Late today, an army major, apparently disturbed by stories of the war abroad, murdered twelve of his comrades at Fort Hood. The man had a Arabic-sounding name, but stated “no religious preference” on his military paperwork. I’m sure you know what’s coming next:
As the sun set tonight, tragedy came to Ft. Hood. A muslim [sic] soldier began shooting other soldiers.
What we know so far is that the soldier was a muslim [sic] and began yelling at his fellow soldiers statements in Arabic.
Leave it to RedState to support our troops — by twisting their deaths for unrelated political gain.
Update: apparently he was Muslim. This changes nothing. His religion wasn’t relevant to the crime, except to permit pundits from Erickson to Malkin to blame his religion and Muslims generally.
