The Sparks That Ignite Hate: The Growth of American Extremism
With
Chip Berlet, investigative reporter, independent scholar and progressive activist specializing in the study of U.S. right-wing movements

Berlet describes that what happened at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin is both a hate crime and an act of domestic terrorism & discusses what's feeding
white supremacist radicalization. He has written scholarly articles on conspiracy
theories,religious apocalyptic aggression, and organizations of racist groups. Berlet examines major terrorist plots and racist rampages that have emerged from the American radical right in the context of mass media's vilification of a scapegoated group, governmental policing and military policies and the politics of race & gender hierarchies, that stimulate individual and group aggression. Berlet reminds us that whether it be the "lone wolf"or the leaderless resistance cells on the radical right, they can be likened to the mined canaries, warning us of something toxic spreading the fumes of anxiety through our society.
