Like Nicolas Kristoff:
Kristoff eventually withdrew his comment because he got bombarded with negative comments.
Michael Moore pulled himself away from the an all you can eat restaurant to tweet that the bombing was some sort of tax protest :
Luke Russert showed us why he will never be the reporter his dad was with this comment:
On CNN Peter Bergen told host Jake Tapper that the attack was either the work of al Qaeda or “right-wing extremists
MSNBC Mr. Tingles and Mass. Rep Keating:
During MSNBC’s coverage of the Boston Marathon explosion, “Hardball” host Chris Matthews and Democratic Massachusetts Rep. William Keating speculated on what may have motivated the bombing.
Keating pointed out that it could be related to Tax Day.
“Now, we have an international event, the marathon, the oldest marathon,” Keating said. “And we also have Tax Day, April 15, so we don’t know if that’s the kind of symbol a domestic terrorist might use as well. So there’s a lot that’s not known, but we’re beginning to get a lot of information that will be shared with the public for their own safety. But a word of caution to everyone to just to really be careful.”
Matthews remarked on the Tax Day suggestion, saying that it sometimes causes emotions “in the wrong parts of the brain.”
“Well you’re right, congressman,” Matthews replied. “So many iconic days — it’s Patriots Day, it’s the Marathon Day, it’s the Kennedy Library always up there. And also as you point out — I just forgot because I filed already — that it’s filing day for the federal income tax, which does cause some emotions around the country, sometimes in the wrong parts of the brain.”
Wolf Blitzer suggested that hit might be some sort of super Patriot celebrating Patriot’s day (H/T Hot Air):
One intriguing notion, one intriguing thought here, and I’m curious, Mike, and I’ll ask Matt to weigh in as well,” Blitzer said. “It is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today called Patriots Day, and who knows if that has anything at all to deal — to do with these, these twin explosions.”
Patriots Day is a holiday meant to commemorate the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the Revolutionary War. Blitzer continued to inquire to about that possibility, asking if there might have been an event to mark the anniversary.
“As part of Boston’s — Massachusetts, I should say — Patriots Day, did you notice earlier in the day, Matt, any special Patriots Day events going on, anything pointing to a special day in Massachusetts?”
Noah David Simon told me to check out Esquire also…sure enough they have their own Douche-bag who said it it was a Timothy Mc Veigh act alike.
Isn’t it wonderful the way our liberal friends rush to give a rationale/group behind the bombing even before the police do? It will really hurt their feelings if there is not a right wing crazy behind this act of terror.
