A group from the Proud Boys confronts anti-Trump protesters outside Trump's 2020 campaign kickoff rally in Orlando, Fla. The Proud Boys group is known for white nationalist and other extremist rhetoric.

Expert warns that groups like the Proud Boys aren't operating on emotion but on ideology.

Late last year, the Department of Homeland Security's first homeland threat assessment labeled white supremacist extremists as the largest threat facing the U.S. Members of those groups, including several from Missouri, have been charged with crimes connected to the January 6 insurrection in Washington, D.C. With Donald Trump no longer in the White House, white supremacists groups are beginning to splinter apart.
