You’ve seen the pictures: heavily armed angry protesters at state houses demanding an end to stay at home orders. They call such safety measures “medical martial law,” and see it as the start of government tyranny, providing them with a  reason to accelerate the civil war they have long fantasized about.,which they call the “boogaloo.”With us on this show are Cassie Miller and Howard Graves, both senior research analysts for the Southern Poverty Law Center which has been tracking hate groups since 1971 and holding them legally responsible for acts of violence. Clearly Trump is egging them on, moving what used to be on the fringe to mainstream politics. They fear and hate demographic change and blame “The Others” for both the spread of the coronavirus and public safety measures. In the 21st century they’ve given up hiding under sheets and hoods as the internet provides easier anonymity.
