(Help Us Update This List!—No-one Else Is Counting!)
The July 22, 2011 mass shooting in Norway—committed, for once, by a Norwegian—led, predictably, to a witch hunt against conservatives, nationalists, and people who are skeptical about immigration. John W. Miller (not notorious immigration enthusiast John J. Miller) reported in the Wall Street Journal
"OSLO—European authorities are investigating possible links between the man who has confessed to last week's massacre in Norway and right-wing elements across the region, putting Europe's recently ascendant far-right movements on the defensive.
“Europol, which handles transnational criminal investigations in Europe, has assigned dozens of officers to assist Norwegian police. A spokesman for the agency declined to offer specifics, but said Europol had given Norwegian authorities access to its database of 'European extremists.' "
Europe's Far-Right Parties Go on Defensive | Authorities Examine Possible Links With Norway Bomber, July 28, 2011
Of course, immigration patriot parties in Europe and Scandinavia are already being persecuted by powerful bureaucracies for CrimeThink—see my It Happened Here, for Belgium banning a flourishing political party; or Then They Came For Nick Griffin , for what keeps happening to the head of the British National Party.
But the Norwegian massacre made it ten times worse. It will be like those crackdowns on Islamic immigration and on mosques preaching jihad that didn't happen after either 9/11 or the London 7/7 Bombing.
When we get actual immigrants committing mass murder, there isn't a witch hunt of any kind.
In fact, there is a whole Main Stream Media stereotypical story worrying about the (non-existent) danger of “backlash”.
Far larger is the phenomenon of "Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome", introduced by VDARE.com to cover incidents like the Virginia Tech Shootings and many, many, underreported others that do not involve Norwegians or Nazis of any kind. By our count since 1971, it’s 37 incidents and 337 murders as of tonight.
It’s a Trend—far stronger than the curious tendency of U.S. Post Service workers to shoot fellow employees. “Going Postal” has entered the language. But “immigrant mass murder” has not—and will not, if the MSM can help it.
Is Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome really statistically valid? Mass murder, alas, is not a job that Americans won’t do.
It’s a topic for social science research—which isn’t going to be done, because, as an education expert told VDARE.com Editor Peter Brimelow about the impact of immigrants on native-born classroom performance, “no-one wants to know the answer”. My impression, from several years of checking whenever VDARE.com sees a case in the news, is that about half of these cases involve immigrants—vastly greater than their presence in the American population (some 11 per cent).
For our earlier Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome count, see
That was written right after the Virginia Tech massacre in 2007, but before Binghamton and Fort Hood, and...the list goes on. (See full list below.)
Brenda noted that Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome is rather like Daniel Pipes’ widely-publicized concept of “Sudden Jihad Syndrome”. But this should perhaps be regarded as merely a special case of the more general phenomenon.
Immigrants commit mass murder either from total alienation, like the Virginia Tech and Binghamton killings; or as workplace violence, part of the price of cheap labor. And, especially distressing, there are 12 cases in the list below where an immigrant killed or tried to kill their whole family. We've been referring to this as "Familicide". Some of these were fairly large families by American standards. The defense frequently claims that it was the strain of living in America that caused the murders. If so, it's a reason some of these immigrants should have stayed home.
There's a rule in the MSM not to mention the race or national origin of a killer, and never to write a headline that says Immigrant Slays Six. VDARE.com has to do a lot of digging to establish that these are, in fact, immigrants.
I've left out a few things from this list on purpose:
After Virginia Tech, Pat Buchanan wrote
"Many immigrants do not assimilate. Many do not wish to. They seek community in their separate subdivisions of our multicultural, multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual mammoth mall of a nation. And in numbers higher than our native born, some are going berserk here. ....
“Where does one find such facts? On VDARE.com, a Website that covers the dark side of diversity covered up by a politically correct media, which seem to believe it is socially unhealthy for us Americans to see any correlation at all between mass migrations and mass murder. "
VDARE.com is still the only place one finds such facts. We are the only people covering this—the MainStream Media is covering it up.
So below is a systematic attempt to list all the immigrant mass murders we can find. It is necessarily incomplete. I ask readers to send in other examples from the past to add to this list. [Email me]
I do not hope for further examples generated by more murderous immigrants. However, I confidently expect immigrants from places with a tradition of violence and a hatred for America to provide them. Please send them in too—they often vanish, particularly if they’re in the heartland
And at VDARE.com, we'll be here to report them all.
