I’ve had it with politicians trying to portray “Tea Partiers” as some sort of “radical” or “terrorist.”
The latest was Mayor Bloomberg, who was quoted as saying that the failed Times Square bomber “might be someone with a political agenda…. against the health care bill.”
We now know that the suspect is a Pakistani national headed to Dubai – indeed, on a plane about to take off – when he was taken into custody.
He is apparently a naturalized citizen, but this changes nothing.
More than a dozen people with American citizenship or residency, like Shahzad, have been accused in the past two years of supporting or carrying out terrorism attempts on U.S. soil, cases that illustrate the threat of violent extremism from within the U.S.
Among them are Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, a U.S.-born Army psychiatrist of Palestinian descent, charged with fatally shooting 13 people last year at Fort Hood, Texas; Najibullah Zazi, a Denver-area airport shuttle driver who pleaded guilty in February in a plot to bomb New York subways; and a Pennsylvania woman who authorities say became radicalized online as “Jihad Jane” and plotted to kill a Swedish artist whose work offended Muslims.
Where are the apologies and resignations of those politicians that have tried to spin these ACTS OF ISLAMIC TERRORISM as some sort of perverted and sick scheme of people who are in fact AMERICAN PATRIOTS that hold as their core beliefs the rule of law AND THE CONSTITUTION?
I have had it with politicians trying to spin their blatant and “in your face” support of theft, fraud and extortion committed by the “kingpins” of American Finance into whatever they can manage so they can continue to skim off their piece of that scamming and fraud, whether it by through tax receipts or campaign bribes, er, “donations.”
Some, in their desperate attempt to keep the grift and fraud machine going, have even stooped so far as to call those of us who have consistently and loudly called for the rule of law and prosecution to be used to bring these people to account “terrorists.”
You have it wrong Mayor, and your joining in this intentional and outrageous misdirection campaign marks you as a douchebag of the highest order.
The financial terrorists are the banksters on Wall Street and their cronies in Washington DC.
The violent terrorists are radical Muslims and I, along with others, are not going to stop hammering you and every other opportunistic politician with these facts until you have all lost your jobs.
Both groups must be either ejected from this nation or locked up in a Supermax prison, along with everyone who supports them.
