What Do We Make of Extremism After Wisconsin? On August 6, a mosque in Joplin, Missouri, was burned down. The day before, a gunman entered a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, killing six worshipers and wounding several others. These incidents point to a broader pattern of right-wing domestic terrorism. In fact, since the September 11th attacks, a number of Sikhs have been targeted, whether because they are confused for Muslims or to advance an anti-immigrant agenda — not to mention rising Islamophobia. What do we make of these attacks, and how do we tackle the problem of domestic terrorism? Are government and law enforcement paying attention, or are we too focused on the threat of Islamic extremism to notice what's happening?
