Isaac Chotiner explains that the expressed desire/hope/prediction of many liberals that the Boston bombers turn out to be white non-Muslims was based on a reasoned reactions to a society that is still full of racism and bigotry and that in times of national emergency or stress, double standardsone form of that dreaded disease called political correctnessserve very useful purposes. He writes that if the bomber had turned out to be white, then the bombing would have been treated as an isolated incident and that if the bombers were militia-men type extremists, then you wouldnt have seen racial profiling and such.

Did you notice that when liberals were talking about white terrorists, they didnt mean just any old white terrorists? Liberals were predicting (hoping for) militia-men who were on the right and inspired by Tax Day. Whites, like most large groups of people, are a varied bunch. So are white terrorists. Most of the Occupy movement-inspired bombing conspirators in Cleveland were white. Kathy Boudin, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn were all white. Somehow I dont think that Isaac Chotiners liberal friends were hoping that the Boston bombers were deranged fans of the Occupy movement.
If liberals really were hoping that the Boston bombing would be a one-off, then they, in all their deep commitment to tolerance, would have hoped that the bombers were left-wing extremists. Remember how, after the Gabby Giffords shooting, we were all told by the president to tone down our rhetoric and how a New York Times entertainer suggested that Sarah Palin had contributed to the climate that led to the shooting? The guy who shot Giffords was just a loon whose obsessions had nothing to do with partisan politics, but that did not stop liberals....

Each time I see Schumer or whatever shill-du-jour they trot out to spew this nonsense, I can’t help thinking there’s a little bird tweeting in their head saying “Yeah! That’s the ticket” in a congratulatory pat on the head even John Lovitz would be proud of.
There. Fixed it.
