"The Organizational Dynamics
of FarRight Hate Groups in the
United States: Comparing
There is empirical and anecdotal evidence that far-right hate groups pose a significant threat to public safety. Far-right extremists commit many violent attacks, and some scholars conclude that far-right extremists, especially groups
motivated by religious ideology, are strong candidates to commit future acts using weapons of mass destruction (Gurr &
Cole, 2002; Tucker, 2001).
Research analyzing data from the Extremist Crime Database has shown that active members
of far-right extremist groups have been involved in over 330 homicide incidents in the last 20 years (Freilich, Chermak,
Belli, Grunewald & Parkin; Gruenewald, 2011).
Similarly, a national survey of State law enforcement agencies concluded
that there was significant concern about the activities of far-right extremist groups, and that more states reported the
presence of far-right militia groups (92%), neo-Nazis (89%), and racist skinheads (89%) in their jurisdictions than Jihadi
extremist groups (65%) (Freilich, Chermak & Simone, 2009).
