Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dave Lindorff July 21, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s continuing efforts, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio in the basement of the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria, but emanating live-to-tape via Skype from our home-based … studios on this date, July 21st, 2020.

As with much of Donald Trump’s televised behaviour his June 1st march, Bible in hand, from the Oval Office to St. John’s Church across Lafayette Square would be just another comic display we’ve come to expect from the orange-faced clown president, but for the club-swinging, gas projectile-shooting goon squad preceding he and his clatch of reluctant government A-list photo-op backdroppers. But, there’s nothing funny about what that media exercise was meant to convey and what it means for the near future of America.

Dave Lindorff is an independent, award-winning journalist, author, and founding editor of the news website, ThisCantBeHappening.net. His articles can too be found at Salon.com and The Nation magazine, where his recent piece, ‘Tear Gas and Clubs in Lafayette Square Were Just the Beginning’ appears.
