Though the Anti-Defamation League together with Democrats and the media have been busy hyperventilating over so-called "white supremacy" and demanding new domestic terrorism legislation, the ADL's own data shows 2020 had the lowest number of "domestic extremist-related killings" in at least 12 years.
"According to an annual analysis by ADL's Center on Extremism, domestic extremists were responsible for killing at least 17 people in the U.S. in 15 separate incidents in 2020, a significant decrease from the 45 extremist-related murders in 19 incidents documented in 2019, and the 54 murders in 20 incidents in 2018," the ADL quietly reported earlier this month.
The 17 "killings" appears to be a stretch in itself considering the first "killing" on their list for 2020 is "self-described white separatist and racist skinhead" Jason Edward Galliart -- who committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.
These are the lowest numbers since at least 2008 (I couldn't find the exact number for 2008 in multiple of their reports).
It's worth noting that 2015 and 2016 were so high because of the Muslim terrorist attacks committed in San Bernardino and Orlando.
While "domestic extremist-related killings" as defined by the ADL were way down, the number of homicides in cities throughout the country skyrocketed in the wake of the George Floyd riots -- but as we all know, those homicides don't work in service of the narrative so they're simply ignored.
A study which examined crime rates in a sample of 34 American cities found that "homicide rates jumped by 30 percent from 2019 to 2020, while gun assault and aggravated assault rates climbed 8 percent and 6 percent, respectively," Fox News reported earlier this month.
The 30 percent surge in homicides in one year reportedly "has no modern precedent."
