Skip to comments.Why Did This Act Of Terrorism Occur? MEDIA COPY GUIDE
Posted on 04/15/2013 4:32:10 PM PDT by Lazamataz
Predictably, the American Pravda Press immediately began conjecturing that the tragic terrorist act in Boston, at the Marathon, was possibly caused by 'right wing extremists'.
Quoted Peter Bergen: ""One of the things that I'd be looking at, once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used. If it, for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, sort of a signature of al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get hold of now, it might be some other kind of right wing extremists..."We've also seen other extremist groups, right wing groups, attacking, for instance, trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade."
On other parts of the web, liberal whackadoodles were trying to pin this, not on the three suspects in custody, but Sarah Palin, saying:
I consider myself a helpful fellow. So in that spirit, I offer MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN the following blame assignment list:
The causes of this terrorist attack are, as follows.....
- White entitlement.
- Gun ownership.
- Cigarette sales.
- Global warming.
- Clearcutting of forests.
- The BP Oil Spill.
- George W. Bush.
- Sarah Palin.
- Tea Partiers.
- Tea Party Racism.
- The failure to embrace 'undocumented workers'.
- The failure to reach out to Islam.
- Attempts to create a Mexican border fence.
- Mitch McConnells stubbornness.
- The NRA.
- Pro-US sentiments.
- John Boehner.
- False accusations of Democrat voter fraud.
- Wayne LaPierre.
- Keystone Pipeline.
- Big Gulp Sodas.
- Slavery prior to the American Civil War.
- Non-union workplaces and Right to Work states.
- Hostility to Native Americans.
- The Bible.
- Slow implementation of Obamacare.
- Republicans not caring about the unemployed.
- Gold bugs and Preppers.
- High capacity magazines.
- Violence against women.
- Rejection of Sharia law.
- Failing to make loans available to minorities.
- Unregulated internet.
- Free Republic.
- People who mocked Liberals who said rape would be preventable with whistles, and vomiting and urinating on yourself.
- Opposition to post-birth abortion.
There you are, my media propaganda friends. Fifty one fresh, crispy ways to blame the right for the actions of terrorists, who will undoubtably actually turn out to be Islamic extremists.
Your list didn’t include “workplace related violence” or “youtube videoz!!!”.
A 30 round clip did it.
I propose that the Weather Underground be #1 on the list, Black Panthers #2.
I stand in shame for missing these important reasons.
I have covered High Capacity Magazines, unless your intent was to specify the elusive ‘30 round clip’.
You also didn’t include “opposition to belief in man caused global warming”.
I think someone’s twinkie supply just ran out.
Yes, the media always seems to be blaming this clip for everything. Rarely do they mention the magazine.
Perfect,, and exactly true.
I’d add “failure of all Americans to fully embrace diversity”, with ‘diversity’ being spoken in a high falsetto.
I think He still has some or it would have been FAR worse.
Fox News and conservative talk radio.
Then, if that was your intent, I give you a bow, and concede your point.
I see that Karl Rove didn’t make the list this time. Perhaps due to his double-agent status?
What about the most important reason: racism!
You forgot Rush! He’s going to be SO disappointed.
