Wokelash Comes Back to Bite Democrats

"The woke lash that we experienced this week. Is being interpreted by different camps in the Democrat party. The Democrat party's not really sure how to proceed. So, on one side, you say we were not, radical enough. That's Elon Omar, AOC. They say they didn't do CRT enough. David plot. We have Stephanie cutter, James carville, who came out and said that we need a woke detox. Well let me tell you, let me just kind of end the suspense for you if you will. That Democrats made a decision right as Floyd a palooza was beginning in last June. As Floyd a palooza was happening, and we had $3 billion in damages across the country, Wendy's on fire, police officers getting shot, Democrats saw a kinetic political energy that they wanted to seize for their own machiavellian, short term. Power goals. They didn't care about the cost. They made an all in bet on the racial arguments that this was going to be as significant as powerful as persuasive and as permanent. As the sudden shift on gay marriage in America. The Democrat consultants, the corporate hacks, they all said okay. The same way that Americans attitudes on gay marriage change dramatically in almost 5 years, that is going to be the case with race. That we are going to be we have to be ahead of this thing and we want to be the party of woke.

"Live in Wyoming actually don't care that much about stopping Trump. I got that feeling to have never been the Wyoming but I watched a TV show about it, so I consider myself to be kind of an expert. Well, of course, And if that's how America work, That's how it works. As exactly no. I got to think. Why Why arming voted for Trump, right? Yeah, A lot of them did. In fact, I think Trump might even be more popular there than whizzes. Uh, yeah. Once upon a time, Liz, his daddy was probably very popular there, but maybe so times change. You know, Opinions changes. Well, uh, doesn't list Cheney have lesbian sister? She does, And they don't get along. Do you think that lesbian sister is the one that was in that U. S Army recruiting ad? That's a good point. I bet that was what's your face? Cheney? Yeah. Mary Cheney is the youngest daughter of Dick Cheney. Is she married? Um, let's I think she is. Yeah, she's she was is your wife or was your wife ever disabled? I don't know that. Do they have a daughter? It could have actually been them in that woke at. I think that's what we got right there. Mary Cheney if I'm not mistaken, didn't she and her sister publicly feud over marriage laws. I imagine so well, lives says she's opposed to, you know the whole lesbian marriage thing. Yeah, but She's not really a Republican. She's a Democrat. So is she supposed to be for it? You'd think so. Oddly enough, you know who's for gay marriage? Dick Dick loves gay marriage. I did notice. Yeah, Dick is actually okay. Well, I don't know if he loves it, but he was That the media would never talk about that back When George W. Was in charge, Dick Cheney was pro gay marriage and it never came up in conversation. It was one of those things they never really wanted to talk about. You know who who was again? You know, you know? Yeah. Melanie, Uh, Barack Obama? Yeah, that's true. Back when he first took office first time he ran. He would again it? Yeah. First time he did it. He was against gay marriage. They just don't want it to the S O. This idea with the media lying to you are not telling you the whole story's been going on for quite a while. And I'll give you another example of this. Yesterday, the Hill put out a big report about this new book being published. About? How did you know that? The Trump kids sometimes had a very close, somewhat inappropriate relationship with members of the Secret Service. Whoa! Like they would hang out together and maybe even flirt a little. This is a big bombshell report today. This is major stuff. And somehow that news is not as interesting to the liberal media is the fact that Hunter Biden smoked meth while he made love to a hooker's foot and we have photographs of this, and that's not a new, so that's not interesting at all. No, and he has. Ah, stripper. You got a stripper pregnant in Arkansas. While he was banging his dead brother's wife, The hunter Biden story is infinitely more interesting than this thing with the Trump kids. It could be the next Tiger King. If they just get behind this thing and push it a little bit. Apparently, the Trump kids would sometimes socialized with the socials with the Secret Service. Can you believe they were with him anyway? How inappropriate Oh, my God and Tiffany Trump flirted with an agent with a male agent of the secrets of a hubba. She is kind of a babe, isn't she? And she's a trump. If Tiffany Trump and Melania Trump, we're Democrats. Every fashion magazine that ever existed would have had them on the cover of it. And what's the daughter's name of she would be everywhere. Oh, they wouldn't be AH magazine cover that didn't have a trump chick on it. If they were Democrats. What do you think Tiffany trumps up to now? What's she got going on? He's up to about here, she said. Is that Yeah, but you know, she's not that big, No 59 or something. What? She's cute. They're all very cute girls. It's too bad, but we can't know we're not supposed to even begin. Areas. Don't ask. Nobody should be interested in anybody with the last name. Yeah, You're not even allowed to tweet about it. I don't want to know. Why must of course to say they tell me it would be it would be wrong. But getting back to this thing in Israel, you know in Israel. They have streets over there, named after the family. You're not supposed to talk about the T word. And maybe that's part of the reason why the Democrats are just trying to straddle that line that gray area between really showing support for either side. Trump would have come out and been very clear about this. And anyway, then I guess we all see where the Democrats stand on the whole situation. They actually funded the missiles. That sucks, huh? Yeah, that's the thing I don't want to pay for missiles in Israel. Well, they didn't ask us did they don't want to fund a CIA prison in Yemen. I don't want to pay for a woke recruitment military ad for the Army to show how the daughters of disabled lesbians I don't want my tax dollars going to that. Can I get a refund? Wouldn't that be sweet? Hey, fuck's Jon. Man, your new listing the Walton and Johnson and it's Weldon Johnson.

Cuomo's Fourth Accuser, Karen Hinton, Speaks Out

"About Governor Cuomo. And we have with us here on the show his fourth accuser, Karen, hidden Karen, you seem as we were talking about before the break. Very protective and feel really bad, especially for some of these younger women. Um, you are the same age right as Governor Cuomo. So you thought you you had been experienced in terms of dealing with Politicians and a whole bunch of things. But of course, never anticipated what had happened here. Do you regret that you didn't come forward sooner? Yes, I regret it. Uh, but on the other hand, I Never. There was never an opportunity for me to speak about it because there had not been any other public accusations. And you know, at By the time I had turned 40 I was no longer working for him and didn't work for him again. Um, you know, we weigh moved my husband on my second husband. I boot from Washington to New York. He began working with Governor Cuomo as his director, state operation. And um, and so I wanted to be supportive of Andrew's position as governor of New York and I wanted him to do well and I had unhappy a great deal of respect for many of the programs and policies he's put into place. I mean, the work you did around gay marriage. Was was very moving to me and very important. To this country and the work he's done in Cove it even though he's now facing criticism and rightfully so. His handling of the Because the manipulation of the numbers or the nursing home deaths occurred, whether it was in the hospital of the nursing him. That's very problematic and rightfully so, and we should be concerned about it at the same time. He also has done a very good job of of one of the first governor because it was one of the first hot spot to really take control of the terrible situation and try to turn it around and the death and the case is dropped. And they're continuing to drop now. But do you wish like maybe do you think maybe if I had said something 21 years ago He could have. It could have illuminated his behavior could have stopped his being out late. Do you think we live in it? We live in a country. Even they, uh, you know, it's problematic for the young woman who are coming forward. Now they could end up losing jobs or not getting jobs in the future, and people may want to stay away from them. And so, uh, my decision to do it now we try to stay. You can't speak out. You don't be silent, Speak out and support these women so that they can continue to function and have vibrant Important careers because in 1998 When I'm working for Andrew Cuomo. And then, of course in 2000. This was a time when they've been so much that the board about Bill Clinton's womanizing. And I did not want to find myself in a position where I could lose my my job. I could not get another job. I could lose clients who might hire me as a consultant after I left Hut. Wait. The country was not in a position to try to believe a woman. Did anybody believe Monica Lewinsky at first? Did anybody believe other women from Arkansas who accused Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior? No. They made fun of them. They called them been those They called him trying apart trash. No. Was I going to Uh, come out and say something about Andrew Cuomo in 2000. No I had anyway, I just decided not to do it for fear that that it would hurt me would hurt my family. And so I just opted not to say anything. Then time passes. And, uh, Andrew, an odd developed a friendship. I'm now married to someone he has known for a long time. Um, So you know I wanted doing I didn't want Oh, Tonto in any way harm that relationship, um, that he Had with my husband, So I just decided to keep it between my husband in May and another friend. That's it. That's what I was going to ask you. You told your husband and you told her friend. Um, did you ever tell? Did you ever talk to the governor and say Hey, what happened? Whether it was, you know the next day or a few years later, Or did he ever say anything to you Apologize even No, no, I wasn't gonna bring it up. I didn't want to have that kind of drama in my life. And, um s O. I just I'm just let let it nothing happened. It's not like he physically abused me in any way he let me leave. And, um and and nothing happened. So I just wanted to leave it there and looking back on it. Should I have done that? I wished More than anything that we lived in this society in 2000 turn of the century that we lived in the society where that type of behavior Would rarely happen when you're dealing with a person you are paying money to for help, and you're in a position of power, but no That's not wasn't the case in 2000 and 21 years later, it's still the case. And, you know, I'm now 62 years old. So you know, I've got I've got a life ahead of me that doesn't really involved. Um, um, Anyone needing to do me favors and get me a job? That sort of thing? These young women who turned the tables on the governor? You know, they put their lives at risk, and that's very courageous. It

Born This Way Is Old Science

"The confirmation hearings for Judge Amy, CONYBEARE IT Senator Maisy. Hirano of Hawaii expressed outrage and shock that the nominee would use the term sexual preference instead of sexual orientation sexual preference announced senator. TORONTO. Is An offensive and outdated term used by anti lgbtq activists to suggest that sexual orientation is a choice. It is not after the Exchange Merriam Webster which apparently like most Americans had not gotten that Nemo with these new linguistic absolutes quickly changed the definition of sexual preference in its online dictionary. To, indicate that this wording is now offensive who knew we'll beyond the orwellianism of the literally changing the dictionary to support a political climb. It seems that Senator Hirano is the one who's actually behind the Times on this whole sexual orientation versus Sexual Preference Issue According to Dr Glenn Stanton, and then outstanding new article at public discourse. Judge Barrett's terminology is actually more in line with the latest thinking of leading gender scholars for example, Professor Sorry Van Anders at candidates Queens University has stated that. Quote sexual orientation as a term is increasingly seen as regressive because it belongs to the bio centralist project translating to English. What she saying is that the word orientation suggests that sexuality is hard wired and according to Professor Anders that's just not the consensus anymore among her peers though the whole born this way claim was once a very useful slogan to advance gay rights it no longer serves the goals of the LGBTQ. Movement years ago for instance, two scholars at Ucla question the concept of. Sexual. Orientation especially for women to instead that women's sexuality and Orientation Fluid Changeable over time and variable across social context other social scientists that Glenn Stanton quotes in his public discourse Article Call For a paradigm shift in how female sexuality is studied and described, and there've been plenty of surveys indicate that most self identified lesbians will have relationships with men. At some point. There's also a more obvious problem with the idea of a fixed orientation that's found in the very initials of the acronym especially the. Be The queue of lgbtq as political commentator Douglas Murray who identifies as gay by the way rights bisexuals continued to be viewed as some kind of betrayal from within the gay community gay men tend to believe that men who claim to be by are in fact, gays in some form of denial yet according to a pew research report from last summer bisexuals account for almost half of all LGBTQ adult in the US in fact, the authors of a new book published by Harvard University Press. Think. That male bisexuals are those who call themselves mostly straight vastly outnumber exclusively gay men. Thus they conclude the old system of gay straight or BI has as stanton puts, it outgrown its usefulness and even bigger challenge in the B. to the born. This way dogma is the T- gay rights and gay marriage were sold to us. The premise that homosexuality is hard wired maybe even genetic like race but anyone claiming transgender as an identity does. So in spite of physical and genetic realities not because. Of them and the CUE which usually stands for questioning well, that continues to evolve in both meaning and practice to include more and more sexual preferences as an identity. Well, one wonders whether Senator Horon would feel compelled to lecture the various social scientists that Glenn Stanton sites. In this article my suspicion is she wouldn't in fact, my suspicion is that Senate Arana was fed this talking point by an aide who's checking twitter and saw it as an opportunity to tar and feather judge Barrett as. A big what's ultimately revealed by her political posturing awoke language policing however is crucially important for all of us to now that phrases such a sexual orientation or sexual preference or whatever. The latest nomenclature are terms made up not to describe reality but to advance the idea that has revolutionized. So much of our culture on politics that sexual attraction and urge define and determine who we are. That's the idea we can never embrace even if we're facing outrage from a senator

"News. This is the takeout with Major Garrett. Welcome back, Of course, welcome back to my living room here in Washington, D. C. As I told you the top of the show one topic to guess the topic. Supreme Court. Amy Cockney Barrett the future They're of the two guests. First you heard from Senator Chris Murphy, Democrat from Connecticut. Now I'm very pleased to welcome to the show, said Roy Blunt, Republican from Missouri Senator Thanks so much for joining us, major, great to be with you. So Chris Murphy told us that he is certain upon confirmation, which is inevitable. Amy Cockney Barrett will vote to do the three things repeal Roe vs Wade, Repeal the Affordable Care Act and repeal Supreme Court support and therefore, law of the land of gay marriage. True I can't imagine that's true. I'd certainly be glad to take some money from Chris Murphy on those three things. The trifecta. I don't what cases might come up, but I think she's gonna look at the case. Look at the law. Look at the Constitution. On and make a the good decision. He told us that he takes the president seriously. When the president says he would like to see justice is get rid of the affordable care act and do things differently than Justice. Roberts. Did you take the president seriously on that? We'll not be surprised if Chris Murphy actually takes the president. Seriously. I know Chris. Well, I've worked with him on some legislation. This might be the first time he's taken the president seriously. Uh, you know, I take her seriously when she says she has not talked to anybody about these cases has made no commitments on these cases. One. She's a great person. She's a fine judge, and she's under hold. I'm gonna take her seriously, and I'm sure that that's exactly the past. Are voters in Missouri, concerned about the future of the affordable care act in the sense that this is not a hypothetical as you Well know, Senator A case will be before the court right after the election. In all likelihood, Justice Barritt will be exactly that Justice Bharat and hear the case. Is this a issue of political importance in Missouri? I would think so. I would think a number of things they're in the affordable care act are sort of baked into the system now of whatever would happen in the court of the country would expect and the Congress would do what was necessary to maintain things like a preacher..

Am I Radical Enough?

"I think the one thing we can all agree on is that no one is happy right now with the way things are. But there's this agreement over how much change we can ask for right now. Like can I start to advocate for free college legalized pot? When like gay marriage might be repealed? I just worry that this push pull leaves me somewhere in the middle and settling for less. Limiting own dreams, what the future can be because I'm afraid about the president. I, just feel like a not radical enough. A recent example. So right now, people are rising up to protest against police violence and the phrase abolish the police or defunding police is really becoming an idea that is is much more mainstream sophia. No is an author and cartoonist who's been involved in a lot of radical activists, organizers circles. And so she posted something on instagram about defunding the police, and then I saw somebody else post something on instagram. That was like you have to say abolish the police. You can't say defined the police because if you say defunding police people don't know that what you mean is that it's a step towards abolition sophie. was what I posted not enough should I have said abolish instead then a friend of mine who's an older activists was like actually I think the word de fund is really important because it's it does represent a step and it represents an an action that people can understand as a step towards abolition, and so there's this back and forth about what is the right wording to use? It was kind of interesting for Sophie, that she was dealing with this dilemma because she just wrote a whole graphic novel about this. About how to try to be a good person in a bad world? The book is called the contradictions. One of the reasons I ended up deciding to like do the book is because I was sort of talking to friends of mine in the like anarchist scene we were talking about like when we first got introduced to like lefty ideas and. How those ideas came through people and how those people. Had An influence on how we thought about the ideas and like ideas can be perfect. But humans are fallible right? The comic is auto fiction. So the main characters named Sophie and it's based on Sophie's life, but it's not actually sophie. The book starts in Paris with Sophie having just arrived to study abroad. Here. I was age twenty. Character feels out of place and pretty quickly meets somebody who maybe alliance more with her background. So she's getting Abban. Sees. Somebody riding by on a fixed gear bike Fix Gear and makes the association that okay. After writing affixed here. Then maybe they're punk and if the navy there punk and maybe they're queer in like Ben. Maybe. I have a friend here. Fake. I saw you orientation. This person on the bike turns out to be another American in Sophie Study Abroad Program and they strike up a friendship. This person Zeena does not as clear as Sophie Hope, but she is opponent. Zina's Vegan. She is very active in like animal rights stuff and very vocal about it guy just broke up with worked at the COP with man we to sit outside and yell things like milk. It's full of US I used to be vegetarian but I'm Nima so I stopped. You could take iron pills or eat spinach character. Sophie explains that she's Tangentially associated with some anarchist or lefty friends back home and you know she's dipping her toes in into that world but hasn't really participated much and then Zena. You know she talks about having a planner full of activists activities and then she also gives Soviet. About these two anarchists hitchhiking around Western Europe. Everyone's making plans for spring break. What if we went hitchhiking? Taking a plane, the gas emissions are out of control and also going hitchhiking is more. Living the ideals I think I'll go vegan for the trip like in solidarity you don't have to do that. But I want to. XENA and Sophie hit the road trying to thumb their way from Paris to Amsterdam. Freeway insurance how? Actually exhausting and it takes ever. So that when they get to Amsterdam Sophie, kind of pulls out the map and it's like, oh, we could go to the end Frank House. I don't know. Like the Van Gogh Museum. Na. Dena just does not seem interested museums only showed the narrative of the victor and they are hierarchical thing that must be abolished or whatever. There's a comic shop. I'd like to see maybe we can walk there. Sure Well, they end up wandering around a fair bit. It's sort of the. The deflation of like we we did the thing and we're here and. Now. We're just here.

Los Angeles County's Lynwood City Manager Placed On Administrative Leave Following Response To Shooting Of 2 Deputies

"You had, of course, the shooting of the deputies in Los Angeles and there was there is a city man. The city manager of a suburb in that area is in the woods called Linwood City. It's right in the area, and the city manager of Linwood City is Jose. Oh, Mettetal. I'm sure I'm not pronouncing that correctly. Apologies, Jose. He has never been put on leave pending an internal investigation. And here is why Salvatore Alatorre Isa Linwood City Councilman, and he told Fox News that the council had a closed session last night and in that session, Allah tour. Put forth emotion to discipline or dismiss all met a tall because he posted on his personal instagram opposed right after the deputies were shot he put he put opposed that said Chickens come home to roost with a picture of Malcolm X. This is right after the deputies were shot, so the message was pretty clear with what he was saying there. It didn't need an explanation. Hey, told Fox News Allah tour told Fox News and in a text message. That the move against the metal was protocol and that he is gone and he will not represent Linwood anymore. It's a legal process to protect the city. He said. The city manager went beyond his authority with his remarks, even though it was posted to his private account, and I have see here's my thing. I'm a big fan of You. You're allowed to have a private life. If you're in public service, I think you're allowed to have a private life and I I look sometimes and I'm going to be fair, like for Chick Fillet, the owner of Chick fil A Everybody's all upset with him because he donated Teo that proposition California to not legalize gay marriage. You know what, Like, five years years ago or so, whatever, but getting his business practice in practice. They don't decide discriminated discriminated against Anyone for being gay or anything like that. Those are his personal beliefs, but But if this is different, this is these are this guy's personal beliefs. Right notably, you're allowed those But this is a personal belief. That's kind of your talking about death on somebody like like applauding someone's death to me that goes beyond the pale. Now there are some of the left tools. They will wait a minute. You know, the owner of chicken Is applauding, you know, and working actively to keep gay people from getting married that affects their lives. That's terrible, horrible thing, but I don't think you can equate them. You know, there's a line for me there somewhere. I'm just trying to be intellectually honest. You know, You know what I'm saying. Like, I think you have a private life. I can think you can say things privately. These are my beliefs, But I don't bring those beliefs to work with

Journalists of Color

"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business. Instead. She started her own media company to tell the stories that she wanted to tell. Hey another reminder asking you all to fill out that survey for us. Okay, it is anonymous.

School will start off our course in economics within workout for your brain how to decide what something newly costs for? Planet money from, NPR. People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,

Make Australia Gay Again

"Okay. Jeremy. So you found these stamps. They're clearly very gay What what's the deal like? Where do they come from? I've never heard of this Gay Kingdom what is it where is it and how can I move there? Are you messing with this? Jeremy is even a real thing. It's actually real and I've been working all day and night to find out more. I've called experts from the United Nations. The Council on Foreign Relations. I've made burner phones. My apartment's walls are covered and post it. Notes detailing epic story behind this kingdom yarn. Did you connect them John? It's GonNa ask the same thing. Yes it's required and after lots of law sleep. I think I finally have some answers. Hermit sexual people have honestly endeavoured everywhere to merge ourselves in the social life of surrounding communities and to be treated equally. This is an excerpt from the declaration of Independence of the gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the coral sea islands. A nation created for life liberty the pursuit of happiness. And all things gay well technically. It's a micro nation. So we'll micro nation is a place that declares that they are a nation but aren't recognized by other countries So it's basically someone walks out into their front yard and they're like my front yard is a nation In their mind they are their own country but they don't really have any recognition or any kind of Legitimacy in terms of the global stage this is Derrick Thomas. I tracked him down after he made fun video online about the gay and Lesbian Kingdom. I created a youtube channel. That has an ongoing series on micro nations and kind of the funny stuff that they get up to so there see land of land lower Malaysia. Lieber Land Danica in the Game Lesbian Kingdom of the Cross island. Derek told me that this gay kingdom was born in two thousand four when Australia passed a law saying that marriage was strictly between a man and a woman with gay marriage all the rage in America. The changes here a designed to thwart any similar attempts legal recognition. At Dav aside their community is facing a new wave way of homophobia. Here's John Howard. The prime minister at the time. The definition of marriage is something that should not a time potentially be subject to redefinition will change so in an attempt to protect against future gay marriages the law said marriage is by definition between a man and a woman and every single wedding ceremony in Australia. I kid you not that definition had to be like at your wedding you would need to say the words marriage. According to law in Australia is the Union of a man and a woman. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard in so romantic really but Derek said it actually kind of backfired and drew a lot more attention from activists about gay marriage than ever before Australia including one group in two thousand and four a group of gay rights activists who were attending the Brisbane. Gay Pride Festival Were frustrated with two thousand four marriage amendment act in Australia. They got on a boat. Well a seaplane That they christened the gay flower sailed it out to an island in the coral sea islands. Territory called CATO.

Support for the LGBTQ Community is on the Rise in the US

"Comparing numbers in in this Will REPORT BETWEEN Sort of how support for the. Lgbtq community has shifted between the years. Two Thousand Fifteen and two thousand nineteen right just a four year period. Okay Yeah that's that's not a huge period. Not a huge period. But it's very interesting. They surveyed more than forty thousand Americans. Small it's not small and they've found that seventy two percent of this group said that they they favored nondiscrimination protections for lesbian gay bisexual transgender People and that was in two thousand nineteen study seventy percent great so you can like that. Wow like amazing levels of support when you think about how far we've come since early two thousands so that's that's really remarkable and And something to be really really happy about but there's something in these numbers knew there was a but I knew that but is shocking and mildly. Hard to put your hat. Wrap your head around okay. During the same period the number of people who said they oppose allowing small businesses to refuse products and services to gays if doing so would violate their religious beliefs In Two Thousand Sixteen These the which was the highest point right at sixty one percent of Americans said that this this you know they're they're an opposition to this make sense. It's not fair it's not write. This number is dropped from two thousand sixteen right to fifty six percent in two thousand nineteen. Yeah and and this is surprising. People are I I'm a little taken aback by this. That the numbers could shift like that It's just five percentage points but like still right like I here's the problem The messaging on the wrong side of this issue is so good. It's their messaging is easy. It's just religious freedom. Yeah exactly. This is a country that has religious freedom. Yeah and the messaging on the other side isn't getting through which is just if you practice it you know if you're open to for business in the United States you're open for everybody right and that's the end. I know it's it's a really funny thing. And and what they're looking at in this article is they're talking about specifically the cases that were sort of out there in the news do with like cakes for weddings and so Yes you was linked to gay marriage and so the support of gay marriage and and so people that they were seeing. No that's not fair. That's not right. Let it up. But you're right. They as soon as the religious right lost on the gay marriage issue and saw the numbers like the support out. There in the public is so high right right. They know that they're not going to win that. And they're just going to look like dicks right and they're not gonna get the thing that they their their plan. B which is they want to be able to discriminate against gay people in some fashion right right and if they held on hard to keep fighting gay marriage gay marriage gay marriage they'd look like dicks right would lose favor on these other issues and the public's opinion would be solidified. They're actually really. They deftly shifted their focus. This issue And it looks like we've got some work to do because this is so fucking wrong right and I don't get how people can how they don't see this right. If you support marriage right at a at a rate of seventy two percent of this country right supporting gay people in equality in equal rights just in rights. You don't have to go to their wedding. Yeah just have to like the FA you just have to be okay with people having equality. How can there be this disparity right in other sort of other rights the rights to go about your life and to go and get goods and services at any business that's opened generally to the public? Yeah but that's the problem is that they couch it as a right. I have the right not to serve people that I don't want to. I have a right to discriminate. Great and when he's a stylish that you don't really well but we've established that you have the right to hate them and you have the right to be addict about it. But the problem is the People. Don't understand what the what being you know hanging out a shingle means what it means to say. I've opened a business to the public. Right we gotta we gotta get on the

Ed's Coming Out Story

"Ed so far. So now he's the editor in chief of mine about world. Gay Travel magazine well. He grew up in Boston. I interviewed him in a coffee shop in New York City. Just in case you're wondering what the background noise was. Well I think like a lot of people I probably questioned it. When I was quite young I remember at age. Five in six thinking. Oh I'm a little different from other people. I like dolls. I like things that my either boys don't seem to like so. I kind of started questioning things early early on. Did you worry about it at age or did you just sort of go with it with adult playing? I did actually worry about it. I thought about it and I think you have to think about at age. Five or six someone. Having to consider such job ponders weighty essential question. What does it duty at neurons right. I mean I think kind of in it probably helps hurts. I think it hurts gay. People in some ways it makes can make them neurotic but I think it helps gay people in the sense that you're firing synopsis that you probably normally wouldn't use for ten twenty years really so gay people having to think okay do do. Why hide this? Imagine at age five or six thinking I think I have to hide this from people. I know the only people like my parents like so you start thinking about gays in their ability to lend in act you know. Be Creative around how they present themselves. I just think I mean it's a long answer to question but yeah I did think about it quite a bit when I was younger and I kind of knew that it was quite wrong or wouldn't be accepted. So did you modify your behavior. Then did you try not play with dolls. Yeah I mean I. There was a moment I know I remember when I felt free and I was just doing whatever I wanted. And whether it was playing with dolls hanging out with girls whatever and just but then I realized that people askance at that so I had to modify behavior so yeah very early on. I joined every sport imaginable that my parents wanted me to join basketball baseball football and I happened to be good at a lot of them. Unfortunately so I was stuck in there every time I want to quit. The coach would call that kind of thing so it was kind of annoying in that sense but yeah I kind of tried to blend in as much as I could the other problem or maybe curse and blessing that I was always ahead of all my other peers in school in my grade so might have five brothers and sisters all of whom have multiple degrees written books. All this has happened so very smart group of people but even in that group I excelled beyond a lot of people. They weren't necessarily criticizing me for being effeminate or gay or but it was a little bit of like you know you gotta you got one hundred years. Smart TEACHER'S PET. Everyone likes you know so. I I think I suffered more because of the perceived intellectual superiority either already being bullied. Yeah never bullet was actually never bully knock on wood. I had muscle in my feeling like the free brought through straight brothers and two sisters and everyone there was never any bullying of any one of US really. We all went to a tiny little small Catholic school so I had the same twenty five fellow students more or less for eight years so in that environment. You people aren't allowed to bully are believed. It just doesn't happen. The nuns were very strict. So Luckily I've avoided all that okay. But this isn't boasted Ryan and matching. That's quite a fairly progressive city. Yeah yes and no I mean at the time especially I you know. I'm fifty now so that was quite a while ago and Boston has had deserved reputation for being super racist especially the Irish against every other every everyone else and there was a cover of Time magazine. Were like there was like this terrible bussing. Incident were blacks. Were being bussed into white neighborhoods and there was a huge from revolt by white people against it was pretty ugly. So Boston has a really strong history of Ugly racism and homophobia alongside there's the intellectual aspect of educational systems the progressive women who were early supporters of suffrage or the Boston. A revolution took place in part in Boston. So there's always those strains and when you think about gay marriage the first place gay marriages was permitted legally permitted was Massachusetts right. And you think Oh. That's a progressive. Not really it's actually kind of conservative. Marriage is a conservative institution so in a weird way. Massachusetts is progressive and conservative at the same time. It's hard to describe so gay people gay people who would walk around like. Oh yes my partner. And I we live in the south and we have a place in providence hand and we have a car and we have a dog and this is the perfect light so it was almost as that precipice heterosexuality but in reality a lot of times. Those perfect relationships weren't so perfect. So there's this attitude that you have to appear to others how you want to be perceived that doesn't happen in New York and San Francisco and other places so Boston is unique in that sense. So what was your personal coming out like? They must be the time when you thought I can't hide this any longer. I'm GONNA tell people. Yeah absolutely so I was saying earlier. I've had having five brothers and sisters in shoe parents and living abroad and doing all of a sudden I've had a long series of coming coming out and I think you just keep coming through your whole life. You sitting on an airplane in the past. The guy next to you is like what do you do is like on the editor in Chief of a gay travel magazine? You've just come out so I just roll my eyes. I get my business card. It's like Oh my God. Can I not escape this but but I was in college? I went to Harvard College and it was a very supportive environment even though in the eighties. It wasn't that supportive outside. I was in a bubble. I didn't really. I don't think I realized that came to my friends and a lot of people were coming out at that point in the eighties and so it was very quickly accepted and I came up to my sister. And she's like you're the second person who came up to me this week. Our best friend came up to her that that same week and so he and I ended up dating and she was so pissed off but so a lot of weird like it was completely fine but then after I left college I moved to France and it wasn't that accepted there my partner. His grandmother really hated me because she thought corrupted her son because she was old fashioned and my parents didn't councils much later. My brothers and sisters. I waited until they were a certain age and maturity level and I came up one after the next five to ten years. Much more five say didn't communicate with each other. I'm sure they did. I'm sure they all my direct coming out to them. I thought that was important to do for each one of them so I try to do that. And then you know my first job. The one of the bosses was gay so that was kind of easy for me to come out so the first one is in college when I kind of just I remember being in the shower and just thinking i. I've tried to date. Girls just is not working had a girlfriend at the time. She was at Yale and she turned out to be less. Call to the gay man generator because she three guys she dated. I'll turn gay. I was like boy honey yet. Crank on the mound very funny but it was convenient for me to have a girlfriend in a different city right. I mean obviously so I just thought it was very intellectual the way it did it was like it was like a switch was flipped flicked a switch. And that's it I'm gay and that's kind of how I I don't I deal with things you know. That's how it happened so revelatory moment in the shower that's like. What were you doing in the shower contemplating my life and I was like you know happy doing really well at Harvard. Had A lotta great friends but fundamentally unhappy well why well there was a disconnect between the person I was and then the person I was everyone else I wasn't signed. No one knew that person inside I thought and I thought well I want to bridge those differences. I want my friends who are so amazing so supportive to also know this part about me and it was maybe a little bit easier because I two friends who are just like shoe forward out ballsy gay guys just unapologetically gay and I liked that unapologetic aspect of it. I was talking to kind of had to apologize for being gay. But they kind of taught me. And this one William from Iowa from a small town Iowa like population five thousand a rural community but his parents are super progressive so he came up when he was wow to them in Iowa and they supported him when he was my friend in college. I thought if he can do it. I can do it in Boston at Harvard and Cambridge Massachusetts. For God's sake so. He was like one of my role models in the eighties to be gay and young in. Boston was a blast. The Club Scene. Superfund there were mixed men and women. Queer whatever. It was a really fun. Time to be gazed. So I gotTa Kinda got a lot of the fun and then of course AIDS kind of blew up everything but But it was a good moment for a while there so I felt supported and I felt like I could come out to a very positive reception and indeed. That was true. And then what about when you did confront So I I was living in France in Paris with my then partner for five years. The French guy and people visiting my sister Paris. My sister came back and said to my parents. Living with this guy. He's I think he's gay so they kind of out of me so I wrote a letter. It was like before emails. I wrote them a letter then when it came back to visit at Christmas. Confront me and my father was a funny super supportive away. He's Italian school because like my boss is gay. I you know he goes. I think people shouldn't be bullied. They shouldn't be discriminated against. I think it's terrible. I hear about a physical assault against gay people. I just didn't want in the family so it was a little bit of like the old fashioned Italian thing and my mother was just like you know the first word in AIDS is acquired. You can get you can get aids from anyone so she was more concerned for my health. And so I said I was overly intellectual with them and I didn't allow them really time to kind of catch up but I basically had my responses prepared for both but that was how it came out thirty years later. Whatever it is if they are the most unbelievable supportive you can possibly imagine. What was it like sitting down writing that letter? It was hard I mean. I knew that they loved Jerome. And so I knew that the thing about being anti-gay was very kind of general but the specific aspect of it. They really liked Jerome. And so when my father said when we really liked and he goes we don't want people in the house is to be set aside. I said well you don't want out every single one of my friends that they had invited to the house. I said you don't want Sabrina. Don't want Richard. You don't want Chris you don't want and I just made this whole long list. Said you don't want any of them back in the House. And they think they knew that it was ridiculous to say that they didn't want them in hospice. They really like these people but yeah the letter was hard to write. But it's actually easier to write a letter in some ways to talk to someone in person it's going to go and then you wait for the bombshell to happen. You wait for the response so it was interesting. It wasn't an email wasn't like quick. It was a couple of weeks had passed so good. Oh that's a good question. I should ask them. God bless them. They'RE IN THEIR LATE EIGHTIES. Kick in the doing great so yeah frame someone. I know I think they probably ripped it up and burn but they. They're interesting if a gay bashing occurred in. New York my dad call me making sure I was okay of course but also just to say you know express his revulsion towards that and his the horror that they felt about that you know they're really incredibly supportive.

"Point three FM again large police presence and paramedics on the scene around Weslake right now because of a shooting where it appears multiple people have been shot doors at businesses around the area being locked right now regularly scheduled programming being interrupted right now we'll have more developments with Tracy Taylor heather boss of the news team here as the night develops before moment we just want to take a break go back to the topic that we plan on speaking of and you know I mentioned in light of the shooting that if anyone was a praying person that they should say a word for the officers right now who are downtown investigating this and it appears that it suspects may still be at large here but less and less people seem to be praying these days there's a column up at five thirty eight dot com right now it talks about millennials leaving religion and not coming back and there is an abundance of reasons and theories as to why that might be and Miley what's your take on this story do you think it's just the ebb and flows between generations right now or do you think this time around when young people are leaving the pews they actually won't come back I think that this is this is something different I ate there has been an ongoing trend for the last few decades where people who even people who were raised going to church regularly often times they are leaving their religion entirely or just no longer practicing that the ritual weekly of going to church is not is not being honored as much and I think that a lot of organized religions are really in some cases scrambling to try to re brand themselves to reach out and and it it strikes a different chord in older members of congregation I I think and and number it across all denominations and different kinds of religions odd generational differences do come into play and there are certain sticking point issues where maybe I you know older generation might not want to come to church if something is is I talked about like maybe gay marriage or you know or their music's different or the music's there Jenner yeah even things that are subtle where it's you know rock and roll I remember when I grew up going to church with my family and I as there even just little things I would hear older members of the congregation even then not the liking of someone wore jeans or just certain things so so a reaching out to and maintaining and a younger our core demographic is is really difficult and I can relate to the story because I grew up also in the church and in my twenties I kind of departed from attending regularly any kind of formal service on Sunday mornings and really was one of the at Christmas Easter kind of guys so I'm with my wife then and what's changed everything for me was having kids in my thirties and then at that kind of compelling me to return to the faith and so I think there is a cycle that takes place that is familiar to a lot of people but these days it seems like so many churches are reaching for gimmicks or something to get people to come back in and there's a church in Minnesota that's asking old members to stay away as they open their new building so I don't even know if this was legal in the first place but having a multi generations be a part of a congregation is kind of integral to the whole process of religion and faith not expelling an entire age group bad idea well it it's it seems to me in the in this case it isn't as much expelling them because it's not like they're saying okay you've been coming here for thirty years no not anymore or you're gonna go to the shed we just built the back for the old folks they are trying to rather than its booting of the older people they are trying to attract younger people to a new a new location so that's I think that's a different there that also goes with a long standing tradition of youth groups and target ad gatherings of a younger generation of of people in the church so I think that while it's the headline can be a little jarring that they are you know asking the older people to quote go away I think ultimately I can understand where they're coming from and if you're just joining us we've had continuing coverage of a shooting at downtown near Westlake I've been following Michael spears of our news partner cara seven TV on this and I'm a little over twenty minutes ago he tweeted that he could see medics working on two people outside a McDonalds and one man on the sidewalk with a bullet to his leg outside of Macy's and officers speaking to another person.

Understanding 'church and state' in Brazil

"Today's show. We'll look at a couple of places which is and politicians make pretty unabashed best use of each other and at one country where a critical mass of the population seems to have grown tired of the arrangement. We'll stop in Brazil who's new president. Cheyenne Shaya Bolsonaro. One power on campaign heavily geared towards the least generous impulses Brazil's traditional Catholic believers and it's increasingly influential and rather less tolerant evangelical converts joining me to discuss. This is Antonio San Pyo research associate for conflict security and development at the International Institute for Strategic Agents Studies. Antonio I'll start with the very basics generally right now how religious a country is Brazil. Well Brazil is a very religious country. People's religion is quite important for their dentists. Mostly although obviously in the big urban centers in the southeast where people are wealthier and more connected to coacher and things this tends to be a bit smaller but resists to a very large Catholic country. There are a lot of. Catholics is by far the majority the Evangelical Population Elation Brazil has experienced tremendous growth in recent decades and it is estimated now that there are about thirty percent of the population identifying themselves as if Angelico but this population is divided in several different nations different churches but these population tends to be extremely conservative -servative in social terms in terms of controversial social freedom issues like gay marriage abortion and other issues. We'll come back to the van Jellicoe presently because they are a relatively recent arrival certainly in the Brazilian political sphere at least to the extent they now operate if we look at the Catholic Church in particular which is as you point out historically the root of Brazilian faith. How politically active or influential? Have they been. The Catholic. Search has been relatively modest or discreet in terms of politics in never officially endorses. Any candidates TASR assumed for itself a role as an actor and a supporting pillar in the more impoverished communities in Brazil Brazil as a country with large areas that are extremely poor and marginalized It is very important in urban areas. Where the poor resort to religion as an escape scape from the realities from the marginalization that the broader society and the broader economy regard them with so it is an important factor in social terms but politically medically? It hasn't had a lot of influence in Brazilian politics at least in this current era of democracy since the mid nineteen eighties. So is it fair to say. Even the evangelical more explicitly politically ambitious in the Catholic Church. was they want to take more direct role in Brazilian politics. Absolutely I believe and have been by far more active and more proactive in seeking political influence the Evangelical priests in their churches especially those of the biggest searching in Brazil such as the Universal Church of God the occasion of your cell to Hanes deals led by Juma do it you must see a do also owns a very large. TV Station in Brazil called record TV and he hasn't being extremely vocal but he has given even some public comments supporting able scenario the far-right candidate that ended up winning the elections now. The president of Brazil and there are several media reports showing how even though the public indoctrination or public mention of candidates and support in the church during ceremonies themselves themselves are quite discreet or sometimes completely absent on the margins of the religious ceremonies in the way that people talk and discuss with each other. They are quite supportive of what is currently the far right movement in Brazil the talk phone crime conservative in social terms so this is a very strong movement. Many Brazilian a majority of the evangelicals showed support for Djabel scenario by some poles seventy percent of Brazilians who identify as evangelical voted full. Oh Bolsheviks what's your sense of which way round the horse and the car were there by which I mean were evangelical voting Wgir Bolsonaro. Because because they think he's the guy always Bolsonaro going out of his way to convince evangelical that he's the guy so the interesting thing. Is that Djabel. Sano is N- aunt and oven jellicoe. He doesn't follow jellicoe religion his Catholic however his wife is of Jellicoe and he has demonstrated several policy positions nations and other philosophical points that are very aligned with evangelical concern so for instance the transfer of the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem Jerusalem. He stated publicly during the campaign than closer to the election. He showed that he wasn't sure about it. And now he continues to tiptoe on that however it was a point that is widely supported by the fans Alecos because of their belief that the Jews should return to Jerusalem and rebuild their temple so at the second coming of Christ would come to believe that is very widespread evangelical community at least in Brazil and other points such as publicly stating certainly in the pass on to some extent the president also stating opposition to gay marriage to the presence of gender and sexual education in schools that evangelical bellicose think is beyond unacceptable for their ultra-orthodox views. Sold these points. jellicoe symbols on auto are very well aligned. There are some voices in the oven. Jellico community that worry about the long term implications abused for the Evangelical Movement as a whole for its future because at the same time that there are very comfortable. Alliances of positions between both scenario and the evangelicals Bono also states some points that are quite violent excellent and points regarding public securities. Such as shooting took you criminal supporting torture off. Criminals suspected criminals and these tend to afflict particularly the poor and particularly poor black men which is also the constituencies the demographics that tend to be more heavily. Evangelical John Jellicoe so it's not a complete harmony of thoughts but so far the social conservatives mobile zone auto and of the Jellicoe movements have become quite aligned. Wind is it a challenge for President Bolsonaro or any Brazilian politician to try to manage the The expectations the hopes and the energies of both the van Jellicoe and the Catholic Church. Are there points of difference between them at all. I believe that it is a challenge to acquire the political political support of these different communities while also attending or respecting the less conservative positions of the rest of the Brazil's population. So the reason why this balance between jellicoe Catholic hasn't been very prominent in recent years. Is that the Evangelical Movement has been quite divided politically whereas the Catholic Church doesn't explicitly get involved in politics. The evangelicals have been involved but in a very fragmented way so they haven't really supported a single presidential candidate or a single political party. Brazil country with around thirty parties represented in Congress and it is is very fragmented and there are evangelicals in many many parties. Do Workers Party that is now. The main opposition the arch enemy of Bozon Otto and his right wing wing movement. The work aspired self aligned itself with the Evangelical so during Duma rousseff and Duma Roussev went back on some policy proposals to provide sexual education gender education schools because of Evangelical Influence Tube. Resilient political fashion diva jellicoe movement. Woman has been quite versatile and adaptive in align itself to whoever is in power in order to increase its influence and tried to block some of the moves against its philosophy and its main driving influences main driving voice has been against social freedom issues abortion gay marriage sexual education schools and things like that so just as a final thought then if as does seem to be the case. Brazilian politics has become more conservative. At least if we think think of that phenomenon as being personified by the current President Dawda extent is that being driven by religious faith whether it is the more traditional oh Catholic faith or the the new genetic evangelical faith. I think a big part of this right-wing shift of Brazil and the growing conservatism servicemen. That has been demonstrated by political leaders is being driven by evangelicals would just saw that the number of evangelical representing Congress rose by ten percent in the lower chamber of Congress in the October elections so their presence in politics has been increasing. It's just not something that is to the dominant can't power. Its shares power with some all the conservative sections so for instance in Brazil there is a faction of Congress that is called BBB so for stands for bullets bowls or cattle and Bible so the agribusiness influence is very strong as well and they also have a conservative view view. Those that support the more freedom to bear arms also tend to align themselves with the social conservatives of Jellicoe so these forces allied lied to themselves the form of important source off conservatives and to some extent swing shift in Brazilian politics Antonio some thank

She was the leader of the mind was very unpopular and actually unto Saturday evening. Everybody was thinking that it would be That the new leader would be We'll have shorts the incumbent Finance Minister and then these two came kind out of the blue and and then won the race. Why do you think that happened? If there was an expectation that it will be a relatively well known relatively mainstream within the Party auty candidate why. Why is this happened If you look at the polls in the membership of the SPD. The majority of membership wants Serb leadership. It's now for the first time dual so it's woman and a man who are more or less leaning the SPD. A membership is very very unhappy about the the costs that the party has gone for many many years they have been in a coalition with a CD you Since two thousand seventeen were inequality before so we have actually seen almost ten years of a coalition between the two big parties and memberships things that Angela Merkel has basically Louis Take away the whole profile of the PD. So all the left leaning politics like minimum wage Gay Marriage image all these things socially progressive but also economically progressive has been Well to the benefit of Mackerel and the junior partner now who the. SPD's has been such a long time has really lost profane and it was every election. Pilings have gone down. Isn't it always as the way though in coalitions that the junior partner doesn't get much of what they want. Yes it is very much a movie scene that in Britain for example with a coalition between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats between twenty and twenty fifteen a lot of the policies were implemented. Were actually ideas by Liberal Democrats but the Conservatives as the biggest party will always very successful to say. Hey that was our success and the same has been happening in Germany the problem for the SPD the is though they if they even now set. Okay we are going to leave the government coalition that will probably not be paid back At the next election because is the sense in Germany that you have been voted in. You have agreed to a coalition. You have to take the responsibility if you're now going going away just because of say kind of selfish party folk was reasons. This is a this is unacceptable and therefore they are between rocking hot place Whether they stay in the coalition which is bad or they leave the coalition which might be even worse. The Christian Democrats have been rebuffing these coals to renegotiate negotiate but in the end if they want to avoid elections next year they're going to have to give in on something they might give into something. I mean we really now in the in the early hours they say nothing room for maneuver and Knowing Angela Merkel she will try to find a way that they may be renegotiate associated some social policies some tax policies that The new as Padilla ship can can get out of this face saving. But as I said before I don't think it's a good option for the SP to cause breakdown of the coalition German business community has reacted already. This morning has set The Cook what isn't government should stop navel-gazing and look at the challenges of the future like digital modernism modernizing gem in digital he'll systems Looking for more progressively into climate change or climate protection and not being so self-focused. So I think both parties have an interest to solve their Their their frustrations and that they are the rows with each other because they will both suffer the pulse. Angela Merkel has already said that you weren't contest the next federal election though it sounds like at this rate had time office maybe ending little sooner than we may have thought it might be the case again if you I think it's something like seventy five percent of the German public says they do not want the coalition to To to end they wanted to continue until September. Twenty twenty one when there is the next regular election federal election and also the WHO does. It's not have any well not strong interest in a in early poll nutty election because they have problems with to decide who they actually really want to run as the successor of America. So they have unagreed come cannonball. WHO's the common defense secretary? And she's also the leader of the city but she's highly unpopular. Actually only two weeks ago. There was a party conference by the CD where she offered to resignation. Because the tensions are so high in the city you so the the city was not ready either to fight a election campaign and therefore I think at the end of the day none of the two big parties has any interest to to eleven addiction. The only party. That hasn't a party that has can have a reason to go funny action at the Greens because the Green Party has the best pulse for a very long time. We were discussing earlier in the program the change in leadership in the F. D. Party as well and you would have thought that those in the political mainstream wouldn't you wanted to create uncertainty in the risk of election at a time when the FDA is trying to build support. Well the I if t is certainly Louis very popular and especially in East Germany but the decision The new leadership now off the AFDC which is even more right-wing sinophobic Lebed leadership. The I mean that remains to be seen how many people continue voting for the AFDC having in mind that the leaders are well. Outspoken Anti antisemites. SINOPHOBIC I think it's because until now the AFC also got a lot of protests voters and. I think those people will think twice if they would want Want to vote for this kind of Party A.

Obama endorses Canada's Trudeau for re-election

"The former US president Barack Obama has urged Canadians to reelect prime minister Justin Trudeau in a tweet backing that Mister Trudeau will welcome as he faces a tough battle in the general election next week the campaign has been dominated my policies but by a series of scandals the BBC's Persian Gulf and has been looking at the impact these scandals of hat on political discourse in Canada twenty nineteen has been the year of the scandal in Canadian politics prime minister Justin Trudeau violated the conflict of interest act when he tried to convince his former Attorney General to help SNC Lavalin avoid a criminal trial photo of Justin Trudeau dressed as a Latin in brown face separate instances have emerged showing Trudeau in black face every sure never actually was an insurance program despite the fact that I've got his biography here this is officially said before entered public life and to work in the private sector as an insurance roping a fourteen year old video of conservative leader Andrew here arguing against gay marriage will help convince voters in the run up to Canada's general election on the twenty first of October news coverage social media and political debate have all been dominated by a series of revelations about party leaders and back benchers alike the popularity of prime minister Justin Trudeau took a serious hit this year when Canada's ethics commissioner ruled that he tried to improperly influence the legal strategy of his Attorney General that seem to kick start a race particularly between Mr Trudeau's liberals and his main rivals in interest yours Conservative Party both sides have attacked each other for failing to expel backbench candidates who tweeted racist or sexist messages in years past one prospective Tory MP has been criticized for a friendship with a far right online media personality accused of being a white supremacist the problem is that instead of supplementing the political policy discussion the focus on muckraking has all too often replaced it here's how Andrew Scheer responded in a televised debate when asked about protecting Canada's interest on a global stage of course I will always stand up for Canada and defend our interests all around the world but Justin Trudeau only pretends to stand up for Canada you know he's very good at pretending things he can't even remember how many times he put black face on it's a noticeable change from the last Canadian election in twenty fifteen when issues like the environment the economy refugee resettlement and the well being of indigenous communities struggling with health care infrastructure and safety took center stage Daniel Rubinstein is an associate professor at Ryerson university in Toronto where he researchers political campaigns and communication definitely I think that the important stuff gets left behind there's not been that much talk about ideas and policy and where the country's going and these kind of big things that we ought to perhaps be interested in and in particular issues of you know indigenous rights and governance and so on sadly I don't think I've ever really got as much attention as they should and even less so when campaigns are driven by things that are not policy related at all the race to rid of damaging details from candidates pass has also led to misinformation earlier this month the Conservative Party issued an official press release demanding to know why Justin Trudeau left his job as a high school teacher several years ago it appeared to be a reference to a widely debunked internet conspiracy theory that suggests Mr Trudeau was sacked because of some severe misconduct it's hard to predict how these various transgressions will influence Monday's vote but there can be little doubt that Canada's politicians have found a new way to tear each other down that report was by peace at girlfriend and you can hear more of pieces series on the Canadian election in the coming days here on the BBC world

"You can learn these horrid skills to prepare you for jobs, but I break with so many conservatives on this because ending so many conservatives get this totally wrong. The liberal arts are essential society is not just a bunch of autumn Atanas making widgets. There is a dignified aspects to society to that is civilization. That is what gives us all the things that we really care about in this world, which are metaphysical our freedom. Our joys are loves that's how we make sense of that. If you lose that you're gonna very crude rough ugly society from Brent, dear Michael. Lately, I've been texting a Christian girl who went cold after we talked about LGBT marriage. I sent it. Well, I don't recognize marriage outside of a man and a woman the government should not be in the business of marriage and try to make it illegal. She believes gay marriage. Should just be illegal. Who is right yours. Brett, you're both wrong. This is not a question of being legal or illegal. The question is what is marriage. This is why the left gets a so wrong either. They misunderstand us or they're intentionally slandering us us. They say you don't like gay people. Because you don't want to redefine marriage. We you talking about the point that we're making is that marriage. Requires sexual difference for all of human history. Marriage has implied sexual difference if sexual difference does not matter to marriage than what is marriage. If it if marriage, which has always been the union of a husband and wives at least one wife sometimes more than one wife. If marriage is not that. And it loses the sense of creating family loses the sense of sexual and spiritual and emotional complementarity that loses the sense of a household. If it loses that sense, and it's just any loving association between people of any sex. Then I don't know. I love my friends. I love my male friends is that not a marriage. Well, you don't have sex. Okay. Well, people have sex with a lot of other people. That's not marriage. What what makes marriage now, I think what? Nice conservatives want to do is they want to say, well I oppose gay marriage because it is a logical impossibility. But I all my I have a lot of gay friends. And I don't want them to think that I'm sort of big it. So let's just get the government out of it. Do you want to get the government out of the definition of murder? I don't wanna get the government out of the definition of taxes. Do you want to get the government out of the definition of township do you want? I mean, the government has to recognize the meaning of words and marriage is the fundamental building block of society, if the government is out of the business of the fundamental building block of society than what is the government. Do what's the purpose of the government? I mean, how does the government relate to society? This is I think in a sensually liberal argument because what liberals the left one us to do is to treat society is just a mass of random individuals all atomised they have no relation to one another. They're fundamentally isolated one one from another parent from child husband from wife cousin from cousin friend from friend. There's no relationships other than the individual and the government, but that isn't true free society exists when we recognize the family is the building block of. And then the relationship of families to other families, the relationship among civic institutions as Alexis de Tocqueville points out the relationship of the municipality to the state and the state to the federal government. Those are are ways to check the tyranny of one over powerful government and away for us to preserve our liberty and preserve or traditional society. The government has to be involved one way or the other especially when it comes to who can adopt kids looking over the welfare of kids so on and so forth. The government is going to have to be involved in some way, and we can either pretend that a word that has a very clear meaning doesn't have a meeting..

"New deal is not about the climate. It's about a revolution changing America permanently. That's what this is. I have to bankrupt us, then they have to rebuild what's left? This is going to be scary. Let me start with Paul in San Diego. Paul welcome to the program. What's on your mind? Yeah. This is it's a naked power grab. Yup. You know, if they can sit there, and they can they can point to some pseudoscience, you know that. This this happens throughout history. There's this appeal to, you know, an apocalypse or or a kind of Armageddon event and religions are basically a centered around the concept shirt, and they're creating a new scientific religion. And remember the show was thirty something. Oh god. Oh, jeez. Louise. Yeah. Yeah. The babysitter should have her own show. She'll be called twenty nothing. Yes. Paul, and she is proof positive that really does take a village to raise an idiot. Yeah. Well, there you go and she's got power, man. She this. This person has power. We need a we do we really need to crowd source this, and we need a people's investigation into how she paid for school who funded her who's funding her the look shift and company wanna look into Trump's everything we the people ought to be looking at a her everything and find out what the story is here because I feel like if we drill down deep enough inside of it. We're gonna find star. Look look at look into her wardrobe. Yep. You're right. And they just look it over. But you know, and this is also a sign that they don't teach basic classics. I mean, the classic retail doesn't understand. She doesn't understand the golden goose. Nope, absolutely, appropriate appropriate billionaires all their money to person who realizes that's nothing. It's it's the eggs that the billionaires. Right. I know this isn't Berkeley lay that pay for everything never worked at. I don't care what she says never worked the Danner life. Never had to make a payroll doesn't understand the idea sacrificed, Paul. Well, said I like the twenty nothing the babysitter. The babysitter of the United States of America. Has has a plan here. And I want to just give you some historical perspective very quickly. Okay. Because this is what's missing in a lot of things. When was gay marriage officially recognized legalized by the supreme court. Do you? Remember what year it was? It was twenty fifteen twenty fifteen that the decision was made at the supreme court to legalize gay marriage. One was the first gay marriage. Homosexual union. Whatever term you want to use. When was that I conducted in the United States of America two thousand four nine hundred sixty nine oh was the first nine hundred sixty nine. So you are talking about a forty five year interval from really the first notion of a gay marriage to it becoming recognized at the federal level and enshrined in in the law of the land. Now understand that there were these things called Boston. Marriages back in the eighteen hundreds and that would be these these committed relationships between women, but I'm talking about the first actual marriage between two gay people was carried out New York City in nineteen sixty nine by by a renegade minister. Right. Who decided they were going to do that? So what are we have there? We we have essentially Forty-six years in terms of the interval between the first and the the final imprimature of the supreme court universal health. Care was first proposed in nineteen twelve as part of teddy Roosevelt's bull moose progressive platform. Nineteen twelve when did when did universal healthcare really get its main boosts. Well, you could argue you don't Medicare in nineteen sixty four you could you could argue the social state that was put together under the new deal Hillary Clinton brought it out into the into the sunlight of day in one thousand nine hundred ninety three but it was ObamaCare in two thousand nine so a little bit less than one hundred years ninety seven years from the first idea. Of universal healthcare under teddy Roosevelt, a progressive Republican until it was a democrat socialist president and Barack Obama who brought it to being in two thousand and nine. Social security was first conceived. In eighteen sixty two auto von Bismarck in Germany. It really got a boost in eighteen hundred nine but the intervening time for social security would actually be seventy years between eighteen sixty two or so and the time that Franklin Delano Roosevelt put it into effect in nineteen thirty five in the United States seventy years. So we have engaged marriage. Forty six years we have in universal healthcare ninety seven years, and we have in in the notion of social security taking root in the United States of America. We have it as a seventy years the first sexual revolution. That would that would lay the foundation for the sexual revolution of the nineteen sixties actually took place in the nineteen twenties. There's evidence that it it really began in the nineteenth century, but but in in a modern incarnation. Really, it was the roaring twenties that saw the first sexual revolution in America. Then you saw the Freudian schools of thinking come into the United States fleeing the oppression of Hitler's Germany and across the nineteen thirties as as a new generation of professors would be educated in the United States to be deployed in a post World War Two academic environment. You'd end up with the sexual social upheaval of the nineteen sixties. So you can say nine hundred and sixty five to nineteen twenty five that's about a forty year run. Here's the important lesson to understand. This is the danger of the babysitter. We laugh off the the babysitter. The babysitter is a joke. She's not serious. She's laying out some crazy ideas that she wrote in crayon on some construction paper, but understand this is the. Very first shot in a socialist revolution. This is this is news cameras showing up to a press conference to hear her crazy ramblings about. About things like the funding for this program to come from community grants and public banks, whatever those are and other public financing a discussion of seventy percent, marginal income tax..

"They're right over there on the shelf has that's the attitude. I've tried to maintain. All right. I'll take one more. There's another gay marriage question here. But why not this is a guy who used to be on the fence about the gay marriage issue finally hearing some sound arguments and logical arguments against same sex marriage. I change my mind, I believe the only reason the government has any say in marriage in the first place as for the protection social development of children. That's not entirely true. It's also for the protection of women the natural consequence of a sexual relationship between a man minimum. The government should not have to give out legal certificates for people who love each other. I find that absurd. If someone who repeatedly states that you stand for gay rights. What is the best argument you have heard from the anti-gay marriage side? And why do you think it fails the best marriage? I've heard from the anti-gay marriage aside is that gay marriages marriage marriage has meant one thing through all of human history. It has a relationship between men and women sometimes a relationship between a man and several women within occasionally a relationship between a woman and several men but always between opposite sex. And so the best argument I heard was that it's not marriage. So why change? It's not right to change the definition the reason that ultimately doesn't work for me. I mean, I feel that if you're talking about sacramental marriage, if you're talking about classical sacramental marriage, we're talking about an unbreakable bond between a man and a woman that is not subject to divorce except in the most extreme situations. That's what you're talking about. Once you have no fault divorce once marriage becomes a kind of provisional relationship, which it became after the sixties when they had no fault divorce to me already changed the definition of marriage. That's why this argument fails once you can walk away from your wife and your kids because you'd like somebody else or you're just not this sexually turned on as you used to be when those in the reasons you can get a divorce and walk out of your marriage. Who cares who gets married with different doesn't make is not marriage. Anyway, I think the churches should be allowed to restrict the people that they married to whoever they feel is sacramental marriage. I think that you know, gay people in government terms should have the right to get. If there are benefits that come with it in there are like tax benefits and things like that. So, you know, I it's it's it's complex because I actually believe that if you're talking about the sacrament of marriage there, I think there is a hierarchy of relationship. I think that the relationship between a man and a woman is central to society in a way, the relationship between two men isn't. I think we have more of an interest in that relationship. We have more of an interest in sex when it can produce children. And so therefore by by corollary, we have more of an interest in any relationship between man and a woman still I think that you the government does not have the right? No, matter what churches have the right? No matter. What God has the right to do. The government. Does not have the right to tell people that because we don't like the way you have or we don't like the way you're attracted to people you have to live your life without the constellation of erotic love the government should not have that power. That's too much damn power for the government to have. All right. I got it. I'm done. I think I'm just going to I think I'm just going to end the show right there. So I can let the nose get in here. But we will be back tomorrow. And that'll be the end. So you want to be there to suck up all the Cleveland? And goodness before the Cleveland is Cleveland this weekend begins. I'm Andrew klavan.

"I am a K mil from the soon to be loose state of Texas. And I have a question about gay marriage. I actually about two and a half years ago married at the time with my best friend, and recently, it's as two months ago was actually told that. I wasn't enough to make him happy. And my question is that we thought for so long to get the quality for marriage, and yet I find a lack of quality in the process of divorce as far as people, even recognizing my marriage are recognizing that I'm in pain are recognizing that sometimes it doesn't work out and relationship that happens to be gay. I'm trying to avoid the stereotypes of I told you so gay people can't be monogamous gay. People can't be monogamous. They can't have a meaningful and loving relationship. Right now, I'm just sort of frustrated, and I need your advice on how to handle this and how to interact with people do sometimes give off this sort of negative energy about it. I I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to you. I I have to say though, and I hope I'm not unintentionally accidentally salting any wounds when I hear the people are breaking up because one or the other both said your not enough to make me happy. It just kind of triggers me. It makes me think of this way in which we do long term relationships in marriage wrong where we're expected to get all things from this person. This other person as one person is burdened with being enough for us in all aspects emotionally, socially sexual intimately and vice versa. We are burdened with being enough everything that person might need socially. Actually, romantically intimately and in reality. Of course, no one person can be all those things or enough of all of those things for any other one person, and we are allowed, and we should look outside the relationship or reach outside the relationship if not for the Saxon. I'm not necessarily talking about everyone has to have an open relationship everyone else to have outside sexual contact. But we should be allowed to reach outside the relationship a little bit to get a little bit more of perhaps the emotional support that we need are the.

"That's California's next leader Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor and Lieutenant governor will be sworn in on Monday and senior politics editor Scott Shafer explains why we can expect him to be a very different kind of governor in January of two thousand four Gavin Newsom had been mayor of San Francisco for less than a month when he traveled to Washington DC. The president of the United States. Newsom was sitting at the capitol listening to President George W Bush deliver his state of the union speech when he was struck by this passage near the end if judges insist on forcing their arbitrary will upon the people the only alternative left to the people would be the constitutional process. Our nation must defend the sanctity of marriage. Newsom return to San Francisco vowing to do something in response the way he said it, and it was the way that people that I met after the speech a referred to quote, unquote, the homosexual agenda and just seared in my mind and need to do something. I didn't know what then a week or two later it manifested. He ended up making a bold some would say reckless decision. His policy director at the time. Was Joyce new stat t decided that what he really wanted to do was to allow all people to get married and not be required that it'd be just a man and a woman in February of two thousand four same sex marriage wasn't really on the gay community's political agenda. But when mayor Newsom ordered the city to begin issuing marriage licenses hundreds of couples from all over the state and nation lined up to get married, and we kept city hall open all weekend long for a long weekend of beautiful happy. Marriages the gay marriage issue. Put Newsom on the Nash. Radar to both admirers and critics the governor at the time. Arnold Schwarzenegger said unless it was stopped. It could lead to riots in the streets after weeks of marriages, California courts, put a stop to the weddings. But it took four years for the case to make its way up to the state supreme court ultimately in two thousand eight California's highest court ruled four to three that preventing same sex couples from marrying violated the state constitution at city hall. Newsom took a victory lap with language that came back to haunt him about away as California goes. So goes the rest of the nation. This doors wide open. Now, it's gonna happen.

"That's California's next leader Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor and Lieutenant governor will be sworn in on Monday and senior politics editor Scott Shafer explains why we can expect him to be a very different kind of governor in January of two thousand four Gavin Newsom had been mayor of San Francisco for less than a month when he traveled to Washington DC. The president of the United States. Newsom was sitting at the capitol listening to President George W Bush deliver his state of the union speech when he was struck by this passage near the end if judges insist on forcing their arbitrary will upon the people the only alternative left to the people would be the constitutional process. Our nation must defend the sanctity of marriage. Newsom return to San Francisco vowing to do something in response the way he said it, and it was the way that people that I met after the speech a referred to quote, unquote, the homosexual agenda and just seared in my mind and need to do something. I didn't know what then a week or two later it manifested. He ended up making a bold some would say reckless decision. His policy director at the time. Was Joyce new stat t decided that what he really wanted to do was to allow all people to get married and not be required that it'd be just a man and a woman in February of two thousand four same sex marriage wasn't really on the gay community's political agenda. But when mayor Newsom ordered the city to begin issuing marriage licenses hundreds of couples from all over the state and nation lined up to get married, and we kept city hall open all weekend long for a long weekend of beautiful happy. Marriages the gay marriage issue. Put Newsom on the Nash. Radar to both admirers and critics the governor at the time. Arnold Schwarzenegger said unless it was stopped. It could lead to riots in the streets after weeks of marriages, California courts, put a stop to the weddings. But it took four years for the case to make its way up to the state supreme court ultimately in two thousand eight California's highest court ruled four to three that preventing same sex couples from marrying violated the state constitution at city hall. Newsom took a victory lap with language that came back to haunt him about away as California goes. So goes the rest of the nation. This doors wide open. Now, it's gonna happen. Whether you like it or not then freeze whether you like it or not was seen by many is arrogant and disrespectful.

"We should learn our lesson from Gandalf because receded too many important fights to the other side for too long. We've talked about this before abortion. It was too divisive. It was to mean, it was too sensitive stop talking about it. And so we did. And look where that got us. Sixteen sixty million babies aborted. Besides a fetus, isn't even human. So what's your problem? I mean, that's how bad the discussion. God gay marriage. First of all, I don't care. I couldn't care less. What you doing your bedroom? Or who you love? I don't care. And we all want to be tolerant bright, but we don't want to be considered homophobic, or or hateful. Certainly. So we just we we keep our mouths shut about important things. The question I used to hear all the time was if gay people want to marry so what how does that affect my marriage? Well, look where we are now since the supreme court ruling and the victory for same sex couples at certainly hasn't ended there that was just the beginning. There is an insistence that we not only accept same sex marriage. But that we as Christians stopped believing the way we do or did. We need to not just accept but we need to embrace. We need to promote. The ultimate goal hasn't been reached. And the ultimate goal was spoken by a gay activist. If you years ago, I am I agree. It's a no brainer that have the right to marry. But I also think equally that it's a no brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. So. Mary should not exist that my brain some trouble. And part of wide causes trouble is because fighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we're going to do with marriage when we get there because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change and that is a lie. The institution of marriage is going to change an should change. And again, I I don't think it should exist. And I don't like taking part in in creating fictions about about my life. That's sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago. You know, I have three kids who have five parents, more or less. And I don't see why they shouldn't have five parents legally. I don't see why we should choose to those parents and make them into sanction couple. Okay. Well, there's somebody who has just opened about the, you know, the radical agenda. And then, you know, the gender identity thing being jammed on our throats now we're supposed to deny science in reality at except that there's I don't know ninety genders one hundred ninety genders a thousand ninety I dunno agendas fluid, and we were haters if we object to men going into women's bathrooms where our daughters, and our wives are or or were haters, if we think that natural men competing against women in women's sports is probably not a good thing. Schools in Britain, our teaching that everyone can have a menstrual period. I can't when a six year old supposedly wants to change their gender where we're expected to applaud and cheer and call that brave, and and wonderful and tell the parents out brave and wonderful inclusive in an open minded, they are. I mean, the momentum of the G Q A plus movement is spending credible to behold. It's just unbelievable. Whereas religiously we've got no protection anymore. Christian business owner can't object being forced to participate in an event. They have a spiritual problem with sorry. That's tough. Just gonna have to deal with it. So. Yeah, politics. I'm just I have a hard time caring about it. Now. But these other issues. Really have to. Somewhere. We've got to draw the line, right? There has to be a red line somewhere. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. And then speaking of the transgender movement. You can't if you're a if you're a person who is born a man, and you're still a man and you want to play a transgender part. You can't do that. What are they SIS?.

"Get crazy. Yeah. I mean, you think about it Indiana last time two thousand seventeen we pass what is called a biennial budget. And that means we pass a budget for for two years. Thirty two billion dollars thirty two billion dollars in the in the last biennial budget two thousand seventeen it's going to go up again this year. And so you better bet that everybody and their brother is going to be hanging out at two hundred west Washington street fight for there's obvious are going to be fighting for their special interest. The donor class is going to be fighting for their special interests. And after the legislators take care of those folks, maybe they'll get around to doing something for you. This is where this is where the silly season starts to happen because people have access to other people's money. And especially when you're talking billions upon billions of dollars a whole lot of shenanigans tend to take place. And we've talked about it all last week when I was in for Tony. We talked about some of the various key issues. The legislature is going to be facing because there are several hot button topics that not only go to your liberty and freedom and how much control we as a state are willing to allow our government to enact over us as law abiding citizens that are doing things that aren't harming anyone. But we're also going to see how much Indiana, this legislative session will show us how much Indiana's evolved as a society and one of those points, we talked about it at length last week in terms of medical marijuana about we very clearly laid out. Why governor Holcomb and speaker Brian Bosma are so against medical marijuana. The big pharma Eli Lilley has given them fifty three thousand five hundred dollars in donations or the past several years. Donations five thousand dollars and up. Those guys are bought and sold by this though. Those guys have a financial interest in not moving medical marijuana forward. But the medical marijuana conversation. I was thinking about this driving into work today is very similar to where we were with gay marriage just four or five years ago. I was working at the Indian state auditor's office and was on the ground floor when the the fight over whether or not to send a constitutional amendment to the people devote on marriage is between a man and a woman in twenty thirteen and into two thousand fourteen was taking place. And I think about where we are at now in terms of how our society accepts gay marriage from where it was just five or six years ago, certainly ten years ago. Ten years ago, you had both major party candidates, Republican and democrat sang marriage was between a man and a woman fast forward to the most recent election. Both candidates are saying love who you wanna love be miserable. Who you wanna be miserable with none of the government's business and that reflected as politicians often do a-changing how society viewed gay marriage, and I think most people many people anyway. View it kind of similar do the way. I do that marriage is not the business of.
