UNLOCKED /152/ I Can't Believe It's Not Weimar ft. David Broder

Aufhebunga Bunga

On why anti-fascism is a problem.  The Trump presidency and the current protests in the US have led many to argue this is just like the 1930s. The implication is that fascism is rising and the Left must join up with liberals to oppose this evil. Why is this historical analogy so wide of the mark? Was the Left really culpable for the fascists rise to power? And anyway, our age is vastly different to interwar Europe. So what is the real function of calls to anti-fascism?Readings: We Don’t Live in Weimar Germany, David Broder, Jacobin The Trap The Democrats Walked Right Into, Andrew Sullivan The End of Anti-Fascism, David Broder, Jacobin What Is Trump?, Dylan Riley, NLR
