Ep.11: Fighting Times - An Interview With Jon Melrod

The Federalist Outpost

Dec 23 2022 • 1 hr 26 mins

A rebel in the 1960's and 70s', Jon Melrod was a political activist and union organizer in one of America's most turbulent eras. His book, Fighting Times: Organizing on the Front Lines of the Class War, details Jon's experiences in the midst of student protests and police clashes during the height of national unrest, as well as labor fights with some of America's most powerful manufacturers. Perhaps most surprisingly, Jon's story includes the documented efforts of the FBI to black-ball him from employment and stifle his free speech rights as a result of his political beliefs. In this episode, we explore the parallels between the American protest era and the modern political and cultural environment.
