NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston reassures us that these Boston terrorists acted alone and were not under the influence of any particular ideology.
“As investigators learn more about the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings and what Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, allegedly did, the initial theory is that “these two young men were working on their own,” NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston said Tuesday on Morning Edition.”
What a difference a week makes! Remember in the days after the bombing, Dina Temple-Raston had a different tone when she implied that the bombers were Right Wing activists who were influenced by Tea Party ideals (low taxes, patriotism, small government, etc.).
“April is a big month for antigovernment and right-wing individuals. There’s the Columbine anniversary, there’s Hitler’s birthday, there’s the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco.”
It’s very odd. When this State Run Media journalist thought the bombers were Right Wing nut jobs, she had no problem attributing ultra Conservative ideals as motivations to the bombers. But now that the real terrorists don’t fit that characterization, she’s all about telling us these guys acted alone and weren’t influenced by any outside ideology.
