Wendy's Chili: The bomb didn't use gasoline, it used--wait for it--gun powder.

It's a good thing fireworks don't have gunpowder in them.

It's a good thing fireworks are banned in Massachusetts.


Yes, and they are banned in New Orleans, but somehow the guys around the corner from me haven't had any problems setting them off on the Fourth of July and New Year's Eve every year for the past seven years. I mean, no one has ever been able to drive fireworks across state lines.

Which is exactly what the idiots whining and crying about 'Let's hope it's a white guy!!' are doing about white people, because they assume that the gut reaction of all those other white people (the ones saying that are always white) will be to go out int he street and start lynching brown people.

Self-hating racists are the worst.

FrancoFile: RexTalionis: SlothB77: Second, Islamists declaring terrorism in the name of allah, with muslim groups taking responsibility, i.e., an islamic terrorist group took credit for the failed Times Square bombing, are existential threats.

I don't think you understand the word "existential." An existential threat is one that will end the existence to the thing that the threat is existential to. Unless those Islamists apparently also have hundreds of nuclear weapons aimed at us, it is not an existential threat.

People just like to use the word "existential threat" as a short-hand for "wow, I'm really worried, look at me pissing in my pants and soiling myself." Stop it. It's sloppy. It's inaccurate. It's intellectually dishonest and it's stupid.


But but but I read Nietsche in my women's studies undergraduate seminar on deconstructing the tropes of the patriachal white hegemony.  So there.


Nietsche wrote cook books?

Old_Chief_Scott: You know, I came in to this thread after reading the article all set to make a long-winded comment on the quality of editorial writing in American Journalism these days. That was, until I read  PocketNinja's analysis of the probable bomber profile and the follow on statements based on his post. It has so distracted me that I have instead a little song running through my head. You can all sing along if you like. It's done to the tune of "What Do You Do With a Problem Like Maria"  from the Julie Andrew's star vehicle "The Sound of Music". It goes like this:

Oooooooo, everyone here agrees with PocketNinjaaaaaa
Everyone here except for muck4doooooooo
Everyone here agrees with PocketNinjaaaaaa
So what's a poor muck4doo to f*cking dooooooooo?

I hate you for putting that in my head ninja.


LOL! I love PocketNinja, just didn't think was one of his better efforts. I can see others disagree with me though.

To be fair, if someone bombed a minority neighborhood, killing mostly black people, I'd hope it WASN'T a white guy.

Not "the gubermint is poisonin' us with fluoride and imported sponges from gay-lovin' countries" crazy, more like "those buildings look structurally unsound, so I'll deliver a contained blast of nails to provide architectural support, which will count as a good deed towards getting me out of this Matrix-like virtual reality simulator" kind of crazy.


The current evidence points that way. No group claiming responsibility; no political statement issued; no real sanity to the attack points (yes, they had large concentrations of people, but so does, say, Wall Street); no prior warning via known terrorist groups...yeah, sounds like a loner, and from that we can safely conclude 'lunatic', because blowing up bombs is not actually the action of a sane person.

But why? The overwhelming majority (99.9999%) of white people in America will be appalled and denounce this. It's not like either African-Americans are going to think that suddenly the population think that it's ok, or go out in the street and start lynching white people. It would do exactly zero damage to race relations, as much as white power types might wish it did.

It's not like African-Americans would react 'Oh, the bomber was one of us? Then I guess it's not as bad!'

Author of TFA conveniently ignores a lot of facts to support his stupid narrative.

For one thing, we respond differently to acts of terrorism committed by American citizens because even terrorist Americans still have rights under the Constitution (though admittedly eroded under the Patriot Act).  This is why people had concerns about Al-Awlaki - we bombed him into a fine red mist just like foreign nationals, and while we're fine blasting the hell out of other people willy-nilly, we get uncomfortable about doing it to our own people.

For another, organized groups have claimed responsibility for acts of Islamic terrorism... but (as someone asked upthread, I think) what groups was he working with?  How about Eric Rudolph?

By way of contrast - Weather Undergound, which DID have a bunch of white people, WAS treated as a major, credible threat, and was hounded by the authorities in ways that DID break a bunch of laws regarding their rights and due process and all that - it's why a lot of those charges against them got dropped, in fact.

And now that I think about it... anybody know where Bill Ayers was on Monday?

/Just sayin'.
 
2013-04-17 10:45:22 AM

mekki: DamnYankees: For the psyche of Americans, TFA is basically correct. We deal with terrorists from white people much more sanely, as pathetic as that is.

Please, that's because most mass killers who are white are individual killers and not part of a group. They don't have ties to anyone to point fingers to. Compared to killers who come from terrorist groups. And when a killer who is white can be tied to a group, such as the Weather Underground or the Manson Family, you better believe there is a hunt for people who fit their description.

White male privilege my ass. If this was a serial killing, the profiling would be white male first. That's how the Beltway Snipers were able to allude the police for so long. They didn't fit the white male profile the FBI had on them.

/That article is a joke.


I think you missed the point of the article - namely that we don't marginalize white men as a group even though they are responsible for most serial killings. Even when the police or FBI suspect a white male, they don't go rounding up white males en masse.
How does suspecting a white male as the culprit negatively affect you? Do people treat you suspiciously as you go about your daily life?
 
2013-04-17 10:46:10 AM
The downside to it being a white loner is that they're really good at playing hide and seek. Eric Rudolph: four bombings in 18 months before he became a suspect, and five more years before they tracked him down. Ted Kaczynski: 17 years of active bombitude before he got cocky and put his manifesto out there. Walter Leroy Moody was on the loose for only 8 months after he killed that judge and lawyer in two separate bombings, but only because he used a unique bomb construction technique that some supersmart ATF guy remembered from 17 years earlier. McVeigh might have gotten away clean, except he was driving without a license plate and carrying a gun. White guy whackjobs blend in, particularly in today's climate of anti-gummint hysteria.

Scythed: After OKC, the Militia movement was all anyone talked about when it came to US terrorism. It took 9/11 to change that. And, not surprisingly, while the militia movement still exists and is dangerous, Islamism is still and rightfully considered a bigger threat because it's killed more people and has a large base of support outside of this country where we can't get to it.


"Islamism" refers to factions that emerged in response to regional issues, such as the failure of secular nationalist policies to improve economies in countries like Egypt. These groups tend to form "reactionary" policies, such as enforcing an interpretation of Islamic law that they perceive to be a return to a simpler time. But the point I'm trying to make is that "Islamist" factions rose in response to local issues and operate locally. For example, radical Sunni Muslim groups in Pakistan (who have already been accused of the marathon bombing), have been busy killing Shia Muslims and secular candidates in upcoming elections in Pakistan. They don't have the resources to conduct large-scale operations on the other side of the planet, although I'll concede that isolated bombing attacks would be within their capabilities, as it would be for literally anyone else in the world. But they have more pressing goals right in Pakistan.

Even the al-Qaeda franchises are preoccupied in their own regions and are incapable of sustained operations on American soil. In conclusion there is presently no "Islamic threat" that can seriously damage the US. The book "Islamophobia" by Deepa Kumar explains all of this really well.

The straps on the backpack in the first picture would be about the same width as the white lane marking in the second picture.  I think the fact that there are pieces of debris in the second that look similar to the first is coincidence, but the pictures were resized to make one think they're the same piece.  Unless that's not a lane marking, but I'm pretty sure it is.  There's not much else to give scale to that picture.

Because racial tensions are not in a good place. We don't need roving bands of ignorant rednecks killing Sikhs because some brown person did it. And we don't need roaming bands of ignorant thugs killing the local crackers because some albino motherfarker did it.

In other words, every race has its roaming bands of jacktards, and I'd rather not see them energized to go do something misguided.

Rev. Skarekroe: What if it's just a maniac who gets off on seeing people killed?


I was about to post this in another thread but this is kind of my point. Everybody is looking for an agenda with it...

It's probably been discussed because I can't even try to keep up with the flow of information on these threads, but this seems like an exceptionally demented plan to me. People train for six months to a year, devoting incredible amounts of time, training, and energy to these marathons. This is the pinnacle of all that training, the home stretch when the finish line is in your view. So dickwad places devices designed to take out the runners' most valued possessions: their lower extremities. Right at the finish line. It's twisted enough as is, but that angle occurred to me last night, and if that were the case, we have a truly sick individual, and maybe a larger global motive isn't the context we're looking for at all.

Except that both of these things don't happen.

In the aftermath of 9/11, the number of violent assaults on Muslims/people perceived as Muslims could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Yeah, there were just so few even though you had so much hand-wringing about making sure to point out that not all Muslims were not terrorists. Bush himself came and said that multiple times.

Last year, an MLK parade was bombed by a couple of white supremacists, and no 'roving bands of thugs' went out to beat white people in the aftermath.


Americans have moved on from lynching a long time ago, and it's time to stop pretending like we're on the brink of a race war, for fark's sake. America is not perfect, but it's not Europe either (read up on the treatment of Romani people and race riots due to disenfranchisement in France)

Sensationlist headline or no, the fact is that when a terrorist act is committed in the name of Allah, or by Mooslims, the reaction is far greater than when its a white guy. This is for the most part the case in most of the world with the exception of Britain, (and that is changing). People seem to be able to sleep better and deal with it easier when they consider it the work of a lone wacko. When the bomber is part of a larger group or part of a larger group ideology (should he in fact be a lone wolf) than thats when we do all the pants shiatting and giving up our liberties.

and thats why i essentially agree with the essence of the article. We are ramping down our foreign wars, we are seeing cuts to the military budget, we are seeing a stronger voice for peace and a stronger voice for personal liberties. The last thing we need is a Mooslim terrorist attack to reverse that course. We've given up a lot and allowed a lot of people in government to do shady shiat and we can't let that continue.

Not only that, but inbred rednecks were beating Sikhs, Hindus, and Ethiopians because they wore headpieces that looked like Islamic turbans, even though they don't have anything to do with each other.  Americans are, by and large, racist pieces of shiat because of the entrenched xenophobia in the deep South.

Right, i remember after the beltway sniper we were all trying to get blacks deported. Then right after Virginia Tech we were all like, " All asians have to be removed from the country now!"

People knee jerk about radical muslims because they are vocal about killing americans as an ideology and have a history of trying to do it to some success.

Statistically, African Americans kill more Americans every year (most other African Americans) than foreigners could dream of, but there is no effort underway to deport all of them.
 
2013-04-17 11:02:13 AM

I thought one of them did go off, might have been just a controlled explosion. I am guessing that the guy who was arrested in the same investigation was cleared of the charges.


Either way, it didn't result in a race riot and African-Americans just killing white people in the street.

Why?  Maybe last September someone decided to explode a bomb at the 2013 Boston Marathon because it's a huge event and they'll get off on the publicity.  The day and the supported group may be totally irrelevant.

Are you saying if it was run on April 18th or in support of Save The Whales the bomber would not have struck since he couldn't send his message?

Pocket Ninja: Can you imagine if he turns out to be gay? Hoooo boy, that would muddy the water.

How about a gay lone wolf terrorist who had a brief career as an abortion doctor specializing in late-term abortions.

Oh, oh, I know. I gay lone wolf former late-term abortionist terrorist who owns over a dozen handguns and automatic rifles all purchased at gun shows. And he entered the country illegally 15 years ago and has been living here ever since. And he's an atheist.

An atheist, gay, undocumented immigrant former late-term abortion providing and non-background-checked gun owning lone wolf terrorist. Now  thatwould be something.


I know you are just PN doing your thing (which you do quite well) but I felt the need to point something out.
25 of my 33 firerms have been purchased at gun shows. Of those 25, only 4 have been purchased without background checks as they were private sales. Most of the guns there do require paperwork.

BgJonson79: FrancoFile: RexTalionis: SlothB77: Second, Islamists declaring terrorism in the name of allah, with muslim groups taking responsibility, i.e., an islamic terrorist group took credit for the failed Times Square bombing, are existential threats.

I don't think you understand the word "existential." An existential threat is one that will end the existence to the thing that the threat is existential to. Unless those Islamists apparently also have hundreds of nuclear weapons aimed at us, it is not an existential threat.

People just like to use the word "existential threat" as a short-hand for "wow, I'm really worried, look at me pissing in my pants and soiling myself." Stop it. It's sloppy. It's inaccurate. It's intellectually dishonest and it's stupid.


But but but I read Nietsche in my women's studies undergraduate seminar on deconstructing the tropes of the patriachal white hegemony.  So there.

Nietsche wrote cook books?


You didn't get to the appendix in Thus Spoke Zarathustra?  Kick-ass recipes for schnitzel, baked cabbage, and goulash.  And his compote is to die for.

Carn: Joe Blowme: I just want to know where Bill Ayers was when this went down.

Just askin questions right?  Just as likely that Glenn Beck was the mastermind behind it.
