  • Violence by far-right is among US’s most dangerous terrorist threats, study finds

    Center for Strategic and International Studies analysis of domestic terrorist incidents found majority have come from far right

    Violence by far-right groups and individuals has emerged as one of the most dangerous terrorist threats faced by US law enforcement and triggered a wave of warnings and arrests of people associated with those extremist movements.

    The most recent in-depth analysis of far-right terrorism comes from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

    In a report released last week, the Escalating Terrorism Problem in the United States, CSIS analyzes 25 years of domestic terrorism incidents and finds that the majority of attacks and plots have come from the far right.

    The report says “the majority of all terrorist incidents in the United States since 1994, and the total number of rightwing attacks and plots has grown significantly during the past six years”, with the far right launching two-thirds of attacks and plots in 2019, and 90% of those in 2020.

    The report adds: “Far-right terrorism has significantly outpaced terrorism from other types of perpetrators.” The second most significant source of attacks and plots in the US has been “religious extremists”, almost all “Salafi jihadists inspired by the Islamic State and al-Qaida”.

    The report shows the far left has been an increasingly negligible source of attacks since the mid 2000s. At that time the FBI defined arsons and other forms of property damage as domestic terrorism during a period some have called the “Green Scare”.

    The CSIS study came during a new wave of terror attacks and plots from white supremacist and anti-government extremists.

    Last Monday, the Department of Justice announced that it had brought an array of charges, including terrorism related offenses, against a US army soldier who subscribed to a mix of white supremacist and satanist beliefs which are characteristic of so-called “accelerationist” neo-nazis like Atomwaffen Division.

    Last week, federal charges were brought on Steven Carillo for the murder of a federal security officer and a sheriff’s deputy. Like the three men arrested for an alleged terror plot in Nevada earlier this month, the FBI says Carillo identified with the extreme anti-government “boogaloo” movement, which is principally concerned with removing government regulation of firearms.

            Trump shares video of 'great people' shouting 'white power' at protesters

            Donald Trump has shared a video showing a supporter yelling "white power" at protesters in a Florida retirement community.

            "Thank you to the great people of The Villages," the president said in a post to his nearly 83 million Twitter followers on Sunday morning. "The Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats will Fall in the Fall. Corrupt Joe is shot. See you soon!!!"

            The video shows a series of clips of protesters on either side of a parade of golf carts with drivers holding American flags and signs supporting the president's re-election campaign.

            In the first clip, a man in a "Veterans for Trump" shirt pump his fist and yells "white power".

                lol he didnt share. he retweeted it. then removed the retweet once he heard what they were saying.

                When you watch a video on twitter the sound is muted unless you click the video.

                  Oh and this thread is hilarious. As ANTIFA/BLM burn down cities. One of them got kicked out of a protest the other day and came back and shot up the park and killed someone.

                    “He just retweeted a racist video because he couldn’t hear it very well! He’s not a racist, damnit!”

                    lulz

                    You’re always good for a laugh Shane.

                        how can you hear something when there is no sound unless you actually click the video?

                        lulz

                        If he had kept the video up. i would say he is a racist. he took off his retweet.

                          Gun control does nothing. I know. I have been shot at.

                          an armed protester was able to take down the shooter
