This video from Democracy Now, an excerpt from Rick Rowley and Jacquie Soohen’s White Power USA, is just terrifying. It chronicles the rise of white nationalism in the United States over the last year. I’d embed it, but the embedding code doesn’t appear to be working on this blog.
The except from the documentary is quite long, but well worth the watch. I think the documentarian makes some valid points at the end of the excerpt, one of which is the necessity to stop calling racists and White nationalists “extremists” and “radicals” and quit mocking them in mainstream media, because it actually harms progressive movements: those who might have sympathies with right-wing movements but might be on the fence won’t listen to progressive activists or advocates because those are the type of people who mock their neighbors and concerns.
Overall, a fantastic and chilling report.
