Former Neo-Nazi Accuses Fox News of Radicalizing Americans: 'They Say The Same Stuff I Used to Say'



By Sarah Rumpf Mar 6th, 2021, 11:19 pm

Frank Meeink, a former neo-Nazi recruiter, told CNN’s Pamela Brown he thought that Fox News had “completely radicalized” many Americans, accusing them of using rhetoric similar to “the same radical stuff” he used to say.

“Fox News has completely radicalized so many Americans,” he said. “If you look at Fox News and then you compare that to hate radio from Rwanda, and what started that civil war, there’s comparisons there. We have to know that a lot of our fellow Americans, our fellow children of God, have been radicalized by a network of news.”

“As a former radical, I can tell you, from watching Fox News all day, I can show you where they’re saying radical stuff that I used to say,” he continued, saying that he used to have a neo-Nazi television show and “they use the same stuff, instead of when I would say ‘Jews,’ they say ‘Big Media.’ They just swapped out a couple of words here and there.”

Brown asked him if he thought that the QAnon conspiracy movement was a domestic terrorist threat.

“Absolutely,” Meeink replied. “The neo-Nazi stuff that I belonged to is manifested in the QAnon, in the Proud Boys…when I see what I used to be, I see it in QAnon, I see it in the Proud Boys. Racism always just recycles itself. We can’t be the KKK anymore, so they can’t be neo-Nazi anymore. Now they are Proud Boys. It’s remarketing hate.”

1. I like Meeink's comment at the end, "it's remarketing hate".

The hate is always there, you just need a way to tap into it and let it flow.
And it's now a gusher! The biggest threat to America is the domestic terrorism.
