With the expected hysteria in the aftermath of the tragic shooting in Charleston, S.C., the liberal media is orchestrating its prerequisite rush to judgement, as seen in a stunning graphic displayed on CNN.
According to the graphic, a study by the New America Foundation shows there have been more deaths by “right-wing extremism” since 9/11 than by “Muslim extremism.”
E! News’ John Ekdahl posted an image of the CNN graphic on social media:

As Mark Twain once said, “There are lies, damned lies and statistics.”
One catch to the statistics shown is that they referemce deaths in the United States. But of more interest is that the nine deaths in Charleston are included in the numbers — attributed to right-wing extremism, of course.
A closer look at the report, according to one social media user, shows the New America Foundation study reflected deaths by “jihadists” and “nonjihadists,” with CNN changing the latter to “right-wing extremism.”
CNN takes a stat from New America Foundation labeled “nonjihadists” and changed it to Right Wing Extremism. Unreal. pic.twitter.com/Kw6zWKauMA

As for worldwide deaths attributed to “Muslim extremism,” the numbers are staggering.
A Global Terrorism Index study showed there were 17,958 deaths in just 2013, with most of them occurring at the hands of militant groups Islamic State, al-Qaida, Boko Haram and the Taliban.

shooting at church; what, it’s not Bush’s fault?
Social media users are on to CNN’s antics, as seen in a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@JohnEkdahl @seanmdav Right wing extremism ?

I’m sorry, did that bowl-headed guy shoot 9 Americans to support free-trade, low taxation, and limited government?

@JohnEkdahl @seanmdav That’s just some unassailable logic, right there. #wow

@NumbersMuncher @JohnEkdahl My head is exploding. That’s all I’ve got. Wow.

@JohnEkdahl It would be interesting to find out what defintions they are using. Is everything not done by a Muslim considered ‘right wing”?

@JohnEkdahl @EWErickson Oh look, they get their data from a left leaning outfit.

@GONZ0HUNTER @JohnEkdahl Betting it doesn’t include Major Hasan and Ft Hood either (13 dead, 30 wounded).

@NumbersMuncher @evan_welch Trying to figure out if CNN has been bought by Pravda or AlJezeera.
