One bright shining moment : the forgotten summer of George McGovern( Visual )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 483 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

The options handbook : communicating with prospective students about postsecondary educational options by Mary S Carlson( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study conducted by 19 student researchers under a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, concluded that very little information is designed to aid students to make a choice for their future. Three separate publications resulted, called the "Options Handbooks." Material from these handbooks is synthesized here. The summaries review the information needs of post secondary students in the context of recent consumer protection debates, review the need for financial resources information and give examples of dissemination strategies in five states and at the national level, and discuss the relation between the roles of information and counseling, with the focus on how to assist students in developing their decision-making abilities. Fifty-nine references are included. (Author/DS)
Doublespeak : the rhetoric of the far right since 1945 by Matthew Feldman( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This timely intervention exposes the euphemized language of the extreme right as a deceptive attempt to secure greater influence over public policy. Since the end of World War II, the extreme right has made strategic use of?doublespeak," which apes the language of liberal democracy. Attentive observation and accurate recognition of these tactics means taking the extreme right's deliberately crafted slogans, symbols, and themes seriously. These essays investigate the extreme right's attempts at?repackaging" contemporary ultranationalism to make it more palatable to mainstream European and Ame

TRUMPING DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES : from ronald reagan to alt-right by Chip Berlet( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Donald Trump announced his campaign for the Presidential nomination of the Republican Party on June 16, 2015. The business mogul mobilized a huge, angry constituency that was overwhelmingly white. They were attracted to Trump’s campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again." Great again for whom? Trump’s campaign was marked by his vicious and inflammatory rhetoric infused with white racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant xenophobia. The next day In Charleston, South Carolina an angry young white man walked into a Bible study at a traditionally Black church. After sitting quietly for a few minutes Dylann Roof pulled out a handgun and allegedly shot three black people dead leaving others wounded. Roof told a participant in the Bible study, "I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go." This book will place Donald Trump and Dylann Roof in the context of the backlash against the presidency of Barack Obama and the resulting 2016 campaign for the presidency in which Donald Trump became ascendant. It will explain how there is a dynamic relationship between the Republican Party, various right-wing populist movements, and the extreme right. It will argue that unfair hierarchies of race, gender, and class are not aberrational tremors in America, but the fracturing bedrock of a nation in which being White, male, Christian, or straight no longer ensures a stable floor for power, status, or privilege."--Provided by publisher
Debunking conspiracy theories by Chip Berlet( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 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
