Bari Weiss joins us to look at how the woke progressives' monoculture, intolerance, and cowardice, which has been creeping into America's most treasured institutions for decades, has finally taken over. Bari describes in vivid detail what it was like to be an editor at the NY Times when their owners caved to the journalists who claimed their lives were "in danger" because of a Tom Cotton oped. And we discuss what conservatives need to do better to reach liberals and moderates who believe in the core first principles which created America, and which the progressive movement is seeking to erase from the culture.
