Rock County Progressives event with Matt Rothschild on “Trump and Fascism” 🗓

Events

“Matt Rothschild has done the public an invaluable service by alerting us to the many ways President Trump may be a fascist,” said Chuck Ogg of the Rock County Progressives. “We share Matt’s alarm over how the President appears to be hyper-nationalistic and militaristic, the ways Trump scapegoats minorities including Muslim and Mexican Americans, plus his continued targeting of the media and the judiciary as enemies.”  Therefore we are excited to have Matt speak on this at our upcoming educational forum, ‘Trump and Fascism.’ Matt is the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, an organization which advocates for clean and open government. Matt worked at The Progressive magazine for 32 years, where he was the editor and publisher.  His opinion pieces have appeared in major newspapers, and he’s appeared on Nightline, NPR, C-SPAN, and the O’Reilly Factor. This will be held on Wednesday, March 8 at the Basics Cooperative Natural Foods Store in Janesville.  This is an independent event not affiliated with Basics.  The speaker will begin at 6:30 PM, doors will open at 6 PM. This event is free and open to the public.”
