Yesterday Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee welcomed into the United States, posted a rant on Facebook against non-Muslims, got into a car, rammed into a group of people at Ohio State University where he was a student, then went on a stabbing spree. Eleven people were injured before the terrorist was shot by a cop.
(Have you ever heard of a Christian or Jewish or Hindu stabber going on a stabbing spree? Yeah, me neither…)
Early reports were that it was an attacker with a gun. The left-wing media were so excited: they thought this was going to be another teachable moment about why guns need to be banned.
Then the uh-oh moment: The attack was not a shooting, but a car-and-knife attack, by a Muslim. So they stopped writing about it. It didn’t fit the narrative.
Look at what the university president said:
"We don't know anything that would link this to any community. We certainly don't have any evidence that would say that's the case.”
Huh? He was Somali. He was Muslim. He had once said he wanted to kill one billion infidels. Those are the “links.”
This is a reason Trump won, in Ohio and elsewhere. Not just the problem of Muslim violence. But the problem of media and political and academia’s wilful blindness to it.
PS: We just sent our own Faith Goldy down to Ohio, to report on the scene. Keep your eyes peeled on our website for her reports.
NEXT: Government funding for Trudeau's "Syrian refugees" ends next month. Immigration lawyer Guidy Mamman joins me to talk about the impact of so-called “Month 13”.
THEN: Lou Iacobelli, Chair of the Parental Rights in Education Defence Fund, on a troubling Ontario court decision:
A judge has ruled against a Greek Orthodox father who wanted advance notice when his children would be taught about issues like homosexuality and abortion, so he could pull his children from class.
