Undercover With the New Alt-Right

August 25, 2023
“Going to a Proud Boys riot with a neo-Nazi is not something I ever expected to do,” writes Amanda Moore.

For our latest issue, the writer and MAGA researcher spent 11 months pretending to be a far-right extremist. Moore, convinced that “the threat to the country was misunderstood by much of the press and far more dangerous than what was being reported,” set out on an investigation with a microphone hidden between her breasts. What she found was perhaps even more unnerving and unsettling than what she expected—“a radical youth movement trying to take over the GOP.”
