How ALEC Is Leading Anti-Lockdown Protests



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with David Armiak.

Anti-lockdown protesters across the US are largely white, conservative, pro-gun, and Trump loving. They have another thing in common – their actions are spurred by the American Legislative Exchange Council – a notorious rightwing organization that for years has coordinated state-by-state actions to promote a far-right agenda.

Now, my guest David Armiak, research director with the Center for Media and Democracy points out that ALEC has its fingerprints all over the anti-lockdown protests as well.
