Remember Molly Norris!

Yesterday I had friends over and did not go to my laptop until rather late in the day when I discovered this was going on:

 Colleyville, TX synagogue held hostage during livestreamed service; police negotiating with man. “A source on the scene told ABC News that an armed suspect took a rabbi and three others hostage and claims to have bombs in unknown locations. 

A little more:

An apparently armed man took a rabbi and his congregants hostage at a Texas synagogue Saturday, demanding US authorities release a convicted terrorist known as “Lady al-Qaeda” — and phoning a New York City rabbi in a bizarre bid for help, according to sources and reports.

So an armed man takes Jewish Hostages in a synagogue on the Sabbath and demands the release of an Al-Qaeda terrorist. Guess what the first reaction of the usual suspects was:

Because Islam of course is the victim here

News organizations played along with this business in their headlines with the BBC putting hostage in quotes and the telegraph describing the hostage taker in their lead as a: “man with English accent”

Maybe is was Cary Elwes

And the AP jumped right on the “Nothing to do with Islamic Terrorism vs Jews” with the help of an FBI whose capacity to throw what little credibility they still have left out the window has not yet reached its full potential.

Now I’m going to be there were a lot of other possible targets in a place as large as Texas that could have been targeted but he managed to find a Jewish Synagogue in the state for his crime.

Perhaps he figured that based on voting patterns in America it was the target in the state least likely to be populated by armed civilians.

But anyways it’s all over. The hostages have been freed the terrorist is dead and the Al Qaeda member in jail is still in jail (at least until her supporters discover the joys and investment potential of Hunter Biden’s artwork) and the story is done.

And when I say “done” I mean it? Why? Because of DaTechGuy’s 3rd law of Media Outrage:

The MSM’s elevation and continued classification of any story as Nationally Newsworthy rather than only of local interest is in direct correlation to said story’s current ability to affirm any current Democrat/Liberal/Media meme/talking point, particularly on the subject of race or sexuality.

If the hostage taker had been a Trump supporter or in DC on January 6th or had expressed a desire for Ron DeSantis in Florida or even had suggested that there had been the slightest possibility of fraud in the last election rest assured you would be able to find stories concerning this attack for days and weeks to come so if you were engrossed in the NFL’s wild card weekend you could catch up in a hurry once the games were done.

Alas it was an Islamist, targeting a Jewish Synagogue on the the Jewish Sabbath to release a member of Al Qaeda which means the story will be gone fast than you can say James T Hodgkinson, Terryous Jorelle Baker , Darrell Brooks or Molly Norris.

Unexpectedly of course.

Update; Told YA
