Debunking a myth

I recently read an article titled “You Are More Than 7 Times As Likely To Be Killed By A Right-Wing Extremist Than By Muslim Terrorists”.1

First things first the picture used in the post is one of the KKK, I don’t know if they still teach this in school but news flash the KKK was democrat!!!

The historian Elaine Frantz Parsons describes the membership2:

Lifting the Klan mask revealed a chaotic multitude of antiblack vigilante groups, disgruntled poor white farmers, wartime guerrilla bands, displaced Democratic politicians, illegal whiskey distillers, coercive moral reformers, sadists, rapists, white workmen fearful of black competition, employers trying to enforce labor discipline, common thieves, neighbors with decades-old grudges, and even a few freedmen and white Republicans who allied with Democratic whites or had criminal agendas of their own. Indeed, all they had in common, besides being overwhelmingly white, southern, and Democratic, was that they called themselves, or were called, Klansmen.

To address the second issue, The shooting in colorado at a planned parenthood. The shooter, Robert Lewis Dear, was not a republican he was registered as a “unaffiliated female”. Yes his gender is listed as female. It is also important to note that Mr. Dear also has priors, And at the time of this writing there has been no motive found for his shooting nor has the planned parenthood been determined to be his intended target.3

And as for the videos you can watch them here http://www.breitbart.com/?s=planned+parenthood

The article in question also classifies Neo-Nazisvand similar groups as right-wing but here is a description of Neo-Nazi4

There are several neo-Nazi groups in the United States. The National Socialist Movement (NSM), with about 400 members in 32 states,[156] is currently the largest neo-Nazi organization in the United States.[157] After World War II, new organizations formed with varying degrees of support for Nazi principles. The National States’ Rights Party, founded in 1958 by Edward Reed Fields and J. B. Stonercountered racial integration in the Southern United States with Nazi-inspired publications and iconography.

Notice the word socialist last time I checked that was more of a democrat thing, paging Bernie Sanders, but really what is a socialist?5

The socialist political movement includes a diverse array of political philosophies that originated amid the revolutionary movements of the mid-to-late 1700s out of general concern for the social problems that were associated with capitalism.[10] In addition to the debate over the degree to which to rely on markets versus planning, the varieties of socialism differ in the type of social ownership they advocate, how management is to be organized within productive institutions, and the role of the state in constructing socialism.[3][10]

One of the best examples of socialism was the U.S.S.R. (oh by the way the glorious Lenin is quoted as saying “socialism’s ultimate goal is communism”).

Now let’s talk about Muslim Extremists. the Quran tells all muslims to kill all unbelievers,

Quran (2:191-193)“And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing…

but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful.   And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.  But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

Quran (2:244)“Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”

Quran (2:216)Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

Quran (3:151)“Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority”. 

Quran (4:74)“Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

Quran (4:76)“Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Quran (4:89)“They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Quran (4:95)“Not equal are those of the believers who sit (at home), except those who are disabled (by injury or are blind or lame, etc.), and those who strive hard and fight in the Cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and their lives above those who sit (at home). Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight, above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward ” 

Quran (5:33)“The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

there are many many more verses saying the same thing kill, kill, kill. What’s that about a religion of peace? by the way there are approximately 1.57 billion muslims in the world and here are some stats on terrorism.7
