Reza Aslan claims that since 2002, right-wing terrorists have killed far more Americans than Islamic terrorists

Media wonder boy Reza Aslan is behind the curve on this one: this particular talking point has already been debunked (not that he would care, or stop repeating it, if he knew). Back in June 2015, the New America Foundation published a study that garnered enthusiastic international publicity, as it purported to demonstrate that “right-wing extremists” and “white supremacists” were a larger threat to the U.S. than Islamic jihadis. The study was obviously skewed, as it was based on the number of those killed by jihadis and by right-wing extremists since September 12, 2001, leaving  out 9/11. The study also ignored the many, many foiled jihad plots, and the fact that jihadis are part of an international movement that has killed many thousands of people, while right-wingers and white supremacists are not. It stated that right-wing extremists had killed 48 people from September 12, 2001 to June 2015, while Islamic jihadists had killed only 26 people in the U.S. in that span. If 9/11 had been added, the tally would have been 3,032 killed by Islamic jihadists and 48 by purported right-wing extremists. And even by the New America Foundation’s rules, the Orlando jihad massacre makes the death toll stand at 76 killed by Islamic jihadis, and 48 by purported right-wing extremists (I repeat “purported” because to get to its count of 48, the NAF counted as “right-wing” attacks killings that were perpetrated by people who were obviously deranged psychopaths devoid of any ideology).

Will Reza Aslan retract and apologize? What do you think?

    Aslan is so fragrant he is the eau-de-cologne of islamofuckoffia. Every time I get a whiff of Reza I just want to yell “Fuck Off”. However, there are better logicians than I who are quite capable of putting this malodorous twit back in his bottle. I’ll leave it up to them to clear the air.

      His flagrance smells of eau-de-toilette …….

  • This jackhole should state his case with victims of terrorism.

    I’m sure they would love to hear his fabricated statistics.

    Frack-wits like this can make these absurd claims in their comfort zones. I would like to see how well they do while being chewed alive by the truth.
