The First Price for Stoopid Goes to NYC Mayor Bloomberg:
NewsBusters on BLOOMBERG: “Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”
Bloomberg ought to be ashamed of himself. He should be making statements about protecting Americans of all creeds, and calling the Muslim community in America to account for its tolerance of jihadists. There has never been a backlash against innocent Muslims in the U.S. It is a fiction that we only hear about when a Muslim plots mass murder of Americans. And then we hear about it endlessly, as if Muslims were the victims rather than the perpetrators. JW
Faisal Shahzad, “right wing extremist”: Â the system failed. He got in, he committed acts of terror and he nearly got away…..ABC
Times Square Jihadi Nabbed at JFK Airport/Atlas Shrugs: he must be a “tea-bagger”
Bloomberg worries about “backlash” against Muslim New Yorkers.
The mayor said there are “a few bad apples” among any groups. He also cited New York’s long history of accepting cultures from the around the world.

“I’m sorry the facts don’t fit my agenda”.
CONTESSA BREWER:Â I mean the thing is that- and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.
And so there was part of me was really hoping this would not be the case that here would be somebody who is not the defined. I mean he’s accused, he’s arrested you know I don’t want to convict him before it’s time to do so. He’s the guy authorities say is involved. But that being said, I mean, we know even in recent history you have the Hutaree militia from Michigan who have plans to, let’s face it, create terror. That’s what they were planning to do and they were doing so from far different backgrounds than what this guy is coming from. So, the threat is not just coming from people who decide that America is the place to be and you know come here and want to become citizens. And obviously this guy did.
BREWER: What’s interesting is you know we’re seeing within the boundaries of the United States it’s the people that they’re arresting seem to be you know- these loners, in some ways. I mean, the underwear bomber had obviously been sent. There was a network behind him. But, they’re guys who are, I don’t know, isolated some ways from their families. It will be interesting when we hear what is the background of Faisal Shahzad as we are, you know, of course our NBC crews are on that and looking onto more background there.Â We’ll find out more. Were there failed family ties? Did he have a strong community network here in the United States? Did he feel isolated?

But Mayor Bloomberg of New York — and many others — were disappointed. Jonah Goldberg publishes a letter from a reader: “Hoping for the Right Kind of Terrorist,” by Jonah Goldberg atÂ The Corner at NRO, H/T Jihad Watch
Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone. “If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.
A mentally deranged person or someone who did not like the healthcare bill?
Why is he so damned anxious to blame this on white ‘conservative America? Would he be happier if 9/11 were done by someone ticked off by ‘don’t ask don’t tell? (of course not….liberal cause)
His comments were so outrageous and so irresponsible he should apologize to New Yorkers and resign. Of course the little man’s Napoleonic ego is way to large to ever consider that.
We will just continue to suffer the consequences of the political correctness of morons like Bloomberg and the leadership of the NYPD…
