Description

When Hate Groups March Down Main Street is a comprehensive, authoritative resource guide for communities, organizations, and individuals who are concerned and intimidated by the resurgence of neo-Nazi and extreme right wing groups in the United States. Their incursions into communities often leads to violence, deaths, injuries, property destruction, as shown in Charlottesville, Berkeley, Parkland High School, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, and elsewhere. Communities have often been caught flat-footed when confronting neo-Nazi and far right wing extremist incursions. This book examines how neo-Nazis and far right wing extremists act, what motivates them, discusses how to counter-act them, and how to equip communities to successfully respond to these incursions by taking a community-as-a-whole approach. This book synthesizes the state of the field, which is developing and not set, and provides innovative ideas, as well as initiatives that have worked in the recent past. The author’s objectives include providing resources to communities that are threatened with extremist activities and other stakeholders such as academia, law enforcement, and faith groups. They provide guides to extremist groups and the code language and tactics they use. Case studies provide examples of how their disruption and violence are managed.
