Episode 213: The Coming Domestic War on Terror feat. Glenn Greenwald
For our first episode of 2021 we're joined by the one and only Glenn Greenwald to discuss the January 6th riots at the DC Capitol Building and what the media reaction to them can tell us. In particular we focus on the long term plan to codify "domestic terrorism" as a federal crime and speak about why it is so disturbing to see so many embracing war on terror rhetoric to describe Trump supporters. Glenn has extensive and well known experience reporting on the global war on terror and he walks us through some of the most egregious examples of what we can expect to see as President-elect Biden and many in Congress call for bringing that war to the homeland. Also we make a hail mary plea for the pardons of Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and other deserving recipients.
