In our latest episode, we talk with author of Against the Fascist Creep Alexander Reid Ross (@areidross) about America's history of political violence and the right wing creep in the United States. From slave patrols to far right groups protesting COVID19 mask requirements and attacking Black Lives Matter protests today, America has a long history of political violence. Much of the deadliest has been carried out by forces of reaction and racism (i.e. right-wingers). We talk about the history of right wing violence, how it compares with movements on the left, current dynamics around militia groups, influences of Trump and the rise of eco-fascists.
Alexander Reid Ross is an adjunct professor of geography at Portland State University, a doctoral fellow with the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right and author of “Against the Fascist Creep.”
