  • The Real Threat From Homegrown Terrorists

    In the last twelve months there has been a string of successful arrests of potential domestic terrorists with collections of bomb-making equipment as well as illegal weapons arsenals, in at least one case including antitank rockets. All were in possession of ideological tracts or videos of terrorist organizations. In the last twelve months, individuals associated with these domestic groups have murdered six law enforcement officers and several alleged plots to assassinate the President of the United States have been thwarted and its conspirators arrested.

    And none of these were Islamic extremists. These were all members of militant right-wing extremist anti-government groups.

    There have been domestic terror threats from Islamic extremist groups as well. The May shooting of two US servicemen in Little Rock, AK (in which one died), the thwarted alleged attacks on the Air National Guard in Newbury, NY and on Fort Dix, NY, and other alleged attacks and planned attacks in the last year by domestic Islamic extremists are nothing to sneeze at.

    But prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center, the overwhelming source of domestic terror attacks and deaths in the United States had been from the militant right. In the last twelve months the number of extremists and militant right-wing organizations, and the number of attacks planned and actually launched by their members, has increased dramatically. Here is a link to a recent report by the Southern Poverty Law Center on the alarming growth of these hate groups. Their memberships dwarf the numbers in domestic Islamic anti-government ...

    Some interesting debatable points here but in the end it suffices to merely re quote this: But prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center, the overwhelming source of domestic terror attacks and deaths in the United States had been from the militant right

    In other words it's a given we have had hatemongers and right wing extremists, anti-Semites, racists of all bents and on more occassions then you have offered here, to be subjective, left wing extremists as well. That's not an issue; and the presentation of it as such is not necessary. Unless of course you are an average ILA and need to bone up, finally, on entry level history of the nation.

    Because, also in the end, the focus here rightly or wrongly, is that the greater threat and significant numbers of casualties and future potential for the same, lies with Jihadists and their abilities to promote their lunacy. And that has been determined by the government en masse; counter to the analysis of an internal threat by SPLC; which remains in my opinion, a loosely affiliated cover for leftist, liberals when the mood and necessity suit them.


    And with that in mind i give the group this, for more reflection of the same lunacy. As reminders are constantly necessary.

      That is actually a fact.
