Ken Livingstone Blames America for Boston Bombing

Ken Livingstone has gone on Iranian State TV to blame the evil Americans for terrorists blowing up Boston:

“Very often, people get incredibly angry about injustices that they see. They would have been reading about the torture at Guantanamo Bay, at Baghram airbase. They would have read stuff about how, I think it is 54 different countries secretly collaborated with America for this rendition — people being snatched off streets taken to be tortured, because the Bush regime believed that they were all potential terrorists.

There was such ignorance in the Bush White House about Islam and about the history of so many disputes that exist in the Middle East. People get angry — they lash out. It’s the whole squalid intervention that has disfigured the record of the Western democracies. I think this fuels the anger of the young men, who — as we saw in Boston — went out, and, out of anger and demand for revenge, claimed lives in the West.”

Odd that he was a little more cautious with his words when it was London hit by Islamists. Here is what he really thinks.

    If people hate America so much why do they go and live there?

      If Brits go and live in France and then decide they don’t like the toilets there is that a good enough excuse to bomb the Eiffel Tower?

          Islam, the so called religion of peace. Actually, the complete phrase is, there will be no peace until everyone submits to Islam.

          Islam translates as submit or submission.

          But the elites are using Islam as a useful tool. On the one hand they flood countries like Britain with Muslims that then causes internal conflicts and serves as a distraction, and on the other they use Islamic terrorism as a tool to invade other countries to install private central banks and tie up lucrative oil deals.

            And they also want to export their loony ideals of socialism as happened under the last Labour government in Iraq and Afghanistan.

            No, 50% of Labour’s votes come from ethnic minorities, most of the Mulsims.

            Basically Labour will do anything to keep them happy, even commit treason.

            Call me a lefty, but I cannot see any problem with what he said.

            When something senseless happens, you try to piece together the reasons for why it happened.

            Is there an alternative reason for the bombings?
            I know some conspiracists are saying it was a false flag action.

          • Pablo the Scot says:

            There is always someone else to blame for the shit you live in.
            By 1300AD Islam led the world in every possible way. Education, health, wealth, power, science; there was no area of human endeavour where they were not ahead (at least as far ahead as you could by in the 14th Century).
            In the early 20th Century, however, they were so far behind you could believe they came from a different planet. What did Islam intellectuals do? They started blaming the West for the backwardness and have done so ever since. The reason why they do not rule the world anymore is because the West did something to them.
            No mention of the clerics ruling them, of fundamentalists destroying progress, of men of small minds pulling down the people of intellect trying to improve their condition. At heart, their core belief is that life should return to the simplicity of life when Mohammed was alive; some of them even try and impose that on all the others.
            The reason they blow up bits of the West is because they are angry because their culture has failed but they cannot blame themselves, so they blame, and punish, us instead.

        Our Ken works for the Iranian front -Press TV. That is: he takes money from the extremist Islamist thugocracy. Just like Gee Gee.

        Iran also pays for this sort of thing:

      Motives are conjecture. Feeling angry and disenfranchised, as we all feel at times, even in our own country, is not a reason/motive to kill and maim people. Feeling angry and disenfranchised, plus being mentally ill will create the recipe for wanting to harm innocent people, especially if you throw indoctrination into the mix.

    UKIP ……Ha ! Ha ! Ha !

    A UKIP candidate has been suspended from standing in elections for Somerset County Council after photos appeared on his Facebook account showing him making a Nazi-style salute.

    Alex Wood, 22, said the picture was taken out of context and associated comments were not written by him.

    Mr Wood said he had informed the police “some days ago” and said he believed his account had been “hijacked”.

    UKIP said his candidacy “was suspended pending the police investigation”.

    But by Ken’s argument, yesterday’s bombing in Peshawar where six people were killed and 38 wounded was also America’s fault.

    And the 32 who died at Karbala on 3rd January.

    And the 126 at the market at Quetta a week later.

    And the 55 at Kirkuk in the following week.

    And the 64 at Akashat last month.

    And the 70 other similar multiple bombings that have occurred this year alone in which thousands more lives have been lost.

        Indeed.

        But the Iraq question is a difficult one, I have to admit, even for me. I was in favour of severely restraining Saddam as he was growing into a megalomaniac. He could easily have gone the way of Hitler. We suffered much more than we needed in WW2 because we let Hitler get on with it.

        I saw all the developments, from the overthrow of the Shah of Persia, as a development towards monumental instability in the region. One had a strongman bulwark against Islamic politics versus a fundamentalist religious zealot. Both were awful. There were those who said they keep a balance of power in a similar, but smaller, scale than the US and USSR did in the cold war. But we learned from that episode that, rather than one side prevailing, the other actually fails eventually.

        Blair was a convenient poodle in the final analysis. But you are right that he lied.

Can’t be anything to do with the fact that various assorted Arabs keep threatening to exterminate a people that have lived in the region for 3000 years, long before their little tin pot nations were ever even dreamt of. Can’t be because Iraq invaded Kuwait and we had a treaty with Kuwait to provide defence. Can’t be because Saddam was a dangerous nutjob screwing his own people with a son and heir that was even worse than he was.

      One could argue that lancing the boil now whilst there are a mere 2.7million Muslims in the UK might be better than waiting 30 years by which time at current growth rates there will be more than 20million.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
