Right-wing extremism is a greater threat to America than Islamic terrorism
How many al-Qaeda terrorists are in Congress,compared to the number of right-wing extremists? How many al-Qeada cells are in America, compared to the number of right-wing extremists? How many al-Qaeada terrorists have their own talk shows, compared to the number of right-wing extremists? How many al-Qaeda terrorists disrupt town halls and Presidential speeches, compared to the number of right-wing extremists?

It goes on....

4. *shrug* I can not deny that fact.
Our nation has suffered far FAR more losses at the hands of its own fascist extremists.

It is true. Take ten minutes to research the REAL NUMBERS associated with domestic compared to international terrorism.

10. They Are But A Disease Of The Skin, Sir: The Racist Right Is A Disease Of The Heart
The former can do only superficial harm; the latter can cripple and kill the country.

12. Yes. What you say is true.
That USA "disease of the heart" has also affected humanity across the world.

We simply can NOT allow that minuscule disease to stand OUT compared to the health and compassion of the rest of us.

14. Actually--it's spot on, unlike your spelling
It is al-Qa'ida.

The right wing is a proximate threat and much more dangerous.

17. I always love when people
correct spelling. I typed it fast without checking. It isn't, as you imply, a reflection of my intelligence, or of your superior brains. It was simply a mistake.

As for the right wing fear mongering, they feel the same way about you and the rest of left, and this division in America is what will bring us down.

19. Glad to feed your passion. Your comparison that al-Qa`ida will
torture and kill us implying that the right wing won't ignores their actions thus far against a variety of folks...

Analogy was apt.

20. How far back in history are you going to go
to try and make your "analogy" valid?

11. Absolutely right
Our home grown right-wingers are a far greater threat than cave dwellers with box cutters could ever be, as they've been slowly eroding our freedoms for 60 years.

13. Al-Qaeda requires travel time
They also require passports, help once they get into the country, and ways of getting cash here to operate. The right is already here, they are rich, they control an entire cable news channel and most AM Radio stations, they control a huge number of Churches and their ministers.

Yes, Al-Qaeda is small change, petty criminals compared to Mafia bosses.

16. If it was not for
right wing extremism we would not have a problem with Islamic terrorism.

18. Exactly!
Remember the cries of "No War for Monica" back in '98?
We could have stopped these guys if the Rethugs weren't so hung up on blowjobs. But no...

The 9/11 commission can assign blame to Bin Laudin all they want. PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY falls on the Republicans, the so-called FAMILY VALUES crowd. They even supported the Taliban, in a slight degree. Anything for demonization of sex...

next time Repubs say they'tr tough on defense, remind them of '98.
