THE WIT AND WISDOM OF A CROOKSANDLIARS.COM COMMENTER

Ken Berwitz

Here is a comment about the Boston investigation and manhunt, from an all-too-typical "commenter" at crooksandliars.com. 

Please read it, then remember how often this site, and others like it (dailykos.com and democraticunderground.com spring to mind) attack conservatives as being paranoid nuts or worse:

I am sorry I have ZERO confidence in these reports, this is a Yell, Point and Shoot, regardless of the circumstances does not impress me.

Yes he may or may not have a bomb or he may not, this is the corporate OWNED Gestapo making the claims, I say that can NOT afford to have any witnesses and anyone will do at this time. Yes, a Officer was killed, this DOES NOT justify MURDER by corporate OWNED cop.

Bring this guy in ALIVE, ALIVE, ALIVE, oh yes, make sure to capitalize that they or he is Russian, under your breath very fast mention they were RAISED in the USA, this way you get more bang for the sound byte, one Hate Russia, two, Hate Muslims, three kill all who you deem think differently from you, and yes put out their when they were children, they were SECRETLY trained operatives sent here to destroy America.

There is a lot more to this then they are saying and the right wing is squirming, the corporations are into this up to their hip with the WAR Mongering Bought and Paid for right wing.

Question how are the ratings doing with this yada yada yada noise of confusion and stupidity. Now we will switch to a goof that has a understanding and a explanation of what is going on, this beefs up the absurdity and stupidity of this noise coverage, and justifies are lack of knowledge to make us look smart. By the way most of these ROFL experts are so good they have NO JOB except the NOISE media duh!

Point made?  I thought so, and rest my case.


CONDOLENCES

Ken Berwitz

Condolences are in order.  And I extend them to chris matthews and most of the crew at MSNBC, david sirota and his slate.com pals, those nice folks at crooksandliars.com, and the other left wingers who hoped and prayed that the Boston terrorists were White Christian conservatives...may be even grand slam home run of White supremacists.  They could barely contain themselves in rooting for any or all of those descriptions to obtain.

But....

....it turns out that the Boston terrorists are not White Christians, they are Chechnyan Muslim radicals.  And (double gasp!!) it also turns out that the surviving terrorist, dzhokhar tsarnaev, is not a right winger at all.  In fact he is a big Barack Obama fan, as indicated by the following tweets he posted on election day and the day after, which come to us courtesy of Matthew Sheffield's blog at newsbusters.org:

I have no doubt, of course, that matthews, sirota , and their likeminded (make that smallminded) haters will come down like tons of bricks on Islamic fundamentalist fanatacism, just as they were gearing up to do on Caucasian Christian Conservatives.....

Yeah, right.  And Barney Frank is coming out of retirement to head the Family Research Council.


SUSPECT DOWN AND INJURED

Ken Berwitz

As of about 8:22 PM, it appears that suspect #2, the younger brother, is injured, and trapped in a boat in someone's back yard.

I hope they take him alive, so he can be interrogated....but that he injured badly, and painfully.

Regular readers of this blog are probably aware that I almost never favor the death penalty.  But, so help me, I would pull the switch on this subhuman terrorist maggot and sleep like a baby that night.

I'll update as news breaks.

==================================================

UPDATE:  the subhuman maggot is in custody.  Injured, but in custody.  I hope they take their time getting him to the hospital.


ONE DEAD, ONE AT LARGE

Ken Berwitz

As is usually the case with "as it's happening" reports, a lot of the information we are hearing about the two Boston terrorist suspects  is likely to be wrong.  But here is what we know, and what I surmise, as of this moment.

After robbing a 7-11, carjacking a Mercedes SUV, critically wounding a cop, killing an MIT security person, they led police on a wild chase which ended in Watertown, MA, not far from Boston.

As of right now, the story is that they are brothers - biological and, obviously, attitudinal, who were born in Chechnya and have lived in the USA for something like 10 years. - which means they were about 9 and 10 years old when they came here. 

If they had "military experience", they didn't get it in the USA, which probably means they spent part of the intervening 10 years elsewhere - either in Chechnya or somewhere else.   And I wouldn't bet that the "military" experience being discussed is with an actual country's army either; I'd speculate that it was in a terrorist training camp of some kind.

One is dead, either from gunfire, the IED he had strapped to his body or both.  There was also a report that his brother ran over him while escaping the specific place he was killed.  That loving brother, presumably, is hiding somewhere in Watertown MA right now.  Not surprisingly, Watertown is locked down tight as a drum.

I wouldn't bet on authorities taking him alive, even if they would like to. 

Again, please keep in mind that every word of what you just said is subject to change. 

I'll try to provide updates as they come.

UPDATE:  Now it is being reported that the dead brother is 26, not 20 as originally reported.  And that the father worked in Chechnya, not the USA.  As I said, these "facts" are almost certain to be revised, and/or reversed, as we go.

FURTHER UPDATE:  MSNBC is now reporting they have "located" the live (so far) brother.  And a third suspect has also been taken into custody.

FURTHER UPDATE:  Things are moving rapidly.  Fox is reporting that a house has been surrounded - presumably because it is feld the suspect is in or near it.

FURTHER UPDATE:  8:57 AM  Fox is reporting there was gunfire at the house, then police were moving without any sense of urgency and no ambulance has showed up.  This is causing them to speculate the situation "has been resolved".  

FURTHER UPDATE:  9:22 AM:  MSNBC speculates that authorities know where the suspect is, and may be "negotiating" with him.  As usual, when a story moves this quickly there is a ton of conflicting information.

FURTHER UPDATE:  10:48 AM:  Police news conference supposed to take place now.  But it sounded like at least one shot was fired at a location many police are at.  No idea for sure of what is happening.

FURTHER UPDATE:  12:54 PM:  We still do not know for sure if the suspect has been caught or if he is still alive.  But we are being told that a "controlled explosion" will take place at one of the locations police have concentrated on (one report says it is his home, which police fear is booby-trapped, another says it is his sister's home).  We are also finding out that the two brothers had been "radicalized" in the past couple of years (what a shock)...and that other accomplices may exist and are still at large.

Point of order:  If this were the Bush administration, is there any doubt the left would be going after him with everything they have, screaming about his incompetence to allow something like this to happen?  Think about how they tried to pin 9/11 on him.

FURTHER UPDATE:  1:40 PM:  Terrorism expert Steve Emerson is on Fox right now, informing us that the brothers have posted videos on line celebrating al qaeda and calling for death and destruction to non-Muslims.  Emerson is making the point that this indicates the attacks were not related to any Chechnya cause, but were flat-out terrorism against the United States.

Also, the President of Chechnya has come out with a claim that the attack was due to the brothers' "American upbringing" - presumably meaning that things would be different if only they would have grown up in peaceful, non-violent, tolerant Chechnya.  I can't tell whether he is more an idiot, a liar or an anal cavity.  Maybe he's all three.

REAL RACISM (CONT.)

Ken Berwitz

You won't need me to explain why the human garbage pile named karon wright has earned a place in the "real racism" series. 

Here, via Mike Opelka's article at theblaze.com is this "educator" commenting, on her facebook page, about the tragic explosion in West, Texas: which has taken at least 15 lives, and maybe dozens more:

Texas School Counselor Karon Wright Relieved of Duties Following Racist Post

Not surprisingly, Andrew Jackson Middle School, which employed wright as a counselor, immediately removed her from the staff.  And it has issued a statement which says, in part, that her comment is "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones.".

What amazes me is that someone this hate-filled, not to mention ignorant, not to mention gramatically illiterate, managed to get her job in the first place.  We can only wonder how many young minds she damaged prior to this eminently well-earned dismissal.

Real racism.  It comes in all forms, from all sources.  No group is immune to it, or from it.  Not even a so-called "educator", who finds the death of innocent White people, and her speculation that all Whites will soon be wiped from the earth, to be an object of humor.


BENGHAZI: THE WHISTLEBLOWERS COME FORWARD

Ken Berwitz

With the Boston attack and the West, Texas explosion, it would be easy to overlook new developments concerning the Benghazi massacre - especially since most of our wonderful "neutral" media have done their (un)level best to keep you as ignorant of it as possible.

But, thanks to the estimable Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, we still have a pipeline to information about this murderous scandal.

Ms. Attkisson's latest piece tells us that:

...multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya.

The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department.

Can it be that - against the best efforts of the Obama administration and its Accomplice Media - some people in the know might actually come forward and tell us what really happened on that awful night? 

If we ever do find out the extent of this scandal and coverup, it will be largely due to the efforts of Sharyl Attkissson, along with a precious few others willing to buck the Obama machine and most of their peers in what passes for today's journalistic profession, by seeking out the truth. 

And all shame on the Accomplice Media who have made it clear that they intend to keep the public as ignorant about Benghazi as possible.  They are not journalists; they are propagandists who shame the journalistic profession.
