"I mean i went to state university of new york. It's tony brooke. I mean these are hyper elites. And they're going in for the so that is concerning. You're leaning in hard. And and and i understand that it does make me want to raise a couple of things We do have an electoral college. Yes we had presidents who lost popular votes. They did win the electoral college. Vote until this time when we had a challenging of the electoral college by republicans directly and i recognize acknowledge that but i find myself thinking about the emergence of some of the leaders that president trump has admired in other countries. So maybe a bolsonaro in brazil detaille in the philippines. It wasn't a us republican party in those countries and yet we've seen this emergence other places. So how how do we. How do we tell that story to ourselves. And what are those larger full phenomenon. I wonder if we are a global community at risk here. You're making a great point. It's really vital to see how badly brand of democracy that's been harmed by the developments. In the united states. I mean trump's allies and friends aired awan bolsonaro. Bolsonaro has said the other day that that it's up to the military to decide whether we're brazil is going to be a democracy or dictatorship. He's leaving it up to the military. So i mean he's being very open. The trump of the tropics. He's called so and he imitated trump's response on cova resulting in the second highest death toll in the world behind the united states so trump's anti-democratic open anti-democratic antics have correlated with a far right International movement i and this was enabled to some extent by a failure to crack down on this with say mody and present in in india The the prime minister of india. Who obama'd was not harsh enough with so also authoritarian. Nationalist religious nationalist so we have these these movements all across the world and when the united in the united states is always of course. Been hypocritical about its democracy. I mean we've only been a real democracy since the nineteen sixties or. What makes you say that well. Black americans were not allowed to vote until the nineteen sixties in the south. And so you're not a democracy if a huge part of your population is not allowed. Access to the ballot. We were 'herrenvolk folk democracy a democracy that constrains the boat to a certain populations. So you feel. We've overcome that today. Well i think that black americans have pushed us to be more and more democratic from the civil rights movement to what we saw in georgia. With stacey abrams and others enlists. Things are registering so many voters but this entire we have an enormous movement that became explicit to disenfranchise black voters..

"Now we've bracketed this conversation just now and in my introduction around the trump administration but i do want to ask you because what you've just said is quite damning of that administration were we headed in this direction prior to twenty sixteen where their larger forces at play. Yes i mean as someone who studies the the rise of authoritarian fascist movements the sort of devaluing of the elite classes the failures by the democrats and the republicans to to address. America's problems problems the yawning inequalities. It allowed it allowed. Someone like trump to common say. They've ignored you The system is rigged corrupt of the financial crisis. The iraq war This allows for positive social. Change these terrible failings of the entire leap political class but history tells us again and again it also allows for Really grim responses to our national problems and if we do that again If if we if too many americans become convinced that the government is in the hands of wealthy elites which of course it is to some extent but if but unless we address that then we open ourselves up to this again and of course unless we address our horrific racial problem with racial injustice where under democratic presidents republican presidents No matter what the administration a black americans are rightly protesting brutal treatment by a military militarized. Police that enables demagogues common. Say i am your law and order president who will take care of the problem from from nixon to trump. They have done that. So unless we deal with these terrible inequities racial and economic. We're going to go through this again. So let me make sure. Let me kind of feedback to you. What i think. I'm hearing from you. It's a combination of institution's failing people people feeling disenfranchised deep tensions along identity such as race deep economic inequality. Your saying that those create an opportunity for someone who is despotic and may lean toward fascism or authoritarianism to claim a place and become a leader. Am i understand you correctly absolutely and on on top of that. We have multiple generations. The republican party that have that have sort of leaned into anti-democracy They've lost seven out of eight of the last presidential elections. The popular vote. I and in each taught at an each each time. They've done that. They've been fine with it. And the response has been to lean into voter disenfranchisement by fraudulent claims of voter fraud. And such like. And if you do that if you're if you play the anti-democratic game you're also opening yourself up to someone who comes. Hey i'm just going to be anti-democratic why why do we have to even pretend that this is a democracy. And once we see figures like josh hawley and ted cruz do this. Which with who have no excuse. I mean these senators from missouri texas. Who joined in the questioning of i just for our listeners. Joined in the questioning of the legality of the results last week. Sorry go ahead. Yes and that's a very concerning development. Because i mean ted cruz went to princeton and harvard. josh hawley. Bankers saw new went to stanford and yale law school. These are not just delete.

"Well. I think that it's a little strong to say that the breach of the capital overall was planned. I think there are certain elements. That showed up there geared up for violence and then there are others who showed up there because they just wanted to protest sort of within legal limits and then you had both mixed together once the capital was breached but the fbi are clearly worried about pre. Planning now for events around in the inauguration. Because i think that. I think the fbi thinks that what happened last week at the capitol is perceived as a success by fringe groups on the right and so maybe they're emboldened to try it again now. That said one of the problems with domestic terrorism. Which is a little different than we were when we were contending more with foreign terrorist concerns. Is that when it comes to domestic terrorism. There's a tremendous amount of chatter that does not result in any activity so separating the wheat from the chaff is very difficult. There is a flood of online. You know social media platform based chatter and communications and comments and threats the vast majority of which results in nothing and so separating one from the other is very difficult. I think right now at least asked to massachusetts the fbi has no specific intel About planned Mayhem kind Within the commonwealth. And i think we're cautiously anticipating that things will remain quiet here as to what happens. Dc i don't know dc is obviously very locked down right now And so i don't think much can happen there but as for the four corners of my jurisdiction so far that's causing tremendous alarm.
