Tribalism & Fear Mongering In The Media Part. 194

tribalnewsAnd deference to official sources of course. Notice a Neo Nazi is not said to be part of a global movement that lurks everywhere (although they do mention his admiration of other right wing terrorists but it is as an individual, as a fan) Islamic fundamentalists always have their wider ambitions emphasised. Nazis have to date killed many millions of people, you may have read about it in a newspaper or history book. They have cells in every country, this is a British cell at play-

A little girl grins with glee as she holds a golly over a fire . . . while a jeering BNP politician finds the doll guilty of BEING BLACK during a vile mock trial and execution. The baying crowd cheers when the toy – dubbed Winston – is condemned and dropped on to the flames to “die”. Goading on the assembled adults and kids, the politician, a local council candidate, yells out these chilling words: “Let’s get a real one . . . in the town we’ll find one or two.”

But they are the extreme end of the white tribe so we do not treat them the same way as terrorists of the ‘other’ after all it has no role in justifying current military adventures. And as we have killed over a million Muslims and tortured unknown numbers to death in recent years, perhaps that’s not helping the situation, d’ya think?

    I don’t know about Europe, but here in the good ol’ USA, the far right is using a “lone wolf” strategy. The go for massive incitement, and then hope that a lone loony among their faithful will act out. This could end up being more dangerous than traditional terrorist networks because there’s no real way to trace it, especially in a country like our where anybody can by guns at the drop of a hat.

    Yes, it’s a clever hands off deniability rich method of getting your ideological enemies killed, if we acknowledge culture is the context of ‘lone gumnen’ then really it is a conspiracy made up of Fox, GOP, Megachurches etc. In the UK the rise of the BNP does help that dynamic and ooh look Murdoch has media here too. The difference is striking with a Muslim terrorist they make much of wider context but with right wingers, it’s always a lone nut. So we can see what they are hiding and protecting right there.
