Guy Benson Gleefully Calls The Planned Parenthood Shooting 'A Twofer" For Democrats

He's practically foaming at the mouth now.
Views:

Conservatives have been foaming at the mouth after Robert Dear opened fire on a Planned Parenthood facility, but not in the way a normal person would have hoped. Erick Erickson disgustingly said the left should be thankful that only eight people have been murdered at abortion providers. They take no responsibility for their insane rantings which has had a cause and effect on the sickest of the right wing extremism they foster.

And they do not care that they used highly controversial and doctored videos by a group that has been targeting abortion providers for years, just so long as it gives them some kind of ammunition to use against a legal medical practice they disapprove of.

See, they are the ones being aggrieved by the Planned Parenthood shootings and not the people that have been hurt or killed. Guy Benson, editor at Town Hall and contributor to Fox News calls the PP attack a "two-fer for the left.

Eureka, we've struck gold!

HARRY REID: We as leaders must be mindful of our words and our actions. Whipping people into a frenzy of hate and anger while providing them with easy access to firearms has proven disastrous to our country. We have a responsibility as leaders to think very hard about what we say and do in this context and what are the consequences.

TANTAROS: Fascinating timing on this one, Guy. Uh, already the Democrats, right after the shooting were trying to politicize this. Now they're trying to use the shooting, uh, to de-fund or I guess stop the efforts to de-fund the organization.

BENSON: Well that's cheap, paint-by-numbers demagoguery from Harry Reid, which should surprise precisely no one, that's what he does, and this is a two-fer for the left. They can push a gun-control agenda while also changing the subject from PP's butchery and their unethical practices and according to what we saw in some of those videos, illegal actions.

CONTINUED: (not illegal actions) *illegal practices

BENSON: they're changing the subject over to the totally indefensible actions of a mad man. And what really gets to me here, this is classic end-of-discussion tactics, where you attribute violence to rhetoric and the purpose of that is to raise the cost of that rhetoric, to silence the rhetoric and to de-legitimize the ideas behind a totally peaceful pro-life movement. It is uh, very unfortunate, this happens a lot.

HARRIS FAULKNER: You hit the nail on the head.

How dare the left hold Conservatives accountable for their hate speech!!!! How could there be any correlation to a shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility after months of demagoguery by Conservatives? How dare the left complain that guns kill people?
