August 25, 2013 ANN – hree radical-right propagandists who spread extremist messages through racist cartoons, Internet videos and even tours glorifying Nazi landmarks are exposed in the latest issue of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Report, released today.
Also featured in the Fall 2013 issue of the SPLC’s quarterly investigative journal are the stories of two former racist activists who have rejected white nationalist propaganda and left the movement.
“Propagandists for the radical right are becoming more creative and more devious, too, as they work to get their message out to a wider audience,” said Mark Potok, senior fellow at the SPLC and editor of the Intelligence Report. “Their use of humor and other non-threatening approaches is proving to be a surprisingly effective recruitment tool.”
In this issue:
“The Smiling Nationalist” profiles Paul Ray Ramsey, a 50-year-old father of two from suburban Tulsa, Okla., who has delighted racists as “Ramzpaul,” a smirking video blogger. His flippant videos, which have racked up nearly 5 million views, promote racial separatism with a smile and have become a weekly staple on white supremacist websites.
