Racism & White nationalists vs Protestors: The military view

People in US military recognise that White nationalism is one of the biggest threats to national security (after China, cyberterrorism and Iran). They see it as far more of a problem than the protest movements.

.

"The poll, conducted in partnership with the Institute for Veterans an...ies (IVMF) at Syracuse University, found about one-third of all active-duty respondents said they saw signs of white supremacist or racist ideology in the ranks. That's roughly on par with results from other Military Times surveys in recent years.

But troops overall concerns about the dangers posed to the country from extremist and racist ideology appears to be growing. Among all troops surveyed, about 48 percent listed white nationalists as a significant national security threat, roughly the same percentage as Islamic State, al-Qaida and other foreign Islamic jihadists. The white nationalist problem overshadowed troops' worries over North Korea (40.3 percent), Afghanistan (10.3 percent), Iraq (8.5 percent), immigration (21.4 percent) and U.S. protest movements (33.1 percent). Nearly two-thirds of minority service members in the poll called white nationalists a notable threat."

This is from an annual poll that also recognises the experience of racism within the services. The people polled were 93 percent male and 82 percent white and the poll was taken most in early August..

Wow. I can’t imagine how some of them feel being in the military and knowing some in upper ranks, embrace that ideology. I also remember, the FBI, last year, stating that white supremacist militia groups are growing, and are America’s most dangerous, domestic threat. I feel like this country is going backwards to the pre-civil rights era.

Interesting how IS and domestic islamic terrorism are two different categories. If you add them together (and why not, it's the same ideology), they're number 1.

Would cyber terrorism be associated with any nation, say... Russia or Korea?

There's plenty of cyber terrorism coming out of Russia. It's just hard to prove, as the whole impeachment procedure against Trump shows.
