The Boston Herald nailed it, as did Drudge (above).
Not only was this scumbag on welfare, he and his little brother were on the way to New York City to “party” following the attack last Monday.
No doubt to spend his unearned welfare cash on strippers.
Karl Denninger ravages the left in a post today:
U.S. authorities were on their way to a mountainous region in southern Russia to interview the parents of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, as more details emerged about the brothers’ recent activities in the U.S., including word of where the deadly explosives may have been purchased and that the family relied on welfare for at least some of their time here.
The brothers hated America.
They loved, however, “transitional assistance benefits” — in other words, welfare.
That’s right folks — we paid these clowns to live while they were radicalizing themselves and declaring that America was “the great Satan” and worthy of bombing.
How’s it feel in those liberal bastions this morning? You now have hard proof that your political policies and “redistribution” factually funded these clowns while they made their plans to blow up runners at the Marathon.
Take a bow, liberals, to the fruits of your policy.
It gets better.
The elder brother bought fireworks — a lot of them too ($400 worth) — in February. That’s not exactly a time when most people shoot off fireworks, is it? Even better, he bought fireworks that are full of both lift and bursting charges which are typically black-powder compounds — exactly the sort of explosive that was identified in the bombs.
The Fibbies have said that he didn’t buy enough to make the bombs, but that’s just one sale they know of. This particular fireworks dealer scanned the guy’s driver license, but unless something has changed recently this is pretty uncommon. I’ve bought plenty of fireworks and the only thing most of the places I’ve gone to have wanted is my money. How many more fireworks stores did these two visit?
There goes the “mad bomber uses GUN SUPPLIES” argument too!
It gets even better — a majority of Bostonians apparently figured out that the cops would be happy to come by and sweep up the mess after the terrorists got done with them. See, the majority seem to have responded that they’d have preferred to have a gun during such an event.
Naw, go figure — you have a couple of madmen on the loose who have proved they’ll walk up to cops and shoot them, and the people would like to have a fighting chance at self-defense?
One by one this incident is taking the bogus arguments used for years by the lying left and demolishing them. The terrorists were not “Jesus-loving, bible-banging right-wing freaks” — they were Muslims. The terrorists were not native-born Americans, they were immigrants that we coddled and allowed to remain in the country despite one of them committing a disqualifying crime. We not only ignored the older brother’s domestic violence we funded them with welfare, literally paying them to live while they hated us and ultimately decided to try to kill us all. The guns the terrorists bought were not purchased through some “loophole” since there wasn’t one that was possible given the state’s laws on firearms, proving that a criminal doesn’t give a damn about laws whether they pertain to guns or anything else. Massachusetts has factually had a near-doubling of murders since passing its “strict” gun control, about 60 a year, while the mad bombers managed to kill four, meaning that the bombers did less damage than one month’s butcher bill from Massachusetts liberal gun-banning law, drawing a clear picture on exactly how destructive said laws have been to the life and liberty of Massachusetts residents.
Those on the left have run out of both arguments and excuses and this incident runs the flag all the way up the pole on that account.
Denninger mentions it in his piece. They welfare islamic warriors bought fireworks for the gun powder necessary to make their barbaric devices.
(NT Daily News) – Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev walked into a New Hampshire fireworks store two months before his deadly attack and asked for the “biggest and loudest” kit — then got another set for free, the Daily News has learned.
In a chilling twist, the company that sold Tamerlan the fireworks is the same one that sold Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad the firecrackers he used to build his failed car bomb.
The fireworks Tsarnaev bought contained about 3 pounds of black powder — enough, experts say, to build one of the two pressure-cooker bombs he triggered at the Boston Marathon on April 15.
Sorry, Senator Lautenberg: Your latest gun control proposals would be as impotent at stopping these jihadis as Massachusetts’ strict gun control was in blocking them from getting their hands on guns.
