NPR hack solves Boston bombing mystery: April ‘a big month for anti-government and right-wing individuals’

NPR’s counterterror correspondent Dina Temple-Raston has taken a page from Michael Moore’s math book and tied the Boston Marathon bombing to conservatives. But she’s found a way to put her own little spin on it:

But of course!

The money quote:

“April is a big month for antigovernment and right-wing individuals. There’s the Columbine anniversary, there’s Hitler’s birthday, there’s the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco.”

Welp, guess our cover’s blown. Dina’s got us all figured out!

Great question. Here’s another one:

What’s wrong with them? How much time have you got?

Reductio ad derpum.

  • Bemani Dog

    Lumping in Columbine, huh? Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were raised by liberal Democrats.

    • $29561723

      not to mention it happened DURING the Assault Weapons Ban. Epic Fail.

  • teamfrazzled

    Another useful idiot of the left. One of the most successful lies of the left is their insistence Nazism is right wing extremism-Stalin was the first when he said Nazism was the opposite of communism and they have been repeating it since. They NEED the debate to be one in which everyone seeks the totalitarian state so they can offer the phony argument at least they want it so they can use all that power to do all sorts of touchy-feely things with it and their opponents want it so they can oppress people. Deliberate deceit. Nazism and communism are BOTH leftwing extremism. What determines left/right is the system of government sought, not why they do. Communists and Nazis both seek the totalitarian state and merely disagree on who wields all that power whole offering phony arguments to cover their lust for power. Communism, fascism, totalitarianism, dictatorships are leftwing extremism. Right wingers oppose even allowing government to amass the size and power to ever become fascist or totalitarian in the first place-no matter who lusts for that power.

      Thank you! We deplore big government.

      Thou Dost Protest Too Much!Hitler a liberal Commie,you wingnuts are hilarious!

      • Expat61

        Ah, National SOCIALIST party, just sayin’. The jack-booted thugs believed in a large centralized government that planned industrial and agricultural output, with industrial/agricultural managers that were appointed by the regime, just like the USSR, China, and the Democratic party.

      • alanstorm

        Read their party platform, then come back and apologize.

        You are simply wrong on this one. Teamfrazzled is correct.

  • Billie Slash


    • Teresa Davis McCormick

      sorry LOL

      • Billie Slash

        My bad, Teresa. I should have said “liberal women”.

  • Ntr

    Hitler was a left-winger, hence National Socialism and his abuse of his selfish interpretation of Christianity (with abusive use of pagan elements) to create that cult of personality leftists using religion for their own means are known for. Jim Jones is another example of this.

    As for Columbine, those two f*ks were also leftist in their anti-religion (not atheistic) stance and belief in Darwinian, their borderline eugenicist ‘survival of the fittest’ interpretation. Someone needs to repeatedly tell the leftists this, to get it through to their dull minds, and put them in their place.

  • seanmahair

    Excuse me? Let me remind you of the government sponsored “Attack at Ruby Ridge” which killed a 15 year old, a baby and a dog or the “Waco” debacle where 100 + unarmed men, women and children died. Then there’s the Arab Spring, the now the Boston bombing. Seems to me the anti-government meme is really thin, but as a liberal never let the fact get in the way of a lazy reasoned rant.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Oh yes, and don’t forget, when Janet Reno was crying about how they were all about saving the children, she ordered the tanks and gas in. Gas is indiscriminate, and will take out the children faster. Clinton’s watch, no? I thought so.

  • TroyGates

    Why would the right celebrate Hitler? He created a gun registry and then disarmed the public with it. The is very anti-right wing.

    • Tom Anderson

      Connect the dots, Hitler was a monster. All republican/conservatives/TEA party people are monsters.

      • liberalssuck

        Actually lets look at the recent mass murders, Holmes ows black group, The temple shooter neo Nazi, a knock off of the kkk, a left created group. Envelope mailer, democrat. So how are we monsters when you idiots do all the killings? So Tom when you going to snap?

        • Tom Anderson

          Never or after lunch. I haven’t decided.

          • liberalssuck

            As long as you have a plan!! Lol!!

          • Tom Anderson

            Keep scrolling down suck…..

          • liberalssuck

            I am sorry that really made no sense. Please try again. So are you a liberal? If so then we really have nothing more to discuss! So you tried to insult me while at the same time calling some one out for doing it to you. Ah yes a liberal, nothing like hypocrisy!

          • Tom Anderson

            No, not even close to being liberal. Black conservative here. We are a growing number.

      • $8245944

        You’re right–Hitler was a monster, just like you.

        • E Quilibrate

          Correct… the difference is Hitler wasn’t stupid. Seems
          the one you respond to might be.

        • Tom Anderson

          Thank you, thank you very much.

          • $8245944

            Are you homely, very short with a tiny mustache, too?

          • Tom Anderson


          • $8245944

            That’s what you get for not using a sarc tag. lol

          • Tom Anderson

            Let me guess….you’re MMs cousin?

      • Tantalus XVI

        I’m just gonna repost what Troy said because you should read it again.

        “Why would the right celebrate Hitler? He created a gun registry and then disarmed the public with it. The is very anti-right wing.”

        Did I mention you are a racist? homophobe? and *any other insult totally unrelated but who cares anymore*

        • Tom Anderson

          None of the above but thanks for the name calling.

      • trixiewoobeans

        Yep, you’re the CRD (Closet Racist-of-the-Day).

        • Tom Anderson

          You guys are funny. Progressives call me worse everyday. Nice job jumping the shark on this one tho.

          • trixiewoobeans

            My apologies. I’ve gotten “dinged” for stuff taken out-of-context, or just plain misunderstood also. I TRY to be clearer, now. Til next time…..

          • Tom Anderson

            Thank you trixie.

      • Tom Anderson

        I was obviously mis-understood here, I was simply repeating what the progressive “logic” is on this. I belong to the TEA Party. Know thy enemy or don’t, it doesn’t matter to me.

        • $8245944

          The sarc tag / is your friend. lol

          • Tom Anderson

            So is thinking before you type, or asking for clarification before you start calling posters names.

            Example; You don’t really believe that crap do you?
            Answer: No, that would be totally asinine, but that’s how they think.

          • $8245944

            Please don’t whine. Grow a pair, Tom.

          • Tom Anderson

            A simple oops, I did misunderstand you comment and apology would be sufficient. That’s what adults do socon.

          • $8245944

            A sense of humor would help, too, right?

          • Tom Anderson

            I have a great sense of humor. You didn’t see me calling anyone everything but a child of God. Did ya?

        • liberalssuck

          Then accept my apologies, but your statement does not read well, maybe a sac tag would have help :)!

          • Tom Anderson

            Thank you suck. Lessons learned. I dont know all these symbols, but in translating progressive speak in the future, I think Ill include the question in the answer!

          • liberalssuck

            Fair enough. most folks being sarcastic at the end put a sarc.. tag I have failed to do so a fair amount also. I feel your pain!!

          • Tom Anderson

            Its all good suck. Once youve been called the names that I have by progressives, conservatives are pretty tame! (HUMOR) I try to remember the /sarc tag tho. Thanks.

  • CO2 Producer

    Today is the 30th anniversary of the 1983 US Embassy bombing in Beirut that killed 63 people, including 17 Americans.

    • nc

      Has it really been 30 years?

    • CatHerder

      Wow, that long? My kid brother was one of the honor guard at the memorial service back then. Got in a wreck on the way back to LeJeune and nearly lost his legs.

    • Walter Hefty


      I was a LITTLE kid when it happened, but I remember it rather clearly! It’s hard to believe it’s been that long.

      • CO2 Producer

        I was young when it happened, too, but I have a better recollection of the attack that killed 241 US Marines at their barracks in Beirut on October 23rd, 1983. It’s too bad the anniversary of this event was roundly forgotten in the midst of all the other news yesterday. There was this commentary about it on The Blaze yesterday. John Kerry addressed the attack in a State Dept. press release. Since this anniversary went largely unnoticed, the October 23rd attack had better get some greater attention.

  • Scott Carroll

    February is a big month for pro-government and left-wing individuals. Left-wing mass murderer Kermit Gosnell was born. Also Fidel Castro became premier of Cuba.

  • RblDiver

    But of course, because clearly conservatives celebrate the birthday of the leader of the National SOCIALIST party!

  • EverybodyTalks

    I called this….sort of. I figured the Far Left Libs would blame the Tea Party but sometimes it is hard to guess exactly where the chimps are going to throw their crap.

    • E Quilibrate

      Beautifully apropos.

  • nc

    And these are supposed to be the intellectuals of the Media world. God help us.

      They are the only ones who suppose that.

      They say! Don’t fall for their bs. If she had any talent she’d be on a media platform people listen to. You know, like CNN.

    De-fund NPR now! We should not be forced to pay for any part of this crap!

    “Reductio ad derpum.” >yoink!<

  • CrustyB

    Hitler believed in nationalizing private industry, gun control and he hated the idea of a Jewish state. Right-wing??

  • $8245944

    Hitler was a socialist, moron.

    You democrats enslaved Black Americans, too.

  • MrApple

    This war of words is so surreal.
    “anti-government and right-wing individuals” = people who don’t wish to have their Constitutional Rights eroded away and will fight for those rights, even for those that don’t wish to exercise them

  • Guest

    If this was about 4/20, then why so many days in advance? BTW 4/20 is also “Marijuana Day”. Maybe they’re about the ganja? Or (shock. horror) we wait, arrest these pukes and then find out what this evil act is all about, aside from just pure evil.

    “April is a big month for antigovernment and right-wing individuals.
    There’s the Columbine anniversary, there’s Hitler’s birthday, there’s
    the Oklahoma City bombing, the assault on the Branch Davidian compound
    in Waco.”

    She truly is an idiot.

    1. Yep I celebrate the antigovernment individuals that kicked piersey morgan’s ancestor’s asses all the way back to Boston.

    2. Columbine—really?

    3. Hitler’s birthday—sweetheart he was more aligned with your leftist beliefs than anyone on the right.

    4. Oklahoma City Bombing—Timothy McVeigh—MURDERING COWARD.

    5. Compound in Waco—Bill Clinton—MURDERING COWARD.

    • $8245944

      McVeigh was an atheist–hardly a conservative.

    • Jason Call

      No, Waco was all Elton John.

      • Jason Call

        oops, I mean Janet Reno.

  • Derek Penner

    It could’ve been North Koreans celebrating Kim Il Sung’s birthday. April 15th, as in the day of the bombing.

  • Tom Anderson

    Unflippingbelieveable. I have no words. I do have a hand itching to bitch slap anyone at NPR tho.

  • Teresa Davis McCormick

    waco??? really… the dems want to really talk about Waco?

    • Gallatin

      No I really think they don’t.

  • kmne68

    Well, the “anti-government” bit does have kind of deep roots:

    “Concord Hymn”
    “By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
    Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
    Here once the embattled farmers stood,
    And fired the shot heard round the world.

    The foe long since in silence slept;
    Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
    And Time the ruined bridge has swept
    Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

    On this green bank, by this soft stream,
    We set to-day a votive stone;
    That memory may their deed redeem,
    When, like our sires, our sons are gone.

    Spirit, that made those heroes dare,
    To die, and leave their children free,
    Bid Time and Nature gently spare
    The shaft we raise to them and thee.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    Those farmers would be called terrorists today. I am in no way condoning terrorism for any cause. But Americans should remember their own history.

    • 3seven77

      Ahem. “Anti-government”? More anti-tyranny. As I recall, the colonists didn’t really have a say in their “government”.

    • Walter Hefty

      Yeah, how about ‘No’?

      Don’t like the founding of our nation? Deal with it, or feel free to self-deport.

    Amazing how the NPR fails to acknowledge just how big December, January, February and March were for Left wing Loony Libtards, ehh? Not to Mention the Aurora murders and almost every other act of violence in the last several years. Not to mention there is NO CONNECTION to Conservatives at all.

  • WVS

    Suspect at large is reportedly missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi. A photo of suspect in a Che shirt has, somehow, already been tweeted by Ace of Spades. So NPR, and anyone else pushing the “right-wing extremists” narrative: Shove. It. Right-wing extremists love this country and would rip these lunatics to pieces given half a chance. The only domestic extremists who bomb America are the ones who shaped your messiah’s ideology decades ago.

    Sorry for waxing political on this story, it’s probably not appropriate–but at least I waited till I had something resembling information to go on, unlike some “journalists.”

    EDIT: Not Tripathi. Apologies to him and his family. Hope he’s all right out there somewhere…maybe all this has turned up new leads in his case. But the message stands: The suspects, for sure this time, are Chechen Muslims who spent time in the Middle East. So NPR and others, you can still take your baseless propaganda narrative and shove it.

  • Monte Anderssen

    NPR is nothing but a tax payer funded communist liberal left wing mouth piece filed with boot lickers. Another part of the Dictators propaganda machine.

    Hitler was a socialist. Lefty Oops #1.

    Columbine occurred during a Democrat administration, in a school “protected” by Democrat-imposed “safety” laws. Lefty Oops #2.

    City bombing also occurred during a Democrat administration, in a
    building underfunded in security, by way of Democrat policies. Lefty
    Oops #3.

    The assault on David Koresh’s compound in Waco Texas took
    place during a Democrat administration, under orders of the Democrat
    controlled Justice Department and ATF. Lefty Fubar #4.

    Batting 0 for 4, you nutball moron!

  • Gango Banga

    This woman is a wretch to the American people. She should go back to Belgium.

  • willtell2012

    What do they do now? What does the left do now? The bombers were Chechnyan and espoused sympathy for Al Queda on video’s they posted. Lawrence O’Donnell, along with many other media, attempted to tie the bombing to radical white Americans by saying the NRA was interfering with the Boston Bombing investigation. Before you leftists try to defend your ideology why don’t you listen to the bomber’s uncle’s explanation of the reason behind the bombing, “Big losers,” he said. “They were unable to settle and therefore hated everyone else who had.” This Nazi stuff is rediculous as well… the Nazi’s were a socialist party… thats the left’s domain.

  • lcky9

    and I have to pay MY money to support this idiot??? APRIL is nothing more than another month since I PAID my taxes in MARCH… some of us don’t commit tax fraud or blame TURBO TAX or bad memory to avoid paying OUR fair share like the LEFT DOES..

    Just more talking points for the Obama Administration. NPR is just another branch of OFA. We tax payers have to live with this leftist group and it’s just a damn shame.

    Every month is a big month for ” idiocy” on NPR. Most people tune in to hear snobs reading poetry then trying to explain it. If you have to explain it, the person reading it is an idiot.
