Playing stoopid: “We have no idea who did this or why,” Mr. Bloomberg said. (NYT)
Remember: the Obama administration sees veterans as potential ‘right wing’ terrorists.
Here’s the story from JW:
On the other hand, as for Comedy Central, it is clear their act of cowardice did not protect anybody from those who are determined to attack. Will they respond with more censorship, or decide now is the time for the gloves to come off?
“3 cops, street vendor stop Times Square car bomb from detonating; Gas, clock found inside car,” by Allison Gendar, Rocco Parascandola, Kevin Deutsch, and Samuel Goldsmith for theÂ New York Daily News,
Prank of the day:
If Rush Limbaugh and anyone else who dares disagree with us Socialist Progressives Â would just tone down all the hateful rhetoric, this kind of thing would never happen.
Hussein Obama, 1st Muslim president of the US of A…….
Even Janet Napolitano is saying that the car bomb defused in Times Square last night was a “potential terrorist attack.” One wonders what “three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components” could beÂ other than a terrorist attack, but I leave that to the learned analysts.
In any case, we know that when Napolitano thinks “terrorist” she doesn’t think “Islamic jihadist” but rather “right-wing extremist,” so even if this was an attempted Islamic jihad attack, it might take DHS awhile to find that out, and the mainstream media awhile to report it. But one clue comes from Jihad Watch reader Michael M.: “the vehicle was parked on 45th Street between 7th and 8th avenues in New York City. This is the location of VIACOM, Inc. offices. VIACOM owns Comedy Central. Comedy Central as we all know is the home of ‘South Park’. This information is omitted from every article I’ve come across so far.”
But the detractors are working overtime, already:
“Stop rushing to judgment. We don’t yet know who did this. It might have been a Muslim, it might not have been. WE DO NOT KNOW YET. Don’t start the lynching.“

UPDATE: The Telegraph has noticed: “The location is also adjacent to the Viacom building, fuelling speculation that it might be linked to the company’s controversial South Park cartoon which recently depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.”
Note the now-universal mainstream media reference to “Prophet Muhammad,” as if we’re all Muslims now.
