Journos’ Knee-Jerk Accusing of ‘Right-Wing Extremists’

Written by Mark Mayberry on April 20, 2013

Finally the most abhorrent reporting has come from CNN. CNN has reported, in a recent article, that an “undisclosed counterterrorism investigator” has told them, “that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States whom, he said, tend to revel in building homemade bombs.” This is a bold claim from a person that CNN can’t name or identify. Could it be that CNN is just throwing spaghetti against the wall? This just doesn’t pass the smell test at all. In short, it is complete and total bull. In order for it to be a signature these groups would have to have been documented over and over again using these pressure cooker devices.

Unfortunately for CNN, they didn’t list one instance. Why you ask; because it has never happened. The example of Erich Rudolph used in the article is sophomoric at best. Rudolph used pipe bombs and a timer of course. To say that they are similar because they both use timers is like saying a dump truck gets the same gas mileage as a Civic because they both use tires.

However, there are a ton of examples of Islamic based militants using these types of explosives. In 2010 and 2011 there were several instances in which Islamic terrorist used this very device to kill and destroy targets. In 2010, Pakistani militants used these devices to attack and kill six Christian aid workers. Later that year, an Islamic militant was apprehended trying to leave a pressure cooking device in Time Square. In 2011 another Islamic militant was apprehended with several pressure cooking bombs that he intended to use on Fort Hood. This is all combined with the fact that al Qaeda released an article in their magazine Inspire that details how to build a bomb out of a pressure cooker.

With the latest developments, we see the men responsible for Monday’s bombing obviously are not part of this evil, angry society of white Tea Partiers. So my question is: at what point do these “experts” have to pay the piper for their biased and dishonest opinions? Is it not as equally racist to immediately think of a southern white male when explosions ring out? Erich Rudolph is literally the only right-wing bomber the left can come up with and yet they are more likely to assume it’s the evil white man than the Islamic jihadi who has been doing it since Lava Lamps were cool, the first time.
