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...

I bet this turns out to be another false flag operation. At the very least it’ll be a provocateured event complete with a patsy or patsies from a group the gov’t wants to demonize/target.

If there is a sexual connotation to that, it seems to fit Bergan and Blitzer overexcited about the possibility of nailing a "right-winger".

Remember the "Beltway Sniper" incident where a disgruntled, right-wing white guy in a white box truck was shooting people more or less at random in Northern Virginia and Maryland?

Oh wait ...

That was a couple of black mohammedans, possibly homosexual, in a blue Chevy.

The leftist authorities and Leftist Big Media lied. Now Leftist Big Media is lying again. As usual ...

We should all know by now that in the liberal mind all who commit acts of atrocity are right-wingers regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion.

All who claim to help the needy, children, and moniorities are liberals.

Of course. The left is req1uired to blame righ wing patriots for every catastrophe. They know with absolute certainty that they and their fellow travellers are completely to blame but they cannot admit it. They must lie in order to keep up the appearance of innocence. The truth is leftists have been responsible for every act of terrorism for the past 20 years, including some notorious government interventions. The real enemy in this country is the one calling everyone else enemies.

I don’t know what or who to blame.
It’s Bush’s fault!
It’s because of the sequester.
The violent Tea Party did it or caused it by speaking uncivily.
Sarah Palin once drew a crosshair target on a map of Boston.
It is because of the right wing culture of hate!

I will just have to go with all of the above.

Peter Pooh can’t even read the news feeds - the suspect is a Saudi national. Those things are ‘almighty scarce’ in the TEA Party.

But, with American Presstitutes, it is always AGENDA UBER ALLES time. Thus we have another example of a presstitute braying the “Right Wing Haters” meme.

Boring.

The media doesn’t do as much damage as they think anymore. Not just us here on FR, but large chunk of the populace sees them for what they are now. And the internet has played a major role in that.My son in law was laughing the other day, and said they need to change MSNBC to CBNSM, because the truth was always 180 degrees from what they reported..

Not only wanting to focus on right wing terrorism, but blatantly equating Islamic terrorism with right wing groups:

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...

Yeap, rewriting group equivalencies.

This bombing was not against a US government facility, and therefore it can be concluded that “right wingers” as understood by the left, probably are not involved. There would be no gain from killing innocents, and only innocents, if the goal was to send some anti-government message, for right, OR left wing domestic malcontents.

Al-Qaida’s signature has never been remote detonation, they favor suicide bombings. The only bombing that I can think of that included remote detonation, that was blamed on Islamists, was the Spanish train bombings. I still am not sure about the conclusion there.

So, by process of elimination, this one seems like a retaliation, perhaps for the collateral innocents killed by American drones in the ME. Quite possibly it could have to do with either Iraq, Lybia, Egypt or Syria, if not Afghanistan. If a Saudi is involved, I doubt seriously it has to do with Saudi interests.

To me, all the evidence points toward a retaliation for what are perceived to be American misdeeds- the death of innocents abroad.
