Tiller Killer: There's more of us out there

Scott Roeder, the right wing extremist/terrorist who shot down abortion doctor George Tiller a little more than a week ago (while in church, mind you), called the Associated Press today from his jail cell and told them that he knew of "similar events planned around the country as long as abortion remains legal." When asked to elaborate, he would not.

Yet, back in April, such thoughts were "outrageous" and whoever drafted such a report deserved to be "fired," according to Newt Gingrich.

A report on left-wing activities was also released by the Department of Homeland Security, but no one seemed to care that the agency was balancing it's ideological threats. The fact was, conservatives hated being told there were conservative terrorists, and thus found whatever way they could to deride the report.

Except now we're seeing examples of conservative extremism in everyday life. Gun nuts who fear Obama is going to take their guns killing cops; anti-abortion zealots killing women's health practitioners; and anti-liberal whackos breaking into churches to shoot up a couple people. Think the conservatives that decried this report will have anything to say about it, will say anything about the Roeder claim? I doubt it.
