SERIOUSLY: BuzzFeed Says “Ban All Cars From Big Cities” In Response To NYC Terror Attack
No, this isn’t a joke.
In a newly penned and published op-ed Buzzfeed is suggesting that we “ban all cars from big cities” less than a week after an Islamic extremist drove a Home Depot rental truck into a crowd of people in Manhattan.
Because why would we ever better our immigration policy, extreme vetting, or reevaluations to national security if we just make cars illegal, right?!
Far-left trash-pile Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, tweeted out the insane story earlier today:
We Should Ban Cars From Big Cities. Seriously. https://t.co/jWzNLiXIbi

Here is an excerpt from the article that claims terrorists that scream “Allahu akbar” before killing innocent Americans are not as big a threat as the automotive industry:
In the coming days, politicians will try to convince you that what happened on the West Side Highway in Manhattan this week was an issue of terrorism, immigration, or religion. But just like the plague of mass shootings is a gun problem, the thousands of people killed by cars as they walk our streets every year is a car problem.
A gun lobbyist would typically step in right about now to ask whether those who demand gun control after mass shootings also want to ban cars after events like this week. To which I say: Hell yes. Cars don’t belong on the streets of big cities, and we should do everything in our power to get rid of them.
You can’t stop crazy. But you can reduce the number of people allowed to drive their 4,000 pound bumachines into city parks, along city beaches, past playgrounds, and alongside the sidewalks of the most pedestrian-packed places in the nation. If we banned cars from every city in the US tomorrow, we would stop vehicular terrorism overnight — and save thousands of lives.
