This series focus­es on the Nazi tac­tic of infil­trat­ing the police and mil­i­tary, in order to com­pro­mise those insti­tu­tions and acquire the “spe­cial­ized knowl­edge and abil­i­ties” required to over­throw the state. This tac­tic has been adopt­ed by Nazis and fas­cists world-wide and is very much in evi­dence in the Unit­ed States. The series ana­lyzes, among oth­er events, the ran­dom mur­der of two black cit­i­zens in North Car­oli­na by off-duty para­troop­ers from the 82nd Air­borne Divi­sion, who were appar­ent­ly mem­bers of white suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tions. The killings took place on the tenth anniver­sary of the killing of Robert Matthews (a mem­ber of “The Order”, the Nazi orga­ni­za­tion that killed Alan Berg, a Den­ver talk show host.) Oth­er points cov­ered in the series include: an analy­sis of the mili­tia move­ment, which dis­cuss­es evi­dence that some ele­ments of the mili­tias may actu­al­ly be an exten­sion of the very gov­ern­ment they pro­fess to be opposed to; dis­cus­sion of the Okla­homa City Bomb­ing indi­cat­ing that the per­pe­tra­tors may very well have been mem­bers of an inter­na­tion­al fas­cist con­spir­a­cy; an exam­i­na­tion of the pro­to-Nazi “Nation­al Bol­she­vik” move­ment in Weimar Ger­many, which com­pares that move­ment to the fas­cist ele­ments with­in the mili­tia move­ment. (Record­ed in the late win­ter and ear­ly spring of 1996.)
