The only thing that could replace the media's obsession with the murder of a late term abortion doc is a .........right wing Nazi (National Socialists are lefties, but why split hairs?). I was floored last night while watching an exchange between Ellis Henican (Newsday) and Bill O'Reilly discussing that lack of coverage for the jihadi who murdered a US soldier, wounded another and planned attacks of churches, Jewish centers and other targets.
Henican dismissed the Islamic attack on the Arkansas military station and murder of a US soldier as a random act of violence. Henican remonstrated with O'Reilly, asking, "What about the 9,000 other murders in the country? Why not discuss them as well?" [paraphrasing]. So the left narrative is that there is no war on the West, there is no jihad. Surrender. But the abortion doc, according to Henican, is enormously important, because there is a moral value. Henican's moral value? Not that the murdered doctor performed over 60,000 late term abortions of viable babies, but that he was murdered -- which is undeniably terrible and wrong. The criminal who shot Dr. Tiller had a prior record (as did the shooter of the Holocaust Museum security guard). Why did these nuts have guns? I do not believe in gun control, but I do believe that criminals should lose the privilege of gun ownership. That's the law, is it not? Why aren't we pursuing the failure of law enforcement on this issue? Why isn't the media even talking about that?
If anyone grabs the video clip of O'Reilly/Henican, please send it on.
But back to the media's Nazi party. This random killer, 89 year old Nazi Von Brunn, is vile, and I hope his gunshot wound kills him. But he does not represent a threat to the West, to our society -- he is a whackjob. The Nazis lost the war in World War II. This disconnect the left wing media is suffering is lethal for Americans, and particularly dangerous for non-believers (Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs etc.).
The murder of Private Long is the news story that should be given 24/7 coverage. Abdulhakim Muhammad, a soldier in the war for Allah, said he was justified. He said, "It wasn't murder, it was war". The same war that killed almost 3,000 Americans on 911. The same war that has committed 13,358 Islamic attacks since 911. The same enemy that vows to annihilate the Jews and destroy Israel. The same enemy that is taking over Europe. The enemy makes no secret of their hate, their intent, their ultimate objective.
Did the media give this woman any coverage? What if she was screaming in defense of Nazi Von Brunn's ideology?

I thought Atlas reader Audrey had a spot on observation, prompted by my remark, "How relieved everyone in the media was ... that the shooter was not a Muslim -- now they can talk about it, now they can spend all day on it and analyze every irrelevant factoid":
I don't know how I can continue as I am, to be surprised/shocked/appalled by the shameless hypocrisy. I'm listening to the circus at the Holocaust Museum. It's been going all morning and will continue for the rest of the day. Does my memory fail me, or have there been a number of extremely violent acts against Jews -- Seattle? etc. -- where the killer was a Muslim, and there was no such big show.
Maybe it's me -- but I see this phony fiesta as nothing to do with horror at this ugly murder and anti-semitism -- no one there gives a damn about that -- it ONLY has to do with the fact that it was a "Right wing Nazi."
The FBI said the killers face was in all newspapers and on TV and asked the public to call in if anyone has any information on him or any possible accomplices. Did they do the same when the killer was (how many times?) a violent Muslim?
Did I hear the FBI guy say that the FBI doesn't approve of violent hate crimes??? Huh? Did someone think they might?
So now they have more reasons to go after Jews -- (and tea partiers, and our military) -- in the name of Nazis.
Oh, Mr. Nazi Killer has served the Obama camp and the Islamist DHS very well.
Another keen observation:
Obama Breeds Climate of Hate Against Jews By Rabbi Dr. Morton H. Pomerantz
Our new president did not tell a virulent anti-Semite to travel to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington to kill Jews, but he is most certainly creating a climate of hate against us.
It is no coincidence that we are witnessing this level of hatred toward Jews as President Barack Obama positions America against the Jewish state.
Just days ago Obama traveled to Cairo, Egypt. It was his second trip in a short time to visit Muslim countries. He sent a clear message by not visiting Israel.
But this was code.
In Cairo, Obama said things that pose a grave danger to Jews in Israel, in America and everywhere.
And if his views are not vigorously opposed they will help create a danger as great as that posed by the Nazis to the Jewish people.
Just last week, Obama told his worldwide audience — more than 100 million people — that the killing of six million Jews during the Holocaust was the equivalent of Israel’s actions in dealing with the Palestinians.
This remark is incredible on its face, an insult to the six million Jews who died as a result of Hitler’s genocide — and it is a form of revisionism that will bode evil for Jews for years to come.
While Obama acknowledged that “six million Jews were killed — more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today” — his discussion about the Holocaust was followed by this statement: “On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have suffered in pursuit of a homeland.”
“On the other hand . . . ”?
Obama’s clever construct comparing the mass genocide of six million Jews to the Palestinian struggle will not be lost on the estimated 100 million Muslims who tuned into to hear him.
Perhaps it was not lost on James W. von Brinn, the 88-year-old white supremacist identified as the alleged attacker Wednesday at the Holocaust Museum. He apparently felt that he could easily take retribution against the Jews for the atrocities Obama implies they are guilty of.
There's more. Go.
