If you ever needed evidence that President Obama’s rosy view of Islam is dangerous, you need look no further than the Boston Marathon bombings.
It’s not unfair to point a finger of blame at President Obama in this case because it is his peculiar bias that has placed blinders on the Homeland Security Department and encouraged the selective filtering of the media.
Shortly after the Boston Marathon bombings killed three and injured 178, the media wasted little time dragging out the usual leftist fantasies about the bombers being Right-wing or Tea Partiers. The president himself initially refused to use the word “terrorism” because he didn’t want to imply a Muslim connection, and presidential spokesman Jay Carney floated the notion that the bombings had something to do with tax day, implying that the Administration suspected the Tea Party, despite there being no history of Tea Party violence.
Almost from Obama’s first day in office, the Administration has been accusing the Tea Party, veterans, Bible-believing Christians and conservatives in general without any evidence of being potential terrorists. The mainstream media and its lesser Soros-inspired cousins at the Huffington Post, Salon and elsewhere didn’t need to be told twice and ran with the theme, hammering on it over the past several years whenever a mass murder hits the news.
Unfortunately for the media and the Department of Homeland Security, one after another mass murderer or would-be bomber in memory has been a clear leftist or Muslim. The liberal politics of mass killers gets scant coverage from the media that fervently hope to report on a conservative crazy, but it’s the media’s and Administration’s particularly blind eye for Muslim terror that is proving increasingly dangerous to America.
When the Boston bombers turned out to be Muslim, the disappointment in some corners of the media was almost palpable. Despite the fundamentalist Islamic faith that clearly inspired the suspects, there are those in the media, like MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry, who still insist that the bombers’ involvement with radical Islam is irrelevant. Even the Blaze, in reporting on the MSNBC host’s comments, seemed to partially agree with her that the connection to Islam has not been proved.
Now not only has it been revealed that the brothers were influenced by a fundamentalist Islam, but the FBI is looking for a sleeper cell of 12 or possibly more radical Muslims who trained the brothers and had been planning the attack for some time. In fact, federal authorities had interviewed the older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, years before the bombing after being told by Russian officials that he was an Islamic radical and potential threat. The feds let him go, apparently unable to connect any of the dots that had put him on Russian law enforcement’s radar.
Since President Obama came into office, the federal government has become progressively more desensitized to Muslim terror. There has been evidence produced publicly that the Administration has been infiltrated at many levels, including the White House, by agents of the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamists who have maneuvered themselves into positions of influence.
It’s also clear from the president’s non-reaction to such reports that Obama is OK with those people in those positions. The fact of radical Muslim influence in the Administration is not inconsequential, as law enforcement agencies such as the FBI have been altering training of agents to increase “sensitivity” toward Muslims and to focus their energies chasing the Administration’s phantom Right-wing terror threats.
Besides allowing a scheme like the Boston bombing to go undetected, national security experts have fretted that the Administration’s obtuseness on the issue of Muslim terror has allowed terrorists to slip unchecked across our wide-open borders, and it no doubt has influenced policies such as funding the increasingly dictatorial Egyptian government and the al-Qaida-linked Syrian “rebels.”
If the FBI is able to crack open the Muslim terror cell behind the Boston bombing, it will be despite the Obama Administration, not because of it.
