I cannot help be struck dumb by the complete media blackout on the ISMAIL AX development in the Virginia Tech mass murder. They are on a 27/7 news loop talking about every anal detail but not one mention of the 800 lb gorilla in the room.
This is shocking and disturbing and ought to give the American people great pause. At what cost political correctness? Cassandra weighs in here. The media are removing this vital clue to the story. Who can believe anything they report when they abdicate their role as public servant.
UPDATE: Somebody gets it. Jerry Bowyer over at TCS Daily here
Ismail Ax: The Shooter Was Another 'Son of Sacrifice' hat tip Diana W
First it was Johnny Muhammad, now it was Cho Sueng Hui aka Ismail Ax. Precisely how many mass shooters have to turn out to have adopted Muslim names before we get it? Islam has become the tribe of choice of those who hate American society. I'm not talking about people who grew up as Muslims, confident and secure in their faith, good fathers, sons and neighbors. I'm talking about the angry, malignant, narcissist loners who want to reject their community utterly, to throw off their 'slave name' and represent the downtrodden of the earth by shooting their friends and neighbors.
This morning I read that the Virginia Tech shooter died with the name Ismail Ax written in red ink on his arm. The mainstream press doesn't seem to have a clue as to what this might mean. To quote Indiana Jones, "Didn't any of you guys go to Sunday School?"
The story starts with a man named Abraham. He is the father of the Jews, the Muslims and the Christians. He was born in Iraq, the son of a wealthy idol manufacturer. He came to believe that there was only one true God and, according to tradition, took up his ax and destroyed his father's idols.
