AT The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, a Sudden Jihadist Syndrome guy shot up the place, killing one, injuring 5.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seattle_Jewish_Federation_shooting

Naveed Afzal Haq, had selected his target by researching “something Jewish” on the Internet.

Police believe Haq entered the lobby of the building and grabbed the 14-year-old niece of Federation employee Cheryl Stumbo. Haq allegedly held a gun to the girl’s back and forced her to use the intercom in order to gain entry to the Federation’s offices.[3][4]

With a gun to her back, Haq reportedly told the girl, “Open the door,” and “careful”, as she was buzzed into the building. Haq then said, “I’m only doing this for a statement,” and proceeded to follow the girl up the stairs to the second floor. Haq stopped to ask receptionist Layla Bush about speaking with a manager, at which point the girl walked to a bathroom and locked herself inside. At this point, Cheryl Stumbo asked fellow employee Carol Goldman to call 911. But, before Goldman could complete a call, Haq shot her in the knee.[5] Her niece, in the bathroom, heard her and dialed 911.

Witnesses reported that Haq began shouting “I’m a Muslim American; I’m angry at Israel” before he began his shooting spree.

According to the Obama administration, Ft. Hood was ‘workplace violence’ not terrorism since it couldn’t be spun in favor of the Rat agenda.

Fort Hood was just common everyday work place violence. Nothing to see here. Move along. Benghazi? What’s that? Just disgruntled movie goers that didn’t like the movie despite siskel and ebert giving it 2 thumbs up.

On Nov 5, 2009 Major Nidal Hasan killed 13 of my brothers in arms and wounded another 32. As of this date, he has still not been brought to trial. Is this what President Obama means by his statement: “Make no mistake, we’ll get to the bottom of this and the full weight of justice will be felt?”
Three people were killed in the Boston Marathon bombings and the President’s Administration is calling it a terrorist attack. Hasan killed 13 in his attack and yet Holder and the President refuse to call it a terrorist attack even though he was yelling “Allah Akbar” as he murdered fellow soldiers. How can this be when 9 of Hasan’s superior officers face military punishment for not taking action against Hasan’s “Islamist Extremeism” prior to the shootings?
Hasan has been drawing his full pay for over three years now and yet he was allowed to wear a full beard at his hearings. So far, there has been no justice for Benghazi victims, Fast and Furious victims, Hasan’s victims, and numerous other similar attacks. Wake up America, before it’s too late!

It is surprising that Obama hasn’t called the Boston bombing an act of “sporting event violence”.

Left out all the Puerto Ricans running around New York blowing up things in the 70’s. Puerto Ricans still have done more terrorist activity in the US than any other group or organization since Reconstruction.

Actually, the official story is that Fort Hood was “workplace violence”. The govt chooses to ignore his contact with known terrorists, and his militant Islamist statements and focus on their assertion that he’s not mentally stable. The injured soldiers are not getting purple hearts. I’ve even seen Major Hasan listed as a representative of the group “white guys who shoot folks”.

Political Correctness:

”A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

By spreading this definition around, perhaps we can employ one of the more effective methods of deflating and defeating the fools who practice and promote it: RIDICULE.

Unless stopped – and soon – PC will DESTROY Western Civilization -- if it hasn’t already.

PASS IT ON!!

THEN PASS THE KOOL AID!!

Heard the same thing on local CBS affiliate yesterday and the first thing I thought of was Fort Hood. Of course they called that workplace violence and that became the official narrative from then on.

Move along, nothing to see here...

FT Hood work place
Fast and furious, what’s that a movie.
Libya, oh just some muslims who staged a demo because of a video, no need to do anything, as he went to bed, to sleep and then of to vegas.
Boston, nah no need right now to jump to conclusions we won’t call it terrorism.

Yet he seemed to jump to conclusion of his black pal being arrested in MA and called the police stupid

Why hasn't Resident Obama demanded Janet Napolitano's resignation?

Napolitano spends her time demonizing Christians, military vets and gun owners while our trillion dollar Dept. of Homeland Security was outsmarted by one or two scruffy evildoers armed with $20 cook pots.

The 2009 Little Rock recruiting office shooting took place on June 1, 2009, when the American Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, born Carlos Leon Bledsoe, opened fire with a rifle in a drive-by shooting on soldiers in front of a United States military recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas. He killed Private William Long, and wounded Private Quinton Ezeagwula. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_Little_Rock_recruiting_office_shooting

I think he’s still hoping it can be blamed on the Republicans. If it turns out to be muzzies responsible, THEN it will be downgraded.

How many police, ATF, FBI, Homeland Security, and other law enforcement personnel were on duty yesterday at the Boston Marathon? What in the hell were they watching? None of them were watching the trash cans? None of them saw a Saudi lugging around duffle bags large enough to hold multiple pressure cookers? Were they only looking at white guys who might be Tea Party members? Why in the hell were there trash cans in close proximity to the marathon route? Somebody dropped the ball here and Napolitano should take full responsibility for this inept security breach.

What’s sick is half of the American people will agree with anything obama says. In fact, most of them don’t have an oppinion until they hear their leader speak? The people who voted for obama and still support him remind me of the North Korean people fawning all over Kim. But, they don’t have a choice. Americans do it willingly.

Fort Hood was “workplace violence” and just proves the need to confiscate all the guns. Boston Marathon will soon be officially dubbed “race hate violence” that proves the need to confiscate all the guns.

“Well, I would have said 14. One of the women was pregnant.”

I have always found it fascinating that babies can be aborted in the womb and in Gosnell’s case out of the womb and no charges are filed for murder. But if someone kills a pregnant woman, they charge the perp with two counts of murder. Just doesn’t make sense does it?

We see that civilian police work is winning the War On Terror, and there’s no need for real soldiers to fight any real war. [Little irony and sarcasm there.]

Yes. Here in Florida if you run over a pregnant woman you can be charged with TWO COUNTS of vehicular homicide. Inconsistent, to put it mildly.
