    Not surprising to see, the DHS has reported the most acts of terror and biggest threat to america come from right wing extremists. Also not surprisingly those on the right are throwing a pissy fit, most notably Boner because the results didn't tell them what they want to hear from their propaganda that it's the muslims.

    "The gunman in the shooting at a Sikh temple over the weekend has been labeled a potential domestic terrorist — defined as one who incites politically-motivated violence against his or her own country. In Wade Michael Page’s case, that political motivation was likely white supremacy, a growing problem in the United States."

    "But when, in 2009, the Department of Homeland Security reported that white supremacy is the US’s biggest threat for domestic terror, it was met with harsh criticism. Conservatives blasted the department for defining terror threats too broadly, instead of focusing on potential Islamic terrorists. Then-House Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) was one of those who berated DHS, saying that they weren’t focusing on the real threats the US faces"

    "The report’s findings were congruous with previous studies that indicate right wing extremism is responsible for more instances of violence every year (with the exception of 2001, when the September 11th attacks happened) in the United States than Islamic extremist. It also tracks with the rise of hate groups in the US since 2000."

    Progressives like Stalin, Pol Pot, Marx, Hitler and Mao are the biggest mass murderers

    I didn't see a breakdown in that article of each individual act of domestic terrorism each year and the specifics as to how it was labeled as right wing or left wing extremism. Could you provide the link for that information?

    I agree that any group that is planning on hurting others for political reasons is a terror group. However, how the SPLC defines 'hate groups' certainly depends on the SPLC determination of 'hate':

    I think the ACLU would have some problems with the SPLC.

    Yes, anyone who's not a loyal Socialist/Progressive, must be a Terrorist. Come on America, can we give these assholes the boot in November or what? What a disgrace.

    The real disgrace is that you'd come on this board and shill for terrorists. Right wing guns and bombs kill just as surely as left wing ones. Nobody's calling everybody a terrorist, you sick shit.
