VIDEO: ABC News Worried About Potential ‘Anti-Islamic Backlash’ After Manchester Terror Attack


This is the kneejerk response of the enemedia and leftwing cultural elites as dismembered little girls lie in the morgues of Manchester’s hospitals, their tiny bodies wracked by nails, bolts and shrapnel.

As I said, in the wake of every bloody Islamic attack comes the attack in the information battlespace. The victims, the targets of jihad terror, are warned to go along with their executioners, to say nothing critical of their motives and belief system. Instead, we should draw back our bows on anyone who dares criticize the ideology that fuels this violence and murder.

These soulless zealots are as savage as the jihadis. Different methods is all.

ABC News Worried About Potential ‘Anti-Islamic Backlash’ After Manchester Terror Attack

by Andrew Kugle, Washington Free Beacon, May 23, 2017:

Two ABC News reporters were worried about a potential ‘anti-Islamic backlash’ on Tuesday morning, hours after the Manchester terrorist attack.

A suicide bomb attack killed at least 22 people and injured more than 50 others after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Several of the victims were children, including eight-year-old Saffie Roussos.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the assault.

ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos told network correspondent Martha Raddatz hours after the attack on “Good Morning America” that it would most likely spark anti-Islamic sentiment across the United Kingdom and Europe.

“This is also likely to inflame anti-Islamic sentiment across Britain, across Europe,” Stephanopoulos said.

Raddatz agreed and described how the attack would create a backlash against Muslims.

“It sure could, George. Manchester itself is a very multicultural city. There’s a large Muslim population with many there for generations,” Raddatz said. “So headscarfs attract little attention there. And notably, Manchester did not vote in favor of Brexit. But an attack like this, as you said, is much bigger than Manchester itself and will likely create backlash, depending on the details of this attack.”

ABC was not the only network to express concern about the potential for anti-Muslim backlash. On NBC’s “Today” show, counterterrorism expert Richard Clarke alluded to President Trump’s rhetoric on terrorism and Islam during the campaign, calling it “counterproductive.”

“That’s why the talk against Muslims in the last year in the campaign and since has been very counterproductive,” Clarke said. “The only way to solve this problem is to have everyone think they’re on the same side.”…
