Domestic terrorists killed his son. He wants Trump to remember that America makes extremists, too.
“A lot of people think these are disgruntled people who are out of work, but doctors, lawyers and FBI agents have all been involved with sovereign citizens,” Paudert said. “They hate government and they’re willing to kill and be killed for their beliefs.”
Of the 66 criminal justice/military homicides perpetrated by al-Qaeda and its associated movement and far-right extremists from 1990 to 2015, 54 of those deaths — more than 80 percent — came at the hands of the far right, according to an analysis by the University of Maryland’s START (Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism) program.
“An example of this would be an antigovernment extremist who hunts down a police officer because his ideological beliefs demand that he fight back against the government, particularly law enforcement.”
Ryan Lenz, the editor of the SPLC’s Hatewatch blog, said the key to combating far-right terror groups is forcefully engaging them.
If the Trump administration chooses to ignore the far-right threat, he said, it is risking calamity.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/02/23/domestic-terrorists-killed-his-son-he-wants-trump-to-remember-america-makes-extremists-too/?tid=sm_tw&utm_term=.0166ab909a4c
