Amerikkka… despite its “war on terror”, a laughable farce of a term, is home to some of the oldest terrorist organizations in existence. Organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, and other scattered “right wing militias” (white supremacist paramilitary groups) essentially only exist for terroristic purposes. A database compiled by the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute says that out of 201 incidents that could be classified as terrorism between 2008-2016, those committed by “right wing extremists” (code word for white supremacists) outnumber those by so-called “Islamicists” (those who whites want to make the face of terrorism) by nearly a 2-1 margin. According to the report, right wing/white supremacists account for 115 cases, “Islamicists” accounted for 63 cases, and “others” (so called “left wing” groups, animal rights activists, so-called Black Lives Matter activists, kwk) accounted for 19 cases. Nearly 1/3rd of those committed by so called “right wing extremists” resulted in casualties. The Department of Homeland Security issued a report which gave the statistic that white supremacists were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000-2016, more than any other domestic terrorist movement. But although these statistics, taken and provided by whites themselves, are as clear as day, the mainstream media, which functions as the propaganda arm of the system of white supremacy, are often very hesitant and unwilling to label these incidents as terrorism. In fact, in Feb 2017 under the administration of white supremacist in chief, Donald Trump, the government and national law enforcement organizations declared that they would would no longer target white supremacist groups, under a program called “Countering Violent Extremism”, and would instead focus all of their attention on Muslim groups, and that they would be changing the name of the program to “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism”.
Recently, the FBI has come with a report that suggests that those who are labeled as “Black Identity Extremists”, which is a totally made-up term/movement, but I suppose that it refers to conscious or “woke” Black people, those of Afrikan descent who are aware of racism/white supremacy, and are actively attempting to crush white supremacy and replace it with justice, are a violent terroristic threat in the US, although details of the crimes of this supposedly dangerous movement are noticeably absent. This is extremely significant because whites, who are extraordinarily adept at using their propaganda to change the narratives, and literally change the face of the negative, destructive behaviors that they predominantly engage in, are setting the stage to again change the face of terrorism, from its rightful white face, away from the traditional scapegoat of terrorism, the arab/middle easterner, to Black/Afrikan people, and specifically, Black/Afrikan people who do not subscribe to the horrific, immoral system of racism/white supremacy. This, coupled with the National Defense Authorization act, signed into law by Barack Obama, which authorizes military detention of civilians, even so called US citizens, without habeus corpus or due process, sets the stage for egregious injustice. Essentially, this means that whites are using terroristic strategies, to strike down so-called terrorism, which really consists of people who fight against the terroristic ways of the establishment. It is like a complete cipher of evil and injustice.
Since white supremacy is a global problem, and in my view, the single biggest global problem in existence, their terrorism is not only limited to how they deal with non-whites in Amerikkka, but it also applies to the way Amerikkka has operated internationally. white Amerikkkans, along with those who may be of other races, but who have pledged their allegiance to Amerikkkan white supremacy through their employment and/or association with the institutions that enforce that social order, operate terroristically by way of their constant invasions of foreign territories in order to rape those countries of its natural resources, occupying and colonizing those territories for indefinite periods, and controlling them politically, either outright or by installing puppet regimes. This actually makes things such as the “war on terror” even more of a joke than usual, because Amerikkka has always been terroristic in nature since its inception, by its own definitions of what terror is. Their war on terror and labeling all those who are willing to use alternative means for expressing their political viewpoints as terrorists is the definition of projection, and another demonstration of the characteristic arrogance of the practitioners of white supremacy.
Since systematic white supremacy is built unjustly on lies and deception, and was enforced by extreme violence, genocidal acts and enslavement, the only way in which such a system could possibly be maintained is through a system of terrorism. Terrorism, as defined at the beginning of the article is necessary within such an unjust, immoral system because the system is built directly off of the subjugation of all non-whites, but especially, and most viciously, Black/Afrikan people. A society that was created through violence, must then be maintained mainly through violence, or the threat thereof. Such a system is bound to produce rebellion and insurgency among those who are rightfully and righteously dissatisfied and enraged by such malfeasance. This system has many different components designed to keep Black/Afrikan people mentally distracted and confused, and is designed to coerce Black/Afrikan people into “playing along”, which many do because of the fear of the perceived violent repercussions of speaking out and actively working against white supremacy. This is yet again, according to the definition at the beginning, terroristic in nature. These fears are justified, when one studies the history of those who made it their life’s work to fight white supremacy (Malcolm X, Garvey, Patrice Lumumba, Assata Shakur, Steven Biko, Darren Seals, Khalid Muhammad, and on and on), It recalls how Baba Kamau Kambon refers to the current dominant social order not as white supremacy, but as systematic global white terror and domination, as a way of not giving whites supreme status, but defining the social order in the way it was established and maintained, through terrorism.
This once again highlights the importance of studying our enemies, and taking in, as well as dispensing correct information. Without having the correct information, we do not have a chance at survival against this system, which is built on hypocrisy, lies, contradictions, and terrorism, and is armed with a powerful propaganda and public relations machine, which is used to justify whatever the psychopaths who are at the controls of the institutions which constitute white supremacy want to do. The way western white nations have been beating the drum against terrorism, while making non-whites the face of terrorism, is absolutely nothing but whites using their propaganda arm to change the narrative, project their own psychopathy onto others, and pass the buck, so to speak. We must re-take control of the narrative, and always define any act of white supremacy as an act of terrorism, while never letting whites, who tend to be magicians with the english language, be able to wiggle their way out of that label. Those of us who have the correct information can never again allow our enemies to pejoratively use the term terrorist without making them define terrorism, and reminding them of their sordid history of terrorism, in which the system that they enjoy, and use as a weapon against all other people, but especially Black/Afrikan people, was built.
