Would You Like to Guess?

Thanks again to The Earth-Bound Misfit for paying attention. Federal agents arrested a guy accused of planting a bomb on the MLK Day parade route through Spokane, Washington.

But, But, White People Simply Cannot Be Terrorists!

”Of course, this guy is a white dude, given that he has ties to neo-Nazis. Which means that Congressman Peter "I was For Terrorism Before I Was Against It" King won't be at all interested.”

Apparently, Congressman King isn’t the only one that isn’t interested. Did you remember the story?

Imagine if this guy was a Muslim. White, Asian or Arab wouldn’t matter. It would be on the front page. “Muslim Extremist Tries to Bomb Heartland!” Fox News would go nuts with it. Instead, you get a couple of paragraphs that actually came from The Associated Press. But at least they covered it. Can you imagine if it had happened in Atlanta? CNN would be all over it. Nonstop. They only did slightly better than Fox. (Don’t be fooled by the video. It’s old.”)

Two days after the event and a Google search brings up Salon as the top search result.

I can’t tell you why. Would you like to guess?
