NEPA: Remind me not to eat at the Beer Deli in Forty Fort, Pa.!

I bet Randall Terry and these people don't give a FLYING FUCK about torturing people and the illegal wars going on or the millions of children we've killed worldwide! Maybe they're wearing the shirts below at the rally! Always, it's ignored, but predominantly these people are also against birth control! And let's face another thing: they're Republicans!

Check out the WB Times Leader's lousy coverage here, they really dug into Randall Terry's background (sarcastic):

WB Times Leader: National activist opposes Supreme Court nominee. Randall A. Terry speaks to group in Forty Fort (at the Beer Deli) about his anti-abortion stance.

In terms of the political theory involved, the basic question is a stark and simple one: if you cannot control your own body, what other rights can you possibly have? If your body is not yours, what does it matter if you can freely express your political and religious convictions?

Who is Randall Terry?

“Our mission is to recruit, train and unleash the next generation to crush child killer,” he said. Maybe the next time you have something to eat at the Beer Deli, they'll try and recruit your kid! I find it ironic, that they make profits on selling alcohol.

2005 - On his own website, Terry noted that he "has been arrested over forty times for peaceful opposition to abortion," but he neglected to mention the details of his anti-abortion activities with Operation Rescue in the 1980s and 1990s. In an April 22, 2004, Washington Post article, staff writer Michael Powell summarized some of Terry's anti-abortion actions:

In 1988, Terry and his legions started standing in front of local abortion clinics, screaming and pleading with pregnant women to turn away. They tossed their bodies against car doors to keep abortion patients from getting out. They waved crucifixes and screamed "Mommy, Mommy" at the women. When Terry commanded, hundreds went jellyfish-limp and blockaded the "death clinics."

In 1989, a "Holy Week of Rescue" shut down a family planning clinic in Los Angeles. More than 40,000 people were arrested in these demonstrations over four years. Subtlety wasn't Terry's thing -- he described Planned Parenthood's founder, Margaret Sanger, as a "whore" and an "adulteress" and arranged to have a dead fetus presented to Bill Clinton at the 1992 Democratic National Convention.

Well, I guess this says it all, what a riot, huh? Torture is funny! Maybe they should waterboard this woman and everyone who buys this shirt. Now THAT would be funny! Really, it's not "conservatives", it's Republicans. Real conservatives are against torturing people. It should seriously say "Republican T-Shirts", NOT "conservative T-Shirts". That's giving conservatives a bad name they don't deserve. How advanced are we as a country, when a large percentage of our population is actually FOR torturing people or ignoring the fact that we torture people?

Bush's 'Smoking Gun' Witness Found Dead

Torture must be punished. Justice requires hearings, prosecutions at the highest levels against those who sullied our nation's cherished values

So now it turns out that apparently Speaker Pelosi was right when she claimed that the CIA lied to her (and the Congress) in their intelligence briefings on torture, er, "harsh interrogation techniques."

It has now been thoroughly documented that: "top CIA officials have concealed significant actions from all members of Congress" and "misled members" from 2001 until this week.

I hope you realize, these people who want accountability for Bush administration torturing people are serious and aren't going away:
