Late Night: It’s Official – Right-Wing Terror Kills

Here’s something you will never, ever see on any evening TV news program, unless it’s something like Democracy NOW!:

Earlier this week, CNN reported [PW notes: On its website, not on TV] that, in America, people who follow far-right wing ideologies have been responsible for more killings than Islamic extremists since September 11.

CNN notes that, according to a count by the New America Foundation, “right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11” whereas “terrorists motivated by al Qaeda’s ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11.”

Oh yes, and 56% of all terror plots in the US from 1995 through 2012 were hatched by right-wing nutjobs.

Feel free to post this on your Facebook pages and otherwise irritate your wingnut relatives.

So what’s on your mind tonight?
