If Accusing All Muslims Is Wrong, Why Is Accusing All White People Right?

After Charlottesville, Bret Stephens wrote a New York Times column challenging lefties for giving Islamists a pass in the same way that they would never tolerate if they were Neo-Nazis.

Regarding last week’s events in Charlottesville, Va., consider the following propositions:

(1) James Alex Fields Jr., the young man who on Saturday, police say, rammed his Dodge Challenger into a crowd in Charlottesville, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others, was not a “domestic terrorist.”

(2) He was a fatherless, troubled individual who likely experienced economic disenfranchisement as a child of Kentucky and was moved to violence for motives about which we can only guess.

(3) The marchers who gathered in Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee are not necessarily “alt-right.” After all, the alt-right movement encompasses a diverse spectrum of opinion, only some of it racist, and should not be tarred by the rhetoric or actions of a few.

(4) White people should feel no sense of responsibility because a tiny handful of so-called white “nationalists” and “supremacists” falsely claim to speak in their name.

(5) The blame for the events in Charlottesville does not lie with any particular group. Both sides bear their share of guilt and should have shown greater restraint.

(6) President Donald Trump was right last Saturday to avoid stigmatizing any particular group in his remarks condemning violence and hatred. Doing so would unnecessarily elevate the profile of the angry losers and occasionally violent extremists who defame Americans and give them the PR victory they were seeking all along.

OK, now here’s hoping you’re revolted by each of the six preceding points. Because, if you are, then maybe we can at last rethink the policy of euphemism, obfuscation, denial and semantic yoga that typified the Obama administration’s discussions of another form of terrorism.

That would be Islamist terrorism…

Predictably the responses on the left were furious. The left hates two things above all else.

1. Being mocked

2. Being called out for its hypocrisy

And Bret Stephens had managed to do both in their own media safe space. Worse still, he had raised a few good questions. 3, 4 and 6 are particular staples of the left’s approach to Islamic terrorism.
