With the election of the Barack Obama, a failing economy and anti-immigrant sentiment on the rise, some activists are calling it the perfect storm for recruitment by racist organisations.

Supremacist groups are reportedly targeting soldiers returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as trying to become part of 'mainstream' conservatism by organising around the successful 'Tea Party' movement.

Leonard Zeskind, the author of Blood Politics, who has studied the history of supremacist groups for more than 30 years joins the show.

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired from Wednesday, January 6.
