The usual suspects in the media and left wing sites have been promoting the idea that the person on a murderous rampage in France was a far right maniac or Neo Nazi. This satisfies their agenda just as it did after the Gifford’s shooting where they blamed Palin and Rush for inspiring what turned out to be a rabid lunatic who was more to the left than the right.
In the recent shootings in France the fact that the paratroopers who were murdered were from ‘minorities’ and the school was Jewish have led the media and various pundits to claim that this time it really has to be a white supremacist or Nazi. The small matter of Islamists hating Western armies seems to have escaped attention, never mind their penchant for killing Jews.
Now the left have to find excuses for a self-confessed Al Qaeda terrorist who has carried out these acts:
The self-confessed Al Qaeda terrorist thought to have murdered seven people across south west France over the past two weeks has been arrested after a 12 hour siege, local media is reporting. Mohammed Mera, 24, was detained by police just before 2.30pm local time - after he was told that police would storm his Toulouse flat if he did not give himself up. …
Just two hours before the raid he told news channel France 24's editor Ebba Kalondo he had 'filmed everything' with a small video camera and 'intended to put the videos online'. It has also emerged he was being tracked by French security services 'for years' and had broken out of a jail in Kandahar, Afghanistan, as part of a mass Taliban escape in 2008.
He said he is punishing France's army for its foreign interventions and the plight of Palestinian children - and has promised to give himself up later today.
Oh well, we libertarians are still in the clear. Nobody much tends to look to us as potential suicide bombers or terrorists, other than the American DHS which is keeping an eye on those Ron Paul supporters as potential right wing militias.
