Because it would fit with the Left’s fervent desire to stamp out “white privilege”.
If you have the stomach, the link to Sirota’s tripe is HERE.
This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings — even though most come at the hands of white dudes.
Likewise, in the context of terrorist attacks, such privilege means white non-Islamic terrorists are typically portrayed not as representative of whole groups or ideologies, but as “lone wolf” threats to be dealt with as isolated law enforcement matters. Meanwhile, non-white or developing-world terrorism suspects are often reflexively portrayed as representative of larger conspiracies, ideologies and religions that must be dealt with as systemic threats — the kind potentially requiring everything from law enforcement action to military operations to civil liberties legislation to foreign policy shifts.
……Because of these undeniable and pervasive double standards, the specific identity of the Boston Marathon bomber (or bombers) is not some minor detail – it will almost certainly dictate what kind of governmental, political and societal response we see in the coming weeks. That means regardless of your particular party affiliation, if you care about everything from stopping war to reducing the defense budget to protecting civil liberties to passing immigration reform, you should hope the bomber was a white domestic terrorist. Why? Because only in that case will privilege work to prevent the Boston attack from potentially undermining progress on those other issues.
Except that most of the victims were white Americans; the youngest was a white American male 8-year old.
His white 6-year-old sister lost a leg in the attack and his white mother suffered a brain injury.
Happy now, Sirota?
Timothy McVeigh, whom the left holds up as a poster child for “white extremism” was an agnostic, and did not have a world-wide network of support from like-minded religious zealots, like for instance, the Islamic muslim fundamentalists who want us all dead.
Sirota is in good company. The leftards in the media jumped on the ‘blame whitey’ bandwagon as soon as the bombs went off.
The entire leftwing media is a bellicose, race-baiting bag of shit. Their behavior only gets worse as time goes on.
