From DisInfo.com and JuanCole.com, comes Mr. Cole’s brilliant list of the top ten differences in what we consumers are told about white terrorists and others.

Is this guy a scary anonymous terrorist or is he a cold hiker who doesn’t want his lips and nose to freeze and fall off? You be the judge.

 

I wont’ go into all of them here, but here are three directly from Mr. Cole’s website, verbatim:

 

“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.”

 

Now, whatever you think, you can’t deny Mr. Cole’s intelligence and powers of perception. He has points, even if

you disagree with his overall world-view. But do you?

 

What do you think of his assessment?
