There's a ratio of perception among the corrupt and left-leaning media with regard to Islamic terror attacks and threats as opposed to attacks and threats from right-wing extremists such as Timothy McVeigh, Eric Rudolph, and the Michigan Militia, ca. 1995.
I'd say it's about 100-1. Or perhaps, closer to 1,000-to-one. In other words, it seemingly would take 100 actual acts of terrorism perpetrated by Islamofascists (e.g., 9/11, Fort Hood in November 2009, the Madrid train bombings in 2004, the London attacks in 2005, and the Mubai, India, hotel attacks in 2008) to elicit as intense a media response as just one act or threat from someone dubbed a right wing extremist.
Keep in mind that the fundamental Islamists' actual attacks are supplemented by plentiful evil plots that are uncovered or thwarted just in the nick of time (shoe bomber Richard Reid, the Times Square Bomber, the "Underwear Bomber" in a jet over Detroit, the Fort Dix, N.J., terror plot in 2007, etc.)
I mention this a few days after learning about Roger Stockham, a nut job from California, who was found parked outside of a large mosque in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn with a truck full of explosives and weapons. The mosque was full of hundreds of mourners at a funeral. Dearborn has America's largest Arab American population.
Just watch: The media will seize upon the fact the guy is a Vietnam War veteran, and pretty soon Glen Beck, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich will be blamed for fanning the flames of so-called Islamophobia. A cursory look at the article to which I've linked mentions that Stockham spent time in prison for threatening former President George W. Bush and threatening to bomb a veterans' clinic.
Any rational, reasonable person not blinded by raging left-wing hormones would know this guy doesn't fit the right wing reactionary out of central casting. (Arent' right wingers supposed to be pro-military and patriotic? Wasn't Bush a right-wing fascist according to the kooks of the left? If so, why would a fellow wingnut threaten to kill him and bomb a veterans' center?)
But again, a rational thought process is just not a part of left wingers' mental outlook. The fact that someone threatened to blow up Muslims will make the Bolsheviks at MSNBC froth at the mouth.
Mayor Bloomberg in New York, who laughably speculated that the Times Square bomber was probably just some whacky Tea Partier upset about Obamacare, is probably apoplectic about the Dearborn wanna-be bomber.
Christiane Amanpour, Katie Couric, Bill Moyers and the rest will lecture us stearnly about the prevalence of Islamophobia in the United States. Mr. Stockham, you see, is just one of probably millions of hateful, bigoted and intolerant Americans who would love to run the Muslims out of the country. We're just a bunch of nutty, angry, hateful, bigoted Tea Partiers who are upset that America isn't all white, that gays are not run out of town on a rail, and that Muslims are allowed in the country.
Incredible as it may seem, MILLIONS of idiot liberals think that way. They are a dime a dozen, and WAY too many of them ply their trade in the Fourth Estate. Utterly incredible and amazing. Well, on the positive side, the abysmal circulation figures of the New York Times, Washington Post, Time and Newsweek, and plunging ratings of CBS, NBC and ABC news, attest to the fact there are far more reasonable, rational and sane Americans than left wing nutjobs.
