Sorry, But It’s Islam’s Fault If People Are Islamophobic

Rage guys throw a tantrum over Charlie Hebdo in Pakistan

Is it too late to have an opinion about the terrorist attack in Texas?

I know it’s been, like, three whole days. No story can stay “relevant” for three days, unless it’s something of historic importance like a royal baby or a transgendered reality TV personality. But Garland? Well, that was just two Muslim militants in the U.S. recruited by Islamic State to slaughter a group of American citizens for the crime of exercising their free speech…

…The dead bodies stacked up from this incident were just the terrorists themselves. A fortunate detail, but it didn’t help the story’s staying power. Frankly, that isn’t the body count the media prefers, nor is it the type of dead body they’re after. These were radicalized Islamists trying to kill right-wing free-speech advocates only to be taken out by an armed off-duty cop. Every single part of that last sentence flies directly in the face of at least a half dozen progressive narratives…

…I’ve heard it said that the organizers of this event were intentionally trying to provoke a violent response from Muslims. Maybe they were. I don’t know. I can’t see inside their hearts to know their intentions. Whether they were trying to provoke or not, doesn’t it say something profoundly troubling about Islam that it can be so easily provoked in the first place?…

    Still think the best analogy on this attack (I think it was Steyn) was imagine if this were a couple lunatic NRA members attacking an anti-gun rally.

      A very apt analogy on Steyn’s part.

    islams followers are the ones that are Humanophobic to hate those higher up the ladder in evolution that don’t resort to violence to solve issues and are vreative and productive.
    It’s not our fault that islam hasn’t invented anything in about 500 years , if islam didn’t have a death penalty for apostates the population would be under 300,000,000 and dies off as nobody converts by this perceive death-cult with a founder that had sex with a 9 year old girl when he was 54.

    It’s like blaming America if the 9/11 hijackers had been taken out – they were whining about americans not knowing their place either iirc

    ah, we all know this is another example of white cops killing black men, come on obama or/and holder tell us it’s all about racist cops, you can do it
