Growing threat of extreme right-wing violence [The Big Lie has begun]
CNN ^ | April 4, 2013 | Peter Bergen

Posted on 04/04/2013 1:33:27 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

(CNN) -- On the evening of March 19, Tom Clements, the director of Colorado's prison system, was shot and killed when he answered the door of his home near Colorado Springs.

The slaying sparked a police chase that ended a few days later in Texas, with authorities finally killing the suspect, 28-year-old Evan Ebel, in a shootout. It was soon discovered that Ebel had been part of a violent white supremacist gang during the eight years he spent in Colorado prisons.

Clements was the latest victim of increasingly active violent right-wing extremists. While American politicians and the U.S. public continue to focus on the threat from jihadist extremists, there seems to be too little awareness that this domestic form of political violence is a growing problem at home.

From 2002 to 2007, only nine right-wing extremists were indicted for their roles in politically motivated murders and other types of ideologically motivated violent assaults. But between 2008 and 2012, the number mushroomed to 53, according to data collected by the New America Foundation.

Fifteen right-wing extremists were indicted in 2012 -- including six who were involved in a militia in Georgia that accumulated weapons, plotted attacks on the government and murdered a young U.S. Army soldier and his 17-year-old girlfriend, who they suspected were planning to rat out the group to authorities. Seven claimed membership in the anti-government Sovereign Citizens movement and allegedly murdered two policemen in Louisiana. And two had gone on a murderous rampage the previous year, killing four people before they were arrested in California, where they told police they were on their "way to Sacramento to kill more Jews."

By comparison, in 2012, only six people who subscribed to al Qaeda's ideology were indicted on terrorism-related charges in the United States[.]

Fiscal Responsibility + Limited Government = White Supremacist Terror. Got it.

I would say that Operation Alinisky has started, but it never really stopped.

They are racist. Therefore, they are right wing. That's how the liberal mind works. No need for anything remotely resembling proof.

Well, if this is true then maybe those right-wing extremists will go after CNN.

If so, I wonder if donations to the group would be tax deductible?

All the white supremacist groups are fundamentally socialist when it comes to political orientation. The only difference between them and the Democrats is the Democrats are trying to kill all the babies and the Middle Class people while the white supremacists focus on whoever isn’t part of their group (note who they killed first ~ a soldier and his girlfriend).

Honestly I wouldn’t even characterize white prison gangs as political. They intially formed for protection against other ethnic gangs (not to excuse them - they’ve become as violent and vicious as the other ethnic gangs, and in some cases, even worse.)

There’s White Supremacist rhetoric, tatoos, etc. but their primary purpose now is making money. They cooperate and collaborate with various black and hispanic gangs when they can make money of the drug trade, etc.

I think the one dimensional left/right wing metaphor should be retired. It confuses conversation. It does not enlighten. I suppose that’s why demagogues love it.

All the recent mass murders were registered democrats (including the jihadist shooters) and one the son of registered democrats. Funny they never mention that. The democrat school shooters make the white supremacist look like a kindergarten gang.
Nothing here about the weather underground domestic terrorists and their new glorification by the left, either.

Odd how they leave out all the left wing terrorism and mass murders in this article. The most dangerous people in America today are democrats with guns.

Evan Ebel is the SON of a Jack Ebel who is a very good friend of Anti-Gun Colorado Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper!!!!

Evan Ebel was released 4 YEARS too early before he killed that one guy!!!! Peter Boyles surmises that his connection to Chickenpooper has somethign to do with this!!!!

http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_22896714/evan-ebel-out-prison-early-thanks-2011-colorado

Evan Ebel, the man suspected of killing Colorado prisons chief Tom Clements, probably would still be behind bars were it not for a law approved by legislators and Gov. John Hickenlooper in 2011.

Maybe ChickenPooper ONLY HAS HIMSELF TO BLAME!!!!!!

The police killed the suspect and there are further murders in a seemingly related crime and yet the original suspect can no longer be blamed.

Is this so-called White Supremacist organized crime group making their own drugs for sale or are they buying cocaine produced by other (non-white) narcoterrorists?

Is their name a big scare like how Hell’s Angels weren’t actually Satanists but it made them seem intimidating?

Could it also possibly be the work of another narcoterrorist group crossing our unsecured border doing the exact same things they do in Mexico to law officials?

I recall a hit on some Mexican judge or investigator who was hiding out in Texas (San Antonio?) by such a group.

Even Timothy Leary was threatened in prison by minorities when he was locked up. He decided to get them to write a newspaper of their grievances to take their aggression out on the prison officials instead of going after him and other white prisoners who weren't the cause of their problems.

The Colorado theater shooter is now professing his muslim faith in jail and claiming the shooting was an act of his own personal jihad. Still no answer as to whether he was Islamic before he was arrested.

Exactly. There's nothing right wing about them. They're a socialist gang. Socialism is a left wing theology. What does the white supremacist gang have to do with us?
It's not us dumbing the minorities down, or locking them up in their liberal inner city cages forcing them to vote democrat if they want their monthly brick of government cheese. The left wing KKK is doing that. We support vouchers and school choice to help them get the heck out of there!

Not so much a "big lie" as the "expected result". If you back any animal into a corner by threatening its well-being or the well-being of its family unit, it will ultimately fight back. The liberals are intentionally backing us into a corner. They fully expect us to fight back eventually. It's the desired result. They are grooming the battlefield against us now by painting us as the terrorists prior to the event. It's a simple strategy, really.

CNN state,”Clements was the latest victim of increasingly active violent right-wing extremists.” I think a more accurate sentence would read. “ Clements is the a victim of crony politics”. Politics that include the Governor of Colorado and one of his biggest supporters, Evan Ebel father. Questions include; Why was Evan Ebel, (the son of one of Gov. Hickenlooper’s friends) released four (4) years early after spending much of his time in jail in solitary confinement as punishment? Why was Evan Ebel, (the son of one of Gov. Hickenlooper’s friends) not required to go to a halfway house like other parolees? Why was Evan Ebel, (the son of one of Gov. Hickenlooper’s friends) allowed a drivers license unlike other parolees? Why was Evan Ebel, (the son of one of Gov. Hickenlooper’s friends) not arrested after he discarded his GPS ankle bracelet? Just curious.

Just on the news they find no connection between the TX and CO shooting. The Aryans are still suspect but their involvment with the mexican cartel is also as they are both drug running. Drug running is a criminal activity, not a right wing activity.

“Fifteen right-wing extremists were indicted in 2012 “

Fifteen. Shall we GUESS how many illegal aliens were indicted for serious crimes in 2012? And for that they get Citizenship!! yippppeeee!

Arrested illegals who were released charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes

Here’s another hint: More than HALF of all Federal prosecutions are of illegal aliens. In 2009, the U.S. Justice Department filed nearly 92,000 immigration-related criminal cases in the federal courts. The record-breaking trend accounted for more than half of all new federal prosecutions in the country, according to Justice Department data maintained at Syracuse University..”

Was it really political? Or gang violence? Or personal? Or just what criminals and nutcases do?

Where do you draw the line between gangs that cater to particular ethnic groups, and bigoted hate groups, and radical fringe political organizations?

But, if there is a Muslim involved they bring out the kid gloves.

Probably not all Muslims but the ones that don’t need to clean up their neighborhood.
