Minneapolis terrorist recruitment capital of the US
More men and boys from a Somali American community in Minneapolis have joined â€“ or attempted to join â€“ a foreign terrorist organization over the last 12 years than any other jurisdiction in the country.
FBI stats show 45 Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined. And as of 2018, a dozen more had been arrested with the intention of leaving to support ISIS. Both numbers are far higher than those of alleged terrorist wannabes who left or attempted to leave the country from other areas in the country where Muslim refugees have been resettled.
With by far the largest Somali American population in the United States - estimates of up to 100,000 - the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground. Investigators told Fox News that early on, al-Shabab recruiting was almost exclusively...
This'll give a more detailed look at one of the groups that the SPLC attacked. I don't know how many years ago I made a comment that the SPLC went overboard on this group.
Since Tony Perkins is such a big supporter of Donald Trump he is going to have to change his tune on queers, however--to get in line with his new social leader.
By the way, I have no problem Wilson American government not wanting to let in these women into the country. However the New York Times in passing seems to have implied that men in the same circumstances have been let in This should not have been doneâť—đź‘Ž
Who ordained the SPLC (Socialist-Progressive Liberal Cabal) to decide who is a hate group in the first place? God didnâ€™t. The government didnâ€™t. Did Emporer Jim give them this power? Due to their twisted agenda, the SPLC is incapable of objective thought and unqualified to pass judgment on others. Nothing they say or do has any legal or moral validity.
Two more examples of the Internet being used to recruit terrorists for Muslim causes.

UPS, you will note that the main quote I had from a Reuters article pointed out that not everybody agreed with SPLC interpretations of them. I wouldn't be surprised if SPLC does make mistakes at times. However many of these organizations SPLC gripe about and gripe back about it, are not exactly perfectly behaved organizations of sun and light either.
No doubt Muslims know how to use the Internet as well as anyone else.
Kathryn Jackson wrote: The group also cited online incitement for the rise. Despite efforts to regulate content on mainstream websites including Facebook, the internet still provides the most fertile ground for hate groups to recruit new members, SPLC said.
The non-profit said the growth of hate groups appeared to spur some who share their ideologies to take violent action. It cited Robert Bowers, who is accused of killing 11 worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October while shouting â€śAll Jews must die.â€ť
As part of SPLCâ€™s count of hate groups, black nationalist groups rose 13 percent to 264 in 2018, an increase SPLC attributed to a backlash against Trumpâ€™s policies.
Some of the SPLCâ€™s targets have criticized the Montgomery, Alabama-based organizationâ€™s findings, saying it mislabeled legitimate organizations.
Earlier this month the founder of the Proud Boys, a self-described men-only club of â€śWestern chauvinists,â€ť sued the center for defamation. He contended the Proud Boys oppose racism, while the SPLC said it stood by its research....

Statistics are a dime a dozen and in general they are unreliable. Statistics had Hilary as as next president. Statistics are to easily forged,manipulated, or polled from a particular area to achieve the desired result. Tell any pro choice advocate the abortion stats and you will get "thats an exaggerated number". Evil can see truth and knows it's name, JESUS CHRIST, but refuses it.
The NYT and the ADL are far from being reliable sources. Groups that are far left extremist like the KKK (Democrat founded and funded) would be called far right and alt right by them.
Jim loves fact check sites so here is one put out by The Week
The report Booker cited found that from 12 September 2001 to the end of 2016, there were 85 deadly attacks in the US by violent extremists, resulting in a total of 225 deaths. Of those deaths, 106 people were killed by far-right extremists, in 62 separate attacks, while 119 people were killed by Islamist extremists, in 23 separate incidents. So while the majority (73%) of the attacks were carried out by far-right extremists, more people were killed by Islamist terrorists.
Whether Muslim or far-right extremists have killed more Americans â€śdepends on how you measure such incidents and which source you useâ€ť, says Politico. â€śSorting through attacks and placing them in the categories of terrorism, violent extremism or hate crimes can sometimes be extremely complicated.â€ť
Ass long as we are sharing info unrelated to the story, here is one for Jim
The up tick of deaths caused by Muslim extremism is reported each day. However, with the recent false flag â€ś Maga hat incident â€ś in Chicago with actor Jussie Smollett it may be safe to say when an arsonist starts a fire, there will be smoke.
There are any number of articles available on the web that show that the â€śfactâ€ť that there is a huge uptick in white supremacist violence has been extrapolated from incomplete and inconclusive evidence. Will Jim pay any attention to those articles? Not on your life. Heâ€™s too wrapped up in pouring gasoline on the mythical fire of endemic racism.
I don't know that I would put too much faith in those statistics Jim, without knowing how loosely the groups are defined. They may have definitions that allow almost anyone to be included in the group, thus allowing someone to "create" the "statistics" they want. I know numbers don't lie (they can't). But sometimes there is a lot of lying going on to get the numbers.
Jim, since you love statisticsâ€”especially the unverified and highly questionable typeâ€”hereâ€™s one for you: According to the Cato Institute, more Americans die in animal attacks than in terrorist attacks. Obviously we should ignore ISIS and concentrate our national security resources on rounding up Fido and Fluffy. In truth, the most dangerous terrorist organization in the United States is one parading as a healthcare organization. Planned Parenthood violently murders more innocent people than all of the Islamic, white nationalist and black racist outfits combined. The only reason they are not on the FBIâ€™s most wanted list is because of the ascendancy of Nazis in the Democratic Party. Nazis, Jim, that you said we should all vote for.

Hmm--to put things in perspective
Janet Reitman wrote: .... White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed far more people since Sept. 11, 2001, than any other category of domestic extremist. The Anti-Defamation Leagueâ€™s Center on Extremism has reported that 71 percent of the extremist-related fatalities in the United States between 2008 and 2017 were committed by members of the far right or white-supremacist movements. Islamic extremists were responsible for just 26 percent. Data compiled by the University of Marylandâ€™s Global Terrorism Database shows that the number of terror-related incidents has more than tripled in the United States since 2013, and the number of those killed has quadrupled. In 2017, there were 65 incidents totaling 95 deaths....

The above excerpt comes from New York Times article, which is fine -except for some of the rough language that is used in it. đź‘Ž
