Hey Reddit, Enough Boston Bombing Vigilantism

It's only the illusion that what we do online is not as significant as what we do offline that allows this to go on.

.....Guys, this isn't dissecting the quality of an animation on the PS3: this is a human being whose role in an act of terrorism is being debated in a public forum because of people's observations of the "tension" in his grip on his bag?

This is not how civil society works. There is a reason that police have procedures around investigations and evidence. Due process is important. It exists to systematize justice, and in doing so prevent the sort of excesses common when people take justice into their own hands. And if anything, we don't have *enough* due process in this country.

All of these statements are obvious. And it is possible to see what some set of Reddit users are doing as insubstantial or silly. At best, they help the investigation. At worst, it's a distraction. But we need to take both the rhetoric and actions of this group seriously. It doesn't matter that it's happening in a forum, and not around a burning cross.

As new details about the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings came to light, confusion on Twitter led some users to mistake Chechnya for the Czech Republic.

The names of the distinct regions trended on the social network after two suspects in the bombings, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, were described by family and law enforcement as "brothers from a Russian region near Chechnya."

In response, Twitter users made crude "infographics" and shamed misinformed tweets, in an apparent effort to correct the Chechnya-Czech Republic error.

However, the error was couched in a broader misperception, as some media used the suspects' purported origins to make suggestions about their alleged motivations. On Friday, Fox News reported on the "ties between Islamic extremist groups and Chechnya," postulating that the suspects could be motivated by "Islamic radicalism."

In interviews Friday, Ruslan Tsarni, uncle of the suspects, said that the Tsarnaev brothers are not Chechen, had never been in Chechnya and insisted that the bombings had nothing to do with Chechnya or Islam, the predominant religion in the region.

In a statement posted Friday to his Instagram feed, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov suggested the bombing suspects were products of an American upbringing.

"It is necessary to seek the roots of evil in America," Kadyrov wrote, according to a translation from Foreign Policy.

Laying Down the Sword: Why We Can’t Ignore the Bible’s Violent Verses
The most painful passages come in the books of Joshua and Judges, which Jenkins describes as an “orgy of militarism, enslavement, and race war.” The Israelites, emerging from the desert after their escape from Egypt, attack Canaanite cities, whose people are described by the biblical narrator as very wicked. God commands the Israelites to exterminate the inhabitants—men, women, children, and animals alike, until nothing is left alive. Likewise in the Book of Samuel, King Saul eventually loses God’s favor not for his bloodthirstiness in war but for his restraint—he fails to annihilate his enemies. The prophet Samuel denounces him for sparing some of the Amalekites, takes up a sword, and personally hacks the captive King Agag to pieces. To make matters worse, says Jenkins, God sometimes deliberately “hardens the hearts” of other peoples, using them to chastise the sinful Hebrews. Then He raises up Judges, righteous Israelites, to smite and destroy them in turn. It’s almost as if He wanted the highest possible body count.
Jenkins offers a useful thought experiment, asking readers to view these stories through the eyes of the Canaanites themselves. To them, the Israelites would seem as terrifying as the Janjaweed militia of Darfur in our own day, or as the Lord’s Resistance Army of Uganda, whose leader, Joseph Kony, has justified the mass torture and killing of men, women, and children in God’s name.

So what's the Boy Messiah gonna say about this? That's the $64,000 deficit-busting question.

How does he frame this without letting the word 'Islam' enter into a national discussion on killing by Muslims? Bombs and the 2nd Amendment?

How does he keep the religious egg from sticking to his lying face?

Maybe he'll just hold a Press Conference and recite the Azan to Oprah Winfrey while America vomits.

We did NOT start the 9/11 fires.

SADDAM DID-in KUWAIT.

And Christianity, nor any religion (or lack thereof), does not FORCE itself on anyone. People themSELVES, are the manipulators of such.

Thatcher Funeral Snub

President Barack Obama’s failure to send any top officials of his administration to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral Wednesday sparked some heated criticism.

Politico catalogued negative comments from a variety of sources.

A New York Post editorial was unimpressed with the U.S. delegation, headed by former secretaries of state George Schultz and James Baker.

“As the world bids farewell to Lady Margaret Thatcher today, it’s hard not to notice that America’s official presence at the state funeral for England’s most significant prime minister since Winston Churchill will be underwhelming,” the Post editorial read.

“Instead of sending a high-ranking member of his own administration to lead the official delegation, President Obama has dispatched two former Republican secretaries of state, George Shultz and Jim Baker. Nothing against these men, but we can forgive the British for regarding Obama’s choice as yet another snub.”

Editor's Note: Should ObamaCare Be Repealed? Vote in Urgent National Poll

Breitbart’s Debra Heine noted that Obama offered Thatcher high praise when she died last week.

“But actions (and inactions) speak louder than words,” she wrote.“Obama did send an official delegation to Caracas to attend last month’s funeral for the deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.”

Thatcher ally and Member of Parliament Liam Fox had similar feelings.

“I think it would be both surprising and disappointing if after President Obama’s fulsome tribute to Lady Thatcher, the American administration did not send a senior serving member to represent them,” he told the London Daily Mail.
