Searching for Respect

A registered Democrat who proclaimed--repeatedly--allegiance to ISIL and proclaimed that Allah is great as he slaughtered 49 patrons at a gay nightclub in Orlando, has inspired a determined effort by the Left to deny that a known-wolf jihadi struck a blow for the caliphate at the Pulse nightclub.

Somehow, members of the Left concluded that Christian Republicans' purported hatred of gay people was so powerful that it inspired a registered Democrat who proclaimed--repeatedly--allegiance to ISIL and proclaimed that Allah is great to slaughter 49 patrons at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

This basic refusal by our Left to show our enemy the minimal level of respect of recognizing them as our enemy would frustrate the jihadis, as I wrote:

By this point our jihadi enemies must be furious at our Left. A Moslem (and a registered Democrat) commits mass murder at a gay nightclub (which even mainstream Islam outlaws), proclaims his loyalty to ISIL--repeatedly, has his attack praised by ISIL Central, and yet still the Left insists that this has nothing to do with Islam and that Christian Republicans are really at fault. What, the jihadis must ask, do we have to do to get a little credit for having responsibility for our actions to bring the glorious caliphate one step closer?

Apparently, the people who believe they are on a mission from God that will allow them to overcome any obstacle to defeat the greatest military power on Earth and create the caliphate have concluded that our Left is just too stubbornly stupid for any level of effort by jihadis to wield the clue bat to convince the Left that yes, jihadis really are willing to hate and kill members of the LGBT community as much as anyone else:

Lone wolf jihadists should target white Americans so no one mistakes their terror attacks for hate crimes unrelated to the cause of radical Islam, Al Qaeda writes in the latest edition of its online magazine.

Al Qaeda under-estimates the ability of our Left to ignore the obvious and delude itself no matter who jihadis kill. The Left will just need to turn the nuance to 11.

UPDATE: Some jihadis didn't get the memo:

Gunmen stormed a restaurant popular with expatriates in the diplomatic quarter of the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka on Friday night and took around 20 people hostage, including several foreigners, in an attack claimed by Islamic State.

I assume the jihadis are screening the hostages to see if any are ethnic Europeans.
