Sirota not alone: Boston bombing suspect ID’d as ‘dark-skinned male’; Gwen Ifill, libs go nuts

Oh, here comes the good old race card! As Twitchy reported, CNN broke the news that a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing has been identified. John King reported it was a “dark-skinned” male. Cue the outrage!

Yep. It wasn’t just the predictable Gwen Ifill. King was also on the receiving end of some freak-outs because he said he wouldn’t give further information so as to not “inflame tensions.”

Huh. But, here come the lib freak-outs.

As Twitchy reported, Salon’s David Sirota is hardest hit. Remember, he hoped the bomber was a “white guy.

Sirota wasn’t alone.

Here is an idea, libs. Why not be happy that the case is moving forward and justice may be served? But, then, that doesn’t serve your grievance-mongering, does it?


    CBS was sure to put “white male” in all caps….

  • CR

    If the guy were white, this would be on EVERY news channel, every prog blog, everywhere: Evil WHITE man has done this. White men are evil. We must end the tyranny of white man. White men are destroying this country. Every bad thing that has ever happened ever anywhere in the world can be traced back to white men. If white men didn’t do it themselves, they drove other people to do it. We must do something about the evil white men.

    If/when the guy is dark skinned: A misunderstood man we believe to have been oppressed by the white man has been driven to violence because no one would listen to his oppression and he could no longer take the evilness of the white men in silence. We must do something about the evil white men.

    • V the K

      If it was a dark-skinned man, and he bombed the Boston Marathon to “strike a blow against imperialism and the tyranny of male, white, corporate oppression,” will he be given a tenured professorship at the University of Illinois?

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Only at the Chicago campus. I doubt down in Champaign-Urbana.

        • Brian Sprouse

          he’ll be made a deacon at Rev. Rights church too.

      • E Quilibrate

        I predict he would hold out for Columbia.

      • SineWaveII

        No more like Harvard. Them someday he’ll be appointed by a democrat president to their cabinet.

      • DrSamHerman

        University of Texas at Austin. And special guest hosting privileges at S X SW.

    • E Quilibrate

      Ban them, of course.

    • Frank Drebin

      Photo just released naming this man as a “person of interest”

      • oeb25

        Probably with Reggie Love at the time and has an air-tight alibi.

      • Joey Arklasson

        Thank you for a good laugh during this god-awful week (except watching ObamaCheck go down in the Senate!) …

    • DrSamHerman

      You got it, CR. If the suspect is/were white, he or she would be immediately labeled as part of the VRWC. If he/she is Muslim or another minority, we will be subjected to 24/7 of “soul-searching” for how society “failed” and the suspect was “victimized” and the bomb is “symptomatic of a larger problem” ad nauseam. It’s going to be a long news cycle on this one.

  • canuck

    Conflicting media reports. Did Obama give the “stand down” order and make Salon the official news site for all future news coverage?

  • Jd1367

    How long before they express outrage about the “male” part? Couldn’t he be transgendered?

    • beebop1952

      Funny that they have no problems with “white supremicists” ….

    • E Quilibrate

      “male” part? Are you talking dirty now?

    • Expat61

      Or a cross dressing female. Or a transgendered male to female, cross dressing as a male. Or a non-gender identifying transgendered male to female, cross dressing as a male. Who’s on first, What’s on second, and I don’t know is on third!

  • Evi L. Bloggerlady

    Chris Matthews just lost his tingle.

    Unlike leftists Gwen Ifill, Christ Matthews and David Sirota, I care far less about the color of a terrorist, than his rapid arrest, prosecution and punishment for his evil acts. And also finding anyone who helped him. So as to stop future attacks.

    • Red Fred

      Precisely! It’s not about skin color for the reasonable. It’s about justice.

  • John Taznar

    Love how libs are upset they identified skin color, but just fine that, once again, they’re pinning it on a male.

  • Robbie C

    Is it still racist, polarizing, and insensitive if it’s true? You know…that the person who did do this is – SHOCKER – a Muslim? Maybe from one of the many African countries with large Muslim populations?

  • Wing_attack_Plan_R

    just saw this tweet from @NewsBreaker:

    NewsBreaker @NewsBreaker

    BREAKING: CBS NEWS: Man sought as possible suspect is WHITE MALE, wearing white baseball cap on backwards, gray hoodie and black jacket.

    by the end of the day authorities will claim they don’t know chit

  • disqus_eric

    Dark skinned male. Well, guess that leaves extreme tanning mom out.

    • Elaine

      Mostly they are upset it’s not a ‘white American.”

      • Worship Dancer

        a white CONSERVATIVE American

  • TomJB

    They also said “young” So I guess the police should keep using their limited resources to check out old Japanese women just to make Gwenny feel better about herself. After all, her self-esteem is must more important than actually catching the perpetrator(s).

  • Jim

    Where were all the offended libs when the media was (accurately) profiling serial killers as white males for the last 30 years?

    • ceemack

      Yeah, they were all white males.

      Except, of course, for the ones who weren’t.

      • E Quilibrate

        It’s all beginning to make sense. Frightening.

      • Jim

        The vast majority were. That’s why it’s a profile- it’s not guaranteed to be accurate, but it denotes a clear trend.

  • wbmccl

    It seems to me that if David Sirota is worried about the “existential crises” posed by the bomber’s identity (as if there isn’t an existential crises posed by Islamic terrorists whatever race the bomber ends up being), it would be best if the bomber were a gay female english-major public employee. That would mean the media could avoid writing about how evil she is and instead spend the next few months explaining how conservatives aversion to public spending and gay marriage caused her to do what she did.

    Here’s some news for Sirota: when someone bombs a sporting event practiced in the spirit of peaceful competition, they pose an existential crisis regardless of their skin color.

    • E Quilibrate

      I’m beginning to be afraid, I think I understood that.

  • Rulz

    “Disturbing that it’s OK for TV to ID a Boston bombing suspect only as “a dark-skinned individual.'”

    You mean like “white Hispanic”?

    • E Quilibrate

      Same thing only different.

  • DavidS

    dark-skinned individual…. the new white man …. anyone remember white hispanic ?

  • KansasGirl

    The extreme left-wingers need to be called out on their blatant racism toward whites.

      And conservative Black Americans.

  • Jarhead83

    Why the outrage? He may just happen to be a man with a REALLY good tan…

    • E Quilibrate

      John Boehner?

      • Clayton Grant

        Yellow skin is not dark skin. 😉

        • E Quilibrate

          Damnit, I just knew someone would do that. You ruined what I thought was real cute. Thanks anyway.

          • Guest

            Sorry Arpy!

        • $8245944


  • Zefal

    Sounds like he could be a “white Hispanic”. Does anyone know where George Zimmerman was on Monday? Just kidding, gwen, sorry if I got your hopes up.

  • Marvin Nelson

    Is it possible that this “dark-skinned male” is of Middle Eastern lineage?

    • E Quilibrate

      I don’t think you’re allowed to think that.

    • $8245944

      He’s a Saudi. They will deport him before he’s questioned.

  • agroulx

    How can ordinary American’s going about their daily lives NOT be sick and tired of this race card? To people whom are Democrats that might have a little bit of normalcy, how can they not be turned off by the Demorat, liberal mantra of “Raaaacist!” – Day in and day out…. Race race race – everything’s about color.. Liberals and blacks supposedly want to end racism, but they are the only ones talking about color! Blacks are always screaming racism, and then they go and pull the “white boy; white folk” race cards.

    I’m glad they have ID’ed someone for the bombing, but dark skinned male isn’t exactly a great description of a purp, regardless of politics. Hopefully they can get some more details out there so the arrest comes quicker.

  • Conniption Fitz

    Heck, 98% of terrorists are dark skinned males. 99% of the gangs in LA, Detroit and Chicago are dark skinned males. Well over half of the males committing violent crimes in the US are dark skinned males. They are the majority as far as miscreants are concerned.

    We should ban them. Or at least make all them register, take their fingerprints, photo IDs and samples of DNA.

  • notenoughtime

    Gwen would like the masses to believe that if the suspect is found to be white, headlines would not be blaring it is a “white” guy. A description is just that a description and if it fails to identify the sex, skin color, height and clothing it is useless.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Yeah, it’s not really a description unless it’s actually describing something.

  • marcellucci

    #Bostonbombing suspect a “dark-skinned male”…….
    Mimes around the globe breath a collective sigh of relief………

  • Carey Hayden

    Would these same over-sensitive liberals be equally “offended” if the news report said “white-skinned individual”…probably not!

    • Tom Anderson

      No they would rejoice, because their prayers were answered by that God thing that doesn’t exist.

    • Worship Dancer

      actually CNN already covered THAT – they proclaimed “WHITE MALE” was the suspect. well until a WHITE MALE no longer WAS.

  • Tom Anderson

    And yet these people had no problem with the liberal media meme that Patriots day + tax day = TEA Party or white right wing extremist. Things that make you go….FREAKYYYYYYYYYYYY!

  • Man of Little Means

    Where we these people when Chris Matthews was accusing the Tea Party or when Salon was hoping for an older white male. I just can’t sympathize with people who only sympathize with themselves. Besides get over it. Dark skinned could be Hispanic, Middle Eastern or Asian.

  • Arthur E Jackson

    Let’s called a dark skinned guy pink, and a white guy dark. A red man, light shade of grey….the sky isn’t blue anymore

  • Zefal

    Brian Ross of ABC frantically googling “dark-skinned individual” to see if any Tea Party matches come up.

  • shatwood

    Political Correctness has killed this country.

  • teamfrazzled

    I don’t get the idiocy.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    I heard it was an unemployed, EBT-abusing, dark-skinned male who used his Obamaphone to set off the devices.

  • J.N. Ashby

    I find it equally disturbing when they only describe a perp as a male in a green hooded sweatshirt…so that’s where we are now…

    Edit: Also, “dark-skinned individual” is a pretty good descriptor. It eliminates 80% of all potential suspects right off, and in Boston, 95%.

  • grais

    How would she like a dark skinned individual to be described?

  • David


  • lcky9

    Personally I don’t care WHAT color he is.. as long as he’s caught..and what is a DARK SKINNED male ??? one that DOESN’T have blonde hair and blue eyes??? that is about 1/2 of the WHITE population .. what idiots.. one thing we know it WASN’T a BLACK LIBERAL MALE.. making a bomb is to much work.. NOW that’s playing the race card..

  • Wag_a_Muffin (D)

    The Ricin guy is white. Wanna bet he gets more “ink?”

  • Michael Rice

    The next time someone says I am white, I will cry “racist”.

  • Randall

    haha, this is priceless.

  • artowar

    it was a tall black man carrying a basketball wearing a wedding dress

  • Orlando Cee

    So when is the president going to say that if he had a cousin he’d look just like the terrorist?

  • TonyMitch

    They left out ” he was a dar-skinned-white guy”.

  • Tom Anderson

    Whos Chirs Dolan? If you mean the rouge black cop who went on a murderous rampage spurred on by the likes of CM and KO, wasn’t his name Dorner? Lets not go smearing the Irish there boy-o! 😉
