Aftermath of NYC Attack Demonstrates the Left's Insanity
On Halloween, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov tore through downtown Manhattan in a rental truck, striking at least nineteen people and killing eight, two of whom were children. It was the deadliest terror attack in New York since 9/11.
Instead of uniting as Americans did after the World Trade Center attacks of 2001, leftists immediately set to work politicizing the event.
Shortly after crashing his vehicle into a school bus, Saipov got out and began waving two firearms. It was later determined that the firearms were not real, but rather a pellet gun and a paintball gun. Leftists took the opportunity to praise gun control:
Witnesses report hearing Saipov crying out "Allahu Akbar" during his rampage. Leftist news media took the opportunity to tell us it simply meant "God is Great." The Daily Wire tells us the real meaning behind the phrase:
Originally from Uzbekistan, Saipov entered the country in 2010, thanks to the Diversity Visa Lottery program. President Trump blasted the program and called for its end, demanding that entry to the U.S. be "merit based."
You may recall President Trump's so-called 'Muslim ban,' which was slammed by the left as "islamophobic." Uzbekistan happens to have a 79% Muslim population and is not one of the countries listed in the ban, intended to tamp down on people exactly like Saipov.
The Daily Wire reports that Saipov may have used his green card to get at least 23 other individuals entry into the U.S.
There is a special place in hell reserved for Saipov, just below that of the one reserved for those that would use his attack for their own evil policies.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
