Christian, White Terrorism: A Growing Problem in America

kkk

After the election on November 8, 2016, hate crimes became a more serious and frequent problem in America. Empowered by Trump’s words and actions during his vile rallies, these despicable humans now had a leader.

Trump leads Americans who harbor hatred for Muslims, African Americans, Hispanics, the LGBTQ community, and those who objectify women. Thanks to the failed mainstream media, a single group has received all of the focus regarding worldwide terrorism.

We all know about the KKK, which is recruiting new members daily. Many know about the Ayrian Brotherhood. What most Americans do not know is that for the first time in history, Christian white terrorist groups are banding together.

Television news briefly reports hate crimes, but refuses to call them acts of terrorism. Here are a few of the vile crimes committed by homegrown terrorists.

On January 20, 2017, a man walked into a mosque in Quebec and murdered six men at prayer; two more were injured. When those who suffer from Islamophobia were asked why this was not labeled an act of terrorism, the response was; “this is different.”

Should the bombing of a federal building on April 19, 1995 by Timothy McVeigh be labeled a white terrorist attack? He killed 168 innocent Americans; 19 of the victims were children. I’m sure you know my opinion.

On June 17, 2015, a young white supremacist, Dylann Roof, walked into a black church in Charleston, South Carolina and shot church members while at prayer; nine of them died. Just another act by a white Christian terrorist which was labeled as a ‘hate crime’ by journalists.

Then there was the situation on Aug. 5, 2012, in which a white supremacist named Wade Michael Page shot and killed six people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. The ignorant Page failed to know the difference between Muslims and Sikhs.

There have been 32 recorded attacks of white terrorism in America alone in recent history, but no one wants to discuss this fact. No one wants to discuss the brutal actions by our military and ‘Blackwater’ committed against men, women, and children in Afghanistan and Iraq. “Those were different.” Really? Does it have anything to do with the fact they called themselves “Christians?”

Trump also leads another large group of those who mistakenly call themselves ‘Americans;’ men and women who deny that they ever did anything wrong; never made a mistake.
