Reality ruins the liberal narrative again.
Actor Samuel L. Jackson let a little too much information slip in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter. He was speaking to them about his new film The Hateful Eight but the conversation turned to current events.
On the subject of the San Bernardino terror attack, Jackson had a different culprit in mind.
P.J. Gladnick reports at NewsBusters (emphasis is his):
Samuel L. Jackson on San Bernardino Shooters: Disappointed It Wasn’t ‘Crazy White Dude’
Rush Limbaugh has stated several times that the assassination of John F. Kennedy ushered in the era of modern liberalism. Liberals back then just couldn’t handle the fact that the assassin was Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist who lived for awhile in the Soviet Union. So they attempted to blame America and the “rightwing” for Kennedy’s assassination.
In the current update of that attitude, liberals hate to see radical Muslims blamed for acts of terrorism. The prefer and wish for such acts to have been committed by somebody they can associate with conservatives. The latest example of this is Samuel L. Jackson who flat out expresses his disappointment in The Hollywood Reporter that the culprit in the San Bernardino shootings wasn’t “some crazy white dude” rather than who it really was, a radical Muslim couple.
Jackson says he empathizes with innocent Muslim-Americans who have fallen under the veil of suspicion because a few other people who share their religion have committed atrocities against their countrymen: “When that thing happened in France, we were sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God, these terrorists!’ And I can’t even tell you how much that day the thing that happened in San Bernardino — I was in Hawaii — how much I really wanted that to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims, because it’s like: ‘Oh, shit. It’s here. And it’s here in another kind of way.
Of course, Jackson is just one example of a phenomenon that’s common for many progressives who openly hope the same thing after every shooting or terror attack.
Jackson has also apparently also adopted the progressive position on Islamophobia in America.
The Daily Mail reports:
‘Muslims are the new black men’: Samuel L. Jackson empathizes with Muslim Americans and says he had hoped San Bernardino attacks were carried out by some ‘crazy white dude’ when he first heard of shootings
Samuel L Jackson has claimed that Muslims are the new blacks of America because of how they are being persecuted.
The Pulp Fiction star, 67, said that the recent Islamist attacks in Paris and California meant that people saw it as a ‘legitimate reason’ to fear Muslims.
He said that he had hoped the California attacks were carried out by some ‘crazy white dude’ because they had damaged the perception of Muslims.
Syed Rizwan Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik killed 14 people and injured 21 others after they opened fire at the Inland Regional Center social services agency, where Farook worked.
Jackson spoke out as high profile incidents of Muslims being targeted in the US and the UK made headlines this month.
This tweet from Jon Gabriel never gets old.
My favorite part about the Obama era is all the racial healing.
