WELCOME TO NEED TO KNOW
On this special podcast we are joined by author and investigative journalist David Neiwert.
David has spent the majority of his career researching and documenting the far right in America. He is currently a correspondent for the Southern Poverty Law Centre and author of the book "Alt America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the age of Trump".
On this episode we discuss the growing “Incel Movement” and its connection to the Alt-Right. We discuss the movements threats and use of violence towards women. We also look at where they are online.
This episode came about in response to the Tallahassee Yoga studio shooting in which six women were shot and two were killed. The perpetrator has been found to be “sympathetic” to the Incel cause. The investigation is still on going so we cannot confirm that the killer identified as an “Incel” (Though it is suspected to be highly likely).
We also discuss the MAGA Bomber and the Pittsburg Synagog shooting, which were both inspired by Alt-Right and Far-Right politics.
