BTer Jonathan Strong asks the apparently rhetorical question:
How Could Ft. Hood Be Anything But Terrorism?
Good question, Jonathan, since -- as we all know -- it's standard behaviour for those nefarious, swarthy evildoers to, as part of their nefarious, evil plan, join the U.S. military, then eventually plead for their release, to the point where they offer to reimburse the government for the entire cost of their training and education if that's what it takes.
I have a humble suggestion: To make things easier in the Canadian blogosphere, can Stephen Taylor simply rename the Blogging Tories to "Unbelievably Stupid People Who Hate Muslims"? Seriously, I'm betting that would save folks loads of time they'd normally spend eventually figuring out that those people are all terminally retarded racists.
UNSURPRISINGLY, the terminal stupid continues into Jonathan's comments section, where commenter "Canuckguy" embarrasses all carbon-based lifeforms thusly:
Political correctness reigns. As with crimes where the culprit is obvious, he(Hasan) is still referred to by the media as 'a suspect'.
Quite right, CG, it's just political correctness run amuck. Ignore, of course, that it is absolutely standard procedure to use the word "suspect" even in cases like this. Like when Scott Roeder -- who murdered Dr. George Tiller in front of numerous witnesses -- was still described in the media as the "suspect."
But, hey, CG, don't let reality intrude into your comfortable, tinfoil-wrapped existence.
