Does U.S. Ignore Right-Wing Terror?
- Non-Muslim extremists have carried out 19 attacks since September 2001 killing 48 people
- Radical Muslims have killed 26 people in seven attacks, new report found
- The Charleston church massacre on June 17 is considered the worst non-Muslim attack since 9/11, with nine killed
- The report only tallies deaths that occurred on U.S. soil
http://democracynow.org – As thousands head to the South Carolina state Capitol to honor church victim massacre Rev. Clementa Pinckney, a new study finds white supremacists and other non-Muslim fanatics have killed far more people in the United States since 9/11 than Muslim extremists. According to the research center New America, 26 people have been killed in jihadist violence in the U.S. since 9/11, but 48 people have been killed in attacks by right-wing groups. Despite the intense focus by the Obama administration on Muslim communities, non-Muslims have carried out 19 terrorist attacks since September 11, 2001, while Muslims have been responsible for only seven. We are joined by two guests: Mike German, a fellow at NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice and former FBI agent specializing in domestic counterterrorism; and Bud Welch, whose daughter, Julie Marie Welch, was killed in the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building on April 19, 1995.
