#8 This is CNN

"There will be questions about copycats," Blitzer said. "There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions, they used the same killing device: a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians."

#9 RE: link in comment #8

Blitzer has a rectal/cranial inversion.

He has it backwards.

  • Nice, France

  • Paris attack on police

  • London

  • Charlottesville?

  • Barcelona


Seems that there are adequate examples for jihadis to draw from.

#10 Ban Muslims renting anything?

A well meaning half-measure. Banning Muslims should produce a high level of success.

#15 Heh. There are even parts of this country over which I wouldn't shed a tear at this point.

Yes, that's terrible, but I know perfectly well that there a lot of "Americans" who'd like to see me and mine dead.

#16 Even Allahsquish Eeyore at HotAir mocked him:
Via the Media Research Center and CNS, after eight jihadi car-ramming terror attacks this year alone, I think it’s more likely people will ask whether Wolf ate paint chips as a kid.
