Blood Red Lines: How Nativism Fuels The Right


FEATURING BRENDAN O’CONNOR – There are many post-mortems of Donald Trump’s presidency, arguably the worst 4 years in modern American history. Among them is a new book by writer Brendan O’Connor that distinctly makes the links between the resurgent white supremacist movement backing Trump and a fiscal conservatism fueled by billionaire elites. At the same time a resurgent left rooted in movements outside the Democratic Party is taking hold and is a critical piece of the historical backdrop to Trump and Trumpism.


Brendan O’Connor,  journalist and writer in New York. He has written for The Baffler, The New Yorker, and The New York Times. His new book is called Blood Red Lines: How Nativism Fuels the Right.
