Kinzingers latest TV appearance sets off internet outrage

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2015

The latest internet outrage is swirling around a congressman representing the Illinois Valley.

Republican Adam Kinzinger who has publicly come out against abortion was on CNN Friday as news was unfolding about a gunman at a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Colorado. A Planned Parenthood representative put out a statement as the shootings began saying “we don’t know yet if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack”. She went on to say “we share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism”.

Many took to the congressman’s Facebook page and blasted him for demanding an apology even though the Planned Parenthood statement never directly said the shooter was targeting Planned Parenthood. A Facebook post by Kinzinger that was originally about giving thanks during the holiday grew into nearly 400 comments of statements like “shame on you”, “ignorant” and “disgusting”.

The congressman hasn’t put out a public statement since Friday’s CNN appearance.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
