Probably most here have heard of the Con MP in the UK that was murdered in a knife attack. BBC reporting that the perp, a UK citizen, may have come from Somalia, so he has been tagged as part of the monolithic, global, Islamic terrorist conspiracy, just like the perp in Norway.

And, just like the case in Norway, the media is reporting on the last murder of an MP, Jo Cox, several years ago, but *not* reporting that the perp in the Cox case, like the perp in the 2011 Norwegian mass killing, was a white supremacist.

On 16 June 2016, Jo Cox, the British Labour Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Batley and Spen, died after being shot and stabbed multiple times in Birstall, West Yorkshire. In September, Thomas Alexander Mair, a 53-year-old gardener,[1] was found guilty of her murder and other offences connected to the killing. The judge concluded that Mair wanted to advance white supremacism and exclusive nationalism most associated with Nazism and its modern forms.

What is going to happen when the authorities tag every case where the perp is a Muslim as "terrorism", but stay silent about the perp's motives when he isn't a Muslim? The idea will be planted in people's minds that all political or mass murders are done by Muslim "terrorists", just like in the early 2000s, and the white people in the US who have gunned down multiple vics because they were black or Hispanic, will be forgotten.

The Republicans running for office in 2022 are probably dusting off Trump's "Muslim ban" at this moment, if not advocating for a pogrom against Muslims.

And it will all be blamed on Biden, for following through on Trump's agreement to pull out of Afghanistan.
