Chip Berlet,Tea Parties, White Rage & Right-Wing Populism
Sit back but don¹t relax as Paper Tiger TV takes a cruise to the land of the Christian Right, “the most powerful grassroots movement in America today.” This video explores the Christian Right’s use of a constellation of communication technologies: satellite networks, cable TV, video production and the internet to achieve their vision for the future, a dark void of democracy. Stealth campaigning, wedge issues, and “family values” are some of the black holes navigated in this program. Be armed with an in-depth analysis of this theocratic movement by a galaxy of progressive stars, including authors Sara Diamond and Fred Clarkson, and activist/researchers Loretta Ross, Chip Berlet and the Rev. Barry Lynn.
