What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 12 in a series – “…a “paranoid style” in American mass politics…”

August 15th, 2019

“Scholars also condemned the Klan as an example of the irrationality of the crowd, a theme developed in the 1960s by historian Richard Hofstadter. 35 He identified a “paranoid style” in American mass politics, which he identified with its reliance on conspiracy theories, as in the Klan’s allegations of secretive Catholic and Jewish plots to take over the United States.”
