Post Non-Muslim attackers get a lot less media coverage than those who claim Islam

Quote:
According to a new study covered in a Washington Post op-ed in March, attacks by people claiming to be Muslim received 449 percent more coverage on average in recent years than those perpetrated by virtually anyone else.

Erin Kearns, the lead author of the study, told ThinkProgress her team looked at attacks specifically designated as “terrorist incidents” by the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), which is housed at the University of Maryland. The GTD updates their just list once a year, so Kearns and her fellow authors only looked at incidents occurring from 2011–2015.

“When attacks are perpetrated by a Muslim, they receive drastically more coverage,” Kearns said in a phone interview.

Kearns says her team is still conducting research for the final paper, which is currently in the peer review process. Since publishing their initial findings, the group has expanded its research to include coverage of incidents dating back to 2006. They are also considering other factors that could enhance coverage, such as the target of an attack, the number of people killed, and whether or not the culprit was arrested.

But even accounting for all these variables and data sets, Kearns said they still see far more headlines for attackers who cite Islam as their inspiration.

“Across every model that we looked at, we’re still finding that Muslim perpetrators have at least 200 percent increase in coverage,” she said.

Kearns and her colleagues argue that disproportionate media attention can warp how the public understands terrorist threats, placing an emphasis on Muslims that is divorced from reality. Indeed, while militants who say they are inspired by Islam kill people every year, two terrorism experts declared in 2015 that Americans are actually far more likely to be killed by a right-wing extremist.

The last part being the truly interesting bit...
But it's the Muslim boogey-man that the right wants to fixate on. Cause heaven forbid they give their own backyard the same level of scrutiny...

It's not surprising.

You bring up a group of people who, in the face of film and audio tape proof that he's a liar, will not say the President is dishonest.

that might be true. but if you are a young girl, you are far more likely to have your clitoris cut off by muslim parents than non muslim parents. if you are a woman you are more likely to be blamed for being raped by muslims than by non muslims. if you say something deemed offensive to islam you are more likely to be killed by an insane mob than if you say something offensive about anything else. if you steal its more likely muslims who will advocate cutting your hand off than anyone else. if you want to change your religion thats only ok if you are a non muslim, because muslims will argue you should be killed for leaving islam. its overwhelmingly muslim societies who think gays should be executed AND ACTUALLY IMPLEMENT THIS PUNISHMENT. its only under islam where marrying and having sex with children in 2017 is legal.

but apart from that islam is a beautiful religion of peace. muhammad, the mass murdering slave trading pedophile he was truly created a religion in his image.







the problem with islam isnt terrorism. the problem is islam.

quran sura 9

5. Then when the Sacred Months have passed, then kill the Mushrikun (see V.2:105) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and prepare for them each and every ambush.

38. O you who believe! What is the matter with you, that when you are asked to march forth in the Cause of Allah (i.e. Jihad) you cling heavily to the earth?

111. Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.

it is entirely reasonable and appropriate to blame islam for those people who kill in the name of islam. that doesnt mean blaming all muslims, most muslims dont know their holy texts include this kind of violence, most muslims are non quranic muslims. but those who do know, and those who follow it, are simply doing what islam calls for.

Gordy, I've been told on several occasions that there is no such thing as a rape culture in this country. It's all in my imagination.

you are far more likely to have your clitoris cut off by muslim parents than non muslim parents.
if you say something deemed offensive to islam you are more likely to be killed by an insane mob than if you say something offensive about anything else.
if you steal its more likely muslims who will advocate cutting your hand off than anyone else.
if you want to change your religion thats only ok if you are a non muslim, because muslims will argue you should be killed for leaving islam.
its overwhelmingly muslim societies who think gays should be executed AND ACTUALLY IMPLEMENT THIS PUNISHMENT.
its only under islam where marrying and having sex with children in 2017 is legal.
