The Bombs of Boston: Unbridled Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia or Even More Workplace Violence?

The spin machines are geared up and ready to go. The lefties are praying for the second coming of Timothy McVeigh. Oh for one more white male Army Veteran who never uttered a religious thought or attended a religious function but will somehow default to a "Christian Identity" label. Bloomberg will be vindicated for calling the Times Square failed bomber a Tea Party member. And ABC News will be vindicated for calling the Aurora shooter a Tea Party activist. A million falsehoods will be made true. Media infallibility will be reestablished.

After the Oklahoma City bombing, gun control was pushed hard. That doesn't make any sense but it is what happened. And you can bet that domestic spying will be expanded (not that there is much privacy left to sift through) and that it will be declared near and far that the official motive for the bombings was pure, unadulterated racism. Everyone who opposes the White House on matters large or small will find themselves linked to the bomber faster than Uncle Fanboy can link Bing Crosby to Kevin Bacon. Guilt by association minus the association.

And if the Timothy McVeigh demographic goes undiscovered? Brace yourself for an onslaught of workplace violence stories in the news.
