American Fascism

Recorded session from 8/29/2021

This week we are joined by Brynn Tannehill, activist and author of American Fascism: How the GOP is Subverting Democracy and Trystan Cotton, Professor of Gender Studies Department of Sociology, Gerontology and Gender, CSU (Stanislaus) and Managing Editor of Transgress Press.


“Written with a verve and panache missing from most scholarly works on the topic, American Fascism displays Brynn Tannehill’s gift for mastering vital points of detail while still offering her readers the “big picture.” Paying particular attention to economics, the law, media, and religion, she offers the first attempt at a truly comprehensive understanding of how we got to this point in our nation’s troubled history—and how we might hope to emerge from it. Most importantly, she shows how we can both understand Trumpism as fascism while also probing the deep sources of this fascism from within our own history.”
Richard Steigmann-Gall,

author of The Holy Reich: Nazi Conceptions of Christianity, 1919-1945
