Notorious Anti-Choicer Will Run Against Obama Just for Graphic Superbowl Ads

Randall Terry, the terrorism-friendly anti-choice extremist, has announced that he will run against Obama in 2012 purely so he can run graphic, disturbing anti-abortion ads during the 2012 Superbowl. Perhaps most bizarrely, he says he's going to run as a Democrat.

To add insult to injury, Terry will make his official announcement tomorrow in front of Washington, D.C's Holocaust museum to make his immoral abortion-Holocaust metaphor--a metaphor that has been denounced by Jewish groups--that much clearer. This is especially offensive since the museum is the site of a grizzly act of right-wing terrorism.

Some of Randall Terry's greatest hits include:

  • Passing out a plastic fetus doll in a Capitol Hill meeting with John Boehner.
  • Running the failed DC Mayoral campaign of Missy Smith, again, just so he could run graphic dismembered-fetus ads (many of which are doctored or miscontextualized) on local TV. Sound familiar?
  • Saying "there is swing, there is reaping" regarding the murder of Dr. George Tiller.
  • Terry may also be remembered as the man who inserted himself into the Terri Schiavo case, as the spokesman for the parents of Schiavo, insisting the government intervene in the end-of-life decision which was legally Schiavo's husband's.

As Amanda Marcotte recently wrote:

Randall Terry isn’t just your everyday anti-choice nut.  It takes someone with a special level of nuttiness to get shunned by most of the anti-choice community, a community generally known for having a high tolerance for hysterics, attention-seeking, blatant lying, and quiet encouragement of violence against abortion providers.  If you’re such a nasty piece of work that even Jill Stanek and Troy Newman can’t stand you, you must be something else.

 We can look forward to more of this if Terry follows through on his promise. Read more at Raw Story.
