This country has a problem with Radical Left Wing Terrorists
A joint project by the Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute, a nonprofit media center, and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting has found that within the past nine years, right-wing extremists plotted or carried out nearly twice as many terrorist attacks as Islamist extremists. Of the 115 right-wing incidents, police only foiled 35 percent. Compare this to the 63 Islamist terrorism cases, where police foiled 76 percent of the planned attacks.
Right-wing extremists were not only more successful, they were often more deadly, too. From 2008 to 2016, a third of right-wing attacks involved fatalities, compared to 13 percent of Islamist attacks. It should be noted, however, that Islamist extremists killed more people overall, with a death toll of 90 people compared to 79.

The Bundys didn't spend a day in jail for either of their stunts.
The Hammonds aren't exactly relevant as they had no part in what the Bundys and their followers did. In fact the Hammonds wanted them to stop.
Lavoy's death was hardly suspicious. He plowed through a roadblock, got out of his car and continued to walk toward officers while reaching for a gun despite numerous calls for him to stop. Not to mention he is on tape saying that he will not be taken alive.
The Bundys and their followers are just as much terrorists as groups like Antifa. And yet the Trump supporters herald them as patriots.

The problem is there's not enough of them.
