Neofascists are putting in the work to change America — will their opponents do the same?

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a warning to be very skeptical about the press shoe-horning local races for office into their favorite national political narratives.  

Then we are joined by author and political analyst Jared Yates Sexton to talk about the harrowing early testimony before the House's January 6 Commission, the right's flexibility when it comes to supporting the police and why the MAGA insurrection provided the right with an opportunity to pull back from the brink of authoritarianism--an opportunity that they passed on.
