Democrats Quickly Politicized the Boston Marathon Bombings to attack Conservatives
What’s the difference between conservatives and liberals? Well, for one, they respond to horrific tragedies differently. Conservatives are sickened and saddened. While liberals salivate with a potential opportunity to blame conservatives for these horrific events. Which they are quick to do. Even before the dead are identified and laid to rest. As we can see in the Boston marathon bombings.
We don’t know anything yet. But the media has been reporting on what we don’t know 24 hours a day since the bombings. And on the day of the attack there have been those in the media already making the case that the bomber is possibly a ‘radical’ conservative. Because it happened on April 15. Tax Day. During the Patriots’ Day holiday in Boston. Not far from the anniversary of the fiery end of the Waco siege. Even someone in the media wrote that they were hoping that it was the actions of an angry white man. So it wouldn’t hurt the liberal political agenda. More gun control. And less restrictions on immigration. So if the bomber(s) entered the country illegally (i.e., they’re not angry white men) that could hurt their attempts at creating new Democrat voters by giving illegal immigrants amnesty.
Former Democrat Congressman Barney Frank was quick to politicize the bombings, too. He said the response of the first-responders proves the value of big government. For no tax cuts or limited government would have made the response any better. Another Democrat Congress person blamed the bombings on the sequester. The cut in federal spending allowed these bombers to detonate these two bombs. So on the one hand you have one Congress person saying how well the government handled the situation because we don’t have limited government or tax cuts while you have another saying the government was so weakened by the sequester that they were unable to stop these bombers. Positions on opposite ends of the spectrum. But with one thing in common. They both attack conservatives.
The Left Gleefully reports a Conservative Connection in any Horrible Act of Violence even when there is None
They blamed the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, on radical gun-toting conservatives. Anxious to prove that the shooter was a card carrying member of some conservative organization. And were quite disappointed to find the shooter was just someone with mental health problems who the state should have institutionalized. Who lived in his mother’s basement playing violent video games and earning high-scores with high kill numbers. Some have even suggested that he was living in the fantasy world of the videogame when he started shooting. Scoring points with each kill. Reloading even before his magazines were empty (like during lulls in a videogame so you had a full magazine for the next shooting encounter). And killing himself before the cops could kill him, resetting his game points to zero. There are a lot of theories. But with his suicide we can’t know for sure his motive.
Nothing would have prevented this shooting other than locking him up in an institution while he was learning about past mass shootings. Planning his crime. And playing hours of video games in his basement. Adam Lanza was sick. He was mentally unsound. He had trouble interacting with people. And separating the real world from the fantasy world of his video gaming. But one thing he wasn’t was a radical conservative. But it didn’t stop the liberal Democrats from blaming the Sandy Hook massacre on a conservative gun culture. And using it to try and pass long-desired gun control legislation. Instead of addressing mental health problems. The cause of the Sandy Hook massacre. In fact, during the last few decades the Left has made it more difficult to commit someone who is a danger to society. And they exploded the use of drugs to treat a laundry list of childhood developmental problems. Such as drugging a generation of kids for having attention deficit disorder. Trusting in medication to make them safe and well behaved. Leaving dangerous people free to hurt people. Dangerous people like Adam Lanza.
Mental health problems are a main theme in many mass killings. Before Newtown there was the 2012 Aurora theater shooting. Where the shooter was a mentally sick individual. James Holmes. Who the state should have institutionalized. As soon as his name was released a person in the media reported he was a member of the Tea Party. Because he found a James Holmes in Aurora that was a member of the Tea Party. Which they gleefully reported so they could show this horrible act of violence was by some gun-toting conservative. Only it wasn’t THAT James Holmes. The Aurora shooter had no connection to conservative politics whatsoever.
When Emotions are Running High the Left can Pass Legislation they’ve never been able to Pass Before
In Tucson in 2011 Jared Loughner went on a shooting spree. Killing six. And shooting Representative Gabrielle Giffords in the head. The media immediately started blaming conservative Sarah Palin for inciting this rampage. Because she had a bulls-eye on her website showing certain Congressional districts in the cross hairs. Including Giffords’. But was Jared Loughner incited to his crime by Palin? No. For he wouldn’t have gone on her website. He was a registered Independent. He hated George W. Bush. He even believed that 9/11 was a government plot. And was a paranoid schizophrenic who abused drugs and alcohol.
Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 13 people and wounded 30 at Fort Hood in 2009. He was a major in the Army who had recently converted to Islam. Was in communication with Yemen-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki who was a known security threat. And reportedly shouted what Islamist terrorists shout before they start killing. Allahu Akbar! Which translates to “God is great.” But instead of calling this an act of terrorism President Obama called it workplace violence. Because he was trying to wind down the War on Terror. So he could use that money to pay for Obamacare. And having an act of terrorism on a U.S Army post didn’t help with that agenda.
Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people and wounded 17 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 2007. He also suffered from mental disorders going back to middle school. Who had problems similar to Adam Lanza. Something his college knew nothing about because of federal privacy laws. Laws that protected the individual by putting the public at risk. As an adult Cho chose to discontinue his therapy. And his behavior became similar to how James Holmes would later act when he was in college. Which is when the state probably should have committed him. After the shooting rampage the Left blamed easy access to guns as the cause of the shooting. Not their failed mental health policies.
One can see a general pattern. The Left likes having these atrocities happen. At least based on how they politicize these atrocities. And why do they politicize these atrocities? Because they can’t beat their political opponents in the arena of ideas. So they turn to character assaults. To destroy their political opponents. By trying to blame these atrocities on conservatives. And their cruel and unfeeling policies. That kill school children. And when emotions are running high they can pass legislation they’ve never been able to pass before. Like gun control. And they don’t run higher than when children die.
