I'm afraid of anyone who wants to make law or policy based on how things make them "feel." I don't care which side does it. Laws need to be based on reason, not feelings.
My point? A celebrated children's author is now persona non grata because someone felt the same books that have been cherished for decades are now "problematic."
(1) Which - as of December 2020 - is quite literally the #1 county in the NATION in terms of per capita income. Coincidence?
(2) I'm pretty sure the works of William Shakespeare lack representation too. Are they next?
(3) Whatever the Hell that's supposed to mean. I can only assume it means they're complaining about him using Asian references, clothes, tropes, etc which is a big no-no for white people. Pity he didn't know 50-60 years ago, when he wrote most of these books, that people would lose their damn minds in the future.
What scares me most about Radical Lefties is that, increasingly, they are getting a free pass and/or not being held to nearly the same standard as those on the right for their crimes. Some of the more astute Lefties are well aware of this, and use it to their every advantage.
Minor problem: the analysis on "paste bin" compare the muslim population (1.1% of total us pop) to the entire "right" population (29% of total us pop).
Yet your headline speaks about right wing EXTREMISTS, which would be a subset... a small subset... of right wing population.
I tried and could not find any numbers on how many right wing EXTREMISTS there are in the USA.
Based on the above, my answer to your question is:
It is not all muslims committing, supporting, or condoning terror plots; it's their extremist subset.
It is not all right wingers committing, supporting, or condoning terror plots; it's their extremist subset.
It is not right to fear muslims, but it is right to fear their extremists...
....the same way it is not right to fear right wingers, but it is right to fear their extremists.
The death toll by Muslim terrorists from Feb 1 to today, 717.
Could anyone tell the group the number killed by right wing extremists?

I guess we will just have to accept the labels giving the left one more win in the culture war.
That said why would we want to prioritize what group is more dangerous when it changes from day to day. Every group of people have there crazies so wouldn't it be better to just watch out for crazy people? Then of course it depends on where you live. When I lived in the country I watched out for crazy red necks. Now that I live in the inner city I have a whole different list of crazy people I watch out for. I have developed a fairly good nose for them. The crazies always have a kind of angry feel to them. If you watch them they move differently than normal people. There are tale tale signs of pent up aggression.
To answer the question, I feel more likely to be killed by a Muslim terrorist (.000001 chance) than a right-wing extremist (absolutely 0 chance). To answer the poll, Given today's political climate and the violence taking place in our cities, I feel most likely to be killed by a left wing extremist, but I still consider the possibility to be small.
The most dangerous most prescient threat to our lives, liberty and peaceful existence is Politicians. People who clamor for political power will literaly do anything - anything! they think will get them to the level of power and control over others that they want.
Islam is a crude, primitive and brutal philosophy - but it is no worse in that regard than Communism/Socialism. I submit that the very personality types who use violence and threats of violence in pursuing both (Communism and Islam) are the same.
Narcissistic, sociopathic, megalomaniacal, sadistic personality types - this is your typical "career politician" and your wanna be Communist/Socialist dictator.
I am far more concerned with domestic terrorists like blm and antifa, which happen to be radically left wing. Islamic terrorists are better equipped to cause destruction, but I do not happen to be in one of the areas that would be a likely target of a foreign terrorist attack. With domestic terrorism, it is entirely possible that the terrorists live next door to you, and you can never tell where they will strike because they essentially have immediate access to most of the nation.
We fail to realize what a humiliating effect the cold war loss by the Soviet Union had on Russia. (The United States came in 2nd. It was China that won.) When Putin came to power he began planing for the destruction of the United States. He was willing to wait many years to accomplish it and has done a very effective job of it now. He saw how republican isolated themselves during Gingrich's peak of power. He saw how Democrats lost themselves in irrelevant political actions instead of working with their base. (Look how many Obama voters turned to Trump). Instead of conquering us militarily at the cost of hundreds of billions of dollars he is simply spending a few million dollars in social media and news outlets to further drive the wedge between political sides in the United States. One indication of his success is our concerns about polls like the above that have very little to do with the problems we are having today. He is laughing at us for being the fools.
