You think I’m kidding? Loathsome asstards at Salon actually published this drooling dreck of a piece by some self-loathing, metrosexual cockgobbler named David Sirota, who vomits his sincere desire to see a white guy be responsible for the murder of three, including a young child, as well as hundreds of grave injuries.
Because you see, since white people are privileged, and therefore aren’t immediately suspected of terrorism. It’s mostly the poor, underprivileged minorities that get the blame and are “collectively slandered” whenever mass murders happen.
…privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being.
This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.
Likewise, in the context of terrorist attacks, such privilege means white non-Islamic terrorists are typically portrayed not as representative of whole groups or ideologies, but as “lone wolf” threats to be dealt with as isolated law enforcement matters. Meanwhile, non-white or developing-world terrorism suspects are often reflexively portrayed as representative of larger conspiracies, ideologies and religions that must be dealt with as systemic threats — the kind potentially requiring everything from law enforcement action to military operations to civil liberties legislation to foreign policy shifts.
There is so much FAIL here, I’m getting a headache just thinking about it!
Apparently, even though data show that more terrorist attacks have been perpetrated by non-Muslims than Muslims, Shitslurper over there is upset that we’re waging a “War on Terrorism,” because it’s, by its nature a war on Muslim terrorism.
Let’s take a look and see how many fundamentalist Muslim attacks we have seen since 2000, shall we? But instead of using a link from an obviously biased source like ThinkProgress used by Shitslurper, let’s use… oh… Wikipedia.

- 2012 February 17: An illegal immigrant from Morocco was arrested near the Capitol after an undercover investigation into an alleged plot to carry out a suicide attack on the national landmark that houses Congress. Amine el-Khalifi, 29, was picked up while carrying an inoperable gun and a fake suicide vest provided to him by undercover FBI agents posing as al-Qaeda associates.
These are the attacks of which we are aware. I’m fairly sure there are more the general population knows nothing about. But let’s go with 38.
In comparison, since 2000, the number of other attacks is as follows:
KKK violence – 0
White Supremacy – 1 (The Spokane bombing attempt)
Christian Extremism – 1 (the guy who killed abortion provider George Tiller in 2009)
Black militancy – 1 (the nuts who planned the Sears Tower plot)
Jewish militancy – 1 (the JDL plot to blow up the King Fahd Mosque)
The only lunatics who rival the Muslims in the number of attacks are the eco-terrorist assholes, who are responsible for millions of dollars worth of property damage, but generally stick to vandalism and break-ins instead of targeting innocent Americans. But while I don’t discount them here, they’re a different animal altogether (no pun intended).
But according to this emasculated fuck, poor Muslims are constantly suspected in bombings such as this latest one in Boston, and IT’S JUST NOT FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIR!!!
And that’s why he hopes that a white American committed this crime. Because the perpetrator matters.
The death of a child doesn’t matter.
The deaths of two others don’t matter.
Loss of limbs, blood, gore and agony don’t matter.
What matters is that the poor Muslims will get the blame!
This is proof positive that the assholes at Salon who published this written diarrhea and its author are heartless, repugnant, pernicious shitstains.
In case you didn’t know.
