Esquire Magazine right wing blame


Some members of the liberal media in this country never miss an opportunity in the face of tragedy to blame so-called "right wingers" for whatever crisis happens. And as usual, at least 2 liberal media outlets have mentioned that the Boston Marathon explosions could possibly be related to the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts today. And of course anything Patriot related means "right wing" to the main stream media.

The 2 perpetrators of this kind of sick speculative journalism are none other than Wolf Blitzer host of The Situation Room, who said, “One intriguing notion, one intriguing thought here, and I’m curious, Mike, and I’ll ask Matt to weigh in as well, it is a state holiday, in addition to the Boston Marathon. It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today called Patriots Day, and who knows if that has anything at all to deal — to do with these, these twin explosions.”

Patriots Day is a holiday meant to commemorate the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the Revolutionary War.

And secondly, Esquire.com speculated in one of their articles pictured above, "Obviously, nobody knows anything yet, but I would caution folks jumping to conclusions about foreign terrorism to remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like."

These are interesting assumptions especially in the light of the New York Post reporting that a Saudi national is under arrest as a suspect and is being guarded in a local hospital. Is the liberal media trying to start something here? What do you think?
