    Although killer cops aren't considered to be terrorists, here's a good example of the media's bias:

    Another one - Jerry Drake Varnell.

    Yet to see him described as a terrorist.

    Headlines say "FBI arrest man", "Bank explosion plot foiled", "Man charged in anti-government plot"...

    Some news outlets discussing his mental state...

    I mean the guy is literally trying to copy Timothy McVeigh, but no, not 'terrorist' enough.

    The term has been politically subjective. I don't even bother associating anyone who commits 'terrorism' with evil or bad attributes unless the motive can be clarified properly through unbiased channels of information.

    good post; the media has been very unfair in this regard.

    Not a Terrorist:

    I fail to see why folks are surprised / shocked at this anymore?

    The word terrorist has become synonymous with Muslim perpetrators. If it's a white guy, he's a lone wolf. And not so lone when there is an Asian accomplice as well heh; and she ain't being called a terrorist either.

    If either one of these people were Muslim you can just imagine.

    In fact, there are stories cropping up saying that he is a convert to Islam, etc. etc.

    Unless it's a gas explosion or some sort of accident, a bill of 50+ deaths is more than enough to label this guy and his Asian accomplice as terrorists.

    The Islamophobia of Terrorism

    Victims hid under dead bodies, attackers ambushed ambulances, and over 305 people were killed. Nearly forty gunmen unleashed a vicious attack upon the al-Rawda mosque, utilizing multiple bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, and strategic ambush locations against first responders. The victims were Muslims, coming to the mosque for their holy day of worship on Friday.

    Although such horrific facts should rock headline news for weeks, terrorist attacks where Muslims are the primary victims are underreported. The opposite holds true. Terrorist attacks where alleged Muslims are the perpetrators and the victims non-Muslims overshadow news cycles for days, even weeks. As noted by a study covered by the Washington Post, attacks by those who claim to be Muslim receive 449% more coverage than anyone else.

    Attacks by non-Muslim attackers receive less coverage and are not usually categorized as religious terrorism. For example, the attack on a synagogue in Kansas by a KKK member, the attack on Planned Parenthood in Colorado, and the attack on the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin were not categorized as religious terrorism. Although there were religious underpinnings from the perpetrators of these attacks, they were not defined by their religious identity but by their mental issues.

    For instance, Robert Dear, the 2015 Planned Parenthood attacker in Colorado wrote in an internet forum, “Turn to JESUS or burn in hell [...] WAKE UP SINNERS U CANT SAVE YOURSELF U WILL DIE AN WORMS SHALL EAT YOUR FLESH, NOW YOUR SOUL IS GOING SOMEWHERE.” Such a vile statement would have been disseminated widely had Robert Dear been a Muslim. Yet his Christian identity shielded him, and instead his identity was categorized by his mental issues.

    The reality is that anyone who decides to commit murder, whether or not it be in the name of religion, has mental issues. This is no different for those who commit murder in the name of Islam. At its very essence, Islam literally means “peace” and “submission to God.” The Qur’an instructs Muslims to protect the houses of worship and specifically mentions churches and synagogues. (22:41)

    The Prophet Muhammad himself encouraged interfaith dialogue and peace. This can be seen from the incident when a Christian priest had met Prophet Muhammad in a mosque. The time for prayer came for the priest, and instead of being turned out, Prophet Muhammad encouraged the Priest to conduct his worship in the mosque because it too is a house of God. These are the teachings of Islam, teachings that clearly reveal that “Muslims” who commit an onslaught of violence on worshippers in another mosque starkly contrast Islam’s teachings.

    Yet, it has been merely a week since 305 people were killed in a Mosque that this atrocity has been forgotten. The past of the attackers are not headline pieces; their motives and influence towards terrorism are not magazine stories. Rather, these victims have been forgotten. Instead of being the perpetrators that they are often portrayed to be, Muslims are the victims here. Muslims, like any other religion, are susceptible to the violence of terrorists. Muslims are victims of many terrorist attacks. And “Muslim” terrorists, like any other terrorists, are defined by their deranged lack of humanity, not by the teachings of the religion they allegedly adhere to.

    Indeed this victimization is further exacerbated when Muslims are targeted as the terrorists. Unfounded retweets by President Trump against Muslims and news agencies that cloak the nature of terrorist attacks create a false narrative about Muslims. The true narrative of Islam and Muslims can be seen by the True Islam nationwide campaign that addresses this ignorance against Islam by spreading knowledge of its true teachings. It is through this knowledge of Islam that alleged Muslim terrorists can be categorized as the terrorists they are, and the Muslim victims of such attacks can receive the justice they deserve.

    Pretty sure few here would disagree with: "Although such horrific facts should rock headline news for weeks, terrorist attacks where Muslims are the primary victims are underreported. The opposite holds true. Terrorist attacks where alleged Muslims are the perpetrators and the victims non-Muslims overshadow news cycles for days, even weeks."

    ^ It's a good thing he's alive. We will be able to see in court if he's actually mentally deranged or just a cold hearted killer.

    Terror attacks by Muslims receive 357% more press attention, study finds

    Research by the University of Alabama shows attacks by Muslims receive an average of 105 headlines, others just 15

    Terrorist attacks committed by Muslim extremists receive 357% more US press coverage than those committed by non-Muslims, according to new research from the University of Alabama. The researchers controlled for factors like target type, number of fatalities, and whether or not the perpetrators were arrested before reaching their final statistic.

    Terrorist attacks committed by non-Muslims (or where the religion was unknown) received an average of 15 headlines, while those committed by Muslim extremists received 105 headlines.

    The findings, which are illustrated below, were based on all terrorist attacks in the US between 2006 and 2015 according to the Global Terrorism Database. The disparity in media coverage is particularly out of sync with the reality given that white and rightwing terrorists carried out nearly as many terrorist attacks as Muslim extremists between 2008 and 2016.

    Not all headlines have the same audience, though. Lead researcher Erin Kearns explained: “We broke it down by the two different types of sources and we found that the over-coverage is much bigger among national news sources than local papers.”

    A new Guardian documentary, White Fright, follows one case of an attack plotted by a non-Muslim. In 2015, Robert Doggart was convicted for planning an attack on Islamberg, a small community in New York. Doggart’s plan was described as “terroristic” by a US attorney.

    The study is forthcoming in Justice Quarterly. A previous paper which looked only at the period 2011 to 2015 is available here.
