Well if you depend on nose picking, ass scratching Right wing blogs and news outlets for your info then there is NO such thing as right wing terrorism.
In doing my research into terrorism so that I can be better informed when I teach my class I have been looking into all aspects of the use of terror……even to the type of terror that few want to acknowledge…..home grown.
According to most of these mentally challenged people there is only one type of terrorism….and we know what that is….do we not?
It is as if some do not think that a red blooded American is capable of the barbarity of the act of terrorism…..an ignorant belief.
As the Las Vegas shootings show, right-wing extremism is real and on the rise. But for Republicans, better to focus on the Muslims.
Remember in 2009, right at the start of the Obama era, when then-Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano issued a report (PDF) entitled: “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”? The report was truly prescient. It alerted us to the rise of right-wing extremism, such as from white supremacist groups, and warned that unchecked, it could lead to violence.
How did Republicans respond? They went ballistic attacking the report. John Boehner was especially upset that Napolitano would use the term “terrorist” to “describe American citizens who disagree with the direction Washington Democrats are taking our nation,” adding, “using such broad-based generalizations about the American people is simply outrageous.”
Ignoring the facts does nothing to move the conversation forward…but that is probably what these “people” want….the conversation to be what they want it to be…..
A Terrorist is a terrorist…..and that includes the Right wing worms that commit the crimes. Terror knows no color….no gender……no religion…..keep in mind that it is a tactic not an entity.
