NYGBC: The Kids are Not Alright: Conservative Youth Culture on Campus

Photo: Left Coast Right Watch https://leftcoastrightwatch.org/

This week we continue the lunatic fringe series about how the far right became the moderate center of conservatism with an episode about the toxic sludge that is conservative youth culture. We explore this vapid pool of nuclear waste through the lens of three different groups, the traditional college republicans of Ben Shapiro, the hype-beasts over at TPUSA, and the openly white supremacist College Republicans United. All three of these groups have contributed to the scariest lurch rightward in conservatism of the last decade, and fostered the rebirth of fascism in America in their own ways.

Thanks as always for listening and enjoy the show!
