• MSNBC is Totally Bummed That the Ottawa Shooting is Being Called a Terrorist Attack

    Only on MSNBC would you find so-called news anchors who are disappointed that the gruesome terrorist attack up in Ottawa, Ontario this week would actually be characterized as…a terrorist attack. They’d rather call it something else.

    In perhaps the most blatant display of political correctness and head-in-the-sand-itis, Alex Wagner proclaimed, “There are a few folks who in the aftermath of this have said, well, wait a second, there is a difference between someone who is a terrorist and someone who is a deranged, unhappy person with a gun. And yet, it has been surprising, I think, to see even Josh Earnest at the White House say, ‘Consider it a terrorist act,’ and I guess from sort of a constitutional, civil liberties/rights perspective, how distressing is that?

    The answer, Alex, is that it’s not “distressing” at all…unless you’re a far-left “progressive” like yourself. Only Wagner would fret that the Obama administration is taking too conservative a position on the disgusting display we saw up in Canada. To the rest of the country, Josh Earnest’s response has been as tame as a newborn puppy. Besides, if Alex has problems with the way the Obama administration is responding in their public remarks, why doesn’t she just complain to her new husband, Sam Kass? He is, after all, Obama’s “Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy,” which means he probably has the president’s ear more than anyone else.

    Wagner’s fears are just another example of a liberal media gone haywire, intent to do or say anything to deny that Islamic terrorism exists. She even brought on a CAIR representative to bolster her position, as well as a guy who is famous for defending Gitmo terrorists. Typical MSNBC group-think, of course. One of them even chimed in with the following brilliance: “This seems much more like ordinary crime.”

    It would behoove Alex to speak with The Daily Beast’s Christopher Dickey, who, as we explained yesterday, really has this one nailed. Dickey’s main point is that “lone wolf” or not, terror is terror.

    Meanwhile, fellow MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell has similar concerns:

    Do you fear, do you worry that there is going to be this reaction as, frankly, we had after 9/11?” Mitchell worried. “We had to really have bipartisan efforts by the President, George W. Bush at the time and others, to bring together the community and stop anger and discrimination against some in our society.”

    It’s infuriating to have to listen to all of these lightweights complain about discrimination against brutal killers. If we’re not going to blame the people who actually commit these heinous acts, who are we supposed to blame? I don’t see 67-year old female MSNBC news anchors cutting heads off people or shooting up public places, do you? This whole harkening back to 9/11 thing doesn’t help Mitchell’s theory either, since pretty much all of the terrorist acts that we’ve seen in the 13 years since then have been perpetrated by Muslim fanatics.

    I imagine Andrea and Alex each had a good crying session once they realized the terrorist up in Ottawa didn’t work for the Canadian Parliament. You know they were both itching to characterize this one as “workplace violence.” Bummer for them.
