Tim Kaine’s knee-jerk reaction to Islamic terrorism

By Tom Quiner

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.

    What a senseless act of liberalism. Pardon the redundancy.

    Hmm. Another senseless act of stupidity.

    Finally, someone willing to get to the heart of the matter. I’ve been reading for years about the destruction caused by cars, especially SUVs, and it’s high time we put a stop to it. Who hasn’t read stories like this:
    Car veers off road, killing 3; driver, was killed as well.
    SUV takes the life of unarmed man as he was crossing the street.
    SUV plows into church building, killing 15 inside.
    The car was responsible for the death of a mother, child, and the teen driver who was texting his grandmother.
    We should all be outraged, yet each day we willingly climb into these killing machines. When will it stop?

      I heard someone once choked to death on a chicken bone. Let’s ban the damn birds.

        I’m sure it was the chicken bone that choked the person. Evil birds.

        If someone bleeds to death, are we supposed to ban open wounds?

          I like the way you’re getting into the spirit of the absurdity. Thanks for writing!
