Political Violence in The United States


Violent Political Acts committed in the United States

Probably worth mentioning how several organized groups (far-left and far-right) have been also engaged in violent activities.

Far-Left:

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Fascist_Action (British)
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifaschistische_Aktion (German)
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifascistisk_Aktion (Swedish)
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antifa_(United_States) (American)

Far-Right:

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alt-right (~American)
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain_First (British)
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_Defence_League (British)

Source of violence/rioting/protesting worth separating:

  • Politics (people with different ideas about how the Country should be run)
  • Nationalism (people taking pride )
  • Provacatists (people who purposely say things to cause trouble)
  • State actors (other Countries getting involved in US politics, see: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/18/us/politics/russian-operatives-facebook-twitter.html)

Possibly end the article on the note that there is a global growing political divide. This is something that was also seen post-World War I and II.
