"Ladies and gentlemen, looking for something new and original, something unique and without equal. Look no further. Here comes the one and only Eric Metaxas. Folks, welcome to our two. Good news. We have John Smirack on the program. John, in our one, you mentioned someone named LaFonza, who is a character, I believe, from good times, or it was like Walona's cousin was LaFonza, the pro lesbian, -abortion activist. Am I getting that right? Well, all I can say is LaFonza jumps the shark. Well, thank you. A lot of people aren't getting that joke. Fonzie jumps the shark. Sorry, if you're not getting that, you're not worthy to get that. No, it's an episode. It's an episode of Happy Days where Fonzie jumps the shark. He literally water skis over a shark and everybody thinks that that is as the time when Happy Days was clearly over and needed to go off the air. Well, I think the Democrats jumped the shark with LaFonza. Picking a senator who lives and has lived for 10 years in another state, just because she runs the leading pro -abortion group in America, Emily's List, and just because she checks off the demographic boxes. Let's see, she's not a white male. She's a black and a white. Oh, my gosh, this is like we've won the Irish sweepstakes. So, again, Governor Gavin Newsom of California chose her. At the same time, the state of California is talking about paying a million dollars each to every black resident for nothing in particular, because it never had slavery, it never had Jim Crow laws, it never had voter suppression, and yet it's offering reparations to black citizens. So, my theory is it did its best to abort all the children in the state, but especially the black children. It failed, and it's offering reparations. So, in my piece at Stream .org, I talk about the fact that the Democratic Party as a whole is the party that's against human beings. It thinks the Democratic Party and the elites it controls, they think human life is the bad thing. We are an evolutionary byway, a biological mistake. Life is nasty, brutish, and short. Human birth is not a good thing. You shouldn't have children because it damages the climate. Remember when environmentalists used to talk about clean water and clean air and leaving a better planet for your grandchildren? They don't say that anymore, Eric, because they don't want you to have grandchildren. They don't want you to have children. They think every little foot that you normally would maybe make a bronze cast out, that is a carbon footprint that is killing a polar bear, that is snuffing out a snail dart. The Democrats have adopted an anti -human, anti -life platform. They are doing everything they can to stop the human species from reproducing. They want abortion up through birth. They want to castrate and sterilize thousands of confused children in school because of this diabolical, demonic, transgender lie. They want to teach them perverse sexual behavior in early school in like eighth and ninth grade. They want pornographic books in the library. If you complain about it, they want the FBI to investigate you as a domestic terrorist. They want to make energy unaffordable, housing unaffordable. They want to create chaos by bringing endless numbers of pseudo refugees into the country so there's no public order, so nobody wants to settle down and have a family in this Mad Max hellscape that they are creating. The Democrats are doing everything they can to render the human species extinct.

"Sorry, this will be the final thought. So, hi, Charlie. Thank you for coming over here tonight. You mentioned within your speech that, especially here in the Bay Area, we've kind of in a sense defined the track that the country is going through. That is true. Yeah. So I've noticed an increasing amount of you could call it resistance or opposition to what's currently happening around the world, socially, especially. And I wanted to ask your thoughts regarding this. Where do you think that the opposition and the increasing opposition we're seeing here in California will be reflected across the country eventually? So you're starting to see it here in the Bay Area. I mean, I see it in this room. I mean, and by the way, I want to just speak to you guys. We just talked about not giving up. You cannot despair. You have to fight. I know that it's hard. I know it's overwhelming. But there are so many decent people in this Bay Area, especially in the Vietnamese community and the Chinese American community and the Korean American community, people that have traditional American values that are not going to put up with this. I'm telling you. And California is worth it. This is the gem of America. You have the most beautiful state in the country. And I've visited all 50 states five times over. You've been given a gift from the Lord. And every time I land, Mikey and my team will tell you, I say the same thing. I say, what a crying shame what these maggots have done to this heaven on earth. And I say it every time. And I know you guys know what I mean. When you go for your morning walk and you say, is there a more beautiful place than California? It's like, it's unbelievable, right? It's like, then you go to, I mean, I love Ohio, but it's no California, right? It's like cloudy nine months out of the year. And it creates a real hard, I grew up in Chicago. I did not know there was a place where you could see the sun in the month of February. I didn't know it existed. I didn't know it was a thing. Imagine June gloom and it's like 27 degrees and nothing changed. So what can you, what can we do is you have to be the vessel for change, right? You have to find issues that build consensus and you have to just continue to feed yourself with podcasting and videos and then find the fighters. Look, it's no mystery guys. They're going after every truth teller. They're going after Turning Point USA. They're coming after me. They're coming after Matt Walsh, literally. And the demand is unbelievable. They went after James O'Keefe. They go after Tucker. They go after Steve Bannon and Russell Brand. Thank you. And it's not, I'm not doing this to feel sorry for us, but you know, we're all in this together. We're all in this arena and you guys help us. And if I can help you and Turning Point can help you, then it's a beautiful mutual thing together. But you are living through the most consequential time of whether or not this entire Republic and it starts here will become a tyrannical wasteland. But what if, I'm not saying, oh, we take back the Bay Area and there's gonna be MAGA flags everywhere. But what if you make life hard for them? What if all of a sudden they have to listen to you every time they show up at a school board meeting? They have to listen to you every time they go to a constituency meeting that they have to get calls from you every time where they are, they are annoyed and they're no longer comfortable and you get in their face respectfully and peacefully and you ask the questions and you say, why did you vote on this? Why are you trying to kidnap our kids? Why are you trying to put gay pornography in the classrooms? And you don't stop. And honestly, what better place to help the rest of the country than to make them have to defend their own turf? You will free up resources in the rest of the country if you try to culturally take back San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland. And I'll close with this. And thank you for the question. I'll close with this, which is I'm a outspoken Christian. And if you are not a Christian, highly recommend it. It's pretty awesome. And it's the most important thing you could give in your life. It's the most important thing. Giving your life to the Lord. And I will say as Christians, we must understand we fight, we act not because we want a certain outcome, but instead because we believe we have a duty. And if you're not a Christian and that doesn't move you, then at least have a duty to the prior generation, have a duty to the country that was built for you. Don't be arrogant and ungrateful about it. What is this? This is a beautiful place, everybody. And we have a duty to the divine, a duty to the almighty. We fight not because we like the odds in our favor. We fight because it's the right thing to do. And I know that it is so overwhelming and that it's negative and it's dark and all that. But look around in the Bay Area in San Jose on a weeknight, there's well over seven, eight hundred people intensely engaged and trying to fight for liberty and freedom. You can call that everyone a remnant. I call that hope. And you guys are a hope of salt and light in this place of darkness. God bless you guys.

"We'll take two more if there's any disagreements. Final call. Yes, sir. Or, yeah, sorry to assume you're here. Did I assume correctly? I'm sorry. Hey, Charlie. My name is Minh. I came over here and I saw a bit into Turning Point USA. So I really agree with you on a lot of points because I'm following you on Instagram. So I saw your post talking about President Trump being charged with frauds in NYC. And so do you think that he still has a chance to run for the White House in 2024? Yes, he does. So again, everything I'm saying politically is my own personal opinions. Turning Point USA, 501c3 educational project. But I can speak openly personally on this. So when I talk about Trump running for office, let me just tell you. Yes, he can still run despite all the nonsense that's been thrown at him. And I'll just be honest, my own personal opinion, it makes me support him even more when I see every single one of these indictments thrown at him. And I say, my goodness, this guy had a comfortable billionaire lifestyle and he was hosting a television show at Mar-a-Lago and he is going through the depths of hell. He is very flawed. So am I. We all are. He also has unbelievable virtues. He has perseverance that I will teach my daughter and say, I want you when the world is against you to fight as hard as Donald Trump did. I want you to learn from that. And we hear nothing but, I hate him. He's this, he's that. You know what? It's easy to give up in life. It's very easy. It's easy to surrender. You know, what's hard is to dig deeper and deeper when they literally take everything from you, everything. They're going to try to put him in federal prison. They're taking his business empire away from him, indicting him in the state of Georgia. What have they not done? They have this, you know, other lawsuit alleging, you know, that he raped somebody so stupid, the whole thing. And I think to myself, I was like, man, is there a breaking point for this man? Is there a point where he just says, forget it? I was a great president, had a sloppy election to say the least, right? Re-election campaign. And he just says, forget it. I'm going to go golf, but he keeps going and he keeps going. And I know some people say the tweets or I don't like this or I don't like that. I kind of roll my eyes honestly at that stuff. And I'm like, you know what? When you're facing 500 years in federal prison, I hope you would love this country as much as he still does. And so, yes, he is going to run and I think he has a fair shot at winning. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Final question.

"Yeah. Final thought. Just a rebuttal. All right. Because I just do one little bit, one tiny little, one hitter a day. I'm glad it works for you. Hold on. Because I am the best version of myself right now. I actually, I am. Be careful saying that. I just need a rebuttal. I wouldn't even say I'm the best version of myself. Be very careful saying that. That's a lot of problems. You're right. You're right. I agree with you a thousand percent because I can always do better. Good. We agree. I can always do better. That's, that's the attitude, right? I can always do better, but I think we as a society can go do better. And I'm sorry, I, I, I, I thought this was going to be a different format because you said it's your chance to be famous, right? So that's why I got all gussied up, right? Great. I got all gussied up. Let me just say this as lovingly as you can. You're not making a great case not to do weed. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Thank you. No, next question. Thank you. Thank you. Yes. Since you're like talking about like the policy of giving aid to like the Ukrainians, like I just have a similar question. Like basically like kind of like, would you do it like, like basically like kind of like, would you have the same policy if like basically kind of tomorrow like China decides to invade Taiwan? Like kind of basically like in that case, like basically like what like would be like your policy and thoughts about like kind of basically giving aid to Taiwan if they kind of decides to just- It's a good question. ... crush them. It depends. And I know that's not an answer you want. Foreign policy requires prudence. Did we blow up a peace deal between China and Taiwan? If that happens, then honestly, that would make me very angry. I stand 100% with Taiwan and I think the CCP is America's greatest enemy. So I'm more sympathetic towards it. Let me just be very clear. More sympathetic. Taiwan is a sovereign nation. But also, I'll just tell you both sides of it because I don't have a good answer, but I don't have a clear answer, which is when I see people that have been cheering for every no-win war over the last 30 years, all of a sudden talk about China and Taiwan, Lindsey Graham, Nikki Haley, I get very uneasy. Like, wait a second, why am I going to trust you all of a sudden? So it needs to be about deterrence, which is why I think the best thing we could possibly do is try to reject the bloodthirst of Washington DC and try to say, you know what, why don't we talk? I know this is like a foreign concept to DC, but the react is if the Chinese Communist Party wants nothing but an invasion at any point in time. Look, I think they are modern day Nazis. I think the Chinese Communist Party are, again, the party, not the Chinese people. Let me be very clear. It is terrible what they've done and we need to stand with the Chinese people. At the same time, I do not want to see America get into a no-win war against a country that could be very, very dangerous. And honestly, war is a failure for all people. We should do everything we possibly can to avoid war. And I would only think the CCP would invade at this point if we provoked it. Don't put it past our government. Thanks. I got to get to another question. Thank you so much. Got to get to the next question. Thank you.

"And I think it's really good that we have this type of dialogue and discussion, because we're all Americans. We're all Americans here. And you know, the first person I debated from your club is staying right over there. Her name is Morgan McMichael. Morgan, stand up. Stand up. You know, stand up. And, you know, we have a really civil conversation. You know, we disagreed on a whole variety of issues. And I disagree with everything that your mala said. Everything. Come on. I am, man. I'm still progressive. You think racism is bad? Come on, man. But I'm going to ask you a question, because you seem like you can handle it in a second. But I will say just two tests. Tomorrow, when Ibram X. Kendi comes, ask yourself how many conservatives are out there making fools of themselves, saying he shouldn't be allowed to speak. Number two, when Ibram X. Kendi Henry Rogers speaks here tomorrow, does he stand here for an hour and take the hardest possible questions and invites disagreement to the front of the line? That's that's an important question, right? I'll be at the event tomorrow. You should ask him what racism is, because he's not really sure. Anyway, you know what? You've come in great spirit. Do you have anything else to say? I mean, I could ask you a question. Just one question. Who do you think won the GOP debate? Oh, Donald Trump. Even though he wasn't there? That's why he was the winner. I mean, I don't know. I think I think Rogers has had some good moments. Do you prefer Trump over DeSantis? Yes. Really? Come on. The guy won Florida over 20 points in 2022. Come on now, Charlie. Yeah. The fact that you want me to support DeSantis makes me like Trump even more. I got to be there. What? Come on, man. That's not true. That's not true. God bless you, man. Thank you so much. And thank you. Plus your vote. I'm giving you the best chance to be by Mo. Thank you. Hey, Charlie, thank you for coming here tonight. I just have a question regarding health care. So tens of millions of Americans are struggling with health care bills and medical bills. So what do you think is the free market solution to that kind of problem? Yeah, this is this is an unbelievably complicated problem. Everything we're doing is making it worse. The easiest answer I could give without getting too wonky is we have to break up the hospital lobby. That's the best answer that I can give is that the hospital cartel is doing such damage to our country. We need transparency in pricing. You walk in, you have no idea what anything costs. And it is this like shadow darkness of billing. They're like pseudo nonprofits attached with for-profits and different endowment boards. It's an unsustainable model. And you need to ask the question of what is the price of a procedure? It's not a catch-all solution. It's not a perfect solution. Trust me. But you are able, it is proven that in products where the entire society wants something, we've been able to stabilize pricing and increase the quality. Cars, smartphones, right? When you have price transparency, you empower the hundreds of millions of people to say, wait a second, two days in the hospital for this procedure is going to cost $27,000. And my deductible is this. It's like all of a sudden these questions create a market. And we don't have a market because the consumer is not currently informed. That is not a perfect answer. There's like 500 other problems. There's health insurance problems. There's Medicaid problems. There's Medicare problems. There are drug company problems, which I could probably agree with old liberals on, which we are living in a pharmaceutical controlled state of Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson that want you perpetually sick. I could find great agreement on that. But yeah, look, this is the Leviathan. It is the hardest problem in America. And the biggest issue with it is that the corporations are the ones that have cozied up with government and the everyday American people. I think there's good arguments, honestly, by some liberals on this stuff and conservatives on this. The answer is not to expand government. It's to empower the everyday American to make better choices and to stop giving favorable contracts to the four companies that have done such damage to our country, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Thank you so much. All right. I think we have only I'm sorry. Any other disagreements? I don't think we have a ton of time left. So yes. You have a disagreement? Yes. Okay, great. My name is Justin Time. And I just got to say I love being here. It's my first time doing this a long time. But I have to tell you that you're loved, you're valued, and you're worthy. Thank you. And we all appreciate you, right? We all do. We all appreciate him. And I'm sorry, I thought I must have got a golden ticket because I just got bumped to the front of the line. Okay. So I just love being here. I love Pastor Mike. I've known him for a couple of years now. That is the question. We're out of time. All right. So it's about cannabis. All right. So when is it acceptable? Because you've already said that you don't agree with it. Yeah, it should not be legalized. Yeah, it creates a dirtier society. When is it acceptable? That's the real question. I mean, maybe in hospice. Like maybe when your life... But see, what if a young man like myself... You've done weed? I can't tell. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. Yeah, I know. I look a little stylish, right? All right. But here's the question. Don't do drugs. All right. When you've got a tumor on your back and it takes the pain away, is it okay for that? I mean, look, if it works for you. But you also have to be honest that it's harming your brain. What about anxiety? No, actually it increases anxiety. By the way, read... Not for me. Hold on a second. Read the literature from Alex Berenson and Dr. Daniel Amen that shows that it increases depression, it decreases dopaminergic responses. So it's like, oh, I have anxiety. Hold on a second. Time out. Understand that half of the people that take marijuana have an adverse event with anxiety. Half. It makes it worse. Half of the people. Number two, it is a gateway drug. But number two, I don't want to get too deep into like, I have a tumor and is it bad for me? The broader question is it's bad for society. It lowers IQ, it lowers motivation, and every state that legalizes weed sees crime go up, vagrancy go up, homelessness go up. And let's just ask a more macro question, right? If you were trying to destroy society, would you be cheering for the legalization of weed and usage of weed or hoping that it doesn't get legalized? Of course you would want more young men on marijuana. The fighting age young men to be sitting at home and smoking dope instead of saying no drugs, no alcohol, I'm going to commit myself to fitness, eat well, wake up earlier, do cold showers, and really be the best version of myself. There is a beautiful future ahead of you that is more than just using the cool drug.

"Hi, Charlie. Thank you for coming to speak today. I've been a lifelong Californian, born and raised in San Jose 31 years. I've watched California change in ways I'm sure most people here that have lived have seen. Homeless people are not the same breed that they were when I was a child. When I was growing up in school, they said equality, you know, treat everyone equally. We should treat each other with racism, treat everyone equally. Growing up now, it's a complete reverse of racism. It's okay to treat white people, Asian people, which are white adjacent somehow. Yes. It's insane. And what you said was so brave, you know, intellectually honest about the society that we live in, the Bay Area, not just San Jose, but the entire Bay Area, that they propagate saying, oh, stop Asian hate. But they don't mention who's committing the hate. That's correct. Yes, it's disproportionately young black men. Our laws have changed. We've completely banned open carry, you know, firearms. That was over 10 years ago. I know. And I was surprised. And then we raised the age of purchasing a rifle from 18 to 21. I'm getting to the question. I bring all of this up. We raised the age of purchasing a firearm from 18 to 21. We raised the age of smoking from 18 to 21. We lowered the age of transitioning from 18 to whatever it is, 12 or 14 or whatever. How do we change this course in California? That is my question. This is the big question. You have to fight. You are not alone. You are outnumbered, but you are not alone. And this is still a great state. I see my pastor friend, Mike McClure here, who I just want to shout out. Does a great job. Stand up, Mike. I want to talk about Mike for a second. Stand up. He stayed open during COVID. He is a great guy. And you do it by being salt and light, and you have to not give up. One of my favorite quotes. It's not a Bible verse, which is too bad, but it's by a rabbi. It's close though. To despair is a sin. It's close. There's a verse very close to it in Deuteronomy, but it's not exactly right. To despair is to sin. If you find yourself despairing, you are sinning against God. So that's the first answer is don't despair. And that's a big one, by the way, because it's hard not to just constantly be in a state of despair. You live in a beautiful state. They're destroying it. Find decent people. Viktor Frankl said there's two types of people. There's the indecent and the decent. Find as many decent people as you can, regardless of political affiliations. And then you have to fight. You have to fight tyranny wherever it is. When they try to close down Mike McClure's church, he said no. And he was really a fighter, and he baptized hundreds of people. So you have to fight. You have to fight. God bless you, man. Thank you. Hello, Charlie Kirk. Thank you for coming onto our campus tonight. And I just want to ask you this question, a disagreeing one, and a question that I think will find common ground. All right, good. All right. So do you personally think that the Supreme Court, the United States Supreme Court, should have term limits? Well, that's a good question. No, I don't. I think that it's good that they're lifetime appointments and that they're not as contentious as Senate seats. I think that's a good thing. OK, thank you. And one last question is that do you think we can ever get to a time where both sides can respectfully disagree and agree with each other on college campuses? Because I've been here for two years, and Turning Point USA was here last October, fall semester. And I personally debate with them, despite being the vice president of the Democrats at SJSU.

"Hundreds of thousands of people have died because our government saw dollar signs. They saw dollar signs. And that is, I don't care your political views, right, left, indifferent, that is a disgrace is what that is. And so my opinion has been the entire time. Why do I never hear about peace? You have to try to broker peace. People are dying. The slaughtering is continuing. No one's going to get everything they want. Here's a thought crime. Eastern Ukraine wants to be part of Russia. No one wants to say that out loud, okay? They speak Russian. They're ethnically Russian. Again, how is it in our like interest like, oh no, it's 100 miles this way, 100 miles that way. Like that's not the most important thing facing the United States. Get them in the room, tell them to stop the killing, stop the supply of arms, tell Putin to stop the invasion, and you draw the line and you say Ukraine will never be part of NATO, but our leaders are not willing to say that because they make billions. The war industrial complex makes billions. Orwell again warned us about this. A regime perpetually at war never has to address the needs of the citizens at home. They will distract you about what's happening overseas. They did this in Vietnam. They did this in Afghanistan. No-win wars that impoverish our country. You want to know why young people are like revolting against the system or they should be, honestly? We've known nothing but a nation at war since our earliest memories. All we've known is no-win conflicts, no-win conflicts. So, you know, blessed are the peacemakers, as it says in the scriptures. And our, yeah, that's right. Credit Jesus for that one. And honestly, shame on our leaders. And Joe Biden, he's going to need the forgiveness of Jesus Christ for dispatching Boris Johnson to start a war. Thanks so much. Appreciate it. He's got to follow up. I'm sorry. No, we've got to get to the next one. I'm sorry. Got to get the next one. Hi again. This one isn't as much of a disagreement. Just a question. If you were in power, what would you were talking about homelessness? If you were in power, what policies would you pass to address that? Identical what Rudy Giuliani did in the 1990s. Compassionate but tough, which is we're going to give you help, we're going to give you services, but the streets are not your home. That we're going to find a way to do both. And he did it in a way where homelessness was rampant. You guys remember New York in the late 80s. It was not safe. It was not orderly. And New York became the gem of America. But you have to be tough. You have to be willing to have police power and do it lovingly and say, excuse me, sir, we're going to not allow you to have this tent on the side of the street. We're going to put you in a homeless shelter. We're going to give you a meal. We're going to give you mental health support, whatever it might be. But and by the way, being homeless is not a permission slip to commit crimes. Let's be very clear. And I think it deteriorates property values. And here in San Jose, I'm driving into the campus, guys. It's like this is not this is not good for morale. It's not good for the aesthetic of the city. It makes people, I think, nastier. It makes you less likely to be on the streets to talk to your fellow citizen. It's bad across the board. So exactly what Mayor Rudy Giuliani did in the 90s to clean up the streets. Thank you very much. We'll get to the next one. Thank you.

"Again, if you disagree, feel free to pop on up. But yeah, please. Hey, Charlie, thank you so much for coming to San Jose. I spent two years as a chapter vice president and I'm getting my teaching credential at California State East Bay. So wish me luck in the public education field. But besides all that, I did have a quick question on foreign policy. If we could pivot really quickly. One thing I've really appreciated about you lately is your willingness to call out the money pit that is Ukraine, the fact that we're wasting just gobs, billions of dollars in Ukraine so that we can what, like hold some terrible concrete apartment blocks in back mud? I don't know. But I'm wondering if this whole Ukraine debacle has sort of changed or molded your opinion on other aspects of, say, isolationism. Like I myself am pretty hardcore isolationist. And the two examples that I think of are like Pakistan, the fact that they don't hold their nukes well, the fact that they may or may not have harbored bin Laden, and we still give them $100 million a year. And I know it's a touchy subject because some idiots have been really rude to you about it. But we give $4.5 billion per year to Israel. And my take on that is, hey, if they want to build an Iron Dome, let them build an Iron Dome. But I don't want my tax dollars going to it. So what I'm getting at with the question is, have you become more isolationist as this Ukraine war goes on just as a flashpoint issue in Ukraine? Or do you think your view has expanded throughout the rest of the world as well? And I've seen some people into the line. If you guys disagree, you could tell Macy there. She'll help you to the front of the line. I just want to make sure everyone's aware of that. I become more of a patriot, honestly. I don't like the term isolationist. I think there's a time to go kill our enemies and crush them regardless of where they are around the world. I'm not a hawk by any like the neocon hawk. Let's start with Israel. I had Israel envy. I'll be honest. I wish we had a border like Israel does. I wish we were able to deport foreigners like Israel does like that. I'm really jealous of that, right? So as far as aid to Israel, the best argument I could give for aid to Israel is as a Christian, the ability to access my holy sites is an absolute imperative for any American citizen or a Westerner. And it is a fact that if Israel were to fall to their Arab neighbors, we would not be able to access the archaeological sites. Capernaum, Bethlehem. Well, Bethlehem is already captured. It's a great example, actually, of what happens when the Arab countries do that. Or, you know, Hebron. I will fully acknowledge, I'm not like a defender of the Israeli government. They have lots of things to explain themselves for. But honestly, I appreciate their gusto when they say, you know what? We're going to be a country with a strong national identity. And like literally there was like 300 people that were rioting in the streets from Atria. And they're like, yep, you're all gone. It's like, wow. If we do that, we're called racist. Why does Israel get to do that? It's kind of something to think about, right? But no, I do think there's a place for a partnership with Israel. Whether or not we could look at the number and all that, I'm not getting in the weeds of that. Pakistan, I haven't thought that deeply about it, to be perfectly honest. The Ukraine thing, let me just say this. I just think it's so morally objectionable and outrageous that while we have 10,000 people illegally entering the United States on a daily basis, I have to be lectured by our leaders that the most important thing is sending hundreds of billions of dollars to Ukraine. Like that's the most important thing. How about you secure our border and you send $100 billion to our border to seal it from the invasion that's happening? Like this is not hard stuff at all. And it's very clear that talking about Ukraine is a substitute for caring about America. And that drives me nuts is that there are young people in this audience that are going through serious financial difficulty, that have trouble buying groceries, trouble buying gasoline. And our leaders are so focused on a proxy war abroad by the way that our own government wanted. Even if you're super pro Ukraine, this is a fact that you have to live with and you have to try to wrestle with. That Joe Biden dispatched Boris Johnson to obliterate a potential peace deal that would have prevented the slaughter of people. Our government did that. Our government did that. We wanted the war. That is sick. I don't care if you are Mr Zelensky and you have the Ukraine's flag over everything. You should find that so unbelievably evil that our government would dispatch Boris Johnson and blow up a potential settlement.

"Follow-up question? I'm sorry? Follow-up question? Really quick, yeah. Why shouldn't we then have a trial for Joe Biden so the public can see what he actually did and make a decision based on that? No, I mean, at this point, that's why I support impeachment is you have to fight fire with fire. We shouldn't take this laying down, right? Like, OK, they crossed the Rubicon. Now it's time to impeach Joe Biden and put actual crimes on display. 10 percent for the big guy. Hold back your income. Conference calls with your son Hunter. I'll be very honest. I don't rejoice this. This is sad. This is sad that we have to go to this place. I would much rather have an election, not a competition of who could prove the most stuff in a hearing or some sort of fake trial with Fannie Willis or Alvin Bragg or Letitia James. I hope you guys understand how insane what's happening with Letitia James is right now. This is literally the New York attorney general just saying, I'm going to take Donald Trump's business empire like this. This is the third world governments did this stuff against former presidents. We would sanction them. And so, no, I don't rejoice in it, but I do think it's necessary at this point. And we have to remember the gentleman before asking the question. I think he was a gentleman. I don't want to assume his gender, but the gentleman said he asked the question. He said, what do you respect from the left? They fight to win. It's about we as conservatives need to start to fight to win or else we're going to lose our country. Thank you so much. Thank you. Hello. First off, I just want to say it's a shame nobody's mentioned this, but I like your tie by the way. Oh, thank you. So I identify as a conservative and Roger Scruton defined conservatism as the sentiment that good things are easily destroyed, but not easily created. I've noticed that in all of your various lucrebrations and printed on every single poster in here is the word rebel. My question to you is how are people with personalities rebellious to authority satisfied at the heart of a conservative movement seeking to preserve mass social upheaval and the maintenance of our status quo? Can you just help me out? So what are you asking? You're asking how are we conservatives while being rebels? I'm asking, well, how are you satisfied as being a rebel in a conservative movement that tries to preserve the status quo? Well, I'm not part of something that tries to preserve the status quo. Like strong families? Yeah, I mean, I just praised one of our chapter leaders for getting married at a young age and having kids. And I mean, I also speak openly against pornography. We should not legalize weed. I mean, yeah, the status quo. I also think that Greg Abbott should mobilize the Texas National Guard and secure the southern border. That's hardly the status quo. So I'm not really sure what you're getting at. Well, I just think that when we identify ourselves as rebels, do we want to just give the message to the youth and the people after us that rebels had to fight for this stuff? OK, yeah, I'm not really sure what you're asking, but we are rebels. Like they control everything. I don't want to lie. I mean, they control Hollywood, Silicon Valley, academia, the entire governmental apparatus. It is a rebellious act. As Orwell said in one of his beautiful essays, he said, in the land of tyranny, speaking the truth is a revolutionary act. And so us as truth tellers in a tyrannical country is literally a revolutionary act. So I think we're just arguing over semantics. But I agree with everything you've said. What are you trying to conserve? Families, faith. Like I want church attendance to go up like immediately. I'm trying to preserve the country that we had from becoming a third world hellhole from having our borders wide open like I could I could continue. So thanks for the question. Appreciate it. Thank you.

"Hi, I was wondering, what do you think about the viewpoint that both Trump and Biden, if they committed crimes, should be investigated and prosecuted? What crimes did Trump commit? I'm curious. That's why I think they should be investigated and seen in a trial in court. We don't know for sure whether he committed crimes. But there is some good evidence to indicate that it might be possible. And why shouldn't we have a trial to see what the result is? OK, so that's actually a really good-hearted question. So for all of our adult life, actually, since the founding of America, when you are a former president and you are running for a political office, unless you literally ran somebody over with your car maliciously, we're going to be very careful using the instruments of the Department of Justice, because it does two things. It looks nakedly political. It takes the person out of the playing fields that you can vote for that person. And the third thing is it makes us all distrust the justice system. And so what would make actually more sense is that we should allow the voters decide whether or not they want Trump to be president or Biden to be president, not Jack Smith's own personal decision of who he wants to become president of the United States. And so that's a far more logical and rational way. You show me the man, I'll show you the crime, right? We have a legal code that is so voluminous. As James Madison said, more laws, the less justice. Cicero said something very similar. And again, we're getting to a place where we're going to investigate every candidate for every office. And then the enforcement of that will be whoever controls the Department of Justice. And let me tell you right now, at the FBI building, they're not all wearing MAGA hats, right? That is tilted in one direction and one side. I would much prefer to say, you know what? Detente, Biden, Trump, like, let's see what the voters actually want. Instead, Donald Trump is under active indictments facing 500 years in federal prison. This has never happened before. And they say, oh, it's because Trump is a criminal. Like, oh, really, Trump is a criminal. Well, Hillary smashed devices and Joe Biden sold our country out to China. I have to be lectured about Donald Trump giving a speech, you know, on the Capitol Hill or mishandling documents like, yeah, how do you sit this one out, buddy? All right. But the more important issue is the question of why don't we allow the people actually decide who gets to be president, not unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. that are actively interfering with our constitutional right to pick who gets to run our country. Thank you so much. Thank you.

"Yeah, I think so. Like from my understanding of sex, like reproductive biologists don't necessarily use chromosomes. They use like what gametes you produce, like what sex sells. So like sperm or ovae. But I don't know that. Let me try to find some common ground here. So when the Biden government comes out and they say that men can take drugs to lactate and chest feed, do you think we've probably gone too far? I haven't seen Biden say that. That's okay. He didn't. His government did. But I'm just trying to find some common ground because like when the government says that it's how about this? When the government calls women that are pregnant birthing people, do you think we're probably going too far? I think I'd have to ask you more questions about what you believe because I don't know. It's pretty simple and transparent. I believe what people have believed for 5,000 years that there's man and woman and that you can't pretend to be something that you're not. I also believe what 99% of Americans believe. So it's really not that complex. But the fact you can't immediately answer gets right to the point of this, which is that we have this radical ideology that has infected every major part of American society. And I don't think we should be focusing on fringe issues or fringe cases when it's literally staring us in the face. And it's a social contagion that is resulting in tens of thousands of people chopping off their genitalia to create irreversible damage for the rest of their life. Thank you so much. Appreciate it.

"Hi, Charlie. Earlier you were talking about sex and gender. There only being sex, gender not existing. I was wondering how you define male and female and what criteria you use to define them. XX and XY chromosomes. So with intersex people then who might be born with XX chromosomes, but they have... An exception to the rule, right? One in every 25,000 cases, yeah. But that doesn't make the rule any less true. It's like saying, if you see someone with an amputated leg, you say, oh, wow, that's not normal, but you still have something normal to compare that to. It doesn't make that the rule. Yeah, I guess. So my question is more like if somebody then does have like XX chromosomes, but they're born with like male anatomy or yeah, male anatomy. So they're intersex. Yeah. So would that person be male to you or female? So if they're XX chromosomes with male anatomy? I'm not even, how common is that? It depends on like the specific, I think that one's Turner syndrome. So that can be like in one in 500 boys to like one in 2,500 boys. How do you think they should identify? I personally, in those cases, you know, like you say that there's only sex, but I personally think that those people should be able to identify how they want to identify because it's, you know, like, would you say that that's like an unclear circumstance or. Well, I think that their chromosomes are rather clear, right? Yeah. And they have displaced genitalia. Well, I don't just, okay. But so you would want them then to present as female, even though. It's not a matter of what I want them to present. It's what they are. So they should, did you say one in 500 cases? Yeah. That's insanely made up. I got to be honest. Like that, you said 500,000 or 500? 500. No way. That's, yeah. Yeah. It's what? Yeah, so one in 3,000 is more accurate. Okay. All right. We can use one in 3,000. So. There's a factor of six, but yeah. So then do you think that those people who are, you know, they have male anatomy, they should wear dresses, present. What is their hormonal makeup? I'm curious. Those people would have like male, like testosterone. So they would have more testosterone than estrogen. Yeah. In those cases. I'd have to think about that actually. Yeah. I'd have to think about that. But the fringe case should not dictate the rule. That's the point. Is that fringe cases in any scenario, whether it be rape, incest, and abortion, or intersex with trans issues is not the heat or the heart of the debate at all. In fact, if I understand correctly, the study on intersex, again, it's somewhat of a distraction of the fringe cases that there can be at the young age, like surgery that actually ends up helping based on the hormonal makeup. Is that not right? I mean, I think like it's better when they're adults to have certain procedures like that done. I think it can lead to issues when it's done when they're younger. But I do think that there are. So then if you think that, do you think anatomy has anything to do then with determining biological sex? When you said determining biological sex, do you mean like in how we define sex or like? Again, I'm just curious. Again, I just want to reiterate. We don't have 15% of high school girls in America that are quote unquote non-binary because of intersex issues. We have 15% of high school girls saying they're non-binary because it's a social contagion that is infecting people that are perfectly normal and healthy with XX and XY perfectly functioning genitalia systems. That's the real issue. And so while I acknowledge this is incredibly murky and I need to think about it, this is a rare disease to muddy the issue up that biological reality needs to continue exist regardless of somebody's own personal imagination.

"So are you suggesting that like a transgender woman goes about her day pretending to be a woman, but then when she gets home, she starts acting like a man? No, delusional in every part of life. I understand that. But that doesn't mean they're not delusional. I mean, there's a series of mental conditions where you could pretend to be a wolf. Can you be trans species too? Does your own mental condition dictate external reality? Yes or no? Not necessarily. Okay, then why do you believe that a biological man can become something that he is not because he thinks it? Because gender is not interchangeable with sex. Yeah, right. So there are zero genders. There are only two sexes. Gender is a made up term that started in the academy in the 1960s. Talking about sex, which is the only thing that actually can be proven and that matters, XXXY, I will ask the question again, why is it that a man can suddenly become a dress and can be treated exactly the same as a woman that is biologically, not as biologically different, but somebody has a different brain, a different hormonal system, menstruate, have children. I'll be very honest with you. It is so unbelievably insulting to women to have men have to lecture that all it takes is some weird dude with testosterone can put makeup on, wear a thong and a dress, and he suddenly becomes a woman. Here's that the essence of the issue is that no matter how much surgery you do, no matter how many drugs you take, you don't stop being the thing that you were born. You don't get to determine your reality by a stroke of the will. I don't deny for a second that the trans person thinks that they are. Certain people think that they're younger than they are. Some people think they're taller than they are. Some people think they're richer than they are. Some people think they're innocent when they're not, like Bob Menendez. There's plenty of delusional people in this world. It's up for society to say no to the delusional and yes to reality. It is for us to not allow us to be reigned under the tyranny of somebody's imagination. I appreciate you being here tonight. Thank you so much. Thank you. All right, next question. And give it up for him. That's not easy to do at a conservative event. I appreciate that. Thank you. Yeah, what's up, Charlie? I actually got three questions. First one is, can you say at least one positive thing about liberals? Liberals are leftists. That's the big difference. Traditional liberals believe in free speech. They're just weak and they allow the tyranny of leftists. I will say this. I wish the right fought as hard as the left does. I will say that. I will say that. I wish conservatives fought as hard as the Marxists do. I have respect for how hard they fight. Second thing is, do you ever think it's possible to have an independent president ever? Good question. Probably not in the short term. Yeah, probably not anytime soon. We live in a two party state largely, but yeah. Cool. And then final question is, will you ever consider running president? No, I'm having way too much fun doing this and no. And there's far more qualified people than a kid who didn't go to college and host three hours of radio. But I'm about to be 30, which comes with its own fun challenges and stuff. But I hope we have a country by the time I'm 35, but I'm not running for anything. I'm here running Turning Point USA to save the country today. So thank you. Thank you. All right, thank you. First of all, I want to commend you for coming to such a left wing campus, considering your views. So thank you for coming. But I heard you mention safe injection sites and drug overdose is such a big issue today. And there's this meta analysis of 75 studies that shows that it reduces overdoses, increases access to health services, and is not associated with increased crime or increased drug use. So what reasons do you have for being against it? Do you think that San Francisco is a clean city? They don't have clean injection sites, I don't think. But no, I guess not. I believe they do have injection sites. Oh, do they? Yeah. So do you think San Francisco is a clean city? No, I do not. OK, so why do you think that is? I'm not sure. I guess just a lot of crime and homelessness and whatnot. Sure. So we have 96,700 overdoses in America right now. Off the top of my head, 72% of opioid, like 72% of all deaths for young men are opioid related. Having quote unquote safe injection sites is nothing more than subsidizing an addiction to get somebody closer to the inevitable death. But in this meta analysis from Vancouver and Australia, it shows that it lowers. I am positive that study says that. Post COVID, I think any study from the major health industries that contradict what I am seeing is steaming hot garbage. But here's my evidence. If you walk the streets of San Francisco, you will see littering of needles, feces. You will see homeless people that are completely addicted. And let me talk more morally here. OK, if you have somebody who is addicted, is it better to further their addiction or get them help so that they can break free of that addiction? That's a moral question, not a scientific one. You could give people help while creating safer conditions for those who are still doing it and haven't gotten help. So that's tapering. That's a separate issue. That is not what safe injection sites are. Tapering is perfectly fine. Literally, if they stop using a form of opioid, they could die. Safe injection sites is the continuation of the addiction subsidized by the taxpayer because we don't have the courage to say you are suffering under a self-inflicted addiction. We're going to get you help, but you first must take responsibility for your own actions. The problem with the premise of safe injection sites is society itself is saying you're really a victim, and we're going to give you the needles and give you the tools. And you could walk into San Francisco at any one of their health sites, and they will give you a kit, literally a kit of syringes and needles and literally an ability to put a rubber, a large rubber band, a tourniquet, thank you, around your arm to be able to find the veins that you can inject. Unsupervised, might I add you, unsupervised, that's not a matter of tapering or getting people off of it. A decent or a sane society would say, you know what? There's a lot of suffering here. Let's try to get you off of these things, not make it easier for you to continue to do drugs, which only continues the cycle of despair and death. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you.

"Well, my counter to that is that we shouldn't really be seeing the world in black and white. Um, and a woman is, it's more than what meets the eye for a definition. No, it's not. No, we should see the world through male and female. Yeah. Well, why? Because I live in reality, not in Narnia or some sort of weird created academic abstract space that doesn't exist. So why shouldn't a person be socially welcome to identify with gender outside of the binary? Anyone can pretend to be something they're not, but that doesn't make them the thing that they're not. Can I be black? No. Oh, but why can't I socially become black? Black face, right? I can pretend, wear camouflage, masquerade as something that I'm not, right? How's that different than a trans person? Race and gender are two completely separate things. They have nothing to do with each other, and the existence of being transgender does not imply the existence of being transracial. So you can, you can pretend to say that you have ovaries when you don't, but you can't put makeup on to pretend to be a black person. What transgender women are claiming to have ovaries? There's lots of men that pretend to have ovaries. In fact, the CDC guidance says right now that men can chestfeed. Do you think men can chestfeed? That's not the sole criterion for being. So let me ask you a question. What is a woman? A woman is someone who identifies as one. Answer the question without saying the word woman. You can't say the word woman. That's, that's called circular reasoning. It's like saying a tree is something that looks like a tree. So I ask again, what is a woman? A woman is a person who lives a lifestyle aligned with feminine characteristics, not necessarily your chromosomes or your genitals. So, so someone who just wears a dress. So what you are doing is you are reducing womanhood to a costume.

"That's a thought crime. You have 6% of the American population doing 60% of the murdering. And yet white people are the problem? No, it's black privilege. And I'm not afraid to talk about it. Thank you. Appreciate it. Do you want to follow up? Sorry, you want to follow up? Yeah. I have a short follow up. So thank you for your response. And that was great insight. And it sounds like you're personally affected to an extent through the effects that you talked about, through the black communities. And since we are affected, and you as well, do you think we have some sort of responsibility to sort of fix the problems on, instead of just giving our opinion, actually doing to an amount of what we can do? If so, what would that look like? Yeah, it's a great question. So here's what's amazing, is despite the fact that Asians have harder job getting into college, harder job getting high, Asians are like the wealthiest group in America by far, despite all the things that are thrown. And you might ask the question, why? Well, it's because Asian Americans stay loyally married far more than any other ethnic group. They prioritize education. And I don't want to overly generalize, but Asian moms don't put up with their kids committing crimes. Am I right? Right? A bunch of Asians looting, that dog does not hunt in the Korean American community or the Chinese American community. So yeah, there's like strong social fabric and cultural fabric that say, it's not acceptable to engage in this sort of behavior. So no, I don't think we should ask for any special treatment. I think this, what is the goal? The goal is to do our best to try to create a society that values meritocracy and values work ethic and things you can change, not things you can't change. Thank you, man. God bless you. Thank you. Hi, Charlie. My name's Ella Bond. I'm the chapter founder and president of Butte College up in Chico. And my question for you is what advice would you give for a brand new chapter officer to grow, to fight against the crazy liberals that come and yell at us every time we table? Well, first of all, so glad you're involved with Turning Point USA. Most important thing a young person can do is start a Turning Point USA group. Honestly, it's going to strengthen your resolve. Look at it as an opportunity to grow stronger in your views, to grow deeper in your commitment to the pursuit of truth. And they're going to try to cancel you and censor you and smear you. Look at it all as pure joy, as it says in the scriptures, right? To be persecuted in the name of truth. So it's a question of attitude, right? Instead of acting like a victim when all those things happen to you, say, you know what? I'm so lucky because I'm going to learn how to better defend my positions because the world is really nasty and tough. That's one of my problems with college campuses in general, is that it creates this false reality that I can't hear different ideas. I can't possibly be challenged or whatever it might be. And to be perfectly honest with you, life is really, really nasty at times. It can come at you very fast. Turning Point USA leaders that have had to deal with that kind of hostility are far better prepared to live a happy, productive, and joyful life versus their left-wing counterparts that have been completely insulated from any criticism, never have to deal with any sort of backlash. And, you know, you call it safe space or bubble wrap or whatever it is, but there will be a time when all of a sudden you go through a difficult moment in your life. And I could say this from someone who's, you know, had a fair amount of those over the last 11 years. It doesn't get easier, but you do manage it better when you've been through prior crises. And I really feel for the 21-year-old social justice warrior that thinks the biggest threat to society is a conservative coming on campus talking about these ideas, because they're not going to make it when the mortgage comes due and their credit card company calls to collect and they're having a bad day at work. Like, how are they going to deal with actual problems? But you're going to be prepared. God bless you. Thanks so much.

"Blacks can get into college with lower test scores. They get more acting contracts. They're literally in every other television commercial, right? They're allowed to, literally if a white person says a certain word, you could be completely terminated from public life, right? And so we spent trillions of dollars post great society, post the Civil Rights Act paired with the great society. Did any of that help? No, actually blacks got poorer on average. And so before the great society, 75% of blacks growing up in America had a father and a mother in the home. Now that number is anywhere between 20 to 25%. So America got significantly less racist. We spent trillions of dollars in our urban corridor. We implemented affirmative action in our government hiring practices, in our corporate hiring practices, in our college admissions. And yet blacks on average are poorer than they were in proportion to the 1960s. What changed? And the answer is that we are not confident, we're not honestly courageous enough to empower black voices to say, hey, you have to fix the problem in your own communities. It's not about white guilt or white pandering. It's about how about you stay with the woman you impregnate? How about you stop embracing gangster rap culture? How about you stop listening to music that glorifies the worst part of society? And people are afraid to say this. And Thomas Sowell wrote an entire book about it. And the affirmative action creates race resentment is what ends up happening. And while I acknowledge that, yes, of course, there were laws that were unjust in the past, we've already lived under the biggest reparations program in the history of modern society. And it's been an abysmal failure. You want to know what true liberation would look like? Black America taking responsibility for their actions and doing the three to four things that are necessary to succeed in America. Getting married before you have kids, graduating from high school, get a job, any job and not committing crimes. This is what drives me nuts about the looting stuff is that people say, well, it's just a matter of survival. How about you stop acting like a criminal? How about you stop stealing stuff and we justify it? And the more that we do that, the more we are building a baseline of an acceptance. And here's the thing, just so we're clear, blacks make up about 12% of the American population, more specifically black men, 6% of the American population. They're responsible for 60% of the murders.

"Hello, I'm a conservative Muslim American. And my question is, why do you think there has been less cooperation or no corruption at all between conservative right-wing America and Muslim, the community at large, when ideally we are the same, we have the same values of family values and everything we face. Yeah, that's a great question. So first of all, welcome. I'm glad you're here. So a lot of it has to do with a lot of let's just say post-9-11, post-war on terror, understandable tension there that I don't think has ever been sorted out. I do think there's a place because there's a lot that we agree, right? I had this conversation with Patrick Bet-David. Also, I am very clear. I have some, let's just say, massive theological differences between Muslims. But I would much rather work with Muslims to try and stop the chemical castration of children than have to live under the tyranny of the trans mafia that is going after children and medically kidnapping them any day. But I feel it's also important that I'm not, we can have a theological discussion otherwise. That's not that helpful. But some of it is, and you have to understand where conservatives are coming from though. There are some Muslims, not necessarily you or even the group that you come from, that do talk about not a free society, implementing Sharia, having a more theocratic form of government, right? That's a thing that needs to be sorted out, especially among some of the higher levels in Muslim society. What I see that's promising, right, is when Muslims are actually showing up more at school board meetings than rank-and-file Christians to fight for the right things politically. For that, I say, honestly, let the ethical monotheists unite against this godless secular Marxist agenda, and then we can have our spirited theological debate. Thank you for being here. Thank you. Hi, my name is Ryan. Thank you so much for your speech earlier. And my question has to do with affirmative action, and I mentioned several times earlier. The history of the United States, as we all know, civil war ended in 1865, and a lot of people think that slavery ended back then, but there was another form that was called indentured servitude that lasted until around the early 1900s. And so this form continued, and then we got the Civil Rights Movement in 1965. And so my question is, given the history, there are injustices done on people of color, and do you think that they deserve some sort of reconciliation? And if so, if not, with affirmative action, what form? And if affirmative action is the answer, which according to your answer earlier, not exactly what you agree with, but for what length, right? How long should it last? That's my question. No, like no reconciliation, no reparations. We've already overly prioritized in society. I'll prove it to you. There is institutional black privilege in society today, and no one wants to say it out loud.
"jim crow" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Wow, great to be here. I made it through that mess outside. Oh my goodness. It's so funny. You know, I get sent these videos beforehand. These people say, fascism has got to go. I said, hold on a second. Who are the fascists? The people that are having a free speech event where if you disagree, you can come to the front of the line and have uninterrupted chance to talk, or the lunatics playing rock music, screaming into the sky with barely legible signs saying, fascism is something. Do you know what fascism is? No, of course they don't. And they've spelled it wrong. Of course they did. Probably affirmative action, honestly, why they're here. We'll talk about that in a second. And they can't even spell. And it really is something, though, because honestly, I look at these videos and I'm not even saying this is a joke. The lack of purpose and meaning in your life that you have to go take to the street and like scream into the sky. Like, I'm fighting fascism. I'm doing my part. Like, why don't you organize your life a little bit? I don't know. Like, get a girlfriend. Like, get a job, any job. Get married, have kids. Like, there's something much more important in life than just being constantly angry at the world where you're trying to shut down the singular conservative event that's happening at San Jose State University. What it shows is that these people are intellectual midgets. And they are afraid. Are you allowed to say midget anymore? I don't care. I don't follow these rules. Intellectual little person, right, I think is the new term. I honestly don't care. With these people that are afraid to have a conversation, maybe there's some people tonight that do, this is not good for the country. It's not good at all. Because they think they know what they're fighting. Because they've been told that there's a fascist coming on campus. But in reality, we love America. We love the Constitution. We have really nuanced beliefs on certain things. We disagree on a lot of stuff, even amongst people in Turning Point USA. And we believe that we become a meaner country when we don't listen to the other side and allow a short window of time for people to be able to speak. And you think about it, you know, at San Jose State University, I want to thank, first of all, the police for all the help here. They've been wonderful. They've been really great. They've been really great. And thank you to the administration. It's been a battle, but we're here. So thank you, guys. I always thank the administration as long as the event happens. And so thank you. Appreciate it. The issue is this, though. When you do not have an opportunity to even hear the other side, then you think you know why you hate them, when in reality, you have this kind of built-in prejudice or stereotype. So you could go through like four years of San Jose State University. You'll probably get an overwhelming dose of Marxist postmodernism, Foucault, Derrida, Marcuse, one-dimensional man, you know, Rousseau, all that trash. And for, I don't know, 90 minutes, here we are. We want to offer a different point of view. And there's like a revolt. You think about it like, wow, imagine having a worldview so fragile, so poorly constructed that a singular speaker that comes on campus is a massive threat to the entire Marxist regime that you've built with every young person. That goes to show that they're afraid of defending their positions, that 60 minutes can undo four years of indoctrination. One event that just goes to show everything. So there's so much we can talk about here. I just learned before I came up on stage that Henry Rogers, otherwise known as Ibram X. Kendi, is giving a speech here tomorrow. Did you guys know that? Actually, in this room, you guys should go ask him questions. I wonder if Ibram X. Kendi says if you disagree, come to the front of the line. That would be interesting. If you don't know who Ibram X. Kendi is, he's one of the archbishops of the cult of anti-racism. He took $40 million from actually $10 million from Jack Dorsey. The money went missing. And he's under investigation by the Boston University now. Tends to happen with BLM organizers. All this money gets raised and no one knows what happens with the money. So I wonder if he'll actually take critical questions and disagreement. It's funny, Ibram X. Kendi, he was asked a question, which is actually part of what I want to talk about tonight. They said, hey, what is racism? And I'm paraphrasing. I want to be fair to him. But he basically said racism is the systems that perpetuate racism. It's like, okay, answer the question without the word racism in it. But you actually have to define what it is. And the reason he can't is because if he gave a definition of racism, he would realize that he's actually pushing some of the most bigoted stereotyping, prejudiced ideas on the rest of us, which segues us perfectly to your new senator here. So you have a new senator. Congratulations. LaFonza Butler. Is that a household name in California? LaFonza Butler. I honestly thought it was going to be Oprah, honestly. Honestly, I miss old Oprah. You know what I mean? Like the Oprah in the 1990s. She was so nice and sweet. And now she's just become so mean and like new agey and kind of really strange. Anyway, that's a separate issue. But LaFonza Butler. Okay, so you're Gavin Newsom, right? Not exactly my favorite person in the world. And by the way, what is all this like every time Gavin Newsom gets in front of a camera? Are you running for president? Are you sure you're not running for president? Makes you think like maybe you're not so confident in the current guy you have. If every time the governor of California gets in front of a camera, like, hey, are you running for president? Are you sure you're not running for president? Are you thinking? Are you dreaming? Are you having thought about the dream of you running for president? And so Gavin Newsom made a pledge and he said, okay, if I am given the opportunity and there's an opening, I am going to pick a black female. That was his pick. So obviously he wants to continue the tradition of affirmative action that has destroyed so many Asian and white families dreams and aspirations here in California via the education system. And he wants to continue that into the Senate seat. So he picked someone who's not even lives here. She lives in Maryland. So that's interesting. Like, yeah, let me just go on Twitter and start finding every black female lesbian that I can that is like pro-abortion. And he found LaFonza Butler, who lives in Maryland, by the way. I'm sure she'll declare California residency soon. And by the way, there are a million black women in California, but he had to go all the way to Maryland to find one that fit the criteria, I guess. So again, I don't know anything about LaFonza Butler, but I know enough to know that I'm not exactly a fan of her worldview. But I will say this, it's actually not fair to her. And she should feel a little bit weird about it. Same with Katanji Brown Jackson and Kamala Harris, another fan favorite from Kat. You guys really produce the world's best here. You know, you really, you got a real great, you got Pelosi, you got Kamala Harris, you're doing great. If I was LaFonza Butler, I'd feel a little weird because we know we're not picking you because of your credentials. We know we're not picking you because of your brilliance. We're picking you because you picked a very specific criteria in an affirmative action box. And that's in some way, she obviously just wants to see her power, so she'll take it. But how is that fair to her? It's actually not fair. So everyone's going to think, okay, you're only there because, you know, we care about the melanin content in somebody's skin. And so affirmative action, thankfully, the Supreme Court overturned affirmative action, but schools are going to find ways around it. Yes, we should applaud it. Unbelievably great decision. But the people that push for affirmative action, we'll get to the root of it in a second. It really is deteriorating and destroying society. I'll prove to you how bad it is, right? Because, you know, we're always told, oh, there's white privilege, there's white privilege. Okay, I'll believe there's white privilege the second I find a single college student that lies about being white on a college admissions paper. Like, yeah, find me anyway. If you have someone who's half black, half white, what do you think they're going to mark off? You think they're going to mark off white? Of course, they'll be penalized. They'll mark off black and then they'll get in with a lower test score. And that's exactly what affirmative action does. And it is lowering expectations to try to say we are going to value pity and sympathy instead of excellence and meritocracy. It's against everything that has made this country the greatest country in the history of the world. And California schools are finding ways around it. So here's some real examples. You guys know UC Riverside, not exactly a right-wing bastion here. Did you guys hear about the story? So a few weeks ago at UC Riverside, an ethnic studies professor, Andrea Smith, was forced into retirement after it was revealed she spent her entire career falsely claimed to be Cherokee Indian, when in reality she's 100% white. She's like forced into retirement. So again, if there's so much white privilege, why are so many white professors pretending to be quote unquote marginalized groups? The answer is because you get special tokens and you can move up faster if you pretend to not be white in the academy. Second example, an hour north of here at UC Berkeley. And anthropology professor Elizabeth Hoover publicly apologized for mistakenly claiming to have Indian ancestry, completely bogus. She lied because she knows that everyone in America knows that if she says she's white, she gets no extra points. But being an American Indian or black or Hispanic, somehow that is good. By the way, this is the same thing with Elizabeth Warren with Pocahontas. This is a fact. Affirmative action is morally corrosive. And it's not just something, again, that happens at the academy. We pick our senators through it. And by the way, the one thing I'm struck by is that there are so many students here that are Asian. I'll go through the numbers. It's so actively anti-Asian and anti-white, it should cause a revolt in the state. But we'll talk about that in a second. So in the world of affirmative action, instead of prioritizing, saying, I want to earn people's respect and admiration, it's a constant struggle of who can get the most points for something that does not matter. Let's go deeper. It actually prioritizes things you cannot change more than things you can change. America is at its best when we prioritize stuff that you can change. How much homework you study, how early you wake up, how seriously you take your classes, how disempowering it is to say that your skin color should necessarily dictate whether you get into college or not. In 2009, two researchers at Princeton calculated that to have the same chance of admission to an elite university, an Asian applicant had to score 450 points higher on the SAT than a black applicant who is otherwise the same. The SAT only has a score range of 1,200 points, 450 points. A few years ago, an AEI fellow found that black medical school applicants with below average scores were nine times more likely to be admitted than Asian applicants with the same scores. In this recent Supreme Court decision, Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, Supreme Court just decided it was revealed that to keep Asians out, Harvard would systematically rate Asian applicants as inferior personalities to everyone else. Now, we were told that it was evil, and it was evil. We had internment camps for Asians here in California during World War II. We're doing this by different means by saying, you as Asians are not allowed into universities because we want to prioritize some other marginalized skin group. Our elites are obsessed. And by the way, affirmative action is just discrimination and racism by different means. That's all that it is. And at the root of affirmative action is the attitude of what is society refusing to give me? And this is what people should think. Instead, it's what can I still give to society? That is what we should be telling young people. You are not entitled to be able to go into some university. You're not entitled to get somebody else's spot just because of the color of your skin. But at the root of all this, and at the root of some of the rancor outside, is one of the great lies that permeates our society. Because you can justify affirmative action. You can support affirmative action if you think that every outcome you don't like is because of racism. Racism is kind of like the force in Star Wars. It's invisible. It's everywhere. You can blame everyone. And by the way, I can look at articles. Obesity. That's why we have racism. Racism is why we have obesity. Bad health outcomes. Either that or climate change. It's one of the two. But can anyone actually define what racism is? Because they'll say, well, black people can't be racist. Only white people can be racist. Oh, so it's a power struggle is what it is. And what this is, is a nonstop concerted effort to try to deteriorate the promise of America, which is a Latin phrase. E pluribus unum. Out of many, one. They want you thinking about race all the time. And they're winning. They're making us care about Senator skin color instead of anybody asking the obvious question. Is the Senator smart? Maybe she is. Maybe she's not. I don't know. Is she qualified? What has she done? Oh, no, no. She just fits in the box. Katanji Brown Jackson, affirmative action pick, was asked the question, what is a woman? And she says, I'm not a biologist. I don't know. Literally, one of your nine Supreme Court justices can't tell you what a woman is. It's OK. Most college kids can't either. So that's fine. She's right on pace. But here's the fact that people need to remember. Is that when you have an outcome that you don't like, income levels, wealth disparities, there are other credible reasons to explain that away other than racism. In fact, there are hundreds of other explanations. If you blame everything on racism, everything, then you actually never get down to the root of the issue. And so the question would be this. If you were to say to somebody and they say, oh, America is a systemically racist country, and there's all these issues and all this sort of stuff, you say, OK. So let me ask you, in the black community, do you think racism or lack of fathers is a bigger issue in the black community? Are you even able to ask that question? We have entire corporate America. By the way, a lot of these tech companies right down the streets are the ones underwriting this. Major tech company virtue signaling campaigns, NFL, which I'm so disappointed in them, with these stupid helmet decals, end racism. Obviously, end fathers abandoning the women that they impregnate. That would be helpful. When was the last time the NFL, it takes all of us, all these kind of quasi-communistic phrases, drives me nuts. I think they've toned it down a little bit this year, but I'm sure they'll be back in time for next year's cultural revolution. Presidential years, they really got to ramp up. Everyone's going to get really mad for nine months, and then they'll forget and do nothing and take advantage of those communities. And that happens every couple of years. And so, but then the question is, the NFL, mostly watched by men, right? Instead of lecturing us about, I don't know, it's like the rainbow NFL thing that they do now. Like, oh yeah, this really, just say, how about like stop being like a grown boy and a coward and stay with the woman that gets pregnant. Because fatherlessness is destroying the fabric of our society. When was the last time you saw a single PSA from the NBA, the NFL? No, no, no, because that actually would solve the problem. And they're not in the business of solving problems. They're in the business of staying powerful while the problem continues. And so I'm happy to hear about all the different types of racism that exists in society. Like, oh yeah, there's all these disparate incomes. Yeah, there's other reasons to explain that away. But quite honestly, I won't even entertain that, like at a baseline level until we talk about the stuff that is actually driving the societal decay, which is kind of my final point here. And then we'll do some questions until we run out of time, which is I've been coming to this, the Bay Area for the last decade. And you guys know this. I'm just reminding you that San Francisco is a perfect, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Palo Alto, it is a perfect picture of exactly where the rest of the country is heading, okay? And this entire place is governed by ideology, not by what you are experiencing in reality, but some sort of commitment to an ideological dream. In downtown San Francisco, Nordstrom's closed, Gump's closes. I mean, these are places that I'm sure some of you remember walking the streets of San Francisco without having to worry that you're going to get mugged or someone's going to defecate in front of you. It doesn't have to be this way. And there's a million different excuses. You know, I left Gavin Newsom, you know, he wants to run for president. I'm like, where have you ever been in charge where it's not a hell hole? Like, can you just like tell me one place where you took the oath of office and it's not like some dystopian like feces and filled place afterwards? Like one place. Have you actually improved a place that you've been in charge of? Like, I don't really care about your spin about every sort of thing, you know, the one-liners that you rehearse in workshop. Like, have you ever actually improved the quality of life of the people that you were in charge of? And of course they can't do that because their ideology, Trump's, that's funny. The ideology overrules what is actually happening in front of. But here's the kicker is that your elites, the people at the ruling class on the top of Silicon Valley, not just the Zuckerberg type, that's the elite of the elite. I'm talking about the next level down, okay? I'm talking about people earning four, five, six, seven million dollars at Facebook, four, five, six, seven million dollars at Google is that they're just gonna build bigger hedges and they're going to hire more armed security. They literally don't care that the structural middle class in the Bay Area is evaporating, it is being destroyed. Because for them it's all just kind of peasants in their massive power grab. And what I find to be just hilarious is all these people outside that are so worried that one conservative speaker is coming to speak for 60 to 90 minutes and take questions. Like when was the last time they went outside some mansion of some plutocrat here in Silicon Valley and was like, hey, why don't you do something to fix homelessness? Or why don't you do something to actually not just give money to gender equity or the chemical castration of kids but to actually help, I don't know, people buy groceries. No, because they are, again, they're just pawns in a bigger game, which is they need to be directed towards quote unquote fighting the right winger when in reality your own quality of life is deteriorating in front of you. San Francisco, some of you don't even remember this, was one of the world's greatest cities. It is now a joke. And by the way, I come from Chicago. Chicago's a joke too now. And it doesn't have to be this way. But it happened because we pander to the radical fringe, a fringe that said, oh, the streets are for everybody else. You could do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do. You do not have a society that way. And what will the elites do? They'll just go further away. They'll buy another vineyard in Napa or they'll go down to Carmel or they'll buy another, they'll just flee. And the rest of you that want to make a life in this state and a life in this area are going to be looking around and be like, yeah, you know, I was kind of on board for this socialism thing, but I was really on board for the revolution, but why is there a naked homeless guy like on our yard and I can't remove him? Like, shut up, bigot. Like, oh, okay, great. And if there is an ideology that you are committed to and you have to just compare it to the real world, that's my final thought. It's okay to have ideology. That's fine, okay? Ask yourself the question, is that ideology materially improving any place in the square footage of the United States? And if your ideology is all about like defund the police and more like drug usage sites and, you know, everyone streets their own, then if you think San Francisco is going well, I don't believe you, honestly, because fine, prove it to me. Go to Fishers and Wharf, if you're a young woman, you believe this, with no one with you and walk one mile, one mile alone from midnight to 1 a.m., walk from Fishers and Wharf to the Transamerica building and prove to me how safe San Francisco is. And be like, oh, I'm scared. Oh, you're scared. It never used to be that way. Muggings, robbing, beating, that never used to happen in San Francisco. Everyone felt safe to walk the streets and now all of a sudden people are totally terrorized. And it's happening in New York. It's happening all over these places. We've allowed these hyper aggressive, these ferocious academic ideologues to capture the entire society and they never have to live under the consequences of their own ideas. They will escape them and leave you fighting over the dust of their governance. With that, let's do some questions and God bless you guys. Thank you. Okay, so the way it's gonna work, a couple things. No need to raise your hand. You can start lining up right there. If you disagree, you're welcome to go to the front of the line. You should find out if Ibram X. Kendi actually invites disagreement tomorrow. Second thought, this is a largely conservative audience. So when someone with a more liberal view might say something you find wacky or strange, don't boo them, don't hiss at them. Instead, respectfully listen to them and honestly applaud them for coming to an event that is not ideologically necessarily as friendly. So we invite the disagreement. Don't make feel, we want it. We are a healthier country when we can hear the other side, okay? All right, we have a lot of time for questions. So let's have some fun. Good evening, Charlie. Thank you so much for coming here tonight to San Jose State University. My name is Aiden. I'm a young conservative. I'm actually the chapter president of Turning Point USA, UC Berkeley. I'm excited to be here tonight, especially to hear your thoughts. I'm recently engaged to my now fiance. And I would like to hear your thoughts about constructing a new family and a new society in our modern world. What can I do? What can us as young conservatives do to promote family values in this leftist area? First of all, I'm so happy to hear that you're getting engaged in getting married. Young people, you need to do that more and do it younger and do it earlier. And look, in a world that's falling apart, you need to go out of your way to act in a way that preserves the good, the true, the beautiful, and the things that eternally actually matter, like your relationship with God, your family, having kids. I mean, you're asking for advice, happy to give some. The first thing, though, is good on you. And that is the hard task. And it's one of the reasons why I speak so openly against hookup culture and just all this trash that has infected the younger generation. And by the way, it's not some sort of speculation. The more we have embraced this idea of free sex and hookup culture, we have the most depressed, most suicidal, most alcohol addicted, most drug addicted generation history. Maybe we should ask the question, like going around and acting like a rabbit in your sexual ethics, is that actually creating happier people? And it's not. It's actually creating more distance. It's creating more bitterness. It's creating more depression. It's creating all these different things. So good on you. And so I want to tell you this, that the hard things in life are the fulfilling things. And one of the big lies that we are seeing in modern society is this idea that you can have a joyful, happy, deep, and fulfilling life while not putting in any of the work. And the sad reality for any of you that have been around, you know, the beautiful things take commitment and they take discipline. In fact, it takes saying no to your flesh on a daily basis to not watch pornography, to not smoke weed, to not, I don't think you should drink at all, but if you drink, to not drink in excess, right? To actually ask yourself the question of, am I becoming the best version of myself? And I don't even say those things necessarily in a judgmental way. I really don't. If you're doing those things, you're going to hit a wall eventually. Like the laws of nature will come to, I'm just trying to warn you, the quicker you can escape from that, the better, and to be free of that. And so the challenge for young people, especially young men, because it doesn't come as easier for young men, young women have their own challenges, which we can talk about, which is can you commit to one partner, one person for the rest of your life? And that's a beautiful thing. That is an eternal promise that will bring you joy for the rest of your life and have lots and lots of children. God bless you. Thank you.

Meet Fannie Lou Hamer: Sharecropper Turned Activist
"There's another Fanny that I want to introduce you to. Her name is Miss Fanny Lou Hamer. I don't know about you, but I've been to the Mississippi Delta once. Mea culpa for the cliche, but I did meet some of the kindest strangers I've ever met there. If you're molded from the city suburbs like I am, the Delta will shock your sensibilities. 200 miles long, 87 miles across at its widest point and encompassing approximately 4 ,415 ,000 as you stand you are no more special than an average stock of corn. The flatland, strong enough to tango with tornadoes, will effortlessly swallow you up if you dare it to. Yet the bodies of African -American children, men, and women were forced to stretch across the Delta to domesticate the land for the profit and riches of the patriarchy. First through human exploitation of slavery and then through the economically exploitative system of sharecropping. Now sharecropping has and is practiced globally in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. In the United States after the Civil War sharecropping seceded slavery as a system of agricultural labor where landlords would contract with tenant farmers to lease a portion of land in exchange for a value of the crops. Under this system the tenant farmer would work the land and receive a share of the value of the crop less charges for seed, tools, tenancy, and food. The system was rife with price manipulations which indebted many sharecropper tenants from harvest to harvest. These landlords were largely the same individuals who just months and years before were the slave holders of the now tenants who were just months and years before slaves. After plantation owners were forced to sever their stronghold of human exploitation through the Civil War. It's not a difficult logic leap to understand that the new system with the same old players in the same old place wasn't going to produce a different outcome other than human exploitation. The sharecroppers were living under poor working conditions that kept them in a poverty trap. It was a rigged system but what other choice existed in the South following the Civil War? To live, to eat. Where was a Black person supposed to go? How were they supposed to survive? As compelling testimony to how life can force the hand of change in the inertia of oppression. A once child laborer on a sharecropping plantation in the Delta at the tender age of 45 became a catalyst to end the sharecropping industry's 62 -year reign. Her name was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was a force for social change. All she wanted was freedom. All she wanted was to be a first -class citizen amongst equal citizenry. The best place to begin to know Ms. Fannie might be at the crescendo of her life following an 18 -year period of sharecropping on a cotton plantation near Ruleville, Mississippi. In this season of her life she built a serious career as a voting rights, women's rights, civil rights activist, and community organizer during the violent era of Jim Crow which were racial segregation laws and formal and informal policies. Everyday life for Blacks in Mississippi was a sentence and perpetuity of embodied hardship and then the most extraordinary thing happened. The intention of disruption from community organizers introduced Ms. Fannie to the promise of change through democratic participation of voting. She said, they talked about how it was our right as human beings to register and vote. I never knew we could vote before. Nobody ever told us. We hadn't heard anything about registering to vote because when you see this flat land in here when the people would get out of the fields if they had a radio they'd be too tired to play it so we didn't know what was going on in the rest of the state even much less in other places.
Mark Levin: Democrats Are Not Comfortable With a Colorblind Society
"And it's just like environmentalism well you know Dan the truth is the chapter before talks about anti black racism in the Democrat Party and we've changed our laws we've had litigation up and down the wazoo and for the most part we have equality the law under the law that's what we're supposed to have we've come a long way as a nation despite the Democrat Party and slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and all the rest of it we've come a long way and really we've accomplished most of what we needed to accomplish in that regard so the Democrats they don't believe in individualism or colorblind society so they reach back to the 1970s where you have these bizarre very so -called scholars at Harvard and Stanford and elsewhere some of them coming in from Berlin and other countries and these are Marxists and you have black nationalist movements black re -segregation movements and they all have got behind this idea of white racism a white dominant society and they push this propaganda and they push this hate in order to destroy our history to rewrite our history and the Democrat Party is not comfortable with a colorblind society the Democrat Party is not comfortable with individualism it insists on groupism because the Democrat Party is trying to monopolize our society and our culture and they've gone a long way toward doing that. and so I call this now the civil rights Marxism that is there is no real civil rights movement today who are the leaders now what you have today are people who are self appointed civil rights Marxists and they could be white like Bernie Sanders they could be black and these so -called scholars are all of our colleges and universities they're all over the Democrat Party and they're pushing this ideology that anything that goes wrong in

It is Wednesday, August 30th, 2023. My name is Julie Hartman. I am the host of the Dennis and Julie show, or I should say the co -host of Dennis and Julie, alongside Dennis Prager. That premieres every Monday on the Salem News Channel. I am also the host of my own three times weekly show, Timeless with Julie Hartman, which is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on the Salem News Channel. You can also catch those two shows, Dennis and Julie and Timeless, on the Julie Hartman YouTube page, and of course, you can download them on Apple and Spotify. It is great to be with you. To begin this morning, we're going to talk about a 12 -year -old Colorado student, who on Monday was kicked out of class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. For those who don't know what that is, the Gadsden flag patch, it is the don't tread on me flag that sometimes you see flying around the United States. According to the school district, which kicked this child out of class, that Gadsden flag is only flown in Trump 2020 flag flying white supremacist neighborhoods, which is obviously a lie, and not to mention insulting. This story, I think, provides a pretty apt synopsis of the state of American education for two reasons. First, the teacher who kicked this boy out of class falsely said that the Gadsden patch had, quote, origins with slavery. That is not true. This patch was actually made in the 1770s during the American Revolution, and the slogan don't tread on me was intended to be a message to the British that the American colonists who were rebelling against their rule were no longer going to put up with the British treading on them. That is the first thing that reveals the state of American education because it is very common nowadays for the content in schools to be taught incorrectly. Then the second reason why it says kind of everything you need to know about the state of our country's school system is that in addition to teaching the wrong content, students are being politically persecuted. There was another story in Massachusetts just about three or four months ago where a young 12 -year -old boy, Liam Morrison, was also sent home from school because he dared to wear a t -shirt that said there are only two genders. This is an ever -growing phenomenon in our country, but let's go here to this article I'm reading from American Greatness. On Monday, so two days ago, very recent, a Colorado Springs charter school removed a middle school student from class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack, alleging falsely that the patch had origins with slavery. A video circulating on X features a Vanguard school administrator explaining to 12 -year -old Jaden and his mother why the boy was pulled from class. The confrontation has gone viral, and due to negative publicity, this is great news, the boy was allowed to have the patch in place when he returned to school on Tuesday. That is totally the right strategy. What happened is that Jaden and his mother were so outraged by Jaden being sent home from school that they went public with this clip. They were on Sean Hannity on Fox News. I believe that they also spoke with Tucker Carlson, or at the very least, Tucker Carlson covered this story. That is the right approach. When something insane happens, whether it's in your child's school or in your workplace, you have to go public with it. That is the only way that we are going to expose the rot of wokeism and try to get it unraveled. This past Monday, in addition to being the day that 12 -year -old Jaden was sent home from school, also marked the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous I Have a Dream speech. In addition to Martin Luther King's great activism, nonviolent activism, the thing that ended the racist Jim Crow laws in the South was the fact that Americans were seeing the discrimination against black people on their televisions. The start of cable TV, or at least the popularity of cable TV in the 50s and 60s in contributing to the civil rights movement cannot be underestimated. It is because people started taking video of black people in the South being hosed down by police officers, having dogs unleashed on them. And in the court of public opinion, the Jim Crow laws and other racist measures that were present in the South no longer became acceptable because people were seeing with their own eyes how disgusting it was. That is what we need to do now in this arguably new civil rights era in our country. We need to go public, show video, send audio of a teacher berating a student. So I just thought that was interesting that on the same day that this child was sent home was the same day that Martin Luther King delivered that speech. Similar lessons can be gleaned from both of those experiences. Continuing from American greatness, this is a quote from the school administrator. The reason that we do not want the flag, the reason that we do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade. The Gadsden flag, the surprised mother responded to which the administrator replied the don't tread on me flag. The mother asked what would happen if Jayden removed the patch and the staffer answered flatly the bag can't go back if it's got the patch on it because we can't have that in and around other kids. They're talking about this patch like it has cooties, like if you get within five feet of it, you are going to get a highly contagious deadly flu. We can't have this around other children. Lest they get infected with the imaginary bigotry of the Gadsden flag patch, the mother shot back. Yeah, it has nothing to do with slavery, I love this. The mother is teaching the teacher. That's like the Revolutionary War patch that was displayed when we were fighting the British. Thank you Jayden's mother for teaching basic elementary history to an elementary school teacher. The administrator responded, I am here to enforce the policy that was provided by the district. This is such cowardice. It's not me who's doing this, even though I'm the one who sent the child home. It's a policy. I'm just hiding behind the policy. The mother and son pointed out that other Vanguard kids, Vanguard is the school in Colorado, are allowed to have other various patches on their backpacks. That's exactly right. I bet that there are students at that school who have come in with Black Lives Matter patches or pride patches or even t -shirts with those symbols. Why is that okay? Arguably Black Lives Matter, not just arguably, I mean it's pretty evident, Black Lives Matter is far more offensive of a flag than the Gadsden flag. Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which advocated for uprooting the Western prescribed notions of the nuclear family. The Black Lives Matter organization has accumulated billions and billions and billions of dollars that has gone absolutely nowhere to places that would actually help black people. They purported to raise this money for bail funds and for scholarships and for public school funding. What we have found out is that it has actually gone into the pockets of the founders so that they could buy $6 million mansions here in Los Angeles. Those billions of dollars were also used to, actually they were used for bail funds, but they were used to bail out violent rioters who set buildings aflame. Those riots in 2020 killed 25 people, many of whom were black. But the Black Lives Matter flag is okay. I bet you there would be no issue, but the Gadsden flag, oh yes, that is bigotry. How about the pride flag? You know, pride no longer represents tolerance of those with different sexual identification. It a represents movement that seeks to condone the genital mutilation of young children in the name of so -called gender affirming care. Is that offensive? Would that flag be allowed in schools? I bet you it would. 1 -8 Prager, 776 -1877 -243 -777 -6. Back in a moment. Precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

Triple G has notified me that we actually have a clip of this recording of the administrator telling 12 -year -old Jaden, the Colorado student, that he could not wear the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. I just want to play a minute of the video for you so that you can hear this. And for those of you who are watching the show on the Salem News Channel, you will see that this boy is so polite. He's clean cut. He has a nice shirt on and he's sitting there, you know, with his hands clasped together and he's just nodding and taking it in, incredibly dignified and polite. He didn't say anything like, come on, this is ridiculous. What the heck is going on here? He handled that with such class. His mother should be proud. Let's hear a minute of this clip. Thank you. Do they know what the Gadsden flag is? It's a historical flag. So there, the reason that they do not want the flag, the reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with slavery and slave trade. That is what was, that's the reason behind the Gadsden flag. The don't tread on me, which is the Gadsden flag. Okay, so he, what's going to happen if he doesn't take it all? He, I mean, he is able to go, I was actually just telling him, like, I was upset that he was missing so much school. I'm like, ah! So I asked him, can he just take his stuff out of his bag and go back to class? Like, I just want him to go back to class. The bag can't go back. It's got a patch on it, because we can't have that in and around other kids. So that's what I was trying, and then he said you were close, so I was like, oh, okay. It's amazing that this administrator is saying, you know, I hate that he's missing school. He's missing school because of you, my friend, or not my friend, my enemy. All right, reading continuing from American Greatness, the head of the school told Jaden's mother that the patch was, quote, disruptive to the classroom environment, and that the boy was welcome to return to class on Tuesday, but only if he removed the patch, okay? Because of its creator's history and because it is commonly flown alongside Trump 2020 flags, the Confederate battle flag, and other white supremacist flags, some may now see the Don't Tread On Me flag as a symbol of intolerance and hate or even racism. Oh, gosh. We could spend the entire three hours on that quote. Okay, so many lies in that one sentence. But they're saying that Trump 2020 flags are white supremacist flags. How is that not political persecution? So half this country are white supremacists, really? And then I love this line here. Some may see it as a symbol of intolerance, hate, or even racism. Welcome to the tyranny of the minority. If one person is made to feel uncomfortable by that flag, the entire school has to go along with that person's preferences. This child has to be sent home. As the administrator said, he loses out on learning because this one person may, in a hypothetical world, be uncomfortable. So this is interesting because let's look at these four adjectives that were used to describe this patch, disruptive, intolerant, hateful, and racist. We live in a world where there is such a profound assault on truth. And what comes alongside that assault on truth is an assault on the objective meaning of words, because that's basically another way of saying the truth, that words hold a objective, truthful meaning. You know, when people say, well, what's the harm of calling a man a woman or a woman a man? What's the harm of saying words are violent? This is the harm, because when words lose their objective meaning, the rules and the standards that are associated with those words also lose their objective meaning, and then all havoc breaks loose. There is this standard in American public education. It was established in a Supreme Court case in 1969. The case is called Tinker versus Des Moines, Iowa School District. And it dealt with the fact that students came to class wearing Vietnam War or anti -Vietnam War wristbands, and they were asked to remove those wristbands. And this case went all the way up to the Supreme Court, and the court established what's called the Tinker standard of regulating speech in schools, because they had to balance the fact that sometimes it is necessary and even good to regulate speech in schools for disciplinary reasons, but also respecting the fact that students have First Amendment rights. So they established this standard, which essentially says that students have a right to express political speech, wear shirts, wear backpack stickers, wear wristbands. As long as that speech is not disruptive to the classroom and does not infringe on the rights of other students to learn. So here we see that this school district in Colorado is saying that Jaden's backpack patch is disruptive. And so if we are now calling a backpack patch disruptive, then it means that they can lawfully tell Jaden to go home and get rid of it, because the Tinker standard says that they have a right to censor speech that is disruptive. Once the objective meaning of words change, then that paves the way for the objective meaning of rules and standards associated with those rules to change. Another story that we will cover in this hour is this Spanish soccer league craziness where the head, I believe it was, of the Spanish soccer league went up and kissed one of the female players after the Spanish female soccer team won the World Cup. This kiss, which by the way I do not condone, you shouldn't kiss someone if it is unwanted or without their consent, but this kiss is now being called sexual assault. And this man who planted the unwanted kiss on the female soccer player is under criminal investigation for sexual assault, which in Spain, as in the United States, carries prison time as a potential punishment. Another perfect example of the way that if we change words, then we change the laws associated with those words. Because now if a kiss is called sexual assault, then you can be prosecuted or brought to trial for alleged sexual assault if you kiss someone. This is very scary. That is why conservatives make such a fuss when words are used improperly, because it leads to a slippery slope. And by the way, this is going to affect all of us. There are going to be many people, we're already seeing it happen, who are going to be fired from their jobs or sent home from school for supposedly being disruptive or racist when they're not. We have calls. We'll take them in the next segment. 1 -8 Prager 776 -1877 -243 -7776. I'm eager to hear your reactions. Back in a moment.

We are discussing the fact that this 12 -year -old boy in Colorado was sent home from school on Monday for wearing a Don't Tread On Me patch on his backpack. The school said that he had to remove it. In order to return to school, he and his mother went public with a recording of the administrator admonishing him. And the public outrage over this incident led to the school allowing Jaden to come back with the patch on his backpack. I should also note that the school announced that they would be canceling Parents Night due to quote, unforeseen circumstances. Clearly, they do not want to face some questions about this incident. Let's go to Steve in Chicago, Illinois. Hi, Steve. Thanks for calling in. Yeah, Julie, thanks a lot. So, here's where I'm going to part company with you, okay? Whatever happened at School of Colorado sounds ridiculous, okay? But you beat it like a dead horse a thousand times to make it sound as if this is commonplace. You talk about transgender issues, and Dennis Prager does it nonstop. And what you do, and the way to deceive people, okay, which is what I think you and Dennis do, is to omit from your discussions and your narrative other information that would make what you're saying completely false, okay? What is that information that we are omitting? Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you. You guys beat this transgender drum like they are going to take over the world and destroy civilization. The fact is - When have we ever said those words? That they're going to take over the world and destroy civilization? I listen to Dennis all the time. It's incessant. And the fact is, is there are very few transgender people relative to the population, okay? That's true. Most of us will never meet a transgender person. The few people who are transgender are afflicted with a horrible psychiatric illness, okay? They deserve empathy. No one is forcing them to undergo any transgender hormonal treatment. I'm going to pause you there, Steve. I don't mean to cut you off, but just for the sake of time, I'm going to pause you and I'd like to continue a discussion, but I have to cut in. You are right, Steve, that there is a relatively low number of transgender individuals relative to the population, which is why I ask the question, why is teaching that gender is non -binary and fluid becoming so mainstream if this is so rare? And I encourage you, Steve, and anyone listening who may agree with his disagreement of Dennis' position and my position, I encourage you to read the California Department of Education codes, the Arizona Department of Education codes, New Jersey, Michigan. Many states, blue states around the country, in these codes have things that say that you should teach kids that gender is non -binary. In New Jersey, they say that you should not refer to children using gendered pronouns. Here in Los Angeles, the LAUSD, which has about 450 schools under its jurisdiction, has monthly Rainbow Club meetings where students as young as four years old are subjected to drag queen story hour. This is not a fringe thing. This is very mainstream, and they are also taught these radical gender codes. I agree that people who are experiencing gender dysphoria deserve empathy. That is why I, and I feel comfortable speaking for Dennis, that is why Dennis and I are so disgusted. And that is the word disgusted by this movement, which is saying, legitimizing the fact that it is normal to not feel your gender. These individuals deserve empathy, they deserve therapy, but what they do not deserve is being subjected to doctors and students who are saying, yeah, you're 13 years old or you're 15 years old and you don't feel like your gender, here are some puberty blockers, and by the way, you should have your breasts cut off. This is happening at the Duke University Medical School, Medical Hospital, excuse me, Boston Children's Hospital. This is happening all over the country. I'd like to give Steve an opportunity to respond. We may have to go into the next segment, Steve. We don't have much time. OK. Yeah. What you're saying about people having their breasts, women having their breasts cut off and hormonal blockers, again, it's a misleading narrative you're giving. OK. No, no, no female is going to breast cut off without her consent, without substantial psychiatric involvement. OK. It is not substantial psychiatric involvement. That is not true. You know what? You know what? I've studied this issue. It is true. As have I. As have I. It is very common for these kids. OK, I'm sorry. We're going to have to continue into the next segment. Steve, stay on. We'll pick it up. Back in a moment.

Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I just want to be clear, it's 2023, right, because I just watched something that was, it looked like something from the Jim Crow days, if I'm being honest. And I'm sure many people are talking about it. What happened in Montgomery, Alabama looked like a scene from the Jim Crow days. Now, a brawl near the Montgomery Riverfront Park on Saturday evening was captured on video and posted to social media by onlookers and ended up with multiple people in police custody. Just to be clear, this brawl started when a pontoon boat was blocking the dock where a riverboat was trying to park. The pontoon boat owner was asked by an African American man, a dock worker, he looked like security personnel, he was asked to move so that, you know, to allow the riverboat full of passengers to dock. But the white pontoon boat owner, he refused. The pontoon boat owner, a white male, punched the dock worker who was, you know, just basically trying to do his job. He was trying to push the boat out of the way so that this riverboat could dock. Several white people started attacking the black dock worker, and that's when something very occurred. historic A riverboat worker, a young black man, and this was beautiful, I can't lie and I don't advocate violence, but a young African American man dived into the water and swam, you can see it in the video, he swam to help the black security guy that was being viciously attacked by several whites. After the riverboat full of black passengers docked, two of those passengers approached the pontoon boat and started wailing on the white guys that had previously attacked the black dock worker. A full -out brawl erupted on this Montgomery riverboat waterfront, and unfortunately it was kind of a scenario where it was blacks versus whites. Now, many blacks are calling this a revolution. One woman was seen on TikTok saying a prayer to Nat Turner, thanking him for this display of black unity. Comedian Ricky Smiley said he doesn't condone violence at all, but he caught the holy ghost watching those black men rushing to help that black man that was being viciously attacked by the angry mob of whites. The most beautiful part of this video is the young black man swimming in the waters of the Montgomery, Alabama, you know, water, you know, riverboat park. He was jumped, he jumped into the waters off of the riverboat just so he could come help his fellow black man who was being attacked by some people that refused to follow the rules. I thought that was beautiful, seeing that brother do that. It looked like something from, like, you know, a change is going to come, we're going to overcome. It looked historic. I've never seen a young black man jump into the water and swim, you know, to go help, to go assist a black man who was being attacked. That was beautiful. And this was right off the heels of the Donald Trump speech that was in Montgomery. That is what I'm hearing. Those black men seemed fed up, and every punch and strike could be seen in this video, which has gone viral. Now, several arrests have been made, but many felt these people got exactly what they deserved for ganging up on the black man who was just trying to do his job. You guys have been locked in to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming. Happy Monday, guys.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/07/23
"Any excuse to throw down some James Brown, but I got to thinking I wanted to make a point here. I know why you're doing this. Yeah, James Brown is not what you would call a movement conservative, and James Brown saw Jim Crow in his face for decades and loved this country. Mike loved this country. So I don't know, man, not everybody has to. I'm thinking Living in America is not on Megan Rapinoe's playlist. Or maybe it shouldn't, well, and maybe Living in America shouldn't be on her long -term bucket list of plans. I'm not a love it or leave it person. You get to live here and hate the country. It's part of your free speech. But doggone it, is anybody mystified why somebody who hates this country and tries to jam radical trans ideology down our throats, why it's a little harder for people to root for that team, it broke my heart, Mike, to see them lose. I wanted them to win, but to see them lose and then to have people just joyous, just celebrating, not just our American loss in the Women's World Cup, but because it was largely because of her shanking a penalty kick. It ain't the way we should be. Okay, it's not the way we should be, really. So let me put you on the spot a little bit, my dear friend. Sure. Are you joyous over seeing a conservative, successful attempt to get the attention of Bud Light or Target or Bed Bath and Beyond? Enormously so. So it's the same thing. I mean, it's the exact same thing. Except it's not because this is my country. What country is Bud Light in? But Bud Light is not my country. The men and women who wear our uniform in international competitions. That is our country on the world stage. I call BS. The Women's Cup, the US World Soccer Cup is not my country. Bud Light's my country. There's a whole bunch of hardworking men and women who are drivers, who are distributors, mom and pops, who have been decimated by the Bud Light pushback. And guess what? We sit back and we find that joyous because finally, whoa, companies are getting the message. And that's an American company. So all I would humbly submit is, if you're as... I know, draw your tears. I know. I know. You know, I mean, come on. It's soccer and nothing wrong with that. But here's what I find even more intriguing than the joyous response to the women's team losing. After the big loss at the World Cup, Rapinoe gave an interview, of course, gave interviews after the game was over. And she was asked what her favorite memory of playing for the US soccer team was. Do you know what her answer was, Mark? I would think it might be representing our country, wearing the flag, making my country men and women proud of us on the world stage. I'm guessing that was not it. I'm not kidding you, equal pay. The memory of fighting for equal pay so that women could make as much money for his men in this, of course, bigoted, offensive, awful. And she didn't say that. Those are my words. But she did say her answer was about equal pay. It had nothing to do with playing on the field. It had nothing to do with representing the United States of America. Or even teammates making these friends for life and bonding with them in an effort to bring... The failure to establish equal pay. That's her favorite memory. So I think we can all pretty much agree, and I hate to get personal, she's a pretty reprehensible character. She just is. And it's too bad that she became the face of the US women's team so that now millions and millions of people were delighted to see her shank the penalty kick that she could have been the hero and instead she lost. Would you kindly address the other one I brought up of where our minds and hearts have been broken a little bit? Can we start with the notion that if anybody sees a meme of George Floyd with crab legs coming off him and it's under the knee, like under the sea from Sebastian the Little Mermaid, that that's disgusting and that to even like it is unbelievably stupid. So far so good? So far so good. NASCAR driver Noah Gregson did exactly that. He's been indefinitely suspended. He should not lose his career. His apology should mean something However, dude, how stupid do you have to be? Are you with me on that? I guess I am. I mean, it's like you said, he's a 25 year old guy, stupidly liking something, but you also have to be pretty careful. If you're in the public sphere, you better be careful. You got people watching you. You got people following your every move. You've got a public persona. I mean, I know you're careful. I'm careful. And it's not hard. If I saw that on somebody's Instagram, I don't have to stop and think about it for 10 minutes. Like, huh, should I like that? In South Lake, we had a couple of cops fired because they got up on a whiteboard, no pun intended, and drew a swastika during a recruiting meeting. How stupid do you have to be? So, I mean, it's just dumb stuff. And you don't, I mean, how people don't follow the, like you said, the little, does it pass the smell test? Is this something that could get me in trouble? I mean, if you're in there now, you and I are in a little bit of a different world than a NASCAR driver, but certainly a NASCAR driver has the ability to say that, Hey, I'm going to like something here. This could get me, you know, get me some headaches. And in line with that, I got to ask you about the, what's the Dallas express? Is that, is that part of the Dallas Morning News? It's a no, no, Lord, no, no, no, no, no. Oh, is it conservative? It is by all means. It is a, it is a news site of conservative value. Oh, okay. Cause I've never seen it, but I, the article came across my desk today about sign, people have noticed over at the American Airlines Center in Dallas that a funny take on American Airlines woke policies and they've gone woke. I mean, American Airlines is all about diversity, equity and inclusion and all that. And so they've got fake signs up, focusing on the big high profile boxing match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz. The signs were located in different places around the arena in Victory Park and other parts of downtown Dallas. Some of the signs said things like, welcome to woke American Airlines. My pronouns are he, she, it, lost baggage.

Yeah, look at this For those of you who mock as I have been mocked by the left For speaking about Making America great again. They say America was never great Well, I don't know what that means great in comparison to what was it great in comparison to other countries I think it was was it great in comparison to perfection? No, it wasn't But you you compare people to people not to images and likewise for countries Clearly there was a terrible racial problem Like Jim Crow for example in the 1940s So that obviously has to be thrown into the mix However, there were dominant values That were good You know what the percentage of Americans who lived alone in 1940? Eight
Mark Davis Celebrates Supreme Court Shockers
"Told me Yeah, how long do we see the Dobbs decision coming you told me five years ago and I've done this for a long time If you told me five years ago 2018. Hey mark in pretty short order That right to abortion That the Supreme Court so fictitiously found in 1973. It's gonna be gone. Oh and by the way, so will affirmative action the Outdated and listen, I'm being kind in calling it outdated the fraudulent vengeful poisonous Policies that say look because we had slavery we had Jim Crow We have had some injustice that what we're going to do to respond to that is tilt the injustice back in the other direction when Logic and the law dictate that the way to respond to unfairness is fairness the way to respond to injustice is justice You remember the late 1970s of the Bakke decision that's been often invoked as a result of the affirmative action ruling We used to call it reverse discrimination Remember that pernicious term. Hey reverse discrimination. I hated that then I was like 20 And I hate it now. It's 65 Because reverse discrimination implies that hey, it's okay. It's the pendulum swinging back We have discrimination, but now we got reverse discrimination seems like balance seems like fairness when of course, it's nothing of the kind The proper response to Injustice is justice the right response to decades if not centuries of treating people badly is to treat everyone Well,
Uncovering the History of the Pro-Life Movement With Randall Terry
"It's interesting that when you're really successful in moving the dialog, the culture, people kind of move on, they forget they're ever was a day when evangelical Christians couldn't care less about the unborn. And it's only because of Francis schaeffer and because of Randall Terry and a handful of others that Christians who claim to believe in Jesus and the Bible suddenly understand, oh, that means killing the unborn is wrong. Fascinating to think about. There's a phrase that I heard years ago. Winners write history. And so every child in America learns about the civil rights movement. Ending the Jim Crow laws and any segregation because they won. The reason that my name and the name of operation rescue is not known to so many young people is because up until now, we haven't won. But now that roe is overturned, there's a documentary crew coming around that I'm a central part of their documentary in its on Frances shaffer. And the whole, it's an HBO documentary and the whole premise of it is that Francis schaefer gave this theology and Randall Terry took it to the streets. So I'm saying to people, look, doctor schaeffer gave us the theology, doctor Martin Luther King gave us the tactics. I just combined them and we went out into the street and it went to seed. So when these tens of thousands of people got arrested, many of them went on into politics. People have been elected to the U.S. House. Many people elected to the U.S. House who were arrested with us. Many people have become campaign managers. They work in campaigns. They've fought to get control of the Republican Party in their area to make it the pro life party. It didn't used to be this way. People don't even know that there were pro life Democrats and pro abortion Republicans.
Black Males Responsible for Over 50% of Violent Crimes in America
"So then you have to look at the murder rate. You say, over half of murders in this country and all violent crimes are done by black males. And then you have the incarceration rate. So you say about half of the murders over half of the murder victims are black. So you have the black perpetuators of murder, black victims, and incarceration rate per CAPiTA black people incarcerated higher than anybody else. And so you got and then the father listeners, we used to be 25% father of his homes. At the height of Jim Crow, after slavery and all the things we've been through, we stayed together as a family unit. Now we 70 80% fatherless homes. Leaps and bounds above any other race. If you can not fix these things. And I'm not even talking about education. We're schools in the country. Not only were schools of country kids can't even read at grade level. Some of these black schools, they can't even read. They're not prepared for life.
Leftist Racism and Youth Crime
"If you have any wisdom or even just common sense. If the message is repeated over decades, that if you commit a crime, you being a member of a certain group, we will not hold you morally responsible. We might hold you legally responsible, but we do not hold you morally responsible. Do you think you will get less or more crime? Okay, it's a rhetorical question. This dehumanization of blacks is part of the greatest racism since slavery and Jim Crow, left wing racism. The left regards blacks as inferior human beings. Whites are responsible for their behavior. If it's bad, blacks are not responsible for their bad behavior.
Trish Welcomes Larry Elder, "The Black Face of White Supremacy"
"Larry. Good to have you here. Chris say hello to the blackface of white supremacy. As I was called by the LA times when I ran for governor by a columnist who was like email. It was initials are Erica D Smith, oops. Yeah, you know, look, I know that what you're doing comes from a very good place. And I know that in part just because I know you, but also you've really over the years, pointed out the policy flaws that I think have left so many black Americans disenfranchised. This new movie, and by the way, I say new, this is actually a sequel to the uncle, the original Uncle Tom that you wrote. But this is the second one. And you get into some of these things. I mean, people ought to know, there was a lot of success. Was there not within the African American community long before the war on poverty in the 1960s in my estimation really destroyed so much of it. Absolutely. And by the way, it's a collaborative effort, both these films. The director is Justin Malone. He's absolutely brilliant. It was scored by an amazing composer, a named David criswell, and co written by the star chattel Jackson guy named rival writer Ansel and myself. So it's a collaborative effort. But you're absolutely right about the success of black America. The first one talks about post slavery. When you're talking about an environment with the Klan, lynchings, Jim Crow, still, black people kept moving forward. Why? Basically four reasons. Reliance on family. Even during slavery, a black child was more likely to be born under a roof as biological mother and biological father than to the day.
If You're Black, Be Thankful for America
"You should be, you should look at that situation and say, look how God brought us from being slaves to now we live it, we can live the American Dream. Look at what my people fought for, how much more should I be diligent in succeeding today? And let me say this because I'm so sick of people being victims and I'm sick of it. How is it that? Black people who were born into slavery have accomplished more than black people now. In our day and age, when there's no Jim Crow or no slavery, explain to me it is. How did Booker T. Washington create a whole university? And accomplish the things he compass, he was born into slavery. How was he able to do that? How was Madame C.J. Walker able to become the first female millionaire out of any race? How was she able to do that? These people were in the late 1800s. Y'all jokers in the 2000s, technology everywhere. You can do anything in America. You know, if you say, I want to start, I don't know, a dog grooming company. You can go right now. And look on your phone and there's videos on YouTube teaching people how to start a dog room and company. What companies you should and shouldn't work with. How to build an LLC. I mean, if you ain't successful, you don't want to be. Especially for black folks. They got all kind of opportunities for being black.

Preparation Over Handouts
"Education system, this affirmative action stuff. I think that we need to move away from it. Because we don't need to hand people something. We need to help them be prepared. Because when you give young people education for free and their school was not preparing them for the college environment, they are going to fail anyway. And you literally gave that opportunity to somebody that wasn't ready for the opportunity. How about you spend the resources to make sure that they're qualified when they come out of high school? If the school is low performing and nobody can pass the end of the year, state exam, how about you prepare and get the kids in a position where they can pass the exam instead of saying, oh, let's lower the score on the exam because these black kids are too dumb to do this stuff. No, that's not the way it worked. Give them resources. Give them, you know, a better education. Don't say give them. They're paying for it. So how about you do your job? How about the government do its job?
DEI Must DIE
"Diversity hire, I think is the craziest, most ridiculous forced upon hiring process or hiring practice in the United States of America. Why do you say that Brandon is because listen? Let me just say this for us all. We want to have the best qualified police officers to wear the badge and patrol the community. The goal is, if you want women to be on the police department, let's have a program to help women be more equipped to be police officers. If you want more men from the inner city, or wherever you're trying to recruit, have a program to help young men get through the process. Therefore, there are equipped and they're qualified and they're ready to become police officers. Don't just start your recruiting ideas by saying we need more black officers. So let's go out at all means necessary and recruit black officers. It's like, no, if they're not already getting there, then make sure that they're qualified and help them get through the process. When I say get to the process, you know, help them understand, you don't need the help. Normal people understand, but I'm saying people who are not understanding people who are not qualified, not ready, not prepared. Help them get prepared and then hired him.
