Because i'm not allowed to have an opinion now? I wanted a fair poll, i didn't create a fair poll. Should of taken more time, but to suggest i purposely skewed the options to achieve a favourable outcome is pathetic.

Yet we're just beating around the bush, if you think russia or anyone else has committed more atrocities on such a level.

you've confused yourself.....I pointed out that if you wanted to use your time frame than your poll would have to include a number of the same actors that have used terrorism for decades.....what you put and didn't put put in your poll is pretty revealing.......it is of course why your poll drew comments like;

you mean the 1,000,000 figure you used was just a number you made up to throw into the discussion? .....now that's hilarious.

Corporations and domestic ultra right-wing CONservative/Republican/Libertarian end of the world prepping-type extremists are far more dangerous than a bunch of guys living in a cave on the other side of the world.

In the last several years in the United States, there were more terrorist attacks and plots from right-wing extremists than any other group (i.e. followers of Islam).

Which part redefines the word terrorism?

Quote:
Per dictionary.com:


ter·ror·ism [ter-uh-riz-uhm]
noun

1. the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.

2. the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.

3. a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government.


These right-wing nuts use violence and threats to strike fear in others in an attempt to get their way. They fit the standard definition of "terrorist".

Exactly.

Which is why he didn't respond to my question.

Isn't that interesting. The blog you link to only mentions one religion when it lists the names of the Board of Governors. Why do you think this makes a difference? Please expand on your thinking here. Or perhaps it has something to do with a hate agenda?

UPDATE: Here is a good link instead ... ;-)

---

I should have read the blog to the end. It's an even more hateful blog than I had realized. They make a point about an over-reperesentation of a particular religion. Forgot to mention that even though women make over 50% of the population they are under-represented (5 out of 16). Forgot to mention that there is only one visible minority out of 16 members. etc etc. Yep, it's a hate site... so why link to it?

The link in the quote in your post is to an anti-Semitic, white supremacist website.

I know that I have absolutely no right to ask this...but would you consider deleting the link from the quote.

I certainly understand why you might want to leave it there, and I mean no offenses to you.

You were right... so I changed the link. Thanks for pointing it out.

Following a previous link led me to this interesting study on far-right violence hosted on the USMA (West Point) website.
