Ep. 234: Kathleen Belew Explains the Long History of the White Power Movement and its Global Plans for "Race War"

Kathleen Belew is a professor of history at the University of Chicago and the author of the new book Bring the War Home: The White Power Movement and Paramilitary America. 

Belew explains white supremacy is a cultural, social and political problem rather than just the pathology of a relatively small number of people, what "white power" really means, and how white supremacist and other right-wing foot soldiers, activists, and enablers are engaging in and preparing for various forms of "race war" against their "enemies".

Professor Belew also locates the recent New Zealand neo-Nazi terrorist attacks in New Zealand are part of a much larger and older pattern of right-wing violence--which includes being early users of the Internet and "social media".

On this week's show, Chauncey DeVega reflects on the reaction to his recent essay about how right-wing border militias are Donald Trump's foot soldiers and shock troops. Are the American people just exhausted from too much truth-telling? Have the American people almost fully surrendered to Donald Trump and the right-wing's assault on democracy? 

Chauncey also shares some hate mail which again shows how Donald Trump is a human drug for his political cult members.

At the end of this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey shares some quick thoughts about the new Avenger's: Endgame.
