According to a recent report, deaths attributable to so-called “right-wing domestic terrorists” have increased by more than 300% since President Donald Trump took office in 2017.
A database compiled by the Type Media Center’s David Neiwert and based on government interpretations of ideological motivations showed that at least 87 people were “killed by far-right terrorists” during Trump’s first three years in office. That number swells to 145 dead in three years if the 58 people killed by Stephen Paddock during the Las Vegas massacre in October 2017 are added in.
From 2013 through 2016, “right-wing” terrorists in the United States killed some 46 people.
Conversely, Neiwert notes, only 17 people have died due to domestic Islamic terrorism over the past three years. Left-wing domestic terrorism barely registered during the time span; only four such deaths occurred in the past three years.
This is particularly important information to have since currently Trump and his cronies are trying to smear peaceful protesters as Left Wing terrorists in order to energize his base and bring out more conservative voters in November.
The facts are that the real terrorism in this country is most often committed by 2nd Amendment infatuated, Fox News intoxicated, sister fuckers who think the country is going to hell in a handbasket weaved in an underwater basket weaving class on the Berkley campus by a professor trying to turn all of our children into communists.
