MSNBC host explains our fixation with the bombers’ roots

posted at 6:01 pm on April 21, 2013 by Jazz Shaw

I know you were all worried. The entire week has gone by and you’ve doubtless been haunted by nagging fears over exactly why you were so upset with the Brothers Tsarnaev and their recent actions in Boston and Watertown. I’m sure, like many, you were concerned that you might be unfairly judging them for their origins or Muslim connections. Fear not! You’re just fine. As MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry helpfully explains, these factors have nothing to do with recent events.

Making the point that the Tsarnaev brothers’ Muslim faith at the moment bears little relevance to the investigation into the brothers’ decision to attack the Boston Marathon last week, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry observed that Tsarnaev’s faith is about as relevant to the investigation right now as are Ben Affleck movies about violent events in Boston. Her panel guests agreed, and said that Americans have to “otherize” violent actors in order to absolve themselves from responsibility for or connection to their violence.

“We don’t really know,” said Harris-Perry, throwing her hands up about the discussion into the Tsarnaev’s motives. “The younger brother, he’s getting all kinds of tweets from his friends. I think part of the answer is that it’s still an open question.”…

“Given that they’re Chechen, given that they are literally Caucasian, our very sense of connection to them is this framed up notion of, like, Islam making them into something that is non-[unintelligible],” Harris-Perry continued.

“The point is that it’s important to say, ‘that is not us,” Dyson agreed. “We want to demonize the other. We have to distance it from the dominant culture.”

Look… I don’t know what sent the Tsarnaev brothers over the edge, and everyone on both sides claiming that they already do know is putting the horse several miles before the cart. But over the edge they went and attempts to brush that away are flatly dishonest. And that applies to both sides, including Harris-Perry’s. It’s still entirely possible that the older brother was getting most of his information off the internet and the younger one tagged along. (That still doesn’t make him less eligible for a new office six feet underground, as I noted before.) But to pretend that much deeper, more sinister ties aren’t still a possibility, if not a probability, is willful blindness. Did the older brother spend those six months visiting with Dad or at a training camp? We don’t know yet, but further, detailed investigation may yield some answers.

But the newest MSNBC star can’t seem to relinquish the red flag on this one. Sure, it would have been great for her running meme if the bombers had turned out to be Tea Party supporters from Alabama (and some white supremacist cred wouldn’t hurt either) but that ship has already sailed. They’re either locally inspired crackpots or foreign trained fanatics. (The sleeper cell theory is the worst case scenario, and one that’s being explored now, but we’ll have to wait to see what is turned up.) But leave it to the MSNBC weekend crew to make sure we can turn this into a reason to promote progressive politics.

Lest you think I’m taking it out of context, here’s the video, courtesy of Mediaite.

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 7:02 PM

our very sense of connection to them is this framed up notion of, like, Islam making them into something that is non-[unintelligible],” Harris-Perry continued.

Yeah, they could have just as easily been Amish. There is no evidence whatsoever that Muslims are more likely to blow up eight year old children than the Amish.

That incident in Russia where Chechen Muslims, literal “Caucasians”, took over a school and murdered over 180 children? No reason to think Caucasian Amish aren’t capable of doing the same thing.

Islamist fundamentalist extremism has nothing to do with it. Some people are only blaming their religion because many Muslims are are not Caucasian. Obviously these people are racists.

The fact that about 95% of the time in the past few decades such terrorist atrocities have been committed by non-Caucasian Muslims is just a statistical coincidence. There is no reason to think Caucasian Amish might not be doing the same thing in the next few decades. We just don’t know.

However, if they had been Christian fundamentalist evangelical right-wing Tea Party types — as most of us liberals thought likely they were — then obviously that would have had everything to do with their barbaric and savage terrorist attacks.

I get the feeling the left thought Caucasian meant blonde and blue eyed and now that they figured out it doesn’t they think they score some point on a technicality.

Gosnell murdered so many of our collective children, and this woman has been literally silent.

ndanielson on April 21, 2013 at 7:08 PM

That is because her employer, NBC, has a total embargo on the Gosnell story. Now, they are the only major TV network to have never mentioned it, even in passing.

Dr. Goebbels would approve.

Del Dolemonte on April 21, 2013 at 7:14 PM

so you watch every minute of her program? how else would you know she’s been silent? are you a closet MHP fan?

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 7:11 PM

She has been silent.. So much so that it evolved into a Washington Times column on the issue:

William Eaton on April 21, 2013 at 7:14 PM

is he threatening the President of the United States?

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 6:55 PM

Yeah, I suppose it could be described as such. What’s your point? That it is illegal or something to claim to have information that will embarrass the president, or expose him as a less than honest and straightforward elected official?

Barry does that to himself all the time and he shouldn’t have a monopoly on all the fun.

Pure hype.

I’ve lost count how many times GB has said “You’ve got to hear this.. if you hear nothing else.. hear this… this is the most incredible blah blah blah”

I love GB. But he sensationalizes too much.

As for MSNBC. You can’t fix stupid.

Ampersand on April 21, 2013 at 7:15 PM

given that they are literally Caucasian

I know the left thinks this is a brilliant point but I don’t get why. I would say they are “technically” Caucasian but if we are going to judge by physical characteristics no one would be shocked that they are Muslim. They look the part for what that’s worth. I get the feeling the left thought Caucasian meant blonde and blue eyed and now that they figured out it doesn’t they think they score some point on a technicality.

If you saw these guys coming out of any mosque they would not stand out at all. Take from that what you will. Her point is like sayin Putin is Asian. Well yes, Russia in on the continent of Asia, but what’s your point?

Ampersand on April 21, 2013 at 7:12 PM

That whole ‘literally Caucasian’ is an utterly feeble attempt at covering their jump-to-conclusion “God, I hope it’s a white guy” nonsense from early on. It’s all the have – without it, as incredibly meaningless and stupid as it is – they literally have nothing but to say, “yeah, we’re openly biased, ragingly stupid, and unapologetically evil from a political perspective, but – that’s all we got”.

Midas on April 21, 2013 at 7:15 PM

Another fallacious argument. You’re consistent if anything….

say tell us about those non-lethal skeet guns again…..

CW on April 21, 2013 at 7:13 PM

I’m (still) waiting for its explanation on how flare guns and water pistols are designed solely for killing, and have no other uses.

Del Dolemonte on April 21, 2013 at 7:16 PM

what the dolt doesn’t get is that if he truly were nonpartisan he wouldn’t have to tell us.

Say dolt aka nonpartisan ….why did you leave the thread when were talking about Great Britain and gun control? Hmmm weird when the facts start a flyin you go hiding.

CW on April 21, 2013 at 7:12 PM

LOL- I believe one of its first quotes was how bad the picture of Obama was that Allah used in the story. From that day on, I knew no “non-partisan” or intelligent commentary was forthcoming.

60 minutes is interviewing a friend of the older bomber. The older bomber said America was a colonial power, who wants to colonize the Middle East and Africa.

Sounds a lot like Obama’s attitude towards America’s history.

Because if she had opened her mouth about it, that alone would be headlines in liberal-land, sweetie. Pay attention. But feel free to point me to anywhere she might have talked about the baby killer, because my Google search has come up with nothing. Her sidekick, Touré, who is an expert on black doctors, literally, has been strangely silent, too.

Yep, and not to mention that that area has been in dispute between Russia, Persia and the Ottoman Empire historically, so Chechens are a hodgepodge of origins.

melle1228 on April 21, 2013 at 7:23 PM

Hey nonpartisan, why haven’t you answered yet? You said anyone who claims they talk to God or believes in spirits is an insane and stupid nutjob, so why aren’t you and your MHP saying it about Obama?

Oh, that’s right. You’re a partisan hypocrite.
