Episode 49 – the political party of white male rage

This episode covers white male rage, from the unspeakable horror inflicted by killers like Bruce MacArthur and Alexandre Bissonnette, to the structural violence inflicted by mainstream politicians — and how Maxime Bernier sits in the middle of this continuum. Bernier’s political success hinges on his ability to capture the far right — Sandy and Nora explore what this means, and what we must resist.

The trial for the murder of Abdirahman Abdi is underway in Ottawa.
