Brian Levin – Pt 1

In the wake of the reported plot to kidnap Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, attention has turned to what we know about the threat of violent extremism in our current political climate. Before that news broke, we spoke with one of the most trusted voices on hate and extremism in America about the nature of that threat, the role of white supremacy, and why a major election creates a moment of even greater risk.

We’re speaking with Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University San Bernardino.
