The Left Column
(HuffPo) ESPN anchor Robert Flores openly wondered why it is that the media tends to get so riled up about some NFL touchdown dances and not others during a Monday episode of "SportsCenter" -- not so subtly implying that the answer boils down to race.
He spoke his truth after showing a clip of Kansas City Chiefs' tight end "hitting the quan" following a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
(TPM) Not only have Alabama's attempts to defund Planned Parenthood Southeast been blocked by the courts, Alabama taxpayers will also have to foot the bill in the more than $51,000 in legal fees for the reproductive health organization, the Montgomery Advertiser reported, under a settlement filed in federal court Monday morning. The agreement still must be approved by a U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson, according to the Montgomery Advertiser.
(CBS News) Business mogul Donald Trump demanded on Monday that CNN, the host of the next GOP debate, pay him $5 million dollars to participate, with the proceeds to be donated to veterans.
This time, Trump made the demands at a rally in Macon, Georgia, prompted by what he deemed the unfair treatment by the network of his candidacy, including a meeting with African-American pastors earlier in the day at Trump Tower. At first he seemed unsure. Trump asked the crowd if he should make the payment a condition of his participation in the debate.
Author lists on Twitter all the ‘acts of terrorism’ she lived through as a Planned Parenthood worker
(Raw Story) Author Bryn Greenwood revealed on Twitter over the weekend the “acts of terrorism” she had experienced while working at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas.
Following last week’s shootings at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado, Greenwood devoted her Twitter timeline on Sunday to explaining that domestic terrorism was a fact of life at some clinics.
(Raw Story) Speaking with Martha Raddatz on ABC’s This Week, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) — who is virulently anti-abortion — said he would leave the call on Robert Lewis Dear’s shooting rampage at the Colorado Springs health clinic to the Justice Department.
“It’s a tragedy. It’s, I think, a mental health crisis,” said McCaul, adding, “I don’t think it would fall under quite the definition of domestic terrorism, although I’ll leave that to the Justice Department to make that determination.”
(Raw Story) In 1997, Dear’s then wife, Pamela Ross, once called the police to accuse him of domestic violence, The New York Times reported. Ross said that Dear could have flashes of anger, but usually he would later apologize.
Dear was politically conservative, religious, owned guns and believed that abortion was wrong — but he was not obsessed with any of these issues, Ross said.
(Think Progress) Friday afternoon, one week after elected officials all over the country tried to block Syrian refugees from entering their states in an apparent effort to fight terrorism, a white man in Colorado committed what appears to be an act of terrorism in a Planned Parenthood clinic.
Though the details of Robert Lewis Dear’s motives for killing three people in the clinic and injuring nine others are still being revealed, Dear reportedly told law enforcement “no more baby parts,” an apparent reference to heavily edited videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress, which numerous politicians have cited to falsely claim that Planned Parenthood sells “aborted baby parts.” Dear’s actions, in other words, appear to be an act of politically motivated terrorism directed against an institution widely reviled by conservatives.
(Think Progress) Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is the latest presidential candidate trying to downplay the role anti-abortion rhetoric may have played in motivating the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs Friday afternoon. When a reporter asked him at an Iowa campaign stop Sunday evening about suspect Robert Lewis Dear saying he was motivated by “no more baby parts,” Cruz countered that he’s also been reported to be a “transgendered leftist activist.”
