Weekly Roundup: Trump’s Insurrection

Brad and Dan analyze the January 6 Insurrection at the United States Capitol. 

They begin by discussing the unprecedented aspects of the events. 

Then, a discussion of Christian nationalism and its manifestation through insurrectionists, the actions and rhetoric of Senator Josh Hawley, and the activism of Ginny Thomas–wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. 

After discussing the new conspiracy theory that antifa was behind the Insurrection, they turn to details surrounding the Capitol Police. 

The episode finishes with reasons for hope: Abrams, Warnock, Ossoff–stalwart members of the Religious Left.
