The Nation magazine Discussion Group with special guest Will Bunch

Sunday, January 9,  11am – Discussion Group – open to everyone

The Nation magazine Discussion Group with special guest Will Bunch author of The Backlash: Right-Wing Radicals, High-Def Hucksters, and Paranoid Politics in the Age of Obama

“The Backlash” is the first hard-hitting – yet fairly and thoroughly reported – investigative report that goes behind the hype to reveal what the Tea Party Movement is really all about. Over the last two years, I went everywhere from the militia-breeding Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in rural Kentucky to the hot asphalt of the immigration debate in Phoenix to the inner circle of the radical Oath Keepers, to find out who was joining this backlash against the Obama presidency and what they really wanted . I’ll show you Glenn Beck as you’ve never seen him before, take you behind the scenes at Sarah Palin’s coronation as queen of the Tea Party, and introduce you to the most radical extremist in the U.S. Congress. “I tried to write “The Backlash” with the same rowdy spirit as the kind of political books I grew up with in the 1970s heyday of the likes of Tom Wolfe and Hunter Thompson, and critics seems to agree. MSNBC and Slate.com’s Dave Weigel named it one of the best political books of 2010 – “angry, opinionated, fair, and very, very funny”; the New York Times’ Michiko Kakutani called it “compelling” and “persuasive”; radio’s Thom Hartmann wrote “this book could have been a movie”; while Susie Madrak of Crooks and Liars said “The Backlash” “reads like a detective novel.” Will Bunch
