This Week, we take a look at some examples of right wing radicalization to the point of violence, not an uncommon topic on this show, but this time we focus in on a specific form of radicalization. In particular today we talk about people who are radicalized by a hatred of the left, in the form it has taken in mainstream right wing media. People radicalized by the everyday figures of Fox News and the Trump circle of chuds. The bad actors we discuss today were radicalized in the same way your father was. Talk radio and cable TV. Far more than many other mass murderers and terrorists, today’s subjects were products of a pure form of conservative radicalization.
Today we discussed four individuals in particular. Jim Adkisson, a man who attacke the Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church in 2008, motivated by his belief that they were “liberal foot-soldiers” trying to bring communism to America. Cesar Sayoc, the “MAGA-Bomber” who mailed pipe bombs to the Fox News list of villains. Ricky Shiffer, who believed he could carry out a war against the FBI with the help of a nail gun, and David DePape, the man who attacked Paul Pelosi in San Francisco driven by a deranged hatred of “the left” which in the eyes of the fox news brain afflicted person is epitomized by a woman the actual left hates more than they do.
Thanks as always for listening and enjoy the show!
