New Paramount+ Docuseries On Jan. 6 Insurrection Traces Origins Of Anti-Government Extremism

WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS13) — A new 6-part documentary premieres on Paramount Plus that examines the beginnings of anti-government extremism and how it evolved over decades, culminating in the violent storming of the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Investigating the causes of far-right wrath, including lethal federal assaults on a tax evader, a white supremacist in Ruby Ridge, and a religious cult in Waco, the series aims to understand the reason for the violent insurrection and help Americans come together peacefully.

Featuring interviews with those who have witnessed the outrage firsthand, including a reformed neo-Nazi, a mother who has been the victim of vicious hate crimes, the son of a notorious white supremacist whose work of fiction became the far right's bible, and a father whose child died in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.

The series highlights the voices of people from all walks of life, recalling their stories and concerns about a country that they no longer recognize, emphasizing the question on everyone's mind: how did we get so divided, and what can be done to heal the hatred?

The docuseries, titled Indivisible: Healing Hate, is narrated by actor Mandy Patinkin and is available now on Paramount Plus.
