"chen guang" Discussed on The Happy Warrior Podcast

"What is a political national convention will? Party and Nash Convention States traditionally until about the nineteen forties. Beginning with television and really went strongly in the nineteen sixties was a convention where the bigwigs and the party would meet and decide who would be on the big ticket items in the party. They would also funnel out jobs and appointments, and it was the classic dark filled Cigar Smoking Room. However that changed with the advent of some amendments to the constitution and with television becoming a brighter icon in the world of politics, and so a party conventions changed fundamentally in the nineteen sixties to become. Essentially just parties. Parties in the sense of birthday party to showcase the party to get people razzed in ready and revved up to support their party in November, and that's essentially what conventions have become. They technically still have things like party platforms and they talk about policy positions of the party but those things mean so little that the GOP didn't even have a party platform this year. So the RMC and the DNC the Republican National Convention the Democrat National Convention essentially what they are now is just a chance to get their ideas. Out to voters to try to get the voters excited for their ticket. Looking at their ratings, they're very close to about the same other Republicans did much better. The first time the second night that the Democrats did but the Democrats have done better on their third night than the Republicans did. You know. Parties say they're things they try to push up people who represent each of their coalitions. The DNC definitely put up people who are more social justice leading the also brought up La Bama folks, Obama himself and Michelle Obama. Both spoke at the DNC, which is a little unusual is, how is the speech that the obamas gave which were very partisan attacks used to be that? Former presidents and their wives were not involved in the politics day today. But unfortunately, we've lost that norm like we've lost. So many of our great American political norms there aren't is kind of interesting to me because they aren see unlike the DNC is filled to the brim with normies normal hard working Americans especially, people who are blue collar folks. He have a main lobstermen you have Minnesota timber men you have nurses and doctors and cops which makes the RNC strategy. Pretty interesting on the other thing that's worth noting about the NC's this year is that because of Covid the the party aspect of the national conventions was almost entirely gone. So normally a big part and I don't think that the Democrats quite realized how important it was to have that crowd. You know when you watch Nash Convention any other year, you see people milling about in the background when the president or their candidate gives their final speech there's a huge balloon drop. When you watch it that part of your brain that humans are so great at which is being part of a group. That social part of Brian Eno it gets it gets triggered a little bit and you get a little bit of a buzz and you you feel like you're part of something when you see these big moments at these conventions however. Which the Democrats unfortunately learned and they had their convention before the Republicans and the Republicans might Oh, the Democrats. A little bit for this They kind of tried to still do a normal convention but without the crowd and it worked just as well as the baseball games with the Teddy bears is to say it didn't work at all despite some actual appre high-quality speeches I thought Michelle Obama's speech Wa disagree. With her most sheets, most of what she said, it was a good speech. There were good speakers at the. DNC is just that they didn't have that audience. So the RMC, their strategy, they think they learned from this and instead they just put super duper high quality a little video to three minute videos between the different speakers and a an artsy also made sure that the speakers unless unless the headliners. Like last night was pence. You know unless you're on the headliners the final hour, you only get five minutes to speak, and this means you can put out twenty speakers each of these nights with the RNC and it works really really well, I watched this with. My mom and she talked about how compelling this was was she felt like she could really understand the speaker. She felt those speakers were a lot like her and she felt like this was a better way to do it and I have to agree I think she. is correct on that notion and I think if we're going to see internal polling from this and you can see some of this Frank Lloyd style on Fox News, where they have the speakers like Christine, get up my governor here in South Dakota and they look at audience retention and interest, and you could see their interest going way up. So it's been very effective the Republican national. Convention. I feel bad for the Democrats because they were kind of the more the experiment by going I the advantage by the way to going I normal in years. You a frame, the issues you get to put your frame of reference I and forces the other party to try to go against what you have set up unfortunately for the dams because the riots and their proliferation on social media the framing the DNC put out amount to much. It didn't really control what the RNC was willing to talk about, which is a little different in twenty twenty. Then previous national convention years I think there were a lot of good speeches I thought when Nicholas Sandman spoke out that was noteworthy because he was the Covington kid but. Of all the speeches I've seen at the RNC here one that really stuck out to me and really stayed with me after watched, it was the speech by Chen Guang Chen he is a Chinese Communist Party distant. He is blind he's a civil rights icon. He's an incredible human being and whatever you think of trump whatever your opinion is and who going to vote for in November you have to hear this speech. My Navy, the Chengguan him. Standing up to tyranny is not easy I know. When night spoke out against. Tana's when charter policy and other injustices. I were prosecuted beaten. Sent to prison and put under house arrest by the Chinese Communist Party the CCP. April two, thousand, five, two, thousand. I escaped. And what key? Shooter in the American Embassy impeaching. I'm forever grateful to the American people for were calm me and my family to the United States where we are now free. The CPI is an enemy of humanity. Eat is terrorism is on a people. And each is threatened any talk well being of the ward. In. China. Expressing. Believes or idea is not approved PAS of. CCP. Religion Democracy humorwise can lead to prison. To nation lives and their mass surveillance and censorship the US must you'd. Values of freedom democracy and the rule of law to. Carter. Court leash chain of other democracies to stop CCP's Grecian. President trump had led aunties and we need the other countries to join him in his fight. A. Five four, our future. Stand up to fight. Fairness isn't easy. I know. So the president, trump? But. He has. Sui the courage to we just satisfied. We, need to support. Vote, under five four president trump throws thick of the word. Thank you. Wow what an incredible speech you know I used that clip from twitter and already has one point five million views that is a powerful speech. Chenggong Chen. He is a big civil rights hero. He was one of these people in the two thousands that really woke people up to knowing the full impact of the one child policy was and people are more aware of it now than they used to be, but he went on to show how just horrendously hideous in destructive the one child policy was in China and for. Putting that out there he was his life was in danger, and so he turned to the US embassy and they protected him eventually he was allowed in the United States and I just felt very inspired when you have this Chinese distant reading his speech in. Braille I mean. How could you not hear that and see that and not just be floored and cruelly moved powerfully by It put me to tears when I first heard that is just so profoundly powerful. Thank you so much Chenggong Cheng for doing that. Thank you. That is just so important that that message gets out there. So what other messages are getting out there? Well, the message of the right's is getting out there, and this is why people in the DNC are hitting themselves repeatedly over is was the DNC. They could have been the party that says we need to. Be About Law and order. This is why we picked Kamala Harris as our gal because she is tougher on the issue of law and order than any other attorney in the country that was the way they could have spun the issue out. Unfortunately, they basically did not talk about the issue of the riots almost at all during the entire Democratic National Convention and they are really heating themselves over the heads just repeatedly I mean please Sir may have some more. Please Sir may have some more me. It's very painful what they're going through and the reason is this we are now in what could be referred to as and this is what Ian Mile Cheong had put it on twitter as we are now in George Floyd riots, three. Point. One point zero riots was of course George Floyd two point Oh with with. A resort and George Floyd riots three point zero are now what we're having the story of Jacob Blake this black man who was in this altercation with police in Kenosha Wisconsin and they tried to arrest him, tackle him as him, and they couldn't do it. This guy ran into the car, grab a knife and the shot him in the back, and of course, on this first goes on social media. You don't get the whole story that's how these things always go. And it just turned to this wildfire. What makes three point zero? So interesting is because the riots have moved downstream the riots. Were in Minneapolis they were in big urban blue cities and the big urban part of it or the big luxury part of it. Version three point. Now, the rights are now happening in the suburbs and they're happening in mid sized towns. The city of Kenosha Wisconsin has one hundred and nine thousand residents. That's it. It's smaller than my hometown here in South Dakota it's. Tiny. Tiny compared to Minneapolis. It's tiny compared to New York, or Chicago, or Seattle or Portland, or where wherever else we've had these rights generally the riots now moved into suburban areas in mid sized towns the riots are getting worse that is a big problem because more and more Americans are having a harder and harder time ignoring them especially, the maybe Democrats the maybe trumpers people who are like your suburban white college educated mom and who who's really worried about. You know the situation for her family is having a harder and harder time not finding an excuse to vote for trump. That is what's happening right now at the rights and the DNC did not take advantage of a Comma Harris pick and that was just dumb politicking. Not speaking I don't like Comma Harris I'm anti-drug Warrior the. On every other issue. The, you could possibly be with Kamla, Harrison I. think we're like completely polar opposites. But if you're going to pick some unlike comma harass you have to go with the law and order? Angle. And they did it they they saw this and they flinched and so what the Republicans have been doing is they have been saying all this week we are the Party of law and order we put up cops we put up all these people who talk about the opioid crisis, which just drives me not your the no fruit back and winter but I understand where they're going with this. They say that pence actually says Joe Biden will be a Trojan horse for the Democrats and we say, Trojan, horse it says two things he says one for the radical left right he saying Trojan horse for their left but he also sing Trojan horse for the riots and the riots are bad now. With politics anything can happen. So the best way you can expect what will happen is by looking at history while I'm in one, thousand, nine, hundred sixties and the latter half, the nineteen sixties there was a huge spread of incredible violence riots that took place it was these rights effectively ended the push of the civil rights movement of the sixties. It was also these riots that got us. Nixon. Kate. There was you know people just felt that these rights were control this was on American and so they moved to the GOP. It would be a fair description to say that the biggest force American politics right now are though riots taking place throughout the country they are very influential. The opening segment I showed you is of audio clips from Kenosha Wisconsin where you have a gaming store that was forced to close and said, we'll never be able to come back up until Jeremy Hambley of the quartering got people to do a huge go fund me, and now they're back up look like they were closed but all these businesses. Were burning fire just all these different businesses have nothing whatsoever to do with police or racial justice. They were just lit on fire left trucks, cars I mean there's even this clip of CNN reporter he stained there in the midst of all these fires and he says, the protests are mostly peaceful I mean you can't make it up is so on point and it's just as bad look now I do I think the question of are the riots the most important force American politics goes to is they're invisible trump supporter right now in the non battleground states, Biden is ahead and just about all of them that you would expect. It's not looking good for trump however, in the battleground states, he's about at the same place that Hillary Clinton was especially in Wisconsin and if the Democrats lose Wisconsin, that's it game over man because then they have to win Arizona and that is a much harder poll. That's a Mutt you know that's a heavier thing to try to pull off. And so You have to ask yourself is there an invisible trump support? Well, we do know that sixty, two percent of Americans according Kato are too afraid to say anything we do know that You know a good majority of Democrats and a good size of people who are Republicans say we'll we're okay if we fire someone because they have the opposite political belief so. We do know that people are feeling afraid. So they might not be willing to tell the truth now because the left the radical left controls, the levers of the Culture Dow make you think that maybe the people on the right who would be the Baby Democrat? Maybe trumper that they would be the ones afraid to say actually I'm voting for big orange man. And I am reading towards that belief but this is a belief. That's almost like a religious belief in the sense that you see it's invisible but you can't prove it's true and. You can believe is true. You can know it to be true can't prove it, and that's kind of where I'm at with with the imaginary invisible trump supporter but they could very well, if Americans are paying attention and they being able to see past their worry about Cova these riots in Kenosha especially are worrying people they see these riots happening to Middle America and getting into the suburbs. You have these people going to restaurants just chewing out in scared by that segment in the opening where it's why silence not violence that was at a restaurant and they were heckling black lives matter supporter for not giving the power fist while they were eating. So these things are getting out of control and I have to believe if there's something good left in American. I believe there's a lot that's good in this country. Big Big amount of good in this country that there are Americans paying attention that's gotta move things in November. Now, I have not come out publicly in favor of voting for trump and the big thing holding me back as well. I mean, half his policies I despise but his thing on the opioid crisis so bad I don't know if I could morally Sam going to be a trump. Voter in November and do that. But I understand you guys are because I. Definitely feel this two that with the riots happening the DNC the Democrats are moral. Okay. With this and not really saying, Hey, guys knock it off. There is rule of law there is no justice with mob rule, and so we have to get things back in order and the Republicans are willing to go there and I go back to this every time again, it's one party says we want individual justice everyone says, we want social justice and social justice is. Not. Real justice because justice only matters when it comes to individuals if you can just be treated a certain way because you're member of some group and this is what was true in you know with the KKK reconstruction this was true in the South during the twentieth century before the Martin Luther King in the civil rights movement will it's wrong if it's happening to anyone else as a social justice too often, it seems to be more like a play like well, we hate racism. So we're just GONNA flip racism around the. The Equity Argument I've talked about before in this podcast and I despise it because I believe we should judge people by the character, their content. Sorry. The constant, their character, not the color of their skin and I'm not going to judge you because you're white or you're black your gear, your straight I'm going to try to judge you on the merits of who you are as a person, your actions, your words your deeds are the only things you can. You can Judge Amana because we're not gods can't read minds and if We could read minds I'm sure there will be a lot that we don't understand. You don't fly feelings. There's contexts hard to understand only God really knows individual justice is so fundamentally important you without individual justice there is no point to have constitution without individual justice. There's no point in having the bill of rights you have to have individual justice because you need to know that. When you go to court, it doesn't matter what your political position, what your skin color what your religion is that you will get a fair shake. And it's. When the black community has, hey, we're not getting a fair shake I'm open to that argument I think on some things especially when it comes to to low level drug crime that often is true and we should seek to make sure that they have individual justice where when it's the innocence project and they talking about people being wrongly convicted based on bogus science I'm there man I'm there man I think most Americans are. So, we have to have individual justice, and Democrats are not speaking up for it and the Republicans are. So I don't think I'm going to change on this but I'm GonNa Tell You my friends you happy warriors. If you decide to vote trump pence in November twenty, twenty,.

So many of our great American political norms there aren't is kind of interesting to me because they aren see unlike the DNC is filled to the brim with normies normal hard working Americans especially, people who are blue collar folks. He have a main lobstermen you have Minnesota timber men you have nurses and doctors and cops which makes the RNC strategy. Pretty interesting on the other thing that's worth noting about the NC's this year is that because of Covid the the party aspect of the national conventions was almost entirely gone. So normally a big part and I don't think that the Democrats quite realized how important it was to have that crowd. You know when you watch Nash Convention any other year, you see people milling about in the background when the president or their candidate gives their final speech there's a huge balloon drop. When you watch it that part of your brain that humans are so great at which is being part of a group. That social part of Brian Eno it gets it gets triggered a little bit and you get a little bit of a buzz and you you feel like you're part of something when you see these big moments at these conventions however. Which the Democrats unfortunately learned and they had their convention before the Republicans and the Republicans might Oh, the Democrats. A little bit for this They kind of tried to still do a normal convention but without the crowd and it worked just as well as the baseball games with the Teddy bears is to say it didn't work at all despite some actual appre high-quality speeches I thought Michelle Obama's speech Wa disagree. With her most sheets, most of what she said, it was a good speech. There were good speakers at the. DNC is just that they didn't have that audience. So the RMC, their strategy, they think they learned from this and instead they just put super duper high quality a little video to three minute videos between the different speakers and a an artsy also made sure that the speakers unless unless the headliners. Like last night was pence. You know unless you're on the headliners the final hour, you only get five minutes to speak, and this means you can put out twenty speakers each of these nights with the RNC and it works really really well, I watched this with. My mom and she talked about how compelling this was was she felt like she could really understand the speaker. She felt those speakers were a lot like her and she felt like this was a better way to do it and I have to agree I think she. is correct on that notion and I think if we're going to see internal polling from this and you can see some of this Frank Lloyd style on Fox News, where they have the speakers like Christine, get up my governor here in South Dakota and they look at audience retention and interest, and you could see their interest going way up. So it's been very effective the Republican national. Convention. I feel bad for the Democrats because they were kind of the more the experiment by going I the advantage by the way to going I normal in years. You a frame, the issues you get to put your frame of reference I and forces the other party to try to go against what you have set up unfortunately for the dams because the riots and their proliferation on social media the framing the DNC put out amount to much. It didn't really control what the RNC was willing to talk about, which is a little different in twenty twenty. Then previous national convention years I think there were a lot of good speeches I thought when Nicholas Sandman spoke out that was noteworthy because he was the Covington kid but. Of all the speeches I've seen at the RNC here one that really stuck out to me and really stayed with me after watched, it was the speech by Chen Guang Chen he is a Chinese Communist Party distant. He is blind he's a civil rights icon. He's an incredible human being and whatever you think of trump whatever.

We've heard from a number of speakers who've emphasized tonight the lawlessness that they say pervades democratic led city. So what? What are we hearing here? There is thiss signal that is going out that the president feels is going to help him be reelected, which is that the president stands for law and order, and the Democrats are for whatever is violent in the streets, not the peaceful demonstrations that have dominated the reaction since the death of George Floyd. Not the majority of the peaceful demonstrations in Kenosha in recent days after the shooting of Joshua Blake, but rather the violence that takes place after curfew and that the that has been perpetrated by people on both sides of the question, including the shooter left, right.
