sexism not terrorism caused Manchester UK attack …

sexism — not terrorism — caused Manchester carnage  says Brianna Wu who is running for U.S. Congress

This major league idiot [Brianna Wu]        thinks bombs have eyes.

The horrific terrorist attack in Manchester, UK after an Ariana Grande concert,  left 22 people dead, including an eight-year-old girl, and at least 50 people wounded. It’s the worst terror attack the United Kingdom has experienced since the London July 7 bombings in 2005.
Twelve of the 22 fatalities were under the age of 16. The UK authorities are treating this as a terrorist attack.
The perpetrator of this suicide bombing was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who detonated his explosive near the box office of the Manchester Arena. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Responses have been that of shock, horror, disgust, and sadness. Social media responses are mostly an outpouring of support, though some have been quite vile. Over here, one Democratic congressional candidate in Massachusetts,

Brianna Wudecided to blame sexism instead of terrorism.

 

“When a man straps on a bomb of nails, goes to woman’s concert to kill an audience of women and girls – IT’S A SAFE BET SEXISM IS INVOLVED.”

Firenze Sage:  This candidate cannot tell murder from  political correctness. Let’s hope her constituents can.

 

 Background on Wu:   Wu stated, in a radio interview, that Lynch did not sufficiently represent the Democrats, citing his positions on reproductive health care and LGTB rights. Wu also came out in favor of unions and collective bargaining.[15] Wu feels that Massachusetts proportionally contributes more to the Federal government than it receives in return and wants to use it as leverage in negotiations. She hopes that the Boston Bay area can rival San Francisco Bay as a technology hub.[16] Wu plans to move to the 8th District in order to challenge the incumbent Lynch.[17]

Sikh offers free taxi in Manchester rampage.

 

Sikh  offers free taxi. Cosmopolitan says he’s Muslim.  

Sikh. Muslim. They all look alike to liberal magazines.

While the world watched in horror at the news of a bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England on Monday evening, ordinary Mancunians jumped in to do whatever they could to assist the survivors of the attack.

There were dozens of stories of hotels taking in stranded children, adults helping to lead scared concertgoers to safety, and taxi drivers driving people home for free. These are all incredibly inspiring stories, and are nice reminders that even in the midst of unspeakable horror, some sort of “good” can emerge.

And then there’s this (now-deleted) tweet, from Cosmopolitan: “Muslim Taxi Drivers Took Kids Trying to Escape the Manchester Ariana Grande Concert Home For Free”…with a picture of a man who is actually a Sikh.
