Boston’s Explosions and the Left’s Bias


The blood is still on the streets of Boston and even though Mr. Obama has stated in a public press conference that we should not be quick to come to unsubstantiated conclusions, the left seems to have no difficulty in doing just that.

Yet, there are people who continue to believe that there is no “leftwing” bias in the news.  These people amaze me.

We do not know anything yet.  Though we have heard reports (that have been since denied) that a Saudi national suspect was being guarded at a hospital), nothing has been confirmed yet.

However, the left, instead of focusing on that bit of potential news, would rather make it up as they go.  Here are words from Charles Pierce (Esquire):  “Obviously, nobody knows anything yet, but I would caution folks jumping to conclusions about foreign terrorism to remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.” [1]

There have been just less than 21,000 terrorist acts since the original 9/11 and they have been perpetrated by radical Islamists.  The ones that have been attempted (and foiled) here on U.S. soil have resulted in arrests of Muslims as well, as the alleged perpetrators.  I’m specifically referring to individuals who were planning to set off bombs that would have resulted in death and/or injury.

This tragedy in Boston occurred because someone deliberately placed bombs near where thousands of people would be gathered.  Aside from Timothy McVeigh (as Pierce defaults to), the rest of the motley group of terrorist wannabes have all been Muslims.

There is also apparently footage of someone placing bags or knapsacks in garbage cans near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  It could turn out to be absolutely nothing, or it could turn out to be surveillance footage of the perpetrator putting the bombs in place that ultimately killed and dismembered people in Boston.

The sad part is that it wasn’t just Charles Pierce bagging on individuals on the right as possibly being potential perpetrators.  Chris Matthews and CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen also speculated about the possibility of the perpetrator(s) being home-grown “right-wing” terrorists along the same lines as Timothy McVeigh.

Why do these people jump to this conclusion?  Because they are leftists and they see the world with skewed vision.  While it could be someone from some Islamic militant group or an extremist from American soil, the left immediately targets the right because that is what they do.

If it turns out that it is a person or persons directly linked to Al Qaeda or another radical Islamic group, will the left apologize?  Of course not.  They’ll just dig themselves in deeper.

One person tweeted (regarding the possible suspect being a Saudi national) that we should not jump to conclusions because not all Saudi people are bad.  I would concur, but you can bet if the perpetrator turns out to be someone on the extreme right who is from America, the press will go for the jugular as often as possible, grouping all those on the right as potential terrorists.  They’ve done it before and they will do it again.

Wouldn’t it be great if we actually had unbiased news?  Can’t remember what that is like anymore because the left rules the airwaves on mainstream television.  It makes me sick to my stomach.

One person left a comment on a page reporting this info that said, “Don’t worry– CNN will figure out how make him a Christian Saudi National born and raised in Alabama by a KKK Grand dragon– just give ’em a day or two.. Takes time to doctor material.”

I think we should wait and see what transpires over the next few days or a week before we start coming to conclusions, shouldn’t we?  The other thing we can do is pray for those who have been harmed by these explosions.  I cannot imagine what they are going through right now.

Also, apparently there are some fake charities already springing up to help those in Boston.  Check your sources before you give any of your hard-earned money!

In the meantime, stay up with The Brenner Brief for the latest information on the terrible tragedy in Boston.
