Whitewashing Terrorism

First, a quick definitional overview:


I’ve written before about those who employ the second meaning of “whitewash” when writing of Islam and Islamic terrorism–here, for example, elsewhere on this blog; or here, in another online venue.

But this past week I wrote a long piece for The Stream which deconstructs–demolishes, actually–the Left’s current campaign to, literally, make terrorism “white.”  It’s entitled “White Terrorists v. the Sultans of Slaughter.”  Check it out.

Of course, these aren’t the terrorists Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is looking for–although they’re definitely white.
