Was January 6, 2021 an aberration or was it part of a long history of political violence in the United States? Join Hilary and Geoff as they discuss the role political violence played in the nation’s founding, its presence in the Capitol Building prior to January 6, and its potentially cyclical nature. Along the way we’ll cover Tulsa 1920, the Oklahoma City Bombing of 1995, and the BLM movement.
