the way the right act in america is nuts. i really thing the stuff they do is to entice a holy jihad. same way they do stuff to try to start race wars. america is full of psychos ready to go for it now.
its funny how study after study showed the most acts and threats of terrorism come from the right but its always swept under the rug
I'm curious about this. Could you point me to these studies, please?
I could believe it. For whatever reason, the left wing (and i'm talking fringe left here) isn't very militarized, although you saw more violence from Occupy than from the equivalent Tea Party in the right, the far fringe left in America is generally more peacable, barring the eco-terrorists who are still more like large-scale vandals. The fringe right in America, however, has been quite scary from the 90's on ahead.
I would imagine incidents (whether these are threats, plots, or executed plots) from the American fringe right outnumber those of radicalized Muslims operating in the USA, but that many of them are minor and, while not being swept under the rug as gameonbro stated, are just not big enough to be noticeable
I think that's based almost completley on your definition of Leftwing... for this to be true I think you'd have to make two conclusions.
1) Anarchists don't count as Left Wing because no government = smaller government.
However generally, Anarchists tend to vote Leftwing and are left leaning as seen by the fact that they are a big part of Occupy Wallstreet or at least were starting off.
2) Communist terrorist/freedom forces like FARC don't count as leftwing because while they preach communist revolution, they're probably going to just implement a generic dictatorship that replaces the last one.
Really a "what they say vs what they do." Either way it's terrorism in the name of Leftwing Ideals.
Additionally, I'd watch out for some possible leftwing terrorism in Greece. They're trying to liberalize their economy. The last time that happened the minister in charge was killed. The groups are out there. They just haven't really had much reason to act lately.
