Bombing used to slam patriots as 'hate' group
WND ^ | Arpil 19, 2013 | Drew Zahn

Tea partiers wouldn't have done it, because victims weren't 'black'

The reason it’s unlikely a tea-party, patriot or right-wing group perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombing is because the victims weren’t “black people or Jewish people or gay people or Muslims,” claimed a senior fellow of the Southern Poverty Law Center earlier this week.

The SPLC – a left-wing, nonprofit organization that describes itself as dedicated to fighting “bigotry” and monitoring domestic “hate groups” – keeps an eagle eye on tea-party, patriot, Christian, gun-rights and right-wing organizations, often insisting their fires are fueled by racism and hatred, rather than politics or policy.

SPLC Senior Fellow Mark Potok continued the narrative in an interview on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live” earlier this week, when the host asked Potok if the Boston bomber was more likely to be a lone wolf or part of an existing group.

“It’s more likely to be a lone wolf, these kinds of things, at least in the radical right. The non-Islamic radical right, they don’t tend to be carried out in groups at all,” Potok replied. “It may be, in fact, a home grown radical, but perhaps of the jihadist sort. And the reason I think about that in that way is think about who the targets were. You know, this was not a target that one would associate with a radical right-wing bomber. It was not a government building, it was not the IRS, although it was Tax Day on Monday. It was not a minority group. It wasn’t black people or Jewish people or gay people or Muslims.”

The SPLC paints its listing of official “hate groups” with a broad brush, often lumping in politically or socially conservative organizations with white supremacists and neo-Nazis. For example, the SPLC lists among it’s official “hate groups” the Family

I wonder how they think they can offer any guidelines as to how any conservative would commit such a deed, when a conservative never has done so? No Christian conservative has ever committed such an act, and they sit there smugly speculating as to how this might not have been a Christian conservative because a Christian conservative would have done such and such. Sickening evil people, all they can do is project from what they they would do. Why don’t they interview William Ayres or Kathy Boudin as how it might be done?

The SPLC is the sleaziest organization in America today.

They are shameless in their dishonesty and perpetuate a stereotype of Conservatives that is completely baseless in facts.

No group will whip out the race card faster. They blame all of societies ills on white people even where whites aren't involved and and then have the nerve to call the opposition racist.

Vile disgusting group without the slightest shred of decency.

You might add Amy Bishop, the leftist Obama supporter who killed those people at the University of Alabama (and possibly her own brother).

There is obviously something wrong with a lot of things surrounding this terrorist act. Obama’s regime has been intent on replacing Islamic terrorist/groups with Patriots. That is a disgusting baseless threat used against the entire patriot movement. That baseless political move has obviously had an affect on our safety.

He is attacking a loosely based movement of Conservatives and Libertarians that differ on several issues, but are loosely united by some very important basic Constitutional matters. This just happen to be the only people who still have any respect for our Constitution. Obama is embracing his role as a tyrant while trying to destroy any potential threat to his tyranny with a preemptive attack on patriots. He is responsible for this Islamic terrorist attack by focusing on opponents of his tyrannical political agenda while defending Islamic terrorist, and creating an environment for them succeed in. That's not counting any other information that may come out shortly.

The Washington D.C. snipers were black, I think, and they were Islamic. (at least the older one)I don’t know what their politics were, though!

Now that one of the suspects has been captured alive, I hope he is but under secure guard, because I would be interested to here about what he might reveal under interrogation. Seems to me like they might have had assistance...

America’s strident media hacks are falling all over themselves this week to cast aspersions on conservatives one way or another.

Like their Leftist political leaders, they never let a tragedy or disaster go to unobserved without doing everything they can to turn it to their advatnage.

The phase ‘sleazy opportunists’ comes immediately to mind.

There needs to be lists made of these SPLC collaborators made for if/when the SHTF. I don’t think they’ve fully thought through their plot to its natural conclusion.

I don’t have a doubt there was a much bigger group that just the two “White” guys.

In fact I believe their being white is exactly why they were recruited.

I believe this is a follow up to the attack in Libya.

They are trying to accomplish with this attack what they couldn’t accomplish with the attack in Libya.

There is no longer any way to deny the terrorist attacks are based on what is in the news.

The objective of both the attack in Libya and this attack is to try and make it appear as if the terrorist are simply picking up on news stories and planning their attacks around the news, when in reality the news is being orchestrated by our little lefty friends for the attacks.

With Libya the objective was to make it appear as if the terrorist are so in tune with the news the terrorist could pick up on a news story, the protest in Egypt, plan and carry out a terrorist attack in a matter of minutes, it was spontaneous.

With this attack they were trying to make it appear as if the terrorist had picked up on various news stories coming from various left wing sources such as the WH, SPLC, ACLU, Eric Holder, CPUSA and others then planned the attack around the news stories.

In this case there were numerous stories coming from the WH, SPLC, and others as to how the real threat to this country were White Christian Conservatives, so they tried to make it appear as if the terrorist had picked up on these stories and planned an attack to reflect it, thus the “White” terrorist.

The terrorist aren’t picking up on the news and planning an attack based on what is in the news, the left is orchestrating the news for the attacks.

The fact just a few weeks prior to this attack there were news stories coming from the left with the potential of ginning up civil unrest from three separate groups, White, Black, and Hispanic, tells you the terrorist aren’t simply picking up on the news then planning an attack around the news to try and make it appear as if some militant group has teamed with the terrorist, but the news is being orchestrated by the left for the attacks.

Anyone who isn’t an Obama supporter is a terrorist to the SPLC, including listing FR as a hate group! THEY’re disgusting!

And there is this, while the Obama admin is doing all they can to take US citizens guns. Did this help the refugee bombers get their guns?
