For MAGAts spouting "most domestic terrorists are liberals" bullshit: I'm gonna hit you with some #FACTS. The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) includes systematic data on terrorist events around the world from 1970 through 2017. It includes domestic, transnational and... 1/7
international terrorist incidents. The GTD is →THE MOST← comprehensive unclassified database on terrorist attacks in the world, covering more than 180,000 cases. It includes the date & incident location, weapons used, nature of the target, number of casualties, and when... 2/7
identifiable; the group or individual responsible. According to the GTD; globally, terrorist attacks dropped from about 17,000 in 2014 to 11,000 in 2017, including a 40% DECLINE in the MIDDLE EAST, but the U.S. had a surge of terror-related violence in 2017 with 65 attacks. 3/7
The GTD shows that in 2017, almost TWO-THIRDS of terror attacks in the U.S. were tied to RIGHT-WING extremists with "racist, anti-Muslim, homophobic, anti-Semitic, fascist, anti-government or xenophobic motivations.” This includes the killing of Heather Heyer & injuring many- 4/7
others during the August 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va when James Alex Fields drove a car into a crowd after he was photographed earlier marching with the neo-Nazi hate group Vanguard America. He has been charged with 1st-degree murder & 30 hate crimes. 5/7
As stated earlier, the vast majority of the 65 terror attacks in the US were committed by RIGHT-WING extremists. Eleven (11) attacks, including the shooting of the GOP congressional baseball practice session, were inspired by "left-leaning ideologies." 6/7…
And how many domestic terrorist attacks were committed by Islamic extremists? Seven. In short, the biggest terror threat to Americans here at home isn't from liberals & Muslims. It's coming from your fellow MAGAts. #FactCheck this info by clicking👇🏽 7/7…
And right on cue; A gunman who killed 2 people at a Kroger in Kentucky, tried to enter a predominantly black church minutes before the attack. "I'm just thankful that all of our doors and security was in place," the church administrator said.
And here's the vehicle that the @FBI just seized, that the #MAGABomber was allegedly driving. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say he's probably NOT a liberal.
