Ep. 56: Denial and Fear Will Not Save The American People From Donald Trump's Fascist Assaults

Ruth Ben-Ghiat is Professor of History and Italian Studies at New York University and an expert on fascism and authoritarianism. Her new book is Strongmen: From Mussolini to the Present.

Ruth Ben-Ghiat warns that Donald Trump’s threats of violence against the American people are very real.   

She also explains that the American news media has largely normalized Donald Trump because they are unable to admit that the United States is a failed democracy on the brink of full-on fascism.

And Ruth Ben-Ghiat explains that the American people (including the country’s political elites) remain in denial about the existential dangers of neo-fascism and autocracy because to admit the truth would mean they would have to take action against such forces.
