Best of the Left Podcast #1295: How Fascism Uses White Supremacy to Delegitimize Non-Whites and Enrich the Wealthy

Today we take a look at the racist attacks by Trump and his supporters against “The Squad” and how those attacks are in line with a long tradition of working to delegitimize and silence the perspectives of non-whites in America

The Best of the Left is back with episode 1295, and this one couldn’t be more relevant. Less than a week ago, a white supremacist terrorist walked into an El Paso Walmart and murdered 21 people. His targets? Mexicans, according to his manifesto.

The President’s response to the weekend’s shootings (yes, plural) pinned the blame on mental illness and the radicalizing nature of online communities like 8chan, where both the El Paso shooter and the Christchurch shooter frequently posted. The former applauded the actions of the latter, and sought to replicate his attack. Despite this, Trump and other Republican lawmakers are only officially seeking to classify anti-fascists as terrorists, and not white supremacists, despite the FBI announcing that this latest attack is, in fact, domestic terrorism.

Best of The Left #1294: Journalism is Under Attack in America Like Never Before

Today we take a look at the ways that Trump and his administration are systematically chipping away at the concept of a free press, a hallmark tactic of authoritarian governments everywhere.”

Today Jay! Tomlinson and the award-winning Best of the Left podcast are covering Trump’s war on journalism and journalists. Multiple times the nation’s 45th President has labelled journalists the “enemy of the people.” He frequently derides news outlets like the New York Times and CNN.

The President is a known fan of Fox News, a popular conservative news corporation. That has changed in recent weeks as Fox has begun taking shots at Trump, much to his displeasure.
