Jihadi-Supporting Left Bummed Out Faisal Shahzad Wasn't Next Timothy McVeigh

Unlike Jonah Golberg, the notion that the Times Square bomb attempt was mounted by some domestic Timothy McVeigh type never remotely entered my mind. But Goldberg's dead on about about this:
A lot of liberals seem very keen to minimize or dismiss the reality of Islamic terrorism while working devilishly hard to create a false reality that the real threat is from American citizens American "rightwingers."
And right on cue, we have MSNBC's Contessa Brewer bemoaning how suspect Faisal Shahzad wasn't some extreme right-wing militant:

I mean the thing is is that and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.

And so there was part of me was really hoping this would not be the case that here would be somebody who is not the defined. I mean he’s accused he’s arrested you know I don’t want to convict him before it’s time to do so. He’s the guy authorities say is involved. But that being said I mean we know even in recent history you have the Haitari militia from Michigan who have plans to let’s face it create terror.

That’s what they were planning to do and they were doing so from far different backgrounds then what this guy is coming from. So, the threat is not just coming from people who decide that America is the place to be and you know come here and want to become citizens. Obviously this guy did.
Great commentary at Dean's World as well ... and as I always say: Nothing compares to the leftists. Absolutely nothing.
