Here’s a lead that the Washington Post has never written:

To many religious liberty advocates, it seemed only a matter of time before something like this happened. Ever since the summer, when the Southern Poverty Law Center called the Family Research Council a hate group for its opposition to same-sex marriage, threats against the organization increased. But on Wednesday, their worst fears came true: A man walked into their offices carrying Chik-Fil-A sandwiches and opened fire.

Police have not yet identified a clear motive for the shooting …

You probably never read this lead at the Washington Post in 2010, either:

To many pro-life advocates, it seemed only a matter of time before something like this happened. Ever since pro-abortion advocates pressured Pennsylvania and Philadelphia authorities into lax enforcement of clinic regulations, the threat of malpractice against the poverty-stricken area served by Kermit Gosnell’s clinic increased. A string of complaints and lawsuits — 46 lawsuits over a 32-year period — failed to prompt officials to close down his late-term abortion practice. But in 2010, the fears of pro-life advocates came true: a raid that targeted illegal drug sales exposed a butcherous practice that had murdered children born alive, and resulted in the death of at least one adult patient.

Police have not yet identified a clear motive for the inhumane charnel house uncovered in the drug raid …

However, if you read the Washington Post today, you did read this lead:

To many abortion rights advocates, it seemed only a matter of time before something like this happened.

Ever since the summer, when an antiabortion group accused Planned Parenthood of illegally selling fetal tissue, threats against the organization had escalated to unprecedented levels, abortion providers say. They stepped up collaboration with the FBI and local police and stiffened security at clinics. But on Friday, their worst fears came true: A man walked into a health center in Colorado Springs and opened fire.

Police have not yet identified a clear motive for the shooting …

So let’s get this straight. When a lunatic shoots up a Family Research Council office, it has nothing to do with its political opposition. When an abortionist runs loose because public officials are too intimidated to enforce the laws that do exist, it has nothing to do with political support for abortion. But when a lunatic shoots up an abortion clinic, it’s the fault of millions of Americans who oppose abortion, and who argue peacefully for limits on the practice and better oversight of those who operate in the industry?

Even when “police have not yet identified a clear motive for the shooting”?

The shootings in a clinic and the deaths of two people are horrific acts that everyone with a lick of sense and humanity abhors. But what the Washington Post and pro-abortion advocates are conducting in its wake is an attack on free speech and the political process, not to mention the unconscionable smearing of millions of Americans. It’s disgusting, manipulative, exploitative, and un-American. Shame on them, and shame on the Washington Post for its egregious bias.
