Dept. of Homeland Security Warns that White Supremacists Now Pose the Greatest Threat to America

In its "Annual Threat Assessment" released yesterday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned that the greatest threat that America faces today is the rise of violent white supremacist groups across the nation calling it the most persistent and lethal threat in the homeland.”

Chad F. Wolf, Dept. Homeland Security: “I am particularly concerned about white supremacist violent extremists who have been exceptionally lethal in their abhorrent, targeted attacks in recent years.”

The report notes that such groups have carried out more acts of violence in the United States than any other organized threat.

CNN: "Since 2018, White supremacists have conducted more lethal attacks in the US than any other domestic extremist movement, demonstrating a "longstanding intent" to target racial and religious minorities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, politicians and those they believe promote multi-culturalism and globalization, according to the report."

Americans recognize the threat and regard President Trump's rhetoric as part of the problem. Recent polling found 64% of voters believe Trump has not done enough to denounce white supremacist groups such as the Proud Boys which the President refused to condemn during last week's debate.

New York Times: “This threat assessment confirms two things: that white supremacist extremists are the top domestic threat to the homeland, and they are often inspired by President Trump’s rhetoric,” said Representative Bennie Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi and the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee."
