In Wake of Lahore, Pakistan Easter Bombing Which Targeted Christians and Killed 70, the White House Needs You To Know That Muslims Were The Main Victims Here

You motherf**ers.

An initial statement released by the State Department on Sunday noticeably neglected to mention the fact that Christians were specifically targeted in the attack for which the Pakistani Taliban later claimed responsibility.

Though Earnest did acknowledge that Christians celebrating Easter were the intended targets of the bombing, he stressed that "the majority of the victims were actually Muslims."

Here's the latest slaughter of Christians by Muslims that the White House is pretending away, lest you become the murderous terrorists Obama knows you secretly are.

Pakistan's prime minister on Monday vowed to eliminate perpetrators of terror following the Sunday suicide bombing that targeted Christians gathered for Easter in the eastern city of Lahore, killing 70 people and injuring around 300.

In response to the attack, the military reportedly arrested dozens in raids in eastern Punjab, where several deadly militant organizations are headquartered.

And in Lahore, forensic experts sifted through the debris in the park where the suicide attack took place. The bomb had been a crude devise loaded with ball bearings, designed to rip through the bodies of its victims to cause maximum damage, counter-terrorism official Rana Tufail said. He identified the suicide bomber as Mohammed Yusuf, saying he was known as a militant recruiter.

Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a Taliban faction that, in a sort of cosmic harmonic convergence of psychopathic assholes, supports ISIS. They claimed credit and specifically acknowledged they intended to target Christians on Easter -- though they also claimed they didn't intend to kill women and children, just Christian men.

But that is, of course, a lie.

. They could have targeted the men with a more precise method of attack, or at other places and times. They deliberately chose an Easter celebration because it would involve families at a time when their guard would be down.

We'll wait to see if Josh Earnest and Barack Obama vouch for the Taliban's good intentions.

This is somewhat reassuring: Pakistan's army chief is vowing to hunt down the "non-humans" who did this.

Army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif promised Pakistan "will never allow these savage nonhumans to overrun our life and liberty."

Doesn't he know that that kind of dehumanizing rhetoric is Just What ISIS and/or The Taliban Wants?
