5/31 Corey Pein: Portland Killings and the Rise of Right Wing Terror

May 31, 2017

Corey Pein (@coreypein), independent journalist and host of The Baffler’s ‘News from Nowhere’ podcast. Where the idea the killer identified as a Bernie supporter came from. How best to characterize the killers ideology as a fascism adapting itself to the 21st century. How fascists are co-opting the sloppy “free speech” arguments. Mainstream journalists’ lack of experience with actual white supremacists.

On the fun half – Conservatives have jingogasm over Mad Dog Mattis boast, State Department secretary gets mind blown by question over US hypocrisy over Saudi Arabia and Iran, Chris Hayes goes off on lying Gianforte spokeskid Shane Scanlon, and your calls and IMS.
