Maine Beacon: Maine Republicans Have Created the Most Absurd Death Cult in History

With the backing (but not always the presence) of Republican lawmakers and candidates for federal office, a group of protesters rallied against public health measures in Augusta on Monday, echoing similar protests across the country. Why are they putting their own and others’ lives at risk, how much of public opinion do they represent and how far has the Republican Party descended into conspiracy theory? Esther, Ben and Mike discuss.

Plus: Tamara Hunt of Maine Student Action joins to discuss a student coronavirus response petition to Maine’s colleges and universities.
