Neo-Nazis Online Forums

December 14 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for a fascinating lecture from Dr. Yotam Ophir of UB as he will discuss how online social media serve terrorists and extremists. Yotam will introduce a series of research studies he conducted, analyzing millions of posts over 20 years of online activity to explore the ways millions of far-right White Nationalists and neo-Nazis use the website “Stormfront” to build on existing social tensions around science and medicine to legitimize and promote a racist, anti-semitic, misogynistic conspiratorial ideology.

Ophir will demonstrate how extremist fringe ideas make their way into mainstream politics, fueling real-world catastrophes, from non-compliance during COVID-19 to the horrific massacre at a Buffalo grocery store in May 2022.
