Homeland Security / University of Dayton study

The United States Department of Homeland Security’s Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention (TVTP) Grant Program commissioned a report from University of Dayton on how extremists use media to recruit new members.

While the report was focused on white nationalism and christofascism, many key anti-trans media outlets were included:

Tier 1:

  • Fox News
  • The Heritage Foundation
  • American Conservative Union Foundation
  • Natonal Rifle Association
  • Christian Broadcasting Network
  • John Birch Society
  • American Tea Party
  • Republican Party

Tier 2

Tier 3

  • American Renaissance
  • National Policy Institute
  • Stormfront
  • Daily Stormer
  • Sonnenrad
  • Kekistan flag / chan culture
  • Blood & Honour
  • American Nazi Party
  • American Identity Movement
  • Identitarian Lambda
  • Patriot Front

Tier 4

  • Aryan Nations
  • Atomwaffen Division
  • Sturmabteilung
  • National Socialist Legion
