Listeners and co-hosts alike have been wanting Andrew to do a breakdown of the situation in Portland. There are big questions like, for example, how? and WTF? and what can anyone do? Andrew answers these and gives us the timeline of what’s led to the Trump administration sending out paramilitary troops to abduct people in unmarked vans, like a totally non-fascist president would do.
Before that, we talk about the gun wielding couple from St. Louis who threatened BLM protestors, and how they’re totally not going to face any justice for their undeniable crimes because they are white.
