Story suggestion from a GFM user - the dangers of a radicalized America

Posted by Kit Mitchell-Innes on February 23, 2010 at 10:38 AM

A friend of GFM, James, has suggested a story idea that would lead a correspondent take closer look at a peculiar stratum of American society.

 

The Militias which are cropping up in certain parts of the United States are often dismissed as kooks and kranks but their existence is the result of their disenfranchisement from the direction they believe their country is taking. They are extreme nationalists and their internet presence is rising in popularity as it seems that their sentiment is one that increasing numbers of Americans are coming to sympathise with. Alternative media resources are an integral part of the momentum of these groups - is it misinformation that this is enabling? How extreme are thesegroups?


Will these militias grow any further? What do they believe the solution isto the current woes of the USA? Who are they and in what number? What do they want and how do they plan to getit?


Here at Global for me we have a network of correspondents ready to investigate further.
