Ep. 208: Max Boot Explains Why the Republican Party Needs to be Burned to the Ground

Max Boot is the author of numerous bestselling books including The Road Not Taken: Edward Lansdale and the American Tragedy in Vietnam, The Savage Wars of Peace: Small Wars and the Rise of American Power, War Made New: Technology, Warfare, and the Course of History, 1500 to Today and Invisible Armies: The Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present. His newest book is entitled The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right. In addition, he is the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick Senior Fellow in National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and a contributor to the Washington Post and CNN.

Dr. Boot and Chauncey discuss the "Never Trump" movement and why so many "traditional" and "principled" conservatives continue to support a dangerous and radically deranged and authoritarian Donald Trump and Republican Party. Dr. Boot also explains why it took him so long to acknowledge and confront his own Republican Party's long history of racism, bigotry and other authoritarian tendencies.

Dr. Boot and Chauncey also ponder if the Republican Party in its present form can ever be salvaged or should it instead be burned down to the ground. And Dr. Boot offers his thoughts on if Donald Trump is a traitor who has committed treason.

During this week's podcast Chauncey reviews another sick week in Donald Trump's American dystopia where 5-year-old children are forced to sign court documents surrendering their rights, the Republican Party keeps black and brown and young people from voting across the country in order to steal elections, and how Trump's ICE Border Immigration thugs have been robbing, raping, kidnapping, and murdering people.

Chauncey also "connects the dots" about why Donald Trump's USA Today op-ed was not really about "healthcare" but instead was another threat and encouragement of violence by the Great Leader against the Democratic Party and anyone who opposes Trump's movement. 

At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey shares a story about a wonderful human animal friend hero who saved lives during Hurricane Michael.
