Of course, we all know that “Islamic terrorism” is a term that triggers the left to no end. Muzzies slaughtering a few unbelievers in broad daylight has nothing to do with Islam, we are told. Muzzie mayor Sadiq Khan of London even claims that Islamic terrorism is “part and parcel” of living in a big city.
Yet, despite Islamic terrorism being so incredibly commonplace that you are almost tempted to shrug your shoulders when you read of yet another terrorist attack, I was a little bit taken aback when I received a Facebook notification about the latest Muslim vehicular outreach event, which happened in New York City and led to a death toll of 8. Hey, it’s all non-believers, so what’s the big deal? The perpetrator made it to the US on a diversity green card. Yup, diversity is our strength!
So, what did Facebook do? Instead of calling a spade a spade, they downplayed the Muslim truck of tolerance ram attack to such a degree that it is downright revolting. They call it “The Violent Incident”:
It’s a violent incident when someone punches Richard Spencer. Heck, to the left it’s a violent incident if a low-income black person does not get a no-money-down mortgage for a big house (that was a prime catalyst of the Great Financial Crisis, by the way). They call it structural violence. On the other hand, referring to the cold-blooded murder of eight people as a “violent incident” is downright insulting and disrespectful to the highest degree to the friends and families of the victims.
I am disgusted.
