More Domestic Terrorist Than the Public Realizes
With only a few mentioned in part one of this two part essay, there are actually many more domestic terrorist groups that are coming to light. Domestic terrorism has been around for many years and probably for many more. There are going to be groups or even individuals that will have their own beliefs and may even try to push those beliefs onto others. So because of this domestic terrorism is going to be around for a long time. Looking through history I have found a few domestic groups that weren’t mentioned in part ones essay ...view middle of the document...

The Klan was made up of 6 confederate Army veterans (Extremism in America. 2011). It didn’t take very long for the group to grow into thousands. By 1870 KKK became the catalyst for the resistance of white southerners against the Republican Party Reconstruction-era (KKK, 2013). With blacks gaining more political positions in the south, the KKK dedicated itself to eradicate all blacks from being in any part of higher position than a white person. Violence became prevalent and even had cases such as on January 1871 when nearly 500 masked riders rode in Union County jail and lynched 8 black prisoners (KKK, 2013). The Klan’s activities had become so prevalent that Congress would pass three different enforcement acts, one being the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, which was to enforce the Provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and also made some of the KKK’s tactics federal offenses which would put them in jail longer or even the death penalty (2013). It would also help prohibit conspiracies of jury tampering in activities produced by the Klan. The Act also authorized the president to suspend the writ of habeas corpus if violence rendered efforts to suppress the Klan ineffective. By the time it hit the 1920’s the Klan membership was well over 4 million members nationwide. Once the Great Depression hit the Klan’s membership had depleted until the 1960’s where activity had surged again across the South (KKK, 2013). The KKK have been involved many acts of violence throughout its history. As of 2008 one of its latest instances A woman from Oklahoma was lured over the internet to participate in a Ku Klux Klan initiation and was shot and killed by local Louisiana Klan leader Raymond “Chuck” Foster. Seven other Klan members were charged with accessory to the crime when they helped Foster cover up the murder ("KKK Acts of," ). The KKK has definitely a domestic terrorist because of its ties to the government back in the 1860’s-1890’s. They used intimidation and even murder to get their way and to try to eliminate the black race in the south. They will go to no bounds to get their views across as there are many neo-Nazi’s groups that agree with the basic views of the KKK. One of them is the Phineas Priesthood.
The Phineas Priesthood is a group that opposes the mixing of races, homosexuality, abortion and interracial intercourse. It is also marked by its anti-Semitism, anti-multiculturalism, and opposition to taxation ("Phineas Priests,"). Unlike the KKK Phineas Priesthood does not have meetings or any type of social gathering. There is no membership process, all a person has to do is adopt the beliefs of the Hood and act upon those beliefs. According to the F.B.I. members of the Priesthood are considered terrorist because they plan to blow up federal buildings, abortion clinics, and they tend to rob banks to fund their activities ("Phineas Priesthood,"). No true attacks have been linked to the...
