Professor Brain Levin studies extremism at Cal State San Bernardino and says the Internet makes it easier for teenagers to find hateful content.

”You wouldn’t allow a neo-nazi or a klansman into your house, but with a computer, we now do.”

Multiple reports indicate that 19-year-old Santino William Legan posted online about “Might is Right”, a racist book from the 1890s that promotes white supremacy and violence.

He notes that the 19-year-old accused San Diego synagogue shooter also promoted racist beliefs online.
