Whenever a white, obviously racially motivated kid goes off and kills some black people, the knee jerk reaction by those who benefit most from white supremacy all join the chorus: “he’s crazy. He’s insane. No person in their right mind would do something like this.”
I did a quick search on this topic just now and I found the awesomest batshit crazy headline ever - “JEW MEDIA GIDDY AFTER CRAZY WHITE WEIRDO ALLEGEDLY SHOOTS AND KILLS A BUNCH OF NEGROES IN SOUTH CAROLINA CHURCH”
Real headline on a blog, I swear. Google it if you don’t believe me - I’m not going to give them the satisfaction of bonus traffic by linking. But it was so perfect in the way it crammed so many right wing whacko talking points into 19 words that I had to share it.
So - a couple of questions.
Fist, if all these white guys are “crazy” and “insane” and “delusional” and on and on, why do they all manifest their craziness by shooting blacks? And why is there such symmetry between the uniformly similar crazy behavior and the teachings of white supremacists from the Klan to the militias to the right wing media?
I just don’t see any good answers out there for white supremacists. Which may perhaps explain why the first reaction of right wingers - always - is to call the shooters crazy and delusional. I’d try very hard to change the subject if I were them too.
A final question - why does the media always let the white supremacists get away with this bullshit?
