It wasn't foreign extremists who attacked the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th. Those were red-blooded, homegrown American extremists.

Kevin Grisham researches the activities of people who fit that category; Grisham is the Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University-San Bernardino.

And the Democracy Project at Southern Oregon University brought him in to shine some light on the work and the people studied. This session, exclusive to the JX, explores the sources and passions of domestic extremists.
