Love it

Love this show .. learn more than what i saw in the news

ghetto nugget ,

Highly recommend

Very informative! It does a deep dive into North American and Canadian alt-right extremism and terrorism while showcasing how these organizations are formed and why people get interested in racial hatred.

Sir Psyko Sexy ,

good research

Good narration and exposing this type of idiocy and extremism is important, it’s heavily one sided toward far right extremism and says nothing of the equally idiotic and dangerous extremism of the left. Granted this is about nazism, but presenting both sides equally when dealing with them (interview with Antifa) would have given it much more weight and legitimacy
