From US to New Zealand: The far right's global reach

In this episode of the Take, a Christchurch shooting survivor shares his story, and a former neo-Nazi explains his past.

    Last week, a gunman opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing at least 50 people.

    Prior to the shooting, he published a manifesto espousing some of the same ideas that have driven white nationalist and other right-wing violence in the United States and beyond.

    In this week's episode of The Take, Imtiaz Tyab speaks with AJ+'s Imaeyen Ibanga about the documentary series she produced for AJ+ about the far-right movement in the US. We hear an interview with a former neo-Nazi, and an eyewitness account from a survivor of the shooting at the Linwood Mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
