It appears someone may have taken Mitt Romney’s campaign trail rhetoric a bit too seriously.
“Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that,” Romney said on the trail in Kirkwood, Missouri, a few weeks ago. Well, someone tried to do just that in Grand Chute, Wisconsin.
There, on Sunday night, an unknown person planted a homemade explosive device.
The extent of damage wasn’t immediately released.
Police think the device was placed about 7:30 p.m.
Obviously it’s not just Romney making disparaging comments about Planned Parenthood in the ongoing War on Women. Federal and state legislators, as well as anti-abortion advocacy groups, have made PP public enemy #1 over the past few years (armed with incredible amounts of disinformation).
There’s no known connection between rhetoric and actions yet, and there may not be, but maybe PP’s opponents should come out and say “Stop bombing shit” as a precaution anyway.
UPDATE: Rick Santorum did just that, condemning the bombing: “Violence is never the answer, and I will always condemn any and all violent attacks against our fellow Americans. In this country, we resolve our differences through political discussion and free and fair elections – never by violence. This upcoming election is about restoring freedom and liberty in America, and a key part of that is to restore a culture that values human life and the dignity of all Americans. While we can and should work to defund Planned Parenthood and push back against government mandates that force Americans and religious institution to violate their faith, violence against our fellow citizens has no place in a freedom-loving America.”
