Mark Steyn is the greatest living political essayist in the world.
At least someone has the moral clarity and testicular fortitude to clearly articulate the painful truths learned from the recent Boston terrorist attacks.
Read "The Co-Exist Bombers".
"The politicization of mass murder found its perfect expression in one of
those near-parodic pieces to which the more tortured self-loathing
dweebs of the fin de civilisation West are prone. As the
headline in Salon put it, “Let’s Hope the Boston Marathon Bomber Is a
White American.” David Sirota is himself a white American, but he finds
it less discomforting to his Princess Fluffy Bunny worldview to see his
compatriots as knuckle-dragging nutjobs rather than confront all the
apparent real-world contradictions of the diversity quilt."
Ponder the following statement of regular Americans in Boston, simply 'co-existing':
"Neighbours said that Mr and Mrs Russell had been "very supportive"
of their daughter's decision to take up Islam, which saw her begin wearing a
veil covering her hair, in line with Muslim practice.
They said Ms Russell appeared not to return to university after her conversion
and the birth of her daughter, who is thought to be called Zahara."
The FBI had already interviewed the two brothers.
"This is an issue they've had in the past."
"They interviewed Carlos
Bledsoe in Little Rock, Ark., before he shot up an Army recruiting
station in 2009. They were also looking into Major Hasan Nadal before
the Fort Hood shootings."
"However, the FBI has maintained
in those incidents that they took all the steps they were asked to and
were allowed to under the law."
And we are supposed to be surprised that there has been another attack on American soil?
As Steyn points out:
"The Tsarnaev brothers had spent most of their lives in the United
States, and lived the diversity dream. They seem to have had a droll wit
when it comes to symbolism: Last year, the younger brother took his
oath of citizenship and became an American on September 11."
their final hours of freedom, they added a cruel bit of mockery to their
crimes by carjacking a getaway vehicle with a “Co-exist” bumper
