Liberals are defined by knee-jerk reactions to events.
Take Democratic Senator, Tim Kaine, formerly Hillary Clinton’s running mate. His reaction to the attack at Ohio State University is amazing. First, a recap of the story.
Ohio State student, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, attempted to kill a whole lot of his fellow Ohio State University students.
Mr. Artan, a Muslim, tried to run over a bunch of them with his car. Next, he leapt out of his car and began slashing them with a knife, injuring eleven people, before he was shot dead by a cop who asked him to stop slashing people.
Arian refused. Now he is dead. What a human tragedy.
CNN reports that Mr. Artan was inspired by terrorist propaganda put out by ISIS.
Mr. Kaine could react to:
√ The horror of the attack.
√ Mr. Artan’s terrorist motivations.
√ Another Muslim attempts mass murder on U.S. soil.
Not Mr. Kaine. According to the Washington Times, the Senator’s initial reaction was to label the event as a “senseless act of gun violence”, even though no gun was used, except by the police.
Is he upset that the cop shot and killed Mr. Artan when he refused to stop slashing college kids?
Why no reference to Mr. Artan’s religion or terrorist motivations?
Only later did Mr. Kaine correct the record.
Another vintage liberal knee-jerk response to an act of Islamic terrorism.
Let us all join together and call for a ban on cars and knives.
