Dale Beran talks with host Paul Roland about his article, "4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump," and just who is this Milo Yiannopoulos?

 

Dale Beran is a writer and artist; maker of Hi Kwality precision comics daleberan.com.

His article, 4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump, tells the strange story of how an early internet bulletin board morphed into the outlet and vehicle for the frustrations of socially and economically desaffected young men, leading to its cooptation by misogynists and white supremacists like Milo Yiannopoulios. It's essential reading for those struggling to understand and resist Trumpism. https://medium.com/@DaleBeran/4chan-the-skeleton-key-to-the-rise-of-trump-624e7cb798cb#.7arfqp65g
