Instead of mourning the deaths of the thirteen innocent people killed at Fort Hood, the left-wing media is lamenting the fact that the gunman is a Muslim (a slight change from ignoring the fact which they did at first).
NPR's Nina Totenberg said, "It really is tragic that he was a Muslim."
Newsweek's Evan Thomas said, "I cringe that he's a Muslim. I mean, because it inflames all the fears. I think he's probably just a nut case. But with that label attached to him, it will get the right wing going and it just -- I mean these things are tragic, but that makes it much worse."
So basically what they're telling us is that we can't let one bad apple influence the way we view all members of a culture; but only so long as that culture isn't affiliated with conservatism or the right-wing.
Now, we all remember when Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed by an extremist "pro-life" activist (pro-life is in quotes because obviously someone who goes around shooting people isn't exactly pro-life). The left-wing media constantly affiliated the shooter to the rest of the pro-lifers, assuming that we're all crazy and need to be watched out for.
"Jill Filipovic, of the 'Guardian.co.Uk.' also tried to link Dr. Tiller's death to terrorism. 'Not surprisingly, his killer is strongly suspected to be affiliated with the 'pro-life' movement. If that's the case, it makes Tiller the 10th person in the United States to be murdered by anti-choice terrorists.'" (NewsBusters)
How about this, Jill: Not surprisingly, Major Hasan is affiliated with the Muslim faith. Since that's the case, it makes him the 2oth person in the United States to murder Americans (and 20 is just including the 9-11 hijackers...not to mention the 1993 bombing and every other instance where it was Muslims killing "infidels" for the sake of Allah).
Now I'm not saying that Hasan's reasons for going on a killing spree were the same as the 9-11 hijackers'. But if the media can relate all pro-lifers to the crazy ones, then I can relate all Muslims to the crazy ones.
