Following every act of Islamic terror, the mainstream media worry more about a potentially "Islamophobic" response than the plight of the victims. MSNBC's Richard Lui followed suit Saturday when he fretted over whether the London police, in their attempts to restore order, might "overreact" and deploy "too much force." With what, Lui? Billy clubs?
Newsbusters provides the transcript and the Free Beacon captured the video clip above:
RICHARD LUI: When you have analyzed these incidents post facto as well as during, as you have so many times with me and others here on MSNBC and NBC News, what is the risk — there’s certainly a risk of underreaction — but is there any risk of overreaction, of deploying too much? You know, as we’ve been watching all of this live coming into our satellite center here in New York City, and then beaming it out from London, is there ever a point where you go, "Well, that’s too much, or you shouldn’t be applying that amount of force there"?
JIM CAVANAUGH, NBC NEWS LAW ENFORCEMENT ANALYST: Well, you know, in the city, the experience and the attacks, when there’s multiple attacks, really I don’t think the response could be too large, to get enough officers and investigators there to quickly quell and then find out what’s going on. It’s not a question of too many officers. It’s a question of using them adequately, smartly, getting all the help you can get.
Lui's reaction illustrates why the West is doomed.
