Updated 13 dead.

I had made plans to be in Barcelona around now, but other things kept me from going.

Tragic.

RIP

Suspect has been apprehended.

Driss Oukabir rented the attack van. His Facebook page has
✔️Anti-Semitic posts
✔️Video: Muslims versus Christians

His motivation is unclear at this time.

Per Wolf Blitzer it's Trumps fault since it was a copycat of Charlottesville attack.

Wouldn't the Charlottesville attack be a copycat of previous vehicle attacks in Europe? The media lies and lies and lies and lies, never once looking in the mirror to confront their hypocrisy.

The left just can't bring themselves to identify true hatred and ideological violence when its put in front of them.

The Boston Globe headline was that a "White Van plowed into a crowd of tourists".

Am I to feel guilty about this now?

Surely the lack of clarity statement is in jest?
