Liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is airing a one-hr special tonight at 9p EST about the murder of late-term abortionist George Tiller entitled, “The Assassination of Dr. Tiller.”

The subtitle provides Maddow’s angle: “New documentary looks into whether there were larger forces behind abortion doctor’s murder.” Here’s a clip, featuring a couple pro-lifers we know…

Troy Newman of Operation Rescue issued a press statement October 18 explaining why he allowed MSNBC to interview him, and I would likely have done the same thing, since I think we need to engage even those media outlets we know may not agree with us.

Yet Newman told me MSNBC misled him, never letting on it would be the obviously pro-abort commentator Maddow who ended up with his footage. She mentioned Newman’s statement on her show October 20, beginning at 1:45 on the clip, although pro-lifers will find the prior segment interesting as well…

The Kansas City Star today gives a synopsis of Maddow’s agenda:

Maddow, who co-created and narrated the film, said she did it to shed new light on the contentious case.

The film, 43 minutes long with commercial breaks, begins as a straightforward true-crime account.,,,

Then the film rewinds to tell the story of the 2 men and what led them to that fateful day….

But the film deviates often from the true-crime genre to make statements about the relationship between politics and violence.

Maddow describes “a growing sense of paranoia and anxiety” surrounding Tiller as the protests escalated….

Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman and Randall Terry, who helped lead the protests in the 1990s, and Mark Gietzen, chairman of the KS Coalition for Life, agreed to be interviewed by MSNBC.

According to a news release, Newman agreed to participate, despite reservations about Maddow’s pro-abortion-rights views, so that he could tell “the story of the tens of thousands of innocent babies killed by abortion during Tiller’s long and checkered abortion career.”

But that’s not all Newman has to say in the film. He’s shown describing at length a citywide leaflet campaign Operation Rescue undertook that linked Tiller with his “collaborators,” including area businesses such as cab companies. His account is sandwiched between quotes from Tiller’s friends and associates, who call the campaign intimidating and say it led to fears for their own safety as well as the safety of Tiller and his family.

“I don’t think they could wake up a day and feel secure in the knowledge that nothing was going to happen to them,” says Paul Ryding, who was at church the morning Tiller was shot.

Robinson, another doctor at the clinic, describes Roeder as a “rather dull guy” who was merely “reacting to an atmosphere of hatred.” She’s echoed by her colleague Sella, who says that “if the climate had not been like that… Scott Roeder would not have killed Dr. Tiller.”

In an interview with the Kansas City Star, Maddow, a Rhodes Scholar and progressive political activist, elaborated on what useful information she hoped her film would provide.

“Some folks think that extremely radical political tactics are necessary because of their strongly held views on abortion,” she said. “There are consequences for that. And those consequences have very little to do with abortion and everything to do with our tolerance for violence and extremism.”

So the pro-life movement is the first and only social justice movement in the history of the U.S. to have a violent fringe element.

In actuality the truth is just the opposite: The pro-life movement is the most peaceful social justice movement in the history of the U.S. It is ironically the very movement Maddow upholds that is the most violent “social justice” movement in the history of the U.S. To date Maddow and her ilk have enabled the killing of 50 million innocent children.

Pro-lifers must not let these intimidation tactics deter them from their work, to peacefully yet assertively press to end the heinous practice of legalized child killing.
