(CNN) -- On the evening of March 19, Tom Clements, the director of Colorado's prison system, was shot and killed when he answered the door of his home near Colorado Springs.
The slaying sparked a police chase that ended a few days later in Texas, with authorities finally killing the suspect, 28-year-old Evan Ebel, in a shootout. It was soon discovered that Ebel had been part of a violent white supremacist gang during the eight years he spent in Colorado prisons.
Clements was the latest victim of increasingly active violent right-wing extremists. While American politicians and the U.S. public continue to focus on the threat from jihadist extremists, there seems to be too little awareness that this domestic form of political violence is a growing problem at home.
From 2002 to 2007, only nine right-wing extremists were indicted for their roles in politically motivated murders and other types of ideologically motivated violent assaults. But between 2008 and 2012, the number mushroomed to 53, according to data collected by the New America Foundation.
Fifteen right-wing extremists were indicted in 2012 -- including six who were involved in a militia in Georgia that accumulated weapons, plotted attacks on the government and murdered a young U.S. Army soldier and his 17-year-old girlfriend, who they suspected were planning to rat out the group to authorities. Seven claimed membership in the anti-government Sovereign Citizens movement and allegedly murdered two policemen in Louisiana. And two had gone on a murderous rampage the previous year, killing four people before they were arrested in California, where they told police they were on their "way to Sacramento to kill more Jews."
By comparison, in 2012, only six people who subscribed to al Qaeda's ideology were indicted on terrorism-related charges in the United States[.]

Was it really political? Or gang violence? Or personal? Or just what criminals and nutcases do?
Where do you draw the line between gangs that cater to particular ethnic groups, and bigoted hate groups, and radical fringe political organizations?
You can always count on CNN, the Communist “News” Network, to tell lies.
I think I will go to my lower level bunker and load up all my illegal magazines with un-registered ammo for all my illegal 2A tools...
What on earth is going on in this country????
MSM will play the race card all day long.
But, if there is a Muslim involved they bring out the kid gloves.
“I must have been a workplace dispute.”
BS! Some Muslims want us all dead. DEAD.
Probably not all Muslims but the ones that don’t need to clean up their neighborhood.
If Gov Perry found out he’d probably tell.
The big lie is here.
How many reichtag fires does it take to bring down a republic?
I wonder if Peter Bergen has written a column on the violence in Detroit or Chicago?
The drumbeat intensifies. These fools are trying to whip up a war and blame us. Remember the names.
If a guy is white he a right wing extremist. If the guy is a Black Panther-it is OK. BS.
And so it begins. Let it be known that Peter Bergin, a British/American (and the director of the New America Foundation, a liberal think tank in Washington, D.C., as well as being CNN’s go-to guy) fired the first shot.
That line IS in the Oath for Enlisted and Non Commissioned Members of the Armed Forces, but NOT in the Officer's Oath:
Please note though - the first and supreme position is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic while the remainder of the oath is subordinate to that position. If you believe that an order given is unconstitutional you are on oath to refuse it.
You will suffer political consequences for it - just ask Michael New.
Whats O`Bozo and his assclown media circus doing about that?
The white supremacists’ nearest relative, the KKK, are purely a creation of the left. That has to be noted on every liberal call-in talk show and in every newrag’s letters to the editor page.
howare white supremacist groups right wing?
Just like Hitler’s Nazi party (you know the national socialist party of the german workers party) the Nazi party was Right wing, or so I’m told by the MSM on a regular bacis, go figgure
CNN is getting a nut off this one.
One day we may all have to belong to a white supremecist organisation just to survive. The same reason whites join them in prison to survive from Hispanics and blacks.
We are in the minority now boys. The blacks joined the Panthers and they aren’t called racist, but let us form a militia for protection and we will be hunted like animals.
is this the same media which ignores the left wing nuts, how about a terrorist working at colleges or a man , OK fairy boy who started his political life at a terrorist house and now Hollywood glorifies them and soon in an upcoming movie of which I and I hope other conservatives will not pay to watch but I;m sure many will sadly and they will give their money to the left wing nuts who glorify these nut bags
Should also be pointed out that New America Foundation is part of the Soros group of far left advocacy groups:
