No wonder Obama didn’t want to go to Paris. Those Zealots of No Particular Ideology are just running around shooting everybody.
Taking a big step down from his recent interview with GloZell, here’s the commander-in-chief explaining modern [CENSORED] terrorism to Vox’s Matt Yglesias:
Obama: It is entirely legitimate for, uh, the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a buncha, uh… violent, vicious zealots, uh, who behead people or randomly shoot… uh… a buncha folks, uh, in a, in a deli in Paris. Uh…
Yglesias: [squirms, twitches]
See? Those folks in that Paris deli were shot at random. Those folks could have been anybody. Any folks at all. There was no particular reason for these violent, vicious zealots — “whatever ideology they’re operating off of,” in Obama’s words — to kill those particular folks.
That’s all, folks.
But enough about that. Don’t you think it’s about time you people apologized for the Crusades?

Update: In case you think lil’ Matty was too tough on our president there…
