“There is a moral and spiritual enslavement that occurs in MAGA.”—Rich Logis, Leaving MAGA
After RadPod’s groundbreaking interview with Rich Logis — a two-time Trump supporter who is now helping to lead the charge on leaving Maga — I had a few more questions for him. In Ep73 of the Bette Dangerous Podcast, we discuss the impact of Russian interference on shaping MAGA, why MAGA is immune to facts, and how we form unlikely alliances to defeat Trumpism in 2024. Nothing is for certain, but uniting in defense of democracy is the bravest thing we can do.
Before listening, be sure to read the print version or listen to video of RadPod’s extensive interview with him to understand his backstory. You can find both here:
I am excited that Bette Dangerous community members will have the opportunity to meeting Logis on January 7, at 4 pm PT at our Founder’s Day/Speakeasy hybrid 2024 kickoff — look for an invite to register for that event this week.
If you’re not yet a member of Bette Dangerous, please take advantage of my birthday sale — which offers half-off an annual membership for the first year.
Please share with your networks and any MAGA family or friends who are showing signs of being ‘truth curious’ or those who are struggling to leave.
As Logis tells us, don’t give up on anyone. Never lose hope.
“I will chase MAGA and Trump into the gates of hell if I have to,” said Logis.
