Erin Kearns, an Assistant Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Alabama, made headlines after being recorded telling students right-wing terrorism is worse than islamic terrorism. These claims, based on the number of attacks rather than the number of casualties, were made during Kearn’s previous employment at American University. Kearns states that “only about 12 percent of terrorist attacks in the U.S. have been committed by Muslims”. After obtaining the audio files The College Fix conducted a study that did verify her statement but also shows that right-wing terrorism is responsible for less than half of the fatalities.
