If the Tsarnaev brothers had committed mass murder at the Boston Marathon in the name of any other belief system or ideology, would there be this same rush to exonerate that belief system of any connection to their crime? If the Tsarnaev brothers had been the “right-wing extremists” who hated big government and taxes, as the Leftist media was openly hoping before the killers were identified, would the Boston Globe be running a lengthy piece explaining that they weren’t actually motivated by “right-wing extremism” at all, but by their “personal failings and inner demons”?
Tamerlan Tsarnaev had vowed to die for Islam. His brother said that he carried out the Boston jihad attack because he wanted to defend Islam. There is abundant evidence that before the Boston Marathon jihad attack, Tamerlan had become a devout Muslim — but forget about all that. It was all because he heard voices inside his head.
“Boston Bombers’ family ‘was on the run from Russian mob’: Gangsters BEHEADED their dog and tortured their dad before brothers became gun-toting drug dealers in America, claims report,” from the Daily Mail, December 15 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A new report on the family of the two accused Boston Marathon bombers reveals that Tsarnaevs claimed they came to America after the father was kidnapped and tortured by Russian mobsters who then cut off their dog’s head and left it on their doorstep.
After struggling to find a place in America, the older brother Tamerlan turned to conspiracy theories and radical Islam while the younger brother, Dzhokhar started stealing marijuana – earning $1,000 a week and sometimes carrying a gun to protect his stash.
The Boston Globe claims that the Tsarneav [sic] brothers appear have been motivated less by Islamist ideology and more by their own personal failings and inner demons – making the April 15 bombings more like the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School and the Aurora, Colorado, movie theater than an al-Qaeda terrorist plot.
