The past and future of authoritarian violence in the GOP

Hello Readers,

Apologies for not having posted for awhile. But here’s a piece on past and future of violent authoritarianism in the GOP up today at the Washington Post:

“According to the Public Religion Research Institute, an astonishing 30 percent of Republicans believe that “true American patriots may have to resort to violence” to save the country. The poll was conducted as the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection continues to uncover communication among protest organizers, Republican members of Congress and Trump White House staff. Together, they reveal the unavoidable fact that one of the two great political parties in the United States has been transformed top to bottom into a vehicle for far-right extremism.”
