CSUSB professor comments on some white nationalist groups’ attempted makeover
March 11, 2019
And article about the white nationalist group Identity Evropa embracing “a preppy, patriotic aesthetic and rely on Greco-Roman imagery to evoke European ancestry to make their brand seem more benign and attract conservative college-aged men” included an interview with said Brian Levin, a criminal justice professor and director of Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. Identity Evropa helped organize the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017.
“When hate groups tried to ‘unite,’ it was an unmitigated disaster,” said Levin. “While some are going underground now and becoming more lean, radical, and violent; others are trying to grow by differentiating themselves with a slightly tweaked, more mainstreamed, bigoted message — with a more stealth PG-13 rating.”
