At 9:02 a.m. on April 19, 1995, a 7,000-pound truck bomb, constructed of ammonium nitrate fertilizer and nitromethane racing fuel and packed into 13 plastic barrels, ripped through the heart of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The explosion wrecked much of downtown Oklahoma City and killed 168 people, including 19 children in a day-care center. Another 500 were injured. Although many Americans initially suspected an attack by Middle Eastern radicals, it quickly became clear that the mass murder had actually been carried out by domestic, right-wing terrorists.


Did you know that since the Oklahoma City bombing by Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, there has been 58 domestic terrorists acts committed in the USA? Did you know in the same time there were 58 terrorist plots thwarted by federal, state and local officials?


What follows is a detailed listing of major terrorist plots and racist rampages that have emerged from the American radical right in the years since Oklahoma City. These have included plans to bomb government buildings, banks, refineries, utilities, clinics, synagogues, mosques, memorials and bridges; to assassinate police officers, judges, politicians, civil rights figures and others; to rob banks, armored cars and other criminals; and to amass illegal machine guns, missiles, explosives and biological and chemical weapons. [Each of these plots aimed to make changes in America through the use of political violence.] Most contemplated the deaths of large numbers of people — in one case, as many as 30,000, or 10 times the number murdered on Sept. 11, 2001.

Here are the stories of plots, conspiracies and racist rampages since 1995 — plots and violence waged against a democratic America.


Follow this link to see the list, some on this list are not right wing IMO SPLC

Here is a interactive link to a map that shows you these groups by state and I state again many on this list have nothing to do with the right, but are posted anyway.

The SPLC is a hate group unto their selves. Watching the watch dogs



What [the SPLC] apparently did was list any group they could find mention of, including groups only rumored to exist. These included the large number of “post office box chapters” maintained by Klan and skinhead organizations. Some Christian Identity “ministries” consist only one person and a mailing list and many “patriot groups” consist of but three or four friends.

They also listed many groups whose actual affiliation is neither KKK nor neo-Nazi and who would argue with the designation of “white supremacy.” In short, they misleadingly padded their list. When the SPLC releases their list, either in print or on the Internet, it fails to contain actual addresses that might be checked by journalists or researchers. Several listings refer to “unknown group” and the name of a city or town. — The Watchdogs, p. 79

Mark Potok admitted as much a decade later:

“Potok says inclusion on the list might come from a minor presence, such as a post office box.” (www.sanluisobispo.com, March 25, 2009)

4. As noted, in many cases, Mr. Potok does not even bother to provide a physical location for his alleged groups. Last year, 247 of his 1,017 alleged “hate groups” were homeless, or about one in four. This year, 195 of his 1,007 alleged groups are phantoms, or about one in five.

In 2011, Watching the Watchdogs actually got to ask Mr. Potok in person about these missing groups. As the video clip below shows, Mr. Potok was startled by the question at first, as no one apparently has ever bothered to vet his numbers before, and he then proceeds to stammer out that his “hate map,” the keystone of all SPLC claims and fundraising rhetoric, is “anecdotal,” “a very rough measure” and “an imperfect process.”




As for the numbers who knows, but when someone has an agenda who knows what they will claim.

They have a radical Jewish group and at least one Muslim group on the list, so the list is not 100% right wing.

Personally, I am more afraid of the left wing radicals like Bill Ayers and his buddy Barry Soetoro.
These are the real people that cause domestic terrorism, they just do it from the inside of a political office now. The one located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in DC.

I cant believe this, but I agree with you.

Right left etc...has absolutely no religious affiliation.

Yes the majority of christians are right wing, but that does not mean all christians are.

When was the last act of domestic terrorism caused by an American leftist radical? 1981?

Let's ignore the SPLC list which is clearly flawed and look at some actual domestic terrorism. If you follow the trends in recent domestic terrorism, quite a few of these are committed by militant Christians and white supremacists:

1993 - Dr. George Tiller shot multiple times by anti-abortion activist (Shelley Shannon)
1993 - Dr. David Gunn murdered in Pensacola, Florida by anti-abortionist (Michael F. Griffin)
1994 - Dr. John Britton & James Barrett murdered in Pensacola, FL by anti-abortionist (Paul Jennings Hill)
1995 - Oklahoma City bombing (McVeigh & Nichols)
1996 - Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta (Eric Rudolph)
1997 - Abortion clinic bombing in Sandy Springs, GA (Eric Rudolph)
1997 - Bombing of the Otherside Lounge in Atlanta (Eric Rudolph)
1998 - Dr. Barnett Abba Slepian II murdered by anti-abortion activist in Buffalo, NY (James Charles Kopp)
2008 - Knoxville Unitarian Universalist church shooting (Jim David Adkisson)
2009 - Dr. George Tiller murdered in a Witchita, KS church by anti-abortion activist (Scott Roeder)
2009 - US Holocaust Memorial Museum shooting (James Wenneker von Brunn)
2010 - Shootout with CHP while en route to planned attack on ACLU (Bryon Williams)
2011 - Spokane bombing attempt on MLK parade (Kevin Harpham)
2012 - Sikh Temple Shooting in Cudahy, Wisconsin (Michael Page)
2013 - Los Angeles International Airport shooting (Paul Ciancia)
2014 - Overland Park Jewish Community Center shooting (Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr)
2014 - Las Vegas police murders and shootout (Jerad and Amanda Miller)

I bolded dates to indicate attacks that were committed for purely right-wing political reasons as opposed to religion or bigotry. In the same time frame there were also of course several significant instances of domestic terrorism committed by militant Muslims (Beltway Sniper attacks, Fort Hood shooting, Boston Marathon bombing). It's worth noting that there have also been a number of attacks by Jewish militants with connections to the JDL (though the JDL publicly condemns terrorism).

In this time, there were also two terrorism attacks by international eco-terrorists, the ELF:

2001 - University of Washington arson that put the ELF on the top of the FBI's list.
2008 - Woodinville, Washington arson of four homes in an upscale neighborhood

There have been far more attacks that were thwarted in the planning stages that are too numerous to list. The point is that when you strip away the attacks relating to religion, bigotry and.. ermm.. ecology, you're left with a few disturbing instances of right wing militants whose motivations are things like "igniting a revolution" and "saving the constitution."

So let's stop talking about 60's and 70's ultra-left radicals. There has been a discernible shift from ultra-left to ultra-right domestic terrorism. To say that some groups under the umbrella of the Patriot Movement and the ultra-right Christian Identity movement (which if you want to be technical, Eric Rudolph had ties to) aren't something to keep an eye on is the height of willful ignorance.

As a side note, the SPLC has itself been the target of planned terrorism. In 1995, the Oklahoma Constitutional Militia was planning to bomb SPLC offices as well as LGBT clubs and abortion clinics. Back in 1988, Glenn Miller, then prominent member of the White Patriot Party (formerly a KKK chapter) was arrested for plotting to kill the founder of the SPLC, Morris Dees. Twenty-six years later, he was responsible for the Overland Park Jewish Community Center shooting.

Since you included shooters in your listing ... I'll add a few claims from the internet
Live Leak

Fort Hood mass murderer Nidal Malik Hassan ...registered democrat and a devout muslim.
Columbine... Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold ... families active democrats.
Virginia Tech..... Shooter Seugn-Hui Cho ... hate mail to Bush43
Aurora Theater..... James Egan Holmes ... registered democrat
Newtown school shooter Adam Lanza ... registered democrat
Jared Loughter - killed 6 year old girl and shot gabby giffords .... democrat
Brandon Baxter -Occupy Wall Street Protester Caught Planning to Blow Up Bridges
Douglas Wright - Occupy Wall Street Protester Caught Planning to Blow Up Bridges
Anthony Hayne -Occupy Wall Street Protester Caught Planning to Blow Up Bridges
Connor C. Stevens- Occupy Wall Street Protester Caught Planning to Blow Up Bridges
Joshua S. Stafford -Occupy Wall Street Protester Caught Planning to Blow Up Bridges

To try to pin domestic terrorism on the left or the right solely doesn't work.
Both the left and the right have some extremist nutters and unbalanced people.

All very interesting I am sure. But perhaps you would like to tell me how that contradicts my statement?
A shooting here or there does not compare to the massive amount of damage one can do from the White House.

Except that's all BS. It's been debunked a million times.

Nidal Hassan - Muslim. True. Not a "registered Democrat" because neither state he'd resided in has party registration.

Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Families not registered Democrats and it wouldn't matter anyway, they were both too young to vote. Both admirers of Timothy McVeigh.

Seugn-Hui Cho - Resident alien. Not eligible to vote.

James Holmes - brietbart lie, no other source to back any of this up. NONE. If you find it, please present it.

Adam Lanza - not a registered Democrat either. Nothing to back this up, though he was a member of the NRA.

All of this started with some op-ed in the Custer County Chronicle that went viral. You're going to have to do better than pasting lies from liveleak sourced to lies from some op-ed.

I'm sorry, is Bill Ayers in the White House? Is the President bombing statues? I realize that you're hung-up on a six year-old lie that was blitzed around by nutjobs in the conservative echo chamber, but no matter what Obama's short-comings as President might be, there was never any credible information that linked Bill Ayers and Obama other than both being on a single speaking panel on a single occasion and living in the same affluent Chicago neighborhood.

This was beaten to death, debunked, disproved, etc in 2008. Please, either come up with something credible or stop regurgitating the same tired fabrications.

Strange, all these terrorist attacks and the US government has yet to firebomb one major city. Doesn't the government have the right to defend itself?

'The left' has yet to even match the Oklahoma bombing or the Unabomber.

Really, it's kind of quaint to bring up up Bill Ayers as an example of left wing hate movements. That guy is small potatoes compared to the right wing pros.

Quotes from the Unabomber (I suppose nobody disputes that Timothy McVeigh was a right winger? I hope?):


6. Almost everyone will agree that we live in a deeply troubled
society. One of the most widespread manifestations of the craziness of
our world is leftism, so a discussion of the psychology of leftism can
serve as an introduction to the discussion of the problems of modern
society in general.

15. Leftists tend to hate anything that has an image of being strong,
good and successful. They hate America, they hate Western
civilization, they hate white males, they hate rationality. The
reasons that leftists give for hating the West, etc. clearly do not
correspond with their real motives.

16. Words like "self-confidence," "self-reliance," "initiative",
"enterprise," "optimism," etc. play little role in the liberal and
leftist vocabulary. The leftist is anti-individualistic,
pro-collectivist. He wants society to solve everyone's needs for them,
take care of them. He is not the sort of person who has an inner sense
of confidence in his own ability to solve his own problems and satisfy
his own needs. The leftist is antagonistic to the concept of
competition because, deep inside, he feels like a loser.

We emphasize the problem of purposelessness because the
liberals and leftists would wish to solve our social problems by
having society guarantee everyone's security; but if that could be
done it would only bring back the problem of purposelessness. The real
issue is not whether society provides well or poorly for people's
security; the trouble is that people are dependent on the system for
their security rather than having it in their own hands. This, by the
way, is part of the reason why some people get worked up about the
right to bear arms; possession of a gun puts that aspect of their
security in their own hands.

Leftist
anthropologists go to great lengths to avoid saying anything about
primitive peoples that could conceivably be interpreted as negative.
They want to replace the word "primitive" by "nonliterate." They seem
almost paranoid about anything that might suggest that any primitive
culture is inferior to our own.

"A single speaking panel on a single occasion"?
Read the interview. William admits to a lot more than a single occasion. Barry denies even that much. Kinda sounds as if they are both lieing.

Jared Loughter was a registered independent, claiming he was a democrat is a lie.


I am searching for a video on left wing terrorist but other than political pundits I'm not having much success. But finding right wing terrorists acts is way too easy.

130 patriot groups in the USA when Obama was elected now there is over 1300.
