Two soldiers murdered by Muslim 'peace activist' (Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Lets see here, help me out. I'm having a little trouble getting the drift of what's going on with the Obama administration, the media, and the Left-wing blogs. Maniac pro-life, "right-wing extremist" inexcusably murders an abortion doctor and the entire pro-life movement is immediately attacked by the president, the media, and the Left, 24/7. Then 24 year-old Carlos Leon Bledsoe, a prison convert to Islam who changed his name to Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, (go figure!) "with political and religious motives" inexcusably murders two American soldiers standing in front of a U.S. Army recruiting station and you can here a pin drop. Like Erick Erickson notes at Redstate, they'd much rather focus on the nut who killed George Tiller than the nut who killed two soldiers. One need only to look at the front page of Google News and there are multiple stories on the former and very little coverage on the latter. So just why is this the case?
Gee, couldn't be that there's an agenda in the works, could it?
The media and the Left would rather not talk about this:
A Muslim convert "with political and religious motives" shot two uniformed soldiers outside an Arkansas military recruiting center Monday, killing one and wounding the other, authorities said.As Erickson goes on to note in his piece, one of the killers is allegedly a pro-life militant and the other is a Muslim peace activist. Only one fits the media's and the Left's narrative (read as agenda). Indeed, President Obama rushed out rather quickly after the death of Dr. Tiller "to tell the pro-life community that violence is not the answer." I won't be holding my breath waiting for him to do the same to the peace movement and Muslim extremists..
Police arrested Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, 23, on a nearby interstate shortly after the bloodshed at the Army-Navy Career Center in a shopping center in west Little Rock. Three guns were found in his SUV, they said.
And as Matthew Vadum points out at The American Spectator, just as we anticipated, Leftists are using Tiller's murder to advance their agenda:
Leftists are using the murder of abortionist Dr. George Tiller to urge Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to reconsider the now-withdrawn politically motivated DHS report that labeled all conservatives, libertarians, and returning veterans as potential right-wing terrorists.Yet not a word is muttered from the Left about Muslim extremists in the United States and we know that Napolitano won't be using the words "Muslim" or "Islamic" and the word "terrorism" in the same breath, given the Obama administration's affection for the Muslim community.
