Sam and Emma host journalist and author Brendan O’Connor to discuss his new book, Blood Red Lines: How Nativism Fuels the Right, on how American fascism is playing out at the US border. Sam, Emma, and Brendan discuss how we arrived at our current moment of border nativism and how capital and the far-right broker their political and policy ends regarding immigration at the southern border. And a brief history of what happens when the right coopts environmental language to advance their politics of racial purity.
