How do the radical movements of today—Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and others—compare with their counterparts of the 1960s, such as the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground? What would the leftists of the ’60s say about the rioting that followed the death of George Floyd, the toppling of disfavored statues, and efforts today to “defund the police”?

 

Lee Edwards, a distinguished fellow in conservative thought at The Heritage Foundation’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for American Studies, joins the podcast to discuss the similarities and differences of the left of then and now.

 

We also cover these stories:

  • New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut have added four more states to their quarantine list.
  • California is shutting down most indoor businesses—again.
  • A federal prisoner on Tuesday morning was executed, the first such execution since 2003.
