Saint John's Bar and Eatery Capitol Hill
Tues April 24, 6–8 pm
Emboldened by President Donald Trump's unabashed nativism, white nationalists and neo-Nazis are bringing their hate to the public sphere in a way that would have seemed unimaginable just a few years ago. Meanwhile, a debate is brewing over how to best respond to their message. Should we protest Neo-Nazis? What about punching them? Or should we ignore them?
Join The Stranger for a lively discussion with people who explore these questions every day: David Neiwert, a contributor to the Southern Poverty Law Center and the author of Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump; Dr. Laurie Marhoefer, a professor of history at the University of Washington who studies the rise of the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany; David Lewis, a freelance journalist who snuck into Seattle's white nationalist convention and wrote about his experience for The Stranger; and Duke Aaron, a member of the Puget Sound John Brown Gun Club, an affiliate of the Redneck Revolt network, the anti-racist, anti-fascist community defense formation.
