2018 YouTube report

In 2018, Rebecca Lewis released a report on a network of YouTube accounts that uplifted people and channels associated with the alt-right or “reactionary right” movement. The report was focused on white nationalism and far-right extremism, but the same “mainstream” conservative accounts have frequently been involved in laundering anti-transgender extremism into mainstream media.

YouTube personalities mentioned include:
