And once again, as with any act of Domestic Terrorism, the mainstream
“Liberal” media pontificates that the bombings were perpetrated by “Right-Wing Extremists.”
Following in the footsteps of ABC’s Brian Ross, who falsely accused a
Tea Party member of being the same James Holmes who killed all those people in the Aurora movie theater last year, CNN – “The Most Trusted Name in News”- national security analyst, Peter Bergen, speculated the following less than two hours
after this tragedy (when NO ONE really knows what happened):
“Once the device – if it is a device – is found: what kind of explosives
were used. So for instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, this is the
signature of Al Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which
are much harder to get a hold of now – that might be some kind of
right-wing extremist… We’ve also seen, for instance, right-wing groups
trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon in 2010.”
Watching Jake Tapper interview this clown was painful to say the

Oklahoma City Bombing which was perpetrated by Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh, who was more of a neo-Nazi than a right-wing extremist, was motivated by an obscure novel called The Turner Diaries which was assigned reading for a Political Science class I took during undergrad.
And let me tell you, The Turner Diaries has nothing to do with any
“right-wing ideologies I know of, like limiting the size and scope of

terrorism to overthrow the US Government and establish one based on
Nazi Germany, which was a Socialist form of government run by

I think that Arabs are the only people more vilified than conservatives in the media these days.
Then you have the Alex Jones’ of the world saying this is a “false flag” event perpetrated by government actors as a precursor to Martial Law and rounding everyone up and throwing them in FEMA camps.
Yet as late as 7 pm CST, no one seemed to even know how many were killed and injured, let alone who had done it!
All these talking heads need to stop slandering groups of people and go back to reporting what is known instead of engaging in hateful conjecture.
