DHS Video Depicts Terrorists as White Americans

It really does. See for yourself. The DHS video goes out of its way to avoid showing any terrorist who fits the profile of the actual terrorists who have been waging war on us for more than a decade: Young men primarily from the Middle East. Instead, it tends to show them as middle aged white men. And it doesn’t really show them doing much of what actual terrorists do. It’s as if DHS is trying to make a completely useless anti-terrorism video.

Within the video, the narrator makes it clear that ethnicity, age and religion should not be a factor in judging whether an act is terrorism or not. While showing terrorists mostly as white men.

This video might slip past without raising much comment if the Napolitano DHS didn’t have a record of, on the one hand dismissing actual terrorism as “man caused disasters,” while on the other hand drafting a report that warned of potential terrorism from returning veterans and conservative groups. But Napolitano’s DHS does have that record.
