What about left-wing terrorist groups?
Or centrist terrorist groups opposed to a particular social or political issue?
We’ve been told for years that it’s improper to say “Muslim terrorists”, as that makes it seem like all terrorists are Muslim or, even worse, all Muslims are terrorists. But it’s okay to set up a task force to focus only on “right-wing” terrorist threats? As if those are the only ones? That all people with conservative beliefs are painted with the brush of being right-wing terrorists”. This is appalling.
I certainly hope terrorists aren’t missed by your narrow, prejudicial viewpoint.

They're the ones killing cops, threatening to murder legislators and causing insurrection. Did you see the gallows, last week?

"That all people with conservative beliefs are painted with the brush of being right-wing terrorists"

Your rhetoric. Projecting?
