Counterflow with Buck Johnson


Aug 16, 2021

This week, I welcome Thaddeus Russell back to the show. Thad is here to discuss the American Left. He is giving a course at Renegade University starting on August 23rd and going through September 13th. Thaddeus knows the Left quite well, as he grew up eyeballs deep in it and considered himself part of it for many years. In this episode, he goes over many aspects of leftism, from the abolitionists to communists and socialists to progressives to neoliberals and the nightmare we are witnessing today. The Left, at one point, fought the establishment and the powers-that-be. They now run every institution of power in the United States, and they now are the establishment. How did we get to this point? Did their "long march through the institutions" work perfectly? We talk about many names that you know: John Brown, Herbert Marcuse, BLM, the Black Panthers, the Clintons, Bernie Sanders, Kimberle Crenshaw, and more.
