• Dem Senator Chris Murphy: Hey, Let’s Blame Bush for Radicalizing the Paris Terrorists

    When all else fails for Democrats, there’s always George W. Bush to blame. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) followed that logical model to a tee on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.

    While discussing the gruesome murder of Charlie Hebdo cartoonists in Paris, Murphy blamed the radicalization of the terrorists who killed them…on the most recent Republican president, of course.

    It is important just to recognize that the individuals who carried out these attacks in Paris were originally radicalized not by ISIS, but in coordination against the United States’ invasion and occupation of Iraq,” Murphy insisted. “That’s what initially brought them into this fight, and it’s worth repeating that those who would call for another insertion of U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS would be essentially repeating the very mistake that radicalized thousands of Muslims all across country during our ten-year occupation of that country.”

    Take a look at the senator’s remarks in the clip above. Rachel Maddow surely went to sleep a pleased woman last night, content with the knowledge that this can all be traced back to W.
