Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes: Trump Will Use Every Opportunity To Divide People
"And I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington today, the governor and lieutenant governor of Wisconsin now President Trump to stay away from their state. So did the mayor of Kenosha, Wisconsin, who says the city needs time to heal, But the president showed up anyway. Trump's trip comes after days of unrest following the police shooting of a black man, Jacob Blake that left him hospitalized. It also comes after a white 17 year old Kyle Riton house with charged with six criminal counts, including first degree intentional homicide. Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela. Barnes, a Democrat, joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me today. We're glad to have you. Governor Tony either sent a letter asking President Trump not to visit Kenosha. You've called for him to stay away as well. Do you see any potential benefit to having him? There may be a chance to meet and talk to him in a productive way. No, I do not because if a real leader would have proven that already, he would have given words Tio help console the people of this community of people of this state and the people of this nation because what happened in Kenosha? It's something that happens all too often in this country, and the president has offered no sort of resolve. You can look at the president's invective. You can look at the RNC, which tried to capitalize all such situations, which tried to politicize People who are crying out who are stepping up marching and demanding racial justice. And Donald Trump doesn't want to hear that He is going to use every opportunity that he can to divide the people of this state. A CZ. This is a critical state for his re election, and it's unfortunate because You know, these are realize that we're talking about Governor Evers called for a special session of the Legislature on Monday to address police reform. But Republicans didn't show up and that session lasted 30 seconds. To get any legislation through. You need Republican support. Do you have a plan for how to do that? Well, eyes unfortunate that you know, we could ask. What's our plan? When the Legislature and the Republicans in the Legislature don't get asked why they continue to ignore people, it took them forever to respond. A covert 19. They haven't responded to the health care crisis. They haven't responded to the dairy crisis that our family farmers are dealing with in this country. They haven't responded to gun violence prevention. They have responded to the client. Crisis, Every issue they continue to fail and ignore the people of this state. Kenosha is the latest city to deal with protests and sometimes counter protests that have turned violent governor ever sent in the national Guard as the protests were heating up, and some protesters said that having the guards there made unrest worse. Do you think the governor made the right decision by sending in the guards? So the governor sent in the guard's ate with controlling fires that were set. You know, this is all in the interest of safety because fires can get out of control. Fire touches the wrong thing. You have explosions that you can potentially have more loss of life. That was the purpose of the National Guard. I think what protesters were experiencing Was a heightened response from from law enforcement and the press conference that happened shortly after the young man who traveled to Wisconsin from Illinois to kill two people in our streets. The response was well, maybe if people weren't out past curfew, ignoring the fact that you're the shooter was also out past curfew. So to assign blame to that the victims that shows where we are in in terms of thought with some of the local law enforcement that's on the ground, and this is the reforming accountability that we're talking about. Whatever the reason, the guard was there, even if it was just to try to put out or prevent fires. It ends up being a law enforcement presence, the presence of authorities and this is the dilemma. I think for city and state leaders, how do you control what could become violent unrest? Without making people feel that the feds were storming in or with a guard is storming in. That's a really hard dilemma. Have you figured out the right balance of that? Is something that is a learning process. If I'm going to be completely honest, and and I I always I always promoted the fact that law enforcement should continuously Work to deescalate situations. Whether it is a or a personal interaction like the one with Jacob Blake and the three officers or whether we're talking larger scale events like protests and demonstrations. I think that you often see peaceful protest turned the other way when there is a heightened presence of what is perceived as authorities. So yeah, I do think there is there is a there is a problem. Because when people are protesting police, you know aggression with police overly aggressive police. The response cannot be over overly aggressive law enforcement. How to deal with violent unrest is becoming a major issue in the presidential campaign, and many Democrats who do not support President Trump worry that violent unrest helps him. That it lets him say the Democrats are weak on crime. What's your level of concern that you may be inadvertently helping President Trump's reelection efforts in that way? You know, I think that it's important for people to realize that again. The people who were killed. In Kenosha, where protesters they were killed by people who felt that they had a responsibility to help things to help matters to assist Now, like you mention Law enforcement are air National guards are there. They didn't eat health. Yet. These people are free to just walk the streets with long rifles, intimidating people. I think that is the important thing that people need to realize. Andi. I hope that folks to understand that Republicans continue to enable this sort of behavior this sort of behavior. That actually leads people did That's Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela. Barnes. Thank you for coming on the program. Thank you.
Trump visits Kenosha to back police after shooting
"Comparing police shootings to golfing and defending a trump supporter who allegedly killed two people. President Trump came to Kenosha, Wisconsin. The city is still reeling from the police shooting of Jacob Blake. President toward damages stemming from the unrest and met with law enforcement. We've seen tremendous violence, and we will put it out very, very quickly, if given the chance, and that's what this is all about. Yeah, I keep hearing about peaceful protests. I heared about everything. And then I come into an area like this. The town is burned down. Thie president's visit today spawned even more demonstrations and some confrontations between his supporters and black lives matter. Protestors. He did not meet with Jacob Leaks family. They say the 29 year old is paralyzed after Kenosha police officer shot him seven times in the back lakes uncle spoke this afternoon. Our nephew was shot seven times in the back. Nothing can justify that. He had no weapon. And he's paralyzed right now in the hospital. We don't have any words for the orange man. All I ask is that he keep his disrespect his foul language. Far away from our family thief shooting on August 23rd touch up a week of turmoil and almost daily protests. Many were peaceful gatherings, but some evening self fires Vandalism and looting for Democratic Governor Tony Evers sent in the National Guard. City officials estimate the cost of damage to city property so far at nearly $2 million, and today, Evers announced eight loans to assist local businesses. For his part, the president also pledged to provide millions of dollars for small businesses and law enforcement. Democrats across Wisconsin repeatedly requested the president not visit, saying he would only ignite tensions. This is Trump's America and the National Democratic Party released an ad today that echoed that President Trump for scenes of violence. His meeting with law enforcement today comes after he told Fox News last night that police officer's face high pressure situations. He then compared police shootings to golfing. They could do 10,000 great acts, which is what they do, and one bid or a Joker joker. They choke. In the meantime, he might have been going for a weapon and you know it was a whole big thing there, but they choke just like in a golf tournament Yesterday, President Trump also defended 17 year old Kyle Riton house. Charges, shooting three people and killing two last Tuesday during the protests. He was trying to get away from them. I guess it looks like he fell, and then they very violently attacked him. He was in very big trouble he would have been, he probably would have been killed, prosecutors say written how shot one person before protesters charged him. They try to take away his gun before he fired again. In that same interview, President Trump also encouraged a baseless conspiracy theory that powerful people in quote dark shadows were behind the protests. Wisconsin Democrats such as US Congressman Mark McCann, who represents Madison, condemned to the president's words. We don't want people Coming in from out of state with guns acting like vigilantes, thinking that they're running the streets. And yet that's exactly what Donald Trump is promoting, as he promotes his racial division Presidents. Comments are not the first time his appear to condone violence after a woman was killed, protesting against a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville in 2017, he said, this you also had people That were Very fine people on both sides and on the campaign trail in 2016, he said of a protester interrupting a rally like the punch him in the face back in Kenosha, the family of Jacob Blake but a community cleanup food drive in voter registration event at the site where he was shot. They're still calling for the officer who shot him to be charged

Then get caught up in this stuff. I mean, the parents of people just it's just a tragedy. Piled on top of tragedy. And why do we have these tragedies Because elect officials across the country have not stepped up the plate and have not maintained or know that, in fact, they had both a TTE, least in the case of Tony Evers and Mandela Barnes, they encouraged Dis Order they encourage disorder. People protecting their property have been accused of being vigilantes, people protecting their homes accused of being vigilantes. That isn't what a vigilante is Someone practicing home defense. Personal defense under the law, and the Constitution are not vigilantes, vigilantes or people who decide they're going to make up the law because they're not happy with the way the law is, and then they go out to execute it. That's not What people who are protecting businesses in Kenosha. We're doing that what the mob was doing, though they don't like the law. They decided to take the law into their own hands, and they have decided that they're mob justice in the form of burning buildings, looted businesses and people beaten within an inch of their lives is the way it's going to be. Now, that's there, there a mob, But they sure come closer to vigilante than the folks protecting businesses in Kenosha again when, when the elected officials don't protect Streets when they don't accept their responsibility and make sure that they provide the overwhelming manpower to keep peace When you have Mob rules trying to take over.

Sad, yes, very unfortunate, but predictable in the hospital system where I work, we are currently averaging less than three admissions a week that have the corona virus, and this is an assistant with over five hundred hospital beds. We have basically shut down our hospital system, and all its working parts for these few admissions. We are now starting to understand that the large majority of people that contract the coronavirus will well recover without ever knowing. They were infected data released Friday by Stanford researchers looking at cases in California suggests that case would tell rates they're likely range between point one two point, two percent similar to that of a bad case of seasonal flu, rather than the initial models Jesse mortality of. Of three to four percent, the constant barrage of media reports certainly doesn't help to interpret the actual reality of what most of us are seeing on the ground especially here in central Wisconsin needless to say a one shoe fits all approach. This problem is inconsistent with what many of us in the medical community see in think. We Are Not New York. We are not even Milwaukee. We're just Wausau Wisconsin. How are we not hearing these stories? Is it secret? Is there a big secret that people can't get their medical care? Is that the big secret that all of these medical professionals are being furloughed? Is it a big secret? That hospital beds are going? UNFILLED is the big secret that doctors doctors who are seeing patients do not consider this. The the Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen is not a big secret that we're not supposed to have anybody able to processes information and make decisions for themselves whether or not, it's time to open up their business. That is a big secret. I wonder. Because we're treating it like a secret, I saw a story today. That Mark Zuckerberg is going to be shutting down any event pages that are planning protests against the shutdown. Because quote, the event pages are spreading misinformation really because the event pages that I've been seeing are simply talking about people wanting their freedom back. Is that misinformation I? Don't think it's misinformation Mr Zuckerberg and you're a zillionaire so quite frankly i. don't you have felt the impact like the rest of Wisconsin, or Illinois, or Indiana or Minnesota or Michigan or Iowa have fouled. Apparently it's a big secret. Don't WanNA. Let people organized a protest because to get information that there are a whole bunch of people who want to just simply go back to work and want to take responsibility for themselves, and their own health is a secret that is not permitted to be consumed widely by the users of facebook. It's getting crazy. The people who have us under lock and key like us under lock and key. The people who are making these decisions do not care that a man had to.

"Out. It doesn't look like we actually have a way to say. Here's the date. We're going to open Wisconsin also on the program today I'm GonNa talk about those protests. There's a big one coming up on Friday. Don't ask me about the organizers of this this is really a citizens ad hoc protest and it is growing by leaps and bounds. So I don't know the organizers I'm hoping to be able to get one of them on the air to talk about it but suffice to say one PM on Friday and your your participation if you want governor everts to be more specific than he's been is going to be required in some capacity on Friday where a mask do whatever you want but unless we start saying you do what we say. You're not the king of us. We shows you to represent us so we'll get to that coming up on the program. I've got some personal and painful stories about the impact of the shutdown here in Wisconsin as we now are are fully through our fourth week of this. But let's start with Governor Scott Walker. I'm glad you're able to come on the program today. A lot of people have been saying governor. This wouldn't happen if Scott Walker governor. So don't WanNa we start there would you have. Would you have made these decisions? Similarly as governor everts has to lack down our state. He's not the only governor doing it. Well the missing. Yeah Vicki the missing ingredient all this is the why not just the what what I mean by. That is on the onset when when governor neighbors other governors across the country. But I talking about this. Remember was saying Up until days before he did the order or his administration the order that they weren't GonNa shut down then. Obviously a bit a shock when it came to legislative leaders who felt like they were told one thing and not the other but the bottom line is we need to be explaining. Not only here Wisconsin but across the country. Why were doing things in and what they will lead to. And that's been missing out here. I think the coronavirus is real. I treat it seriously tonette night. Where masks we stay within a distance of six feet or more from other people were doing all the right things out there? But there's no explanation with this latest order last week as to why may twenty six People understandably are growing restless because they don't understand why lay out the facts. Lay at the parameters you alluded to. I look at the Hospital Association data and they showed the beginning of April was when we had the high water mark in terms of new cases. We've had less than that. Simpson it. It absent flows a little bit but it it has never been Since the beginning of April as high as it was that first week we need to know. What's the game plan for? Not just reopening Wisconsin. But I. I've argued for weeks in my writings in the Washington Times. We need to stagger this. We could start with manufacturing in the traits we can ease into other areas. We can lay out real criteria. Small businesses can say. I can do all those things. I'll keep my customer safe. I'll keep my employees safe cow me what I need to do and I'll go out and do but saying we're not going to be open. Memorial Day is just not the right thing to do particularly without an explanation. I was up in Marathon County. They have sixteen cases six teen. Why is Marathon County? Shut down you know why is Wazzan? Mohsen knee shutdown. Why is Northern Wisconsin? Shutdown? Why is Central Wisconsin? Shut down you know if the if the problem is one portion of Milwaukee County Aka the city of Milwaukee. It's not even Madison Scott. I'm looking at. I'm looking at University of Wisconsin. Hospital data that has total confirmed cases. Now at three hundred seventeen in house meaning hospitalized eighteen in the whole region. That you w hospital services so all of Dane County and a little bit beyond eighteen people in the hospital so why I would even put Dane County then in a list of why is Dane County. Also consider to be to be locked down your tickets affirmative icky so it's not understandably people economy small business owners workers others frustrated but I would say even for the health standpoint obviously protecting the health and safety of our fellow citizens incredibly important. But we're getting at a point now where you're talking about. Not Opening up the state until Memorial Day weekend. What about all the doctor's Office? What about all the clinics? What about all the hospitals where people would normally going in to get routine checkups corn? Getting them now for weeks if not months at a time. What about the impact? That has an early detection for cancer and other ailments out there there is a health impact on keeping the state shutdown without any rational explanation for how to get back that goes beyond just dealing with the coronavirus virus sorts. It's not even just about the economy. It's about the health impact this has. There's got to be illogical plan. Unconcerned about coronavirus. No doubt about one to defeat coronavirus. I wanted to feed it here. Wisconsin across the country. But I also WanNa make sure we find a way to get the economy back going again that we're able to get back to life where we can keep you healthy and other regards and I want to make sure that here in Wisconsin across the nation. We're not seeing the kind of encroachment on civil liberties that we increasingly see. Whether it's shutting down people were coming in for goodness sakes to a drive-in For a church service or people who are out on a boat fishing somewhere in each instance whether or not doing anything to harm the health and safety of their neighbors out there and dig hand of the government seems to be growing greater and greater across the country. Those things you can't pick one. You gotTA addressed all three of economy and the civil liberties of America and it's not an you said. We have not done a rational analysis. And it's true again. Everybody needs to see Al. Find the map and put it up online for you. You need to see what the state of Wisconsin looks like. And look where the cases are. It's Milwaukee County. It isn't Kenosha as much as it's Milwaukee County. It isn't even if you go even further west. It isn't even Dane Kelly. It's Milwaukee County where the problem is target Milwaukee County. I but but at the same time Scott I just got an email from someone. Said took a drive through the freighter. It's a ghost town there. I got an email from somebody else who said that one of the family members one of his family members was just furloughed who works at Milwaukee Area Hospital. He didn't want to tell me which one we got. All across Johnson under reported stories. Some of the biggest layoffs are coming to healthcare professionals. Who aren't working directly in treating patients with the krona virus that it's defies logic at the press isn't picking up on this and again like I said the reason unless you're an emergency room where you're seeing Covid nineteen overwhelmingly. The other healthcare workers are back at home themselves. Either laid off or just sent home one way or the other and think about all the early detection. My mind mother Found out years ago she had breast cancer thankfully really early through a three D. Mammogram as opposed to a Tutti. She went right in right away. Got Treated Has Been Healthy. I've ever since. But that only would have showed up when she went in right away for her scheduled exam if she delayed it for a couple of months it could have been far far worse. That's just one of the many programs problems we have. You're not I worry. All across America there's examples of people in government suspending commonsense. There's gotta be a logical way. We gotta lay out of plants. I've been saying this for weeks. I right people read it in the Washington Times I read about. How do we get the economy we do it through a staggered process? We that I would tell people if you're upset if you're out whether you're protesting or not show people that you that we can go back recently. Where a masks stay a reasonable distance? Show people this is the way that we ultimately realized on Wisconsin. And we can do. We're smart enough. We get this weekend if you tell small businesses. Hey we open. They're going to understand it as they want customers in their business. They're going to have to show that it's safe and it's healthy and it's clean and they can do that we don't need the government dictate. Every term lay at the guidelines and lets small business owners again through a staggered process. Reopen the economy. And get back to not just the economy but get back to treating people with things other than just crony buyers. That will save their lives as well. And that's something else is that the there's actually a personal health impact because you can't go see doctors now. There is also the stress level impact of someone. Who doesn't know if they're going to ever be able to pay the bills again or ever be able to put back the pieces of their lives. I talked to a lady who twenty five years ago with her friend. started a nail salon and I know nail salons aren't essential businesses right while it was essential to her because she pays her mortgage with that Nail Salon and her friend pays the mortgage with the Nail Salon. So all of this idea of essential business versus non essential business. You've got small towns around Wisconsin. That are ghost towns right now because all of the restaurants have shut down all the local mom and pop shops. Have shut down. Many of them are never gonNA come back online. So the idea that will. This isn't essential business but this isn't an essential business. Here's another impact that it has. It's essential for everybody by the way and as you noticed how bad the economy is doing right now. Clearly it's essential for the economy the idea of the non essential businesses a nonsensical term. But here's the other thing. Schools institutions being shut down or having a drastic impact on our dairy farms in our farms generally so shutting things down as quote nonessential means Wisconsin. Agriculture is on bended knee. Hoping to God they're going to be able to hang on just long enough to survive before they have to euthanize cows or or or do something like sell their land. Well you mentioned examples. Here's another one. I was talking checking people all the time. And when individuals telling me his spouse Owns a hair salon where everyone of the people that work there have their own space? Not Not just a cubicle. Literally their own room. They have an individual room. That's your business model. They at least it out from her. She owns the franchise every single one of these people's away from someone else. I said whether it's today tomorrow. May I may twenty six whatever point it is the future obviously for her to bring customers in for people. She works with the bring customers in. She's going to have to prove to them that that safe but let people like Curd Dude. Let let's open the door to say. Yeah here the things you need to do and then again. That's why I stress when people are making this point don't feed into the attack from those who want more government who went more restrictions more regulation by going out and you know not wearing a mask and and being huddled together with a bunch of the people show people how logical small businesses are going to operate when they reopened. They'RE GONNA make sure they're safe. They'RE GONNA make the case out there so that customers coveted business. We can do that. The best example I give is. We're already doing it when you go to the grocery store people do these things when you go to the drugstore people do these things if we can do them safely there we can over time..

"My guess is Williamson Evers bill Evers doctor bill Evers we're talking about a a ethnic studies proposal the state of California so is this in effect going into effect or does it still need some form of legislative approval quick question on that gonna be approved by the state board of education so there you would be voting in September okay now I'm in the article that you wrote it I just like to quote from this this some words here that I don't even understand that I'm fairly well read and maybe you can help us ethnic studies is described in the document as quote and please folks stay with me on this because there will be some parts here that I may mispronounce the inter disciplinary study of race ethnicity and in D. generally generally is that will help that would pronounce that ended in a at a indigent eighty with an emphasis on like it's like it's like indigenous indigent okay Eminem turned into now okay I I hate when announcer turned into verbs adverbs a turn to denounce an adjective that set you in me you and me to re think emphasis on experiences of people of color in the United States but that's not all quote it is the study of intersectional in ancestral roots colonialists T. hope I mispronounce that colonial a T. I I don't know how else to pronounce that I've never seen that will only Alavi coloni aliki okay has your money in a dignified world with many worlds fit for president future generations and here's a couple it is the X. disciplinary loving and critical that that should be cross disciplinary cross is a is a very very have a leans strains spellings okay moving spelling history eight X. S. T. O. R. Y. that's one word to make various political points okay so then it is the cross disciplinary loving and critical praxis of holistic humanity if that doesn't sound like mumble jumble from some sociologist I don't know what does and finally the documents fill with quoting you now fashionable academic jargon like push it positional maladies positional allegations analogies position Malachy's okay I wanted to use hi Britney these nip Hitler's what the hell is in the pamphlet apparent one is into sort of a enter make sure it's it's an American Indian word from an American Indian tribes and it means a kind of a mess and makes the point the point is a mixture and you could take off in in misogyny what and why I know what misogyny and what and what means so tell us what that so that's that's a combination of misogyny which means hatred of women and the law are which means black says his French so it means misogyny email it means the hatred of black women okay it includes faddish social science lingo like sis hetero hatchery archy that may make sense to radical university professors an activist but doesn't mean much to the regular folks who send their children to California's public schools eight point have we lost our collective or I should say have you folks in California lost your collective minds yes yes that's a good answer okay so but I'm still broadcasting am and they're still accepting comments internal August fifteenth but the real thing is that the state board of education should say these people went beyond the statutory rape request which was to create a model so that wall at the high quality ethnic studies would be in American California's classrooms by the way the people that wrote this consider it to be a model for all other states in the union of course of course that's all the way to California to sit for many other states in here your radio there were thirty eight so they have something to look forward to it gets better capitalism described as a form of power and oppression alongside patriarchy racism white supremacy and able US capitalism and capitalist appear as villains several times in the document now on politics you say this model curriculum similar left wing one proposed cause promises to wish for the African American experience from the pre colonial ancestral roots in Africa to the trans Atlantic slave trade and enslaved peoples uprisings in the antebellum south to the elements of hip hop and African cultural retention this is this is in high elementary school in high school or is what level examples in this curriculum are pretty much high school examples but there's nothing in the statute or anywhere else with those and say local districts couldn't have ethnic studies in the beginning right from the beginning thanks in elementary and middle but the hold on offer here are pretty much targeted toward high school right in and of course instead of talking about the biographies of if people like Martin Luther king and others on politics the model curriculum is severly left wing is that teachers are encouraged to cite the biographies of potentially significant figures I by the way potentially significant figures seems to me to be oxymoronic either a figure is significant or not hello I was a lot of Bradley chosen English and we're talking about he Angela Davis I don't know France fan I don't know I don't plan on is a psychologists and psychiatrists who wrote about revolutionary psychology so in his argument is and it's healthy for a country particularly a country that's been a colony go through very violent revolution because that way it will purge the colonial mentality and they'll have a re birth so we have not been a colony his famous book is called the record of and I'm sure he's writing that about America I I'm assuming Bobby Seale we all know Bobby Seale convicted cop killers Mumia Abu Jamal the guy who executed a cop in Philadelphia aside us your core students are I talk about the life of George Jackson are now more than ever Jackson while the prison became a revolutionary war if a black liberation of prison reform the Latino section people of significance include what are we can national is Oscar Lopez Rivera a member of a parliamentary a paramilitary group that carried out more than a hundred thirty bomb attacks and Lolita lebron I'm assuming Lolita lebron was not an actress or a single she was convicted of attempted murder in a group assault that would have five congressmen so she was with the group back in the nineteen fifties when they when that group attacked Congress right yeah this is this is garbage and and and this is where we are in in California is other any sane people left in in other than yourself in the state yes I I yeah I've gotten some emails from people and thank this is going overboard but I also have the French system the whole thing but we were older people would think this is just fine and this is what the students should be learning our idea I don't think it's a balanced or accurate account of ethnic groups in America or California it's revolutionary try it is what it is yeah yeah I mean all right also they have their pet takes on for example some prime mortgages which were what led to the nineteen two thousand seventeen in a recession and you know so their take on a new role something that the banks capitalists we're trying to do to poor people a bad thing you know he has some was a bad induced by government bureaucrats and politicians told the bank saying you a an offer Lewisham their mortgage requirements so it would be a liar loans no paper loans no well the the the the proponents of that that I know of is my friend former Massachusetts congressman Barney Frank there is no doubt he had a major role no question that and I don't think that that Barney to the best of my knowledge is some sort of right wing counter revolutionary knowing certainly a thoroughgoing liberal yeah so so as I as I look at all of this and I think to myself the figures in American history who are from minority communities we're going to study there these kids are going to be exposed to the lives and and I guess the hero the heroism of cop killers black Panthers and that is what people will but the children of California will be exposed to as opposed to hit historic figures in America you know who who fought against slavery who were involved in the abolitionist movement right on up through foo foo Dr Martin Luther king we talked about content I think they're I think they're doing at Martin Luther king mark he's you know put on the same level as Mumia self portrait which I think is rather strange George Jackson it's an old very very corner of perfect balance people and Anil told a fair minded story here exclude some over glorification of violence and of prison uprisings and things like that and it would have been a better regular but I mean there's an that they're there some the distal inserted behind him just to give you a sense of how strangest thing is it it condemns the Arabian nights with their remember you know the Disney version I meant to do those neighborhoods but of course is so famous book collection of folk tales content condemns them for being presenting a stereo types of Arabs but if they are Arabs folk tales and I just can't grasp the mentality it says aerobed entering artifacts are anti hero it is very rare in some other dimension the people writing this and if it doesn't serve some sort of revolutionary politics some sort of creating of activism and immobilizing students on campus to do things they don't want to pull your your final paragraph direct directly speaks to that the curriculum explicitly aims at encouraging students to become quote agents of change social justice organizes and advocates on quote in the sample unit teachers a direct to have students plan quote a direct action therefore he said in a die in a March a boycott strike well at least I guess they're not encouraging people to join in in T. fall so maybe that's maybe that's the next step I guess but my guest is bill Evers he is and an education they also they they pay their ethnic groups are national groups politically I mean we have many many more Vietnamese and California Vietnamese Americans than we do Arab Americans but they have a whole section on Arab Americans it's it's it's troubling that somebody thinks they can get away with imposing their son students and parents well I want to go to phone calls we gotta take a break if you'd like to comment on this and again I know some of you out there saying well this is the a radical and it's may perhaps academic and it's only a bunch of academics who are who are getting together in California no this is a curriculum which will be distributed throughout the California public school system high school middle schools this is dangerous stuff you're talking about indoctrinating individual students young people with propaganda in in you and if it happens in California it could happen here somehow some way this has to be stopped a weird we're doing our best tonight I'd love to hear your voice six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty we'll be right back with doctor bill Evers of the Hoover Institution in an insane idea that is more than just insane it is it's scandalous it is it is treasonous I think it it teaches lessons which are tend to divide us as opposed to unite us and it is a it is a a a a an education plan which will do everything it can to to balkanized the United States of America and that is tragic coming back on right side nice.
