Don't you agree that right wing terrorism exists and deserves attention? For such an avid chronicler of current events, I'm surprised at your lack of enthusiasm for this thread.

Thread isn't about other members, but it's now on the verge of becoming messy. If anyone wants to talk about others, including me, then take it to PM's?

There's been plenty of coverage of the Islamist terrorism here, I don't get it why we shouldn't debate right wing terrorism alongside that.

Jo Cox

I can remember that day well. I came back home and cried. Jo Cox was an amazing MP who sadly I didn't get to know personally but she was destined for greatness.

Also, I'd include all of the Western Europe and the US, not just UK. These things are often related.

Nowhere have I ever said it doesn't.

I'm demonstrating why one set of terrorists don't get the press other sets of terrorists get. They're all arseholes, every one of them.

Thank you, I appreciate you blessing.

After all, anti-semitism for example cuts across the political spectrum.
It was the Charlottesville mob who chanted "Jews will not replace us".
Far right ideology often lapses into nazism. It deffo deserves our attention.

I am debating it. The thing is, and I'm sure I'm not alone, feel like I am backing the old Right Wingers team from some of the replies I get and it couldn't be further from the truth.

Terrorism is terrorism wherever it comes from, it's equally as bad from all angles and should be stamped out on all grounds

You think I don't know all that? Do you think I haven't been on the receiving end of some rather nasty Right wing thinking? Both directly and indirectly. I'm surprised you have to explain it to me.

Why isn't Right wing extremism given the same attention as Islamists?

Because they don't kill as many people at the moment, thank God. But individually they're equally as dangerous.

And the Finsbury Park attack, that was discussed.

Reading the first line of the opening post, I don't think getting a good debate going was the real purpose of this thread.
