We all know the leftist media will stop at nothing to shield Muslims from criticism, even when Muslims kill mass amounts of people in the name of Islam, but the way the media is covering the attack in Nice is absolutely unreal.
Within minutes of the attack that killed 84 and injured over a hundred more in France, the French authorities were pointing their fingers at terrorism and radical Islam as a possible motive. After all, a man named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drive a semi-truck through a crowd of people then jumped out with a gun and started shooting, so it stands to reason that perhaps he was motivated by radical Islamic beliefs; however, you wouldn’t know that by reading left-stream American media.
No, instead they’re doing everything within their power to conceal the fact that old Mohamed was likely radicalized and attacked due to his allegiance to some sort of terror group, likely ISIS.
A headline from CBC reads, “Children feared killed in Nice as truck attacks family event,” which is obviously blaming the truck rather than the terrorist driving it. But if you think that’s bad, you should read what CNN had.
“Truck rams crowd; 84 dead in Nice,” the left-wing outlet reported. Once again, the evil ideology of the man driving was conveniently omitted so that those unaware wouldn’t be tipped off that perhaps he held the same extremist views as the shooter in Orlando, Omar Mateen.
Then there’s USAToday, who did mention Mohamed’s name and that he was from Tunisia — the nation that produces more ISIS supporters than any other — but said he was a “father of three whose marriage may have broken down,” and didn’t even mention that he started shooting people when he got out of the truck. Instead, the outlet reported, he “was killed by police as he attempted to flee the truck.”
Finally, we have the New York Times – a known leftist rag that’s light on facts and heavy on partisan rhetoric. Their headline read, “Truck attack on French crowd; Scores die,” once again overlooking what’s probably the most important piece of this puzzle – the ideology that drove this man to commit mass murder.
Oh, and then there’s this little gem from the Times. They were really, really fast to point out that the first victim was a Muslim woman, but guess what? Still not a word about the attacker’s religion, ideology, or anything of the sort.
Given that these media outlets seem to believe that the truck was to blame – not the radical ideology the man driving it held – perhaps the French would be wise to follow Barack Obama’s lead and ban such deadly assault trucks. You know, any truck capable of killing large numbers of people in a short amount of time with one press of the gas pedal.
