While so many others have been sending their thoughts and prayers to those affected by the Boston Marathon Massacre Monday, filmmaker Michael Moore instead decided to place the blame for the bombings on his favorite target – the Tea Party.
This is despite the fact that local officials and the FBI still aren’t sure who was behind the Boston bombings.
Moore tweeted the following around 5:40pm Eastern time:
2+2 =— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) April 15, 2013
Shortly afterwards, he sent this tweet:
Tax Day. Patriots Day.— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) April 15, 2013
The filmmaker was not giving us a math lesson, but rather insinuating to his 1.5 million followers that they should put two and two together to figure out who was behind the bombings. According to the liberal documentarian, having Tax Day and Patriot’s Day both falling on April 15 is motive enough for the Tea Party to detonate two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Who needs due process of the law when you can just use Moore’s logic?
Sadly, Moore wasn’t alone in his assumptions. MSNBC host Chris Matthews pinned the blame for the bombings on right-wing extremists.
It just goes to show that while tragedies often bring out the best in people, some continue to turn it into a publicity stunt for themselves instead.
