Alexander’s Law of Evil and Stupid says that while there are two great negative forces at work in this world, stupid will kill you long before evil has a chance to get it’s morning coffee.
The New York Post:
A “deafening’’ explosion rocked Chelsea Saturday night, injuring 29 people, blowing out scores of windows and forcing the evacuation of at least two buildings.
The blast went off in a 4-by-4-by-3-foot construction Dumpster outside the Townhouse Inn of Chelsea at 131 W. 23d St.
Mayor de Blasio called the explosion an “intentional act,’’ but not believed to be connected to terrorism.
Let’s suppose there’s a chance that rival gangs are now exploding pressure-cooker bombs in New York City. Or that there’s some explanation — as yet NOT understood — for bombs to go off in a major U.S. city.Isn’t the intentional explosion of a bomb near a civilian population center an act of terrorism?
It’s certainly not an act of peace, or charity, or understanding. Whoever built this bomb — and I pray people smarter than De Blasio are working on this — whoever built this bomb is going to be charged with domestic terrorism.
Have I mentioned lately how much I think people who build bombs and explode them randomly near civilians are just plain scum? Actually, burglars, contract killers and pedophiles should look down their noses at cowards who plant bombs to kill people.
The knee jerk reaction of politicians to assure us that there is no indication that this is an act of terrorism…only proves how stupid the politicians are.
Do I know that the bomber is named Muhammad? No. Do I know they were inspired by religion? Of course not. Do I know they have connections to terrorist groups, as opposed to being ‘radicalized’ on the internet? Of course I do not.
I know that 8 people were stabbed in a Minnesota mall yesterday by a guy shouting “Allah.” I know that a pipe bomb went off in a garbage can in New Jersey Saturday just hours before a Marine Corps run.
And I know Bill De Blasio is an idiot.
UPDATE: New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio says there’s “no credible and specific threat” to the city in the wake of the explosion.
The same could have been said of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, December 8th, 1941.
