The eye-opening humiliation of being a young fascist

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show laying out why he's ultimately bullish on American democracy--if decent people stay engaged. 
 
Then we're joined by Greg Sargent of the Washington Post to put the slew of vague, sloppily written gag orders that Republicans are passing across the country in order to whitewash history into a larger context.  
 
And then Vice Senior Writer Tess Owen gives us insights from a massive leak of internal texts from the neofascist youth group Patriot Front. It turns out that membership offers routine humiliations and ample opportunities to get fleeced by your leaders.
