If you listened or watched coverage of the terror attack in London yesterday, you couldn't help but hear the usual suspect talking heads bending over backwards to omit the thought that was on everyone's minds: Was it another attack by an Islamifascist? As it turns out, the attacker, Khalid Masood, has been claimed as a soldier of the Islamic State. Imagine that.
Through it all I couldn't help but wonder something. What do you think the odds were in Las Vegas, before the attacker was identified, that he was an Islamist? Where the mainstream media wasn't brave enough to suppose the question, Vegas odds makers are not, how shall we say, politically correct; they adhere to the laws of probability.
What do you think those odds were? Common sense mandates that the odds were pretty good that the attacker - a man who used the exact modus operandi as prescribed by the Islamic State to wage murderous terror attacks against innocents - was an Islamofascist waging jihad in the name of Allah to conquer the world so that Islam could reign supreme.
But the laws of probability don't affect political correctness or the morally relative, multicultural Progressives who insist that ideological extremes - blind to reality - trump said laws. In this singular instance we witness enough proof that Progressives are both delusional and detached from reality.
And those types of people should never be allowed to ascend to seats of power.
