2656 - Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America w/ Hahrie Han

The Majority Report with Sam Seder

Emma hosts Hahrie Han, director of the SNF Agora Institute and Professor of Political Science at Johns Hopkins University, to discuss her recent book Prisms of the People: Power & Organizing in Twenty-First-Century America, that she co-authored with Elizabeth McKenna and Michelle Oyakawa. Hahrie situates her relationship with organizing, starting as a child of Korean immigrants in Texas, growing as she became involved in student activism, and eventually being juxtaposed with the electoral work she put in on campaigns in the 90s. Emma and her jump into the importance of self-determination, walking through her first-hand experiences in fights against SB1070, Prop 206, and even a fight for higher minimum wages in Arizona, and looking at the importance of having short terms goals in building towards a larger-scale project. They wrap up the interview reflecting on why recent movement campaigns have failed to capitalize on lingering inspiration, and explore the case study of the activism that got us prohibition. Emma wraps up the first half by discussing Sam’s vacation and touching on Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Milley’s response to the media fulling buying into US intelligence’s clamor for continued power in the Middle East. And in the Fun Half: The MR crew are joined by Brandon Sutton as always, to discuss sick day tactics, and Dave from Jamaica gives his own input to inspire Brandon to go full Foucault. Next, they jump into the Islamophobic fear-mongering around refugee acceptance, from Stinchfields and Hannitys to Bill Mahers and Sam Harrises, Alex from NY returns with two fun fueled matchups, before Brian from AZ engages with Bill Maher’s religion takes, and reflects on the 9/11 attackers calling him devil by name (??). They also cover some of Bill O’Reilly’s takes on American Marxism (aka Disney going woke) and Dinesh D’Souza gives credit to the Taliban where it’s due, plus, your calls and IMs!
