BLP Editor Howley: Jake Tapper’s ‘Allahu Akbar’ Response Was ‘inappropriate’
Check out this video with Patrick E. Howley and the comments by CNN’s Jake Tapper:
The editor-in-chief of Big League Politics weighted in on CNN host Jake Tapper’s bizarre decision to celebrate the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” after he was told that three witnesses heard Sayfullo Saipov, the Manhattan truck driver, who plowed into a sidewalk and bicycle lane–killing eight and injuring at least one dozen more.
“Allah Akbar is sometimes said under the most beautiful of circumstances,” said Jake Tapper, who as a young man worked for a group dedicated to banning handguns and who married a senior attorney for Planned Parenthood.
Patrick E. Howley, the founder of BLP, said he was disgusted by Tapper’s characterization of the phrase always exclaimed by radical Muslim terrorists, including Army Maj. Nidal M. Hasan, the Fort Hood, Texas shooter, who killed 13 and wounded 30 unarmed soldiers.
“If this is what Jake Tapper thinks is appropriate to say after a terrorist attack he should be ashamed of himself,” said Howley.
“Jake Tapper and CNN push leftist propaganda day-in-and-day-out,” he said.
“A terrorist attack is not the time for their tactics,” he said. “The mainstream media does not want to admit that radical Islam is behind these attacks–but, they cannot deny that this happened inside our borders.”
