Coup-Coup at the Capitol

Left Bitches (who are right)

News & Politics

Sifting through the rubble of whatever that was at the Capitol, was 2020 just a test-run for the real bad shit? First: HOW? And was it actually a coup attempt? And was that police collusion we saw? It's speculation central over here and no one does it quite like the Left Bitches. But really: would white supremacist far-right thugs have stormed Washington in the first place if government was doing its job during the pandemic? It took a deadly terrorist insurrection and attack on Washington under Confederate flags for Twitter to ban Trump. Liberals are cheering, but what precedent does this set for Silicon Valley censoring the left? It's already happening... We make some predictions re: weaponizing Big Tech's echo chamber libertarian utopia. And what won't change on Inauguration Day? What excuses for inaction will the Democrats surprise us with this time, now that they once again control the House, the Senate and the White House? Plus: why we're comfortable with polite men with blood on their hands, but not gross men like Trump. The Left Bitches are Anissa Naouai, Erica Marable, Rania Khalek, and Amanda Getty. Produced by Gregory Haddock with music by Jonathan Hurley. Visit patreon.com/leftbitches for access to extended episodes and bonus content.
