While the leftist media almost immediately suggested that all white people were collectively responsible for the Charleston massacre, even after the Chattanooga killer was named as Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, one CNN analyst asserted that he might even not be a Muslim.

Of course it was quickly revealed that Abdulazeez was a Muslim (the clue being the name Muhammad), but this one exchange illustrates yet again how progressives are obsessed with political correctness in their refusal to acknowledge the threat posed by radical Islam – or that violent Muslims are motivated by Islam at all.

Asked by John Berman what the name ‘Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez’ suggested about the nature of the attack, CNN analyst and former FBI assistant director Tom Fuentes was frightened to even acknowledge the likelihood that the shooter was an Islamic extremist.

“I know…what the name sounds like, but we don’t know that it’s a Muslim name. We know it’s an Arabic name. We don’t know what this individual was believing in, and that’s what they’re going to be trying to determine,” said Fuentes.

You could almost feel Fuentes quaking in his boots at the very thought of having to acknowledge that Islam may have played a role in the attack.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell also tried to divert attention from Abdulazeez’s own blog which revealed that Islam played a central role in his ideology, instead choosing to ask his bewildered former classmate whether or not the shooter liked to go hunting.

The revulsion that was (rightly) directed towards Dylann Roof was also mysteriously absent. CNN anchor Carol Costello called Abdulazeez “good looking” and “popular at high school.”

Meanwhile, Salon.com, which said that “White America must answer for the Charleston church massacre,” is not calling for all Muslims or Arabs to answer for the Chattanooga shooting. In fact, the story is barely even being covered by the leftist media outlet at all.

Similarly, Rachel Maddow, who blamed conservatives for ‘inspiring’ the Charleston shooting, slammed the ‘ignorant scramble for answers’ after the Chattanooga attack. Apparently, attempting to get answers about the motive of the killer is only ‘ignorant’ if he’s not white.

The tired old liberal sacred cow about Islamic extremists being motivated by poverty and not Islam (recall Marie Harf’s “jobs for ISIS” remark) has also been demolished with the release of images of Abdulazeez’s upscale home complete with swimming pool. The shooter was an engineering graudate from a privileged background.

It has also been reported that the mosque attended by the shooter decided to cancel its Ramadan celebrations out of respect for the dead Marines, a commendable decision. Unfortunately, President Barack Obama didn’t show similar tact. He released a statement lecturing Americans about how they should respect Islam before even paying tribute to the dead Marines or commenting on the shooting at all.
