Boston Marathon Bombing … inspiring follow ups

On April 15, 2013, Celeste Corcoran went to the Boston Marathon with her husband, Kevin, and daughter, high school senior Sydney, to cheer on Celeste’s sister, Carmen, who was running in her first marathon. The bombs took Celeste’s (47) legs; Sydney (18) suffered near-fatal shrapnel wounds.

A distinction without a difference

2013_05 Terrorists are all alike

May 4, 2013: Bill Ayers said people can’t equate the bombings that he and others in the Weather Underground did 40 or so years ago with the Boston Marathon bombings. He said to do so would be like comparing folks enjoying a little target practice at a shooting range with what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. I’m so sure Weather Undergrounders like Bill’s common law wife made it to the FBI’s Top Ten Wanted List because they were so peaceful and law-abiding.

But. But. But.

According to Bill, he and his violent extremist bomber buds never KILLED anyone.

Too bad he’s either lying or all those drugs he’s used have damaged his memory.

In 1969 and 1970, he and his terrorist thugs detonated more than half a dozen bombs in public places. The fact noone outside their own incompetent members was killed is due more to luck than lack of lethal intent.

In March 1970, while preparing a nailbomb the Weather Underground intended to detonate at a dance at a local Army base, three of them blew themselves up.

And while they didn’t take credit for a lethal bombing at a San Franciso Police Department the month before, there is good reason to believe they did it.

Moreover, having probably killed and definitely been killed, they clearly had no intention of stopping.

In April 1970, Chicago police raid and shut down a Weather Underground bomb factory and confiscated 59 sticks of dynamite, ammunition, and nitro glyerine.

In 1971, the FBI located another bomb factory in San Francisco and the group detonated two more bombs.

In 1972, they bombed the Pentagon.

In 1973, they detonated three more bombs.

In 1974, they detonated four bombs.

In 1975, they detonated four bombs.

In October of 1981, a group of Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army members held up a Brinks truck. When authorities stopped them, they opened fire, killing two police officers and one Brinks guard, as well as wounding several others.

Ayers and his common law wife both got off, not because they were not guilty, but because the FBI had messed up on procedures. Ayers was later quoted as crowing they were,

“Guilty as sin, free as a bird. America is a great country.”

In 2001, Ayers appeared in Chicago Magazine, proudly stomping on the American flag and saying he had no regrets about his long association with the violent domestic terrorist organization. He said,

“I acted appropriately in the context of those times.”

Appropriately? This man detonated bombs in public spaces in the name of peace; he claims to hate imperialism, yet has long supported Communism; he also claims to hate globalization, yet has been involved for decades in advancing the career of Barack “It takes a global village” Obama’s career.

Recognizing the two-faced hypocrisy of this arrogant Leftist, tweeters weighed in on ways that Ayers and Tsarnaev are like Totally Different.

  • The Weather Underground didn’t get their own operatives killed. Oh wait. Yes, they did.
  • Both were guilty as sin, but only one went to jail.
  • Ayers didn’t use pressure cookers.
  • Tsarnaev never wore an earring.
  • Ayers stole taxpayers’ money after he bombed U.S. citizens.
  • Tsarnaev stole taxpayers’ money before he bombed U.S. citizens.
  • Ayers is still drawing oxygen.
  • Tsarnaev never threw a party for Obama.
  • Ayers has Obama’s cell phone number.
  • Tsarnaev has an Obama phone.
  • Ayers got tenure and became a liberal media celebrity.
  • Tsarnaev never set off a bomb at the Pentagon to celebrate Ho Chi Minh’s birthday.
  • Ayers’ bombings weren’t Terrorism-Terrorism.
  • We don’t have a picture of Tsarnaev standing on an American Flag.

Summary: They both hate America. The reasons don’t matter.

This isn’t America any more

Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who died in the Boston Marathon bombing, was a Catholic who had received his First Communion just last year. As Martin lay dying, he was denied the comfort of a priest. This was not for lack of proximity. When the priests at St. Clement’s, just three blocks away, heard the explosions, they gathered sacramental oils and hurried to the scene.They were barred from the scene. Non-uniformed citizen were allowed to help tend the wounded. Even a three-foot-high blue M&M was there. But the guys with the backwards collars? Nada.

RAAACISM: The Duct Tape of Liberalism

FBI wanted poster - CAPTURED

There’s a bunch of RAAAAACISM tweets flying around because Dorner died and Little Boston Bomber Brother didn’t. I’m not going to dignify any of them by repeating them here. They’re @ http://twitchy.com/2013/04/20/some-believe-boston-bombing-suspect-captured-alive-because-hes-not-black-like-christopher-dorner/

I just like the response tweets:

#1 BEST TWEET

Racism – It’s like duct tape to the liberals because it can apply to anything.

FAVE EXCHANGE

Jillane Kent – The fixation with race is superfluous and completely unproductive. Dorner killed himself, therefore apprehension and interrogation was necessarily compromised. This latest miserable excuse for a human being engaged with the police officers, making apprehension and negotiation far easier.

Miss Clairee – Whoa, whoa, whooooaaa! Hold on there, sister! You gotta quit using those twenty dollar words so the tweeting morons can understand!

Jillane Kent – I’m an SAT tutor by trade. Being incomprehensible is part of the job 😉

OTHER GOOD STUFF

Some believe Boston bombing suspect captured alive because he’s not black like Christopher Dorner.

Yes and some believe in UFO’s, that the WTC was an inside job and Obama is a US citizen.

Hey, give a guy a break, and leave the UFO’s alone!

Foley Schucking Hit, did they miss the part where one of the two Boston Bomber perps was shot dead?

Did they miss the part where Dorner insisted he wouldn’t be taken alive?

Did they miss the part where Dorner fired on the cops while Little Boston Bomber Brother cowered in a boat?

Did they miss the part where Dorner SHOT HIMSELF?

If these racist morons have a problem with Dorner not being taken alive, maybe they should take it up with the guy that shot him.

So what you’re saying is that Dorner was a racist for killing himself.

They said Dorner only killed cops. Totally forgot about the one cop’s DAUGHTER.

And those two random people at that traffic light.

And her civilian boyfriend.

The stupid. It burns….

I’m starting to think “The Walking Dead” is a documentary about liberals.

I’m not so sure they all classify as liberals. I think “Dip$hits” works though.

I think the words ‘liberal’ and ‘dip$hit’ are entirely interchangeable.

The Malignant Narcissist in the White House

2013_04 Obama's pissy puss

2013_04 17 Obama shows anger

ALLAHPUNDIT SAYS,

Never mind Benghazi. Where was this supposedly righteous anger after Aurora? The victims in that case weren’t small children, but that can’t possibly explain O’s dramatically more subdued reaction after that shooting. They were innocent people too; many of them were young, if not kindergarteners. No angry Rose Garden press conferences freaking out about Senate inaction after Aurora, though. Any theories why? Anything, maybe, having to do with when that shooting happened vis-a-vis Newtown? Right: One of them came three months before a presidential election and the other came a month after. That’s the difference. As you watch him point the finger here at supposedly gutless senators who care more about retaining public office than Doing Something, remember that there’s hardly one among them who’s as attuned to political self-preservation as O. He kept his mouth shut nice and tight about guns when it was his own ass on the line last year in purple states; he ignored gun control almost completely when he had 60 Democratic votes in the Senate early in his first term; and as we know from the gay-marriage farce, he isn’t above lying outright to voters about his true positions in the name of getting elected. (Let’s not start on the many ways he’s followed Bush’s counterterrorism lead after selling himself to the left in ’08 as the anti-Bush on foreign policy.)

Given his record, there’s every reason to believe that what’s really bothering him is the fact that red-state Dems denied him an easy chance today to demagogue Republicans as the party of child murder or whatever, which he was hoping to use next year as a way to retake the House. Then, once he had a Democratic Congress again, he could pass some new horrible permutation of ObamaCare or immigration or the minimum wage or some other liberal wishlist item that has nothing to do with gun control. Just like in his first term! That’s what he’s mad about, that a political bludgeon was essentially taken out of his hands before he had a chance to use it to achieve unrelated goals.

And now he’s a lame duck, with few opportunities to pass something big and a real chance that he’ll end up with a fully Republican Congress in 2015. He might have no choice at this point but to try to tank the immigration bill too so that he’s got something to scream about next year. I wonder if Democrats will trip him up there too.

Also worth a look:

WSJ editorial about why keeping guns away from dangerous or unstable people was less important to Dems than defeating the NRA.

Tweets:

  • So it took 1,000 cops & 200 shots to bring 1 bomber down & UR telling me I don’t need more than 10 rounds?
  • Who in Boston is saying “Thank God I’m not allowed to own a gun” right now?
  • Obama, ask your mentor, Jeremiah Wright, if he thinks the chickens have come home to roost for Boston.
  • Maybe he meant Chechens.
  • Note when something’s already accomplished the president speaks of “I” (I directed resources), but when it’s yet-unaccomplished it’s “We”

Obama cries like a little girl

It’s their ideology that matters

2013_04 19 West on domestic Muslim terror

2013_04 19 Coexist bumper sticker on car bomber jacked

MSM tried to blame right wing white Americans for Boston

Tolerance

Tweets:

  •     5 min after bombing, MSM blames right-wing Americans. Now we know bombers are Muslims, it’s “We can’t speculate on motives.”
  •    News Media: Don’t you just hate it when you solve a crime, and then the cops arrest somebody and you have to make it back into a mystery?
  •     People saying “what a great guy Jahar was” are pissing me off.. I wonder how great a guy Martin Richards would’ve been?
  •     The punk placed a bomb next to a child. I don’t need to know why. Because why will not change the fact that he placed a bomb next to a child
  •     That poor dead cop. I don’t need to know that the punk who shot him had a strong relationship with his brother. Save it for Dr. Phil.
  •     The color of their skin is as irrelevant as the color of their socks. It’s their ideology that matters.
  •     Ironic that people who think it acceptable to accuse Catholic priests of being pedophiles are now warning us against stereotyping Muslims.
  •     Video Posted by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev: “go through martyrdom of Allah”. I say to the media: “It’s the Jihad, stupid.”
  •     One Tsarnaeyev Brother posted youtube videos glorifying Islamic terror attacks. But media holds out hope this was just term paper research.

2013_04 19 Forecasting media coverage of bomber

  • CNN portraying bomber as a “victim”?!
  • CNN wants 2 make sure we know that the youngest #BostonBombers was sweet kid & a good wrestler.
  • CNN – Bomber’s HS coach/neighbor Larry Aaronson calling him a “lovely lovely kid”
  • Bombing ppl is just a hobby.
  • Fort What? Politico Asserts Obama ‘No Longer Has an Unblemished Record’ on Stopping Domestic Terrorism.
  • Obama Warns “Not To Rush To Judgement” About “Motivations” And “Groups”
  • This is the same guy who said the cops behaved stupidly. So yeah. No rushing to judgment there.
  • Media: White male loner killing white kindergartners in CT = NEWS.
  • Media: Black doctor butchering black babies in PA = NOT NEWS.
  • Sure, it’s another attack by Muslims. But they didn’t do anything truly awful like think taxes are too high or own a rattlesnake flag.

THE TUESDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

I waited a little longer to post today because of the fluidity of the terror situation.

There have been conflicting reports that they have a suspect in custody,now word is ,even though they searched his apartment,that he’s a witness.

One thing is certain–this was no amateur job.The bombs were made with presure cookers filled with ball bearings and nails,intended to inflict the maximum amount of damage.I’m posting a few items germaine to the attacks,but I have more things a little less depressing.

THIS LITTLE BOY IS MARTIN RICHARD.HE WAS WAITING TO HUG HIS DAD AT THE FINISH LINE.HE NEVER GOT THE CHANCE.HIS MOM UNDERWENT BRAIN SURGERY AND IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION,AND HIS 6 YEAR OLD SISTER LOST A LEG.PLEASE JOIN ME IN OFFERING UP A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR THIS FAMILY.

2013_04 15 Terrorist attack at Boston Marathon

  • If you’re looking for FAMILY call 617-635-4500 – #Boston Cell service SHUT DOWN to prevent MORE explosions
  • Be careful about the urge to impulse-click online donation links! Scammers ARE already hard at work. Take the time to double check!
  • Thanks to generosity of volunteer blood donors there is currently enough blood on the shelves to meet demand.
  • CNN: “Possibly done by right-wing extremists” [IOW, “we’re hoping it was right-wingers and not one of ours.”]
  • If, after a terror attack on Americans, your 1st instinct is to attack other Americans, you have a SERIOUS problem.
  • Fellow partisans, there is a time and a place. Today ain’t it.
  • Scumbag (n.) – a person who tries to spin an unfolding human tragedy w/ many unknown facts into an advantage for his or her political views.
  • Dear bomber: far better men than you are saving lives you tried to take. We’ll honor and pray for your victims. You’ll die alone in a cell.
  • Notice all these First Responders, Firefighters, Police running TOWARD the bomb areas? Heroes.

2013_04 15 Kids' response to Boston

A reminder to Christians on the right on days like this: pray not just for Boston, but for the President & his team too. 1 Tim. 2:1-4

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

2013_04 15 MIT honors Marathon victims

Above: The Green Building at MIT on April 15, 2013, following the Boston Marathon bombing. The Cecil and Ida Green Building, also called the Green Building or Building 54, is an academic and research building at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. It was designed by noted architect I. M. Pei, who received his bachelor’s degree from MIT in 1940. Principal donor Cecil Howard Green received a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from MIT and was a co-founder of Texas Instruments.

When I googled for info about the Green Building, I saw this.

“We all know the students at MIT love a good hack, but what’s better than playing a game while doing it? Last night, a team took over the side of MIT’s Green Building and turned it into a giant, playable, multi-color Tetris game.”

Playing Tetris on a BUILDING!

LOL Too fun!!
