Top 3 White Terrorist Attacks in America this Week
By Juan Cole | Jun. 10, 2014

Our capitalist class may be becoming an absolute danger to ordinary Americans. By promoting a doctrine of absolute right to gun ownership (which rather helps gun manufacturers) and at the same time encouraging people to hate the Federal government and resent paying taxes, they are creating a whole class of alienated far right shooters.

The American far Right, with its white supremacism, fascination with guns and explosives, profound hatred for the Federal government, poses the biggest terrorism threat in the country by far. Worse, they receive support from right wing media in the US because they hate taxes just the way the ultra-conservative media moguls doe. Although their attacks are ideological, directed at civilian victims and violent, they are seldom categorized as ‘terrorists.’ Rather what they do is “mass shootings.” In the meantime, plots hatched by Muslims in the US during the past few years appear almost always to be a form of entrapment by the FBI.

The right wing noise machine has even deflected blame from itself for whipping up anti-government sentiment by falsely alleging that most mass shooters are Democrats!

The Cliven Bundy stand-off with the Bureau of Land Management, in which Sean Hannity and other Fox luminaries strongly took Bundy’s side, brought out the crazies. At least one of the mass shootings in recent days has a connection to the Bundy incident and possibly more (Dennis Marx, like many militiamen who came to support Bundy, was a so-called ‘Sovereign Citizen.”

3. I was thinking about these sorts of attacks last evening and

it occurred to me that every so often we end up with people like these trying to start a "race war." In the past, there has been a sort of random, Messianic-complex quality to this kind of violence, as with Manson or Koresh. Some insanity wrapped up in delusions of grandeur. Lately, I am inclined to think that there is some organization under the surface that is more than a few unstable individuals surfing the same frequency. There has to be because too many of these people fancy themselves to be part of an army with some of them having actual military experience. That sort of identity demand structure and hierarchy. It also requires financing.

6. What you said,

"Lately, I am inclined to think that there is some organization under the surface that is more than a few unstable individuals surfing the same frequency.

It also requires financing."


reminds me of the Ergenekon organization in Turkey. A shadowy clandestine group operating within the "deep state", as the Turks like to call it, that commits acts of terrorism under the "strategy of tension".

It's believed Ergenekon started off as part of NATO's Gladio Program, but essentially took on a life of its own. A good many people are currently on trial in Turkey who have been accused of being members of this group.

4. Harry Reid ought to make sure those murdered cops get a huge and TV covered funeral.

 

Some might say it would politicize the sad event too much. Hell, it was a murderous political act that killed them. The nation needs to have all that forced down their empty soulless throat so that what the white supremacists and anti-government gun-loving haters really stand for. Their revolution needs to be televised. FOX needs to be held accountable for its support of this hateful movement. Bring it on!! America, this is you.

15. Other than these 2, there's only been 1 other Vegas cop killed in the line of duty

Other than these 2, there has only been 1 other Vegas cop killed in the line of duty since the advent of the modern bulletproof vest, Henry Prendis (sp?) in 2006. He got a hero's funeral. I'm sure it will be the same with these two.

11. Exactly! These jerks get a free pass when in fact they are border terrorists and

some are. I'm more concerned about domestic terrorism in the US than threats from "them" over there. We have some extremely serious issues going on in this country, but most politicians don't want to disturb the gravy train supporting them, so many turn the other way. Meanwhile, there is a cancer growing and growing in this country.

7. I would love to represent the victims families and sue Fox, NRA, Alex Jones, Hannity, Savage,

O'Reilly and all of the other RW outlets and talking heads that this punk and his punk wife listened to. This has really gotten out of hand!

8. You should do it.

If you start a Kickstarter to pay for it, you'll have a million bucks before the day is over.

10. This one didn't make much national news. Same week as NV another

anti government felon with guns shooting law enforcement.
Law enforcement is too busy patrolling the brown/black community with their bull shit stop and frisk policy looking for felons with guns, because they KNOW (sarcasm) these white men with guns are felon free law abiding citizens that just hate obama.

13. Stewart got it right the other night.


They're just after instability and chaos at this point. "You have a gun, and carry it around everywhere. You, carry another gun; shoot anyone who seems threatening."

And then they laugh and laugh and laugh, as the blood flows and nothing is ever accomplished.

14. I used to be a contributor to the SPLC.

At the time, I was following the activities of the major right wing militias, Posse Comitatus, and other assorted fascist crazies. SPLC kept on hitting me up for more and more money. I quit donating and FINALLY they called to inquire why I had stopped sending contributions. I explained that the main reason for all of this reich wing activity was because of the propagandists on Focks Nooze, people like Druggie Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity and many more hate preachers who are the "leaders" of the republikan party. I indicated that I would be a sponsor again IF SPLC start identifying these people as the major instigators of their activities. SPLC won't say anything because it may cause them to lose major right-leaning contributors.

Every racist and reich wing POS I run into here in Texas listens to all or some of those hate talkers including clowns like Alex Jones. I listen sometimes just to see how "out there" he gets and believe me, he gets WAY out there.

Until the general public, by way of the MSM, learns how these folks get stirred up by the hate talkers and conspiracy theorists, it's only going to get worse.

Be prepared. *An old Boy Scout commandment*. Learn to protect yourself. Arm yourself. Lots of these folks attack ASSUMING that most folks are unarmed and will surrender quickly.

I'm not advocating violence, but everyone needs to BE PREPARED for the worst of these folks.
