Two Frontline productions—one reporting on the deadly 2017 rally in Charlottesville, the other on neo-Nazis—provide a chilling look at white supremacism in America.
The first program tracks down individuals at the center of the violence in Charlottesville and reveals how ill-prepared law enforcement was to handle the situation. The second program begins with clips of the shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue and then focuses on one particular neo-Nazi group, Atomwaffen Division, which has actively recruited inside the military. The investigation documents the group’s terrorist objectives, shows how it gained strength after Charlottesville, and examines how civilian and military authorities have responded.
