The NY Times Thinks: Only Moslems Should Be Allowed To Kill The Innocent...

After the horrific shooting spree, the editorial board of New York Times offered a voice of reasoned circumspection: "In the aftermath of this unforgivable attack, it will be important to avoid drawing prejudicial conclusions . . .," the paper counseled.

Here's how the sentence continued: ". . . from the fact that Major Hasan is an American Muslim whose parents came from the Middle East."

The Tucson Safeway massacre prompted exactly the opposite reaction. What was once known as the paper of record egged on its readers to draw invidious conclusions that are not only prejudicial but contrary to fact. In doing so, the Times has crossed a moral line."

Crossed, re-crossed, and double-crossed. But that's okay; really it is. There ARE times when we forget who the real enemy happens to be. When, during a lull in the fighting, we forget how truly insidious liberals are. How they'll climb, tooth and nail, atop a heap of still twitching bodies to make an incorrect assumption that just might persuade Ma & Pa Kettle over to their side.

I'm glad James Taranto reads the Times so I don't have to. I despise him for providing them even one reader, hardcopied or virtual, but just like outhouse cleaners, somebody's gotta do it.

All Taranto (or any honest reader of the NYSlimes with any schred of moral decency) can do is offer a slightly less toxic, redacted version of the toxic sludge as a public service to the unwitting to avoid reading a toxic turd at the breakfast table.

And I cannot believe I typed "schred". *heh*
