Weekly Roundup: The Cold Civil War Heats Up

Brad and Dan begin this 4th of July weekend episode with thoughts from James Baldwin, who discussed his love for America as a “lover’s quarrel.”

They then lay out the evidence for the fact that the Cold Civil War is escalating–from Trump’s Revenge Tour, to new data on how White Evangelicals voted in 2020, to Governor Kristi Noem turning the South Dakota National Guard into soldiers-for-hire, to the Oath Keepers admitting the armed conspiracy to prevent Biden from becoming president on 1/6.

They finish by examining what the Supreme Court’s decision on voting rights means moving forward, and how bipartisanship with a toxic party is not a virtue to pursue.
