The terrorism in Boston last week certainly revealed a lot about the media. Not that we didn’t already know what traitors they are; it merely put an exclamation point on them.
Chris Matthews – always one who’s reflex is to blame Righty, suggested quickly that “domestic terrorists …tend to be on the right.” Like the 9/11 guys? His MSNBC confrere, Lawrence O’Donnell, groped for words and vented his hatred on the NRA, which he charged with letting the Boston marathon bomber get away. How would that have happened? What a tangled conspiracy that would have necessitated!
Michael Moore aimed at the Tea Party, but that’s not a surprise. He wrote the book on the Audacity of Stupid. Actor Jay Mohr couldn’t resist either. He decided the second amendment must go because the gun culture was responsible for the bombing. In Hollywood logic, this non sequitur passes for intellectual thought.
David Sedaris at Salon.com delighted Lefties when he expressed the hope that a white American was the perpetrator. What’s the point of self loathing and spite if you can’t share it with everyone else?
Over the weekend Gerald Rivera showed himself in a tweet. “Regrets to my Muslim brothers/sisters. We know how Boston will aggravate life’s friction-Now’s the time for patience pride & understanding.” Wonder if he would have felt like that had the bomber been Sedaris’ white American male? What if his son/daughter had been on the Boston marathon bomber’s victim list? He probably would have had to be monitored.
The status of retired anchorman gives that person an almost godlike infallibility to the Left. Tom Brokaw took advantage of that to besmirch his own record with remarks on NBC’s Meet the Press. World Net Daily shared this:
Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw strongly suggested Sunday that America is partly to blame for the gruesome terrorists attacks in Boston, because the young, Muslim men involved may have felt “alienated” and angry over U.S. drone strikes on “innocent civilians” in Muslim countries abroad.
Brokaw, who has been playing the role of media elder statesman since retiring, went on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host David Gregory to discuss last week’s Boston bombings, which killed three and injured 183.
“There are a couple of things to remember here, David, I think for all of us,” Brokaw intoned. “With the death of Osama bin Laden, Islamic rage did not go away. In fact, in some ways it’s more dangerous. This is a perfect example.”
He said Americans need to take a hard look at “the roots” of why so many Muslims, including Americanized terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston, want to kill them.
“There’s a lot that we still need to know about what motivated them, obviously,” Brokaw said, noting the Muslim faith of both bombers. “And the fact is that that Islamic rage is still out there.”
Added Brokaw: “But I think that there’s something else that goes beyond the event that we’ve all been riveted by in the last week. We have to work a lot harder (to understand) a motivation here.
“What prompts a young man to come to this country and still feel alienated from it, to go back to Russia and do whatever he did? And I don’t think we’ve examined that enough,” he added. “I mean, there was 24/7 coverage on television, a lot of newspaper print and so on, but we have got to look at the roots of all of this, because it exists across the whole subcontinent and the Islamic world around the world.”
Finally Brokaw offered an explanation: “I think we also have to examine the use of drones that the United States is involved (in), and there are a lot of civilians who are innocently killed in a drone attack in Pakistan, in Afghanistan and in Iraq.
Even though the use of drones has been the hallmark of the Obama administration, these guys will willingly forget this.
Look for another round of blame Bush.
