WARNING: IF YOU CARE ABOUT THOSE WHO DIED OR SURVIVED THOSE WHO PERISHED ON 9/11, LIAM NEESON'S NEW MOVIE NONSTOP WILL MAKE YOUR EYES BLEED
Disclaimer: the following information, in accordance with current journalistic practice, has not been checked for accuracy. We present the following, assuming, as do reporters in the various network affiliates, newspapers, magazines and other news outlets, that the source, whether AP, CNN, or the current one, is inerrable, largely because it shares our worldview...
Never mind that Jihadists murdered thousands of Americans on September 11, 2001; never mind Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, etc., and the death toll of Americans killed by Islamists in the US and abroad
i
 ; and never mind the source: that CNN obfuscated the murder and torture (for example, by chipper
 
shredder) of countless Iraqis in order to protect its own
 ... It's ancient history, you know. Anyway, it's our fault that Islamists attacked us and Saddam and his sons did what they did, right? And you better watch out, because some relative of a 911 victim may just be gunning for revenge against innocents—at least, according to the newest leftwing extremist nightmare vision of America starring Liam Neeson
 ... Never mind all that, because (burying the lead, he said) U.S. right wing extremists are more deadly than jihadists

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
 
 
Peter Bergen, David Sterman: Man killed three at Jewish centers in Kansas
 
Suspect shouted "Heil Hitler;" if it had been "Allahu Akbar" media would cover it more, they say
 
Since 9/11, right wing extremists have killed more in U.S. than those motivated by al Qaeda
 
Writers: Given this, why do we not give more national security attention to right wing attacks?

community where he shot and killed a third person. Police arrested a suspect, Frazier Glenn Cross, who shouted "Heil Hitler" after he was taken into custody. Cross, who also goes by Frazier Glenn Miller, is a well
known right wing extremist who founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Now let's do the thought experiment in which instead of shouting "Heil Hitler" after he was arrested, the suspect had shouted "Allahu Akbar." Only two days before the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, this simple switch of words would surely have greatly increased the extent and type of coverage the incident received. Peter Bergen  Yet the death toll in the shootings in Kansas is similar to that of last year's Boston Marathon bombings, where three people were killed and the suspects later killed a police officer as they tried to evade capture. (Many more, of course, were also wounded in the Boston attacks; 16 men, women and children lost limbs.) In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far 
right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti
abortion extremists and anti
government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11. (The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime). "Since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far 
right wing ideologies...have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology." By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11. (Although a variety of left wing militants and environmental extremists have carried out violent attacks for political reasons against property and individuals since 9/11, none have been linked to a lethal attack, according to research by the New America Foundation.)
