Itís Because They Want To Kill Us, Stupid
Newsreal ^ | 5-6-10 | Lori Ziganto

Posted on 05/06/2010 5:14:40 AM PDT by SJackson

The night the NYC car bomb attempt went down, I was so grateful that, once again, the diligence of the public and the swift action of the NYC Police thwarted yet another potential attack. Shortly thereafter, while still incredibly grateful obviously, I became angry. I’ve had it. Firstly, because the current strategy of homeland security seems to be “Hey, guys, we’ve totally unclenched our fists. We can haz cookie now?” Secondly, because the left and their media lackeys are not only dangerously naive, but also purposefully misleading.

They are so deeply invested in both political correctness and in their violent, racist “tea baggers” meme, it clouds all else. Even common sense and the security of our country. It was swiftly apparent that they were *wishing* that the failed bomber was a tea partier, so that they could further their lame narrative and continue to try to excuse Obama and his administration for their failures and utter incompetence. Gee, Obama, how is that “unclenching of fists” deal working out for you?

That night, Attorney General Holder said “It’s important that American people remain vigilant.” Sadly, it’s quite clear that the administration and many on the left refuse to do the same; unless it’s remaining vigilant in their pursuit of demagoguing Republicans. It’s gotten to the point where I was honestly waiting for the release of a statement from Obama, consisting of a sternly worded apology and claims that he inherited the bomber, Faisal Shahzad, from Bush.

Michael Bloomberg started the insane blame the Republicans at all costs narrative off with a bang. When asked by the elfin Katie Couric for a guess as to who the bomber could be, Bloomberg offered this:

“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.

Oh, yes, Bloomberg. Those violent, hateful health care bill deniers! Man, someone has to stop those dangerously radical thugs! What’s next? The singing of the National Anthem?! Maybe finding photographs of Obama and fiendishly drawing mustaches and devil horns on them in a frenzied rage of rightwing extremism? I’m only surprised that Bloomberg didn’t also suggest that it was probably an evil smoker or salt eater.

When the information was released that the attempted bomber’s name was Faisal Shahzad, the delusional spin intensified. All across (alleged) newsrooms, thoughts of ” Wait; this whole Faisal Shahzad thing must be inaccurate. That doesn’t sound like a health care-hating, “tea bag-y” name” abounded. CNN quickly hypothesized that perhaps Shahzad was a victim of post home foreclosure traumatic syndrome , as a way to mitigate their sorrow over him not being a tea partier. Most tried to do it stealthily and keep the full extent of their sorrow to themselves, but not Contessa Brewer!

I mean the thing is is that and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry. And so there was part of me was really hoping this would not be the case that here would be somebody who is not the defined.

No, really. It’s on video. I think that Contessa Brewer should be more frustrated and oh-so-sad by the fact that she’s, you know, Contessa Brewer. I also think she should just stop talking. Now. I’m certain the two people who watch her network can somehow manage to muddle through without her “insight.” This was all topped off by the CBS/AP headline today:

Faisal Shahzad’s Motive Shrouded in Mystery

Hey, media, you know what might help uncover the shrouded mystery? How about you try mentioning the word “Muslim” or “Islam”? Even just once. Note, it doesn’t appear anywhere in that entire article. And the omission of either word has been glaring in all accounts. Well, except for one. When that bastion of stupidity, Mayor Bloomberg, spoke out, not against the perpetrator of the crime, but pre-emptively against American citizens; the potential victims of a terrorist attack. (Via allahpundit)

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City “will not tolerate any bias” following the arrest of a U.S. citizen from Pakistan in the Times Square car bombing attempt.

Bloomberg said Tuesday that also applies to potential backlash against Muslim New Yorkers.

Sigh. Listen, everyone has the right to be stupid, but you, Mayor Bloomberg, totally abuse the privilege. It is rather telling that the only time the word Muslim or Islam is even acknowledged is when the rest of us are being accused of being racist half-wits.

Andrew Breitbart summed it up, in a nutshell, in his response to Contessa Brewer who, while personally astoundingly mockable, really just epitomizes leftist thought as a whole. He asked if she was aware that “tea baggers” would save her life, while Islamists want to take it.

That’s the crux of their willful ignorance right there; sometimes, being an Islamic terrorist IS the motive itself. As Leon de Winter wrote at Pajamas Media, “Faisal Shahzad is a Muslim terrorist motivated to kill by his religion, not by the loss of his house to the bank.”

Instead of busily demonizing American citizens, apologizing to those who wish to kill us, and frantically avoiding perceived “profiling” out of the insane fear of looking non-politically correct, they should learn that lesson.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Political correctness is no longer just annoying. It’s deadly.

It’s because they want to kill us, stupid.

These people in the msm are not just wilfully ignorant. They are woefully insane. I have never seen anything like this in my life. It is like they are living in a Hans Christian Anderson fairytale.

I’ve had it, too. This REGIME has to wake up or be tried for treason. Their FIRST responsibility is the safety of our Homeland. But I forgot, the word ‘responsibility’ isn’t in Zero’s playbook. God Save Our Country, please.

The recent reply’s concerning this Times Square bomber is 30 to 40 years of leftist indoctrination from academia now bearing fruit in both the media and elected members of the federal government.

They’ve been brainwashed.

As they can ALWAYS be relied upon, the graduates of the Joseph Goebbels School of Journalism are doing their sworn duty to the REGIME. Hourly and daily, the “official line” is restated, repeated and reprinted.
Stories are written and scripted BEFORE the event.
Answers are sketched out BEFORE the question is asked.
In example a headline of 2010 would be...
“Global Warming, melting the Arctic ice pack, caused the breaking off of the ice berg that last night caused the sinking of RMS TITANIC.”
The 1st amendment guarantee of Freedom of the Press is being converted to a weapon AGAINST the United States.

Warmup to the game last night strayed into a discussion of the Arizona illegals law. It was punctuated by complete ignorance of the law and outright discrimination against conservatives.

Don't be naive, Lori. The enemedia is anything but naive.
The enemedia, and all those supporting them, have an agenda and are following it to a T.

"A lie told often enough becomes the truth."
Vladimir Lenin

"Print is the sharpest and the strongest weapon of our party."
Joseph Stalin

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."
Richard Salant, Former president of CBS News

There are plenty more where these came from on my homepage.

Yep...and you would THINK the powers that be would stop defending a barbaric 'religion' that still believes in human sacrifice.

Thank you J-A-N, I visited your homepage. You just highly populated the subset to my page of Conservative Quotes. It’s always smart to be versed on the opposition.

I think I’d prefer to call you Just A KnowBuddy!

Precisely. Liberalism really is more than just a grave psychological disorder. It's a suicide pact.

Dammit, Faisalo, in Pakistan, we told you not to use cash to buy a plane ticket. You have to blame Bush for causing you to lose your home and causing temporary insanity. Now, you will have to wait until my second term to become my Director of Homeland Security.

How exactly was this attack thwarted?
