Society/Culture Can we please stop equating the risk posed by left wing extremists with that of right wing extremists?

Your argument that you made without the support of facts that demographics that most frequently commit serious crime vote Democrat because they blame Republicans for serious crime does not deserve a serious response.

The only people responsible for committing serious crime is the people who commit the serious crime.
Half of Americans don't even vote, they are the largest demographic.

This has been explained to you several times already.

Does it matter if killing a person ticks the box of being a terrorist activity or the individual ticks the box of being an extremist ?

The definition given to left wing extremism/terrorism is very very narrow and outdated.
Without seeking to play an excessively semantic game, how would you define terrorism in such a way as to encompass all of the behaviour that it involves, and then how would you define left wing to see how that label effects the former?

Essentially, create for me a Venn diagram of both things, so we can see how they interact according to you.

I'm a little concerned by your fixation on left wing US political parties and racial bias in crime, in a thread about Far Right wing extremists, particularly having regard to this post, where you lionized the Nazis in a separate thread about them:

Interesting read https://facingtoday.facinghistory.org/examining-nazi-environmentalism-during-earth-week

"Surprisingly, Nazi leadership ardently championed renewable energy, and institutionalized organic farming and land use planning on a level unmatched by any nation past or present."

The intent of that post was not to champion the Nazis but to highlight a similarity between the Nazis and the far left.

Another one.

An alleged far-right extremist in Tamworth has been charged with advocating terrorism and violence against racial minorities and political leaders.
Counter-terrorism police say they had a “very real fear” Wade John Homewood, 37, would inspire someone to carry out violence or terrorism because of his allegedly prolific social media posts featuring nationalist and racist messaging.

It's hard to comment without knowing what he actually said. It seems the AFP are not alleging he was a threat of committing violence but that he might inspire someone to commit a violent or terrorist act. In which case denial of bail seems a bit harsh. Remove those posts or delete the accounts and slap him with an internet ban.

Apparently the quantity of his messages on online forums was of concern - which seems a bit out of touch. There are people who spend most of their day on Bigfooty or other online forums.

Umm nah, unless you're talking about nazism in its absolute infancy, the 'idea' was socialism to put it simply.

But I wouldn't be aligning an antifa member with a member of the aus nazi party - they'd have glaringly different views on the world. Both extreme and crayon eating levels of intelligence but wildly different views none the less.

I think its pretty easy to understand the different between say being a socialist and being a national socialist

one of them is about socialism, the other is not
Well that would be inconsistent language then wouldn't it, if you can state a socialist or a 'national' socialist is not actually a socialist.................

You asked wtf I've been smoking in a context that suggests you disagree with my post.

Clearly I was referring to neo nazism in that reply to Seeds.

Clearly my query if you believe fringe lefties and neo nazis views are aligned is then validated.
