APar 06/19 0058 BRF--Hutchinson FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) -- Terrorism in America has shifted from left wing activity in the 1960s to the extreme right wing movement, former U.S. Attorney Asa Hutchinson of Fort Smith said Thursday. Hutchison said in a speech to the Sebastian County Republican Women that members of some right-wing extremist groups have been indicted in federal court in Fort Smith for sedition as domestic terrorists. Those indicted are members of the Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord, The Order, Ku Klux Klan, Aryan Nations and Posse Comitatus. Terrorism is defined as any act of violence on a person or property done by people with political motives, Hutchinson said. Most of the people under indictment, and many of their followers, accuse the government of persecuting them for their religious and political beliefs. Hutchinson said the members of such groups are not being prosecuted for political reasons, but because of their violence. Last page !
