Ep. 127: The Terrorists Next Door

Earlier this week, the government announced the arrest of 13 men from Michigan who plotted to kidnap and do harm to Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a woman, a Democrat and a regular foil to Donald Trump. Among their grievances was Governor Whitmer's level-headed and prudent handling of the pandemic, which included mask-wearing and temporary shutdowns of businesses and schools. Michael Moore has been covering these "Michigan Militia" types for a long time, beginning with a 1979 radio interview of the Grand Dragon of the Michigan Ku Klux Klan and including a few on-camera interviews over the past few decades (see below). However, he's never seen them have an ally and leader in the White House. In this episode, Michael shares his thoughts on this new generation of homegrown, caucasian, Michigan terrorists and how the stakes have been raised when it comes to removing their leader from the White House in a few weeks.

Additionally, Mike shares his thoughts on how Donald Trump is drowning, and what his Eagle Scout training taught him about how we should deal with him.
