The real threat of terrorism, as far as the establishment is concerned, is that it will inspire a nationalist backlash against open borders. That is why after a Muslim blows up a bunch of people the main concern is to tell people that not all Muslims are terrorists and we must be united and terrorists will not change our way of life. The main problem is not the dead and injured people and their traumatized families. The main problem is the threat that normal people might want to get rid of the Muslims and open borders and multiculturalism. Once you understand this the reaction of both political parties and nearly all celebrities and certainly all the media makes sense. Remember, you are the real threat. Not the terrorists.
