Subject: U.S. extremist murder: it's a white thing
'According to a report published by the Center on Extremism of the Anti-Defamation League, ADL,
Tuesday, last year witnessed a marked reduction in domestic-extremism related murders and a return
to the historical predominance of white supremacist perpetrators.
ADL documented 34 murders linked to domestic extremism, a number less than half of the 71
extremist-related killings registered during 2016. However, the report highlights the increasing
role of right-wing extremism, a category that includes white supremacists, members of the so-called
“alt-right” and “alt-lite” movements, and members of the anti-government militia movement.
In 2017, 53 percent of domestic extremist-related killings were perpetrated by white supremacists,
while in the period between 2008 and 2017 it was 71 percent. The report warns that the
“alt-right” movement’s jump from the internet to the physical world raises “the likely
possibility of more such violent acts in the future.”
