This episode is a roundtable discussion with Anoa Changa, Beth Lynch, Brittany B, Wendi Muse, and Kiran Opal. We discuss the recent upheaval in the leftist community over aligning with the alt-right to further progressive causes. Why is this dangerous? Why should we avoid this thinking at all costs? What are the motivations behind this shift? We discuss all of these questions and more. In light of the recent events in Charlottesville, these topics are more important than ever.
