Ep. 191: When Ted Thornhill Taught a Class Called "White Racism" the Right-wing Mob Threatened His Life

Ted Thornhill is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a Professor of Sociology at Florida Gulf Coast University who received national attention because he dared to teach a course in January 2018 called "White Racism". Like many other educators in the Age of Trump, Professor Thornhill was targeted by a coordinated campaign of harassment--including death threats that necessitated his needing armed guards outside of his classroom--by the right-wing mob including Fox News.   During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Professor Thornhill and Chauncey discuss how the classroom is a political space, the right-wing campaign against him, and how he did not yield or surrender to the threats of the Fox News-driven thuggery and harassment. Professor Thornhill and Chauncey also highlight common misconceptions about racism in "colorblind America", the myth that is "reverse racism", and of course how Donald Trump was able to win the White House.  In this week's episode, Chauncey DeVega again sounds the alarm about the American fascist Donald Trump. This week's warning: Donald Trump's attorneys recently told special counsel Robert Mueller that Trump is above the law and is a de facto king or emperor. And to make matters even worse, Rudy Giuliani actually told the Huffington Post that Donald Trump could kill James Comey and there would be no immediate consequences because Trump is president.

During this week's podcast Chauncey DeVega also makes a realization: Donald Trump is a pimp and American democracy is his prostitute.
