A new study finds that protests in California are getting more violent.

[R]esearch shows that along with a rise in hate crimes in California… that violent political confrontations are also increasing.

“We are seeing more of these mega rallies of white nationalists in the last two years than in the previous ten to twenty nationally,” Levin says.

Levin says as Californians become more politically divided he sees no end in sight.

“California is a bellwether,” says Levin. “Keep your seat belts fastened.” [source]

Earlier this year, we began tracking cases of politically-motivated violence, including a high number of attacks against Trump supporters.  We’ll be bringing back that map as we start the Low Intensity Conflict Report, Forward Observer‘s intelligence product on the next (or should we say, current) domestic conflict.  You can gain access to our daily intelligence reporting, as well as our weekly summary, through your subscription.  Your dollars are supporting our hard working intelligence veterans, who track the likelihood and status of a widespread domestic conflict.  Subscribe here.
