In response to the Ohio State attack, Senator Tim Kaine got stuck in an Islamic apologist feedback loop without even knowing the facts.
Immediately after the events, Senator Kaine tweeted; “Deeply saddened by the senseless act of gun violence at Ohio State this morning. Praying for the injured and the entire Buckeye community.”
Senator Kaine didn’t consider the perpetrator of the attack, nor the details before tweeting. But for Islamic apologists, truth and straight talking hardly matter.
Instead, blaming terrorism on guns, mental illness, poverty, racism and every other factor besides Islam, is of the utmost importance.
In fairness, Senator Kaine did later partially correct his account, by describing the attacker as using a knife rather than a gun.
But Senator Kaine again avoided all mention of Islam, so the shame of his actions is barely diminished.
This denial is simply the latest in a broader pattern, of the Left desperately seeking to avoid all discussions of a relationship between Islam and terrorism.
Regrettably, the Left which once cared for the concerns of ordinary people, has become a movement which blatantly disregards the interests of native inhabitants, in place of hostile newcomers.
