Blame the White Man: Leftist racial profiling was thwarted again by reality

There was no joy in liberal land when the prime suspect in the Times Square bomb plot turned out to be a Pakistani-American. The right-wing terrorist boogeyman vanished. Leftist racial and ethnic profiling failed again.
The widely distributed videotape of a lighter-complected suspect near the attack scene - almost universally reported as a "white man" - raised expectations in some quarters that this could be the work of right-wing extremists, maybe even - oh dare it be hoped? - a Tea Party Republican.

Even Bloomberg has gone back to looking for “the real salt shakers”.
Now the media is busy explaining the bomber’s possible (and quite understandable/s) motives.

The "white male" in his 40's. According to Bloomberg, someone who may have been influenced by the taxed enough already party, and possibly not want his or her body becoming property of the United States government.

(I served and protected my country for 31 years. Progressives spent that time trying to destroy it.)
I get a chuckle out of the mental image of a ROP member pissed off about 0bamacare as was suggested by the honorable mayor of NYC. If it seemed like a good theory at the time, why is it not a good theory now?

Bloomberg really displayed his ignorance, bias, and anti-Americanism with that stupid statement.

We should proceed as if the bomb had detonated....for it was only ‘dumb luck’ that saved dozens of American lives.
...unless of course it was a set-up to probe our defense.
For example, now they know they can’t use ‘throw-away’ phones with impunity.

Exactly. The State Controlled Media would have it no other way.

(hey, hey, ho, ho, the political class has got to go)
I am learning to speak progressive:
White male in a white van = 2 black males, one Muslim and one illegal alien.
White male teabagger upset by the healthcare bill = Government approved dual citizenship Pakistani Muslim registered Democrat who has no problem boarding international flights.

(This is my tag line. There are many like it, but this one is mine.)
The editorial is oh, so true. And reads like Wesley Pruden had a word or two in it.
The poll is hard to answer: Are you satisfied with the government’s handling of the Times Square incident?
Given that NYPD is part of the city’s government, I’d say they did a greta job. Did the feds? Apparently they did manage to catch Shahzad before he left the country>
Did our POTUS, the NYC Mayor, the Secy of DHS come across well and inspire confidence? Hell, no.

Poor literacy in the headline. It wasn’t “racial profiling” by liberals that failed so much as it was ideological projectionism that failed them.

I wonder if whites will ever wake up? We and our nation are under attack. They aim to destroy it and us.

"It wasnt racial profiling by liberals"
If language (Hispanic) is a race, ideology can easily be a race too.

New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, prompted by CBS News reader Katie Couric, speculated that the culprit was "homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something." MSNBC's Chris Matthews and NBC News "terrorist analyst" Roger W. Cressey dwelt long on the idea of the bomber being someone with a "right-wing" agenda. Geraldo Rivera seemed fixated on the idea that the bomber was a "white man."
Thanks to the Washington Times for publishing this.
