There's nothing like a terrorist attack to get Fox News and the conservarazzi spinning out of control. Soon after the attack on France' weekly publication Charles Hebdo hit the wires, right wing media decided that their talking points of the day would be not about the terror attack itself, but the real cause of terrorism. And in this case it was that political leaders across the world were afraid to call out Islam because of their adherence to "political correctness."

Fox News has been running with this meme exclusively. Earlier today, Fox & Friends had on a military expert who blamed the attacks on "PC," and after her opening segment, Gretchen Carlson used a former Reagan official as a national security expert who also claimed that political correctness was destroying the world. After she thought she was being clever by making believe a lone wolf terrorist was something new in the world, she went on to describe the real problem at hand, "political correctness."

Carlson: You also say France was ripe for his kind of attack, in what way?

McFarland: A number of reasons. I think a lot of it has to do with political correctness. We, the west, our leaders failed to call this what it is. Stop pussyfooting around and call it what it is. This is Islamic extremist, this is Jihadist terrorists. These are people who in the name of religion are conducting massacres and murders..

You can see the blood lust percolating within her body as she spouts her nonsense. She then went insane over France's president because his presser immediately after the attacks occurred wasn't good enough for her.

Carlson: We were listing to the French president at the top of the show and it caught your attention that he didn't talk at all about prevention down the road.

McFarland: Right! Gretchen, what he talked about, we're going to track them down, we're going to arrest them we're going to...What-about-preventing-the-next-attack!

These right wing demigods never tell you how political correctness is killing everybody, but they breathlessly scream about it from the top of the roofs. Every person in the world knows when a terrorist attack occurs and doesn't need right wing talking points to explain it to them. No, it's more about a war on religion for them than terrorism.
