At a Loss for Words Now

Posted on | April 19, 2013 | 27 Comments

Busy day Thursday, for obvious reasons — the press conference, the official suspect photos — and a couple late developments I’ve got to catch up with before I can go to bed. Dan Riehl may have a hot scoop here that I’m not willing to follow now, but I’ll certainly keep watching.

Twice, I tried to compose posts here Thursday, but interruptions kept happening, and then I saw something that really got to me.

That’s evil. Just pure,  cold evil.

UPDATE: Just about the time I planned to go to bed, a shooting near MIT turned into a police standoff near Watertown, Mass., and now it’s being reported that the suspects have been identified and were the subjects of all this police action. It’s now past 4 a.m., and I’m halfway through a pot of coffee, 20 hours into the day.

“Suspect Number Two” is reportedly still at large.

He will eventually burn in hell.

UPDATE: Suspects are reportedly brothers from war-torn Russian province of Chechnya. Well, one of the brothers is from Chenya, the other was Suspect Number One is dead, and Suspect Number Two is a fugitive.

    Premeditated murder. One of the most heinous crimes.

    Something to think about: MIT -> Aaron Schwartz -> Anonymous? Marathon just a target of opportunity? Pure cold evil sums it up.

    Sunil is A LEFTIE bomber! What an *INconvenient* truth!!! (Note the Che t-shirt
    in some photos). In time, we’ll see if there is a Saudi/alQaeda link.
    TBD. BUT:

    NOW is a golden opportunity for the Right/Conservatives to
    HAMMER America’s Left with this act of terror on the United States.
    Make Bill Ayers’ chickens come home to roost.

    And now Bloomberg News is refering to the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks as mere assaults on those cities in this article about Boston –
    The left appears to preping the ground to Mirandise the Boston “assaulters” once they are caught and “brought to justice”

    Dead, alive, who knows.

    Tough day to be you Stacy, nobody’s gonna wait 48 minutes, much less 48 hours before going public.

    From Wikipedia before it’s been scrubbed….”Islam is the predominant religion in Chechnya. Chechens are overwhelmingly adherents to Sunni Islam,[39]
    the country having converted to Islam between the 16th and the 19th
    centuries. Due to historical importance, many Chechens are Sufis, of
    either the Qadiri or Naqshbandi orders.

    Of course you’ll never hear this. It’s 2 white guys who probably were RIGHT WINGERS! At least they’re consistent. Is there a list of all the tragedies that have been maliciously blamed on right wingers only to turn out not us?

    The afternoon this happened the TLOT crowd on Twitter focused on one thing; Don’t presume the terrorist is a muslim. Their thoughts weren’t with the dead and injured, they were with their muslim pals and concern about muslim backlash.

    There’s only one possible course of action now. We must open our borders and embrace immigrants from the Third World, especially from vibrant regions with active Islamic insurgencies. 62,000 Iraqis have settled in the US since the war. The town of El Cajon,
    California, is now called “Little
    That’s what our masters would call a “good start.”

    Isn’t claiming that “He will eventually burn in hell” just a bit judgemental ?

    They should formally change the name of the country to “War Torn Chechnya” . . . of course, many countries have been torn by war and not ended up producing the sort of cowardly animals who kill innocents to make their “political” points, like the Beslan school massacre, the theater massacre, and now the Boston Marathon (and hundreds of other bombings in between).

    Naturally, the Democrats and Media are devastated to learn the perps are adherents of their favorite “religion of peace.”

    Ultimately, it ends either with all muslims dead, or everyone else dead.

    It’s probably a good thing you left Maryland, Stacy– the Maryland GOP is now dissing bloggers:
