ADL report

2018 was a particularly active year for right-wing extremist murders: Every single extremist killing — from Pittsburgh to Parkland — had a link to right-wing extremism.

2018, domestic extremists killed at least 50 people in the U.S., a sharp increase from the 37 extremist- related murders documented in 2017, though still lower than the totals for 2015 (70) and 2016 (72). The 50 deaths make 2018 the fourth-deadliest year on record for domestic extremist-related killings since 1970.

Firearms remain the weapon of choice for extremists who kill. Guns were responsible for 42 of the 50 deaths in 2018, followed by blades or edged weapons.

Plenty more detail in the report for those who want it.


Interesting to compare this with Riverrat’s figures:

Right-wing extremists
are responsible for the vast majority of extremist-related murders over the last decade

Right-Wing Extremism (all movements): 73.3%
Left-Wing Extremism (including anarchists & black nationalists): 3.2%
Islamist Extremism: 23.4%

Note: Total deaths include both ideologically and non-ideologically motivated killings.

And in New Zealand
Christchurch shootings: 49 dead in New Zealand mosque attacks

49 people shot dead at two mosques. The Bangladesh cricket team were minutes away from one of the mosques. The attackers also seem to have attached bombs to cars in the area.
