Paul Johnson's Interview with WESA

WESA asked Paul to talk a bit about political rhetoric in the presidential campaign. The interview covers the topic of the highly vitriolic and often violent campaign rhetoric in 2020. Discussing whether or not this campaign falls outside of historic norms, the interview touches on the false equivalences between leftist protestors and white supremacist militants, whether or not civility should be an aim of public discourse, and discusses the role of the GOP in collapsing campaign norms.
