The attacker has not been described in the media despite witnesses. This used to mean he was Muslim but now I think it applies to anyone in order to not lead the idea it was a Muslim, and to better deflate those of us that see the connection between Islam and motive if it is released later that he was not.
After all, the standards are, we have to be right 100% of the time and if we are wrong once, then they try and destroy our credibility.
In any case its noteworthy that a woman MP for Labour, the most muslim friendly political party in Western Europe outside actual sharia law parties, was shot and stabbed.
Then again, she is a woman.
A female Labour MP has been shot twice and stabbed by a man with a ‘makeshift gun’ as she met constituents in West Yorkshire.
Jo Cox, MP for Batley and Spen, was speaking to locals in Birstall near Leeds when she was savagely attacked.
The shocking incident took place near the town’s library where the 41-year-old politician held advice surgeries.
Those who saw the shocking incident said the mother-of-two was left ‘bleeding on the pavement’.
(Those who saw, but didnt report what the attacker looked like or more likely, it is not being reported)
