about this item

While Islamic State-influenced radicals in the U.S. are a major threat in the mind of the public and law enforcement, the election of President Barack Obama, coupled with a national economic downturn, has in recent years intensified anger among white supremacists and anti-government groups to levels not seen since the time of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. According to Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research at the Anti-Defamation League, "We're actually about six years into a major resurgence of right-wing extremism, the largest we've had since the mid to late 1990s." The Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, says it has counted more than 30 acts or plots of domestic terrorism or hate-driven rampages since 2010, an increase from the five years before that.
