Steven Timothy Snyder:
Mr. Snyder had a twenty year long history as a white supremacist, including membership in the National Front, once the number one neo-Nazi group in the country, and having been arrested in a violent skinhead attack on blacks and Hispanics.
I bet you can guess what word in the English language is conspicuously missing from any of the dozens of articles about this guy: yup, "terrorist." It didn't occur to anyone at all of the news organizations reporting on this incident to question whether this person with twenty years of history as a right wing racist might be a terrorist. Oh no, it was just a garden variety crime, which has no connection to his political past, and can therefore just be forgotten, along with the hundreds of other murders committed by skinheads, Sovereign Citizens, Christian Identity followers and all the other White haters in this country.
Update: Well, now it's a couple of days after the crime, and it is clear that the mainstream press is taking absolutely zero interest in this story, and the minimal coverage it did get practically ignored Snyder's right wing background. I guess these jerks are going to have to kill a lot more people before we are allowed to notice what is motivating them.
One hopeful sign, however: Here is a listing from a Google search for him:
