Were you ware that on the morning of May 25, 2009, a Starbucks coffee shop on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NY was bombed? Probably not; this sort of bombing isn’t particularly considered news by our MSM.
What you probably also don’t know, and would probably have to hunt to find out, is that this under-reported bombing was perpetrated by a Left-Wing terrorist who sought to emulate the violent assaults on “Corporate America” planned by a character in David Fincher’s movie, Fight Club.
From one of the few sites outside of NYC mentioning this, Newser:
A Fight Club-obsessed teen has been arrested for the bombing of a Manhattan Starbucks, the New York Daily News reports. Kyle Shaw, 17, modeled himself on the Tyler Durden character in the movie and sought to copy the film’s “Project Mayhem” attacks on corporate America, according to police. Shaw—who evidently forget that the first rule of Fight Club is not to talk about Fight Club—was busted after bragging to friends about the May bombing, said detectives.

The terrorist, Kyle Shaw, was born in America and is a young, White male. It would seem odd that the MSM chose to not make a big deal about this act of domestic terrorism since Shaw would seem to be the perfect foil for the MSM – that is until you realize that Shaw was a Leftist terrorist.
The MSM is far less than willing point out the Left-Wing terrorists, even White male ones.
Of course this is to be expected; the MSM is infotainment, not journalism and it reflects the cultural and racial biases of its viewers. They’re the ones theoretically buying what the advertisers are selling.
With the Liberals’ fomenting such class warfare and hatred of the wealthy, it’s to be expected that there would be little if any outrage over attacks against American corporation, irrespective of how violent they were.
Scott Roeder, who killed the notorious abortionist George Tiller in a targeted execution, was branded as a horrific domestic terrorist by the Liberals and the media from coast to coast. US Attorney General, Eric Holder even dispatched US Marshals to US Marshals to protect abortion mills across the nations.
Kyle Shaw, who planted a bomb on a busy Manhattan sidewalk and launched an indiscriminate attack that could have harmed or killed anyone passing by, was and is largely ignored by the Liberals, the MSM, and federal authorities.
It seems that, in the land that the Liberals and their MSM have created in the wake of America, only politically incorrect acts of violence and/or terrorism are despised.
