Boston bombing suspect had right-wing extremist literature

Postby AJRC » 06 Aug 2013, 03:51

One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings, was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the eldest brother, subscribed to publications containing articles about government conspiracy theories and white supremacy. He also had reading material on mass killings.

Why does this not surprise me that he's a loony. :roll:

You may not be surprised, but don't fall for the flaw in critical thinking in their research for the show. There is no evidence that one incident causes the other. BBC Panorama itself would be accused of some kind of conspiracy if they are saying that possessing radical literature caused the brothers to execute the bombing. If they are not making such a claim, then they are only stating the obvious. On network television. Where they earn a profit. Especially when sensationalism is broadcast.

No, they never said the right wing material caused them to commit terrorism. They just said they were in possession of white supremacist and conspiracy theory material. You know, the usual loony stuff.

Unfortunately, some of these loonies are deadly serious. I was reading just yesterday that more and more groups of fanatical Islamists are supporting Al Qaeda. It gives them kudos to be be connected with the name, and members are now admitted on a less strict basis than they've previously been.

One young man reported how, at the age of 14, he joined one of the factions with the promise that his family'd be given money and cared for. Once he got there, he saw a very different scene. Another youngster'd tried to escape, was caught, and the recruits were made to sit and watch as he was tied up and had his throat cut. The effect which this had on those watching, terrified them, as you'd expect, and luckily, this particular boy DID manage to escape eventually.

The article furthered that these Jihadists are gleefully trying to tell the world that they're still there and growing in numbers, meanwhile continuing to plot atrocities to get noticed.

Yes, they seem mad, but heavy indoctrination's an evil tool to use on vulnerable people - some of whom've only seen and heard fighting since birth.

Unfortunately that's the true evil of indoctrination. It targets the young and vulnerable and browbeats them to such an extent they can't think for themselves, they no longer do what they want to do, they do what they're told to do. The will believe everything they are told to believe, and think whatever they are told to think.
