In the wake of the Boston Bombings, the conversation has turned to the perks of jihad. The networks and local newspapers are tripping over themselves to declare the terrorists self-radicalized. I walked into the grocery store yesterday and there were probably a half dozen or so newspapers on display. I did not pick up any of them but I did scan the front page headlines. Almost every newspaper had a story pronouncing the Tsarnaevs victims of the Internet.
The dreaded Internet provided ideology, bomb-making expertise and everything else the self-starting terrorist might need. Really? I did not pick up the papers so I can not definitively say that these assertions were promoted in a fair and authoritative manner. But I suspect it was more mainstream media bs.
A backlash against the welfare state is underway. There are at least three levels of outrage:
1. Red-blooded Americans who game the system.
2. Illegal immigrants who game the system.
3. Terrorist immigrants who game the system.
The story is unfold faster than I can type. I hope to return to this soon.
