clinics. They're under court order in multiple states to stay away from the entrances of clinics. Their advocacy of physical violence to shut down family planning clinics directly led to the bombings of multiple clinics and the murder of multiple doctors, even if they themselves wink wink nod nod'ed and claimed they had no idea anybody would take their violent ideas and run with them to the logical conclusion. They're nothing but thugs and goons, and in a just society they'd all be in jail for assault and battery of the poor women who were physically blocked by their goons from going into family planning clinics. But by continually claiming persecution and "religious freedom", they instead turned themselves into "victims" in the eyes of their gullible supporters, and managed to evade their rightful fate.

Well, maybe now Troy Newman will have to get a real job -- one that adds something to the economy. I suggest sandwich artist at Subway. A good sandwich is always welcome. Fetus fetishists waving pictures of bloody fetuses around while stroking their rods... not so much.
