The guy who wanted to blow up the pentagon, who is a muslim, is being shielded by the MSM..
No, they ARE reporting that he wanted to blow up the pentagon. But they are downplaying the fact that his motivation was the cause of Jihad. Downplaying the fact that he was a muslim.
Look, I really don’t care what your motivation for death, dismemberment, etc. is. If you want to use terror tactics to disrupt peoples lives, then you and I have a problem. You automatically become my enemy. If you wish to harm my fellow citizens, then I am your enemy….
But really, why downplay his motivation…Why downplay his religion? (and by the same token, they shouldn’t make a big deal about it either) But the MSM and the liberals (but I repeat myself) do their best to make a big deal when a person who may be choosing violence as his means of protest against our government is associated with a right leaning organization..say a Militia or the NRA or something like that. They did their best to portray Jared Laughner as a right wing gun nut when he shot Gabby Giffords and others a few months ago. They play up any right wing association they can (or if they are, god forbid, a christian or a conservative) but they downplay an attachment to a third century religion….almost as if they wish to hide the fact.
I hate double standards. Perhaps the guy was just a nutball. Perhaps he was embarking on his Jihad. Perhaps he represents all Muslims. I really don’t know. But I do know that there is a double standard in the MSM….
