    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.
    So many logical fallacies, so little time.

    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.

    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.
    Muslims can't be "white"?

    Neo-nazis cannot be anything other than "white"?

    What isn't white privilege?

    I mean 'lone wolf' white supremacists still do life or death sentences but because the media doesn't write words other than lone wolf they're inherently privileged.


    lone wolfnoun
    1. a person who prefers to act alone."he's a lone wolf; that's what made him a successful foreign correspondent"


    This may go some way to explaining it. A lone wolf killer usually works alone, acts alone and is the only person responsible. Other forms of terrorism, particularly Islamic terrorism, are organised, coordinated strikes carried out by or through multiple people - so even though the murder of Lee Rigby wasn't a supported act it wasn't 'lone wolf' because there was two of them.

    This is just pointless semantics and considering JK Rowling's books whilst enjoyable are the most self contradictory arbitrary MacGuffin filled pieces of literature ever, maybe she shouldn't be the one passing judgement on how words are used, she's not exactly Mary Shelley.

    Also it was covered by multiple news outlets at 'white supremacist' from the independent to the guardian and on top of that it is not exclusively white people described as 'lone wolf' killers anyway. Even if it was what does it matter? Being a lone wolf doesn't knock time off your sentence so what difference does it fundamentally make? And how is it privilege in any form?

    Lols nice try at deflecting from the topic at hand (i.e. "so what we call them lone wolves? what about dem muslims grrr"
    not ally deflecting at all- quite relevant really, the far right extremist tends to be working on their own seeing as they are often disparate individuals radicalised on line.. this can also apply to islamsits, but there is also a global well funded support system for multiple islamist groups so, there are threats from both individuals radicalised online, as well those trained and used as sacrificial pawns by larger islamic charity/arab funded groups

    in terms of neo-naziis there is also a majortopical link you miss, which is the constant expansion of islamist ideology in the muslims community and that communities failure to tackle it, is directlyleading to the growth of the far right- see whats happeing in France right now for example

    I have seen multiple media outlets refering to him as a terrorist, the Canadian Prime Minister himself called it an act of terrorism.

    'Lone wolf' simply refers to a terrorist who carries out their acts alone and without any support or material assistance from an outside group, it doesn't in any way imply that the act itself is not terrorism.
