The left will be wetting themselves over this one today. You know, the same folks who in the immediate aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing rushed to tie the terrorists to conservatives. Mind you, this is the BBC coming up with this nonsense.
One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to publications espousing white supremacy and government conspiracy theories.
He also had reading material on mass killings.
Until now the Tsarnaev brothers were widely perceived as just self-styled radical jihadists.
Panorama has spent months speaking exclusively with friends of the bombers to try to understand the roots of their radicalisation.
The programme discovered that Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed articles which argued that both 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were government conspiracies.
Another in his possession was about “the rape of our gun rights”.
Reading material he had about white supremacy commented that “Hitler had a point”.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev also had literature which explored what motivated mass killings and noted how the perpetrators murdered and maimed calmly.
There was also material about US drones killing civilians, and about the plight of those still imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.
Because as everyone knows the plight of those detained at Club Gitmo is a huge cause on the right. Inexplicably, the Daily Mail runs a story on this with a photo of Klansmen. In that case, shouldn’t we tie Tsarnaev to old Southern Democrats? In the meantime, something is missing from this story: The names of these alleged “right-wing” publications.
