This isn’t really a surprise, they’ve been the top extremist threat here for a long time. I imagine it will only continue given the current environment.

2 steps forward, 3 steps back. It's fucked up that there are so many of these assholes still around today, but I guess they'll keep going strong as long as they keep having presidential endorsement.

Especially since the current administration pulled the plug on investigating white supremacist groups and refocused everything solely on Islamic extremism. An odd move, to say the least. If you think about it, these white supremacist groups have a lot in common with terror groups like ISIS.

let's not forget the other skin pigment crime already going on in so many places, such as Chicago and so forth. this isn't new, this has been happening long before civil rights movement even came to full height and it's not going to end any time soon either. there will always be racism as long as people are lazy to believe said racism. once they get past skin pigment they'll find something new to be racist about. not to mention when the largest cult out there is made up of Christians, then yes, even more situations will arise. however some of those facts weren't entirely correct, but it is true, crime, as a whole is up, not just skin pigment crimes or crimes on crimes of same skin pigment. the world has entered dark times where violence has been programmed into the minds of many and it's acceptable. it's only going to get worse as long as people pay attention (or don't realize, accept, etc) to the subliminal messages in things.

The cynical part of me wants to say good. If they go off and actually attempt some sort of bullshit we can finally round them up and lock them in a hole somewhere. There's really no excuse for one of the most advanced nations on the planet to still be tolerating this sort of shit in 2018.

I'm trying to look for the "white supremacists were responsible for more than half of the 34 fatalities linked to domestic extremists of all stripes last year, claiming 18 lives in 2017" source. Can you source it?

The link to the source for that statement is embedded in that sentence in the article...

Yeah I'm looking for the source of that data on that graph. It just says ADL, I was hoping for some tabled data and some definitions but I'm still looking through it all.

Edit: Finally found it.

Also according to this graph it was on the decline for 2017 (In the absence of gun shooting spree related incidents apparently)



I don't even agree with many of the people they have allocated as domestic terrorists and some of the charges still haven't been prosecuted in a court of law.

What do you expect when there is such a big attack on white people going on at the moment?

Even though i call bullshit or at least exageration anyways.

On a side note;


Iam not posting that to be racist iam posting it because its dam true. Ooh white supremacy is so bad so lets all flock to white countries. LMAO.

EDIT: Going to take a wild guess that a white person reported this? lol

why not post a counter argument instead of running off and reporting?

I'm not the one that reported it by why not try posting an actual argument instead of offensive bullshit you know is against the rules in the first place? Seems like it would save everyone some trouble.

why is it offensive though? i mean the animation itself is a tad old fashioned but the message shouldn't be. Not when its accurate.

EDIT: Black supremacist violence is on the rise in South Africa!(Zimbabwe all over again) ,but nobody cares?
It's much worse than what goes on in America.
