Charles I, Monarchy and Mobs, 1640’s Fake News and War on Christmas w/ Leanda de Lisle, Author of The White King

Charles I of England was executed after losing the English Civil War to Oliver Cromwell and the Parliamentary Forces. We take a look at his struggle with author Leanda de Lisle.  In her book, The White King, she portrays King Charles I as a defender of the law and notes the mob-like and fanatical actions of the King’s opponents.

We also compare events of the 1640’s, including Fake News and Wars on Christmas, to the politics today.
