david-neiwert-the-eliminationists.thumbnail.jpgThere are  lot of people on TV saying irresponsible things about the shooting at the Holocaust museum (one mentioned the "Obama effect," as if this was something that Obama’s election precipitated).

If any TV bookers are looking for someone knowledgeable to speak on the subject, they should call David Neiwert.  David blogs at Orcinus, he’s the managing editor of Crooks & Liars, he’s an expert on the subject and the author the new book The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right.

David actually predicted something like this in the book.  You can find more on the book here on David’s book salon, which was hosted by Digby.

If any media folks need contact info for David, drop me a line.
