Reflexive Denial of Jihad Kicks In Again With Appearance (In Burlington, WA) of Latest "Lone Wolf"

As in the case of the Orlando nightclub massacre, which early on was being attributed to homophobic "right-wingers," and the recent pressure cooker bombs in New Jersey and New York City, which officials so hoped had "no terrorist connections," but which, of course, did, what happened the other day at a mall in Washington state--a gunman opening fire and killing five people--was at first attributed to a Hispanic-looking dude (who, being Hispanic, could not possibly be one of Allah's holy warriors).

Reflexive denial coupled with wishful (not to mention downright delusional) thinking and a fear of being labeled "Islamophobic": a recipe for societal disaster.
