Tweets of Hate: The Crazy Right Twitters About the Assassination of Dr Tiller.

TwitterOne side effect of Twitter is that the stupid, bigoted comments people used to make at the water cooler now get preserved for future employers to find using Google.

A small sample of the hatred expressed on Twitter after the assassination of Dr Tiller:

A number of these posts are tagged #tcot (top conservatives on twitter), this is apparently some new meaning of top that we're not familiar with.

The Twitter search "George Tiller" OR #Tiller was running at about one tweet per second for the last two hours.  The overwhelming majority of tweets from both sides of the abortion issue expressed horror at the assassination of Dr Tiller.  

If you are as outranged as we are by this senseless assassination, please donate to Planned Parenthood or Medical Students for Choice in honor of Dr Tiller.

Fuck tiller... murderous

Fuck tiller... murderous piece of shit...


Seems morality is perceptual. I find these comment immoral - to wish death on any person is repugnant - so much for "pre-life" really it's just "pro- the way I believe is right and death to everyone else."

Very well

We can count on you, then, to oppose any death sentence verdict against the perpetrator...

That's obvious. "to wish

That's obvious. "to wish death on any person is repugnant" didn't have the fine print "except if I really don't like that person".

"A death for a death" is a barbaric concept propagated by barbaric people and literature.

oh no. They should be

oh no. They should be WATERBOARDED.

It's the American, and "Christian" thing to do.

I think it's fascinating how

I think it's fascinating how mindless liberal Democrat have been brainwashed into thinking the capital punishment of a murderer is wrong but the murder of an innocent and viable human life (fetus=baby in Latin by the way; the next time I see a bumper sticker that says "it's not a baby it's a fetus", they are in danger of losing the bumper),that it's just a cellular mass (in the 3rd trimester) and eliminating it is fine.

A hard rain is gonna fall...and we'll all have a lot to answer for. Yeah I'm against the death penalty too.

Or to satisfy your reasoning the other way, the perpetrator in this case is only guilty of committing a late term abortion on the doctor. How's that?

Or how about charging Kathleen Sebelius and other liberals in power in Kansas that wouldn't let the Attorney General and the Kansas court system render justice on the egregious bastard with accessory in the murder of the doctor. If the law had worked the way it was supposed to, people frustrated with the evil of late term abortions committed on an assembly line wouldn't have felt like they had to take the law into their own hands.

Hate to tell you this, but

Hate to tell you this, but Dr. Tiller performed abortions in circumstances whether a) the fetus was not viable or b) the mother's life was in danger.

I will pray for your soul, since you clearly are so blinded by hatred and sloganeering that you have no compassion for the women who will die, the children who will be orphaned, and the husbands who will be widowed because Dr. Tiller is no longer alive.

Killer Tiller

One may argue that no one had the right to take the life of baby killer Tiller, but to make untrue statements such as, Tiller only performed abortions if the mother;s life was threatend or the baby wasn't viable has no basis in truth. That is such bull and either the persons spouting it remains intentionally ignorant, or lacks the honesty to keep the debate based in facts.

Not one abortion Tiller ever performed saved the life of anyone. He was a murderer. He performed late term abortions for any reason and about $800. He killed babies due to any anamolies; down syndrome, missing toes or fingers, incorrect sex of the child, parents broke up, possible health problems and just because the mother didn't want a kid. Tiller didn't care why as long as he got his money. TIller would have made a great Nazi.

Children with only nine fingers are an abomination anyway

So you have access to confidential medical records and can prove that Dr. Tiller performed abortion after abortion just for the hell of it? Or maybe you're just another right-winger curled up in the corner of your own little fantasy, eyes closed, hands over your ears and totally ignoring any information that doesn't fit into your myopic, microscopic and terrified world view?

"Not one abortion Tiller ever performed saved the life of anyone." See, this is an absolute statement and they are made only by stupid people, like you. Stupid people use absolute statements all the time because they are incapable of real debate and ohhh god thinking hurts so much. Believing is easy however. And it feels so good to believe in things, regardless of the facts, doesn't it?

For instance, even though the purpose of late term abortion is to preserve the life of the mother in the face of serious medical issues, if you can only believe hard enough that Dr. Tiller was a baby-murdering Nazi who most likely sucked their precious little eyeballs out of their heads with his own lips before shanking them with a rusty screwdriver then it must be so! All evidence to the contrary be damned. Facts and evidence and truth are for people who can't shut down the analytical parts of their brains through sheer conviction, unlike you.

Congratulations. You, like every other right wing loon have figured out how to lobotomize yourself on a 24 hour basis. You must be proud.

So you just keep believing that you don't have to provide facts to back up your claims, that just saying something makes it so as long as you FEEL strongly enough about it. And also keep telling yourself that you're not a member of the Christian Taliban and an enemy of American democracy.

Just keep believing and it'll all come true.

big deal

Another murder who cares how many murders happen everyday and for what reason does not matter. I am pro life but i do not want to judged women who make this decision. I would not want to be in there shoes. Lets get real he preformed a legal medical procedure and he can tell god it was legal. Lets see how far that goes I could be wrong here I will bet answering for 60 thousand abortions and standing on the pretense it was legal won't cut it. Hey slavery was legal too. LOL fuck tiller just another dead rich asshole who will try to buy his way into heaven. Fuck that piece of shit church he went too. boo hoo to all those parishoners that witnessed it. A tough world I say.

So pathetic... if you think a

So pathetic... if you think a god is going to be waiting to judge him after he dies, where do you crazy people come in all this? If you were so comfortable with him being judged you loons wouldn't have shot him.

A tough world you say? Didn't you just finish crying about him killing babies? How about: He killed fetuses. Boo hoo, a tough world I say.

Not Viable

"but the murder of an innocent and viable human life"

Yabbut, the late-term abortions aren't done on viable pregnancies; either the foetus is non-viable or the pregnancy is likely not survivable for the mother (in which case it's a matter of choosing whom you're going to kill, innit?). Killing Tiller won't save any babies, only increase the total amount of suffering in the world.

His patients were women who really did not want to have to be there, did not want to have to give up a wanted child and did not enjoy being forced, be medical circumstance, to make those kinds of decisions. All this does is make such situations even more horrible and more dangerous.

"brainwashed into thinking the capital punishment of a murderer is wrong "

The only "pro-life" folks I have any respect for are the "whole-cloth" pro-lifers, because they at least have a consistency of vision, purpose, and action; it doesn't stop at "no abortions"; it has to include actively opposing the death penalty, opposing war, and working to alleviate poverty, support parents and children after childbirth (as well as working to provide pre-natal care to increase the odds of a healthy baby), and generally make doing the right thing easier for everyone else. (And even then, these babies couldn't be saved -- sometimes a pregnancy just goes tragically wrong.) Anybody who supports the death penalty or war is, by definition not pro-life! Pro-forced-childbirth maybe, anti-women and anti-choice yes, but nor pro-life.

To be pro-life and be effective at it, you have to be motivated by love, not revenge, not the power to dictate to others, not hatred or anger. If you can revel in the assassination of another human, you have no business calling yourself "pro-life",

fetus != baby

fetus=baby in Latin

No, it doesn't. Fetus in Latin means "the bearing, bringing forth, or hatching of young". It's a verb. The English word "fetus" means, and has meant, "unborn young of a viviparous vertebrate" since Middle English (ie, about 800 years).

In Latin, "parvulus" means "child", or "infantus" means "infant".

BTW, Dr. Tiller was charged with violating Kansas abortion law just this past March, and after five days of testimony and just one hour of deliberation the jury acquitted him.

Your mastery of the facts seems to be quite flawed.

There's not a lot of fine print in the 6th Commandment.

Since when did "Thou Shalt Not Kill" suddenly not apply to someone you think "deserves" it?

And who are you to judge another man? Isn't that the Lord's job, and His alone?

Killing vs. Murder

When you get right down to it, the Ten Commandments (for the moment, let's not get into the fact that there's at least three different versions of them, depending on whether you're Catholic, Protestant, or Jewish), aren't a great guide for modern ethics. "Thou Shalt Not Kill," for example, is very much a contextual thing. For instance, it's really much better to translate it as "Thou shalt not murder" rather than "kill." Killing is a very broad term that can range from swatting a fly to disemboweling your neighbor who snores too loud. Murder, on the other hand, is a legalistic term, which boils down to "Don't kill members of your tribe or your tribe's allies without permission from the elders." So, it's really an ambiguous statement that's dependent on a lot of factors. Truthfully, if you look at either the Old or New Testament, I think that the pro-Lifers, including Dr. Tiller's assassin, have been behaving very much in a Christian manner. And we could use less of it, frankly.


Too bad Tiller didn't abort you, then we would not have to put up with your logic, arrogance and self righteousness.


So you're saying abortion is okay then? Make up your mind!!!

Nope - they are saying "Logic

Nope - they are saying "Logic is bad"

Look, dick--I'm going to take

Look, dick--I'm going to take this out on you a little bit, because you're the one who came here to post evil, hateful junk like this.

Each of you hateful folks should maybe do a little bit of research before you decide to take a stalwart stance against somebody simply doing their job. Maybe find out how many late-term abortions are elective (in other words, optional or not necessary to continue living). Maybe you'd see that the only people who get late-term abortions are people who desperately need them to save their lives--and even then, states like mine (Georgia) will still heap the pressure on you if the baby has a chance of living. Late-term abortions are meant to save lives, at the sacrifice of those who would die or were already dead to begin with. Or maybe you should focus on the Twitterers who want to curse Tiller's name, and yet think that abortions should be fine if you can determine if the child would be--heaven forbid!--gay or transgendered. Why don't you think about yourself, and your own business, instead of cursing someone who doesn't affect you, your life, any of your decisions, or the laws that govern you (unless of course you happen to need an abortion).


You know, the Nuremburg trials were all about wonderful people just doing their jobs.

We hung them because they were bad, meanie boys. Doctors in america are good boys and they are worthy of praise. Especially ones who tear apart infants with a vacuum cleaner.

We have a winner

It only took 64 comments before we got a Nazi analogy. your prize is you get to go google "godwins law"


"that overuse of Nazi and Hitler comparisons should be avoided, because it robs the valid comparisons of their impact. " to quote wiki, a source as trustworthy as Godwin.

the thing is, this generation, the post 50's generation of adults, is completely, childishly, selfishly numb to the mind framework of those who murder out of duty vs. kill out of duty. There is a difference. It's not a far stretch.

the debate that follows this sort of comment normally proves its existence, as if that is a debate. As if we feel the imperitive to arrest police people and soldiers, which we dont. We do feel the imperative to arrest and convict drive by shooters however.

godwin was a very bored indivual. it is like moore's law. it isnt a law, they get photographed smuggly smiling and geeks like to quote their words. Opinions are more important than trite attempts to create a self serving law that governs nothing but the narowminded edification of western post-liberal thought.


There are several inconsistencies in the viewpoints you have committed here, Anonymous. The first is that you assume that your view of a generation seems to be ill-conceived. The post-50s generation, also known as the baby boomers, directly following World War II, which was a time of great social change for America already. They grew up to the tune of the civil rights movement, the Vietnam war, the anti-war movement, and the Woman's rights movement. Following them was Generation X, which was characterized by the end of the Cold war and an emphasis on money and amoral lifestyles. How these two generations, neither of which i'm sure you are referencing, can be described as numb to the difference between murder out of duty(i don't really understand what you are talking about here, but I will try) and killing out of duty is beyond me. These are two vastly different generations of people full of their own cultures and counter-cultures, but both of them have the trait of sensitivity towards war.

As for your very brief comment on the nature of murder, it seems that you cater to the idea that intent determines the moral standing of an action. The problem with your acceptance of police killing people and not of drive by shooters killing people is a debate that rests entirely in your head. Morals have never been considered universal, and it is your willingness to ignore this that makes you feel morally superior. It is always those who feel morally superior that commit the greatest atrocities in the name of their morality, as evidenced by the twitters that this entire thread is based on.

Lastly, you should look up edification, it seems that you do not fully grasp it's meaning. It also seems that you've confused post-liberalism with a contrived generalization of all those who think murder is bad (namely Americans who chuckle at "reductio ad Hitlerium". If you had considered that Godwin's law makes no assertion on the morality of Hitler references, you might have realized that your entire post was pointless. Instead, you have quoted Godwin's opinion on his law and managed to misunderstand and then correlate a handful of other topics to this initial misunderstanding.

Regarding the rest of this thread, I will leave you with another quote which summarizes Albert Einstein's feelings for those people who have twittered.

"He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."

Another idiot heard from

Godwin's law in action. Your ignorance is abysmal.

Your inability to distinguish

Your inability to distinguish between, say, a fetus without a brain or skull, and a Jew is - to be honest - pretty insulting to the Hebrew people.

You should apologize.

Straw man

There are no medical situations in America in which childbirth threatens a mother's life. All such scenarios are resolved via Cesarean section delivery at the appropriate time. The "life of the mother" argument is a canard.

You ...

[sysadmin note - Post deleted due to no having any actual content beyond an ad hominem attack.]

It's a blessing that there

It's a blessing that there are no ectopic pregnancies in America. Who'd have thought you guys would be so advanced?

Wrong you ignorant buffoon

My wife was given a choice (there's that nasty word) at 23 wks gestation: induce labor and deliver a likely dead infant, or have her liver explode and have them both die (go google HELLP syndrome and shut the hell up). We figured it was better to lose one than both. In retrospect, I wish the doctors/hospital had given us the option of an abortion (which is what the c-section would have been) - dealing with it took years for me, and she's never gotten over it. 30+ hours of labor, a lot of which she didn't remember, and some she still has nightmares about. All because the hospital was a religious one and the doctors didn't want to get their hands dirty. Take your loving-God-all-things-have-purpose and all-things-can-be-fixed-by-Cesarean garbage and stick it where the sun don't shine, you willfully ignorant pile of hypocrisy.


Don't display your ignorance.

Had an abortion at 8 weeks

Had an abortion at 8 weeks pregnant. I won't justify any moral reasons--one because I don't have to, but two because I originally went because I lost my job and was not going to make a child's life unnecessarily hard or shunt them into a government shelter with loads of other children. It started out as an elective abortion. But when I got to the clinic I ended up needing a whole ton of work, because it turned out that I wasn't having such a hard time because of stress, but because of some type of blood difference between me and the baby. We were attacing each other, and either the baby had to go or it was going to take me down with it. Even then, I was the only one in a crowded clinic that was there for an elective abortion at all. Don't for a moment tell me that we've come so far that childbirth poses no dangers.


Of course, because all those women who died during childbirth in the past were merely victims of vapours. Idiot.


I'm tired of people thinking Tiller only killed babies with medical issues. My sister visited him twice and Tiller killed her babies. She was in her late twenties, in perfect health, and the babies would have been healthy. They were convenience abortions. Yes I also blame her, but had Tiller not been in business, the abortions would not have happened, and my mom would have two extra grandchildren and my daughter two more cousins.

I don't believe you. The same

I don't believe you. The same or very similar stories circulate all over, curiously always with conspicuous absence of evidence.
So, names, dates. Name of the other doctor who had to have given consent for the procedure. Do you think we don't know that Christians and antichoicers lie just as shamelessly as anyone else, if not more to compensate for the chronic lack of factual support?

So ... you lost a son?

So ... you lost a son?

wooooah SNAP!

wooooah SNAP!

To clarify

Dr. Tiller did do elective abortions primarily during the first trimester, when over 90% of abortions occur. Second and third term abortions are much rarer and are usually done due to threat of death to the mother, non-viability of the fetus, etc. In Kansas, it is not legal to perform a late term abortion except for these circumstances. Those who comment (not that you did) that Tiller killed late-term babies on a whim are misinformed.

How about "Fuck you?"

Right, like you're pro-life, Moby. Funny how some "Anonymous" coward posts crap like that in THIS post.


You show those anonymous posters, Beth!

Only 1 Beth exists in the USA!

Shut up, you murder-loving,

Shut up, you murder-loving, terrorist ghoul.

lol hypocrasy, you better

lol hypocrasy, you better shut the hell up.
We don't like your kind

What kind is that? The people

What kind is that? The people who disagree with you. Listen you little fucker the people that have abortions are not doing it because its trendy or because they fucking feel like it. They, for one reason or another, have decided they can not go through with the pregnancy. It fucking tears them apart emotionally, the last thing they need is to see YOU and YOUR fucking kind picketing an abortion clinic calling her a baby killer.

Religion has NO place in society any more.

The person your responding to

The person your responding to could just be pretending to make the pro-life side look bad. Many malicious picketers are actually in favor of what they picket against. Especially on the internet.

I cant belive what i am

I cant belive what i am reading!!!!!

You are saying its bad to kill a not born (from a rape for example) but it is ok to kill another person? and you talk about the bible? can any of you remember the... "You wont kill"

You are happy because a man´s been killed!!!!!

And his family?

You all live in a double moral... and even think you are good Gods fllowers... you´ll all go to hell, if it exists....

i would be very sad if this would happen but image your husband is killed, you are rapped and you have to live all your life looking at your not-wanted son, to your husbands assesins face!!! i would like to see your faith there...

And let me tell you something about the bible... The devil/Satan kills 10 people and God 2.391.421 people in the Bible.... yes, God is love.........

P.D: Sorry for my english, it isn't very good







Tiller got what he deserved and so will you

Tiller was more evil than Hitler. Hitler didn't kill Christians. Tiller murdered innocence and raped the world of beautiful children of our savior. OUR Savior. Not just mine. But yours too. Regardless of what you might think. Tiller makes me sick. The man (or woman) that bravely sent him to hell should be praised. There's no doubt that BHO and the rest of the liberal baby killers will give this hero the death penalty. At which point we REAL christians should move to have this man canonized. He is a saint. In every sense of the word. The world needs to wake up. The two biggest problems facing this world is the abortion holocaust and radical Islam. Both should be stamped out. And nothing short than any army of Christ will accomplish that.

I guess the 6th commandment

I guess the 6th commandment is more of bendable rule then? not really a commandment?

RE: 6th Commandment

You'll see.
