Perplexing AP headline of the day – and a rewrite of Contessa Brewer’s bizarre quote

Posted by: ST on May 5, 2010 at 8:39 am

Hmmm:

NY car bomb suspect cooperates, but motive mystery

Er, um, what is it about the violent, brutal nature and motivations behind Islamofascism that the folks at the Associated Press don’t get, exactly?

Oh that’s right – they typically turn a blind eye to that sort of thing. My bad.

And if that’s not bad enough, Radio Equalizer’s Brian Maloney caught MSDNC’s Contessa Brewer actually confessing yesterday on a liberal talk show that she was bummed out that the Times Square car bomber was a radical Islamist rather than, presumably, a right winger. More, via Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters:

CONTESSA BREWER: I mean the thing 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 I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry.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 Hutaree 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 than 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. And obviously this guy did.

09:11

BREWER: What’s interesting is you know we’re seeing within the boundaries of the United States it’s the people that they’re arresting seem to be you know- these loners, in some ways. I mean, the underwear bomber had obviously been sent. There was a network behind him. But, they’re guys who are, I don’t know, isolated some ways from their families. It will be interesting when we hear what is the background of Faisal Shahzad as we are, you know, of course our NBC crews are on that and looking onto more background there. We’ll find out more. Were there failed family ties? Did he have a strong community network here in the United States? Did he feel isolated?

Why, why – she sounds almost like a liberal politician.

I’m going to rewrite part of Contessa’s quote in the context of how her network – the preferred network of the Obama administration – has unjustifiably demonized Tea Party members over the last year and a half. This is what it would sound like if she – and her network of angry far leftists like Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews – were actually fair-minded:

CONTESSA BREWER: I mean the thing is that- and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this [threat against a Dem Congresswoman] was not going to be anybody with remote ties to any kind of conservative movement because there are a lot of people who want to use this threatening intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain political parties or whose political beliefs don’t square with the President’s. 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.

There. That’s better.

    Awwww, poor Contessa! She’s so disappointed that the bomber wasn’t a tea partier.

    You stay classy, libs!!

  2. Great re-write SJ. The irony is that Contessa is either so brainwashed or so dumb that she likely couldn’t even discern the sad irony of her own words in discussing the ethnicity of Shahzad and those who might use it against an entire class of people. Her own ideological kin do that everyday against loyal U.S. citizens who exercise their BoR 1 rights to protest against Obama’s and Congress’ massive power grab.

    Seems she was appropriately named by her parents; she is the Countess of Stupid.

    And….they still think they are a majority.

    Well, I’m no longer with em and I don’t know anyone who is that was. Keep chasin those black dogs in dark rooms, oh and good luck with this Contessa.

  4. Great White Rat says:

    Add to that Mayor Bloomberg’s clucking noises about how there must be absolutely no hard feelings toward Muslims over this incident.

    Truth is, these libs will remain willingly obtuse and blind to the realities of Islamofascism right up to the moment it beheads them.

    They’ll still be blaming it on George Bush. Or maybe the terrorists are upset about global warming. Or something equally ludicrous.

  5. gus says:

    Why do LIBTARDS love Islamofascists and hate Conservatives??

    Think about that.

    Islamofascists don’t like liberals.
