EP 420: Dr. Brad Onishi On Extremist History Of White Christian Nationalism And What Comes Next

In his latest book “Preparing for War: The Extremist History of White Christian Nationalism and What Comes Next,” Dr. Brad Onishi, who teaches at the University of San Francisco and co-hosts the hugely popular podcast “Straight White American Jesus,” offers us a “…clear-eyed, compelling study of the road to Jan. 6 and the possible future of the politics-versus-religion battle in the U.S.” (Kirkus Reviews). In this interview I asked him to focus on the powerful and increasingly pervasive myth that motivates White Christian Nationalists, as well as the sizable migration of WCNs from Blue States to heavily Red States.
