Despite the incessant cries from Republicans about “left-wing” radicalism and violence, the data shows that right-wing extremism is much more prevalent and deadly in the United States. Considering the fact that there are many former and active police officers involved in these right-wing extremist groups, this issue should certainly be drawing more attention.
Rep. Matt Gaetz has been one of the president’s most vocal supporters in Congress and often gets directly to his point, even if it is thinly veiled in coded language. So, again, it should come as no surprise that Gaetz has echoed President Trump’s calls for “law and order” while simultaneously falsely characterizing the diverse protesters who are demanding equality and accountability as a “mob” hell-bent on the destruction of the very country they are trying to improve.
Trump declared that Baghdadi was a vicious and violent person that died “like a dog,” as a coward. In recounting the daring operation, Trump said that Baghdadi was chased by U.S. forces into a dead-end tunnel within the compound, “whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.” Trump said that Baghdadi had dragged three (3) of his own young children into the tunnel with him. After Baghdadi reached the end of the tunnel, realizing there was no way out, he ignited his suicide vest, collapsing the tunnel, killing himself and his three young children.
