Will Obama Insider, Media Mouthpieces Apologise For Fingering Tea Party, Patriots As Bombers? 190413bombing

Now a clear narrative has emerged that the main suspects in the Boston bombing were radicalized foreigners [2] who recently converted to Islam, will the numerous analysts, advisors and media talking heads on the left issue apologies for openly suggesting that Tea party followers and patriots [3] were likely behind the bombing?

As we have reported all week, despite zero tangible evidence indicating that the attack was carried out by an anti-tax protester or a “right-winger,” numerous personalities on the left went ahead and made the connection anyway, as a way of pushing their political agendas.

- Just hours after the bombing, Michael Moore blamed the Tea Party [4] for the tragedy, tweeting “2+2 =” followed by “Tax Day. Patriots Day.”

- A Salon.com opinion piece [5] published last night entitled, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American,” expressed the desire that the “bomber ends up being a white anti-government extremist.”

- Former Bill Clinton and Obama advisor David Axelrod also hinted on MSNBC [6] that the attack could have been a form of tax protest.

- CNN analysts claimed [7] that “extreme right-wing individuals” are fond of the pressure cooker device featured in al-Qaeda’s magazine that was purportedly used to bomb the Boston Marathon finish line.

- CNN’s Wolf Blitzer [8] stated on live television within one hour after the bombings: “It is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today, called Patriots’ Day. And who knows if that had anything at all to do with these twin explosions?”

- MSNBC’s Chris Matthews [9] also theorized that the bombing could be the result of a protest against federal income taxes. “As you point out, and I just forgot, I filed already. It’s filing day for the federal income tax, which does cause some emotions around the country – sometimes in the wrong parts of the brain anyway,” Matthews said during his show.

- BBC News coverage [10] suggested that “chatter within the intelligence services” indicates that right wing extremists could be behind the attack, with analysts noting that the bombing occurred on Patriot’s Day, the holiday that commemorates the first battles of the American Revolutionary War.

- In comments to the media, Richard Barrett, the former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team said that the timing of the attack on Patriots’ Day and the relatively small size of the devices suggested the work of a domestic extremist [11].

- Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce [12] also made the connection, noting that Monday is the “official Patriots Day holiday” in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord. He also pointed out that April 19, the actual date of the battles, is connected to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh, who apparently considered himself a “waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.”

- Former FBI agent Brad Garrett [13] said he wouldn’t be surprised if the bombing had been carried out by a domestic extremist “patriot” group or individual in an attempt to make a statement.

- Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan also blindly speculated [14] that “all these anti-gov groups” could be behind the attack.

- A US Forest Service PR rep also took to Twitter [15] to blame the bombing on the Tea Party, writing, “I fear nutty logic goes like this … Patriots Day. April 15. Tax Day. Bad government. Boston. Tea Party. Let’s show ‘em.”

- Actor and comedian Jay Mohr blamed the bombings on the Second Amendment [16], tweeting, “What bothers me most about today is that we’re getting used 2 it. ENOUGH. 2nd amendment must go. Violence has 2 stop. Culture MUST change.”

This kind of disgusting rhetoric from so many of these public figures led statewide organizer for the Massachusetts Tea Party Carlos Hernandez to express his anger [17] at opportunists milking the tragedy for political points scoring. Hernandez lost his 8-year-old nephew Martin Richard, who was the youngest victim of the bombing.

“I just hope the politicians don’t try to show up at the funeral,” said Hernandez. “If these guys try to use it as political crap, I might get arrested.”

It is blatantly clear that the talking heads mentioned above were willing that the atrocity be pinned on anyone associated with the political right in order that the Obama administration would be able to fully exploit the attack for its own ends.

It is also clear that elected representatives and even investigators were being led down the “domestic extremist” garden path by such rhetoric in the immediate aftermath of the attack.

Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, asserted [18] very early on that “The person who did this was someone’s friend, neighbor or coworker,” ruling out the possibility that the attack was carried out by foreigners who entered the United States.

Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, went further, telling reporters, “There are a lot of things that are surrounding this that would give an indication it may have been a domestic terrorist.”

Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House intelligence, said the investigation was leaning towards the likelihood that the bombings were the work of a “lone wolf” extremist.

For a long time now, government lobby groups such as The Southern Poverty Law Center, along with an already out of control Department Of Homeland Security have relentlessly pushed the notion [19] that “right wing extremists” are the biggest threat to the security of the nation.

Of course, their definition of a right wing extremist in their own reports [20] is libertarian gun owners, Ron Paul supporters, Infowars readers [21], or anyone opposed to the policies of the Federal Reserve.

Americans who believe the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are worth protecting from the predatory ravages of the federal government are now routinely considered “extremist” right wingers by these organisations and agencies.

There are still holes you could drive a bus through [22] in the emerging narrative of the Boston bombing suspects. The matter of unidentified private security agents [23] crawling all over the scene of the crime operating some kind of drill [24] immediately prior to the attack has also not been addressed by the FBI or the media. The possible Saudi connection [25] has also been swept under the rug without being properly addressed.

At no point, however, has there been any indication whatsoever in any form that American “patriots”, “right wingers” or tea party types were involved in the attack. The fact that this suggestion was uniformly rolled out by talking heads and analysts serves as proof, once again, that the mainstream media is infested by individuals and groups with a distinct political agenda to demonise Americans who still value their rights.

Will there be apologies? Will there be punitive measures? Not Likely.
