"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."

This Speaks For Itself: Someone Sent Me This I Repost It
Details remain thin on the ground, but the head of Paris police confirmed that they "are dealing with an attack from an individual who was clearly aggressive and represented a direct threat, and whose comments lead us to believe that he wished to carry out a terrorist incident.”
The attacker was shot five times and was shouting “Allahu akbar,” Mr Cadot added.
Responding to news of the incident, Donald Trump tweeted:
A new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART U.S.
Mr Trump's speed at condemning the attack comes at no surprise of course. He is famed for his reactionary tweeting style.
However, what is interesting is his selectiveness of which incidents he reacts to in a public forum.
