While the unelected ruling left-elite in this country continue to flog the unfortunate death of a victim of two racist freak groups going at it Charlottesville, the mass slaughter by an Islamic network of devout murderers merely elicits a … shrug.
The left has finally found, or should I say created, their villain, and they mean to club us to death with it.
Meanwhile, Spanish authorities are still searching for the Muslim ringleader of an Islamic cell that carried out vehicle attacks in Barcelona and a seaside resort, as they looked into links among the cell members.

Early in the morning, police searched two buses in northwest Catalonia in the hunt for any remaining members of the cell. Nothing was found in the searches in Girona and Garrigas, police tweeted.
Police also announced a series of controlled explosions Saturday in the town of Alcanar, south of Barcelona, where the carnage was planned in a rental house destroyed a day before the attacks by an apparently accidental blast. Authorities had initially written off the Wednesday night incident as a household gas accident, but took another look on Friday and returned on Saturday.
This headline is a victory for those us who for years have worked hard to tell the truth about ‘jihad’:
Spanish terror cell planned to use ‘Mother of Satan’ explosive used in 7/7 bombings to slaughter hundreds in ‘spectacular’ blast at Barcelona’s famous cathedral
Police believe the terror cell behind Thursday’s atrocity in Barcelona planned attack of ‘bigger scope’
It could have included a plan to blow up a gas-filled van by the world-famous cathedral Sagrada Familia
Killers were forced to abandon plans to use butane gas and plastic explosive TATP following accidental explosion on Wednesday
TATP – also known as ‘Mother of Satan’ – caused devastation when it was used in the 7/7 attacks in London
One person died and police believe there may be a second corpse in rubble of home in Alcanar, 120 miles from Barcelona
Investigators think vans were used because jihadists didn’t have the right permit to rent a large lorry

The terrorists who killed 14 people and wounded over a hundred in Catalonia had originally planned to drive three vans packed with explosives into iconic parts of Barcelona including the Sagrada Familia cathedral, it has been reported.
Had their butane-filled gas containers not accidentally detonated the night before the atrocities on Thursday, the 12-person terror cell would have used them to maximise deaths in the tourist hotspots of the Spanish city, local media suggest.
They intended to explode one van in Las Ramblas, a second by the world-famous Sagrada Familia cathedral and the last in the port area of the city, El Espanol has claimed.
To detonate the gas, they intended to use the same TATP explosives – also known as the ‘Mother of Satan’ – that were blown up in the 7/7 bombings in London.The cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of the most visited attractions in Europe.
Architect Antonio Gaudi began construction in 1882 and, despite him dying in 1926, it is still officially incomplete.
In 2010 it was consecrated by Pope Benedict XVI as a minor basilica.

Investigators believe a 12-strong terror cell planned to detonate the highly-explosive gas, using plastic explosive TATP – which was also found at the site – in its attack on the Catalan city’s tourist district.
But less than 24 hours before the atrocity, one member was killed in an accidental blast. Police have said there may still be another body buried in the rubble of the house in Alcanar, which is more than 120 miles south of Barcelona.
More than 20 butane gas canisters were found intact in the wreckage, as well as Acetone peroxide (TATP) – nicknamed ‘Mother of Satan’ because of the high number of accidental explosions it causes.
The discovery supports claims by Spanish police that the gang planned to murder hundreds in a terrorist ‘spectacular’.

Had the explosion not happened, a police chief said, Thursday’s attack would have had ‘bigger scope’.
Last night Catalonia’s police force tweeted: ‘We are working to determine if remains at Alcanar are a second corpse/We are working to determine if biological traces from Alcanar are human.’
Security experts believe the gang wanted to hire a large truck like the one used to devastating effect in the Nice atrocity two years ago, but they were unable to get permits so had to settle with smaller vans.

One person linked to the atrocity has been arrested at the scene of the explosion, authorities confirmed on Thursday night.
Police confirmed on Friday afternoon that the suspects had been planning to use explosives in the mass killing.
Josep Lluis Trapero of Catalonia’s police said: ‘They were preparing one or several attacks in Barcelona, and an explosion in Alcanar stopped this as they no longer had the material they needed to commit attacks of an even bigger scope.’
Initially treated as a random gas blast, police later linked to the explosion to the Barcelona assault, believing occupants of the house were preparing an explosive device inside and slipped up.
Trapero said that after this, the suspects allegedly quickly went on to commit ‘more rudimentary’ attacks. These involved the vehicles ploughing into pedestrians in Barcelona and Cambrils.
The Cambrils suspects had an axe and knives in the car as well as fake explosive belts stuck to their bodies, said police.
Thirteen people were killed and more than 100 wounded when a van was driven into walkers on the busy Las Ramblas street in Barcelona.

Driss Oukabir (pictured) has been arrested by police, according to local media reports. The Guardia Civil previously said the van used in the attack was rented by Oukabir in the town of Santa Perpetua de la Mogada
