American blood was still flowing through Boylston Street in Boston when an article titled, “Let’s Hope the Boston Bomber Is a White American” was published in the left-wing rag known as Salon magazine last Tuesday.
The author of this provocative drivel was David Sirota a white male, apparently disenchanted with his race (he is white) and perhaps his nationality as well.
In his article, Sirota took the American media and public to the word shed for engaging in the crime of “white privilege,” which, in his righteous view, wrongfully blames “Religion of Peace,” Muslims for the violent deeds of Bible-thumping, toothless, white Americans.
Sirota wrote, among other things, at the reference:
If recent history is any guide, if the bomber ends up being a white anti-government extremist, white privilege will likely mean the attack is portrayed as just an isolated incident — one that has no bearing on any larger policy debates. Put another way, white privilege will work to not only insulate whites from collective blame, but also to insulate the political debate from any fallout from the attack.Condolences and black roses are due Sirota: His “make a wish” hate speech turned out completely bass- ackwards as the Boston bombers ended up being Jihadist bozos, also known as ethnic Chechen immigrants.
It will probably be much different if the bomber ends up being a Muslim and/or a foreigner from the developing world. As we know from our own history, when those kind of individuals break laws in such a high-profile way, America often cites them as both proof that entire demographic groups must be targeted, and that therefore a more systemic response is warranted. At that point, it’s easy to imagine conservatives citing Boston as a reason to block immigration reform defense spending cuts and the Afghan War withdrawal and to further expand surveillance and other encroachments on civil liberties.”
Yes, the youngest bomber was an American citizen, as of September 11, 2012. Still, the lack of a white connection must be highly distressing to Sirota and his kind.
In fact, it is easy to imagine liberals citing Boston as a reason to demand greater diversity among FBI agents, since the agents in Boston were clearly involved in the Unconstitutional practice of racial profiling with a special bias against Chechen immigrants.
Liberals will also use Boston as justification for declaring that Boston police were guilty of abuse of power which should prompt repeal of the 2nd Amendment and immediate release of the surviving “White Hat” terrorist.
So it is that we Americans continue to mature and grow as the Obama administration makes terrorism in our streets the new reality!
