Boston Bombing

It’s not clear yet who planted the bombs or why. As usual I’m more fascinated with the jewsmedia spin.

In Boston Bomb Attack No Excuse for Media Speculation Jeffrey Goldberg stikes a pose as the voice of reason:

In an era in which none of us like to leave anything unsaid, and in which technology offers us the opportunity to say things fast, we often succumb to the urge to speculate. Shortly after the 2011 shootings in Norway, I asked publicly whether a Mumbai-type attack had visited Europe, the implication being that Muslim terrorists were behind the atrocity. It was perfectly plausible to suggest that Muslim terrorists were to blame — except that they weren’t. I learned my lesson.

The lesson was: “Hey guys, let’s not rush to judgment. This could be another Breivik!”

Terrorism Expert: Boston Blast a McVeigh-Like Attack:

“It’s interesting the timing of this event,’’ Dr. Harvey Kushner told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.

“It’s Patriot’s Day, Tax Day. It’s a holiday in Boston and we’re coming up on what was the Oklahoma City bombing April 19th, and also the Battle of Lexington, which started the American Revolution.

“A lot of domestic terrorist organizations used to key in on that date, April 19. And Boston … is the center of this patriot movement and patriot feeling.’’

Kushner, author of “Holy War on the Home Front: The Secret Islamic Terror Network in the United States’’ and “The Encyclopedia of Terrorism’’ said the marathon’s prominence appears to be a factor in it being targeted.

“You have cameras there you have news coverage, so a big statement has been made by this,’’ he said.

“Whether it’s at the hand of a domestic terrorist, or an internationally sponsored group or a wannabe, this is not good for this country because it just shows the vulnerability of this nation.

“This is not flying planes into buildings, but it’s certainly hitting America on an important day and it just shows our vulnerability.’’

He said he believed the explosions could be the work of “a McVeigh type, if I could be so bold.’’

The “experts” aren’t sure which jewish boogeyman to blame yet.

    CBS 3 Springfield – Without facts, pundits spread rumors about Boston bombing:

    Despite there being almost no information about who caused the Boston Marathon bombings, news observers and pundits are quick to place the blame on groups of people, including Islamic terrorists, right-wing extremists, and even the federal government.

    McVeigh is a favorite ADL/SPLC theme. The list-of-things-that-also-happened-in-April theme smacks of JournoList-like group-think and collusion. Where are the mainstream jewsmedia pundits speculating that muslims or the feds are responsible?

    NYPost – Authorities ID person of interest as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital

    None of the other outlets are echoing the Post’s report much less wondering about the significance of April to Saudis.

  2. Extremist ‘patriots’ imperil the United States, latimes.com, 8 Mar 2013:

    They’re not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has been tracking hate groups for 30 years, released its latest report on the growth of these organizations this week. Its findings were, to say the least, alarming.

    . . .

    What can be done to reverse this tide of belligerent ignorance? Not much. The typical patriot acts within his free-speech and 2nd Amendment rights, and in fact most patriot activity consists of venting steam by meeting with like-minded Neanderthals and firing off blog posts threatening civil war. Yet such blather tends to get under the skin of the Timothy McVeighs of the world. These groups should be closely monitored, with resources adequate to the task, even if it means shifting some homeland security money from the hunt for foreign terrorists.

  3. Axelrod: Obama Thinks Boston Bombings Could Be Related to ‘Tax Day’, The Weekly Standard:

    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”:

    [VIDEO]

    “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.”

  4. On obvious staged event to blame defenders of the Constitution, gun rights, Christians. They were running another “drill” before and after the event (oh, yeah), why didn’t they clear the area or cancel the Marathon? Gun rights and your freedom are at stake as they try to justify rolling out TSA or others. Defense of the 2d Amendment–ground zero for White America. libertytreeradio.4mg.com

  5. The regime’s position as of a bit more than one hour ago, FBI, Boston police go into overdrive in marathon bombing probe, Fox News:

    “This will be a worldwide investigation,” Special Agent-in-Charge of the FBI’s Boston Field Office Richard DesLauriers said at a Tuesday morning news conference, adding that investigators will go “wherever the leads take us.”

    “We will go to the ends of the Earth to identify the suspects responsible for this despicable crime,” he added.

    It remained unclear if the bombs were the work of a homegrown or foreign threat, but in Washington, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel called the attack “a cruel act of terror.”

    “Worldwide investigation” sounds a bit like code for non-White, but I wouldn’t want to jump to any conclusions. Suffice to say that the level of official unknown expressed by the FBI puts all the feverish anti-White jewsmedia punditry cited above in its proper context. If it actually does turn out to be a White bomber they will retroactively claim it was justified. If it turns out they were completely wrong, oh well, next story.

  6. Dem Strategist David Sirota: Boston Bombing Tragedy The “New Normal”, RealClearPolitics:

    All possibilities are on the table. But I think that what comes out of this, is the idea that this has really become the new normal in America. The news is now defined as these kinds of mass events of death and destruction and mayhem. A lot of people, I think, react to this, in both a way that they’re fightened, understandably so. Shocked, but not surprised. As we move forward from this, one of the things I hope we discuss is: How has this become the new normal in America?

    Sirota is a jew whose special focus is arguing in favor of profiling Whites – he’s been a leading voice and has been working hard to legitimize the increasingly obvious anti-White pathologizing and demonizing the jewsmedia engages in every time there’s an incident like this. Apparently he’s still working out exactly how to figure this event into that agenda.

    How did this reflexive anti-White rush to judgement came to be the new normal? More than anything else it’s a reflection of the jew-centric media. The fear and loathing of Whites are jewish fears. Not only does David Sirota embody the new normal, he’s among the jews at the tip of the spear forging that new normal.

  7. David Sirota from Salon tweeted: So far Pam Gellar & Alex Jones leading rightwing narcissism race to make Boston bombing a headline opp for themselves http://t.co/DZy5AecoDt. Cites fellow Salon tribemate Alex Seitz-Wald’s Pamela Geller blames a “Jihadi”:

    While she blames Muslims, others blame the government. Most are waiting for answers.

    The jewsmedia – jews citing jews fretting about the best interests of jews. The leftwing jews fret more about Whites. The rightwing jews fret more about muslims. Alex Jones frets about nazis. The “new normal” is jewish neurotic paranoia writ large.

  8. Steven Rosenfeld writes Boston Bombing Is a Tragedy, But Let’s Not Rush to Blame Muslims or People of Arab Descent. He cites Pamela Geller and
    Alex Jones as “predictable hysterical right-wing voices” and adds Jennifer Rubin to the mix:

    Even if it is confirmed that the horrendous attack on the people of Boston and their heralded Marathon, was committed by a person or persons of Muslim descent, it should not cast aspersions and drum up fear and hatred on the millions of peaceful and law abiding muslims living in America. After the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the same Islamophobic accusations were made. The bomber was a white American, a man who hated the federal government and took up an armed struggle on his own: Timothy McVeigh.

    But as the LA Times reported then, such media finger pointing leads to real violence against innocent people who are racially profiled—judged guilty by the color of their skin or clothes that they wear. Americans are supposed to better than this in the 21st century, but some of the media organizations with big megaphones are not.

    “Persons of muslim descent”, LOL. The “big megaphones” in the jewsmedia have been wondering out loud about how people with White skin might be linked to this bombing. Right in there alongside it is this starkly jewish “debate” for and against muslims.

    Why don’t the leftwing jews call out their rightwing counterparts as White “racists”? Why don’t the rightwing jews call out their leftwing counterparts as anti-White “racists”? Because both types of jew understand that only Whites are “racists” and jews aren’t White. Why
    don’t any of them call out the jewish nature of this idiotic left-right theater? Because they’re jews and know that wouldn’t be good for the jews, left or right.

  9. Muslim guy here. This does look more like an AQ attack simply because they tend to hit soft targets. The one thing that does not fit is that no jihadi group has claimed responsibility (and they tend to do this rather quickly).

  10. AP – bombs in pressure cookers:

    These types of pressure cooker explosives have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a July 2010 joint FBI and Homeland Security intelligence report. One of the three devices used in the May 2010 Times Square attempted bombing was a pressure cooker, the intelligence report said.

    This helps explain the FBI’s “worldwide investigation” “wherever the leads take us” “we will go to the ends of the Earth”.

  11. It’s not clear yet who planted the bombs or why. As usual I’m more fascinated with the jewsmedia spin.

    I.e., you’ll no doubt blindly accept the mass media’s explanation of who planted the bombs and why, as you have done with every other “terrorist” attack.

  12. 3940Muslim guy here. This does look more like an AQ attack simply because they tend to hit soft targets.

    Al-Qaeda is not real.

  13. David Sirota writes Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American:

    As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.

    This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.

    It is an indication of jewish privilege that jews so openly criticize “White privilege” from a soapbox in the jewsmedia without ever suffering any negative consequences for doing so. Sirota, like Tim Wise, gets paid for directing fear and loathing at Whites.

  14. I.e., you’ll no doubt blindly accept the mass media’s explanation of who planted the bombs and why, as you have done with every other “terrorist” attack.

    I.e. boohoo I think you don’t think what I think.

  15. Tim “White Like Me” Wise writes Tim Wise » Terrorism and Privilege: Understanding the Power of Whiteness:

    White privilege is knowing that even if the Boston Marathon bomber turns out to be white, his or her identity will not result in white folks generally being singled out for suspicion by law enforcement, or the TSA, or the FBI.

    White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for whites to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening, or threatened with deportation.

    White privilege is knowing that if the bomber turns out to be white, he or she will be viewed as an exception to an otherwise non-white rule, an aberration, an anomaly, and that he or she will be able to join the ranks of Tim McVeigh . . . among the pantheon of white people who engage in (or have plotted) politically motivated violence meant to terrorize and kill, but whose actions result in the assumption of absolutely nothing about white people generally, or white Christians in particular.

    And white privilege is being able to know nothing about the crimes committed by most of the terrorists listed above — indeed, never to have so much as heard most of their names — let alone to make assumptions about the role that their racial or ethnic identity may have played in their crimes.

    . . .

    In short, white privilege is the thing that allows you (if you’re white) — and me — to view tragic events like this as merely horrific, and from the perspective of pure and innocent victims, rather than having to wonder, and to look over one’s shoulder, and to ask even if only in hushed tones, whether those we pass on the street might think that somehow we were involved.

    It is the source of our unearned innocence and the cause of others’ unjustified oppression.

    That is all. And it matters.

  16. This… is White Privilege:

    White privilege is not being the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth racial group to be suspected of the Boston Marathon bombings by virtue of your white skin and the advertised and perpetuated clean, good, nature that inherently accompanies your whiteness.

    This… is surreal.

  17. John King: Boston Bombing Suspect A ‘Dark-Skinned Male’:

    “I want to be very careful about this, because people get very sensitive when you say these things,” he said. “I was told by one of these sources who is a law enforcement official that this is a dark-skinned male.”

    He said that there had been a further description given, but he was refraining from sharing it with viewers.

    “There are some people who will take offense for even saying that,” he said. “I understand that.”

    “We can’t say whether the person spoke with a foreign accent, or an American accent?” Wolf Blitzer asked. “That would be premature.”

    Contrast this sensitivity, this reticence to simply report facts, with the anti-White fantasy.

  18. HuffPo, under the frontpage title “WHAT A MESS!”, CNN, NBC Conflict Over Boston Bombing Arrest.

    The controversy concerns whether there has been an arrest. There doesn’t appear to be any controversy over law enforcement having video of a suspect, that they or the media seem to be withholding. The whole MESS has everything to do with the dishonest way with which they deal with RACE.

  19. Michael Tomasky CNN Follies – The Daily Beast:

    You know by now that CNN reported that a suspect had been arrested in Boston. But then they had to report that they were wrong. There has been no arrest. Twitter, as you might imagine, has been nothing but CNN jokes for the last 90 minutes or so.

    This urge to take enormous risks to be first is crazy in this day and age. Let’s say CNN had been right. A year from now, who’d know? Some people in the TV news industry, and that’s all. Maybe that matters.

    But you get something like this wrong, everybody who pays attention to news remembers.

    Why? It seems like much adoo about nothing. Erik Wemple fingers the real transgression in CNN’s double breakdown: So much for ‘abundance of caution’:

    “dark-skinned male” is useless information that borders on inflammatory. King apparently approached this tidbit with a mindset of restraint, saying that he withheld certain details that he learned from his killer source. So why didn’t he put “dark-skinned” into that same basket? If the police were searching for this individual, what assistance would the “dark-skinned” description offer? Should King have mentioned that the suspect had two eyes and a nose?

    Useless information? Ridiculous. Inflammatory? That must be why CBS didn’t report “WHITE MALE”.

    It’s not unreasonable to wonder if King’s source’s “dark-skinned male” and CBS’s “WHITE MALE” are the same person. It makes me want to s
    ee the pictures that nobody in the jewsmedia seems eager to see.

    In April of 2012 (April!) Wemple wondered Why did PBS call George Zimmerman ‘white’? He didn’t argue it was useless information. Ironically, the same Gwen Ifill who’s disturbed to hear “dark-skinned male” was one of the reporters who described Zimmerman as White.

  20. FBI has images of two persons of interest in Boston bombings, source says | Fox News:

    A federal law enforcement source told Fox News that investigators are looking for two men that are persons of interest in Monday’s Boston Marathon terror attack and have distributed photos for “law enforcement eyes only.”

    The FBI is not sharing the photos with the public.

    A Fox News reporter has seen the photos and called them “clear.”

    Whose interests are served by not sharing these images? Is this “dark-skinned” privilege?

  21. wnd.com – U.S. ‘deporting Saudi person of interest’:

    The foreign student from Revere, Mass., is identified as 20-year-old Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi.

    “I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday, which is very unusual,” Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism told Sean Hannity of Fox News Wednesday night.

    The Reuters news agency reported President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal on Wednesday, noting “the meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.”

    After that meeting was mentioned, Emerson told Hannity, “That’s very interesting because this is the way things are done with Saudi Arabia. You don’t arrest their citizens. You deport them, because they don’t want them to be embarrassed and that’s the way we appease them.”

    The neocons/counterjihads are on this aspect of the story like white on rice. I can’t find any mention of it elsewhere in the jewsmedia.

    What Emerson finds so interesting about Saudis is something nobody in the jewsmedia seems to find interesting about Israelis.

  22. Authorities have clear video images of two suspects in Boston Marathon bombings, official says – Boston.com:

    Authorities have clear video images of two separate suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings carrying black bags at each explosion site and are planning to release the images today in an appeal for the public’s help in identifying the men, according to an official briefed on the case.

    The official said that the two suspects were seen separately on videotape — one at each of the two bombing sites, which are located about a block apart.

    The official, who spoke this morning on the condition of anonymity, said the best video has come from surveillance cameras on the same side of Boylston Street as the explosions. The official said the widely reported Lord and Taylor surveillance camera, and snapshots from individual cellphone camera users, have not provided the clearest images.

    It was unclear why authorities did not publicize images of the unidentified suspects yesterday.

    It cries out for an explanation, as does the media’s apparent lack of interest in getting an explanation. So far the most concrete reason is evident in the (King/Blitzer/Wemple/Ifill) hang-wringing and teeth-gnashing over the “dark-skinned male” description.

  23. Yesterday in The media’s marathon meltdown, Politico’s Dylan Byers pretended the CNN controversy was all about misreporting an arrest.

    Today CNN too has forgotten the “dark-skinned” part of the story. It’s beginning to look like the FBI will resolve their “dark-skinned” dilemma by not officially releasing any pictures or video. Source: Two people in Boston photos sent to law enforcement agencies are no longer of high interest:

    On Wednesday, a law enforcement official who is being regularly briefed on the investigation told CNN’s Susan Candiotti that images showing two men near the marathon finish line were being circulated to state and federal law enforcement agencies. The source described the men as “possible suspects.” But a source told CNN’s Deb Feyerick on Thursday that those individuals are no longer of high interest to investigators.

    The men faced scrutiny and were considered potentially important to the case because one of them had been carrying a black backpack close to one of the bombing sites.

    Asked about the images at a congressional hearing Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano urged caution.

    “There is some video that has raised the question of those that the FBI would like to speak with,” she said. “I wouldn’t characterize them as suspects under the technical term. But we need the public’s help in locating these individuals.”

    How can the public help without seeing who they’re supposed to locate?

    Meanwhile, DRUDGE has just put up one of the “dark-skinned” images that have been circulating on internet image boards for more than 24 hours. The link is to ABC’s article about the dark-skinned male in the blue jacket, Teen: I Am Not the Boston Marathon Bomber. No word yet about the dark-skinned male in the white hat – the one with the pressure-cooker-shaped bulge in his black backpack.

  24. In relation to the “dark-skinned” controversy, Andrew Leonard’s The agony of Reddit at Salon:

    Reddit is not evil, though, surely, some Redditors are racist, and some probably have no problems stirring up lynch-mob hysteria. But Reddit’s big problem is that although it can and does make rules for appropriate behavior, it’s hard to enforce those rules without the kind of heavy-handed moderation and censorship that most Redditors can’t abide. That means that there is always going to be behavior on Reddit that outsiders find objectionable.

    LOL, the agony of Salon’s jews. Salon’s problem with Reddit is in a nutshell the broader jewsmedia’s problem with the internet. They can’t (yet) control it. They can’t (yet) enforce their rules about what is or isn’t appropriate or objectionable.

  25. I stand corrected. In a press conference on MSNBC just now the FBI spokesman showed images and video. They are not the people in Drudge’s photo. One appears more dark-skinned than the other. Neither one looks like Timothy McVeigh. The spokesman said the images would be available at fbi.gov but right now it is not responding – no doubt due to the overwhelming interest in these images that the jewsmedia has been playing down.

  26. The lighter-skinned male fits the CBS twit description: “WHITE MALE, wearing white baseball cap on backwards, gray hoodie and black jacket” – except of course that he looks more “White like Zimmerman” than “White like McVeigh”.

    The claims that they are doing their utmost to find these people ring hollow. They say on these pictures for days.
