PHOTOS: Activist Randall Terry Brings Health Care Protest to Louisville

by scrosby on August 24, 2009

terry5Political activist Randall Terry says Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky hasn’t shown enough leadership in opposing the president’s proposed health care overhaul. Terry was in Louisville this morning, acting out skits and protesting the proposed changes.

He’s the founder of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. He contends that under some legislation, taxpayer money would be used to fund abortions.

“There are people that are saying ‘oh, the health care bill doesn’t have abortion in it’ – nonsense! Why are there so many democrats that are fighting it that are pro-lifers?” says Terry. “Why when Orrin Hatch said to Feinstein, ‘just explicitly say, no money in this bill will be designated for abortion’, she wouldn’t do it! So, they’re lying to us.”

terry4Terry chose Louisville as a stop on his 10-city tour not to protest outside the office of Congressman John Yarmuth, who is in favor of a so-called public option, but in front of Senator McConnell’s office, because Terry says the Republican leader is not fighting hard enough against it.

“He, if he exercised good leadership, could single-handedly destroy this bill. But so far he has not displayed the backbone,” says Terry, “and we’re looking for true, courageous leadership. This is a hill to die on! This is not something to tinker with around the edges. Fight, Senator, fight!”

Congressman John Yarmuth will be talking about health care overhaul on tomorrow’s State of Affairs on WFPL.

Randall Terry speaks the truth. Call your Congressman and Senators and tell them you do not want your tax dollars spent to pay for abortion or euthanasia.

Notable quotes from Randall Terry:

“Let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good…. Our goal is a Christian Nation… we have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country. We don’t want equal time. We don’t want Pluralism. We want theocracy. Theocracy means God rules. I’ve got a hot flash. God rules.”

Upon the assassination of Dr. George Tiller, “Good riddance.”

“When I, or people like me, are running the country, you’d better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we’ll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.”

Sorry, Mr. Terry. We want no part of it.

Randall Terry is a terrorist. If he had dark skin & a funny name he’d be warming the corner of a concrete cell in Gitmo.

Poor Randall Terry — he has to keep getting crazier and crazier just to stay one step ahead of (or behind) the other right-wing nutjobs.
