A report released by the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) Center on Extremism (COE) on Feb. 27 revealed 42 Americans were killed by domestic extremists in 2019, making it the sixth-deadliest year in the country for extremist killings since 1970.

Right-wing extremists were behind 38 of the 42 killed and white supremacists were behind 34 of the deaths. There were 14 instances of white supremacist shootings in 2019, most notably the Chabad of Poway shooting in April and the shooting at a Wal-Mart in El Paso, Tex. in August.

However, the Dec. 10 shooting in Jersey City, N.J. that killed four including a police officer were perpetrated by those who “had expressed Black Hebrew Israelite and anti-Semitic views in the past,” the report stated.

The report also listed a series of policy recommendations, including calling on political leaders to condemn extremism, giving federal law enforcement the resources to better collect data on extremists, designate white supremacist organizations as foreign terror organizations and prevent those who have committed hate crimes from obtaining a firearm.

ADL COE Vice President Oren Segal tweeted that 2019 “was not an anomaly — it’s part of an overall rise in domestic extremist violence in the last decade.”
