"They"re not jihadists. They are white, right-wing Americans, nearly all with an obsessive attachment to guns, who may represent a greater danger to the lives of American civilians than international terrorists."

http://www.latimes.com...

Their own poll showed that their readers didn't buy this bs. 96% said "no, Patriots do not pose a threat" according to those who read their bs propaganda article.

Why is nobody calling out their racism. Such racist remarks ought to have the whole nation outraged.

This isn't news to me. Geo, don't get yourself worked up dude. I used to get angry and try to argue these liberal zombies on WaPo, Huff Post and LA Times articles comments section, it's simply a battle you can't win. Even if 90% of them are ignoramuses, with 20 of them screaming in all caps rage at you all at once, it's impossible to get a word in edgewise. Just look at the comments sections, you'll see what I mean.

It restores a small iota of my previously discarded faith in humanity when I see that people didn't buy into this nonsense. In reality, both pose a negligible threat and are being used as bogeymen. Americans are around twice as likely to be killed by a falling vending machine than they are by a terrorist.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

However, I also don't doubt that everyone really thinks that Jihadists are more dangerous...

I do have doubts though that you've properly represented the article.. b/c you have a habit of getting carried away, and plain out being a fibber :P

Im fairly certain that being killed by a white guy with a gun in America is much likelier then being killed by an Al-Qaeda terrorist.... But if the LA Times is trying to specifically claim that right wing people are the only ones who are a part of this threat and not all americans in general, then that would make them almost as idiotic as infowars....

almost.....

Except that at least Infowars does investigative reporting and LA Times is just another cheerleader of the liberal political machine.

Did you read the report by the SPLC.

Their article is sourced, and the source is kinda interesting.

Patriot groups of exclusively white americans vowing to stop registering their guns, among other things - up 7%

General anti-black racism up 4% among all white americans since Obama became president (though, this always happens during recessions, so I don't believe it's a reaction to Obama...it's a reaction to people being angry, and then stupid).

The interesting part of the study, though, was that Anti-Immigrant Extremist groups. They fell by 90%. Guess no one cares about the "border fence" anymore (or realize what a stupid idea it is...)

ALSO INTERESTING are the C-Tard Wingnuts (conspiracy theorists) and their goofy assertion that the George HW Bush signed UN Sustainability Plan, Agenda 21, with it's ZERO MANDATORY PROVISIONS has become the latest crazy du jour of the radical right.

You people are f*cking nuts, and you wonder why you are in the minority...it's because most people aren't crazy.

This was my exact thought when I read the thread title. Fact is, most things are more danger to you as an American than Al Quaeda. Heck, this "Patriots" group probably is more danger to you because there are more of them, they're located in America and statistically some of them probably ARE violent criminals.

But if the LA Times is trying to specifically claim that right wing people are the only ones who are a part of this threat and not all americans in general, then that would make them almost as idiotic as infowars....

almost.....

Yup.

I am more afraid of being killed by an American gunman than I am of being killed by a Jihadist.

Infowariors are extremely diverse. However, the racist Democrats lure in minorities with free stuff. The Democrats pander to minorities for votes, yet they never get minorities out of poverty, they just help stay in poverty and get them further dependent on government.

General anti-black racism up 4% among all white americans since Obama became president (though, this always happens during recessions, so I don't believe it's a reaction to Obama...it's a reaction to people being angry, and then stupid).

That's rubbish. Who's gonna answer on a survey that they're racist.

The thing is Patriot groups aren't violent. When has a Patriot ever committed an act of terror. WACO and Oklahoma were false flags, in fact it was the FBI who was gunning down innocent people in WACO.

The Patriots will NOT strike first, just as George Washington did not strike first. The Federal government is planning a false flag to blame patriots.

ALSO INTERESTING are the C-Tard Wingnuts (conspiracy theorists) and their goofy assertion that the George HW Bush signed UN Sustainability Plan, Agenda 21, with it's ZERO MANDATORY PROVISIONS has become the latest crazy du jour of the radical right.

MSNBC's Ed Schultz is saying that Patriots are KKK, Confederate, Nazi, militant extremists.

Ed Schultz also says Bill O'Reilly and Eric Bolling are extreme. This pitiful.

You know what's extreme, a $17 trillion dollar debt, wasting money on goldfish democracy, roll-up beef jerky, turtle tunnels, cyborg squirrels, and foreign aid to the Muslim freakin Brotherhood Dictator in Egypt.

Obamacare death panels, that's extreme.

Really? Who are these people, and furthermore, where are they? Of what percentage of the population do they comprise?

Women, by and large, are democrats. Also, blacks tend to go democrat, and especially so with the 1st black presidential candidate, but latinos used to tend Republican. Y'all simply lost them with all this anti-latin racism.

This is why Bush was pushing so hard for a worker amnesty program. Latins are gonna be a huge (huger) voting block soon. Y'all share the whole Jesus and family stuff. If you weren't so blind, you could secure this demographic and kill the DNP in every presidential election for the next 50 years.

That's rubbish. Who's gonna answer on a survey that they're racist.

No one, but there are answers to questions that show a tendency toward it. Like I said, this happens during every recession. Chill out.

The interesting part of the study, though, was that Anti-Immigrant Extremist groups. They fell by 90%. Guess no one cares about the "border fence" anymore (or realize what a stupid idea it is...)

The thing is Patriot groups aren't violent. When has a Patriot ever committed an act of terror. WACO and Oklahoma were false flags, in fact it was the FBI who was gunning down innocent people in WACO.

What, in your mind, constitutes a patriot? I feel that I am one. Do you share this belief with me, or do you consider me unpatriotic?

The Patriots will NOT strike first, just as George Washington did not strike first. The Federal government is planning a false flag to blame patriots.

It doesn't matter...they'll always be painted in the media as if they do.

ALSO INTERESTING are the C-Tard Wingnuts (conspiracy theorists) and their goofy assertion that the George HW Bush signed UN Sustainability Plan, Agenda 21, with it's ZERO MANDATORY PROVISIONS has become the latest crazy du jour of the radical right.

Oh Jesus...Bush simply didn't have the media cover that Obama has. If he did, he would have done it as well. Don't kid yourself.

P.S. dear Geo, I wouldn't, if I were you, respond with a crack to the effect that my mentality is such as to be unable to identify a reasonable statement. Nope, not when you're the flaming conspiracist.
