White American men are a bigger domestic terrorist threat than Muslim foreigners

So it begins:facepalm-hand-gesture-smiley-emoticon:https://www.vox.com/world/2017/10/2/16396612/las-vegas-mass-shooting-terrorism-islam

Since Trump took office, more Americans have been killed by white American men with no connection to Islam than by Muslim terrorists or foreigners.

When President Donald Trump signed his since-revised executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, he claimed it was to protect Americans from “radical Islamic terrorists.”

“We don’t want ‘em here,” Trump told reporters at the Pentagon, where he signed the order in January.

But in the eight months since Trump took office, more Americans have been killed in attacks by white American men with no connection to Islam than by Muslim terrorists or foreigners.


WHITE MEN HAVE COMMITTED MORE MASS SHOOTINGS THAN ANY OTHER GROUP  http://www.newsweek.com/white-men-have-committed-more-mass-shootings-any-other-group-675602

The deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history was shocking in its scale — but it wasn't a surprise that it was committed by a white male.

Statistics show that since 1982, the majority of mass shootings — 54 percent — were committed by white men, according to data from Mother Jones. Black people were the second largest perpetrators of mass shootings based on ethnic background, but only accounted for roughly 16 percent of the total incidents during the same time period.

The average age of the shooters was 35, however, making the perpetrator in Las Vegas, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, somewhat of an outlier. It is too early to say if mental illness played a role in Paddock's case, but it has in a number of mass shootings, though it is perhaps too frequently pointed to as the primary cause. 

Other research suggests white men commit mass shootings out of a sense of entitlement.

“There’s a feeling of entitlement that white men have that black men don’t," criminologist James Alan Fox told The Washington Post in 2012. "They often complain that their job was taken by blacks or Mexicans or Jews. They feel that a well-paid job is their birthright. It’s a blow to their psyche when they lose that. . . . If you’re a member of a group that hasn’t historically experienced unemployment, there’s a far greater stigma to [losing a job] than those who have."

But others say it's hard to point to any single factor in terms of why white men have comitted most mass shootings.

Wow. Let the anti white male propaganda begin. God I hate these people. They blame everyone but themselves for this bullshit. The left has allowed all of this to happen with their America last policies yet they won't own up to thier mistakes and they just blame white men. The bs today is def not adding up. If Isis and antifa claimed the shooting how the FK does relate to a white male conservitie leaning person. Wtf. Liberal logic is just straight up retarded.
