"gottfried" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"Gottfried, the author of anti fascism the course of a crusade. Doctor gottfried, maybe the most disturbing thing about what we can just call woke ideology, this madness, which is cultural Marxism, is that major multinational corporations seem to be abetting this, the Democratic Party, which used to be an American party is aiding and abetting this. How do we explain multinational organizations seemingly having zero values not caring about human beings not caring about Uighur Muslims in China and just not only going along with this or the same as the NBA or Nike? How do we explain that? Yeah, I think that's a complicated problem. And it's one that, you know, I don't think adequately addressed in my book, because like you I am puzzled by what I'm saying, clearly these corporate capitalists do not believe they're going to be they're going to be expropriated. And they don't take the socialist aspects of the woke left seriously. I think they do. They're obviously not the totality of what they left is pushing, but they are an aspect of it. But I think many of these wool capitalists are themselves imbued with woke ideology. They believe this stuff. You know, just as there were German plutocrats who may well have believed in what the Nazis said and we're not simply going along for the ride or because they were being forced to. I think other woke capitalists are following the path of least resistance. They know that if they do something that the left doesn't like the left may use violence against them, the less other power of products. Since we don't have a ton of time, let's cut to the chase. They're cowards. They are throwing other people under the bus. So that they don't get in trouble. They're throwing people out of the sleigh. So the wolves can get those people and they can continue on the step. I agree. No, I think a lot of this is cowardice. I think they think they can survive and there are fortunes will not be taken away as long as they, you know, follow the lead of the left and do what the left ones and give money to BLM. There's lots of woke capitalism that's going to be a money that's going to be OM. There's hundreds of millions of dollars that they've given. And it's not something that the Democratic Party. They give it to the people who are the hellraisers causing violence, hoping that their business establishments or their buildings will not be affected. It's like paying the mob. In other words, they have no values except survival. Right. No, I think you're absolutely right. And they also, of course, give money to the Democratic Party and occasionally they host things for BLM leaders, people associated with antifa. No, they're utterly corrupt. Okay, are these not simply limousine liberals? Is this not Leonard Bernstein in the black Panthers? Take us back to that era, which he remembered. How is it any different? I think that should be the beginning. You know, and if you remember the Lake Tom wolf wrote a very good work on this, you know, the Leonard Bernstein's party and how all these incipient woke capitalists were invited. But I think what we're seeing is much worse. You know, it's not simply a matter of coming out occasionally for some leftist cause or radical cause, which is what wolf is pillaring. It's people who devote a lot of money and a lot of energy to pushing the woke left. And who are closely allied with it. And we'll go ahead and fire people who, you know, are not politically correct. One of the things I point in my book is the attempt to impose gender free language on their workforces, which many of these capitalists they're doing. They never seem to miss a beat. I mean, whether it's a matter of supporting, you know, black thugs, antifa riots, or, you know, coming out for transgender and so forth, they seem to buy, you know, the whole 9 yards. Well, again, I would simply say the reason Leonard Bernstein and his pals didn't do their equivalents are doing today because they didn't yet have the power. They were on their way, they were only beginning the march through the institutions back then, and they did what they could. Yeah, I don't think there was radical because the age in which they were living. The age in which I lived, you know, I was a young man then. Was not as radical at so culturally radical as it has become. I have no doubt that if they were around, they would be, you know, the world capitalist today, because if you look at people, I don't know like Harry Belafonte was sort of a kind of generic liberal back in the 1960s. Well, you know, now he's supporting Black Lives Matter and his old age. So, I mean, these people keep moving to the left. I mean, they're driven when I say about the force of events in the force of their own ideology. But, you know, back in the 1960s, people were not as open to the cultural radicalism that has now overtaken us. Well, but again, the intellectuals, whether it's Lillian hellman or Jean-Paul Sartre, they it really is the same thing. It's just that now it's kind of coming back to bite them and some of them are waking up and they're saying, hey, wait a minute. Why can't I joke about this or I can't joke about that? I mean, imagine if Lenny Bruce were alive today, I wonder what he would say. Yeah, I think we're dealing with, you know, it's not so much ideology here as personalities. There are people who feel alienated from bourgeois Christian society. Who are going to align with whatever is on the left. So, you know, we're not dealing with the Communist Party that Joe McCarthy attacked any longer. Because, you know, the Soviet empire is gone. You don't have that option. So what these people identify with is transgendered people or, you know, black revolutionaries who are rioting and burning down cities. Because that is where a person who feels alienated from what we'd consider normal society would go. But they've given themselves permission to hate, which I find fascinating as a Christian. I don't have permission to hate. I have permission to fight against evil, but not to hate. They seem to have given themselves permission to hate, and I saw it when I was at Yale in the early 80s already that we have the moral superiority and we can hate those fascists and those bigots and it makes you feel good. This is really that. They have somehow made hate a virtue. I agree. Yeah, I think what they would say is moral indignation. They're angry at the evil people. And, you know, this is not really hate. It's justified anger that they're expressing. Of course, it's the same thing. You know, in practice. Right. I'm sorry we're out of time. Just a joy to have you, doctor Paul gottfried, the book is anti fascism, the course of a crusade. Doctor.

"The author of anti fascism. The course of a crusade. For whom did you write this book, doctor gottfried? I see on the cover, it looks like a Marxist activist planning his flag. Antifa, anti fascist style themselves as somehow, on the left, the good guys, they're against nazism, but they're more horrible or as horrible as the Nazis ever were, or were they aspired to be as horrible. Yeah, one of the arguments I make in the book is that they always see themselves as being in the interwar European struggle between fascism and communism. You know, the Popular Front on one side and then the reactionary Spanish government and the Nazis and the coming in the Italian fascists and so forth. They see themselves as still involved in a struggle that took place a long time ago. And they they typically shied with the communists, which is interesting, although the communists their homophobic sexist to all the things that were not supposed to do here. Anti semitic around defending a cake of ara, who was a racist, a real racist. They'll defend Castro. They want to identify themselves with what in their mind is an eternal left. So they always see themselves involved in the inter war struggle against fascism, which goes on and on, you know it never ends. But what they have in common, of course, and I mean, I always want to try to make this point is that antifa, which says we're anti fascist. And so called fascists and cultural marxists and actual marxists and on and on and on. What they all have in common is they reject the God of the Bible and the values of the God of the Bible, which values have led to self government on the American model, have led to the dignity of everyone, have led us away from slavery. In other words, they reject that that God, and they reject that kind of freedom and government and attempt to replace it with something which they themselves don't really seem to know what it is. It seems to be this chimera, they're never going to get there, but they keep talking about it. And I think if we finally kill enough people, we'll finally achieve what we want. No, I think you're right. It's very clear what they reject. It's less clear what they want. And particularly when you get to the woke left, I mean, all they do is cancel and riot and do things like that. The communists the old fashioned communists had some vestigial Marxist view that at the end of this process, we're going to have a socialist society and the state will wither away. Of course, it never happened. You know? And in practice, they behave, like Nazis, but at least in theory, this was going to happen. The president woke left, I'm not sure the event of a vision beyond being destructive. Nihilistic. I think there were nihilism does apply to them. And the hypocrisy to me is absolutely glaring. They don't seem to care if Muslims are sexist. They abuse women. It's only if white Christians do this, you know. And now what's the reason for that? What is it? I mean, I have a theory. Why do you say that they could be that? Just almost unbelievably hypocritical and self contradictory. I mean, you're quite right. They will ally themselves with Muslim radicals who ostensibly stand for everything against what they stand for. Why? Because they hate their own society, and they hate the society of their ancestors. You see this particularly among Germans. And I was a German historian that, you know, present big and present day Germany, you know, Muslims are glorified, even if they're sexy, whatever, even if they can the crimes against women will cover the political left will cover up for them all the time is happening here on the United States. Because they're driven by what they hate and take their own civilization and the heat of ancestral civilization. And that I think is maybe even more important than their loss for power in the end. Is this hatred? Yeah, a hatred. It's interesting to me because what we're talking about really is post logical. In other words, they would say that logic is a patriarchal construct. You're not going to fool me with your brilliant arguments, my rage will kill you and your stupid arguments, and I will have my way. So it's a nietzschean nihilistic will to power masquerading as something more complicated. Yeah, I think there is a will to power, but I think there's also this blind hatred and just bull and they like to bully. That may be the more powerful the world will to power, which is they're going to push other people around people who may have content. And unfortunately, the people for whom they have contemptuous give in all the time. You know, they are absolutely no backbone. That's why that's why this process of hectoring and bullying goes on. Well, I mean, you could take this, but I always think of, you know, the Columbia University president's office being taken over by teenage thugs because already in 1968, this spirit was roaming abroad in the land. The adults figured we've got nothing to say, the young people, it's like this Russo in idea of the innocent young people are gonna teach us the way of the future, which is just it's utterly preposterous, but it's been going on now for over 50 years. I agree. I'm old enough to remember that. And I said, it's just the professor at K western reserve when this was going on. We were also taken over by these leftist thugs. And the reaction of the older faculty is, you know, their young people, and we really haven't justice in our society and so forth. It was very little attempt to resist this. Okay, we're going to go to another, yet another break, very happy to be talking to doctor pol.

"I use it, it works. Hey there folks suck in a Paul gottfried, the author of many books, the editor of chronicles. One book we're discussing is fascism, the concept, and then the new book, anti fascism, the course of a crusade. You were just answering my big question, doctor gottfried about what is fascism and how did it start? So if you don't mind, go back to what you were saying about how you have the Mussolini looking back to this era of Roman antiquity, go ahead. Yeah, all fascist movements, what I call generic fascist movements. And I think the Nazis represent a more complicated and brutal model. But all sort of generic fascism, which is essentially Latin fascism. Wants to return to Roman antiquity. They're always backward looking. This is one thing that clearly distinguishes them from the left. The left rejects the past. You know, it wants to go into a future that it is creating for us. In monstrous future, when I don't care to live in. But they are rejecting the past. I mean, that's why the left runs around tearing down statues and telling you that, you know, all white people and their history is evil. Because they want to create something new, whereas the fascists are always trying to return, you know, to some idealized pass usually a pre Christian pass and I think you see this in the phosphates, which are featured on the cover of my book on fascists and they're so called bundle of sticks with the axe. Well, okay, so but this seems to me, these are in some ways peripheral differences because okay, you say, oh, conservatives want to go back to the past. The hard left wants to go back into some utopian pseudo future and yet when you look at the Nazis and you look at antifa today, there's a brutality. They are really unwilling. The reason you say post Christian or pre Christian, rather, it seems to me that actual Christianity, the Bible scares these folks because these folks are all about power and they know that power can not coexist with inalienable rights with the sanctity of the human being. So they have to crush that, otherwise they can't succeed. They have that in common. Yeah, I agree with you about that. I affect the first chapter of my book on anti fascism, deals with a similarities between a BLM and the antifa movements and the brown shirts under the Nazis. They exactly the same tactics, and they also have both had wide support systems. There was some sympathy for what they were doing among the populace. Which is not true, by the way about the American Communist Party in the United States, which was always isolated, even if it represented Soviet subversion, but that was, you know, they put people in the State Department. The communists did not have the kind of power that BLM and the woke left. But that's the point. That's why they've reinvented themselves as BLM and antifa. So they are basically those communists having gone through the long march to the institutions in a different form calling themselves anti fascist or BLM, they are all cultural marxists and they just have changed the terminology. That's how I see it. Yeah, I think the cultural marxists are far more dangerous than the regular marxists because they're trying to destroy human nature in a way that marxists did not. I mean, the Marxist tried to change things socioeconomically, they created, you know, monstrous economies. They created totalitarian societies. They did not make a war against gender roles. They did not. There was no need for them to do that. They made a war against anything that threatened them and they weren't able to use that as a lever at that time. But I mean, if you think about what people went through in the gulag, I mean, it really was to unmake the person in the same way that the Chinese communist dictators are trying to do with Uyghur Muslims. They're trying to crush you. They will leave you alone only if you don't threaten them. You know, I agree. I mean, you know, the actual Marxist in power were more brutal, but then they had more opportunity. And it was less resistance once they took over. But I but I think what the cultural marks is they're aiming at is much more diabolical. Which is totally to destroy any traditional human relations that have existed until now. The marxists never went quite that far, and it is the pervasiveness of this woke ideology throughout every western form of democracy that I find the most terrifying aspect of their of their project. I mean, there's so little control against them. Whereas, you know, you could always attack marks just underground to the wreck in the economy and people are going to be poor. But, you know, until the election in Virginia, I really didn't see very much pushback. But don't you think just because it hasn't been clear? People have lost who said it, cultural confidence. And so you let that you let the visigoths in because you don't have any cultural will. You don't know who you are, but when things get bad enough as they have in the last year or so, especially, suddenly people wake up, suddenly people say, hey, wait a minute. This is madness on every front. What's going on? I mean, I really think that finally, many Americans who were just kind of letting it ride understand that they can't. You know, I think that's true. They will also have been indoctrinated at so many different levels and through so many institutions. That sort of weakened their resistance to this. And, you know, my book on anti fascism I make the argument that the left is always fighting fascism which means Hitler, which means Auschwitz. And if you disagree with him on anything, you know, you would be a person would be committing the Holocaust, you don't even worst things. So, you know, if I say no, I don't want transgender hormones to be given to these kids. You know, you're just the kind of person who would have supported the Third Reich. I mean, they should. Oh wait a minute. The only reason they say that is so that if they get the power, they can have their own version of Auschwitz in which they murder people like you who hold those views. You're totally right. I mean, I don't disagree or entirely right. Yeah, I mean, obviously, if they had power, they would be utterly destructive. But that they would do it in the name of fighting fascism. But right, but I guess what I see in common is that Hitler and Stalin and antifa today, they are at war with God. They're at war with God's view of the human person, and when they hide it when they're able to hide it, they hide it. Hitler was able to hide it for quite some time in the throw the word God around. But it seems like at this point, they're less able to hide it and that it's kind of an all out war against God and anything that is a reflection of him or his views. I agree. No, I think the traditional religion is seen as an obstacle in their way and they're going to do everything to destroy. Well, at the same time, being parasitic on it, like they'll say, you know, we believe in universal man. We don't we're against racism. Yeah, why? Why are they against racism? Why is the Marxist against racism? I'd love to know. Well, I mean, there are against racism because they believe that all people are interchangeable and they can human natures fluid and they can change everybody in the end. By the way, this is something that distinguishes them from classical fascism. Because fascists would say that people's identity is fixed. You can not change them. Whereas the left always believes that human beings are infinitely malleable and that traditional religion is among the factors that have kept, you know, that if ten people back. But only to a point, in other words when it comes to race, the radical left doesn't believe that we're malleable. It believes that things are fixed. In other words, this is where they're caught in a bird's nest of self contradiction, because when it suits them, they say that we're infinitely malleable that there are no borders anywhere, not on continents, not on land, not in our lives, not among species that it's anything can be anything until it doesn't suit their purposes and they have to define you as white and therefore racist. So it just seems to me they're doing what one does when all one cares about is power. They will say whatever they need to say and float whatever current theory or sub theory they need to float in order to gain power in order to fool the people to whom they're speaking. Yeah, I think they are driven by a hatred of human nature or anything fixed in the world. And I think it's real hatred. And I think there's hatred is mixed with this lust for power..

"Okay, I think from our perspective and I think we sort of share the same sort of liberal constitutional views, traditional but we favor freedom limited government, all these other good things, they may look the same, but they're not. I think that Italian fascism and the sort of on the low end of authoritarianism, I think that the communists are much more thorough in their efforts to control people's behavior. The right is anti Galilean. It's hierarchical. The left believes in some maybe some abstract sense, but often in some practical sense that all human beings are equal and interchangeable. But of course, it's patently hypocritical nonsense. In other words, let's not pretend because they say they believe in these things that when you look at communist societies, you see, you see Strata, you do not see everybody treated the same. So that's called hypocrisy or lying. And you see it everywhere whenever you're dealing with socialism or communism, and I think that I still don't see that the differences are that big of a deal. In fact, I agree with you that when you think about Mussolini, Muslim is a pussycat compared to Hitler or Stalin. But so these are just terms. Why don't we talk about where the term fascism comes from? I see the picture of a Roman fascism on the cover of your book, fascism. Talk about that for a moment about where the movement came from. Fascism itself. Yeah, the early fascist movement is concerned with returning to Latin Roman antiquities. Remember the phosphates was carried by the lictor who was one of the officials who normally walked in front of the console. I asked you a whopping big question just as we're going to a break. Just to show you, I'm still new with this. We'll be right back, folks. I'm talking to doctor Paul gottfried. The book is anti fascism. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Taub, and have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older, or the three week quick start for 1995, let's see if we can get you out of pain, too, go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief.

"To the Eric metaxas show with your host. Eric met Texas. Hey there folks, if you want to know what fascism was, have you ever asked what is fascism? Well, there's a book. It's called fascism. The career of a concept written by Paul got freed, did you want to know what antifa was? What is anti fascism as they call it? Well, I believe antifa or anti fascism is in fact fascism. And Paul gottfried has written a book titled anti fascism. The course of a crusade, who is Paul gottfried, you wonder, I'll tell you, first of all, he's my guest for this hour. He is the editor of chronicles. Some of you know that journal, he's an American paleo conservative philosopher historian columnist. He's a former Horace raffensperger Professor of humanities at Elizabethtown college in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania, as well as a Guggenheim recipient wow, doctor gottfried welcome to this program. Thank you for having me on. Well, it's a joy to have you on and to talk about your new book anti fascism. You had to be aware that there's something funny about the idea that you've written a book called fascism, the career of a concept followed by anti fascism, the course of a crusade. Tell us about that. Well, you know, I became interested in the subject of fascism before I was confronted by the problem of woke of the woke left, which is what we're dealing with right now. Much of my earlier scholarship, you know, dealt with political movements and movements of the right, as well as movements to the left. And I wrote a biography of Carl Schmidt, a German political theorist to influence into war fascism. So it was sort of natural that at some point I'd wrote a book on fascism as well. And in studying the book on fascism, I was informed by a person who has become sort of my mentor Stanley Payne who's probably the outstanding scholar on the subject of fascism that the best part of the book was my treatment of anti fascism. So I was urged by Stanley and then by Amy ferranto, who was my editor at Cornell University in northern Illinois university pressers. They're now merge that I should write a book on anti fascism, which I did. And as I told her, I found it much less interesting to my book on fascism because the people I was dealing with were much less intelligent, although they were generally at least as lunatic. You were surprised that the myrmidons of antifa are not geniuses this surprised you. Well, what surprised me was how stupid they are. We deal with people like Mark bray or Schneider at Yale or some of these Timothy Stanley at also at Yale's professorial philosophy they are really are Dimitri and their capacity to analyze political movements is extremely limited and driven by their obvious political agenda. Well, it's hard to find anybody in the academy at this point who's not either driven by political agenda or cowed by those driven by political agenda. We have to go backwards just because I have you here. I want to know, you know, when people talk about fascism, these words are brooded about all our lives, but then I think sometimes we say, wait a minute, wait a minute. What exactly is fascism? You know, when we think of fascism, we think of Mussolini and Hitler, when we think of bolshevism, we think of Lenin. We think of it. It isn't fascism, really, and you may disagree, but that's why I'm asking. It isn't fascism effectively no different than totalitarian communism. I mean, what does it matter that one is theoretically on the right, the other theoretically on the left? I think of this there's a golden mean of American style self government and freedom. And then whether on the left or the right, you know, it's like one is walking the tightrope. And if you fall to the left to the right, you still go down into whether it's fascism or antifa or or cultural Marxism. All of it is roughly the same in my view, it doesn't believe in freedom. Is it any is it much more complicated than that? I think it is. I think there are gradations of unfreedom or to or authoritarianism or totalitarianism. And I think that the left is inherently more totalitarian than the traditional right. Now here I would exclude the Nazis who I think represent a fusion of stalinism and certain elements of Latin fascism mixed of course together with Hitler's personality. But Italian fascism is not particularly authoritarian, it is, it does create a one party state tries to marginalize opposition, but compared to the woke, the woke left that we're dealing with today, it was not all that bad. But that's kind of the point, right? Well, I'm sorry, keep going. Keep going. So yeah. Nazism, I think, obviously represents a kind of brutal form of totalitarianism, but it was not as totalitarian as stalinism, you know, Hitler let people leave his country for a few years before he started a war. And he sort of gave up on the idea of influencing taking over universities and turning everybody into a Nazi. He was not as thorough as the world capitalist though, not the whole capitalist, but the woke left is today. Nor is your thorough as the communist in terms of trying to control people. I think there's something in the left that makes all the left inherently totalitarian. They really want to reconstruct human nature, they represent a post Christian post liberal kind of ideology, which does not allow for dissent of any kind. I think what we're seeing in the United States today is in many ways the natural working out of leftist ideology. Well, yes. But I guess I'm just going to ask a lot of questions just because I have you, Paul gottfried as my guest that I'm fascinated that I can get answers to things I've wondered about for a long time. Why would we say that fascism or nazism is on the right. And the radical left is on the left. I don't get it. In other words, to me, freedom is freedom. And when you veer away from freedom, in other words, what is the big difference between what we will call fascism under Hitler and totalitarianism under the Chinese today or the Soviets?.

"Gottfried, thank you. Thank you for having me. Don't tell them how you follow me give me a break. What a day we need help. Oh, my goodness. I'm not coming in the studio anymore. We're going to have a crazy day like this crazy. First you get that Ben Carson guy. Come on. You know, brain surgeon really. It's easy to say. Yeah. I haven't seen any videotapes of him doing any brain surgery. Godfrey talking about antifa. Now tomorrow, we're going to be talking to my friend Norman stone. Yes. He has a film out folks just do this, please go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com. C. S. Lewis movie dot com. Don't forget, I think tomorrow we're going to Brian kilmeade on. Yeah, we're having Brian kilmeade and Norman stone tomorrow. One of the other no, no, I think we're gonna both of them tomorrow. Okay. All right. Let me ask. Let me ask folks. Did you know ladies and gentlemen, I found out that you can still get my new book for $15. I thought this was an only for the first week or two weeks or pre order or something. But if you go to my website, Eric metaxas dot com. Now you're going to want to get many copies for Christmas. I know you do. I know when you see the book, you're going to say, ah ha. Yes. I only wish I could get it for less than it's available at these other websites. Well, I'm here to tell you that last night I learned you can, but you have to go to my website, Eric metaxas dot com. When you click on the book page and you scroll down, I think it's the baker book link. There's a lot of links there. But 1497 or $15 or whatever it is, trust me when I tell you, that is a crazy steal for this book. The response to it has been actually better than I hoped. It's been fantastic. But you have to go to Eric metaxas dot com. I want you to know about that. I also want you to know that if you go to my store dot com, the bonoff or posters, we still have some, but they're selling well, which I'm not surprised because we price everything as low as we can. But if you want to be inspired and we need to be inspired, I was talking about the other day in Wichita, we need to inspire each other. And the bonhoeffer poster says, it's the famous quote often attributed to him, but not actually attributable to him. So you can say that Eric metaxas came up with it. But the quote which is, unfortunately, very applicable to where we are now. Is silence in the face of evil? Is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak not to act as to act. God will not hold us guiltless. So if you look the other way when you see bad things happening, if you look the other way when you see people abusing their power, forcing kids to wear masks, you've got to speak up when things are going on and you don't speak up in the school board. You need to speak up. Don't let anyone intimidate you or threaten you that you're a domestic terrorist. Unless you think you actually are a domestic terrorist, in which case, stay home. But we've got to speak up. We've got to push back. So if you go to my store dot com, use code Eric, you can get the bond offer posters and most of my books. You know what's really funny years ago I'd always hard to expression all politics are local. Well, we're finding that out today. It really starts at the local level. And then it kind of works its way up. And it's become local again, because we've seen how mayors and governors are abusing their power just on an outrageous level. We never thought we'd see it in America. But if you're not part of pushing back somehow, look, you can just write a check to one of the organizations that is doing good. I won't mention any. But the point is there are all kinds of people fighting, you need to get in the fight and I want to encourage you to do that. I also want to say that I think we're done. Really? I think I've covered.

"gottfried" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"So I like to do it. Folks I'm talking to doctor Paul Godfrey the author of anti fascism the course of a crusade. Doctor gottfried, maybe the most disturbing thing about what we can just call woke ideology, this madness, which is cultural Marxism, is that major multinational corporations seem to be a betting this, the Democratic Party, which used to be an American party, is aiding and abetting this. How do we explain multinational organizations? Seemingly having zero values, not caring about human beings, not caring about Uyghur Muslims in China and just not only going along with this or the same as the NBA or Nike. How do we explain that? Yeah, I think that's a complicated problem. And it's one that, you know, I don't think adequately addressed in my book, because like you I am puzzled by what I'm saying, clearly these corporate capitalists do not believe they're going to be they're going to be expropriated. And they don't take the socialist aspect of the woke left seriously. I think they do. They're obviously not the totality of what they left is pushing, but they are an aspect of it. But I think many of these world capitalists are themselves imbued with will ideology. They believe this stuff. You know, just as there were German plutocrats who may well have believed in what the Nazis said and we're not simply going along for the ride or because they were being forced to. I think other woke capitalists are following the path of least resistance. They know that if they do something that the left doesn't like, the left may use violence against them. The less other calories of products. Since we don't have a ton of time, let's cut to the chase. They're cowards. They are throwing other people under the bus. So that they don't get in trouble. They're throwing people out of the sleigh. So the wolves can get those people and they can continue on the step. I agree. No, I think a lot of this is cowardice. I think they think they can survive and there are fortunes will not be taken away as long as they, you know, follow the lead of the left and do what the left ones and give money to BLM. There's lots of woe capitalists and it's going to be a money that's going to be OM. There's hundreds of millions of dollars that they've given. And it's not something matter of getting the Democratic Party. They give it to the people who are the hell razors causing violence, hoping that their business establishments or their buildings will not be affected. It's like paying the mob. In other words, they have no values except survival. Right. No, I think I think you're absolutely right. And they also, of course, give money to the Democratic Party and occasionally they host things for BLM leaders, people associated with antifa. No, they're utterly corrupt. Okay, are these not simply limousine liberals? Is this not Leonard Bernstein in the black Panthers? Take us back to that era which you remember. How is it any different? I think that should be the beginning. You know, and if you remember the Lake Tom wolf wrote a very good work on this, you know, the Leonard Bernstein's party and how all these incipient woke capitalists were invited. But I think what we're seeing is much worse. You know, it's not simply a matter of coming out occasionally for some leftist cause or radical cause, which is what wolf is pillaring. It's people who devote a lot of money and a lot of energy to pushing the world left. And who are closely allied with it, and we'll go ahead and fire people who are not politically correct. One of the things I point in my book is the attempt to impose gender free language on people on their workforces, which meant these capitalists they're doing. They never seem to miss a beat. I mean, whether it's a matter of supporting, you know, black thugs, antifa riots, or, you know, coming out for transgender ring and so forth, they seem to buy, you know, the whole 9 yards. Well, again, I would simply say the reason Leonard Bernstein and his pals didn't do what their equivalents are doing today is because they didn't yet have the power. They were on their way, they were only beginning the march through the institutions back then, and they did what they could. Yeah, I don't think there was radical because the age in which they were living. The age in which I lived, you know, I was a young man then. Was not as radical as so culturally radical as it has become. I have no doubt that if they were around, they would be, you know, the world capitalist today, because if you look at people, I don't like Harry Bella fun day. It was sort of a kind of generic liberal back in the 1960s. Well, you know, now he's supporting Black Lives Matter in his old age. So, I mean, these people keep moving to the left. I mean, they're driven when I say about the force of a bench in the force of their own ideology. But, you know, back in the 1960s, people were not as open to the cultural radicalism that has now overtaken us. Well, but again, the intellectuals, whether it's Lillian hellman or Jean-Paul Sartre, they it really is the same thing. It's just that now it's kind of coming back to bite them. And some of them are waking up and they're saying, hey, wait a minute. Why can't I joke about this or I can't joke about that? I mean, imagine if Lenny Bruce were alive today, I wonder what he would say. Yeah, I think we're dealing with, you know, it's not so much ideology here as personalities. There are people who feel alienated from bourgeois Christian society. Who are going to alive with whatever is on the left. So, you know, we're not dealing with the Communist Party that Joe McCarthy attacked any longer. Because, you know, the Soviet empire is gone. You don't have that option..

"Gottfried, the author of anti fascism. The course of a crusade. For whom did you write this book, doctor gottfried? I see on the cover. It looks like a Marxist activist planning his flag. Antifa, anti fascist style themselves as somehow on the left, the good guys, they're against nazism, but they're more horrible or as horrible as the Nazis ever were, or were they aspired to be as horrible. Yeah, one of the arguments that they can the book is that they always see themselves as being in the interwar European struggle between fascism and communism. You know, the Popular Front on one side and then the reactionary Spanish government and the the Nazis and the coming in the Italian fascists and so forth. They see themselves as still involved in a struggle that took place a long time ago. And they they typically shied with the communists, which is interesting, although the communists their homophobic sexist, all the things that were not supposed to do here. Anti semitic people around defending a cag of ara, who was a racist, a real racist. They'll defend Castro. They want to identify themselves with what in their mind is an eternal left. So they always see themselves involved in the interwar struggling fascism, which goes on and on, you know, it never ends. But what they have in common, of course, and I mean, I always want to try to make this point is that antifa, which says we're anti fascist. And so called fascists and cultural marxists and actual marxists and on and on and on. What they all have in common is they reject the God of the Bible and the values of the God of the Bible, which values have led to self government on the American model, have led to the dignity of everyone, have led us away from slavery. In other words, they reject that that God, and they reject that kind of freedom and government and attempt to replace it with something which they themselves don't really seem to know what it is. It seems to be this chimera, they're never going to get there, but they keep talking about it. And I think if we finally kill enough people, we'll finally achieve what we want. No, I think you're right. It's very clear what they reject. It's less clear what they want. And particularly when you get to the woke left, I mean, it's and all they do is cancel and riot and do things like that. The communists the old fashioned communists had some vestigial marks as view that at the end of this process, we're going to have a socialist society and the state will wither away. Of course it never happened. You know? And in practice, they behave like Nazis, but at least in theory, this was going to happen. The president woke up, I'm actually the event of a vision beyond being destructive. Nihilistic. I think there were niggles and thus apply to them. And the hypocrisy to me is absolutely glaring. They don't seem to care if Muslims are sexist. They abuse women. It's only if white Christians do this, you know. And now what's the reason for that? What is it? I mean, I have a theory. Why do you say that they could be that? Just almost unbelievably hypocritical and self contradictory. I mean, you're quite right. They will ally themselves with Muslim radicals who ostensibly stand for everything against what they stand for. Why? Because they hate their own society, and they hate the society of their ancestors. You see this particularly among among Germans. And I was a German historian that presented impression day Germany, you know, Muslims are glorified, even if they're sexist, whatever, even if they can make crimes against women to cover the political level cover up for them all the time was happening here in the United States. Because they're driven by what they hate and take their own civilization and the hate to ancestral civilization. And that I think is maybe even more important than their loss for power in the end. Is this hatred? Yeah, the hatred. It's interesting to me because what we're talking about really is post logical. In other words, they would say that logic is a patriarchal construct. You're not going to fool me with your brilliant arguments, my rage will kill you and your stupid arguments, and I will have my way. So it's a nietzschean nihilistic will to power masquerading as something more complicated. Yeah, I think there is a will to power, but I think there's also this blind hatred and just bullying. They like to bully. That may be the more powerful the world will to power, which is they're going to push other people around. People whom they have content. And unfortunately, the people for whom they have just given all the time, you know, they are absolutely no backbone. That's why that's why this process of hectoring and bullying goes on. Well, I mean, you could take this but I always think of, you know, the Columbia University president's office being taken over by teenage thugs because already in 1968, this spirit was roaming abroad in the land, the adults figured we've got nothing to say the young people. It's like this Russo Ian idea of the innocent young people are gonna teach us the way of the future, which is just it's utterly preposterous, but it's been going on now for over 50 years. I agree. I'm old enough to remember that. And I said, it's just the professor at K west reserve when this was going on. We were also taken over by the leftist thugs. And the reaction of the older faculty is, you know, their young people, and we really have injustice in our society and so forth. It was very little attempt to resist this. Okay, we're going to go to another, yet another break, very.

"I mean, obviously, if they had power, they would be utterly destructive. But that they would do it in the name of fighting fascism. But right, but I guess what I see in common is that Hitler and Stalin and antifa today, they are at war with God. They're at war with God's view of the human person, and when they hide it when they're able to hide it, they hide it. Hitler was able to hide it for quite some time and they throw the word God around. But it seems like at this point, they're less able to hide it and that it's kind of an all out war against God and anything that is a reflection of him or his views. I agree. No, I think the traditional religion is seen as an obstacle in their way and they're going to do everything to destroy. Well, at the same time, being parasitic on it, like they'll say, you know, we believe in universal man. We don't we're against racism. Yeah, why? Why are they against racism? Why is the Marxist against racism? I'd love to know. Well, I mean, there are dense racism because they believe that all people are interchangeable and they can human natures fluid and they can change everybody in the end. By the way, this is something that distinguishes them from classical fascism because fascists would say that people's identities fixed. You can not change them. Whereas the left always believes that human beings are infinitely malleable and that traditional religion is among the factors that have kept, you know, that if ten people back. But only to a point. In other words, when it comes to race, the radical left doesn't believe that we're malleable. It believes that things are fixed. In other words, this is where they're caught in a bird's nest of self contradiction, because when it suits them, they say that we're infinitely malleable that there are no borders anywhere, not on continents, not on land, not in our lives, not among species that it's anything can be anything until it doesn't suit their purposes and they have to define you as white and therefore racist. So it just seems to me they're doing what one does when all one cares about is power. They will say whatever they need to say and float whatever current theory or sub theory they need to float in order to gain power in order to fool the people to whom they're speaking. Yeah, I think they are driven by a hatred of human nature or anything fixed in the world. And I think it's real hatred. And I think there's hatred is mixed with this lust for power. They do hate white male cushions, you know? Who they should use the enemy? And this comes out, you know, in many, many ways. And it contradicts I think as you pointed out this invocation of universalism and everybody being done, there are fixed groups when they're really out to get. And I think in this way, they're very similar to the Nazis. And they're politics of hate, which of course they pretend to be something else. Well, I mean, of course, it's a little bit complicated. I really do think that these monsters themselves don't know what they're about exactly because it's not intellectually consistent, so they can't really know they're at the mercy of these demons that on the one hand cause them to talk about universal brotherhood and the other hand to say, I hate everybody in this group. So it's almost a comical level of miscommunication. We're going to go to a break folks. I'm talking to doctor Paul gottfried, gottfried, Paul gottfried is the.

"Hey the folks suck in a Paul gottfried, the author of many books, the editor of chronicles. One book we're discussing is fascism, the concept, and then the new book, anti fascism, the course of a crusade. You were just answering my big question, doctor gottfried about what is fascism and how did it start? So if you don't mind, go back to what you were saying about how you have the Mussolini looking back to this era of Roman antiquity, go ahead. Yeah, all fascist movements, what I call generic fascist movements. And I think the Nazis represent a more complicated and brutal model. But all sort of generic fascism, which is essentially Latin fascism wants to return to Roman antiquity. They're always backward looking. This is one thing that clearly distinguishes them from the left. The left rejects the past. You know, it wants to go into a future that it is creating for us. In monstrous future, when I don't care to live in, but they are rejecting the past. I mean, that's why the left runs around tearing down statues and telling you that, you know, all white people and their history is evil. Because they want to create something new, whereas the fascists are always trying to return, you know, to some idealized pass usually a pre Christian pass and I think you see this in the phosphates, which are featured on the cover of my book on fascists and they're so called bundle of sticks with the axe. Well, okay, so but this seems to me, these are in some ways peripheral differences. Because, okay, you say, oh, conservatives want to go back to the past. The hard left wants to go back into some utopian pseudo future and yet when you look at the Nazis and you look at antifa today, there's a brutality. They are really unwilling. The reason you say post Christian or pre Christian, rather, it seems to me that actual Christianity, the Bible scares these folks because these folks are all about power and they know that power can not coexist with inalienable rights with the sanctity of the human being. So they have to crush that, otherwise they can't succeed. They have that in common. Yeah, I agree with you about that. I affect the first chapter of my book on anti fascism, deals with a similarities between a BLM and the antifa movements and the brown shirts under the Nazis. They exactly the same tactics, and they also have both had wide support systems. There was some sympathy for what they were doing among the populace. Which is not true, by the way about the American Communist Party in the United States, which was always isolated, even if it represented Soviet subversion, but that was, you know, they put people in the State Department. The communists did not have the kind of power that BLM and the woke left Dustin. But that's the point. That's why they've reinvented themselves as BLM and antifa. So they are basically those communists having gone through the long march to the institutions in a different form calling themselves anti fascist or BLM, they're all cultural marxists. And they just have changed the terminology. That's how I see it. Yeah, I think the cultural marxists are far more dangerous than the regular marxists, because they're trying to destroy human nature in a way that marxists did not. I mean, the Marxist tried to change things so through economically, they created, you know, monstrous economies. They created totalitarian societies. They did not make a war against gender roles. They did not. There was no need for them to do that. They made a war against anything that threatened them and they weren't able to use that as a lever at that time. But if you think about what people went through in the gulag, I mean, it really was to unmake the person in the same way that the Chinese communist dictators are trying to do with Uyghur Muslims. They're trying to crush you. They will leave you alone only if you don't threaten them. You know, I agree. I mean, you know, the actual Marxist in power were more brutal, but then they had more opportunity. And it was less resistance once they took over. But I but I think what the cultural marks is they're aiming at is much more diabolical. Which is totally to destroy any traditional human relations that have existed until now. The marxists never went quite that far. And it is the pervasiveness of this woke ideology throughout every western form of democracy that I find the most terrifying aspect of their project. I mean, there's so little control against them, whereas, you know, you could always attack marks just underground to the wrecking the economy and people are going to be poor. But, you know, until the election in Virginia, I really didn't see very much pushback. But don't you think just because it hasn't been clear? People have lost who said it, cultural confidence. And so you let that you let the visigoths in because you don't have any cultural will. You don't know who you are, but when things get bad enough as they have in the last year or so, especially, suddenly people wake up, suddenly people say, hey, wait a minute. This is madness on every front. What's going on? I mean, I really think that finally, many Americans who were just kind of letting it ride understand that they can't. You know, I think that's true. They will also have been indoctrinated at so many different levels into so many institutions. That sort of weakened the resistance to this. And, you know, my book on anti fascism I make the argument that the left is always fighting fascism which means Hitler, which means Auschwitz. And if you disagree with him on anything, you know, you would be a person would be committing the Holocaust. You go even worse things. So, you know, if I say no, I don't want transgender hormones to be given to these kids. You know, you're just the kind of person who would have supported the Third Reich. I mean, they should. Oh wait a minute. The only reason they say that is so that if they get the power, they can have their own version of Auschwitz in which they murder people like you who hold those views. You're totally right. I mean, I don't disagree or entirely right..

"Why would we say that fascism or nazism is on the right. And the radical left is on the left. I don't get it. In other words, to me, freedom is freedom. And when you veer away from freedom, in other words, what is the big difference between what we will call fascism under Hitler and totalitarianism under the Chinese today or the Soviets? Okay, I think from our perspective and I think we sort of share the same sort of liberal constitutional views, traditional but we favor freedom unlimited government, all these other good things, they may look the same, but they're not. I think that Italian fascism and the sort of on the low end of authoritarianism, I think that the communists are much more thorough in their efforts to control people's behavior. The right is anti Galilean. It's hierarchical. The left believes in some maybe some abstractions, but often in some practical sense that all human beings are equal and interchangeable. But of course, it's patently hypocritical nonsense. In other words, let's not pretend because they say they believe in these things that when you look at communist societies, you see, you see Strata, you do not see everybody treated the same. So that's called hypocrisy. We're lying. And you see it everywhere whenever you're dealing with socialism or communism, and I think that I still don't see that the differences are that big of a deal. In fact, I agree with you that when you think about Mussolini, Mussolini is a pussycat compared to Hitler. Or Stalin. But so these are just terms. Why don't we talk about where the term fascism comes from? I see the picture of a Roman fascism on the cover of your book, fascism. I'm talking about that for a moment about where the movement came from fascism itself. Yeah, the early fascist movement is concerned with returning to Latin Roman antiquities. Remember, the phosphates was carried by the lictor who was one of the officials walked in front of the console. I asked you a whopping big question just as we're going to a break. Just to show you, I'm still new with this. We'll be right back, folks. I'm talking to doctor Paul gottfried, the book is anti fascism. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start for 1995, let's see if we can get you out of pain, too, go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com.

"Have you ever asked what is fascism? Well, there's a book. It's called fascism. The career of a concept written by Paul got freed, did you want to know what antifa was? What is anti fascism as they call it? Well, I believe antifa or anti fascism is in fact fascism. And Paul Godfrey has written a book titled anti fascism. The course of a crusade, who is Paul gottfried, you wonder, I'll tell you, first of all, he's my guest for this hour. He is the editor of chronicles. Some of you know that journal, he's an American paleo conservative philosopher historian columnist. He's a former Horace raffensperger Professor of humanities at Elizabethtown college in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania, as well as a Guggenheim recipient wow, doctor gottfried welcome to this program. Thank you for having me on. Well, it's a joy to have you on and to talk about your new book anti fascism. You had to be aware that there's something funny about the idea that you've written a book called fascism, the career of a concept followed by anti fascism, the course of a crusade. Tell us about that. Well, you know, I became interested in the subject of fascism before I was confronted by the problem of woke of the woke left, which is what we're dealing with right now. Much of my earlier scholarship, you know, dealt with political movements and movements of the right, as well as movements to the left. And I wrote a biography of Carl Schmidt, a German political theorist who influenced into war fascism. So sort of natural that at some point I wrote a book on fascism as well. And in studying the book on fascism, I was informed by a person who has become sort of my mentor Stanley Payne who's probably the outstanding scholar on the subject of fascism that the best part of the book was my treatment of anti fascism. So I was urged by Stanley and then by Amy ferranto, who was my editor at Cornell University in northern Illinois university presses. They're now merged that I should write a book on anti fascism, which I did. And as I told her, I found it much less interesting to my book on fascism because the people I was dealing with were much less intelligent, although they were generally at least as lunatic. You were surprised that the myrmidons of antifa are not geniuses this surprised you. Well, what surprised me was how stupid they are. We deal with people like Mark bray or Schneider at Yale or some of these Timothy Stanley at also at Yale's professorial philosophy. They are really arguing which and their capacity to analyze political movements is extremely limited and driven by their obvious political agenda. Well, it's hard to find anybody in the academy at this point who's not either driven by political agenda or cowed by those driven by political agenda. We have to go backwards just because I have you here. I want to know, you know, when people talk about fascism, these words are brooded about all our lives, but then I think sometimes we say, wait a minute, wait a minute. What exactly is fascism? You know, when we think of fascism, we think of Mussolini and Hitler, when we think of bolshevism, we think of Lenin. We think of it. It isn't fascism, really, and you may disagree, but that's why I'm asking. It isn't fascism effectively no different than totalitarian communism. I mean, what does it matter that one is theoretically on the right, the others theoretically on the left? I think of this there's a golden mean of American style self government and freedom. And then whether on the left or the right, you know, it's like one is walking the tightrope. And if you fall to the left to the right, you still go down into whether it's fascism or antifa or or cultural Marxism. All of it is roughly the same in my view, it doesn't believe in freedom. Is it any is it much more complicated than that? I think it is. I think there are gradations of unfreedom or to or authoritarianism or totalitarianism. And I think that the left is inherently more totalitarian than the traditional right. Now here I would exclude the Nazis who I think represent a fusion of stalinism and certain elements of Latin fascism mixed, of course, together with Hitler's personality. But Italian fascism is not particularly authoritarian, it is it does create a one party state tries to marginalize opposition, but compared to the woke left that we're dealing with today, it was not all that bad. But that's kind of the point, right? Well, I'm sorry, keep going. Keep going. So yeah. Nazism, I think, obviously represents a kind of brutal form of totalitarianism, but it was not as totalitarian as stalinism, you know, Hitler let people leave his country for a few years before he started a war. And he sort of gave up on the idea of influencing taking over universities and turning everybody into a Nazi. He was not as thorough as the world capitalist though and not the well capitalist but the woke left is today. Nor is your thorough as to communist in terms of trying to control people. I think there's something in the left that makes all the left inherently totalitarian. They really want to reconstruct human nature, they represent a post Christian post liberal kind of ideology, which does not allow for dissent of any kind. I think what we're seeing in the United States today is in many ways the natural working out of leftist ideology well, yes, but I guess I'm just going to ask a lot of questions just because I have you, Paul gottfried as my guest that I'm fascinated that I can get answers to things I've wondered about for a long time..

Author Paul Gottfried Has Written the Book on Fascism... And Antifascism

"And Paul Godfrey has written a book titled anti fascism. The course of a crusade, who is Paul gottfried, you wonder, I'll tell you, first of all, he's my guest for this hour. He is the editor of chronicles. Some of you know that journal, he's an American paleo conservative philosopher historian columnist. He's a former Horace raffensperger Professor of humanities at Elizabethtown college in Elizabethtown Pennsylvania, as well as a Guggenheim recipient wow, doctor gottfried welcome to this program. Thank you for having me on. Well, it's a joy to have you on and to talk about your new book anti fascism. You had to be aware that there's something funny about the idea that you've written a book called fascism, the career of a concept followed by anti fascism, the course of a crusade. Tell us about that. Well, you know, I became interested in the subject of fascism before I was confronted by the problem of woke of the woke left, which is what we're dealing with right now. Much of my earlier scholarship, you know, dealt with political movements and movements of the right, as well as movements to the left. And I wrote a biography of Carl Schmidt, a German political theorist who influenced into war fascism. So sort of natural that at some point I wrote a book on fascism as well. And in studying the book on fascism, I was informed by a person who has become sort of my mentor Stanley Payne who's probably the outstanding scholar on the subject of fascism that the best part of the book was my treatment of anti fascism. So I was urged by Stanley and then by Amy ferranto, who was my editor at Cornell University in northern Illinois university presses. They're now merged that I should write a book on anti fascism, which I did. And as I told her, I found it much less interesting to my book on fascism because the people I was dealing with were much less

"Dirty jokes. Dvd ends with title cards saying based on death of a salesman. By arthur miller. I y but as touring touring. Stand up comedian. Do you relate to willie loman. Well i often said like with my podcast. I often quoted. Death of a salesman with attention must be paid. Because i like to quote autho miller my other quote from arthur miller is hey i just fucked marilyn monroe. Do you relate to traveling. Do you feel like you're traveling salesman. Sometimes oh my god. When i am traveling when i'm outta town and i'm lugging my suitcase around. I mean she'll feels. I know how took them so long to say. Hey put wheels on a suitcase. That was seems like that should have been when they invented. Course i remember years being without we and it was just really but now looking it is still or i still feel like a traveling salesmen. You mentioned that you Hope that the club owners going to cancel anytime every time you go on. My fantasy is always sat out waiting backstage and the owner will come back and say that there was a fire or flood and now the places has been destroyed his check. You can go home. Have you ever had a show that was canceled that you and feel actually like a relief. I've never had it canceled where i was backstage. But i've had it canceled a lot of times where i'll be book someplace and for some reason you know at the place will go out of business or it'll be a different owner to which over and say. Oh that that jobs cancel go. Oh what a relief. What do you still do it. Have you considered you could cancel the dates yourself by booking them. Yeah that that would be too much control of my own hypertrophy and as you know it is what you do. In the documentary. Anthony gentlemen described as the ultimate comedian's comedian. What what does that mean to you. It means the audience doesn't find me. What is this and so okay on the other side. What does it mean that comedians do. But it is when you say these so-and-so's so and so is always like you know. If you say the musician's musician it means they say someone who like day they know what crap and watch good you know and they they have a much higher standard. Do you think you'd like more than if the audience elected but rather be meetings comedian than it. Audiences comedian Well if i could be a comedian's comedian and still get booked tachibana and still paid this amount. Do you have any any stories of any other times. You and sort of a weird place or any other times you did it that you remember Particularly notable good times bad times the longest lasting one. I remember one time being on stage. And i started being dirty and somebody yelled out. Hey i'm here with my five year old daughter. And i said well gee often take your five year old daughter someplace to get drunk. It's like rats and it's so but yes the act is taking a daughter just Oh my god yes. i think. I was hidden in rochester new york and there was a club can't believe i almost forgot this one. There was a club that by law had to have a deaf interpreter onstage. Now i very rarely. I don't do the aristocratic much. But i thought holy shit to be able to do the aristocrats and be that gross that disgusting and that preferred and have. This woman acted out. Holy christ i have to and i immediately walked over next to the here deaf interpreter and said family walks and by then the audience when their minds of course they knew what was going to happen. And i'm there. And i'm watching the woman as i'm saying it saying and the sun blows his father and then dog is fucking them other and and she acts out all of it and i gotta say i admired her greatly. We're the people in the audience or do they have to be there regardless of their stuff. I there were some. you know. that's the funny thing. The reason they got her is because some deaf guy complain that they need to have a persian as an interpreter and then they said when they did it that this guy was complaining that it wasn't the proper interpretation and and they said this. That guys are total prick. We tried to feel sorry for. We really wanted a feel bad for him..

"That and don't bother me. I could have been home watching guy. I don't know how to broker answers but it in way you set up your self at your. I joke that they did not respond to was a wet. Was you being the first person to make a joke about it. And though the aristocrats is not a joke about it it is a joke. That says this joke. I'm telling a nine eleven happened. Everyone else is doing jokes. And they're sort of ignoring. I always love. Like i always a big fan of henny youngman and henny youngman would go out there. And you know they'd be roasting whoever You know ronald reagan and neo. Go up and goes. It's a pleasure being at this rose for ronald reagan. My wife bakes cake. Had nothing to do with anything going on. What did you sort of learn from this. What was your takeaway. Nothing guy. i'm not. I'm not sure mark person. I'm one of those that touch usa fence kitchen electrical shock and goes. Oh well. i've just happened that one time. Let me touch again. Let me touch your ten more time. So speaking of you touching electrical and other time. And and i do not feel like we need to rehash the entire story of the affleck and japanese tsunami stuff happened there. Yeah real big and you end up talking about it. All the time you can find but Quickly the japanese tsunami happened. You tweeted some stuff. Got mad athletic. You can't be the duck anymore But going through these two things and so in their aristocrats documentary. George carlin talks about context. Comedy what is your relationship context. What have you learned about the importance of context. Do you care about context context. It's it's a weird thing like when people say. Are you sorry about what you did with the sioux nami jokes and i always say the same thing. I'm always sorry. About loosing dime joy. But i it just feels. I can't with a straight face. Say all gi. Feel sorry. i made jokes. Because that's what you do. Yeah it's like they were reporting on that like you think someone blew up the moon or something. It was that big an event on the news and they would report it and they would always say they never used the term joe they would always say comments and remarks because if you say jokes in your mind ju- mind immediately goes what the fuck are. We getting all upset about a joke. A news person talking about jokes and it was a lesson for a lot of people like that. Some people don't treat to remove your gilbert gottfried to yourself anti-people no you are remove that then it just like guys said mean things immediately after terrible thing happen yes and remove comedian and jokes. It is man makes famous. Man makes means statements of after a terrible thing happened. Yeah well while we're in this area. I wanted to ask about a specific word choice in the version of the aristocrats that we play dirty jokes. You use the word for let's say female genitalia. That's somewhat argue especially by man. I is hurtful Why do you use it. Why why do you feel like that. Is the right word to use in this chip. Well it's kind of like if you use a cleaner word. Then what's the point and telling the joke you to do. I could do a clean version of the aristocrats where i go And then they are hug each other and then they kiss each other on the cheek. The aristocrats in this context especially. It's you especially. The album is called dirty jokes right. So it's like. It's not a dirty joke if you don't do it like it's the same thing like you're saying about doing the nine eleven joke which is using it to signify that you know it's wrong to use it. Yeah and that's what i mean when i say every one of those jokes has its own hidden. Built-in apology or because everybody. You don't have to say afterwards. Oh it was bad. And i had no idea i had no idea when i said blow job that was a dirty term and you know say at garage mother. I used to say it to my grandma but only on the jewish holiday surprisingly You got a lot of positive response from telling the the hefner russia and also how replayed in the aristocrats Including as a book one famous fan backstage at the tonight show. I was wondering if you wanted to share that. Stall why i somebody called up my name and i turned around which i have a habit of doing hotel my knee and it was harrison ford and he said to me that he complimented me on my telling of the aristocrats joke and how much it made him laugh and this one of those stories that i cringe every time i think of it. It's kind of like any time. I've tried to ask a girl out. I remember every fucking word. I said and go away. Why did you say that. That's my whole life so instead of the right thing to do which would have said which would have been. Oh i thank you you know. I loved bladerunner. You know. that would have been fine. And he would have been flattered. And i could've walked away like a human being but i go. I figure oh. I gotta be funny now so i said oh thank you and your name is and i kind of felt like.

Strategies for Eating Healthier

"Hello and welcome to the nutrition diva podcast. I'm your host Monica Rheingau and week I'm reviewing some brand new research on the types of strategies that are most effective in changing people's behavior for the better so if you've ever struggled to change the each season of knowing host Christie West Guard will take you for an inside look at an iconic entertainer the first season is all about Robin Williams in this short eight episode autobiography you'll hear never before heard interviews from people who worked with Robin and knew him best and you'll hear from comedians like Gilbert Gottfried and Chris get hard about how Robin inspired them to push the boundaries of comedy listen for a moving portrait of an unforgettable icon just search for knowing colon robin Liam's on your favorite podcast APP could your eating habits be a little better well you're in good company despite decades of haranguing by parents health professionals government agencies and podcasters the average American is still taking in too much sugar too many highly processed foods and too few fruits and vegetables we're taking in too many calories and too few nutrients as a result we tend to be both overweight and undernourished the causes of these dietary indiscretions are well documented the proliferation of cheap high-calorie Hyper Palatable Food and beverages as well as the normalization of huge portion sizes and constant snacking have created an environment and culture in which it takes superhuman hurt and willpower to not overeat the question is how do we change all this put calories on restaurant menus hide the ice cream in the the freezer served dinner on smaller dinner plates post healthy eating messages and cafeterias break rooms and on our refrigerators at home you name it someone has tried it and many of these strategies work at least a little but are any of them really making a dent what are the most effective ways to encourage healthy behaviors that will ultimately result in improved health a pair of French researchers Roman KC and Pierre Shangdong set out to find out the identified ninety six different research studies that employed various strategies for nudging people toward healthy choices and they compared there else to determine which seemed to be the most effective for this particular study the researchers calculated how each nudge impacted total calorie intake. now. Admittedly reducing calories is not the only way that a nudge might improve your nutrition but with obesity being such a primary concern it's certainly relevant and this metric does allow us to compare the effects of a lot of different types of interventions a nudge in this case was defined as any that altered people's behaviors without outright forbidding something or using economic incentives for example if an employer wanted to incur urge their employees to drink less soda and more water they could remove all the soda from the vending machines or double the price of the soda so that the bottled water it was much cheaper but neither one of those would be nudges a nudge is something that influences the choices that you make or in the language of the researchers alters the choice architecture without removing your ability to make or afford a different choice and the researchers found that none She's divided themselves into three categories cognitive strategies try to affect what you know they aim to make you think a bit more before making yourself election or taking a bite cognitive nudges include things like adding calorie counts to restaurant menus or in the case of our employer who wants their employees to drink less soda a cognitive nudge might be to hang a poster next to the soda machine showing how much sugar is in a twenty ounce bottle of soda and other type of cognitive nudge is using logos or icons to identify healthier choices so putting a heart icon on high fiber cereals or a little Broccoli icon next to lower calorie menu items would both be examples of this type of nudge over the past tanner twenty years a lot of energy and money has been invested in cognitive dodges like adding calorie counts two menus and changing the way calories are displayed unpackaged foods unfortunately of all the three types of ages. Cognitive strategies are the least impactful in terms of average impact on calorie intake cognitive nudges reduced typical intake by about six fifty four calories per day the second category of nudges our affective strategies these try to change the way you feel about food or behavior without necessarily changing what you know affect of nudges include applying appealing words and images to healthy choices instead of offering you aside of carrots I might offer you citrus infused glazed spring carrots on a menu I might include beautiful photographs of the Salads but not the fried foods another type of affect of nudge is known as the healthy eating call this is when a sign or a server suggests that a certain choice is more desirable would you like to split a desert with the table or we can substitute a salad for the fries if you prefer or are pasta also comes in half portions instead of trying to inform you about the nutritional attributes of a food affect of strategies focused on making certain foods more desirable or influencing how you feel about a certain choice these appeals to the senses the emotions are somewhat more effective than appeals to reason in terms of reducing calorie intake affect nudges are almost twice as impactful as cognitive ones reducing energy intake by about one hundred thirty calories a day or about seven point five percent as you may have guessed by now the third category of nudges turned out to be the most effective of all and tell you all about what that was right after this break to thank our sponsors support for today's show comes from bare minerals creators of clean beauty bare minimum else believes in pure formulation and uncompromising performance they believe that make up and skin care should make your skin better not just better looking bare minerals damn the clean beauty revolution in nineteen ninety-five with their best selling original foundation it offers creamy lightweight coverage that's naturally luminous the clean formula things only five ingredients all minerals including non-chemical SPF protection it's makeup so pure you can sleep in it the bare mineral formula those are clean without compromise and they're all one hundred percent cruelty free so upgrade to clean beauty products use the foundation finder at bare minerals dot com to find perfect match and first time customers get fifteen percent off with the Promo Code diva that's bare minerals dot com Promo code diva for fifteen percent off your first just bare minerals the power of good today's episode was also supported by molecule molecule is re imagining the future of clean air starting with the air purifier molecule destroys indoor air pollutants at a molecular level removing them from the air that you breathe the technology has been verified by science but most importantly it's been tested by real people molecule has offered asthma and allergy sufferers around the country and all new experience one moore even said she was able to breathe through her nose for the first time in fifteen years and now molecule offers their breakthrough pico technology across a wide range of advocation solutions for your entire home for ten percent off your first order of an air purifier visit molecule dot com and enter diva ten checkout that's M.

"The the structure of a hacker thon is dissimilar from how a software engineer is typically working so the way software engineers typically working is in a quiet room oftentimes by themselves and they're just just solving a problem in their spending. You know eight hours on this small problem that is a subset of of a larger application a hacker. John is a is a more condensed frenetically paced environment where a programmer is working around a large number of other people. Why is it that is useful? Despite the fact that it's it's so different than how a programmers typically working in a productive context for one you're not building as part of a larger team or project and so the constraints are a little bit different but I think the the way you described it as pretty accurate right. It's a little frenetic. It's a little crazy you know when you go to Akhavan the has like a thousand people sitting in a room coating. It's not like a silent the environment it's almost somewhere between a party and a classroom. Obviously people aren't like binge drinking and hanging out with the hacker thon it's a much more you know professional environment than that but they are having fun and for a lot of the students who go it's a social experience that as much as it is educational or professional and so you can kind of think of it like a microcosm of what it means to code when you're working on a project and you get into that like flow state where you're really like like thinking clearly and producing good work and structuring your time and effort effectively and it feels really good ed huckaphony like a bite size like chunk of that and you know what you're producing at the end is not like a feature on some APP that already exists. It's you know a small prototype and it's not meant to replicate like good architecture or engineering practice. It's meant to replicate the process that someone needs to go through to build an M._v._p.. Or try a new technology for the first time or show someone that like crazy idea they've been thinking about for six months and I think that's a common point of confusion. A lot of people are like how could Hans don't produce anything real nothing comes out of them and I would actually argue that that <hes> is exactly the point it reduces the risk associated with building something if you don't have to worry as much about the value of the output and allows house people to be more creative because they can take more creative liberties right they can build something that doesn't have to show immediate value and I think that's super valuable from a learning also just like a creative satisfaction perspective.

Meet Gilbert Gottfried's sidekick Frank Santopadre

"I have Frank Santa Padre. He is the co host of Gilbert, Godfrey's, amazing colossal podcast. This happens to be my favorite podcast aside from talking tech. Of course, a great place to get a lot of laps in stories about old Hollywood. And Frank one thing that I find really fascinating about your show. Is it sounds like you're interviewing people person to person, but many times, you're not correct? Or you're talking about the long distance broke up. How do you do that? What we do is. Well, we we originally we were doing Skype interviews, you know, when you're doing a show about old Hollywood a lot of people, especially retired people where where people in their sixties seventies and eighties live in Los Angeles. And we do the show out of New York. So that necessitated long distance and actions, we started doing them but phone calls, we realized that down very good. So we moved to Skype, but then the Skype audio would let you down because you would dependent on on the bandwidth, and and all kinds of other factors. So we decided to record people on the west coast. And then record our end, obviously on the east coast. And then our engineer mixes the two so really you get a seamless result. It sounds like we're in same room. So how do you do this does the person go to a studio and then you're negative air? They go to air will studios are our parent company partner, our partner, if you're wolf has a a studio in Hollywood. So they'll go there. And there's an engineer there. To record them. Sometimes we go to someone's home. If they're not in LA, we we recorded Robert Wagner last night. And he's an Aspen. So we dispatched an engineer to him at his house. And then they send us the audio files and our engineer Frank mixes the to file until it sounds like we're all together. How do you hear them? Over Skype hookup. Okay. Yeah. There's there's a there's a a camera. So we can see them which makes the interview better obviously, cover the other drawback to phone interviews is there's no I contact or anything you can't pick up social cues. You don't know when to speak when they're speaking. So we see them on a computer screen, and and and we hear them through through the Skype connection. We just don't use that Skype connection for for Finnish audio now when you came up with this concept, you are working with one of the great tech enthusiasts of all time. Gilbert, Godfrey, correct. Oh, there's nobody more technically proficient than Gilbert. And that of course, we're both being facetious. He is very anti tech. Now did he know what you're talking about? Did was it a tough sell mean? Tell me about this. You mean when when when we propose the idea of a podcast, so well, the podcast, and then the idea that you would use Skype to interview people. I I'm pretty sure Jeff that. After two hundred fifty maybe close to four hundred now if you count the Thursday, many episodes, I'm pretty sure he still has no idea. What a podcast is. Confident in that assessment. Yeah. He you know last night we were doing sound checks for five minutes. And the engineer couldn't understand why he couldn't hear Gilbert's voice. And then we realize he never plugged headphone, Jack he doesn't even have to use his cell phone. Tell everybody about the show. How's it doing the shows doing? Well. I mean, we never expected quite honestly this kind of response when we started. It was a large. Yes. It was started really as a labor of love and goof, I mean Gilbert, and I have known each other many years we used to sit on the phone till all hours, laughing about obscure character actors and just kind of arcane stuff that don't we thought only we cared about. When when we had the idea to actually interview some of our heroes. We thought oh, this'll be fun cult thing for a couple of hundred people, and our fellow the we didn't really know it would take off and that seventy five thousand eight thousand people a week would would download it were pleasantly surprised by the reaction and two hundred and fifty shows in. We've made a little name personnel to now. People want to do the show tell everybody about you. Because obviously Gilbert Gottfried has quite a career and from Aladdin to the comedy clubs to problem child. And all the things you guys talk about on the show, but Frank a writer tell everybody about yourself. Well, I've been a comedy writer for God about twenty five years professionally, and I've written everything I wrote for the Muppets I wrote cyber couple of screenplays that were optioned I written a lot of ward shows, I write for the comedy, central gross. I wrote the TV land awards they don't do anymore. Am I ran I wrote for I sort of made my bones writing for other comics and writing for people like Bill Murray, and oh, God all kinds of people joy Behar different people like that. And. And that kind of into into a career writing off show stuff panel what they call panel, which is celebrity talk show. I worked for the Howard Stern show for a while. So I'm kind of a joke writer, you know, writer of of one liner short form comedy award shows
