The real face of terrorism in America looks like this...almost always...... [View all]



The real face of terrorism in America looks like this...almost always. That is not a coincidence. Whiteness (not as in being a person called white, but as in, systemic/ideological whiteness) was built on terror and violence. These folks have learned the culture's lessons well...




But....But....Muslims....

But....But....Immigrants

The article below is a few years old now but it is still relevant today re terror in the US:

America’s domestic terrorists: why there’s no such thing as a “lone wolf”

If terrorism is the murder of civilians in the service of a political ideology, the United States is a nation in the grip of a wave of domestic terrorism. It cannot properly be named as such because its logic draws directly from the political consensus of the popular right. If the killers were not white American men, we would be able to call them what they are—and politicians might be obligated to come up with a response beyond “these things happen.”

These things don’t just “happen”. These things happen with escalating, terrifying frequency, and for a reason. The reason is that America is a nation descending into political chaos, unwilling to confront the violent bigotry at its heart, stoked to frenzy by politicians all too willing to feed the violence if it consolidates their own power. It is a political choice, and it demands a political response.
