Despite what Donald Trump and many other politicians have told you, the major threat to America isn’t Muslim extremism. In fact, statistics show that the real danger lies with domestic extremists who aren’t of the Muslim faith.

The New York Times reported back in June that since Sept. 11, 2001, almost twice as many people have died at the hands of white supremacists and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims. Using data compiled by New America, a Washington Research center, a study found that 48 people have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim—including the mass killings in Charleston, S.C.—compared to the 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists. However, this does not factor in yesterday’s tragic shooting or less publicized incidents like the Las Vegas couple who murdered two police officers and left a Swastika on one of the bodies.

"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

The only stats that count are those killed by radical Islamic terrorists and "black on black." /sarc/

Killings by black Muslims is a two-fer!

I'd love to see how freaked out white America gets if various groups of African-Americans start their own Open Carry demonstrations. How about a peaceful protest march in Charlottesville of Black Lives Matter members carrying semi-automatics and Colt 44 magnums? Will the NRA come to their defense?

I think Phllando Castile can answer that question for you. Legal gun owner, did exactly what he was supposed to do, shot dead by police. NRA -crickets.

Reagan was all in favor of gun regulation when Black Panthers in Oakland started carrying. Remember Saturday Night Specials? They weren't half price drinks at the neighborhood bars.

Yes, I've made that reference in other threads here.

Of course just like voting rights, so many African-Americans have been caught up in the "justice" system that a high percentage can't legally carry firearms in their states. So police could confront such demonstrations saying that they were suspicious of the crowd. "They are all felons anyway, past or future".

That's a feature, not a bug. Just ask General Beauregard Sessions.

Sessions
