We have to be careful when we talk about it though because it can just mean wildly outside the norm.

Like extreme sports.

Right, agreed. I’m all for divergence from the norm, as long as said person or group respects other people and doesn’t want to impose it on others. I myself have gone through everything from the lgbt to underground rave scene to hippy scene of ca, where I grew up.

There is a lot of far-right domestic terrorism in the U.S., religious extremists can be terrorists whether they are Muslim or Christian. I was reading that a lot of law enforcement officials are worried that not enough attention is being brought to right-wing extremists.

A new terrorism database analysis shows almost two-thirds of the terror attacks in the United States last year were carried out by right-wing extremists.


Study shows two-thirds of U.S. terrorism tied to right-wing extremists

It would be wrong to ignore this.

I stand mistaken. That is #10. Still the point remains. Only two of the top 10 deadliest terror attacks in US history were the result of Islamic extremism. The rest were committed in the name of white supremacy.


So first you said it was ‘right wing extremism’ and now you’re saying ‘white supremacy’.

Which is it?

Because they are NOT the same thing. Not even close.


Wonder how it can be "White Supremacy" when many of the victims are they themselves white...

You didn’t get the memo: literally everything is white supremacy.

What about the far left like antifa? They are spreading terror and hurting people.

Who defines fascist as being right wing. Anti-fa is fascist, so are some of the groups targeting right wing speeches that occurred. Fascist can be either right or left, seems like the left wants to disown the far left groups and call them right wing.

And I do understand your point about dangerous ideologies, but look what they are doing with masculinity. They are branding it toxic and confusing the issue so no one really knows what's good masculinity and what's so-called toxic masculinity anymore. It's so bad that psychologists have labeled traditional masculinity a mental illness, but traditional masculine models seek to channel a lot of the natural biological impulses that men have simply by virtue of being male.

If we're not careful, "extreme" could march down the same path of confusion.

Of course, but that’s what we agree on. Some of these folks are extreme In their own right.

If they want to focus on anti-semitic groups, dont leave out the democrats and the Israel hating leftists in Congress as well.

Ok, let's get the latest crackerbarrel drivel straight.

1. Antifa is a leftwing terrorist group
2. Everyone who disagrees with Nazi ideology is a Nazi
3. This is just a tool to silence the opposition
4. Asking for source material equals living under a rock
5. Antifa is the bigger thread because it's not a fringe group


"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false"?

- A well known CIA spook

And I've gotta admit it looks pretty complete from this side of the screen; 4 out of 4 and a pending rock question for the preppers in that bunker.

For the record: we're talking about the exceptional republic with their 2nd amendment here, but the overwhelming majority of our proud "Make It Great Again" Muricans in this very thread was busy twisting their pants, at least when it comes to socialism and Antifa, like the little minds with huge rifles they are.
And they have a point there. You can fight terrorism effectively with your security state if you want to, but you can't shoot a bunch of peaceful protesters for national security reasons without risking to have a revolution at your door the next day.

The CIA plot thickens.

On January 5, 2007, Thompson introduced H.R.1, "Implementing the 9/11 Commission Recommendations Act of 2007," the first bill of the 110th Congress. The bill, cosponsored by more than 100 House Members, provided for the implementation of the 9/11 Commission's remaining recommendations. It included provisions requiring major improvements in aviation security, border security, and infrastructure security; providing first responders the equipment and training they need; beefing up efforts to prevent terrorists from acquiring weapons of mass destruction; and significantly expanding diplomatic, economic, educational, and other strategies designed to counter terrorism. The bill had bipartisan support and passed 299–128 on January 9, 2007.

It had to be you again...and it had to be demonrats trying to once again "blame the right." I am sure they will once again put the SPLC in charge of labeling people as "rightwing extremists" due to their political leaning, and not because such people are violent... As a matter of fact, the SPLC under the Obama administration admitted that they don't label people as "rightwing extremists" based on whether or not they are violent, but rather on their political beliefs.

You were just having this discussion, I was reading it all


While I like idea, I'm worried its going to be seen as an attack on the other side. Hopefully his homeland security background makes him the right candidate to lead this.

I am quite proud of the GOP reaction to Steve King.

I hope we can focus on all hate groups and minimize their destruction.
Right, how well I remember ol “ crocodile tears” Pelosi whining in public about protesters in their Brooks Brothers outfits”!

The bigger question is:

Is this about eliminating "hate groups" or is this about silencing your political rivals? Given the track record of the Democrats from just this past 2 years alone, I'm gonna go with the latter.

This is something most republicans need to wake up to: criticizing the Israeli government for maltreatment of the Palestinians is NOT anti Semitic.

To say otherwise is either idiotic or dishonest.

Criticizing the Chinese government is not “anti sinitic.”

Criticizing the Cuban government is not racist against Hispanics...

Additionally, I have a number of Jewish friends and colleagues who criticize Israel.

ATS is a safe space for racists, neo nazis and bigots.
Any thread, with even slightest criticism of far right groups gets hijacked by Trump cult


Opposing left wing hate groups: Racist and bigoted.

Got it.


No.
Defending nazi filth on every thread = racist and bigoted.
If it walks like a duck.....


Who is defending a right wing hate group? All I see is the left defending hate groups. Those on the “right” in this thread call for investigating all hate groups...only the left seems to be not for that...wonder why.

Sounds ignorant...but if it walks like a duck.

And you think that certain believes are not full of spite and hate, like the holocaust denial for example? So you feel that should be ok unless they don't resolve to physical violence?

To be a Nazi belief in the following is required:

1. The Supremacy of the Aryan Race
2. A personal love and adoration for Adolf Hitler
3. The abolition of all political opposition
4. An end to individual free speech and press freedom
5. Territorial expansion through wars of conquest
6. The extermination of Jews, Communists, Gays, Slavics and those with hereditary physical or mental disabilities.

You'll notice the list does not include supporting Trump, wanting an end to unchecked immigration or a rejection of political correctness.
