"You Really WanNa know. You don't want maybe you found out there for you But let's talk more about the Papa Follow Up. here's here. Here's a headline or an album of all the headlines. Now you know Papa. John came on the show and I think he's talked about a lot of interesting things he talked about. Being extorted blackmailed A conspiracy to oust him from the company and yet all the all the fricken headlines are the same papa. John's founder didn't EAT FORTY PIZZAS AND THIRTY S. I had forty. Ps How is it the headline Stupid Papa? John admits he didn't actually eat. Forty I cannot believe that that is the headline Papa. John Founder Reveals the truth. He didn't really eat. Forty PIZZAS IN THIRTY DAYS. And they all chose that shocking. There's the best one here it's A. This is the best one papa. John Reveals that he lied to America. I didn't actually eat for pizzas and thirty days. You mother fuckers either the whole country which I thought this was like. Oh we're the interview. I thought that I was losing my mind. Like how is this the line and I asked some people don't stars who listen to it Like Andrew Okay. And he listened to the podcast and he said he had the same reaction because it was like there. Are some meat there right sad. You eight forty pizzas. No you was a regular but I called him out on that too right. Yeah I was like dude that means you had forty pizzas the article. It's just a stupid this incredible story to Andrew. If he's listening by the way yeah. He's a designer great guy But to me it seems like wanted those sentences that are obviously kind of like you. Just you don't mean it literally forty pieces in thirty days. It's not humanly possible. If I like the third day of eating pizza in a row like that I think I might skin was started fault my body but some of the articles were like yet the host age three called him out out and didn't let it slide had museum. Even Klein said hard hitting journalist so good about that that Newsweek. Oh and then and then Papa schnatter after day after podcast sold another huge chunk so I was like what I wonder. That's Papa just made sixty three million. That's a good one million shares at sixty three dollars twenty four cents and made sixty three million dollars the day after podcast so hey not a bad week for Bob a turns me on Nice. What what did he say that about context? Something something about a good pizza probably data so no one that turns me on business or about pizza. Can't remember Y- Good for Papa. He still owns one point. Eight million shares. Man It's a lot of guys riches fog. Now it's crazy. Papa is like we can't even comprehend how Richie is yet like Michael Bloomberg who? I'm seeing his ads this guy. I don't think there's ever been a media. Buy like this in the history of humankind. I don't yet he. He's like the tenth or just Kinda world he's got like Like fifty billion or something like that gets closer to sixty Alex sixty billion. Papa doesn't have one billion is close but Bloomberg closer to a billion than half in the words of the Grey Papa but Bloomberg sixty billion. He has sixty times more wealth but is is is not just throwing it all away like it has no chance does he do. He's point he's trying to pull really pretty good in someplace. Going up. Eighteen percent is worth. I mean I I. I'm GonNa talk about that because you got. You may have seen that. He did all these meam buys. He bought a hat all these pages which was just outrageous which we'll talk about that but he's like getting everywhere he's on. Tv He's on Youtube. He's on the radio. He's on the main pages. He's every found. I'm surprised it's not like on airplanes outside like trailing behind as the last frontier the air just sent you a breakdown of his AD spending. He's spent Almost three times as much as all of the other candidates combine on advertising including trump. Not just the other. Democrats including trump and all the other democrats. He spent three times as much as he has an unlimited budget. Three hundred million dollars which is almost which is like. Oh let's say half a papa. John's worth that is like a hundred bucks to Bloomberg. That's all adjusts on media by the last quarter we should all go. Go into that business like. That's what I'm saying the meeting. Every every four years these fucking media companies are just making so much money from this yet you know like I donated thousand dollars to Bernie Sanders and endorsed and I. I was like this is going to go to bind commercials because ultimately just paying more rich people's at a problem. Danko had I mean who knows where the dollars your specific dollars go but I mean there's also campaign staff and canvassers and there's a lot of things besides advertising but yeah I mean at least percentage of it is going to go to a company sure but at least Sanders is actually by Funded by people right. So it's poor. People funneling all their money to rich asked media companies. No well it's not like the other guys who get millions from the call cock broader brother. I feel Bloomberg's funded by people to just one person can't be used people. Well at least I don't have to give him money faulk. At least you can buy his own adds money. Do people spend people saying that? Is like a defensive. Him is like oh well he spent his own money. So he's not beholden to anybody and it's like yeah exactly. He's not beholden to you like well. The money doesn't have to do with that. The President I mean most presidents. Aren't there too. I don't mean it in the sense of making money. No but but that's but because he's rich doesn't mean that he's not beholden to the constituents. I mean he's the same duty as any president. I mean on paper. You're right. Yeah I see people wondering if he should be allowed to spend this much on on campaigning. Well the best in my in my Opinion the best counterpoint and that he said look advertising's only effective to a point and then as a point just becomes annoying. So so you know yeah. He's he's a rich guy. That's how that's how it works. You can buy advertising but look ultimately Bloomberg does have experienced so he's GonNa do better than a guy like store who's like who the fuck is this guy. I mean. He was the mayor of New York stories. Just like out of nowhere. Like why are you? Are you even on the stage at all? Talking about stiers. Whatever Tom Store whatever fuck beca because what has he done? He's just a rich dude. I Dunno he's not our does so many reach people that are running. They often just one billionaire. If he's like. Hey I'm running. He's on the stage but Bloomberg's ads are story stores his at sucked he's because he has no charisma and he's like I I think Donald Trump is. I'm the only candidate thinks that climate change is our number one concern but Bloomberg actually smart. Because he's he's not charismatic guy and he's not really like impressive looking so he he's not in his ads he does like hit jobs on trump. He does jobs about he. I've seen commercials about gun control. He doesn't even show his face. He just goes. I'm Michael Bloomberg and I didn't even show his face just as voice. I mean that's smart. That is smart. He knows he's got yeah again. He's going to get on the stage and I think when people see him. I don't think I think Jay probably could. This is Bloomberg. I really do actually I. I don't know what he looks like. Even I mean I do use. I've seen him but I don't really know like I haven't seen him. You know on the debate so I don't know but trump calls them low mike because he's short short see. I didn't know that he gets. How tall is by? Its short for presidential candidate. I mean I mean it's a weird thing but all presidents are generally tall I. It's not like they leave but the reality is almost all president like just throughout history. Presidents are on average taller than ride short presidents in Israel. George Bush wasn't tall. Was He W Netanyahu's not that tall talking about America here. You like our tall men. Hell was George Bush W or senior both Let's see George W Bush is six feet six and his dad Seniors Heights is six two but we now we had someone that was five seven. Little Bitch trump. I think it's like six to Clinton is six to eight sanders six feet. Sanders is tall even at his age. Now he's probably got a Reagan six. Hang on hang on. Hang on keep going. We're GONNA find a short president who was always teddy. Roosevelt was Teddy Roosevelt Roosevelt. I don't think it was a tall guy who is Alpha's fuck though Cova Jar is Five four that's true. Teddy Roosevelt was only five ten I can't believe this is an article. Any closure five feet. Four inches is a pretty good size for a president. Okay well okay so so we went back to Teddy. Roosevelt was five ten but people were shorter back in the day. So you know that may have still been atr above average. So what do you make of that? I think it's like a weird primal thing that we looked to our leaders to be big people. I a Word Alpha thing yeah. I don't know I'm lane. Where so lame we've got a smash. The president was James Madison. Who is only five four but he was like one of the first. Yes what did back then Munchkins back? Then Oh you know what's interesting George? Washington was super tall for the he was like six to back. Then that was like a giant Let's see George Washington's height ever let me down it's not coming up with I remember Reading that George. Washington was of unusually large stature. Giving me all of these elevations for the city Washington Rosicky Bug Wok. Obviously about two inches. I mean that would be for. How much did you say six to six two but back? Then that would be here. It says six four I.

will be out there in July and August and September and Hector yielded knowledge this even if colonel has a really strong second half you're going to have like these bitter taste in your mouth because you gonna be saying when my team played games that mattered you did not deliver absolutely absolutely and then there's the same thing within the guard I think it's a little bit too much of a big deal being made if you look at the numbers for whatever reason he dominates the lawyers in Florida so it was in the same old thing for him let's like we've spoken before let's see you put a couple of

you should treat no was to move on I don't think the time is at the end of the month let him have a strong second half and if you want to revisit that conversation in the off season that to me is when

why Jeff being male and if we do this year is still sitting there with a batting average of three forty nine while now if the Mets can get him where he belongs which is in the infield you know you might be added so it sounded playing guys in a problem positions I know what a concept I think the DA's very Sparky joins us without spark much as far as bone gonna need you get him we're winning the

"Good afternoon i'm pat their ston well it's time this the simcha school board is going to vote tomorrow on those amazing murals at george washington high school we've been talking about this a few times you know we have talked about what what's going on there the meeting took place recently the way the san francisco board of education as lopa yep says needs to go back to school he has written a piece that i think is one of those billion pieces i've i've read about this and it's headlined our school board deserves an f. well lobi at this back in the studio with me he is the vice president of the george washington high school alumni association john rothman is here of course he's keijo talk show host he's my friend and colleague and he is the president of the san francisco i'm sorry george washington i was gonna give bigger title the george washington high school them nias o._c. shen and then we have a very special guest he is the famous dewey crump ller he is an amazing artist and the your claim to fame this discussion dewey is that you are the person who was commissioned to do the i think they call them the response murals first of all thanks so much for coming in here thanks for being here today and i love your glasses they're adorable so would you tell us what they response murals were and how you came to be the person to paint them In nineteen sixty eight. Little before that, actually. Was working in San Francisco as the painting, murals, not Meryl's paintings about the. the black power movement that was taking place and so i had a number of paintings and drawings about the black panther party and so exhibited those in a number of places around the city and and the students at george washington very angry about the images of african americans which were which were located on the walls in the main building and so they created a protest to have those narrows remove and they were extremely adamant about that and and stood it because i had seen those meryl's a few years earlier when i visited washington when i was in high school and and i understood those images the images of native american did sprawled out in the images of black people as servants servants of this this was very difficult it was difficult for me as a high school student and it was difficult for them so anyway they demanded that they be removed the board of education of course wouldn't do that and so in order to get something done they took on another action and actually defaced the meryl's and it was at that point that the board of education decided to to hire an artist who work on them and and the students demanded be me and so i wound up being the person who made those meryl that are so call response mirrow where are they located they're located just in the hallway next to the may Main murals that are all. In the thirty. stand doing that you were one of the people who would instruct people on the arne tough murals and the symbolic gee that was included in those what those murals were actually designed to depict and the lessons that were contained there can you educate us well first of all in nineteen sixty eight When I got commissioned to do this work. It was very difficult because the. board of education and they are commissioned didn't think is that young person had the skills our capacity to make that work and so over the eight years that it took to get that work done because i i had to go to a tremendous number of meetings very difficult contentious meetings and i had to speak to large numbers of people about my vision for the murals and in that process i wound up having to research those meryl's and research murals in general and that made me undestand arna toss murals in ways that i had not initially and and so i said that if the arnott off murals were if i was to paint the work then they aren't off meryl's could not be removed because i believed that are a tough was not making murals that negatively portrayed blacks although he showed slavery Now. Slavery is a reality. it was a horrific period in american history the very founding father of the country are not tall was articulating was a slave owner not only was this man of great power and significance great general great thinker all the things that we had been taught he was at the same time owner of exactly what he said he was fighting for freedom yet he had his boots on the heads of black people for me and those students this was untenable and it was on tenable evidently to harnett all because he set those individuals in those images another thing about honor tall is that the images he made would not of black people with big lips and is sticking out which was the typical way in which blacks were identified in the nineteen thirties even the san francisco chronicle had images of black says buffoons and idiots in their sunday paper absolute characters caricatures and he who spent time in mexico going to study meryl's working with some of the real revolutionaries of mexico diego vera sa- carols order also one of the greatest mira list all three of them in the history of wall painting and he studied with them they were not the kind of people who would engage a racist and in fact his when he came back to the united states he brought with them the style that he had learned from diego rivera and he also understood how to use double entendre in art making he had to get these girls through the difficult process just as i had to do he was doing it in the thirty he was doing it in the thirties and in that relationship he created image of images that had subtext to them and you have to really pay attention art is always laced with subtext and if if you learn to read images you can then understand part of the artist's intention and so those narrows had native americans upright not bent over working like any other people now now i'm not condoning the images of slavery but how do you show that this man was a slave owner and slow were all of the founding fathers of america you have to do this by depicting their physicality With respect to the native American. that native american that really affected me to see a native of eric brown out on the ground arnott aw Laid that native American out. As a critique on manifest destiny. first of all george washington that towering oak over him pointing west that that that moving across the landscape creating genocide to do so he's critiquing that because that native american is at his feet that native americans is stretched out pointing east and west not only is that native american a architect of the of the genocide he is also critiquing the mythology that was emerging about george washington as a truth teller that tree that's at the top of his head is about the same size as the cherry tree we learned that george washington I was a child, and he told us that we. He. couldn't tell a lie and therefore he told his father i chopped down the cherry tree father now this mythology articulates that the country was born in truth and honor because it's it's very founding father was raised to be truthful now that's an archetype for a minute that myth was being challenged if you can read the imagery you see that's exactly what he was doing he also took the notion of manifest destiny and he put those book skin wearing soldiers were not soldiers but so-called pioneers on their way frontiers on their way to manifest destiny but he made them colorless ghosts empty that the notion of manifest destiny was an empty process and these individuals meant it they didn't turn black and white in a space they turn black and white over the body of that native american because that's space is sacred and that sacred space represents the earth the sinew the blood that they walked over and remove millions of people to create a society that we this day oh native americans a great debt to be standing on their ancestors land and that is part of that image and that's the image that i took when i made a native american on the panel that i paint Lifting up her Lilan to suggest forever. that blood that force that energy of native american sacred being is ever upright and forever in all of us and i use the archetype to do it too and it was a problem when i did it and i did it because that force the continent that we lived on and that we live on is the continent that was shaped by that spirit so for me arna tall was not some kind of god he was just an artist trying to make something that had that venerated george washington while stripping him bear of this mythology and laying him out for us to understand that this is the story that you're being told by these historians that created a mythos and that mythos went through every founding father but i think you can contain greatness and be psychotic at the same time and on race they were psychotic you got the the jefferson who was a brilliant individual a brilliant and no question about it and he was as psychotic as the rest of them on race he wrote insane sick documents about how infect black people were not human beings but every night he picked up a candle and walked up those creaky steps to that black woman that he spent his evenings with refuting every lack he told in those stories and produced dozens of black children so i don't that whole notion is displayed in those in that process that's that's why i said i won't be a party to the destruction of the murals i will make you meryl's that are that can stand up to the power these walls and to do it i'll travel to mexico and study myself which i did I'm. That was my. sort of experience experience i would i'd give a lot of money to go anywhere with you and have you explain to me and so moving and i'll tell you what i looked at the panel i had heard about the solis settlers i didn't but i wondered is i was looking at it that not all the settlers were painted colorless and you've just explained it how only the ones who are passing over that body of that native american that's right he they they were the ones as they passed over that sacred ground listen i gotta take a break do crump lurs who you have been hearing famed artists who paint what are called a response murals at george washington high school and we'll be back with your telephone calls eighty eighty eight tennis the telephone number is the i keep wanting to call him the supreme court or the supreme rulers of the high school it is the san francisco school board george washington heights at george washington high school they're going to be voting on the murals there aren't a tough meals that we've talked about so many times on this program john rothman is also here as is low-pay yep and i'm pat thurston.

"For five. That head of added a little bit more to the cheesy carnival version of this that compared to the DisneyWorld of the endorse he slow into. I just I felt bad for not only the polar bear. But those poor work hers. Just that retold okay at the bottom of the slope and had these grown adults just completely down a hill at into especially people like Chris and Brett who the mate in how much they sunk their boat. I can only imagine what a combined five hundred pounds barrel into a poor minimum wage Vietnamese worker, look like, well, I was wondering are those people always there or did? They just show up for the amazing race. I think they're always there. But I think usually the people barreling into them are high. Yeah. Makes sense. Yeah. I I don't know for sure. But it looks like I hid the lace meat and another great Brittany highlight for as much as may have been made this episode about the Brierley's versus current allies. I don't know if you guys saw this. I know Eric Curto brought this up, but Britney even pretty like a Julie Rosenberg esque push. Julie's husband as push to Rachel when she grabbed the sled to get away from. I didn't catch that in the episode. But it's anything like the Twitter video that I recently saw that's one hell of a push. That was that was maximum security in the decade Irby. Okay. Just I any else on snow town before we talked about cap gate. I think right now is a very good time for Mike at I to resurrect the segment that we have invented or this podcast while you were out RAV we created a new weekly recurring theme for show are the recalling amazing race wanna one and Mike, and I have dropped hor-. You actually at one of our I again fan of ours has put together and recorded just for this segment. So Mike you wanna play the draw for us. Gang. No one. Okay. We want to give our thanks to George Washington heights where recording that for us. Oh. That a Georgia pod guessing debut. I think that is George podcast intentionally. You may have heard him jamming in the background. Sometimes I think this is just much like snow town itself a slippery slope to Bob Casey Kasem one day announcing George on the wand off. I it's either going to be that or who's just like show up hosting his own show at some point because that kid he was more game than he should have been to the stock up. I know that's like okay are amazed always want to one. Mazing alone. And this we are we got questions about two different things that I want to bring to your attention. And then number one, I think is the more obvious one which is this feed them, and we can go into the extensive history of the speed bump, I think we'd talked a lot about non eliminating links last. But one of the questions we thought from a few different people who have their first time watching the show, and they're not sure is this speed bump seemed to kinda cheesy and dumb, and like it didn't take very much time at all. Now, Mike is that emblematic of all eat boots. Could you say I mean, not all like all Taffer is going to be a range of difficulties associated with it. I do feel like the important connotation is. Usually when we think of speed bump, the vast majority of them are going to be these simple tasks like I believe one of them was sitting on a chair..

"And prove that she's an ally to social Justice right by ensuring that a gay woman of color plays the rule. So a a black lesbian must be kept in marvel. I don't know. Why was the original was the original captain marvel black lesbian being told? No was the original captain marvel black. Yes, or no. I think they made some sort of. She made an appearance it looks like and longtime ago in one thing and then apparently slipped off into obscurity after several name changes and the character change quite a bit. But before it, you know for she had her own. Line if you will her own story, and then once that came around when they actually made her into a character. It looks like home. I gosh ally was a white woman. Oh, no. No boy. Okay. So I I'm not sure how the how that makes sense that you must I guess all characters. Now, do they all have to be gay women? Maybe that's the deal. Maybe every new movie character has to be gay transvestite transgendered person or a person of color. No more white people in movies, please. We're just done with white. We actually had one director say. He can't imagine ever giving a role casting a white, man. White doesn't even need to apply and stuff. So great. She's. We're in an upside down world as I think, you know, founding fathers are also under attack right now students at Hofstra. University are demanding that the Thomas Jefferson statue on on campus be removed. Yeah. The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus. It's been defaced with the word decolonize and black lives matter signs and stickers on it. Foof? So there's a big protest now every year, and in fact, multiple times a year about getting rid of it. They stand around the around the statue and demand that it be torn down. Go study. It is about what the statue represents a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses. That's what Thomas Jefferson represents you. She's the organizers of this our students from Hofstra and some staff members from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. Oh, so, you know, their quality individuals. Look, I who am I to judge. I'm just saying these people are going to burn in the fires of hell. That's all. I mean, I, you know, judge anyone so no I'm just saying I'm just saying. I am so tired of the Thomas Jefferson hatred, the George Washington hatred, which they're also is we've got this story about a northern California Public school. They may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of get this, George Washington heights. Yes. Because of confer concerns, it's offensive and demeaning to native Americans in African Americans. I mean open up a book. A working group determined the mural made up of several panels traumatizes students and community members. If it traumatizes these little darlings, they need to just stay home K homeschool where nothing bad can ever happen. And they can see only what's on the walls of your home. Don't let them stray outside ever for any reason. So tired of this advocates for keeping the mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history. Yeah. Well, I mean, somebody said once those that we're going to have to make sacrifices have to change our conversation for station. We're gonna have to change our tradition history based the move into a different place. So I guess what we ask ourselves is is removing a statue of Thomas Jefferson and erasing mural of George Washington. Isn't that fulfilling everything she just said there and more it absolutely is? This is what this is about. In nineteen thirty six this artist of Victor Amitav painted, the thirteen panels that make up the life of Washington. Keep in mind again. This is George Washington high school. Detail dinner. He was a prominent Russia baron painter who created the murals as part of a works project administration project undertaken by the new deal. Wait a minute. Something good came about to say, I was on the side of leaving the mural found out. It was a make work project as amazing. She's the group has four public meetings.
