Following this afternoon's murderous assault at a "discussion" on free speech in Copenhagen, there was a second attack this evening at a synagogue in the city near Krystalgade Street. One person has been shot in the head* and another two injured.
Say, wait a minute: an attack on a "bunch" of artists and writers, followed by an attack on a "bunch" of Jews? Didn't we run this story last month?
Why, yes, we did. But don't worry, that was Paris. Whereas this time it's Copenhagen. Two entirely separate cities. So, like President Obama says, it's all just entirely "random". "Bunches" here, "bunches" there, but they're all just random bunches of random folks.
If I were Jen Psaki or Josh Earnest, I would need to hose myself down every evening after peddling that much sewage all day long.
By shutting down debate on why these victims, why these perpetrators, and keeping it all nice and random, the President is objectively advancing the interests of the other side - whose modus operandi is also to shut down debate, albeit more murderously. My thoughts and prayers are with my friends in Copenhagen this evening.
*UPDATE: The man shot in the head has died.
But fortunately the leader of the free world is on top of things:
President Obama is in Palm Springs for the weekend and was on the golf course as the day's events unfolded.
