Details continue to emerge surrounding Friday’s tragic shooting in Colorado Springs, CO.
The suspect is Robert Lewis Dear, a North Carolina native who was living in a trailer in Colorado, and apparently had a long criminal record that included charges of snooping and animal cruelty.
Despite that, liberals and their media have pounced on the shooting as a way to further their own narrative — and blame pro-life, pro-Second Amendment conservatives for the tragedy. To that end, prepare yourself to hear four words Dear reportedly uttered during questioning by police seized upon by the left to further its narrative.
Via NBC News:
In one statement, made after the suspect was taken in for questioning, Dear said “no more baby parts” in reference to Planned Parenthood, two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case told NBC News.
But the sources stressed that Dear said many things to law enforcement and the extent to which the “baby parts” remark played into any decision to target the Planned Parenthood office was not yet clear. He also mentioned President Barack Obama in statements.
Of course, “no more baby parts” might be interpreted as referring to the bombshell videos released earlier this year showing Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of baby parts from the organization’s abortion practice. And no doubt, the left will seize upon this tidbit to further their assumption that this was a killer driven by right-wing, pro-life Christian fanaticism.
I suppose Dear’s mention of President Barack Obama will make him a racist, too.
Though, as yet, we don’t know if there was a particular rhyme or reason to whom Dear actually targeted; as we’ve reported on this page, none of the victims were Planned Parenthood employees or patients, so that would seem to diminish the narrative of a man hellbent on targeting abortion supporters.
And, perhaps the fact that law enforcement sources described these statements from Dear as “rantings” should remind us all of one central point: this man’s mental health most certainly must have played a role in his horrific act that killed three, injured nine and likely traumatized countless more.
But the left would prefer we blame “right-wing rhetoric” and guns, of course.
