Transcript for Colorado Planned Parenthood Shooting Discussed on 'The View'
There's still no official word. On what led to the shooting outside the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic. Left three people dead but the president of the rocky mountain chapter a Planned Parenthood says the campaign rhetoric could've played a part take a lot it's. Reading experience sound ninths. Hate hateful language hateful speech. It as such a negative environment has been created around. The work that Planned Parenthood does around the idea of safe and legal abortion and we've seen and a cost that country. From all sorts of speakers in the last few months I cans. Believe that this isn't contributing to some folks. Mentally unwell or not I'm thinking that it's okay to. To target Planned Parenthood are to target abortion providers. Let's. Keep this guy was an extremist Shia and I don't think any of the candidates especially on one particular side of the hour are condone mean or encouraging violence this guy doesn't speak for the majority of pro lifers just like. Ice assistant state for the majority of people that believe in his long. Just like NRA doesn't represent the majority of gun owners in this country and Tammy Fay isn't speak for Christians this guy was. And extremist. And violence never be gets violent I had an issue it was the fact that the Republican candidates took so long to tweet any parent not an hour's yet that's a very long time because you show me for people running for president for all the democratic candidates include including Martin O'Malley did. You know sentence we doubt about it. But you show me it. Another shooting anywhere where they would have taken 36 hours to comment just saying her thoughts are with the families or anything that's silence killed me and I think it's I think that's a fair point and I mean for you. You know I'm pro life and M for some people that's a dirty work but but that's my belief. But I don't think Paula we can ignore the rhetoric that has been out there from the Republican Party from the right and the bottom line there is. Yes that is sort of tossing fuel on to something that's already very very flammable and I think it's irresponsible. Not to step out in front of it if you're a candidate that has. You know talked about these videos that have now been soundly debunked and and not walk it back in a time like this you have to lead from the front. And I was very surprise that they took. 36 hours to talk about this if you are a leader. Then you hit you meet it head on and I don't think it's fair to just sort of say. Well I'm pro life but you know this guy is just sort of on the French bottom line is there was a lot of rhetoric out there. And people need to you know be more accountable for what comes out of there but today and Paterson is illegal in this country so we should also keep that in mind that you know. I think it was unfortunate that they didn't respond quickly but I have also. I find that I get frustrated with Twitter and their reaction that everyone has that we need to post immediately. And I'm talking in general not just in this specific circumstance but I don't think that we can judge someone's heart based on a 140 characters or so but it's not an Arnold come forward if you are going to be the leader of the free world if that's the job that you want in you need to be how much front and come not. Immediate I don't disagree with you I think it it's good to get information and more information and then. Posts on a mailing from. Issue do you need when you hear that in some people were murdered your running for residents it's chat it's horrible that I had to eat it and that's harmful I don't know I don't think there's an excuse for it and I I know what you're saying that likely counting on social media but when you're running for president there'd be kids are getting off it's like a pretty much it.
