The critical thing about confronting evil is to call it by its rightful name. But New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo decided to call alleged truck terrorist Sayfullo Saipov a “lone wolf.”
“All the evidence we have suggests that he was acting alone,” said Cuomo. “The so-called ‘Lone Wolf syndrome.'”
Lone wolf? That’s a dangerous rhetorical mistake, made by a worried politician trying to avoid reality.
