If The Shooter Had Been Muslim, Peter King Is Already Blaming The Left For What They’d Say
The congressman who wants to spend his time investigating Muslims was asked by radio host Laura Ingraham what he thinks the reaction would have been had the Arizona shooter been Muslim. Never one to miss an opportunity to bash the left, or Muslims, King responds predictably, claiming the left would turn it into “a total defense of Islam.” (via Mediaite)
The first statement [from the left after past instances of Islamic terror] was we have no right to judge an entire community by one person. This is a deranged gunman who in no way reflects what Islam stands for, and it would be terrible if Americans tried to even look at Islam as being responsible for this. It would have been a total defense of Islam, a total isolation of this person as an individual acting by himself, and an implied attack on anyone that would even question whether or not his religious beliefs were involved.
How about the fact that no one has even asked what Jared Lee Loughner’s religion is? It certainly hasn’t been part of the national dialogue. Would that have been the case if the shooter were dark-skinned?
