“They” have no problem doing it for other major events, such as the Super Bowl, Olympics, and such....had it been SOP for the Boston Marathon, would it have raised unusual concern beyond what one would normally expect?

Savannah Guthrie on NBC (I know, I know - was channel surfing) interviewed a high school aquaintance of the suspect. She said only one thing negative about him came to her memory - otherwise he seemed nice and normal, and it was that once he posted a comment on his fb page complaining that women were allowed to teach him classes, saying that women should not be allowed to teach him. Others who knew him commented back like “What are you talking about, why are you saying these things?!” And he deleted the comments against women being allowed to teach him.

This definitely shows a Muslim mindset.

#Watertown: Suspect 2 is not in custody. Police had engaged a suspicious individual they believed could have been holding an IED.

They cannot lawfully bust your door down in a random search for a suspect.

They can if it is not random. If they have reason to believe the guy is inside and is going to commit a crime they can bust in. It's called exigent circumstances. It has always been legal.

the news media won't mention the word Islam even though that was his world view on his profile

world view: Islam

I'm sure if the killer had been a member of the Tea Party they wouldn't mention it either.../s

You’re oh so right (unfortunately)!

But, they’re very quick to blame the right-wing, GOP, etc., etc. Here’s a post I included on another thread earlier today:

From this thread: CNN Reminds Viewers You Can’t Blame Any Group For ‘Extremists’

“I’ll bet CNN would have sing quite a different tune if it turns out the terrorists had any connection to tea party, or Palin, or any of the ‘right wing’ connection.”

Absolutely! CNN and others came out of the gate blaming whites, conservatives, the GOP, etc. Here are just some I found on FR:

CNN Analyst Suggests ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Could Be Behind Boston Bombing

[UPDATE BELOW] CNN’s national security analyst Peter Bergen twice suggested that “right-wing extremists” could be behind Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings. Yet over an hour later, CNN reported that Boston Police were not holding anyone in custody as a suspect for the attack.

New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof Links Boston Explosion to GOP, Others Pile On

Never let a tragedy go to waste. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Monday quickly used the explosions in Boston for political gain, linking the Republican Party to the horrific act. At 4:10pm, Kristof tweeted, “explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment.”

At 3:38 p.m. Eastern, Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan speculated on Twitter that an anti-government group may be responsible for the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. “We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows,” tweeted Khan, who immediately received a lot of blowback on Twitter for politicizing the tragedy. But rather than back down, Khan defended her speculation in subsequent tweets

CNN, Esquire blame the ‘right wing’ extremists for Boston Marathon bombing ^ | April 15, 2013 | Victor Medina

“Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce wrote in an online post on the magazine’s website that we should not jump to conclusions and blame foreign terrorists, then blames it on right-wing domestic terrorists. He stated “remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.”

Chris Matthews: Did Boston Bombing Have Anything To Do With Tax Day?

By Noel Sheppard | April 15, 2013 | 18:46

As NewsBusters reported earlier, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews seems hell-bent on trying to blame the Boston Marathon bombing on a domestic terrorist, preferrably a conservative one.

After saying shortly into his Hardball program, “Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right,” Matthews later asked his guests if Tax Day had something to do with the event since it doesn’t mean a “whole lot to the Arab world or Islamic world or the, certainly not to al Qaeda” (video follows with transcript):


Axelrod: Obama thinks Boston bombings could be related to tax day
Weekly Standard ^

Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 7:24:03 AM by Windy City Conservative

In explaining why President Obama didn’t call the Boston bombings a “terrorist attack,” former adviser David Axelrod said, “I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day”:

“The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11,” Axelrod said of the phrase “terrorist attack.”

“You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind. And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day. Was it someone who was pro—you know, you just don’t know. And so I think his attitude is, let’s not put any inference into this, let’s just make clear that we’re going to get the people responsible.”

The hysterical screeching has already started. The Left is drawn to blame a terrorist attack on American soil on conservatives like a moth is drawn to a flame. They’re psychopaths who only care about moving their destructive agenda forward. Liberals will say anything; they can’t do otherwise. They’re not bound by any restrictions of common human decency because they have none.

Despicable cancers such as Chris Matthews, Michael Moore and lunatic Cynthia McKinney have already started accusing conservatives of this ugly attack. Let them keep talking.

Either the Boston Police or the media are lying about whether...

Hoyer: Republican Sequester Caused the Boston Marathon Deaths
Fox News Channel (no link) | 4/16/13

Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 10:52:43 AM by pabianice

Democrats, including Hoyer, today blamed the Boston Marathon bombings on the Republicans. According to them, the Republican Sequester so damaged our intelligence community that it caused the Marathon bombers to get away with it.

Took then just 24 hours to blame conservatives for the lives and limbs lost. I am no fan of the Democrats, but this lowers the level of their loathsomeness to a new bottom.

Let’s hope the Senators and Congressfelons debating about our immigration policies are paying attention to what these Chechen Muslime immigrants are doing. BTW I saw that neither is a US citizen, and that both are registered to vote (probably DemocRAT, though I didn’t see info on party registration).
