Random Acts of Jihad?

In an recent interview with Vox, Barack Obama pontificated on the recent jihadi attacks in Paris, which he said were perpetrated by “a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who … randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” It was absurd to say the attack was “random” when the Muslim jihadis’ explicit motive was killing Jews. Obama mouthpiece Josh Earnest struggled mightily to explain his boss’s comments: “The adverb that the president chose was used to indicate that the individuals who were killed in that terrible, tragic incident were killed not because of who they were but because of where they randomly happened to be.” He then told reporters, “There were people other than just Jews who were in that deli.” Earnest repeatedly denied the kosher status of the market had anything to do with the attack. What utterly asinine horse pucky. American cops are clearly racist, according to Obama, but Muslims couldn’t possibly target Jews on purpose. Obama and his underlings have a serious problem denying the role of Islam in the rise of terrorism on his watch. But perhaps even Obama’s cronies realized how ridiculous the whole episode was, later taking to Twitter to “clarify” things. “Our view has not changed,” Earnest tweeted. “Terror attack at Paris Kosher market was motivated by anti-Semitism. POTUS didn’t intend to suggest otherwise.” Somehow, we’re disinclined to believe that.
