In the United States, right-wing violence is on the rise

Over the past decade, attackers motivated by right-wing political ideologies have committed dozens of shootings, bombings and other acts of violence, far more than any other category of domestic extremist, according to a Washington Post analysis of data on global terrorism. While the data show a decades-long drop-off in violence by left-wing groups, violence by white supremacists and other far-right attackers has been on the rise since Barack Obama’s presidency — and has surged since President Trump took office.

2. Freepers in denial

One Freep even went so far as to challenge anyone to name ONE act of violence by the right.

Another claimed the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter wasn't a rightie.
