  1. Steve Brown says:

    Two foreigners? Possibly from Chechnya? There's NO way that these are Muslim terrorist, bent on enforcing their beliefs and attacking others simply because they're non-Muslim.

    Clearly these were two WHITE Mormon missionaries gone bad.

  2. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Interesting reading many of the posts on obamamedia (Huff Po, NPR, NBC, CNN and the NY Times) how many of the obamatons are using this to further attack gun owners. As many are condemning, this "will further push gun nuts to fight control."

    Well, tell that to the "gun nut" cops putting their own lives on the line – including the murdered cop at MIT (our prayers with his family) to save their sorry arses.

    But no worries, the left wing media will now move from their prayers that the terrorists would be "old right wing white men" to blaming Pamela Geller for condemning jihadists.

    OH WAIT: NBC, CNN, NPR and Huff Po are already blaming the NRA, as are several senators, for the "delay" in catching the jihadists. We all knew that was coming. Once the 2nd jihadist is put down, I presume Huff Po and its minions will post en masse their "sorrow" for the "murder of the brothers by gun happy cops," followed by demands "for justice for their murder," and repeated calls – which have already started – for "jailing of the gun nuts that let this happen."

    Welcome to the united states of obama.

  3. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    This is where the left wingers and kapos come here to blame "instigation by Pamela Geller" for the Boston Marathon massacre and the murder of the MIT Police Officer.

  4. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    NPR, CNN, NBC and several Senators have already come out and blamed the NRA and the "old right wing gun nuts" for "delays" in making arrests

  5. Charlie Hall says:

    Stop making assumptions — we will know the facts soon enough.

  6. Howard Rose says:

    Here is proof that the murderers in Boston are extremists Muslims. Now do you believe me? It is in Russian, but I am having someone translate it. It is his Facebook with extremist Muslim beliefs. Check out it out for yourself. My Synagogue and I have been threatened and damage was done to my garage door. THE F.B.I. has translated this into English.
