Earlier today, I completed an article comparing the Planned Parenthood shooting with the August 2012 shooting at the Family Research Council's headquarters in D.C. If it is not up by later today, hopefully it will be up tomorrow.
The article does not mention Dr. Ben Carson's comments on the Planned Parenthood shooting so I thought I would comment on them here instead. During an appearance on ABC This Week, Martha Raddatz asked Carson if he agreed with the assessment of Planned Parenthood's Vicki Cowart that "extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country." The good doctor replied in this manner:
Unfortunately, there's a lot of extremism coming from all areas. It's one of the biggest problems that I think is threatening to tear our country apart. We get into our separate corners and we hate each other; we want to destroy those with whom we disagree.
It comes from both sides. So, you know, there is -- there is no saint here in this -- in this equation.
