ISD’s Head of Research & Policy, Far-right and Hate Movements, Jacob Davey, features in Bloomberg speaking on the far-rights online reaction to the FBI’s search at Mar-A-Lago.

Similar to the chatter leading up to the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol, these calls for mobilization aren’t being veiled. Platforms will soon have to decide up to when to permit it.
