Mobilizing Resentment was the show I heard.  Chip Berlet was the speaker. He studies right-wing movements as Senior Research Analyst at Political Research Associates

let's get real

hey there- on the note of what you wrote- I'm in the process of starting a MOVEMENT called "Let's Get Real." It involves a simple action of creating posters with concise, precise, bold statements that are true, not obscene, and can be backed with facts. An example is- TELEVISION DOES NOT ERASE YOUR PROBLEMS, or TELEVISION DOES NOT DEFINE YOU, or THE US GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CARE WHAT YOU THINK.
go ahead- try it. all you need is a computer with "word" and a printer. I prefer the "impact" font- bold...
