A university professor has debunked a study that claimed right-wing white males had killed more people on American soil than Muslim terrorists. Indeed, not only did he disprove it, but he showed the number was way off, proving that Islamic extremists had killed 62 people for every one killed by right-wing extremists.
“Recently I have noticed a lot of friends and associates posting articles on social media that claim right wing extremism is more dangerous than Islamic extremism,” Professor Andrew Holt, a PhD and Florida State University professor, wrote on his personal blog.
“For many, the claim is surprising, so I thought I would take a look at the numbers to see if it is justifiable. At the outset, let me acknowledge that extremist attacks by any person on behalf of any political ideology are disturbing and must be examined and condemned. Yet it is such an important issue that an open and honest accounting of such claims is necessary.”
He quickly found out that the numbers on the social media meme left out any of the casualties from the 9/11 attacks — a shocking and obviously deliberate omission.
“Indeed, if you include the death totals from 9/11 in such a calculation, then there have been around 62 people killed in the United States by Islamic extremists for every one American killed by a right wing terrorist (a 62 to 1 ratio if you divide the slightly over 3000 deaths due to Islamic extremism by the 48 deaths attributed to right wing extremism),” Holt wrote.
What a shocker — leftists omitting the most infamous terror attack of all time because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
We know that the left doesn’t like America in general and white American conservatives in particular. However, one can only bend the data points so much before they become meaningless.
