Jesse Walker to Speak in Baltimore About Conspiracy Theories and the Election

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This Saturday afternoon I’ll be giving a talk, at Baltimore’s Kol Halev synagogue, called “Fear, Conspiracy, and Presidential Campaigns: Is This Election Different From All Others?” (Since the event is being hosted by a synagogue, we’re going with a Passover-flavored title.) Here is Kol Halev’s description of the discussion:

Come on Saturday, October 22 at 1:30 p.m. to KHL to hear Jesse Walker, author of the well-received book The United States of Paranoia.

You may believe you’re living through a uniquely fraught presidential campaign. But Jesse Walker has done a fascinating job of describing American political paranoia from our inception as colonies to our post-9/11 world.

The talk will be a mix of current events and historical context, and the topics to be covered include Trump’s conspiracy theories, the anti-Trumpsters’ conspiracy theories, and the clown scare. (No, really. I swear it’s relevant.) If you’d like to see it, come to 6200 North Charles Street at 1:30. Don’t be confused by the sign outside that says “Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Church”; the synagogue meets at a church. (I’m hoping some of the Presbyterians will stop in too.) Admission is free.
