    JK Rowling is right. The guy was clearly a white supremacist / nationalist, yet the media is describing him as a lone wolf, as if white nationalism / white supremacy doesnt exist. Many media publications have done this in the past, not just the DM.

    This is white privilege in full form.

    But yeah, you're right. Homegrown terrorism from supremacists needs to be taken much more seriously.

    Congratulations you refer to the entire media being the Daily Mail, you deserve a special star for idiocy. Mind showing other media outlets saying he was a lone wolf?
    Reported your post.

    Also, many media publications have done this. DM are not the first to do this, and they will not be the last.

    The term lone wolf generally rises from the fact they are acting upon their own agenda.

    The reason we don't call Islamic mass killings lone wolves is because they will be part of a much larger terrorist cell, which in turn is part of an organisation such as IS. They are not lone wolves as they are acting on behalf of IS; this is why they always 'claim' acts of terrorism.

    It is not racism. It is simply the fact there are no organisations like ISIS for white supremacy and thus most of these murderers have formed their own views and commit these acts at their will

    It all depends on association or affiliation with a larger network or organisation. A "lone wolf" is simply someone who operates independently of such organisations. That is all.

    A white supremacist terrorist can be a lone wolf or a member of an organised network. Same applies to any other brand of terrorist. I think you are trying to make an argument that doesn't exist.

    pretty sure most of the worlds media are calling it just that

    and most with more than a couple of braincells recognise far right terrorism is one of the biggest threats to the west , after the greater threat of islamic terrorism.
    the white community is working to attack its issue with right wingers, what is the islamic community doing to sort out its internal problems?

    I know what lone wolf means, thank you Captain Obvious.

    Point here is that by calling these guys lone wolves rather than terrorists the media are euphemising their actions and their beliefs, and downplaying the fact that they belong to a wider ideology - white supremacy / white nationalism.

    What, because a SJW type claimed the media only ever refer to white non-Muslim terrorists as "lone wolf" and i produced an example of the opposite to prove the SJW was mistaken?

    And I hope you're not studying anything that involves any implement sharper than a chunky crayon.

    You claim that you know what "lone wolf" means, then immediately demonstrate that you don't by claiming that lone wolves cannot be terrorists!
    :facepalm2:

    the media are euphemising their actions and their beliefs, and downplaying the fact that they belong to a wider ideology - white supremacy / white nationalism.
    Media sources that have described Bissonnette as "white supremacist", "far right" or "white nationalist":
    The Guardian
    Al Jazeera
    BBC
    CNN
    Huffington Post
    Daily Mail
    Fox News
    Independent
    The Sun

    That should do for now.
    (Interestingly, only three of these sources used the term "lone wolf", although as I didn't search every article of theirs on the story, it cannot be claimed as proof).

    The fact this is an argument is ridiculous.

    People have DIED in these attacks. Don't be so bloody pathetic as to trivialise their deaths into an internet debate over a media source.
