Despite the incessant cries from Republicans about “left-wing” radicalism and violence, the data shows that right-wing extremism is much more prevalent and deadly in the United States. Considering the fact that there are many former and active police officers involved in these right-wing extremist groups, this issue should certainly be drawing more attention.
“The racial justice movement, the Black Lives Matter movement, is a particular target of these organizations. Obviously, if you’re a white supremacist you don’t care for racial justice and these are people who you want to stop from expressing their views and reforming American democracy in a positive direction. The government needs to be paying attention to this.”
