The terrorist who stormed into the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs two weeks ago has admitted his guilt in a loud public outburst. Robert Lewis Dear, the lone gunman who is facing 179 charges in a Colorado courtroom, killed three people and wounded nine in the attack on the women's health provider.
The defendant, who also has a history as a peeping tom, began yelling in court that he was guilty and there would be no trial. He is apparently refusing to meet with his attorney again and is adamant that he doesn't want a psychological examination.
Dear's defense: He is a "warrior for the babies."
Clearly the simple-minded defendant has been influenced and inflamed by right-wing religious leaders and politicians who insidiously incite violence through their unrelenting hate speech and verbal attacks on Planned Parenthood. Their stooge will do the time for the crime - or worse - while the true villains in this bloody drama will continue to fan the flames of intolerance while earning their Sunday School attendance pins.
Not every dangerous religious radical is rooted in the Middle East.
