Politics War Room with James Carville and Al Hunt

Beating Boebert with Adam Frisch & Identity Politics with Yascha Mounk

October 5, 2023

In This Episode:

James and Al are joined by the congressional challenger to Lauren Boebert in Colorado, Adam Frish.  They discuss the factors that led to her near defeat in the last election, his strategy of drawing a contrast between the chaos of MAGA rule and sane governance, and the importance of fighting to win back rural areas.  Then they welcome Professor Yascha Mounk to explore the capitulation of pluralism to identity politics and ideological policing.  Together, they explain how despite their good intentions, proponents are bringing about new forms of discrimination and undermining trust in our institutions.
