They wanted that almost as badly as another Sandy Hook shooting spree, to get their gun bans through Congress.
So badly did libbies want right wingers blamed for the bombings, they were seen bowing five times a day toward Mecca -- the New York Times.
Armed with reams and reams of no evidence, Chris Matthews on Monday took to the airwaves to denounce the "right wing" for the bombings. As 'proof' that conservatives had planted two bombs near the finish line of Boston's Marathon, he pointed to a fire on Monday at the JFK Presidential Library. As Matthews brilliantly noted, John F. Kennedy was a prominent Democrat. But it later turned out the fire had nothing to do with what the barbarian, bastard Reaganites had perpetrated at the Marathon.
(It also turned out that Lee Harvey Oswald was a communist.)
Michael Moore responded to the bombings by noting that the bombings occurred on tax day, so the perps had to be conservatives demanding a lower capital gains rate. (After all, 2 + 2 = ? Just as 2 tons + 2 tons = Michael Moore's current weight?)
An outraged Obama responded to the bombings by holding a Rose Garden event about gun control. He whined that he's trying to be a strong leader but the NRA won't let him.
The New York Times responded to the bombings by publishing a moving tribute to the victims -- the two bombers. "Far From War-Torn Homeland, Trying to Fit In," read the title to the feature story about the two dear little lads.
Approximately 10.3 seconds after the bombings, Salon's David Sirota expressed hope that people were murdered at the Marathon by a white American bomber.
"Let's hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American," read the nuanced title of his piece. Informed that the bombers were just as he had dreamed -- white Americans! -- he was still disappointed that they weren't Knights of Columbus types -- but Muslims instead. He claimed his only concern was of a backlash by racist, intolerant, extremist Christian bigots against racist, intolerant, extremist Muslim bigots.
In fact, when it was shockingly discovered the bombers were Muslims, the Council on American Islamic Relations responded movingly by denouncing 'Islamophobia,' and demanding sympathy for Muslims.
The group's Chicago honcho urged Americans not to see a connection between the bombers' Islamic faith and their violence. Islam is peaceful -- draw a cartoon of Muhammad and you'll see!
Like Sirota, he expressed fears of a mythical backlash against Muslims. After each Muslim atrocity, we hear the same predictable blubbering nonsense -- about a backlash coming. After 9/11, watch for a backlash! Never happened. After Fort Hood, watch for a backlash! Never happened. After the underwear bomber, watch for a backlash! Never happened. Their predictions are as flawless as the local weather forecaster's.
And now the liberals' hoped-for backlash against Muslims after Boston isn't happening either.
Come to think of it, libbies have had an awful week:
-- They were hoping Texas District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife were murdered by the Aryan Brotherhood. Turns out the murderer was a former Texas justice of the peace. The accomplice was his wife.
-- Liberals were hoping to pass more gun control, secretly wishing for another Newtown massacre to push it through. A massacre did happen, but the weapons used were pressure cookers, not Glocks. Instead, their bill went down in flames. (As will the 800-page alien amnesty bill.) Now liberals howl that America's left with a scant 20,000 gun laws on the books, rather than 20,001, which would have done the trick!
-- Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a shoot-out with police.
-- The Kermit Gosnell murder trial went viral.
As for the 19-year-old Boston bomber, "Bombing Suspect In and Out of Consciousness," says the WSJ, which is more than you can say for liberals. As regards Islamic terror, libbies blissfully slipped out of consciousness decades ago and never drifted back. Even now, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says he hasn't a clue what might have motivated two Islamic psycho killers to kill. (Was it the Sequester? The expiration of the Bush tax cuts? Mad about Obamacare?)
Fearing a backlash against the little Muslim darlings, the Obama administration repeatedly ignored warnings about the Fort Hood shooter, the underwear bomber, the Times Square bomber, the Army recruiting station shooter in Little Rock, etc. The Russians urged the Obama administration a few years ago to vet the elder Boston bomber. The FBI says it did (after initially denying it), putting him through a thorough background check, culminating finally in a no-holds-barred sit-down interview, in which they asked the future bomber a series of key questions, such as, 'Would you be interested in a tenured professorship at Illinois U, at Chicago?'
By his repeated screw-ups, Obama has spent 5 years diligently working to rehabilitate the war on terror credentials of the Bush administration. Why quit now?
Anyway, that's ...
My Two Cents ...
Monday-morning ping! Have a great day, y’all!
Wonderful and very well-written, JohnHuang2!
Please keep writing!
Ted nails it again. F those POS Rats.
How do we know Adam Lanza hadn’t converted to Islam while in that basement? I’m starting to wonder about that..
good post, yours, ted’s too. should be it’s own article. people should read it
Revenge is not enlightened.
Let’s be nice, forgiving and progressive.
When ambulatory, set him free in Southie with a free ticket to a game at Fenway.
No one can object to my good intentions.
Great job, JohnH!! Nailed the bastards!!
They can put the rope through the self inflicted bullet hole in his neck.
Excellent assessment of the Leftwing faction in media, the Country’s greatest threat.
0bama just wants to bring the troops home-and the war they were fighting home also.
LOL. I think you’ve covered it pretty well.
Let’s just say that the liberals, which also inclueded the old MSM, had their REARENDS handed to them last week with the reality of the new media and the reality that it was ISLAMOFACISTS that did what they did up in Boston.
But I think they should make sure EVERY CITIZEN has EVERY RIGHT afforded to them by the Constitution EVERY TIME...
If in the heated aftermath of the Boston Massacre 2013...
(1) We shorten the legal process,
(2) Deny basic rights of the accused (including a fair trial by jury), and...
(3) Hold the beantown version of kangaroo court... etc...
At that point we all become vulnerable to a "customized" framework of "justice". -- Not good IMO...
If we catch our breath and take time to think it over...
As we backpedal all the legitimate emotions surrounding the loss and attack on our nation...
Give the Tsarnaev kid every righteous indulgence of our Constitutional system
(...unless of course, he is designated an enemy combatant---unlikely IMO)...
When he is found guilty-no technicalities or excuses for protracted appeals or "new trials" a gazillion years down the road...
When we hang (shoot/fry/needle)the guilty bastard...
...Our national conscience will remain clear...
And the justice system will have one less hole in it.
“...swift justice for voodoo whack-job...”
How about three months of water-boarding in order to find out where everyone else is?
There was a time in America, not that long in the past, when all reasonable people thought like Ted. Now the media, academia, and “elites” tell us that Ted’s thoughts are evil and are as bad as the bombers’ actions.
All the more reason for him to slip and fall on the stairs and suffer massive brain hemmorhage as he's being transported.
Anyone notice the news blackout on the type of firearms used by the bombers?
If they were evil black rifles the MSM would be plastering their picture all over the networks demanding the Senate revote on the AW ban bill.
Instead there is ....nada.
You always have such a flowery way of stating the facts and making comparisons.
thanks for the chuckle.
the two dear little lads.
He claimed his only concern was of a backlash by racist, intolerant, extremist Christian bigots against racist, intolerant, extremist Muslim bigots.
Islam is peaceful -- draw a cartoon of Muhammad and you'll see!
