New Study: White Americans are the Biggest Terrorist Threat in America

This is some interesting news today.

A study by the New America Foundation has note that White Americans are the biggest terror threat in the United States. The research group looked at the attacks from Sept. 11, 2001 and according to their findings, these attacks came from radical anti-government groups or white supremacists.

Here's more
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.

This is why I hate gentrification . It seems the whites bring their goddamn hate with and make some people miserable . There is no difference between ISIS and the skinheads except ISIS is more smarter and deadlier. That said I guess you can agree with me that ISIS is here in America .
