Are white terrorists not terrorists?

This post is pertinent…excellent question.
Something to think about.

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video from the USA says about itself:

Why Isn’t There Wall-to-Wall Coverage of The Kansas Crusaders?

17 October 2016

Thom compares the media coverage of the arrest of three men in Kansas who were plotting to harm immigrants with coverage of previous events perpetrated by Muslims. Is the difference in coverage a reflection of the media’s views on race?

White Privilege Wages Jihad: Kansas ‘Militia Members’ Aren’t Considered ‘Terrorists’ Because They’re Not Muslim

The three white men planned to unleash a killing spree and to bomb a house of worship—what should we call them?

October 19, 2016

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it had arrested three white men, Curtis Allen, Gavin Wright and Patrick Stein, who as part of a militia group called the Crusaders planned to bomb a housing complex and mosque

    Very thought provoking post. White terrorists are held to a different standard than other races.

      Agreed…I see it plain as day, but so many keep their blinders on, claiming that people like these guys are just “isolated incidents” committed by “lone wolves.”
      It’s crazy.

    Donald Trump and his supporters put paid to the above notion!

      Got that right! The already-unhinged are slowly going off the deep end, and it’s painful to watch. Almost as painful as arrogant, condescending people from other countries assuming that ALL ‘mericans in the USA are responsible for the Drumpf being in politics! That would be like me claiming that ALL Canadians are responsible for “Pickton’s Piggy Palace” in Port Coquitlam, and the atrocities that happened there back in the late 90s / early 2000s…in short, patently ridiculous!

        Canadians are always to be blamed! Seriously it’s frightening to see all this poison erupt to the surface. It only takes a few bad eggs. I don’t blame Americans for the many miscreants in their country. We have plenty here to rag on! Remember, my family is originally from the States.

        Very true – in fact, both North America and South America have very similar histories, and have the same shameful attitude of, “let’s cover up the past and not talk about it…then all of the troubles of racism and whatnot will just go away!”

        There are certainly miscreants and deplorable people in every country, from what I’ve seen. Instead of pointing fingers, I’d love to see people addressing the ills in their own countries before castigating other people in other places!

        The Brexiters don’t seem to be as vocally supportive of Boris Johnson, the UK version of Drumpf, seeing as how he said that he had no intention of running the country after that vote passed…I’m still laughing at how people over there claim that racism and fear of immigrants had NOTHING to do with the way people voted. Yeah, right…and the Civil War had NOTHING to do with slavery! Ye gawds…

    Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City Bomber) is known as a “home grown” terrorist – he was white, ex-military, American, they called him a terrorist – why the hesitation with these guys? Terrorism is terrorism. So sad for our country.
