White Supremacists and Domestic Terror

And all of the claims and counter-claims I find I rather prefer data. Then I came across this:

www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/22/white-supremacists-rightwing-domes...

Wherein we find that the Center for Strategic and International Studies (an American centrist think tank - so one neither right nor left) who have collected domestic terrorist activity data stretching back to 1994 finds that for the year 2020 that "White supremacists and other rightwing extremists have been responsible for 67% of domestic terror attacks and plots so far this year" and the extreme left bats at around 20%.

Is that any sort of revelation to people on here?

So the main question now is if Trump doesn't go quietly, or the election is in the balance and before the previously-packed Supreme Court; will the extreme right be able to keep its guns in their holsters? It's almost a question from that game we sometimes play on here where every option is a bad one.

(Mind you, this is not as complicated as the lunatic zugzwang of Brexit; just much more ultraviolent and on a larger scale.)
