Guess Which Story Rates NYT’s Page One And Leads The TV News?

1) A handful of guys in Jersey, with the encouragement of an undercover FBI agent, hatch a plot to attack Fort Dix, a military base guarded by TWELVE THOUSAND soldiers. You know, soldiers — aka “people with actual weapons and the training to use them”? The Jersey boys are turned in by their enabler/informant well before they have the chance to get shot down attempting their little act of stupidity.

2) A group of a few dozen guys in Alabama start a “militia” with the express aim of killing lots and lots of Mexicans, but are busted before they can carry out their plot. Unlike the guys in Story #1, they actually get to the point where they have not just weapons, but tons and tons and TONS of them — and they didn’t have an FBI informant egging them on.

3) Somebody decides to pull an Eric Rudolph and bomb an Austin, Texas women’s clinic; fortunately, the bomb, which was placed in a duffel bag in the clinic’s parking lot, is found and safely detonated before it can harm anyone. Again, this actual act of terrorism progressed well beyond the mere plotting stages of Story #1.

Now, which of these recent terrorism stories got the most coverage?

If you answered “Story #1”, you win. Our media considers #1 to be more important than #2 or #3 because the plotters in #1 were all brown-skinned guys who aren’t Christians.

    You are quite the anti-Christian bigot aren’t you.

  2. Well, well! The Nice Polite Aryans running the Army of God have shown up!

    For people who don’t know about AoG, here’s the scoop on them:

    Army of God
    From SourceWatch

    The Army of God is an “anti-abortion group characterized by paramilitary tactics and linked to incidences of murder, bombings, arson and kidnapping that date back to the early 1980s. The Army of God is responsible for distributing a manual that supplies detailed instructions for attacking abortion clinics, manufacturing bombs and cutting off the hands of abortion doctors.

    “The group also glorifies those who kill workers at women’s reproductive health clinics, like Paul J. Hill, a Presbyterian minister convicted of killing two abortion clinic workers in Florida in 1993, and James Kopp, who is charged with murdering a doctor in New York. The Army of God also claims affiliation with the notorious Eric Robert Rudolf, who [was] wanted in connection with the 1996 Olympic Park bombing and suspected of 2 other bombings in Atlanta.” [1]
