Remember Peter Brimelow?  He is the White Nationalist activist who made a big splash at the CPAC event in Washington DC last February.  His panel discussion on "The Failure of Multinationalism" was attended by Representative Steve King and other GOP luminaries.  

Brimelow has a day job as columnist for the (Murdoch-owned) Web site Marketwatch.  But his true passion is the White Nationalist hate site VDARE, which Brimelow owns and edits.  Recently, Brimelow welcomed disgraced ex-National Review contributor John Derbyshire to VDARE as a regular writer.

In his most recent VDARE piece, Brimelow shares his views on the "root cause" of the tragic shooting at the Sikh temple.

First, Brimelow rakes the mainstream media over the coals for focusing on the recent mass shootings by young, white American males such as Jared Loughner, James Holmes, and Wade Michael Page.  They are ignoring the "truth" that IMMIGRANTS are behind most of the mass killings:

It’s also necessary to stipulate, because you won’t see this in the MSM, that what happened in Oak Grove is far overshadowed by mass killings perpetrated by immigrants—often of other immigrants—the curious and ongoing phenomenon that VDARE.com calls Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome
For Brimelow, the fundamental question is not why the members of the Sikh temple were gunned down, but rather what are they doing here in the first place?  Sikhs, Brimelow points out, are not a harmless group "like the Amish" but rather a tough sect involved in all kinds of criminal activity:
Contrary to the impression given by MSM eulogies and despite their beards, Sikhs are not Amish—they are a pretty tough lot. (See here for the opinion of “An Indian-American Reader.”) In fact, they’ve been involved in a couple of Immigrant Mass Murders themselves—see here and here. And see here for a devastating account of Sikh organized crime and terrorism in Canada.
In the end, Brimelow sees the "root cause" of the mass shooting not in Page's neo-Nazi, white supremacist mindset, but rather in a perfectly understandable resentment of a white American who is economically disadvantaged by the influx of (dark-skinned) immigrants.  
When are we going to hear about the “root causes” of the Wisconsin shootings?

For example, Page, obviously a man of limited economic potential, worked as a trucker in civilian life. Trucking and taxi driving are two trades in which Sikhs are disproportionately represented. Has it not occurred to any MSM pundit that sheer American worker displacement might be a factor in this tragedy?

Maybe Brimelow can hold another panel discussion about "root causes" of neo-Nazi violence at next year's CPAC.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
