Below is a video of the Left Forum panel, “Understanding Our Resistance,” a far-reaching discussion between two of the country’s most respected Left public intellectuals, Prof. Anthony Monteiro, a W.E.B. Dubois scholar, and Glen Ford, Executive Editor of Black Agenda Report.

They discuss such topics as the Left’s resistance and Democratic Party “resistance” to Trump, signs of growing political independence in the Black community, the contradictory nature of the white vote for Trump, the extraordinary Russia-gate uproar in the US corporate media; the role of the “Deep State” and the corporate media in thwarting the Executive Branch, and why they seek to do so; and the characteristics of a US imperialism in decline.

The discussion (120 minutes) is rich and insightful. It is followed by twenty minutes of Q & A.
