ThinkProgress - White House Says Mosque Bombing Might Have Been Faked by Liberals
Just imagine if a Muslim had blown up a Church during the Obama presidency and he at one point refused to comment since it might have been faked by conservatives. The idea that someone would even suggest that this terrorist attack, and that’s clearly what it is, could have been faked is just ridiculous, and would be far more shocking coming from any other president who was in office in the past fifty years, including the ones that were Republicans.

An as-of-yet unidentified individual threw a makeshift bomb through the window of a mosque in Minnesota Saturday, and Gorka was asked on MSNBC Monday if the White House will comment. Gorka said that the White House will “absolutely” comment once there is a finalized investigation into the incident.
“There’s a great rule: All initial reports are false,” Gorka said. “You have to check them and find out who the perpetrators are. We’ve had a series of crimes committed, alleged hate crimes by right wing individuals in the last six months that turned out to be prop propagated by the left. Let’s allow the local authorities to provide their assessment and then the White House will make its comments.”
Does anyone here actually think that this denial is justified?
