John Knefel on CPAC and the Alt-Right
John Knefel is one half of the sibling host team of the longrunning progressive politics podcast, Radio Dispatch
. Here, in the new weekly video spinoff series about politics and current events, he discusses the relationships between the Conservative movement represented at the annual event, CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), Donald Trump, and the newer movement known as the Alt-Right, which is aligned with white nationalist causes as well as with Breitbart News, the right wing news (or meme?) platform once led by Trump’s own Chief Strategist.
Music featured in the episode: "Untitled" by Tiny Victories
