CNN has bit of a a bias problem — anyone who has watched the network in the Trump era can attest to that — but Jake Tapper just went WAY further than anyone before him.
Tapper’s comment wasn’t just liberal. It was INSANE.
In the aftermath of the terrorist attack in New York Tuesday morning, Tapper PRAISED the phrase “allahu Akbar.”
This wasn’t just poor timing, either. He LITERALLY said it in response to the truck attack that left at least six dead.
“The Arabic chant ‘Allahu Akbar,’ God is great — sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances,” the host began “and too often we hear of it being said in moments like this.”
As an American, in what context has Tapper heard “allahu Akbar” in moments of beauty? How often has he reported on that phrase separate from a terrorist attack?
The answer to that second question is probabaly never. Tapper is just using this moment to try and protect the Muslim community. The left refuse to acknowledge the religion’s deeply troubling toes to radical extremism, so they spout idiotic and insensitive garbage such as this.
Maybe Tapper is right in theory — but why now? Why do the left refuse to condemn radical Islamic extremism without qualification?
This isn’t a time to find “beauty.” We must find the PROBLEM and identify it.
Comment “shame on Tapper” SHARE if you think Tapper’s comments were inappropriate.
We need to get TOUGH on terror, not try to find beauty in it.
