"Tiller The Killer"

More

After the jump is an Operation Rescue video about Tiller. DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH. It provides important context for the assassination. It's truly vile in its demonization. A commenter on an Operation Rescue message board wrote in May 2007:

Bless everyone for attending and praying to bring justice to Tiller and the closing of his death camp.

Sometime soon, would it be feasible to organize as many people as possible to attend Tillers church (inside, not just outside) to have much more of a presence and possibly ask questions of the Pastor, Deacons, Elders and members while there? Doesn’t seem like it would hurt anything but bring more attention to Tiller.

That commenter was Scott Roeder, who is now identified as the suspect. He also wrote a post on the website ChargeTiller.com, an Operation Rescue outfit:

It seems as though what is happening in Kansas could be compared to the “lawlessness” which is spoken of in the Bible. Tiller is the concentration camp “Mengele” of our day and needs to be stopped before he and those who protect him bring judgement upon our nation.

What we have is an act of far right Christianist domestic terrorism. LGF has more. The video is below. Too gruesome for words.
