Awesome: MFM Changes Its Spin on Shahzad

This post notes that at first the "out liberals" (those not in the closet, like Matthews) first tried to blame the Times Square bomb on the "right-wing."

Now that it's known, as could easily have been guessed, to have been an Islamized immigrant, they have a new slam against the "right-wing" -- that we will indulge in an orgy of racist retribution for the act.

That's beautiful. They can't lose. First we're blamed for doing it in the first place. If that doesn't pan out, there's always Plan B -- blame us for an overreaction to the event and claim that that overreaction is in fact worse than the crime that provoked it.

An overreaction, incidentally, that never actually comes. Even after 9/11, there were only three or four acts of documented anti-Muslim violence in the entire 300-million-strong country.

Plan A: The right did it.

Plan B: Okay, the right didn't do it, per se, but now the right is going to go on a murderous racist crime-spree in reaction to it.

Every time. Ev-er-y time.

Either we're responsible for the crime itself or we're responsible for worse crimes (in this telling), becoming accessories-to-chaos-after-the-fact.

Either way, we're always guilty. Of something.
