“Truth and Reconciliation” | The Roundtable Ep. 43

In a staggering display of dangerous hysterics, leftists have taken to floating the idea of post-Trump “truth and reconciliation commissions.” This of course amounts to the flogging of sinners (read: conservatives) against wokeism. At AOC’s call, one group actually started making a list of people who worked for him in an attempt to cancel those public servants. Our editors, sure to be first on the list, discuss the meaning of this disastrous development.
