The Media Owes Boston an Apology
Mental Recession ^ | 04/19/2013

Posted on 04/19/2013 1:02:02 PM PDT by rustyweiss74

In the April edition of the Blaze Magazine, the question was asked of the media, why have American journalists “chosen to embrace Islam and defend it to the hilt against any perceived form of defamation”?

The fact that we haven’t answered that question twelve years after the murder of thousands of innocents on September 11th, shows that we have failed to deter the American media’s anti-American agenda. And by extension, we have failed the people of Boston.

And for that, we owe the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing a sincere apology.

Nowhere has our failure to hold the American media accountable for providing cover to our enemies been more prevalent than this terrible week.

Completely devoid of facts, liberal journalists set out to respond to the terrorist attacks as being perpetrated by right-wingers, conservatives, or Second Amendment supporters.

We were told it was right-wingers marking the anniversary of Columbine, or the birthday of Hitler.

We were told it was anti-government groups upset about Tax Day.

And we were told it had to be a “right-wing nutjob”, marking the location of the original Tea Party.

What the media failed to do however, was to identify radical Islam as a possible suspect.

The media owes conservatives and the Tea Party an apology, but that will never happen.

Never happen. There is no shame. When the White Hut says “jump”, the media says “how high”. (or should I say, how low?)

This is just a blog.

Your blog, in fact. You’ve been pimping it exclusively.

Why have you excerpted your own blog?
Why is it posted as News?

The leftist US media are aiding and abetting the radical islamists.

If SPLC were an unbiased watchdog group without an agenda themselves our news media would be classified as a 'hate group'.

If the SPLC won't then we certainly should.

Amazing how a single teenager has shut down a major city and turned it into an armed police state. A few more terror incidents and we really will turn back the clock to 1984.

No matter how many atrocities the Muzzies commit, the toads in the "media" always whine and say you can't blame all Islamists. They will say that the murderer was "a lone wolf" and his actions shouldn't be held against ALL Muzzies. Hmmmm!

I wonder why those maggots don't feel the same way about gun owners. Currently, all gun owners and the NRA are being blamed for Newtown, Aurora, etc. Commie lib DemocRATS make me sick.

“The media owes conservatives and the Tea Party an apology, but that will never happen.”

I read an interesting article on FR that posited that for 200 years Christian civilization has done the rational thing; whatever that was. We are still not in utopia. Therefore, doing the rational thing is the wrong thing. Liberals do exactly the opposite of the rational thing because THAT will lead us to utopia.

It's more than that, it is an enemy.

.... "The fact that we haven’t answered that question twelve years after the murder of thousands of innocents on September 11th, shows that we have failed to deter the American media’s anti-American agenda. And by extension, we have failed the people of Boston. "

.... I think it could be argued that at this point the President has had his momentum of his issues temporarily bumped into the gutter .... The above observation stated by The Blaze is a serious question that needs to be answered. To quote Rahm Emanuel as he betrayed the Liberal philosophy to the rest of the country .... he said "... Never let a Crisis go to waste!"

... This country has been rocked out of its slumber once again ..... And this crisis is exactly what is needed to reinforce some foundational principles into the nations psyche. The conservative talkers as well as some media savvy people need to fuel the momentum immediately before this administration buries current events and questions being asked off of the headlines and resurrects their agendas momentum that was high just a few days ago.

..... Carpe Momentum .... Seize the Moment.

Well then, 79% of Boston has at least one thing in common with the killers, they supported Barack Obama. As far as I am concerned those 79% are accessories to the death and destruction of the marathon victims. One of the things they loved about Obama is his inclusion and protection of Islam, they still will.

>all muslims are not terrorists<

.
But when the chips are down the overwhelming majority of muslims will side with their terrorist co-religionists — they may not pull the trigger, but they will pass the ammo.

They have to show solidarity if they believe in the Book of Hatred a.k.a the Koran.

“Blog pimp postings—a little above a troll, a little under a vanity.”

I’ve written a few “vanities” but never expressing an opinion and have always posted them in “chat”. Asking questions about my computer or taxes (lots of good opinions on F.R.) or recently a religious question, which I put in the religion section. Last year I did write a vanity (with pictures) when the adoption of our two children became final on May 22. I was just so happy, I couldn’t help myself.

I am surprised we haven’t heard a peep from Damon and Affleck. You would think the big mouths would be making a statement in support of their now famous fellow alumni, Dzhokhar. What is it a jihadist training ground posing as a place of higher learning?
