DHS Warns of ‘Right-Wing Sovereign Citizen Extremists’

While the White House held a Countering Violent Extremism summit this week to talk about “extremist ideologies that radicalize” – not radical Islam in particular but myriad forms of extremism domestic and foreign – CNN reported that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has circulated an intelligence assessment on the “domestic terror threat from right-wing sovereign citizen extremists.”

The assessment, reviewed by CNN, was produced in coordination with the FBI and “counts 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010,” the news group reported on Feb. 20.

According to the report, “(Sovereign citizen) violence during 2015 will occur most frequently during routine law enforcement encounters at a suspect’s home, during enforcement stops and at government offices.”
