Congressman Sean Duffy reveals that he thought there was a difference between Quebec attack where six Muslim residents were killed by a right-wing terrorist and the the ones inspired by ISIS.
MADISON - Residents of Wisconsin's Seventh Congressional District might be having buyers remorse after electing Rep. Sean Duffy in November. Since scoring another chance to chase down corporate donations and appear on cable television, Rep. Sean Duffy has rebuffed Wisconsin values at every turn, but today he took his act to a new low.
This morning on CNN, when pressed by CNN host Alisyn Camerota why President Trump failed to address the recent mosque attack in Quebec City, where six Muslim residents were killed by a right-wing supporter, Congressman Sean Duffy revealed that he thought there was a difference between attacks like the ones inspired by ISIS and the one that took place in Canada.
Duffy took it a step further when reminded that extremism, hatred, and white supremacy were common threads behind acts of terrorism like the attacks in Quebec City and Charleston, South Carolina. Duffy responded to the Charleston example, where nine innocent churchgoers were slain, that the outcome of Gov. Nikki Haley taking down the confederate flag was in fact "great."
Reporters nationwide have been taken aback by Duffy's insensitive, nonsensical, politically craven comments:
Salon: Republican Rep. Sean Duffy believes there is no comparison between radical Islamist attacks and violence carried out in the name of white supremacy. In fact, the Wisconsin congressman compared Trump’s silence on the Canadian mosque shooting to the media’s inadequate coverage of people getting “beat up for wearing a Make America Great Again hat.”
