They Are Literally Caucasian. Deal With It.
So there’s some consternation and kerfuffle amongst our conservative brethren as they try to work out how to demonize the Boston bombers as ‘others’; that they are Muslims and immigrants is very easy to process but the idea of Muslim immigrants also being ‘white’ people is causing some to gag. Of course, it is the position of the Teahouse that racial classifications are absurd and to try and determine such things is like trying to hold the ocean in your hands. But if we’re going to engage in that sort of game playing, trying to do the acrobatics necessary to explain how two men who are literally caucasians are not white people requires a kind of mental flexibility I will never attain.
Apparently I’m not the only one who thinks that these killers bear more than a passing resemblance to the Colombine murderers. Ironically, the people who scream about how they love the Constitution the mostest (especially the 2nd Amendment) are the first one who want to throw it out when it seems convenient or if they’re really really mad about something. But then, the backbone of our elected officials is notoriously weak.
