No big surprises in the note in the boat. The Joker said his brother Speedbump was a “martyr in paradise,” and that the victims in Boston were “collateral damage” for Muslim civilian casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan. He praised Allah and said, “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims.” Tell that to the Syrians, EBT boy.
The big question is, Why the monthlong blackout on the note in the boat? Why didn’t the feds release it immediately?
And the answer is obvious. It didn’t fit the Politically Correct narrative, that the reasons for this shocking atrocity remained a mystery, a riddle, an enigma, wink wink nudge nudge.
The Beautiful People were all toeing the PC line, that the bomber couldn’t have possibly been anybody except a cracker redneck Tea Party member. That was the unanimous verdict on MSNBC. Hey, it happened on Tax Day. That was David Axelrod’s theory. A blogger said he was praying that it was a “white” terrorist, because if the bombers were who they turned out to be, it would hurt Dear Leader’s agenda.
This Benghazi-like agitprop went right to the top.
Barack Obama, April 15: “We still do not know who did this, or why, and people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts.”
Technically, we didn’t know, but …
Deval Patrick, April 16: “There are times when all kinds of forces conspire to make people think of categories of people sometimes in uncharitable ways.”
Even after he was arrested, the Joker was portrayed by the rumpswab media as a scrawny, floppy-haired “All-American boy.” Some stories are just too good to check out, especially if the facts will demolish Dear Leader’s talking points.
The note in the boat turned up Friday night. Seems likely that Deval Patrick knew what was in it soon thereafter. But that Sunday, he goes on “Face the Nation” and Bob Schieffer asks him if he has “any clearer idea” why the “two young men” did it.
“Not yet, Bob. Uh, and it’s hard, it’s hard for me and for many to imagine what could motivate uh, people to, uh, harm, uh, innocent men, women and children, uh, in the way that, uh, these two fellows did.”
What has become of the American Left today, where maintaining the narrative is more important than the truth?
