FlashBack: Letís hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American [Liberals aided the terrorists]
www.salon.com ^ | APril 17 2013 | By David Sirota

As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks.

That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters.

However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.

Read the comments on these Lib websites. They are claiming that since these terrorists were from the Caucasus mountain area, they are “Caucasians.” And since a family member claimed they weren’t religious, the Libs are claiming that they weren’t motivated by Islamic terrorism.

That was his hope, not his prediction.

He was wrong, though. Waco, Ruby Ridge, MOVE: governments don't have trouble killing their own citizens, whatever their race. Or the citizens of countries they are at war with. It's citizens of allied or friendly or neutral countries that give them trouble. Hence Guantanamo and the other things he complains about.

Whatever these killers' race, no government would have trouble shooting them down. It's those who aren't so obviously guilty that sometimes give governments trouble. It's not race, so much as it's nationality, age, degree of culpability, and amount of evidence that make problems for countries and result in things like Guantanamo. "White skin privilege" didn't do Randy Weaver any good.

Just like the DC snipers were white
Just like the Gabby Giffords shooter was a "Tea Party extremist"
Just like these bombers were protesting Tax day.

Why do liberals have any credibility?

Chechans are a

Overall, tests have shown consistently that Chechens are most closely related to Ingush, Circassians and Georgians, occasionally showing a kinship to other peoples in some tests. Balanovsky’s study showed the Ingush to be the Chechens’ closest relatives by far.

Chechens belong to the Caucasoid type, exhibiting traits typical of European and Caucasian peoples. The majority of Chechens are dark-haired (medium to dark brown or black), but there are Chechens with blonde or even red hair, while eye color ranges from blue to brown and skin tone is typically rather pale and light (though there are some Chechens with olive complexions).

When you own the MSM and all major internet portals, you get to make the rules.

Well they WERE White Americans.
Just NOT the native good old boy redneck conservative Christian type he was praying for.

Nope they were brownish, immigrant, Muslim type we’ve grown to expect in these cases.

The media is so critical to the success and potency of terrorism.

Liberals know mass murderers are in their ideological camp. They hope against hope that their predeliction for attracting violent killers will be tempered by a conservative who is a demonstrated terrorist. Well, they can HOPE, can’t they?
They are driven by their fantasies.

To be precise, it’s the Leftwing faction of media which is no longer in “complete” control of the information citizens receive.

AFAIC, the Leftwing component of media is the Country’s greatest threat.
