All of the predictable people are expressing predictable outrage about the revelation that Roger Ailes once proposed what he thought was a clever way to keep the new World Trade Center from being the target of another Islamist terrorist attack. What he allegedly said was, “We should fill the last ten floors with Muslims so they never do it again.”
I too am outraged.
Honestly! How can someone be so naive? No matter where you look in the Middle East and Africa, Muslims are busy killing each other. Syria is the hot spot now, but between racist Islamic killings (the Sudan), Sunni v. Shia Muslim killings (most of the Muslim world), politically inspired Muslim killings (Egypt), and Iran’s willingness to nuke Israel despite the Muslim holocaust that would result, it’s pretty darn clear that Muslims have no compunction about killing each other.
Indeed, one could credibly argue that filling the last ten floors with Muslims would make the new World Trade Center a more enticing target, depending on the terrorist. Any future attack could be a delightful twofer: killing Americans and killing the “wrong” kind of Muslims.
So, yes, I’m offended. Ailes said something stupid and, moreover, something stupid that had the added benefit of creating a sweet target for the Left’s perpetual outrage.
