Jihad in Frisco?

Does anyone thing that if this nutcake had used a gun to kill and injure more than a dozen people on the streets of San Francisco yesterday, that the Boston Globe would have given the story a pass, as they seem to have done in this case?*

SAN FRANCISCO -- As many as 14 people were injured this afternoon by a motorist who drove around San Francisco deliberately running them down before being arrested by police, who believe the same driver struck and killed a man earlier today in Fremont.

Or, perhaps, if he was some redneck bigot from Alabama targeting gay people on the streets of San Francisco?

Or if he was a white separatist from Idaho going after blacks and Hispanics?

Or if he was...

Well, you get the idea.

But, a man from Afghanistan (of "Asian" origin, as some in the MSM are wont to say) randomly and "calmly", by eyewitness accounts, killing and injuring American citizens - men, women, and children - on the sidewalks with an SUV?

Yeah, nothing newsworthy there. Chalk it up to his just having a bad day. I mean, really, who hasn't been there, done that?

Regardless, I blame Dick Cheney.

"The hits were intentional," [San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Neville Gittens] said, noting that police are treating them as assaults.

Why, it's almost as if his automobile became an "assault weapon".

Go figure.

Mayor Gavin Newsom visited five of the victims at San Francisco General Hospital.

"This was so senseless and inexplicable," the mayor said afterward.

Again, does anyone think Mayor Newsom's reaction would have been similar had the weapon of choice been a handgun, or worse, an evil, scary-looking, semiautomatic rifle? Were that the case, you can bet your ass Newsom would have an explanation handy. But, seeing as "Cars Cause Crime" has yet to work its way into the Loony Leftist Lexicon, the mayor finds himself at a loss for words.

And, you just had to see this one coming.

From the nutcake's cousin:

"Omeed is not that kind of boy. I don't know what is wrong with him. He is the nicest boy."

Yeah, once you look beyond the fact that he's a deranged, homicidal maniac, he's just a peach.

* As of 8:15 this morning, I was unable to find anything about this on the Boston Globe's online edition, or on their website, If someone finds a link there, please let me know, so I can update the post accordingly. Thanks much.

UPDATE: Via Weebs, the link (it was up last wonder I missed it, I was out at the Galway House in JP drinking beer), and the question:

Do I win fabulous cash and prizes for finding it?

The first "Give Peace a Chance" bumper sticker out of the box will be headed your way, Weebs. Just shoot me your address by e-mail.
