The Left Must Have a Scapegoat: Now It Will Be Tannerite

Authorities now believe that the New Jersey bombs and the Manhattan bombs were made by the same person. The New York bomb contained Tannerite, a concoction of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder used to mark shots in target shooting.

Tannerite is considered a fairly harmless product, and experts told Fox News it would take “a large amount” to create the kind of blast that happened in New York. But expect liberals in Congress to call for it to be banned. You won’t hear them calling to ban pressure cookers and knives, but those aren’t used by sport shooters.

Since the gun control-crazed Democrats can’t tie the terror attacks in New York and New Jersey to guns, and the killer in Minnesota used a knife, they’ll go after Tannerite. The Minnestota stabbings have already been tied to ISIS, which claimed the killer as theirs:

“The executor of the stabbing attacks in Minnesota yesterday was a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls to target the citizens of countries belonging to the crusader coalition,” the statement said.

It won’t be long before evidence emerges tying the two bombings to radical Islam, but Mayor Bill de Blasio refuses even to speculate.

“We’re going to be very careful and patient to get to the full truth here,” de Blasio said Sunday. “We have more work to do to be able to say what kind of motivation was behind this. Was it a political motivation? A personal motivation? What was it? We do not know that yet.”

When the evidence surfaces, they’ll claim a lone wolf, and blame Tannerite. From the company’s website:

Our KICK-ASS invention is specifically designed to be safe. TanneriteĀ® will not cause a fire, can not be initiated by any method other than a center fire rifle, and we hold a valid patent on Binary Reactive Targets. We have spent endless amounts of funds proving legality in court, proving legality in ALL 50 STATES and many years perfecting the product. We are pursuing any/all potential patent infringers aggressively.

Tannerite Sports LLC is a small business located in Pleasant Hill, Oregon. The owners and employees there, as of now, will find themselves at the center of a discussion that should rightly be about radical Islamic terror. But instead, they’ll probably have to fear for their jobs.

Liberals must have a scapegoat, and–unfortunately for Tannerite–it’s you.
