The Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris, in which Muslims shot 12 people at a paper that published cartoons of Mohammed, inspired these Tweet from the Daily Beast's Sally Kohn, a "progressive":

The CNN story is what some people call "nonsense on stilts." Their weird count is

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).

By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11. U.S. right wing extremists more deadly than jihadists, By Peter Bergen and David Sterman, Updated 5:29 PM ET, Tue April 15, 2014
This counts almost no Muslim killings as terrorists unless there's a definite connection to overseas terror. Here are all the killings inside the US  you're supposed to consider terrorist since 9/11:
Plot name Persons killed
2014 Washington and New Jersey Killing Spree 4
2014 Oklahoma Beheading 1
2013 Boston Marathon Bombing 4
2009 Little Rock Shooting 1
2009 Fort Hood Shooting 13
2006 Seattle Jewish Federation Shooting 1
2002 Los Angeles Airport Shooting 2
Now, first of all, it omits some terror attacks (including three murders by the Tsarnaevs):
  • In 2002, Muslim Beltway Snipers John Allan Muhammad and Lee Malvo, two black Muslims, shot 10 white people, wounding 3, not on the list.
  • In 2007 Sulejman Talovic, a Bosnian Muslim, shot  5 people dead, wounding  4 in Salt Lake City, also not on the list, which makes  CNN story wrong, right there.
But immigrant Muslims are always killing people in America  for random reasons--take Somali immigrant Omar Mohamed Kalmio who, as Brenda Walker wrote  "got life in prison for a 2011 mass murder in two parts. First he shot his girlfriend, then drove across town to murder her 13-year-old brother, her mother and the mother’s boyfriend. "

Black Muslims are heavily included in the crime statistics--two Black Muslims and one immigrant Muslim are included in my survey of "Disgruntled Minority Massacres", (anti-white workplace shooters) although the point of that article was that they were motivated by anti-white hatred more than Islam.

Muslims have been in mass shootings--see the case of John Zawahri:If A Maniac With A Middle Eastern Name Shoots A Bunch Of Americans, Inquiring Minds Want To Know If He`s A Muslim, Don`t They? Well, Don`t They?

Then there was Orange County carjacker Ali Syed, who killed three people and himself. That was a Muslim mass murder, wasn't it?

Well, of course, Ali Syed was "California man" in the MSM: Authorities: 4 dead in California shooting spree, By Gillian Flaccus, Associated Press, February 19, 2013.

I wrote at the time of the Ali Syed murders that "Even if it`s not Sudden Jihad, but ordinary homicidal gangsterism, I still think Ali Syed should have been doing it in some other country."

But the point is this--the Media isn't allowed to notice that a killing is done by a Muslim, but is encouraged to look for right-wing ties where none exist.
