Domestic Terrorism and Misplaced Priorities
The good news: right wing organizations that foment domestic terrorism are "in disarray."
The number of militia groups in the country has dropped from 858 in 1996 to 152 in 2004, according to a count by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. The charismatic leaders of two of the most prominent white supremacist groups in the United States have died in recent years and others are in jail, leaving a vacuum in leadership.
The bad news: disarray among organized "hate groups" doesn't stop right wing lunatics from speading hatred and violence on their own.
