With the exception of that Carolina guy, who is of no religion, the “religious” violence in seven different countries was all perpetrated by adherents of one particular religion. But CNN can’t say that, so its only way of covering this trend is to tut about all this – what’s the word? – random religious fervor getting everyone all randomly fired up. (…)
Like thousands of other Islamic State volunteers from the western world, like the Copenhagen killer (a graduate of a fast-track high school) and the Ottawa killer (the son of a super-senior Canadian bureaucrat), these guys had all the “job opportunities” they could dream of in the most advanced economies on earth – and they gave it all up to go head-chopping. Because they found jihad – whoops, sorry, “religion” – more appealing than being the sort of fey western metrosexual eunuch who hung around Marie Harf in college.
