Hundreds of followers of the white nationalist movement came to Charlottesville over the weekend to protest the planned removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. The City Council voted to remove it from a park whose name they changed from Lee Park to Emancipation Park.

What started as a protest against removal of a confederate symbol ended with clashes between fascist groups and anti-fascist protesters that ultimately ended in murder. Where do we go from here?

Also this hour: Dishwashers are getting more respect in famous restaurants these day, which is a big deal in a nation that doesn't tend to value the low-paid workers that keep the economy humming. 

Lastly, we take your calls.

GUESTS:

  • Chris Murphy - U.S. Senator (D) from Connecticut
  • Tom Sietsema - Food critic for the Washington Post
