This evidently passes for rational thought on the Left:
After patently obvious and overwhelmingly documentable evidence that a terrorist attack (successful or botched) was committed by a radical Muslim, the Democrat-media complex squeeze their eyes shut, puts their fingers in their eyes and stubbornly refuses to connect the obvious dots between the terrorist and their radical Muslim background and/or connections. At the same time they demand that others not make this connection, and if you do, then you, sir, are a racist, xenophobic, Islamophobic knuckle-dragger who is only capable of seeing situations in black and white.
We this happen at least twice last year, with the Ft. Hood shooter and with the Christmas Day underwear bomber.
Yet, before enough facts are in about a terrorist attack, the Democrat-media complex immediately suspects an angry white gun- and God-clinging American anti-government right-winger motivated by angry white gun- and God-clinging American anti-government right-wing values and egged on by angry white gun- and God-clinging American anti-government right-wing talk radio.
This, of course, happened within the past year with the Holocaust Museum shooter (who turned out to be a left-wing anti-American extremist) and with the Austin IRS building plane crasher (who also turned out to be a left-wing anti-American extremist).
As soon as the newscasters reported over the weekend that authorities were initially looking for a "balding white man in his 30’s," the left-wing media immediately went like clockwork into this mode. The same sites that chastise the right for "jumping to conclusions" and warn everyone to wait until all the facts come in every time a person with clear radical Muslim ties commits an attack instantly connected the dots from "balding white man in his 30’s" to THAT ^$*&#@ ANTI-OBAMA TEA-BAGGER!
This, by the way, includes the Huffington Post, which that very weekend President Hope&Change suggested to the 80,000+ attendees of University of Michigan's graduation to read instead of listening to Rush Limbaugh. (Is this a topsy-turvy freaking world or what???)
And now, even as this "white guy" turned out to be a Pakistani Muslim, Democrat strategist Bob Beckel and NYC’s liberal RINO Mayor Mike Bloomberg have floated that idea that some right-winger who hates Obama and the federal government could have plotted it.
You see, liberals aren’t against stereotyping, profiling, or jumping to conclusions based on bigotry or prejudices, as they constantly accuse the right of doing. They do it all the time. It’s their M.O. They’re doing it right now to the Tea Party movement. They’re doing it right now to anyone and everyone who opposes ObamaCare and the federal government’s unconstitutional authoritarian overreach. The NY Times and Newsweek do complete stories on it: "Who is the Tea Party movement???" Just a bunch of white Christian 45+ males. Conclusion: You are a racist, and nothing you stand for has any merit. Period. It is the complete antithesis of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream: The Left thrives on judging people by their skin color, gender, etc. From that they determine your content of character.
But make no mistake: Liberalism with its rigid political correctness rots the brain. You literally either have to remove your brain from your skull, or just turn off the power switch and not use it.
UPDATE 2:20 PM: More examples of left instantly and without substantiation stereotyping the Times Square Bomber:
Matthew at the Right Handed Pitcher blog has compiled some statements from the left-wing Crooks and Liars blog blaming Glenn-Beck-watching "tea-baggers" for the Times Square bomb plot. Keep it classy, folks.
Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer reports that MSNBC reporter Contessa Brewer had hoped the bomber was a right-wing militia type, and laments the fact that the primary suspect is in fact a Muslim.
Roger Simon at Pajamas Media notes that on Sunday Geraldo makes a Timothy McVeigh comparison.
