“Let’s turn back the clock to last summer and let’s remember the debate that’s been taking place since then. We’ve seen protests here in New York outside the Park 51 complex, saying that Islam is coming to take over America and that [the mosque] can’t be built . . . you had individuals showing up at political rallies in Arizona carrying assault rifles. Look, I mean, it’s not that much of a jump from that to this [bombing in Norway].”
Mediate’s Matt Schneider adds:
Yes, that’s right, according to this expert on terrorism, attending protests and rallies is not “much of a jump” away from the unthinkable massacre caused by Breivik. Sometimes such lunacy isn’t worth highlighting and responding to, yet in this ping-pong match between Kohlmann and Bashir, it just keeps getting “better.” Kohlmann suggests in Republican presidential debates “Muslims are being treated like they’re some kind of evil virus” and Bashir concludes this incident in Norway reminds us that we “should be careful about what we say at political rallies.”
