Extremism In America


Season 01  Episode 4

In 2012, a white supremacist murdered seven people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Like members of The Order and Timothy McVeigh, the shooter had been radicalized, in part, by reading The Turner Diaries. Despite some calls in congress to do more to counter domestic extremism, the temple shooting marked the beginning of a turn toward lethal attacks by far-right extremists.
