    Henry Giroux, McMaster Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest

Widely published cultural critic Henry Giroux is available to discuss Donald Trump’s seemingly unstoppable march to the White House and why he continues to advance, despite increasingly outrageous behaviour.

“There is a disturbing totalitarian message in his call to ‘make America great again’ by any means necessary,” says Giroux, who himself grew up in the U.S.

“The degree to which Trump expresses his support of violence, racism and the violation of civil liberties, visibly and without apology, is unprecedented in recent national political races. But the ideas he espouses have always been present under the surface of US politics, which is perhaps why the public and media on the whole seem unperturbed,” he says. 

Giroux, who holds the McMaster Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest, is set to publish a new book entitled America at War with Itself. He is available at girouxh@mcmaster.ca and 905-525-9140, ext. 26551.
