NPR's Shockingly Honest Report on Islamic Terrorism

It appears the left, despite all their efforts has become, to use their term has been woke to terrorism. I mean after all the daily attacks are hard to ignore.

MARTIN: So Shankar, what would these researchers say to someone who sees these headlines time and time again over the years and the perpetrators are either Muslim or are acting in the name of Islam? Is it unreasonable for them to assume a connection?

VEDANTAM: No, I don't think it's unreasonable at all, Rachel. Many of the reasons driving these disparities in coverage are driven by fairly normal psychological processes. Kearns finds, for example, that Muslims are responsible for a disproportionate number of terrorist attacks in the United States.

They're about 1 percent of the U.S. population, but they carried out about 12 percent of the terrorist attacks that occurred between 2011 and 2015.

After all even if you just count the US the average Muslim is 825 times more likely to commit an act of terror than the Kuffar.

Which answers the question about why the coverage of 12% of attacks is 50% of media. It's because of that 825% aberration from the normal expectation.

1 I looked at the source of the data (Global Terrorism Database), and a few things stood out for the 89 attacks between 2011 and 2015.:

1) The 12% of attacks that were perpetrated by Muslims includes the large majority of fatalities and injuries.

2) The list of 89 attacks includes a lot of hate crimes, many of which can reasonably be called terrorism (multiple murder, arson etc), but also minor stuff (hitting a store clerk for her religion and shouting abuses) that is stretching the definition of terrorism somewhat.

3) There are some attacks where the motive and the perpetrator are unknown, and there isn't any information to even imply a political, racist or religious motive.

3 Yeah but they strait up admitted the disproportion of attacks.

Even with all the skewing they can't get rid of it.

5 When islamist carbombs start going off in their own neighborhoods -- only THEM will Libtards wake up, will probably shriek "WHY DIDNT SOMBODY DO SOMETHING" and blame it on others and not their own sheeplike stupidity.

The leftists who want this will simply smile.

6 88% ... remember that libtards and their leftard masters classify a 5 year old going pew-pew with their fingers a 'terrorist' act (and likewise a visible symbol of Christianity).

7 that 88% includes the 'cant tells' who have the black masks over their heads/faces (the leftist vermin who leftymedia claim are 'protesters'.
