The Washington Post tried to turn the camera lens around on the violent Tsarnaev brothers. Their arrogant liberal assumption: the real question is what this says about us backwards Americans, not about the bombers. The headline in huge type was Who do we think they are? The answer says a lot about who we are.
What we are, apparently, is a sad gathering of Islamophobes, because the story is a collection of quotes from Muslim activists and authors who tweeted please dont be a Muslim and feared that Muslim assailants would spur Americans to practice discrimination or retaliation or shame. Even after the Tsarnaevs were found, the Post reported Brown Muslims were relieved:
Embedded in the misunderstanding [of Caucasian Muslims] is the stereotype that to be a Muslim, one must be a darker-skinned person of Middle Eastern descent.
Asra Nomani, a Muslim writer [and former Wall Street Journal reporter], noted that some members of the larger Muslim American communities with Middle East or South Asian roots expressed relief when they saw photos of the accused bombers.
Brown Muslims were like, Whew, its not one of us,? she said. And then people felt that would protect Arabs or Indians or whomever from being targeted. Its like a sigh of relief.
That "Brown Muslim" quote was put in bold type inside the Style section. The first paragraphs of this mass psycho-analysis by reporters Krissah Thompson and Michelle Boorstein suggest that apparently, Americans cant evaluate who the Tsarnaevs are without satisfying some deep psychological need to police our in-group boundaries.....

Yeah that’s right, its OUR fault that these terrorist scum bags put bombs next to 8 year olds..its because we just don’t understand Muslims..guess what leftist a-holes..I understand them perfectly..everything I need to know about Islam I learned on 9/11 and I continue to learn every time they blow up a school, a bus, or a Marathon
We don’t think that they are bloodthirsty, murdering, pedophile, women beaters.
We know they are.
There’s a reason Mark Levin calls it ‘The Washington Compost’.
Sorry Tim, all out of guilt. Maybe next time...
Tsarnaev family was on welfare:
I see the have no choice but to revive the ‘blame Bush’ meme since it worked so well for them.
Add that toad Whorealdo jumping on the same ban wagon.
This whole story is getting more strange by the day.
Oh goodie..so that means WE the taxpayer funded the terrorist act that ruined so many lives
The Left is so predictable.
Their whole system of life revolves around violence. The fact they are not violent all the time doesn’t mean they won’t do it if they have the ability and they don’t fear reprisals by government or citizen resistance.
In the Koran, what is written later, supercedes what’s written earlier. The beginning is to be peaceful to Jews and Christians as people of the Book (Bible) but after they reject Mad Mo’s idea to blend all of their religions together, the rest of the book becomes violence towards Jews and Christians and all unbelievers (kaffir).
And of course, violence towards each other and your wive(s). Mad Mo - there’s a reason why he’s called that, he was violent and nuts (and possessed at times).
Well, yes, but not in the way that the authors are thinking. What does it say when professional journalists are more interested in promoting a political narrative than reporting the truth? What does it say about the rush to blame conservatives and the excuses for the terrorists that are now being made because they don't fit that narrative? What does it say about pundits who are perfectly happy to see American blood running in the street if it helps them smear their political opponents?
So yes, I agree with the authors - who they wanted it to be speaks volumes about who they are.
Undoubtedly a variation of Tamerlane, aka Timur the Lame, the vicious 14th century Islamic warlord who killed around 5% of the world’s population.
What you need to know is islam and liberalism are the same satanic cult. The WashPo agrees with bombing Americans.
Pray for America to Wake Up
I posted last night that the reason why liberals flock to support Muslims so much is because liberals despise America just as much as the Muslims do..today on The Five they talked about a PEW Research Poll in 2007 which they polled Muslims living in America asking them if they ever see justification to do suicide bombings..13 percent said YES..and these are Muslims living in America..we better hope that people start waking up because what Muslims want is a total control over America so they can have their caliphate
If being pissed off about a couple of Islamoterrorisst blowing up two young ladies and an 8 year old boy makes me an “Islamophobe”, so be it. At least I’m not a braindead Amerophobe writing for a piece of crap rag like the Washington Post.
Not an islamaphobe, just a realist. I can’t help seeing what I’m seeing. Islam is not a religion of peace, far from it.
I am so f***ing sick of the left. Can we just take it out back and get it over with already?
Then they go to leftist universities here that teach them that everything bad they believe about America and Israel is ‘true’. Chomsky..Bill Ayers...and hundreds of others.
Nigerians have been slaughtered by Islamic terrorists. Are they at fault too?? Silly Liberal “logic”!
