November 5: American Fascism

We'll be joined for the hour by author and journalist David Neiwert, who argues that the current American political climate shares a disturbing number of features with fascist movements. We'll discuss the ascendancy of authoritarianism in the United States, and the implications of Tuesday's election results for these trends.

Neiwert is the author of Death on the Fourth of July and In God's Country, which examine white supremacists and the militia movement.
