Escape your life for a little while — come play in mine.

And this is why the MSM sucks.

Posted by Lissa on May 6, 2010

A gentle reminder, lest you have forgotten:

This post notes that at first the “out liberals” (those not in the closet, like Matthews) first tried to blame the Times Square bomb on the “right-wing.”

Now that it’s known, as could easily have been guessed, to have been an Islamized immigrant, they have a new slam against the “right-wing” — that we will indulge in an orgy of racist retribution for the act.

That’s beautiful. They can’t lose. First we’re blamed for doing it in the first place. If that doesn’t pan out, there’s always Plan B — blame us for an overreaction to the event and claim that that overreaction is in fact worse than the crime that provoked it.

An overreaction, incidentally, that never actually comes. Even after 9/11, there were only three or four acts of documented anti-Muslim violence in the entire 300-million-strong country.

Plan A: The right did it.

Plan B: Okay, the right didn’t do it, per se, but now the right is going to go on a murderous racist crime-spree in reaction to it.

Every time. Ev-er-y time.

Oh, and Mayor Bloomberg?  Blow it out your ass.

“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.

Let’s say it all together:  “ONLY A VERY, VERY, VERY TINY PERCENTAGE OF MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS.  THE VAST MAJORITY OF MUSLIMS ARE LAW-ABIDING FOLKS WHO JUST WANT TO LIVE THEIR LIVES, THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE.”  Okay?

That being said —

Of course, whackjob murderers are whackjob murderers, no matter which God they claim to worship.  Scott Roeder appears to be Christian, as do the Hutaree fruitcakes.

So let’s compromise.  I will refrain from assuming the perpetrator of any new terrorist incident is a Muslim; you, MSM, will stop assuming it was those nasty right-wing tea-baggers.

Okay?

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

    You’re right that this reaction was totally predictable. Buuuutttt…you do have to consider that the last guy to fly an airplane into a building here was a homegrown insane-o-path, and the Eschelon Building incident in Austin was fairly recent.

    Still, it’s funny how sure – like absolutely sure – some people are that *all* bad things rained down upon American soil are the fault of the GOP. It’s idiotic.

    Also, you said it: whakjob murderers are whakjob murderers.

    Crazy people do things because they’re crazy, not because they’re christians, or republicans. It drives me insane when people fail to recognize this.

    In a world with a billion muslims, that small percentage still amounts to several million people who want to kill me.

    Contrast this with virtually no Christians, buddhists, or FSM adherents, and only a small handful of atheists that I’m aware of. Yup, my default assumption for every attack is Islamic fanatic, young, male, foreign or with foreign ties. The profile simply works.
