The following video captures the 10/20/22 Battle of Homestead Foundation webinar discussion on American Fascism — its definition, psychology, history, renewed threat, and neoliberal manifestations in the workplace. My colleagues Joe White (retired labor history professor, U. of Pittsburgh) and Michele Hamilton (Asst. Dir. of Shelter Services, Centre County, PA, Women’s Resource Center) did a fabulous job after I laid out how the core characteristics of American Fascism are exploited, funded and fueled by a small group of self-serving Billionaires.
Starting with a brief history of world fascism in the 20th century, the speakers discussed current U.S. fascist movements and leaders and their threat to democracy in our time … and the means by which homegrown American fascism can be defeated. The video was Zoom-broadcast October 20, 2022. https://battleofhomestead.org/
