    Default America Has A White Nationalist Terrorism Problem. What Should We Do?

    An article by Clint Watts, who was once active on the Forum and his bio has time in the FBI. Now he comments on CT and information warfare, so US readers may have heard of him.

    So a couple of passages:
    A decade of neglect and turning a blind eye to the rising current of white supremacist movements, combined with the rise of political divisiveness built on racial, religious, and ethnic divides, has brought an unprecedented modern wave of domestic terrorism.
    (Later) If left unabated, the pattern of jihadists (Top-down, Directed-Networked-Inspired) will reverse itself for white nationalist terrorists as they grow in strength (Bottom-up, Inspired-Networked-Directed).

    Default Siege: The Atomwaffen Division and Rising Far-Right Terrorism in the United States

    Alerted by a "lurker" to this article, published by the Dutch ICCT and the summary:
    In the past several years, the United States has witnessed a concerning rise in far-right extremism and terrorist violence. Attackers in Oak Creek, Charleston, and Pittsburgh emerged from an increasingly emboldened radical right, which has grown in size and ambition in recent years. The Atomwaffen Division—a small, neo-Nazi terrorist organisation—is part of this movement. This Policy Brief tracks the reasons behind the American far-right’s rise and increasing turn to terrorism, and warns that the threat is likely to imminently worsen. To illustrate this trend, Atomwaffen’s story is applied as a case study. This Policy Brief will conclude with a series of recommendations for policymakers looking to understand and address the threat posed by rising violence from the far-right.
    The PDF has twenty pgs and has not been read.

    Portland Oregon is supposed to be the scene of dueling protests this weekend between various elements of the white nationalist and anti-government hard right vs. ANTIFA/left-wing.

    Conservative journalist Andy Ngo who was injured in an ANTIFA attack a couple of months ago in Portland is raising concerns about the city police force's abilities to handle this weekend's events should things get out of hand.

    Journalist Andy Ngo, who survived a brutal attack by Antifa members in June, said Friday that Portland police are not prepared to control Saturday's planned standoff between the hate group and far-right demonstrators.

    “I’m really concerned about the Antifa-versus-right-wing protest happening tomorrow. I think it has the potential to be a powder keg,” Ngo told “Fox & Friends.”

    “In Portland, political violence is a banality now," he said. "However, the demonstrations are looming in the shadows of the recent mass shootings by the far-left and the far-right ideologues and their extremist elements who are broadcasting their desires for bloodshed. On top of that, police seem to be at a breaking point. They’re severely understaffed.”
