Another senseless, unnecessary and horrible mass killing. Where does it end?
Notice however, the stark differences in how the media and law enforcement (and Muslims) reacted to the event. via Shooting at Sikh temple: 7 dead, including suspected gunman, police say | The Lookout – Yahoo! News.
Law enforcement officials are treating the case as an “act of domestic terrorism,” police said, and the FBI is leading the investigation. The names of the victims in Sunday’s shooting were not released.
Media across the country if not the world were immediately identifying the suspect as white, ex-military, with a 9/11 tattoo. Then later as a white supremacist.

Contrast that to two deadly acts of jihad carried out on U.S. soil by Muslim Americans.
First and foremost, the Fort Hood jihad. Obama joked as he was forced to comment on the act of jihad that killed 14 including an unborn child. The media were reluctant to identify the killer as a Muslim although witnesses reported the killer shouting “allah akbar” as he kept killing. Later, a solder was ordered to delete the cell phone video of the attack. Why?
The killer still receives Army pay and has yet to be tried. The government is positioning the trial for a conviction just before the 2012 election. But most absurd about the attack is that after years of so-called analysis by experts, the government refuses to even consider the deadly attack what it was: jihad. The Dept of Defense has called it an act of workplace violence (as we told you in 2010). Extensive open source research long ago determined that Hasan was a firm believer in jihad and preached it to ranking military members.
Then there is the case of Pvt. Andy Long. He was killed in Arkansas at a recruiting center by a Muslim who had been on the FBI’s radar after traveling to Yemen. A second soldier was also wounded. The Muslim killer admitted he was waging jihad on numerous occasions and not only have local and national law enforcement refused to acknowledge this act of jihad by a Muslim, the feds have refused to get involved at all. They refused the case entirely. Further, Obama threatened to veto a spending bill because it included recognition of a Purple Heart for Pvt. Long.
If you didn’t read, also yesterday two incidents at Newark airport were reported in the most nondescript manner, Travelers stranded after Newark airport security breach cancels more than 100 flights
Terminal C at Newark Liberty International Airport was locked down for three hours Sunday, creating a huge screening backlog that forced the cancellation or delay of more than 165 flights, after officials said a passenger prematurely walked away from a security checkpoint.
Authorities searched for the female passenger based on a checkpoint surveillance video following the 8:45 a.m. incident said Al Della Fave, a spokesman for the Port Authority Police.
Local officials of the Transportation Security Administration eventually concluded the woman had boarded a United Airlines flight to Cleveland. But the security agency only arrived at its conclusion after the flight had landed in Cleveland at 10:45 a.m., and authorities were never able to talk to the woman or identify her by name.
“She walked out of the checkpoint area before the screening process was complete,” Ann Davis, a TSA spokeswoman, said in a statement. “Management at Newark will conduct a comprehensive review of the incident and will take appropriate action.”
Feel safer? Yet no description of the woman, her color, clothing, etc. Why not? Another report added some detail:
Law enforcement sources told Fox 5 News what officials left out of their public statements – that the woman had tested positive for residue of possible explosive material on her hands, and slipped away from the TSA before she could be thoroughly screened.
Could that be why officials left out a more complete description of the suspect?
There is no excuse for yesterday’s killing of Sikh’s or anyone else. Similarly, there is no excuse for biased, one-sided media and politicians who are conveniently absent when Muslims attack Sikh’s, kill Americans, and slaughter other Muslims.
We truly are living in Orwellian times.
