LUMPENPROLETARIAT—Pushback with Aaron Mate speaks to Dr. Gerald Horne about President Trump’s announced “1776 Commission” to modify school curriculums, especially around topics of the confederacy and slavery. This comes, as President Trump’s evolving dialectic with his electoral base has led to one of the most divided periods of U.S. history. Dr. Horne remarked:

Supposedly, he suggested that the mayor of Seattle be indicted for not cracking down sufficiently on the Black Lives Matter movement.
