"Hi finished ahead this week we are replaying today InFocus episodes about racism in society. Yesterday, we began with America's response to George Floyd Staff. Today, we're remembering how those protests spread across the world and into the UK where the uprising was, of course, about George Floyd and unjust policing in America. Though so very much about issues here in the. UK from wind rush to Granville to covert and a big debate about are racist past.

The George Soros Saga: Antisemitism, Conspiracies, and Influence
"Billion-a-year Fillon therapist mega donor George Soros has long been the villain of conspiracy theories. He has also been a target of politicians and pundits on the right who resent his fierce opposition to George W Bush and Donald. Trump, they also object to his philanthropy support of liberal causes support most clearly defined by his mega donations. Earlier this month, the open society foundations, the ill philanthropic group founded by Mr Soros announced it would invest one hundred, fifty million dollars in grants for black lead, racial justice groups, and another seventy million toward local grants for criminal justice reform. The announcement came amid protests in the streets and calls for racial justice sparked by the murder of George. Floyd. Minneapolis those protests, some of which have turned violent have fuelled critics to view those donations as efforts to foment anarchy and back government corruption emily. Tamken. saw these critiques and conspiracy theories already building steam and two thousand sixteen which inspired her to research and write the influence. Of Soros, her latest Book Emily Welcome. Thank you so much for having me on the show so far listeners. Let's take a step back and start with WHO is George Soros not who the conspiracy theorists say he is but who is he really and what causes does he support and why? George. Is a Hungarian born American billionaire he is very influential in three realms the realm of finance, the rubber philanthropy, and the realm of politics in finance. He was a very famous and successful hedge fund manager. He's maybe the most famous and successful currency speculator in the history of finance, and then you know in the nineteen seventies after making a lot of money, he decides to start giving away some of that money to the cause of what he calls open society. The title comes the Name Open Society comes. From this book by Karl. Popper who was Soros's tutor at the London School of Economics and basically the premise of open society and its enemies is that this gross over simplification but basically, the premise is that you know neither you nor I can really know the truth. So what we're supposed to do is all of us together in a society come together and we discuss and debate, and we try to reach this perfect understanding and practice that's meant giving students scholarships. It's meant setting up a university in. It's meant you know after the dissolution of the Eastern Bloc in Suva Union paying for Internet for various government ministries and trying to connect people to information. He's also a big an influential figure in politics beginning in two thousand four. In the United States, he decided that he really wanted George W Bush out of office and became a major political donor. So I think you know I WANNA be careful to make clear that the political spending is separate from thirty but because he's this major philanthropic and also major political donor and because the political donations or not exclusively, but do tend to be four Democrats in liberal causes. I think that that colors the perception of some not just on the right but particularly, some people on the right in the United States. So source is a Hungarian. Jewish emigrant right tell us more about his upbringing and how it informed his philanthropy and political activism nineteen thirty Hungary is the Inter war period between World War One and World War Two prior to World War One Jews in the Hungarian part of the austro-hungarian Empire were more assimilated than many other Jews in Europe. They really saw themselves. Many of them saw themselves as Hungarian were part of the Hungarian national project report of this Lake Glittering Budapest life world we're one happens Hungary is on the losing side they lose a lot of their territory in the tree of and all, which is like the austro-hungarian version of the treaty of Versailles. And for a variety of reasons, the Jews are scapegoated for this. So you have these he's born into this world where you start having a Jewish quotas laws meant to persecute Jews, and this is. Even, before World War Two, his father has them changed their name from shorts to Soros to seem less obviously Jewish in this increasingly hostile environment his father had previously like escaped. Prison camp in Siberia during World War, one and made his way back to Hungary during the Russian civil war. So he knew something about survival. World to comes and there's there's not the occupation and there's the Arrow Cross which is like the Hungarian variant. He sees his father as this great protective figure who helped other people the father. was procured bull forged embargo documents of the Soros family and friends in front of friends could hide out is Christians during during the time, but he also he's persecuted for being Jewish he then after world, War Two is living under a certainly not the same kind of persecution but under a repressive oppressive socialist regime and I think that this is two things one, it makes this concept of society where we can all debate and discuss very attractive and I also think that for him because he was persecuted on the basis of his ethnicity religion. That inspired in him. The understanding that it was important to try to help whatever group was caught under the wheel at a given moment with this history and background in mind. IS IT ANTI Semitic to criticize Mr Soros and the causes he supports I'm not saying the criticizing Soros is. Anti Semitic I think he's done things that you can criticise part of the reason that I wrote this book is that it should be what he is actually done and the money that he's actually spent not money that he has never spent and thinks he has never going to do that to me is when it trips over into in antisemitic conspiratorial.
Boston - Gov. Baker Announces Massachusetts Police Reform Legislation
"In the aftermath of George Floyd's death and calls for police reform legislation has been filed the governor Charlie Baker says will improve public safety and increase transparency and accountability the legislation as a product of several months worth of dialogue with members of the black and Latino legislative caucus and with public safety officials across the Commonwealth this is not the first time a regular meetings with the Caucasus produce either a new program or proposal we meet with the carcass quarterly and believe this standing meeting is preserves many positive results for the Commonwealth to work with the caucus on corrections criminal justice addiction housing homeownership state purchasing construction and economic development and public safety and we're very grateful for their insight and their collaboration over the last five and a half years the bill or filing today is the first step in a process that we hope will create a package of reforms that accomplishes the goals that we all share we began working with the carcass on this effort almost a year ago largely because Massachusetts is one of only a very few states that does not have a statewide certification program for law enforcement and we need one the murder of George Floyd Minneapolis at the hands of police officers made clear that now is the time to get this done Mr Floyd's death sparked outrage sadness in a fortified call for justice and equality from every corner of the United States people have marched gathered and put forward policies and ideas to address the injustices that still clearly exist for communities of color everywhere there are no easy answers and improving a lot law enforcement is only one piece of this process but I think we've put together a solid set of reforms that everyone including the law enforcement community and the folks who are here with us today can work on to advance this bill together the legislation basically does three things first it creates a certification program for law enforcement officers that must be renewed every three years this is consistent with our Massachusetts certifications and other professions like medicine education social work and a host of other highly skilled critically important positions maintain excellence it will also create a database of certified officers ensuring that those officers training and conduct records are available to their current and future employers members of the public will also be able to access certain information about police officers including their certification status second it creates a process with community involvement for decertifying a police officer taking that certification away from individuals who do not live up to their training or their oath officers have been found to use a choke hold for example or other forms of excessive force uses of force would be automatically decertified an officer would also be automatically decertified if they fail to intervene if they witness a fellow officer violating these standards and third it creates incentives for advanced law enforcement training and education focusing on de escalation community building collaboration human rights and bias here in Massachusetts we currently have a strong forward looking approach to training and education and thanks in part to leaders like state police colonel Chris Mason and countless chiefs across Massachusetts we in many ways are ahead of other states with respect to training and education the big gap as we lacked a certification program to instill dated day accountability and transparency in the system we have this bill will create a more modern more transparent and more accountable system for law enforcement training will ensure the men and women who cannot live up to the high standards we expect them to uphold do not stay on the force and it will give departments the tools that they need to build the community relationships the name of that trust then I had the pleasure of getting to know countless police officers that put on that uniform for all the right reasons and tragically I've seen many lose their lives doing it it's a hugely important and difficult job and this bill is not about choosing sides and digging in this bill is about giving the law enforcement community the training and the resources that they need to serve which in turn yields high caliber public service for our communities it will also enable us all law enforcement public officials and especially the citizens of Massachusetts the separate those who protect and those from correct answer from those who don't the daily injustices to people of color experience are not addressed easily or quickly and certainly not with a single piece of legislation we have lots of work left to do but I want to say thank you again to the carcass for your support and your input on many issues over the course of the last five and a half years especially on this one and let me close by just saying the session ends on July thirty first it is critically important the by the time that session ends we have a certification process that can stand up to the integrity creativity imagination and aspirations of the people here in Massachusetts the governor referring to the black and Latino legislative caucus

"To bottom a running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now I about knocked about passed out and he's calling for the indictment and but and the death penalty for the murders of George Floyd Minneapolis and I I get what Weiss is happening couple things one the policies have failed they failed magnificently horribly in the past fifty to one hundred years so the sentencing our policies have failed as Liberal Democrats we're going to go the other direction they quickly blame someone else and since most of the police and fire and teachers in these so called institutionally racist organizations in large measure cities are you are in unions Democrats would hate the idea of holding union members accountable for bad behavior whether it's in the post office the fire department or teachers they don't do that and the media never asked the questions a big city mayors why have your policies failed miserably are you in charge do you appoint the head of the police chief do you appoint the superintendent of schools to do you are you responsible for the hiring the training and the retention of every cop in Minneapolis where are you in charge of air fry the blouse you are you in charge of the city of New York how come these incidents take place and most of the time as we said before and we'll say it again the Wall Street journal heather McDonald said that a a police officers is eighteen and a half more times to be killed by a black male than vice versa eighteen and a half times more likely and so those are the facts doesn't make a racial doesn't mean law enforcement whatever it is just statistically those are facts you're twice as likely to be killed as a white man by cops than a black person is twice as likely but they're not reported so no one knows what's going on in my little city is Cincinnati in the last twenty four hours there were two African American males killed by other African American males I don't know their names I it's one of those run of the mill things that happens and the liberals can't use it to advance their cause so the names are not known every year in America there seven eight thousand black men who kill other black men do you know any of their names we know the names of the other Freddie gray's and the Trayvon Martin's in the area gardeners and the Michael brown's and the George Floyd's because they're used by the media to advance a cause well this is going on the big city liberal mayors simply get out there Cape and perform a matador as far as their responsibility for the failures of their policies but when Shaun king a black lives matter says incredibly Democrats from top to bottom are running the cities with the worst police brutality in America right now someone should take note of that and I just did thank some calls coming up in about an hour and a half is when I'll route later on as Dr Gerald lemaire to talk about the what's going to happen remember the third at cetera and now let's go to a gene in Michigan Jane in Michigan welcome to the bill Cunningham show gene how are you I'm pretty good how bout you it's a great night to be an American please go ahead you know I was watching I you know I watch fox news and CNN and MSNBC because I want to see every angle and see all these protesters talking about how they're going to stay out there as long as it takes that's because they're getting six hundred dollars a week not to work you know if you don't have to go to work yes you can be out there protesting the six hundred dollars but it would have to get a job and there would be a lot less people out on the street well also you might know to Susan rice who work with Obama for so many years is blaming the Russians and that she's I would be surprised to learn that the Russians are finding it in some way shape or form so I'm my source for that is Susan rice who lied about Benghazi but you have a top Obama administration official saying with wolf Blitzer the Russians are finding unrest in this country and then you have the extra six hundred Bucks a week which is you get the four hundred Bucks of regular unemployment as about a thousand Bucks a week through the end of July and so what the hell when I have bomber top foreign policy official says the Russians may be funding the unrest I have no reason to doubt or do you know nope you know we're it's it's crazy out there you know the major I think there are some simple things because they were talking about how people are carrying backpacks in with bricks and rocks and bottles with Molotov cocktails in an instant why didn't he just stop letting anybody carrying a backpack and well the other thing there's pre positioned bricks and incendiary devices put along certain routes to be used by the riders and those who plunder these innocent business owners and that is for not as coordinated that is planned I'm willing to accept I haven't said this a lot but I think Susan rice's on something that's there is Russians and Chinese communist and antifa and George Soros types who want to dismantle this government by any means necessary whenever something occurs they whip people into a frothy used the media to get it done they pre positioned their assets and and then they find the riders that's what Susan rice says I believe you're right and I think she's right for a change because god knows that you know tell us on the news that we should be honoring this man when he was you know I need to set that is full of you know methamphetamines into an email and he was trying to cheat store owners by passing bad checks well you know I don't think he should have died the way he did and I believe justice should be served but I don't think I need to honor that man Jean thank you for your call say this it's not been well reported about his criminal record George Floyd's and it's really not relevant because if he was filled with Fenton all in math and god knows what is criminal record is on the web anyone can look for it look at it it's not good having said that he was tortured and killed I'm a little cluttered claustrophobic I could not imagine having two or three cops on my body with one knee drilling my face into the pavement and the fact that he's had somewhat of a checkered criminal past to me is irrelevant to the murder charge because even if you have the criminal history George Floyd you're going to be arrested for a diminished crime that's it doesn't mean you're gonna be tortured to death by Minneapolis police different issue I mean I I've as many my black bodies lawyers and judges the African American and they all personalize this and say that could have been me and the answer is yes that could have been and it's possible that officer challenge because they worked in the same place off duty may have known George Floyd they worked in the same facility no no one knows and I was certainly certainly officer Jalpa knows a fight he was had an axe to run against George Floyd to me all that's irrelevant it you don't have police imposing sentences on individuals of the death penalty and torture someone to death the way George Floyd was tortured to death and that there's no responsibility and I know that's kicking around the internet I've read some of the reports about his previous criminal history and to me that is irrelevant it doesn't matter even in individuals with a criminal history even those on fentanyl or methamphetamine have they have rights not to be killed by the officer who takes them into custody you know what I'm saying go to a see saw in Oklahoma than Dave in Colorado say so in Oklahoma welcome to the bill Cunningham show and see so go ahead nice talking to you again despite the third time in two years I got to talk to you about that see so you go at the moment Sooners and cowboys Arnold Porter gale Boise Gopal and by the way I love senator Tom cotton and what he put in the new York times it was it was so honest that it because the editorial opinion editor to resign today that guys I mean Tom cotton is the con is senator I really he to me is very impressive he was very impressed the man almost you know will work in a hospital here Dr military just bottom physical with my day well I could I could learn how you can very well Kerr worked over nineteen pages what can you tell me how many have what percentage of patients are in the hospital I'm sure we don't really we just got him all out we had we we we we had about one a week coming here not not allowed really exciting thing about life and shall we say you were not overwhelmed no not really because the body is it will be like one big circle just horrible round and round in circles no question about it but but this tho it is thing was oversold and under delivered and thank god it was I'm not happy with the fact the experts are all wrong and most of the deaths took place in nursing homes and other facilities about time I'm glad they were wrong I'm glad they were way off from their predictions in fact I'm a look up now for you the number of deaths in Colorado for one hundred here we go there were twenty six deaths in Colorado so far as to six PM tonight twenty six deaths per one hundred thousand of those fourteen or nursing homes so in the general population in Colorado that is twelve deaths per one hundred thousand that's not too many well I was so sad about it my mom and my mother all are both in a nursing home and may the one main power lines were not allowed to visit because you just go with my tiny well there ought to be a way to make that happen you can wash your hands put on a mask but one on your mom stay six feet away it is so sad to have our moms dads and grandparents die alone the nursing homes around strangers with tubes down their throat and they can't see their children their grandchildren that is sad and I think you could make it happen in a safe way bike loving everyone masking everyone shielding everyone and let your grandma see you before she meets her maker right and I want to say one thing about the cylinder fail we were taken to me when they were they the national anthem I think that's going to be a disgrace to our American pride it was gonna be a biz Grayston failures and to the people who already started and to those who died because those are my heroes right there and when you take me to the flag the best described in our country Cecil thank you and I'll say this everyone has the right to freely express their opinions without punishment for anything short of hate speech I speeches between the twenty the twenty yard line left or right sometimes you get past that to incite violence but just as Colin Kapernick had the right freedom of speech so does my last caller Cecil he's got the right to freedom of speech and so what drew Brees dead and now his wife is apologizing for him Britney Britney breeze is apologizing for her husband soon as the issue that condemnation of those who don't to disrespect the flag or country which is a mainstream position among many the weather in criticisms on drew Brees was so great he quickly backtracked and now his wife is emotional and crying and she's upset about the criticisms claiming white privilege and all that kind of stuff groveling a grovelling apology and I won't stop was drew Brees wanted to become a broadcaster next year the year after Monday Night Football it is the leader of New Orleans where the team is seventy percent black and I would say ninety five percent or more of the players in the National Football League who are black feel exactly the way the left wing liberal media feels about this incident and George Floyd's murder was awful continues to be awful it was unjustified and the fact that he had some difficulties in the past and the criminal justice system does not mean you should be killed everyone has the right but last week brace came under fire for his opinion on players kneeling and his wife now saying the same thing she said quote we are the problem I write this with tears in my eyes and hope you all can hear our hearts so Britney braces taken up for her man let's continue now the line becomes available eight six six six four seven seven three three seven and let's not focus tonight on George voices past let's focus on the fact that he was wrongfully killed by rogue cops that's the problem it was an instant info is institutional racism why did note in charge of the institution and Minneapolis stopped a long time ago continue with more bill Cunningham the great American with you every

For eight minutes forty six seconds and you know the meaning behind that. It's going to be silence, which is a crazy thing for a radio station to do. That's not what we do.

We're not going to do it all the way until three because people would lose the meaning and say my, God. I don't even know what they're doing.

"An unarmed suspect in a forgery case. If you're just a normal citizen, you can't possibly begin to understand all of the intricate sort of esoteric edicts that determine why the police do what they do, which is not a law supposed to work right like as a citizen, the whole point of following the law is the law supposed to be. Within your comprehension and so you watch something like again either the George Floyd video or You know the coughing of the CNN crew in the fact that it's just very hard from a basic citizen perspective to understand what the police are doing that to me. Just sort of underscores how out of touch or how much distance there is between the police. In the people, the police are theoretically accountable, too. Because, so much of what they do in these videos is is just absolutely inscrutable. Yeah there's It's impossible. I mean I think that's what and this not to cutting buddy needs slack. There are probably some well-intentioned. Out there, who when they've seen all these videos of police violence in the past. That's part of the disconnect for them because they do live in a world where the actions of police are mostly comprehensible. Right because the police don't fuck with them ever. The police are a very like with the exception of like speeding tickets on the highway, or not a big part of their life, and so to see. To see a black guy getting arrested in whatever else, there's the assumption that what happened before the cameras started rolling. There's an explanation for all this right because it's not their interaction with the police is not inscrutable. You see something like this on TV and. I. It's actual. Will its meaningfulness I I'm not quite there on I. Don't I don't feel like I. Know during St Felix Beautiful piece in The New Yorker about it that was. That that dealt with a lot of this, too about like what the what CNN's broadcast actually means to these protests, and how this? How the how the arrest played against that backdrop But you're right, it's it's. It's just really hard. I mean it's era. It's screwed ability of the whole thing it doesn't make. It doesn't make any sense, and it's really hard. Serve to wrestle with. The CNN correspondent name was Omar Jimenez.

"And yet. which talks about the futility the seeming futility of that process right, the unaccountability of that process and the and the thing with the blasios daughter was absolutely incredible. Yeah, just absolutely incredible. I do want to circle guys back to trump for a second. It was amazing image of Donald Trump literary imaging. Anyway in today's New, York Times on Friday night. You had protesters near the White House. Donald rushed to the underground bunker. The Times reports that used when there's a threat of a terrorist attack and from there, and from his metaphorical bunker in the rest of the white. House, he is tweeting things like law and order. And there's this joke. Right that newspapers are always saying trump is quote increasingly isolated? We May. All caps she said US, law and order tweet. From the bunker, we may have actually reached Nick Sonian isolation. Really have Sunday night and then Sunday night last night, they turned off all the exterior lights to the White House late at night. After which NBA writers carpet tweeted handling protests against police brutality across the country like you don't want anymore, trick or treaters. At your front door what do we make of trump's? Just really complete physical absence, if not total digital absence during the last several days wasn't there like it's for him in the sense that immediately before they turn the lights off. He was trying to solve this by talking Shit Right. He was trying to solve it by doing the whole like I wish him. Protesters would show up my Maga-. GUYS ARE GONNA. Show up in meet. You guys out there and they're going to be bigger than you. that's the thing that actually seems characteristic of trump is that he's he's. Tried to diametrically opposed approaches to this. He's tried the really dramatic tough guy and he's tried the. I'm just to go into my bunker and blame the governor's and hope this source itself out with military force Yeah I just think it says a lot about how? I think apart from processing things in terms of who he thinks doing. Whatever will help him in November I just. This is the kind of moment where trump is not interested in. Being a political leader. In the way that one might want him to try to be because again, people weren't happy with Obama during. The by size matters matters protests. They weren't happy with the Obama Administration Obama. Was a really. Ambivalent guy in you know, he fell at the end of the day. Some responsibility to sort of be that express those formal. Lawn order perspectives of you know we don't condone X Y and Z. But even Obama I think it's just lake. At least Obama tried to thread the needle. That trump is just he's just. He's not the window. That's just what he does. He always in a moment where you would ideally WanNa, see somebody with some real conviction in some real sense of. moral clarity like doesn't have moral clarity about anything. So you just get this kind of. It's like he's trying out material. In front of a microphone, he's doing. Stand up material, but there's no moral clarity there and. I don't think anybody expects there to be I. Mean even even judging by his own history, and isn't whatever the Trumpian the most the most pro-trump metric you could come up with as it does seem like he's. Feel like he's. He might be trying at material, but he's screaming into just vacuum more than ever right because as isolated as he is. It just seems like. There's no audience for this right and there's no. There's no test market like people out on the street. You know people are living. This and trump is locked himself in a closet. So I mean, it's it. It just seems so. It just seems so beside the point. I get what he's doing I guess, but it's like if you you really feel like if you have nothing to say and no interest in saying anything than you just log off, you know I mean it's it's I mean I? Know doesn't help anything to say it on this podcast, but it just it's a can't get passed it yet. Tom skokie tweeted at least now we have the answer to what if the pet goat lasted an entire weekend? furring of course through George W Bush. Couple of stages of the trump reaction, there were the formal remarks. He gave in the Rose Garden on Friday when it looked like he was going to say something about this. And instead he just talked about leaving the World Health Organization and then left without taking any questions. Then he did switch to twitter on Friday and calling the protesters in Minneapolis, thugs quote unquote using that now infamous formulation when the looting starts, the shooting starts phrase. It was quickly traced back to Miami. Police chief Walter Headley in nineteen, sixty, seven and George Wallace in his sixty eight presidential campaign. went back to that well one more time when protesters started got close to the White House on Friday and he said they were GonNa be greeted, but with the most vicious dogs and most ominous weapons I have ever seen. That's people would have been really badly. Hurt us, so there was amazed by this one goes, but what both of you guys are saying from the Washington, post it says trump in some of his advisors calculated that he should not speak to the nation, because he had nothing new to say, and had no tangible policy or action to announce yet. I mean that's wise. That's the wisdom can. Can we find out who was giving him that advice? And then just as we were coming onto this podcast today, he's then talking to on a conference call to the National Governors, and in ramping back up the aggression quote, you have to dominate. Trump said if you don't dominate, you're wasting your time. They're going to run over you. You'RE GONNA. Look like a bunch of jerks jerks. You have to dominate..
