The Response by Many Conservatives to the Murders at a Planned Parenthood Clinic is Sickening

colorado-planned-parenthood-shootingIn the wake of the mass shooting that took place at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood, I’ve been absolutely disgusted and ashamed at some of the comments I’ve read from conservatives regarding the tragedy.

From some mocking the shooting itself, to a few actually claiming this was a ploy by the Obama administration to enact gun control laws, I honestly can’t even begin to convey just how awful and pathetic many of these comments were. So I thought I’d list a few.

For instance, here are a few reader responses to this Fox News article covering the story:

I wonder if Obama smiled when he learned a police officer was killed today and 5 others shot?

Aren’t Planned Parenthood facilities just murder factories, anyway?

Too bad the abortion doctor and the nursing staff weren’t all killed.

Good. No one else deserves to die as much as they do.

This poor Abortion Clinic..their illegal selling of baby body parts for profit was temporarily interrupted. Sniff sniff.

Why does it take a white guy to show you blacks how not to get shot by the police?

Kind of like saying someone just shot up Auschwitz, sure its illegal, but nobody cares.

What’s worse than the cop being shot, is all the babies that will still die inside that he’ll [sic] hole.

It’s probably a black guy that couldn’t get a 10 piece chicken nugget from McDonalds going on a rampage.

its just Very late term abortions..why are liberals so upset

I feel like Obama hired this shooter after what he did to Russia. Distraction distraction.

Yet anther false flag to get Obama’s agenda back in the news!

So, after seeing these, I decided to head on over to the Facebook page for Fox News to see what some of the top “Liked” comments were in response to the story. As expected, I was bombarded with more deplorable idiocy from these people.

Here are a few of the “top comments” from this post and this post:

This is the first mass shooting where the doctors killed more people than the gunman did at the scene of the crime.

Obama is behind it hit like if you agree.

This entire situation is a hoax ~ everyone knows that Planned Parenthood is a “Gun Free Zone”

The only innocent people at planned parent hood are the dead babies that were murdered.

MURDER AT PLANNED PARENTHOOD! is not news….its routine.

Then I decided to head on over to the right-wing cesspool at Breitbart just to gauge the nonsense that was being said over there:

Sorry, but I have difficulty feeling bad for these butchers. Bad things happen to bad people.

“I’m only here to kill my baby, please don’t shoot me…Have some compassion.”

I wonder how many babies didn’t get aborted there in that little hell hole today?

This just in – Shooter was shocked to learn that PP called the police on him, when he came to the job interview with his own tools.

I could keep going, but I think I’ve made my point. Article after article I read, it was the same thing. While not all conservatives fell in line with these horrific statements (kudos to them for not joining the ranks of the bottom-feeding scumbags out there), there were still a lot who did. Furthermore, many of them were actually trying to blame this shooting on liberals, which is absolutely ridiculous.

If there’s one thing I can usually count on, it’s conservatives showing off their hate and ignorance in the face of tragedy. After all, this is the party that has Donald Trump as its overwhelming presidential frontrunner. A man who seems to take pride in pushing bigotry and racism.

Garbage like this reaffirms my belief that the Republican party has essentially become America’s largest hate group.
