From the FBI to the DHS to state police, U.S. law enforcement failed to see the threat of white nationalism. Now they have no idea how to stop it. Read next week’s cover story now.
White supremacists and other far-right extremists have killed far more people since Sept. 11, 2001, than any other category of domestic extremist.
The Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism has reported that 71% of the extremist-related fatalities in the United States between 2008 and 2017 were committed by members of the far right or white-supremacist movements.
These statistics belie the strident rhetoric around “foreign-born” terrorists that the Trump administration has used to drive its anti-immigration agenda.
These statistics raise questions about the United States’ counterterrorism strategy, which for nearly two decades has been focused on American and foreign-born jihadists, overshadowing right-wing extremism as a legitimate national-security threat.
