If Someone Named After The Prophet Murders Marines, It'S Because He's A Redneck, Right?

Desperately looking for a way to avoid pegging the Chattanooga murderer Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez as anything but a terrorist, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell asked a childhood friend of the killer what he liked to do in “small town Tennessee”:
“Were guns a big part of activities—social or other activities?” Mitchell asked her interviewee abruptly.
“What?” her interviewee responded.
“Did he hunt, did he shoot?” Mitchell prodded. “Was that just part of small-town Tennessee activity?”
“Um, he actually wasn’t one of the guys I heard about going hunting,” Abdulazeez’s classmate responded. “He wasn’t really that kind of guy.”

It can't be Islam, can it?

As phrased, it says Mitchell "Desperately ..." wanted "to [peg] ... Abdulazeez as a terrorist..."

Perhaps he passed a Confederate battle flag on the way to school each morning. (Insert eyeroll emoticon here).
Oh, brother, who still buys this stuff from the press anymore, anyway?

This continual effort by the media to find other motives sounds as reasonable as O.J. Simpson's now-suspended search for the real murderer(s) of the mother of his children and Ron Goldman.
