They're a rare breed

Who says it's impossible for me to agree with a liberal Democrat?

From Friday's letters to the editor in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Editor -- While Jonathan Tan (Letters, Dec. 25) and I agree in objecting to bomb attacks on abortion mills, I regret that Tan is not aware of two important items. It is not just Christian fundamentalists but many other concerned Americans who strongly object to abortion and find it a heinous act, and most of the violence that occurs in and around such establishments is committed by skilled abortionists whose chief talent lies in the efficient use of violence against helpless human beings.

Of course, it is in the self-interest of those who profit from such lucrative establishments to perpetuate the myth that only extreme conservatives disapprove of abortion. Many liberal Democrats, including myself, detest abortion just as we do any other form of murder.

Here, here Paul.

The debate is so reminiscent of my college speech class where I argued that abortion was morally wrong. The attacks on me were expected, and ad hominem. My favorite was a young man who argued that I should have no say about the issue of abortion because I'm a man. Of course, there are millions of women across this country that agree with me, but this was supposedly a topic on which men are not allowed to have an opinion.

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this. https://twitter.com/ryandbusse/status/1450623648067248128

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book. http://www.ryanbusseauthor.com
