In the modern era of the Internet, it has become an increasingly simple task to broadcast messages of intolerance, hate, and/or extremism. Terror groups, nationalistic extremist groups, and assorted other extremist organizations have developed into savvy cyberspace users for purposes of disseminating information and recruiting members. Extremist groups (including domestic terrorists, cyberbullies, fundamentalist organizations, and politically motivated organizations, etc.) now have the ability to easily manipulate images and video using cheap, readily available software that they can then upload to a multitude of social media sites and user groups. These images and propaganda are used to inflame tensions and recruit new members to the various groups’ causes. For this paper choose one domestic extremist group as the focus for your paper.
