Condolences to the left-wing MSM
I’m so sorry that the hopes of David Sirota of Salon have been dashed. Sirota wrote, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” Sirota went on to opine, “Privilege tends to determine, he writes, which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals…a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.”
Condolences must also go out to Tingles, aka Chris Matthews who impugned that radical Tea Party-like folks must be behind the bombing, “It’s filing day for the federal income tax, which does cause some emotions around the country, sometimes in the wrong parts of the brain anyway.” Ahhh can we share a collective sigh of commiseration on how wrong his hopes were?
Then we must share a few thoughts for CNN’s Christine Amanpour who “hoped beyond hope” that it would not turn out to be Middle Eastern Muslims behind the attack. She only gets a little murmured ‘so sorry’ since her hopes were partially fulfilled: They are Chechnyian Muslims.
There are too many other idiot journalists out there to name but sympathy is extended for having such tiny little pea brains. From where I’m standing, it is far worse for the perpetrators to be American-born folks (on the right or the left) who so hate their own country and their own neighbours and people that they would do something like this. Far better that it be foreign nationals or illegals or on-Visa folks attacking a culture and country of which they do not feel themselves a part.
