White Americans Are Biggest Terror Threat in U.S.: Study



White Americans are the biggest terror threat in the United States, according to a study by the New America Foundation. The Washington-based research organization did a review of “terror” attacks on US soil since Sept. 11, 2001 and found that most of them were carried out by radical anti-government groups or white supremacists.

Almost twice as many people have died in attacks by right-wing groups in America than have died in attacks by Muslim extremists. Of the 26 attacks since 9/11 that the group defined as terror, 19 were carried out by non-Muslims. Yet there are no white Americans languishing inside the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. And there are no drones dropping bombs on gatherings of military-age males in the country's lawless border regions.

Attacks by right-wing groups get comparatively little coverage in the news media. Most people will struggle to remember the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin that killed six people in 2012. A man who associated with neo-Nazi groups carried out that shooting. There was also the married couple in Las Vegas who walked into a pizza shop and murdered two police officers. They left a swastika on one of the bodies before killing a third person in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Such attacks are not limited to one part of the country. In 2011, two white supremacists went on a shooting spree in the Pacific Northwest, killing four people.

More from GlobalPost: Turns out people get angry when you say white Americans are terrorists, too

Terrorism is hard to define. But here is its basic meaning: ideological violence. In its study, the New America Foundation took a narrow view of what could be considered a terror attack. Most mass shootings, for instance, like Sandy Hook or the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting — both in 2012 — weren't included. Also not included was the killing of three Muslim students in North Carolina earlier this year. The shooter was a neighbor and had strong opinions about religion. But he also had strong opinions about parking spaces and a history of anger issues. So that shooting was left off the list.


Radical Christian terrorism. Someone needs to call this exactly what it is, since language seems so important to some. These are mostly radical Christian terrorists.

So basically, if you spread pro-Trump memes last year, you were promoting Russian propaganda

So basically, the way I see it, if you spread pro-Trump memes last year, or fought for him online, you were willfully, ignorantly promoting Russian propaganda that was intended to divide us as a nation.

You helped Russia make our democracy less workable, and you were complicit in subverting our democratic process. The Trump Trolls were unknowingly used as operatives to disseminate fake news and bs memes created by Russians that were intended to undercut Hillary's campaign.

If you were duped, you are no less culpable. The stench of treason is in the air, and it will cling to you. Trump supporters are all trolls and bots, or worse, willing agents working for a foreign adversary. That is how I see it. Trump supporters were duped into working as agents for another country's interests. They are quislings. Collaborators. Benedict Arnolds, the lot of them. Ignorance is no excuse.

Best Twitter graphic meme on the budget

I want my PBS. I want art. I want investments in science & green energy. I cannot support a draconian austerity budget that hurts the people.

FBI to brief Graham, Whitehouse on Trump warrants: Graham
BY KATIE BO WILLIAMS - 03/15/17 03:01 PM EDT

The FBI has told Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) that it will brief them in response to their demand for any surveillance warrant applications for President Trump, Graham said Wednesday.

“We were informed by the FBI just a few minutes ago that they would be responding to our letter with a classified briefing to the chair and ranking member,” Graham said at the outset of a Senate hearing on Russian interference in elections worldwide.

He provided no specific date for the briefing. FBI Director James Comey is on the Hill Wednesday to brief the chairman and ranking member of the full Judiciary Committee, Sens. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Graham and Whitehouse, who head the subcommittee that has oversight over the FBI, last week sent a letter to Comey and acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente, asking for any warrant application or court documents tied to potential legal wiretapping of the Trump campaign, Trump or Trump Tower.
The resolution comes after Graham fired a warning shot to the FBI on Tuesday, telling reporters that the bureau was about to "screw up big time" if they didn't respond to his letter.
