"Ah, high ranking House Republican calls for Liz Cheney's ouster and endorses a replacement on Capitol Hill. I'm Mitchell Miller. Cheney is now responding in a brand new Washington Post op ed former president Trump still banned from Facebook, But there may be more to that story. The big surprise that grew out of the January 6th. Right. That will probably see again. I'm J. J. Green Wall Street. Dow Jones up 97 points, NASDAQ Down 51 S and P Up three There was a no hitter for the OSE Tonight caps and Rangers on the ice, and it could get intense after what happened earlier in the week and the Wizards play Milwaukee and half an hour. It's 7 31, number two House Republican is now calling for replacing the number three person Congresswoman Liz Cheney. W T O P. Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise now says it's Time for Cheney to go, and he's endorsing New York congresswoman Elise Stefanik as her replacement. While Cheney has been critical of former president Trump for claiming the election was stolen from him. Stefanik has echoed his claims of unprecedented voting irregularities, as she did on January. 6th. Tens of millions of Americans are concerned that the 2020 election featured unconstitutional overreach by unelected state officials. GOP CONFERENCE Vote on whether to force Cheney out is expected to come next week Former President Trump me While criticized her again today in a statement from his pack, doubling down on his claims related to the election and calling Senator Mitch McConnell gutless and clueless on Capitol Hill, Mitchell Miller. W T o P Noon. Well knew on that front tonight. Cheney's responding to the effort to remove her as House Republican Conference share and a new Washington Post op ed He urges fellow Republicans to quote steer away from the dangerous and anti Democratic trump cult of personality, and she again calls out the former president from provoking violence on January 6th. Chaney writes quote Trump is seeking to unravel critical elements of our constitutional structure that make democracy work confidence in the result of elections and the rule of law. No other American president has ever done this. Meantime, former President Trump's Facebook account will remain suspended for now, after a ruling from the company's quasi independent oversight board. But the board also criticized Facebook for how it's handled this whole issue. Facebook's oversight board found that Mr Trump's words to rioters calling the very special and great Patriots quote legitimize their violent actions. But it also found that Facebook acted inconsistently with its normal standards for suspending accounts because there was no time limit co chair Michael McConnell was asked if Facebook was too partisan. The reason for demanding, you know, consistency and transparency is so that this can be revealed. The board has given Facebook recommendations to clarify its policy and six months to complete a review. Peter King's CBS News in a statement, the former president calls the decision a total disgrace and a national Mbare. Vestment, adding that social media companies have to pay a political price all those words from Donald Trump. The sentiments were acute echoed by a number of GOP lawmakers on Fox. Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows says there's talk of breaking up Facebook so it doesn't have a monopoly 7 34 the capital, Reid was a big surprise to most Americans. But on this week's edition of the hunt with W. GOP national security correspondent J. J. Green, Cynthia Miller Idris, director of the polarization and Extremism Research and Innovation Lab at American University, says participation by women was another unexpected developments, and we should get used to it. We had far more women engaged than we have ever seen before, and there's a lot more to disentangle. Their one thing we do know is that women are being drawn into violent extremist movements online in greater numbers, then on when they had to participate only an offline context. In part because they don't face the misogyny of men in the movement as much when they're engaging in online context of recruiting other women and engaging on YouTube videos on so we also know that more women were engaged through Q and on channels. And so the question about women's engagement and whether we'll continue to see such high numbers of women engaging even in violent outcomes is one to watch. I think you touched on it before, but drill down a little deeper on why women are getting involved. Women are getting more involved. They're a couple different reasons, but one is That we have seen more women be engaged in online platforms as leaders as as influencers online. Then then we had them. We normally would see when they had to engage only and physical, you know, offline engagements and backwoods of Alicia's or in include Klux Klan groups. Now women were always you know, some as has somebody else has always said, You know that someone is sowing the Ku Klux Klan uniforms and making the meals I mean, they were always helpers and Part of white supremacy. It's not that they were absent, for example, on that French but but playing active roles in violent action and insurrection would be is much less likely to see Cynthia Miller Idris, director of the polarization and extremism.

"Foreigners coming to america to kill americans we immediately condemned and we see it as offensive wrong illegal and we've waged twenty year war on terrorism against this kind of threat.

"This'll is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Michel Martin. We are continuing. Now, with another conversation about the challenges President elect Biden and his administration will face We're going to talk now about something that's frankly have been difficult to talk about until recently, and that is the threat of white nationalist extremism. We obviously saw this on display at the invasion of the capital on January 6th, which was by and large conducted by white extremists. But even before then, despite President Trump's downplaying of it, government analysts raised alarms, including in October report from the Department of Homeland Security that identified white supremacist extremists as the greatest domestic terror threat facing the United States. We wanted to talk more about who these people are. Why we're seeing this movement rise or perhaps rise again and what the Biden administration might do to address this? So we've called Cynthia Miller interest to help us understand some of these questions. He's an expert in white nationalism and heads American universities. Polarization and extremism. Research and innovation Lab. Cynthia Mila, Just welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. You know, I just have to say that you know, white identity extremist terrorist acts by people motivated by white supremacists. Ideologies is not new in this country. I mean, what is the Ku Klux Klan other than a white terrorist group? But it does seem that this movement has risen to a level of national concern. So I wanted to ask Is this ideology? This group? Is this resurgent? Is it growing or is it just now being named and described It's really sort of a spectrum on the far right. A whole spectrum of groups that actually have been quite fragmented for some time. They make up a broad white supremacist extremists spectrum as well as anti government extremists and militias. For example, white the white power movement. So what we saw is in 2017 in Charlottesville. You know, people sometimes forget that that rally was called the Unite the right rally, so actually in 2017. There was an orchestrated attempt by the right to bring them together and become less fragmented. And they failed. And then they remained as fragmented a year ago. A year later, they tried to have AH, unite the right to rally and it just petered out. And on January 6th, What we really did see was a uniting. Of this anti government friends, along with the Cuban on supporters, and then the white supremacist in neo Nazi groups and individuals combined with kind of a mobilized spontaneous Um, group of pro Trump supporters who were obviously now ready and willing to be violent. So they were brought together. They finally did unite on Dan insurrection at the capital and in an effort to reverse what they see as because of mass disinformation, see as a fraudulent election and then an attack on democracy itself. As we saw this was an overwhelmingly white movement, but there were a lot of people there. I mean, we could see this who are not. In fact we've seen you're looking. I'm looking at the footage out. I'm seeing I'm seeing people of color there. I'm seeing people who are members of Minority groups who have been targets of some of these folks in the past. I'm seeing Jewish people there wearing the keeper. Ah, head covering warned by observant Jewish men. How do you understand that? I think that when you understand one of the primary motivators as this idea of procure it, E that it opens up a whole different range of possibilities. So the white since white grievance or procure itty coming from white people is a big one, right this idea that they're entitled to something, even if they don't articulate that, But you also see it was male supremacist groups. You see it with the proud boys who Our so called Western Show Venice. So it's western kind of supremacy and then Christian supremacy so you can have you know, in these hierarchies of superiority and inferiority. There are lots of different versions of it. And then you also just have people who are mobilized out of the pro Trump and Maada protester crowd who really feel like what's being taken away from them is an election. There are a lot of different motivations there, but I think they're all connected by this sense of something being taken away and then feeling like they're engaging heroically to Swart. It So. So how does the Biden administration even begin to address this? As you pointed out, This is such a deep stem. It's coming from a lot of different directions. What is to be done here? It has to be an incredibly sweeping response on multiple levels. And what I mean by that is, you know when 9 11 happened, the result is, you know, we got an entire new agency, the Department of Homeland Security We have seen. I'm not saying we need a new agency. But we need that level of response that recognizes that That's the level of threat, if not greater, that we're facing now and that it cannot be done on Lee through a counterterrorism or law enforcement or surveillance approach. First of all, because we already know there are problems in the law enforcement and community to begin within the military that we have to be investigated as well in terms of potential participation. But we also know that that's always a band aid solution that by the time you get to the need to infiltrate groups or deep platform, people who are spreading mass amounts of disinformation. You're already just s so far down the pipeline that you're now talking about de radicalization instead of actual prevention, So this has to be something that involves, you know, health and human services. It has to involve the Department of Education. It has to involve social work and scholars who really understand what prevention and intervention looks like. You know, helping people with media literacy with recognizing persuasive online propaganda. How does manipulation work online? What escaped voting as a technique and why are they susceptible to it? It's the kind of thing that we invest in as a country or through foundations and foreign Ministry's overseas. In fragile democracies to help the public understand what manipulation looks like and how they could be persuaded by it, But we haven't done it in our own country, and I think that's gonna have to change I such an important point. I think Americans are used to recognizing this overseas. They are used to recognizing this in the United States. And I just wonder if there's anything that gives you confidence that this can be addressed. I'm thinking about that, you know, very powerful video that Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former California governor, posted last week, where he talked about growing up in a household Of people who had supported the Nazi regime and what in effect it had on their life. I mean that the Brokenness That these men carried with them and the shame that they carried with them and how they carried through their lives. And I just wonder You know, Uh, do you feel that? Do you feel confident of the Americans are willing to see this within themselves and to address it? I don't feel confident about that yet, but I feel confident that we could get there. And the reason why I have confidence is because we have example, after example in places like Burundi and Rwanda And Yemen and other places around the world where peace building organizations have been working to heal communities after divides, and they're good lessons to be learned about how it works in the theater and soccer programming and reality, television and radio programming that brings together who turns into its to see journalist to report together in Burgundy, For example, I mean, they're they're just wonderful examples about What? What works and what kind of evidence we have about that success. I think we are in a place where we have to be thinking about democracy as a more fragile thing that has to be consciously committed to and rebuilt and can't just be taken for granted that Cynthia Miller Idris, director of American universities, polarization and Extremism, Research and Innovation Lab, She's the author of the book.

I think we are in a place where we have to be thinking about democracy as a more fragile thing that has to be consciously committed to and rebuilt and can't just be taken for granted.

"Yesterday, the FBI announced it had exposed a plot to kidnap Michigan's Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, 13. Men with ties to armed anti government groups are facing charges related to that alleged plot. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told NPR that this story is quote an American problem. These air groups in multiple states, multiple jurisdictions that have been operating and really taking advantage of the unrest. In American society right now, I think they're taking advantage of the covert epidemic. The black lives matter unrest and they're using it to recruit and to formulate a plot here to help us understand. The prevalence of antigovernment militia groups is Cynthia Miller Idris, professor at American University. She runs the polarization and extremism, research and innovation Lab. Welcome to the program. Thank you. Thank you for having me Now, just a few years ago, we were talking a lot about thie. All right now we're talking about right wing extremism right much further along. Are we actually seeing mohr of these groups? Or is it a different kind of group that we're seeing? We're seeing more and different kind, So it's important to understand these as part of a spectrum that is very fragmented. But we're seeing more recruitment, especially under the pandemic conditions and a broader range of groups, including new ones. Can we talk about this angle of the pandemic? I've been hearing it a lot. Lots of us are stuck at home. Lots of us are not joining militia groups. So why do people who do the work? You do think there's a connection? Well, they're forming new social media groups and putting ideas out there that people latch on to But then off the conditions that create what we call vulnerabilities are there as well. Which means, you know, increasing anxiety, lack of control over one's life, isolation and lack of belonging to other people. Makes people a little bit vulnerable to calls to act heroically or engaged with meaning and purpose in some way. Obviously, the vast majority of people do not join militias who experienced those conditions, But we are seeing increasing participation and conspiracy theories increasing Mobilization around militias and across the whole spectrum. There's another thing people are bringing up. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said that These groups are taking advantage of all the upheaval going on right now. She mentions the pandemic, but also the racial justice protests. Does this ring true to you? Absolutely. I think of it as three waves of the militia mobilization. It started with Richmond. The protests in January around the Second Amendment protests where you had, I think 22,000 people come out. And then the shelter in place orders and the protests of state capitals and then co opting. I should say the peaceful protests around the black lives matter and racial injustice. So we're adding, In what way? What are they saying? So we had militia and vigilante groups showing up who are saying they're protecting the police or law enforcement? And then you have group showing up who want to spark a race for want to create. Further chaos or harm protesters, So their groups are not always aligned with their own objectives. And so you can't think of it as one unified group, but as clusters of small groups that sometimes are at odds with each other. The final factor that we've been hearing a lot about is the president himself, using racist language on Twitter and in person. He's also repeatedly been rebuked for not saying enough to condemn white supremacist actions. Does his rhetoric figure into the growth of these groups? Is there actually evidence of that? So far? There's evidence, generally speaking in the research that the incendiary words of elected officials leads to greater violence against vulnerable populations, And what we have seen in the U. S. Is that There is a perception on the part of far right extremist groups that they have been legitimised. So you know, even if it's not intentional, that's the way it's received. The Michigan attorney general told us that this is quote an American problem. I know you study this globally. But what is distinctly American about this moment? If there's anything American about this moment is that it's so easy for people to get the kinds of weapons they need. Thio an act of kind of violence that they're planning. I mean, that is uniquely American, compared Tio what we face in terms of threats in other parts of the world. After this very striking Siri's of arrest in Michigan, What are you going to be looking for studying watching over the next few days? In the short term? I think everyone I know So in this field is concerned about the potential for violence around the election. And in light of the fact that we've had record breaking firearm sales over the summer and ammunition sales. I think we're in a very toxic moment with a kind of tinderbox effect for potential spontaneous violence. That's Cynthia Miller Idris, a sociologist at American University. Her new book out this month, is called Hate in the homeland. The New global Far right Thank you for your time. Thanks so much for having me. This year's Nobel Peace Prize has been given to the United Nations World Food Program for its efforts to fight hunger and prevent the use of starvation as a weapon of war. WFP is one of the largest aid organizations in the world. NPR's Jason Beaubien reports. It has a reputation for being on the front lines of global crises. The World Food Program is known for dropping bags of grain out of planes in the mist of famines in airlifting tons of rice into villages destroyed by typhoons. But the work of the organization goes far beyond food. The U. N calls on the wf piece fleet of helicopters and cargo planes and boats to move people and supplies into disaster zones. In Bangladesh. The organization literally moved mountains, flattening hillsides to make space for shelters for Ranga refugees and day in and day out. They support long term nutrition programs, including subsidizing local farmers and markets. Today. Barrett Rice Anderson, the chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, praised the WFP as an instrument of peace for its work to break the cycle of hunger and armed conflict. Providing assistance to increase food security not only prevents hunger It can also help to improve prospects for stability and peace. The World Food Program was founded by the U. N in 1961 at the request of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The U. S is the largest donor to the agency. Last year. WFP trucks, boats and planes delivered food to nearly 100 million people around the globe. We cannot forget about those that are suffering because of war in conflict in climate change. David Beasley, the former Republican governor of South Carolina, is now the head of the World Food Programme. He was excited and shocked to get the news this morning that his agency just won the Nobel Peace Prize. But he added that it's an outrage that in 2020 people are still going to bed hungry and the fact that today in the world that the hunger rate is increasing, and the number of people on the brink of starvation increasing isn't indictment unanimity. We have to do better in the humanitarian world. The WFP, he is highly respected for its speed efficiency and logistical muscle. I've been in Muslim big and I seen the Mason worked at the man and woman, a wonderful program has only in Muslim beak. The activist celebrity chef Jose Andres, through his world Central Kitchen has end up providing food in some of the same humanitarian crises as the WFP. He says the agency deserves this Nobel Peace Prize. They saw the amazing work. They were doing dropping foods in very remote villages on doing a very good job, bringing that food in organized systematic way. Jose Andres says he hopes this year's Nobel peace Prize forces, politicians and governments to take the issue of eliminating hunger more seriously. Jason Beaubien NPR news.

"Time for a break. You're listening to the feed chain on the BBC world savvy with me, Emily Thomas. We've been talking about the product placement of food in Hollywood and its impact on filmmaking and on the way American audiences. But what about it global impact? When I spoke to cultural anthropologist, Cynthia Miller earlier, she told me that product placement has played a major role in how American food and food brands the seen around the world. Let's get another perspective on that. My name is always a bit of a tricky last name. I'm sure. Critic and music critic pop culture critic word is Nigeria's film industry. And it's one of the biggest in the world in terms of the number of films produced most productions they are very low budget and never appear in the country's thirty or so cinemas. I all star race what kind of role food plays in all those films. It's mostly here as a class marker, so increasingly the upper class once more western foods, and we as that's the lower classes are more comfortable with local foods. So they are famous in which you'll see apocalypse characters in stuff like pasta, for instance, and we'd like the proper corollary and everything and then the lower income, plus mostly in Lithuania hands like we do some of our local foods here and how much product placement of food. Do you see Nigerian films not very much but not invisible either? So it's more around the mid range for food and drinks. The wine in order to be as well on menu. Is that the way we do it is a little bit tricky. You know, we have this thing where they come into it. Alex Zane for like a few seconds. Now, this is this isn't quite right. So yeah, I think in ninety six I think if you've called Gumbo goes, you have a more direct to the product this minute. We did want to play you a bit of gamma girls. But when we contacted it's producer. He told us he destroyed the master tapes after finding Jesus I think the name of the Wayne was celebrating everybody talking about how beautiful. Not just like, you know. Beautiful and everything. So the idea was if you saw it you probably would want to buy it how aware on I Jerry Nordine says of product placement and how tolerant they of it. They really get angry about it have been cinema halls where people have just essentially site. In the middle of the film when? No. Is is is a bit. What? Now, so. We'll talk if something really annoying actually happens like Blitzer for the basements. When it's a Hollywood film. Does that annoy the Nigerian audience in the same way, I have to admit that? No, actually, that's doesn't way we have various racial society. If you have a country where the right amount of people who are in quite well to do it means that the people who are wilted looked up to and this. Of course, also means that foreign stuff gets a lot of attention. If the product placement of the American brand is really really unsubtle in your face at that point to Nigeria and audiences tend to mind, if it's a really big brand, I think Lewis is to it. In fact, I think I know. A more likely to congratulate the food is than anything else. Actually how much of an influence. Do you think product placement in Hollywood films has had on Nigerians attitudes towards American fast food? It's really interesting. I've guest gives me a pulse. I think you've just because Hollywood is a big part of our lives. And so anything that features in the major movie is an endorsement, it's pretty much saying, you know, what go for this. But we do not have the epidemic of high consumption of fast food because for one is really expensive. Or is told me that he thinks that as Nali would grows, and it standards improve fade companies will start investing more in product placement. But is that a good thing you going to feel a little bit conflicted about this because productive placement you say can really spoil a film. Yes. Yes. I read your vision if you will grumpy. Grumpy? We put on the understands the need for this time. Of course, I believe in the period your story individual cinema. So I'm with its own like, I said, I I look at the future. Rich Amdi groupie. I'm the grumpy old guy. I don't know maybe points, and I disagree. This really really rich. That is wrong. You know?.

"Thirty two. Game. You can hear Thelma Todd falling into a river. And when she asks for help. The camera's zooms in on Groucho Marx as he slowly unwraps the package of lifesavers mints before throwing her Horon. It's been almost ninety years since Thelma fell out of that boat. But product placement isn't necessarily any more subtle today. Depending on where you are in the world. Let's start in Hollywood. I think it's really hard to find Hollywood feature films that don't have food product placement in them somewhere. This is Cynthia Miller, a cultural anthropologist, he specializes in film and television studies at Emerson college in Boston in the US. She says we all sub consciously make a loss of judgments about people's social status based on the food. They eat which means food. Brands are perfect for both telling a story and product placement when we see food in a film, and it looks sexy or it looks exciting or affluent, it's very attractive on a subconscious level. We don't necessarily say all well, I've got to go out and get me, some chocolate covered, strawberries. But there's that sub-conscious message that says. Yeah. People who have lives that I would aspire to or that I hold in. High regard. That's wouldn't they it becomes part of that overall picture of class aspirations kind of while I wanna be that sort of person if you look back at a lot of nineteen sixties family television programming. You see a lot of product placement of particular brands of bread or cereals, and they're all really associated with a particular kind of lifestyle values as well as sort of in the bigger picture, national identity. You know, this a here's the good middle-class American family that has these kinds of products is this something that the companies are deliberately trying to manipulate does art imitate life. Or is it the other way round? I think it's a little bit of both. When we look at kitchens in film, a middle-class families kitchen is going to be full of what we think of as. Middle-class food. There's the peanut butter and the leftover pizza in the fridge. Doughnuts on the table things like that. But there's also gonna be typically one or two things that look a little bit more class elevated because everybody kinda kinda attempts to move up a little from their own economic circumstances. Now when I notice very deliberately positioned fade brands in a film, I find it hard to maintain any suspension of disbelief. Bump Cynthia thinks product placement adds to fantasy. She says for those of us living in consumer cultures brands assigned much part of our lives that seeing them on screen makes us connect more deeply with the characters and even if audiences are increasingly aware of product placement it's still effective being self aware makes us feel very smart. And whenever we feel smart advertising tends to work. We see product placement we go, I know what you're doing there, and we very self congratulatory. Pat ourselves on the back, and we've cemented that product in our minds and the next time we're in the stores, we are buying that. In fact, I think our contemporary media awareness has actually made it easier to be more obvious because it's like this inside joke that everybody knows. It's yet. We're putting this right under your nose again here. It is what do you do if you don't like the sound of all this? You don't want to be sucked in by it. You've just said if we are really smart about it. Or we end up doing is reinforcing that brand even more in our brains. So is there anything we can do if we don't want to product placement to work on us. Wow..
