When refugees blame refugees for terrorism

Welcome back to Monday, the Groundhoggiest day of the week, kittens! What did you miss over the weekend? Moar hacks, moar ops, moar blithering by political candidates. Anonymous and OpISIS swung into action with fresh purpose after the Paris attacks, the media suddenly started covering attacks in the Middle East and Africa after years of “oh yeah and stuff happened elsewhere: no Americans were killed,” and somewhere in Knightsbridge a lone wolf refugee spent much of the weekend blaming refugees for the violence in a now mostly-deleted series of tweets.
