White nationalism has ‘tentacles that extend into the mainstream,’ CSUSB professor saysCBC (Canada)March 19, 2019 Brian Levin, director of the Cal State San Bernardino Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was interviewed for an article about the growing threat of extremist white nationalists in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on two mosques in New Zealand that left at least 50 people dead. The suspect in the attack reportedly professed white nationalist/white supremacist beliefs in a manifesto. Data from the nonpartisan Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University San Bernardino says that hate crimes in America's largest cities rose for the fifth consecutive year in 2018. 'In the U.S., far-right extremism has eclipsed violent Salafi jihadists,' said Levin. 'The difference is white nationalism has emerged into a coalesced and growing socio-political force, with tentacles that extend into the mainstream. That's something many other extremist movements do not have.' Republican Congressman Steve King, for example, has openly mused that being labelled a 'white nationalist' shouldn't be such a bad thing.Levin testified before Congress four years ago about the extremist threat. At the time, he said Salafi jihadists represented the most prominent threat to the U.S., with far-right white nationalists coming second. 'That has flipped,' he said on Monday.
