Right-wing extremism

Right-wing extremism is a term used to describe right-wing political, social and religious movements that exist outside of and are more radical than mainstream conservatism. In the United States, the extreme right consists primarily of white supremacist movements and anti-government extremist movements, but there are also single-issue right-wing extremist movements, or right-wing movements with an extremist wing, focusing on issues such as abortion or immigration. Statistically, right wing extremists within the last decade account for the majority of domestic extremist-related killings in the U.S.
