On the episode of Acton Line, Andrew Klavan, award winning novelist, screenwriter, and regular host at the Daily Wire, joins the show to talk about the new Netflix documentary, “Knock Down the House.” The new political documentary follows four far left-leaning women during their run for congress in 2018, eventually leading up to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional win. Klavan explains the ideas under girding the movie and why he defines it as propaganda. After that, Acton’s co-founder and president, Rev. Robert Sirico, addresses religion on the left and lays out the connections between religion and liberty.
