Ex-Soldier Saved Lives With Dying Breath at Planned Parenthood Massacre

The right-wing extremists leading the Republican Party are now in full backpedal mode after one of their disciples murdered 3 people and shot 9 at a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado. This is a direct result of the hate speech directed at Liberals and Minorities. This brave ex-Soldier perhaps prevented the toll from being worse…

Iraq vet used dying moments to warn others after getting shot by Planned Parenthood terrorist

Ke’Arre Stewart, the Iraq War veteran gunned down by right-wing terrorist Robert Louis Dear on Friday, used his dying moments to tell people inside the building to take cover.

According to NBC News, Stewart, 29, had stepped outside the building to use his cell phone when he was shot by Dear, who killed two other people and injured nine in the attack. Stewart, a devoted husband and father of two, rushed into the building in spite of his injuries and shouted for everyone to take cover.

His brother Leyonte Chandler told Today on Monday morning that Stewart’s military training must have compelled him to help others in the line of fire.

“I believe that’s his military instinct, you know: Leave no soldier behind, leave no civilian behind, just leave no one behind,” Chandler said. “So he ran back inside, trying to help out others. I don’t know where he was at, as far as how many more breaths he had, but he knew. And before his time ran out I guess that was his main priority…to help and save other lives.”

“He tried to run back inside the building — well, he did — and tell the other people inside, you know, ‘Take cover, get down.’ People started taking cover, hiding in bathrooms and whatnot,” Chandler recounted.

“People were terrified, people were crying and scared, seeing other people get shot,” he continued. “I believe my brother put his life on the line to prevent that. That’s definitely heroic.”

During his five-hour rampage at the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood location, Dear killed police officer Garrett Swasey and 29-year-old mother of two Jennifer Markovsky.

When police apprehended Dear, he revealed to them that the shooting was motivated by his belief that Planned Parenthood is engaged in the illegal sale of fetal organs, a right-wing myth propagated by the anti-choice movement and anti-abortion extremist groups like the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), which released a series of misleading videos accusing the health provider of running a ruthless, bloodthirsty trade of embryonic human tissue.

“No more baby parts!” ranted Dear to police.

Anti-abortion conservatives like presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz have tried to defray blame for the shooting, making false claims that Dear was a “transgendered leftist activist.”

However, many are calling on the media and public officials to call Dear what he really is, a right-wing, Christian terrorist.

Republican in Mississippi Lets Racist Cat Out of the Bag

Yep…Dem ebil black folks is going to steal you hard workin’ white folks money…

Busted: Watch Mississippi lawmaker openly race-baiting at GOP rally to oppose black school funding

Video shot by a local radio broadcaster caught Republican Mississippi state Rep. Bubba Carpenter using racial language to suggest to fellow Republicans that a ballot initiative to improve education was actually a plot to fund black schools at a cost to white schools.

The Clarion-Ledger reported that Carpenter was filmed by WMRG while speaking to the Tishomingo County Midway Republican Rally about the danger of Initiative 42, which would give a Hinds County judge control of school funding if the Mississippi legislature failed to lift the state from its last place national ranking on education.

According to the Clarion-Ledger, Republicans in the state had been using the phrase “Hinds County judge” as a racial dog whistle because the county is predominately black and has two female black judges.

But Carpenter dropped the coded language in a plea to defeat the initiative.

“If 42 passes in its form, a judge in Hinds County, Mississippi, predominantly black — it’s going to be a black judge — they’re going to tell us where the state education money goes,” the lawmaker warned. “So what’s he going to do? ‘[Predominately white] Tishomingo County, you’ve got a little bit of extra money, we’re going to take a little bit of that — I can see the happening, it may not, but I can see it — we’re going to help [schools in predominately black] Rolling Fork because they don’t have as good a tax base as you guys do, so we’re going take a little bit of that money and we’re going to to transition it to Rolling Fork.’”

Carpenter promised the crowd that Gov. Phil Bryant and other top Republicans would “tell you the same thing.”

“There it is, folks,” the Clarion-Ledger‘s Sam Hall wrote. “Let’s all thank Bubba Carpenter for saying what he means and illustrating to the world the filthy rhetoric that still passes for political discourse by some here.”
