The Problem with Speculating on events

So Borepatch put this up.   I'm not even a tiny bit surprised by any of those comments. 

So Judson Phillips @ Tea Party Nation is spouting facts that aren't. 

So the Huff Post responds with it's own crap

The statement on the website claims these kind of terrorist attacks will happen again, sooner rather than later, because the enemy is determined, and because "we have a government that is not committed to protecting America." The statement goes on to say it's "a pretty safe bet right now that this attack was carried out by an Islamist. ... [O]ur government is not committed to destroying our enemy. Radical Islam is our enemy."
Despite early reports of a mysterious "Saudi national" possibly involved with the bombing, no credible evidence currently links the Boston explosions to Al Qaeda or Islam.
That, of course, has not stopped groups like Tea Party Nation from making the connection themselves. In the aftermath of the attack, Tea Party Nation's opinions were echoed by noted anti-Islam advocate Pamela Geller, who took her own unsubstantiated views to social media:
OK so Tea-Party Nation says something unsubstantiated and gets taken to task by Huff, but the crap spouted by Moore, Mohr, NPR and company is fine.
There still is no link between the attack and AL-Qaeda, regardless of  what CBS reports and Al-Qaeda may wish for.   The information so far does not support this.  So why the hell speculate.  When your wrong, it makes you look as stupid as NPR, Michael Moore and, Jay Mohr.  

You're all Idiots.   Stop being in such a hurry to be WRONG.

You want to know why the divide between the right and left is growing? Because the media supports that divide, it sells Simulated News-Like Entertainment©.  This crap is accomplished on both sides by spewing speculative garbage as if it were fact, then counting on the emotional leverage, but also counting on the actual statements to be forgotten if they happen to be wrong.    Yeah, well the Internet Never Forgets.   Congratulations your a Moron for All Eternity.
