Far-Left Extremism Study Warns of Possible “Mass-Casualty Event”

Three years ago, author Ed Klein discovered an FBI investigation that Leftist activists traveled to the Middle East during the Obama Administration to be trained by Islamic terrorists. When one takes this into account, the tactics outlined by researchers in their manuscript make sense.

Report On Rising Far-Left Extremism Raises Concerns Of Possible ‘Mass-Casualty Event’

By Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

A new academic paper studying the rise of violent, far-left extremist networks warns of the possibility of “attacks on vital infrastructure” and even a potential “mass-casualty event.”

The Network Contagion Research Institute’s report warns that militant anarcho-socialist networks are instigating violence in ways that parallel Islamist terrorists and white supremacist groups.

The NCRI’s alerts have proved prescient in the past: the institute released a report warning of spikes in anti-Semitic extremism shortly before the October 2018 Tree of Life Synagogue mass shooting that left 11 people dead.

The new report, which was released on Sept. 14 has received little media attention but sounds alarms about an “online structure supporting anarcho-socialist extremism” that “appears to be rapidly growing” and supporting real-world violence.

“Anarcho-Socialist militias which explicitly glorify Martyr narratives, classic authoritarian narratives, and revolutionary narratives are now formally organizing—and are growing,” the report adds.
