Just because every time Randall Terry steps in front of the camera and opens his mouth he manages to embarrass himself and undermine the very movement he claims to represent doesn’t mean that he’s not going to continue to do everything he can to try and capitalize on the murder of George Tiller:
Press conference 1 PM, Thursday, to announce details how Pro-life groups can derail Sotomayor, and root out hypocrisy in pro-life ranks.
Also: Emergency Pro-life leadership training to be held in DC, June 12-14, with Randall Terry, Dr. Alan Keyes, Norma McCorvey, and Fr. Norman Weslin. Pro-abortion activists threaten to disrupt meeting.
Press conference will cover:
1) How Mr. Tiller’s death can propel the pro-life movement forward based upon lessons from Nat Turner’s slave rebellion, and how abolitionists responded;
2) Plans of pro-life groups to seize moment to defeat Sotomayor, and expose hypocrisy within the GOP; names of 4 key Senate Targets to be released.
3) The role certain Catholic Bishops must play to insure Sotomayor’s defeat;
4) Upcoming pro-life training: Pro-abortion activists threaten to disrupt.
Location: National Press Club, 14th and F Street, Washington DC
Time: 12:30 to 1:00 P.M., Chicken Wings and Guinness will be served (for members of the press only). (Please RSVP at 904-687-9804 by Wednesday morning.)
Press conference to begin at 1:00 P.M.
Members of press will be provided concise yet comprehensive research on the above topics. Upcoming plans and details of June 12-14 seminar will be laid out.
Randall Terry States:
“Tiller’s death will either set the pro-life movement back twenty years, or propel us to victory more speedily. The outcome depends on our courage over the next 3-6 months.
“If we follow the example of the abolitionists, we will prevail; if we run like French Soldiers, we will be imprisoned in irrelevance.
“Our upcoming seminar is designed to raise up stout hearted, peaceful pro-life warriors, who do not fear, but follow this maxim: “…urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present. I am in earnest — I will not equivocate — I will not excuse — I will not retreat a single inch — AND I WILL BE HEARD.”
At least Terry has a sense of humor about himself in offering to provide the Guinness and wings … but that’s about all he has left, because his credibility as an anti-choice leader at this point is utterly nonexistent. Which is why I am actually a little surprised that Keyes and McCorvey are so willing to toss away what little remains of their credibility by agreeing to participate in this training seminar with him.
