Thursday, April 21


This is one of those "sun rises in the east" facts that stares us in the face daily but few people bother to articulate, so when they do, it becomes news: "The Homeland Security Department is focusing on possible terror threats from radical environmental and animal rights activists without also examining risks that might be posed by right-wing extremists, House Democrats said Tuesday." This was intentionally brought up on April 19th, the 10th anniversary of the worst domestic terrorism on U.S. soil (168 people killed - by right-wing extremists). Here's the kicker, which we all know but forget to bring up: "ALF and ELF are accused by the FBI of committing hundreds of acts of arson or other attacks on property in the United States, causing millions of dollars in damages. None of their attacks, however, have caused human deaths."
