Earlier today, I posted on a terror attack in Barcelona, Spain. At the time, the death toll was said to be two persons, as it turned out it was much, much worse:

A van driver deliberately zigzagged into a crowd enjoying a sunny afternoon on Barcelona’s main pedestrian mall Thursday, killing at least 13 people and leaving 80 lying bloodied on the pavement.

It was the worst terrorist attack in Spain since 2004, and was at least the sixth time in the past few years that assailants using vehicles as deadly weapons have struck a European city.

How is the media handling this? Pretty much as you’d expect.

It starts off with high-functioning moron and Obama fellatiso Jim Scuitto:

[I]n light of the uproar over the last several days, five days apart, you have white supremacists in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have — attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles, apparently to kill as well. And it’s that — those shared tactics that should be alarming.

Note the pause as Sciutto grapples with his urge to call ISIS, which has claimed responsibility, a white supremacist group. I know you think I’m joking. I’m not. Just stick with me.

Then Wolf Blitzer weighs in:

Yeah, and there will be questions about copycats. There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona, was at all, at all, a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though they may be different characters, different political ambitions, they used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians

While I write Sciutto’s commentary off to him being what he is, an amoral partisan hack who will tell any lie to advance the cause of the Democrats, Blitzer is actually a pretty intelligent guy.

Let’s review the bidding here:

And there is more from Sciutto

ISIS and white supremacists are brothers in arms? How does this even work?

Sean Davis, from The Federalist, asks the obvious question:

And, no insane commentary would be complete unless Keith Olbermann was involved: 

Right.

This is insane. Islamic terrorists have been using cars as weapons for months. If there was any copycatting in Charlottesville, it was the moron there copying something he’d heard about from attacks in Europe but, given the small size of the guy’s forehead I’m doubting that he followed international affairs all that closely.

What Sciutto is doing here is saying that jihadis = white supremacists. The reason he’s doing that is because the media has already established that white supremacist = Republican. Now you have jihadi = Republican.
