History Markers : Terror From the Right: 1995 - 2014 | splc.org

Below is a concise summary of stories of plots, conspiracies and racist rampages, 1995 to 2014. Target? Democratic America. The number in parentheses is the count of how many events actually occurred.


First event was July 28, 1995: Anti-government extremist Charles Ray Polk indicted by federal grand jury for plotting to blow up the Internal Revenue Service building in Austin, Texas.


Last event dated June 8, 2014: Jerad Miller, 31, and his wife, Amanda, 22, shoot two police officers. The Millers perceived law enforcement as "oppressors" and reportedly told neighbors about their plans.

* * NOTE: SPLC has updated this list AFTER 2014.  Events below ones I think should be mentioned.  

2015 San Bernadino, California Attack.

2017 Mass Shooting at a country-music show at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas 

Sadly, there continue to be additions to the list.  No point splitting hairs over what constitutes a "terrorist act".

Some plots are aimed at the government.  
Some people just aim at anything! Reason unknown.  (O.o)

Difference Between Politics and Religion

Politics and religion. What's the difference?

In case one might think the lines are blurred. They're not!

The difference between politics and religion is summed up in two “C” words. Compromise. Conviction.

(Assumption: Politics in democratic or self-governing countries. Obviously in dictatorships or similar forms of government, compromise is not entertained and conviction ain't worth diddly squat! It's just Rule by The Iron Hand. Whoever don't like it can escape/relocate, go to prison or die!)


 

In politics, when you're trying to resolve matters or issues, one must often build a “bridge of compromise”, in order to satisfy or respond to the varying demands of the general diverse population or citizenry, because they are all a part of the community. In politics, although it's said that laws and policies enforced and implemented are the good of ALL, that's not always the case and decisions are often made as a matter of expediency.

In religion or matters of faith, there is no compromise. You either believe it or you don't. You adhere to the doctrine or you don't. You don't have authority to change, to bind or to unbind. When you committed, you submitted. The community is only made up of believers. When it comes to their politics they know where to draw the line because decisions made are matters for eternity.

OK. So after talking this over with myself, it seems a revision is needed.

Politics versus Religion? The difference is two “C” words plus two “E” words. Compromise. Conviction. Expediency. Eternity.

* * *

NOTE: For the record. Can't speak for other faiths. But there's no such thing as a Christian nation. There are nations where Christians live. Christians are a part of a kingdom which is not restricted or limited by man-made boundary lines or governments. We were instructed to go into all the world preaching the Good News. We were warned that we might have to lay down our own lives. But we were never commanded to kill anybody! So if somebody says something different? They're wrong! Anybody who killed or is killing in the name of Jesus Christ? They're wrong!  But that's another discussion.



* * * Additional thoughts: * * *


The line blurring is very disturbing. The “ISIS brand” is built on being a Muslim. A faithful Muslim. That's their foundation and they make it plain that if you're not for them, you're against them; and if you're against them, then you've got to go!

This is a bigger problem for Muslims than it is for non-Muslims. Why? Because it's the followers of Islam who are being divided. "A house divided against itself can not stand."

When a division occurs, particularly in matters of faith, "the faithful" need to make sure they're on the right side.

For Muslims, since it's a faith in Allah, the followers need to know if they're making their God angry! Because an angry God can show you “10 thousand deaths” way worse than anybody on earth, like ISIS, can show you! “It's a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.

A Muslim needs to decide two things. (1) Is ISIS sent by Allah? (2) If not, then a Muslim needs to decide who they fear the most. Allah or ISIS?

Can't their God deliver them from evil? When those decisions are made, the "line" becomes "un-blurred".

Don't know how the Muslim community is going to overcome this. But if they don't employ diligent efforts to make a clear distinction and differentiation between “which is witch” … then ... dare I say it? … the good is going to suffer with and for the bad. I'm no prophet. But blind people can see this coming!


- American Muslims should lead the charge in this effort, i.e. unblurring the lines. Agree or disagree?



If you're going to lay down your life for something, it should be something worth laying your life down for.

Bollywood Actress Priyanka Chopra to Play Lead Role in 'Quantico'

"Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is ready to take over America."


Quantico TV series

Welcome Ms. Chopra! What took you so long?? Never mind. You're here now. So!  You're going to play the role of an FBI Agent in the TV series "Quantico"? That was an excellent casting choice considering how well you acted in both of the "Don" Hindi films with Shah Rukh Khan. You will also star with him in "Don 3"?  Can't say you don't stay busy.  :)  Viewed the official trailer for "Quantico".  Looks intense. A frame up? Well that sucks!! Why do the true and loyal patriots always have to be the ones who get set up? Oh well! Let's just hope the plot holds up, and the main storyline doesn't get buried in a horribly written script. Best wishes for your success Ms. Chopra.
