Tiller's murder and pro-life "verbal violence"

In regard to the murder of abortionist Dr. George Tiller, I noticed at Matthew 25 Network their statement on the murder, which looks awfully similar to the White House press release (too bad President Obama didn’t express any “shock” and “outrage” over the countless unborn children snuffed out by abortion). In M25N’s release, I noticed a fact that was conspicuously absent. I took a leap of faith and left a response to the statement here, on the website.

Well, that was at about 4 p.m. CST; as of 6:45 p.m., my comment was, according to the website, “awaiting moderation.” Since the M25N moderator has yet to act on my response (maybe he or she is on vacation?), I’ve chosen to lend them a helping hand and post it below:

In your response to Dr. Tiller's murder, I noticed no words of commendation for the pro-life groups who immediately denounced the murder. Your statement reads like a mere reprint of the White House's statement. You won't get much "common ground" with pro-life groups when you make one-sided slams at their alleged "verbal violence."

So while M25N’s moderator gets done “moderating” my response, let’s consider the charge that the lone nut who murdered Tiller was not “acting alone,” according to the Obama Justice Department. Will this ominous “investigation” by Attorney General Eric Holder lead to laws against “verbal violence” that allegedly incites violence against abortionists? (Incidentally, I would like to know what “verbal violence” has been uttered by Focus on the Family, Concerned Women of America, the Catholic League, National Right to Life and other pro-life groups that denounced Tiller’s murder).

And as other commentators have pointed out, it’s interesting that Holder is assigning U.S. Marshals to abortion clinics, while no such precautions are taken for military recruiting stations in the wake of the murder of an Army private at an Arkansas recruiting station, by a Islamic fanatic (maybe Holder can investigate ties to the “verbal violence” that inspired the murderer of 24-year-old Pvt. William Long? Don’t hold your breath).

“A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people,” President John F. Kennedy warned. And it appears that we are seeing an Obama administration and its cheerleaders becoming more afraid each day of those who challenge their liberal orthodoxies (almost as afraid as M25N’s website is to post my comments)-- and acting to suppress those views.
