How the Left Sees Islamic Terrorism

This is a glimpse into a parallel universe, i.e., MSNBC. The MSNBC host, the appalling Melissa Harris-Perry, explains that Islamic terrorists are nowhere near as bad as the police, “right wing” terrorists–all murderers who are not Muslims are presumed “right wing”–and so on. Her guest adds that it is extraordinary how few Islamic terrorists there are. The clip is under two minutes long, and well worth your time:

People often wonder how the Obama administration can be so out of touch when it comes to terrorism. The president’s reaction to the San Bernardino attack was typical. He is giving a speech from the Oval Office tonight, no doubt because the Democrats’ polling shows an overwhelmingly negative response to the president’s mealy-mouthed comments on San Bernardino. But how can Obama and his minions be so clueless in the first place?

I think part of the answer is that they consort just about exclusively with people like Melissa Harris-Perry and others who appear on MSNBC. This is the left-wing water they swim in. I don’t think they fully appreciate how far out of the mainstream such people are.
