THE ABSOLUTE STATE OF PRIDE-AHO

It’s an all-Idaho episode today! First we get a briefing from Redoubt AFA about the fascist shennanigans that led up to Patriot Front getting mass-arrested at Couer d’Alene Pride earlier this month. Then we talk to independent reporter Alissa Azar, who was on the ground in Cour d’Alene for the event and got some of the best footage of Patriot Front getting mass-arrested. Then we give a rundown on the two large adult sons of Christian fascist leader Matt Shea’s right hand man who got caught participating with Patriot Front. Lastly, we’re talking to veteran journalist David Neiwert, who’s giving us a deep-dive on the groups threatening Couer d’Alene Pride-goers and the deep roots of hate in the Pacific Northwest.
