Obama Insider Attempts To Link Boston Bombing To ‘Tax Day’
Media mouthpieces inject “patriot” and “tea party” talking points
April 16, 2013
Former Obama advisor David Axelrod has joined other mainstream media mouthpieces in insinuating that the horrific Boston Marathon bombing may have been linked to “tax day”.
Appearing on MSNBC this morning, Axelrod said of the term ‘terror attack’, “The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11. You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind.”
The political consultant then suggested that the president has refrained from using the term because he may believe an anti-government tax protester could have been behind the bombing, rather than a co-ordinated group of foreign terrorists.
“You use those words and it means something very specific in people’s mind. And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this — it was tax day.” Axelrod said.
“Was it someone who was pro–you know, you just don’t know.” he continued. “And so I think his attitude is, let’s not put any inference into this, let’s just make clear that we’re going to get the people responsible.”
