‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR JUNE10, 2022: Gerald Horne on the Roots of U.S. Fascism… Headlines on Jan. 6 Commission… Uvalde Testimony… COINTELPRO in DC? and More

What do the attacks of January 6, the horrific massacre of children in Uvalde, and the U.S. obsession with guns all have in common? The answer is the state of Texas. We spend the hour with our geopolitical analyst, the prolific historian Gerald Horne, discussing his new book: The Counterrevolution of 1836: Texas Slavery & Jim Crow and the Roots of US Fascism. Not only was Texas a bulwark in the effort to maintain slavery. it was a place where the Old South met the Wild West, and where the genocide of indigenous people was official policy.
