Never mind that the circumstances of the incident would seem to indicate a RW anti-goverment terrorist - it's obviously the muslins' fault.

When the mass shooting in Norway happened, the rightwing was calling for invading Muslims and killing them all.

Then 2 hours after the first report came, the details of it being a white rightwing christian who loved the teaparty doctrine.

They shut up for two days before then calling the shooter a left wing socialist.

.
Initial evidence shows 2 bombs that are very basic with added shrapnel. It seems to be a warning bomb. Warning of more to come. Caused on 'patriots day in Boston'

Actual terrorist would go for more people at the start instead of at the end.

Britney Spear's Speculum: What's funny is that the Tea Party is already deflecting blame for something liberals and moderates haven't pinned on them yet.


Seems pretty clear to me that there's some thread in some tea party blogging sewer that would point to anti-government action.  I'm sure we'll get more details soon, but that's the only logical way to explain the "hey it's not us.  Nothing to see here!" from some of these people.
 
2013-04-15 08:18:48 PM  
If Boston had been the actions of a recognized terrorist faction, they would have been screaming it from the top of the nearest tree as soon as it happened. This has all the hallmarks of a lone nutjob, or several nutjobs working together to sow chaos and destruction in their wake. They will probably post an anonymous rambling manifesto online decrying whatever particular slight against them that set them off, taking ten thousand words to do so, will eventually be arrested, will end up being judged non compos mentis, and will spend at least 10 years, if not 20 years, being fed mood-altering drugs and talking to some pshrink while various people call for them to stop being coddled and put to death.

Islamist apologist worms.

Though not legally binding, the Republican National Committee (RNC) used both signed Loyalty Oaths and spoken Loyalty Pledges as a requirement to attend certain 2004 re-election campaign speeches, a possible first in U.S. election history.

During the 2004 presidential campaign, the campaign of George W. Bush routinely required all attendants at its rallies to take what some have called a "loyalty oath". Those who refused to take the oath were not allowed to attend the rally. The "loyalty oath" was actually a pledge of endorsement. These endorsements were used during some of the campaign rallies in 2004. The Bush campaign asserted that the oath was valid because the president was conducting a partisan campaign event. Opponents countered that the oath was intrusive to individual conscience, somewhat fascist in nature and denied general public access to the president.

To participate in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary in Virginia, voters will be required to sign a form stating, "I, the undersigned, pledge that I intend to support the nominee of the Republican Party for president."


Must be rough being a McCarthinazi.

Oh lord. Remember when 9/11 happened and both libs and cons were united behind the President just months after a very divisive election, giving a super boost of his approval ratings?

so if (when) it turns out to be a right-winger responsible, he'll kill himself?
 
2013-04-15 08:48:35 PM  
Let's see if I have this straight.

We need to kill ALL of the muslims because of this bombing.

Here's my take on the likely bombing suspect(s)

FACTS:
Today is Tax Day.
Today is Patriot's Day.
2 bombs fashioned from low-grade (homemade??) explosives are set off in Boston.
Said bombs create a relatively low number of casualties due to the timing of their detonations, indicating a lack of planning or piss-poor planning.

My money is on a white RW male between the ages of 35 & 50, who drank the Tea Party Kool-Aid ("Taxed Enough Already!!!!!11!!!!ELEVENTY!!!") and decided that Boston would make a fine target due to:

1. Site of the Boston Tea Party (Symbolism)
2. Massachusetts (TAXACHUSETTS!!!!) is a blue state.
3. Boston is an exceedingly blue city. (LIBS LIBS LIBS LIBS LIBS!!!!!!)
4. Marathons are typically won by Kenyans or (more recently) northern Africans from predominantly Muslim nations (Take THAT Fartbongo, you Muslim Kenyan Usurper!!)
5. It's Patriot's Day (and what could be more patriotic than rocket's red glare and bombs bursting alongside a marathon course?)
6. "The highest form of patriotic is descent" (And he decided to show his "descent" by blowing shiat up)
Crazy Bomb Guy would have preferred using a rifle, but going up on one of the rooftops with an AR-15 would likely have resulted in him getting his own ass shot and/or arrested, and there is NO WAY a "patriot" like Crazy Bomb Guy is gonna do time in a gubmint prison. (Typical RW lack of willingness to put his own skin in the game)
7. CBG (Crazy Bomb Guy) thought, "I got me all them survival manuals and how-to type books on making stuff go 'boom.' If'n I can't use me a gun, I might as well try making a bomb or two."

I could be wrong, but the crazy all lines up a little too neatly for this to have been done by anyone other than a poorly-educated white dude with a RW axe to grind who listened a little too closely to douchebags Grover Norquist and Dick Armey, as well as nuts like Sharron "Second Amendment Solutions" Angle, not to mention the voices in his head that were screaming "Don't be a pussy - Be a HERO!!!.

Which is why people are so quick to find a reason. It helps them make the situation controllable. Then they can fight X so it helps stop something like this from happening again. Someone killed several people and he loved video games? Then we assume X is video games and we control that. That will stop these killings.

What terrifies people during these tragedies is if there is no X. Someone didnt kill because of religion or politics or economy or family or whatever. They killed because they wanted to, and you cant counter that effectively. Finding a cause helps people rationalize it. Thinking anyone can just decide to kill on a whim for no reason terrifies people.

As a Bostonian, fark this guy. My Muslim friends, Jewish friends, Christian friends are all in agreement on two things:

1 - fark the people who did this. Sideways. With a rake.

2 - People who spout off like idiots, trying to start shiat like this have to lick the rake clean after.

Exactly.  That's one of the many things that made Newtown so horrendous.  There was no group behind.  It wasn't political.  You can't really anticipate or plan for the lone lunatic when you're looking for chatter or trends or whatever it is that groups do to betray their actions.

A friend of mine once said "When there's no intelligence behind it, you can't expect Intelligence to be in front of it."

Speculation that it was Occupy Wallstreet.
Jokes about "assault bombs" being banned.
Whining that Chris Matthews speculated about "right wing" being responsible
Pointing out that Ted Kaczynski and Tim McVeigh were liberals and that all domestic terrorists in prison are Democrats.
Reminders about Weather Underground
Calls to ship all Muslims out of the "civilized world" and to the Middle East.

I could go on.

No it doesn't.  You are no better than Rush.  Hilarious that you attack, while attempting to make it political.

Quoting MustangFive's post

"1. Site of the Boston Tea Party (Symbolism)
2. Massachusetts (TAXACHUSETTS!!!!) is a blue state.
3. Boston is an exceedingly blue city. (LIBS LIBS LIBS LIBS LIBS!!!!!!)
4. Marathons are typically won by Kenyans or (more recently) northern Africans from predominantly Muslim nations (Take THAT Fartbongo, you Muslim Kenyan Usurper!!)
5. It's Patriot's Day (and what could be more patriotic than rocket's red glare and bombs bursting alongside a marathon course?)
6. "The highest form of patriotic is descent" (And he decided to show his "descent" by blowing shiat up)
Crazy Bomb Guy would have preferred using a rifle, but going up on one of the rooftops with an AR-15 would likely have resulted in him getting his own ass shot and/or arrested, and there is NO WAY a "patriot" like Crazy Bomb Guy is gonna do time in a gubmint prison. (Typical RW lack of willingness to put his own skin in the game)
7. CBG (Crazy Bomb Guy) thought, "I got me all them survival manuals and how-to type books on making stuff go 'boom.' If'n I can't use me a gun, I might as well try making a bomb or two.""

That's 7 data points (8 if you consider that the average jihadist-made bomb tends to incur much greater loss of life) that support a domestic anti-government source versus none that support a jihadist source. The point of my original post (which apparently I could have expressed better since everyone seems to be attacking me for it), is that if you're going to speculate at this stage (as the guy in TFA did), the information that is out there leans more towards one conclusion than another.

I could be wrong (hence the "Would seem to" clause indicating uncertainty) but I was commenting on the specifics of TFA and not directly pointing fingers.

For all we know, it could be a random psychopath with absolutely no sociopolitical agenda who found some bomb schematics online and just wants to kill people. Crazy doesn't need a motive.

themindiswatching: Hollie Maea: themindiswatching: I kinda want to see what FR's saying about the bombings, but I'm scared to think what I'll find.

Let's see. In the most recent FR threads we have:

Speculation that it was Occupy Wallstreet.
Jokes about "assault bombs" being banned.
Whining that Chris Matthews speculated about "right wing" being responsible
Pointing out that Ted Kaczynski and Tim McVeigh were liberals and that all domestic terrorists in prison are Democrats.
Reminders about Weather Underground
Calls to ship all Muslims out of the "civilized world" and to the Middle East.

I could go on.

Yeah, about what I expected.


And if it turns out that a RW white dude was the bomber, the Freepers will certainly apologize for their rhetoric and demand justice be done...

Wait, who am I trying to fool here...

They'll claim it was a false-flag job by Taxbongo designed to put their nutty asses squarely in the crosshairs. Then, when Crazy Bomb Guy turns out to have repeatedly told people at his local Tea Party watering hole, as well as at several town hall meetings held by his member of Congress, that "somebody should start bombing shiat... that'll scare the crap out of them libs!", they'll move the goal posts again and say that dude was a liberal plant from the git-go. After which, his family, high school friends, neighbors and anyone who has ever met the guy will go on TV and say that he has been ranting against "Big Gubmint" since he was barely out of diapers, which will cause the Freepers to claim it was Obama in his Magical Time Machine...

"No True Scotsman" is simpler.  "That guy ain't no real conservative! No Real American would go killin' innocent women and children.  Ah-yep, he's a liberal, just like that Tim McVeigh fella.  What's that you said?  Eric Rudolph?  Name don't ring a bell.  That another deluded liberal murderous psychopath?  Sure are a lot of 'em, hard to keep track."

"No True Scotsman" would be the likely response from the Murdoch Mouthpieces. But, we're talking about Freepers here... Ya gotta go big (BUGNUT FARKING CRAZY) when you consider the Freepers.

Fair and balanced: if the bomber turns out to be a swarthy muslim, the "No True Adherent of the Religion of Peace" argument will be proffered.

Absolutely. If that is the case, I expect that the rational "not a true Muslim" will be bandied about all over the major news networks - Save one, who will instead call 0bama the AntiChrist for:

A) Not bombing whatever country the guy comes from back to the Stone Age (Unless said muslim was born in America, in which case the hue and cry will be for a repeat of the Japanese Internment and a stop to all immigration of "Untrustworthy" (AKA, non-white) people
B) Not trying to tie it to a country that DEFINITELY was not involved (like Best Korea) for the purpose of getting into a trillion dollar shooting war and drawn-out occupation cuz "we don't want the next bomb going off in Boston to be a nuke"
C) Not loosening gun ownership restrictions because "if there had been an armed patriot there in Boston that day, he coulda shot the ball bearings out of the air before they hit those innocent victims"
 
2013-04-15 10:01:51 PM  
Obviously we don't know who was responsible, and speculating about who it is takes you dangerously close to derpville, but the main reason I doubt it was Islamic terrorists is because no group has claimed responsibility.

No, it's important that it be a white guy because nobody can do anything to white people as a groups.  If it's a black dude, or a hispanic, or an asian, you know damn well that their entire ethnic group is going to go through shiat for weeks if not months after this.  People will randomly suspect them on the street for no reason..  Their kids will get beaten up in schools.  They'll be targetted for unjustified BS by law enforcement.  Property will be busted up.  And hell, if if turns out the bomber's an Arab...well, we saw how we treat them after 9/11....we're STILL persecuting them.

No, it's gotta be a white dude.  We're the only group that no one will dare treat badly.

Could be.  With the rhetoric being tossed around the political discussions these days, I suppose some bug-fark nutty militia group could try to pull off something like this as a threat against Obama because they're terrified of him taking away their guns.

Truth is, though, it could be anyone.

Which is why people are so quick to find a reason. It helps them make the situation controllable. Then they can fight X so it helps stop something like this from happening again. Someone killed several people and he loved video games? Then we assume X is video games and we control that. That will stop these killings.

What terrifies people during these tragedies is if there is no X. Someone didnt kill because of religion or politics or economy or family or whatever. They killed because they wanted to, and you cant counter that effectively. Finding a cause helps people rationalize it. Thinking anyone can just decide to kill on a whim for no reason terrifies people.

Exactly.  That's one of the many things that made Newtown so horrendous.  There was no group behind.  It wasn't political.  You can't really anticipate or plan for the lone lunatic when you're looking for chatter or trends or whatever it is that groups do to betray their actions.

A friend of mine once said "When there's no intelligence behind it, you can't expect Intelligence to be in front of it."


Astute friend.

skullkrusher: Emposter: This is why I continue to hope the bomber was a white dude.  I don't hate white guys - that would be awkward, since I'm a white guy.

No, it's important that it be a white guy because nobody can do anything to white people as a groups.  If it's a black dude, or a hispanic, or an asian, you know damn well that their entire ethnic group is going to go through shiat for weeks if not months after this.  People will randomly suspect them on the street for no reason..  Their kids will get beaten up in schools.  They'll be targetted for unjustified BS by law enforcement.  Property will be busted up.  And hell, if if turns out the bomber's an Arab...well, we saw how we treat them after 9/11....we're STILL persecuting them.

No, it's gotta be a white dude.  We're the only group that no one will dare treat badly.

Muslim, yes. Asian, maybe. Black or Latino? Nah.


Just think about all the shiatstorm Trayvon Martin caused for the black community.  That was just one kid.

Not fear. Look at the circumstances surrounding the bombings.
1. Tax Day
2. Approaching Waco and OKC anniversaries, holy days for survivalist nutjobs
3. Ultra Liberal city in extremely blue state
4. Event that often features Kenyans winning (have someone look up symbolism for you)
5. Crudely constructed bomb with ball bearings, most likely a pipe bomb that anyone in the Turner Diaries fan club can put together.

You may now resume waiting for Fox and Friends to tell you what you should really think.

I've watched Fox News (and MSNBC) almost every day for at least five years.  And I've never heard of Erik Rush - he must be really important to the Fox News channel.  This is the Subby-is-an-idiot equivalent of calling Rand Paul an "MSNBC contributor" because Maddow interviewed him once.

I have no idea who did this. For all we know, it was a South African immigrant who had a grudge with one of the Liberian runners.

I really hope this was a domestic source.

I mean, I realize the political bullshiat will be bad, but think about it:  If it's a foreigner we have MORE xenophobic, constant-war bullshiat that really is bad for this country.  If it's a Muslim we have more screaming islamophobia guiding foreign and domestic policy.  I don't particularly LIKE islam (even the non-wahhabist sects aren't particularly good) but the "religious freedumb except for muzzies" mindset is embarrassingly bad for the nation.

Moreover, ANY foreign source means we start profiling brown-skinned folk, adding more "security" at the expense of liberty, and ignore the continuing machinations of the looters and polluters and murderers and thieves that have made out like bandits the last 12 years.

But a right-wing domestic terror cell?  There will be enough spin and enough couching and enough soft-defense of "they don't speak for US and they don't count because and such" that we might, MIGHT not enjoy the same bullshiat we went through after 9/11.  Because when the enemy is "us" we find reasons for it not to matter as much.

I doubt we'll be that lucky though.  Say hello to further militarization of police forces, rolling back on marijuana legalization because someone made a (nonsensical) connection between "The drugs" and "the terrorists."  Prep for more financial fraud that's too big to prosecute, more double-standards where trust-funders get special exemptions while we get watch lists, and expect random cavity searches for just walking down the street.

Or maybe I'm just a pessimist.

I mean, I realize the political bullshiat will be bad, but think about it:  If it's a foreigner we have MORE xenophobic, constant-war bullshiat that really is bad for this country.  If it's a Muslim we have more screaming islamophobia guiding foreign and domestic policy.  I don't particularly LIKE islam (even the non-wahhabist sects aren't particularly good) but the "religious freedumb except for muzzies" mindset is embarrassingly bad for the nation.

Moreover, ANY foreign source means we start profiling brown-skinned folk, adding more "security" at the expense of liberty, and ignore the continuing machinations of the looters and polluters and murderers and thieves that have made out like bandits the last 12 years.

But a right-wing domestic terror cell?  There will be enough spin and enough couching and enough soft-defense of "they don't speak for US and they don't count because and such" that we might, MIGHT not enjoy the same bullshiat we went through after 9/11.  Because when the enemy is "us" we find reasons for it not to matter as much.

I doubt we'll be that lucky though.  Say hello to further militarization of police forces, rolling back on marijuana legalization because someone made a (nonsensical) connection between "The drugs" and "the terrorists."  Prep for more financial fraud that's too big to prosecute, more double-standards where trust-funders get special exemptions while we get watch lists, and expect random cavity searches for just walking down the street.

Or maybe I'm just a pessimist.


Let's be realistic pessimists.

Don't know who did it, not about to armchair guess or hope for stupid reasons.  But no matter who did it, it's going to suck to go to any large event any more so than it already does.  Street fairs, football games, etc. - the cops in NYC are likely going to get to keep their crappy stop and frisk (your daily quota of young African American males) because of this. It's going to suck to be all of us trying to have a fun time at a well attended public event from here on out, and (I'd wager) it's gonna suck for us just trying to get home past such an event.  Folks in BFE will be unaffected for the most part, even though our food supply is stupidly obviously vulnerable.  Although to be fair, maybe those wanting to cause terror figure that the ever frequent factory farm recalls are kinda doing a better job than they could.

Marijuana is fine.  The tide is turning on that too damn quickly.   It might take longer for certain states, but at least the vast majority of the young population (I'd wager; I'd almost guarantee in states with legal medical MJ) respond to the terror = drugs argument with "well, if we f--king grew it here then that wouldn't be a problem, huh?".

Trust funders and Wall Streeters will be fine, because they always are.

Wanted for questioning


First thing I thought of, sadly enough.

I know it's really damn early for all of this, but I'm extremely f--king curious to know what security precautions Boston had set up.  If this was something one freaking explosive sniffing dog passing over the route an hour prior could have prevented....

Okay, fine, more than one dog.  Y'know.  26 miles and all.  But start/finish damn well better have been checked out, because that's Common Sense.  I can't take a purse to go see a football game down the street.  Nor any drinks, water bottles, and a zillion other things.  I can only imagine what gets banned after this (kind of waiting for them to try to ban coats, since I have coats that can fit more in the pockets than my purse could ever dream of).

Anyway, it's far easier to monitor a place with designated points of entry and exit, but I assume "start line" and "finish line" certainly have those.

skullkrusher: stoli n coke: skullkrusher:no. Please, continue using the death and dismemberment of dozens of your fellow citizens as an opportunity to play your lackwit internet games.

So, your mission was to come into this thread, feign outrage, and then claim some kind of moral high ground? Kind of sad, man.

It's not outrage. It's disgust. And again, if you think a person has to "feign" disgust at this sort of ghoulish, infantile nonsense, it's worse than I thought.
Oh, I'm all about claiming the low ground. I have limits, however. Apparently you don't.
Bully for you. Have fun with your cockslap fight, ghoul


Whoever did it is a low life fracking coward. Speculation as to who is to blame is really more of a mirror on the accuser than it is based on empirical fact, at this point.

I wouldn't call it disgusting as much as it is human nature. So far there is a vacuum of information, and people fill this vacuum with their own prejudices. You should not wade in their collective mind-shiats if you find it offensive.

Right wingers are blaming foreigners, which doesn't seem to be the case since those seasoned groups claim responsibility in a rather timely fashion.

Liberals are hinting at the homegrown variety of terrorist, which actually fits the timing as well as the type of bomb used, but that's neither here nor there. Once an investigation is conducted, we will know who is responsible and put our collective boot up their ass(es).

Snapper Carr: Never mind that the circumstances of the incident would seem to indicate a RW anti-goverment terrorist - it's obviously the muslins' fault.


My right-wing brother-in-law happened to be here when the news first hit. "They ought to immediately bomb the whole Middle East!" was his response.

"Why?" I said. "Given the liberal attitudes in Massachusetts on abortion, gay marriage, and gun control, I'm willing to bet the perp will turn out to be a White, Christian, Republican-voting, Glenn Beck-listening militia member with an NRA Life Membership in his wallet."

Which got me a disbelieving stare.

1. Tax Day
2. Approaching Waco and OKC anniversaries, holy days for survivalist nutjobs
3. Ultra Liberal city in extremely blue state
4. Event that often features Kenyans winning (have someone look up symbolism for you)
5. Crudely constructed bomb with ball bearings, most likely a pipe bomb that anyone in the Turner Diaries fan club can put together.

You may now resume waiting for Fox and Friends to tell you what you should really think.

you're conveniently forgetting that last time a dude snapped and went on an ideological killing spree, he was a bleeding heart liberal

"The honorable President George H.W. Bush, they never give you enough credit for your successful Presidency. You were always one of my favorite Presidents (2nd favorite). I hope your health improves greatly. You are the epitome of an American and service to country. "

Every liberal lists a Bush as their second favorite President.  Duh.

Yeah.  It really doesn't seem to have any of the hallmarks of a "True Believer."  I'm even reluctant to call slap the "terrorism" label on it since we really don't have any clue as to who did this or what their motivations were.  Normally, with terrorism, they're looking to frighten people into embracing some cause or ideology or whatever.  So far, this just seems like the work of a very damaged and sick human being who just wanted to kill people for his own twisted enjoyment.

I'm convinced it was mimes. Can't trust those farkers at all.

Britney Spear's Speculum: What's funny is that the Tea Party is already deflecting blame for something liberals and moderates haven't pinned on them yet.


In the multiple Boston Marathon threads, I've seen far too many suggestions that the responsble party was a Tea Partier, so I'm guessing they've been noticing a significant number of unfounded accusations.

As for who did it?  I'm guessing some lone nut job who's manifesto will resemble something written by a high school student after an all night bender involving cheap bourbon.  I base this on the lack of anyone stepping forward to claim responsibility.

rufus-t-firefly: SunsetLament: I've watched Fox News (and MSNBC) almost every day for at least five years.  And I've never heard of Erik Rush - he must be really important to the Fox News channel.  This is the Subby-is-an-idiot equivalent of calling Rand Paul an "MSNBC contributor" because Maddow interviewed him once.

He has his own tag on foxnewsinsider.com that lists his recent appearances, so it's not a stretch.

So does Al Sharpton - does that make him a "Fox News Contributor" too?

Yeah.  They're just going with the Tax Day/Boston Tea Party thing.  Personally, I think that might be over-thinking it.

I'm picking a Stormfront-lunatic white-supremacist who was sick of the people coming over from Africa being far superior to his lilly-white master race runners.

But, really.  It's all just guessing at this point.

Are they still holding a Saudi suspect?

I think you're overthinking it, too.  I'm going with someone off their meds.  The type of person who believes in space aliens, black helicopters, and the illuminati; all out to get him.

Hollie Maea: Cornelius Dribble:

Alex Jones is already calling it a false flag operation and tying it in with the recent plunge in the price of gold.

The fark does the price of gold have to do with anything?  (I know, that's like asking why Aladdin's flying carpet doesn't sag in the middle, but shouldn't there at least be some internal consistancy?)

Is there a time in history (not counting literature) before now that we have put the mentally ill on a pedestal and broadcast their rantings?

pretty sure he's still in the hospital but no longer viewed as a suspect

Rueened: Secular Liberal Tolerance, Folks!


As opposed to, say, the Salem witch trials, for example?

Under the Republican (and Democrat) philosophy of war, it would now be justifiable for a mid-east country to carry out a drone strike against him, and the wedding party nearby.
