"America Has A White Nationalist Terrorism Problem. What Should We Do?" a follow up to my discussion on @Morning_Joe this week. The challenges in preventing domestic terrorism & thoughts on a way forward  https://www.fpri.org/article/2019/05/america-has-a-white-nationalist-terrorism-problem-what-should-we-do/ 

Attaching Figure 1 from the discussion, assessment model comparing international & domestic terrorism threats to the U.S. homeland during different time periods.

Attaching Figure 2. Discussed similarities and differences in terrorist attacks between international jihadists & white nationalists - former is top-down, latter is bottom-up. See @WarOnTheRocks for framework  https://warontherocks.com/2015/01/inspired-networked-directed-the-muddled-jihad-of-isis-al-qaeda-post-hebdo/ 

Regarding ideological inspiration discussed in the article. Jihadists had clerics, white nationalist terrorists have manifestos. Check out this essential read by @intelwire  https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/02/christopher-hasson-was-inspired-breivik-manifesto/583567/
