Talking point of the day: the left's strange standard for national security seems to posit that domestic (right-wing, of course) terrorists are more dangerous than organized Islamist terrorist cells. Very strange indeed.
So we have a homegrown terrorist posing an obvious threat to national security and there's not a whiff of Janet Napolitano being aware of it, nobody in the leftwing blogosphere gives a rat's ass about it, he once did some legwork for Democrat Jon Corzine and most of the media yawns.Just imagine what the reaction would be if he once attended a tea party. We have a man posing a clear and present danger with ties to God only knows who, recruited surely by al Qaeda operatives in this country in all likelihood and this news is greeted with silence. Yet when homegrown maniacs such as a Stack or a Bedell act in vengeance they're immediately linked to the right without the slightest bit of evidence to support such wild claims. Who poses a greater threat to national security? Isolated nutjobs like Bedell and Stack or al Qaeda operatives like Sharif Mobley? The focus on Bedell and Stack by the left, unsupported by any evidence, ought to tell you volumes about their priorities.
Why the strange standard?
