Top Ten differences between White Terrorists and Others


Top Ten differences between White Terrorists and Others

 by Juan Cole

1. White terrorists are called “gunmen.” What does that even mean? A person with a gun? Wouldn’t that be, like, everyone in the US? Other terrorists are called, like, “terrorists.”

2. White terrorists are “troubled loners.” Other terrorists are always suspected of being part of a global plot, even when they are obviously troubled loners.

3. Doing a study on the danger of white terrorists at the Department of Homeland Security will get you sidelined by angry white Congressmen. Doing studies on other kinds of terrorists is a guaranteed promotion.

4. The family of a white terrorist is interviewed, weeping as they wonder where he went wrong. The families of other terrorists are almost never interviewed.

5. White terrorists are part of a “fringe.” Other terrorists are apparently mainstream.

6. White terrorists are random events, like tornadoes. Other terrorists are long-running conspiracies.

7. White terrorists are never called “white.” But other terrorists are given ethnic affiliations.

8. Nobody thinks white terrorists are typical of white people. But other terrorists are considered paragons of their societies.

9. White terrorists are alcoholics, addicts or mentally ill. Other terrorists are apparently clean-living and perfectly sane.

10. There is nothing you can do about white terrorists. Gun control won’t stop them. No policy you could make, no government program, could possibly have an impact on them. But hundreds of billions of dollars must be spent on police and on the Department of Defense, and on TSA, which must virtually strip search 60 million people a year, to deal with other terrorists.

  • How can you guys be so naiive? The Muslims did 911? Really. Is that why the USA will never allow us to take 911 to court or allow us to even doubt we did 911. In March of 2004 in front of the 911 commission Sandy Burger testified that the very same week George Bush sat on the presidential chair he asked how was the Al Qaeda strategy coming along and since the answer was negative Sandy Burger said that nothing could be done until 911. They needed 911, 911 was a must, it was precise and they got it. They did it.

    Maybe I usurped someone’s handle? I’m not anti Islam, I’ve spent time in Egypt and Nigeria playing in bands with moslems. Again, one of my concerns is the SPLC’s long history of equating or lumping in constitutionalists, anti UN/Agenda 21/Globalist/NWO & pro 2nd amendment folks in with Lunatics, racists, and fascists. Inn Fidel is Castro’s island resort on the Isle of Pines.

    @Inn Fidel says: “I agree with your post, except the cross being equated with White supremacy”

    No one here has equated Christianity and its symbol (the cross) with the terrorism activities of white supremacists, such as the KKK, Anders Behring and their ilks. But its a fact that they do display the Christian cross as their symbol. But unlike you anti-Muslim Islamophobes who constantly equates Islam, the Muslim community and their symbols with every extremist act that a Muslim may do, we do not equate their despicable acts with Christianity or the Christian community at large, just because they happen to carry the same name of that specific community, or displays its most sacred symbol when they’re on their hate rampage. And unlike you, we can distinguished between the true Christianity and their terrorist actions, whereas you don’t for Islam.

    But whats new anyway, anti-Muslim Islamophobes tend to jump the gun, so I’m sure you missed the sarcasm behind my reply to Laila, who somehow claimed there is a difference between a Muslim extremist that justify his action “in the name of their religion” which (according to her) proves his “devout member” of Islam. And the Christian extremists with white supremacy tendencies such as the KKK and Anders Behring that regardless of their proud identification with Christianity and symbol (the cross) “does not appear” to be devout members of Christianity, nor justify their actions in name of Christianity.

    “I have Catholic friends in Africa and S. america who wear/display the cross, and they’re not white.”

    And, so what? isn’t that precisely what anti-Muslim Islamophobes tend to do? Though they know well that Islam carries every race, white, black, brown, yellow, and nationalities – Latinos, Chinese, Middle-Easterns, Europeans, Americans, Africans ect…, but that somehow you guys decided its acceptable that Islam, and the entire, global Muslim community regardless of their creed and color should answer, and pay, for the price of a supposed 19 Middle-Easterners blowing 2 buildings in New York on “911”?

    “This is why I’m on the site- I’m concerned about the equating of conservative/christian with Neonazi white supremist lunatics.”

    Again, isn’t that exactly what you do in most of your posts here? equating Islam/Muslims for the lunatic actions of some ? How come you condemn others what you do yourself to Islam/Muslims ? BTW, what does “Inn Fidel” suppose to represent?

    I spent a month in Egypt in 2002, 6 months after 9/11. All the folks there wanted was an end to terrorism and war so they could grow food and maybe get a totally killer job working with the tourism industry.

    In at least one case, it was the same person changing his name.
