Outraged by reality

The senator is absolutely correct, which is why his observations on the New Zealand shootings have sparked such outrage among the reality-challenged:

A controversial federal MP has sparked outrage for blaming Islamic immigration for the Christchurch mosque shooting which has killed 49 people.

Independent Queensland senator Fraser Anning said while any form of violence could never be justified, the growing fear of the ‘increasing Muslim presence’ was behind the massacre.

‘The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program that allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place,’ he tweeted shortly after the Friday afternoon shootings.

Every mass movement of peoples has always ended in bloodshed, sooner or later. Why would anyone expect the current migration cycle to end any differently?

And this prediction is particularly apt: As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that the causes of today’s shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all cliched nonsense.
