Anti-Government Militias: A U.S. National Security Threat

A key extremist group involved in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is the Three Percenter Movement, which according to a recent FBI & Dep. of Homeland Security bulletin, has been planning more attacks. Newlines Institute conducted research on this group for months, which culminated in the release of a March 1 Policy Report — a detailed examination of the movement as a key case study of the phenomenon of anti-government militias. Join our panel discussion on the factors enabling the Three Percenters and other such anti-government militias, the scale of the threat from these actors in the years to come, and what the Biden admin. must do to tackle an increasing challenge for U.S. national security.
