    Re: American Who Recently Visited Pakistan Eyed in Times Square Bomb Plot

    Sorry if this has been mentioned, but did anyone hear what that asshole Mayor Bloomberg said on CBS?

    It was something along the lines of:

    "If I had to bet 25 cents, I would say that this was carried out by a disgruntled American, who is probably angry at the healthcare bill passing and wants to serve some *his voice emphasizes* POLITICAL agenda"


    So he basically says that he believes that rightwing extremists were behind the attack, only to be proven wrong 24 hours later when it is linked to terrorists training and or originating in Pakistan.

    What right wing extremist is going to try and kill innocent Americans in Time Square? I'm not saying that those in the Murray Federal Building weren't innocent, but it was a government building and that is who Mcveigh was after.

    What an asshole. I hate people in power who run their mouths without knowing anything. Keep your suspicions to yourself until the facts present themselves.

    Oh man does the left wish this was linked to Tea Partiers or a right wing extremists group, Bloomberg makes that apparent.

    Few things about your post. First I don't know the difference in why a right wing extremist wouldn't want to kill innocent Americans. Seems to me extremists in general are willing to kill innocent people.

    Second, yeah Bloomberg is an idiot for talking before the investigation was finished. But people will do it and many people probably jumped to the it was a Muslim as soon as it happened. Doesn't make what he said right or smart.

    Third, you generalize the left in wanting it to be Tea Partier. Why do you think this? Just because people on the left might not agree with the Tea Party doesn't mean they want the party linked to what happened.

    There are many on the left who do. There's evidence all over the internet. As an example, examine some posts from democratic underground from a day or two ago. They're on there giggling about whether the "white man's" sweatshirt had a picture of rush limbaugh on it or a Gadsen flag.

    And I said generalize. I have no doubt that there are people on the left that wanted it to be a Tea Partier. But I do not think that the majority of the left wanted it to a a Tea Partier.

    Re: American Who Recently Visited Pakistan Eyed in Times Square Bomb Plot

    MSNBC's Contessa Brewer:

    MSNBC's Contessa Brewer appeared on the Stephanie Miller radio show, a small syndicated left-wing talker, and during her appearance she expressed her "frustration" that the Times Square bomber was a Pakistani terrorist instead of a white person. Apparently Brewer had hoped that a new Tim McVeigh perhaps coming from the Tea Party movement would turn out to be responsible for the attempted bombing in New York instead of just another boring ol' radical Islamist terrorist.

    Brewer told the lefty radio host, "there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country," and intimated that the fact that since it was an Islamic terrorist evil white America would just use that as another excuse to be racists. "I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry," Brewer said.

    So according to Brewer, I guess we should excuse all acts of terror because, after all, it's those evil, racist, white bigots in America that force them to blow people up?

    Google could be your friend, too, if you let it:

    Type in "Contessa Brewer" and "tea party", and take your choice.

    It seems like Islamic extremists kill much more indiscriminately than a right wing extremist would. Any American will suffice for Al-Qaeda, where a right-winger would rather make a statement such as hitting a federal building or killing Supreme Court justices, etc.


    Gee, I wonder why people would jump to the conclusion that it was a Muslim. How many terrorist attacks/plots have taken place or been foiled by Islamic terrorists in the past 10 years as opposed to right-wingers and or left-wingers?

    It's like not profiling people in the airport, but wait, how many hijackings have occurred since the 1980s by individuals who weren't Muslim?. Not very many.

    Your 3rd point has been addressed by others.

    And that's different from any other terrorist how? Sure Islamic terrorists have declared war against the United States, but so have Christian terrorists who blow up abortion clinics and harm otherwise innocent people in the name of their particular ideology. A terrorist is a terrorist is a terrorist. They all have declared war upon any sovereign nation in which they commit their despicable acts, and all should be punished equally as murderers.

Years of military service and a propensity for plain speak have made it easy for me. I hope you find this post useful.
    I found it quite useful, thanks. So we're in agreement, then? That Islamic terrorists and Christian terrorists are both nothing more than terrorists, and if you have no problem labelling such vile murderers acting in the name of Islam as 'Islamic terrorists', you have no problem labelling those commiting their crimes in the name of Christianity as 'Christian terrorists'.

    Personally, I feel that the world is better off without either.
