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.
Earlier this week, the residents of Quebec were left in mourning after a shooting at a city mosque left six dead
The man charged in connection with the terrorist attack is French Canadian student Alexandre Bissonnette , who was a fan for Donald Trump and far-right nationalist politician Marine Le Pen.
Along with the six people killed, five were left in a critical condition and 12 others suffered minor injuries.


  1. Any wonder why this administration has shifted attention from right wing domestic terror groups to exclusively "Islamic" terrorists?

  2. I should have added: the people killed and injured in Quebec were in a mosque. The attacker in Paris assaulted a military soldier, who was injured but not, fortunately, seriously.

    But this isn't a "war on Islam," right?

  3. America is going to pay an even bigger cost for the racism of its leaders this time. I honestly think the disaster of Iraq was, in large part, based in an assumption by Cheney and the other neo-cons that they were going to be able to easily pacify the dark skinned guys they were invading. I think they really believed a lot of that crap about being welcomed with rosewater and stuff. Trump is even more ignorant and more racist and his pirate ship of a regime is full of even worse racists and idiots and psychotics than he is.

    Yet our Constitutional system has no way to fix it that is going to be taken. The Congress is as full of them as his regime is.
