Numbers don’t lie …

Thank you Ten Bears. This is important information in a time when the right is trying to rewrite history and change reality to claim that Jan 6 was a peaceful protest while antifa and BLM are terrorist groups. May the truth win over the falsehoods. Hugs

From the New York Times morning mail

Over the past decade, the Anti-Defamation Leaguehas countedabout 450 U.S. murders committed by political extremists.

Of these 450 killings, right-wing extremists committed about 75 percent. Islamic extremists were responsible for about 20 percent, and left-wing extremists were responsible for 4 percent.

Nearly half of the murders were specifically tied to white supremacists:

As this data shows, the American political right has a violence problem that has no equivalent on the left. Andthe 10 victims in Buffalo this past weekendare now part of this toll. “Right-wing extremist violence is our biggest threat,” Jonathan Greenblatt, the head of the ADL, has written. “The numbers don’t lie.”

Gotta’ get down to it, their soldiers are cutting us down

  1. With a steady increase in gun ownership by members of minority groups as evidence of acts of self-defence the White Extremists are promoting an atmosphere and a potential series of events which will be far beyond their control.
    It is not too late to turn back from the possible march to Communal Violence but it requires a massive and sustained effort by the majority of Americans.

    1. Hello Roger. This is what the rabid right racists want. They want minorities to arm themselves and start shooting white people, especially white abusive cops. Their goal is a race war which they think they will easily win and put the blacks / minorities in their place. They would love to be able to turn white people against black by claiming the blacks are killing defenseless unarmed whites. Look at what the rabid right claims the BLM protests were, black people marauding through cities burning and looting them, destroying everything in their path while terrorizing white people and killing cops. It is wrong, it never happened, but the right puts that message out. Hugs

      1. There is a Catholic Minority in Northern Ireland Scottie. During the last era of Communal Violence that community gave rise to the Provisional IRA.
        Trust me the rabid right wing racists in your nation would have one hell of a shock when something comparable turned up on their doorsteps.
        All the necessary components are there.
        I am hoping the majority of Americans can manoeuvre The Ship from that ‘Fireberg’.
        When 20th / 21st communal violence breaks out it comes in all directions.
        The Racists and Hate Mongers will not have it all their own way like they did in decades before.

        1. Hello Roger. I admit I was not very informed during the time of that violence, and only seen the worst of the videos later. But I understand it was really bad neighbor against neighbor, terrorist actions against civilians, bombings, abuses by both sides against the people in custody, from what I seen it was a mini war based on religion.

          That could happen here the way things are going. The problem is small minorities are loud, crude, belligerent, willing to use violence to intimidate others to get their way, and think they are entitled to what they want regardless of how others feel. They will either start a religious war or a race war if we don’t find a way to stop them. But the Republican party is egging them on. Hugs

          1. It was a bad time Scottie.
            On the mainland unless you came from an area where sectarian tensions could still simmer; Scotland- Glasgow in particular; Liverpool-possibly; sympathies for both sides waned, particularly when the IRA started a bombing campaign on the mainland.
            Ill-feeling still remain. For instance you would be advised not to mention this subject in Birmingham which was hit one particular night in 1974.
            This is why I have kept mentioning over the past couple of years about the danger the USA could face. It will be multi-sided too, for what starts out as a two-sided conflict soon fractures over issues. There are several nations suffering that.
            If you want to shake people out of their complacency that it won’t happen near them, just mention Northern Ireland, or Lebanon (although that comparison is of another quality as it did involve conventional warfare- as did Syria). Just because the USA is Western and essentially still ‘white’ that does not mean it gets a free pass from the emotions which roil in the Human Heart.
            Best wishes to you and yours.
            Take care.
            Roger
