Just a few weeks back, the attempted arson of a Planned Parenthood center was cited by Democrats and their media allies as evidence that a so-called “campaign of hate” was leading to violence.

Turns out it was just a dumb domestic dispute.

Little did this petty criminal know that his stupidity would provide handy misdirection to the abortionists. Instead of people focusing on images of fetal organs being harvested for money, they heard about hate speech and violence by apparent foes of abortion.

Authorities have arrested a man who they say set fire to a Southern California Planned Parenthood center.

But they say the motive was a domestic feud, not politics.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office says 24-year-old Alvaro Perez of Oxnard was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of arson and remains jailed.

Investigators say he threw a flammable liquid through the window of a Planned Parenthood office in Thousand Oaks on Sept. 30. The office sustained little fire damage but its sprinkler system caused water damage.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Dean Worthy says Perez had an ongoing feud with his ex-girlfriend who worked at the office. No one was in the building at the time of the fire.

Perez already was jailed for a series of other criminal accusations, including domestic spousal battery.
