THREAD: The insurrection we saw in #WashingtonDC yesterday was an example of how political violence isn’t limited to the fringes of the far-right: it permeates even mainstream spaces. Insurrectionist and right-wing accelerationist dogma that insists on the utility of political violence and terrorism that has flourished within the far-right for decades emerged in our nation’s capital yesterday.

We identified 940 hate groups operating throughout the US in 2019. Specifically, the numbers of anti-LGBTQ+, anti-immigrant and white nationalist groups all increased. #YearInHate

Read more: splcenter.org/year-hate-and-… The total number of hate groups has fallen since 2018, when we counted a record high 1,020 active in the US. This drop results from:

2️⃣ more far-right extremists with white supremacist views congregate online.

“I just remember seeing Heather Heyer’s eyes. I thought ‘that’s what someone’s eyes look like when you’re dead'” said Jean Peterson, who was run over by James Fields during the "Unite the Right" rally. Today, prosecutors focused on the moment Fields drove his car into the crowd. Charlottesville Police Detective Jeremy Carper said Fields' car had blood stains on it, and sunglasses + a water bottle were stuck to it. The grill + passenger side mirror fell off. Ryan Kelly, a former photographer for the @DailyProgress, said Fields didn’t hit the brakes.
