Far-Right Extremist Groups

Ethno-nationalist and white supremacist movements in the United States and Europe include far-right political parties, neo-Nazi movements, and apolitical protest groups. European ethno-nationalist groups believe that a nation should be composed of a single ethnicity, and endorse anti-immigrant and particularly anti-Muslim xenophobia. Both in the United States and Europe, these groups often espouse a "Great Replacement" theory, claiming that foreign migrants will eventually replace "dominant" white populations if action against them is not taken. Many have an insidious online presence and primarily target youth for recruitment through social media and other means.
