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.

Her “point” is that if you’re white in America, you get a pass. Therefor, these two bombers must be seen as non-white. And she’s explaining how that happened. She’s crazy.

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

The lefties and libs in the MSM never considered that white “literal Cuacasian” Muslims could be the terrorists, or that one or more could be naturalized citizens.

Most of us on the right were focusing on one thing — Islamist terrorists. We didn’t speculate about or particularly care if they were white, brown, black, yellow, red, or olive skinned. It was irrelevant. As was whether or not the were US citizens. We already know American citizens can be jihadists.

But whether or not they were white and American born citizens was all important to the libs, the Left, and the MSM.

Now that we know they are white “literal Caucasian” radical Islamist Muslims, one of them a naturalized US citizen, they are confused and don’t know what to think.

“We don’t really know,” said Harris-Perry, throwing her hands up about the discussion into the Tsarnaev’s motives.

They need someone in the WH or at the DNC to tell them what to think.

ironbill on April 21, 2013 at 6:49 PM

Not quite. A corporate co-worker of mine was visiting here and we were integrating some software when at about 4PM he indicated that he needed to go to church this evening. I asked what church and he said “To mosque”.

I said, “Well, we have a mosque right up the street from my church. It’s called the King Fahd Mosque. About 20 minutes on the freeway.”

His response: “Oh, I would never be welcome there — they consider my sect to be heretics.”

The nearest mosque for his sect was nearly an hour and a half away, so we quit work right away and off he went.

I talked to him a bit during the days that followed and got the basic idea that his community’s version of Islam viewed jihad as being a completely internal struggle, and that the practice of Islam must be pacifist — that religion must be completely free of coercion — that the person must seek Allah out himself without any force being applied.

It hit me as being far closer to Judaism than to Christianity — there was no real evangelical element to the practice of faith — in essence, a community whose desires were to be free to practice their faith and to allow others to practice theirs…

And, no, this guy was not a Baha’i…

CW on April 21, 2013 at 8:19 PM

They both make me think of my shirt.

“I have seen your village and I don’t want my kids anywhere near it.” MHP because she wants the “village to raise them” and because nopartisan is the village —-

The saying is, ‘I’d hit it/that.’ ‘I’d hit her’ implies a punch.

That’d work.

I love the speech where Obama says that the Constitution was written 20 centuries ago. That was in May 2009. No election in sight.

Gelsomina on April 21, 2013 at 8:43 PM

It’s utterly incomprehensible to me that ANYONE would be willing to give that gibbering moron even a second of air time. This is the same idiot who brought us.. ‘your kids don’t belong to you’. MSLSD indeed.

Murf76 on April 21, 2013 at 8:45 PM

yeah, cuz humans don’t make mistakes after they’re dead tired from endless campaigning right?

Its really funny watching you so purposefully defend Dead Leader. Its even more humorous how you think she should be above ridicule. I don’t think you understand what “non” means.

my liberal learnings are closer to the center like President Obama

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 6:40 PM

I can’t believe I am the first to mention this, but since WHEN is Obama ANYWHERE near the “center?”

Explains nonbrainisan in a nutshell. If the idiot thinks Obama is the center, imagine where it’s concept of “Left” is.

The British press coverage of our affairs is so much superior to the U.S. media.

Well, partisan got one thing right. We’re still enduring the endless campaign.

Something tells me she got a good night’s sleep and plenty of Starbucks before crapping out that little gem.

CurtZHP on April 21, 2013 at 9:05 PM

I’m not convinced Obama is truly Christian. He’s too intellectually evolved for me to believe that. This is confirmed by all of his college transcripts, which he released after announcing his candidacy in 2007.

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 7:29 PM

Edited for accuracy.

Del Dolemonte on April 21, 2013 at 9:07 PM

it’s kind of funny that in a comment to bash Obama’s intellect, you couldn’t even spell intercontinental correctly. kind of sad too.

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 7:42 PM

That is funny coming from some one who lacks basic writing concepts like capitalization. Squippy has this problem too. She said it was an unbreakable bad habit. I think she should sue her educators for negligence. People can’t take you seriously with such a flaw. It is like you and Squippy have tattoos on your face and can’t understand why you always fail the job interview. How can you expect to be taken seriously? Compound that with a retarding view on life and you are less than convincing in your arguments.

BL@KBIRD on April 21, 2013 at 9:09 PM

Bwwwahhaaaaa… Make sure you state your case in all 57 states, and don’t forget to go see Navy “corpse”men when you do..

But of course you didn’t vote for him.

Last year, after a 2 week vacation at the priciest beach in Hawai’i, O’bama told us that the State he was born in was in fact located “in Asia”.

“cuz humans don’t make mistakes after they’re dead tired from endless campaigning, right?”

Arabs are not a race either. Idiots.

mouell on April 21, 2013 at 7:04 PM

The proggies just make up races when the politics suits them. Moslems are a race, hispanic is a race, arab is a race, etc. They own the English language and they will manipulate it as The Cause requires.

As evidenced by the Democrat Party Man-God Bill Clinton, redefining 2 words that previously had only one accepted definition through many centuries…

1. “Is”

2. “Sex”

Del Dolemonte on April 21, 2013 at 9:21 PM

O’bama at Summit in Hawai’i sez: “Hawai’i is in Asia!”

Too intellectually evolved!

Del Dolemonte on April 21, 2013 at 9:24 PM

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 7:29 PM

Oh, wow. You mean that evolved intellect that didn’t know the difference between collision and liability auto insurance? The evolved intellect that somehow dreamed up a “profits and earnings ratio”?

ddrintn on April 21, 2013 at 9:30 PM

wait, but some Christians told me that God spoke to them directly…that doesn’t seem like much of a choice

you’re not implying they made that up are ya? *snickers*

nonpartisan on April 21, 2013 at 6:42 PM

Didn’t mohammed say that allah spoke to him directly? *snickers*

In fact, didn’t he say that the entire koran was dictated to him by allah? *guffaws*

You’re stupid, parmesan. What’s worse, is that you’re actually proud of being stupid.

And, you and your pResident are both lying sacks o’ crap.

Solaratov on April 21, 2013 at 9:30 PM

“… they are literally Caucasian”

Since the 60′s when “White folk” (AKA “crackers”) magically became Caucasians, it has been a mission for most to figure out exactly what a Caucasian is.

Well, most of us Huns, Saxons and Gauls aren’t Caucasians. We may look a lot alike those Caucasian, but as simple as the Japanese aren’t Chinese, we are not Caucasians.

Please don’t check Caucasian on any forms, use “other” instead .. or better yet, in form with Liz Warren, claim to be Native Americans.

J_Crater on April 21, 2013 at 9:31 PM

Nope. The guys who plowed into the WTC were Caucasians.

Because they are not invested into the idea that the rat-eared coward is utterly awesome.

The WaPo’s “worst week in Washington” column today gave the honor for Toomey/Manchin for pushing expanded background checks for firearms too fast. Clearly the guy with the worst week in DC was the rat-eared coward who saw his gun-grabbing plans go under in the Senate despite weeks of using those despicable Newtown parents to do his campaigning. The filthy bastard was all set to blame failure on those GOP radicals in the House. He doesn’t have that chance now.

Intellectually evolved, -for an Affirmative Action politician that is. You have to admit that’s a pretty low bar. Not a bar at all really.
