Chris Hedges on Bernie Sanders’ “Race Problem” and America’s Broken Politics of Spectacle and Corruption

In yet another thought-provoking episode of the Chauncey Devega Show , one of my favorite public intellectuals, Chris Hedges, explains how the Michael Cohen hearings before Congress are just another symptom of how America’s political leaders–both Democrats and Republicans–are corrupt and live in their own reality, why Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are hated for telling too much truth, and warns about the strangle hold that Christian fascists have over the United States through their unholy alliance with Donald Trump.

And Chris Hedges is also very direct about how Bernie Sanders has a “race problem”, one that is fundamentally rooted in the fact that most white liberals actually have no real and meaningful relationships with black people or other nonwhites.

Chauncey’s wit is hilarious & always on point. If you’re pressed for time, skip to the 24:40 mark in the link above to go straight into the conversation.
