    “The Rising Right-Wing Homegrown Terror Threat in the US” https://theconversation.com/the-rising-homegrown-terror-threat-on-the-right-78242 Given the spontaneous nature of so much far-right violence, counterterrorism policies should target the dissemination of white supremacist ideology. See “Challengers from the Sidelines : Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right” (Combating Terrorism Center at West Point) https://info.publicintelligence.net/CTC-ViolentFarRight.pdf and “Terrorism in America After 9/11” (New America Foundation) https://www.newamerica.org/in-depth/terrorism-in-america/
    “Despite an uptick in far-right violence and the Trump administration’s plan to increase the Department of Homeland Security budget by 6.7 percent to US$44.1 billion in 2018, the White House wants to cut spending for programs that fight non-Muslim domestic terrorism. This approach is bound to weaken the authorities’ power to monitor far-right groups, undercutting public safety.”
