Weekly Roundup: A New Jim Crow or Reconstruction 3.0?

Brad makes a big announcement regarding the show and a new direction in his professional life . . . with Dan on vacation he then discusses the long list of cases wherein Trump and Trump allies signal their desire to overthrow the democratic process in order to stage a coup. From General Flynn welcoming a Myanmar-style coup to Paul Gosar conspiring with the Proud Boys to Louie Gohmert speaking at a QAnon conference to an Oregon Rep letting militia in the side door to attack the state legislature. This anticipation of restorative violence is complemented by the methodical approach to curtailing voting rights across the country. This leads to a question: Will this era see the institution of a New Jim Crow or a New Reconstruction?
