Homegrown, White Terrorism Is the Bigger, Ignored and Real (?) Terror Problem

But guess which type of terrorism gets 1,000x more attention?
WASHINGTON — In the 14 years since Al Qaeda carried out attacks on New York and the Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States, explaining their motives in online manifestoes or social media rants.
But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise. Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, including the recent mass killing in Charleston, S.C., compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.
The slaying of nine African-Americans in a Charleston church last week, with an avowed white supremacist charged with their murders, was a particularly savage case.
But it is only the latest in a string of lethal attacks by people espousing racial hatred, hostility to government and theories such as those of the “sovereign citizen” movement, which denies the legitimacy of most statutory law. The assaults have taken the lives of police officers, members of racial or religious minorities and random civilians.
Non-Muslim extremists have carried out 19 such attacks since Sept. 11, according to the latest count, compiled by David Sterman, a New America program associate, and overseen by Peter Bergen, a terrorism expert. By comparison, seven lethal attacks by Islamic militants have taken place in the same period.
If such numbers are new to the public, they are familiar to police officers. A survey to be published this week asked 382 police and sheriff’s departments nationwide to rank the three biggest threats from violent extremism in their jurisdiction. About 74 percent listed antigovernment violence, while 39 percent listed “Al Qaeda-inspired” violence, according to the researchers, Charles Kurzman of the University of North Carolina and David Schanzer of Duke University.

Now, of course, most Islamic terrorism cases in the US were rigged jobs-- the FBI has been busy creating plots that they can uncover and prosecute some patsies for, and of course, 9/11 was a massive hoax.

Certainly, some cases of angry white terrorism also appear to be inside job hoaxes, such as the Oklahoma City bombing. But it's pretty clear that angry white racist heavily armed conservatives are a real thing, and I don't think there's any evidence that the Charleston shooting was a hoax or that is wasn't perpetrated by a fucked up racist kid. Just like there are some real fanatic Islamic terrorists who want to kill other people for not being Muslim or Muslim enough. But these people do not represent a real threat to America.

The obvious reason why Islamic terrorism gets so much more attention is that Islamic terrorism allows us to use our mighty and expensive military to attack other countries, which we really can't do to white Americans.

Islamic terrorism is also a very useful scary foreign boogieman to stoke fear for political purposes, in white American taxpayers. Islamic terrorism also helps justify our mighty mighty spy machine and related intelligence agencies, which are all very expensive.

A deeper and perhaps more evil reason why white supremacist extremists are ignored by the authorities, such as the FBI, is that they represent 1) a counter-balance to (scary) black power in the US, 2) the opportunity to unleash a race war if manipulated properly.

Then you must not be looking too closely.

What I meant was that I think the shootings were real and that Roof did them.

Roof was certainly controlled in some way, and it's amazing how little we've heard about the associates he must have had. They are covering this up well.

The idea that Roof was really wearing a jacket with an Obama patch is just idiotic and VT disinfo.
