Newsweek

"Right-wing extremists were not only more successful, they were often more deadly, too."

"It should be noted, however, that Islamist extremists killed more people overall, with a death toll of 90 people compared to 79."

How can they be more deadly while killing less people overall?

I also have to say that it's a bit harder for extremists to attack if they are not here. Maybe not having a lax immigration policy will keep the numbers low.


"...the Investigative Fund said: “This project quantifies just how irrational Trump and the GOP's fixation on 'radical Islamic terrorism' as the greatest security threat is.”

Or it just shows that you are willing to ignore factors to push your agendas across. Possibly like Trump is doing.

Article seems like crap to me.

    I have children.

    Many times in the past, I would catch one of my sons doing something naughty.

    His first response was, "But my brother is worse!"


    I didn't buy it then, not buying it now.

    Newsweek is just another leftist rag trying to marginalize the hatred and violence from their ideological camp.

    Well that's funny because these Muslim terrorists are Right Wing politically.

    A very conservative bunch.


    So yes, Right Wing terror is the biggest threat.

    'MOST TERRORISTS IN THE U.S. ARE RIGHT WING, NOT MUSLIM: REPORT'


    The title should read:

    Fake Liberal Study says Most Terrorists in the U.S. Are Right Wing, Not Muslim

    #TRUTH

    It is common to hear reports of attackers yelling Allahu Akbar when they attack. I have never heard a report of one yelling out Jehovah or Jesus Christ during an attack.

    I think false-flag terror sponsored by government is the biggest threat.

    Timothy McVeigh held socialist beliefs not "Right-wing". The MSM falsely aligned him to conservative beliefs. Just like the notion that Hitler was "worse" than communist Stalin despite Stalin killing an estimated 60 million people

    So, so true.

    That's one of the many enigmas about SJW's being so foaming at the mouth if people try to criticize the "Dark Side" stuff in old world Islam.

    The vernacular the paper was using was the one where all white racists of the anti-minority varieties are labelled "right wing".

    Dude, Hazardo is Muslim.

    Are you?



    GO over to the ME and start telling them you're gay and that they need to encourage their kids to be gay, and report back to us.

    But nevermind the fact that muslims make up less than one percent of the US population.

    So non-muslims would have to commit 99 acts of terrorism for every 1 commited by a muslim, just to be on par with them.

    Old World Islam is the most anti-"progressive" ideology in the freaking world, dude.

    I'm sensing a melon that could use some kind of treatment.

    The extremist muslims are a very conservative bunch, in the traditional sense.

    They don't care much for women or women's rights that's for damn sure.

    Don't care much for people who aren't muslim, and even then they have to be the right kind of muslim. They hate the "false muslims" more than anyone else.

    I could go on but I don't have the time.

    Further to the right than Enoch Powell those extremist islamists.

    The report linked to by OP is hard to get to grips with, because it persistently bamboozles the reader by jumping between quantities and percentages. If you can draw meaningful conclusions from statements like " 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." then you have a mathematical agility not common in the general public.

    Very, very, roughly, it looks to me, from the above quote, as though the numeric total of thwarted attacks was similar in each category, which might be accounted for by mundane reasons, e.g., budgetary constraints on investigations. (Also, the report specifies 'police' - so where does the FBI fit into all this?)

    My own thought on the supposed discrepancy is that home-grown extremism gets a softer ride than Islamist terrorism because of two things. The Second Amendment, obviously; and (less obviously) because the US Constitution specifically states that it might become necessary to overthrow a tyranny if one arises - for very obvious reasons, therefore, it's almost a foregone conclusion that the US is a bit wary about cracking down on domestic terrorists.
