🗣️Our new book is out today: “#CasaPound Italia: contemporary #Extreme #Right #Politics” co-written by @CaterinaFroio @SciencesPo_CEE Matteo Albanese, Giorgia Bulli and myself @CrexUiO, for @routledgebooks @FFRAFAction (thread 1/15)

The trial of two #ProudBoys involved in the #NY9 incident began yesterday.

Defense contended #GavinMcInnes was a satirist whose work was taken out of context.

@ADL dir. @orensegal stated violence is a core tenant of Proud Boys charter.

@RVAwonk @lighttuponlight
2/ In 2017, (during an #IRB approved research project), I sought to probe Gavin’s #altright connections & explore the possibility that the #ProudBoys were a #radicalization vector.
