God Bless the Movement Part 1: The Kingdom of the Father

A dive into the primordial origins of the Movement - the John Birch Society and the George Wallace campaign - as well as the Dixiecrats. Often told is the story of the civil rights movement and the "social revolution" of the 60s, but the story of the backlash is long forgotten. This is the story of how the FBI, the John Birch Society, and the Dixiecrats gave birth to a new ideology and preserved the power of America's ruling class.
