The Politics of Angst

Paul Gottfried joins Richard to discuss the miraculous election of David Brat and what it means. Is middle-class angst turning into a revolt against the establishment? Or is Lucy preparing to pull the football away from Charlie Brown one more time. Paul and Richard also examine the sordid, chaotic end to America’s involvement in Iraq. The “paleoconservative” movement, including The American Conservative magazine, was defined by the Iraq War. What’s the future of the alternative Right?
