Boston Marathon bomber(s) chase: open thread
Discuss new developments here. For instance, I’m told that the Tweet from the suspect’s hacked Twitter account making the rounds is a hoax [potentially]. Also, it seems the brothers were living here as legal immigrants but were not citizens (according to FOX). [update: new report says naturalized citizens]
Meanwhile, as the day goes on, I’ll be haranguing David Sirota on Twitter. I invite you to join me.
Because among other things, Sirota is trying to point out how “the right” is reacting to the Chechen angle in a bigoted racist rage. As is evident in Tweets from individuals you’ve never heard of that he helpfully points to.
– Ignoring or forgiving his own almost orgasmic desires that the terrorists be white, private school lacrosse players from rich families who, though they may not have actually raped that stripper, probably considered it — and so need to be punished as emblems of white privilege.
He’s also pushing the canard that the brave and professional response from first responders in Boston vindicates the progressive thirst for higher confiscatory taxes — as if red states are the ones routinely threatening to cut funding to first responders every time its citizens say no to tax increases, or as if red states don’t themselves have adequate first responders.
What they don’t have is Cowboy Poetry Festivals; nor do they pour our money into studies and grants seeking to determine why lesbians have an outsized (social) propensity toward alcoholism.
And tell me: what the fuck does belonging to a public sector union have to do with your ability to behave professionally and do your job?
Answer: it doesn’t. Sirota is a pseudo-intellectual posing as a political analyst. He’s a poser getting rich off of pretending to champion the people.
Meanwhile, the dude probably spends $80 on a cut and coloring, and another $100 to wax himself monthly.
He’s everything that’s wrong with the leftist mindset rolled up into one carefully polished turd.
