...Memes Right and Left Wing Terror Groups in America
1
Extremism in the U.S. is on the rise, based on the rise in polarization throughout the country as the Left and the Right become more and more opposed to one another ideologically, politically, socially, and emotionally. There is a strong rift between the two and little sense of common ground. Much of this rise has come on the heels of the rise in social media use, which allows individuals to promote their views to the rest of the world in a way that was literally unheard of prior to the digital revolution (Freberg, Graham, McGaughey & Freberg, 2011). As social media use has essentially risen exponentially since its inception in the 2000s, the level of ideologically-driven Influencers in the space is a reflection and facilitator of the level of extremism in the United States.
As both the popularity of groups like……

Disorderly Conduct By Juveniles

Pages: 1 (369 words) Sources: 2 Document Type:Essay Document #:18502466

...Memes Criminal Law
A disturbing trend of teens coughing on produce at a grocery store has attracted the attention on police in Virginia (Nexstar Media Wire, 2020). Law enforcement officers have increasingly concerned about the viral video tricks, which are posted on social media. Some of the juveniles questioned by the police about these activities have stated that there was no actual criminal intent in their actions (Lewinski, 2020). The disturbing trend has come at a time when coronavirus continues to spread throughout the country. While some of these juveniles have argued against any criminal intent in their actions, they could be charged with disorderly conduct. In the United States, disorderly conduct is normally classified as a misdemeanor or infraction. People are charged with this type of crime when they act or behave in a disruptive way that disturbs the peace of others. In addition, disorderly conduct comprises extremely offensive behavior……

Demographic Profile And Motivation Of Suicide Bombers

Pages: 5 (1591 words) Sources: 6 Document Type:Essay Document #:63328521

...Memes Suicide Terrorism: Driven to Death
Introduction
Who are the terrorists engaging in suicide bombings? What motivates them to act? These are some of the questions Merari (2010) tackles in Driven to Death. They are not entirely new questions, as other researchers have asked them as well—but Merari (2010) does provide new insight into the phenomenon of suicide bombing by conducting field work and independent research to uncover more information on this particular subject. This paper explores some of the findings of Merari (2010) and compares them with what other researchers have had to say, particularly on the subject of what motivates terrorists to act.
Demographics
While many scholars argue that there is no demographic profile of the suicide bomber, Merari (2010) disagrees and presents his own demographic profile based on his own research. The argument of general scholarship is that anyone can be a suicide bomber, young or old, rich……

Domestic Extremism And Terrorism

Pages: 12 (3640 words) Sources: 12 Document Type:Research Paper Document #:16554681

...Memes Proud Boys vs Antifa War of Words
Introduction and Research Question
When it comes to domestic extremism, there are groups on both the Right and the Left of the socio-political spectrum in America. And while they may differ ideologically, they can also have a great deal of similarities. This paper looks at two extremist groups in particular—Antifa on the Left and Proud Boys on the Right. The questions this paper poses are: What is the nature of Antifa and how does Proud Boys mirror the group from the opposite spectrum? How can these extremist groups best be countered? The purpose of this paper is, therefore, to compare and contrast the two groups while showing that they both represent deep sub-cultural trends among the American populace that are emerging into popular culture and have the potential of disrupting and subverting mainstream cultural norms. To accomplish this objective, this paper first reviews……
