A Rush to "Alternative Facts" Judgement . . .

The Idiocracy administration and their favorite bootlicking media outlet just can't wait to stir shit up even more than they already have over this past week.

This is what The Gadfly is talking about when he states his belief that right wing extremism as practiced by our own home grown assholes is much more of a threat to America's stability and security than a bunch of rag-tag Muslim zealots riding around in Toyota pick-up trucks and hiding out in caves in the mid-east:
MASS SHOOTING at a Quebec City mosque last night left six people dead and eight wounded. The targeted mosque, the Cultural Islamic Center of Quebec, was the same one at which a severed pig’s head was left during Ramadan last June. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the episode a “terrorist attack on Muslims.”
Almost immediately, various news outlets and political figures depicted the shooter as Muslim. Right-wing nationalist tabloids in the UK instantly linked it to Islamic violence. Fox News claimed that “witnesses said at least one gunman shouted ‘Allahu akbar!’,” and then added this about the shooter’s national origin:
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer exploited the attack to justify President Trump’s ban on immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries. “It’s a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the President is taking steps to be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to our nation’s safety and security,” Spicer said at this afternoon’s briefing when speaking of the Quebec City attack.
But these assertions are utterly false. The suspect is neither Moroccan nor Muslim. The Moroccan individual, Mohamed el Khadir, was actually one of the worshippers at the mosque and called 911 to summon the police, and played no role whatsoever in the shooting.
The actual shooting suspect is 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, a white French Canadian who is, by all appearances, a rabid anti-immigrant nationalist. A leader of a local immigration rights groups, Fran├žois Deschamps, told a local paper he recognized his photo as an anti-immigrant far-right “troll” who has been hostile to the group online. And Bisonnette’s Facebook page – now taken down but still archived – lists among its “likes” the far right French nationalist Marine Le Pen, Islam critics Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the Israeli Defense Forces, and Donald J. Trump.

So basically the Canadian version of Dylann Roof acts out his wingnut gun-fondling fantasy and massacres a bunch of Muslim Canadians in their place of worship and before blood has even ceased seeping from the shot up bodies of the victims, Fux Noize (they have never earned the right to call themselves a "News" organization) is bleating all over the air-waves that it was a Moroccan Muslim who perpetrated the murders and Drumpf's alternative facts spewing press toad Sean Spicer smugly rushes out a press release exploiting the tragedy as justification for dear leader's draconian and stupid fucking immigration/travel ban.

Now - before The Gadfly's detractors get their right-wing girly knickers bunched up in a knot in thinking that The Gadfly is a Muslim terrorist sympathizer --- first - fuck y'all -- second --- consider the following and then answer the question at the end:

In Drumpf's executive order for the immigrantion/travel ban he targeted seven countries.  Those countries are Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, the Sudan and Yemen.

Drumpf invoked the specter of the 9/11 terrorist attacks to bolster the rationale for his order.  In fact - he invoked the memory of 9/11 not once, but three times in the wording of his repulsive screed.

It is a FACT that the nineteen 9/11 hijacker terrorists were from the following countries -- 15 of them were from Saudi Arabia.  2 of them were from United Arab Emirates (UAE) and 1 each from Eqypt and Lebanon.

Hmmm The Gadfly thought to his dirty old fucking liberal hippie self -- there seems to be something amiss with this picture here -- whatever could it be??

Oh yes -- that's it! .. None of the countries from where the 9/11 hijackers originated from are on Dear Leader's executive  immigration/travel ban order.  Odd dontcha' think?  Oh but that is not all - here's a list of Arab countries where Dear Leader Drumpf has business/property interests (that we know of - since he refuses to release his financials and tax returns):  Qatar, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

So here's the question that is begging to be asked and outright groveling to be answered and is directed to The Gadfly's conservative friends and Drumpf supporters:

Q:  Since Drumpf found it necessary to invoke the memories of the horror of 9/11 (and no mention of any other terror incidents) multiple times as justification in support of his executive order - then why weren't the three countries who spawned 17 of the 19 September 11 attackers on the immigration/travel ban list ?? ??



Answer that fucking question coherently, with no fucking "alternative facts" bullshit and fucking honestly.  Do that and then maybe - just maybe - you and The Gadfly can have an adult conversation on the matter --- mkay?

Until then - Fux Noize and Sean Spicer should just keep their ignorant, antagonistic pie-holes the fuck shut about incidents like this until all of the reality-based world of facts are clearly known and also because there is ample reason to question just exactly where Donald Drumpf's loyalties truly lie.
