British legislator assassinated by man yelling right-wing slogan

It isn't only America where right-wing extremism is a threat. Britain is under siege too.

Jo Cox, 41, of the Labour Party was a popular member of Parliament. Cox has died after she was shot repeatedly and then stabbed outside a library - in full view of witnesses.

The killer - a man named Thomas Mair - yelled, "Britain First!" This is the name of a right-wing political party in Britain.

Acts of violence like this plague many countries and have many victims - but a common denominator is that they are all carried out by right-wing extremists. Without exception. And it's just as relevant to America as it is to Britain.

That's why we need to crack down on the Right.
