Hoping for the Right Kind of Terrorist

I’m heading to the airport in a minute. But I thought this email was worth posting:

Jonah,

I live 5 blocks from the bomb site in NYC.  I am also a 40 something white man. When the NYC police and Mayor Bloomberg came out right away (based upon the video tape) and said it was a 40 year old white man, I thought they must have pretty good evidence.

Then I saw the video.  About the ONLY thing we could tell from the video was that the suspect was not a black man.  He could have been white, Arabic or Hispanic.  Yet the NYPD and Bloomberg chose white.

Then I saw this quote from Bloomberg (WCBSTV) :

 Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone. “If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything,” he said.

A mentally deranged person or someone who did not like the healthcare bill?    

Why is he so damned anxious to blame this on white ‘conservative America?  Would he be happier if 9/11 were done by someone ticked off by ‘don’t ask don’t tell?   (of course not….liberal cause)

His comments were so outrageous and so irresponsible he should apologize to New Yorkers and resign.  Of course the little man’s Napoleonic ego is way to large to ever consider that.

We will just continue to suffer the consequences of the political correctness of morons like Bloomberg and the leadership of the NYPD,

As a New Yorker, I am just glad for the rank and file NY police and fireman who don’t seem to listen to their leadership.

While I agree with this reader, I have a slightly different point to make. I’ll try to chime in later.
