Right-wing Extremism 101, with guest David Neiwert

David Neiwert is one of America’s foremost experts on right-wing extremism, domestic terror, and the Alt Right. He is a freelance journalist and blogger over at Daily Kos, a contributor at the Southern Poverty Law Center, and author of the book, “Alt-America : the Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump.” Dave talks to us today about the role of the Internet, the media, and Donald Trump in radicalizing America’s youth, and what, if anything, we can do about it. (Sub-topics include Gamergate, Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones, YouTube, Reddit, Fox News, and Twitter’s role in the radicalization and empowerment of the Alt Right.)
