CNN: Wolf Blitzer and the Situation Room: "Root of Evil: The State of Hate" looks at right-wing hate groups around the world daily
CNN has been airing a series “Root of Evil: The State of Hate” on its 6 PM program “The Situation Room” hosted by Wolf Blitzer, starting Monday Nov. 26.
It starts late in the hour. Monday’s transcript is here.
Monday the broadcast showed that the rise of right-wing white supremacist hate (and the idea of an ethnostate) has gained more traction in some rural areas than most Americans realize. This problem last got public attention (before Trump and then Charlottesville) with the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 by Timothy McVeigh, and the reporting of the “militia”. This includes organized anti-Semitism.
On Tuesday, the broadcast talked about the rise of anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism in Germany, where such speech and assembly is illegal, but is happening a lot more, and out in the open, since the migrant crisis started in 2014. But some citizens say they are not allowed to complain about immigrant crimes.
