Terrorists using other terrorists as a reason for terrorism

Last edited Mon Mar 18, 2019, 06:30 PM - Edit history (1)

Does it ever seem that terrorists using terrorism to incite racial hatred only end up inciting terrorists on the other side and the rest of us are caught in the middle of their sick twisted ideologies and perverse mass murder sprees? I was recently struck by a FB post I saw that quoted a Breitbart story about a Nigerian killing in a Christian church most likely carried out by Boko Haram. The story was posted the same day as the New Zealand tragedy and the comment was, "And nobody will even report this" as if this ongoing war in Nigeria balances out the killing by this white supremacist in New Zealand.

So now acts of terrorism will be a tit-for-tat exchange along religious lines with the victims always being the rest of us. And the worst part is that people will justify these murderers by pointing out that the other side killed some group previously. Anyone with a brain can see where this kind of madness will lead us. The shooter in New Zealand wasn't acting ostensibly as a Christian but often white supremacists are associated with white Christians either by self-identification or by non-Christian fanatics.

1. The FBI understands that this is how it works.


Jim Cavanaugh who used to be with the FBI spoke about it on MSNBC a few days ago. He said he will not be surprised if a revenge attack occurs. He also said the live streaming of the video was meant to recruit - it was not just shock and awe. He had a name for it. Can't think of it now. But he said this is how the terror groups operate. If I can find it, I will post it. Other than Malcolm Nance, he's made the most sense since this tragedy. He knows what we are facing when it comes to White supremacy terrorrism.

2. To me, it's all related.

The terror is ALL Right Wing: Islamic or Christian Identity.

What is Boko Haram but a RW Terror organization? They want to stop education of women! That's a Conservative goal if I ever heard one.

Al Qaeda, ISIL, Boko Haram, the Taliban, the KKK etc: all RW Terror Groups.
