Typical ‘America Sucks’ leftist perspective. When Rush Limbaugh predicted the media would “circle the wagons” if the bombers were muslim perhaps he should have gone wolverine and predicted they would actually BLAME US for it.
Brokaw represents Modern-Progressive Perspective. This is how the current Democrat Party followers actually think and believe. Don’t make excuses for them, or try to rationalize what they are saying – just accept it. Modern progs hate America, they hate everything about America, they hate freedom and principles of freedom. Everything bad that happens is “our fault”, and nothing is the fault of their ideological followers.
If you doubt this is actually their view, think about what they would be saying if the Boston Bomber was a Tea Party member. Do you think they would be saying it’s “our fault” for not accepting a smaller government model more in line with the foundational principle of our republic? …… Ha, not even close.

“There’s a lot that we still need to know about what motivated them, obviously,” Brokaw said, noting the Muslim faith of both bombers. “And the fact is that that Islamic rage is still out there.” (read more)
