Short: Anti-Semitism on the Left with Spencer Sunshine

albert-einstein-2

On this short, Sam returns to the studio and we reflect on some recent incidents of anti-Semitism on the left in Canada. We then speak with Spencer Sunshine, an anti-fascist activist and researcher, about Christopher Bollyn, an anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist and holocaust denier who recently gave a talk at a leftist space in New York City. Spencer was part of a protest held outside the event, and explains the context surrounding it.
