NBCs Mohyeldin Makes Bogus Claims of Racial Double Standard on Terrorism
On Sunday and early Monday after word broke of the church shootings in Sutherland Springs, Texas, NBC correspondent Ayman Mohyeldin took to Twitter and sounded like a liberal activist as he tweeted out several comments suggesting that U.S. government agencies discriminate against Muslims in applying the word "terrorism" to so many acts of mass violence by Muslims, but not so much with white non-Muslim men.
By contrast, on Monday's New Day, CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd explained to viewers that the main factor that categorizes a violent act as "terrorism" is that it has to be politically motivated -- a fact that Mohyeldin could easily have taken the time to learn before rattling off suggestions of discrimination by law enforcement agencies.
At 2:45 p.m. on Sunday, Mohyeldin made his first relevant tweet as he vaguely hinted that there was some untoward reason that law enforcement were not labeling the church attack as "terrorism." Mohyeldin:ï¿½"Federal officials say while the gunman's motive is unclear, there's obvious sign of a connection to terrorism... you know what that means."
The tweet received a number of responses from Twitter users who got what he was hinting at they more directly stated that the shooter must be "white" or not "Muslim."
