Salon: Letís hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American (mega projectile barf alert)
salon via DRUDGE ^ | 4-17-13 | David Sirota, whiteguilt liberal idiot

Posted on 04/17/2013 8:59:04 AM PDT by envisio

As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.----

.....“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation,” writes author Tim Wise. “White privilege is knowing that if this bomber turns out to be white, the United States government will not bomb whatever corn field or mountain town or stale suburb from which said bomber came, just to ensure that others like him or her don’t get any ideas. And if he turns out to be a member of the Irish Republican Army we won’t bomb Dublin. And if he’s an Italian-American Catholic we won’t bomb the Vatican.”---

....Though FBI data show fewer terrorist plots involving Muslims than terrorist plots involving non-Muslims, America has mobilized a full-on war effort exclusively against the prospect of Islamic terrorism. Indeed, the moniker “War on Terrorism” has come to specifically mean “War on Islamic Terrorism,” involving everything from new laws like the Patriot Act, to a new torture regime, to new federal agencies like the Transportation Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security, to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to mass surveillance of Muslim communities.

Actually, DHS has tried to do that already, long before this bomb went off.

Nothing like another fact-free screed from Salon.

The truth is a foreign thing to these people. They will never voluntarily believe that the people who carried out 911 are evil and that their thinking is common to most, if not all, of the citizens of their kind.

Bombers and cop-killers Billy Ayres and Bernadine Dorn are White Americans.

Who cares what color they are?

I want to know their motive.

White Christian Conservatives are already considered terrorists by this government. His argument is invalid.

It is more like “let’s tell every possible lie over and over again to convince low information voters that it was a white, Christian American. We hate those people so we want to blame them for everything.”

Another Obama cultist speaks nonsense. Maybe the bomber will turn out to be a white, environmentalist fudge packer.

“....white, Christian American. We hate those people...”

Don’t forget stupid. White males are stupid too. As seen in your average TV comercial, white people, especially males, are fumbling idiots that mess up everything.

And don’t forget Salon’s unspoken regret that the terrorist didn’t use “assault weapons” instead of IEDs.

And if he’s an Italian-American Catholic we won’t bomb the Vatican.”-—

The assumption being that if he was a Saudi Muslim we WOULD bomb Mecca? Yeah, it already happened that a bunch of (predominantly) Saudi Muslims killed 3,000 Americans - and SOMEHOW we restrained ourselves from bombing Mecca, or going to war with Saudi Arabia (a place that these nutballs thought was far too modern and western).

Instead we went after the nation that gave them direct aid and comfort and REFUSED to cooperate in handing over those who directed the attack (Afghanistan). And while we were at it, settled a few old scores by resuming a war that the belligerent was refusing to abide by the terms of the ceasefire (Iraq).

We went out of our way to say that we were not at war with Islam - and even went so far as to pretend they were a “religion of peace” (Islam means submission, not peace). We even elected a guy with an Islamic name not too long after.

How much credit do we get for all that? Zero. Apparently we are just THIS CLOSE to ignoring the Constitutional rights of Muslims, indiscriminately bombing Mecca and/or whatever sh*thole they come from, targeting their families, and building internment camps!

If they’re tried in MA, it won’t happen.

Don’t know if the Feds conduct executions.

I don't have the stomach to read the whole piece. But I don't want Obama to be able to use this as an excuse to start a war with Iran, Syria, Georgia, ... to show his “leadership”. So, in a sense, I agree.

What kind of twisted mind thinks like this? Perhaps this is the reason why we are where we are at this point in our nation’s history.

Who is the third person killed in the Marathon terrorism? The drive-bys have identified one boy and one woman. According to today’s WSJ, the third is a graduate student at Boston College, but remains unnamed. I’ll bet his name is not Smith.

The article is so shot-full of untruths and fallacies it’s difficult to know where to begin.

“To avoid duplicate posts, please search before posting. Use the published article title to prevent duplicates. The best method to search is to pick a key word or two from the title.”

Comes long before the 4-hour “guideline” in that thread. I guess some people just like to read the postings and skip the original article.

....Though FBI data show fewer terrorist plots involving Muslims than terrorist plots involving non-Muslims, . . .

Wait, What??? Fewer plots involving jihadis than non-muslims? On whose planet???

Timothy McVie - Yes, the Feds conduct executions (other than dropping a bomb from a drone onto an American Citizen - even though he deserved it)
