For the week of Jan. 10, 2021:

One of the ugliest days in America history.

A riot at the Capitol after President Donald Trump’s Jan. 6 “Save America” rally outside the White House, two weeks before the inauguration of Joe Biden.

Prof. John Horgan (Georgia State University)

The world was shocked. But John Horgan was not surprised.

Prof. John Horgan of Georgia State University, that is.

The Ireland-born, Atlanta-based Horgan shares his name with B.C. Premier John Horgan. (“Let’s just hope I never run for office in B.C., and I’ll cause utter confusion.”)

He is one of the world’s top experts in the psychology of politically motivated violence and extremism and is a special guest on this edition of Podcast.

Trump and his allies did “nothing less than whip up an already radical fringe to the point of mobilization,” Horgan said. 

“This is extraordinary, this is the kind of thing I see time and time again in a terrorism context,” Horgan told host Bob Mackin. “If you remove the names and the labels and these little catchy phrases, we have for this group or that group, we’re talking about the same fundamental dynamics.”

Is the U.S. slowly inching toward a new Civil War?

Hear what Horgan has to say.

Plus headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
