11/3/15 Edward Miller: Nut Country: the Secret History of GOP Race Politics

November 3, 2015

Edward Miller, an assistant teaching professor in the Global Pathways and American Classroom programs at Northeastern University and author of Nut Country: Right-Wing Dallas and the Birth of the Southern Strategy, explains the surprising history of the modern Southern Strategy. Why JFK coined the term “nut country.” Race, class, and conservative politics. Texas politics, segregation, and racially driven politics. The Howard Hunt media empire, the first Alex Jones and the Republican devolution on civil rights.

On the Fun Half: James O’Keefe’s sad new pathetic fail. Megyn Kelly mocks the Republican-candidate debate demands. Republican debate demands. Donald Trump is amused by the “low energy” Jeb Bush. Lawrence Lessig drops out of the Democratic Primary and your calls and IMs.
