What’s left to be said about political discourse in this country?
And he is a terrorist, no? I mean, he wasn’t out to kill an individual because of some personal grudge or for the sake of making off with some tech and petty cash. He wanted to murder strangers so as to terrorize, and therefore silence, a group of people for political purposes. He is the Left’s Anders Breivik, the right-wing terrorist who also sought to silence (if not obliterate) a group whose politics he did not like, and in defense of his “people,” who he felt were under threat.
Only the American (whose name I won’t even reproduce) tried to push past someone–security guard Leo Johnson–who was in a position to mount a defense, and so the terrorist could shed only so much blood. But I’m sure it was not from any lack of commitment. (What if instead of hitting Johnson in the arm, he had taken him out entirely, and made his way further into the building?)
I’m sure the MSM will draw this analogy immediately.
That was the only joke in this post.
*The original headline had “Leftist,” but that’s sort of old hat. I think “progressive” is now the preferred term.
