Fox News is going out of its way to argue that Anders Behring Breivik who was behind the bombing and shooting spree in Oslo is not a right-winger or Christian terrorist. Cenk Uygur breaks down a clip on the topic.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Attacks by right-wing extremist loners pose a greater threat to the security of citizens than religious terrorists who act alone. According to the British think tank for security the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) they make most of the victims, while the media and the public focus more on the threat of Islamic extremists.
And so do governments usually. As its name indicates the RUSI is linked to the British armed forces. This report was paid by establishment institutions like the European Union. But even they admit that the Islamophobic propaganda industry is wrong.
According to the RUSI that focus is not justified. The research looked at attacks by lone actors in Europe in the period 2000-2014 and concluded that far-right terrorists have killed 94 people and wounded 260. In attacks by religious terrorists who acted alone, 16 people were killed and 65 wounded. …
Here one should not forget that not by any means all ‘religious terrorists’ are Muslim terrorists. Look, eg, at Robert Lewis Dear, the far-right Christian misogynist terrorist and his massacre at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado, USA. Not even mentioning the organised anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ terrorism by the self-styled Christian self-styled Army of God.
The think tank also points out that right-wing so-called lone wolves are the most difficult ones to detect. 40 percent of the extreme right-wing terrorists were discovered by accident, while religious terrorists are often exposed by security forces after investigation.
Are violent white racists really the most difficult category to detect? Or are they detected less often because they are white, and because there may be racial profiling among police, searching more diligently for potential terrorists among brown people than among white people?
