Joe Clement talks with Shane Burley about the recent uprisings against police brutality and white supremacy. They consider specifically the toxic narrative about outside agitators, from both the left and right, that politicians and the media are spreading to de-legitimize them. Shane also addresses the attempt (as we've covered before ) to label antifa a terrorist organization, the threat of a second civilwar, and what we can do during the pandemic to fight fascism.
Shane Burley is author of "Fascism Today: what it is and how to end it". He also writes for Jacobin, Waging Non-Violence, Truth-Out, and recently the NBCNews online op-ed column.
