• Ep. 60: The Jan. 6 Fascist Insurrectionists: Enemy of Jacobin’s Enemy

    Brendan and Andrew critically review, and provide an alternative to, the soft-on-fascist-insurrection discourse of Jacobin writers Branko Marcetic, David Sirota, and Ben Burgis, which sympathizes with the insurrectionists, foregrounds their “anti-government” sentiment and alleged economic distress while concealing the racist “great replacement” thinking that motivates them, and––of course!––shifts the blame to “neoliberalism” and the Democratic Party. How does this help to advance Jacobin’s politics? The co-hosts also summarize and discuss the empirical evidence––recently published by political scientist Robert Pape and colleagues––on who the Capitol insurrectionists actually are and what actually drives pro-insurrection thinking.
