So a lot of people call out the lack of accurate "terrorism" semantics as racist, and yeah, that's *true*, but also;
I feel like our media has decided on which premade narrative to use. This isn't the Scary Outsiders Threatening Us narrative, it's the How Could Such A Nice Normal Person Do This narrative.
What's actually going on now doesn't count, 'cause they've decided to make it the trope someone decided sold best back in the 90s.

@rotatingskull to dip into a mild conspiracy theory I have: I believe flooding the market is also the goal of "teach everyone to code" campaigns. the sponsors of them are curiously the orgs that would stand the most to gain if wages blew out
