One thing about mass killings, the Left’s response is predictable.
Authorities are diligently seeking information about who could have planted the two bombs that killed at least three people and injured hundreds Monday at the Boston Marathon.
But in the media and in political circles, you can almost see the Left salivating with hope that the perpetrators will have some ties to conservative Christians, Tea Party members or other Americans on the Right.
They always hope that, of course, but the media and the White House seem to be — if you’ll pardon the phrase — a bit gun-shy after Christopher Dorner and the Benghazi attacks.
Dorner was the ex-police officer gone whack-a-mole who decided to start taking out a list of people who he imagined had something to do with his firing and subsequent problems. Packing heavy weaponry, he led Southern California police on an extended chase into the mountains for a final showdown before he apparently killed himself.
The Left would have loved to blame Dorner on conservatives but were denied the opportunity because Dorner left behind a lengthy manifesto praising President Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, gun control and just about every other left-wing icon and issue he could think of.
In Benghazi, Libya, the Left was so desperate to blame conservatives somehow for the White House’s botched gun-smuggling operation that the president, secretary of state and mainstream media for weeks nursed the story that the deaths of four Americans were brought about because of anger over an anti-Islam YouTube video, a laughable sham that some leftists still cling to.
The Left is desperate to advance its “conservatives are the real threat to America” theme, but they’re about 300-to-1 in the hole. Between Muslim terrorists and run-of-the-mill psychotic liberal “activists” (exclusive of left-wing regimes like that of Nazi Germany), the Left is way ahead in the mass murder department.
Still, having the odds against them hasn’t stopped people like CNN’s Chris Matthews, New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof and the “journalists” at the Huffington Post from trying to tie the bombings to the Tea Party or other conservative group. After all, they all point out, it was Tax Day, and it was also Patriots Day. …
So clearly it must be the Tea Party.
All these mental giants get their talking points straight from the White House basement. Former presidential adviser David Axelrod commented about President Obama once again avoiding using the word “terrorism” in addressing the nation about a terrorist incident. He 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. 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.”
Tax day. “Pro — you know.”
These people are like a dog ordered to sit with a sausage balanced on its nose.
The historic odds are that the bombing was carried out by some sort of Muslim terror organization or lone operative. But if the Left smells anything to connect the suspect to conservatives, watch out. It could become the false flag event the Left has been waiting for.
