MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews argued that “some people’s words are encouraging this kind of behavior” and “Carly Fiorina seems to be” “enjoying it” while discussing the shooting at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs on Monday.
Matthews said that while most pro-lifers “think there]s a difference, essential difference between abortion, and gunning people down, essential difference. And they do believe it. And therefore, they all see this as a tragedy.” He added, “But some people’s words are encouraging this kind of behavior. And I’m sorry, that — I heard it in the guy’s voice…I heard him say, ‘No more baby parts.’ To me, that was motive.”
Matthews further said, “the people who are pro-life…jumped too quickly in attacking what they thought the liberal media was going to do. Let the liberal media blame the bad guy and the enemies of planned parenthood first, and then attack. Don’t go first. Because when you go first, you make people think, like this guy, that you’re enjoying it, like Carly Fiorina seems to be.”
