1. GOP & Fox News Are Basically Terrorist Organizations (Based On Rhetoric & Effects Of That Rhetoric)
2. More Proofs that Brown People (Especially Brown Muslims) Are The WW 2 Jews Of Modern Day America
3. NRA, Infowars, Fox News, Breitbart And Sinclair Function As A Terrorist Propaganda Wing Of The GOP That Seeks To Build Hate & Muddy The Waters (Kinda Like State TV)
Alt-Right terrorism has become a mainstay in our society and is increasing (with Trump being the ultimate fruition of years of GOP policy and rhetoric). Samantha Bee does a good summary of the situation at the moment...

Sometimes Fox News personalities will accidentally admit to their Nazi style tactics...Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade Inadvertently Acknowledges That Fox Only Covers Terrorism When It Appears To Involve Muslims Kilmeade Says "The Last 5,000 Terror Attacks" That Fox Has Covered Have Begun With "An Arabic Phrase." Meanwhile The Network Has A History Of Ignoring Right-Wing Homegrown US Terrorism
A perfect example of a lie to cover a person obviously influenced by thier rhetoric...

A Terror Threat Fox News Won't Cover Silence From Network After Christian Minister Arrested For Threatening To Kill Muslims
10 of the Worst Terror Attacks by Extreme Christians and Far-Right White Men Most of the terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years has come not from Muslims, but from radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.
From Fox News to the Weekly Standard, neoconservatives have tried to paint terrorism as a largely or exclusively Islamic phenomenon. Their message of Islamophobia has been repeated many times since the George W. Bush era: Islam is inherently violent, Christianity is inherently peaceful, and there is no such thing as a Christian terrorist or a white male terrorist. But the facts don’t bear that out. Far-right white male radicals and extreme Christianists are every bit as capable of acts of terrorism as radical Islamists, and to pretend that such terrorists don’t exist does the public a huge disservice. Dzhokhar Anzorovich Tsarnaev and the late Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev (the Chechen brothers suspected in the Boston Marathon bombing of April 15, 2013) are both considered white and appear to have been motivated in part by radical Islam. And many terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by people who were neither Muslims nor dark-skinned.
When white males of the far right carry out violent attacks, neocons and Republicans typically describe them as lone-wolf extremists rather than people who are part of terrorist networks or well-organized terrorist movements. Yet many of the terrorist attacks in the United States have been carried out by people who had long histories of networking with other terrorists. In fact, most of the terrorist activity occurring in the United States in recent years has not come from Muslims, but from a combination of radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups.
Below are 10 of the worst examples of non-Islamic terrorism that have occurred in the United States in the last 30 years.
1. Wisconsin Sikh Temple massacre, Aug. 5, 2012. The virulent, neocon-fueled Islamophobia that has plagued post-9/11 America has not only posed a threat to Muslims, it has had deadly consequences for people of other faiths, including Sikhs. Sikhs are not Muslims; the traditional Sikh attire, including their turbans, is different from traditional Sunni, Shiite or Sufi attire. But to a racist, a bearded Sikh looks like a Muslim. Only four days after 9/11, Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh immigrant from India who owned a gas station in Mesa, Arizona, was murdered by Frank Silva Roque, a racist who obviously mistook him for a Muslim.
But Sodhi’s murder was not the last example of anti-Sikh violence in post-9/11 America. On Aug. 5, 2012, white supremacist Wade Michael Page used a semiautomatic weapon to murder six people during an attack on a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Page’s connection to the white supremacist movement was well-documented: he had been a member of the neo-Nazi rock bands End Empathy and Definite Hate. Attorney General Eric Holder described the attack as “an act of terrorism, an act of hatred.” It was good to see the nation’s top cop acknowledge that terrorist acts can, in fact, involve white males murdering people of color.
2. The murder of Dr. George Tiller, May 31, 2009. Imagine that a physician had been the victim of an attempted assassination by an Islamic jihadist in 1993, and received numerous death threats from al-Qaeda after that, before being murdered by an al-Qaeda member. Neocons, Fox News and the Christian Right would have had a field day. A physician was the victim of a terrorist killing that day, but neither the terrorist nor the people who inflamed the terrorist were Muslims. Dr. George Tiller, who was shot and killed by anti-abortion terrorist Scott Roeder on May 31, 2009, was a victim of Christian Right terrorism, not al-Qaeda.Read more.
Did Fox News commentary make the Austin Bomber hide his reasons for bombing people? In any case, there is some awareness, to some extent, that thier rhetoric causes some of thier devotees to follow through on it.
Fox's Geraldo Rivera: Austin, TX "is a sanctuary city," maybe the bomber has "a beef with that"
I would like to note that CNN CAN fight back if thier own lives at at risk (so they aren't total cowards when it comes to fighting for thier own lives)....
Ana Navarro: Trump “is going to get somebody killed in the media” CNN’s Navarro: “The president of the United States is inciting violence against the free press”
Not so much for brown people...
The arguments over the years have basically demonized brown people as terrorists ...
