Just 13 Right-Wing Extremists Have Been Charged With Terrorism Since 9/11

Alex Pfeiffer, The Daily Caller, December 8, 2016

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. Other publicly available information reveals no additional federal terrorism indictments for right-wing extremists.

An up-to-date list of terror attacks since 9/11 from the think tank New America shows jihadist attacks have led to 94 deaths in the U.S., while right-wing attacks have killed 50.
