Before its bloody and violent present, Florida had a bloody and violent past of colonial brutality, racially motivated terrorism, and politically motivated bombings (oh, the bombings!).
We spent an hour talking with Matt Christman from Chapo Trap House about how Florida became what it is today, and, as a conservative political project, what it portends for the U.S. at-large.
You can follow Matt on Twitter @cushbomb and you can find Chapo Trap House at www.chapotraphouse.com. The Chapo boys are coming to Fort Lauderdale’s REVOLUTION on Oct. 30, their first and probably only live show in Florida, so get tickets here.
