Weekly Roundup: God’s Empire

Brad and Dan discuss the dangerous rhetoric coming from the right that frames the COVID outbreaks as the result of “infestations” of undocumented immigrants. It is not founded in data. And it is dangerously dehumanizing.

They then discuss Madison Cawthorn’s suggestion that masks for children = abuse. This is rich in a country where kids practice active shooter drills regularly.

They also discuss Tucker Carlson’s framing of Ashil Babbitt as an unarmed protester who was executed.

The episode finishes with criticism of Joe Biden’s American Empire discourse and Christian nationalism.
