We are in the final days of Ramadan 2017, and this year's casualties are absolutely staggering.
With a couple of days left in this year’s holiest month for Muslims, the fatalities at 1,470 have more than tripled the estimated 421 that took place during the entire Ramadan period last year, considered one of the bloodiest in recent memory.
The 2,905 total number of casualties (1,470 murders and 1,435 injuries) have more than doubled the estimated 1,150 (421 deaths and 729 injuries that took place in 2016.
There have been nearly 145 incidents in more than 20 mainly Muslim nations during Ramadan this year, which began on May 27 and expected to end on Saturday.
"Right-wing extremists were not only more successful, they were often more deadly, too. From 2008 to 2016, a third of right-wing attacks involved fatalities, compared to 13 percent of Islamist attacks."
"This project quantifies just how irrational Trump and the GOP's fixation on 'radical Islamic terrorism' as the greatest security threat is.”
Last time I checked, conservatives did not:
Throw Homosexuals Off Rooftops
Genetally Mutilate Women
Decapitate Non-Believers and Apostates
Tax Members of Other Religions Out of Existence
Suppress Free Speech
Force Women Into Submission
Kill Their Daughters to Protect Their Honor
I could go on and on...
This is Fake News at it's most dangerous folks. Data manipulation, dirty media practices, and selective studies will never stop the spread of hatred through Radical Fundamentalist Islam.

Johnny Depp Faces Backlash Over Assassination Remarks:
On Thursday at the Glastonbury arts festival in southwest England, Johnny Depp stuck his foot in his mouth, following a long line of other celebrities that have imagined serious violence against Donald Trump both publicly, and with the full-weight of their platform.
Depp wondered aloud if maybe the time has come for John Wilkes Booth 2.0: "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? [...] It’s been awhile, and maybe it’s time."
Johnny Depp: "When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?"
The Secret Service said it was aware of Depp's comment. Threats against the president are considered a crime under U.S. law and punishable by fine or time in prison.
“For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and methods of how we perform our protective responsibilities,” the Secret Service said in a statement.
"Tolerant Leftist" Elise Jordan likened anyone who cosies up or defends President Trump to someone who is "Hugging a suicide bomber."
I've said it before, and I'll say it again- The Main Stream Media is complicit in fomenting violence against right wingers and anyone with a world-view different than theirs. The media are in the drivers' seat politically, and they will not stop until they drive this country right off the side of a cliff and into the arms of violent Communists who have been drooling all over this country ever since the Bolshevik Revolution 100 years ago.
Is it possible that Senator McCarthy was right? Should we have heeded the warnings of notable figures such as Bella Dodd, Father Charles Coughlin, Bishop Fulton Sheen or Benjamin H. Freedman?
Time will tell my friends.
Pamela Geller - The Coming Civil War:
The left has been at war against America for decades. The right represents those of us who favor individual freedom and capitalism — and the left are those who want government controls and socialism.
Political violence became an essential and successful means of leftist warfare in the 60’s, the decade of destruction. The success of the violent “student rebellion” in 1964 and the so-called Free Speech Movement has set the table for the left’s warmongering and treason. It was clear from the outset that the “student revolution” violently ushered in at Berkeley in the mid-sixties would come to this. The left is evil, and they mean to destroy our way of life, our freedom and us. It took decades to norm their anti-Americanism, their hatred of freedom and individual rights, but they have reached their tipping point. And the long beaten and battered among us have had it...
