Not All Muslims leave note on boat in Boston backyard: “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims”

Font Size:

The Boston Marathon bombing happened on April 15. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was apprehended in the early hours of April 19. And yet we’re only just finding out about this now.

CBS News:

Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left a note claiming responsibility for the April 13 [sic] attack on the Boston Marathon, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller…

The note — scrawled with a marker on the interior wall of the cabin — said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, and called the Boston victims “collateral damage” in the same way Muslims have been in the American-led wars. “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims,” Tsarnaev wrote.

Yes, but what was his motive? We may never know.

I wonder how our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the mainstream media feel about their initial assumption that the bombing was “right-wing terror,” now that it’s been revealed that the Obama administration has abused its power in order to intimidate Tea Partiers? How do they feel about sharing the same prejudices?

Just kidding, I know how they feel about it. They feel nothing. They didn’t care about any of Obama’s malfeasance until the Associated Press was targeted. Until this administration’s corruption affected them.

I really want to put a bad word here, but my mom reads this. I’ll just call them jerks.

Update: No, don’t expect the #FreeJahar kids to give it up. This just proves he’s extra-innocent.

Update: Oh, and note Norah O’Donnell’s attempt at a save: He was self-radicalized. As if it makes a difference to the survivors.

Update: I can’t even sum up this story. Just make sure you have something to vomit into.
