ABOUT RIGHT-WING "STOCHASTIC" TERRORISM

Joe Clement talks with local fascism scholar and journalist, Shane Burley. They consider how right-wing mass shootings today are a form of "stochastic terrorism", a term that's trending as more people are naming the covert way "lone wolf shooters" are deliberately incited and stoked by right-wing demagogues. They then connect this to how Ted Cruz, Trump and other right-wing figures are calling a terrorist organization, and the August 17th Proud Boy rally calling for "end domestic violence" that seeks to amplify this lie.

Shane Burley is the author of Fascism Today: what it is and how to end it. He recently wrote for Truthout about how "The Right Wing Is Trying To Make It A Crime To Oppose Fascism".
