Are There More Far Right Wing Attacks in America Than Violent Jihadist Attacks?
The New York Times says we should fear right-wingers more than Muslims

In the aftermath of the Orlando Nightclub Massacre I heard a number of Muslim apologists and their sheep bleat this bit of nonsense: "More Americans have been killed by white supremacists than Muslim extremists since 9/11." So where did they get this from? A government study? An analysis by unbiased media investigators? Or was it this news article:
New York Times, 24 June 2015, Homegrown Extremists Tied to Deadlier Toll Than Jihadists in U.S. Since 9/11
WASHINGTON — In the 14 years since Al Qaeda carried out attacks on New York and the Pentagon, extremists have regularly executed smaller lethal assaults in the United States, explaining their motives in online manifestoes or social media rants.
But the breakdown of extremist ideologies behind those attacks may come as a surprise. Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, including the recent mass killing in Charleston, S.C., compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.
So let's go to that source quoted by the Times - here's the updated count as of today (click on image for complete screenshot):
Wait a minute. The Times article everyone is quoting alleges that twice as many people were killed by non-Muslim extremists (48) than by radical Muslims (26), what's up? Well, simply this: the site pointed to by the NY Times has since updated the totals to include the recent Orlando Night Club Shooting (49 killed), the 2015 San Bernardino Shooting (14 killed) and the 2015 Chattanooga Shootings (5 killed) and now says something else altogether - almost twice as many people have been killed by Muslims than by non-Muslims - 94 to 48.
Of course, all our Muslim-ass-licking friends always ignore those killed on 9/11 otherwise they wouldn't be able to attempt to make the silly claim that there have been more Americans killed in non-Muslim attacks in the past two decades than Islam-inspired killings.
Despite this update by New America, we expect liberals, Muslims, and President Obama and his minions to continue to quote the un-updated, now-inaccurate Times article, rather than the original source, so as to misinform the American public, as usual.
Moral: You should be more worried about Muslims than non-Muslims.
Here is the true breakdown after 9/11:
Out of 2 million Muslims in America - 94 terror-related murders.
Out of 316 million non-Muslims in America - 48 terror-related murders.
Conclusion: If you do the math - Americans are 310 times more likely to be killed by a Muslim terrorist than by a non-Muslim terrorist. That's a little different than the NY Times would have you believe, eh?
