CSUSB professor quoted in article about MAGA leaders who call for troops
Yahoo News

Brian Levin, CSUSB criminal justice professor and director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was quoted in an article about MAGA leaders who call for the troops to keep Trump in office.

In the minds of some authoritarian-leaning and conspiracy-minded Trump supporters, the Insurrection Act – which allows the president to deploy troops to suppress domestic uprisings, not to overturn elections – has become a needed step to prevent President-elect Joe Biden from assuming the presidency. Their evidence-deficient reasoning: Democrats illegally rigged the election and are attempting a coup, and Trump must send in the troops to undo this conspiracy.

“When you’re talking about a group of conspiracy theorists, and others who lack any kind of legal knowledge, they’ll just pull that arrow out of their quiver when the rest don’t work,” said Levin.
