David Daleiden Damn Well Better Be Nervous

After all, he owns this attack on Planned Parenthood more than just about anyone else.
David Daleiden Damn Well Better Be Nervous

Breitbart is already spinning hard for David Daleiden. Catholic anti-abortion extremist Austin Ruse jumped right out of the gate Friday afternoon as fast as he could with the hard spin about how Daleiden still had friends at Planned Parenthood, and of course didn't support violence against the clinics who he claims harvest "baby parts."

Sure, and I'm a billionaire too.

There is little doubt that David Daleiden is nervous that Planned Parenthood will blame Friday’s shooting at a Colorado Springs abortion clinic on him and his videos.

Yes, well. He owns it. Mr. James O'Keefe wannabe has spent months claiming "baby parts," after all. Despite predictions by sensible people that blood would spill as a result of his extremism, he pressed on.

Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress produced more than a dozen videos this summer and fall exposing Planned Parenthood’s organ harvest from aborted babies. Planned Parenthood has already said the videos would lead to violence against their clinics.

In a statement to Breitbart News, he flatly stated, “The Center for Medical Progress does not support vigilante violence against abortion providers. There are people at Planned Parenthood who I still consider friends and my thoughts and prayers are with them at this time for no one to be injured.”

If he didn't support vigilante violence he should have considered what his role as the Lone Ranger fighting for unborn babies and evangelical votes everywhere would look like. Nope, this one is on him and his funders first and foremost, no matter how hard the Breitbots try and spin it.
