It’s not exactly “breaking news” to say that our media has become really bad or flat-out awful at times. Listening to some of these so-called “analysts” try to break down what happened yesterday as events continued to unfold was a test of my patience and sanity. Even though for much of the day no one knew a thing about what happened, why it happened or how many people even carried out this heinous act, these “analysts” and reporters were basically just guessing for the sake of saying something.
I can’t even count the number of false reports I heard based on hearsay and other nonsense that were suggested as being factual, all for the sake of giving these “news” people something to discuss.
Ultimately, almost everything they had been saying or suggesting throughout the day was wrong.
Well, the speculation still hasn’t stopped, and Fox News analyst Peter Johnson Jr. made a fool out of himself discussing the massacre.
“There are cardinal characteristics, cardinal fingerprints of terrorism,” Johnson stated. “Is this a typical workplace violence attack or is this a Jihadi Jane and Joe?”
Johnson then went on a rant about the “political implications” of this for the Obama administration, throwing out all sorts unfounded nonsense about this potentially being a new form of “green card” terror (since the female was a Saudi) or a member of ISIS in the United States. He was essentially trying to suggest that this is going to somehow be President Obama’s fault – which is to be expected from Fox News.
But then he really showed off his stupidity.
“I don’t want to come to any hasty conclusions at the point,” he continued, “but if you look at the dots, if you start to connect them in a way that’s rational and reasonable, and not political, based on simple things we know about terrorism, simple things we know about criminal justice then it leads inescapably to that one horrible conclusion: terror. Is it based on politics? Is it based on religion? Is it based on hate? Is it a literal war on Christmas?”
Keep in mind, this guy is an “analyst” spewing this sort of idiocy.
First, there aren’t really any “dots” as no one at this point has any idea why these two did what they did. Aside from where it happened, where he worked and their names and sources saying the male had been “radicalized” (which still doesn’t provide a motive for why he chose this moment and location)… there’s not a whole lot out there (yet) that has led anyone to any factually based conclusions as to why a married couple with a 6-month-old infant would do this.
But to even suggest this was about a “literal war on Christmas” is easily the dumbest comment I’ve heard about this slaughter. Then again, this is Fox News – proving once again that they’ll find any reason, and I mean any reason, to promote their made-up annual “war on Christmas” nonsense.
