This weeks show features a conversation with activist, blogger and anti-fascist, Daryle Lamont Jenkins. Mr. Jenkins is a co-founder of the extreme-right-watch website, OnePeoplesProject.com, based out of Philadelphia. Our conversation covers: the upcoming convergence of American Renaissance in the Nashville, TN area in mid-march; links between white supremacists and the Libertarian movement in the U.S. and in particular the recent (deja vu) linking of Ron Paul supporters and white nationalism by Anonymous; and a discussion on Paleoconservatism and Paleolibertarianism.
