Troublesome racists and Islamic jihadists are different animals, although both have a supremacist world view.
Political Islam is advancing, piling up victims globally, and is an indubitable threat to Western democracy, with a massive history of bloody state conquest.
Racists, on the other hand, victimize and devalue human beings based on their race, and seek social dominion, sometimes political. The history of Nazism (which resonated with Muslims), colonialism and black slavery (which was aided and abetted by Muslims) are examples of racism expressed in political action. But Western nations have long evolved into bastions of human rights, with written constitutions and immigration policies that ironically now threaten their homeland security and democratic institutions.
It is counterintuitive to play into the hands of Islamic supporters of the Sharia, the worst enemies of our freedoms, who will use incidents of racism to gain ground by manipulating political correctness and the word “Islamophobia.”
Jihadists are well-versed in usurping polities in the midst of anarchy and take over, as was seen in Egypt during the Arab Spring uprising, followed by the Muslim Brotherhood takeover.
In fact, our jihadist enemies (especially those who operate by stealth) were manipulating race and diversity outreach programs long before the emergence of the Islamic State and manufacturing lies about Islamophobia while anti-Semitic hate crimes were three times a bigger problem. Yet Western leaders have so far avoided dealing with the real problem of Jew-hatred, even as they further the Islamophobia deception. It is precisely because of the leftist alliance with jihadists (and politically correct cowards) that the European explosion of migrant crimes was enabled; and jihadists continue to expand their base in Europe and globally.
Failed Western authorities have betrayed the Western populace that trusted them, and now, racists have been brought by those same leftists into the fray: “white males who are angry and who aren’t now afraid to show that anger. That fear of loss of control and loss of privilege is what’s inspiring this vitriol and this hate.”
As usual, those who call out the global war on terror for what it is — a zealously fought religious war of conquest — will undoubtedly be blamed by leftist ideologues for the actions of white supremacists, in order to shift attention away from the magnitude of the jihadist threat.
The powerful bogeymen behind such manipulative charges of racism are stealth and violent jihadists, with their goals of Sharia dominance. Their water carriers are leftist dhimmi power-brokers and their gutless cronies; those who are the manipulated and betrayed are the people.
And let’s not forget the likes of Louis Farrakhan, who seeks out any opportunity to cry racism, in trying to legitimize his own racist hatred toward whites for past wrongs and advance his Nation of Islam.
These fires of a burgeoning race war need to be systematically put out, but not at the expense of directly confronting the jihadist incursion on our soil.
“GenForward poll: Young Americans worry over extremist threat,” Breitbart, August 8, 2016:
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The threat of violence by people inspired by foreign extremists invokes fear in a majority of young Americans across racial groups. But for young people of color, particularly African-Americans, that fear is matched or surpassed by worries about violence from white extremists.
A GenForward poll of Americans age 18-30 shows widespread anxiety among young people about attacks from both inside and outside the United States.
Sixty-two percent of young African-Americans and 55 percent of Hispanics surveyed said they were very concerned about the threat of violence committed by white extremists, compared to one-third of whites and 41 percent of Asian-Americans.
GenForward is a survey by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The poll is designed to pay special attention to the voices of young adults of color, highlighting how race and ethnicity shape the opinions of a new generation.
Gregg Higgins, 27, was one of the whites who said he was very worried about violence by extremists in his own race. In fact, he said he was more concerned about “the homegrown white extremists” than the threat of violence from people outside the United States or people inspired by foreign extremists.
A social worker in Pittsburgh, Higgins said the growing political tension during the current election cycle has “shown a really ugly part of our past coming through and being more heard.” He described it as “white males who are angry and who aren’t now afraid to show that anger.”
“That fear of loss of control and loss of privilege is what’s inspiring this vitriol and this hate,” Higgins said.
Worry about attacks from people currently living in the U.S. who are motivated by foreign extremists spreads more evenly across racial groups, with at least half of whites, blacks, Asians and Hispanics describing themselves as very concerned about that threat.
Violence committed by people from outside the country also caused unease, especially among Hispanic young adults. Fifty-six percent of Hispanics polled said they were very concerned, compared to 49 percent of African-Americans, 40 percent of Asian-Americans and 41 percent of whites.
The angst comes after a spate of mass shootings. Nine black people were shot and killed last year at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, by a white man who officials say talked of starting a race war. In June, a gunman born in the U.S. to Afghan immigrants opened fire in a crowded gay dance club in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. An autopsy report identified him as a white male.
Last month, five police officers in Dallas were killed by a black gunman during a protest against police shootings of black men, and three law enforcement officers in Baton Rouge were shot and killed by a black man who authorities said appeared to be targeting people wearing a badge.
Darsi Vazquez, a 25-year-old Hispanic college student from Huntsville, Alabama, described herself as very concerned about the threat of violence from foreign and domestic extremists alike, but she thinks the fear is exacerbated by news coverage of mass shootings around the country and the types of overt racism that appear in social media.
