DAILYKENN.com -- The religion of peace has struck again.
74 were killed in Nice, France when a truck slammed into crowd at Bastille Day celebrations in a 'terror attack'.
When will we stop pretending Islam is anything but a massive, deadly hate group?

Why do we condemn the nearly-defunct Klan as a hate group while embracing Islam? Which group has committed the most terror attack in the past 15 years? In the past 1,400 years?
Why do we excuse members of Islam as "moderates," but never concede that Klan members were mostly law-abiding "moderates"?
Why do we use the term "Islamophobe" to repudiate those who condemn Islam, but don't use the term "Klanophobe" to repudiate those who condemn the Klan?
Why the hypocrisy?
I'm no apologist for the Klan, but I find the double standard maddening.
Why are we pretending that hundreds of thousands of Muslim insurgents are "refugees"?
DEVELOPING: A large truck loaded with guns and hand grenades drove into a crowd of people who had gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks show Thursday in the southern French city of Nice, killing at least 77 people and injuring 50 more in an apparent terror attack.
Regional president Christian Estrosi confirmed the death toll in a post on Twitter. Earlier, he had called the attack "the worst tragedy in the history of Nice" and asked residents to stay indoors.
French Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet said the truck driver had been "neutralized" and an investigation would confirm whether he had acted alone. The Paris prosecutor's office announced that it was opening an anti-terrorism investigation into the attack.
The horror began at around 10:30 p.m. local time. A local government official told Fox News that the truck was driving full speed when it hit the crowd.
Damien Allemand, a journalist for the local Nice-Matin newspaper, said the fireworks display was over and people were getting up to leave when they heard a loud noise and screams.
"A fraction of a second later, an enormous white truck came along at a crazy speed, turning the wheel to mow down the maximum number of people," he said. "I saw bodies flying like bowling pins along its route. Heard noises, cries that I will never forget."
