Why is the right eager to call out "radical islamic terrorism", but not "right wing domestic terrorism"?

I guess "law and order" doesn't apply to the potential GOP voter base.

"Law-enforcement responses to violence by white nationalists have long been the focus of fierce bipartisan disputes. Republicans in 2009 reacted furiously to a Department of Homeland Security report that described right-wing extremist violence as a rising threat. They accused the agency of a bid to smear conservatives."

Law enforcement only carry out investigation if they have reasonable belief that a crime has been committed or about to be committed.

Unfortunately, being a member of a right wing extremist or left wing extremist group is not a crime.

Unless you want cops to be like in that movie Minority Report (starring Tom Cruise)?

Its because liberals have been trying to paint all trump supporters as right wing extremists.

That means if you start calling out right wing extremist terrorism, then you are labeling yourself as a potential terrorist even though you have very little in common with those terrorists.

Another thread rights are bad and the left is good.

I have not seen anyone on the right or otherwise condone rightwing domestic terrorism. I haven't seen anyone try to justify it or explain it away as no big deal.

The same can not be said for those who constantly justify the much larger problem of inner city violence.

Of course we could say that some people did something on 9/11? That seems acceptable these days, but don't say that Muslim terrorists did it.

We even had a president try to say that Benghazi was caused by an unknown Youtube video. Rather than admit what it was.

So the OP can spare us the faux outrage. It isn't a right or left majority. What it is, is a political ploy used to demonize the competition. Never let a tragedy go to waste. Rahm Emanuel fessed that up a long time ago.

FBI don't go after "right wing extremists" because there's too many, to the tune of about 200 million...

...I mean, seeing as the Mainstream Media would have people believe that Any and All white, heterosexual, christians are "right wing extremists".

EDIT: Double Down; notice I didn't specify gender in there, because s--t is getting so stupid in this country that a white woman who specifically wants a baby from a white man will probably end up on some kind of watch list.

Regardless of what slander you employ, illegal immigration is still morally wrong, Trump is still right to oppose it, and you still support criminality, and the violation of my rights.

The FBI did nothing but run around trying to find supposed white supremacists during Obama's terms even while ignoring blatant terrorists and crazies right in front of them. Then you had the SPLC making up stories about the KKK and white nationalists where none existed making them seem even more imaginary. Then Trump gets elected and the MSM repeats the narrative all over again about white nationalism on the rise when its the exact opposite of the truth.
Trump has reigned in the FBI and Justice Department and gotten them back to doing their jobs and not being a bunch of politicized goon squads but he still has a long way to go. The CIA in particular still needs to be fumigated.
Hopefully they'll get to the persons who sent this idiot kid on his mission in El Paso but I don't think the MSM would be happy if they do.

Illegal immigration is morally wrong? Try again. How about The fact that the GOP won't fix the immigration problem. Illegal immigrants do a lot of work citizens aren't interested in
