Immediately after black gunman Kori Ali Muhammad (a.k.a. Kori MacSun McWallace) killed three white men in Fresno, California on Tuesday (he reportedly killed another man last week), the “hate crimes expert” machine sprang to action, granting interviews and spinning facts.
This was an anti-white hate crime, they did admit. It would be difficult to do otherwise, given the killer’s digital trail of anti-white declarations, but they’ve managed to deny politically inconvenient motives many times in the past.
So this crime spree, they announced yesterday, was indeed hate, but it wasn’t terrorism.
Why wasn’t it terrorism?
The gunman worked alone, said Brian Levin, who holds the important title of director of the San Bernardino Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State.
In a sane world, it could be argued that many terrorists work alone, or work on a sliding scale of aloneness. It could also be argued that a lot of internecine crimes (black-on-black, gay-on-gay) are hate crimes. Most importantly, given the body toll, it could be argued that the vast network of criminal gangs who commit much of the bloodshed in America’s cities are, in fact, both terroristic and ethno-supremacist, just like the Ku Klux Klan, and they constitute the most prolific and only organized hate crime killing machine this country has seen in nearly a century.
But there’s no political return, or rather exactly the wrong political return, in arguing such things, so the hate crime experts pretend that they have arrived at scientific explanations that differentiate between gang violence and hate violence, and hate crimes and terrorism, and anything else to prevent people from looking at the wrong types of offenders and drawing the wrong types of conclusions about them.
Although presented as science, hate crimes analysis is pseudoscience, with made-up definitions and invented rules as ornate and disturbing as any other pseudoscientific racist rant. Hate crime activists, who answer to the title “professor” or “expert,” behave in ways that are both carelessly ghoulish and exquisitely political – an ugly combination.
When the call goes out that a hate crime has occurred, activist groups leap into action, fighting to get to the microphone first. It’s an ugly scrimmage, and lawsuits aren’t unheard of as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League and various directors of academic Centers of Hate Studies compete for attention and fundraise off the suffering of others.
