Edit: We have our own radical groups

In an editorial in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, Devin Rokyta writes:

The "Three Percenters" like to describe themselves as armed "patriots." We think a more apt description would be terrorists. How else would you describe masked and heavily armed men who routinely gather with the sole intent of intimidating others, most often Muslims? Men who call for an armed uprising and the overthrowing of the government? Men who want the people in an entire religion expelled from the country? There would be no question if their skin color were slightly darker and they were carrying Qurans rather than poster boards decorated with hateful messages, full of misspellings and grammatical errors. In addition to threatening Muslims, members of the group have also been suspected recently of making threats to lawmakers and police/Devin Rokyta, Moscow-Pullman Daily News. More here.

Question: Are you concerned with the growing threat of terrorism from radical Americans?
