So this happened today:
A reclusive student shot dead by police after stabbing four people in a California university campus attack ‘had far greater intentions to do damage’, Merced County Sheriff said Wednesday.

Faisal Mohammad, a freshman who majored in computer science and engineering at the University of California was carrying highly flammable petroleum jelly, ziptie handcuffs, night vision goggles, duct tape and a hammer in his backpack when he was shot in the back by cops.

In reference to the petroleum jelly, Sheriff Vern Warnke said: 'He had poor man's C4' - C4 being the dense, putty-like explosive used widely by the military and demolition teams.

Moments before he had 'smiled' as he used a 10-inch hunting knife to stab two students, a campus construction worker and a female teacher....
The stabber's name was Faisal Mohammad. That's all right-wingers need to know, right? That and this:
Faisal Mohammad... drew praise Thursday from a Twitter account associated with ISIS, which just last week released a series of videos calling for lone wolf stabbing attacks.

“May Allah accept him,” read a tweet in Arabic from a Twitter account that terrorism experts say has carried previous ISIS propaganda, just minutes after Mohammad’s name was divulged by campus authorities.
Which proves nothing. There's no claim of responsibility (and a claim of responsibility would also prove nothing). A pro-ISIS Twitter account just appears to be opportunistically linking the group to this incident -- which authorities say wasn't political:
Mohammad "appeared to have been motivated by personal animosities, not a political agenda," [university] chancellor [Dorothy Leland] said....

Twenty FBI agents assisted local authorities in the investigation....

"During the course of their investigation, they have found nothing in this person's history, personal belongings, electronic devices, or any other items to suggest anything other than this was an act of an individual for a vendetta," [Merced County] sheriff [Vern Warnke] said.

"There is nothing to indicate that there is any political or religious motivation pertaining to what he did yesterday," Warnke said.
And Mohammad seems like the standard-issue young male American would-be mass murderer -- a guy with a scary arsenal and poor social skills:
Andrew Velasquez is one of three UC Merced students who shared a dorm suite with Mohammed, and he described his roommate as someone who “didn’t talk much,” Velasquez told CNN affiliate KFSN.

“Every time I would try to say something, he seemed like he’d just ignore it,” Velasquez told the station.

“I never saw him walk with anybody” to class, he said.
Which isn't stopping the entire American right from saying, "EEEK!!! MUSLIMS!!!" Here's David French at National Review:
Disturbing indeed, especially given the spate of stabbing attacks in Israel, an emerging signature move of individual jihadists. There’s much we still don’t know. It’s certainly possible that Mohammad had other motives for his attack, and that ISIS was merely being opportunistic -- seizing on the attacker’s Muslim name to create the false appearance of jihadist influence. However, I don’t necessarily trust either the Barack “workplace violence” Obama administration or painfully politically-correct California authorities to be entirely forthcoming with evidence.
Um, David? Here's the county sheriff:

Guys who wear hats like that tend not to be painstakingly observant of "political correctness."

Pam Geller's lead story right now is "Knife Jihad at UC Merced: Faisal Mohammad identified as Muslim who went on ‘smiling’ stabbing spree at California University." PJ Media's front page has this:


Your right-wing uncle now "knows" that the "stabbing intifada" has come to America, while Obama does nothing (or encourages it!). And as far as we can tell so far, Faisal Mohammad is just the typical American psycho killer, but with a non-Christian name.

What kind of red-blooded jihadist would use a pansy knife, when his 2nd amendment rights beckon him so seductively to the nearest gun show?

I remember many of the scaredy-cats were sure the Vendetta-masked slasher at the Swedish school last month was one of "them"; when it turned out he was an anti-immigration type their keyboards were suddenly very silent.

Difference is, if this stabber is white Aryan, it's mental illness for certain, sad stuff that happens [mehshrug keyboard emoji].

But those islammoterrists, they never have that since the 'mental' component is bred out them, at some early development stage, or there's this operation. Either way, they're toadily Caliphate directed; the Koran's a code key & they all regularly get coded messages via Dave Chappelle, Keith Ellison, Kareem-Abdul Jabbar, Ali's handlers, &, of course, B. Hussein O.

It's all laid out in Eat Pray Jokes Pray Speech Pray Hoops Pray Dope Pray Jive Pray, by Dr. B. Carson, M.D.

They aren't saying anything about his religion in the local news coverage here, which will probably set off some Breitbart columnist.
