FBI’s Mar-a-Lago raid sparks a decentralized backlash from the far-right

ISD’s Jared Holt spoke to reporters at The Hill about the far-right’s reaction to the FBI search at Mar-a-Lago. Though Holt described blowback to the raid as “a big firehose of incendiary content,” he also noted that researchers hadn’t observed major plans for mobilization in response to the news event.

“We’re starting to track some calls for protests, we’ve seen a couple kind of floated around, but nothing’s really centralizing at this point,” he said. “There have been at least a couple instances where this has inspired extremists to call for protests or call for mobilization. We’re going to keep an eye on that and see how that evolves.”
