The Roots of American Political Violence
Podcast—it’s here to stay
Antifa and white nationalists clash in the streets. Students armed with bats on a college campus patrol the sidewalks. A man in Portland stabs several people on a bus, and another in Virginia opens fire on Republican legislators on a baseball field.
This week on War College, Joe Young—an expert on violent extremism and contributing editor at Political Violence at a Glance—walks us through what does and doesn’t scare him about the new rash of political violence in America.
For Young, the times may be scary, but they’re a far cry from the radical ’60s and ’70s when groups such as the Weather Underground bombed public buildings.
