Skip to comments.Harris-Perry: Bombersí Muslim Faith As Relevant To Bombing As Ben Affleck Movies About Violence...

Making the point that the Tsarnaev brothers Muslim faith at the moment bears little relevance to the investigation into the brothers decision to attack the Boston Marathon last week, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry observed that Tsarnaevs faith is about as relevant to the investigation right now as are Ben Affleck movies about violent events in Boston. Her panel guests agreed and added that Americans have to otherize violent actors in order to absolve themselves from responsibility for or connection to their violence.
We dont really know, said Harris-Perry, throwing her hands up about the discussion into the Tsarnaevs motives. The younger brother, hes getting all kinds of tweets from his friends. I think part of the answer is that its still an open question.
They dont have the privilege of being anonymous they, speaking of people of color or other minorities we dont know yet, but we fill in the blanks, said Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson. We fill in the blanks with what makes us feel the most comfortable that this was an exceptional, extraordinary case that happened because they are this.
I keep wondering: is it possible that there would ever be a discussion like, oh, this is because of Ben Affleck and the connection between Boston and movies about violence? Harris-Perry asked. And, of course, the answer is no.
Given that theyre Chechen, given that they are literally Caucasian, our very sense of connection to them is this framed up notion of, like, Islam making them into something that is non-[unintelligible], Harris-Perry continued.
The point is that its important to say, that is not us, Dyson agreed. We want to demonize the other. We have to distance it from the dominant culture.
Watch the clip below via MSNBC:
I think she's going to fit in perfectly over at PMS-NBC
Yup! Another liberal retard.
Harris Perry is a stooge idiot. They were/are muslims. They bombed people. Its what they do. Deal with it.
If I defend them, maybe they’ll kill me last.
And I refuse to enter into a politically correct suicide pact with some over inflated intellectual, who probably has a body guard...she can in fact pound sand!
She said two of the big three overused words by the zombie yoots: “like” and “literally.” The exception was the lack of “amazing.”
The leftists had two responses ready following the conclusion of this episode.
If the bombers turned out to be muslims leftists would condemn their political opponents for demonizing and marginalizing islam.
If they weren't muslim leftists planned to demonize and marginalize their political opponents.
What does it take to mangle a person’s mind as completely as this? Is logic and/or reason becoming extinct?
You are so right. On the rare occasions when I tune into, say, the Morning Joe show, usually for the schadenfreude of something like the failed gun control bill, the fear and loathing is bright in their faces and in their voices.
"We must tolerate and even embrace those who commit violence in the name of evil because they will hurt us so badly one day unless we can convince them of our love..."
That is the message of everything they say and do.
ARGO was all about the Islamic takeover of the Iranian revolution and their crimes against America
These people disgust me
You Ignorant Slut!
You are shallower than a dry riverbed.....
Even if they do kill you last, you’re still dead.
FW said it best:
“the fear and loathing is bright in their faces and in their voices.”
Pandering to save their asses...or so they think.
Just for kicks, they next time you run into some straight guy who “supports gay marriage”, ask them point blank if they’d let a dude hump them.
Then laugh at their freak out and tell them they’re a hypocrite.
Michael Savage nailed it years ago, “Liberalism Is A Mental Disease!”
“Given that theyre Chechen, given that they are literally Caucasian, our very sense of connection to them is this framed up notion of, like, Islam making them into something that is non-[unintelligible],”
That is most definitely a killing-two-birds use of the word ‘unintelligible’.
Sitting here trying to figure out how these people get from point A to point Z while skipping everything else in between gives me a headache. I don’t know what world they live in or how they ever got into the positions of power in a country founded by GREAT THINKERS.
