JFK Library Reopens - The Mass Media: News
We haven't heard much about this story, but remember that the day of the Boston Marathon bombing, there were also many reports of a third bomb at the JFK Library, not far away. I heard Chris Matthews on MSMBC speculate that this might be a further indication that conservatives of some ilk might have been behind the attacks, since after all JFK was a Democrat. LOL.

Now it turns out that the "bombing" had nothing to do with the Boston Marathon bombing, and was just a fire caused by "by smoking materials that were not disposed of appropriately." The library has reopened today.

Apparently you didn't, but I think the story was well-covered in the wake of the Marathon bombing(s) reporting. The criticism of Chris Matthews generally comes from RWNJs who oppose the freedom of speech ... and otherwise attack the values which have made this nation great.

He's MSNBC's Adam Bolling of FoxNews. He's an idiot, talks before he thinks, and he's hateful. the end.

There were many on the left who speculated that the bombings were done by right-wingers/conservatives of some ilk. There was the woman from NPR, there was Michael Moore, and no doubt legions of other lefties.

Granted there are nutballs on the right like a Tim McVeigh, but when this happened I guessed almost immediately that it would turn out to be Muslim-connected just because of the target. A right wing nutball is not going to go after something like the Boston marathon, which after all is a celebration of individual effort and achievement. A right wing nutball would target an IRS building, a BATF building, or an abortion clinic, but not the Boston Marathon. A Muslim nutball would have no qualms about going after the Boston Marathon, for the inverse reasons that a right wing nutball would.

That is the most idiotic thing I've read here in ages.

Oh, and if you disagree with me you are opposing freedom of speech and attacking the values which have made this nation great.

You are going to have a hard time living this one down.
