    Chris Matthews: Did Boston Bombing Have Anything To Do With Tax Day

    Chris Matthews: ‘Normally’ Domestic Terrorists ‘Tend to Be on the Far Right’

  • ninja

    We need stronger bomb control laws,

  • Ratboy

    the reason Obama does not want to say terrorist or terrorism – 2014 elections!

  • Raz

    Papa glad to hear your friends are okay. Talk about ‘but for the grace of God go I.”

  • Bobbyv

    Matthew,

    The problem for me is that it seems ok to generalize when certain groups are involved. If this is a right wing group that will be the focus to demonize the right, but if it is a Muslim group we will quickly be told you cannot blame everyone for the acts of a few. I agree with that but it should work both ways.

    Tingles is trying to blame the right or a loner. No way it could be Al Qaeda. The wrong President is in White House.

    The problem for me is that it seems ok to generalize when certain groups are involved. If this is a right wing group that will be the focus to demonize the right, but if it is a Muslim group we will quickly be told you cannot blame everyone for the acts of a few.

    Again, this seems like reading way too much into the phrase “right-wing groups,” as somehow a demonization of ‘the right.’ If an analyst had said “this attack has all the hallmarks of left-wing eco-terrorism,” no sane person would see that as a demonization of Democrats, left-wing voters, or people who care about the environment. MSNBC, from the comments posted here, seems to be politicizing it, but I stand behind my judgment that people are just being over-sensitive about what Bergen said on CNN. We should be able to describe separatists as “right-wing extremists” or Al Qaeda as “Islamic extremists” without people having a freaking fit.

    @SP…………………….Glad your fiends are ok.

  • Jeff

    ninja,
    The President was scared to use the word terrorism. What would make him do that?

    Maybe he has just a LITTLE more INFO than YOU!

  • Jeff

    Fox News contributor Erik Rush tweeted, then deleted: “Everybody do the National Security Ankle Grab! Let’s bring more Saudis in without screening them! C’mon! #bostonmarathon,” then responded to a tweet asking if he was “already blaming Muslims”: ““Yes, they’re evil. Kill them all.”

    Wall Street Journalist: tweet
    @jamestaranto Obama is going to make a statement. Boehner is going to have a moment of silence. Advantage GOP.

    They are my friends so fiends is not out of the realm of possibility.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Tingles is out of his mind. He will lose his mind it if it turns out to be Al Qaeda.

  • ninja

    @Jeff………..If killing innocent people with bombs isn’t terrorism, what is?

  • Coffee Steve

    I just hope they catch all those responsible for this.

    Peace everyone
