In this video, Al Jazeera reports on a "flourishing" neo-Nazi music scene in the United States, citing Southern Poverty Law Center findings that selling music is a "primary source of income for racist groups." 

Rob Reynolds interviews Matt Kennard, author of the forthcoming  Irregular Army: How the US Military Recruited Neo-Nazis, Gang Members, and Criminals to Fight the War on Terrorabout extremism in American institutions. 

According to his research, says Kennard, "it could be too late ... [the military] has spent the last ten years arming and training the most dangerous extremists and neo-Nazis in the country."
