Right Wing Peach Pundit/Crazy Mofo Eric Erickson Uses Tiller's Death for Political Points

Guitarist Eric Erickson, so much cooler than our version.

As always, Macon city councilman and resident crazy mofo Eric Erickson has found a way to be crass and insolent in the face of tragedy. From his twitter:

You won't see people on the right rallying around G. Tiller's killer the way the left rallies around cop killers. #TCOT #RS

To start with, I never have rallied around a "cop killer." If he's talking about Troy Davis, that's because most people think Troy Davis is innocent, not because we're celebrating shooting cops. And people as far out as the Vatican have rallied around Davis's cause, and I wouldn't exactly lump the new Pope into leftist territory.

But it turns out he's wrong about people on the right, too.

The head of Operation Rescue, the big pro-life group I actually defended earlier this morning, came out with a statement of Erickson-level mean-spirited stupidity:

"George Tiller was a mass-murderer. We grieve for him that he did not have time to properly prepare his soul to face God. I am more concerned that the Obama Administration will use Tiller's killing to intimidate pro-lifers into surrendering our most effective rhetoric and actions. Abortion is still murder. And we still must call abortion by its proper name; murder.

"Those men and women who slaughter the unborn are murderers according to the Law of God. We must continue to expose them in our communities and peacefully protest them at their offices and homes, and yes, even their churches."

God, can't we just evolve past these numbskulls one day?
