Ep. 8: The Myths and Martyrs of White Christian Nationalism

In this final episode of Pure White analyses how myths of white women’s innocence are deployed to demonstrate national innocence. The events of January 6, 2020 included several white women who willfully disobeyed the law. When arrested, many claimed innocence despite evidence of their illegal behavior. Ashli Babbitt became well-known as a martyr to the cause of White Christian Nationalism. Early reports of her death focused on her innocence in an effort to exonerate the insurrectionists.
