The Daily Caller Compared the Number of Right-Wing Extremists Charged with Terrorism to Jihadis Charged
By Alex Pfeiffer | The Daily Caller
A Daily Caller analysis found that just 13 far-right extremists have been indicted on federal terrorism charges since Sept. 11, 2001, despite liberal journalists, groups and academics spreading the narrative that far-right extremists are just as or more dangerous than Islamic terrorists.
Both the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center maintain lists of right-wing extremists. The lists combined contain 13 individuals charged with federal terrorism or terrorism-related charges.
The Department of Justice has made public a list of 580 individuals convicted of terrorism and terror-related charges between 9/11 and the end of 2014, and Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office compiled a list of 131 individuals implicated in terrorism from March 2014 to June 22, 2016. Neither of these lists contain far-right terrorists.
