Differences Between White Terrorists and Others

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?
