This is primarily a result hatred for immigrants, globalization, the rise in Muslim population in America, mental derangement and ethnic prejudices.
Open use of weapons against common masses, widespread destruction of religious sites, attacks on religious groups, and the killing of targeted religious and ethnic groups has been the hallmarks of domestic terrorism in America.
According to the Combating Terrorism Center’s report, domestic terror has affected the countrymen’s faith in the U.S. government and its functioning (Hamm 2015 and Spaaij2015).
However, occasional attacks at nightclubs and schools, churches, and concerts have sparked fear, hate crimes, extremism, and stereotypical racial sentiments.
A variety of factors are responsible for the rise in domestic terrorist attacks, including radicalization via the internet or influential public icons, radical nationalism (Hamm, Spaaij, 2015).
The result has left America vulnerable, even within the borders of educational institutions. Surprisingly, little has been done to eliminate organized hate crimes.
It is well-known that domestic terrorism has caused the tragic demise of democratic, liberal minds across America.
