Ep. 300: To Save America the Republican Party and Its Policies Must Be Burned to the Ground
There are two guests on this very special 300th episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show.
David Rothkopf is the CEO of The Rothkopf group. He was also a senior official in the Clinton Administration and CEO and editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy Magazine. He is the author of many books and articles including the forthcoming Traitor: A History of American Betrayal from Benedict Arnold to Donald Trump.
Rothkopf is a frequent contributor to such leading news media outlets as The Washington Post, The New York Times, Financial Times, Time, CNN, and Newsweek.
Rothkopf is also the host of the twice-weekly podcast Deep State Radio.
He explains how the Democratic Party and Joe Biden need to move from being on the defensive and trying to preserve and resurrect a sense of “normal” to instead becoming a force for radical change and improving American democracy and society through a scorched earth approach to defeating Donald Trump, the Republican Party and overturning its policies.
He also warns that the Democrats are not able to truly defeat the Republican Party because of a deep naivete about how power really works and the extremes that Trump, McConnell and other Republicans and conservative-authoritarians are willing to go in order to win at any and all costs.
Dr. David Reiss is a psychiatrist and contributor to the best-selling volume, The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump. He is a longtime friend of The Chauncey DeVega Show.
Dr. Reiss reflects on how people are grappling with anxiety, anger, and fear in the Age of Trump and his pandemic and what feels like a moment when time itself has been upended. Dr. Reiss also shares his thoughts on people finding sudden love and romance – and passion – with strangers in a moment of death, fear, and disruption.
Chauncey DeVega explains what critical race theory really is and why the new Apartheid Trump regime is so obsessed with it. Chauncey also shares his disinterest in gossip and more “revelations” about Donald Trump’s evil and the Kremlin on the Potomac
And Chauncey DeVega reflects on these 300 episodes of the podcast and offers thanks and appreciation to all the listeners and supporters who have been here for this six-year (and ongoing) journey.
