Claire Conner returns to MOMochat in this repeat from earlier this summer to talk about the alarming inroads the radical right has made into the Republican party, Congress and statehouses around the country. Claire is the author of Wrapped in the Flag, a memoir of growing up in a family of John Birch Society leaders.
"The John Birch Society does influence many right wingers," says Claire.
Claire says that a helpful Birch Society research assistant provided her with background materials for her book. "She told me that the Society has had the largest growth in its history since Barack Obama's campaign."
MOMocrats Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills host the political discussion from the progressive point of view. Produced by Engender Media Group.
