Pro-Life Conservatives Celebrated Planned Parenthood Massacre

Planned Parenthood

In the wake of the terrorist attack on the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility by accused shooter Robert Lewis Dear, pro-life conservatives across the internet celebrated the murder of law enforcement and civilians taken in the name of anti-abortion politics. Commenting from the safe confines of publications like Breitbart continuing out across social media and even touching this site the vitriolic sentiment stands as a testament to the Donald Trump’s and Fox News’ of the right  and the effect of continued, unmitigated hatred for the sake of political gain.

Some of the comments from Breitbart (click to enlarge):

Conservatives hiding at Breitbart weren’t the only ones capitalizing on tragedy. Conservative commenter Ben Shapiro added his two cents to the mix (and later deleted the comment) stating:

Ben-Shapiro- Planned-Parenthood-attack

Many took to Twitter with opinions bordering on gleeful about the shooting (despite the fact that those who died and were injured had no involvement with the facility):


Perhaps most curiously, every single GOP presidential candidate has remained silent throughout the domestic terrorist event while both leading Democratic candidates (and President Obama) released statements offering condolences.
