"Uh huh. Uh huh. Everybody, Chip franklin with you. This is a, um I love the word nuance. And I love the fact that it Xena's week. Most people that when you have conversation, especially talk radio, especially conservative talk radio. There's they don't go down this path. I'll tell you, it's difficult. If we're talking about, you know, George Washington High School. I mean, the reason that the reason they wanted to change Abraham Lincoln, I think because they were just gonna change them all. Jefferson owned slaves and Washington owned slaves on unconscionable They also did some amazing things. Um, how do we deal with that history? How about the truth, but we just talk about it. And and and look at what? You know what things that what happened? What we could have done what we should have done. Um, I, you know I worry a lot about overreaction and the pendulum going too hard the other way. What's in a word Plenty. And you know, the N word is the one we all talk about. But there's other words to that. We talk today about we talk about socialists and communists and we and we hear people say them without having any idea of what the hell they're talking about. You know, and you could go right from me. I mean, I love it when people say I love capitalism, I'm never gonna This is not a capitalistic society. There's nothing about this society this capitalistic because you have taxes. You know, you don't get to just go and earn the stuff You keep You pay taxes. You're part of a collective, a group. Everything that matters to you in this country. As socialist ties where we all share You're not wrong with that. Why would anybody have a problem with it? But I wanna I wanna work for what? I'm making fun of the person with that voice, which is probably not fair. All right. I'm gonna go to Paul and Sandra say, Paul. Let's have a nuanced conversation. Go ahead. All right. So afternoon. Cheerio. Good afternoon to you, friend. Well, my new US constitutions about one of my heroes. Abraham Lincoln, who the last 40 or 50 years, has taken a dramatic Because people Has dug through what making us said. Certain negative things that making that said, Remember, he knows the part of the 70 plus years ago about black people when will probably never be equal, socially toe white people. That was the point. But the only The only so she can. I jump in there real quick when he said that I read Unterberg Station of that that he wasn't saying that they didn't deserve to be that way. He just felt that white people would never accept them. That's one thing I read that was written in like Harper's or something like that was a narc. I was like, Oh, I want familiar with that quote. And you know what they found on him was always second hand. It wasn't actually his writing. It was what he had said to other people, and it was written by other people. But this these people that I read interpreted it wasn't that he was saying, Look, their culture so different in our lives or my Children's lives. They're never going to be fully accepted in this country. And and he saw it as a problem to the country. And the truth is, hey, I mean it. You got cops rolling up on young black men and shooting and permission for the wallet. I would say that you know, Lincoln's prophecy is still holding pretty true. Oh, okay. Um I don't mind that interruption since Lincoln is a girl of my ship, Did you every Gore Vidal's book about Lincoln Really happened. Oh, you've got to read it. It's a fictionalized part of his life about about a 10 year period of his life, But it's based on his story. It's like, Remember the guy that used to write James Missionary used to write these fictionalized history historical, you know, docudramas. It's a really good and glorify tells an amazing writer. You would like it if if thinking is your, um if your hero But do you think we put too much pressure on heroes today by holding them to these standards? Yes, definitely. Do, I think way. Judge Barnes. Heroes like Lincoln like Washington not sufficient as you mentioned earlier. Really close to our standards. Now, just imagine, I'll give I'll give you a more contemporary and fifties and sixties 90%. Was straight neck. Work. Homophobic, right? I don't know what I mean, right? But it was understandable. Know your homophobia. You stand up, stand out like a So are some, Hmm. I did it for 16 years ago. Yeah, it did a TV show once, and I had a joke. Talking about It was two guys with two guys go to the movies together. They always leave that empty seat between each other right here saying that, you know, and I said that's called the Homo seat, so everybody would think that you know there were not Homo, so look at the sea. And I did that joke And I did. That joke is recently is 10 or 12 years ago, and somebody came up to me afterwards. And I said, What time attacking homophobia? Yeah, I'm using that word. I mean, I used to do crap. I should do shows before black audiences and I used the n word talking to them about it, and it was entirely acceptable. I mean, I did it 100 times before room full of black people. And and talk to them about the word. I didn't use it as a as a pro Jordan. I feel like we all have to constantly be discussing this because the answer's out there. It's just it's not simple. Okay, I think the pendulum a zoo said earlier. I swung Too far to the left. We just swing it back. A little bit more to the middle. Hold on things.

"The president of a savage states of America is an alternate universe that we live in very alternate universe. I want a bright Bart this morning to see the article that they wrote about me. It's really a good one. It's it's well done. Josh Kaplan did a great interview. And it's about my new book. Our fight for America and I ask you today. Can we save America? Out of what are we saving? I was searching, bright bought, and I saw an article just now that I have to share with you. Caught my attention. University of Rhode Island to remove World War Two murals, Judah lack of diversity. I said, This can't be a true story. This is not not true. Where's your Rhode Island recently announced plans to remove two murals depicting the events of World War two due to the lack of diversity. The decision was prompted after students complain of the mural was not compatible with the university's values of inclusivity. According to the school's vice president of student affairs, quote. Some of our students have even shared with us. They didn't feel comfortable sitting in that space. So murals there 70 year old, seven year old murals that show the reality of World War two. When 99% of the soldiers will white men. Saving America from Hitler. Offend people. The murals were painted to pay respect to the memories of those who lost their lives in World War two. Mural's feature area scenes, including veterans returning to the United States. And the University of Rhode Island Class reunion. Kathy Collins, the university Royal vice president, Student affairs section received numerous complaints from students about the murals, lack of diversity. The dummy said. I've received complaints about the murals that portray a very homogeneous population. Predominantly, the person's painted and depicted on the wall are predominantly white. And that does not represent or institution is today. Some of our students even shared because they didn't feel comfortable sitting in that space. Enough. I would've Vice President student affairs I said then you're you're entitled to a leave. If you're not comfortable. We're not going to revise history for you, You stupid idiot! You get the hell out of my school. They're the ones who saved our country. So that it's like you could go to college. You more on you. Course in June of 1920 19, the George Washington High School in San Francisco. Said they would erase an offensive mural of George Washington. This is what Lenin tought. So when I asked the rhetorical questions begin in the hour. When I said our book is called our Fight for America, the war continues. I said to you Is America Worth saving? Well, the answer is quite clear. And what's the difference between Biden and Trump? Well, the answer is quite clear. Dummy, bright part, The hologram in the basement would probably agree that it's not diverse enough. Even though it was 99% white men who died in World War two, which is not to denigrate the people of color who died fighting Hitler and fighting in the far Pacific. Let's not change reality. Let's not change history in order to accommodate the morons who never belonged in college to begin with. They belong in a mental hospital. Where they could have their with their egos sad by psychiatrists who could put to my medication if they're uncomfortable with everything in the country. Now, my friends, So yeah, that's worth fighting for. I do it on a regular basis here on the show. I'm afraid you could do it. Maybe once every few years when you go to a vote. As you well know, we really don't have a democracy, but we have is a dictatorship that's punctuated by a democracy every few years when we get the vote. Now that we're liable to elect Trump again. The left wants to Destroy the election in advance. They're planning on national riots to take down the country of Trump wins fairly and squarely on election Day. They're planning in there. Planning it. They're building the Molotov cocktails. They're planning it. They're plotting it. And the FBI DHHS do not arrest them. Why? I don't know. Well, I do know could pretty much figure it out. Those of the agencies that helps spread the big lie about the Russia collusion story. And today, Of course, the big lie put out by Bob Woodhead. The greatly overvalued. Writer for the Washington Press Corps. My God, what a hack. He is. Bob Woodward is the equivalent of Anthony Fauci. Their shelf life expired a long time ago. And the boxes should have been discarded. In the 19 seventies, but there they are. 45 years later, still putting out What they're well known for Foulke of promoting himself and Woodward promoting the Democrat Party line. So if you listen to the interview with Donald Trump What he says Yes, I know the illness was serious, but I downplayed it because I didn't want to panic. The population. That's what a leader does. A bad leader panics the population, a good leader quiets and calms the population. And the first hour we had an airline pilot called, he said. Of course you're right, Michael, he said. From mountain Airplane of Flying. The plane is 300 passengers on it and we have a technical problem. We don't panic the passengers and say the plane's gonna crash. Ever notice how calm a captain's voice is how reassuring it is even in an emergency. Trained to be calm and cool and collected. That's what a leader does. They're not hysterics like Bob would had. You're supposed to say. We have a slight technical glitch. Police put on your seat belts. Everything will be OK instead of saying, ah, the plane's gonna crash. Kiss your loved ones. Goodbye asked. Bob would would kiss your loved ones. Goodbye. The world's coming to an end. Everyone's going to die from Kobe. So they panic. The whole Washington Press Corps panicked. The medical establishment panicked and I keep reentering again. It's a big light of cost. The virus is lethal to some But not to all. Of course, the virus kills some, but not all who get it. That's why my first chapter In our fight for America is, I think a very brilliant confluence of realities. I call it the twin plagues Covad ism and communism. And I want to read you one line from the book. And I want you to decide whether you think this is Worth your investment of time..

"Statues and not monuments have nothing to do with someone like Monnitoff, bringing The dark history of Washington in those murals, whether it's the African Americans at Mount Vernon or those American Indians that were traumatized on drill briefly. Dr David Pilgrim, the curator of the Jim Crow Museum recently said that history, whether it's good or bad is better than no history. You take the bad history, use it as a teaching moment and just tried preserved. What we have otherwise, you'll repeat it and just like we all know Jewish people would love to keep reminding us about things that happened in ash with stuff because they never want this to happen to anyone else. Okay. I would like to interject here that one of the issues that I have with Americans is that we're ignorant when it comes to history, and we go one way and then we go another way. We want to see George Washington. As you know, the kid who chopped down the cherry tree. We don't want to see his darker side or we see only the fact that he held slaves. And that was an abomination. It was a horrible, horrible thing for any individual to dio. And of course, there were abolitionists who existed at the time of our nation's founding who had a complete abhorrence to the concept of slavery. So I will never say that what Washington did in holding slaves was excusable. It was not History is replete with complexities. And that's the thing that we simply tend to ignore. George Washington led African American troops as well as a lot of other ethnicities in the American revolutions in the American Revolution. He had his writings expressed personal views that he realized that slavery was inherently wrong. And in his last will and testament, he freed the men, women and Children that he owned. He provided for education for the young and pensions for the old. He did this, though, on Lee after the death of his wife, Martha, she would continue to use their labor, but it's pointed out by the people at Mount Vernon, that of his example. Had been the example that had been followed by every slave owner in 17 99. Slavery would have ended in a generation and it would have ended peacefully Now could he have done more? Yeah, he could have done more, but there were people who celebrated him. Even probably the most well known abolitionist in our history. Who was Frederick Douglas. He was not only an abolitionist. He was one of the most well known or Raiders a man of utmost brilliance. He and many others actually used the example of George Washington to shame Americans toe live up to the standard that he had established and when George Washington's body was moved to the new tomb that exists that Mount Vernon in 18 35 It was a group of George Washington's former enslaved people. Now, freedmen who voluntarily worked to clean up the site voluntarily work to clean up the site. So while his enslavement of people but to my mind is inexcusable, his history has complexities. And there are things about this man. That should be celebrated by every American. So the problem here is that we're ignorant. The problem here is that we don't teach history and its complexities. The problem is that we want people to be all pure or all horrid, And that's not the reality for any human being alive. I just want to throw in quickly. The board of Education here in San Francisco, will in the next several weeks consider changing the name of George Washington High School. Unless there is a ground swell. From the grassroots of this city. To say no. It's George Washington High School. We may lose the name of the school. The murals were battling every day to preserve but I point this out because those of you who who are Living in San Francisco. Even those without need to remind the board of education what it means when you have George Washington's name on George Washington High School. Come on, Go ahead. Uh, I may add that these four schools could be the beginning of many. So in San Francisco, you already have. These four schools already changed a few others. But now you're talking about other high schools that could be blink in high school. Could be Balboa High School could be Mission high school. I mean, how far you go with this, You know, because It doesn't you know, again, like white washing our history like this didn't happen. And but it seems like there's a difference between honoring individuals and then honoring like mission If the mission's shouldn't be honored. I mean, I I am very strong. You know why I was so that you know, I was called mission. Because of a mission? No, because it's located within a block of mission High School and Mission High School was named after a mission, Delores okay and and the missions are were abominations, and I don't like the idea of celebrating those missions. But the point is, and I say this because I want people to understand. Every school kid sanfrancisco goes to mission doors. It's been fully restored. When you go to mission, Delores, you learn about the evils of the mission system. It's not a ll sunshine and roses. Same thing applies with Abraham Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln on September, the 18th 18 58 said there was a superior and inferior position on the white person should have the superior position. But the point we're trying to make is Don't erase history. Expose it. Let people see what it was and also recognize as In the case of George Washington balance that Washington is the man who laid the foundation for this nation on I want to.

And Ah, I've talked with a lot of Indians around the country, and there's a lot that feel like I do now, John, let me ask you because what initiated us today is the possibility that's being proposed. Of changing the name of George Washington High School, and I want your reaction to how you feel about that move. Well, I'm not supportive of that. I think you know George Washington like it or not, in some areas. He's a father of our country. That's correct, although he was a flawed Individual, you know he had slaves. But you know, he if it wasn't for George Washington, and this is my thought on on the deal, we wouldn't have We wouldn't have America. We wouldn't be. Ah, ah, free to to elect our leaders. You know, they see. Ah, he made it so that we Ah, It wasn't like a monarch because he could have easily been a king had had Had he wanted, but he believed in what they wrote in the Constitution. And I do too, and I think that we as As individual should strive for that, and we should be honest about our history, and we should be honest and not be afraid. Or traumatized by anything that that happened, and we need to learn from that. Now you're joined by Harvey Pratt. And I want people to understand who Harvey is and why he's on Harvey. Welcome to KGO. Thank you very much. Go ahead. Harvey. Tell us your story quickly so we can we can get a sense of why we are gathered here today. Well, I am a member of Sean Rappel tribe in Oklahoma and also one of the southern Cheyenne and cheats. And, uh, I am spent, uh, 50 years in law enforcement. On my native American artist. Let me ask you this because we know that you were in favor of preserving the murals, which is Pat pointed out depict history, not through rose colored glasses. Depict what actually happened. The death of first nation people the fact that Washington was a slaveholder. All of that's depicted, but let me ask you the blunt question. There's now move here in San Francisco. To change the name of George Washington High School on because of what they consider to be his slave holding past. How do you react to that? Well, I think that that was a culture that he lived in, you know, and Whether he totally agreed with they're not, uh, that's what everybody else was doing. And and now we're living in the 21st century and and we're looking back at those things and Uh, Well, we're trying to consider was right and wrong. And I think that when you when you look out at those aspects of what was right and wrong That things that were slanted. If you leave them there, unless that's ah, right history about some other things that kind of balanced that out, rather than destroying something, because that's what they're Which is the argument, which is the argument RV we make. And John about George Washington, Matt Vernon of the home of George Washington, issued a statement saying, Why do we honor George Washington is the father of our nation? Where they're countless memorials and statues Commemorating him throughout the United States and in many countries around the world. These monuments were raised to celebrate his role in the creation of a nation that idealized liberty and self rule a nation that would never Have existed without his leadership. And it goes on to explain his leadership in the creation of this nation. The fact that he was the first president the fact that he did many things that were admirable. And I think what we're seeing now is an assault on history. So the argument I made is if you're going to change the name of George Washington High School, you better change the name of Washington, D C and Washington state, And you better blow up the Washington Monument there if you get to a point Not that you deny. That the's things happened, but rather that you confronted and As you have both pointed out. That's what the murals do explain that to us when you and either one of you, Harvey or John, and by the way, low pay is on the line with us is there too? Go ahead. Low pay. Why don't you chime in? We're talking about the name of George Washington. We're talking about the murals. But maybe you can explain why you believe the name of George Washington High School, which has existed since 1936. Why that name should not be changed. So good afternoon. Thank you for having us on today. The experts, the people, no history and art. When they when they created the school. They knew all about the history of Washington and the capability of the artists and earlier this year Sam Cisco High School George Washington School. Our application to the National Park Service or the Historical American Building survey was accepted. And it's now what nationally recognized campus including the six artists and doing Crumpler, who made the The response murals in the sixties. So It's very important to me and others that we honor this. We understand that George Washington has a dark side. But if you look at all the positives of George Washington purses, his negatives it It doesn't even compare. So I'm in agreement to keep the name protect the art teach young people who feel if they do feel oppressed or traumatized to educate them. Understand what this implies. There's there's no no issue with people who understand that. Completing Confederacy..
