Muslin Cover-Up

Having wallowed in the poor bastard (not to mention the recording industry exec victim clinging to life) who lost it in Hollywood recently, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Paranoid Pamela Geller's reaction. (Even though "the enemy" didn't mention it. Her bold.)
What is most disturbing about this story, apart from the obvious horror, is that not one news account reported what one witness said the shooter was screaming: "allahu akbar." Not one news account. The media is the enemy.
And the police? They didn't hear it? Or mention it? Everyone's the enemy!
Check out the video here. One of the witnesses states that the shooter was repeatedly shouting "allahu akbar" at minute 2:42. This video is on the bottom right of the LA Times new story, but they don't mention it in their coverage -- neither does Reuters, CBS news, The Hollywood Reporter, KFAI [sic], or any of the other news reports. I expect that this video will be removed or edited.
Well, it's still right there, unedited, in the middle of the three videos.
Not embeddable, but available at KTLA, &, as promised, around (2:42) eyewitness April Manlo claims the attempted murderer shouted "Allahu Akbar." None of the other witnesses mention it. We can therefore conclude they were all in on the cover-up as well, because we know how accurate eyewitness testimony is. Let alone the accuracy of some guy squawking on the telly, who's hardly under oath.

And most of the rightist blog-o-sphere must have been in on the cover-up as well, except for Pamela's two boyfriends, Jim & Robert:
Gotta love the "major media didn't report this!!" angle. Sure, we're just a cow-town out here. The Tribune Co.'s tee vee station is not major, or even media, really.

And another paranoid weighs in:

Evidently Filipinos can't be trusted when they hear "Allahu Ackbar!", because KTLA erased this eyewitness interview from their report later in the day.
Odd that in all this footage, including the guy interacting w/ the shooter, only Mr. Manlo mentions "Allahu Akbar!" Indeed, the shooter doesn't bother to mention it when he's on camera. Oh, right, cover-up. Even 'though the interview hasn't been erased. We keep forgetting.

Geez, like so maybe no one else heard it?

I'm glad I didn't pick that day to go to the Hungry Cat.

PS - did you see the comment someone made at the site about the victim?

This reminds me of a story (if you'll indulge me) of a co-worker who, sadly, had early-onset Alzheimers dementia. Anyway, as a younger man he'd been amused by the stories that Imelda Marcos had so greedily amassed a shoe collection, and at the time the story came out, we were working with a Filipino-American cultural group, and he made some mean-spirited but kinda funny jokes about shoes - it may have been that there was a consulate presence there or a Marcos proclamation, something that made the connection make sense.

But as his dementia progressed through the years, he began to make these incredibly stupid, offensive jokes about shoes anytime any mention of the Philippines or Filipino anything came up. It was like in his messed up brain, the personal quirks of Imelda Marcos had become a significant symbol of Filipino culture. He'd say shit like this and people would just go "huh?"

It almost became not-offensive in the end, because no one could understand what he was talking about.

So that's what Pammycakes and her friends are becoming - Muslim-dementia syndrome. next thing you know they'll be protesting about Algebra classes. Or boycotting the Zero.

Sure, we're just a cow-town out here.

I've seen the local news there. IT'S TRUE.

City Editor:

The human mind never fails to amaze. At least he didn't fixate on alleged dog-eating or the like.

Didn't read any comments, being one-eyed. Except the Cheney one, since there was only one.

Local news? Imagine us, telebision addict w/o cable for many mos., & what we're forced to watch.
