Backpedal-palooza: Left no longer wants to speculate about bombersí motives
Twitchy ^

Posted on 04/20/2013 5:31:06 AM PDT by chessplayer

It feels like only yesterday when lefties were falling all over themselves to determine the motivations of those responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing.

Oh, wait. It was only yesterday. Strange, then, how the tides have turned. Since learning that the suspected bombers are Chechen Muslims and not white Tea Partyers (sorry, Michael Moore), suddenly the Left is no longer interested in focusing on motive:

MSM storylines before we find out a terrorist is Muslim:

They are Tea Party racists who are inflamed by Rush Limbaugh and Christian teachings to murder children on Hitler’s birthday.

MSM storyline after we find out a terrorist is Muslim:

Poor, innoncent Muslims in America are scared to death that Tea Party racists are going to use this lone wolf terrorist attack, which isn’t based on anything, to go on an anti-Muslim progrom.

"Our reaction to terrorism shouldn't be predicated on the demography of the terrorists.

What he really means is that we should ignore the fact that both of these Muslim terrorists are registered Democrats.

They don’t want to know because the bombing does not foster their anti-gun and pro-immigration programs. The weapon was a crockpot and the killers were here because of the immigration policies of that crackpot that Bostonians elected year after year to the Senate.

Its time to proceed politically with legislation designed to limit immigration and asylum cases. The massive Muslim immigration into the West has been a catastrophe. Politicians who resist immigration reform and restriction must be clearly identified and held accountable.

Watching CNN really turns my stomach. They are bending over backwards to make up excuses for why the younger brother had done this. All his friends said that he was so pure, so kind, so American! Obviously he was tricked into doing what he had done. It must have been his older brother that did it to him!!

What Leftist nonsense...

Funny how the MSM is no longer speculating on why the terrorists bombed the Boston Marathon.

They just can’t seem to speak the words “For the Greater Glory of allah” that the infidels had to be killed.

We are going to learn that the muslims terrorists and terrorist mosque were well know to police but due to the current administration (both in Boston and Washington) were left alone.

That the muslim terrorists and all around them were big obama supporters.

That the failure to enforce CURRENT immigration law contributed to the bombings.

I wonder if the Republicans will use bombing victims as props as a rebuttal to an obama speech to achieve their political ends? Or would they have more class than that?

In a week, it'll be anti-immigrant bullying that pushed the younger brother into following along with the older brother's plan. A double victim, and obviously a sure sign that we need to address even more bullying and racist opinions in schools.

Prior to this terrorism the FBI under Obama would be putting the callers on a watch list for daring to call Muslims terrorists. But now that I think of it the FBI has I assume done exactly that now in this instance by keeping the list of those callers for future hate crime and Civil Rights violations prosecutions.

AP Bans Word “Islamist”
April 5, 2013
By Sara Noble

free speech limitations

CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the unindicted co-conspriators in a terror finance trial (Holy Land Foundation) and a Hamas/Brotherhood front organization, has been lobbying the Associated Pravda to drop the term, “Islamist.”

The AP did it! They have discontinued use of the term “Islamist,” as “a synonym for Islamic fighters, militants, extremists or radicals.”

They banned “illegal immigrant” last week.

Once the press starts banning words, there will be no end. Are book burnings next?

Pretty soon, no one will know what anyone is talking about. There just won’t be the words, literally, to adequately describe a thing.

If PC isn’t an infringement on free speech, I don’t know what is.

Once again demonstrating that most of the “talking heads” in the media are on the side of the enemies of this country. It’s no wonder that so many call them the Enemedia.

In one of Travis McGee’s pieces he has a scene where a media personality was killed. The blurb that was attached to the scope photo said “The Media Lies, The Media Dies.” I sometimes think he’s being prophetic and I hope it never comes to pass that it becomes reality. But... He could very well be correct.

The narrative of the leftists is that the war on terror is actually just a war of non-white i.e. brown people, simply because white Americans like to kill brown people. Islamo-fascist terrorism has nothing to do with it. Yes, these nitwits seriously believe that's the whole reason.

That's why you had dopes like Michael Moron exult that the terrorists were "white" therefore proving his point. Or he thought he proved some point. He didn't prove anything other than he's still a moron. The truth is the war on terror has been almost totally a war on islamo-fascists of whatever color. Like the savages who murdered the people in Boston, most Islamo-fascists have been white. Who cares? During WWII we killed a lot of white Nazis (Germans) and non-white fascists (Japanese). We don't care about the color of their skin...if they try to murder Americans, we want them dead.

“My liberal friends....”

You have liberal friends? You need to start running with a better crowd.

I will admit I have a brother who is a lib. Luckily he lives about 200 miles away and I only see him for family get togethers and such. It is kinda fascinating to sit back and watch him pontificate on anything and everything. Currently doing a study on race relations in the South. But please, don't let me ask any questions. Or anybody else for that matter. Libs prefer to go on and on and not be asked for any clarification. It screws up their whole train of thought apparently. It's kinda like watching rats in a maze. Or watching weeds grow. Liberalism is most definitely a mental disease.

Well said, and, sadly, quite accurate.

This morning, the husband has been watching his daily dose of the DVR’d FAUX NEWS morning show. Our usual drill is that he watches that while I catch up on news at my computer in the next room. So I catch bits and pieces sometimes.

Seems they were all over what could have radicalized these young men who were enjoying such a good life here. I wanted to scream at them, “They are/were mohammedans, morons! No need to look for any other info.”

No need to be amazed. There are so few of us who really are paying attention that they feel emboldened to keep spewing the same lies.

Since Obama publicly said that this chapter is over, everyone is encouraged to go back to the important stuff like “American Idol” and which celeb slutard is pregnant and by whom, and how great she looks in her latest trollop gown.
