21 The Alt-Right

On this episode, we focused on the new white supremacist movement calling itself the ‘Alt-Right’. We called Daniel Sieradski, founder of Jewschool.com & creator of the Nazi Detector App, to talk about (((echoes))), internet Nazis, and the failures of Jewish media. We then spoke with Matthew Lyons, author of a soon-to-be-released book about the US far right, about the origins of this new movement and who it’s targets are. We ended the show with our usual Shkoyach segment, Sam giving his to a meme and David awarding theirs to an unusual choice of attire.
