DoDOG Extremism Report

The Department of Defense Inspector General has released this report on supremacist, extremist and criminal gang activity. provides this useful but disturbing analysis. Excerpt:

The IG collected raw data from each of the services on cases and then categorized them for its report on extremism, which can refer to violent, racist, or anti-democratic causes, groups or social movements. Over the last few years, examples of extremism among troops and veterans have run the gamut from participating in the Jan. 6 riot to offensive social media posts and racist graffiti. It has also been reported in both elite units as well as rank and file formations. There have even been reports of servicemembers trying to recruit others to join groups like the neo-Nazi Atomwaffen Division.

However, the data and the report itself appeared to be incomplete.
