Did Oak Park Church Remove 'Fasting From Whiteness' for Lent Sign?
"Charlie, I live in Oak Park, Illinois, and I heard you talk on the radio show about a church that I drive by every day on my way to work. First united of Oak Park. I'd noticed their signage a proclaiming their lenten fasting of whiteness, and I was ecstatic to hear you mentioned on air. I noticed this morning, though, the sign was gone. Do you have any idea what happened? Did your show do that? If so well done. So yes, we broke the story at turning point USA. Somebody sent this to us anonymously. And it's the first united church of Oak Park, a lot of good folks in Oak Park, but my goodness. They've lost their mind at this church. And so they put up this sign where they said we are going to be abstaining from white people performing hymns that were written by white people or music written by white musicians. That four lent they're giving up whiteness. They're fasting from whiteness. Reverend John edgerton, senior pastors had the whole practice has been about love. The love of God and neighbor is not only giving something up, but taking something on said reverend edgerton, otherwise known as a left wing community activist, posing as a reverend. Just this must be loved into existence. It is the only way white people absolutely have a place in the redemption story. White people were even at the foot of the cross, they were the Roman guards. As white people, we must love our redeemer enough to put down our spears. What? That we white people are walking around with spears. He's comparing us reverend John edgerton from first united church of Oak Park is comparing white people to those that killed Jesus. As white people, we must love our redeemer enough to put down our spears. We must love our redeemer more than we love our whiteness. Trust me. I don't love my whiteness. It's a really weird bizarre thing to say. And kneel before our redeemer, who's a dark skinned man from the poor parts of town.

On the record charts this week is come see about me as sung by these three youngsters from Detroit, Diana Ross. Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard, here they are and let's hear it for them. Now known as the supremes. The group landed their first number one hit with where did our love go in 1964. This was just the beginning of unprecedented success. Between August 1964 and May, 1967, the supremes released ten number one hit singles, with a string of songs like baby love, come see about me, stop in the name of love and back in my arms again. They became the first U.S. group to have 5 number one songs in a row. Barry, recognizing Diana's star quality, replaced Florence with Diana on lead vocals in 1967. If that wasn't enough to highlight Dan his role as the star of the group, he also changed the name to Diana Ross and the supremes. Berry expected a lot from Diana. As Motown's most successful vocal act throughout the 60s, the work was continuously rolling in. As a result, Diana began suffering from severe anxiety and anorexia.

I don't think we can continue as a society. Really living like this. I mean, they're out for blood and they're like, sharks in the water. They smell it. And now the CEO of Spotify is having to say, wow, well, wait a second, you know, we're just gonna take down these podcasts, but you see, we support free speech, et cetera, et cetera and all these musicians are running for the hills. So this is cancel culture on steroids. They're trying to go after a pretty big fish. They're going to go after this for a while. We'll see how far they get. The problem is, when you give them an inch, it's all over. So if Spotify gets rid of Joe Rogan, by the way, Joe Rogan has another offer already from our Friends over at rumble. They're like, hey, Joe, come here, we'll pay you. We'll pay you a $100 million. We'll give you a deal. Wouldn't that be

What Is Joe Rogan's Podcast Controversy Really About?
"What's the controversy over Joe Rogan's podcast really all about? Now, Joe Rogan is, well, he's not a conservative. He is a fellow who doesn't go with the establishment. He's a fellow who asks questions. He's a fellow who likes to learn, he puts guys on his podcast, he doesn't mind putting guys from widely across the political spectrum. It's not clear what Joe Rogan's own politics are at one point I think he said he voted for why I wanted to vote for Bernie Sanders. I know that he wasn't an enthusiast of Biden. In fact, he memorably described Biden as going with Biden as kind of going on a hike with a guy with a very dim lightbulb that was about to go out. Flashlight. And this is the intolerable Ness if I can coin a word of Joe Rogan is that he doesn't play from the official, while sheet music. And this is why the left is determined to get him. He also has a wide reach of big influence the number one podcast really in the country. And so they want to bring Joe Rogan to heal. And this all started with a couple of hundred medical professionals and now some of them were just med students. This wasn't really the best and the brightest of the medical community, but nevertheless, they dash off this letter to Spotify, Joe Rogan is putting out misinformation, I guess this has to do with Rogan's interview with Malone, the virologist and the epidemiologist who is a partial inventor of the mRNA technology. And this is a guy who Malone, who's not, again, on board with the CDC on COVID. And so they want to get Joe Rogan's podcast pulled off of Spotify. And then Neil Young, the musician jumped on board and goes, I'm gonna pull my music from Spotify and Spotify is like, okay, and now others have piled in Joni Mitchell, apparently Bruce Springsteen Crosby, Stills & Nash. Now, if you notice most of these guys are like 75 year old rockers, we're not talking here about the biggest stars of music today. They've been a little bit silent about all this, but this pressure from the left for these people to join in. At one point, I saw something with the effect of the obamas are now using their leverage with Spotify to pull

"Here's another dummy, joy behar. Completely lacking any kind of self awareness. Over what she is advocating. She is advocating that people bully Joe Rogan into being canceled. Here was joy behar yesterday on ABC TVs, the view. Let's say if they put their money where their mouth is, and a lot of people, I was disappointed, contrary to you. I was disappointed that more musicians and singers, et cetera, did not pull out. They're on Twitter all the time, trashing people who don't get vaccinated. And then they keep their music there. This would have been a good opportunity to show what you believe in. And I didn't say it. But I only saw two people from the 60s and 70s. Let's see some young people. Let's see Taylor. And those guys stand. Right, joy? Shut down and censure and cancel speech you disagree with.

"What has the reaction to that so far as really positive so t two has a lot of support and they first of all the brothers. Osborne are amazing. And i love him so my and i was so happy to see that story and the support. Tj gets because like he is becoming. The first is a huge deal but also having your other artists rally around. You is an even bigger deals. Like seeing people like mayor. And morris seen people like casey most graves tweeting. There's like really excited about this moment tells you country's changing but it's changing slowly and it continues to change slowly. That's the frustration. I think there's a misconception that countries this very backward looking institution with nobody in there being frustrated by this but like the fact even having these conversations even indication that like barrel a lot of people pushing for change getting sort of stonewalled over and over again. Have you heard of any radio. Stations like polling his music or anything. 'cause i know in the past reduced. They should have pulled songs with gay lyrics it. I haven't seen that yet. That's positive it is but also like it's not like brothers osborne new. You know what i mean like. They're like this massive bestselling artists so like there is truly the safety their country that amazing blog. But it's sort of been keeping track of people in country and how they're treated like what they do is document are an evolution of how country views artists. but also like we're not the inflection point. It'd be like okay now. We're good at this. And so i would check them up because they're really good sort of breaking down. I'm so glad you said that we're just really giving me life today. Because i keep mentioning that. I grew up in national. I grew up in the shadow of this industry. In what i know. Most about it is that you know they say in public is very different than how they act in private in teaching foreign has said in his interviews with time magazine that his friends and colleagues did know he was gave for many years so people in the country music did know this just like they probably knew that mr wallin was racist. But you're planning to publicly the re positioning themselves. But why is this public positioning. Maybe not the most authentic thing for country music. Because i just keep thinking about las acts just a few years ago did win but country did not really embraced the black gay boy. He had doing pop charts in our mba. And everything else. So what what's going on specifically said you know this is not country music and of course he pushed back against that. But we're seeing. I think he's changing the garden country. But it's just sort of so slowly happening but it's kind of frustrating to watch for anyone. I don't know younger than fifty to like. There's this element of watching these things. Change watching the conversation change but also when you get to the highest levels of these institutions. They're not interested in the fallout. Embrace of these really think remained crazy to me. That artists like rain. Roberts while you have artists like britney spencer while you have artists like you'll like willie jones were doing so well that they wouldn't dislike these. These are all black artists. Who are doing amazing. I mean you wouldn't have country just from a financial and commercial perspective shift. Embrace them in a really big way because like there is money to be made. They're just like if you're not going to do it because it's the right thing to do it because you can make money out of it my god but there sort of like that unwillingness go full tilt frustrated to watch but there are these ways that we can see. That is changing. You could see someone like jimmy. Allen has gone a lot of support for being a young black artists in the industry. And like it's really great to see it but it's kind of fits within the model of you can have one one is a treat because he's kind of been the big one for the past couple of years came brown too so we've talked about a lot of change at what changing the industry. But i wanna like go back to older country music scandals. I think about what happened to the dixie. Chicks do you think we've come a long way since then we haven't we. Haven't i mean like the fact that we keep doing this. This is sort of the rest of the peace for buzzfeed was about. Is that like there are people who get second. Chances of there are people who don't and the people get second chances. The most often in country tend to be the white men repeatedly morgan walls of the world. They're gonna get a second chance and the chicks were blackballed for ten years for like a decade. There is kind of like sidelines than they can. They weren't allowed to get a second chance. That is a blonde frustrating history of this industry looking at people who say things that are uncomfortable to. I guess white men and saying no. This doesn't belong in the discourse right now. So i'd like to say that his changing but he's not changing a speed this fast enough for us to detect like instead of going to take a generational change and you know. I don't know if you're familiar with a stat. But it's pretty well known. I guess national that country music is the only john wrote that still sell. Cd's the country music lovers by sees at high rates which is more money for the industry itself. The reason for that is because it's an older audience do you think that's also a factor here for the young black artists that may be need digital sales or digital platforms to kind of grow. Is that kind of why the industry is being like a girl. Maybe not today c. d.'s. Yet i mean that's like when you have choices in terms of where to allocate your resources your invest in the people who can move those cds right who can move physical copies at walmart as opposed to have massive digital sales have said that you know like someone like morgan wall and he broke streaming records. I think he doubled. Luke combs previous record like one hundred two million in the first week and more than two hundred forty million is. That's pretty incredible and we should say the lake streaming is a young young sort of industry. Like records are being set all the time and the reasons being set all the time is because like more and more people are turning toward streaming. So that's teaching.

I mean there of course blogs that say hey you know you should ask about their experience about the stack or what. Their approaches and everything.

It just you know is not feasible so so yeah i mean one of the things that just and that was already like that for me and marketing but it's also like that now in more the takes face like i just really liked to build human connections with the people that i've talked to and just really make them feel that they are making the right decision. Whatever it might be. That's the best way to keep happy customers or people that are not customers. But that you know like i mean you never you always me twice Also i think one of the things that yeah like whatever industry you're working in.

If we're the right partner the right fit. Also you know for what they're building Really being very transparent during that You know the entire process at the those are the moments when you feel you know this does really make sense and awe like on and all that structure that we kind of put in place is what makes a difference like typically when companies like when when when potential clients comparis- they don't compares to other latin american countries.

It's hard not to say music. Because i also have a band and i just Yeah and dream pop kind of band like end of beach house cigarettes after six kind of that That type and we are actually in the middle of recording our city so we also use the pandemic for that. So it's kind of hard to find free time after december labs and after my band so you're recording a cd. Yes we are all. that's exciting. When are you going to release it so at thanks to colbert.

You know like these kind of companies that just have become so much more relevant to help people stay sane race and trade deal with everything Bracelet the struggle. Although i can definitely recommend shoot lots of people that we're all going to be my kids. I said my kids to school back full-time okay. And did you could either choose remote or back home.

You know one of work a part of your time from home that that you know that that in general there saddam or flexibility there. But i but i would hope that it won't just be fully remote all the time and i think that just kind of takes away a little bit of that human connection and And yon just teamwork. I have to say that. I work a lot from home. Just because it's you know very comfortable. I have dogs here You know we have lunch with my boyfriend which we typically wouldn't have together so all of these things are kind of nice and also you know. I'm really happy with Yeah like singer. Saw exactly exactly so so so. That's actually you know really comfortable. But i do have to say that when i go to the office. I love just seeing the guys. They're saying. hey. I don't have like. I don't feel i need that every day but But yeah. I think it's still working in a team and besides zoom and slack and everything and you know we're feel so close and like still i mean you have to. You have to find those instances of talking. I remember when the when the pandemic started with just a couple of team members You know we set up kind of like weekly sinks like you know for like just fifteen minutes tonight just say hi and cr. Everyone was doing and And that was really important in the beginning because we didn't have a custom of doing that. You know when we were working from home because there was just not happening a lot now that really help towards kind of a transition of today you know sometimes with some of you know like some of my coworkers who might be working for some time kind of in parallel remotely but you know still like to took to so kind of trees kind of conversations which if you just call each other for that specific call then it's then then then it's that then it's those fifteen minutes thirty minutes of something very specific So yeah. I think i've kind of mixed feelings about it. I think people need the human interaction. I think our brains are not functioning properly. Because we don't. I think human interaction helps the brain. Keep going We're going to be a society of dementia because we don't have that stimulation with each other and that's very hard on on people The other the other thing the other things sorry. I don't want to interrupt. But i think the other thing is the actual workplace. I think that many people You know kind of an okay equipped workplace as far as you know just like working randomly from home or so but i think still People will really need support as far as you know anything from You know proper You know seat proper table having the right support like that. That's something that we were very worried about. In the beginning for our team and where really i think december labs also took a great step forward of supporting everyone like and just basically flipping their their their their remote workplaces..

We offer that hybrid solution sometimes People come in have of the week or just a couple days. Some people are fulltime at the office. Mar fulltime remote But yeah on the other hand We do have an office in houston texas as well and and yeah in that case actually Everything is insatiable. I didn't realize that. South america you guys didn't have so the numbers are as high as like here or no. No no no. Like i think it was just about two months ago or so. We actually had days where there was like where they were like zero new cases per day like today i still wear like you know below the hundred. It's typically you know maybe twenty to thirty per day or so. I mean that's of course this changes and as everywhere in the world there are you know still also second third waves and things like got And now we're approaching summer and sheba will just go out more and i think that might change the scenario a little bit But yeah i mean compared really and again you know being german of course i. I'm very close to my family. Lives there and are now under mandatory lockdown. My sister lives in switzerland. Same thing if they are so So yeah. I just have to say that. I think we're hearing dettori lockdown ha nothing as other than like unsual. Yes yes so and really. It's it's funny because on the one hand i mean. Uruguay is kind of far away. But then it's eastern time zone so that actually makes it so easy for us to work with. Us clients From here and then of course again also From our houston office.

It's really interesting because you know how you have those traditional economic models say you know. Hey you know.
