Segment #1: "Do Not Kill Me If I've Given You No Reason To" (feat. Malaika Jabali in Kenosha) Michael is joined by journalist and activist Malaika Jabali to discuss the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, the rebellion taking place there now, and the white 17 year-old Trump supporter who gunned down two protestors with an AK-47 in the middle of the protests. They discuss the underlying issues of race, class and power that underpin why Blake is now paralyzed and why the rebellion has erupted so forcefully. [52:40] Segment #2 : Alex Morse for Congress (feat. Mayor Alex Morse) Alex Morse is the 31 year-old, openly gay Mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts and is seeking to become the next insurgent Democrat to knock off one of the most powerful and corrupt members of the U.S House, Richard Neal. Morse has been the victim of a shameful and homophobic political smear job that has since been linked back to supporters of Neal. His campaign now has the momentum and the election is on Tuesday, September 1st. Episode Notes: Michael Moore has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the legal defense of protestors.
