This short satirical piece (just 300 words) might be interesting and/or a amusing to URPE members.
Larry Klayman, a lawyer w/ a long list of right wing credentials, declared last week that the explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas — which killed at 14 — was likely an act of “Muslim Terror.”  After encountering Mr. Klayman’s claim — along w/ some anti-Muslim commentary following the Boston Marathon, and the speculation that the Boston bomber was a “dark skinned” man — I wrote up this alternative story, which highlights the role of light skinned” free market extremists.  

The piece appears on Counterpunch and Buzzfeed.  Please pass the link along!
