If there was a way to play music on this program without getting copyright violated, I’d open today’s show with “History Repeating” by the Propellerheads featuring Shirley Bassey. I fear that we are witnessing the rise of fascism exactly as it played out in Europe in the last century- and many times before. Some of us are even narrating the the steady slide into an authoritarian dictatorship as the bad guys are plotting to continue their coup and finish what they started in 2020 by stealing the elections in 2022 and 2024. And we sit here watching it happen, powerless to do anything to stop their momentum. This is the perfect time to call on a historian to see how off the mark I am, or not. Harvey J. Kaye returns to the show today. I’ll also ask him about the 1-2 punch of op-ed pieces in the NY Times and WaPo written by Republicans, vowing to be one-issue voters.. they’ll vote only for Democrats until the threat of Trump and his sycophants is really over.
