All of the extremist killings in the US in 2018 had links to right-wing extremism

Every extremist killing in the US in 2018 had a link to a right-wing extremism, according to a new report from the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism.

The report zeroes in on incidents such as the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, in February 2018, and the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in October 2018.

There were at least 50 extremist-related killings in the US in 2018, according to the report, making it the fourth-deadliest year on record for domestic extremist-related killings since 1970.

"The extremist-related murders in 2018 were overwhelmingly linked to right-wing extremists," the report states. "Every one of the perpetrators had ties to at least one right-wing extremist movement, although one had recently switched to supporting Islamist extremism. White supremacists were responsible for the great majority of the killings, which is typically the case."

Guns were involved in the vast majority of the killings - 42 of out 50.

4. Yeah, why believe a group that looked into the matter

Your gut tells you that there's no way this is the case.

It's LEFTY that's violent.

No need to look at facts or anything like that.

7. no comprehension of facts

Anyone who dismisses every and anything that they don't want to hear because it's all "left wing propaganda" has a greater issue comprehending facts than most "leftists."

And your very use of the word "leftists" tells me that you've succumb to the same sort of propaganda you claim to decry.

11. If you can read that story

And not see it for what it is, then yes you are a leftist.
There is no other word that better defines who and what you are.

12. The article in the OP is not a test for one being or not being a leftist

Your reply does nothing but further prove my point.

You're so immersed in "conservative thought" that anyone who isn't as or more immersed in "conservative thought" is a fucking leftist.

13. Actually no,

People who are so ignorant that they are totally incapable of independent thought are more often than not leftists.
Do you need a mirror or something?

8. Curious but.....

....are "extremist" murders worse somehow that just regular 'old garden variety murder?

Or is this is just a guilt by the most tenuous association possible thing?

'Cause there were a total of 17,284 reported murder and non-negligent manslaughter cases in the U.S. in 2017.

But I suppose those aren't on the ADL's radar or, not worthy of compilation.

16. Sorry - I don't buy it.

We have scandals from the top people in government right down to the guy with the corner store.

Those with power take what they want - left, right, centrist, whatever . . .

Hell - Us North Americans took over the whole CONTINENT once our European ancestors discovered it.

And the Left and Right were holding hands . . . .

They still are

& laughing
