Professor tells students that right-wing terrorism more of a threat than Islamic terrorism

9/11 September 11th Attacks

A professor at American University recently taught students that right-wing terrorism in the United States is actually more of a pressing threat to American citizens than Islamic terrorism based on the number of attacks, not the death toll.

According to audio clips of her lectures originally posted on American’s e-learning software Blackboard over the summer and obtained by The College Fix, Professor Erin Kearns said Americans seem most afraid of Islamic terrorists, but that so-called right-wing extremists here have actually committed a higher number of attacks.

An analysis by The College Fix of Global Terrorism Database stats, however, finds that while radical Islamic terrorists carry out fewer attacks, they are far more deadly attacks than other types of terrorism in the United States and have – by a wide margin – killed and injured a majority of the victims in terrorist attacks in America between 2011 and 2016.
