Planting the Seed of Propaganda: Media Repeatedly Suggests Patriots are Responsible for Boston Marathon Bombing

Not unlike the horrible shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Boston Marathon bombing has become a “blame-it-on-patriots” media event. Without any proof whatsoever, speculation in the mainstream media is pointing the finger directly at people who believe in independence and freedom from tyranny.

None of the mainstream outlets is asking why a person against paying taxes or someone who is pro-Constitution would attempt to harm people out enjoying a race. They are simply looking for a scapegoat. And no kid on the playground is more unpopular than the one who refuses to be herded along with the other children.

Instead of pulling together in solidarity to support the victims of this horrible attack, the “divide-and-conquer” campaign was underway within an hour of the first bomb detonating.

You don’t require my narrative – I’ll just supply the evidence that an unfounded attack on Patriots is underway. Is the stage being set to present a patsy to further an agenda? You be the judge:

Just over an hour after the attack, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer suggested that tax protesters and Patriot’s Day may have been to blame. “One intriguing thought here…it is a state holiday in Massachusett’s called Patriot’s Day and who knows if that had anything at all to do with these explosions.” Correspondent: “That’s always a possibility, you know, especially with it being deemed “Patriot’s Day” there in Boston, Wolf. ”

Next, also from CNN, National Security Analyst Peter Bergen suggested that “right wing extremists” were likely culprits.

Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan speculated on Twitter that an anti-government group may be responsible for the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon.

“We don’t know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows.

David Axelrod, former Obama advisor, told CNN that Obama was thinking about tax day. “And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day. Was it someone who was pro–you know, you just don’t know…”

A former FBI agent speculated that “It would not surprise me if this is some local extremist group trying to make a statement.” Brad Garrett mentioned Patriot groups, domestic extremists, neo-Nazis, anti-tax demonstrators and anti-government groups.

Not to be left out, Chris Matthews of MSNBC pointed out that it was “tax day” and “Patriot’s Day”, suggesting the attack had to be domestic.

This morning, not surprisingly, CNN was at it again. The media mouthpiece published a lengthy article making baseless comparisons between this horrific attack and other violent incidents that took place in the United States, linking “domestic terrorism”, “right wing extremism” and “militia activity.”

It’s now a day that will go down in history along with other violent U.S. incidents in April, including the 1993 FBI siege of David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, a mass shooting at Columbine High School in 1999 and the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007.

Only the Waco siege and the Oklahoma City bombing actually occurred on April 19, the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Still, to many following developments in Boston online, the proximity of Monday’s attack to the April 19 anniversaries was enough to suggest an act of domestic terrorism.

“Obviously, nobody knows anything yet,” Esquire magazine’s Charles Pierce said, “but I would caution folks jumping to conclusions about foreign terrorism to remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts … and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.”

McVeigh and Oklahoma City bombing co-conspirator Terry Nichols were associated with the extreme right-wing and militant Patriot Movement, which rejects the legitimacy of the federal government and law enforcement. Adherents sometimes form armed militia groups and claim the right to armed self-defense against what they believe to be an oppressive government.

McVeigh said he targeted the Federal Building in Oklahoma City to avenge the raid on Waco. Despite commonly held beliefs, it’s unclear whether the Columbine shooters timed that attack to mark either Adolf Hitler’s birthday or the Waco incident.

Time Washington correspondent Alex Altman also noted Patriots Day’s “significance” to the “militia movement” in a tweet that was shared 507 times. He also mentioned the Oklahoma City bombing anniversary. In a subsequent tweet, he clarified that “OKC was on Apr. 19, anniversary of the Battles of Lexington & Concord, which are celebrated in Mass as Patriots Day.”

But is there really something about this time of the year that makes domestic terrorism more prevalent?

Approximately 4 minutes into this video Fox News anchors began to speculate about domestic terrorists.

Even the British media has jumped into the blame game, with this article suggesting that the Tea Party was responsible:

The right-wing extremist theory was strengthened by fact April 15 is tax day, an event that in recent years has been used as a rallying date for members of the Tea Party group.

The Tea Party movement is, of course, named after the famous Boston Tea Party political protest of 1773 and, with President Obama’s taxation policies widely criticised by many conservative groups – both moderate and extreme – the date is increasingly seen as a focal point for right-wing protest.

Never let a good crisis go to waste, seems to be the theme of the Powers That Be in the United States.  Brandon Smith wrote an excellent analysis:

Along with the immediate strangeness of the attack, the timing is also rather perfect for the establishment.

April 15th is tax day across the nation, and Tax Protest Day sponsored annually by Tea Party organizations across the country also just happened to fall on the 15th this year.  On top of this, in Massachusetts, Patriots Day (a civic holiday celebrating the battles of Lexington and Concord) is held on the third Monday of April every year, which just happened to be the 15th this year.  Oath Keepers, a constitutional organization often wrongly attacked as a “domestic extremist group” by the DHS and SPLC, just happened to have a large pro-freedom rally scheduled for the 19th of April at Lexington Green in Massachusetts.  Are we starting to get the picture here?

With the Senate in the midst of the most blatant attack on our 2nd Amendment rights in history following the passage of the absurdly fascist NDAA and the White House’s unwillingness to remove American citizens as potential targets for executive ordered assassination,  and with multiple states now implementing draconian gun restrictions and even confiscations, public opinion is quickly moving against the Federal Government.  Wouldn’t it be beneficial for their agenda if it turned out that the Boston Marathon Bombing was executed by a group of “pro-gun anti-income tax anti-government domestic terrorists”, or maybe just Constitutionalists and Liberty Movement activists that are labeled as such?

Wouldn’t that be a big turn-off for those on the fence but shifting towards gun rights and constitutionalism?  Wouldn’t it be great for the DHS and the SPLC if all their anti-Constitutionalist propaganda was suddenly proven “correct”?  Maybe the TSA could even suggest roving street checkpoints and random searches so that such a calamity “never happens again”.

Like many other senseless crimes, we may never know the truth of “who” or “why”. But watch for more rights to be taken away “for our safety”. Watch for more intrusions into our privacy. Watch for more finger-pointing towards those who question the unConstitutional actions taking place in the United States.  Watch for smoke and mirrors from Washington as they decide how they can best use the Boston Bombing to aid their agenda.

Do you see where this is going? Without one shred of evidence, a bulls-eye has been painted on those who love God, liberty, and the founding principles of the country.

Don’t be surprised when an unwitting patsy is wheeled forth by the media – one who owns an AK-47, flies a Gadsden flag, and carries a well-thumbed pocket copy of the Constitution.

For now, pray for the victims and pray for those seeking the truth.

UPDATE:  4/17/13:  A suspect has been identified.  Is the timing of this a distraction?

  • I recently stumpled upon this site from a friend who posted an article on facebook-this website is not only changing the way I am living and spending money, but also it reassures me. It makes me feel better that im not the only one who thinks like this, and realizes how disgusting the media really is.

    • Mary ~

      Thank you very much for your kind words. It really means a lot to me to read them.


      • Excellent and very timely contribution Daisy. WOW is the only “understatement” that comes to mind. Watching your continued progression is an extraordinarily satisfying experience and part of my day.

  • First, too all Americans & secondly to all involved with the marathon no matter what country you came from my sincere sympathy on this senseless act. Our prayers are for all who have suffered physically or emotionally. At times like this, one is at a loss for words. Hopefully the real perpetrator will soon be found so that the emotional healing may begin. I always feel so sad when the innocent must suffer for someones warped ideology, feelings, or beliefs. May God bless all who helped so valiantly to rescue the injured & get them to safety & medical help.

    • Exactly, unless the media also points out that most right wing extremists don’t exercise, are fat and lazy, and think shooting guns is sport. Perhaps these right wingers figured they could kill some liberal exercise freaks. This is all sarcasm by the way. Of course it was done to discredit freedom minded people.

  • Yet another attack where the government was carrying out “exercises”. Odd how often that happens; don’t you think?

    I can’t help but wonder if the extremists that carried out this attack are camped out in Washington D.C.. For some reason, it would not surprise me at all.

  • Well now, it looks like false flagging has become US’s shadow
    government only resource. What ever happened to originality; just comes to show you all, if it works why fix it. America better wake up and stop going to work on Monday, because it will be the only way we can stop this machine from imprisoning all
    of us. We have to get our self eduction rolling and, quickly at that. We have to communicate with our families, friends and everything in between; we have to keep up with the details and all information. We must not trust government, if we want to keep our republic. Remember the definition of a ‘republic governed nation’ is simply defined as a nation ruled by the people’s interest not the governments.

  • It’s very suspicious indeed, I think Wolf is trying to draw attention from himself by blaming those dirty “patriots” even though he and his CNN cohorts may have been behind the whole dastardly plot the entire time. It was a pretty slow news day after all and this has been great for CNNs ratings. I think the police should pay a visit to Wolf and see if he has any screws in his garage, or did he use them all to make the bomb?

  • They are so well practiced at the ‘repeat a lie’ method of creating reality that it may eventually be what takes them down in the eyes of more sheeple. Kind of like overusing this gimic of running ‘drills’ at the same time as an attack. Once or twice could have gone un-noticed perhaps but wow, here we are again, by coincedence, our protectors are out their practicing for the very attack that is arriving that day. Amazing!

      • A phone threat isn’t something they would have to hide or lie about. Bomb sniffing dogs and extra security would make perfect sense for this event too. But another ‘terrorist attack’ that imitates an ongoing ‘drill’? – this approach has gotten old.

    • Saying that they are running a drill is their only cover not having thier people monitoring the situation. You’d think the Boston bomb squad might run their “drills” on a different day than the Boston Marathon, when their services might actually come in handy. Of course the sheer mathematical probablity of these “terrorist attacks” occurring on the same day that they are running a drill, and the sheer coincidence that the “terrorist attacks” completley mirrors in every way, what they were training for, must be like 500 billion to one odds. For example, There are 365 days a terrorist could detonate a bomb. There are 365 days a bomb squad could practice a drill. Just for this to occur on the same day is 133,225 to one. Then multiply that by the number of city bomb squads in the USA, and the number of major cities that this could have occurred in, let’s say 250 bomb squads in 250 ciites and that would be 133,225 X 250 bomb squads = 33,306,250 to one. Then 33,306,250 X 250 major cities = ?? My calcualtor wont go that high. The media would have an easier time winning a lottery rather than having such a coincidental story fall into their lap. What a joke. Hiding in plain site, the logic completely refutes that this was coincidence, and had to be orchestrated from within.

  • Let’s see…. A month ago Al Qaeda in Northern Pakistan threatens attacks in America and “blood in the streets”. The bombs were exactly the type being used in Afghanistan and northern Pakistan. And they were the first group to call the AP and claim innocence? Not buying it! Love the new site look!!

  • All of the anti-Jewish bigots seem to come out from under their Daily Kos rocks to blame the Mossad. Get off of it already! A Saudi national was seen running from the explosions, Boston PD is searching for another DARK SKINNED foreign national in connection with the bombing. And lest we forget, Nidal Hassan has yet to be tried for the murder of 12 Ft Hood soldiers and the wounding of 33 other troops! Three years and counting. Is Hassan also a Jewish Mossad agent?

    • @ vincent: you sound like a hypocrite, and you do not even realize it. Who is calling who a “bigot”? The Saudi National was tackled by a bystander for no other reason than the fact that he looked arabic and was running. Funny that, running away from an explosion is suspicious activity. The guy that tackled him was running, too.

  • I was stunned to learn of the bombing. However, I am even more astonished to view the broadcasting of the event every 5 minutes, day after day. With few facts to work with, the news media more than MADE UP the rest. Without the facts, their blah blah is merely gossip. The established format now is news as “entertainment”. It has been since WACO and 9/11
    Well, when you don’t have ethics nor integrity, what’s left?

  • you fail to review the conjecture on right wing TV this week: Christian Broadcasting Network had commentators positing it was Islamic extremists because “they always seek out soft targets.” Come on. That’s what all terrorists do. Why don’t you present a balanced picture? And how did you find all these clips?

  • Just an idea here but in regards to this:
    “One intriguing thought here…it is a state holiday in Massachusett’s called Patriot’s Day and who knows if that had anything at all to do with these explosions.” Correspondent: “That’s always a possibility, you know, especially with it being deemed “Patriot’s Day” there in Boston, Wolf. ”
    I do believe Wolf was only referring to an attacker who may have chosen the date specifically because it is a holiday that celebrates patriots. Not that patriots are responsible. Interpretation is key, of course, but we should be careful not to fuel a fire that we cannot keep burning.

  • “Al Qaeda in Northern Pakistan.” Did you see the videos released today. Those guys were AMERICANS. WHITE. Get real people.

    • You might, in the light of recent evidence, like to reflect on the fact that not all Muslims are dark skinned. Even in Afghanistan blue eyes an blond and red haired people are quite common.
