Shane Burley Discussing ‘Fascism Today’ on Rise Up With Sonali

GUEST: Shane Burley, writer and filmmaker based in Portland, Oregon. His work has appeared in ROAR Magazine, In These Times, Labor Notes, and make/shift. He is the author of the new book Fascism Today: What It Is And How to End It.

BACKGROUND: Donald Trump has been the dream president of the so-called Alt Right, a movement that has been quietly building up for years before November 2016. “The synergy between the activist far-right and a successful presidential candidate is something dangerously new,” writes my guest Shane Burley in a new book called Fascism Today: What It Is And How to End It.

In it Burley explores not only the complex and even contradictory idealogies that comprise the “Alt-Right,” but offers some concrete historical models for a broad-based mainstream American response to rising fascism could beat back the dangerous trend.
