Did you hear? There was another terrorist attack with an enormous body count. Shockingly, it wasn’t those pesky Lutherans, either.
And in response, we’re seeing a pattern forming.
Trump had something to say about it — through Twitter, naturally, and the liberal press is already trying to prove what he said wrong.
First the details about the bloody attack itself. In this case, the victims were attending a Sufi Mosque.
The death toll in a bomb and gun attack on a Sufi mosque in northern Sinai has risen to 305, with 27 children among the dead, Egypt’s state prosecutor said Saturday.
Another 128 people were wounded, according to a statement from the public prosecutor read out on Egyptian state-run news channel Nile TV.
Between 25 and 30 armed men carried out the assault on the al Rawdah Sufi mosque in Bir al-Abed, the statement said.
The prosecutor also gave more detail about how the brutal attack unfolded. The attackers arrived in five SUVs and were armed with automatic machine guns, the statement said. They took position in front of the mosque and its entrances.
Survivors of the incident now at the hospital described massive gunfire and loud explosions at the start of the attack. A number of attackers, some of them masked, then entered the mosque, the statement said.
The attackers had long beards and hair, were wearing military fatigues and were armed with heavy machine guns, according to the statement. At least one of those who entered the mosque was carrying an ISIS flag, it said.
That’s a helpful reminder that ‘doing something’ about Muslim extremists is NOT just about protecting ‘non-muslims’.
In fact, the one group with the highest casualties from violent Muslim extremists is — ironically — Muslims of a rival sect.
Our Liberal friends and family with their itchy ‘Islamophobia’ trigger finger would do well to remember that little fact.
Here’s the Twitter response from our President.
Horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless worshipers in Egypt. The world cannot tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!

What’s that? Attack on worshippers?
That doesn’t sound like Anti-Muslim hate speech at ALL!
Could the media possibly have been lying to us all time?
Let’s look at his call to action.
Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt.

But of course, the media downplays the importance and value of both the wall AND the travel ban.
If America is a known target of these wretches, doesn’t it make sense to do be proactive in blocking their access to America? The countries that have serious problems with terrorism in their borders, or a police service that cannot properly identify even the known threats from within their borders? (Or resolve, for example, fake passports?)
Here’s an interesting headline from the Obama administration. Did you hear any Democrat candidates addressing it? Or were they dismissive of the threat altogether?
Here’s an excerpt from one Clash contributor from more than a year ago:
Consider the following headline: “Revealed: Jihadis Cut Off Beards, Pose as Migrants” (Daily Mail). Attached to that story are photos taken near the Islamist stronghold the Libyan Brigades are advancing toward. Those photos show a sink filled with clippings from hair and beard. But it’s probably nothing, right? By the way, did you have a Happy “World Refugee Day”?
Now would probably be a bad time to mention the network from South America that was found to have been smuggling people into America from the Middle East, right? Would it also be a bad time to mention the sophisticated fake passports being used by ISIS members to appear as innocent civilians?
Would it be a bad time to mention that the CIA Director John Brennan mentioned all of these same things? (Which thoroughly debunks and demolishes the narrative the Executive Branch has been spinning all along.)
Cutting off their beards? Acquiring fake passports? Posing as migrants? Turning up in South America?
What COULD they POSSIBLY be planning?
ISIS. This radical terrorist organization is a virus… a worldwide plague. These a$$holes are willing to kill their own women and children to annihilate who they call “infidels.”
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. F**K ISIS.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Share if Liberals are more committed to the feelings of interest groups than the safety of citizens.
