The Extreme Gone Mainstream 

When: Thu., April 18, 4-5:30 p.m. 2019
Nazi Germany based many of its racial policies on America’s Jim Crow segregation of black people. In James Q. Whitman’s Hitler’s American Model, he quotes Mein Kampf, where Hitler praised America as “the one state that has made progress toward primarily racial conception of citizenship, by excluding certain races from naturalization.” In 2019 we have seen the rise of white supremacist terrorism that evokes the period during WW1, when Ku Klux Klan membership swelled to one million people. Again, we’re also seeing white supremacist terror as a global movement, with The United States serving as template for far-right extremism in Germany. Cynthia Miller-Idriss’ The Extreme Gone Mainstream: Commercialization and Far Right Youth Culture in Germany examines how German youth are using common American clothes and brands to signal extremist, anti-Semitic, racist, and nationalistic sentiment. It’s about more than MAGA-hats.
