According to the New America Foundation, as of April of this year, 21 people had been killed in the United States in attacks motivated by Islamic extremism since 9/11.
Meanwhile, 34 people had been killed by right-wing extremist attacks during the same time period.
The fact is, right-wing extremism is on the rise, it's dangerous, and it's now a major terrorist force in America.
Right-wing extremist and militia groups aren't the fringe groups they used to be -- now Fox so-called News makes members of these groups like the ones who showed up at the Bundy Ranch into media stars and heroes.
But while the facts speak for themselves, the mainstream media (CNN, MSNBC, FOX, The New York Times etc...) refuses to acknowledge the truth.
Can you imagine how outraged the media would be right now if Dennis Marx had been a 48-year-old brown Muslim guy?
Fox So-Called News would be calling for heads to roll if the Las Vegas shooters had been a Muslim couple.
And, news coverage would've been wall-to-wall if Frazier Glenn Miller had screamed out "Allah Akbar" instead of "Heil Hitler."
Instead, you have Conservative pundits like Sean Hannity running around, arguably egging on right-wing extremists.
In the nearly 13 years since 9/11, al Qaeda has not successfully pulled off another terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
But right-wing extremists have.
The first step to solving a problem is always being able to admit that you have it.
It's time for the media to start calling attacks like those in Las Vegas, Cumming, Georgia, and Kansas City what they are: right-wing-extremist-fueled terrorist attacks.
