Laundering White Nationalism

Maria is joined by Renée Graham, opinion columnist and associate editor at The Boston Globe, and Wajahat Ali, Daily Beast columnist and co-host of the podcast Democracy-ISH, to unpack the mass shooting at an LGBTQ club in Colorado as well as the growing white supremacy within the Republican Party. They also discuss the latest with the midterm elections, including the upcoming Georgia runoff, and what to expect in 2024.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • Wajahat Ali talks about stochastic terrorism, a term that he says explains how the GOP inevitably caused the Colorado Springs massacre, in this article for The Daily Beast.

  • Renée Graham talks about how the Colorado Springs massacre ruined the safe haven that LGBTQ clubs provide, in this article for The Boston Globe.

  • “In his first matchup against Republican Herschel Walker—in which neither candidate cracked 50 percent, leading to the Dec. 6 runoff—Warnock attracted significant support from young people, the voting bloc most likely to be concerned about climate change,” writes Scott Waldman in this article for Scientific American.
