Twitter, that haven for every idiot with an opinion, has been on fire with the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting.
The pro-lifer nutjobs were tweeting how the unknown shooter was a hero for having stopped abortions, while the pro-choice nutjobs were trashing religion.
The bitter irony of all this is that the shooter murdered a police officer who was also a pro-life Christian pastor. That’s certainly going to require finesse from the political spin masters, isn’t it?
I’m sure the politicians are grateful this happened on a holiday weekend so they have time to formulate a response to this latest shooting event. The downside is it will simply drag out the latest public argument about whether or not armed patients in a health clinic could have stopped this guy from shooting armed police officers.
But we will, no doubt, again dance around the real issue, which is there are far too many people in this world that find it acceptable to kill others because things aren’t going their way.
When you break it down like that, our mass shooters and ISIS terrorists don’t sound so very different, do they?
