Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 13, 2018

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. Researchers and journalists for the news site Quartz said they used data compiled by the Global Terrorism Database that has tabulated terrorist events around the world since 1970. The database is supported by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), affiliated with the University of Maryland. "A Quartz analysis of the database shows that almost two-thirds of terror attacks in the (United States) last year were tied to racist, anti-Muslim, homophobic, anti-Semitic, fascist, anti-government, or xenophobic motivations," its posting says. The remaining attacks, the web site said, "were driven by left-wing ideologies ... and Islamic extremism."

The remaining 1/3 of U.S. terrorism tied to right-wing moderates.

Exactly. The republican base would be the hard core islamists if they were born in the mideast.

It's the same brain chemistry that reacts to change and progress with fear and anger.

Add them together you get just over 2/3 - they just broke them out to shut the alt-right up.

Left wing extremists are coddled while their black masks are hand washed in environmentally safe detergents.

Actually, no. The data is from the Global Terrorism Database put together at the University of Maryland.

Make up your mind.

Left wing extremists are bad and violent.
Left wing extremists are wimps using environmentally safe detergents.

Which is it?

Left wing pacifists are subject to random shootings by police and national guard for asking for change. Armed left wing extremists are mowed down with automatic weapons for demanding change. Armed right wing extremists get a pass every time and their day in court, because they are just like the police and military, which are vital to maintaining the status quo.

Did you want to explain why I'm wrong?

Somewhere there is a tree whose sole purpose is to replace the oxygen you breath. You should find that tree and apologize.

Left-wing terrorism dried up when people gave up on communism at the end of the cold war.
