The Democrats' inane response to a terror attack
Political Distractions Abound in the Wake of Orlando ShootingIt is enough to make you think that Democrats are not intelligent people when it comes the warfare and the acts of the enemy. They are so anti war, they do not want to fight back against the attacker and would rather fight to disarm the innocent.
But let's discuss this "political distraction" business. Before the blood had been mopped up in Orlando, the president and the woman seeking to replace him immediately tried to make the second-worst Islamic terror attack on American soil into anything other than Islamic terrorism.
"While the precise motivation for the rampage remains unclear," the New York Times editorialized, "it is evident that Mr. Mateen was driven by hatred toward gays and lesbians."
"Hate crimes don't happen in a vacuum," added the Gray Lady (I'm referring to the Times, not Clinton). "They occur where bigotry is allowed to fester, where minorities are vilified and where people are scapegoated for political gain. Tragically, this is the state of American politics, driven too often by Republican politicians who see prejudice as something to exploit, not extinguish."
The killer was a registered Democrat. The source of his hatred was not the Christian Coalition, but radical Islamism. He stated this motivation clearly during the shooting and for months prior. He reportedly also considered attacking that notorious gay hangout Disney World. Would we be hearing about the pernicious, right-wing, anti-cartoon-character climate if he'd opted for that target?
