Description

The College of Liberal Arts' University Forum Lecture Series presents "The Radical Right Has a Radical Plan: What Taking Back the Country Really Means," a talk by Claire Conner, author of "Wrapped in the Flag" (Beacon Press, 2013).

Conner will connect the dots from past right-wing radicals to today’s extremists. Conner’s father was a national spokesperson for the John Birch Society, one of America’s most radical right-wing groups. She chronicles her experiences growing up in a Birch family and discusses the current plans of anti-government libertarians, religious zealots, and old John Birchers to take America back 100 years.
