Re: Active/recent terrorist acts catch-all thread

To be serious, posting an obviously incorrect meme that could be checked in 5 seconds should receive an auto-ban.

Seriously, pretty humiliating. That must be what it feels like to work for Trump.

Unless some people get pleasure from being the laughing stock of the world.

For some reason I don't think IS will listen even if someone like that existed.

Re: Active/recent terrorist acts catch-all thread

seems that this paris bloke loaded his car full of guns and gas bottles, drove into a police car, knocked himself out in the impact and then his car burst into flames which roasted him dead. no police or civilians hurt

the global caliphate movement takes another triumphant stride towards world domination

Trump will be tweeting about it shortly as long as Muslims are the likely culprits

Apparently he was killed by the police/military. Would be one awful suicide vest if the bomb wasn't even capable of killing the wearer.

Maybe it was an effigy of a terrorist.

I haven't seen anything about who he was.

Re: Active/recent terrorist acts catch-all thread

Opinion piece in NYT about far-right terror, including how it's treated online and how we tend to not really react to it

Quote:
The frequency of far-right attacks is particularly significant in the United States, where white supremacist, anti-government and neo-Nazi extremists have been responsible for 73 percent of deadly terrorist attacks since Sept. 11, 2001, according to the Government Accountability Office. Also notable is that in many cases, Muslims have become the target of violence.
Quote:
Our research on far-right movements in Britain looked at people interacting with 162 British-based Facebook pages that show support for far-right ideologies. These included the Facebook pages of political parties, protest movements and news sources. Our analysis of about 7,000 users regularly engaging with these pages suggested that some 2,500 expressed support for extreme violence. (The suspect in the Finsbury Park attack did not show up in our study.) Violent sentiment was overwhelmingly aimed at Muslims, as well as immigrants and refugees.

...
A vanishingly small number of those we surveyed expressed explicit support for white supremacy or neo-Nazi ideology. Instead, these Facebook users appeared mainly motivated by patriotism, grievances over immigration and integration, and the perceived threat of Islam.

Because of a high level of public vigilance about jihadist groups, Islamist extremists are increasingly cautious in their behavior, particularly online. The intense focus on the propaganda they produce means that pages calling for violence against the West and expressing support for terrorism are swiftly taken down, and their users barred.

The increasing caution of jihadist activists is not matched by the far-right extremists we have studied.
Cliffs: people on the far right who advocate violence don't identify as white supremacists (though they basically are), they think that being "Britain first!" and wanting to kill Muslims just makes them sensible patriots, and because that kind of rhetoric is basically mainstream for the far right now, nobody's ever going to take down their Facebook pages

Not a terrorist attack apparently. They think its gang related.
