Praying for a White American Terrorist
The reactions to the Boston Marathon Massacre were predictable. Alex Jones was going to cry false flag and the media was going to blather about right wing extremism.
Now a suspect, or another suspect, has reportedly been arrested. But before anything happened, the left was hoping he was white. Would his whiteness do anything to change the horror? Would it bring back the lives of the three people murdered, including a little boy?
No, but it would apportion blame in the way that the left thinks is ideologically correct. The loony David Sirota, who has become the go-to guy for bizarre quotes on race and violence, usually finding some backward way of blaming white people for everything, was open about his priorities.
“Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American,” Sirota wrote at Salon. Not, let’s hope he’s caught. Or let’s hope he doesn’t strike again. Let’s hope he’s a white man. That’s not just racism. It’s completely amoral racism.
Sirota looks at terrorism not through the lens of actual existing terrorist organizations, but race.
Boston bomber ‘is trapped by his phone’: FBI ‘use phone records to identify suspect after he is spotted on store cameras talking on his cell just seconds before blast’
- Investigators have reportedly identified a Boston marathon suspect using security video and cellphone records
- Much of key video footage came from Lord and Taylor department store – near the site of Monday’s second blast
- Video shows man in black with shredded pants running away in the aftermath of one of the blasts
- Shows the suspect walking towards the mail box, dropping a package and walking away
- New crime scene photographs from the first blast confirms that a pressure cooker was used in the device
- Lid of pressure cooker found on rooftop of building 35 yards away
- Other photographs submitted to the FBI reveal the scene before and after the second bomb detonated
- Devices were designed to act as ‘Claymore’ anti-personnel devices – which are meant to maim on the battlefield
- The pressure-cooker bombs were packed with shards of metal, nails and ball bearings
- Eight-year-old boy, 29-year-old woman and University of Boston grad student killed in the attack
- 183 people injured, at least 23 of them in critical condition and ‘a lot’ of amputations have been performed
Dramatic CCTV footage has emerged which reportedly shows a man planting the second of the Boston bombs in what investigators say is the biggest break in the case so far.
Video obtained by the FBI shows the suspect placing a bag near the Lord and Taylor department store while talking on a cellphone moments before the two blasts ripped though the city centre, killing three and injuring 183.
The unidentified man is also captured using his phone at the moment the first explosion detonated 100 yards away on Boylston Street on Monday and 12 seconds before the second blast close to where he is standing.
He was wearing a black jacket, a grey hooded sweatshirt, is about 6ft or 6ft 2ins tall and of a medium build. He had a white or off-color-white baseball cap on backwards.
The footage led the FBI to announce it had made ‘substantial progress’ in the investigation, but stressed no-one has been named or arrested.
Investigators are reluctant to make the video public in case it forces the suspect to go underground.
In another key development, pictures have been released of a suspicious figure fleeing the site of one of the blasts as everyone around him cowered in terror clutching their ears.
Dressed all in black, the man’s pants have been shredded and he hurriedly looks from left to right before making off in the opposite direction to the where members of the public are aiding the injured.
It is unclear whether he is the same man caught in the CCTV footage near the Lord and Taylor store.
According to CBS, investigators are now going through cell phone logs to determine who made calls from that location near the time of the explosions.
Other sources have said the FBI is working with a list of names of cell phone owners and attempting to match one of those to the unknown man on the surveillance.
Authorities have said they are seeking this man either as a witness or indeed as a possible suspect and do not know his name. At this point, federal officials stressed no arrests have been made.
And late on Wednesday evening, CNN and Fox News reported that they had seen images designated for ‘law enforcement eyes only’ that show two men they consider to be of ‘high interest’.
According to a reporter who has viewed the images, one of the men is wearing a backpack that matches one of the recovered bags believed to be have been used in the terror attack – while the other individual also is seen to have a bag.
Is this the man? While everyone seems to instinctively cower – the man dressed in black and highlighted – appears to run away at speed from the scene in the opposite direction to everyone else who was caught up in the blast
