The left are desperate for a terrorist act to be carried out by a white individual so that they can shout from the rooftops about terrorism having no race and no religion. This is simply to deflect attention away from the main terrorist threat today which comes from the presence of Islam in the West and from Muslims killing people in the name of Islamic scripture.
Of course any individual of any race or religion can pull a trigger or set off a bomb, I don’t think anybody has ever suggested any different. What people have done however, is to point out the glaringly obvious connection between the presence of Islam in the West and the disproportionate number of terrorist attacks carried out by Muslims. Pointing out that a white person is capable of or has carried out an act of terrorism does not negate that fact.
Terrorism is defined as an act of violence carried out to achieve political or ideological aims, and carrying out terrorist acts in the name of Islam fits that definition. Those on the left are desperate to separate terrorism and Islam because it doesn’t fit their multicultural diversity narrative. That’s why they suggest that terrorism has no religion and that Islam is a ‘religion of peace.’
The left don’t want to talk about left-wing terrorism, black terrorism or Islamic terrorism, but they DO want to talk about ‘white terrorism.’ They want terrorism to be something devoid of racial or religious identity unless it is a white person involved and even less do they want to talk about the majority of victims being white. The most striking thing about the releasing of the identity of the shooter, was the amount of people who simply couldn’t wait to mention that it was a white person because it is just what they wanted, an opportunity to claim that white terrorists are as common as Islamic terrorists which of course is utter nonsense.
They also contradict their own narrative on terrorism when they point out the racial identity of the killer. When a Muslim commits an act of terrorism in the name of Islam the left go on the attack calling people racists and defend Islam for merely pointing out the obvious. If a black person shoots police officers dead or walks into a church and shoots people dead then they go silent. When a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporter shoots multiple Republicans there is not a murmur of condemnation, but when a white man is the perpetrator then there they are screaming about the racial identity of the individual. It couldn’t be anymore nauseatingly hypocritical.
Another thing the left have failed to mention, is that this white individual had an Asian girlfriend so he was hardly a ‘white supremacist neo-Nazi’ as the left would love to portray him. He appears to have been a fully fledged member of the ‘diversity is our strength’ brigade and was more than likely a Democrat anti-Trump kind of person. You can’t expect the left to let inconvenient facts get in the way of an opportunity to demonize whitey however. Anybody would think that his racial identity had something to with the crime, yet he was in a biracial relationship, and yet still they point to him being white as if it him being white was his motivation. The difference between Islamic terrorism and something like this, is that Islamic terrorism is motivated by the Qur’an.
After pointing out the inconsistencies in the argument of the left in relation to this, we must condemn the mass murder of innocent people and we would do that whoever the perpetrators were and whoever the victims were. Killing defenceless people in the name of politics or religion is the epitome of cowardess and we must all stand against it. That doesn’t mean we should ignore the threat that Islam poses and nor does it mean that we should be so foolish as to not understand the differing motivations for such acts.
May those who perished in Las Vegas Rest in Peace.
