Okay, we may have more attacks than you have shootings in schools. But 30 terrorist attacks all in all in over a dozen countries compared to 15 school shootings in just one is still a sad statistic for the US.

Also, did deeper into the GTD list. The bulk of the increase is not coming from jihadists or other immigrants, but actually from far right movements which have multiplied in the last years. The immigrants are perfect fodder for them 

When your dozen countries are sized smaller than USA even when summed and population is probably about similar, then you can't really claim high ground because of number of countries.

And usually the classification for "far right" is quite laughable on media... and also some people that classify anything conservative, libertarian or even non communist as far right.

The difference is that here in mainland western Europe those parties/groups generally consider themselves being far right (though none would admit they'd be extreme right even if it would be a nazi party, as extreme right is an absolute no-go and political suicide) or at least right wing (mainstream right here is center-right, not (just) right (wing)). So if an attack is reported to be from far right extremists, you can be damn sure it is, especially since normally they wait before they know for sure who actually did the attack before identifying them.

If that doesn't work, we have...other ways.

Yeah, that's not something to be joking around with. I get it you're one of those anti trump folks who are so emotionally invested in this guy that you justify such nonsense but there is a line people don't cross.

So how do they consider themselves far right but not admit it??? I'm quite curious.

Funny that over here on the newspaper that is reported from the local Europe newspaper almost all official parties that aren't left oriented are called far right, and any person not abiding to the PC/SJW terminology called an extremist, xenophobic, racist, mysoginist, etc.

Read again: They'll fully admit being far right, but extreme right is the term they don't want to be associated with (that more than just implies Nazism and fascism around here) If you ever played Hearts of Iron, you could consider them calling themselves paternalistic autocrats, but not wanting to be called fascists.

May I ask what newspaper(s) you're referring to? Because I read lots of newspapers (mostly luxembourgish, german and/or french/french belgian ones) and in those unless proven any of these they wouldn't call those groups any of those terms.

Brazilian Newspaper reporting from the european stories sourcing from the local newspaper, but I certainly wouldn't remember them.

Now for the Brazilian News outlets you can have Globo, Terra, Uol, Folha de São Paulo.

I said, that you shouldn't compare it and proved that your claim was wrong. You now act as if only islamic terrorism is true terrorism. It's too much work to separate the islamic terrorism from the non islamic terrorism in the GTD, so I will use another source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_terrorism_in_Europe_(2014%E2%80%93present)#2016

It list 17 islamic terrorist attacks for 2016. (+4 terror plots, which could be prevented)

So even singling it out to islamic terrorism your claim "... the whole continent has less terrorist attacks than the US has school shootings ..." ist still false. Because 17 is still bigger than 15 school shootings.



Comparing USA and Europe for shooting incidents that injured at least two people is not even funny. USA has huge number of those. It seems totally unbelievable that USA still has such poor gun control and gun regulations. School shootings are just the tip of the iceberg and I don´t see much point in comparing them with terrorist attacks from Europe. Why not compare school shootings with school shootings?
