These marathons are dangerous. Time to outlaw them.

Right-wing domestic terrorists are probably behind the bombings. The gun debate is heating up and today is tax day. The bombings also happened in Boston, a liberal Democratic city right-wingers often mock. One bomb exploded outside the JFK Library -- a former President lionized within the Democratic Party. And we just days away from April 19 -- a strange right-wing holiday. Also the explosions were not large. Foreign operatives use semtex in bombing missions.

Could have been avoided had they simply hung a 'Bomb Free Zone' sign.

Typical lib response - shoot, ready, aim!
Pass a trillion-dollar healthcare bill before you read it, push for gun laws that won't prevent criminals or lunatics from committing gun violence, call the death of Trayvon Martin a hate crime before the facts are in. Meanwhile, give Obama and Hillary a pass on the still unaddressed Benghazi murders and coverup.

Wouldn't right-wing domestic terrorists have targeted a .gov entity?
And I appreciate your expertise on explosives and destructive devices.[/sarcasm off]

I said "probably." But you cannot deny there are gun nut extremists upset over possible universal background checks. These are very irrational people capable of committing acts of terrorism.

Let's see...the last "gun nuts" were all Democrats who shot up a Congresswoman's open meeting, a movie theater, and a school.

"The allegation that James Holmes was registered Democrat was based on a Breitbart blogger Joel B. Pollack, who found voter registration records for a DIFFERENT James Holmes who was about the same age. Alex Jones’ Infowars and other right-wing websites then dutifully repeated the lie without verifying it. It was later determined that the Colorado Theater Shooter James Holmes was NOT registered to vote.

one thing though they were "gun nuts"

"Records show that Loughner was registered as an Independent and voted in 2006 and 2008, but not in 2010"

"In the aftermath of the shooting, the Anti-Defamation League reviewed messages by Loughner, and concluded that there was a "disjointed theme that runs through Loughner's writings", which was a "distrust for and dislike of the government." It "manifested itself in various ways" – for instance, in the belief that the government used the control of language and grammar to brainwash people, the notion that the government was creating "infinite currency" without the backing of gold and silver, or the assertion that NASA was faking spaceflights."

I thought that was the other way around. Brian Ross of ABC News said he was a Tea Party member, based on the same false premise, that the TP Holmes was much older.

I think your original source may be wrong...

A bit early to put the blame on any one group, isn't it?

Or, are you looking for a quick scapegoat to satisfy your liberal agenda?

Probably the same way I've seen a bunch of right wingers trying to blame it on Muslims or North Koreans. Speculation is only human nature. And extremism exists on both sides of the proverbial fence.

Not on this thread. It's all about Joe et. al. blame the right wing here with absolutely no facts, other than pure hatred of anything that isn't left.

try the link from my source

"ABC News’ first statement about the error attempted to deflect blame:

An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. Several other local residents with similar names were also contacted via social media by members of the public who mistook them for the suspect.
See, the other kids were doing it, too. ABC News seemed to realize this attempt at minimization, and lack of apology, was the wrong course. It issued an apology:

An earlier ABC News broadcast report suggested that a Jim Holmes of a Colorado Tea Party organization might be the suspect, but that report was incorrect. ABC News and Brian Ross apologize for the mistake, and for disseminating that information before it was properly vetted.
Over at Breitbart, there are only “updates,” no corrections. Here’s the current headline on the post:

EXCLUSIVE: CONTRA ABC NEWS, DARK KNIGHT AURORA, CO SHOOTING SUSPECT JAMES HOLMES COULD BE REGISTERED DEMOCRAT – UPDATE: NOT REGISTERED?
The post itself maintains the original lead, which suggests that ABC News’ Ross was wrong and the shooter could be a registered Democrat. You have to scroll all the way to the bottom, to the final update posted two hours after the post first went up, to learn none of it is true.

Even then the website doesn’t admit error:

Newly-released information on the suspect’s birthdate (which, as indicated in our initial report, was a slight mismatch), combined with new details Breitbart News has obtained about the suspect’s likely addresses, together suggest that the suspect may, in fact, not have been registered to vote.

so even breitbart stated that he was not registered to vote.
so it is a myth that the recent mas shooters are all Democrats.

Yes, you said "probably" with no evidence to leap to that conclusion other than to insert yet another "right wing" negative comment into a post. Did you ask yourself why "gun nut extremists" would use BOMBS to blow up innocent bystanders and children? There are irrational people and terrorists from all walks of life and you know it, or you should.

It's okay when it's true, not trumped up. Nothing to do with who said it.
