Will left condemn Christian massacre in Kenya? Not holding my breath.

Al-Shabab gunmen stormed a university in northeastern Kenya at dawn today, killing at least 147 people according to most recent reports, which makes it the group's bloodiest attack in the East African country, officials said. Four of the gunmen were killed by security forces.

In the attack, which turned into a hostage siege that continued into the evening at Garissa University College, masked militants separated Christian students from Muslims, and then gunned down the Christians without mercy, survivors said. Others ran for their lives with bullets whistling through the air, and hundreds of students remain unaccounted for more.

Ali Mohamud Rage, a spokesman for al-Shabab, said fighters from the Somalia-based extremist group were responsible. The al-Qaida-linked group has been blamed for a series of attacks, including the siege at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi in 2013 that killed 67 people, as well as other violence in northern Kenya.

I wonder how long it will take the Whitehouse and others on the left to spin this to make it look like those mean, bigoted, hate filled, homophobic Christian students provoked the peaceful Muslims to do this - that is, if the left even comments on this at all (other than to compare it with the Crusades). God help us.
