White supremacists in the self-styled “alt-right” movement are responsible for racist violence that’s left more than 100 people dead or wounded. That’s according to the Southern Poverty Law Center in a new investigation titled “The Alt-Right Is Killing People.” It finds 13 “alt-right”-related fatal episodes committed by young white men since 2014, including mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina; Isla Vista, California; Roseburg, Oregon; and Quebec City in Canada. The Southern Poverty Law Center reports, “Websites like Breitbart, Reddit and 4chan have fueled the growth of the alt-right by spreading radicalizing propaganda designed to nourish white male resentment over cultural and demographic changes.”
