Oh, what a bunch of BS.

These guys have posted their motivations all over various social media sites: VK (a Facebook-like site) and YouTube.

You can be sure that if a "right-wing extremist" had committed these crimes, Patrick would be screaming his head off about the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, etc.

Denial will be the end of us. This governor is either stupid or an accomplice.

Deval Patrick then said he would confer with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, formerly of the Church of What’s Happening Now to get to the bottom of this mystery.

David Axelrod was researching Patrick’s words to see if there were any more sound bites he could reuse for O.

Reports say they were bamboozled by the bombers.

Hmmmm, what was the motivation of the terrorists, hmmmm. It's just on the tip of my tongue, I just can't seem to grasp it.

Oh wait, there it is. To kill and maim as many Americans as possible! Just like all terrorists!!!

The Governor has no idea of the motivation of these “two fellows”?

“two fellows”?

no idea of why?

The deliberate obtuseness of the Progressive establishment knows no bounds. They ought to be ashamed but they are likely incapable of feeling shame over ANYTHING they do to protect and advance their agenda.

Of COURSE he knows why.

It's because these brothers are a Racist, White, Christian NRA members who smoke cigarettes, denies global warming, wants to clear-cut forests, loves George W. Bush and Sarah Palin, attended many Tea Party events (where they was busy being racist), loves the Sequestration, hates illegal aliens, are Birthers and Truthers, hates unions, were studying fracking in school, and drank Big Gulp sodas.

Deep down, this fool of a governor knows the truth but admitting it would shatter the false altar of “diversity” at which he worships.

Everyone knows the cause: Islam. Our priest even said it at Mass! Let the liberals deny it and hopefully more and more Americans will begin to realize how deeply unhinged they are.

The governor of Massachusetts says he has no idea what motivated the terrorists

How about "kill the infidels?"
Another option would be "false flag."
Or both. Take your pick.

re: “The governor of Massachusetts says he has no idea what motivated the terrorists who exploded two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.”

He also had no idea why Hitler did what he did, nor why Stalin did what he did, or why Osama bin Laden ordered the 9/11 attack.

“Hey, they are all a mystery to me - go figure! Some people are just whacked. Now, that Timothy McVeigh guy, he was a right wing, Dittohead, terrorist extremist and we all KNOW why that nutjob, Christian, KKKer, homophobe did what he did. But, some cases are just unsolvable.” (sarc.)

We know the drill from here. Just follow the Ft Hood template. No one will be able to talk about the incident because it is under investigation, which will go on for years. The American public has such a short attention span, it will be forgotten in a few weeks.

Club #1. Moslems don't think non-believers, non-Moslem infidels, are innocent men, women and children.

Yeah, and the FBI saw NOTHING when asked to investigate Tamerlan Tsarmaev in 2011 despite his best friend, Brandan Mess being nearly decapitated.

This administration's 'hear/see/say no evil of Islam' narrative blinds the mayor, governor, entire security apparatus to our peril.

Two years ago Brandan Mess and two other men – Raphael Teken and Erik Weissman – were murdered on September 12, 2011. This video report posted @Waltham Patch.com on 9/12/2011 describes the scene on 9/12 as the victims "being found".

. . .timing which suggests the murders may have taken place hours earlier, perhaps on 9/11/2011, the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

Given the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev became a naturalized citizen on 9/11/2012, it's not a stretch to think the 9/11 anniversary played a significant role in their jihad dreams.

Deval Patrick made Massachusetts children convert to
Islam as part of school at the Mosque of the terrorists.

He claims he does not know, but he made the children
convert. All of them.

Maybe this will get through this lefty thick-heads.

Back in the early '90's some may remember that the terrorists blew a hole in the side of a french oil tanker called the Limbergh or something like that.

They got a couple of the guys and asked why they did it.

One of them responded, "Well, we'd of course, like to have had a US Navy ship. But that's ok. You're all infidels."

I guess that's my point.

We're ALL infidels that Islam just hasn't quite got around to butchering yet. YOU Gov Patrick. Your children, their children, their children, their children, your wife, her family, THEIR families, your friends, your teachers, in fact, being an American, EVERYONE you've ever known, are all just infidels.

You belong to the Dar al Harb - The House of war and the Koran tells these nut cases that the fighting won't end until the Dar al Harb (every blade of grass, stone, person, EVERYTHING nonmuslim) has been brought under the sway of Dar al Esslam (everything muslim).

The butchery is just fun and games - icing on the cake. According to Islam muslims can do no wrong torturing and killing infidels. After all, they're doing us this MASSIVE favor by saving us from our infidelitude and bringing us to Allah so everything's fair game.

THAT is why these nuts work so hard to brutalize everyone else in the world and have for almost 1500 years. BET ON IT!
