If 50 deaths in a huge place like America is indicative of a major white supremacist problem, then Islamic terrorism must be an issue on the same level as the black plague, right?
definition from the page is:
supremacy isn't inherently extremist. While they can be, and that's really what they're harping on here: violent supremacists, it's not inherently violent. I could think I'm better than my friend, that doesn't mean I want to lynch him. Also saying that they're not being labeled terrorists cus they're white is transparent as hell. Try harder cnn.Domestic Terrorism: Perpetrated by individuals and/or groups inspired by or associated with primarily U.S.-based movements that espouse extremist ideologies of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature.
Never did find out why Paddock did it. Media seemed to lose interest once it looked like he wasn't a right wing zealot.At this point, you'd need a leftist to pull off a shooting with a body count similar to Las Vegas for the MSM to even entertain the notion that the Left is capable of violence and militancy.
Before posting I did a quick search to see what the latest was and learned:You'd expect that someone, somewhere would still be looking into it and there might be something an FOIA would turn up. Dunno.
My suspicion: arms deal or some other kind of sting operation that went south and the Feds decided to sweep away the trail with an inexplicable mass shooting that would divert attention sufficiently. Supposedly there are witnesses from the shooting who basically fucking vanished.Before posting I did a quick search to see what the latest was and learned:
Over 50 killed and 500+ wounded and the MSM dropped it in months once they could rule out white supremacy/alt-right/Trump support.
- He called security to complain about loud country music before the concert
- Some random hotel worker said he had a god complex because he wanted good service
- He had reservations at other festivals
- He had a lot of ammo in his SUV
- He had 50lbs of fertilizer in his SUV
- His wife had concerns about his mental health(that she only voiced months after...)
I find it incredibly unlikely in CURRENT YEAR that we don't know why he did this shit. I find it more likely that they do know why and the feds buried it.
Terrorism: the practice of launching attacks on civilians to try to intimidate a society into surrendering.Of course not. Having such vague-yet-frightening terms at your disposal is way too convenient for everything from ramming through surveillance provisions that are the very definition of government overreach to predicating entire wars.
Not to mention like half of them already glow in the dark like they were dipped in glowstick goo.While some white supremacists are scary, dangerous assholes one thing I've learned over the years is that they hate and kill each other more than any other group. I wonder how many victims of those white supremacist killings were other white supremacists, because I wouldn't be surprised if a good chunk were.
Of course there's also the fact a good chunk of white supremacists are Richard Spencer stormfag types who are just laughable morons that don't have the balls to hurt anyone, or if they try they're too stupid to pull it off.
I have read similar complaints even in left leaning publications that talk about news bias. They moved CNN from "neutral" to "left leaning" partially because of their habit of mixing news coverage with opinion and not clearly labeling it as such. So if even pretty left biased people are noticing, it must be pretty bad.Try harder cnn.
Final note: The page doesn't say op-ed, editorial, or opinion anywhere. This is a real story that they're trying to pass off...
