My god SWR!!! Your hypocrisy knows no bounds...Salon's headline is "We Hope It's a White Guy" and Blitzer's and Matthew's comments have been hashed over countless times...and you continue to ignore them. What a hypocrite. And talk about sick "wish fulfillment" ... WE HOPE IT'S A WHITE GUY!?!?!?!?!
It may be a white guy. It may be a right-winger. It may be any number of potential perps. But for you to ignore the ridiculous, unfounded claims of the left shows your true, hypocritical colors.

Anyone know what's going on the 405, they just closed it down 15 minutes ago going North towards Wilshire
I have nothing against Blitzer. I feel pretty neutral about most of CNN's people. Not great but not awful. Have you watched Chris Hayes ever?
4chan trying to solve the puzzle.
Imgur is used to share photos with social networks and online communities, and has the funniest pictures from all over the Internet.
CNN keeps talking about potential suspects seen in videos and pictures, but they aren't showing the videos or pictures?
Who was the guy that Piers Morgan just got done interviewing who just said what I said?
if so, that's the same guy who said that Family Guy predicted the bombing at the marathon. He's an absolute idiot.
I was kidding about Alex Jones. As you point out, he is a total nutcase. I have no idea who Piers Morgan just interviewed.
Jon Stewart is having a lot of fun with CNN's coverage from earlier today.
Do you have any understanding as to why some people "hope its a white guy"? I think what is being said is that we all prefer the idea of a domestic lone wolf to a new wave of international terrorism by an organized group of people. A lone wolf ends when one guy is caught instead of a prolonged conflict and need for security measures like we have seen with Al Qaeda.
This is what I was trying to convey on the first page of this thread.
I will say, while I prefer it was a lone wolf domestic threat, it is starting to look more like it may be something else. Multiple suspects and some tactics that indeed fit the profile of international terrorists.
Let's pray we are not entering a new era of soft target terrorist bombings by Al Qaeda.

For the reasons stated in the Salon article, I hope it is a white guy. Bigots do not blame a whole group if a bomber is a white guy. They treat him as a lone wolf. If it is a Muslim, bigots will use it to blame all Muslims (see stupid posts in some threads on this board). There is a double standard (aka: bigotry). If it is a Muslim, the bigots will want to deal with all Muslims in a way that is counterproductive.
*Sigh*. I actually said that ALL speculation was unhelpful at this point. And I agreed with you on the rush to think 'Tea Party' (btw, should we regard McVeigh, the Texas flying into building guy, the Norwegain killer as 'right-wing'? every side has nuts). And it is true to say that far-right groups have been acting up. Personally I would not label them 'Tea Party'. Just as I think those who make a fuss out of the fact that the Aurora guy was a registered Democrat are tasteless. My problem with you, LowPoint, is this. Your hated- yes, hatred- of anyone center-right, centrist, center-left or left-wing colors your other posts. If you had simply sad: 'I don't think how that CNN guy seems to have jumped to a Tea Party conclusion is at all fair', I would have agreed with you. As it is you show no equal compassion for those maligned when various members of the Right are itching to blame someone who is a Muslim, and you go out of your ways to forget the right-wing terrorists who were right-wing while focusing all of your examples on people with even a tenuous link to Democrats.
It looks like you are playing politics over this. It might be that you are a little tone deaf to how you come across.
“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.
Other posers have dealt with why you're off-base here but I notice that you have focused on all of the Blitzer stuff (what did he say? I don't want him) and Matthew stuff (ditto) and have not called out anyone on the right for what I have pointed out. Cast out first the beam out of thine own eye before throwing stuff around.
Is the sun a little hot? Is water a little wet? Is a tortoise a little slow?
#1 - Is this the real thing?
#2 - Is that Blossom standing behind him?
Actually when you read the article it states the author fears it will set back the agenda of liberalism and promoting the false notion that the extremists in Islam really do like us now...and that it would be easier to deal with someone from the "privileged" class like a white guy. And more importantly if they can pin it on some white guy (hopefully a conservative) they can paint with even a broader brush than the left already does.
Self loathing lefties...

Low, if you are going to downvote a perfectly fine post at least put in a plea of mitigation for why you think me wrong.
Oh yeah...and the Ricin guy is a Democratic activist with a Dem bumper sticker on his car on his Facebook page.
But, of course, his party affiliation is not as important today as it was yesterday before they caught him.
Blossom has graduated to Amy Farrah-Fowler.
Your mishandling of Scripture is another example of your pious indignation of actual truth. You desire I take out whatever is in my eye while refusing to do the same for yourself.
That's not what the article says. And you know it. No one wants to 'pin' it on anyone. It was pointing out that when someone right-wing does something we put them down as a mad person (correctly, although you seem worried that the cause of right-wing politics will be hurt, which it won't) whereas when it is someone who is Islamic it tends to lead to a more robust intervention (involving the killing of more people) to 'drain the swamp' of their ideology. We wouldn't carpet bomb Kansas for that purpose either.
Thatcher was right on one thing: whoever did this is no better than a common criminal. I couldn't give two shits about whatever ideology this person claims to have other than to catch this guy and any co-conspirators.
