Paul Street – Episode 166

This week Eric welcomes back to the show Paul Street, author of the brand new book Hollow Resistance: Obama, Trump, and the Politics of Appeasement published by CounterPunch. Eric and Paul discuss the various ways that Obama paved the way for Trump and the fact that Trump could not exist were it not for Obama. Eric and Paul explore Obama’s reactionary effect on liberals and Black voters, his electoral fetishism, his faux resistance to Trump, and much more. From the fascist backlash against him to his attacks on the Left, Eric and Paul dissect everything Obama…and it ain’t pretty.
