How many innocent people — including children — does a Muslim terrorist have to murder before it becomes the lead story on TV news?
Apparently more than 22, judging from what happened in the aftermath of the latest savagery in Manchester, England, Monday night.
So here was MSNBC, with Comrade Chris Matthews speaking over a live video feed from the blood-spattered Ariana Grande concert, the live screams of the terrified young girls in the background, as he says with disinterest:
“We’ll get the latest on that in a minute” — more screams — “but first, the shocking news in Washington tonight, the Washington Post reports that — ”
More fake news! But they can’t help themselves, the alt-left media have to stick to the script, Donald Trump did … something. He must have, right? Because we’ve been yelling about it for months now.
Click to CNN. Some expert with an English accent is analyzing what he desperately wants to have occurred.
“It must also be noted in the recent months in Europe there have been a number of false flag plots where, uh, right-wing extremists have tried to frame Islamists for terrorism … .”
Really? Where did that happen, in Nice, or Paris, or Istanbul, or London or Berlin, or for that matter, Boston, San Bernardino, NYC, Orlando or Chattanooga? Deflect, deflect, deflect. This is how Islamic hate crimes are always downplayed by fake news. Yesterday morning it was more of the same on ABC “News” with Clinton hack George Stephanopoulos wringing his hands about that thing uppermost in everyone’s mind — everyone with armed security, I suppose.
Stephanopoulos: “This is also likely to inflame anti-Islamic sentiment across Britain, across Europe.”
Martha Raddatz, whose wedding Barack Obama attended, agreed: “It will likely create backlash.”
A backlash? What about the little girls whose lives were so horribly snuffed out, and their survivors? What about their feelings? Much of the media obfuscated for as long as they could. Maybe, they claimed, it was all a big mistake, the carnage caused by “balloons exploding?”
As the hours went by and no names were released, it became more and more certain what had happened, just like when an arrested politician isn’t ID’d by his party affiliation in the first two paragraphs, you can 100 percent take it to the bank that he’s a Democrat.
Same thing in terrorism: When the killer is named, say, Dylann Roof, the public will be informed instantly. When the much more likely scenario unfolds, and the killer is one Salman Abedi, well, his next of kin must be notified … in Libya.
But he’s “homegrown,” and don’t you forget it. An accomplice may have been arrested, but he was a “lone wolf.” ISIS took responsibility, but don’t sweat it. As Obama told us, ISIS is “the j.v.”
Now, back to the shocking, stunning news about the Russian collusion that wasn’t …
