President Donald Trump speaks during a rally at the El Paso County Coliseum on February 11, 2019, in El Paso, Texas.

We speak with world-renowned educator, author and public intellectual Henry Giroux, the author of American Nightmare: Facing the Challenge of Fascism, who joins us to discuss his article at Truthout, “Resisting the Weaponization of Ignorance in the Age of Trump.” We discuss how democracies in Poland, Hungary, India, Turkey and recently Brazil have succumbed to fascist takeovers by demagogues, and how the United States in not immune to the same forces of malicious ignorance and arrogant anti-intellectualism led by our own Donald Trump.
