Worth noting, both the UK and Germany have experienced recent political assasinations, performed by rightwing extremists.
Keep shouting into that hard left echo chamber.

We all know who poses the biggest threat, to the largest number of the community.

Nail on the head here from Tucker. I've never seen a more ungrateful person than Omar. An absolute disgrace and obviously a well crafted plan (like AOC) because they know full well they wouldn't have gotten this far in politics (well this quickly) had it not been for the cliche rhetoric they spew. It's vogue to hate the US at the moment. In other countries they'd probably ship Omar back to Somalia and say "there you go, fill your boots"

Yes, right wing extremism as the numbers and expert analysis suggest.

Facts don't care about your feelings.
Tell that to the family of little Ebba Akerlund.

I’ll ask again. Please post a chart documenting the amount of Islamic terror attacks and casualties in the West since 9/11.

Then we can compare those numbers with the victims of ‘far right’ terrorism in the same areas, during the same period.

What are you concerned will happen? Klansmen galloping into parliament house?
No, mass shooters ventilating Mosques or schools, activists or members of a minority community getting mowed down by cars or progressive politicians getting shot.

Or maybe another crank right wing leader dragging the country into a doomed war.

Given the ruthless and regular propensity of the right for violence, this is a pretty normal concern to hold.

If unnecessary death is your concern, why not put your energy into awareness/prevention of suicide and road fatalities? Those tolls would be at over a thousand by now in Australia in 2019, vs 0 deaths from RW extremism.

It's whataboutism, but that is all we cop when we mention LW violence. "But issue X is larger, so let's ignore harmless Antifa!"

Because this isn't a thread about suicide and road fatalities.
