  • Another Deadly Attack by a White Supremacist

    Richard Collins III was about to graduate from Bowie State University on Tuesday. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the US Army. He was airborne certified. He was a son, a friend, and active in his church.

    To Sean Urbanski, a University of Maryland student, he was black. At around 3 am on Saturday, May 20, Collins waited for an Uber ride along with two friends who were students at UMD at an on-campus bus stop. Urbanski walked up to them, and, according to witnesses, said, “Step left, step left if you know what’s best for you.” Collins simply replied, “No.” He stood his ground. Urbanski then stabbed him in the chest and fled the scene. Collins died at the hospital.

    Urbanski, as has been widely reported, is a member of a racist Facebook group called “Alt-Reich: Nation.”

      They know who the perp is, he'll be arrested soon enough. These scumbags need to be taken out of society.

        Already arrested, that same night.

          While it appears fairly certain that this perp acted alone, and not as part of any kind of larger organization, since his crime was, at least at first glance, motivated by his political sentiments, would it be fair to characterize this crime as an act of terrorism? I tend to think so.

            As sad as it is, it does reconfirm that on the Right individuals act in heinous ways in isolation while on the Left they do it as large groups.

              And that confirms confirmation bias.

                No, but your statement confirms that the more like you (in terms of race, religion, politics etc. ) the more you will see an individual and the more unlike you, the more you will see a group.

                  Well it was definitely a hate crime.

                  R.I.P to the Lieutenant. A good man killed in a cowardly act of violence by someone not fit to shine his shoes.

                    Are Muslim terrorists left or right? They operate both as individuals and as groups.

                      They are anything but liberal in thoughts and actions.

                        These days, who the hell is Liberal?

                        By the classic definition of the word, that means


                        1
                        a : of, relating to, or based on the liberal arts liberal education
                        b archaic : of or befitting a man of free birth
                        2
                        a : marked by generosity : openhanded a liberal giver
                        b : given or provided in a generous and openhanded way a liberal meal
                        c : ample, full
                        3
                        obsolete : lacking moral restraint : licentious
                        4
                        : not literal or strict : loose a liberal translation
                        5
                        : broad-minded; especially : not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or traditional forms
                        Yeah, that last one.... the one that matters.

                        Because if there are, I ain't seeing it much lately.

                          Still a lot of people out there who believe that McVeigh and Nicholls acted not alone, but as part of a larger group -- and there is evidence out there that supports that view. Don't know about this particular perp in MD, but there have been no shortage of white supremacist terrorist types of late who, while technically acting alone, have in fact been associated with like-minded organizations. Meanwhile, we're seeing from the radical Islamist faction a growth of lone-wolf actors, and they're proving awfully challenging for law enforcement and intel to catch preemptively. In short, I don't think that the facts bear out your supposition. The lone-wolf, perhaps radicalized socially, will find it easier to act alone, while the grand conspiracy a la al Qaeda will become less and less common due to the pressures exerted by law enforcement and intel services.

                            I suppose you could say they are far right - in regards to being "conservative" reactionaries with a disdain for modernity (btw, I put conservative in quotes to distinguish this more odious sort of conservative from more mainstream conservatives). But pinning them down on the spectrum is difficult.

                            Apparently he was a member of a neo-nazi (or at least alt-right) group on facebook, but what, if anything, they had to do with it is hard to say.
