From the Raw Story in the USA:
White supremacist terrorists killed more people in the US last year than any other extremist group: report
17 Jan 2018 at 18:50 ET
As the Huffington Post reported Wednesday, the ADL’s Center on Extremism found that 34 people were killed by extremists last year. Of those, 20 people (or 59 percent) “were killed by right-wing extremists, a designation that includes white supremacists, members of the so-called ‘alt-right’ and ‘alt-lite’, and members of the anti-government militia movement.”
The ADL’s study was published the same day as a report released by the Department of Justice and Homeland Security that appeared to intentionally skew data to overstate the number of people killed in the United States by “foreign-born” Muslim terrorists.

THE DEBATE OVER DOMESTIC TERRORISM LAW For years, the federal government has avoided calling domestic terrorists what they are. Federal law doesn’t treat domestic terrorism as a stand-alone crime, and federal prosecutors are trained to avoid labeling people as terrorists unless they’re facing terrorism-related charges. A new law broadly criminalizing domestic terrorism would be a stretch politically, however. President Donald Trump claims white supremacy isn’t a big problem, and even those who recognize the threat from far-right extremists are split over whether a domestic terrorism law would help address it.
