Shortly after yesterday’s terror attack, Mayor Bill De Blasio quickly let us know that this was a “cowardly act of terrorism.”
And what exactly makes this a cowardly act?
Can someone explain to me why every time there is a terror attack, some idiot politician has to rush in front of cameras and call it a cowardly act?
Cowardly is defined as lacking courage or contemptibly timid.
So how exactly is renting a truck from Home Depot and driving it into a crowd of pedestrians “lacking courage” or “contemptibly timid?”
Now, to me, a cowardly act is cynically calling a terrorist attack that kills thirteen people “workplace violence” so you don’t have to admit that terrorists exist.
You know what else is a cowardly act? Blaming a terrorist attack on a YouTube video so that you aren’t held accountable for your own inaction.
But a terrorist attack is not what I would call a “cowardly act.”
It is as irrelevant as calling it “a grammatically-incorrect act.”
So why do it?
Well, if I had to guess, I’d say De Blasio wants to dismiss or downplay the threat of jihad. And, more importantly, he wants to avoid being politically incorrect.
De Blasio calling a terror attack that kills eight people “cowardly” is, in itself, a cowardly act.
What is Bill De Blasio but “contemptibly timid?”
These guys are so terrified of being labeled “Islamophobic” that they bend over backwards to excuse radical Islam.
The same can be said for CNN’s reporter Shimon Prokupecz. Who, after police released a description of the terrorist, refused to provide it.
And let’s not forget Jake Tapper downplaying the significance of the terrorist shouting “Allah Akbar” – and saying it is “sometimes said under the most beautiful circumstances.”
You know what’s “contemptibly timid?” Political correctness.
This terrorist is a despicable human being.
And there are plenty of great words to describe this act of terror – including barbaric, evil, monstrous, bloodthirsty, savage, and Islamic — but cowardly is not one of them.
In fact, the real cowards here are the politicians who refuse to put America’s national security ahead of political correctness.
The real cowards are the ones who are so terrified of offending that they are too timid to act in America’s best interests.
So sorry Mayor De Blasio.
I hate to break it to you.
But the only cowardly act committed yesterday was your timid and fearful press conference.
