Former NYPD cop and frequent Fox News contributor, Bo Dietl was commenting on the then-active Planned Parenthood terrorist attack. Dietl decided to take that opportunity to bash President Obama, here’s what he said:
“Again, this is our president acting like a fool. I mean to see something like this, we noticed when the attacks occurred in Paris, when the cops were in their car getting attacked, we have to prepare ourselves. This is a war. We’re against… terrorists are against this country.
It’s going to open up here in America, and we’ve got to be prepared. And we’ve also got to start training all our officers in the use of high powered equipment. We’re dealing with bad people. Our little 9 millimeters are not going to do anything against somebody with an AK-47. [unintelligible—moreso] This is an attack on us; it’s going to be for the next generation. We have to deal with it. We have to prepare ourselves for the worst, and pray that the worst don’t happen.”
The suspect in the attack is a 59-year-old white American-born male named Robert Lewis Dear. Dear is a Colorado resident and in the city of Colorado Springs, open carry is perfectly legal. So Dear decided to walk into a Planned Parenthood clinic with an AK-47 and start killing people. Dear has a history of mental illness, including torturing small animals. It seems that the “good guy with a gun” fantasy didn’t quite play out the way the neocon mafia also known as the National Rifle Association likes to promote.
Earlier this week Dallas, Texas Mayor Mike Rawlins said this:
“I am more fearful of large gatherings of white men that come into schools, theaters and shoot people up, but we don’t isolate young white men on this issue.”
And once again we see another example of domestic terrorism being downplayed by conservative media outlets like Fox News. Guess it’s just easier for Fox News viewers to pretend that bloodthirsty psychopaths, who are highly unlikely to even set foot on American soil, will come over and start a “holy war,” than to face the fact that you’re more likely to be killed by a homegrown terrorist who looks just like their next door neighbor.
