Two-Thirds of U.S. Terrorism Tied to Right-Wing Extremists
Data by news site Quartz reveals that almost two-thirds of the terror attacks in the United States last year were carried out by right-wing extremists.
That list includes the case in which neo-Nazi extremist James Fields is accused of driving into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, killing one person. It also includes attacks on a gay bar in Puerto Rico, mosques in Washington, Texas, and Florida, and a vehicle decorated with Jewish iconography in New York.
Meanwhile, 11 attacks were inspired by left-leaning ideologies. And seven were linked to Islamic extremists, including the vehicle-ramming Sayfullo Saipov was arrested for in New York that left eight people dead.
