    The role that ideology plays in a terrorist or would-be terrorist's decision-making depends on the individual. It is inaccurate to say, as a blanket statement, that "ideology plays a 'huge' part in it." For a terrorist who was raised in an extremist ideology that preaches violence, then yes, ideology would probably play a large role in their behavior. However, for a terrorist was raised in a normal environment and that is just pissed at the world and needs a justification for his violence, ideology probably plays a much smaller role.

    There haven't been any "right-wing extremist" terrorist attacks.

    For purposes of this discussion I don't care about the politics either way. What's important is the testimony of the attackers. One drew a direct line to causation by SPLC; the other did not draw a direct line to Glenn Beck.

    Back to the original topic: I would not want Glenn Beck deciding who's a terrorist, and I don't think SPLC has any business doing that either.

    Oh wow. Think progress? Well, as if it wasn't clear before, it's now crystal clear this thread is a joke.

    Exactly. Now ask those that show the cart to name all 25 of the 'right wing' terror acts in 1995...

    *scratching head* They weren't deciding who was a terrorist, as long as slander isn't involved, both have freedom of speech, yes? Never mind.

    I find even the dates and the time table to be arbitrary in the extreme for purely political purposes.

    SPLC was listed as a data source for YOUR graphic (post #46). You're the one citing them as valid namers of terrorists.

    You are confused Jack, they did compile the data for the number of terrorists incidents. That has no relevance to them naming the FRC a hate group. NONE!!!
