Right wing radicals; Right wing terrorism

The money quote, so to speak: what if, instead of yelling "Heil, Hitler!", the Kansas City white supremacist who shot three people dead this weekend had instead shouted "Allāhu Akbar!"?

You know the answer to that. There would've been a an enormous uproar--Terrorism!--and Dear Media would've been all over it like a cheap suit.

Instead, an odd silence. Just as a few years ago, when the DHS issued an analysis of these groups and warned they were gaining more recruits, they backed down after being met with the bleatings of Limbaugh, Malkin, et. al. Yet as Maddow shows, in recent years the right-wing extremists--the neo-Nazi groups and clinic bombers and right-wing seditionists--have committed significantly more deadly attacks against Americans, in America, than Islamic extremists have.

This is an important piece. Please watch and share it.


  1. Okay, I finally watched it. The editor in me thinks the segment could've been tightened and made more powerful, but overall it's right on.

    Of course in the U.S., the hysteria and paranoia over "Muslim Terrorists!" is constantly ginned up by the media and the powers-that-be. And likewise, the greater threat from rightwing nut-jobs is downplayed. Alas, I don't see it changing anytime soon.

  2. P.S. By the way, Peter Bergen's analysis at CNN contains all this info in readable as opposed to watchable form:

  3. Thank you!

    An odd silence indeed in the general tv, radio and newspaper coverage. Jewish families are terrified of course because if fascist murderers can get into a community centre and an old age home, they can get in anywhere. What next - a school? a kindergarten? a kosher restaurant?
