M.N.: Let us face it: behind these numbers is the intense public rage at Obama, and the racial component is just the small and insignificant part of it, more of the convenient and primitive emotion than anything else. This intense rage is directed at the general incompetence of the past Administration (to put the other hypothetical notions and explanations aside for now) which is felt intuitively, affectively ("political passions") rather than is analyzed rationally and understood consciously by the masses. The independent and strong "intellectual class" (find any other names for it that you wish, and this term should also include the FBI and other Government structures) has a duty to understand, to interpret, and to translate these raw political emotions into the conscious conceptual ideas, thoughts, and the plans of actions. This is the huge, subtle, sophisticated job. 
I also have to say that Mr. Trump was absolutely correct when he said that white extremists are the "very small group of people with the very serious problems". This is probably true statistically. But "twisted" they are, very much so. And dangerous they are, very much so. We have to assess this situation objectively. 
It would be a disaster if the Obama's Administration lack of competence is replaced by the same on the part of the Trump's Administration. Any Government is just as good as the people who make it and who work for it. America has a lot of good competent people, including the present Trump Administration. They should continue working for the Government, and the Government should continue its efforts to attract good people. They work for America, not for Trump, and regardless of the effective term length of his Administration.

Congressman Accuses Justice Department, FBI Of Stonewalling On Domestic Terrorism Threat

"Federal law enforcement has been criticized for focusing too much on decreasing Islamic-linked terrorism and not enough on the rise of violent right-wing extremism in the U.S. The threat is largely shielded from the public because of the lower-level charges.
An example is former Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Hasson, an avowed white nationalist arrested last month with a cache of weapons. Hasson allegedly planned to kill progressive politicians and journalists in what prosecutors have described as a domestic terrorism plot. But Hasson hasn’t been charged with terrorism, only with a series of weapon and drug crimes. 
About 110 people were arrested in the 2017 budget year after being investigated for crimes inspired by foreign terrorist groups, such as ISIS; 30 of those faced terrorism charges, the Post reported. The following year, 100 were arrested and nine faced terrorism charges.
In the same time span, 150 domestic terrorism suspects were arrested the first year, and 120 the following year, according to FBI figures provided the Post. No terrorism charges were filed against any of them.
Early this year, the Anti-Defamation League released a report that said attackers with ties to right-wing extremist movements killed at least 50 people in the U.S. in 2018. That was nearly the total number of Americans killed by all domestic extremists."

Congressman Accuses Justice Department, FBI Of Stonewalling On Domestic Terrorism Threat

The congressman heading the Committee on Homeland Security has sent an angry letter accusing the FBI and Department of Justice of failing to brief lawmakers on the threat of domestic terrorism. He sent the letter just hours before 49 people were killed at New Zealand mosques and police arrested a suspect who had praised American white supremacists.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) on Wednesday sent his third letter to the FBI and the Justice Department demanding a committee briefing on the “evolving threat of domestic terrorism” after earlier requests were ignored. “Regrettably, this is just the latest example of non-cooperation on this important issue,” Thompson wrote. He asked again for a briefing, this time for the end of March. The committee plans to hold hearings on the issue in coming months.
Thompson on Friday expressed sympathy and offered prayers to all those affected by the brutal attacks on two mosques in Christchurch. 
“The terrorism in New Zealand underscores that we must not ... ignore the domestic terrorism threat,” he said in a statement. “We must all work together to counter domestic terrorism, including those who feed it and allow it to spread.”
Federal law enforcement has been criticized for focusing too much on decreasing Islamic-linked terrorism and not enough on the rise of violent right-wing extremism in the U.S. The threat is largely shielded from the public because of the lower-level charges.

The ADL has also reported that 71 percent of the extremist-related fatalities in the United States from 2008 to 2017 were committed by members of the far right or white-supremacist movements. Islamic extremists were responsible for 26 percent.
Some experts have pointed to Trump’s incendiary rhetoric as a cause.
“If you have politicians saying things like our nation is under attack, that there are these marauding bands of immigrants coming into the country, that plays into this right-wing narrative. They begin to think it’s OK to use violence,” Gary LaFree, a criminologist at the University of Maryland told the Post.
Trump said Friday, when asked about the Christchurch massacre: “I don’t really” see a rise in white nationalism. “I think it’s a small group of people.”

"Auerbach shows how the Ochs-Sulzberger New York Times and the Reform Movement — led by anti-Zionist zealots like Judah Magnes and groups like the American Council for Judaism —formed a kind of interlocking directorate that turned a cold shoulder to Jews coming under Nazi rule. He demonstrates how the Times’ emphasis on “universalism” extended to concealment of Hitler’s destruction of European Jewry, by now the subject of Deborah Lipstadt’s Beyond Belief(1986) and Laurel Leff’s Buried By the Times (2005). Nor were the Nazis the sole beneficiaries of the Times‘ universalism. The paper’s Moscow bureau chief Walter Duranty depicted Soviet Odessa as a place “far more conducive to Russian Jewry than … Palestine itself.” (Duranty’s rank dishonesty is now better known for his apologetics on behalf of Stalin and the dictator’s decimation of the Ukrainians.)"
