LA councilwoman calls for additional security for Jewish institutions after antisemitic shootings
CBS Los Angeles
Feb. 21, 2023

Professor Brian Levin, the director of the study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, was interviewed for a segment on a Los Angeles City Council member calling for additional security at Jewish institution after two Jewish men were shot last week and other antisemitic incidents.

Levin attributed the escalation of hate to a variety of reasons.  

"One is the fragmented social media and political landscape that we're in, where different levels of conspiracism take root," he said. "And right adjacent to these conspiracies are antisemitic tropes, oftentimes at various levels. Sometimes it's not the most blatant type of antisemitism that gets out there, but a gateway type that gets widely dispersed."
