“If I had to choose the organization that has done the most to threaten the votes of the non-white voter, it wouldn’t be the Ku Klux Klan nor the Proud Boys nor the white supremacists chanting, “Jews Won’t Replace Us!” These are frightening clowns marked by easy-to-spot Day-Glo racism. They’re violent, but not likely to stop many voters.
“Rather, for the real purge-meisters, think of the sponsors of PBS’ NewsHour. And, ‘Doo-de-doo-doo! It’s All Things Considered!’
“The Pew Charitable Trust. It’s the Pew Trust that founded ERIC, the Electronic Registration Information Center, the purge operation that tagged Milwaukee County Supervisor Sequanna Taylor a ‘mover,’ that is, a potential fraudulent voter who must lose her vote.”Excerpt from How Trump Stole 2020
This month’s NationofChange BookClub Pick from Greg Palast is too good (and too important) to put down.
In his usual funny-yet-informative style, and in his tradition of exposing outrageous voting suppression practices (see The Best Democracy Money Can Buy), Palast shows how Trump stole the 2020 election, and more importantly, how we can steal it back.
Impeccably researched and well-written, this book is a must-read for everyone concerned with the United States being a democracy.
How Trump Stole 2020: The Hunt for America’s Vanished Voters
“No one has told our story of our missing voters like Greg Palast”Rev. Jesse Jackson
Follow investigative reporter for Rolling Stone, The Guardian and Democracy Now! Greg Palast as he hunts for the vanished voters of Trump’s America.
“Read this book. It might just save us! Greg Palast is the most incisive journalist on elections. Plus he’s @##$% hilarious.”Josh Fox, The Young Turks
Palast lets you in on the nasty secrets of Trump-merica’s democracy:
- One in five mail-in ballots are never counted.
- The chance of your vote being thrown in the garbage is 900% higher if you’re Black than if you’re white.
- 16.7 million voters were purged from the rolls in the past two years. Guess their color.
In How Trump Stole 2020, you meet the scamps, scoundrels and grifters (or “Governors” as we call them in America) doing the dirty to voters of color. Check out the photo of Palast confronting GOP Governor Kemp of Georgia whom Palast catches under a neon pig at a bar-b-que joint to ask Kemp if he’s wiping away Black voter registrations to steal the election. The response: Palast gets busted.
The book includes an exclusive interview with Stacey Abrams on vote thievery–and a 48-page comic book from the piercing pen of Ted Rall.
You may know Palast as the fedora-wearing gum-shoe old-school investigative reporter who busted the theft of Florida in 2000 for The Guardian and in his New York Times bestseller, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.
“Palast is one of our great investigative reporters. If you are not outraged by what Palast has uncovered, you have no heart. A searing indictment of our rigged electoral system.”Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist
“Palast’s work is invaluable for our community.”LaTosha Brown, Black Voters Matter
