"Origins think archbishop romero as being the expression of liberation theology as profound solidarity with the poor in on a religious assertion that christ jesus had a preferential option for the poor as head christianity that the entire proposition of christianity was one in which Poor folks were their experience with the very center of the story. And should remain matt. And that the contention that has political implications for everybody who professes christianity incomes incomes of justice making amber means with which they pursued justice. So that's the contention liberation theology but started in latin america as i say a really kind of grassroots movement but proliferated into feminist liberation theologies black liberation theologies and other sort of identity based liberation theologies over the course of the seventies eighties and nineties and beyond as we learned how to apply the methodologies in the to center the experiences of other marginalized groups in the practice of theology. Ising essentially. it's feminist. Theology is one of those offshoots when i consider the early feminist theologians to be my among my greatest teachers as well as james cone and other black liberation theologians united states. However it's what's interesting to me anyway. That i'm not christian and never was right so it was something about the what would they call us terminated. It's it's it's a. It's an interpretive man's of liberation theology that i overlaid and other parts of my life a way of understanding the world it's part political analysis part social justice commitment. It's a cohesive way of looking at the world and how it works and how it should work is really what liberation theology has given the in my life and it doesn't require a christian on depending how does one go through divinity school which i in my ninety. I seem to be a christian faculty and not be christian. Do you have to be very quiet or are you there saying. I'm not just well. Certainly there may be among your listeners. Folks who would say that A christian has no business going to a christian school which indeed i did but i mean feel logical..

"I really saw you know or When archbishop romero was killed in solid where think i'm the only american journalists that actually saw his body afterwards And and you know it. I think repress it And in it may be comes back at some other time but there are lots of people now in the journalism. World did study. this are concerned about it. because i'm trying to think of what's the dart i guess it's the institute that has major research on the ptsd journalists suffer from their jones I think the way. I would answer that question. You have to be aware. It's a possibility and is something's disturbing to you. You seek help us to brandon kaku. Who is a student at stony brook university asked what are some reliable methods of fact checking in today's world bec was back to this misinformation and disinformation will believe nothing you find on the internet. That's what i would say. Seek out your own sources on it and in Just because something's written in some format or even a video doesn't mean it actually happened that way So it's there's a lot of lots of reporting you have to do on those things You know people have gotten more and more comfortable with wikipedia But as you know we compete is edited by a lot of people the identities of which we don't know so i would just say you have to be skeptical. Have to always be skeptical and and look for reliable sources in the balance between printing reporting the story before checking. you know. there's been a lot of the rush to get the first one to print it or to to announce the news and then have to roll it back because you know checked on it and found out some pieces were not true. What's the balance there. Well i think The way i look at it is and i think of myself as a digital first journalists so i do like to be first on things. I like to post quickly when we've learned something but the way i balanced that is that in that i take. I try to make sure we're only reporting that which we know And then we're going to build out one of the other great things about the internet. Is you post three paragraphs well that can become thirty paragraphs you have time to report. At that point you get credit for For having gotten the basic information first and then you get to flesh it out I'm i'm always hopeful that we don't discovering the fleshing it out the lead paragraph was wrong But but here again. That's that's Trying to always be aware that you don't want report something you you don't know or if you haven't confirmed that's hard. I think it's violated a lot in in on the internet People move too quickly. I'm trying to remember. There was a story the other day. the other week now i think everybody reported it and it turned out not to be true. And you wonder. How is that possible. That all these news outlets Went with the same supposed fact that turned out not to be the case and part of that is the we just relied on one source and it turned out to be accurate But you know that's that's a good thing to be cautioned. I i do think in the in the current era where we're competing with one another to to for people's eyeballs on the web and for google to search for our story or to find our story in the surge That you want to be. I being i you know thirty seconds can be the difference between nobody reading your story and thirty thousand people reading your story. So that's a real thing to be worried about But you know if you make mistakes too often people will not click on your stories either So you just limit yourself in that. I go to the stuff you really know And and and then you build it at a later rate so we have two questions. In in the chat that are related for molly sherman again at mcdaniel college emmanuel at the senior online editor of the middlebury campus at middlebury college. So molly assets in an era when many considered to be crisis of truth. How do we enhance our credibility as journalists news source entities an individual articles and emmanuel piggybacks. On that how can we reduce barriers to entering journalism. That writers for more marginalized backgrounds may face It seems that people with important perspective or the diverse perspectives are often absent in the news room. Which often Also influences what we choose to report on the those are. Those are both difficult questions. i think In terms of the big question about marginalized voices I think sink combine on all of us to recognize that there may be perspectives. That you're not aware of or sources that are getting less attention And and i think that is a conscious effort. You have to make say who hasn't been spoken to on this subject. Who may have an opinion. It's worth reporting or inexperience or perspective. That is a That is something you have to do deliberately with every story. You're editors should help you with that. You should help reporters who Are reporting to you with that An it should just be part of your conscious thought process as you look at a story is who are we not talking to. Who has a dog in this fight. and and That's also you know not playing necessarily choose. Receive the interests of your audience to be in. This goes back to something. I was saying earlier. I think Readers are smart people and viewers for that matter. They're smart people And they will be intrigued. Interested open to a perspective that perhaps is different from their's is long as you present it in in a in an open and thoughtful way That's just..

hearing is not is giving is different you know it's not about wholeness is about dealing with this particular illness but in the healing in in the wholeness and health is global installed I realized well ID and understand asking if I understand now but I knew that I didn't want to be a doctor they can go people that wear notebook how to take care of themselves and so you have to help them to put up with life an old man them in a sense hi so that's why I went to see all of your actual side instead of just the physical but mostly because I wanted to know how going to church having all the resources he has eight those who work for healing and for wellness but a lot of time create a lot of the illness participates with that for example a home the churches were very much involved in maintaining a system that has not been about affirmative of life of people in clinic and so that's why I went but once I got my training I wasn't going to really gonna work for the church and I was in

confused when we think that we are bodies the head with a soul or spirit but we're spirit having experience I think on it being so returning to the El Salvador issue other probably a lot of people who don't really know what happened in the south south or why there was a war could you just say briefly what the situation was and and how the archbishop Romero what his position was with respect to that so why he was killed on quite a few he was assassinated well you know this is a story that is Donald three of my going fifty story of everybody's country in a sense you know all of Latin America all of the very very end all of Africa or love esse and many of the countries in Europe even have that kind of story not necessarily us going to assign missions you know where people are in for stolen you know colonialism is a means of saying you are a means by which we get quite a few are usually for all women are going on I still really for the other in the colonies there is the center and there's

"And because in the course of exploring Reagan's thinking and view and world view and all of these issues I ran into this huge amount of information are Reagan's faith that I did not expect to see and friends said to me that's the book you need the right okay stop right write a book on Reagan's faith so gonna Ronald Reagan came first and then the crusader came later but that's a little bit a little bit of my story mark for me they'll thank you how to get the Grove city so I at at American University I was there from ninety one to ninety three and I noticed Grove City College and I knew that it was a conservative college I had I had sort of I become a conservative at that point I guess that's another long story that I it knew what they were doing and I thought to myself boy I'd love to teach there that's the place where I'd love to teach I've been living here in Washington but love to go back home to western PA I was born in Pittsburgh and you know you can't take the Pittsburgh Steelers fan and all that stuff out of the boy from Pittsburgh so I wanted to get back to that area my wife and I we we we got married when in in DC and and may nineteen ninety three actually got married at our at our college chapel Hines chapel on the campus of the university of Pittsburgh I met her at the Pitt news she was a copy editor I was the editorial page editor and I loved working in DC yeah it's the greatest place to work but I I I I didn't like the hectic lifestyle we didn't want to raise kids here so we both said let's apply back to our alma mater and I would apply to the PhD program and and in the graduate school of public international affairs gets to be a she applied to the master's program in exercise physiology we both got accepted we said let's go so we we went there I got my PhD from university of Pittsburgh I think in ninety seven went through the program quick and much quicker than my undergrad my undergrad took six years because I transferred a number of times change majors worked so many hours a week and the I've talked to Robert Morris college which is now Robert you Morris university in Pittsburgh while I was in graduate school and then applied to not very many people but very maybe they're not very many places but there is an opening at Grove City College and they hired me and does it is gross city affiliated so it is some people think it has an affiliation with Presbyterian church USA it does not it it's probably groceries very Presbyterian I mean you could stand by the what's called the rainbow bridge I campus and you've got a good enough form you could have three Presbyterian churches two of them are former PC USA tower church in these man and then the other next the east main as an OPC orthodox Presbyterian church the Grove city is the faculty is pretty mixed mostly mostly Protestant probably ninety percent I'm actually Roman Catholic the the student body is I'd say if there is the we probably get more of our students now are non denominational independent evangelical churches hi I don't know that for a fact we have to go through the data but I think that's right the faculty is a little bit summer Anglican some are Presbyterian some of them are Presbyterian Calvin us there like I said there's a few of us who are who are Catholic so the faculty no particular specific denomination famous Supreme Court case famous Supreme Court is nineteen eighty four yeah Grove City College and we went all the way the Supreme Court and we lost people think the wheel was a case we we lost well it it had to do with with title nine and government funding it's it's it's a long story it's complicated but the we eventually decided and but we we've never discriminated against women that's complete nonsense and a smear of the college we had been admitting women in larger numbers than almost any college certainly in western Pennsylvania for a long long time but we we we didn't want to abide by the massive stack of government regulations which we felt intruded on our freedom to operate freely as a as a college as university so we got to the point where we decided that we would simply have to not take any government money federal state at any level and our students that come to grow city and be alone to come here do it through a privatized student loan program to PNC bank and that's that's how we manage to survive and we have quite a money magazine we're list of one of the best buys in higher education our tuition about twenty five thousand twenty six thousand dollars a year so we've done an incredible job of keeping costs down without taking any government money that's similar to the hill stills of Croats right bills they'll as well everyone thinks that Hillsdale it was it was their court case a wasn't was our court case so we we were first and there are number colleges now I think that don't take government money but it can't be more than a handful we were we were first we are

boy bought into the Cold War line and sinker I was actually serving as an infantryman in the US army when you when we invaded Panama I didn't take part in the invasion but I was absolutely horrified at the deaths of hundreds of innocent people and what I consider to be just a a completely meaningless invasion as recently said that capitalism is like a pile of garbage I actually received first communion when it was actually confirmed in the church very recently based on the pope's comments and also the history of liberation theology Michael Moore's film capitalism a love story the history

a Roman Catholic and by my faith in forms my my it might view of politics and conservative second I guess Republican next although I don't consider party affiliation very important if you if you came forward with a a good conservative Democrat for president versus a liberal Republican I vote for the Democrat but I know I don't support Ayn Rand I don't know why I don't know where you're getting that I I would is liberation theology yeah liberation theology became a a I'm Dave a form of Latin Latin American base the allergies prime primarily in Latin America the Jesuits really push it and the in the seventies and nineteen eighties Maliki Martin wrote a book on the Jesuits in the nineteen eighties which lay this out in in great detail in battle a very important current pope pope Francis Tuesday Jesuits has said quote Marxism is wrong and I use I use that quote a lot in presentations so he completely rejects that as well as he as he like wise rejects I guess when you probably call lies a faire capitalism so there's a much more integrated view on that John Paul the second as well if you read the sent a cease to move on if you read any of his different encyclicals go back to a rare Navarra by Leo the thirteenth read while there with the writings of Pius the tenth Pius eleven Pius the twelfth the Vinny Redemptorists which was published in eighteen thirty seven by it by pope Pius the eleventh but you see the Catholic Church has has a has a very balanced view on in the the the dangers of not only best of collectivism but but excessive free market capitalism as well but I don't support Ayn Rand at all I know we're getting that do it speaking of the pope's your newest book is the divine plan we want to show some video you'll know what it is and you can explain it after sure Ronald Reagan was shot on March thirtieth nineteen eighty one and pope John Paul the second was shot just six weeks later god did have a preference for the pope and the Reagan they were preserved through this offering for high profits I don't think you understand either one of them without understanding that so they finally come together in June seventh nineteen eighty two with the Vatican to do some serious examination about what god has in store for them now rating of pope John Paul the second sure often we share these justice expansion of freedom people an alternative world working in the realm of the human spirit my call law family friendship and much more one could be the Lynch path to take down the entire Soviet time Reagan said to my policy in the Cold War is very simple this is not about politics is ridiculous because power is about power the attempt to win the Cold War to bring about the Soviet collapse started in that started is that communism would be over there were

So my my parents they had a record player when I was little, you know, I'm dating myself a little bit, but they had this record player, and they they used it all the time until I broke it, and I will, but one of the first records that I ever listened to was Cheech and Chong, and it's the one their later albums. I think it was like one thousand nine hundred five. Get outta my room. Maybe and in that blew me away. So right there I saw my parents listening to this and laughing, and it's music, and it's comedy. And it's kind of it felt a head of its time felt like all comedy sketch album. You know, it's pretty high concept because they really they meshed in their Chicano identity with them, a very rock and roll aesthetic, you know, and so it transcended sort of a niche ethnic take on the world Cheech and Chong is something that anybody could it's long as you're smoking weed anybody could. I was I was. Yeah. Well, yeah. But. So many questions but number one it's like I've actually listened to teach and John both under. And not. Yeah. And it holes and actually think the comedy now like listening to it. It's really it's really good. Like, it's almost like if they came out now, they would be I it's just so good. I just think it's really good. Yeah. I mean, they're multiethnic. They were counterculture. The first track on that is born in east LA, and they made a movie about it, which is very difficult to find or stream you've actually got like by DVD of it. Yeah. But the idea that you know, he is a Chicano from east LA and the satire there in the song is is or the irony is that he is still seen as an emigrant. No matter what he's always an outsider. Right. So before we keep going like, what did your parents do when you broke their record player? Oh, man. I think we DC was a high crime area, we grew up with very little music. I broke the record player. And then I'd say every other year our car, which was a navy blue Nissan stanza would get broken into. And they steal the they would steal the tape deck, but they would leave my dad's tapes because they didn't want his Carlos Santana tape. Get the Carlos Santanas. But you were I mean growing up in in the in the DMV say, but you grew up in the district as they say. Yeah, you there were a lot of chicanos there. No. It was very difficult to get a good taco. I'd say honestly that I spent but I was by coastal my family is all in California and in Utah and Washington state. So in Texas, so I would go out there, and I would I would experience culture there, and then culture in in DC, I had a very inner city east coast upbringing. But I I think it gave me a broader perspective to see both both sides of the country. Okay. My answer question. No. It's just like my mind is racing with you. You have answer my question. I'm just trying to see like leaving DC is like this. You know? Well, like attitude. East code. Utah. I'm not going to Texas. And then you're like, wow. This place is awesome. Did you owe one hundred percent? So there's a couple of things. My father has what I call like he's got like a taco radar and wherever we go in the country and even the world he'll be like Maho me hope there's a really great Mexican a taco stand down the street over here. Like, I'm like where did you find that out? He's like he talked to a cabdriver. But after we'd landed and. Agent. Like is like, it's awesome. Yeah. So he always made a point of highlighting in pointing out where the Mexican community was wherever we were at. I remember one summer I was out and I had a job in the Hamptons. Actually, I was I was a waiter in east Hampton, and he came to visit. And he was like me ho check this out, man. We gotta go to this this place. They got great ball Sola, and we drove past all of the lobster, Lafayette, all huts, and we found this little shack where all of the Mexican gardeners and construction workers and everybody who who actually works out in the Hamptons where they were eating, and then we went there, and he talked to everybody. So he always had this way of of keeping me in touch with with the community and showing me where to look and that and and even shows in your comedy. I mean, the fact that you're so your political your social your cultural. You haven't forgotten. What you come from like, I is that all what you do when you right? When you write you comedy when you when you go up onset. Yeah. I mean, I think I was raised with. Lot of with with with an implicit social Justice component to my everything. I did my my my mother was a 'immigration lawyer. And we would we would constantly have people over to the house from all over the world. And so that was all part of your upbringing the. Yeah, you were very aware of of sort of the migration issue like growing up as as a kid. That's right. And then traveling around the country. You know, you see the roots of the let's see no or Hispanic or intas routes every there, I you know, I took a road trip, and I went to Santa Fe, and I had the privilege of being in Santa Fe when they were celebrating their four hundred year anniversary. And you know, it just think about that. When the United States had its bicentennial in nineteen seventy six, and you have this city that's part of the United States that's been around for four hundred years and it dates any all of our founding fathers by two hundred if predates yet Hamilton and everyone, but listen, speaking of immigration, one of my. Favorite one of my favorite tracks share on on the comedy album is I've seen you do this you posted on your Facebook. And I really like it and it's called ice. Let's listen, I, yes, please, immigration and customs enforcement. They're always in the news.

"You were down at the border, you're working with organizations. So I guess I'm still wanting to get at this idea of solidarity. So you're talking now about the solidarity that that created the caravan van that this is actually a Revolutionary Movement. It's not just, you know, people that are tattered, you know, kind of tattered and wandering, you know, in need a place to go in our desperate. It's intentional. It's it's organized. It's gotta politics that's being played out super compelling to think about, but then there's another layer of that solidarity in in that you went down there you were down at the border talk about a little bit for us about what kind of what's happening in that. And what you witnessed when you were down there in terms of people showing up for this crisis. Sure. I'm so I went with the new sanctuary coalition of New York who organized a forty days and forty. Nights. Caravan in the desert presence in desert at the border, which is obvious, you know, really redolent with biblical allusions. Right. So that's the new sanctuary movement. And it's important to say that there are very conscious way, of course, drying on the prior sanctuary movement of the nineteen eighties, which was predominantly it. Started in churches migrated to many different faiths communities into secular communities. It was an indigenous in Indian town, Florida digits nation. Indigenous folks worked for the mohawk nation of New York became a sanctuary community Jesse Jackson's push community in in Chicago became a sanctuary community. But this idea that and I think it's important to say that I see sanctuary as happening where politics stops functioning. So in the nineteen eighties. And in the present time, the the move of people who needed to claim asylum to come to America and claimed their internationally certified right to asylum was blocked by politics. So you know in the mentioning as you have about three percent of El and asking Chris Highland receiving it otherwise being treated like illegal undocumented migrants right now, you have this kind of crazy situation where everyone who comes to the border to ask her asylum. Immediately gets detained in the detention center. Many of them are held in or not allowed to cross the border with a new remain in Mexico policy, which was implemented in January after which is you can't even cross to ask you to San Mexico to your case gets hurt. And it's important say that Jefferson Beauregard sessions attorney general before he left do rational, the immigration judge personnel. So forty people a day are getting across. They're hearing. In two or three or four cases a day. There are eight thousand people just in Tijuana. So this is a crisis so sanctuary in the nineteen eighties and now comes in. When essentially our politics aren't functioning with other forms of solidarity. Like asylum is supposed to be is premised on an idea of international solidarity that comes out of the post nineteen forty five human rights United Nations, High commission on refugees moment, but it is not working at a stink deliberately disabled. So the new sanctuary coalition organized this caravan to meet the caravans, which is premised on a sanctuary movement idea that also well, one of its sources is Central America does idea of accompaniment, right? That people like me people who have immense privilege who have documents who have white skin privilege show with people who don't have access to those things. And witness and also, you know, we act as resources we talked to the people. But also, we show it's a visual politics to the regimes that are operative the Mexican immigration service and the department of homeland security of the United States that these are not isolated people that that we are with them that we, you know, it's not like, you know, asylum seekers are undocumented people are different from the rest of the human community. So it's sort of like, we're having a another form of this this function of solidarity just as the migrants joined together to walk north and hold hands when they cross rivers because it's easier not to drown. If you're if you're a human chain, we're offering the sexual caravan is offering working to meet you and continue that process, and it's important. You said that there's other organizations, but the sanctuary care then was a very short lived forty days in at the border. But there are other organizations like ultra lotto, Hispanic. A lot in the past week because it's it's become clear that the United States is keeping a database of activists. Our allow is is stationed in in in Tijuana. They they're doing legal advocacy and much the same kind of advocacy for asylum-seekers. There are a lot of groups. I've worked with another group border angel. It's based in San Diego that delivers resources, you know, clothing and other donating things to all the shelters and to wanna and also operates a post tension shelter in San Diego. So when people get out of detention, they have somewhere to go and there's help in networking with relatives and friends and then just figuring out what your license Quincy like. So there's a lot of organizations during that work, which is broadly sort of our. Whatever North American counterpoint to the solidarity being practice in the caravans, that's really powerful in in your in your Jewish currents piece. You talk about this idea of I think it's called on accompaniment, which is Google readily, Google Google, and I loved that you quoted Salvadoran archbishop us her Romero there talking about the US back civil war in El Salvador, when he said what the campesinos are doing is only Justin you should always be at their side with the national guard is likely to do as unjust if they attack you should be there next to the campesinos accompaniment them take the same risks. They do. And and you know, I really appreciate what you say is it's sanctuaries hap- happens when politics stops functioning. So what you're talking about is when you know, sort of national politics stop functioning in the way that they should. International politics. Stop functioning the way that they should I wanna come back to that. But I also want to kind of underline or or invite you to say more about a politics that's emerging because of this because I think that that there's something really really compelling about this idea of holding hands or the forty days and forty nights of of people coming together and making a new kind of politics on the ground, and you Matt were you able to meet people who were actually in the sanctuary caravan when you were down there did you at the border. Did you, you know, do you have any kind of first person insights on sort of what they were experiencing, and what that was because I can't even imagine do you know, what what they're going through especially with all the roadblocks at their that are getting thrown new new roadblocks thrown at them all the time. Yeah. So I I should preface by segments better is really rudimentry. So yes, I I was able to make people in an unsurprisingly. I had the most I was able to converse most deeply with people who are also speaking in Spanish as a second language because I'm working on it. So, but I did get to meet people. And and I think the first day I was there. I went to one of the big Kemp's. That's now close down by a towel, which is a former nightclub, and it was just this open arena. And I'm telling you this because it's hearsay because we weren't allowed into the refugee camp there were guards outside the camp. But what I heard about people were basically camping out in the muddy stadium like arena. So I drove there with in a caravan before angels, we have these cars that were stuffed with donations from America. We kind of flew down from San Diego wanna with these cars that were full of clothes and diapers and bedding. And we we were connected with one of the organizers of the of the caravan at towel Salvadoran guy who came out and met us, and what was really interesting to me. And really moving to me is we had these cars full of things that people really needed. Right. So people have walked with what they could carry and what they could carry was up in their children. Right. I met a woman who had a baby on the way. So we're not talking about like, you know, you're gonna move your furniture, even take clothing for all possible weather that you could make we're talking about people arriving with backpacks like most of us carry in our daily lives that are full of things, you know, they're they're that Pablo's on their hips or elders. You know, so you're you're don't have a lot of stuff. So a group of women approached me, and what pointing to my shoes. Sort. Of course, I'm like, what are you? What what do you mean about issues, and none of my shoes? So there's tremendous as people knew we were there. They sort of came out of where they were being kept where we were not allowed to enter and came out into the side street where we were parked and those an incredible sense of discipline and respect I was really struck by this because I had a sense from them. They were all closed, right? And but that they had a lot of needs. We had a car full of things, and they waited really patiently. Well, Victor and a couple of other folks sorted through the mind up people were assigned. I have no idea how this happened like you get the neck pillow. You get the parka. You get the diapers. And some of that is obvious. But it really isn't quite who needs the neck pillow more than someone else with incredible amounts of patients and respect. And I think that's speaks to this this self organization and kind of discipline like if we're going to survive, we left we had the car open wheel had our person in the car. We were standing around talking to people nobody made any diets for anything including and this is sort of moving and might of what's going on our passports, which the two women driving driving their passports on the front seat. You know? And like, I think if you listen to the official rhetoric about that on a desperate people, and blah, blah, blah. You would take like the last thing you do is your passport in an open car inside of forty of these people, but nobody much as open the car. So I went back into the car a couple of times to get things, you know, to look for things where people are getting fed up my purse and people would like wait patiently. Right. And like, I think that's only surprising in light of how horrible the rhetoric about. These people is on the other hand. I think it's surprising in light of the kind of needs. They're experiencing so. The other day that I spent a lot of time if migrants was I got to do accompaniment, which is what I see as the new sanctuary coalition signal contribution. And as you point out this comes from a lot of struggle sources archbishop Romero, I've found evidence of accompaniment in the abolition..

There's no problem down there. Yeah. The problem is just not at the border. It's nationwide get across the border and they infiltrate every city in the United States, and they take graphics everywhere and the voter rolls in every voting district gets cage. That's why we're getting it up with all these liberals, get elected. Well, that's the part that is a part of it. I mean, look there's a there's a number of layers here. Okay. Number one. The main. The main main problem is is the fact that you have criminals. Taking advantage of these networks to come into the United States when somebody gets sanctuary in California. They don't necessarily stay in California. Then go anywhere they want. They go to Arizona, then go to Vegas, go in a million different directions. That's that's the problem. John in San Diego. Welcome to the show. I've had I've had the same trick. I've had the same correct that these people are making from Honduras or wherever in Central America. I did it in nineteen eighty five from San Diego all the way down to the tip of South America and back and I saw firsthand American aid for the people on the trains. I did it all over land. I didn't do any flights except one from Panama City to Cartagena Colombia. The the trains carry a flower and all kinds of goods, which the American symbol on them. And they say things like gift of United States not to be sold, and it has American shield on it. And that's the stars and the top and garage shield, right? Right. And the stripes on the bottom. Yeah. And so I encountered a lot of very nice good people and some very very dangerous people. And what I was most affected by was people like what the work that archbishop Romero. Didn't I l Salvador, right? We spoke. He spoke. For the poor. That it should be at the expense of the wealthy because he had made their wealth off of others. Yeah. Yeah. And he felt that they should give back some and he was murdered. Yeah. I mean, this is what happens you shake shake it up like that. And that does happen in many of these countries do not are not governed aggressively by the rule of law and speaking of one of those countries, it's Iran. Iran is holding an American Iran is holding a US navy veteran a man who has been missing since July first American detained overseas during the Trump administration's being held in Iran, the Iranian foreign ministry last night acknowledged that it had Michael white US navy veteran in the northeastern city of Mashhad lot of questions remain as to why he's being detained. How long he's been imprisoned. How did he get a visa to go to Iran? Iran is ratcheting up the tensions between the US in Tehran. He is alive. According to his mother. It means the US will aim to bring him home, which will be a big challenge for the president. Iran will not succumb easily. You can you can imagine what's going to happen. They're they're trying to send a message to stick it to the United States. And you're probably asking the the first question that came into your mind was the first question that came into my mind, what the hell are you doing in Iran, given how hot things are? This is a forty six year old native of I b. His mother only learned of her son's whereabouts three weeks ago. It's been missing since he didn't board a flight home in July. It's likely that Iran detained the forty six year old native of imperial beach around this time, he joins three other Americans to of Iranian descent. And of course, one American Robert Levinson who's been held neuron for more than a decade. Man. This is exactly what they did in the eighties. And they're doing it again, man, they are doing it.

We tried to make an unspoilt there because often if you make that point is all say, how dare you compare these two entities. We don't have laws that say that in Israelis cannot sit in the same benches. For instance, indeed we don't, but that's why distinction was made between petty apartheid and grand apartheid. Not those aspects of apartheid, the benches separate beaches and so on. So forth. And I'm not talking here about restrictions on movement, but to focus on the issue of the policies, the legal systems and of course voting rights. You also wrote, and that's what are the Palestinians supposed to do if they dare demonstrate its popular terror, if they call for sanctions, it's economic terror. If they pursue legal means judicial terror, if they turn to the United Nations, it's diplomatic terror. It turns out anything Palestinian does besides getting up in the morning and saying, thank you rice. Thank you. Master is terror. The this has become so teen in Israel. This has become so normalized after fifty years that people have difficulty even accepting that basic right that people live under oppression, have the right to reject that reality and any avenue that put a seasons, try is met with one firm or another on of condemnation. But for Israel, this spot of a broader agenda. The agenda is not only to overcome, but a stinian a position to their oppression, but also to silence Israel his and to science international community. So it goes further right is an Israeli is against key pation. She or he must be traitors. If international is speaking or acting against the Kapatid's, they must be anti-semites right at him saying that a lot of cynicism, but I, but this is no laughing matter. This is actually quite an effective silencing. Mechanism is deploying continuously all over the world. You know this week the pope sainted, archbishop cart, archbishop Romero, Oscar Romero Salvador, who is assassinated in one thousand nine hundred eighty. The last speech she gave before he was gunned down was heard throughout l. Salvador on the radio, and he ordered the soldiers. He beseeched them. He pled with them to put down their arms to defy orders. He said, stop the repression in April your group, but sell them called on Israel. Soldiers to refuse orders to shoot unarmed protesters. Did they heat you. We pushed ads. This is actually also a legal responsibility, motor sponsor ability. Not only I think from like any decent person, but also to Israelis on us if Acilia receives flagrantly illegal command his duty-bound not to follow that commanded commands that order soldiers to fire unarmed, protesters that are not endangering anyone from a distance. These are flagrantly legal. They should not have been given the responsibility for that is with the country's leadership with the prime minister defense minister chief of staff, and that's the responsibility begins. That's the brunt of responsibility is. But if such orders are given soldiers, duty-bound not to follow such orders. I wanted to tear into an emergency room doctor who he interviewed. He's a Canadian doctor and he went to Gaza to help Palestinians, the Palestinian Canadian doctor Tareq Lou Bonnie who was shocked by his Rayleigh forces in both legs while he was helping treat Palestinians injured by Israel forces during the nonviolent great marcher for turn. It was may fourteenth. It was a Monday. I asked doctor Levin. This is right after he was shot. If he felt he was targeted as a doctor. I don't know the answer to that. I don't know what's what orders they received or what was in their heads. So I can't tell you if we were deliberately targeted what I can tell you is the things that I do know in the six weeks of the March. There were no paramedic casualties. And in one day nineteen, paramedics eighteen wounded plus one killed and myself were all injured. So we're all shot with light ammunition. We were all Moussa was actually in a rescue at the time, but everybody else I talked to was like me. We were away during allow without smoke without any chaos at all. And we were targeted and we were rather hit by live ammunition most of us in the lower limbs. So that was Dr Turk. Lou Bonnie the Canadian Palestinian doctor. We spoke to him just after he was shot the man. He was talking about paramedic, moose. Boo, has Sonning with shot and killed by his rarely forces. He was shot in the chest. Dr Liu, Bonnie, tweeted a photo captioned. A haunting photo Friday may eleventh left Muhammed mcdaddy shot in the right ankle has son Abu Saadeh Tareq Lou Bonnie shot and left leg and right knee Mamane Silmi Yousef among Luke Mussa Hocine shot in the thoroughness and killed volunteer. Unknown photographer shot and wounded. He said, this was a photo they just taken so they could have for their scrapbooks. Talk about this guy formation also about additional incidents, invite viewers to go to the website and read the more data and then assistant under strategy, but we're going to add is that one can be rest assured that in all likelihood, no one is going to be held accountable to any of these killings. Israel has lubricate will. Nubrik, aided, whitewashing mechanism that doesn't really investigate it performs what looks investigation to push against international illegal authority. Sometimes it will take a very long time until they will close the case sometimes short time, but based on our data analysis more than a decade of working on such issues both in the West Bank and in Gaza more than ninety seven percent of the time. No one will be held accountable. Let me ask you about the criticism that you faced in Israel. Two years ago, our guest guy allowed spoke first before the United Nations Security council, the Israeli government threatened to revoke his citizenship. He was then board from speaking at Isreaeli schools, then this is Israel embassador to the United Nations. Danny denounce speaking yesterday Moya. You are a citizen of the state of Israel serves our enemies using against us. Idea, soldiers protect you come here and smear them shame on you. Shame on you. You collaborator shame on you. You collaborated the Israeli ambassador to the UN said guy response. He said in the grew, no one could understand that in real time at the Security Council chamber. And of course he knew that he was talking to in his early audience back home when he was saying that twenty seconds before that he was speaking English at from the same very seat celebrating he's very democracy because, hey, we have resumes, Asians has sent him to get to present before the Security Council. It's a perfect example of is really hypocrisy at its worst in the sense that the mock Racine is reduced to a product for expert. That's what we celebrate abroad. The only democracy in the Middle East, but at home going after the traders trying to silence position to the. Depiction both things at the same time by this point where the used to having both of these voices. But usually you'll be the prime minister and then someone else speaking five days later somewhere else, right? But now the same person would in less than a minute, do democracy in English collaborator in Hebrew. Absolutely amazing to have like a deep understanding of how cynical that is. That's all you needed to look at. Why about the Trump administration? Has it changed what's happening on the ground in Israel and the territories? What about the Trump administration's relationship? President Trump, Jared, Kushner's relationship with prime minister. Netanyahu prime minister Netanyahu is in her circle is increasingly being arrested at the latest charges brought against his own wife, moving in on Benjamin Netanyahu himself, and we see the, you know something similar happening in the United States with investigation of President Trump, but what's happening to overcome. Credits Trump within the, oh, they haven't begun this. They have both inherited the sorority is begun many years before that in Israel by governments left right and center that were part of the occupation project. I don't want to shy away from history dot context. At the same time, of course, Trump is making everything much worse in the sense in Israel. But like this government that not only they have the green light from the White House, basically the way with almost anything they want to do. But in fact that what they have here is you know, from their perspective concern limited time window before -tunities in which to advance Israel's occupation project with no fear of consequences from the US with no fear of anything happening to Security Council because of the American veto.

War and El Salvador on Sunday pope Francis made Romero a Saint along with Pope Paul, the sixth and five others wearing the blood-stained rope belt that Romero war when he was assassinated. Pope Francis who's originally from Argentina, which praising Romero for just regarding his own life to be close to the poor and to his people. Human. It is wonderful that together with Pope Paul, the sixth and the other new saints. Today, there's archbishop Romero who left the security of the world, even his own safety in order to give his life according to the gospel, close to the poor to his people with heart drawn to Jesus and his brothers and sisters only weeks before has assassination archbishop Romero in a letter to president. Jimmy Carter calling him not to provide military aid to the right wing Salvadoran military government. Then in the archbishop's final, a now famous sermon. He made a direct appeal to Salvadoran soldiers to lay down their weapons. In his name in the name of our tormented. People who've suffered so much and whose laments cry out to heaven. I am luring.

The case for more we're joined by Matt is in Brant human rights lawyer, author of a SAS ination of Saint the plot to murder Oscar Romero in the quest to bring his killers to Justice. The book won the two thousand seventeen Honey Mendez book award for human rights in Latin America is in Brent served on the trial team that brought the only court verdict ever reached for Romero's murder. Welcome to democracy now that it's great to have you with us joining us from British Columbia. Can you talk about what happened to Oscar Romero who is responsible for his assassination. Romero was killed by a desk wa that was was headed by Roberto Dhabi's, and it was a very important military intelligence figure in El Salvador in the late seventies who was backed by some of the wealthiest families in all Salvador who were very outspoken against archbishop Romero for his kind of nation of the repression that they underwrote in El Salvador and the murder occurred. As you were just saying a day after Ramirez, most strident call in his homily to stop the repression. And so the this desk wide carried out his murder and Roberto Dobson, rather than ending up in jail. Ended up becoming one of the most powerful political figures in all Salvador throughout the night. Nine hundred eighty s Dow Jones relationship with the US government and with the school of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia, Madison, Brent. So I mean, there's there's a long history of US government training of Salvadoran military officials. Dobson did attend international police academy in Washington DC, and there was some connection to the school of the Americas. Now, his training, as far as I know, was not as extensive as some of the other connections to to even higher ranking Salvadoran military figures, but certainly his he, he did have some connections to the US government and he and his political backers had close connections to politicians and political groups in in Washington DC. And it's also important to note that that the death squad that Dobson headed and other desk. Quads el-salvador occurred. Erred as a result of US policy. Starting back in the nineteen sixties of training, Latin American militaries. And so there there is US responsibility in terms of building up that structure that that led to the death squad and the just horrific violence that occurred and also at that time, and that is in Brent your response to the pope, making us go Romero a Saint and what this means is thousand celebrated el-salvador. Tremendously important moment for el-salvador and and for this Romero's canonization took decades and for it to finally happen. And for him to be declared a Saint is it cannot be overstated how important this is for El Salvador and just really a tremendous tremendous moment, not it wouldn't be regardless four l. Salvador, but especially after decades of resistance to him being declared a Saint, both in the Vatican and l. Salvador for for his cause to finally overcome. All of these challenges is is tremendously important. But I also do make the note that as as big an achievement in his important day, as it was yesterday for Salvador, there's still a second piece which is Justice for his killers and to this point other than the civil lawsuit that I was involved in. In the United States against one of his killers, nobody has been held accountable for his killing and no one. His has gone to jail El Salvador or even been put on trial there. So there's the second as important as the candidate was. There is now the second piece that has to be achieved after all these years. We're gonna do park discussion, posted web exclusives at democracy. Now, dot org is in Brent's. Please stay with us, author of SAS nation of Saint. I'll be speaking at the metro graph theater in New York tonight and in Florida in Gainesville, as well as other places this weekend. I mean, he Goodman thanks for joining us.

"Do. President Trump will be campaigning for Republicans this weekend, and he will visit Kentucky. The president will be in the congressional district from which morning edition team is reporting this morning. We're in Lexington, Kentucky after spending days, listening to voters, including Allen hall z. who was editor of a rural newspaper called the swift creek Currier, and he will be at the Trump rally. I was actually Trump voter was and I'm able form again, I'm gonna arrangement to see him this weekend. Are you ready? I won't get show. Maybe I won't get shot. He says halls e is deciding if he will support the president's favoured congressional candidate. The incumbent Andy Barr. Now Halsey is conservative, but says he also prefers divided government, Kentucky as a red state, but also a state where teachers protested a Republican governor this year and Audrey long is one of those who held up signs at the state capital. We talked over dinner in Lexington, did those protests caused some. Teachers to become more politically active than they would've? Oh, heck, yes. Oh, heck yes. If I remember correctly, it's more teachers running for state office this year than ever before. Now we've met dozens of people in three corners of this district, poor rural county, upscale horse track Keeneland and a historic lack neighborhood. Now we're gonna talk over what we found with Emily bowl. You who a political science professor at the university of Kentucky. Good morning, welcome combined. I guess we should just mention. We have a few friends with us here. Broom-wagon bikes and coffee. Would you let the country know you're here guys. All right. And let's just ask about this district. We're in the sixth district, what would make this district competitive in such a red state? Well, that's interesting. So historically, Kentucky follows a pattern of other southern states in that even as these states trended Republican, the national level, particularly for presidential elections Democrats retained strong control at the state level. And so we've seen districts like the sixth able to move back and forth. You've got some more conservative Democrats something else going on here as well. We're in a very modern and urban place in a city and increasingly diverse place. The teacher we heard from teaches English as a second language and get students coming from all over the world. Lexington, Kentucky, yes. Is there a divide between rural and urban in a place like this? If we just drive an hour to the east in the mountains, I feel like we're in a very different world. It is what you have. Different types of rural here in Kentucky, right? We have the horse industry which brings a certain type of rural, and then we have as you move further east more impoverished rural community. That's places where you've got small hollows as they call them small farms or nothing, particularly going on and tremendous problems with drugs and other issues. There's an economic divide as well, right? This is a very prosperous city that we're in and a place of education. How big a place does the university of Kentucky hold in this? Not that you're biased rent, not at all. The university of Kentucky is is the largest industry here in Lexington, along with suppliers like Toyota manufacturers, Toyota and lex, Mark, and the bourbon industry, the bourbon industry. That's really interesting. Isn't that industry being affected by tariffs, president, Tump Trump impose tariffs, and you now have Europeans imposing tariffs on Kentucky bourbon. There are concerns about the tariffs? Yes. So how are the candidates navigating these divides? We have Andy Barr Republican. We have Amy McGrath de. McCray running for office for the first time. So Amy McGrath is definitely appealing to that more centrist democratic tendency that we see here trying to emphasize some of the economic issues. And how does Andy Barr pushback by questioning the extent to which McGrath is a centrist ochre. And one final question. How popular does it feel to you that President Trump is in the state of Kentucky. It depends on who you. Deeply divided, but he did receive sixty two percent of the vote in this state and sixty eight percent of this congressional district. I think Emily bowl you of the university of Kentucky. Thanks so much. All right. Looking ahead now to the weekend on Sunday, nearly forty years after he was assassinated. While saying, mass Salvadoran archbishop Oscar Romero will be canonized by the Vatican you see us at ASEAN play offs. For the goose. The s p was at a time of so much confusion in anguish. I want to be a messenger, a hope in the midst of tragedy. Let's shake there is I bid on archbishop Romero constantly spoke against the violence that was tearing his native, El Salvador apart in the nineteen seventies his radio, broadcasts, demanding social Justice, reached hundreds of thousands of people, but his wars also angered the country's military rulers and Danny, hey, Jack, is with me. He's one of our producers morning edition. He's been reporting on Romero good morning any, hey, no. What did you learn about Oscar Romero? Well, he was a fighter for Justice and they called him the voice of the voiceless this was a time when l. Salvador's military regime which was supported by the United States killed kidnapped and tortured civilians. Many of them, the poorest in society, Patricia. Morales TA. Reno who met archbishop Romero just before his death says his preaching defended the most vulnerable, the people failed protected by him. That protection was the power of his words. And so- Romero ran this commission that investigated human rights abuses and every Sunday during mass. He named victims of murder and the countless who disappeared. And it was incredibly dangerous for him to do that in his homilies were broadcast on the radio in the became sort of like. Newscasts for the poor. I talked with Franciscan brother, Tovey Duran in Houston, work at the Catholic radio station in sunset, Vidor everybody. Everybody was listening. Including his enemies and he had many enemies. Who were they? El Salvador's oligarchy the military. They were threatened by Romero because he openly talked about these injustices and he and powered the poor to do something about it. And he died for that in March of nineteen eighty. While he was saying mass at this little hospital chapel in San Salvador, he was shot at the altar by a gunman from right wing desk. What? Why did it take almost forty years for Romero to be canonized will Romero's always been controversial, especially within the Catholic church. He supported the poor. He was critical of the government. So he was accused of being a communist which he was not. But his cause for sainthood was stalled by the Vatican for years because of that Vatican officials said he was too aligned with the that promoted the cause for social Justice. But put Francis finally changed that in this is huge for El Salvador. It's a country with one of the highest murder rates in the world. So Oscar Romero. Those words are just as relevant now as they were thirty years ago. A fascinating man and some fascinating reporting NPR's Danny. Hey, Jack, Denny. Thanks so much. Thank you.
