Skip to comments.Tamerlan Tsarnaev 'had right-wing extremist literature' (BBC}
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.
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.

>> “Hitler had a point”.
The BBC should consult the NYT.
Somebody been hittin’ da happy smoke again.
Weird that this is just coming out now. Seems like something the agenda drivers would have seized on immediately and blared it ad nauseous. Therefore, I smell a lie...
Left-wingers like to paint radical Islamist as right-wingers... only after they kill someone. Up till then they embrace them as oppressed minorities.
What a bunch of malarky
There was nothing right wing about the king of socialism...mr. adolf hitler
Bolshevicky Broadcasting Company
A Muslim terrorist reading anti-Jewish propaganda? Say it ain’t so.
right wing material...of course, he did. /s
Sympathy for Nazism runs deep among muslims.
BBC = the British version of CNN.
What a relief!! Brothers Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19 were Tea Party conservatives.
OPEN LETTER TO the Nu Yawk Freaking TImes
Dear Nu Yawk Freaking TImes
I have had dozens of bookmarks for KORAN websites on a few computers
this does NOT make me a MOOSELIM sympathizer nor a stinking JIHADIST
aka WHITE MOOSLIM Crackuhs!
Whoopie dooo! I have a copy of Mein Kampf and Das Kapital as well as the Bible and the Koran. Admiral James Stockdale was quite well educated in Marxism, but was hardly a Marxist.
...that Tamerlan Tsarnaev's absolute worst fear might be to have conservatives sitting in the jury box.
The Islamphiles at BBC simply can’t accept the Muslim Terrorist statements that they did the mass murder of women and children for the cause of Islam.
I wonder which of their friends they learnt this from. Their friends at Al Qaeda or their friends at the DNC.
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.
What a surprise, a Muslim radical thinking the far LEFT WING Hitler had a point. I bet I can guess one point this guy thought Hitler had.
Funny though, cause they ain’t white.
Do they have a copy of his Tea Party membership card and Sarah Palin pin-ups, too?
And every university everywhere has extremist left wing literature, its called the course curriculum...
The KKK and other white supremacists had more to do with Democrats than anything right wing!
see how propaganda works ?
There’s a reason why Mein Kampf is a top seller in the muslim word...
What a lot of nonsense: they’re just trying to tie them into to the political right.
So what? I’ve had far left wing literature once in a while too. It was called the New York Times.
Truthers are mostly on the left ....
Somebody tell the BBC that they hate Bush
Anyone wanting on or off this list...well, you know.
Yes, they continuously paint hitler as “right wing”...how they get away with it, I do not know.
he lived in frickin Cambridge for petes sake
Yeah, Cambridge is a real hotbed of right-wing activity.
I knew it
I knew the TEA Party was behind the Boston bombings!
Socialism is right of rabid communists, therefore described as right wingers.
“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.”
>>>Sympathy for Nazism runs deep among muslims.<<<
Also Chechens were a nazy supporters back to WWII.
Sounds more like the dead terrorist is more like Occupy Wall Street than conservative. Even to the left of Alex Jones
yeah, next we’ll read that he was at a Tea Party rally.
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.
Yes, Cambridge is veritable hotbed of rabid, angry white supremacist, right-wing kooks. Scads of them. Material at every corner and news stand. You can’t throw a rock without hitting one.
