It’s impossible to ignore a headline like this, even if you have so many emails you’d just as soon ignore it:
Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American [Salon: David Sirota]
I don’t have to tell you the pundit is a Democrat—obsession with skin color is a tradition that dates to the Civil War for that party.
Sirota, however, builds an argument that ignores key facts about who is profiled and targeted by government.
He quotes one author who wrote this piece of nonsense:
“White privilege is knowing that even if the bomber turns out to be white, no one will call for your group to be profiled as terrorists as a result, subjected to special screening or threatened with deportation.”
That author is apparently unaware that the late Osama bin Laden declared war on America and orchestrated the murder of thousands of people (with some involuntary help from the immigration agencies of the U.S. government, too busy to keep up with those annoying visas). The terrorist and many others like him characterized their mission as holy war on behalf of their god. In many terror attacks, the name of their god has been invoked.
Bear in mind it’s not just “white people” those terrorists want to kill. They’ve killed more of their own countrymen who are mostly Muslim as well.
Sirota’s column deteriorates into another run of the mill bash-the-white-male attack that is so trendy these days among the Left.
As a matter of fact, it’s trendy to bash males in general these days—white or black, you’re in the same boat. Misandry is the emotion du jour, especially for the Left.
The constant carping by Democrats about skin color, the obsession with the color of one’s skin, the ignorance about the fact that there are people representing self-styled groups based on skin color (black and white/New Black Panther Party and White Supremacists), a hijacked faith (Islamists who derailed the Muslim faith), cultures (tribal conflicts in countries like Africa) and in the U.S., the supreme conflict involving Democrat socialists and the rest of us.
There’s the real conflict no one talks about. People around the world are still fighting for rights constantly encroached by socialists, communists and tyrants in general. This has been going on since the first human walked the Earth and it isn’t likely to change. Politicians and their lackeys like Sirota know this. What we have is the eternal struggle for the freedom that any living creature intuitively seeks.
What Sirota really missed the boat on—white males have already been targeted, marginalized and stereotyped by the Left.
President Barack Obama’s administration already profiled white Rightwing conservatives, setting them aside as a targeted group and buying into hate speech from groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center.
The Dept. of Homeland Security paid for a study on terrorism hotspots and other crimes in the U.S. Top purveyors of violence weren’t racially based, and the most dangerous groups comprised extreme Leftwingers:
Extreme Right Wing: 58
Extreme Left Wing: 364
Ethno-National Separatist: 320
Single Issue: 337
