All of the extremist killings in the US in 2018 had links to right-wing extremism, according to new report

A new report shows all the extremist killings in 2018 had links to right-wing extremism.

The report's findings are consistent with other fairly recent studies on extremism in the US, which have shown right-wing extremism and violence are on the rise.

There were at least 50 extremist-related killings in 2018, according to the report, making it the fourth-deadliest year on record for domestic extremist-related killings since 1970.

I guess it's nice to have an official report on that. But we've all known it for years. And every time some RWNJ claims that there's extremism and violence on both the right and left, they can't ever produce any proof of left-wing extremism or violence.

Great balance to Trump´s blaming immigrants on crime, when status show that native born native americans have a higher rate of crimes in all categories, except being here illegally, then immigrants leagal or not.

How about the non-extremist killings?

What about them? Does that mean we're not supposed to talk about extremist killings? Are we not supposed to talk about sexual assault until we solve all burglaries? <s>

This thread is about extremist killings.

I agree - violence of any sort should be a subject open to discussion.
