White supremacists killed nearly 20 people last year, making up more than half of all extremist murders. The FBI has also reported a 10 percent increase in hate crimes since 2014, marking a five year high in 2016. Yet white power activism in America is not a new phenomenon; it’s been here for centuries. Historian Kathleen Belew, in her new book “Bring the War Home,” describes how the current white supremacy movement can trace its roots back to the Vietnam War when fringe factions of white extremists banded together. She joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss how the social movement declared war on the state and how their strategies parallel those of Islamist terrorists.
