After a full week of watching the left go from trying to blame the tea party for the Boston bombing, to cautioning people not to speculate about motives once the suspects were identified, to actually making excuses for them, The Five’s Greg Gutfeld has had enough.
“What do hacks do when they’re wrong about terror?” Gutfeld asked. “They cling to relativism. Yes, Muslim extremism is no different than any other kind of extremism – but in order to make that stick, you’ve got to really suck at math.”
I think he’s hit on something! Liberals are notoriously bad at math!
The Conversation: News Alert: Boston Marathon Bombing Suspects Motivated by Religion not Ben Affleck Movies:
Via the AP:
Two U.S. officials say preliminary evidence from an interrogation suggests the suspects in the Boston Marathon attack were motivated by religion but were apparently not tied to any Islamic terrorist groups.
Someone alert MSNBC host, Melissa Harris Perry, because over the weekend, she bloviated that Tsarnaev’s faith is about as relevant to the investigation as Ben Affleck movies.
Her panel guests agreed and added that Americans have to “otherize” violent actors in order to absolve themselves from responsibility for or connection to their violence.
Actually, no. I feel no responsibility for, or connection to, what they did in Boston. Only seething anger, sadness, and revulsion – aka normal reactions.
“We don’t really know,” said Harris-Perry, throwing her hands up about the discussion into the Tsarnaev’s motives. “The younger brother, he’s getting all kinds of tweets from his friends. I think part of the answer is that it’s still an open question.”
Wrong again. By the time they had this discussion it was no longer an “open question.” It was pretty darn obvious that they were motivated by radical Islam. You had to be willfully blind not to have picked up on that, by then.
