A revolt in Northern California with national influence

On January 5, 2021, one day before the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters, there was another breach of a government building — in Northern California. Dozens of people, angered by COVID-19 lockdowns, let themselves into a Shasta County government building. There, the board of supervisors was holding a meeting. Although most of the supervisors were attending remotely, angry residents — including members of a local militia — still let them have it. It was a preview of things to come: a campaign to take Shasta County's local revolt national via videos, social media, violent rhetoric — and more. Our guests are L.A. Times Northern California reporters Anita Chabria and Hailey Branson-Potts, satirist Nathan Blaze, and Cottonwood Militia member Carlos Zapata.
