Skip to comments.Mother Jones: 'Right-Wing Extremism' Killed More Since 9/11 Than Islamic Terror
Posted on 04/26/2013 2:36:34 AM PDT by markomalley
On Wednesday, Mother Jones ran an article making a shocking claim: more Americans have been killed by conservative terrorists than by Islamic terrorists since September 11, 2001. While America has been fixated on the threat of Islamic terrorism for more than a decade, all but a few domestic terror plots have failed, the article explained. Between September 11, 2001, and the end of 2012, there were no successful bomb plots by jihadist terrorists in the United States . [R]ight-wing extremists killed 29 people during those 11 years.
But is it true?
The Mother Jones piece is based on a study by the New America Foundation and Syracuse Universitys Maxwell School. But that study routinely labels non-right-wing murderers right-wingers, and labels basic crimes involving murder terrorist attacks.
Here is their complete list of rightwing terrorist attacks, with number of killed in parentheses:
The list does not include the Beltway snipers (11 killed, including a 2002 shooting of a Tucson man); Mohammed Ali Alayed, who slashed a Jewish friends throat after reportedly undergoing a religious revival; Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, who used his SUV to attack students (9 injured) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in revenge for the deaths of Muslims worldwide; the list goes on. The list also does not include honor killings (the equivalent to the George Tiller assassination), or random murders involving Muslims (the equivalent of half the items on the rightwing terrorist attacks list.
Naturally, the study does not bother to list left-wing terrorists.

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!
Mother be wrong. . . . . .
What else can one expect from a Marxist/Leninist publication?
It is maybe as hilarious as the old Radio Albania.
see my tagline
There are lies, damned lies, statistics, and democrat talking points.

Naturally. What else should we expect under 0’s watch. He will go down in history as being the first Black President, the Worst President, and the Anti-Christ all at the same time.

I really would like to know why Brietbart or one of the other Conservative outlets does not do an in-depth investigative multi-part/in depth piece on how often the media has lied over the years, in what direction, with full examples and with names named.
Then push it hard and do not back off. And I mean do NOT back off. Not the occasional story that we all see and the genpub ignores. Make it so thorough and naming so many leftists in the media that it can’t be.
And I mean examples of left BS that has hurt the victim groups. The stories ignored/dropped/buried (Africa/Aids, Homelessness under a Dem president/ Black unemployment and promises etc.
Sure the MSM will their spin. But since people are questioning them and the Dems more by the day, the ‘C’SM might wanna strike while the iron is hot and drive the narrative for a change.
Might even get results.
LEFT-WING EXTREMISM: The Current Threat
From a 2001 report: https://www.fas.org/irp/world/para/left.pdf
None of these killers were members of the National Rifle Association. None of them claimed to be born-again Christians.
There’s a 188 cases of Islamist terrorism that the New America Foundation and Syracuse’s Maxwell School have found in the United States since September 11.
If one’s reads the article, it’s clear that most of what MJ reports as “right wing” is not “right wing” in any meaningful sense, and many of the incidents have no political motivation at all (for example, one clown who killed somebody because a dog peed on his lawn).
But the purpose of the MJ article is not to report facts, it’s to give cover - within week, bozo’s like Juan Williams and Bill Maher will be arguing that there’s published data that right-wing terrorists have killed more people than Islamists, and if they’re debating anyone with any sense, those folks will not have wasted their lives reading crap in Mother Jones, and are unlikely to have assimilated all of the info in the Breitbart piece.
I believe many of these studies they tout ar in the mid of one person who writes the article and makes up the garbage they write themselves.
It’s really quite easy for a Journalist to site an article and facts they make up themselves.If they really want a study they can go to any socialist-Marxist University and ask any Communist Professor for one ,and they will gladly make one up.
Well that link totally locked up my PC.
Those are great points, and worth repeating. One of the reasons why I don’t like seeing Islam referred to as a “dangerous cult” is that I know the left puts the Catholic Church in the same category. Islam is absolutely dangerous in terms of violence (in a way that Catholics are not), but to the left we are equally dangerous.
I’m certain the American Left has done much more damage to our country than all of the Muslim terrorists combined, through their control of the government, the classrooms, and our media. There is no doubt in my mind; heck, we wouldn’t have allowed many of our terrorists into this country without the pressure from the left to do so. The WASP way of life is viewed as the biggest danger by the left (and I’m not a WASP).
You’re right. Thanks.
The article may be right. The confusion is in the accepted definition of the political spectrum, left and right. These people, MJ included, are fascists disguised as liberals. They want government rule (totalitarianism), they want indoctrination, they live in a world of extreme propaganda. They are fascists, they are “right-wing” by their own definition of the political spectrum. They just want you to believe that are not, and that right-wing and Islamic terror are separated, when they are the same thing.
Lemmie see now.................
One one side, 45-50 MILLION dead babies. (Add approx 3500 daily to that appalling number.)
On the other...................................crickets.
Maybe gangsters are right wing extremists now...??
Just another Mother load.
“Mother Jones?” Please....
If MJ magazine DIDN’T make comments like that, I’d be getting worried.
When a journalist writes “some believe” or according to some” you can believe odds favor that ‘some’ are the other journalists in the office. As I spent over a decade in the industry, I speak from lots of experience with this.
What there should be is a site for ex right wing journalists to tell our stories. If only I had the ability/financing....Trust me folks, it would be fascinating reading for the genpub who think Journalists are paragons of integrity.
They were talking out their mid sections again.
This is a publication with readers who will accept anything they say because they say it. They would have loved Stalin, expecially on the day he inisisted that the invaders from the west were British, not German.
“Naturally. What else should we expect under 0s watch. He will go down in history as being the first Black President, the Worst President, and the Anti-Christ all at the same time.”
And the most divisive president in American history this side of Lincoln.
“Keith Luke (2): A white supremacist broke into an apartment, raped a woman, and shot two more people in 2009. He planned to attack a Jewish synagogue. His motive: killing nonwhite people. That is not right-wing. That is white supremacist. But the left always lumps in neo-Nazi types with the right, despite the fact that the Nazi movement was left-wing in orientation.”
A fact that libtards simply can not or will not accept.
Add: Jared Loughner

Yes, another registered DemonRAT and 0bamao campaign worker.
You forgot the moon biscuit who attacked the headquarters of the Family Research Council last year. He was a pro-homo America-hater, which makes him either a typical Democrat or a New York senator.

I thought of him, but he didn’t kill anybody.
However, the fact that he wanted to kill everybody at FRC is good enough to include him in the list, which I will.
MJ is just another comedian dressed in a grandma suit tryin to get laughs... don’t they know that’s boring already?
Don't forget the conspiracy fruitcakes.
Oh you mean my former coworkers writing the articles? ;)
probably... but there are others out there (cue X-Files music) hehe
Bookmarked for later reference.
Abortion has killed more in one day than 9/11. Add it up annually, and it’s true genocide, in the Hitler, Stalin, Mao wet dreams style genocide.
Lord, come soon!
Ah, I see...
It all depends on how you define/ignore “Islamic terror”
and classify anything you want to as “right wing attacks”.
Just another Marxist Rag.
Never forget that gangs are natural Bammy supporters.
Don’t forget Muhammad and Malvo.
> Dont forget Muhammad and Malvo.
They were Moslems, but were they Democrats or Leftists?
I believe that John was a ‘rat.
> I believe that John was a rat.
I will check.
But they were Jihadis none the less.
There should be a table constructed that checks off whether they were jihadis and/or demonRATS. I think that would be more constructive. We would be able to get more names in such a table.
