Wahlberg Disgusted over Boston Marathon Tragedy (50 Cent wonders: karma?)
AP/CNS ^ | April 15 | Staff

Posted on 04/16/2013 7:32:53 AM PDT by PghBaldy

It's horrible man. It's (expletive) disgusting, man. I just - I'm very upset," Wahlberg said Monday night.

(50 Cent said): "When you see kids involved in it, I can't write it off. I can't say maybe (it was) karma that is why the kid was where he was."

The CT school moms are shoved off the camera by this, maybe Obama kicked them off AF1 by now. Old news. No-one to look at their weeping faces, no cameras.

One day a star, next a no-body.

The title is a bit misleading. 50 Cent said “I can’t say it was karma”. He isn’t wondering if it is karma.

That “karma” comment was very revealing about his perspective regarding the deaths of innocent adults.

I’m glad that Mark Wahlberg has spoken out about what that thug said. Not only was an innocent little 8 year old boy murdered, his sister lost her leg and his mother was critically injured. What kind of monster calls that “karma”?

Most likely this “report” is an approximation of a syntatically weak combination of words from an inarticulate random person.

Not so fast...

“The deadly blasts at the Boston Marathon opened no-so-old wounds for the siblings of last year’s Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre victims. Their family members had VIP seats near the site where the first of the twin explosions occurred.”

Its now a compound crisis.

Thank G*D Mark Wahlberg spoke up on this issue. I couldn’t sleep wondering what MArk Wahlerg must have been thinking last night!

And all the other Hollywood stars- it must have been awful for them- maybe we should have them on a news conference.

*sigh* Celebrities... Is there anything they DON’T know...~!

frankly, i am a fan of his brother, Donny Wahlberg... love him on Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck... i guess because Mark Wahlberg is a Bostonian, what he thinks is going to be reported... now i really don’t care to hear what Matt Damon and Ben Affleck think... covering my ears, “lalalalalalalalalala—i can’t hear you!”

I prefer the quote from Peter Facinelli: "If it was terrorism, people are going to need to know they're not going to stop us," he added. "We're not going to be afraid. So for me, the best thing to do is to not hide inside. Proceed with caution but live your life."

Yes, Makes perfect sense for Obama to do that,
Except both stories cant be covered at the same time and the new one is the hot one.

Lets see if the MSM keeps asking the CT SH-ES Moms what they think on camera :”This just shows that we need universal...”

Doesnt mix well. Can only have one set of star victims in focus at a time telling their stories,

GOP lib Joe Scarbouro will for sure say that terrorists are running amuck in the US and is this is proof why we need to expand gun checks, but that is a losing argument for Dems. Didnt Obama kill Bin Laden?

Thanks for the info, I missed that one.

Maybe he was just pulling a Bleiber, thinking, "Wow, probably a fan of mine." In Wahlberg's defense, he is from Boston, and a lot of people simply get upset over the death of an innocent child.

I m surprised by how many 50 Cent supporters there are here. So he implies if a child was NOT there, it might have been karma is OK, and people seem to think that is fine?

A borderline retarded former crack dealer turned rapper.

I’m most certainly not on his side, I just found the title to be somewhat misleading.

Ipso fatso (as Archie Bunker would have said), he is also saying that it might BE karma if the terrorist victims were adults.

My completely unfounded prediction:

1. The terrorist will turn out to be a muslim American.
2. The media, having made their initial blast accusation that this was tax day/right wing rlated, will be fairly mute.
3. The attack will be brushed aside as a legal matter, to be prosecuted, since it was just an isolated, lone wolf, act.
4. The media’s only use of the attack will be to point out how quickly first responders were on scene (they will ignore the obvious reasons why).
5. The media will use this notion to argue that you don’t need a gun for your own protection...and by the way, the Newtown parents were there, they’ve now suffered a double tragedy, when will the violence stop, why won’t the right wing stop making this such a violent country.

Give it a week.

Here's another one to look forward to:

This is just proof we need to fix our broken immigration system. The Senate must pass the McCain/Schumer/Rubio immigration bill NOW to force Obama to protect our borders before another bombing takes place (tears running down face).
Do it for the Boston runners, do it for the Sandy Hook Moms, and most of all do it for Gabby!”

NY Sen Kirsten Gillibrand has a good thing going with the cameras, she got an NRA 100% and made it to Senate now she gets on TV and does the drama act really good and she doesnt look like your typical Dem like Hillary.

LOL, ‘This just reopened the scars that they were trying to heal by flying around with Obama and getting on TV and harassing Senate members in person, the school tragedy was almost behind them thanks to Dem victim therapy now this opens it all up again....’

‘Oh when will the GOP show some compassion for mothers?”

Sounds to me like he's saying karma put him there to be killed.

I see the point the poster was making.

If the poster WASN’T 8-years old, then he COULD call it Karma.

Tells you all you need to know about liberals.

They have a mindset that there was a “root cause” behind the bombing, and “someone” got what they deserved.

The point I’m making is that he is suggesting that if it had just been adults injured or killed, it would have been ok because it may have just been karma.

I was saying he revealed a certain perspective regarding innocent ADULT victims. And I take issue with him on that.
