Sam Goldman talks to Caroline Duble, the Political Director of Avow Texas (https://avowtexas.org/) about the abortion ban set to go into effect September 1st and the larger fight for abortion rights. Avow Texas' slogan is "Unapologetic Abortion Advocacy" (cheers for that!). Then, we play the speech given by the valedictorian at Lake Highlands HS in Dallas. 18 yr. old Paxton Smith eloquently and courageously gave voice to all the millions of people affected by this fascist law.

Sam Goldman interviews Matthew Rozsa (@MatthewRozsa) about his recent article for Salon.com: Trump's Big Lie and Hitler's: Is this how America's slide into totalitarianism begins? which reads in part:  "The Germans who 'believed' in Hitler's Big Lie did so not because he had  any proof that Germany had been stabbed in the back, but because they  hated Jews, hated leftists and wanted to restore the German Empire to  its pre-World War I glory. The Republicans who 'believe' in Trump's Big  Lie do so not because there is any logical argument that Biden stole the  election, but because they don't want to admit that a majority of  Americans do not support their policies. In order to stay in power, they need to disenfranchise racial minorities, low-income voters and anyone  else who might be inclined not to support Republican politicians." Protests continue this week against the unrelenting stream of police murders across the country. Find one near you and join in!

Sunsara Taylor interviews Dr. Kristin Kobes Du Mez (@kkdumez), author of Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation, about the rise of militant and militaristic patriarchy among Christian fascists as a major social force in this country (originally broadcast on The RNL Show).  Then, Sam Goldman (@SamBGoldman) and Coco Das @coco_das talk about how and why the call for continuous non-violent mass protests to drive out the Trump/Pence regime didn't take root - and why that means we still face a serious threat of fascism in the United States.  Send your comments to samanthagoldman@refusefascism.org or @SamBGoldman.

It's the 50th episode!  We started the podcast this past summer; the week millions began to pour into the streets rebelling against white supremacy and demanding justice for George Floyd. When we began a fascist regime was tightening its grip on society; we called the podcast "Inside With #OutNow" as the movement to get these fascists out became all the more urgent.  Since then, we've covered Trump's refusal to wear a mask as a signal to fascism and other forms of fascist propaganda, the white supremacy, xenophobia and misogyny that is the core of this fascism, Trump’s death cult, the Christian Fascist movement and its embrace of Trump, American exceptionalism and American mythology; faith, resistance and complicity under fascism. We've shared voices from the frontlines: from Portland and LA to North Carolina and the suburbs of Chicago, and overall the need to stop fascism and organizing methods to mobilize all who can be united against it. Throughout all of this we have mobilized people to act in the name of humanity.  Thanks to all the amazing guests of the show as well as all of YOU listening, sharing and commenting. Donate this week and help us reach more people and do more... All donors who give $50 for this milestone will receive a beautiful Humanity enamel pin as a thank you (if you provide your address).  This week, Sam Goldman interviews Susan Neiman, director of the Einstein Forum in Germany and author of Learning from the Germans: Confronting Race and the Memory of Evil and Daryle Lamont Jenkins, Executive Director of One People's Project.

Sam Goldman talks with journalist and author Sarah Posner (@SarahPosner) about Trump's impeachment trial. Read Sarah's recent piece, How the Christian right helped foment insurrection.  Upon acquittal, Trump said, “Our historic, patriotic and beautiful movement to Make America Great Again has only just begun. In the months ahead I have much to share with you, and I look forward to continuing our incredible journey together to achieve American greatness for all of our people. There has never been anything like it!” And as much as he lies with every breath, these statements about only just beginning will prove true if we don’t stop them.  Send your comments to samanthagoldman@refusefascism.org or @SamBGoldman.
