Forget about Syria. According to Slate.com, the most dangerous religious extremists originate from inside the borders of the United States. They can migrate across state lines from North and South Carolina to other areas of the United States without being scrutinized.
Slate.com reported, that out of the “27 fatal terror attacks inflicted in this country since 9/11, 20 were committed by domestic right-wing extremists.”
Last week, Robert Lewis Dear, originally from North Carolina, killed three and wounded nine at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado. In an online forum, Dear reportedly spoke of Jesus and the “end times.”
The killing of Americans by this brand of domestic terrorist does not start or end there. Slate.com tracked the religious extremist killing back to 1996, when Eric Rudolph, a “Holocaust denier” traveled from North Carolina to Atlanta, bombed the ’96 Olympics, killing one person and injuring more than 100.
What is even more shocking than the killing of Americans by Americans is that while Republican presidential candidates and state governors are trying to ban Syrian refugees from entering the United States, domestic terrorists from North Carolina are allowed to freely cross state lines under the Supreme Court’s interpretation of Article IV of the Constitution.
