TITLE: TWICK OR TWEET:
State Senator Greg Ball tweeted Friday 04/19/13 after suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured “So scum bag # 2 in custody,” Ball tweeted Friday after suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured. “Who wouldn’t use torture on this punk to save more lives?”
You would have thought he mooned the President by the reaction he has gotten in the media. From the Journal News editorial board to Piers Morgan, how dare our State Senator give an honest reaction! For all the caterwauling about politicians not being honest, when one is, they are pilloried. Remember this was right AFTER the capture.
All this high and mighty “we are better than this” mentality, in reality, we are not. Revenge is a perfectly human response. The fact is, Greg is not in a position to carry out his idea. The fact is, more people than you know feel the same way.
These high and mighty believe the civil rights of a person who waged war on America on its own soil is more important that the civil right of the people whom he harmed. The fact is, this ilk and his brother had no regard to the most basic civil right of those they killed and maimed, THE RIGHT TO LIFE!
This ilk deserves no more consideration or mercy that he gave his victims. The fact is that this ilk and his act will be treated as a criminal act and not an act of war, he will be given the protections of the same constitution he so hated. That’s the irony. In a just world, he would be given the same judicial treatment of Chetnia.
The reason why these high and mighty are so alarmed over Greg’s tweet is that they believe that the NRA, The Tea Party, The Right To Lifer’s, Talk Radio are more dangerous than fanatical Islamism.
Here is a CNN headline hours after the bombings, “here from CNN, the headline: “Boston Marathon Bombs Have Hallmarks Of ‘Lone Wolf’ Devices, Experts Say.”
From the article, “The devices used in the Boston Marathon attack Monday are typical of the ‘lone wolf:’ the solo terrorist who builds a bomb on his own by following a widely available formula. In this case, the formula seems very similar to one that Al-Qaeda has recommended to its supporters around the world as both crudely effective and difficult to trace. But –” but, but, wait for it, “it is also a recipe that has been adopted by “extreme right-wing individuals in the United States.”
Right-wing individuals utilize the same tactics, techniques as Al-Qaeda. is what they wanted us to believe.
24 Hours after the bombing was this from Salon.com “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American”
These high and mighty wanted so much to blame this on anything else but what it was, an act of terrorism. You see under this President, unlike the evil President Bush, terrorism was on the decline. Even the AP last month sent out a memo that they would no longer use the words Islamic Terrorism. It would be over 24 hours after the attack that the President would use the words “act of terror”.
In fact even before the sequester and to prove we are in a new day in regards to domestic terrorism, Obama administration has SLASHED the budget for domestic bombing prevention by 45 per cent.
These are what the high and mighty should be wailing against. But noooooo, it must direct it’s anger over the tweets of an honest expression of emotion from a Republican. As long as was continue to run a war, and yes, we are still at war, in a politically correct manor and let the President and media lie to us about who its is waging that war, we will continue to be in peril. The other real culprit on that fateful day in Boston was compliancy. This is what I say, what say you?
