How will media connect Canadian terror plot to Tea Party?

We certainly don’t want to rush to judgment and risk another scolding, but the reports coming out of Canada regarding that foiled plot to blow up a passenger rail line certainly suggest that the alleged plotters are not the white Americans David Sirota was hoping for.

Brian Ross has yet to comment, but that hasn’t stopped these investigative journalists-in-waiting from speculating.

To be fair, the last time we heard of a group arrested for plotting to blow up a bridge, it was white American males, but it wasn’t the Tea Party or Al-Qaeda, but the right-wing extremists associated with Occupy Cleveland.

Maybe right-wingers are behind the plot after all.

    If only we address Global Warming this wouldn’t be happening!

    • Stephen K

      We need a carbon tax now! Tom Friedman said that would solve all of our Islamic terrorism problems.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Come on, keep up! It’s not Global Warming anymore, it’s… (orchestral flourish)… CLIMATE CHANGE! Say it dramatic, like…”Sequeeeeeessster!” Lol!

      • John (it true me am)

        No, no, no! You’re behind! Climate Change is so 15 minutes ago. It’s now Climate DISRUPTION.

        • MissDiane47

          No, no – you’re both wrong (trixiewoobeans, too) … Global Warming & Climate Change is sooo last month!! It’s now known as Climate Sequeeeeester!! ROFLOL

          • trixiewoobeans

            Dammit! I feel so uncool! Am I going to have to start watching MSNBC to stay au courant?

          • MissDiane47

            Of course … NOT! Hahaha

    • Rulz

      Have you seen the Midwest lately?

      I’d say nature is taking care of that!

    • arttie

      We had 6 inches of white global climate change on the lawn this morning.

    • BlueGood

      Psssssst!…don’t tell the lame stream media Canadian BlueGood is a Tea Party enthusiast!…..

  • Sam I. Metler

    White people are guilty until proven innocent but all others are afforded the presumable innocence. I prefer to be held to a higher standard to be honest, anything less is to be a Muslim.

    As for the leftists whites, i wish you didn’t have small weenies and were so jealous of the real white people that have brain and bran too. .

  • CatHerder

    I can’t do this any more, folks. My BS meter blew sky-high and gave the meter reader a serious WTF infection. This looks bad, like he might be turning…conservative! Ohmygosh!

  • SpinMeNot

    *:sarc:* It seems obvious to me, that the guys they have in custody are tea party / conservatives with assumed identities planted as sleeper agents in the middle east in the hopes that they would be sent back here and could then punish our evil northern brethren for them wanting to build that ghastly pipeline … it only makes sense they would want to attack a rail line between Toronto and New York ….

    What, you say that doesn’t make any sense? When has that ever mattered to the media.

  • Stephen K

    Those Canadian Tea Partiers had such a wild time celebrating Hitler’s birthday, it took them a full day to recover from their hangovers! Makes enough sense for the media.

  • Gordon

    Canadians are polite and have conservative haircuts. Tea partiers are polite and have conservative haircuts. 2+2=

    • Gary Freeman

      2+2=terrorism. Obama math at it’s finest.

  • CDUB

    Twitchy Headline: ” How will media connect Canadian terror plot to Tea Party?”

    Is anyone else as sad as me that this headline, is being worked on in 99% of news organizations at this very moment?

    Freedom is at stake folks, this great country is dying in front of my eyes faster than imagined since 11.7.2012.

    • Dwayne Jackson

      Sorry CDUB but the USA died 11-04-2008 may she R.I.P.

  • mickeyco

    Tweets & comments all hilarious. Thanks, everyone.

  • TJ

    They don’ t need a tea party to blame when In Canada they will blame PM Stephen Harper and/or Mayor Rob Ford for dropping the ball.

  • Aaron

    I look forward to Amanda Palmer’s next poem.

  • tjp77

    Actually, if you read the comments on Gawker, the liberal consensus is that the FBI is blowing this out of proportion to frame innocent Muslims and keep the terrorism ‘bogeyman’ alive. Freaking hilarious, especially considering the week we just had.

    • Osumashi Kinyobe

      Eighteen would-be jihadists were arrested in 2006 and eventually tried. Then there is this incident.

      A coincidence? Religion has nothing to do with this? A Muslim frame-up? Who would believe that garbage?

      People who are that stupid shouldn’t be allowed to handle heavy machinery.

  • Bud-Kathy Jones

    I worked with a lot of Canadians, swear if I didn’t know better they came out of the Michigan upper peninsula.

  • stillinthe60s

    Media reporting the terrorists names were Zig and Zag!

    • IBXNJ

      Terrance and Philip are a sleeper cell!!

      • Stephen K

        They fart the train off the tracks, and then go home and have Kraft dinner.

        • Mr. Saturn

          Before or after they search for treasure?

  • lissa

    Being Canadian, and Conservative, and extremely vocal about my American neighbors’ rights to bear arms, I had better be watching for the Mounties to come to my door…

    Is there Internet in prison..?

    • Richard Jefferies

      Yes, it’s called room 101

    • NRPax

      I’m sure you Canadians have more civilized prisons than we do, so yes.

  • lillymckim

    Is it me or does it seem like every time Obama and his FBI gets backed into an embarrassing corner they find someone to arrest.. always within a day or two of the “incident”

  • lillymckim

    Canada? Who allow 30,000 plus a year of undocumented people claiming political refugee status with no follow up? Usually making their way into Michigan with fake documents that Canada?

    So surprised.

  • michael s

    Just because most of you lost the peeing contest you had with Sirota, you want to flippantly ask about a matter in another country. I didn’t know the tea party operated in Canada.

    • NRPax

      So you believed that Sirota was correct to stereotype us?

  • littleones

    you can’t be more caucasian than those who come from the caucasus…
