If she thinks there’s a target on white supremacists now, wait 'til she finds out how mean we were to them during WWII.

Dear MTG,

Without discussing the inherent fairness or unfairness of the scrutiny, why do you think this scrutiny should not apply to the (white supremacy) group?

ETA:

In one particularly provocative recommendation, seen by the Guardian, the review claims there has been a “double standard” approach to tackling different forms of extremism, with individuals targeted for expressing mainstream rightwing views because the definition of neo-nazism has expanded too widely

Conservatives: It’s unfair to associate the conservative movement with white supremacy!

Progressives: OK, then maybe we should work together to do something about all these white supremacist terror attacks.

Conservatives: Why are you targeting OUR side??

It’s not even a double standard anymore, more like a teseract.

I encourage everyone to read that whole article. Shawcross was almost certainly chosen for this review because of his known views on Islam (he’s not entirely sure he likes it in Europe).

Shawcross, a former head of the charity watchdog, has made controversial comments about Islam. In 2012, as a director of the neoconservative thinktank the Henry Jackson Society, he said: “Europe and Islam is one of the greatest, most terrifying problems of our future. I think all European countries have vastly, very quickly growing Islamic populations.”

The number of referrals to Prevent relating to far-right extremism exceeded those for Islamist radicalisation for the first time last year. Referrals for far-right threats from the Prevent programme to Channel, which provides more intensive intervention, had already outstripped Islamist radicalisation since 2020.

“The number of referrals to Prevent relating to far-right extremism exceeded those for Islamist radicalisation for the first time last year” but he thinks there’s too much emphasis on that and not enough on Islamic terrorist threats.

If she wants to argue for white supremacy- she needs to provide much better examples of white people.

I’m not seeing it.

It’s not just “Christian” whites that fit your description.

If (blanks) are superior, notice that the ones who espouse the superiority of (blanks) serve as a masterful counterexample showing they are anything but.
