    Why is it we never hear of this?


    Hint: White Christian + Terrorism = Christian Terrorism, and we are seeing it growing here in America with the election of Trump http://www.syracuse.com/state/index...ationwide_see_list_of_47_operating_in_ny.html

    "The organization says it uses publications and statements put out by the groups, reports from law enforcement, field sources and news reports to compile the list. Each group is determined to have practices or beliefs that attack or vilify entire groups of people, most commonly for unchangeable characteristics, according to the center.

    Though Black Separatist groups became the No. 1 most seen hate group with 193 - surpassing the Ku Klux Klan with 130 - the 2017 report characterizes 2016 as being marked by the increased visibility of the radical right.

    This is largely attributed to President Donald Trump's run for office, where several white nationalists made media headlines for openly supporting his candidacy, according to the report."

    Then there is this:

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/15/yes-there-are-christian-terrorists.html

    "Any cable news channels cover in depth the Christian marauders in CAR that are–as we speak–ethnically cleansing tens of thousnads of the minority Muslim population there? These Christian militants “stage brutal attacks...wielding machetes” and have “burned and looted…houses and mosques.” True, this is part of a civil war, but these violent acts are still carried out by militants who publicly self-identify as Christian fighters.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg of Christians committing acts of terrorism.

    But, of course, when President Obama dared to mention at the National Prayer Breakfast last week that we have seen acts of violence perpetrated by Christians, including during the Crusades, some on the right went on the warpath. Rush Limbaugh called Obama’s words an “insult” to Christianity.

    And numerous Fox News anchors were outraged, most notably Eric Bolling, who claimed that the number of people killed in the name of Christianity was “zero.”

    I am not sure all these groups are terrorists. The Catholic groups are right wing opposing some reforms but not terrorists.
