CSUSB professor comments on what may cripple right-wing extremist groups
Feb. 5, 2021

An article about federal investigators gathering evidence against right-wing extremist groups indicating that they planned for the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol included comments by Brian Levin, who runs the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

Reuters reported on Wednesday that U.S. prosecutors are weighing charges against members of far-right groups under a federal law usually reserved for organized-crime cases, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO. “You can decapitate these groups in a variety of ways,” Levin said. “Nobody wants to be a member of a group that’s under investigation.”

In Congress, lawmakers are debating possible legislation to address those ideologically motivated attacks, including a new domestic terrorism law that would direct more resources toward investigations of militia groups and other threats. But even a vigorous domestic-terrorism prosecution targeting the leadership of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers would be unlikely to curb right-wing extremism in the U.S.

“We are going to see a reduction in activities of some of these larger, over-the-top groups, and unfortunately see an increase in activities of more fragmented loners, duos and cells who dine from a buffet of grievance and anger,” said Levin. “The threat is not the groups. The threat is the significant divisions and pressure that exist in this country.”
