Won’t it be wonderful if the Boston Marathon bomber turns out to be not a Muslim with a Middle Eastern background, as is highly probable, or a leftist like Obama’s mentor Bill Ayers, but a white guy who doesn’t like Big Government, like the exception who proves the rule Timothy McVeigh. The delusional kooks comprising the liberal media sure think so. Put on a hazmat suit; we’re going into Salon to listen to barking moonbat David Sirota:
[White male] 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.
Maybe if I type slowly enough, even David Sirota will be able to follow. Islam is a systemic threat, as it has been for centuries. 9/11 was not an isolated incident committed by lone wolves. Since 9/11, there have been over 20,000 documented Islamic terror attacks around the world.
If there is one rule that has no exceptions, it is that anyone who uses the phrase white privilege with a straight face is a malignant and contemptible fool.
“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,” writes author Tim Wise.
No one except the media and the Department of Homeland Security, that is.
Sirota’s repugnant blathering continues:
…regardless of your particular party affiliation, if you care about everything from stopping war to reducing the defense budget to protecting civil liberties to passing immigration reform, you should hope the bomber was a white domestic terrorist. Why? Because only in that case will privilege work to prevent the Boston attack from potentially undermining progress on those other issues.
Progress means facilitating further terror attacks by leaving the border undefended, weakening the military, letting ever more Muslims into the country as welfare colonists, deflecting attempts to defend against terrorism by screeching about racism and “white privilege,” et cetera.
Islamic terrorism is only an opportunistic infection. The underlying disease that makes us weak and therefore a suitable target is the ideology of self-hating liberals like Sirota.
