“Episode Summary

Matt and Sam discuss the role of moral panics in America’s right turn with Sarah Marshall and Michael Hobbes, the hosts of the You’re Wrong About podcast.
Episode Notes

Matt and Sam are joined by special guests Sarah Marshall and Michael Hobbes of the You’re Wrong About podcast to discuss moral panics—from tales of rampant Satanism in the late 1970s to the Stranger Danger wave in the 1980s and beyond—and their role in the rise of rightwing politics in America. What do such “Save the Children” stories tell us about the way the conservative mind conceives of morality and power? What do they tell us about American culture and politics? It all builds to a discussion of QAnon and both the promise and problems with empathy.

Why Biden’s Lies Are Worse Than Trump’s…

“Jack Allison doesn’t miss Donald Trump’s policies or lies. But he does miss the media’s adversarial treatment of the former president. The same media is now white washing Biden, covering up his lies and enabling his worst policies. There are still kids in cages and Biden is offering less money than Trump did. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you lose a midterm.”

“Bernie Sanders blasts Republican’s bs stimulus proposal.

WASHINGTON—Senate Republicans released new details of their roughly $618 billion coronavirus-relief proposal Monday, including a round of $1,000 direct checks per adult, ahead of a meeting later in the day with President Biden.

The GOP proposal, roughly one-third the size of Mr. Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan, would provide $300 a week in enhanced federal unemployment benefits through June, include $20 billion each for child care and schools, $50 billion for small-business relief and $160 billion for vaccines, testing and protective equipment, according to a summary of the proposal’s spending released Monday morning.

Ex-Trump Supporters Vote To Impeach Him…

“Trump supporters now are sort of believing reality.

A slim majority of Americans think the Senate should convict former President Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial and bar him from being able to hold federal office in the future, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll has found.

The new poll, which was conducted Friday and Saturday and has a nationally representative probability sample of 508 respondents, found that 56 percent of Americans backed the both actions.

That support was starkly partisan, however. More than 9 in 10 Democrats backed both conviction and a ban on holding public office in the future, while 8 in 10 Republicans opposed both.
