The European Brand of Terrorism

On Thursday night in Vienna, a group of neo-Nazi extremists interrupted the European club match between Austria Vienna and Athletic Bilbao. The match coincided with a pan-European meeting of neo-Nazis from Austria, Bulgaria, Spain, and Italy. This type of incident should be recognized for what it is: terrorism, pure and simple. Yet, it received absolutely no coverage whatsoever in the New York Times, Washington Post, or CNN. Were the neo-Nazis armed, FOX would have called it a Tea Party.

    Sorry, drawing a big, fat blank …

    Ummmm, maybe there wasn’t enough sensationalism to make it saleable here? I don’t know, I’m reaching for something.

    No love for the game. Not enough time outs for commercials.
