Jihadi John Had a Job

E-I-E-I-keel you!

The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.

But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.

The Kuwaiti-born Emwazi, in his mid-20s, appears to have left little trail on social media or elsewhere online. Those who knew him say he was polite and had a penchant for wearing stylish clothes while adhering to the tenets of his Islamic faith. He had a beard and was mindful of making eye contact with women, friends said.

He was raised in a middle-class neighborhood in London and on occasion prayed at a mosque in Greenwich.

Emwazi decided to move to his birthplace, Kuwait, where he landed a job working for a computer company, according to the e-mails he wrote to Qureshi. He came back to London twice, the second time to finalize his wedding plans to a woman in Kuwait.

A job and a wife! I guess he still has a job, only he employs knife strokes in place of keystrokes.

These “Brooklyn men” had jobs too:

Three men from Brooklyn have been arrested and charged with trying to help the Islamic State, according to a criminal complaint unsealed in federal court on Wednesday.

They had also discussed harming President Obama and carrying out attacks in the United States if they were unable to travel overseas. One of the three men was arrested while trying to fly to Turkey, where authorities say he planned to head to the border with Syria to meet with representatives from the Islamic State. Another of the men planned to follow him there next month, while the third man was helping finance some of these travel efforts.

Juraboev, 24, and Habibov, 30, are both citizens of Uzbekistan; Saidakhmetov, 19, is a citizen of Kazakhstan. The complaint says that Juraboev and Saidakhmetov, who were set to appear Wednesday at the U.S. courthouse in Brooklyn, are legal, permanent residents of the country; Habibov, who is not described that way, appeared at the U.S. courthouse in Jacksonville, Fla. The three men each face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison for attempting to join Islamic State, which is also known as ISIL or ISIS.

Federal agents visited Juraboev at his home last August after seeing postings on a Web site that promoted Islamic State to Uzbek audiences, the complaint said. These postings discussed whether someone in the United States could swear an oath to Islamic State and discussed killing Obama.

“I am in USA now but we don’t have any arms,” the post said. “But is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here? What I’m saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do? That will strike fear in the hearts of infidels.”

Habibov runs mall kiosks that fix cellphones and sell kitchenware in Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Virginia, according to the complaint, and Saidakhmetov worked for him at some of these kiosks last year.

Legal immigrants, gainfully employed, living the American Dream—and they still wanted to blow sh*t up. Marie Harf is going to take this awfully hard.

How Many Muslim Terrorist Sympathizers Does it Take to Screw Up Civilization?

The other day, we shared a story with you about how many Muslims in Gaza and Arab-occupied Israel oppose ISIS. All but 14% of them, which we figured out to be about 238,000 who give a wink and a thumbs-up to the beheaders and burners at the stake. We didn’t find that news very comforting.

We find this news even less so:

A BBC poll suggests that an overwhelming majority of British Muslims oppose the use of violence against people publishing images of the Prophet Muhammad.

A thousand people of Muslim faith were surveyed in the weeks that followed the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.

The poll also found that 1 in 4 Muslims have some sympathy with the motives behind those shootings.

While it is true that three out of four is an “overwhelming majority” of anything, in this case, the overwhelming majority takes a back seat to the overwhelming minority. One in four Muslims (27% to be exact) sympathetic to the Charlie Hebdo shootings (or the “motives” behind them) equals 756,000 fans of cold-blooded killings of certain cartoonists and kosher deli shoppers. That would fall between Fort Worth, Texas and Detroit, Michigan as the 18th largest city in America.

It also means Britain’s Muslims are nearly twice as virulent Jew-haters and terrorist supporters as so-called Palestinians by percentage (27% to 14%), and over three times as populous (756,000 to 238,000). Good luck with that, Limeys.

As the famous Sun headline once put it:

PS: President Obama is right. This isn’t about Islam. It’s about 14%-27% of Islamers. At a little over two billion…well, you can do the math.

No Justice, No Problem!

What does it take to get your ass canned at the BBC? Decades of pederasty, sure (sometimes), but anything else?

As the woman, named Chava, expressed her fears over rising anti-Semitism in the country – fear shared by most of France’s half a million-strong Jewish community – Wilcox inexplicably interrupted her to state that “many critics though of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.”

His apparent equating of anti-Semitism and even murder of innocent French Jews by terrorists to Israel’s battle against Islamist terrorism drew widespread anger from British Jews, as did his follow-up comments, in which he appeared minimize the crisis felt by French Jews by asking: “you understand everything is seen from different perspectives?”

The Campaign Against Antisemitism group slammed the “disgraceful” comments, which triggered a deluge of complaints from viewers.

Wilcox offered a weak apology in response to the controversy – saying only that it was “poorly-phrased”.

Odd. Phrasing things well is his job, his profession. I’m pretty sure he said exactly what he meant to say: that Arabs are routinely slaughtered in their shops by radical Jewish terrorists.

Anyhow, here’s his punishment:

The BBC will not be taking any action against a senior correspondent accused of anti-Semitism during his coverage of a major Paris rally following the Islamist terrorist campaign in the French capital last month.

“I see nothing in Mr Willcox’s comments which is intrinsically disrespectful, and I saw nothing in Chava’s demeanour to suggest that she felt disrespected,” said Fraser Steel

“I am not proposing to uphold the complaints… I share Mr Willcox’s view that his comments were poorly-phrased, but I think they were no worse than that.”

The British suffered horribly during the Blitz in WWII. But as Irish, Indians, Americans, and Africans also suffered under British colonial rule, I think “everything is seen from different perspectives”. Carry on!

Mall Cops Wanted

Islamic terrorists—sorry, violent extremists—want to blow up malls around the nation and the world. What does the head of Homeland Security have to say about it?

Watch yourself around the Dunkin’ Donuts:

GLORIA BORGER, CNN: Are they safe in going to the Mall of America today, if you want to go take your kids to the Mall of America?

JEH JOHNSON, SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY: I would say that if anyone is planning to go to the Mall of America today, they have got to be particularly careful. And, as the statement you read indicates, there will be enhanced security there that will be apparent to people who are there.

BORGER: Federal security as well?

JOHNSON: There will be enhanced security. But public vigilance, public awareness and public caution in situations like this is particularly important. And it’s the environment we’re in, frankly.

Extremely violent folks of no other particular description threaten American citizens in the course of their everyday lives on American soil, and the best he’s got is watch your ass? Does that mean the threat is genuine? In which case, why isn’t his advice to keep your head down? If you need a new bra from Victoria’s Secret, do so only under protection of covering fire.

How is this not front-page news?

DHS HEAD RECOMMENDS SHOPPING ONLY IN CAMO
Sidearm, Kevlar vest optional, says Security Czar

To paraphrase Smoky the Bear, only you can prevent random automatic weapons fire. Meanwhile, I’d give the Foot Locker and T. J. Maxx a wide berth if I were you. Use Amazon.

Italy Helpfully Responds To ISIS

How to navigate traffic in Rome

In a recently released video that showed the killing of 21 Christians in Libya, all but one of them Egyptian, the Islamic State issued an ominous warning: “Today we are south of Rome,” one masked militant said. “We will conquer Rome with Allah’s permission.”

To make matters worse, Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence Group, pointed out that supporters of the Islamic State have begun using a hashtag to warn of their plan to reach “Rome.”

Exactly what “Rome” means to the Islamic State is unclear — some experts say it may actually be a reference to the United States or Turkey, or even the West in general. But Italy is worried. Libya is just a short boat ride across the Mediterranean. Thousands of refugees already make this journey to Italian shores every year. What’s to stop the Islamic State?

As word of #We_Are_Coming_O_Rome spread across the Italian media, Rome residents took the opportunity to respond to the Islamic State. And they did so in an especially Roman way.

With warnings about the traffic.

A Shooting and Two Funerals

A lot of overtime detail for the Copenhagen PD:

Mourners gathered Wednesday in Copenhagen for the funeral of Jewish community member Dan Uzan, killed in a weekend terror rampage that also targeted a free speech forum in the Danish capital.

Uzan, 37, was providing security for a bat mitzvah party taking place behind a Copenhagen synagogue when the gunman struck.

Large numbers attended Uzan’s funeral, held at the Mosaiske Vestre Jewish cemetery in Copenhagen amid heightened security. Armed police patrolled the area, and a sniper could be seen on a nearby rooftop.

Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt was among those present for the somber ceremony.

They say “large numbers”, but they don’t say how large.

This large?

The gunman who killed two people in Copenhagen was today buried in a Muslim cemetery in the city, despite objections from the Islamic group that owns it.

Omar El-Hussein, 22, murdered two people last weekend following a bloody rampage through the Danish capital that ended when he was killed in a shootout with police.

The ceremony at the Islamic Society of Denmark was attended by approximately 500 mourners and sympathisers, before he was buried in a Muslim cemetery on the outskirts of the city.

The funeral was open to the public, but reports from the scene said it was mostly attended by young men, who were described as ‘wearing large black coats with many of them having covered their faces’.

After the burial, controversial Salafist Adnan Avdic – who had previously called El – posed for pictures at the the plot.

Untitled

I don’t know, but 500 people showing up to bury a terrorist sounds extreme to me. Maybe, as the old joke goes, they just wanted to make sure the son of a bitch was dead.

More on this Adnan Avdic character (in a Google translation of a Danish news story):

Adnan Avdic is known to be Salafist who represent a small fundamentalist minority of Danish Muslims want Sharia law introduced in Denmark. In 2005 he was accused of planning terrorist in the so-called Glostrup case, but the trial in 2007, he was acquitted.

After the massacre of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo said Adnan Avdic to the French television program “Le Petit Journal” and said among other things that France was responsible for the 12 deaths of innocent people. Because the country is behind the killing of innocent Muslims in Afghanistan.

Also the horrific terrorist attacks that rocked Copenhagen and Denmark at the weekend believes Adnan Avdic is our own fault.

“Why always a Muslim in the dock and take responsibility for the actions of others. No, we do not! We take no responsibility for this action. It is you who must take responsibility for violations of the Prophet Mohammed. It is you who have created this action, this terrorist, “came from Adnan Avdic.

How we created it?

“It is you who keep by violating the Prophet Mohammed. So is there anyone who react as they do. They will continue to be so, and so we must hope that some people get their act together and do not violate the Prophet Mohammed, then we Danes and Muslims can live in peace. For we Muslims and non-Muslims could live in peace, but these violations of the Prophet Mohammed have created hatred between Muslims and non-Muslims.”

Adnan Avdic said earlier this week that Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein was a hero for his actions. Friday he insisted that Denmark and the Danes are to blame for the terrorist attacks.

Are you saying that these acts of terrorism are our own fault?

“Yes, I do. Omar would never have thought in these courts, if it were not for these violations of the Prophet Mohammed. Why? Because while going for a draw, so it goes without saying. ”

But the people, Omar has killed, has not drawn the Prophet Muhammad?

“Have the children in Palestine done something? No not. So the people of Palestine have not done anything, but is killed anyway, “said Adnan Avdic, who demanded that ‘the West’ was to take responsibility for his actions in Palestine before he would discuss peace.

So, dry your tears, Denmark, and take responsibility for your actions in Palestine. Whatever they might be.

Avdic, a Bosnian with Danish citizenship, may be one man—but so was the murderer. And 500 showed up to see him off to paradise.

PS: An earlier incarnation:

“Recently Inger Støjberg from the party Venstre (Liberal Conservative) criticised Muslims who do not embrace Danish society’s laws and values – and told them to go home. The newspaper Ekstra Bladet organized a debate between Støjberg and the Islamist Adnan Avdic.

Avdic is Bosnian with Danish citizenship. Even before the debate started, complications emerged when Støjberg held out her hand to greet Avdic who refused. Instead, he handed Støjberg flowers and explained that he cannot shake her hand for religious reasons.

Avdic said that Støjberg’s criticism creates racism and terrorism, especially now during Ramadan, and Avdic drew parallels with Jyllands-Posten’s Muhammad cartoons. Something that upset Støjberg who said that Avdic’s statements was actually threats of terrorism.
Avdic then said to Støjberg that she will be punished in hell according to Allah.”

The Danish politician says Muslims who don’t want to be culturally Danish should move to where they might be more comfortable. The Muslim who doesn’t want to be culturally Danish says she’ll burn in hell. I’m sure they’ll come to an agreement.

Europe Furious That Netanyahu Wants Jews To Leave Europe

The very definition of chutzpah

The Metro is the free paper which is available in the tube, in London. Here’s the front page:

metro

Once again, a European Jewish community has been targeted by Islamist terrorism, this time in the Danish capital Copenhagen. For Metro, however, the story isn’t about 37-year-old Dan Uzan, murdered as he stood guard outside a synagogue.

No, it’s all about Benjamin Netanyahu and the opportunity to turn his call for European Jews to make Aliyah into the issue of the day. And splashed all over the front page no less.

And what about The Guardian? Simon Tisdall is the assistant editor and a foreign affairs columnist. His reaction to the Copenhagen terror attack reveals so much about the current trend of thought that still blames the victims for the terror.

Some choice excerpts:

The Copenhagen gunman may turn out to have a similar background [to those of the Paris terrorists], and likewise to have been a lone loose cannon. No terrorist group has claimed responsibility. But the febrile backdrop against which this individual’s crime took place is only too evident: a shooting war with Islamists across large swaths of the Muslim world, growing Islamophobia in western Europe, ever greater polarisation over Israel-Palestine – especially since last year’s Gaza conflict – and a linked rise in antisemitism. [See, it’s the Jew’s fault – Aggie]

To further buttress his willful blindness, Tisdall writes:

David Cameron and Barack Obama lined up on Sunday to defend these values [freedom of speech and religion]. They might be more usefully employed in acknowledging that many current problems can be traced back to the Anglo-American destabilisation of post-2003 Iraq and to the west’s connivance in the suppression of Arab spring pro-democracy uprisings.

But perhaps most insultingly, Tisdall concludes:

In the short term, calls for increased security for frightened Jewish communities, including in Britain, are wholly understandable. Muslim communities deserve similar consideration. [For what? Are they shooting themselves? – Aggie]

Admittedly, this is typical European appeasement and antisemitism, but the NY Times is no better:

When Aydin Soei, a sociologist in Denmark, met members of an inner-city gang in 2008, one teenage tough stood out as more intelligent than his peers, and more mercurial. He showed little interest in Islam, but a deep loathing for Denmark, the country where he was born and spent his entire life.

On Sunday, that former gang member, Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein, died in a gun battle with Danish police officers just a few hundred yards from his boyhood home in Norrebro, an immigrant area of the Danish capital. It was the final, bloody episode of a short and angry life that included street crime and macho violence and ended with a 15-hour explosion of militancy on the streets of Copenhagen.

As the authorities across Europe try to figure out how radical Islam turns a tiny but dangerous minority of young Muslims into terrorists, Mr. Soei, the sociologist, said that Mr. Hussein, 22, was an exemplar of a phenomenon of Europe’s urban neighborhoods, not a product of the teachings of the Quran or their distortions by militant preachers.

“This wasn’t an intellectual Islamist with a long beard,” Mr. Soei said. “This was a loser man from the ghetto who is very, very angry at Danish society.”

And more BS at the link. Many paragraphs in, they finally mention that his gang, called “Brothas” held a vigil outside the synagogue where he was shot, and shouted Allahu Akbar! But not to worry, they are just the poor ghetto kids of Europe.

Now, some of you are younger than BTL and I, and don’t recall the Leftie line of 2001, right after the 9/11 terror attacks. Then we were assured that terrorism was all about poverty, racism, etc. The Left gave it up slowly, as it became obvious that the 9/11 terrorists were well-to-do men, with educations, etc. Now it is back in style, apparently.

I don’t doubt that Europe is a fascist cesspool; we know that it is. But terrorism is just a technique and all sorts of people can play. In today’s world, most of them are radical Muslims. Another way to say this is that instead of dealing drugs or mugging old ladies, radical Muslims prefer shooting Jews and beheading Christians.

Clueless

Obama didn’t cavort with the hot Danish chick at Nelson Mandela’s funeral just for her legs alone. (Though Michelle looked pretty frosty!)

He loves her for her mind too:

Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt urged citizens to maintain a balanced perspective on what had happened before the police’s findings were released.

“We don’t know the motive for the attacks but we know that there are forces that want to harm Denmark, that want to crush our freedom of expression, our belief in liberty,” she said.

You don’t know the motive? How about you, Aggie, do you know the motive? I think I do.

The Copenhagen shooter first attacked a panel discussion on Saturday evening, where Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks – the man behind a controversial depiction of the Prophet Muhammad which sparked protests in 2007 – was in attendance.

The same man is alleged to have then shot dead a Jewish man at the city’s main synagogue in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police shot and killed the main suspect near his apartment building in the Noerrebro district several hours later, after cordoning off parts of the city and evacuating the nearby train station.

“We are not facing a fight between Islam and the West, it is not a fight between Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Thorning-Schmidt.

When did TOTUS fly off to Copenhagen? That wasn’t Victor Borge shooting all those people—sorry, folks—and he wasn’t aiming at Hans Christian Anderson. Don’t the victims, intended and actual, give you a clue, Ms. Leggy-Blond? A Mohammed cartoonist and a synagogue full of Jewish folks. If that’s not “a fight between Islam and the West […] a fight between Muslims and non-Muslims”, what the hell is it?

Nearly 80% of Danes are Lutheran, if only nominally so. Only three percent are Muslim. But who do you think will be driving the No. 109 crosstown bus to sharia? The “liberty” you say you believe in has shrunk just a little bit. Last word to Mark Steyn:

The more Islamic a society gets, the less free speech it has – the less intellectual inquiry, artistic achievement, contrarian spirit. Most western Muslims are not willing themselves to open fire on synagogues or Lars Vilks, but they help maintain the shriveled definition of acceptable expression that helps license the fanatics of Copenhagen and Paris. Muslims in Europe, North America and Australia will pay lip service to “free speech”, and then promptly re-define it as excluding speech that “blasphemes” or “insults” their faith – which is to say them.

And They Just Released The Name Of The Danish Terrorist… Gunner Gunnerson! Not.

His name is Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein and he’s Lutheran.

BERLIN – The specter of lethal anti-Semitism has once again engulfed Europe, with the latest murder of the Danish Jew Dan Uzan who was guarding the Copenhagen synagogue. His death along with another Dutch civilian has been attributed to a Danish terrorist Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein believed to have been animated by radical Islam.

To understand the continuation of violent anti-Semitism, the German philosopher Theodor W. Adorno said in post-Holocaust Europe, “We will not have come to terms with the past until the causes of what happened then are no longer active. Only because these causes live on does the spell of the past remain, to this very day, unbroken.”

What has filled the vacuum since Europe has relegated Nazism to a largely meaningless status, is the rise of Islamic-animated anti-Semitism enabled by an indifferent mainstream public coupled with an aggressive European Left. Anti-Jewish forces have turned Israel into a human punching bag.

Yep. And that is why we have to refuse to visit Europe (and I was guilty last year, but won’t be repeating the error), refuse to buy their products, discuss this with others, and firmly challenge Israel-bashing when it rears its ugly head. This includes during social engagements. We must let friends know that we’ve had enough.

Here’s some examples from modern Europe:

A telling example came from Austria on Tuesday. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in Linz declared a Turkish man’s call to annihilate the Jewish state and kill Jews merely an expression of “displeasure with Israel.”
In early February, a German court in Wuppertal agreed with the explanation offered by three Palestinians that their torching of the local synagogue was a form of protest against Israel’s Operation Protective Edge to stop Hamas rocket fire. The men received a penalty of 200 hours community service.

Try torching a mosque and see what the penalty will be.

A bit more:

Denmark falls into the top four EU countries in terms of jihadist output for the Syrian war theater. In July, Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail, a Danish imam called for the extermination of the Jews at Berlin’s al-Nur mosque in July.

Ismail said it was necessary to “destroy the Zionist Jews…” and to “count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one of them…. Make them suffer terribly.” He returned to Denmark to continue to preach.

While controversy in Europe surrounds Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks about encouraging Danish Jews to immigrate, Steinberg offered a historical perspective.

“From the time of Herzl, one of the core principles of Zionism is that in order to defend our rights and our lives, Jews must be have sovereignty and self-determination. There are of course other reasons for making aliya, but if Jewish lives cannot be protected in Europe, Israel provides a haven. On this, there is no difference between Likud and Labor; between Netanyahu and [Isaac] Herzog,” he said.

I think that those of us who do not make Aliyah can simply boycott Europe. It is nuts for Jews to drive Mercedes, drink French wine, eat Holland peppers, vacation anywhere on the continent. If we were serious and vocal about this, perhaps their governments might locate their balls.

The Holocaust: When a Bunch of Zealots Randomly Gassed a Bunch of Folks

So, it was just bad luck—is that the regime’s story?

Since US President Barack Obama’s controversial comments during a recent interview, in which he downplayed the anti-Semitic nature of the deadly shooting attack at a kosher supermarket in Paris last month, government spokespeople have been falling over themselves to explain what exactly he meant. And failing pretty miserably.

In the interview with Vox, published earlier this week, the US President asserted that the media was “overstating” the threat from terrorism to garner ratings, but admitted terrorism was still a problem. In so doing, however, he provoked a storm of controversy with the following comment: “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”

First, White House official spokesman Josh Earnest made a valiant but cringeworthy attempt to tidy up after the President, justifying Obama’s claim that climate change was more dangerous than terrorism, as well as attempting to explain how ISIS terrorist Amedy Coulibaly was simply “shooting random folks” without paying any attention to their background at the Hyper Cacher store.

“Folks”. You know this whole rotten bunch is passing gas in your face when they start talking about “folks”. Is that in the White House style manual?

Later Tuesday evening it was the turn of State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who similarly struggled to rationalize Obama’s strange comments.

Associated Press journalist Matt Lee began the exchange, asking: “Does the administration really believe that the victims of this attack were not singled out because they were of a particular faith?”

Psaki’s response to the straightforward question was perhaps even more evasive than Earnest’s.

Psaki: “Well, as you know… I believe… if I remember the victims specifically, they were not all victims of one background or one nationality so I think what they mean by that is… I don’t know if they spoke to the targeting of the grocery store… but (rather) the individuals who were impacted.”

If you enjoyed that, you probably like watching dog fights. That was brutal.

And it wouldn’t stop:

When Lee pointed out that Secretary of State John Kerry’s own actions, by meeting specifically with members of the Jewish community to pay condolences after the attack, suggested otherwise, Psaki struggled to formulate a coherent response.

Psaki: “Naturally given that is… the grocery store is one that, uh…”

Lee: “But don’t you think the store itself was a target?”

Psaki: “That’s different from the victims being…”

Lee: “Does the administration believe that this was an anti-Jewish… an attack on the Jewish community in France?”

Psaki: “I don’t think we’re going to speak on behalf of French authorities and what they believe was the situation at play here…”

Lee: “But if a guy goes into a kosher market and starts shooting it up, he’s not looking for Buddhists is he?

“Who does the administration expect shops at a kosher (store)…? An attacker going into a store that is clearly identified with one specific faith – I’m not sure I can understand how it is that you can’t say that this was a targeted attack!”

Psaki: “I don’t have more for you Matt, it’s an issue for the French government to address.”

What’s going on here? Are they just covering up for another imbecilic thing their boss said? Or is it worse? Do they hate Israel (apparently) and Netanyahu (absolutely) so much that they would deny a narrative that makes Jews sympathetic?

What exactly did he say again?

It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris,” Obama said.

What did I tell you about “folks”?

This is the administration’s story, and they’re sticking to it. A bunch of “zealots” “randomly” shot a bunch of “folks”. We don’t have to hold it up to ridicule: it ridicules itself. I almost feel sorry for Jen Psaki for being pimped out like that.

But I soon get over it. At least she called them victims and not folks.
