I mean it probably helps that:

Left wing extremism basically doesn't exist in the US. 

That left wing politics (eliminating hierarchy) is about ensuring that people are treated equal which means that groups aren't subjected to hate. It also means that certain lives aren't valued less than others. 

Well I suppose when you get to define what left wing politics is, one can easily define an extremist left wing killer as not actually left wing. I could do the same with right wing killers if I get to define what right wing is.

Right wing politics are generally very pro-law and order: it's against the law to kill so actually, what the ADL considers a right wing killing might not actually be right wing.


If we are calling law and order right wing, should we include killings by police officers in the right wing murder statistics?
