54: The Murder of George Floyd and the Right-Wing Instigators (in Blue) I Don't Speak German

    • Politics

In this edition of IDSG, recorded less than 48 hours ago at the time of publication but already looking like an artefact of a dimly-recalled epoch, we talk about the savage 'ropeless lynching' of George Floyd by police, the subsequent explosion of protest and repression that has rocked the US, and a little bit about Trump's escalatingly bloodthirsty fascistic rantings.  Daniel addresses the question of whether the violence has been stoked by fascist agents provocateurs.  Basically the answer is: yes, but they're in blue.
