Progressive Paranoia

Now that the Boston Marathon bombers have been killed and captured, we can calmly reflect back on just how well the Progressive mainstream media contributed to our understanding through their inciteful insightful analysis.

Michael Moore, again exhibiting his self loathing for his ethnic heritage, tweeted:

"If you are a bomb victim, all bloodied and in shock, better look as white as you can."

Dina Temple-Raston of NPR (National Progressive Radio) blames the RIGHT but gets it WRONG:

David Sirota of Slate attempts a preemptive strike against reinforcement of ethnic and religious stereotypes:

"Let's hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American."

(I think it was Thomas Sowell who defined stereotypes as "behavior patterns we do not like to think about.")

Finally, David Axelrod urges caution on jumping to conclusions about who committed the bombing in Boston, only to  mention "Tax Day" as a possible indication of motive.

Let's end this with a song:
