Skip to comments.Sorry, Media, No White Tea Partiers Were Involved

Media Bias: There's palpable dismay at outlets such as MSNBC and Salon that the Boston Marathon bombers were radicalized young men from Chechnya and not angry white males from the vast right-wing conspiracy.
Shortly after Monday's tragedy in Boston, David Sirota of Salon Magazine penned a piece titled "Let's hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American."
His hopes were dashed when the suspects turned out to be Muslim brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, whose family origins are in Chechnya, the rebellious Russian region that is a breeding ground for terrorists.
In 2002, about 40 armed Chechen separatists took more than 900 hostages at Moscow's Dubrovka Theatre, a siege that resulted in the deaths of 130 hostages and all of the Chechen terrorists.
The world also watched in horror in 2004 as armed Islamic separatist militants, some Chechen, occupied a school in Beslan, North Ossetia, and killed more than 380 people.
By all accounts, the Tsarnaev brothers were fully Americanized, permanent residents attending U.S. schools. But as such they were the perfect "sleepers," terrorists in waiting, ripe for recruiting, particularly considering their place of origin.
Leftists such as Sirota bemoan "profiling" and "stereotyping" while they engage in a variety all their own. Sirota complained that the likes of Timothy McVeigh are treated as lone wolves while Muslim terrorists are treated as existential threats, that "white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted" for their acts.
Islamofascist terrorists, and the regimes and groups that support them, do constitute an existential threat. There have not been many Swedish terrorists; and what Sirota calls profiling we would call a description of the suspects. We wonder what part of "death to America" Sirota and his colleagues do not understand.

Oh, they are also muslim
Not only are they white, they are Chechen, not Muslim.
I’ll bet Larry O’Donnell just planted a big, slobbering wet one on Chrissie Matthews lips! They are WHITE!
They are zero for two this week. Neither the bombers nor the ricin guy.
This administration intense scrutiny’s of right wing groups led to this Islam travesty. Islam has co opted this administration to the point they ignore the real threat. We are the enemy. We need to accept this fact. Our lives have changed. I use to be a patriotic American (joined the service in the mid 60s) Now I appear to be the target of the Government’s view of suspects.
After pointing the finger all week at Right Wing Conservative T.E.A. Partiers with their hated of the tax-man (government) with their preferred pressure-cooker bomb, I just shook my head in digust this morning when I heard one CNN activist claim, you can’t blame a whole group (muslims) for the actions of a few (terrorist).
After the Benghazi cover-up, this cover-up will be a piece of cake.
I predict there will be ZERO coverage by the ABCNNBCBS monolith of obama ass-kissing talking heads.
After all, only WHITE PEOPLE DIED...
Imagine what the media would do if the bombers wore RA caps. I am surprised MSNBC did not photoshop the insignia onto the caps.
Why anyone reads or believes anything from the MSM eludes me.
They were so hoping that it was a white dude or a Tea Party person they’re so un-happy. I’ll throw a pity party for them.
Should be NRA caps.
They are Democrat Terrorists just like Obama friend, Bill Ayres.
I think I read where one of the brothers had just gotten his US citizenship last year. ...could have been an Obama voter.
Not so fast.
I hear they drink a lot of tea in Chechnya.
There just has to be a connection. Give the media 24 hours at least, they’ll find one.
Oh, the pain!
But take heart, liberals. If there are enough mass murders, eventually one of them will be by a conservative. Then you can rejoice!
Zero for three if you count the abortion doctor from He!!.
How in the hell did these guys get guns? I demand to know! /sarc
They may have broken a law.
I wonder if Israel is watching this.
Can a country collectively shake their head in amazement?
IBD EDITORIAL PING
A nations security contacted the Holder run FBI about these guys.
They even had the state press doing all it could to get the public focused away form their philosophical allies.
This is Fast and Furious 2.0.
