Yesterday, Kansas late term abortionist George "Tiller the baby killer" Tiller was gunned down while attending church. Today, two soldiers who'd just completed basic training were shot outside of a Little Rock, AR, military recruiting center. William Long, 24, died; Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, was wounded. Here are two shootings that can reasonably be called acts of domestic terrorism. Guess which killing will most outrage liberals? If you guessed the killing of the soldier, you're wrong.
Soldier William Long was shot to death in front of the Army/Navy Career Center by Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, formerly Carlos Bledsoe. Police believe that Muhammad was religiously as well as politically motivated. With a name like Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, y'think?
After Tiller's execution the Left immediately went into full rage mode. Blogs and the MSM, especially NBC and its cable network MSNBC, attacked virtually everyone right of center. Tiller's killing was called an act of "domestic conservative terrorism" and "Christian terrorism". The pro-life movement, predictably, was hung in virtual effigy and "The O'Reilly Factor" host Bill O'Reilly was blamed for the killing because he dared to expose Tiller's nefarious doings. For the Left, every opponent of abortion and every critic of Tiller is as guilty of his assassination as the man who actually did it. That's what happened after the shooting of George Tiller, late term abortionist.
And after the shooting of American soldier William Long? NOTHING. The Left was as silent as falling snow. Why? Because the murder of William Long was a politically correct murder. William Long was a white American soldier; his killer was a black American convert to Islam. For liberals the killing of an American by a Muslim is ok because they see Muslims as victims of America. The killing of an American soldier by a Muslim is even more acceptable to the Left. It fits into their whole "chickens coming home to roust" narrative.
Simply put, liberals love abortion and hate the American military. One less abortionist, and the prospect that more babies will be born as a result, horrifies them. But one less American soldier is just fine. It means one less cog in the imperialist American machine. So killing Pvt. William Long is acceptable to the Left. It may be murder but it's politically correct murder.
