Reeve should not mistake being right with being pleased, it gets in the way of being ashamed like she should be.

The left is is sick in the head. No one is celebrating that this is an islamic terrorist. Some of us are just not surprised.

As if any more evidence were needed, the events of the past week have exposed the media, and the overall Left, for what they are.

How many times do you have to smack a low-information voter upside the head before they start paying attention?

Dear Elspeth Reeve,
We see a trend, we don't have a problem you do. If you were sincere you would try and clean it up. All you are doing is justifying the actions of a few which by the way is commanded by your own book and clerics...

Prove me wrong

I think what she is really saying here is that the left is frustrated as hell today because the bombers did not turn out to be white Tea Party and/or NRA members.

This bug-eyed freak Elspeth had already built the funeral pyre she hoped to roast all right wing religious thought on, if this attack turned out to be (oh please!!! oh please!!! oh please!!!) the work of some lone nut on the right.

But no. Like 99% of all civilian bombings globally, it turned out to be motivated, planned and carried out by the adherents of militant islam (redundant that).

The poor witch goes hungry again.

Elspeth Reeve at Atlantic Wire.... "The U.S. Anti-Muslim Crowd Is Quite Pleased with Itself"

Right. And Elspeth Reeve is gravely disappointed that these ISLAMIC TERRORIST ATTACKS weren't really carried out by some white, male, "tea party terrorist."

That was her real hope in all this, right along with CNN, MSNBC, CNBC etc..

The fact is, Islamic Terrorism doesn't fit the left-wing's world-view. They will never recognize Islamic Terrorism for what it is, or report it. They will always secretly hope that some right-wing male "tea party" member commits these heinous acts.

Must really suck ass to be one of these "media elite" left wing snob know-it-all's......

Elspeth,

On the off chance you'll see this, a couple of thoughts:

1) Militant stupidity is not an effective strategy for either politics or life.

2) I hope to live long enough to participate in facing the filth of your ilk on a battlefield.

3) In the interim, it's a pleasure to understand that your subconscious self-loathing will always trump the public face of your self-righteous affectations.


Have a (typically) miserable day,

No Kidding

Conservatives are not happy. They are outraged at the stupidity of the left in leaving America vulnerable to terrorists through their appeasement of islamic infiltration. Dhimmis deserve only contempt.

That's probably a waste of effort, Arm_Bears. My father used to put it this way: "Some people learn from others' mistakes; some people learn from their own mistakes, and some people keep making the same mistakes over and over."

After we restore our lost constitutional republic, I hope we'll require all voters to be property owners and tax payers, and exclude all tax receivers—if, in fact, we still have any.

Y'all don't bring nuthin' to the potluck, y'all can wait 'til the rest of us are done eatin'.

The leftists are desperate for a mass murderer to be from one of their despised target groups - TEA party, GOP, conservative, Christian - and their MO is to immediately gloat following any mass killing in their hope that the perp is from one or more of those groups. They project their sick hatred onto these groups in sick hopes that they’ll have something concrete to justify their hatred. So, for a brief period following a mass murder, they are pleased with themselves, knowing, I suspect, that the giddiness will be short-lived.

For any honest psychiatrist, this mindset would be a target rich environment of analysis.

Elspeth Reeve is not new to this game. Remember back a number of years ago she worked for The New Republic and her, I believe at the time, Boy friend, Bouchamp wrote an article describing atrocities commited in Iraq. I was serving with the 2nd Marine Division, as the Division Gunner at the time, and I'll never forget those two. You will recall the outrage when this Bouchamp clown was proven to be a fraud and lier. Miss Reeve was the "fact checker" for the New Republic and they ran the articles without acknowledging her participation. She is up to the same thing!

The only people who would be celebrating would be the far-left loons celebrating the bombing by that mythical angry TeaParty memember and of course there hasn’t been one single incident of teaparty violence in the 5 years or so it’s been in existence. But even tho’ it is the far-left loons, the occupiers and their Jihadi allies causing 100% of the violence and murder and even right out in the open for everyone, including the media to see, you still have the “main-stream” media suggesting white men, swasitkas and teaparty members as the cause for all the violence. There are grown, mature(i assume), degreed journalists on Current TV who were acting out in front of the camera Thrusday, actually admitting that they hoped the bombers would be white men. The bitter partisanship and unbridled, unabashed hatred and intolerance in the msm has never been more off-the-wall than it is today.

The US anti-Christian crowd is quite displeased.

They wanted this to be the act of some right wing Evangelical Christian, but instead it followed the normal script where it was radical Islamists, whom the anti-Christian crowd seems to love. They all knew that this was the work of Islamists, but they wanted sooooooooo bad to think that this would not be the normal situation where innocent children are slaughtered in the name of ALLAH.

The Bible teaches that anyone who harms children is going to face the wrath of God, but the Koran teaches that killing infidel children is something that is good.

No surprise that the same people who love Islam and hate Christianity are the same people who fight for the rights of women to murder their own children.

No one is celebrating that this is an islamic terrorist.

...it is true that I’m not celebrating that fact, because to do so would be celebrating that the stricken people in the photographs were injured, it is also true that I’m pleased that an entire group of law-abiding, productive individuals weren’t smeared by the actions of some nut...and I’m sure I’m not the only one on this forum to be pleased by that...

...the other point is that I doubt anyone on this forum would be carrying the water for a white conservative extremist, had these fools turned out to be so...big difference between left and right on that point...

Isn’t This How Bill Ayers Got His Start? (Hussein’s best friend in Chicago who isn’t behind bars)
Rush Limbaugh ^ | 4/16/13 | The Maha

Posted on Saturday, April 20, 2013 10:08:34 AM by Libloather

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: “Who’s Bill Ayers?” It’s a good question. People may not know who Bill Ayers is. Bill Ayers is a resident of Chicago. Bill Ayers is widely thought to have introduced Barack Obama to the powers that be in Chicago that enabled his political career to begin. Such introductions, parties, took place at Bill Ayers’ house, which was in Obama’s neighborhood.

I think Ayers and his wife babysat the Obama crumb crunchers. Bill Ayers’ one-time girlfriend, Diana Oughton, “and one other member in the Greenwich Village townhouse explosion, while constructing anti-personnel bombs intended for a non-commissioned officer dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.” “[I]n 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb at a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket affair,” dedicated to police casualties. Bill Ayers in 1969 was part of the sixties generation that hated the cops, called ‘em pigs.

Bill Ayers celebrated, memorialized efforts to kill cops and actually planted a bomb at a statue dedicated to police casualties. “[T]he blast broke almost 100 windows and blew pieces of the statue onto the nearby Kennedy Expressway.” “Ayers participated in the bombings of New York City Police Department headquarters in 1970, the United States Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972...” “Some media reports and political critics have suggested that Ayers, Dohrn or the Weathermen were connected to the fatal 1970 San Francisco Police Department Park Station bombing ...”

So that’s why I say Bill Ayers got his start this way. Bill Ayers now is a leading figure in American education, textbook design, creation, authorship. Bill Ayers. In fact, I have a story in the Stack today about Ayers saying America’s days are over — and that’s good! My only point is that it’s yesterday’s terrorists who are today’s heroes to the left — and got their start exactly this way, exactly this way as happened in Boston on Monday.

I havent heard one person express the idea of pleasure in this horrible terrorist attack. I am not sure that a sane person could even formulate this kind of thought, until I read this. I sincerely believe liberals are the ones that harbor this kind of hatred and condemnation against other religions and race. They express it by blaming others.

Obama pals Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrrn are terrorists embraced by academe and. By their media and politico enablers.

Their fellow terrorist Kathy Boudin ended up with a cushy post at Obama’s alma mater, Columbia U.

Will the Boston Bombers also be rehabilitated and embraced by our so-called (self-appointed) “elites”???

The surviving brother may have an academic appointment someday. SCUM.

No one on the far left was disturbed by the deaths of these young people. The ONLY thing they care about is their PC agenda. If it had been a tea party conservative terrorist then they would feign indignation to push the agenda but still wouldn't give a rat's ass about the crime.

Never forget that these leftist subhumans are just as EVIL as the terrorists who did this bombing!
