The media has long proven that it will go to whatever lengths necessary to avoid naming radical Islamic extremists as the culprits in any number of horrific terrorist attacks the world has seen in recent times.
The attack this week in Germany, where a suspected Islamic terrorist drove a large truck into a crowd at a Christmas market, killing twelve people and injuring another 48, is the latest example of this.
ABC News posted a video on Twitter of Chancellor Angela Merkel, who allowed a floodgate of Middle East refugees into Germany, laying flowers at the Berlin market, along with the caption saying “12 people were killed by a truck.”

It’s precisely this kind of politically correct nonsense that resulted in Donald Trump being elected president of the United States.
As for social media users, the only option, besides crying over the stupidity, is to battle it with a healthy dose of snarky commentary.
Here’s a sampling of responses of people taking ABC to task for its deception… and from a few hoping the killer truck is captured and brought to justice:
The truck is still at large. https://t.co/H5yoUqXvle

@ABC You mean an Islamic terrorist used a truck to kill 12 ppl. The truck was the tool, not the murderer.

@ABC a terrorist did this not a truck. This deliberate obfuscation of facts by the media is criminal

@ABC So a random truck became self-aware and decided to run over humans at a Christmas market. Hmmm.

@ABC Was the evil truck sentenced to life imprisonment in an impound yard or death by crusher?

@ABC Killed by a truck? Knock this PC crap off and report the truth: they were killed by one of Merkel’s “refugees”

@ABC No word on when the truck became a radical Islamicist truck but police are investigating the truck’s support for ISIS in social media

@ABC yes, the truck drove itself into the market. Say with me now: “ISLAMIC TERRORISM”..
