CNN Analyst Peter Bergen: Bombings in Boston Were 'Likely Right-Wingers'
Pundit Press ^ | 4/15/13 | Aurelius

Posted on 04/15/2013 1:49:51 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

On CNN, Peter Bergen stated that the terrorist bombings in Boston was "likely right-wing" extremists.

Here's the quote: "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."

Elsewhere, conspiracy theorists were happy to pin the explosions on conservatives...

Of course.

Boston is well known for its extreme right wing groups - being bright red on the voting map and all.

The left wants it to be a “right winger”
Even if it isn’t, the word is out there and will be repeated endlessly. The damage is done.

Whoever did this deserves to die. I’ll bet MA doesn’t have a death penalty.

Sorry to disappoint him but I am at home doing laundry and do not know how to make a bomb and I would never want to make a bomb! I am a right winger! I wouldn’t harm a darn fly.

To any right-wing extremist trolling this board (which there aren’t any), the Boston Marathon is a crappy target. There are better ones.

Just where in the hell in Boston would a “right-wing” extremist be exactly? Where?

Their city, their airport specifically, was forever tarnished as a bunch of incompetent boobs on September 11, 2001 when they allowed a dozen or more terrorist to board some of their planes.

And a decade+ later, a few months after Benghazi to boot on its anniversary, and this leftwing asswipe is saying “right wing extremist?”

I guess we’re gonna have to go through the “it was the video” thingy again after the left embarasses itself - again.

Thank you Peter Bergan you partisan, propaganda spewing political hack pretending to be a journalist. Yea, you are ‘objective’ all right, your biggest fan right now is the extremist left which now has cover thanks to your jumping to conclusions before the facts.

Dam ideologues pretending to be journalists.

Funny how they are not held accountable for their premature emissions. Yet, should in the very unlikely event it was some kind of doing from the Right or some reclusive suicidal nut ball, they would probably get a ticker tape parade.

Well, obviously the bomber has to be an evil rightwing racist sexist fascist bigot homophobe since Boston is a liberal city and the Boston Marathon is a liberal event and typically marathoners are either skinny liberal men or nonmenstruating feminists or liberal gay activists and who all shop at Whole Foods afterward while cheering the death of Margaret Thatcher.

Too easy.

Muneer Awad thanks Peter Bergen for downplaying the Muslim Brotherhood!

Listen to this article. Powered by Odiogo.com

Wow! Talk about being a shill for an Islamic supremacist group. Last night on CNN’s Piers Morgan show Peter Bergen was briefly questioned about the danger of the Muslim Brotherhood. Muneer Awad, the director of CAIR Oklahoma then tweeted a thanks to him and called critics fear-mongers. Keep in mind, Bergen was ONLY asked about the Muslim Brotherhood.

PETER BERGEN, CNN NATIONAL SECURITY ANALYST: Well, I don’t think they’re very dangerous at all, piers. You know, this is a group that’s been around since the 1920s, certainly when it was founded in opposition to the British and certainly it had a terrorist ring in the 1950s, but over time, this is a group that is increasingly just engaged in normal politics.

Hey, if they were able to find one or two devices and safely explode them after the fact, why in sam hill could they not have found the first two BEFORE the event?

But, of course, they block off the front of the White House so nothing will happen to Nobama.

I am rather steamed.
