The Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrested two people yesterday, evidently converts to Islam, for planning a pressure-cooker bomb attack in British Columbia:
Police in Canada have arrested and charged a man and woman with terrorism for attempting to leave pressure cooker bombs at British Columbia’s provincial legislature on Canada Day, when thousands of people were expected to be there.
John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody [notice: no reference to their jihad names — BB] were inspired by Al Qaeda ideology but were self-radicalized, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Assistant Commissioner James Malizia said Tuesday.
“Inspired by Al Qaeda ideology”, eh? What kind of ideology is that?
Well it’s violent, OK?
It’s radical. Did I mention that?
And it’s extremist. Does that help clarify things?
No? Let’s cue the tape, then.
Vlad Tepes has compiled excerpts from an RCMP press conference about yesterday’s arrests. Watch this uniformed stooge duck, squirm, bob, and weave to avoid ever mentioning the dreaded I-word:
The title of this post refers yet again to a classic sketch by the comedian Will Franken, which is what Vlad’s compilation reminded me of. The whole shtick is essentially a replay of the notorious testimony before Congress by various officials of the Pentagon and Justice Department, where the rules insisted — just as they did yesterday in British Columbia — that JIM must never, ever be mentioned.
Mr. Franken’s relevant sequence begins at about 0:53 in this (WARNING: much of the rest of this clip is offensive to Christians, Jews, gay people, straight people, and just about anyone else on the planet) YouTube video.
