Along with the president, conservatives de-platformed in a coordinated operation. It will probably go down as the Friday Night massacre. Only it didn’t end Friday night and it won’t end for quite a while. On Friday night, Twitter permanently banned President Trump’s account. The move was soon followed by Facebook and Instagram. Over the weekend, […]

Understanding the violence so we can fix its source. Violence itself is a form of extremism. What we saw at the Capitol Wednesday – a building that has not been breached since 1814 – was certainly extremism, but it is important to understand it and distinguish it from other forms of extremism. There are two […]
Our extremism forecast. Look our for these three things. Americans are still in shell shock from 2020, a year that projected the public onto the frontlines of extremism. Few people exited 2020 without a crash course on the complex reality of what extremist behavior and extremist ideologies look like. And while most are heaving a […]
The hypocrisy of the EU’s new terror content law & free speech stateside. A recent agreement drafted for the European Union (EU) mandates that social media companies must take down terrorist content within an hour of it being flagged or risk paying enormous fines. On the face of it, we may automatically agree that this is a […]
French organization deemed an ‘enemy of the French Republic.’ On December 4, 2020, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced on its website that it had offered office space in its Capitol Hill headquarters to the French NGO Collective Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), stating that French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin had “falsely accused” the organization of “spreading Islamist propaganda.” What are […]
The line up of the American Muslims for Palestine conference reads like a Who’s Who for the Muslim Brotherhood Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rahida Tlaib and Betty McCollum participated in a conference over the weekend with several figures connected to Islamist terrorism. As the above poster notes, many of the speakers at the American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) […]
Recruiters from all extremist groups play on men’s insecurities. They know that few things are more attractive to an insecure young man than power, and they offer it along with a weapon and a supremacist doctrine. In our latest short, What Makes a Real Man, from our Former Extremists Talk series, we ask why so many young men […]
Resources for parents or homeschooling groups. Two days before the election, then-Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris took to Twitter to share a video she narrated that critics say amounted to support for communism. There’s a big difference between equality and equity. pic.twitter.com/n3XfQyjLNe — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) November 1, 2020 Harris’s video aimed to identify […]
Muslim voters more than doubled their support for Trump from 2016. We explore why. Islamists have been successful in the U.S. of laying claim to the “Muslim voice,” garnering attention in the media and government in an effort to push through their agenda. It is with this backdrop that we look at an interesting finding […]
Global outrage over Macron shows exactly what Islamism looks like If there is one silver lining that comes out of the horror show that has been 2020, it should be that moving forward there is no further question or confusion about whether political Islam, i.e. Islamism, exists or what it looks like. As yet another Islamist attack unfolds […]
On the eve of U.S. elections, where candidates have significant differences on U.S. immigration policy, Twitter censorship shut down the account of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan. Morgan had attempted to tweet out the following information, which was flagged by the tech giant for violating its rules on hateful and violent content: Having […]
The horrendous and barbaric slaughter of French teacher Samuel Paty in a Paris suburb by a zealous Chechen-born jihadist is once again shocking but not surprising. This act of gruesome murder was carried out during the on-going trial of the terrorists behind the Islamist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which published cartoons depicting Islam’s prophet Mohammed. […]
Why is Marxist ideology enjoying the red-carpet treatment by big media? While the public fights over scraps of ideas through social media wars or street protests, Marxist ideologies are being steamrolled into popular culture by big media. The question is, why? Less than 10 years ago, those promoting this ideology were shunned not only in the political […]
Violence cannot be the answer. Anti-fascist must also mean anti-violence. History has proven that anti-fascists like Stalin and Chairman Mao have led to obsessive violence and caused huge losses of life against their own people. Is this what Marxists inspired Antifa aspires to be? Antifa purports to be a civil rights movement, but unlike Martin […]
Why are the Left and Right fighting over this term? A lot of terms are thrown around today to describe extremist movements. One that keeps coming up is “cultural Marxism.” In an attempt to add clarity, political and historical accuracy, Clarion Project investigates the origin and current usage of the term and offers our suggestions […]
