Getting Real about Right-Wing Extremism

March 9, 2018

Episode Notes:

Last week, Peter W. Singer, Strategist and Senior Fellow at New America, wrote a call to action for the national security community to start taking right-wing extremism more seriously as a national security threat. The intent of his article was to push back on ‘whataboutism’ that has treated right-wing extremism as right-wing politics, instead of a set of extremist ideologies outside of mainstream politics. Peter discusses these issues and the responses he’s received.
