Bin Laden

If I recall correctly, bin Laden never personally highjacked a plane or killed anyone on American soil.

But we declared him our enemy anyway because of his inflammatory speeches and recruitment videos. He created an army that carried out his deeds based on his ideology and we considered him the most dangerous terrorist in the world. We even went to war to root that ideology out.

White supremacy isn’t insanity. The people who practice it are quite aware of their surroundings and reality. They aren’t undergoing a first break. They don’t have psychosis. They have personality disorders. There’s a big difference between doing something because you can’t help yourself and doing it because you want to make the world not better but more to your liking.

The latter is what makes white supremacists so much like Al Qaeda. Their targets are necessarily casualties on the path to their world. The fact that the dead had lives of their own and were sentient beings is not important. It’s better to think of them as rapists or an infestation or infidels and treat them accordingly.

We have too many assault rifles in this country that makes it easy to take the infection out.

And one bin Laden wannabe who is actively recruiting at every rally.


Here’s an oldie but goodie from Dominic Crossan on the dangers of fundamentalism. This is the moment when evangelicals for Trump need to ask themselves whose side they are on:


One another note: There were a lot of crazy people in nazi Germany too but for some reason, they killed mostly Jews.

For insane murderers, they were very discriminating.
