Sorry, Media, No White Tea Partiers Were Involved
Investor's Business Daily ^ | April 19, 2012 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 04/19/2013 4:13:03 PM PDT by raptor22

Media Bias: There's palpable dismay at outlets such as MSNBC and Salon that the Boston Marathon bombers were radicalized young men from Chechnya and not angry white males from the vast right-wing conspiracy.

Shortly after Monday's tragedy in Boston, David Sirota of Salon Magazine penned a piece titled "Let's hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American."

His hopes were dashed when the suspects turned out to be Muslim brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose family origins are in Chechnya, the rebellious Russian region that is a breeding ground for terrorists.

In 2002, about 40 armed Chechen separatists took more than 900 hostages at Moscow's Dubrovka Theatre, a siege that resulted in the deaths of 130 hostages and all of the Chechen terrorists.

The world also watched in horror in 2004 as armed Islamic separatist militants, some Chechen, occupied a school in Beslan, North Ossetia, and killed more than 380 people.

By all accounts, the Tsarnaev brothers were fully Americanized, permanent residents attending U.S. schools. But as such they were the perfect "sleepers," terrorists in waiting, ripe for recruiting, particularly considering their place of origin.

Leftists such as Sirota bemoan "profiling" and "stereotyping" while they engage in a variety all their own. Sirota complained that the likes of Timothy McVeigh are treated as lone wolves while Muslim terrorists are treated as existential threats, that "white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted" for their acts.

Islamofascist terrorists, and the regimes and groups that support them, do constitute an existential threat. There have not been many Swedish terrorists; and what Sirota calls profiling we would call a description of the suspects. We wonder what part of "death to America" Sirota and his colleagues do not understand.

This administration intense scrutiny’s of right wing groups led to this Islam travesty. Islam has co opted this administration to the point they ignore the real threat. We are the enemy. We need to accept this fact. Our lives have changed. I use to be a patriotic American (joined the service in the mid 60s) Now I appear to be the target of the Government’s view of suspects.

After pointing the finger all week at Right Wing Conservative T.E.A. Partiers with their hated of the tax-man (government) with their preferred pressure-cooker bomb, I just shook my head in digust this morning when I heard one CNN activist claim, you can’t blame a whole group (muslims) for the actions of a few (terrorist).

After the Benghazi cover-up, this cover-up will be a piece of cake.

I predict there will be ZERO coverage by the ABCNNBCBS monolith of obama ass-kissing talking heads.

After all, only WHITE PEOPLE DIED...

Imagine what the media would do if the bombers wore RA caps. I am surprised MSNBC did not photoshop the insignia onto the caps.

Social Media show one or both were big Obama fans!!

They are Democrat Terrorists just like Obama friend, Bill Ayres.

I think I read where one of the brothers had just gotten his US citizenship last year. ...could have been an Obama voter.

Not so fast.
I hear they drink a lot of tea in Chechnya.

There just has to be a connection. Give the media 24 hours at least, they’ll find one.

But take heart, liberals. If there are enough mass murders, eventually one of them will be by a conservative. Then you can rejoice!

A nation’s security contacted the Holder run FBI about these guys.

They even had the state press doing all it could to get the public focused away form their philosophical allies.

This is Fast and Furious 2.0.

Yeah. Cavuto reported today that “the teenager” got his U.S. citizenship on 09-11-12. The anniversary of 9/11 and the day Americans were being murdered in Benghazi. Ironic.

I find it odd that we rarely hear what is their religion. If they were NOT Muslim, we would be told that ad nauseum that they were not Muslims. Chechnya is overwhelmingly Muslim. Why can't FACTS be reported?

Not a lot of difference between these terrorists and Obama’s friend Bill Ayers, except that they targeted ordinary citizens whereas Ayers & friends were trying to kill members of the US military, Pentagon workers, and cops.

“The world also watched in horror in 2004 as armed Islamic separatist militants, some Chechen, occupied a school in Beslan, North Ossetia, and killed more than 380 people.”

Thanks for that. Let’s add that these Chechen scum raped children as young as 10 before the Russian special forces finally stormed the building. As the teachers and children tried to escape during the gun battle, the Chechan cowards shot hundreds of babies and children to death.

If Lawrence “I’m A Nut” O’Donnell planted “a big slobbering wet kiss” on Chrissie Matthews, it surely wasn’t on his lips. I’d say a couple feet lower would be in the right area.

Why can't FACTS be reported?

Because facts are very inconvenient to liberals. Facts blow liberals propaganda right out of the water so facts must be avoided at all cost.

“The left is being intellectually dishonest when it condemns bigotry and extremism on the right as it ignores the threat of Islamofascism and its recruits.”

This should read: The left is being intellectually dishnest when it condemns bigotry and extremism on the right as it engages in leftist bigotry and extremism.

I hope this very fact makes people realize that there are really evil philosophies afoot.

As I learned in a recent seminar by David Grossman, this terror event was worse than "horror".

The muslim terrorists used the most vicious forms of cruelty, mostly toward women and children, and did this over an extended period of time. Protracted suffering was their sick goal, and they succeeded, most sadly.

“I heard one CNN activist claim, you can’t blame a whole group (muslims) for the actions of a few (terrorists).”

CNN might as well change its name from CNN to the
Progressive Ministry of Propaganda.

They continue to claim they’re unbiased, objective “journalists”, yet they blatantly behave like the lap dogs of the Democrat Party that they are.

It would be more appropriate that they wear worker’s caps with little read stars on the brims.

IMHO
