We need a nuanced understanding of how right-wing extremism is changing as a result of the pandemic. Accordingly, CPOST has conducted a systematic analysis of the complete set of individuals arrested by the FBI and other authorities for deadly violence associated with right-wing extremist ideologies from 2015-2020, 108 individuals in all. This will serve as a benchmark for future analyses.
This analysis uses official court documents and media sources of the primary demographics, socio-economic characteristics, militant group affiliations, over a thousand documents.
