Chris Matthews on Boston Bombers: ‘What difference does it make why they did it if they did it?’

What difference does it make. Hmm, that sounds so familiar. We suppose that’s the standard reaction from the left in the face of terror. Be assured he would not be asking such a question if the terrorists were “white right-wing extremists” as he and the left had so fervently hoped.

CHRIS MATTHEWS, MSNBC: I know we’re filled in this country with some strange thinking people, truthers, birthers that have off-the-wall theories. I don’t know how anybody could look at this evidence presented so far and have some other theory of the case besides the indictment, itself.

CLINT VAN ZANDT, FBI PROFILER: No, it’s really coming together. I mean, there’s — as terrible as this case is and was, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of heavy lifting. We’ve got the two primary individuals. It’s obvious that they had hands on the devices. The pieces we don’t have, Chris, are where was their inspiration? Where did they get the guidance? Who taught them how to build the bombs? Where did they build them? These are a lot of questions.

MATTHEWS: Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here. But I don’t know whether, when you look at all this evidence —

Amazing how quickly the left wants to just dismiss all this and climb back in their bubble where all the ills in the world are figments of their imagination.

Namely, anyone on the right.

VAN ZANDT: No, no, no.

MATTHEWS: Go ahead.

VAN ZANDT: No, it’s important to the case because we want to make sure there aren’t other that should be prosecuted. ‘Is there anybody else in the immediate Boscon area who gave aid and comfort, assistance, money, guidance, teaching?’ If not, how far does this go?

Now that Muslim terrorists are the known killers, Matthews and his ilk want to do anything to change the subject. You can bet your last dollar that wouldn’t be the case if a “right-winger” was responsible. No sir, we’d never hear the end of it.

Just a week ago Matthews was whistling a much different tune.

Now he asks what difference does it make? Unreal. The segment with Van Zandt begins around the 5:40 mark.

    Listen, Chrissy, life under Sharia would probably mean you’d get throw off a tall building or crushed under a wall or something else because you’re gay. Wait…what? You’re not? Oh, well, close enough for the muzzies.

    He’s just trying to do his job!

    Can’t you see, Chrissy is completely honest and straightforward and treats the right and left EQUALLY?!?!?

    Leave Chrissy Alone! [Sob]
