The National Socialist Movement has scheduled a rally November 9 in Kansas City at the Jackson County Courthouse. The group calls itself a white civil rights organization, whereas watchdog organizations uniformly call it a hate group that is racist, anti-Semitic and dangerous.
Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center says that extremist groups have been growing since the start of the recession in 2008. He claims that in 2008 there were 149 extremist groups, whereas as currently there are over 1000.
Our guest, Leonard Zeskind, is holding a counter-protest the same day at 3 p.m. in front of the Liberty Memorial.
