Minnesota Progressive Repartee – August 5, 2019

Brett Johnson and Sam Turnberg host today’s Repartee. We talk about:

How using language like “infest” “rats” and “invasion” normalize hate, whether that’s the intentional or not. Also why we need to stop blaming “mental illness” for mass shootings.

More numbers on the lack of middle class housing in Mpls and St. Paul

What is a “news desert” and how it’s negatively impacting several MN towns

The MN House has a few anti vax members…and they’re not shy about it
