If you have to lie, you are likely in the wrong

Some commodities sell themselves and one such commodity is truth. Those who seek to convince that their cause is right and just need only to adorn their arguments with truth. We might expect shady and extreme groups like NARAL to use falsehood as its weapon of choice, so we are not surprised to see that they are completely misrepresenting John Roberts in an ad that depicts Roberts siding with abortion clinic bombers. Even Factcheck.org which I tend to see as left leaning readily points out that NARAL is out and out lying.

By showing an abortion bombing victim from 1998 and claiming that a ruling Roberts made in 1991 concerning blocking abortion clinics (not bombing them) is an outrageous distortion of the truth. The blockade issue wanted to use the Klu Klux Klan Act of 1871 to keep pro-life demonstrators from even demonstrating on clinic property.

Liberal groups have had no problem with extreme left groups blocking access to nuclear sites, lying on train tracks to prevent moving nuclear material, lying in the street and preventing economic commerce and free movement, and throwing paint on fur coats, etc. Yet they always seek to block the freedom of conservatives to speak and demonstrate. When Roberts rules in a fashion that any fair and level-headed judge would do, they try to align him with murderers.

No self respecting media source would give them a forum or give them a microphone to spread continued lies. We'll see which ones do.
