A white American convert to jihadism

I was reading an article today by the anti-jihad writer Patrick Poole in which he details the jihad propaganda activities of an white American man, Devin Zentmyer, who converted to Islam in prison, whom Poole aptly dubbed a “white trash jihadist.” While there is little news to be found in a petty criminal converting to Islam in prison, what caught my attention was a quote from a Homeland Security official interviewed by Poole familiar with the Muslim convert being covered:LA replies:
The fact that a white Westerner such as Zentmyer who has converted to Islam adopts the jihadist program shows that all the fancy cultural, historical, and psychological explanations for Islamic extremism are wrong (see my catalogue of the Non-Islam Theories of Islamic Extremism). It shows that the cause of Islamic extremism is—Islam. Whatever the psychology, the national origin, the immigration status, the socioeconomic status, the marital status of a Muslim, whether he is born of cousin marriage or not, whether he is culturally alienated in the West or not, whether he is sexually frustrated or not, whether he is angry at Islam being “left behind” by the modern West or not, if he’s a Muslim, then he is a candidate for Muslim extremist.LA replies:
Also, what a coincidence, that we have discussed two individuals named Devin in one day: Devin Zentmyer, the American convert to jihadism, and Devin, the race-mixed son of April Swanson. In the history of this site, there have only been two previous entries referencing anyone named Devin.
In this video, the “white trash Jihad” prattles on about an “unjust” government and our occupation of Muslim lands. Despite being a self-proclaimed devout Muslim, Devin maintains a laughably obvious black-American affect. His mannerisms, diction, and speech all mirror that of white American “wiggers” who coopt black culture in a misguided adopt to partake in a seemingly vibrant culture.
