Anybody know what’s going on near the Planned Parenthood on McDowell st? Firetrucks and police blocking the road.

Anti abortion protestors left drums full of questionable substances in the parking lot. Police and fire brought in the bomb squad. This is preventing people from getting medical care and they're still out here yelling at the medical workers. They could use some solidarity and people presence if you can spare it.

Jesus; please protect me from your followers. AMEN 🙏🏽


GloomyCaver

The only reason I wear an inverted cross necklace is to keep Jesus's fan club away from me. I actually like Jesus, just hate his fan club.

The dumbest people

Man fuck those protesters. They talk about children but then are out there every weekend with giant signs showing piles of aborted tissue and gore. My young daughter has seen it multiple times as we drive by and is upset by it. Now they’re trespassing, leaving shit in the parking lot. and harassing workers. Arrest them all, fucking terrorists.

Lmao I’m indifferent about this but it’s hilarious anytime anyone does something the other side doesnt like they are a terrorist. It was probably some tubs of spermicide they were just paying the abortion forward


altrepublic

You clearly don’t understand what a terroristic threat is. Is a bomb squad response typical for spermicide?

Yeah here’s a pic of the barrels. https://imgur.com/gallery/n6BUCtP It’s a bit hard to see from my pic but the red sticker is a biohazard sign.

Good I hope your daughter sees how disgusting it is and never gets one and gets married and has kids and stays happy


altrepublic

I hope my daughter grows up to do what she pleases and what makes her happy. Then I hope she runs for office and wins and passes legislation that removes the chickenshit religious facade that nut job terrorists like you hide behind in the name of “freedom”.


Seantroversy

Yessss


Ansonicus

I would hope they are not Burning, Looting, and Murdering.


altrepublic

Nope just terroristic threats, harassment, intimidation, and trespassing


beaverlakenc

leaving bomb like shit at abortion clinic in a city where Eric Robert Rudolph already bombed in portion clinic is completely fucking stupid end right wing terrorism


Seantroversy

Right wing terrorism will continue as long as the right wing party is openly pro-terrorism


FakeNewsOftheGalaxy

Hold up….he never bombed an abortion clinic in Asheville. He did shit in Atlanta and Birmingham So get your shitty facts straight


effortfulcrumload

u/FakeNewaOftheGalaxy is correct. http://www.cnn.com/US/9903/13/clinic.blast.03/index.html Also, in his own words "Rudolph said he planned another bomb, this one at a women's clinic in Asheville, N.C., that provided abortions. This time, he said he had no second thoughts, but a crummy vehicle prevented him from carrying out his murderous design."The initial plan was to steal a truck ... and attack an abortion mill before the presidential election. The plan fell through when the truck used was not capable of driving 2 miles, let alone 200," he wrote.


beaverlakenc

I guess ur sort of right, still bombed http://www.cnn.com/US/9903/13/clinic.blast.03/index.html

a democratic state representative was shot at in Alabama at their home let's keep calling it what it is right-wing Christian Evangelical terrorism


Ansonicus

Who shot who?


BMWAircooled

When every one of those protestors start adopting kids or becoming foster families... shut the hell up and get out of the way. Idiots.


Seantroversy

What a bunch of bullshit. These people have no shame man


dfaz173

Man that’s fucked up


nah-meh-stay

Well, they could use castle doctrine and stand your ground to make sure the protesters don't return.


Gr8BollsoFire

Hmm since the barrels were left overnight, this was definitely not an organized vigil like 40 days for Life (peaceful). Guessing someone was trying to make a point of how fetal remains are treated, post-abortion. They're discarded as biological waste.


altrepublic

Maybe because it is biological waste?


plantsallthewaydown

How did you know they were left overnight?


Gr8BollsoFire

News article.

altrepublic

I read this 4 times and don’t see anything that says the barrels were left overnight.


Gr8BollsoFire

Maybe you're not good at reading? [EDIT: I just want to publicly apologize for misinterpreting the tone of the comment that I was replying to. They didn't deserve me being snarky to them. Hope everyone has a great day.] " 'HAZMAT' labels that were discovered outside Saturday morning. Molly Rivera, a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood South Atlantic, tells News 13 as soon as the barrels were spotted in the morning, authorities were called." I mean, I'm assuming they would have called authorities yesterday if the barrels were outside at that point. It seems pretty clear this was done at some point last night.


altrepublic

What time does morning start for you? I live around the corner from this and it wasn’t there at 1:00am when I picked up my son. So that means someone left that shit early morning.


Gr8BollsoFire

Cool. I mean I would still consider that overnight. It was between the time that the business closed and the time that it reopened. Why are you so concerned about the exact semantics that I used?


altrepublic

Because I fucking live near here and Christian terrorists aren’t exactly a great thing to have near your home. I want to know actual facts about this so I can be more aware and keep my family safe from nut jobs.


plantsallthewaydown

The person you're arguing with posts on pro life subs, so don't expect a good faith argument from a nut job.


Van-Iblis

I bet you don't use the term Islamic terrorists though, huh?


Gr8BollsoFire

Okay. I'm sorry that we have a differing understanding of what the term overnight means. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I shared the information that I was able to find from google. I hope you can get enough information to where you feel safe. And I certainly hope this was not an act of terrorism.


DisturbedAlchemyArt

I lost one of the best drs I ever had because she was basically forced out of town for providing abortions. I thankfully was never in that position, but if I were I couldn't think a better person to help me through it.

There is peaceful protests and then there are those who use violent speech screaming at healthcare workers and potential patients.


bunnygrace

Also, I totally believe in the right to protest and freedom of speech, but that’s a major violation in privacy. Like obgyn stuff is really uncomfortable, I don’t even like being around other patients in the office. To have some strangers knowing where I go, non the less judging me for it, is super messed up. Also, right to privacy is an amendment too, so loitering outside a doctors office to see who goes inside is kind of going against that, right? On another note, I’m about to move to Asheville, and my grandparents said it’s getting really dangerous. This kind of looks true. Am I making a mistake?


timshel42

hope you've already found a well paying job and a place to live or you may be regretting your decision


CerebralAperture

Run AWAY from Asheville. I tell anyone who asks, DO NOT LIVE HERE.


bunnygrace

Why?


CerebralAperture

In short, we are a 90K+ city but we don't have the infrastructure to support it. Right now the few functioning systems we have are collapsing and the cost of living makes it near impossible to sustain anything here. If your idea of living in a city has anything to do with stability, then Asheville is not your place.


bunnygrace

Well I’m already stuck now. Thanks for the info though.

shadrach103

It's no more dangerous than any other city in the US right now. At the moment odds are higher that a black bear will walk into your house than any of this other stuff that is going around.


bunnygrace

Haha thank you! As much as I love bears, I’m hoping that doesn’t happen either.


redditor712

Unfortunately, no it doesn't go against because you are in public inorder to get there. There's generally no expectation of privacy "legally" when in public. I mean, I'm sure there's an expectation to be left alone (Lord knows I want to be), but that's about it.


[deleted]

We have an extremely dangerous police force and, as someone mentioned, a strained infrastructure because of the volume of people moving here. A lot of residents suffering because of the wealth gap/housing crisis, so you’re going to see everything that comes along with that. Homelessness and substance abuse are all around, and emotionally difficult to witness, but definitely not as gross as irresponsible tourist behavior and our city council’s elitist indifference. I’d be moving if I didn’t love my job so much.


GeometryOwl

I am guessing white religious extremists did some y’all qaeda bullshit. You know domestic terror. But they are white so…misdemeanors and plea deals all around!


altrepublic

I’ll be surprised if anyone even gets charged. Most likely we’ll just see the usual bootlickers find a way to use this as another talking point for their understaffed police bullshit.


Hooligan4545

With the exception of Catholics, Christians weren't really that against abortion until somewhat recently... Good read about it: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2014/05/religious-right-real-origins-107133


GloomyCaver

Catholics are against abortions because that would reduce their priest's dating pool.


Rydroid11

Hicks (hillbillies) like to to stand and be a nuisance as often as they can. They’re the kinda people to say they want to be able to do whatever they want but then to wish you were dead or call you a bad person for doing anything they disagree with


Van-Iblis

Something tells me you're a transplant. Hicks=anyone you don't like or agree with.


Rydroid11

I’m guessing you’re a hick?


Van-Iblis

HAHA. I knew you were a damn transplant. They're the only ones who say shit like that.


Rydroid11

HAHA. I knew you were a hick, the only ones who say shit like that


Rydroid11

HAHA. I knew you were a hick, the only ones who say shit like that


Van-Iblis

Your reply is the equivalent of "No, you." Are you that touchy about your transplant status?
