Boston Aftermath: A nation (that should be) united in grief & outrage

In the aftermath in today’s media culture of such horrors as yesterday’s bombing in Boston, we had hardly begun to mourn the victims before some voices politicized the atrocity as if their own inner “need” to make a political point superseded our own need to grieve.

We still don’t know who set the explosion in Boston and most Americans — of all political persuasions — feel numbed by what happened yesterday, particularly given the death of an 8-year-old boy. After such atrocities, writes Dana Loesch,

. . .the normal person responds by falling to their knees in prayer. The compassionate person responds with concern for the affected. The professional reports the facts and differentiates between speculation and confirmation.

It is the desperate and professionally and spiritually anemic who heartlessly view tragedy as a chance to settle some imaginary score. These individuals are baselessly impugning innocent groups and in doing so, inadvertently impugn themselves and their profession.

Via Instapundit.  Today, the nation should be united in grief, mourning those who lost their lives, praying for those injured by the attacks and resolved to discover the truth.

Whoever set these bombs, intending to kill innocent human beings, is evil — regardless of his political ideology or religious affiliation. That we know.  And at this point, we know little more than that.

Let us keep that in mind as we remember what happened yesterday in Boston and remind ourselves that our ideological adversaries, at least most of them, share our outrage at the perpetrators’ actions, our gratitude for the emergency responders — and private citizens — who helped out, our grief for those who died and our concern for the surviving victims’ wellbeing.

  2. Wow. Brendan & JPerry2006’s passionate outrage is really inspiring. You can practically see their deeply principled & sincere hysteria vibrating off the page. Clearly, they’re better people than the rest of us because like all liberals, they have that mysterious ability to just CARE MORE. In fact, I’ll bet they haven’t been this upset since they found out that poor Kahlid Sheik Mohammad wasn’t going to get that civilian trial afterall.

  5. If it would have prevented the Boston Massacre, I would have waterboarded those two bastards. Our liberal troll friends would not. Ponder that.

  7. 12 EssEm “I seem to recall 8 years of contempt for George Bush flowing like a river, nonstop.”

    Not to mention the many good, kind, peaceful liberals who publicly longed for his assassination. And the lack of outraged response by nearly all liberals.

  8. Liberal-dominated institutions such as academia and public broadcasting love to hire cop-killers and terrorists and advocates for communist tyranny. Academia is notorious for tolerating leftist and Muslim thuggery while harassing and punishing peaceful conservative dissent. What does that tell us about the true nature of liberalism?

    And that’s why I laugh when liberals like Brendan and Jperry feign “moral outrage” at my comments.
