Bill Smaldone: History of Social Democratic Party - Part 1

program date: 
Mon, 08/20/2012

Bill Resnick and Bill Smaldone start a two-part conversion about the German Social Democratic party in the 19th and 20th Centuries. Smaldone lays out the historical context of the consolidating and industrializing German state, then explains how the Social Democrats emerged as a parliamentary movement and became a civic movement. Most exciting is how the Social Democrats was organizing the working-class of Germany in the late 19th Century by creating alternative cultural and social institutions that until then only middle-class really had. The vision they had was akin to 20th century socialist schemes of dual-power. Part two will be aired next week.

In San Francisco, new ads on several MUNI buses, funded by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, read: "In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man.  Support Israel, defeat Jihad."

The city has heard a public outcry to the ads, with citizens and advocacy groups deeming the ads inflammatory, Islamophobic, and racist.

KBOO's Jenn Chavez spoke with Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations, for more on this story.
