Which is totally absurd:
The methodology doesn’t pass the smell test as it claims that “More than 2,600 terroristevents occurred in the United States between 1970 and 2008.” That’s an absurd amount of “terrorism” that breaks down to no fewer than 68 terrorist incidents per year nation wide, or about one incident every five days.
Clearly, there are some serious problems with how they’re defining “terrorism” here.
Not only with how they define “terrorism,” but with how they define a terrorist:
According to the report, “extreme right-wing” terrorists might be “suspicious of centralized federal authority” or “reverent of individual liberty.” Meaning that none other that Thomas Jefferson, that eloquent radical, might have drawn the interest of federal authorities today.
Ironically, while the report does also describe “extreme left-wing” terrorists, it doesn’t criticize the ideology of the leftists.
So, if you love freedom and liberty, you’re suspect. If you advocate for the swift and frequent use of force by the government, just don’t do it violently and you’re golden.
Seems about right.
Here’s the report:
