The suspected bomber operating in Austin, Texas has blown himself up when confronted by police. BBC
"He's thinking of taking some time to figure out what he wants to do...maybe a [religious] mission trip," his mother wrote.
In the blog called "Defining my Stance", he purportedly describes beliefs that "gay marriage should be illegal", opposition to abortion and why the sex offender registry should be eliminated.
In the blog, he defines himself as "a conservative".
He planted at least four bombs, killing two people - both black - and injuring others.

Re: Another one
At least the Synagogue shooter wasn’t a Trump supporter. He was still a rabid right-winger, though.
And racist violence against blacks is still a thing in Kentucky

Re: Left wing terroism
Disagreements don’t necessarily resolve in your favour.
I note also that by my estimate the few more in your article comes to about 30%. More, the shooting at the Pittsburgh Synagogue added 11 more to the Right Wing toll.

Re: Left wing terroism
So the message I’m getting from you is that Right Wing terrorism - and especially the racism behind it - should be minimised. But opposing racism is really bad.

Re: Left wing terroism
Or maybe I do get it. You are trying to play down Right Wing terrorism. You are attacking Antifa, despite the fact that they are clearly less focussed on anything that can reasonably be called terrorism.

Empty Threats - probably
Chris Cantwell the crying Nazi has threatened the total destruction by an army of fanatics after the murder conviction of James Fields.
On his own website he charmingly refers to lying Jew scum and claims that Fields was framed.

Another plot
BBC
A coastguard officer - a “white nationalist” planned a major attack, inspired by the Norwegian mass-murder Anders Breivik.
The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country," US District Attorney Robert Hur said in the court documents.

ADL report
pdf download
2018 was a particularly active year for right-wing extremist murders: Every single extremist killing ” from Pittsburgh to Parkland ” had a link to right-wing extremism.
2018, domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the U.S., a sharp increase from the 37 extremist- related murders documented in 2017, though still lower than the totals for 2015 (70) and 2016 (72). The 50 deaths make 2018 the fourth-deadliest year on record for domestic extremist-related killings since 1970.
Firearms remain the weapon of choice for extremists who kill. Guns were responsible for 42 of the 50 deaths in 2018, followed by blades or edged weapons.
Plenty more detail in the report for those who want it.
ABE
Interesting to compare this with Riverrat’s figures:
Right-wing extremists
are responsible for the vast majority of extremist-related murders over the last decade
Right-Wing Extremism (all movements): 73.3%
Left-Wing Extremism (including anarchists & black nationalists): 3.2%
Islamist Extremism: 23.4%
Note: Total deaths include both ideologically and non-ideologically motivated killings.

And in New Zealand
Christchurch shootings: 49 dead in New Zealand mosque attacks
49 people shot dead at two mosques. The Bangladesh cricket team were minutes away from one of the mosques. The attackers also seem to have attached bombs to cars in the area.

Re: Another Synagogue Shooting - In San Diego
By my understanding it’s not just Trump. The Republicans have been opposed to the FBI investigating far-right groups for some years. It’s “persecuting” “conservatives” it seems.

Re: Another Synagogue Shooting - In San Diego
Nobody said that either was a Trump supporter.
Now do you want to address what people have said or are you just going to keep hurling insults ?

Being too far to the Right even to support Trump doesn’t make him Left Wing.

HATING TRUMP IS LEFT WING, WHAT ELSE DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE?
It could be many things. In this case it’s a really bad case of Right Wing extremism.
quote:
IT DOMINATES THE FAKE NEWS LYING MEDIA AND THE ENTIRE LEFT STARTING EVEN BEFORE TRUMP GOT ELECTED.
I’m pretty sure that the mainstream media aren’t telling the truth just to spite Trump.
quote:
THE LEFT HAS NO OTHER MOTIVE THAN TO TRY TO DESTROY THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY.
That’s just silly. Of course there are other motives, like helping the American people.
quote:
YOU NEED TO WAKE UP. THIS IS NO LONGER AMERICA, THE LEFT IS ACTING LIKE A THIRD WORLD TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT TRYING TO DESTROY ITS OPPOSITION.
I think you mean that the “left” (which includes quite a few on the right) is stopping Trump from turning America into a third world tyrannical government. And that is one of the reasons for your anger.
