PARIS – Donald Trump was right. A special request to see whether radical Muslim terrorism can be called "radical Islamic terrorism" has overshadowed a critical issue. The struggle against extremism must start with ideas and language that is clear and unambiguous. That is why we must be absolutely frank about the fact that Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old monster in Christchurch, argued that he represents, and does what, and who represents what is white nationalist terrorism.
Tarran may have been a lonely shooter when he killed 50 people in two mosques in New Zealand on the night of the night, but he was not a "lone wolf". It was part of a much broader movement, which is as large as al Qaeda when it attacked the United States in 2001
Now, before he becomes stronger, there must be time to move against him with the same agreed international focus of attention and resources that were taught by Osama bin Laden. Now is the time for a global war with white nationalist terrorism.
But no, it is unlikely to happen. According to The Daily Beast on Friday, fewer than one of the FBI affairs is targeting white rivals.
No one can claim that the administration of George W. Bush has done that "we are going to fight them there so that we did not have to deal with them here" because they are already "here" with revenge, constantly increasing their power and presence in Western democracies. The networks of white nationalist apologists, sympathizers, supporters and intermediaries – vital for any terrorist movement – are deeply embedded in the political and social fabric. They are literally an enemy inside. And as an apologist, I must say that President Donald Trump himself is in the classroom. Trump is "a symbol of the renewed white identity and common goal," as Tarrant wrote in his manifesto.
Ability of the border wall, attempts to ban all Muslims – these measures tend to Tarrant, since Trump's base buys in them. And when it comes to feeding the basic instincts of the base in order to hold on to power, it is not at all clear how far Tramp will go.
One of the coolest moments in Congressman's testimony last month by Constable Trump, the notorious Michael Cohen came when he said: "I'm afraid that if he loses his election in 2020, there will never be a peaceful transition of power."
I was told by a very senior former US intelligence officer, he is worried that if Trump will be impeached and filmed, the result may be violence that breaks the country separately. And Trump himself loves the point in that direction, as he did in his interview with Breitbart last week.
On the fascinating side, in the middle of an innovative dialogue on the former Speaker of the Chamber of Paul Ryan, Trump said: "I have police support, support for the military, support for bikers for Trump – I have hard people, but they do not play it hard – until they will not go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. "
So, if we are to seriously think about a global war with white nationalist terrorism, we must admit that the American president is a huge obstacle.
But let's suppose that he has a radical change of heart or defeat in 2020, and the American government decides that it's time to remove those elements from the military and the police, as Trump said, who supports his very thinly disguised racist agenda-so that, let's be clear, a lot of them, even if they do not command.
" I was told by a very senior former intelligence officer of the United States that he was worried if Trump would be suspended and removed, the result could be violence that breaks the country. done? By postponing the Japanese attitudes during the Second World War, among white people, there are only a few precedents for such cleansing in US history: the withdrawal of military officers, diplomats and other officials with real or suspected sympathies of the Confederacy during the American Civil War (many of which remained on their own) and an outrageous campaign against anticipated Communists in the McCarthy era of the late 1940s and early 1950s.
Provocators like Tarrant are hoping for draconian measures that seek to cause a fire. "The civil war in the so-called" melting pot ", that is, the United States, should be the main goal in overthrowing the global structure of power and the egalitarian, individualistic, globalist culture of the West," said the manifesto. He hopes that the "conflict of the 2nd amendment" will lead to this fratricidal struggle and "ultimately balkan the United States by political, cultural and, most importantly, race lines."
When Tarrant writes in all the headlines of the "MIT OF QUESTION", he will not come up with his own lunatic theory, but the popularizing, which for many years was spread by American racists, and turned into an ideology in Europe as a resonant terror today. Mayn Kampf was in the 1920's
Vladimir Putin and his ideologists, the apostles of ethnic and linguistic nationalism, and propagandize it both openly and covertly in Western European countries in order to break down and divide their democracies.
Parties working on platforms of anti-brown or black immigrants are now major players in the policies of Britain, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Italy. We know that Tarrant recently visited Spain, Bulgaria and other countries where there are active ultra-right movements. In Hungary, where the government of Victor Orban is insanely anti-immigrant and clearly anti-Semitic, New Zealand's Sagittarius seems to feel at home.
But as the popular French diary Le Parisien was announced on Saturday morning, "49 dead in New Zealand: it all began in France …"
In 2017, Tarran came here to watch the presidential the election of Emmanuel Macron, who represents everything from globalization to higher education that Tarrant hates, and far right Marin Le Pen, who, in his opinion, was simply not racist enough for his tastes.
But the key to Tarrant's thinking and his connotations in the title of his manifesto, "The Great Replacement," addressed directly to the work of the extreme right French author Reno Kamos, who wrote that the peoples of Africa and the Muslim world would defeat and replace the European population.
According to Le Monde, the fantasy of this ominous substitution began on the basis of the notion that Jews were supposed to reduce or conquer the white population of Europe – an idea that had survived in the circles of the right wing, even after the Second World War and the Holocaust discoveries. And this is still a common pace among the Americans on the far right corner. When in 2017, the neo-Nazis went to Charlottesville, they promised that they would not be replaced by Jews.
But here, in Europe, in the 21st century, where many countries treat extreme anti-Semitism as a crime, Reno Kamus put a new turning point in this substitute tale after September 11, 2001, arguing that Muslims colonize Europe
Camilla denied any incitement to terrorism in his special way in the week. "Colonized," he wrote, referring to the white Europeans, should not follow the methods of the colonizer, that is, immigrants to Europe, taking tactics of terror. "That is, to become like him and give way to colonization."
It would be possible to drown such voices of hatred. Many European governments have been trying. But will this be enough to stop the spread of white nationalist terrorism?
At the end of the day and beginning, as difficult as the task, the war on white nationalist terrorism must be fought as a war of law enforcement and a war of ideas.
Police and prosecutors committed to democratic values should conduct investigations in white nationalist groups with the same zeal that were applied to radical Muslim terrorist organizations.
Voters in Western countries should understand that fellow white nationalist terrorism is not acceptable to the participants in modern democracies, and vote for them, or see that they are being prosecuted, or both. And the first step in this process is to quit excuses or invent euphemisms. The struggle against the conservatives, the right wing, alt-law is against white nationalist terrorism and its apologists
