Right-wing populism in America : too close for comfort by Chip Berlet ( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: Right-wing militias and other antigovernment organizations have received heightened public attention since the Oklahoma City bombing. While such groups are often portrayed as marginal extremists, the values they espouse have influenced mainstream politics and culture far more than most Americans realize. This important volume offers an in-depth look at the historical roots and current landscape of right-wing populism in the United States. Illuminated is the potent combination of anti-elitist rhetoric, conspiracy theories, and ethnic scapegoating that has fueled many political movements from the colonial period to the present day. The book examines the Jacksonians, the Ku Klux Klan, and a host of Cold War nationalist cliques, and relates them to the evolution of contemporary electoral campaigns of Patrick Buchanan, the militancy of the Posse Comitatus and the Christian Identity movement, and an array of millennial sects. Combining vivid description and incisive analysis, Berlet and Lyons show how large numbers of disaffected Americans have embraced right-wing populism in a misguided attempt to challenge power relationships in U.S. society. Highlighted are the dangers these groups pose for the future of our political system and the hope of progressive social change

One bright shining moment the forgotten summer of George McGovern ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?

Fueled by the rhetoric of hate, the lone gunman views murder as a deadly mission. Using archival footage, reenactments, and interviews with FBI and ATF experts as well as those personally involved, this program isolates these elusive criminals, examining the link between fringe groups and lone gunmen. A psychological profile emerges in case studies of Benjamin Smith and his July 4th killing spree in 1999; Eric Rudolph, accused of bombing the 1996 Olympic games; and Shelley Shannon, an anti-abortion extremist in prison for attempted murder. Several leaders of white supremacist groups are also interviewed, including Matthew F. Hale, leader of the World Church of the Creator, and Dr. William Pierce, leader of the National Alliance

Debunking conspiracy theories by Chip Berlet ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theories are unproven assertions. If empirical evidence is presented then the theory moves to fact. In another realm, allegations are not subject to rigorous examination. There is a strain of thought that embraces beliefs ranging from UFOs in Roswell to who killed JFK to black helicopters. These theories take on an almost theological conviction. If one challenges them that is proof that you are a dupe. In all instances it is a sinister "they" who are behind everything. Self-styled experts appear with websites and in nano seconds jump from speculation to fact. Their "findings" are quickly transmitted. A lot of it is, A happened therefore Y is true. The leaps of logic are breathtaking. 9/11 has spawned the latest cottage industry of theories
