Most decent Americans continue to mourn the injuries and loss of life suffered at the Boston Marathon. Indeed, decent, patriotic Americans are still in shock over the tragedy, and continue to pray for the victims and their families.
There are exceptions, of course. Some dim-witted liberals are trying to blame the sequestration fiasco for the carnage, as if Marathon officials deliberately pulled back on security just to save a few pennies, driven by the GOP obsession with old-school notions like frugality, financial accountability, and the fiduciary responsibility of elected officials with respect to taxpayer money.
Regrettably, morally-despicable extremists on the left are even expressing profound hatred for the Caucasian race and hope that the Boston Bomber will turn out to be a white American!
What inspired, elevated thought from the birds on the left at a time of deep national loss and fear!
As reported at the reference, the demented left is well represented at Salon magazine which published the following hate speech and vitriol:
As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.
This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, 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 men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.
Likewise, in the context of terrorist attacks, such privilege means white non-Islamic terrorists are typically portrayed not as representative of whole groups or ideologies, but as “lone wolf” threats to be dealt with as isolated law enforcement matters. Meanwhile, non-white or developing-world terrorism suspects are often reflexively portrayed as representative of larger conspiracies, ideologies and religions that must be dealt with as systemic threats — the kind potentially requiring everything from law enforcement action to military operations to civil liberties legislation to foreign policy shifts.
“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation,” writes author Tim Wise. “White privilege is knowing that if this bomber turns out to be white, the United States government will not bomb whatever corn field or mountain town or stale suburb from which said bomber came, just to ensure that others like him or her don’t get any ideas. And if he turns out to be a member of the Irish Republican Army we won’t bomb Dublin. And if he’s an Italian-American Catholic we won’t bomb the Vatican.”
Because of these undeniable and pervasive double standards, the specific identity of the Boston Marathon bomber (or bombers) is not some minor detail — it will almost certainly dictate what kind of governmental, political and societal response we see in the coming weeks. That means regardless of your particular party affiliation, if you care about everything from stopping war to reducing the defense budget to protecting civil liberties to passing immigration reform, you should hope the bomber was a white domestic terrorist. Why? Because only in that case will privilege work to prevent the Boston attack from potentially undermining progress on those other issues.”
The author of this illuminating perspectivel is David Sirota who is obviously bitterly ashamed of his race (he is white) and desperately needs a racial make over as soon as possible.
In the interim, law enforcement would be well advised to keep a careful watch on Sirota to assure that this guilt –laden liberal nut ball does not make an impulsive purchase of a pressure cooker and or black back pack.
