“Some Japanese attacked us.”

Mark Steyn's ability to skewer the Left via humor is killer. 

How many times have we been told that most Muslim's are peaceful and the the ones who slit our throats, bomb us or shoot us are not representative of Muslims as a whole.

WHEN GOVERNMENTS ATTACK! has these incredible lines [referring to an article in the Providence Journal]:
“The Japanese government” bombed Pearl Harbor? Was the Second World War an epic conflict of bureaucrats, with Tokyo civil servants in imperial morning dress bearing down on beleaguered State Department officials? Or was the Providence Journal self-correcting? Perhaps Ms. Borg originally wrote that “Japan” or “the Japanese” bombed Pearl Harbor, and a sharp-eyed editor amended it to clarify that only a few employees of “the Japanese government” participated in the bombing. Or perhaps political correctness is now so ingrained that a Providence reporter reflexively writes like that anyway. As Whoopi Goldberg put it, in response to Bill O’Reilly’s careless slur that the Japanese had attacked us at Pearl Harbor: “Some Japanese attacked us.” Doubtless atypical Japanese, from whose unrepresentative ranks no general conclusions can be drawn.
“Some Japanese attacked us.”
It just doesn't get any better than that.
