Wouldn’t be prudent to just say something without all the facts

Early Saturday morning, a bomb went off in a mosque in Bloomington, Minnesota, as members of the congregation were starting to arrive for prayers. Nobody was injured, but the blast blew out a window and caused damage to the imam’s office. One member of the congregation reported seeing “a truck fleeing from the parking lot.” While there haven’t been any arrests or suspects identified, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton called the bombing a “terrible, dastardly, cowardly act” and “an act of terrorism” Sunday. And our tough-on-terrorism president? He’s been whining about Hilary Clinton and lying about his poll numbers, as well as promising fire and fury at North Korea, but no, not a word about the mosque bombing. Jeez, do you liberals expect him to comment on every little act of domestic terrorism or something? It’s not like any Minnesota Muslims voted for him, so why would he notice their house of worship being bombed?

Happily, Trump spokesNazi Sebastian Gorka took to MSNBC to offer a perfectly reasonable explanation for the White House’s silence on the Minnesota bombing. Trump is simply being prudent and waiting until all the facts are in, because you never know, maybe liberals bombed the mosque to blame it on rightwingers:

There’s a great rule: All initial reports are false. You have to check them and find out who the perpetrators are. We’ve had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by right wing individuals in the last six months that turned out to be prop propagated by the left. Let’s allow the local authorities to provide their assessment and then the White House will make its comments.

The Department of Homeland Security did at least issue a very general statement in the name of acting Secretary Elaine Duke, saying DHS was ready to coordinate with local law enforcement and that DHS “fully supports the rights of all to freely and safely worship the faith of their choosing,” and “vigorously” condemned attacks on religious institutions, so that may be all we hear from the administration.

Oh, sure, Trump has been quick to attribute other events to Islamic terrorism, Gorka acknowledged, like the London Bridge attack, but “when somebody shouts ‘Allahu Ackbar’ as they’re stabbing a police officer, it’s pretty clear it’s not a case of the Mafia robbing a bank, wouldn’t you say so?” So yes, let’s wait to see whether the Mafia bombed the mosque. Also, let’s please ignore the times Trump has prematurely condemned “terrorist attacks” that weren’t actually terrorist attacks, like June’s deadly attack on a casino in Manila, which local officials concluded was a failed robbery attempt; or February’s nonexistent terror attack in Sweden; or the crash of an EgyptAir jet over the Mediterranean last year that French investigators determined was an accident. We owe it to the survivors of the Bowling Green Massacre to make sure all the facts are in. Then we can jump to conclusions.

So maybe Trump might consider a more general condemnation of any attack on a house of faith, regardless of who false-flagged it? Probably not needed, since the DHS said bombing mosques is bad, but the president is a bigger name than Elaine Duke. Gorka wasn’t going to take the bait, because the president is a very busy man:

I’m not going to give social media advice to a man who basically won the election in large part thanks to his understanding of social media and to destroy the fake news industrial complex’s predictions about who would win the last election. So just hold your horses, count to ten and the president will do what he deems fit.

Pfft. Mosque bombing. Don’t tell the president what he cares about, OK? Your job is to shut up and report how America is being made greater. Also, to remind everyone that Donald Trump won the election. Why don’t you ever tell America that, huh?

    “when somebody shouts ‘Allahu Ackbar’ as they’re stabbing a police officer, it’s pretty clear it’s not a case of the Mafia robbing a bank, wouldn’t you say so?”

    So as long as someone doesn’t yell “God hates Muslims!” before detonating the bomb, it isn’t a hate crime? Good to know!

    The sad thing is, this bullshit has become an article of faith on the white supremacist far right; I’ve seen it all the time with racist Trump supporter trolls, when you bring up the huge increase in hate crimes since the monster’s election, they just insist they were all faked, and then have like one fake hate crime to point to and claim that every single one was really false. Of course they also claim that all leftists are violent because one dude threw a rock at an otherwise peaceful protest against Milo Yiannracistandmisogynistshithead, and claim that Black Lives Matter is somehow a violent terrorist group. These constantly lying assholes don’t give a shit about actual objective reality and just make up whatever is convenient to support their point of view, like Donnie himself.

    “What I would say is an attack on a mosque is an attack on a synagogue, it’s an attack on a church, it’s an attack on all faith communities, so we stand with you, a million Protestants in Minnesota,” said the Rev. Curtiss DeYoung, the chief executive of the Minnesota Council of Churches.

    I don’t know why this is filling me with such rage.

    But as the MSNBC host pointed out, authorities can and should still condemn attacks, even if the perpetrator is in question.

    “You don’t have to make a statement about who did it but you can make a statement denouncing how terrible it is to attack a building of worship,” the host said.

    “That’s fine and I’m sure the president will do that,” Gorka responded.

    But three days have passed and the president still hasn’t done that.

    What do you want to guess that Sebastian Derpa also Sandy Hooked the Québec mosque shooting as a false flag because “Trudeau would never martyr one of his own”?

    That’s kind of what Deplorebel Media said, accusing Trudeau and a rookie MP of faking the attack to get the “blasphemy law” rushed through Parliament (M103 isn’t even a blasphemy law but a nonbinding motion to set up a commission to study Islamophobia). Somehow or another his brother even got dragged into the conspiracy theory too (Sacha, not Michel, although the scumbags have no shortage of paranoid nonsense they foment about him too) because he made a documentary or two for PressTV. He also has a mustache and sometimes a beard, so, obviously, Sacha is a Muslim.

    “The recent efforts to transform Sebastian Gorka from a far-right Hungarian politician into an anti-Nazi liberal fighting against anti-Semitism can be added to the growing catalogue of alternative facts brought to us by the Trump administration and its supporters. Gorka, deputy assistant to President Trump, spent almost half of his adult life in Hungary. He became a U.S. citizen only five years ago.”
