LISTEN: Chauncey DeVega & Jason Stanley
Jason Stanley is a professor of philosophy at Yale University and author of the bestselling books How Fascism Works: The Politics of Us and Them as well as How Propaganda Works. Stanley’s essays and other writing have been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Boston Review, and The Guardian.
In this riveting discussion, Jason warns that the pandemic is an opportunity for the Trump regime to further advance its campaign against the Constitution, democracy, human rights, human dignity, and freedom across all areas of American society.
He also explains how Trump’s fake anti-public health “protests” in Michigan and other parts of the country exemplify the types of forces which helped bring fascist and authoritarian movements such as Hitler and the Nazi regime to power.
