Another “White Man With a Grudge” Practicing Terrorism. Not. February 16, 2015

There was a thoroughly stupid article in The Nation last week. An article with an apples-and-oranges premise that it never bothered to support:

The Most Common Type of American Terrorist Is a White Man With a Weapon and a Grudge

So it is with some amusement that I read this intro to a Guardian article:

A man from Liverpool has been charged with attempting to obtain a chemical weapon, police have said. The 31-year-old was arrested following a joint raid by the north-west counter-terrorism unit (NWCTU) and Merseyside police.

Wait for it…

He was named as Mohammed Ammer Ali…

This incident isn’t “American,” but I think it underscores the pattern. When someone is practicing bona fide terrorism, putting your money on it being an Islamic extremist is a pretty safe bet.

…and another “White Man with a Grudge” practicing terrorism. Again, not:

Southfield police have arrested a 39-year-old man who allegedly stabbed two other men multiple times at a bus stop near Northland Mall in Southfield Saturday night.

Nick Loussia, Deputy Chief of Police for the Southfield Police Department, said Thomas “is Muslim, and asked the victims what religion they were” before allegedly attacking them.
