Went to ADL site and couldn't find the data supporting your chart. I do find it interesting that the Pulse Nightclub shooting wasn't included in these numbers. There were 50 people dead there but your chart only has 1 person murdered by Islamists that year.

Makes me wonder what criteria the ADL used to classify the various types of murders, including what constitutes White Supremacists driven murders. I do not support that sort of bigoted idiocy. Just as I don't support bigoted idiocy from the left. I do have issues with classifying White Supremists as Right Wing. Many of those idiots believe in a strong central state that provides a thorough social safety net. That sounds like socialism to me, so why automatically classify them as right wing? Racism isn't just the province of one political group.

The numbers are incidents, not persons murdered. If you bothered to check the details on the ADL-site you would have seen that. Orlando is listed with 49 dead and 53 injured.

The number of incidents involving right wingers (of any affiliation taken separately) outweighs any left wing incidents.

Trump's ridiculous dodging and excuse making for the Saudis in the murder of a US resident journalist is reaching the point of him being an active conspirator in covering up responsibility for the crime. And his constant denials of having any financial interest in the Saudis when we all know he is lying seeing as he himself spent the campaign bragging about how much business he does with them and he hasn't divested himself from a damn thing since then only highlight how compromised he is.

Lol, hell. I'm related to the English Royal family. My (5th) cousin will be king one day.

The thing with the North American tribes, like the tribes down here in Oz, is that the most important aspect in being a member of the tribe is being a member of the tribe.

GC, it's almost impossible to differentiate Tribes from the north east regeon from each other genetically, almost as difficult to tell them from the western tribes.

There is practically no genetic difference.

When you get deep into South America you start getting minor differences.

As for Trump and the Saudi tweet. Fox fact checked him and listed the business dealings.

President Trump let his racism and mouth run wild and rather than shutting up (as if he knew how to) he is doubling down.
The man has no regard for anyone not named Trump.

What is at issue is that she claimed minority status professionally prior to becomming senator, when she had no more Native American blood in her than any other averge white person. She had no advantage in that respect yet claimed she had.

The DNA test proves she has some amount of background Native American DNA as is in any other white person. The samples used does not support what type of background Native American ancestry she has. It does not prove her claims of Cherokee and Delaware ancestry (even if she isn't trying to become a tribal admission).

When Harvard claimed she was a person of color and the other faculty members were not, that implies she is more of color than other white professors. That is not true.

Based on that, I don't believe trump should pay on his bet. If she takes a test that compares her DNA with an appropriate sample, she may well get results that support her claims. Until then its Lieawatha.




I had my DNA tested and have ZERO indigenous tribe blood... but I never claimed to be, nor to be politically correct.
I think the underlying issue may be more related to the "One Drop" laws and that Affirmative Action is a reaction to that... the racism and the attempts to end it BUT...
Just as Prohibition or the War on Drugs cannot make the alcoholic or addict want to quit... affirmative action laws cannot cure the raciest bigot's mental illness.

While we are in the middle of dealing with the torture and murder of a journalist by the Saudis as Trump makes excuses and avoids dealing with the issue because they have lots of money and he wants it... Trump just got up in front of his mob at a rally and praised the actual physical assault of another journalist.

Yawn!

Your complaints would be more effective if you did not complain about everything Trump does. By the way, your arguments trying to persuade Christians not to support might be effective if you did not hate Christians and God!

The Turkish government is becoming more and more annoyed by the Saudi's stories. Firstly it was an even fist fight, now it was an inadvertent sleeper hold. The Turks are hinting that they are going to blow their cover and reveal the full extent of their surveillance, and prove the full story of a 15 man hit squad specifically flown in to torture and murder the journalist, on the orders of the Crown Prince.
Not at all sure of why you are referencing your religion in this? WTF has it to do with the case?

Maybe you should:

1: Keep track of who you are talking to.

2: Keep track of what thread you are in.
