    Kudos to you for showing up when it doesn't end up being Islamic Terrorism.

    Hope you show up the other 99% of the time when it is. You know for the sake of being intellectually honest and not a crazy ideologue.

    How many recent murders and mass killings in the US and Canada have been committed by people who are influenced by far right or white supremacist ideology? Who's "not showing up?" here?

    What's that body count look like, and is it worth your breathless assumptions about culpability?

    Why is this a US Canada issue? This is a global issue.

    But I guess we can just ignore 9/11 because that inconvenient event tilts the scale a bit domestically.

    Because you breathlessly
    post about every potential terrorist event, even if it turns out not to have been perpetrated by Islamists, but completely ignore the ones--sometimes the very same events-- when their perpetrated by right
    -wing extremists.

    Now, personally, I don't think that either one is an existential threat, either corporeally, or civilly.
    But I think that it's potentially as dangerous to mainstream, or even benignly ignore, domestic extremism as it would be the other.
