O'Reilly has blood on his hands

... and so does everyone who incited and helped the alleged shooter Scott Roeder commit domestic terrorism?

In the comments following Antonia's blogpost at, Big_Willie_Styles said:
"This article is disingenuous. He provided ILLEGAL abortions because late-term abortions are illegal in Kansas. He got off on a technicality, which many think had something to do with the governor at the time of his arrest."
Would it surprise you to find out that Big Willie is a Big Liar? Late term abortions are not illegal in the state of Kansas. But, but, but, Bill O'Reilly said it on TV!!! Shrieeekkk!!! Though it was all about spin, innuendo and obfuscation this side of libel and calumny, someone took the abortion criminalizers' lying lies for truth and crossed the line, committing an act of domestic terrorism. Vigilante violence.

"Tiller", O'Reilly likes to say, "destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000. He's guilty of "Nazi stuff," said O'Reilly on June 8, 2005; a moral equivalent to NAMBLA and al-Qaida, he suggested on March 15, 2006. "This is the kind of stuff happened in Mao's China, Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Soviet Union," said O'Reilly on Nov. 9, 2006. O'Reilly has also frequently linked Tiller to his longtime obsession, child molestation and rape.
That was before Dr Tiller was murdered in the foyer of his church during Sunday worship, so you can be sure that Fox News lawyers will have coached O'Reilly on what to say - and what NOT to say - on TV today.

Roy Edroso at The Village Voice reviewed rightwing fundamentalist religious websites and found the following nuggets:

"There is no evidence yet that a Christian is responsible for this crime, but the fever swamp is not letting facts get in the way of opinions right now," says Wizbang, as if there were some reasonable hope that the murderer would turn out to be an Islamic jihadist or Bill Ayers. ...

"Lefists will use any and all of the most unhinged tactics to defend a political program of postmodern nihilism," improvises American Power. Protein Wisdom's Dan Collins goes in for conundrums: "Let's ask ourselves whether there's been a hate crime committed here. Has there? If so, aren't Islamists guilty of hate crimes?"

The message seems to be that, since liberals are soft on terrorists, conservatives are owed a gimme on abortion doctor killers.

Using the same standards that US neocons have used to define "terrism" when non-Christians are involved, it appears that some of their own have been slip-sliding that way for awhile now, doesn't it?
Check out these comments: from "Anonymous" regurgitating malignant homophobia and from Debra J. M. Smith oozing her own special brand of cloying religious malevolence.

Bill-o-the-Clown has more than blood on his hands... he has hate in his heart. For him, the tolerance of opposing viewpoints is but a concept to be decried, derided, and demonized.
