Randall Terry

Coulter: 'I Love Randall Terry'

Last week we noted that Ann Coulter would be headlining a fundraiser for anti-abortion zealot Randall Terry when he brings his loophole-exploiting presidential campaign to Oklahoma.

Today, Coulter was interviewed by KRMG's Dan Potter about her upcoming appearance and asked whether she supported some of Terry's more outrageous stunts and statements, like his statements regarding the murder to Dr. George Tiller.

Clearly uncomfortable, Coulter hedged a bit before declaring that "violence will break out" when the Constitution is trampled upon and stated that the "current score" between murdered babies and murdered doctors was approximately fifty million to seven: 

Potter: Let's talk about your appearance in Broken Arrow on March 3, your speaking at a fundraiser for the founder of Operation Rescue, Randall Terry who is running for president on the Democratic ticket in Oklahoma. Why'd you take the gig?

Coulter: Well, for one thing, this is what I do for a living; I give speeches. But I love Randall Terry and I must say, if he beats President Obama in the Democratic primary, I'm going to be torn ... do I support Randall Terry or Mitt Romney, whom I've been pushing for the Republican Party? So it could end up being a very difficult choice for me.

Potter: You say you love Randall Terry, He's famous nationally for his efforts to shut down abortion clinics. He's used many graphic images in his protests. He even had words of support for the guy who gunned down that obstetrician in the Wichita church service back in 2009. You're cool with all that?

Coulter: Ummmmm .... well, I'm going to discuss the issue of the abortion clinic doctors being shot in my speech. But, by in large, the current score is, what, about fifty million to seven in terms of the number of people their side has killed and the number of people our side has killed. But I'll give you a brief preview, which is when you take democracy away from people, violence will break out. That is not, itself, an endorsement, but it is a suggesting that we go back to living under the Constitution.

Ann Coulter to Fundraise for Randall Terry

As we've noted before, anti-abortion zealot Randall Terry is currently running a Potemkin presidential campaign for the sole purpose of exploiting a loophole that allows him to air graphic anti-abortion ads on television under the guise that they are campaign ads.

Terry's quixotic campaign has been relegated to the fringes as he's constantly struggled to even raise the money needed to run many ads.  But perhaps his effort will be getting a boost, as he is reporting that none other than Mitt Romney supporter Ann Coulter will be headlining a fundraising rally for him:

Best Selling author and political pundit Ann Coulter will be the keynote speaker at a fundraising rally for Randall Terry for President in the Tulsa Oklahoma area on March 3rd.

Date: Saturday, March 3, 2012.

Time: 6:00 P.M. private fundraising reception; 7:00 P.M. Rally.

Location: Arrow Heights Baptist Church, 3201 South Elm Place, Broken Arrow (just outside Tulsa), Oklahoma.

...

"We are thrilled to have Miss Coulter's formidable talents and skills give us a boost in our efforts in Oklahoma. I'm certain the evening will be inspirational and motivational.

"If I -- the 'extremist candidate' -- receive 5% or 6% of the vote in the Oklahoma primary, it sends a serious rebuke to the Obama campaign. Moreover, it shows that a sizable percentage of voters are willing to defect from a sitting President in their own party, because of his attacks on human life and religious liberty. That would spell big trouble for the Obama camp in the swing states in the general election."

We wonder if Coulter realizes that Terry also had hopes for running similar ads targeting Romney.  Maybe if Coulter helps to raise enough money for him, Terry will finally be able to do so! 

Randall Terry Acolyte Wants to Run Graphic Anti-Abortion Ads During the Super Bowl

Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry has been running for the nomination of the Democratic Party in order to exploit a loophole that allows him to run graphic ads against abortion rights, and as we have previously reported, one of his followers, David Lewis, is even running in the Republican primary against Speaker John Boehner as a “Tea Party candidate.” Lewis claims he is running because Boehner withdrew a measure that would have defunded Planned Parenthood, and now he wants to run graphic ads opposing abortion rights during the Super Bowl:

"Mr. Boehner is a Washington insider who is the epitome of the establishment. I am a Tea Party candidate who stands for life, liberty, and justice under God. Voters in Ohio's Eighth District will have an opportunity to vote their conscience in March.

"Mr. Boehner has had multiple opportunities to defund Planned Parenthood since he has become Speaker of the House. Sadly, Mr. Boehner has shown that he will compromise even if innocent lives are at stake. I will never compromise on any bill that gives money to child-killers. As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives I would work to make it a criminal act to kill a baby from conception until birth."



Mr. Lewis will be running ads during this primary season -- including on Super Bowl Sunday -- showing the mutilated remains of aborted babies. Because of FEC and FCC regulations, television stations with an FCC license are required to run the TV commercials of federal candidates 45 days before a primary.

Mr. Lewis states:

"Unborn babies deserve a voice, that is why I fully intend to run a local ad during the Super Bowl showing dead babies that have been murdered by abortion. It is time for Americans to come face-to-face with the abortion holocaust."

Randall Terry Warns that Obama 'Supports Slavery' for his 'Federal Plantation,' Might Target Romney

Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry appeared on The Steve Deace Show on Monday where he discussed his strategy of running for the Democratic nomination for president in order to use a legal loophole that allows him to run graphic ads against abortion rights. Terry told Deace that voters shouldn’t trust Obama on any issue because of his support for abortion rights, saying that Obama both “supports murder” and “supports slavery,” and will have you in his “slave labor force for his federal plantation.” He also informed Deace, a fierce critic of Mitt Romney, that he may include Romney, who was pro-choice and supportive of Roe v. Wade in the past, in his graphic ads in New Hampshire:

Deace: Couldn’t a case be made, if you can’t count on somebody to protect innocent life you can’t count on somebody to provide you a job?

Terry: Well one would make the case. I think that you could be someone who supports murder but also someone who supports slavery, and I think that’s Obama. He needs us as a slave labor force for his federal plantation, so if you escape the abortionist’s knife then he’s got a happy job for you at the federal plantation.



Terry: We are discussing our ads for New Hampshire and the discussion me and my team are having is to whether or not we will put images of Obama and Mitt Romney in the ad, because in my opinion, Mitt Romney is Obama with white skin. There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between them on most issues. So, if I can go after Obama in New Hampshire and also hurt Romney a little bit in the process, I’d be happy.

To Hell with Health Care Reform: Religious Right Leaders Attack Obama, Spout GOP Dogma about "Socialism" While Fanning Flames on Abortion

Much of the Religious Right's organizing energy has been devoted to incendiary and false claims about the administration's alleged stealth plan to force every health plan to cover - and force all doctors to provide - abortion services. None of these approaches are actually included in the plans working their way through Congress. In fact, anti-choice members of Congress are using health reform to institute a new nationwide abortion ban in private insurance plans taking away coverage women already have.

Free speech, Irresponsible Speech, and the Climate of Intolerance in 2009

Shortly after anti-government terrorist Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City in April 1995, President Bill Clinton urged Americans to challenge those who use powerful political and media platforms to promote the kind of inflammatory falsehoods that poison public discourse, make civil conversation impossible, and can ultimately lead to violence. The reaction from right-wing leaders of the day was sadly predictable and by now familiar: they claimed that Clinton was seeking to "silence" voices of dissent, even though his speech affirmed that the First Amendment protects both the purveyors of irresponsible speech and those who challenge him.
