Does anyone remember this thread?
It was a NLBS episode where they argued that right wing terrorism was more of a threat then Islamic or other forms.
The crux of this episode had to do with a report by a man named Arie Perliger, that listed examples of "right wing terrorism?. As a showed on page
29 of that thread, he includes all examples of right wing terrorism as.
The dataset documents all violent attacks that: (1) were perpetrated by groups or individuals affiliated with far-right associations; and/or
(2) were intended to promote ideas compatible with far-right ideology, based on the ideological analysis presented in the first part of this
Based on this study, Arie and NLBS argued that right wing terrorism was more of a threat than Islamic or left wing terrorism.
When people in the thread pointed out the violence of BLM and other groups, ATS people assured us that they were working on an episode or thread about
that violence, but I have yet to see that.
So using Mr. Perlingers definition of violence by groups affiliated with ideologies, now that we see all of these riots in the name of left wing

I am not arguing that there are nuts on all sides of the political aisle. But it seems to me there are FAR more people on the extreme left willing to
engage in terrorist or violent behavior to get their point across. Can anyone show me even one example of thousands of right wing people rioting to
stop a liberal speech?
I think the people that run ATS do a great job, and I liked NLBS. This thread is not intended to attack these people, only to ask them in a serious
fashion if they have changed their mind about right wing terrorism being a bigger threat than the left given the riots we have seen recently.
