Tamerlan Tsarnaev 'had right-wing extremist literature' (BBC}
BBC ^ | 8/5/2013

Posted on 08/04/2013 9:45:09 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to publications espousing white supremacy and government conspiracy theories.

He also had reading material on mass killings.

Until now the Tsarnaev brothers were widely perceived as just self-styled radical jihadists.

Panorama has spent months speaking exclusively with friends of the bombers to try to understand the roots of their radicalisation.

'Government conspiracies'

The programme discovered that Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed articles which argued that both 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were government conspiracies.

Another in his possession was about "the rape of our gun rights".

Reading material he had about white supremacy commented that "Hitler had a point".

Tamerlan Tsarnaev also had literature which explored what motivated mass killings and noted how the perpetrators murdered and maimed calmly.

There was also material about US drones killing civilians, and about the plight of those still imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.

'A Muslim of convenience'

The suspected Boston bombers Brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 The Tsarnaev brothers, ethnic Chechens, spent their early years moving around a troubled region of Russia torn by a violent Islamic insurgency.

But for the last decade they lived in Cambridge, near Boston.

The brothers' friends told us Tamerlan turned against the country and became passionate about Islam after becoming frustrated when his boxing career faltered because he did not have American citizenship.

Their friends wouldn't all speak openly because they were afraid of being wrongly viewed as associated with terrorism.

Left-wingers like to paint radical Islamist as right-wingers... only after they kill someone. Up till then they embrace them as oppressed minorities.

One suspects that this is a complete and total and calculated fabrication; and...

...that Tamerlan Tsarnaev's absolute worst fear might be to have conservatives sitting in the jury box.

Most Muslims are conspiracy nuts. The entire middle east is full of them. Kinda a test, if a Muslim doesn't think the US is involved in harming their country or in some other plot they aren't a true Muslim.

As for the right wing stuff. That is code for Tsarnaev reading and listening to Alex Jones.

This is from the “White Hispanic” school of journalism.

First you get this narrative, then you take “some facts” and a really, really big shoehorn.

“Hitler had a point”.

Oh like no Muslim ever would agree with that sentiment.

All of that literature could easily be held by Islam terrorists. Even the ones claiming 9/11 was an inside jobs because it would be proof that the US war on Islam was unjust and the excuses just a prop up to justify US aggression. OK city would be further proof that the US was willing to blow up its own people to serve its own end.

What is missing is much of the common reading I would expect to be found. Literature on Christian Identity. Literature about Waco and Ruby Ridge. Literature on OWG. Literature on the Fed. Literature on Bildeburg Group. Literature on government mandated vaccinations or other “proof” that government is using medicine or science to gather genetic info from people. Literature on people such as Robert Jay Matthews.

It can not be discounted that Tsarnaev was laying down a false trail. Radicals of all ilks will read radical literature even if it is not from their view point. Because at some point the goal becomes the same so it is worthwhile (in their minds) to study method and alternative arguments to justify their actions.

There was nothing right wing about the king of socialism...mr. adolf hitler

The official name of Onkel Adolf's party was the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei. That translates to National Socialist German Workers' Party.

So, it was Socialist, and thus, by definition, left-wing.

And it referred to "workers", whatever they are (you don't work, do you?).

Left-wing propaganda is big on on workers, and, more recently, middle class, whatever they are, and "progress", whatever it is.

We are fortunate our President is such a pigmy of a statesman! Hitler wasn't. Stalin wasn't. Both killed millions. But Zero gets to play with drones, thanks to American technology.

He probably collected the “right-wing” material and hadit in his home to throw off government investigators and place the blame on right wing patriots if he were killed during the bombing.

Why, not so long ago trendy leftists in the British press were gushing over Hitler's design sense in his home. Now if Hitler is "right wing", why on earth would the British leftwing press ever have written a glowing article about him?

I've always considered the Leftist's accusations of "Right Wing EXTREMISM" as projection of their mentality, their character and often they prove my point. One wonders which species of bird these Leftist Goonies' are referencing.
