Republican country clubs, populism, evangelism and Trump: the American far right

4:30am Sun 17 Apr
melbourne

About this session

The far right in the USA is a strange brew; well heeled Republicans, brush shoulders with rural evangelical preachers, armed militias and white supremacists. What holds all of these features together? What has the electoral defeat of Donald Trump meant for this far right? Has the Republican party become fascist? These and more questions will be dealt with in this urgent discussion.
