In Radio Free Winnipeg's 4th episode of their series on Fascism & Antifa Scott and Greg talk about the historical roots of Fascism with specific attention to Fascist groups in Canada during the 1930s.

In the second half of the episode Scott and Greg discuss the role of settler-colonialism in Canada, why liberalism can't defeat Fascism and how Fascists and racists use "free speech" to shield themselves.

Correction

In the episode Scott said that the Hyman libel act was passed in 1935 after the Battle of Old Market Square. In fact it was passed in 1934 just before the Battle of Old Market Square.

In Radio Free Winnipeg's third episode on Fascism & antifa Scott and Greg interview historian John Paul-Himka about the national narratives used by Ukrainian Nationalist groups both in Ukraine and in Canada that not only glorify war criminals and Nazi collaborators but trade in historical revisionism.

John Paul-Himka is professor emeritus at the University of Alberta https://www.ualberta.ca/history-classics/people/emeriti/himka

Scott and Greg discuss why the Ukrainian national myths are important both domestically and in terms of wider geo-political trends as well as discuss similar trends around the western world. Why have these nationalistic narratives become more common and why do they find a wider audience today? How do Fascist groups use these narratives to their own advantage?
