Tom Brokaw Blames America for Boston Terror
Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw strongly suggested Sunday that America is partly to blame for the gruesome terrorists attacks in Boston, because the young, Muslim men involved may have felt “alienated” and angry over U.S. drone strikes on “innocent civilians” in Muslim countries abroad.
Would Brokaw also sympathize with Timothy McVeigh, who felt alienated and angry over Janet Reno’s massacre at Waco? Unlikely. The difference is that liberals instinctively side with Islam, because they share a common enemy: us.
He said Americans need to take a hard look at “the roots” of why so many Muslims, including Americanized terrorists like the Tsarnaev brothers in Boston, want to kill them.
Brokaw went on to denounce the “presumptuousness of the United States.”
The explanation resembled that of President Obama’s preacher, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, on the Sunday after the 9/11 attacks: “America’s chickens are coming home to roost!”
Through sheer pompousness, Brokaw has been able to dupe the gullible into thinking he is a journalist rather than a left-wing political operative.
He is, however, a self-described Democrat who in 2008 referred to Obama’s inauguration as a “velvet revolution” and equated him to Jesus Christ, while comparing GOP running-mate Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate.
In a recent National Press Club speech, moreover, he lamented the rise of the conservative press on the Internet and talk radio.
He accuses the conservative press of being “jingoistic” — i.e., patriotic, a sentiment liberal elitists depise.
Brokaw also believes that the media has an “obligation” to advocate on behalf of liberal causes.
Those whose views do not lean left he ironically compares to the same jihadists he apologizes for at his country’s expense.
If the oligarchy that is systematically destroying America in the name of depraved moonbat ideology can be personified in a single person, it would not be Obama — a lazy post turtle figurehead chosen for his race and his name — but the malignant Tom Brokaw.

Why are we left to rely on private Dutch citizens and random luck to spare us from major terror attacks?
