Timothy Snyder is a Professor of History at Yale University and the author of the bestselling books On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century and The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America. His new book is Our Malady: Lessons in Liberty from a Hospital Diary.
Dr. Snyder explains why America's mainstream news media continues to avoid describing Donald Trump and his regime as fascist and authoritarian – and how such behavior, to this late date, continues to empower and normalize his fascist authoritarian movement.
Dr. Snyder also details how Donald Trump and his regime used the coronavirus — and the pain and social injustice it has revealed and made worse — as a weapon against democracy and the American people.
And at the end of this conversation, Timothy Snyder warns that the United States is in the midst of a years-long slow-motion Reichstag Fire emergency that Election Day 2020 may not resolve.
