White supremacists have committed at least 73 murders since the far-right rally two summers ago in Charlottesville, Virginia.
That comes from a report released Thursday by the Anti-Defamation League that says 39 of the killings were clearly motivated by hateful, racist ideology.
The violence of the Unite the Right rally has led to an increase in white supremacist activity, according to the report, which is titled Two Years Ago, They Marched in Charlottesville. Where Are They Now?
The violence on the streets of Charlottesville has kindled two major tracks of white supremacist activity, the ADL said. The first is the rampant dissemination of propaganda designed to promote their views and attract attention. The other, more troubling track is a broader series of violent attacks in the two years since Unite the Right.
Among those attacks were the shootings at a Parkland high school, the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, the Poway Chabad and Saturdays attack at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
According to the report, the recent attacks are part of a four-year resurgence in white supremacist activity and activism driven in large part by the rise of the alt right.
The Unite the Right rally in August 2017, which left one counterprotester dead, drew far-right extremists from at least 39 states and presented approximately 50 different extreme-right movements, groups and entities, according to the report.
More than a dozen Unite the Right attendees have been convicted and sentenced for crimes related to violence committed during the rally, most notably James Alex Fields Jr. of Ohio, who was sentenced to two life sentences plus 419 years for deliberately driving his car into a crowd of protesters, killing Heather Heyer and injuring dozens more.

And young black men have killed other black men to make up the rest of the shootings.
not white supremacists, sick freaks
The author is really being told off in the comments section of that newspaper. Some people really do get it!
It’s like a bad weekend in Chicago ...
Every shooting done by a black person must be black supremacism using the same standards ...
Any place that allows comments gets some really good stuff. Yahoo comes to mind.
El Paso was a lib.
There were 306 murders in Chicago YTD
The race industries are suffering from the absurdity of identity politics.
Look for more stupidity as industry fights for their businesses.
73! A fake number. Even if true, over two years, that is not even close to a weekend of black shootings in Baltimore and Chicago.
Call me a white supremicist (I an not) and I will call you a Black overlord, which you are.
Oh no, some people think something and others who think that also thought killing people was a way to go about things!
Phooey on any type of supremacist ideology, but this is the U.S. and ideology does not cause violence and death, people who wish terror and harm upon others do and sometimes they happen to be white supremacists.
Andrew Breitbarts 11 second commentary on this:
ADL should spend their time defending rapist murderers like Leo Frank.
The article says according to the ADL but doesn’t give a link to th ADL stats so it’s fake news as far as I’m concerned. Besides, the ADL wants gun control laws which tells me they’re just a bunch of leftists and in this case, have no memory of the late 1930s to mid 40s.
More than a dozen Unite the Right attendees have been convicted and sentenced for crimes related to violence committed during the rally...
Never heard that before. I'd be interested in a source. I'll bet that many, or most, of these attendees were counter-protesters.
Yes! Also, this article relies on some fake study by the ADL.
