Three men face domestic terrorism charges for allegedly plotting to bomb an apartment complex occupied by Somali immigrants in southwest Kansas, the US Department of Justice said Friday.

The men had talked about filling four vehicles with explosives and parking them at the four corners of the apartment complex in Garden City to create a large explosion, the DOJ said in a news release.

About 120 Somali immigrants live in the complex , CNN affiliate KWCH reported, and acting US Attorney Tom Beall said one of the apartment units served as a mosque.

The trio, members of a militia group that calls itself The Crusaders, wanted to "wake people up," the DOJ said. They were stockpiling weapons and planned to release a manifesto after the explosion, Beall said at a news conference.



This attack was thwarted a few days ago.

These guys vote republican. They wanted to murder about 120 people. These guys actually wanted to do something that really is straight out of the ISIS playbook.


They didn't actually do it though. Just 3 idiots talking. Should we dig up the weather underground? All the other violent act's from the 60's all the looting and rioting and arson committed by democrat voters? We are talking about vast mobs of idiots breaking laws because they don't like how the political system works. You are talking about 3 idiots in Kansas.

The democrat presidential candidate that was nominated has probably committed more crimes than all the other presidents combined. And you have the nerve to say the democrats are not a haven for criminals and thugs? lol

Yeah, if he was talking about 1 idiot in North Carolina, then he may have a point, but 3 idiots in Kansas? Pffft.

It wasn't just 3 idiots talking. It was 3 people who were planning for months and fully committed to bombing a building, committing a terrorist attack that could have killed well over 100 people.


A lot of conservatives are violent minded and commit acts of violence and murder. It isn't just liberals and democrats. People are people. They can be good and they can be bad and wherever you go, you find people of so many labels being violent and harmful to others.

So when a fire bombing happens at an empty office, it is "This is what the democrats are."


When three republican terrorists are stopped from their attack that could have killed 100+ people, it is just "3 idiots talking".


Please don't ever say you aren't a biased person on these matters.

If democrats suddenly lost the ability to lie, cheat and steal, they would never win another election.

See, you shouldn't believe stuff like that. That democrats lie and cheat to win elections are lies and you are believing it and many Americans are believing it and this sort of stuff is only dividing America further.


Btw, the GOP is losing a lot of votes because they pander mostly to white male Americans. GOP will probably lose this election, and it won't be because democrats cheated. GOP has alienated a lot of minority voters. It hurt them in the 2008 and 2012 election, too.


See, then idiots like Trump are getting his supporters very angry by playing a "democrats rig elections" narrative. People are probably gonna die and get hurt because of the stupid shit Trump says.

So, I decided to look into domestic terrorism statistics. Heres a summary:

-"In the 1990s, right-wing extremism overtook left-wing terrorism as the most dangerous domestic terrorist threat to the country."
-In the decade after 9/11, right-wing extremists averaged 337 attacks per year causing a total of 254 fatalities
-In 2010, about 70% of terroristic incidents were committed by right wing extremists compared to 5% by left wing extremists and 25% by Muslim extremists
-There is an average of 17 far right homicide incidents per year (1990-2010)

Sources are mostly the FBI and National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism

I think both OP's article and yours are misleading, you are both bringing up rare and infrequent types of incidents that are far from the normal actions of any given member of either party. That said... He does have a point when he says democrats are more prone to crime or violence, there is significant research showing the majority of convicted felons vote democratically. But there are obviously a lot more factors involved than just "he's democratic, must be a criminal". Democratic party is largely made up of low income families and and has more minority supporters who are more likely to live below poverty line. So, you could make a case that political ideology isn't the cause of the higher crimes rates in democratic party but rather (as is the usual with criminal research findings) poverty is the culprit and Dems, have more poor people. Though I guess a case could also be made that their state of poverty is influenced by their ideologies.

In other words,
Both those articles do nothing for anyone. Democrats do commit more crimes, but they have more low income supporters who are statistically more likely to commit crimes in the first place. Reflecting on whether they are more likely to or not as a result of a particular ideology itself is impossible because the findings of any study done would be misquoted and twisted into garbage by either side.

Someone post the video of Papa Franku telling political science major wannabes the one big truth in life: no one on the internet gives a shit about your opinions. If you feel the need to waste your time debating with complete strangers online by venting off your feelings, then you have time to find something else to do that is worth the effort.

Come now, children. I know it's cool to get all political but once again, really, seriously, no one gives a fuck.

No. That can't be. It is just the democrats who are animals. Not some of them. Most of them.
