I was driving back to Castle Borepatch, listening to the rush hour traffic/news/talk. The news, as you would imagine, was about the attack at Ohio State. While the story did not include the words "radical" "islam", "jihad", or "terror", it did tell us that some Somali immigrant drove a truck into a crowd of students and then stabbed a bunch of them before finding himself on the naughty end of a police officer's gun.
The story was very careful to say that we don't know the attacker's motivation, and so speculation is presumably double plus ungood.
Then the story launched into a discussion of the Virginia Tech shootings.
The story did not talk about the attack in Nice, France a few months back. You know, the one where some dude drove a truck into a crowd and then stabbed some of them before getting shot. That seemingly is not at all similar to the OSU attack. But the Virgina Tech incident seemingly is similar, at least similar enough to be included as a "hey, doesn't this remind you" comparison.
Never mind that the Virginia Tech incident did not have an immigrant as the perpetrator, did not include a truck running people down, or a finale of shabby-stabby.
If you were as nasty and cynical about the Press as I am, you might think this was used to distract people from "dangerous jihadi immigrants are killing people" to "guns are bad, mkay?"
But since you're obviously not as nasty and cynical about the Press as I, this sort of Thought Crime clearly would never cross your mind.
