Wow. I honestly thought that Obama misspoke when he described the shooting at the Paris Kosher Deli days after the Charlie Hebdo slaughter, as a “random attack.”
Here’s what he said in his interview with the Obama subservient lapdog outlet, “Vox.”
“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.
Whoops, right? This was not “random violence” any more than the Fort Hood shooting was “workplace violence.” The attack was clearly anti-Semitic and it reignited age-old fears about Jews being targeted in France and in Europe.
Obviously Obama meant to say it was an anti-semitic attack on a Kosher Deli – but speaking off the cuff – he muffed his words up a little. It happens to everyone.
It appears that the Regime has decided that – for whatever reason – they are going to play down the anti-semitic angle of that Kosher Deli shooting. They’re going to keep calling it a “random attack” – —
Poor Josh Earnest and Jen Psaki. They soldier on day after day – forced to swallow their pride and recite these absurd talking points.
JON KARL: “This was an attack on a KOSHER Deli. Does the president have ANY doubt that those terrorists attacked that deli because there would be JEWS in that Deli?”
JOSH EARNEST: …The adverb that the president chose was used to indicate that the individuals that were killed in that terrible tragic incident, were killed, not because of who they were – but because of where they randomly happened to be.
Seriously, that’s what they’re going with. Even though Obama said vicious zealots were randomly shooting “a bunch of folks”, they’re saying he meant that the victims were “random” because they weren’t all Jews. Even though the Kosher deli was obviously chosen by the Jew-hating terrorists because they wanted to kill some Jews at a Jewish deli.
It’s like saying that the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center wasn’t an attack on America because there were people from all over the world in those buildings – making it a “random attack on a bunch of folks.”
So, while you’re trying to figure out if A. this is just a case of immature leftists refusing to admit that Obama misspoke, or B. (much worse) immature leftists not wanting to admit that Jews were the intended victims in the Kosher deli terrorist attack – (because they’re pushing a pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel agenda and this doesn’t fit their narrative of Jews always being the bad guy?) here’s State Dept. Spox Jen Psaki with the same exact moronic talking points.
Asked if the attack was really random, Psaki said, “They were not all victims of one background or one nationality, so I think what they mean by that is, I don’t know that they spoke to the targeting of a grocery store.”
The AP’s Matt Lee asked her whether it was an “anti-Jewish attack” and who does the White House think would be in a kosher market? Psaki waffled and punted the question to the French government, like it’s their call. The French government, of course, has been unequivocal in describing the Kosher Deli shooting as an anti-Semitic attack.
What more – another State Department spokesperson last month, said, “We condemn in the strongest terms yesterday’s cowardly anti-Semitic assault against the innocent people in the kosher supermarket.”
They’re not allowed to say that, anymore, apparently.
