Right-Wing Tea Party like micro-protests are erupting. Dr. Emma Long discusses how history, COVID-19, freedom, & American History applies.
Is the Right-Wing Tea Party history repeating itself?
We will get an amplified movement not commensurate with its true size. In the age of Donald Trump, it may seem so. It seems however that the mainstream media may not be falling for the con. Yesterday we showed how MSNBC host Katy Tur handled it. Today it’s Lawrence O’Donnell.
In the second part of our program, Dr. Emma Long discusses these issues and more with us. Who is Dr. Emma Long?

Wisconsin sees at least seven cases of COVID-19 as a result of in-person voting amid pandemic
“Voters wait in line at a polling place at Riverside University High School on April 7, 2020, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.”
As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, events nationwide are being canceled, but not without protest. States across the country have postponed elections in efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic. Despite health concerns and an executive order by the governor to postpone elections, Wisconsin Republicans refused to postpone races for state and local office in addition to the presidential primary. Insisting the election go on, Republicans in the state fought the order with the support of the U.S. Supreme Court resulting in a forced election on April 7. Of course, their actions didn’t end without dire consequences; health officials have linked at least seven cases of COVID-19 to state election activities, Milwaukee Health Commissioner Jeanette Kowalik said Monday.
According to Kowalik six of the cases involve Milwaukee voters and one is a Milwaukee poll worker, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. Officials are investigating further into the cases to inquire additional information including whether the virus was concentrated in any of the city’s five polling places and if any of the cases resulted in death. As Daily Kos previously noted, election officials were operating only five in-person voting centers for a city of 600,000 people.
