The Huffington Post reports:

“As it stands today, we have been much more focused than at any time in the last 10 years on threat posed by homegrown terrorism,” a senior DHS counterterrorism official told The Huffington Post.

Right-wing extremist activity increased in 2008 and 2009 and has stayed persistent in 2010 and 2011, says former DHS domestic terror analyst Daryl Johnson, who founded a consulting firm that tracks extremist activity. He produced the 2009 report that created a political firestorm after it warned of a surge in right-wing extremism due to the election of the country’s first black president and the economic recession.
