"Guys? I am Julie and we're the girls behind comments. Nice loves and welcome back to another week, Angel. A full disclosure. You guys had a long fucking weekend. Long. Again! God, I'll just quickly really the only reason I'm saying this like I'm going to be totally fine. It's just. For Sake of transparency and I think I'll just feel better if I just get it out I. Don't feel like to pretend. Obviously as you guys know, my dad is like my favorite person in the entire world, best friend etc, and you also know. He had two heart attacks in he is eighth, and on at like midnight on Saturday night Sunday morning he went into eighth, and it was just me and him I was fucking stoned. I was like convulsing a whole thing. His his his heart rate ended up getting. You know going down blood pressure going down, but he's gone to take his pills three days in a row. It was like a whole situation, so yesterday was just a lot of crying and. I'm fine now. Today's the first day I feel like I can breathe in twenty four hours so. I don't think I'll the often I guess I just wanted to get that out. More personal than we normally get. It was weighing on me. I didn't. I feel fine now because I will tell you this. When I woke up this morning, he was on the treadmill like I think he's trying to prove a point to me that he's GonNa take it more seriously, but he was doing bicep curls. He was on the treadmill and it made me. Happy that it seemed like he was taking it more seriously, but. Actually literally after this I am calling my therapist. That's my first call. We'll do this through. Listen, you can go. Everything is good. Enjoy got to see her. Little grandparents were so hugh. Love them you so much. I am they're the cutest things I've ever seen. In my entire life. I can't even handle it, I know. Anyway we have I. Don't know I think maybe a long episode. We'll see how it goes. On the form of Before! We start though as you guys know every week, we are highlighting a black owned business, and I personally really excited about the one from this week. So there's this woman. Her name on Instagram is jade purple. Brown her instagram, just in general to follow his great, and her website is Jay Purple Brown Dot Com and she's an artist, an illustrator and she does. These are very colorful prince kind of almost like a sixties fashion vibe. And if you go on and website, you can buy prince, but she also is a book. It's called words to live by, and it's basically a book of fifty illustrated quotes by fifty amazing women. I love this woman stuff like it's. Very vibrant, it's really like. Of that'd be great for a Beach House or just the type of peace that makes your room happy I. Know Isabelle bought the book I bought. The book didn't come yet. Though it's a great coffee table book so definitely. Check her out. I think I. Think she's a great follow. When also great to purchase realm, so I wanted to highlight that one and thank you again Isabelle. She's really good at finding. She always finds great stuff shop, so she also found this one. Good at her job. I'll tell you that much. Okay There's some heavy stuff this week, but that's okay. We'll get through it with grace. I hope so first thing we wanted to talk out was Christa Leah and what is happening there? I also should give a trigger warning for sexual assaults and pedophilia. So, basically, what happened was last week, a series of allegations came out against Christie. Lia, the first one was a woman named Simone, and she tweets I still can't believe Netflix Kristalina. As the pedophile in the season of you like a little irony, imagine getting owned by sixteen year old. She then posted screen shots of her email exchange with him. Imagining Sixteen and being groomed by stand up comedian twice your age and the only reason you never met up and never got physically molested was because you had just gotten a boyfriend your own age. Someone else then tweets although I've been publicly saying it for, Years Fuck Kristalina. He solicited news off of me when I was seventeen years old in constantly, message me whenever he was touring Vancouver, and asked me to come back stages a shows I'm so unsurprised. Multiple girls are coming out with almost the exact same story is mine. It's a known fact. He's a fucking pervert. He plays those roles perfectly when acting. Someone else fuck Kristalina. You solicited news reminders while you were in Vancouver and try to fuck my friend. We were sixteen and why called you out on twitter? You told you you told her you'd ruin her if I didn't delete it absolute pedophile scumbag. So, this comes out and I. Guess for about two days didn't say anything. He then releases his statement GMC, and says quote I know I've said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women. At any point, all my relationships have been both legal and consensual, and I've never met her exchange any inappropriate photos with the people who've tweeted about me. That being said I. Really Am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who absolutely let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That's my fault I own. It I've been reflecting on this for some time now. I promise I will continue to do better. than. I think everybody was kind of waiting for Whitney Cummings because. Only are they very close friends they also I think like a brand association almost. They've done a lot of work together. Obviously her show Whitney. And a couple of days later, she posted on. Instagram, it's taken me a couple of days to process the information I've learned about Chris. I'm devastated enraged by what I've read and learned. This is a pattern of predatory behavior and abuse. The powers enabled by silence. Now that I'm aware won't be silent. Gross should be able to be a fan of comedian. Admire without becoming a sexual target. Is the adults responsibility to be an adult? Okay, let me just first say. I was really disturbed. Reading all these because the similarities between the accounts was overwhelming and. The. You know all of these women had. Again. You believe women regardless it's not screen. Shots were not that being said the screen they showed I thought made it even More disturbing because of the age because of his kind of willingness and lack of regard for their age. Don't you know yeah, absolutely? Yeah well. That's the thing that was so interesting also is that. You know people. People were tweeting in defense of him, and I saw a lot of this ton of this, and you know the idea that people would rather believe that this comedian they like is innocent versus believing Cuba were coming forward. Showing their receipts show again not that they had to showing the receipts showing the similarities between their interactions, which is not a coincidence like when you see similarities in patterns of behavior between people that are coming out in their stories about A. A person like that's no coincidence that is, that is what they do. It's I'm reading catching. which is the book about Harvey Weinstein and each person's account that they came out with talking about Harvey Weinstein was they were shocked by the similarities of person's story, and these people aren't you know these people aren't taxing each other in conversing before putting out a story, this is their own account and when you see them, start to match up like that. There's a reason for that. Yeah it's pretty. It's pretty disgusting. I really say I really meanest I say do this at your own risk, because it's disgusting and also fury eating you go deep in some of these twitter threads the men, and it's really mostly that will come forward with these elaborate conspiracy theories to disprove these women's allegations. I don't know if you saw some loans about Chris, but it's like you know clearly. These women knew each other making up. And it's like you have it right in front of you at it's they. They would so much rather go go to these. Lengths to not believe him. Intend to be able to put this on this catastophe that they have in mind for so long and. It's really sickening. It really is I think. I think this guy is a serious problem. This abusive power. This was clearly a interest in young women in children. Really I just. This was gross a I. have nothing to say other than this was gross and absolutely unacceptable anything. From what I saw a lot of the. I think a lot of other male comedians are starting to like. Check themselves doing a fair way to put it. Yeah, and I well listen I think that the abuse of power is. Also coming to lay in terms of male comedians and Possibly I don't know this for a fact, but there's also the possibility of other female comedians knowing about this. Not You know what I mean, but I think that this was a a story that broke and I think now there are other things that are going to come forward, and we've seen you know different clips that have come forward of male comedians laughing about. Exploiting their you know their power using sexual advances to give women in comedy power. An these threatens that you're starting to see in there much power in the Internet being able to expose these things, but the thing. That's the crazy thing to me. Is People pulling up clips from? Old podcasts that were already posted its value coming up with stories opposing their own accounts, these are men that are talking about their own stories, willingly in putting it out. There and people are now. Going through that, so it's not like it's not like that we're seeing different allegations coming forward. It's people who are putting themselves out there. Oh I know well. That's that's always with with all of this type of stuff that at the time regardless, and I'm not just talking about with sexual assaulter with rape or specifically issues. With this regard, really whatever it is at the time, if it isn't taken as seriously societally or culturally, people can get away with it, and then when you have a lens a couple years later, that is so much more refined and clearly holds people accountable. Then people start to go back in recognize how crazy it was it. The stuff was even. Katie said so freely I mean it's different than I'm not comparing the two, but it's similar to the fact that Stacey proudly went on. Spoke very proudly about calling the cops on this woman, a couple of years ago, batted an eye, and it's not until net where we are in this massive conversation about race in America things are changing when this. became a red flag it just it's very. You know interesting the way that society kind of dictates what is quote okay in the eyes of the public? Even if the action itself was never okay, you know will the other thing that was talking about this. I think last night. When I was saying it was that. When you put out content in your certain, you know person. There so much of your fan base. That's only paying attention to what you're saying, and there are a reason that they are your fan base in the sense that like they don't bat an eye at the things you say because they're already so desensitized to anything. That's coming out where they think that either a it's normal because there are a fan of yours and you're saying it to for. It's not bad I think they think that. If you are posting it freely or talking about a freely auto podcast, and it's not bad, because otherwise you would be saying. or they themselves just don't find an issue with it, so they don't say anything in that makes up a huge fan base in huge listener base, if not the whole listener base when it's going out there, so those are the people that aren't banning in I added, but when something comes out about the person or something out about the situation and other people with a different Lens, go back and listen. That's when these things figured out. Exactly fan base is that it's hard to break those things down. Yeah No, no, exactly it's almost like it operated within its own little kind of Echo Chamber Damian when it's just. An yeah, it's. It's really unbelievable. There was also a video that I can't show you right now, but we're Chris was on some podcast and. They were talking about some scenario about how I. I don't even know exactly what it was about, but these people were talking on snapchat and I guess the girl sage the messages and he was like. What do you mean like? It was on snapchat. I thought that disappears like no, you can save it and you. I'm sure most of you have seen is, but if not just google video, you see his face, so immediately switched to sheer panic like you can see the years turning. You can see him being like Oh shit. Because according to a lot of these women, a lot of his exchanges were done on snapchat. For the purpose of I'm sure it disappearing, anonymity and stuff, and it was very telling clip I felt, did you? Oh, you can watch the gears turning in your head, and I said that you I. Thought that was one of the most telling things about the whole situation was his use of snapchat. Because to me, it's not just like your messages disappear like I. It was confusing to me in that clip that he didn't know that at all, but like think about snapchat like yeah, the messages disappear, but that's not the only way you can get that. Mutate one of their phone and take a screen shot in there. You have it. I thought the snapchat part was so interesting, also was because that's how teenagers communicate, and his knowledge of that in him, using that platform that most men at his age don't use to communicate with people. Their age I thought was incredibly telling it was like he went down to the level that he knew he could communicate with them what? Exactly I also think that. You know in terms of his statement. When he said everything I did was both consensual and legal like. I mean there's so much wrong with it, but the other thing is. It in some of those messages I, it wasn't like you know. He very clearly recognized their age, and then kept going. So, what is your defense there? It's almost as if he's discounting the entirety of the proof. Do not mean like I. Don't know I I. Don't know. It came across as dislike. This massive sense of entitlement almost. You know. I was I was actually really surprised that a statement these I thought it was awful. I thought it was terrible. I thought that. First of all. You can't. Discount evidence like people are coming forward with stories that they have that all match up receipts. They have you e mail receipt. Snapchat receipts like you can't discount evidence to say that like. You know every girl was legal. When you're using legal in these terms or in your own terms like you're using it as a technicality, if you're paying attention to what stay is legal, and of what age like they're you're? You're grooming them. You're doing something incorrect like there is clearly a pattern that you're exhibiting here where it's like you're saying. Technically, they were all legal like. Yeah. Maybe that's a gray area for you, but when you're really looking at the situation, that's not a gray area anymore. That's you exploited. It's just it's just A. It was just creepy and I'm very curious to see what. What continues to happen in terms of the trajectory of his career. I really am because I hate to say this. Just being super honest like we have seen this stuff. Come Out, and then absolutely nothing changed and I wonder for in a climate in our things will be taken more seriously and free passes won't be given, but also. I don't know. Be. I don't of course. That's what I hope that he. Gets what he deserves, but also I. We've seen this happen so many times when there's just this release, strong core fan base that isn't going anywhere and doesn't care and I'm curious to see what happens, aren't you? Yeah, very I, think also. It's really like one last thing I'll say about. I think it's really interesting and also important that these conversations are happening around the same time as the police brutality conversations because one of the most important. Threads in things I've seen throughout this whole movement. Is People talking about? Their experience, dealing with the police when they had to report their rape or sexual assault and how unbelievably? Unhelpful and detrimental. The police were on a lot of cases to their story in their reporting I think that those two things happening at the same time is incredibly important in people sharing their stories about you know I did go to the police, and this is what the police told me. This is why rapes, sexual assaults are so underreported, because people are scared to speak out, and when you see People's replies on twitter, attacking people for speaking out. People see that they take that into account then prevents other people from telling their story, and it's so detrimental, so I think the every single aspect of this is important to discussing this moment right now, because it all relates together I totally totally agree with you. Going off of that I just wanted to mention. A has been happening in the last forty eight hours or so, and it's kind of been a little bit scattered, but Allegations via twitter also came out against Ansel Elgort, which he denied via statement, and also against Justin Bieber, which he denied with a statement and a series of receipts kind of explaining his whereabouts, and the initial tweet from the woman who accused Justin Bieber have been deleted but her name is Danielle. She alleged the event took place on March, ninth, two, thousand, fourteen, or not gonna read both her statement in his responses, because it's honestly just too long for the sake of this episode, but we initially saw it on pop create think you can still find it there. What we did. WanNa get into a little bit just because people seem to be really confused, and honestly we were too, but this is regarding Cole sprouse and the Castro Riverdale. Basically what happened was on Sunday one woman came out with allegations against Cole sprouse. And then multiple other women replied to that Tweet, saying also I was abused by Lily Reinhart Caja APPA Vanessa Morgan. What ended up happening from there was users traced back these multiple people's different IP addresses, and it was all coming from the same address. Someone tweeted I'm sorry. The riverdell fans the accusations going around or false, the person creating them as a Cole sprouse fan who wanted to prove that anyone can lie on the Internet I told him not to do it because it just credits victims and they told me shut the fuck up. Coal Lily they kind of all came out just denying the allegations also. How did they take these things? Really seriously and this type of attention seeking behavior that is rooted in no truth kind of. Really doing a disservice to the real victims that actually undergo these traumas and. You know. It's fucked up because it does show how quickly this type of stuff can spread, and at times it can be false just like anyone can have malicious intent, you know. Yeah and I think. That's one of the biggest things that I think. We all need to take away from. This is that. Yes there are situations where people lied. They live for ten. They life for any number of reasons, but you can't use those situations to discredit victims, and I think that that is something that everybody has to keep in mind, because if you're willing Tito, take Cole sprouse, situation or take somebody else's situation. That is it true that you don't believe in order to say that somebody else's is lying or somebody else? Not telling that you or another celebrity couldn't possibly have done this. It's so incredibly unfair for you to take that situation manipulated to your own agenda. I completely agree with you I completely agree. It's just it's. It's It's. The same you know in the same out side of it. It's so incredibly unfair for you to lie about something or to make up something just to prove something about the internet or do prove something about yourself or whatever because? If you're not gonNA think about the celebrity in that situation. If that's not enough for you, think about other victims that are going to be affected by. You know what store you're putting out. Well. That's exactly what I was just GonNa say you know it's one thing for the celebrity, which also is unfortunate circumstance for them to have to be in to deny something that didn't take place if that is the case, but for so many other people, and I say women, but it's men and women. Men can be victims of sexual assault as well and. You know an in is just so unfair because I think it makes especially when. Actual victims see the response I think it's then I can provide at least what I was reading. Just so much fear in terms of coming out in the first place. Because there's this the more people that lie about it. There's more this Arab disbelief and it's just. Unfortunate situation all around and. I just. I don't know this was the heavy week for sure you know. Yes definitely. Is a WANNA span that makes it really easy to maintain your health goals with customize vitamin plan that helps you feel your best today, and also for the long-term they have hassle-free vitamins and supplements that I delivered to you, and I think it just makes taking your vitamins in supporting our health goals a lot more attainable, they also, the new line is called the. The skin and hair collection that helps you to work on your beauty goals from all angles, so it's a combination of kind of targeted ingredients for hair skin and nails the other thing about them is the quality that you can see and you can taste. They are very focused on the quality, the science, the research that goes into each of their products and their. Their recommendations and also the way that this works. There's this online quiz and it's very very easy I. Did it basically go on? And you answer questions about your Diet your health goals your lifestyle and they recommend list vitamins and supplements that works specifically for you, which for me? This is huge because this is the kind of thing where it's not a one-size-fits-all approach. Approach customizable programs like this are really really important, because we all have different goals, not only what we want, but also what we need, and so for fifty percents off your care of order to take care of dot com enter code celebs fifty again for fifty percents off your I care of order.

I I don't know like I am living for this. I always thought that Brian Nelson and at Megan. Fox were really couple, but. Since she's been whatever she's been doing with the Gun Kelly Julie. I'm so weirdly into it. You know I taxi that the other day. I was like I'm saying this right now and I'm saying unapologetically I think that Megan Fox and machine gun Kelly are a hot couple couple. No I think so too, and they've been seen around a lot recently. And then he instagram story a cake. Drag us. They were having like kind of picnic, and he wrote in love. I'm sitting there like Oh my God. You're in love like Holy Sh- I getting GIDDY. But the thing is like. Isn't everyone in love with Megan Fox. Like couldn't anybody postbag? Vox would be like in Lavin. Tactically would be true. I, no, no I know it's I. think he is probably like this is the craziest thing ever you know. You probably can't believe it. It's probably the same thing is like again because there are also best for the p Davidson Arianna, situation. It's similar. Vibes doesn't feel that way. Yeah, like he doesn't like Oh my God. I lease jerk off the transformers all the time. Now I'm dating. I want listen and. My heart definitely does go out to Brian because I can see. I think that he you know from what he said I think. He thinks that there was a possibility that they get back together which? You? Know I'm not discounting. That could happen, but she seems to be really spent again. It could just be temporary could just be a change of pace but I want whatever's best for both of them, and sometimes that means it's not together I. Don't know what that is. Amiss case but I just want her to really be living in. It seems like she's doing that and I could not be happier. Julie same same could not. Okay the next thing that we wanted to briefly talk about was regarding Chelsea handler. It happened last week, but we haven't had a chance to speak. About are on the podcast. It was important Tussaud Julie. I'M GONNA. Let you intro this one. So, Chelsea handler had posted a video of Louis Farrakhan and Louis Farrakhan is a political activist, but he is also an incredibly well known anti Semite. So. Chelsea handler post this video where Louis Farrakhan is basically explaining why white people are so afraid to confront their own racism in in that clip alone if you're watching that video in vacuum. It does make sense, but the issue is, is that the other rhetoric that he continues to speak on regarding Jews and also a lot of anti lgbt rhetoric is so extremely problematic. So when she posted this video multiple people commenting they're like. Listen I know this video seems fine out of context. I think they gave the benefit of the doubt in the beginning that she didn't know what she was posting I, said. Listen I know you know you. This video contains whatever information you're spreading, but you should also know this about him. And multiple people comment to this and the longer that she kept it up. The the more people were frustrated by the fact. Is I think what happens? Is that. When you post something like a video of Louis Farrakhan out of context when the video is just pertinent to the situation. You know if you don't know anything about him and you don't know anything about his past. You know that's one thing. But to keep it up with that knowledge, that's purposeful and that's when I think. People started to have a really big issue, and instead of saying you know I. I had no idea about this I'm just GonNa. Take a down. Chelsea handler continued to reply to comments. You know either. Louis Farrakhan anti-semitism or saying that you know she was going to keep it up. Because you know out of class, teachers to look choose look at you. Know the good things that he says instead of the bad. and. You. Know I did read I think I should read those comments because they're very jarring. Yeah Couple at this by reading. I'm just GONNA couples. Someone comments I believe in black lives matter, but you lost all credibility when he started posting videos from antisemitic eight preachers. Better than the fringe right-wing supporters. You Loath hated hated by supporting Farrakhan you might as well be alright. She says well. You should stop following me then the message in what he said in that video appealed more to me than the ugly side of him. Someone else comments so based on this logic. If you find a video Hitler saying something, positive and powerful. Will you feel quality? We feel equally compelled to share it. You gave hey credibility in a large platform today, and she says no, because Hitler was responsible for killing millions of lives, fair canisters responsible for his own promotion of antisemitic beliefs. They are very different. Says another thing. Perhaps Farrakhan's anti Semitic views took from his own oppression. We know we know now that oppression of one race leads to an impression of all races. This was disgusting I'm sorry this was disgusting what he was actually saying in the video I can understand in a vacuum. You. Know furthers the message that she's trying to spread, but. The two cannot be. The. Two cannot be looked at separately. You know. And this is what I was saying to you about. The situation is that. Chelsea handler has. Made her space, a space of activists and I'm not trying to discount work that she has done in that area I think that she is really dedicated herself this 'cause to understanding white privilege and to you know explaining black lives. Matter. I'm not trying to take away from that, but. I think that if you're going to make your space a space for activism, and for people to go as a resource people to you know you're asking people to trust you entrust the information that you're putting out if you're putting out information that. Has Other. Problems associated with it that people don't know about your spreading heat because people are now looking at your page and they're saying okay. Chelsea Handler Post Louis Farrakhan, that somebody that we can trust because we trust Chelsea handler. We Trust her opinion of people, and meanwhile we. Farrakhan has multiple quotes. Praising Hitler for bringing Germany from the ground up and you know referring to Jews is termites and. The list goes on and on and on end. You know if your you know. There's so people that you can post in so many powerful quotes from this time in so many powerful people. With such amazing messages that for you to pick somebody that has such a problematic past in such an past present to and such problem rhetoric. It's like you are basically saying to your followers that like you know I understand this guy offends you, but you're really not the followers that I care about offending right now or not. Like big. FAULK! I completely agree and I wanted I really want to make sure that I make this very clear that I- cause multiple other celebrities posted this initially. People fuck up like as much as you try to vet your content. Sometimes you see something. It's powerful in the moment you shared. I would never fall someone for that initially I get it happens, but to double down in the way that she doubled down and basically literally say I get that. He had antisemitic beliefs, but also to me. There's no, but also if you reverse that I, don't think I'm sorry. It's not like I. Just I found that. Be Really Really Really A. Not Okay. And like I feel you, and I are the last people to get kind of offended by this type of thing. That's not what I meant. I just thought it was in really poor taste I. really really thought it was in poor taste. It was and I think that it was deeply offensive. I think to double down and say that like his non anti medic side speaks you more than his antisemitic side I mean. Could you imagine if we did that with every single person? If we just took the good side of them anymore, the bad. You can apply that same logic to anybody. I mean what what's the difference? Honestly I'm not just saying this. What's the difference between that and Chris Fans? Saying like well I really like his comedy in that side appeals to me more. Right exactly. Movie downside if your skills to me more like a, you could apply that logic to any situation. It's ridiculous logic and she knows it, and she also again as somebody who is an activist, would never apply that logic to a different situation. It was fucked up. Was it was it was the wrong movement? People fuck up I I understand that I'm not like I get an. She ended up deleting video I. was just appalled at the way that she doubled down, I actually was appalled. That someone is intelligent is her who is speak so proudly, and so vocally on issues of oppression would be so willing to support this continually. You know what I mean. The only reason he took it down was because she got so much backlash. She had no intention of taking this. Downing was down two days later as she as she continued to get backlash. And I have to say that one of the things that actually. Honestly offended me. Boast about the situation. Was that it? Was One thing to post. It was one thing to double down I have to say something that really upset me was that. I saw this news story posted practically lower. You know celebrities, every single thing they do becomes a story, but Chelsea. Handler like runs with antisemitic rhetoric, and there is not one people article, not one US weekly article, not one news article. No one's writing about it like I saw. I saw those articles, but like in terms of the pop culture vessel to examine that we're you know Chelsea. Fans are GONNA, look no one wrote about that. Yeah, it's so. It's very alarming. I know. Very, true It's interesting to see the way that. The media portrays these type of things you know. It's very very interested are brought that was. Let's move onto. Someone who just we can take a breath of fresh air, which is beyond, say Julie I just. Like I just felt my whole body calm down I. Know Why don't you tell us what happened so beyond to draft a song called black parade and the. Purpose of the song was not only in support of black lives matter movement, but also in support of lack businesses and she posted on her website. Along with the song she had posted multiple black owned businesses that you can support Ed posted something about it was on June teens. She posted and said. Do you WanNa read it. warned. Happy. Happy June teams being black as your activism block. Excellence is a form of protest black joys. You're right. Black parade benefits be goods black business impact fund administered by the National Urban League to support black owned small businesses need, and by the way to of the businesses and organizations that she highlighted on her website, which are ones that we have spoken about which is gilded, the body brushes and the Loveland Foundation, and I was so excited for them beyond a put them on her huge platform, and said it last week, and I will say it again. Body brushing done religiously seriously works. Also. Jeez, E. N. at Ashley Benson. Guys are like becoming a couple because you know. Of course, they've seen seen imaginer. They were seen a dinner a different restaurants and now she apparently took him as her her sister's wedding. Did this, give you at. I'm not saying it's the same level extremely thinking lives tower. Over the funeral. I was waiting for you to say that like a little bit and not in a not a I. Don't mean that negatively because I think like you can take someone to a wedding that you don't even know well. You know what I mean like a funeral. Or creed as the funeral like it gave you the same leg vibe. For second because it's not like, it's some random wedding. It's your sister's wedding in. You would think that if you're surrounded by your entire family, you want to bring someone not only that you're very comfortable with, but also that you feel like you don't have to kind of babysit like it's a big honor whoever you choose to bring to your sibling or your family's wedding and. I mean I. Don't know like I'm into. It wasn't if she's happy. I'm happy I don't care I. Just I'm interested at the at the trajectory of this couple. I. When Gd did ask our coverage to their grandmother shooter? In the Netherlands, they realized that it would be the one reference that was caught to two. They realized how referenced that event is. She had no idea I'll tell you. She even knew how reference the entire relationship would have been. I don't think she would have done in the first place. I think. She felt like it took a hint hit her credibility in a way. I know that may sound weird, and that's not any sort of shape towards tyler. I think he's a great, obviously very handsome guy, but I think the G G got caught up in this. World of Reality Television Star that she had wanted to have no part in You know what I mean. I almost feel like this one life. On a reality, TV? Yes well, you know what I'm saying like in his. Bachelor drama I think she was just like I'm a fucking supermodel. Where you don't mean to some extent to you. Yes, it does I I'll never get over the funeral. I think about it probably once a week once A. Believe that happened. Someone wrote in trump. I was thinking the same thing someone was like. Did you guys forget? The GD deed was pregnant Julie I fucking I fully forgot about it. I forgot about it for a second, because when those pictures of Sophie Turner came out and I was like Oh my God. This needs all of my attention one hundred percent of it. Yeah I completely agree with you I I kind of hit me. I'm like Oh my God. There's going to be a little big little baby. G G. Oh my God I can't wait. I can't wait I know.

We haven't talked about this in a while, but this was interesting and I feel like a lot of people may have missed it. Which is why we wanted to highlight it. So. Angelina Jolie did an interview with Vogue India. where she spoke about Brad and her children and her humanitarian work, we wanted to read a couple of the quotes, okay. The interviewer says you have three adopted children mattocks taxes, Ahora and three children by birth Shiloh Viviana inox. What are the most important things to consider when raising adopted in biological siblings? She says. Each is a beautiful way of becoming family. What is important to speak with openness about all that into share? Adoption and orphanage are positive wars in our home with my adopted children I can't speak of pregnancy, but I speak with much detail in love about the journey to find them and what it was like to look in their eyes for the first time. All adopted children come with beautiful mystery of a world that is meeting yours. When air from another race in foreign land that mystery. That gift is so full for them. They must never lose touch with where they came from. They have roussy. Do not honor them learn from them. It's the world's most amazing journey to share. They are not entering your world. You are entering each other's worlds. interviewer says Atherton separate from your partner in children's father actor Brad Pitt. How'd you sustained healthier environment for your children? She says I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision. I continued to focus on their healing, so taking advantage of my silence, and the children's see lies themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth in their on minds. In fact, there are six very brave strong young people. I. I love when we got an interview from Angelina. Not even like I'm sort of diehard Angelina, Fan! You know that that's not the case like I like her. Choosing its side. It's always team Jen Bradey. Though it's not really thing right now. I love hearing her. Speak I don't know what it is well I. Yes, because I I so agree with you because I feel like I, like all three parties involved in terms of Chen Brad and Angelina I. Don't feel like with winter discussing them. I have to choose JEN or Angelina. Would prefer Brad Right now get back with Jed. If I had to choose between the two of them, but I think Angelina on her own is such a powerful figure in such a powerful person that when you hear her speak it kind of stops you in your tracks. I completely agree, and also because I think it's the effect of. The the mystery of her. She's not on social media. We Mary rarely get this type of thing, and so when she speaks, it's just more interesting because of the frequency with which we get it I also think the line about when she was speaking about. You know having adopted children and biological children when she says. Regarding her doctor children, they are not entering your world. You are entering each other's worlds I think that is such a beautiful statement. Made too. Like I think she has made it a priority to honor. Their cultures and I! Don't know her personally obviously, but it just seems like she's a really good mom. Oh. Yeah, definitely I've always gotten that feeling from her. Always, she's very dedicated. She's very dedicated to her own kids and she's very dedicated to. Genuinely like the world and their kids, and whatever, because if you read the rest of the interview there so much humanitarian work that she does that, I think people sometimes forget about, but she's so knowledgeable, and so educates herself in does the work and goes to these places, and does what she can I think. It is incredibly admirable. I completely agree I really do. Also we quickly wanted to just mention was. TIKTOK because take. You guys since we left you last week, I don't even know what has been going on. Not only did Addison dye her hair black and is making heart. Take talks in Kardashians closet with her, and they're like new best friends. Noah. Beck is in Sway House. TIKTOK fans fucking like wreck. The trump rally Julie take his taking over the world. The trump rallies probably the craziest thing that's ever happened. Yet so anybody who is unaware, basically the way that trump's rally in Oklahoma worked was you had to reserve a ticket and it kind of express your interest. You didn't have that didn't mean that you have to pay for. It didn't have to say you were definitely coming, but it was kind of showed that you were planning on attending. Is that a fair way to put it yeah? and. Basically there was a thing that was going on talk which we all saw. If you're on, took you saw this on your for you page? But I didn't recognize. The extended were basically liberal teens on Tiktok were going on reserving their ticket, reserving their interest, and then not showing basically giving the trump campaign a false sense of inflated interest. which then they're expecting, you know the arena to be crowded with nineteen thousand people plus overflow from outside the end up getting sixty six hundred, and it was kind of like an online revolution that happened with not only Tiktok, but also with K, pop standards and a lot of people, a lot of articles I saw. Kind of explain it as like a very powerful form of political activism without any real harm. It was you know I have to say that. Watching them take the overflow area way because no one was, there was one of the greatest joys of my life. I have to on so funny because you know. We're watching this all unfold on twitter you know before we recognized any sort of TIKTOK K pop involvement. We're watching it. Unfold on twitter and you know they're starting to report that attendances way below what had been originally reported where trump was saying listen. We all know his capacity for over exaggeration, but we're trump saying that they had almost a million. Ticket request reserved, and that's why the need for the overflow area, and and you know. The arena was going to be filled and. Arena itself have not even half filled. The overflow area, not a single person. They had to take it away and I texted you and I said. You know do think that there's any chance that this has anything to do with Ted talk and we were all kind of like that was my original thought. Who, but there's just no way like it just seemed so illogical, and then you start to see like you know. Different people tweet about it and I saw EO see tweeted about it. You know in terms of TIKTOK. And then MSNBC was reporting your times reporting it and we were like. Oh. My God like this worked they. Worked he did this end. If you look at we, we posted a tweet from Chris Clements about. His reaction to it and I think healthy commented in said you know, clap if you did this, too. Because she had said she did it, and like four hundred people on just our you know. Post alone had said that they had done it. No it was the craziest thing that real it's like nobody wants to say it. Even just with our little group chat with even bone. Nobody wanted to mention like. Could this be because of Tiktok? Because at fear of sounding like a fucking idiot, honestly, and then when it starts to come out, and we're all like wait a second. You guys I don't think that's the craziest thought, and it was very almost like surreal of feeling like you're on the inside of a revolution, not because I personally didn't reserve tickets, but I watch. These kids do it for a week like I. Was Watching on my for you page these videos of these kids kind of conspiring unit as a joke almost and then when it actually took into action I was like wow, this is really powerful and I think I need to take a step back in like recognize the power here in addition to just like the humor that comes with it. You know were and. It's so funny that I've seen a lot of is parents on twitter saying that they went to tell their kids what happened and their kids were like. Yeah, of course I reserved a ticket already, and I think that was the first. You know I think that was the first one of the first candle. Examples of you know you may not be old enough to vote, but you're definitely not too young to make a difference It was huge I. Want to talk to my fourteen year old son. We live in London and he said that he had reserved tickets. Yeah No, absolutely not only the power of. Like everybody's individual power regardless of age, but also I felt like I certain parents. It was acknowledging the. Cultural and societal impact. The TIKTOK is having an you know that sounds stupid, but I think so many can kind of just shoot it off as like the stupid dances, my kids are doing which in a lot of cases it is, but also there's real power happening here you know. Oh and I say that all the time about Tiktok talk because you know. I think this is the first time we've seen it in action, but this is what I was saying you know. A couple weeks ago was that I've learned more from Tiktok than I had in twelve years public education I can't emphasize that enough because I think that it is such a powerful platform because there are so many layers to it. Yeah, you have relieved the funniest Shit I've ever seen. You have all these dances you have. A friend group drama that you're watching unfold like a reality show, and then you have genuine political activism from kids who know what they're talking about putting action into place, and it is all in one APP and to me. That's unbelievable. Give, you know it's interesting. Why if you look at what's been going on in terms of? The petitions being signed regarding black lives, matter and All of the resources that have been shared on Instagram, and how instagram in so many ways has become this hub for sharing information on has become one of the reasons that so many of these petitions have been able to get the signatures they needed or so many so much money has been able to be raised like we regard instagram as a social media tool with very legitimate resources for change. So why is just interesting that there's like this shock becomes with it when it's tiktok whereas we have thought of Instagram, is this for so long? But you know took. INSTAGRAM allowed gets that. Because we were looking. At and all of a sudden instagram started postings in Tokyo, really long time to understand instagram as a legitimate platform, and as a platform for businesses form to make a living off of and once we finally understood that Tiktok came an hour struggling to understand you know the power that Tiktok cast, and it continues to happen and I think that a lot of people have this assumption that when a new social media platform pops up, that puts the other one at risk of being obsolete and I. I don't think that's the case. I think that you know all the platforms that were working with have a very specific purpose, and especially during this time like to us. FACEBOOK is nothing but to adults that use facebook primarily as their sole source of social media, the reach that people have on facebook to share information and change political opinions, especially in that age group or influenced political opinions or educate political opinions is invaluable, because that's an age group that stop being reached through twitter Tiktok or instagram. Oh completely. I'm the biggest believer that all three. If we're talking instagram to talk to her all four instagram tiktok twitter facebook I I hate this competitive aspect that people try to associate with them I think they all are so brilliant in their own ways and I wouldn't want one to exist without the other because what I'm getting on twitter. I, simply not going. Get on Instagram or on tiktok insane. You know for all the others so I. my favorite is when they all work kind of in harmony with each other and I think that is the baffle adequate. Yes exactly exactly and I just the first one to say like no guys, which gives them all chance, but quickly just on a on a couple of little tiktok dramas that I wanna talk about because I just can't get enough I. Think Dragging Tony Lopez definitely fucking I know they have an They have explicitly said they say like to. Kita, they say. Say. You know best friends forever. They're clearly touch with each other. They're wearing each other's necklaces, but like I would like to go on record and say that I all their hot couple second of all. I think that it's like happening and I feel very lucky to witness this kind of exposure exploration of this romantic relationship so I'm here for that number one. also you know as soon including Kardashian is. Like it is fucking crazy a couple of months ago, she was just this. Take talker on there is now. She is very much in Corny. Her nations' inner circle in Courtney's bedroom, making take talks with Mason in courts closet, making talks with courtney like that's a big fucking deal and I think let's just take a moment. Take any jealousy aside. This girl did it. She did the damn thing she got to Gordon Kardashians causing. You want to know something I applaud her I. Applaud to in. This is what I said to you which? Which I think is actually the funniest thing is that I think of every single aspect of Mason disobeys life. Maybe maybe except for Connie, being is ongoing I. think that this is the area like the friendship with Addison. The proximity to Addison is the area of his life that his friends are probably the most Jolla south, and I'm not a new thing that I think that generally like if you were to take all of Mason's friends and be like if you could have one thing for Mason's like they would all say like. I would want to be in a room without a said. I literally think that's true. I think they're like Oh. Yeah, fuck him like. Like you. Came crashing being being his aunts probably in there in the eyes of like a ten thirteen year old friends seems relatively insignificant. But. Like oh my God like that. Is the base deal in the world? If you're a thirteen year old boy of your thirteen year old anything, Girl. That is the biggest person right now. Yeah. It's pretty. It's pretty remarkable. sperry interesting watching. Also I just wanted to say. For those of US messaging, yes, I saw that Noah back is at this White House. Yes, I am loving every second of it i. know last time we got some comment saying when we were talking about how Jaden Josh left and people were like well. You didn't mention the whole then getting arrested for pot in Texas in Bryce taking the fall because Josh could get deported, etc. I don't know too much about it because it's not like Josh. Come out and said that side of the story. Clearly, he's not gonNA Sort I'm looking for. He's not gonNA. Makers are. Incriminating. Thank you. I told you there. He's not gonNA incriminate himself. But. Yeah I definitely! I have so many thoughts in also I really prefer braces, hair ground instead of black, but whatever makes them happy and there was a couple of other things that I wanted to mention that I also a little bit afraid because I go on for for so long, and it's just it's really embarrassing. It really is I only get is what trend I really like right now? Which one! The with the three people where they all say one thing. I love the ones that do with their dogs out. Who Baby Herbie! That one right? Yeah, no I know I love it. I wanted to do with my dad, but I just know he'll get so disoriented and confused and we'd try for me. Yeah try for you. I feel like you know. Insect said we constantly were learning how to prevent pregnancy at all costs, and we had all the tools to prevent it when it comes to actually planning ahead for it was a total mystery, which is why it really is time for fertility education, and that's kind of why modern until you was created.

Travis buys a New House in Rhode Twenty three point, five million dollars, sixteen, thousand, seven hundred square feet. It's his on top of a hilltop. It has panoramic views of the entire city. It's seven bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, three floors very kind of contemporary very modern. It has a twenty car garage. There's the penthouse floor which has to junior master suites owner sweet with dual closets SPA style bath, expansive balcony I am. I just I can't handle this. How it's not necessarily something what I would want, but it is exactly what I would envision for Travis. There isn't a tire recreation and entertainment area. There's a gym sauna. Fifteen seat theater, a wet bar area with the temperature controlled six hundred fifty bottle wine closet, outdoor kitchen, poolside, Cabana dining decks. There's a seventy five foot. Foot Infinity, pool. Swimming Pool Game Room I. Mean I know I sound like I could be on million dollar listening right now because I was blown away by this property again not that I would want but God damn. This is Travis Scott motherfucking house. Is it not are Kylie Travis just try to buy every piece of cool real estate in Los Angeles. Nearly houses like at a turn point to start collecting them. Yeah I mean that's coming on it. I think you just start to really build your portfolio and he was not fucking around with this one. I feel like the thing that Travis Kylie are doing is. They feel so constricted because of travelling restrictions during krona that there were like. Let's take vacations at different places in La we'll you know? We'll go to. The house in Brentwood will go to the other house in Beverly Hills like. Just! Spread ally is by the way that's how much it like sucks getting around that like you go to each three of those different places and feel like you were in a completely different. Stay in every one of them. I. I swear to you and I know that those of you that living in La can attest to this in. It's not. It's really not a negative. Experience that I was totally unaware of before we started going to La like. I swear to God if I spend one day in like now and one day in West Hollywood I feel like I'm in shoot Lakers and I feel like I have to separate vacations like I it's. It's such an unfamiliar feeling in New York because there's nowhere in the city that you can't get you within twenty thirty minutes tops and the fact that these. These things like I. Remember, we'd go there for the first time people were like. Are you crazy? The you're going to have a meeting in like Venice, Meta meeting here, and we totally understand the layout, and it really is so true is so spread out. It is so fucking spread out so I. Think you're absolutely right. They're basically having two different experiences. By the way, it is a negative 'cause. You know how I feel about. La and I think. If you're saying you're offended by this cubeys, I know you're alive. Be Right now because everyone. Is. Poorly planned city in the entire world, who the fuck planned ally I I always say this. It was like they gave each person their own plot of land and they're like. Do whatever the fuck you want with it. You couldn't talk to. You couldn't plan like a general vibe for the whole city La is. Seven different cities in one. It's like you're not array. You're just all different areas. Stop calling yourself ally. You can't. Definitely Hill, then now go are the same thing they're not. I know I love it though I stopped because. The more you say, this, the more you're going to get you in is well. We're GONNA. Conspire together to make us go their lesson to make us not live there for three months and I wanted to happen, so you're? Less I just want people when they're making a city to be smarter about it. That's all I ask for you know. I go on forever. Like I literally like one of those topics that like people know not to get me started on and I have like so fucking. Many of those were they're like. Please don't bring up this around Julie to shut up. And ally is. I know I know I. Don't like to bring it up things again. I feel like it totally discredits my argument in terms of the beauty of being there, but I just think i. just think there's it's a unique place. It really is replaced I think that we need to spend more time there. evaluated it I absolutely love going to ally I absolutely love a thousand million times more living in New York City. Also though the other thing is that we are lucky, because it's not like we're the ones driving or they're you know what I mean? We don't rent a car, so it's a lot less stressful for us to be. Either with my dad, or to be an uber to be the ones physically driving I think I'd have much more of a problem with. Is the one that has to be on these highways? You know absolutely absolutely. Okay also. A clip from keeping up with Rhodesian came out where it came as talking to Scott About Tristen, and she's like he's honestly so nice and Scott agrees and he's like he made mistakes, but I feel like he's trying really hard can go trying really really hard. It's an a full year of him. As a different person and Scott goes to be in that place, everybody in the family that he just had a kid with hates him would be a horrible feeling, no matter what he's still within the family, which unsurprising because we've seen Kim really warm up to him I. think in recent episodes are also on social media yeah. So I am. I am fully prepared for when crashes comes back for there to be this like. Of tristen and again like if they are happy in Khloe as happy, we're happy. We're obviously not going to be the ones to be like no fuck him. Don't let him in. They're happy. Whatever but I'm I'm not as trusting I. Guess is all. DA, they're they're gearing us to get that. They're getting back together. There's that's what's happening here, but you know what. Lesson I'd be lying if I said that this was gonna be any sort of detriment to me, watching keeping up the Herash INS or rooting for Clo-. You're paying attention like listen. I'm prepared to get hurt again. That's all. You have to be when you follow this family. Better be prepared to get her, you know. Absolutely. I also would like to say I'm just going to say okay. For father's Day everybody I thought everybody in the family handled it really respectfully, really well, there were out to all of the Fathers Caitlyn Rob Tristan. Everyone and I want to focus on is accordion. Scott, not only was there a picture of her wearing his flannel, which someone specifically Santos being like I need to make sure you saw this. We saw it. I guys call me crazy I. don't care, I am feeling in my blood. They something is brewing something that brewing when she posted like grateful for. Three and our children not just like grateful for our family. I don't know I'm not looking I. Don't think I'm looking too much into things. I think that I'm telling you this feeling that I have I'm prepared to disappointed. I think something could be happening. You guys I really feel that way I think a lot of feel that way. How do you feel? I don't know to I. Think it's too soon to to say something. Would you be shocked? No not at all. I wouldn't be shocked by any means, but I I think that it's too soon. To say you know something's happening or they're back together that that flannel means you know more than what it does or that that instagram post about him being a good father, wishing happy father's Arabic grateful for him means more than it says I'm not willing to go that far you. Know. You're and I WANNA be clear. I'm not judging it based on the instagram posts based on the flannel. Those things just helped my argument, but I don't think I think she would have posted for Scott regardless he is the father to her children. I'm just saying those definitely helped my growing fantasy of them getting back together, which as the days go on I think is becoming less fancy and more of a potential reality, so to any of you were like me I. Just want you to know I'm not losing hope and I will keep the hope for all of us so anytime. You feeling defeated. Just know that I- somewhere in this world am ready for them. Kay. Perfect, way of saying. I also want to tell everyone. that. Courtney know that. Sorry, are you? No No, not I I can. Bauer throw no no I I heard a noise downstairs, and I just panicked my dad's finding. On Edge you guys I'm Ed I really fucking went through it. You've no idea I was literally convulsing when he was having heart palpitations, but anyway I'm fine. I want say to other things. Number one came is dropping a podcast. She's an exclusive deal. spotify for podcast coming out about criminal justice in her work. I cannot wait for this. The fact that every one of them doesn't have a podcast is an outraged quite frankly, no. I, so agree I so agree. I'm really excited for this awesome excited, because I think in an effort to share her story more and hopefully, not her story, but the stories of the people that she's advocating for, and hopefully she'll she'll bring some of those people on you know. PODCASTING is great because of people that. Don't want to watch a video or feel like they don't have. The time can do podcasting doing other things. Hopefully it will get that message across even more. which I think is really great thing you know if you could pick any two of them and there's a right answer to this question by the way. Don't think that this is like an open ended. There's a right answer if you could pick any two of them to do a podcast together, who would you pick and who would it be? Oh Shit. Kevin Kiley now it's chloe and Scott. Oh well for for like to fuck around, yeah! Answer part of that whole family who would be the most? Like the best podcast together, who out of them should have a podcast, it should be chloe and Scott. Yeah No, I agree with that. I totally agree with that I guess I'm saying like if depending on the content like it depending on what I'm going for like, if Kim and Kris wants to business one I'd be there all day of the week you know. Yeah, but like we're. I know us very well like we'd love to say that. We'd be there every day of the week like we would be. They're much more for chloe in Scott. fucking around then crested Kim tried you know? Explained business to us. In our own. I know wrong. I never asked. I never have. I also wanted to mention that Kendall and Kylie are dropping their collection for Kylie cosmetics. You know what the fuck of course this was happening like. Why did we did to take around? Like almost surprised, it took so long, you know. Is this the first. There's no way this is the first they've done. With Kylie cosmetics. Yeah, that's so crazy. I know. Isn't it crazy? Out The shoe in. The shoe is insane insane I now. Is this the kind of thing where like I wonder what it's like to be again? Never someone that's like Oh my God. I'm going to buy it I'm just not buying it, but. I am excited for the people that I know are going to buy it in. That are going to talk about it. 'cause I wanNA know what it's like, but I'm just not going to be the one to actually buy it. Because I just wouldn't use it by. Like I'm excited for the vicarious excitement. That I'm GonNa feel when certain people in our age young group posted and talk about it, yes. Is there anything else you wanted to talk about Kardashian Tek otherwise? I gotta say I think. We covered a whole lot this episode. What happened like literally what happened? I'm telling you truly. I feel like I've been in an era. I know just. Things will be back to normal on Thursday I apologize. You're great I'm talking myself you're. We all have our days, Rachel. You didn't say anything. No one would know. You think I don't know. One hundred percent better now. Okay well I love you guys so so so much, and we will see on Thursday I'm really excited. It's an amazing kardashian behalf which we haven't done yet, but we're going to watch it tonight. and. Vice doses on much.

Today we're covering the arrest of Malcolm come XS daughter Kabila Shabazz who allegedly planned to murder nation of Islam. Leader Louis Farrakhan. Let's go back to the morning of January Twelfth Nineteen Ninety Five January very in Minneapolis was cold even inside Kabila Shabas cozy little apartment. The walls didn't block out the chill nor or the radiator. It was a harsh pure cold untempered by the million watts of electricity. That lit up the New York winters could Bela was used. Used to but Kabila didn't like to think back on New York too much. It sent her down a dangerous path reminding her of her last few years there. You're the drinking and the odd jobs and the constant reliance on her mother. She hadn't been able to care for her son not well and and the poor kids suffered for it. The past few years warrant the worst though the worst was when she thought back further when suddenly she was was a little kid again four years old watching her dad fall to the ground at the Harlem Ballroom. His body riddled with bullets. Malcolm X. that monolith the man who barely got to raise her things were better now in Minneapolis. Despite the cold she'd been there since September far away from all that history and she had fitzpatrick to rely on on good old Michael Fitzpatrick she'd known him since High School. But who would have thought they'd end up here. Lovers her little boy calling calling him dad he was a good man or seemed like it. At least things had turned strange lately. There was the episode about the eviction. Kabila lost touch with fitzpatrick briefly when his roommates told her they kicked him out. There was the instance where he asked her for money. Two hundred fifty dollars but Kabila had led enough things in her life strangled in the cords of mistrust crossed. She was exhausted of it sometimes. Her mother's voice echoed even through these distant streets carried on the back of the piercing wind. The words she'd said on W. NBC. TV's News Forum earlier this year. especially the a question had been whether or not Dr Betty Shabazz thought. Louis Farrakhan played a part in her husband's nineteen sixty five assassination the same assassination four-year-old Kabila had witnessed Dr Shabazz response. Her mother's response had been the same one on Kabila had heard around the house for decades. Of course yes. Nobody kept it a secret. It was a badge of honor. Everybody everybody talked about it. That pain that betrayal colored Cabela's whole life. Her father had been Farrakhan's mentor Tor- then they became enemies to see care. Turn to hate turned to blood. It sent a clear message. Love is dangerous but Kabila chose Fitzpatrick anyway chose to accept. His love chose to love him madly to trust him. That was a mistake. It was still early on the morning of January twelfth health. When the police came for her she was? They said a would be assassin looking for her father's revenge and it was all on Fitzpatrick's word coming up we'll hear about the case against Kabila and the unlikely coalition that came came to her defense now back to the story thirty four year old Kabila Shabazz was arrested on the morning of January Twelfth Wolf Nineteen ninety-five she was charged with conspiring. To murder. Louis Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam. According to Kabila's Kabila's mother Dr Betty Shabazz Farrakhan was a key figure in the assassination of Kabila's father civil rights activist Malcolm x the two had previously been allies Malcolm X. is widely regarded as an early mentor for Farrakhan but differing approaches to the nineteen sixties. Steve Fight for civil rights eventually drove the men apart. Dr Shabazz wasn't the only one to think this rift lead Farrakhan to play a role role in Malcolm XS murder though he was never charged Kabila Shabazz also held this belief which caused does the government and Kabila's lover Michael Fitzpatrick to assigned her alleged crime. A motive revenge prosecutors secures claimed that in May of nineteen ninety four could be reached out to fitzpatrick and asked him to kill Louis Farrakhan. She was allegedly allegedly afraid. That after her mother publicly claimed Farrakhan was responsible for her father's death Farrakhan would come for Dr Shabazz too. Two little did she know Fitzpatrick was an FBI informant. He immediately apprised the FBI. I of her request and then at their behest strung her along and discussed the idea with her further his love for her their relationship was all just a cover. He was paid forty five thousand dollars for his trouble and now thanks to his betrayal Kabila faced ninety years in prison and a fine of up to two point. Two five million dollars colors about three point. Eight million in two thousand Nineteen Kabila signed with the F. B. I.. Considered a confession. She admitted that she and Fitzpatrick had a plan to kill Farrakhan and the plot was her idea but that was before she knew it was fitzpatrick who sold her out to the feds. Once she learned of his betrayal she qualified the confession. She claimed that she the only accepted responsibility for the assassination plot because she thought Fitzpatrick was in trouble with the FBI and she loved him. She do whatever she could to help. Protect him even if that meant taking responsibility for a crime she never meant to commit really. She'd only suggested Fitzpatrick Kill Farrakhan as a joke then Fitzpatrick had pushed her to make the joke a reality. Despite her own reluctance she never truly intended to be. Part of an assassination for Farrakhan or otherwise her lawyer Scott Scott Tilson leaned into this version of events. He argued that could be. Low was set up by Fitzpatrick and emphasized that she was an easy see defenseless target. She was still scarred by the loss of her father and afraid for her mother to this was a vulnerable woman. Tilson insisted the FBI through Fitzpatrick and his alluring promises of love took advantage of Kabila's pain using it to turn her into criminal in a remarkable turn of events could bilas defense found support. In the unlikeliest of people Louis Farrakhan when he found out it was Kabila Shabas who was charged with an assassination attempt on his life. He spoke out on her behalf claiming that he did not think she was guilty. He hoped she would not be convicted. It's it's hard to say what his motivations are. Perhaps he simply saw injustice said play in Cabela's manipulation by the FBI or perhaps he he wanted to mend his rift with the Shabazz family. But regardless he even banded together with Dr Shabhaz to raise money for Kabila's is legal fees. They shook hands on the stage. Of New York's Apollo Theater in front of a packed room on May say I need one thousand nine hundred ninety five five months after Kabila's arrest prosecutors agreed to drop all charges as long as several several conditions were met could be would undergo psychiatric and addiction treatment and she would accept responsibility for her plot to kill Farrakhan. She accepted the conditions and went on to meet them. Perhaps finally helping close the book on a tragic tragic chapter for her family without bloodshed. Thanks for listening today in true crime.

Welcome to call your girlfriend podcast for long distance besties everywhere. I'm I mean, not too. So and I'm an Friedman. I think it's worth like in talking about this specific headline women's March roiled by acusations of antisemitism. Talking about some historical context for the women's March. And like what has really roiled it since day one. We did a research dive for this episode. Sanou? We. How learn an Friedman I high happy twenty nineteen again, always. But if I just say that every podcast of the entire year. I would enjoy it. I love being reminded what year were in. So I stopped signing things 2017. Thank you. I do think it is important in January to be constantly vigilant of what year it is. Okay. I feel we should get right into it. Because we have so much to talk about this week. Tell me what are we talking about this week? Well, I am going to explain this listener Email we received it started with a link to a New York Times article the headline of which is women's March roiled by acusations of anti semitism, and the listener rates. This situation is heartbreaking to me. It's the pit ame- of divide and conquer I believe that both sides believe strongly in their truth. But I also believe that we must find a way to live with our differences and unite to fight the bigger challenges before us, the two of you have a platform and the skills to start to reverse the vicious cycle. I don't blame you for wanting to avoid it. But the stakes are just too high. Hi, I have so many feeling. So like full body chills. Feelings one use my platform for snacks, like less ghetto, right snacks and luxury skin care. So my job is not as self problems. Are you reacting to that word void because I had a real reaction to that? I'm reacting to avoid, but the other thing that is I think I'm also having a very strong reaction to is that I just firmly believe that if you're above the age of thirteen if you hear yourself saying booth sides, you should take a deep breath and whatever comes afterwards like never good. So okay. I just want to suggest for the sake of staying on track that we come back to this listening. Because I definitely go off the deep end with the many things this makes me feel, but I want to wait for one second because we definitely have talked about drama within the women's March organizing different things that are going on with regards to like race and class and politics at play with like who is showing up to March, and what do the organizing what does the organizing look like. And does it represent feminism capital F and cannot can feminism even be represented by like a concrete group of people. We have talked about many of these things over the past two years. But I think it's worth like in talking about this specific headline roiled by acusations of anti-semitism talking about some historical context for the women's March. And like what has really roiled it since day one. We did research for this episode. We we did a lot of research. You're my favorite investigative reporter. And I'm so happy. We're gonna talk about this. I mean, I use all of my like Kardashian recap skills to bear for the women's March for you. Right. So let's get grounded in some like just facts about the women's March the women's March happened on the heels of some would say, the the most controversial election we've ever had the truth of the women's March that one percent of the entire population of the US participated. It's the largest single day protest in this country's history. So that's not nothing. Huge. I don't like the word drama, but for for the purposes of this I'm gonna use drama because it is very Kardashian like feeling the first bit of drama that there was with the women's March was that there was a sense of like the women's March was like very white centred, and that it mostly catered to issues that were important to white women. And this is fully when we did not know who was organizing the women's March. It was like you just kept being invited. On Facebook to March that kept swelling. And it was unclear who was the leader of right? Like splinter groups from pantsuit nation like if you are not deep in the Facebook a specific corner, Facebook, you're like what is going on? And so this is happening people are like who is organizing women's March. And then that is when the names to me Kamala Carmen Perez, Linda, Sarsour, all pop up, and so these women are brought in to be the co chairs of the women's March. You've probably heard some names, you probably have not heard any. I would say that probably Linda Sarsour as the name that most people who are in this corner of internet have heard because Linda is very known for curse support of the movement to boycott Israel. She is she has a Palestinian American, and she is a very visible Muslim woman. Right. And I think like it's worth noting that there were definitely what I felt were really. Good conversations around like who does this movement center who is getting to be like held up as the leadership, and who is like doing the unsexy work to plan this March like these are questions that came up vis-a-vis like historic issues of race in privilege within feminism those conversations were had at the member of the name, even how to change exact the name had to change because the original name. You're right had been the million women March after the March on Washington for jobs and freedom, which was like a historical civil rights rally on the mall MLK deliver the like, I have a dream speech. So they went through different integrations of the name until they settled on the women's March TM never used before. But even the real shocker, I gotta say, well, you know, you've got to be specific about March. That's the listen we're about to get into the drama this thing. But you know, I think you're right. Those conversations were really important. To have because historically in moments like these like white women have just come into to reinvent the wheel or to purport that I that sexism is new it was a new feeling and after the election. It was a place where I would say like as a woman of color. I was very tender where people are like oh my God. Can you believe how trash the country is? And I'm like, welcome to the party young. And you're like, can you believe? Here. Like, I didn't find out America was racist. When Hillary Clinton lost the election showed? I mean, but a lot of people did I guess all of this stuff. I feel like was what was underpinning the conversation about who was leading the women's March. What it was called what issues it was centering like that is a conversation that was part of the earliest days of, and it was really important to have like I think that everybody should have a healthy level of skepticism. When you get an invitation from somebody that you don't know to something that is that supposedly includes you, I think about as fair. So as we co chairs are installed the thing. The bus starts driving itself. The next issue rather driving the bus a lot of other help, you know. And so the March happens the March, I hear was lit. I personally did not go. Well, I did go. I'm gonna talk more about this a little later in this episode. But like, yes, I was there. Like people made Memphis owed about it. We people I heard it. There were like, very you talk to these very cute young women, even somebody who did not go for a fleeting moment. I was like this feels great even the my third is wide open right after the March the women's March drafts what they call their unity principles. It's the read me the about page the women's much for the tech lady. And I think like also designed to answer this question of like, okay. The March is over what? Now, like what about in like, that's how I at least read these unity principles as a statement of wears this organization, if it's an organization, whereas it going, right? And that's how they're meant to be read. And so the planks were all good, but one of them like definitely, raise some eyebrows. I will read it. It said we believe that women's rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights. You might have heard that one before we must create a society in which women, including black women native women. Poor women immigrant women disabled. A women Muslim women, lesbian queer and trans women are free and able to care and nurture for their families. However there formed in safe and healthy environments free from structural impediments. That sounds great to me, generally. But a thing also happens when you start listing out a soup of identity their identities that you do not cover some very obvious and some not very obvious, and Jewish feminists flagged very early on that that list of people who were upheld as the society of women that we were creating did not include Jewish feminists. This I think is important because historically in the United States Jewish feminists have been at the forefront of the progressive movement. And so it's not like a group of women just decided like, hey, how come women from which it which is art like included in the plan was like women who historically have been feminists. Organizers and women who have been a part of the women. Smart from the beginning because you have to remember that they're like co-chairs, but they're also like a lot of people who are working behind the scenes like it's not like seven co chairs, or however, many coaches, they have is not what organizers the women's March. It is a coalition of people. And here was a group of women who felt that there were not named in the plan. And I think it was for me. Anyway, I read some of that descent saying, hey, Jewish women are vulnerable in this particular way, in this particular moment to agreed that is very true and fair the next point of interest is so the Rama just say it the next the next drama that emerges as the women's March happened in January the unity plan happens like January and then in March, you know, as International Women's Day. And so marched twenty seventeen. I guess we remember that was also called the day without a woman strike like year. There were hashtag, and we're supposed to walk out of work like that whole thing and the women's March for the strike for the day without women's. Like included a plank on an anti racist and anti imperialist feminism. So the plank started with the words against the open white supremacy in the current government and the far, right and anti-semites. They have given confidence to you. We stand for an uncompromising anti-racist and anti-colonialism feminism than that same plank ends with these words Justice for Palestine are for us, the beating heart of this new feminist movement. So some of us are just like all of this sounds great. And some of us are like eyebrow. Raise like, what is going on here, this prompts on op Ed by Emily Shire, called does feminism have room for Zionists? If you don't know what Zion Zionism is probably going to have to look up to keep up with this conversation. Them. Listen Zionism is a political belief that some people have the state of Israel has a right to exist. It sounds very duh aficionado magazine to some of us and to others of us. It literally a challenge. So you can decide for yourself where you fall on that. But like Google Zionism anyway. So this question that Emily Shire prosise feminism have room for is actually very salient question because the plank implies that if opposition to Israel. So if positions Israel is a core plank of being feminist, or at least being the women's March feminist win. It's true though. It's like where do Jews fit in? And I think that that is very that is very valid question and Tarkwa valid because Justice for Palestine was not like defined in depth of what does Justice look like, let's talk about core activists questions all the time Justice. What does what does this look like? And also like to be clear if you read the. Plank at like, it calls out anti-semites anti-semites that are the government has given confidence through and so there's nuance here. Right. And it's why it's why the devil is in the details. But so anyway, Emily Shire writes, this up ad feminism have room for last, and Linda Sarsour, we mentioned earlier response in the nation and says you either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none. There's just no way around it. And so this sets up like clearly the showdown here. Right. And the showdown is truly that Linda's comment implies that you are either Zionist or a feminist and because she's part of the small organizing committee. It implies that that is the view of the women's March. And that is what Justice for Palestine means in that language in the plank. One hundred percent, and I will say to that something that is really fascinating about the drama. So far is that even though everybody is using their words in like print or writing or whatever there is still so many questions. Like the word Justice. What does it mean to all of where you know? Like, what does it mean to stand up for the rights of all women, we agreed on that? And also like why can't you be Zionists? And or why why are they like I don't think that anybody has like convincingly explained that yet? So anyway, the drama Hopkins the controversy, we're moving on we're now in August twenty seventeen which if you remember when Charlottesville happened and Charlottesville was like, very I would say like very devastating to the psyche of a lot of people for various reasons like it was explicitly titled like nutsy lead March on Charlottesville, and so the women's March like a lot of organization responded and criticize the actions of the the cannot believe we have Nazis every time I seen any torture Nazis. Yeah. The pier. One Nazis, but they're still Nazis. Like, I'm just like permit. Theisen diet like give man fire for do this nonsense. But here we are anywhere. And so the women's March like everybody else like responds. They had these nine Instagram posts doing calms around what happened and a lot of Jewish women flags that the insert messaging did not center Jewish people. Which again, if you remember? You know, a Nazi led March. Like, usually the conclusion is like who are they coming for I coming for juice. I and also if you remember the original plank and the list of all the different intersecting identities with being a woman like the fact that they that like many Jewish women noted that Jewish was not included in that list. It's like you can really understand why some people are looking for who want to see themselves reflected in a statement after an explicitly white supremacist and anti semitic March. Like, right. It makes sense that people are reading reading closely what women's marches and this woman Heather higher died. Also who was a very shoes. A wonderful human who had just done so much anti-racist activism in her life. A lot of the conversation. I think around Charlottesville did also become a conversation about anti black racism, and the truth is this is that anti-semitism is also a form of racism. I would say that it is one of the most like basic forms of racism that we have Cuban call the prejudice. Whatever you want. It is experience in in a way that is very specifically tailored to your identity. So when you put this conversation, even about Charlottesville like in the backdrop of Jewish women feeling like they have been erase and also that their fear and their concern is not taken seriously by people that are supposed to be on the team on none of the surprises you so like Charlottesville happens like there. We are. Now, this is where the real classic internet drama hobbits. Well, we're not in classic internet drawer in full. Mrs this is where classic internet drama. Territory like lives, then like all of this is like past and people start dredging up photos of the some of the women's March organizers palling around with Louis Farrakhan, and the nation of Islam a lot of the photos from a twenty fifteen event so recent. So this is where I'm saying that it's classic internet drama. It's like you start looking you let go into the archive like you can't hit them with what you have. Currently. You know, there's something bad in the past. This is why personally auto delete. All my tweets. I have a tool that does this cannot play a player, but also I will say about this tactic. If you feel that like someone is a racing you or discounting your point of view, it's like often the receipts are they're not just. I'm not surprised that something was found. But nobody is surprised here. But it's like I wanna qualify that. Like the pictures were not recent. We're I save out because I think that like not in this specific case, but I do think that people should be given an opportunity to explain themselves like you can't make conclusions from an Instagram post or from. I don't know from like a tweet from five years ago. All the times, you're right. But I think that like you gotta give people transfer explain themselves. Yeah. I understand the impulse to dig. And I also think that like in some ways it's fair, even if it's kind of old to ask for a conversation when you find something that is like further, furthering, whatever hurt you were feeling I agree with you. I think that like an also like we'll probably get into this later. I also the reason that I bring that up is that it is often tactic that right wing people use on on people that they're trying to discredit for me. The question is who wants a conversation. Exactly. But the thing that happens is the pictures come up and very prominent Jewish women do ask for conversation. And this this is on Twitter they ask for the women's March. Organizers to explain the context of these photos and also in finding the photos people, obviously find the specific event that it's at and the remarks that Louis Farrakhan has made now we're gonna pas if you don't know who is far Khanna's welcome to being a normal regular, listen. Nobody gives a shit about Louis Farrakhan. Like, you probably sitting at home have more influence than him in the world. But Louis cut is is the leader of the nation of Islam, which is a growth that like over the civil rights movement has been very prominent for like very specific salient reasons and over the years has also would say like they're not invoke and part of it as Louis Oregon is a hate monger, like he has said explicitly antisemitic things he said like explicitly transphobic, things you said explicitly sexist things, but it's also true that he was an important person in this all rights movement like two things can be true at the same time. And this is not a group like I would say that like in the black community today, the nation of Islam, it is not culturally relevant, but I would say that is emotionally relevance. Component of what it means to be a black activist Adam Serwer, the Atlantic written fully the definitive take on. Why you? Should know why the nation of Islam is important to black people and will link to it in the show notes. Okay. And this brings us up to the background that is relevant to the drama or division that are making headlines today. So let's take a break. And then we will talk about that. Has anyone else out there been waiting for show about being in your early twenties? That's actually like being in your early twenties.

So this brings us up to December twenty eighteen to clarify, so tablet magazine, which is an online daily magazine of Jewish news, ideas, and culture publishes an article about antisemitism within the women's March. I think would you say that's like a fair like top line on this long article, including some statements from an organizer named Vanessa ruble, this tablet, magazine article headlined is the women's March melting down, but at its core featured some charges of antisemitism. Among the small organizing group, particularly the people who were there at the very very beginning. Planning the twenty seventeen March and it mostly relies on woman named Vanessa ruble. As a source who says that at one of the early planning meetings to co-chairs to make a Mallory in Carmen Perez, quote, asserted that Jewish people bore special collective responsibility as exploiters of black. And Brown people the tablet article says that six of the seven women present at that meeting did not talk to them about it. So the source for this is Vanessa ruble, people who were present agreed that whiteness was discussed and like white women's role, historically as exploiters of black and Brown people was discussed, but I think what is disputed by people who were in the room is whether it was specifically singling out Jewish women. So this article opened up a larger conversation about antisemitism and the women's March about Louis Farrakhan, and the relationship of some of the women's March organizers to him there was a New York Times article as well, which is the one that the listener originally sent us, but it is touching on a lot of these things that have kind of come up continually over the past two years of the women's March existence, which is to say acknowledging antisemitism, acknowledging vulnerabilities of Jewish women. But also the. Whiteness, the tendency to center issues of particular importance to white women, whether this movement is like really inclusive for everyone and how it's like it's really kind of dredged up a lot of things even though a lot of the specific examples, we just talked about are not being included in the conversation. That's happening in this moment since December. So, you know, people who are in positions of leadership at the women's March. Now, the communications director Cassidy Fenway said that quote, she is concerned about the tablet article because she quote, I want Jewish women to feel welcome like, we are fighting for them because we are one thing that is happening is a lot of discussion about Louis Farrakhan. In the far con- photos being dredged up. It was also uncovered that the nation of Islam provided security for the women's much which a lot of people felt now meant that they had a business relationship with the nation of Islam and the nation of Islam was like embroiled in the inner workings of the women's March. And so to make a Maori who is one of the co chairs of the women's March clarified to the New York Times that the nation of Islam was not hired for security. That's a direct quote from her an internal document obtained by the time. So that the women's March group does not ask the religious affiliations of contractors but said that because private security firms a large number of nation of Islam members. It is likely that some members of the sect have provided security for women's March of this is hilarious to anybody. Who knows like the dress of a man in the nation of Islam? They're like always wearing like impeccable clothes and bowtie. And I was like if somebody from nation of Islam guard. You know? There is strong aesthetic a very strong like sixties freedom ascetic the truth of the matter is like Louis Farrakhan means something different to you possibly depending on your race or like your orientational to the civil rights movement or like your perspective on like what he does or his history that is positive in the world. In addition to the absolutely indefensible anti semitic. Remarks sexist remarks things like that and our Powell Adam Serwer wrote a piece last year in the Atlantic explaining what the nation of Islam means to some people not to others, and he wrote most people outside the black community come into contact with the nation of Islam this way, far con- makes anti semitic remarks, which generate press coverage and then demands for condemnation, but many black people come into contact with the nation of Islam as a force in impoverished black communities, not simply as a champion of the black poor or working class. But of the black underclass. Black people, especially men who have been written off or abandoned by white society. All that is not to say, hey, Louis, Farrakhan, great guy. No big deal. But it is to say that he and like what it signals to align yourself with him has become related to this conversation about charges of anti semitic. Comments in the earliest days of organizing for the women's March, a private conversation that is like not recorded that not everyone is on the record talking about either. And and also like is another vector for having this long simmering debate about like both the validity and like the real threat and real scourge that is anti semitism in addition to the real threat and real problem in real scourge of anti-black racism, and I think another vector of this conversation too. Is that I have heard like both in private and like seen on Twitter. I have seen so many Jewish. Women chafe. The fact that they are they're lumped into the the white supremacist coalition of white people. It is like a really interesting and painful conversation to have friend of the podcast caller Meyerson wrote actually wonderful Twitter thread about this. I think should be required. Reading for a lot of people. And she makes so many good points in like, namely that like Jews are an incredibly unique group in America does. Yeah. Yeah. White Jews are an incredibly unique group in America. They benefit from systemic white supremacy and are the targets of individual white supremacist thought is like a distinction that I think is lost on a lot of people who are not Jewish in Collier goes on to share like examples of her life Collier herself as Jewish, but she is not white. She is married to someone who is Jewish end white. And so they both experience their race and their religion and their Jewish identity and completely incompletely. Different ways. And and this also this idea of like who is white one is such a scam. There was a historical context in which like Jewish people are not white like for a longtime Jews were not white in America. And this process of becoming white a thing that has happened to a lot of effigies like people from the Balkans people from name name European countries that like historically have people have had prejudices about right? And I think that like for Jews it takes on a very different shape because you cannot separate like Jews from the Jewish religion. You cannot separate them from Israel, and you cannot separate them from anti-semitism no matter how identify in their Judaism and in their Jewishness. And so and you see the so much in activist conversations where people like there's a lot of pain. The truth is that like oppression is painful and fear is very painful and feeling targeted is like that's terrorism is incredible. Painful, and a lot of these conversations come from places like very palpable pain. But there is also the the fact that like a lot of things can be true at the same time. It can be true that the women's March leaders should be more forceful about condemning anti-semitism like it is true that block people can be more forceful about condemning anti-semitism like that is a reality of life in America and in the world, but it is also true, I will speak for myself. At least only I know that I have felt a lot of pain hearing, white Jewish woman talk about anti-semitism as it's the only form of racism is out there or that. What I did. I don't believe in oppression Olympics. I was like nobody is trying to meddle here. But I also I also understand how like how your identity like intersex. So personally with the kind of targeting that you feel you know, and but the truth I'm like who like who makes all these rules, the white man and the white. Man wins and everybody gets to fight for the scraps. Right. And so just thinking about how like so many people are right in this conversation like Jewish feminists are right? And so many people are wrong. The women's March response has been wrong in a lot of ways. And sometimes like that's just like you have to contend with. Yeah. I'm interested in going back to that listener Email that we've read at the beginning, and like reading it again and talking about it in the context of all of this. I'm just going to read read this again, this situation is heartbreaking to me. It's the pit ame- of divide and conquer I believe that both sides believe strongly in their truth. But I also believe that we must find a way to live with our differences and unite to fight the bigger challenges before us, the two of you have a platform in the skills to start to reverse the vicious cycle. I don't blame you for wanting to avoid it. But the stakes are just too high full-body hives. I really feel like one thing that is important contextual for this Email is that a lot of coverage of this particular moment this stuff about the allegations of antisemitism in the earliest planning days like things that were said in person. And then also the things about March leadership associated with Louis Farrakhan. Like that's kind of how the current like air quote divisions or differences or being categorized. A lot of that coverage is on right wing media. Like when we were kind of doing some like, okay? Like, let's find some things that we know we wanna reference I had to like skip around one million daily caller, who's keeping the receipts of like when the women are fighting each other. Rubbing their hands together. Like, Mr. burns. They're delighted in this. That's funny. I was going to say Birdman so racial divide racial aids. Real what Louis mister burns both kidding. Kidding get shoes from the buffet of analogy. Whatever is more. Simpson's lives matter. God don't even yellow lives matter. I can't. But like, you know, so anyway, so so I just want to say that I think some of the desire to say things like, let's unite and fight the bigger challenges like come from this desire to not air, our dirty laundry or like fight who's really the problem here, which is like this horrible presidency or something like that. And if you've been paying any attention what we've been talking about all this stuff. We're talking about literally, the deepest and most painful divisions, and like scourges that exist, in modern, culture and society. It's like you're talking about endemic racism, and we are talking about like differences in privilege that are really hard to separate out. And we are talking about what happens in organizing context when you're trying to like write one platform to speak for like literally millions of people like all of these are things that are not getting solved by the women's March are not getting solved like this week. Not even this lifetime. Maybe maybe definitely. Percents being optimistic and like just just trying to be a good ancestor and like to address it. And also the other thing about this getting an Email this to is just part of why these kinds of emails like worry me these like, oh, we should be United and we should fight. And we shouldn't fight each other. As I was like, this is such an Astorg position to how you know, the history of any progress that we've had as the people has included like, very serious infighting part of the reason that we know that Louis Farrakhan's a piece of shit because the fighting in the civil rights movement naming it's really important. I think and forget that for one minute to do think that there is also just as idea that like all women have to get along all the time, and we have to get along. Even when we are trying to literally dismantle systems of hate. Like, are you kidding? Me we're we're gladiators arena here. Like, nobody is going to be nice to you only total dummies agree. One hundred percent of the time on how to take down such a complex system of injustice. Like, are you serious like you're talking to people who are carrying like hundreds of years of trauma and pain and also just like cycle, log, the psychological warfare every or feeling like your government is out to get you. And that you can't trust anybody anymore. Like, we are fighting for our lives everyday. And idea that you're supposed to be polite lady when we are trying to do the work of freedom just swallow it. Yeah. It's well, but also like Rita fucking book man, like women have been fighting forever. And like so Rebecca traced her is like good. And Matt actually does a really great job about this the book of about the historical importance of anger, but a lot of that is talking about the infighting and women's movement. So when I think about going back to like who went to the women's March, and who who's off they knew what the women's March was or whatever I was like. If you went to the women's March because you thought that it was going to be fun. And that you were going to have a good time. You were literally the biggest dummy ever going into like an arena of activism is to go to a place of conflicts like you were going to the mat every single time. And it's normal to fight like dessert enough as good you should be worried. If you find like hundreds of thousands of people who have all agreed on the fact that there's one way to dismantle hatred. And we haven't done it yet. I was like you should probably be worried about that. I think a lot also about the second way feminists that everybody loves to shit on those ladies, I got a lot done. But those cried all the time they were slow so angry at each other were so angry. And also, it's okay to be angry at each other. It is very hard to look at people who you believe or on your side and understand still the world affects you in different ways. It's incredibly painful, and I'm not saying this from a pool. Of like being a person who is like, I don't know like say more marginalized than other friends that I have. I was like no like this is hard for everybody. And the thing that always fascinates me. Is that there are women who can understand this in relation to men, for example, where they're like, oh like we're just trying to get free here. How come the men are oppressing us? But they don't understand that that same dynamic possible. When the men are not there that it's actually not about gender, and it's not just about class. And it's not like it's about power. And it's about like who has it and who doesn't have it. And and feeling that you can trust the people who are around your feeling that you're seeing every single time that people see you for who you are.

I feel like we've had internet feminists fights that were like there was way more fire them all and we also provide the women's March fight is happening in the New York Times. I'm like how high brow unlike chill you. But I was like people's lives. Get destroyed by doing freedom. You're playing with fire. I don't know. I think the reason we're talking about this. Because of that stat you read about one percent of the whole US population showed up for this March. Like, I think not to defend the New York Times ignoring internet feminist beef for years lease ignore it right about the beef. But I do think that there is there something going on here where like because of the sheer size of the number of people who showed up there is like the sense of this is like the force pushing back against the agenda of this presidency. Which is like obviously bullshit. I don't think that even the people who are like most invested in time and energy with like organizing things under the like women's March TM banner would claim that like this is the way to be in the resistance. And but don't you also believe that that is actually like a classic kind of sexism. Like, why do we help to solve every? That's right. The idea that like, okay. So now, this group of women is like going to like shovel start shoveling the shit in real time is like what everyone has been conditioned to think like socially. That's one thing. I also think it's interesting when you said like you don't show up at the March to have a good time. Because like when I. Thought about my motivation for actually attending the women's March. I would not say that I show up to have a good time. But I don't feel like that is where my activists work happens. Like, there is not a part of me that thinks this is how I'm making change showing up at this March every January like, I honestly go there to feel a sense of community and being reinvigorated in a sense. I think that sometimes it's good to be photographed in a large group of people whose only uniting messages, we hate this president. And I also think that like these problems are going to happen aside from like the whole like women shoveling everyone shit, which is a real dynamic here. The other thing that's going on is like if you think of feminism like funnel like taking a political stance or doing an activist thing or maybe calling themselves feminists for the first time, this is providing some really low level way of doing that which I don't confuse with the kind of like long game activists work that needs to happen during. This presidency or frankly any time, but I do think that it is kind of a recruitment tool. I guess is what I'm trying to say. And it's a tool for recommitting to doing activism and other venues like that is what it is. For me. I do not see it as Representative of a resistance. Do not see it as the governing body of feminism one thing that's happening in the background of a lot of the coverage. And I'm talking now about like more well-meaning coverage not like bullshit, right wing media. Coverage of these issues is like it's not being properly contextualized in the scope of other activism, that's happening or like other feminist activism work. That's happening are fair. Like, I was thinking a lot about why this story is having such a moment in in like a press that usually ignores like large feminist issues people love it when women fight, you know. And there is something very appealing about it. And there's something very the historical forces who want to make sure that we are never. Free. They like love this shit like going back to this conversation. I think a lot of Jewish people have that is always like, why do black people like why can't they like I dunno exile, Louis Farrakhan, once and for all we have like he is not relevant in my imagination in the same way that he is relevant in in imagination of Jewish person. And to be clear like feeling anger about how he is relevant in their imagination is like one hundred percent justified. Like, I don't wanna gloss over about. The man is a hate monger. But the reason that this is so top of mind for me is that again when I look at the conversation around like the women's March leaders, and this this conversation about like should they step down? Should what should they do? Whatever. I was like first of all nobody should have the job of being a fulltime activists. Not as crazy. Click username in listen ending. No movement should have leaders. Here's what I don't think. So I think that movement should one hundred percent have leaders. I think that like in this. That we are in how we raise leaders to be like faces of movements. They don't quite fully represent and then there's a celebrity aspect to it. And there's this like dry Norma's like fame drivers like this is just bad. It's just about it's also not a job that I want. I'd never understand why somebody wants not job also being the coach of the women's March is very different than being that. I don't know like the CEO of nonprofit. I think there's also something about like actual like what is your role? Like, what do you do? And that's an organization not a movement. I think. Arches an organization the women's March is an organization, and that is controversial like going back to this point about like watching somebody like to make Mallory like take a lot of fire for this organization in particular has been very instructive for me. And the reason that I talked about the context of how long suffrage Chuck like I wanna be clear, I don't want to I don't wanna fall into the trap of the women's March. It's been three hundred sixty five days. What have they accomplished? I was like when it's been one hundred years come back, and then we can talk about it because truly we cannot evaluate what they've accomplished. But I also feel confident in saying that like in the last year of the women's March this outside amount of power that I have seen people ascribe to them. Like, I personally do not feel it. I was like I do not feel that the women's March has been powerful on a grass roots, and on Elektra level the way that people are projecting onto them like a policy level outside of electoral totally, and that's not that's not a knock on the women's March. It is the reality of like Hulo. You just got here. Unit. Yeah. Just got like, and I also want to be clear saying that like I am disappointed and disgusted that it took the leaders of the women's March. So long to say the very simple anti-semitism now. Cool. You know, I'm like, that's the thing that we should are. Also, like, we're sorry for right? And we're sorry for minimizing hundred percent. Like, I wanna add like all of that. As a context of the thing that I'm going to say that like it has been very instructive for me to see in this episode happen at the same time as the new congress as being sworn in watching Nancy Pelosi on TV received this like roaring ovation and like adoration from people and she in her speech. She was talking about suffrage. And she was like, you know, it's been like like women only got the right to vote one hundred years ago. And I was like this is Mary interesting. I was like a witch women Nancy Pelosi. And so for me having somebody like to meet them. Valerie, who in the grand scheme of electoral politics of grassroots politics of like name it. I'm like kind of a nobody if I'm honest about my feelings watching her have to answer more for white supremacy. That Nancy Pelosi who is the leader of the house like a getaway with something. Like that. I was like this very instructive moment. And it's a reminder about why we fight about the things that we fight about. And why we are hurt in the ways that we are hurt. And why we lash out in the ways that we lash out it is instructive, but it's also like fine like women been fighting women fight and women get shit done. And we don't all have to get along. But we do have to do the work. I'm Notting so hard my head is about to roll off. Because this Nancy Pelosi example is perfect because when I hear a phrase like we must find a way to live with our differences and unite to fight the bigger challenges, and the readers from the readers Email that. Applies to me like a hierarchy of what does the challenge like that means that like someone's making a decision about what a bigger challenge is. And historically like when those terms are set they are set by white women like women suddenly become synonymous with white women. And you get things like a speech saying we've had the vote for this many years, and it's like, okay. Must we? And I think that we must find a way to live with our differences. It's like who is the we like it's the same question. And I really think that like we have derided the oppression Olympics. Like, if you really believe that injustice is about like a system of incredibly complex and interlocking systemic problems. Which is like what we believe in this family. You are not going to be able to decide in a group of millions of people what the bigger challenges are like part of what's going on is that like everyone is doing their part to work on things that they have a unique ability to affect unique investment in and like there is an expectation in my mind of support and solidarity. But like everyone doesn't have to do that the same way and everyone doesn't have to unite behind the same goal and because of the women's March isn't United by the same goal. Does not mean that like all activism is in disarray and women can't get it together. Yeah. I'm like oppression as in disarray, and then Shambo exactly activism wild oppression is like chaotic like. Yeah. Like activists doing. Sorry. I'm just kidding oppression. As a shambles. Shambles. It's not on. None of it makes sense. None of it makes sense at works. So just like ask these questions about who's finding away to live with what differences who is determining who the bigger challenges are like to me. I'm like, I would rather be affiliated with people who are continuing to engage in like difficult conversations about the shambles of oppressions all around us than people who are like extremely on message and exclusionary and like continuing to replicate the problems they see around them by knowing them. Yeah. You know? And this like this moment is also such a reminder to me because I can get so cynical about so much of this like so much activism that you say that you're like levering news. I have I'm delivering news to myself because after myself. That, you know, part of what is going on in this moment as people are hurting. And scared it's not about this like academic kind of you know, like explain your oppression or use the right word the woke nece Olympics. Like, this is not what is going on here. What is really going on here? It's like people are hurt and people are afraid and sometimes those of the actual words that you need to use. It's so important like even amongst marginalized people to see and hear each other. Because otherwise, all you think is you're paying the pain that nobody else has seen before isn't that James Baldwin quote about this. And he's like, and then you read a book, and then you learn that the world is full of pain. That's I mean onto so nighttimes ball. I'm like paraphrasing so terribly to the state of James Baldwin, I apologize. But you know, what? I mean, like a lot of the blinders are not because you hate other people the blinders are because you are in so much pain that you think that your pain is only paying the world, right? It's blotted out. Out like, your ability to really grapple with the pain of other. Right. And so like for me, like, my my thing that I would like to see from people who are an activist circles as like a little less, academia, speak and a lot more. Like, can we start saying the things that we're afraid of like in real ways, and the things that we are hurt by because this women's March conversation to me, and it's not to say that like people would have responded in the right way? But I have a different reaction hearing from the like, why are you still pals with Louis Farrakhan? Like versus like, a, hey, I am really scared for myself, and I'm scared for my family, and here's a person that threatens my since. With him lording, and you're wolf sheep's clothing. And you seem okay with him. I don't know the results of that. But I do think that like at some point talking about the fear in a real way. And in this like, hyper personalized way, which I think is the fear is what led people who had never marched before March. It's what led people who didn't give a shit about politics people who never voted day in their lives to be like, oh, I'm gonna like knit thing. And like go halfway across the country with my friends. I was like what does that it's fear, and it's hurt and pain. And so we should probably call by what it is and start dealing with instead of pretending that everything is a system that you had to learn about in graduate school. But also like, you know, I think that when I listen to you say that I realized that there are some environments in which pudding like that hurt and pain at the forefront works because you are all there with good intentions, and I think like one reason. Why there is so much strife? It's like, oh weren't we supposed to all be here with a similar intention and like and that is somehow thrown into question. And it's like, actually, I don't think you can lead with hurt when you're dealing with people who actively want to undermine your existence. But I do think that like when you were working in close relationship with I'm not even gonna say like in the same movement as but if your work is like intersecting with the work of other people, and you have some kind of core core beliefs about Justice or about freedom. You can lead with something like hurt and pain and fear, and that can be a powerful force. That presumption is very important that the person on the other end cares about your pain. One reason why I don't feel like panicked about the state of activism when I read one New York Times article about the the women's marches because it's like I see this kind of like one point on a bigger scatter plot that is like way more complex. Do you? Remember that part and Rebecca's book where Maxine Waters is watching Bella Abzug yell out Gloria Steinem. Somebody is yelling somebody is crying. I'm missed remembering story, but there's drama. But if I'm honest, it's probably Bella is yelling. Like, I have a hard time seeing yellow labs. Bellas yelling gore. I don't see that anywhere. And like there's like crying and yelling and Maxine is like classic lie. Black lady watching to white lady as being like what the fuck is going on here. And n gorgeous goes, that's how we talk to each other in New York. And that story like made me so happy for so many reasons because was like this is such a good Wien yet. Like people been fighting people run fighting since before you were the apple in the eye of like your own fucking oppression. Like, I've been fighting for you have been like wanting to do something about it. We're not reinventing the wheel. And so I think that like reading a lot about especially like the women's movement is something that it makes me feel better because I'm like, oh, these people did a lot. But like my God like they need to therapists in hiding at every step of the way internally as well as externally, but look at us. Now, we got we can have a credit card without a husband. I signed my own apartment. I don't have to be like shackled to him. And I was like those bitches did that and they were crying and fighting every day, right? Thank you, your work. So I don't know. I think that like look to other activists in your life because and looked like read about their truth because we're not doing. Anything new here. Like hatred has not new activism is not Niro. So I don't know I take tiny bit of solace that I'm like, oh, we're right on schedule. This is great. This is great. So I mean, it's been right on schedule since the very first days. Right. Like, it's not even a not even knew today. Yeah. Shambles in every corner. There aren't even any corners left. The whole building has collapsed shambles. I love this. Okay. I mean to lay on the floor because this is a lot. I need a snack. This is a lot. Okay. Let's the snack and on the floor and to all the activists out there who are fighting with other activists, we see you. And we appreciate you. See you in the fight. I know at least call out anti-semitism to all the Jewish women out there and he's call out anti-black racism. Thank you. You know, like we wanna root for everybody. But also, we don't have to.

So the big story of the day to begin is the situation with regard to the United States Konomi. We'll get to the censorship on Facebook in just one second. But the Senate the US economy created two hundred sixty three thousand jobs in April unemployment has now fallen to its lowest rate since nineteen sixty nine since nineteen sixty nine to the economy continues to boom all the talk about President Trump and his volatility and President Trump and President Trump and president. The fact is President Trump's policies have made businesses feel comfortable. His regulatory policies have made them feel as though they are not going to be targeted. The fact that Republicans still control the Senate provides check on democratic excesses. So businesses are looking at all of this. And they're saying okay well for the foreseeable future. Let's keep pumping money into the system receivable. Higher up is a good time for the economy. Let's make this thing happen. The economy generated a stronger than expected to hundred sixty three thousand new. Jobs in April helping to drive down the unemployment rate to a forty nine year. Low of three point six percent. The increase in new jobs easily topped the two thousand two hundred seventeen thousand market watch forecast. The jobless rate slid from three point eight percents in March to hit the lowest level since December of nineteen sixty-nine. Economists consider anything below four percent unemployment rate in the United States to effectively be full employment. The average wage paid to American workers rose six cents or point two percent to twenty seven dollars seventy seven cents an hour. Now, I want to again emphasize that wage twenty seven dollars seventy seven cents an hour. We keep hearing from left at a fifteen dollar minimum wage is necessary the average wage in the United States is more than twelve dollars more than that. Number of people are surviving on minimum wage is extraordinarily low overall the twelve month out rate of hourly wage gains was unchanged at three point two percent hours worth each. We each week fell point one hour in April two thirty four point four. So for all the talk about how Americans are being deeply overworked. If people are working less than thirty five hours a week. On average. It is hard to make the case that they're being desperately overworked less than thirty five hours a week on average and wages are increasing means that people aren't being worked harder for less pay. It means they are making more pay for working fewer hours, thirty five hours a week seven hours a day. Hey, some simple math will tell you this. That says not mean that people are are slipping away in a in a wage slave economy. The way the Democrats seem to be suggesting the government revised the increase in new jobs in March two hundred eighty nine thousand from preliminary one hundred ninety six thousand February's gain was raised from fifty six was raised to fifty six thousand from thirty three thousand which means that the past months have also seen higher increases in jobs than normal. The economy is still going great guns. President Trump's economy doesn't get full credit for the economy 'cause no president does Obama didn't. But he does get credit for not quashing the economy. President Obama got blame for these lowest recovery in American history and the economy continues to boom. So this is very good news for President Trump as I've said if the economy. Continues to be good. If President Trump keeps his mouth shot, then he will have a significant shot of being able to win a general election reelection bid, if you the polls right now, it's fascinating. If you look at the polls right now, what you are seeing is that the various Democrats running against President Trump are not running in the mid fifties. You would expect given president from approval rating that all of these polls would have Trump at forty two percent the same as his approval rating, but his approval rating does not match up with the number of people who say they will vote for him his approval rating hangs around in the low forties. The number of people who say that they will vote for him is always hanging about forty five to forty seven percent. In fact, the only candidate in this new CNN poll is amazing this new CNN pull the only candidate who drives who drives Trump down to his approval rating in terms of his public support for voting is Bego. Really this new poll from CNN has Baidoa fifty two and Trump at forty two. The is it's pretty hilarious. Actually. So it has by has Bernie at v. Eighty and Trump at forty four which I think would not be the final result of that election cycle. It has Biden at fifty one and from forty five which is the reason that Biden right now is doing so on the primaries because Democrats are affectively suggesting that he is the most electable candidate Peabody judge only at forty seven percents to Trump's forty four percents comma Harris at forty nine percent from forty five percents. They're not winning a majority against the guys unpopular as President Trump. Elizabeth Warren loses to Trump in this poll. So Trump forty eight Elizabeth Warren forty-seven natural. This means probably the Democrats will probably nominate Elizabeth Warren. I think the way this works is. So that's the latest on the political race and the real big news. This morning is not even the economy. All that's huge news. The real big news. This morning is that Facebook has now banned a bevy of what the media termed far right extremists. There's only one problem some of the people who are from far, right? Extremists are not in fact of the right? Hey, so they labeled Louis Farrakhan, a far right leader. The New York Times talked about the talks about what happened here, then we'll get the media coverage of the actual issue. So the New York Times regionally said that far right extremists were being banned. And they use that description for Louis Farrakhan leader of the nation of Islam and virulent anti Semite who's been pictured with virtually everybody in prominent circles on the left in article for the Atlantic was originally, titled Instagram Facebook ban, far right extremists, the New York Times Washington Post political in the Atlantic all described booze Farrakhan's far right extremist. Now, the reason that this matters I will get to in just one second. So here is the actual story. According to the New York Times after years of wavering about how to handle the extreme voices populating its platform Facebook on Thursday victims seven of its most controversial users many of whom are conservatives. Immediately inflaming the debate about the power and accountability of large technology companies. Now, I think it is worthwhile noting here that the New York Times description is funny as soon as they start describing people who are. Fringe like Alex Jones. They start calling them conservatives. That's because for the press. There is no difference from between conservatives and quote far. Right extremists. Right. According to the economist, I was all right. And then when they corrected it. I was a radical conservative. There's no difference for the media between a normal mainstream conservative and Alex Jones. They just don't see any distinction there. And not only that they also see if somebody is extreme that person must be far. Right. The I've never seen any of these newspapers describe anybody as far as I can recall as far left extremists Ray, Bernie Sanders is an open socialist who used to defend the Soviet Union and talk about the glories of bread lines. And he is the secondary contender in the democratic primaries right now, the press conflict conservatism with all right, and they can play not being a wild leftist with with being a conservative lump all of that together. And then they say, okay, conservatives are bad. This is how the game is played. The social network said it had barred Alex Jones conspiracy theorist and founder of Infowars from its platform along with a handful of other extremists Louis Farrakhan, the outspoken black nationalist minister, who has frequently been criticized for his anti semitic remarks was also banned the Silicon Valley company said these users were disallowed from using Facebook and Instagram under its policies against dangerous. Individuals and organizations now their statements here is is so impermissible vague. It's so insanely vague if you're gonna ban somebody from your platform, you should have a pretty good reason you're talking about Facebook, which is the biggest social media platform on planet earth with billions of users. If you are a platform, you really should have to release a specific statement explaining what this person did wrong. Not only the person has a right to defend themselves against the charge, which could very well be a smear. But also so that everybody else knows what the rules are. But Facebook is acting like an arbitrary centralized government here banning? Without even we don't need to give you an excuse why you're bandaged band. Why will because you we call? You a hateful extremists. We'll make somebody hateful extremist. Facebook has no hard definition because it's an innately malleable term a Facebook spokeswoman said in a statement, quote, we've always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology, the process for evaluating potential violators is extensive, and it is what led us to our decision for move those accounts today. We'll thanks I now know nothing about your standard. This statement itself has a bunch of problems in bedded in it. So they say they've always been individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate. Okay. Well, Alex Jones has been promoting exactly the same sorts of material for years only. Now, do decide that he has to be banned. Melian apples has been promoting the exact same sort of stuff for years only. Now, do you side? He has to go lose. Farrakhan has been calling Jews termites for years only. Now, do you decide that he has to go? So what changed what was the new thing that happened that changed Facebook's opinion on all of this? That's question. Number one question number two. They say that they've banned individuals or organisms that promote or engage in violence and hate his so how about organizations that promote violence against like ISIS. So as my friend, Eric Weinstein pointed out, he suggested correctly that he is a supporter of the peshmerga in Kurdistan, fighting ISIS. They're engaged in violence. Does that mean that he is engaged in supporting violence in? You're going to have to make some distinctions here. I would assume and then they conflict violence and hate organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate because Alex Jones so far as I'm aware has not engaged in violence. Now, if you can show me evidence that he had like, I I do not I I've seen no evidence. That Paul Joseph Watson another person who was banned. Mainly because he's the top report info worse has no evidence at all the pulse. Watson has engaged in violence. Now, we have to make a distinction between violence and speech. I'll explain in just a second first. Let's talk about your sleep quality. So the. I am not a good sleeper, which means that when I go to sleep better have the best mattress on the market. Good news. I do helixsleep has a quiz. They take two minutes to complete and matches your body. Type Ansley preference to the perfect mattress for you. Whether you're aside sleeper or hot sleep or the plush or firm bed with helix. There's no more confusion.

That's helixsleep dot com slash Ben. For up to one hundred twenty five dollars off your mattress order.

That's helixsleep dot com slash men for the most comfortable mattress on planet earth. You dot com slash also cost you an arm and leg. Okay. So back to the statement from Facebook, they say again that they've always been individuals were organsations that promote or engage in violence and hate so as I say, the violence standard is big, and then they're complaining violence and hate so people saying bad things is not the same thing as people issuing calls for say murder. I should know this because as news have reported. There's a person who was arrested this week for for making violent death threats against jerk Kushner, and Donald Trump junior and who has made violent threats against me and against my employees. This this person was engaged in a level of criticism. That is not the norm. That's why this person has. Been arrested right now. Thank you law enforcement for doing their job. There's even vast difference between that and people who just say bad things about me who say hateful things about me. And they're plenty of people who say hateful things about me on a regular basis. There is a vast difference between people utilizing their free speech in ways that I don't like I get hit by more than I was the number one target of antisemitic bile in twenty sixteen according to the anti defamation league. The number one target. I never filed a police report with any of this. If I know the difference between people who are spewing hateful garbage at me and people who are actively threatening my life. There's a difference between violence and hate there's a difference between speech and violence. No matter how much I dislike the speech. So that's a distinction that Facebook seems to be obliterating. And then finally, they have no hard definition as to what is eight full. So this is completely arbitrary now. It's okay. Well, basically, what it feels like is that Facebook came up with a list of people that they wanted to ban who were anti leftist. I don't wanna say they're on the right because I again, I think that the right is a somewhat confusing terms. Sometimes when I say the right, generally. I'm talking about conservatives when the press uses the right? They mean, people are anti left. I don't think that those are the same category of people. There are a lot of people who are anti-left who also happen to be not conservative anti-conservative on group of people who seem to be anti-left. But also not conservative in any way are white supremacist, for example, there anti-left because they don't like multi-culturalism, and because they they're racial supremacists. And all of that. But they're not conservative because they don't believe in limited government. They don't believe in the values of western civilization. They scorn Judeo Christian values. They scorn the idea of freedoms in the constitution. Those are people are anti-left, but they're not conservative. The media will consider them. Right. So for purposes of the media's terminology, the people who they are banning many of them are on the quote, unquote. Right. They really mean anti-left K, but they've kinda throughs Farrakhan in there. So they could say, listen, we're not biased. We're throwing in Louis Farrakhan too. But the fact is that again. None of these people said anything new got the man Facebook is simply deciding that they want to ask people that they consider hateful now. I may even agree with some of the people who they consider hateful again, I've been personally targeted by several of the people on this list. But that does not mean that my definition of hate is the definition of hate that is legally applicable. It doesn't mean that my definition of hatred from everybody else's definition of hate. There really is too much play in the joint here. Nine thing that Facebook wanted to issue rules say you're not allowed to call people certain names, for example, he can't call somebody the N word like have a clear definition of rules. How about that? That's that's pretty much all that people are asking for and Facebook refuses to grant that instead they wished to go after people along vague standards, and those standards do not apply. Equally to everybody show you in just one second. Okay. So Facebook suggests that they have this constant standard. They say that the process revalued and potential violators. Extensive it's what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today. Facebook's moves. Says the New York Times is one of the tech industries broadest actions to punish high profile extremists at a time when social media companies are under fire for allowing hateful content and misinformation to spread on their services. It's a politically delicate moment they say, and then they they're the only suggestion that we have seen thus far with regard to why many of these people were banned is because many of these people featured shows hosting for example, Gavin mcginnis so Facebook found instances of extremist my Alex Jones, and others that pushed the company to take action against them. According to the New York Times, for example, Jones last year hosted Infowars show, featuring Gavin mcginnis a far right political commentator whom Facebook had designated as a hate figure. Okay. You know, who used to host Gav McGuinness was crtv. Crtv to have a show with Gavin mcginnis now, the blaze TV are they gonna be on the blaze TV Gavin McGuinness his appeared wide variety of shows, including Fox News. This mean, Fox News will now be banned. You're not Bolus had signalled praised for Gavin McGuinness earlier this year, by the way on the on the on the spectrum of people who suck Gavin mcginnis is actually not as crappy as my apples, in my personal opinion. But if the idea is anybody who's ever talked to Gavin mcginnis gets thrown out while then this is going to create quite a problem for Facebook as well. Now, the reason it's going to create quite a problem for Facebook. And for Instagram, for example, is because one of the people they Dan was Louis Farrakhan, Louis Farrakhan is as evil in his views as anybody on the list, I would say more evil in his views than pretty much. Everyone was probably the most evil of the people who are on this list Louis Farrakhan for years, he's been an open brutal blatant, anti Semite whose genocidal language about Jews and Louis Farrakhan is being pushed today by snoop Dogg. So is Instagram and Facebook, they are they going to ban snoop dog because the fact is that according to the New York Times people like Alex Jones are being banned not for stuff that they did. But for featuring Gavin McGuinness. And my leeann apples is being banned, by the way. I think of sucks right Milos, the kind of person as a human being who during the twenty sixteen election. He said that I was insufficiently committed to the cause of preserving whiteness in the United States affectively, and he called me a cook for this. And on the day that my son was born he sent me a picture of a black baby on Twitter because obviously I wanted my wife to have sex with the black man to produce a black child because I was in favor of what the racial mixing of the United States or something in. It's just it was an insane thing to Gavin. So you Napa Lous is bad on his on his own merits. But you Napalese being banned because he signalled praised for Gavin mcginnis. Okay, fine. If that's the standard why snoop Dogg so on Facebook Instagram yesterday. He put an Instagram video in which he actively encouraged people to post videos of Louis Farrakhan on Facebook and on Instagram. This is okay, snoop Dogg's at the White House, by the way with Barack Obama snoop Dogg is a deeply influential public figure so the snoop Dogg away because if it's go by associate. This a pretty strong association is not what. If you down what it like, I'm down with it post, your favorite minutes, Farrakhan video Instagram Facebook page show, some love to a real brother postie right now. He got is everywhere. If you ain't got no snatch it off YouTube is everywhere. Put up some minister, Louis Farrakhan footage show, some show what he really be talking about educating truth. Came ban all of his campaign all of us. He's a real brother. Okay. So there is nuke dog. Not just making the case for free speech for Bush Farrakhan. But defending Farrakhan, he's a real brother show it he really be talking about. Okay that. Okay. So you're telling me that Milo is banned or Paul Joseph Watson is banned for so me. Just get the straight. Paul Joseph Watson has banned because he is associated with Alex Jones. Who is associated with Gavin mcginnis is this the Santer Facebook is using now. Okay. You're gonna have to dog dog is actively associated with Louis Farrakhan, this I don't think any of these people should be banned. And I think that if they are banned, I'm a clear standard as to why these people should be banned. Facebook won't even articulate that. I love this Jones on of the director of Harvard's technology and social change research project. Studies online extremism says I'm sure they're gonna make a slippery slope argument here. No, I'm not making a slippery slope argument. I am making an argument that you do not have clear standards by any stretch of the imagination. I'm not saying you're going after Alex Jones, therefore, you'll go after Paul Joseph Watson, therefore, you will go after me that is not the case that I am making the case I'm making that you have not are ticketed any standard at all. And so you've having not articulated a standard. It's not that I suspect there will be a slippery slope. I am suggesting there is no absolute principle that is being applied here, and I have proof. I have proof that there is no absolute principle being applied here. This proof comes courtesy of Jewish insider today quote in a letter Facebook vice president Joel Kaplan makes clear the site will not remove lies or content that is inaccurate. And that includes denying the holocaust. So if you're an open holocaust denier, you will not be removed from Facebook. But if you once had a conversation with Gavin McGuinness or. Or said something nice about Kevin McGuinness, not on Facebook. You'll be removed from Facebook. Kaplan, who's vice president for global public policy at Facebook. He said that Facebook intends to allow cost on the platform so long as it doesn't advocate violence against Jewish people in any way, by the way. This is the actual correct perspective. What Kaplan is articulating here should be perspective. You should be allowed to say, whatever you want on places like Facebook, so long as we're not advocating for violence because there's a stark difference between violence and speech that is unparalleled -able and gross. And terrible Kaplan's has I wonder score that Facebook reject hate. We take down any content that celebrates defense or attempts to justify the holocaust. So let me let me get this straight. If you deny the holocaust didn't happen. You're cool. But if you take down, but if you put up content that says, the holocaust was justified. Then you're what what does he think holocaust deniers do does? He think that holocaust deniers are just like, no, I have questions about the history. Is that really what he thinks that how costs Nile is holocaust denial is a way of downplaying the evil of the Nazis. That's what holocaust denial is four. He's the same goes for any content. That mocks holocaust victims accuses victims of lying about atrocities spews hate or advocates violence against Jewish people in any way. Now, he broadening the standard again, but the standard is so inconsistent that my sister has been targeted on Facebook by anti-semites, she's reported them for years. Okay. Nothing's ever happened to any of these people. This is the wildly inconsistent standard. And the media who are celebrating Facebook for doing this on their finally standing up to hate. I have some questions about this media as some questions about these free speech. Firefighting advocates because I don't think that that's actually what they are doing here. I don't think that's actually what they are doing here. And if and again, if we are going to now start banning people for having guests on their program, you know, who had Alex Jones on his program. Joe Rogan, so is YouTube and Facebook these people going to banjo Rogan now and then because I had Joe Rogan honor the beyond me. And then because they had me on the everyone has been on pretty much. I've been with FOX. This is all nonsense. It's anti-free-speech nonsense. They'll talk about the legality of it in a second. 'cause there are people calling for regulation. Facebook talk about what that would look like whether that should be done in a second. But I wanna talk about what the media are doing here. And I don't trust the media to set a standard for hate in in a standard for what should be been.

I mean, I I saw members of the media celebrating this yesterday because they don't like any of the figures on the list does what I'm not fond of any of the figures. Listen, I've been targeted personally by many of them. I keep repeating that. Because I do not have a stake in these people staying online other than that. I like free speech, which seems like a pretty heavy steak. The reason I don't trust the media on the stuff the media lie. Then they can flight to the media as mentioned earlier as they labeled Louis Farrakhan far-right extremist. There is no such thing as far left extremists. And everyone on the right is an extremist who to be banned as evidence, I point to the pointer institute journalism nonprofit organization, they put up a list of five hundred fifteen news websites identified as unreliable, the raised eyebrows. This we're gonna posted that index of what it identified as unreliable news sites. The index came from verge merging various list identifying websites purportedly spreading misinformation the list was compiled by the group's international fact, checking network it initially included the Washington Examiner. The language on the website called for full boycotts, by advertisers of all of these blacklisted sites. Enlist included. Everyone included daily wire it included. Drudge report it included Breitbart included, daily signal from Heritage Foundation included, the Washington Examiner included just an enormous enormous list of pretty much every site that was to the right of center like all of them were considered unreliable by pointer. And finally after blowback and they're calling for boycotts. These folks this is this is what the left will do. This is why media matters does this. They try to label the southern poverty Law Center. It's all the same. They tried to generate the idea that if you are anywhere to the right of center or anti-left in any way that you ought to be banned, you're unreliable, and you ought to be shut down your d platform is the way that they put it and pointer actually had pulled list. But I promise you have point had not pulled the list. It would be cited by the New York Times and the Washington Post every time the mentioned the daily wire in any of their stories. They would say an organization that points are has declared unreliable they do that. With media matters all the time for years, they were using the southern poverty Law Center, a hack left organization to smear all right wing. Sources every time. They mentioned Prager you or daily wire or anybody else they would say an organization deemed hateful by these other poverty Law Center. So the media create this echo chamber where everybody who disagrees with them is evil and everybody who agrees with them is good. And you can tell who's evil, and whose goodbye who disagrees with you very convenient on Thursday night point actually had to pull the list. They're managing editor Barbara Allen posted a letter to the editor explaining the decision. Allen wrote. At the initial aim of the project was to provide a useful tool for readers to gauge the legitimacy of the information, they were consuming. However, she wrote soon after republished we received complaints from those on the list and readers who objected to the inclusion of certain sites and the exclusion of others. We began an audit to test the accuracy and veracity of the west, and while we feel that many of the sites did have a track record of publishing unreliable information. I review weaknesses in the methodology we detected inconsistencies between the findings of the original databases were the sources for the list and our own rendering of the final report as a result at that point was removing this unreliable sites list until we are able to provide our audience more consistent consistent and rigorous set of criteria while there is no consistent in rigorous set of criteria here. One of the things that always find musings that they put together these lists. Left's members left to in which they say that sites are unreliable how do they determine on reliable? They find a couple of stories that have been wrong over the course of a four year history. And then they say the site is unreliable you see this a lot of these studies. Okay. Well, the New York Times blows stories on a pretty routine basis so to CNN these are not considered unreliable sources because the vast majority of stories that they are not factually inaccurate. We hear daily wire fifty stories day we've been doing so for four years that means that at this point. We have posted tens of thousands of stories it should not be hard to find four or five stories that are unreliable. But that is also true for all these other outlets with this really comes down to this objective method of measuring the sites you don't like, and then finding some sort of covering excuse to ban them. It's almost impossible. Not to read this stuff in this way. So what should be done about this? So there's been a lot of talk about the idea of regulating Facebook as public utility. I I don't think the Facebook is public utilities a private company. Facebook is actually begging the United States government to regulate them Facebook Twitter, they've been asking members of the governments regulate them why? Because they're on the verge of being bankrupted by the European standards on hate speech. So they're caught between sort of a rock and a hard place in Europe. They don't have the same standards on speech because you're does not respect free speech in the same way that the United States does one of the reasons the us has better than Europe has better standards on free speech that is very very good thing. And you're the beneficiary of it it, but what's happening in Europe. Right now is that the Europeans have set the standards for hate speech. And then they are looking at suing or taking down Facebook over, quote, unquote, hate speech appearing on the platform. So Facebook is now looking for similar regulation from the United States. So that they don't have to be eaten alive by the market in the United States. They can blame it on the government of the United States. That's actually happening here. Now, there's been a lot of talk about whether they should be regulated because they're affectively monopoly. I don't think that effectively monopoly because I think that there can be competitors to Facebook. I'm not a fan of antitrust law as general area of law. The only monopoly that I really see our government guaranteed monopolies. If you are just a company that is very successful in your space, and you're not gal Jing the customer. I don't think that you have technical monopoly tend to be consumer side advocate when it comes to deciding whether a company's monopoly, there's sort of two theories of monopoly one is that if you are the only company in your space supply side, then your monopoly, the consumer size has well who cares? If you're the only company in your space, so long as they're not gouging, the consumer if the consumer is getting better products that is the purpose of the market. It is the possibility of competition that allows for cheap products to continue being in the marketplace to different theories of monopoly, I tend to side with the second theory, which is why I was not in favor of for example, brick not Microsoft in the late nineties the other way. Of looking at Facebook is to try and try and ration out ready to reason out whether they are in fact, a platform or publisher you've heard me talk about this before in the second. Explain legally speaking what that means. I I for decades credit cards have been telling us to buy now and pay for it later with interest. That's how they make their money.

We're the second most downloaded podcast in America. Make us number one min come on. Let's make this thing happen guys. We are the largest fastest growing conservative podcast and radio show in America Already. So let's talk for a second about whether Facebook is a platform or a publisher. So to illustrate the difference between a platform and a publisher think about the difference between your phone line and daily wire dot com website that I run see your phone line. If you are talking on your phone line, and you say something terrible AT and T variety. They're not responsible for what happens on foam one. None of them responsible for what mint mobile, they're not responsible for what happens on your phone line because it's an open platform, my publisher, if I print something that is liable as we can be sued if we violate copyright. We can be sued in now there's a section forty seven thirty which is a provision of the Communications Decency Act, which creates an enormous amount of freedom on the internet. It's very good provision as a general rule section to thirty was designed to protect providers or to protect publishers effective platforms effectively sections thirty says, quote, no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher. Or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider. So in other words, YouTube is not really responsible for you. Posting a copyright violent of video you are responsible for that. Now, you take down because they don't wanna be legally liable, but they will. But it is you who are responsible for that. The same thing is true on Facebook. If you decide to post something that is violent threat Facebook is not responsible for your violent threat. You are responsible for your violent threat, which is appropriate. He's are open platforms anyone can post virtually anything. And in fact, it is even true the daily wire the site that I run we are not responsible for your comments. If we have opened threads, and you post something that is terrible or libelous. We are not responsible for all that. Now that changes all of that should change logically speaking, if there's no clearly articulated standard by which comments are being removed or my which videos are being removed. In other words, let's say that YouTube decides that they are only going to release videos provided by users that are that are. On one topic. And then they just decide that they're going to remove all other topics. That's a clear standard. But now, let's say that YouTube is doing what people suspect they are doing which is democratizing specific sides of the aisle that they are taking down videos that violate certain things and not taking down other videos. Let's hit Facebook. Decides to do that the question now is do they look more like how I run my website daily wire where all of my independent contractors right for me were responsible for them. Does it look more like that we have free contributes, by the way, we're responsible for the writing if people right for us does matter if we pay them if we print something, and it goes through the Oriel process, and then it goes up we are responsible for that does Facebook look more like that or Facebook look more like an open forum where they're like back policing things on a on a consistent basis. If there are no standards are ticketed. There's a good case to be made that section thirty of the communications act should actually the Communications Decency Act should be changed to require that. If you are a platform, you should have to have at least a clearly articulated standard for what is REM. Moved. And what is not because otherwise, you really not acting like a platform, really? You're acting more like a publisher like I decide on an editorial level what we wish to publish well Facebook if they have decided that politically motivated concerns are the issue will the more like us. So that is what is going on with these sort of vague hate standards. If you have a vague hate standard that is only being applied to one side of the aisle that would suggest that you're acting more like a more like a publisher than like a platform. And that means that there should be some serious considerations. Revising section to thirty of the Communications Decency. Act. Now, the case against that just to give the other side is that you don't want government getting involved with regulating websites, generally, you don't want the government in. Now. I don't think that's what would be happening here. I think instead what would be happening here is that you are opening up to I build websites that acts like publishers. They're not quashing, my free speech. I'm the publisher of daily wire, they're not quashing, my free speech. The fact that we can be sued for liable for copyright violation. Will the same case could be made with regard to Facebook. If you're responsible for your material, you're responsible for your material. There's a better thing that could happen here. Hey, Facebook is asking for wider regulation that by the way, they want the government to actually regulate speech that can be put on Facebook. But there's a better stance than this which is held at a clearly articulated standard that says what you can put up and what you cannot put up on Facebook. How about that? How about like terms of service that aren't impermissible vague? How about you have to offer an excuse when you band somebody from your service, and so we can see it and learn from the case study, but the social media companies don't want to do that. And that's why people are so suspicious of what exactly is going on here, and they should be suspicious of what is going on here. Again, if you are if you're a person who has one setting nice thing about Paul Joseph Watson, and you're going to be banned. Or if you're watching yourself, right? Paul Joseph Watson, by the way is not nearly as extreme just as a human from what I have seen. He's not nearly as extreme as Alex Jones guy for whom he works. But if pulse have Watson, if the idea is that pulse. Watson was nice to have him again. Milo Yannopoulos was nice to get mcginnis, and they can be banned. Again, you're going to have to ask why snoop Dogg? So there why are half the people in congress pictures, Louis Farrakhan, still their standards are not being evenly applied because they can't even be articulated. They're not even trying to articulate them, frankly, because they know that they're gonna get help from the mainstream media that agrees with them. That's the bottom line in the end, the New York Times, very happy. They free speech newspaper, supposedly is very happy that the social media outlets are throwing people off that they don't like I don't like a lot of these people either that doesn't mean that they should be thrown off the platforms. It doesn't if you don't like what they have to say have an easy solution. You don't have to watch them. I've another easy solution. You can yell at them all of these are appropriate. I don't mean like physically yell at them and disturb events. I mean like you can go online, and you can yell at them. I know I get a lot of it. So there's that. Okay. Meanwhile, the Democrats continue to proclaim that the attorney general of the United States. William bar is a liar, a brutal, terrible evil liar. So Nancy pool. Says the William bar light. What what did he lie about? She still cannot name single lie that William bar has told the attorney general of the United States fallen under fire for no apparent reason. He wrote a four page synopsis of the findings of the mullahs report. Then within six weeks, he released the entirety of the Muller report that's called transparency folks that ain't a cover up. Nonetheless, Democrats are going after William bar because they wish they wish that Robert Mueller had recommended prosecution. He did not and thus democrat William bar. Wuling bar was was what stood between President Trump and prosecution as I say if Muller wanted to recommend prosecution good of instead, he advocated he handed it over William bar, William bar said no appropriately I've read the report, but according to Nancy Pelosi, this makes William bar political hack an emissary of evil and Aligarh. Now, she believes that he's a perjurer. She can impeach him. Anytime. I don't see you're making any serious moves in that direction to you yesterday was quite a day. I've really lost sleep last night after watching over and over again, the testimony of the attorney general of the United. States. How sad it is. How sad it is. For us to see the top law enforcement officer in our country misrepresenting withholding the truth from the congress of the United States. The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the congress of the United States. That's a crime. Okay. Well, she's going to have to explain where the crime is. I think the democratic definition of crime, basically crap. I don't like well that in crime lady in a second. We'll get more on the Democrats attacking will William bar. Okay. So it's not just speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi who is openly suggested without any evidence at all that William bar committed perjury, which he did not it is also Ted lieu who is just a terrible congressperson suggesting that William bar, the attorney general is one of the most dangerous men in the country. Really? You mean that dorky lawyer is one of the most dangerous men in the country for giving you a report that sitting in front of you dolt? My goodness here is here's Ted lieu making case or turns your Bill bars. One of the most dangerous men in Washington DC for three reasons I intentionally mischaracterized the mullahs report, he was then towed by Robert Muller A, he mischaracterized Mullah report. And instead of college is he doubles down and continues mislead the American people second today. He acknowledged the will congress oversight responsibilities of congress and lawfully issued subpoenas and third right now he is suing to eliminate your healthcare coverage. Let's not forget right now he is suing on court to eliminate pre existing conditions healthier. He's just such nonsense. Here's the reality. Democrats are not going to do anything about William Barr. This is all sound signifying nothing. This is them whining and whining, and bitching and moaning because they didn't get what they wanted from Robert Muller, and they can't blame Robert Muller because they spent several years building up as the day hits MAC and who's going to save us all from President Trump Representative Akeem Jeffries of New York, let the cat out of the bag. He said, yeah, we're not jailing bar. So like all this talk about how we're gonna hold them in contempt and then throw. Jail. Yeah. That's not happening. How do you get this thing? Moving to your post fines, you suggest maybe even some of said jail time for the attorney general of the United States will jail time is not something that I believe is being seriously contemplated. And look we're gonna continue along track of trying to find common ground on behalf of the issues that would improve the lives of every day Americans while at the same time understanding that there's another lane which is going to require for congress to hold the administration accountable win it steps over the line. And we're not going to shirk that responsibility either. Okay. Well, they're not gonna shirt that response, except that there is no responsibility here because they're not gonna do anything. They're not interested in doing anything. So all of this is manufactured. Meanwhile, the House Judiciary committee is trying to get Robert Muller. They're in the wild hope that Robert Mueller will come in. And then say listen, I decided that I couldn't indict because the president the president. But secretly guy should impeach him. That's what they want from Robert Muller. I don't think Robert. Going to give that to them. Apparently NBC news NABC news are reporting that the committee is now speaking with Muller's team when it was previously dealing with the Justice department NBC reports that hearing has not been finalized to date was not set, but they're apparently negotiated with Muller to come testify. Well, I mean the networks I'm sure we happy with the ratings because that's exciting stuff. But we have we have Miller's thoughts in four hundred and fifty pages things longer than Tolstoy novel. We have all of his thoughts in hide them. They haven't been they haven't been hidden from you. They are publicly available. You can buy a print copy online right now at Amazon, this is all this is all silly talk. Now, the reason I think the Democrats are truly upset about a lot of this stuff is because their their new stories that are coming out pretty much every day now about the lengths to which the Hillary Clinton campaign was interfering with other countries in the election of two thousand sixteen the extents which the intelligence community was intervening with regard to election twenty sixteen. There's a story that have mentioned. Over the last couple of days from the New York Times in which the New York Times reports that the F B I sense yet. Another quote, unquote, spy another investigator posing as assistant to meet with George popadopoulos. According to the New York Times, there is a woman who posed as a as in a government invested as a research assistant shoes actually government investigator. She went to spy on George popadopoulos. She said her name was ROY Turk, and this this would be a spy being deployed to go talk with a member of the Trump campaign. Trump was never told about any of this. There will be investigations into the extent to which the intelligence community targeted members of the Trump campaign, whether Trump himself should have been told, and whether there was enough of a supportive evidentiary basis to suggest the use of informants and surveillance against people like Carter page and George popadopoulos. That inspector general report is set to come out. I believe in June. I think Democrats are fearful of that. I think Democrats are also fearful of new reports like this one that is coming out. According to Fox News Ukraine's embassy wrote that a Democratic National Committee insider reached out in two thousand sixteen seeking dirt on President Trump's team. According to a bombshell new report on Thursday that fueled Republic that further fueled Republican alligators. That Democrats were the ones improperly colluding with four agents during the campaign ambassador. Valery Chailly said DNC contractor Alexandra Lupu pushed for Ukraine's, then president petro Puerto shaneco to mention poem affords ties Ukraine publicly during a visit to the United States and so detailed financial information on his dealings in the country. According to the hill at the time Manafort was from embassy, it was Trump's campaign, chairman Chailly said in a statement, the embassy got to know, Mr. Lupu because of her engagement with Ukrainian and other diasporas in Washington DC and not in her DNC, capacity. We learned about her DNC involvement later, we were surprised to see zander's interest in Powell poem for its case. It was her own 'cause the embassy representatives unambiguously refused to get involved in any way as we were convinced that disease strictly US domestic matter. In other words, it looks like a DNC contractor slash operative was trying to get information for the twenty sixteen campaign on Paul Manafort now again, that's not collusion. It wasn't collusion. When from junior was talking with a Russian lawyer about getting on Hillary Clinton collusion. A quid pro quo or the organization of the release of material. But with that said is that just as bad as the Trump Tower meeting? I mean. Yeah. Kind of right. A minute is trying to get information from a foreign source about domestic political adversary. So Democrats are in for a rough ride here. I think and I think that they know it so that is probably why they're tempting to misdirect William bar. I don't think the next couple of months real well on the intelligence community. I don't think that they do a lot of wonders for the credibility of the Democratic Party and the intelligence community on any of this stuff. So that may be why they are trying to misdirect William bar, Robert Muller and all the rest of this stuff. Okay. Time for a little bit of mailbag because it is indeed a Friday. So we begin with laya says haven, a few friends, and I are planning a month long trip for Tober and at the end of our trip planning to visit Turkey, Lebanon, traveled all over the world with the exception to the Middle East. So when they said they wanted to visit I said I'd be on board. However, I heard you can't enter Lebanon, if you've been traveling to Israel, March under passport. I've never been there. I was curious the reason for this. And what your thoughts are on traveling there and Turkey when I'm a strong supporter of Israel. Thanks and love the show. So I am not sure what the actual rules are in Lebanon. I know that those rules do apply in places like Saudi Arabia. There are certain countries that refuse to acknowledge the existence of the state of Israel. Don't worry it's not anti-semitism to fail to acknowledge Jewish state. That exists. It is merely a form of anti Zionists not anti-semitism at all those rules, obviously are targeted toward Jews. That is the goal of them. Israel does not have similar rules with any country on planet earth. It's pretty amazing that that all of that is tolerated but soft bigotry of low expectations when it comes to radical Muslim leadership in that part of the world. Kyle says what is your arguments? People say the economy will crash after Trump because of his Reaganomics policies tax cuts trade relations etcetera is this possibility in your mind. Well, number one, they're very few communists who have been consistent in being able to predict ecconomic crashes. This is just a reality of the situation. I think people suspect there. Will be one in the sometime you're future simply because every eight to ten years in the United States. There is some sort of economic downturn. The last one was in two thousand eight it's now two thousand nineteen. So that means that we're probably do. But that's more of like an earthquake. Komen feeling that you get sitting on the porch. Right. That is not based on any economic criteria. I have no idea why you would say that Reaganomics type policies create recessions when Reagan type policies created the greatest peacetime expansion in the history of the United States economic expansion in the history of the United States even short-term downturns like like black Monday back in October of was in nineteen eighty-seven. Even that was quickly rectified the economy kept on growing, even the short-term downturn. In nineteen Ninety-one was reversed by the end of nineteen Ninety-one by the time nineteen ninety two election came about the economy was already moving forward again. So the idea that Reaganomics type policies what quashes economic growth know quashes economic growth. Downturns are unpredictable. Economic growth, however is predictably tied to. A business climate that is friendly toward business as opposed to heavy regulatory and tax base climate tends to quash growth. So we found out from Barack Obama keeps US German to be a better influence in defending spreading conservative ideas. How can an average conservative such as myself help change hearts and minds in my daily life. Well, a couple of things number one. You have to read and read and read you really do need to know the issues about what you speak second of all seek commonality and common definition before you start a conversation. The way to have a bad political conversation is for somebody to say something like, you're mean, you're cruel. And then you say, no, I'm not meaning that's not a conversation. That's an argument. We have to do is say, I need you to define meanness and cruelty. So that we can have a definition of what exactly we talking about? Because I don't believe your definition. If your definition as he just don't like me. Well, you know, then we can have a conversation going to have a conversation. We have to get to common out commonality of terms. It's funny. I have conversations with folks all the time on a variety of issues, particularly on the other side of the aisle and to use an example, I didn't I didn't interview. With I believe it was salon. I think and the and the reporter over at salon was extremely was extremely antagonist. The the entire interview is basically this person trying to make an argument over it was not interviews. It was an argument, and you can read the transcript of it. They wouldn't release the audio may the reporter look pretty bad. That is my opinion we asked for the release of the audio. They would not do it. And then I had a similar conversation about my book with Sean Elliott vox who happens to be an honest reporter who's read my book and who disagrees with my book. But because we were having a conversation that was productive. He would ask my opinion on something out. Ask him for a clarification of definition. I respond would ask for clarification my definitions. He would respond. This is what is called the nice conversation. You can do that specifics. Help conversations move forward. This is true in marriage. It's touring child-rearing. It's true in parenting. It's true. An all areas of life specificity and clarity is what should be seeking in conversation. If you wish to have a conversation broad-based terminology about which. There is no common. Understanding. That's have an argument. Sarah says Ben what books do you recommend to learn more about these really Palestinian conflict? Well, there's a great book that I've recommended on the show by David Brock reclaiming Israel's history, it's very short two hundred pages. And that gives you a pretty good background on what you need to know. There's also a book by ally barred commits and facts that I always recommend mainly because it's bite sized. It has a myth, and then it will have the facts, and that's like a page long answers. Most of your questions about it. I'd start with those two books, and then if you want sort of longer form histories, there's a book by Howard soccer about called the history of China's them that that is worth reading Benjamin Netanyahu actually wrote a great book called durable. Peace back in the nineteen nineties that talks about kind of long term history of Israel and the Palestinians and more than Israel and Palestinians, Israel and the world around it because the Palestinians as a cohesive entity really did not exist as a cohesive entity until the creation of the state of Israel, all the Palestinians Palestinian actually referred to read the Palestine post was referring to the Jerusalem Post is referring to Jews. House tinians as a specific political entity. We're not created really until nineteen forty eight and everybody was considered Siri not say that they weren't indigenous to the area the Palestinians indigenous to the area, but they consider themselves Syrian origin or Jordanian or Saudi. So it is worth reading all of those books and give you more. If you're interested. Anthony says haven is there ever an argument from a conservative side for implementation of Kenyan style economic policy. Also, do you believe we are in the late stage capitalist system, currently the the phrase late-stage capitalist is very irritating because there's either capitalist or is there. There's non capitalist. The idea that capitalism is moving toward an end game where it falls apart that is a Marxist construct that I just don't believe Martinez suggests that eventually history will end with the with the seizure of the means of production by the workers, and that has not happened, historically. Instead, what has happened historically is a forcible seizure of the means of production by governments and then the collapse of that system repeatedly. Because that's. Sucks in his terrible for human beings. So I don't really believe in the phrase Leitch stage capitalist. I believe in in economic that. There is such thing as top down economic fascism or corporatism and that exists, but I don't think that's capitalism. I think people tend to conflate a lot of terminology as far as the the argument for implementation Keynesian style economic policy, which I assume would mean seizure of money from people who are more wealthy giving it to people who are poor said they can start the inva-. So they can start spending that money that spending is better than saving. No, I disagree with Keynesianism. There's a great book. By the author of economic one Henry has a four hundred fifty page book that that really breaks down Keynes's work at length. It's very detailed. So if you're still in that that's available. Richard says Hello, Mr. Shapiro. I've heard several times you see the congress has subpoena power. Where's it say that in the constitution is a part of the necessary and proper powers will congress can pass legislation that allows them to subpoena than the other branches have the power to resist a subpoena, and then the judiciary gets to decide whether the subpoena in fact, hold so they have to pass a piece of legislation. You're correct. There's nothing in the constitution of the United States that specifically refers to subpoena power. But there's no doubt that congress does have investigative powers under the constitution. That's how they keep the other branches in check, Michael Ben, do you think there's any Republican who if they were run could beat Donald Trump in the primary maybe Gimenez Mitt Romney or Ben Shapiro. No. The answer is no I think Donald Trump would win every primary. He's the incumbent president of the United States. There has yet to be an incumbent president of the United States who loses in the primaries. Even LBJ not lose in the primaries. He just came close to losing in the prime in a couple of early primaries and decided not to run. So that is that is not the same thing. The strongest primary contenders have never taken out an incumbent. President is never happened Hilty Jackson's has been totally agree with your assessment of endgame. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate being a huge marvel fan. I still enjoyed it. Totally fair. I said if you're marvel fan, and you really into it, and he likes it was twenty one movies leading up to a vendor's endgame, and you're looking for Easter eggs, and it's on the stellar for you and fan service, totally fine with that. I personally thought it was bloated. I thought that what they did. With the main characters didn't make any sense. I had a lot of critiques men game. I listen I wanted to enjoy it the same as everybody else things gonna make jillion dollars. I mean, it's already racked up. I think it's I by the end of first weekend. It had racked up almost one point five billion dollars worldwide. I wish I could enjoy it like everybody else. I just have critiques Jackson's has. It was wondering how you have constructed the final battle personally, I would have just had airmen Thor and captain America fight Thanos and his generals. Yes. This is correct. The battle that very end of the vendors endgame should not have taken place. Meaning that it is obvious that Daniels is facing off against them. And so as I mentioned in my review of ventures endgame yesterday on my show on the podcast. The biggest problem with vendors. Endgame is one of the problems my business partner. Jeremy boring points this out is that the relative powers of the various characters make no sense. So in the first of interest Infinity war fan Ohs is barely able to hold off just Thor and he's not the Infinity gauntlet while he's doing that. And the Infinity gauntlet is super duper powerful. Well, at the end of ventures endgame spoilers here. Okay. Guys. You're all warned at the ends of ventures at the end of vendors endgame Thanos does not have the gauntlet. He's just a big guy. And he's a big guy and he's holding off simultaneously Thor and captain America and airman. He's holding all of them off. And captain America has has the hammer. He's got all these things. And still is holding them off without the Infinity gauntlet. How how so you'd have to construct the final the final battle scene better. Also, there's something inherently a little bit unfair about a three on one. So the only way to make that fair if he does have the Infinity, for example, also having captain marvel come in, and she's and she's able to basically take on alone. Like, none of these relative power arrangements. Make any sense why she so much more powerful than Thor. The God of the God of thunder. Why none of this again, the internal logic doesn't make a lot of sense. I think there was way to construct it where it makes sense. For example. Tony stark is wounded that would make sense or captain America is finally feeling his age. This would make sense or you or you have or you have Thor who is so broken that he can't fight properly that would make something like their ways to construct this. But I just don't think it was done. It turned into kind of the same big beat him up. Smashing battle. You have at the end of. Every one of these marvel movies Williams's Hayden said many times on your show your huge sports fan. I'm curious what your favorite teams are from the major sports NBA NFL MLB. So number one, and h l should be included the major sports number two. I don't know. I just didn't grow up with hockey. I wish I had because every time I go to a hockey game. It's awesome. So I am a I am a Blackhawks fan, you know, sort of peripherally, but NBA NFL in MLB NBA Celtics fan. I know I live in Los Angeles makes no sense. I'm Celtics fan because they picked up all of my fathers sports allegiances because like religion fans for sports teams is picked up from your parents. This is why my kids will be White Sox fans, even though they're two generations removed from Chicago. So the NBA I'm Celtics fan because my parents went to school in Boston. I and the Chicago Bulls really were not a thing when my when my dad was growing up, so he was a Celtics fan partially Celtics red arbox was the owner of was the owners lash general manager of the Boston Celtics and was an early integrator of the NBA, for example, was Jewish. It's. The NFL Chicago Bears fan picked up all the Chicago allegiances. I know it's a terrible fate to be Chicago Bears fan and Mitch Trubisky. Yeah. Okay. And and MLB I am a huge Kaga White Sox. If you wish to hear my thoughts about the Chicago White Sox, all you have to do is go to Amazon dot com. My father, and I wrote a full book about the two thousand five Chicago White Sox championship season, we traced every single game of the season. And it's a series of letters from me to my dad and back and forth. It's really a lot of fun. It's called say it, so you can go check that out at Amazon dot com. Yeah. I'll deal haven question. How would you respond to the argument regarding abortion than life and death situation? The life of the mother takes precedence over the unborn. Baby. Admitting to a certain extent of the two lives are not the equal at that point unborn versus born while I myself have a bunch of issues with what is extrapolated from this point. I'm having a hard time, just crediting the logic. Well, the logic mix makes cents that you prefer the life of the mother so long as the baby is not born yet because there is a difference between unborn and born with regard to choice of life. But that does not mean that Nevada you can just kill. All the born. This is what people seem to get wrong. You don't actually have to make the argument that an embryo is of the exact same value. You don't actually you can make the argument. You don't have to make the argument that the embryo is of the exact same value as a thirty year old person in order to make the argument that embryo must be preserved. You don't have to make that argument because it is not a choice. The choice is between your inconvenience and the embryo or your your wishes and the embryos existence that that is not the same choice. You I what people do is they create the false choice between the existence of an adult life and an unborn life. And then the next thing that they do is they say that all cases are that choice, which they are not. So it's just bad logic. I don't think you have to accept even the you're not even have to accept the premise that all life is innate -ly of equal value to ex-, especially you know, in early stages of you don't have to you can accept it. Again, you can say embryos exactly the same as a as a fully grown human being. But you don't. Have to order to make the argument for the preservation of the embryo, that's historically been the Jewish argument, for example. Okay. Time for a quick thing. I like, and then we'll do a quick thing. I hate and then we'll get outta here. So things I like so yesterday was Yoma Showa talked at length about holocaust remembrance day. And there's a great video yesterday from L all the is Rayleigh national airline there the plane, which is full of Jews going to Israel onion Showa. They were flying over Germany and the in guy got on the one of the flight attendants got on the intercom. And he starts telling everybody about how his all of his grandparents were slaughtered in the camps. He gets on the intercom. And he says, and if they could see now that there is an airplane with a Jewish star flying over Germany, imagine. I mean, imagine the miracle that it really is a miraculous miraculous thing how bad was the holocaust. The holocaust was so horrible in terms of human populations that there are still you Jews on earth eighty years. After the holocaust and the world before the holocaust and somebody who's word. It's an amazing amazing. And then all the people on the plane start singing together and dancing in the aisles. It's pretty it's pretty amazing. Well, I was asked yesterday by somebody for movies that concern the holocaust. I mentioned some yesterday. One of the ones that I mentioned that has been wildly underrated. There was a movie TV movie that was done about the Warsaw ghetto uprising, which is one of the great inspiring stories of Jewish history. A small band of barely armed Jews had been cut off by the outside world holding up for a month against the mechanization of German military forces. It is it is a strong argument, by the way that people should be armed because armed Jews held off the Nazis for a month in the middle of complete privation without proper ammunition without proper firearms. There's very good movie called uprising as I say, here's a little bit of the trailer with Donald Sutherland and Hankas area. Largest armies in the world. Have not been able to defeat the nuts. What's pictu- think that end Fulham unprinted Jewish citizens? The bums to prevail. Three hundred thousand soldiers have been sent to Treblinka at this Kemp or simply been. These were innocent people doing the face of his medley. We live the hands to go and pray for them aside. The we must something other than our face. Don't let them know that you are in the movies uprising, you can go check that out believe it's only available on DVD can order from Amazon. It's it's certainly worth the watch. It's quite good. In fact, I find the Warsaw ghetto uprising story. So important that I'm actually working on musical about with with my father, my father rights musicals. I wrote the libretto my dad writes music, so we're hoping to bring that I think probably sometime next year in any case that okay time for a quick thing that I hate. So Burger King all these corporations. Now feel the need to social Justice message. I am a huge advocate of people who have mental illness need to seek help people who have mental illness need to seek healthy. I mental illness runs in my family people who have a problem need to seek help. They need to find somebody who can help them Burger King runs commercial about mental illness, and it makes no sense at all. It just doesn't make any sense. Here is Burger King's weird commercial, which I mean, I guess capitalism for the win. But here's Burger King trying to push depression. Eating is that the idea here. Not everybody wakes up happy. Sometimes he feels had scared crappy. Alliances that she let me feel my way. Kinda dakhil. Can't wait till this close says he's a bunch of little little poetic statements about feelings. And then the chorus is I just want you to let me feel my way, you can feel your way. Okay. But what you really should do if you're depressed in your down. You're having a problem is you go see somebody and do something about it Burger King's eventual solution to all of this is that if we just let you feel however you wanna feel without trying to intervene, and we then we give you a bunch of meals that you're gonna eat. So we're gonna like heart your arteries, that's the proper solution is free to feed like very weird. Very weird take very very odd. Take by the way for folks are depressed. One of the greatest methods of of trying to fight depression. Something called cognitive behavioral therapy in which the goal is not to let you feel your way the goal is to try to explain to you how you can intervene in the chain of your own feelings and stop yourself from feeling away. You don't want to feel. Burger can make money off depression eating and then virtuous signaling about it welcomed if there is a such thing as late stage capitalism. This this'll be look like, man. All right. So we'll be back here later today with two additional hours. Plus, remember, you should subscribe and get the Sunday special day earlier, Nikki Haley this weekend. That's pretty awesome stuff. Go check. We have big a bunch of big name guests who are coming up. Also, we have a very special episode that I can't wait to tell you about the Sunday special coming up next month. It's going to be just fantastic. I've been doing interviews for a week. It's so good. We'll get to that. But go subscribes to get all that stuff. I'm Ben Shapiro. This is the Ben Shapiro show. This is the Ben Shapiro show executive producer, Jeremy boring, senior producer Jonathan. Hey. Our supervising producer is Mathis Glover, and our technical producer is Austin Stevens. Edited by Adam sigh of its audio is mixed by micrometer Herron makeup by just over production. Assistant Nik Sheehan. The Ben Shapiro show is daily wire production copyright, daily wire. Twenty nineteen. He goes over on the Matt wall show today Facebook has stepped up its censorship efforts. So we'll discuss the great purge of supposedly dangerous people of people who all reside coincidentally. I'm sure on one side of the political spectrum. And we'll also talk about the ethical and legal implications of what they're doing. Also, we're now being told that it is white supremacist to try to be objective. Objectivity is white supremacy. So I want to talk about how the left has made white supremacy into a completely meaningless concept. We'll talk about that and other topics that over on the wall show.

041219 Part 1

"Welcome to the ace and TJ radio family family. We were talking about these elaborate hoaxes that people put together some of these are pretty smart like this girl said once their name, but she said on the day before New Year's Eve, I plotted a completely fake conversation with the guy over techs. I made a fake contact in my phone, then I had an entire back in forth until asking myself to go to New Year's Eve date, then I screen shotted that instead it to my ex and said ha- new years is is going to be even better this year. You call me the next day apologized and said he was a wreck when he saw it. So it worked it worked worked all that matters. Okay. Wow. Yeah. That that's smart though. If you're a psycho. Geez. No. I'm kidding now. That's I think that one was harmless. It's not like the the guy that started the the whole thing here. Trying to play he planted drugs on his ex girlfriend's new boyfriend allegedly. Yeah. This one was no harm. No, okay. What about what about this one TJ? I'd like to remain anonymous if this goes on the air years ago in high school this girl on my team and her boyfriend broke up. Then he started dating meet the girl on my team went online and registered a fake phone number and use that number to send herself death threats. She then took the messages to the principal of the school, and the resource officer and told them that I was the one behind the fake phone number Sydney, her these death threats all in every get her boyfriend back who I was seeing at the time it didn't work and eventually she got called for lying. Well. But she gave it the old the old college try, and yeah. I think in some of these situations people need help yet. You know? I mean once they're found out. Hey, I don't have cancer. That was just doing that to give them a boyfriend back. Okay within then you gotta go to therapy. Amen. Yeah. Yes. Or they are they ought to make them go through horrendous cancer treatments. Okay. You're going to get some chemo today, and you're going to get you going get some radiation and all this because you will show you what what you're lying about. And see how that makes you feel. That's genius. So mom that fate cancern. And ran the go fund me awhile back and got a hundred and fifty thousand dollars or something like that. And then she tried to to to just slip away with all the money, go through the treatment. Maker understand exactly how -fensive that is. That's genius TJ. So. Let's get that in the court. TJ Reagan's connected funny. Funniness is the ACT J show. Yeah. I can fast. We can hear each other. But not you. Well, that's going to be a problem. So started the day. All great. Yeah. Four. Hello.

I can't hear you gonna either just don't contain myself that new BTS at Halsey song is coming up. Sometimes Reagan's does thing things on our social media assassin. I think that's genius. Then sometimes he does things. And I think that's smart. Why did you do that at that? Same moment. Why would he tweeted out? We're gonna play that new BTS. Hey BT army. We're playing that newbie holiday song tomorrow morning at six twenty five eastern. I saw it. That's what we should do watch this explode. And it's just yes of tweets and of that easy.

And then our program director was texting me going like this is this is weird. I'm sorry. But it's it's a big deal for them. And on the internet. It's kind of the biggest thing this morning. But I was I was got it this morning. I was like I wanna hear this song and check it out. And I did. And then I start looking our Twitter. And it's just a it's it's literally thousands of re tweets tweets people saying they've downloaded different apps to hear it and so forth. And so on it's crazy. You just the sheer numbers because that's they're the biggest they may be the biggest musical act in the entire world at the moment for sure, but the South Korean boy band is k pop is what the caller if you're not familiar with BT 's did asong with hall Z that was released at midnight five no just about an hour ago. A really I thought it was at midnight. I did too because I listen to it until I was driving in. I didn't I didn't not realize it was that it must have. Just come out and listen literally about an hour. Oh, call. But. Yeah, I they always really stuff at midnight. So I didn't think anything of it until I went to pull it this morning. I went oh, it's not it's not going live until five eastern. So in it is just the biggest thing in the world right now.

Thanks to Papa John's Papa John's delicious, pizzas sponsor, the ace and TJ app. But we got a message of from a lady that says, hey, please. Keep me anonymous do adult men right in bubble letters. She said I thought that was just a teenage girl thing, but I was just cleaning out someone's office and found his quote, unquote doodles, and they're just bubble. Let her drugs to it's creepy and weird to me. I don't think so unless it's like a graffiti style type bubble letter that he's practicing on. I don't know like a bug. Circles as the eye on that console. A picture of it. But that's the way I understand it. That's not for a man. No, I wouldn't have thought. So either. Debbie. Let's say you were going out with a guy SAS, and you stop by his place, and you're hanging out and you look down. There was a pad on the table somewhere.

You dating what if it said like Bob loves SAS in big bubble that oh. Oh. Different there. No, it's still. Thank you need to grow up. You have anything Riggins at if a girl comes over might make her think is there has been here. Do you have a sister? Do you have a girlfriend or anything like that? Well, no, I have my childhood stuffed animal that I've hidden so well that it will never be found in my apartment. And that's like the big thing whenever I move. I'm like where do I put this because I don't have a part to throw it away. But I don't know what to do with it. But so I like I stuff it away. Like, it's terrible. So you don't pull it out anywhere. You don't know talk to it or hold it or it's hidden away its head what I want you throw it away because I don't have the heart to it has history. It's it's my one it was the one stuffed animal that I had the you could think like the girl would think you have a kid. It's just been greater you don't wanna see a grown man with a stuffed animal. But what are you do with it? Should I throw it away? I was kinda had hoped. So I was like maybe I'll give it to my kid. But I was like do they want? You know, now, I'm thirty one. Do they wanna thirty year old? Yeah. It's clear. I mean, that'd be cool though. If you if you save amnesty for my kids, then we have a reason to save it as passing it down from one generation to the next that's my justification for. But it is weird. Like like, do you have a stuffed animal? It's like a whole thing. Time. I go to my mom's house every time in the closet, and what used to be my bedroom. There are several boxes boxes full of trophies and stuff. And she said, I would you don't you do something with those trophies taken with you? I'm not taking them with me. I don't have any use for them. Just throw them away. I can't tell them why you need to throw away. Yeah. I should say what am I gonna do with them? Go throw them away throw them away. But I don't know if I have hard to throw them away. Yeah. But that's not something you can pass down. You have a good excuse to pass up the down with your little stuffed animal.

We all can speak Korean or we wouldn't be able to do that. But love to hear your thoughts. Where's Halsey in that? She doesn't ever own verse on it.

Season which is going on right now. It's kinda the same way whenever our manager. Adam comes into town big except it's not birthday, lunches and celebrations. It's meeting celebrations. So there is a meeting back to back with meetings lunch meeting dinner meeting breakfasts, he has meetings with people. It's just it's like two days of of meeting binges. Right. So.

So I ordered my usual, captain Morgan and diet coke. The guy brings the drinks over. Adam looks at his immediately goes that's not what I wanted. And he's from New York, he grew up in Manhattan. And he's he lives in the suburbs. Now in Connecticut. But he's not a typical means Rueda. What are you doing? You does not my one. So what are we not that type of New Yorker? But he is more Kurt in his normal way of speaking people, slightly abrasive. It gets at times. He backs up jumps back like this like he's been shocked. And he goes that's not what I ordered the guy hadn't even put it that. That's not what I ward and what is wrong. How does he know that the fast because I didn't really hear what he had ordered? And he's our the sauvignon blow. That's not. That's not what I ordered because. Oh, I am. So sorry. He sits my drink down goes back over to the bar. I taste my drink. And I know that's not captain more. It was it was some kind of rum sometimes they'll substitute. This this Puerto Rican spice room called sailor, Jerry, it's a different brand. And it doesn't taste the same. As people say it does. But it doesn't and it was something along those lines. But I just knew it wasn't captain Morgan's. The guy came back brings the same glass of wine back to Adam. And I tell you about my drinking goes, okay? Well, all right. Let me see let me check on that. And Adam goes, that's still that's still not what I ordered. That's not. That's not sauvignon block. Oh, you in the guy with the exact in. And the guy goes the bartender saying it was he goes. Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine. This is red wine. It's not it's not even look importing on one side of the menu said white was that said Ray because that's it right there. So is it the so the guy goes back and he finally comes by. He says, you're right. That isn't playing captain Morgan, whatever you want me to guess just bring me bigger, and he sits that wind down and Adams like, okay. Thank you. Thank you that that looks that looks like what I ordered. Thank you know, problem guy walks off. We're talking. And Adam takes a sip of that wine. And he goes, oh my God. That is way too. Sweet. I am not drinking. No. I can't drink. It's just way too. Sweet. I it's supposed to be a little drier than that. I just. I said, please don't send that back. Don't tell him. You don't you know, he goes, well, a again drink in his there's another kind there's a New Zealand kind. And then there's a he said the New Zealand kinds. Probably would I said all right. Well, this do this way. Tell the guy look this is too sweet for me. It's not your fault. It's mine. Leave this on my Bill. And if you bring me the one from New Zealand that might be better. And I said then most time they'll say, okay. Well, no, I'm going to take it off. Anyway. So the guy they do swap out. The Bill comes later, and I'm actually signing the Bill he says let me see that chick looked at it. And he goes down the thing. And he goes, well, he charged me for both glasses of wine. That was a great idea. Well, really your way didn't work at all. Okay. Sorry. Oh, oh my God. That is way too. So it was just like so New York. Oh, oh, what am? I what am I assure cube? And then did you immediately jump in? Please. Please that I'm begging don't they go back again. Please don't make me look bad. This is the ace and TJ show.

Coming up on the ACT J show the world famous Friday morning, we give last official kicking off your weekend in thirty minutes. As and TJ. Man, something very sweet happen. This could have happened will in a in an official southern measurement of time. It could have happened here while back. I don't know. I could have missed it. When it all happened should Regan's. Will let me know ministers. Do. Well, it was last Saturday. So not that old almost two weeks who cares? I bet we there's a guy named Jay sing with an eight sing with an h at the end just sing he moved from from India to Ohio twelve years ago. He owns seven eleven. He caught a teenager stealing from store, and he noticed that he was acting suspicious and then called him out on it. And he told one of the employee's to call nine one one because shoddy fire burning on a dance floor. The kid ask if he could just put stuff back and leave and not have to go to jail, and the and the owner Jason put it on the counter would have been cooler if you said put it up put them on the glass in not appropriate, right? That would be you got there. Put them on the glass. It was all food. He asked the kid why he was stealing the kid said because he's hungry. It was trying to feed his younger, brother. So j told the cops not to come, and then he filled up a whole bag with food and gave it to the kid a customer named Cedric Bishop was there say they saw the whole exchange made him pretty emotional. Then he posted about it on the Facebook. And the news just took off from the jaycees it he just didn't want to ruin the kid's life over it. And in India, it's considered a blessing to give food to someone who's hungry, and then watch their expression when they find out how spicy. This curry is. Yeah. I would see him take this one step further. Maybe hire him you find a way to make it work for both of them. That'd be great. Now. Look, I don't always, you know, as a matter of fact, I hate seeing the negative in a situation like this. But I'm also a realist. And. Poor Jay with his heart in the right place could have done something a little bit differently. But now, the news is out Jada press charges. That that seven eleven won't press charges, and they'll give you food. They'll give you whatever you're trying to steal or you just go in there and ask him he'll give it. But what a great story. I mean what? He thought he didn't want to ruin them kids life, and I get I love that part of it. But now, you know, he's going to be bombarded with people coming in there asking for handouts. And he's going to be, you know, having to stop people from stealing. And then they'll say, well, you know, you let that other guy get away with it. I'm just I just need a car. Come on full of that took you took your car because it was parked out there now needed a ride for my little, brother. Honey. Bun was great Subaru would be. Coming up on now. Trending with Riggins. There's one thing that is dominating the internet this morning. We will play it for you in less than ten minutes in now. Turn to hear connected funny with your funniest friends. Next. It's not the news. But it is the stuff that you'll really be talking about the rest of the day. Dow trending with Riggins on the ace and TJ show. We'll get to the biggest thing on the internet this morning by far it is dominating. But I did everybody see that Wendy Williams is filing for divorce from her husband. Oh, I didn't see that yesterday. Our dear friend, Wendy Williams. It looks like she is getting divorced from her husband. Kevin who was here? They were just in our studio what a month ago. And they looked thickest thieves and she's been caught by paparazzi with her wedding ring on saying like, listen, you've been married I've been married for over twenty years. He's my lover is my best friend all these things. And it looks like she filed for filed the papers yesterday onset because they own a production company together. Does that lead us to believe that the rumors are true that the other woman who had the baby is actually that that he has fathered that child? I think there's a lot of evidence. Well, no, I shouldn't even say that. I think a lot a lot of people are believe that concluding that. Yeah. Yeah. Well, we'll tell you one really really good thing about her husband in no matter what comes out of that. He may have done her wrong or whatever one positive thing. Which is what I always try to find is that he thought I was hilarious. So at least we know that he's not absent when it comes to having a sophisticated sense of humor. That's the main always try to find the good in people. No matter what that one silver lining of good fair. That's very fair. I hope they put that in the divorce papers get thought TJ was fun. Scooter Braun who manages our Guerande Justin beaver like a ton of people tweeted out, y'all aren't even ready for Coachella which starts tonight in ruins through next weekend. Leading people to believe that this might be the comeback for Justin Bieber will he perform onstage. Justin Bieber was on Instagram saying, I can't wait for the festival this year. I hope it's good.

But it also includes a new single that was released at five this morning, and we have been inundated with requests the plate. So this is the new BT on with alsi. It's called boy with love. He doesn't have over oversold only sees Baco kind of she's in the video. They do have a song on the album that was written by Ed Sheeran. And they're going to be performing on SNL widely regarded as one of the biggest bands in the world right now. So and I'll tell you if you watch the video these boys can dance, I've never seen anybody dance. But it is literally of the top ten trending items on Twitter right now. I'm looking at it. All tin.

It's kind of like, I don't know about you. But I I grew up like renting stimpy, and I'm not saying they're the same. But it was a lot of adult innuendo in that show. Yeah. I had a T shirt in high school that said reddened pimp, and I got kicked out of class turn inside out. Oh, it's certain. So, but I mean it had Ren and stimpy, but Glenn was like the skinny one rents ran ran was like a Hooker. And the other one was like, oh, say red and pimping. As one. All right, man. So yes. So that was it just some other stuff that I guess we miss but. Yeah. So anyway, common commentary, all right. This rettig. Jump ahead. You got it wrong. Autism. This is all Mike's fall talk about black woman hair. Do not know informed. Fucking under soapies topa do rag. I told you what I wanna see no show. That'd be terrible UK straight a dread though. But you can have an afro. So that doesn't make any sense. Afro, she does it's not like a full fees. He did the fist. David fromm by. Is that a common be that you want to read? Yes. In Rettig badly moving on. From ready to do this call. I'm unmodern media. Is tethered. But he was like, hey, guys. I really love the show. I'm not saying I'm not saying you do this often. Because he was he was man on this comment. He like, I'm not. Okay. Hey, guys. I love the show. I'm not saying you do this often. But can you cut out the look 'isms in the height 'isms like us?

And that's not like a like a common thing that we. I'm looking looking. I just thought it was so fucking. I know. I saw it somewhere audit. I can't remember because it's not just already I think he might have atmospheres on Twitter. I saw it somewhere else. This is all about so no, I just said I'll somewhere. I knew I saw it somewhere else. Just can't remember where you did he call himself on modest media as funny. So this is clearly only about Sophie's. I don't know why he wrote to all of us. See I'll why the fucking damn share. Sophie, this is getting ridiculous down red. Is he show already? Right, y'all punks man for real. But look is is discriminatory treatment towards people considered physically unattractive. So that's only Sophie can't be ugly. Only one I talk shit about ugly people they had that discussion about how you're so inclusive. Where I said something about the ugly negative and how they. So he's clearly ugly by we're gonna. God it was like, yeah, I'm not dealing with this chick. She's fucking ugly. So I don't trust you'd be like that's just fucked up. And there's no reason that guys treating women like see media. We got some stuff we need. We need to talk about these topics where having okay? Today. So. I think it was on one episode. We and knowledge that John singleton was wasn't doing. Well. And we have received news that he has passed at age of fifty one. So very impactful in terms of a lot of great movies and actors and stuff that we've we've has so. Yeah. So anybody got anything they want to share about that? I, you know, I hope we like not all people be I've been seeing on social media a lot like people saying, oh, man. He he made a lot of black classes like I want to take them out of the black cl- like he may classic movies. Like, I don't want to. I don't wanna just keep them in debt black, quote unquote, black classic films like he may great classic movie. So that's all I wanna say this rested. He gave us some gym, man. Like back in the day. Did you know that boys in the hood guy put into I want to say like? I know I'm misspeaking. So I'm just kind of generalized, but like either museum or like until like the hall of fame or something like that where it's like, it's immortalize. Now. Like that. Let me look this up because we talked about it on. But I thought it was a more allows because it's a foam though, now like like now this this is like little spouse. So disrespected mean, though. He's on modest media today. Moralize because it's a. But yeah, that's all I just wanna say like, let's not just put them in that box like do boxes that classic. But don't have jam box in black clan. Disrespect which you be. Yeah. I haven't heard about the other. I might have. I may I forgot who's the other pass Chewbacca. Oh, we'll. Yeah. Peterman who played Baca he passed away. So that's really sad. The really kind of interesting to me is about a year ago friend of mine really close friend of mine passed away. He was in the five. Oh, I which is like a a Star Wars group or they dress up in these cost in the costumes wherever they make their own costumes, and they'll go into charity work and stuff, but they also do conventions and Peter Mayhew tweet it out about my friend passing. And this is just odd that almost a year later or little bit over a year later, he passes away to so it says, but yeah, recipes pure may I never met him. I've been in places where he was. But I was just too cheap to go pay the money to meet people. But I've heard he's an extremely nice person. So yeah, meet them. Yeah. If you go to like Star Wars celebration. Yeah. You gotta pay money. Like I wanted to meet fucking Billy. Dee he was at one of them and this motherfucker one one hundred dollars. I didn't know that. All right now, you just you just. Right. Shake your fucking hand. But they didn't do like like VIP package packages. Installing. See I would think that's when I that's how people paid us EP or for the IP VIP's. That's what I'm saying seven hundred. But then just to meet them. They're gonna target anywhere between fifty and a hundred dollars. Like, I think I think Mark Hamill in them. Not Mark Hamill. Sorry was either. I forget what everyone I was at. But I know Carrie Fisher was there. And I think she was only like fifty. But I know I remember that Billy was more. And I was like, I'm not paying more money to fucking meet Billy. Dee think Carrie Fisher, even though I do regret not being Carrie Fisher. Is he's passed anyway recipes pyramid here. All right moving on. So. James Madison, high school has a new dress code for parents. Parents are no longer permitted on school grounds. Wherein saddened caps or bonnets herald. But Djaama's were leggings anything revealing such as local top, saggy pants short shorts. Also. The look Mike is so here's the thing. So. Goping you'll kill looking like that. Nowhere. The head of it looks nice. When I heard about the dress code. I thought it was just for students. I didn't notice was. Yes. Correct. And then I started reading. Track. It. So you'll keep this over here all day on the grounds. They will have her on. I got was it. Due to a medical problem. I thought you had to pick her up early, and they would literally not permit her on the on the because of how she was dressed. Crazy. You can't let me sit up that is legal. I know you can do that. That's what. It should be legal, man. The. Few said because you're bald. Go ahead rap. Mike, my spices. Jamaica. Ken. I mean. You can't keep somebody's kid from them. If you if they have to be picked up due to like, allergic reaction or medical emergency. Or even if you gotta take them to the Graham their grandma's house. Or you know, what I'm saying? What about outside of that? What do you mean outside? He just picking them regularly just to pick them up. Bullshit. I'm also. Yeah. Like if I got to pick my kid up, even if I don't the fuck you, Tom. I can't come on the school grounds of my kid is there because I got a fucking. Hey, kiss my ass racist bullshit. I see somebody tweet. I did see somebody tweet that they had to go pick up their son up. They had to go pick their son up from. I think either daycare or something like that. But apparently you'd have to call ahead or else, you're literally not permitted to take them out early or something. So is that is that a thing to like you have to call ahead. And because I don't. You know, what is interesting is that you're trying to give them address coat to pick up their kids? What do you do when they're at home because I'm sure they dress like because one of the things she. I don't think saying that we're trying to set a standard, and we have hostile, and you should have standards. Right. So if you're trying to a standard standard for them just to pick up the kid like at the end of the day. They're still going to be at home wearing all of the stuff that you just said, they couldn't come mother fucking job to set a standard for another adult. I understand that. But but that's where the policy kind of falls apart. Don't make sense like years. That's where it falls apart. From the first letter of the first one. Just say like you can't apply this universally to that child. So it was like, okay. So what five ten minutes you want them to come? In sundays. Right. I know why you think you should be legal while you think that trolling around. I'm not serious, man. No. I mean because I mean people where would they they wear, and I I haven't seen could you imagine? If you like we're just dying like playing basketball or something, and you go pick up your you try to pick up your son from school. They're like, nah, not with the basketball shorts dog. Come at the end. Why why do you get what pajamas outside? The likes. You know what I'm saying? Like as long as it's not like if you're wearing some lingering. I see. Who's going to do that? But I mean. This is America never know. But that's still bullshit. That's great night. Is it is you can't you can't look a grown, man or woman should have to fight. I'm sure the kids appreciate the though. Why? Hilter which always parents certain type of way, but I don't know black thing. When I was in grade school. It was like if your parents called you to the office to like for early release or something they would never actually come to the classroom to get you, right? They would buzz you in and be like, hey, come to the office. You would walk into the office in your parents. Day, man. Yeah. Also my role. Joe's come my family. But yeah. Like a lot of families though. Yeah. That is only one school. There was a county was at one school or account. It's just James Madison high school wasn't that. She's out of there who she the principal. She's out of her fucking. I don't think is their responsibility to you know. Regulate that you know. Although I understand it. But it's not there. It's not there. People got going on. Yeah. Especially like the bun. It's in the head wraps because I don't like stuff need to be rep. Yeah. I don't I don't like my daughter or my wife like go out house pundits on and stuff. Like that. Always stays onto like house like that. She likes to personally. I it depends on what you're doing. Even go business like at a Bank or user, I have. You go to WalMart and go get some, you know, what I'm saying, whatever. Yeah. Who cares? And in my other thing is right. Like, let's say like there's an emergency like a family emergency. You got rollers in your head some happens. You gotta go. Get your kid. You take all his down gets. So when they get I'm sorry. Go ahead. Well, I was gonna ask a quick question. So when they when they get there with the wraps on do they say, you can't have your kid or we'll bring your kid to you. What do they say? I don't. Think they bring their kids. Can I don't think you can pick them up? She won't let you on a on a property at all like you. You can't know Bush it we'll have to research on our own. They like if you don't want. If you don't want the pairs get onto the campus like that. I get that. But that should not impede me from getting my child because you know, you don't know what the fuck is happening in my life. I mean, my K right now, we need the bounce right? No. I was trying to get a finance it to to my question. But yeah, I mean, you know, so so yeah. So I mean, so it was a black racist. Who my God? First of all don't ask that question before disclosing what she was about to say you. Come on. Now. She's a black woman who's a a principle who enforce this rule? So everyone's kinda like what the fuck are you doing man like sitting? I can't. Stole fucking wacked so K, and we move on after this question you can answer you don't have to. But do you think is the same thing? Like when the NBA and still dress code back in the nineties where a I or a are having coming to to post game in pre-game when sweat pants and stuff like that. Now yachting's can't do that. So you felt that was racist. At the time. Yeah. Yeah. At the time. They don't really have not enforced. Okay. All right anyway. So yeah, that's that let us know, man. And if you guys I mean, I don't know if we have answered the question, but I'm sure you got the facts only about what happens if they show up a bit of positive news. You know, trying to try to keep it. Midst here. Philander Casto's mom. Keep it a little logic. Some logic in here. Yeah. Man. This was dope. Man. She donated eight thousand dollars to settle a lunch debt that was preventing high school seniors from graduating, which is kind of crazy in the first place. But but yeah, man like, but I think they had that when I was in school like if you had any type of unpaid debt man, they won't let you didn't never believed them. How you keep me in school because I haven't paid this off. I never believed that I think I'm trying as I do and stuff did you actually pay everything offered? Did you try them and just be like fuck shit until graduate? I didn't. But I know some people that probably didn't pay graduated. I feel like it depends on what balance you're either way. I think that that's what the fuck is this. I don't remember do you remember saying too? No like like, this is for like lunch stuff books that you're never turned in and stuff like that. They'll they'll say. Plumbing for library books. Never be an Ireland. What? I was doing. She's very intelligent. I didn't go get books in the library. I didn't need those. You just regular regular library. Yeah. I didn't get books from the student. I won't be. I remember I didn't like the person that ran the front desk. So I just I never went in the library. But I didn't know that they could keep your diploma from you. If you didn't turn say tested. Really, right. Yeah. I would've tried somebody had to try to graduate though. I'm Greg legal that can't be a threat. I'm pretty sure if you don't turn in a fucking screen, but it's not even that. I think she's this particular story is focusing on like the lunch debts that are unpaid. So, you know, you remember Philander Casteel story about how he was like the lunch dude who was like helping people I feel like it's kind of an I saw this kind of based on a tweet that I read to someone was like as like as administration, it's kind of embarrassing for you to accept this. Check knowing that, you know, you wouldn't have just waved the student fees in general, you know, what I'm saying. Like, that's so embarrassing that you have to accept this money from somebody who is launched it. So okay. So do you remember how some people pack their lunches, and then some people just like were released into the cafeteria, and they would get in this long line, and whatever served that day, whether it be pizza hamburgers pay right? They had to pay some people. It's like different like, you get that waiver where it's like route to produce lunches or free lunches or whatever. You know, there's there's different tiers. So it's like income base in what your parents make etcetera. So it's like they have regular lunch. Right. Reduced lunch and free lunch. If you qualify for any of those. But for example, it's just say you have reduced lunch. And it's two dollars instead of six dollars, and you only have a dollar fifty. They might give you a pass that day and say, okay, go ahead or whatever. Yeah. And it goes on like a debt that's tied to the little number on your account that you would type in the line. Yeah. Your student ID. And for example, I guess if it's like you have fifty or one hundred dollars or whatever at the end of the year, that's unpaid that you said you were going to pay. But you know, what I'm saying? I get it. I don't think my school do that. But I would you're saying. Yeah. So they kind of use that as a tied to be like, well, you know, you said you were going to pay it all year, and we let you go all year 'cause I don't think that they can deny student. Well, actually, I'm I don't know that might be mistaken on that. 'cause I really do feel like I did see kids who legit went without lunch because they couldn't afford it. Holland my school didn't do that. Oh veru. If you didn't have the money, you just didn't eat or maybe maybe they didn't want to accrue that money. Yeah. They were just like, my mom can't pay it. So I'm not going to you know, I also went to a fairly privileged schools. That was very very rare. I wasn't Conyers. So like when I was in high school. I went to a private high school the first high school. I went to in his either you paid or you brought your own now was it. There was no reduce this that whatever I and then when I went to when I finally went to public high school. I don't know. 'cause I always just brought my own using my mom, my mom, always used to cook. Like every day. So I will have leftovers and then when I went to public high school, I was a junior in high school. So they allowed the juniors and seniors to leave campus to go get food and come back. So if I if I am bring leftovers, then I would just go Taco Bell. Those no vegan food about high schools. Says high school tenth grade. So I didn't I don't know much about school lunch. But I know they didn't do this weird. To have it. I don't eat, right. That's yeah. Like always got freelance. From the home. Go vegan way back in tenth grade. Because 'cause that was like before that was even a thing. Right. Like, did you see the school into? We'll make this really quick. They're really really quick. It was you know, when you're when you're young you get to that point where you realize, you know, cows equal hamburgers. When you're when you're really young you don't think about that. But everyone at some point. You're like, oh, that's what this is either. You care. You don't. So when I was fifteen and I came that realization, I was like, oh, that's what that is. That's disgusting animals for you always has been. Okay. So like just carrying about animal. I'm not one of these people are like, oh, I'm healthy. They eat gluten free non GMO air sandwich, fresh it. I just don't actually eaten animal grow. So that's so fearful. If you were in high school and over was around you'll be ordering Uber fat. He'd be fact. There are some kids that are doing that. And there was a story that came out where the teachers were actually confiscating their food from them. Smack. I wanna say was here. So that would be you. But in a teacher, take, you know, what I wouldn't even have to smack up. You know, it was gonna happen. Okay. Goo food. Good, man. I agree with it agree with what? Really? Yeah. Not graduating. Oh, no. I agree with the teacher confiscating the food. I don't know about confiscated confiscating the food, but in terms of like not allowing that because I actually talked to my co worker about that who she graduated high school a little bit later on. So she had like ubereats started to become a thing. Like right before she graduated. She said that so many people were having like lunch come to the school at random times. Like, I feel like I think lunch was between like maybe twelve or eleven thirty and one or something like that. And they would go to the bathroom and be like, well, I'm one of the back. I'll be right back or something and meet people off campus to go pick up a twelve piece or something come back into math class and now smelling like hot sauce and shit. And then you've got five and it back like. It's just like that is crazy to me. And I think when a lot of people saw this story they were like, oh, that's me Newt. But it's like, you're you've got people who are ordering the shit and not even during lunchtime. And then on top of that overeats typically delayed during the lunch period where it's like an hour and a half, wait. So even if you order it at like ten or whatever it might come later. You know, I feel like a lot of kids aren't thinking ahead like oh shit. Let me order this in between this period. You know, they don't do it in a way where it doesn't take away from like the learning experience. So just don't allow it at all. So it can't become skated, basically. Yeah. And I feel like a lot of schools are pushing to do that whole thing because I feel like it's stupid to what allow for east, but then confiscate the food just ban the whole shit together food. They're going to eat this. You know, so. Makes a point. Yeah. Like, you don't want to be a distraction in class. Like like, if you ordered it at a certain point, and it got there during your lunch period. Yeah. Office to pick it up or whatever on top of that. You gotta think how many kids are in school first of all. And then on top of that you have some random old Joe come into the office area wonder for such and such then the person in the office gotta figure out who's classroom. And if they're even in their that person could be on like a bathroom breaks of the person isn't even in the classroom. You know, what I'm saying to call kind of coast shootings somebody can try to use that as a tactic inside at school. I mean, you don't have to do much to get inside of school understand that really walk up an open the door understand that. But like you you could pose as an Uber coming in because it's easier. I just think that the school itself has to like come up with a process versus just, you know, confiscating the food or whatever like, you know, instead of banning to school anymore really get both doing really every single is that like a lawn. Our daughters has been in the buzzer. I get buzzed in every time. There's like you're standing outside, and you get an apartment or some shit is well, it's like a door. You have to click a button to let them their buzz you in. Oh, really? No, it's it's different. When I go walking. Yeah. Go to to the office. And yeah. Because that's usually like the first bit room that you see when a lobbying office every time. But yeah, they have a process where like when Uber each person gets there. They just drop it off in the office. And then whoever the secretary or the front desk person is Lou. Deliver in two hundred bucks. What do you really think is like two hundred lunches a day? The food and saw that. This food is people from like like freshman to like sophomore in that. I can't drive age 'cause I feel like juniors seniors. They're like, I remember even when I was in school people would like sneak off to like Chick-fil-A or waffle house for lunch, or whatever granted you don't even have that long of a period at depends on your class. And how lax it is if you could go during that time, but mainly the people who can't drive are people who are leaving campus to go meet up with a stranger to select this food people could get kidnapped. It's just like so much shit going on, you know, people barely even know how to get into their own Uber's when the car and the make and model is right there. So you don't know who the fuck you're meeting up with for this. It's it's a liability at all costs. First of all, you must be on a good place. If you order an Uber eats shit, some type of privilege. Privilege. So too bad. Y'all can't eat your food sterile while we got people out there that has lush dedicating freaking graduate. So anyway, which I which I think about offset in these felony charges knocking phone out that do anything about that inform us can give give give us some background. What does it was? Yes. Yeah. Yeah. So it was a. Andrew junior Gibbons had took he took out his phone. He was trying to take video with offset. And and he's he did. I did see that something is expect shit downfall. What did he have in his hand? Yeah. You can't you can't offset. And he's asshole. So what what do you get hard with? Was it aggravates the felon, it's a felony felony felony charges, man. But wait a misdemeanor like a fucking felony. Of course. And that's what that's what a lot of people are saying because his him. They're you know, they're calling it. It's 'exploitation. So yeah, let's see where is it. Where is it? Because when I first heard it didn't make sense. How do you, you know, give a person of felony charge for not gonna phone out of the hand? But then with what they say it was because of the the how especially the phone was is why it. I see I don't really feel bad for him. Why you smacking people's fucking? Okay. So so bad that you got that you're involved with the law, but a felony scenes a bit excessive. But also, I know that whenever you damage personal property. They do have limits and these fuck your phones are expensive shit now. So this person had like a like iphone ten max like five twelve you're looking at almost like eighteen hundred dollars. Just got to be smart, man. Yeah. You can't do that your public figure. Why he would turn around just walk out the door the way you were going. This has been happening with other rappers like, I know there was a big deal with with Earl a month or so ago where some kid was filming him, and Earl ran up and slap the dudes phone, and then we see this happen. I guess I guess these celebrities are just getting annoyed with having their privacy invaded which on one side. I do understand being annoyed that just because you're a public figure people think that they can just go up run up in your face. Hey, put a grammar, whatever. Right. But on the other hand, I don't understand why you think you are a celebrity. So you kind of walked into this this which stand you don't wanna be bothered. But you don't have the right to just run up in break somebody shit because there's a way that you can kinda just kinda get out of it. You know, just be lighting, bro. You know? I'm good. Appreciate if you don't high block your face, man. Just like I'm not really trying to do that right now face walkaway some like disrespectful sitting. You know, captain, light the selfie so. Yeah. So while he was in the background or something like that. Onus. Way back there. And he's also on them in slapped it out of hand. That's crazy. So yeah, I'm with it. Got phone calls too much for smacking. Got the kid. Tech. Do you think is different from the person that's holding the camera like if they win payoffs at, you know, can I get a picture, whatever. Versus just, you know, randomly just trying to get you on camera. Like, do you think that's the difference? Like in terms of the rappers reaction, I understand them being pissed either way. I'm the saying don't run up and slap. Nobody's shit. I understand being annoyed. Because I I mean, we're not celebrities, obviously. But I would be fucking annoyed. If every time went out the house, and I go to WalMart. Some dude running like, you know, my zero say so. Fuck out here. But the reason why I what I ask is. Because if you give me the option to decline, then you know, what I'm saying. Like, I guess I will be more. Okay. With that versus you just trying to put me on camera. Just 'cause I'm Wham I got you. But you know, sometimes some of these everything's like they'll declined just to be on some like, they do according went to the this. This this festival down in little five points and one of the dudes from stranger things was there. The weird brother like the older, we are other. He was there. I didn't focusing him. My friends niece who was like fifteen. She saw. She like, oh my God. So it sell from Spain things. I'm looking for fucking eleven do booked up. T- look below black kid, and I'm like fuck that is and she's like, oh my God. I love him. I want to get picked go asking me doing. She just can't in there. She walked over. And she was like, hey, I really love the show. I really love your character. Can I get a picture, and he was like, nah, nah. Because if I get a picture with to dumb out to get a picture with everybody else, and she looked devastated and she walked back. She's like he said, no. And I was like she told me why based in a single mother fucker here looking at you, not a single other person has looked at you get a fucking picture with this. Why are you being a dick like? Reckon. With the chick. And I think he felt stupid that nobody else was asked. It's always like. Just ask him again. Oh, hell she went over. There was a reason she went over there. And I pulled this look. I understand you're out in whatever. But one person asked you, bro because we were standing by him for a good forty five twin came in person renounce her one person. And you're telling me that if you take this one pick people going swarm you so so clear you told her to go back, and you took the picture. On the on the sneak 'cause you're being adjourned. So okay. So I got I got I got two stories right is wrong did but I did it anyway. And it was your niece on the book and. Stories. So I'm black Korea. The the host of that show. He was on one of those like American idol type shits over there in Korea, a really popular. And he he told me this one story where he was like chilling on a corner, and you know, people passing careers, very densely populated, and there's one dude was all my guy. You're that guy. Right. So he took a picture in all of a sudden he Goss warmed and he was like I missed like my like the concert that he was going to. So so I could get it. Right. Like, I understand in an even me like. About six months ago. So I was at whole foods, right? And me, and the wife we eat how Khobar and all of a sudden is one dude. He's there with his wife and he's like oh shit. Fi fo that he made like this big ass commotion. You know, what I'm saying you, I get a picture. You know? I don't give a damn like. Yeah. Come on all of a sudden, I like four or five other people obviously swarm, but I have four or five other people come up like so. Yeah. So who are you in this that and also your famous in this people just started like coming up to me? I'm like what the fuck imagine. If you. No, I've never turned down a picture ever me. Neither you would absolute. I said this before. Yes, you would turn down a picture. I don't care. Reasoning. I don't want to. I don't. So what do you tell them? Okay. Tell me a situation. How did she ate it? But no, I don't feel like taking a picture right now. And what what did they say? What are they going to do? I'm gonna say they're gonna walk away. Okay. Dick. Somebody that was like I kind of looked up to and even if it's not just a picture. I'm dislike hey, my, really. Night way, kind of feel like your whole if there's like what to like literally to people who actually follow me or give a shit about me. I feel like they know that I'm not the type of person like it like for me when I see celebrities. I don't even do that whole picture shit. It's just more like I'll look at them. And they'll either like acknowledge me or like make contact or something. And we'll like they know that I know who they are. And that's enough for me. So I feel like a lot of people don't really like or wouldn't really approach me on some like. Yeah. I got a picture with you shit unless I'm literally out in an event or something exactly. So if it's not a lot of people won't you just do it. It takes two seconds ticket picture people killing when they're like, oh, I ain't got time. We literally more time to say, I don't have time that it just take the fucking picture. You're gonna persons bullshit. You're gonna make that person's day. Incorrect person is seeing the person they watched on TV, and they're like, oh my God this to set because I've done it done pictures with people. I love that's great. And I mean, if you're coping this whole, that's fine. No, it's not less time to say. I don't have time. I don't feel like it. I don't wanna picture then it would be like. You know, I I remember one time I went to carnival and this one guy took a picture he asked me and a couple of my friends to take a picture because we were all in like, costumes or whatever right post to post the picture with the caption like, oh got all these baddies or some bullshit. Like that. Like you completely. Switch like this is why I don't fuck fuck with that shit. Because it's like you're going to ask me to take a picture. And then I've seen celebrities where you know, they're they take a picture with somebody. Then they completely flip it like, oh look at this way. Mass Nikko out of character because they was in WalMart dot com. Why? Because someone's going to flip the picture. That's happened to me. Well, anybody listening you see me out and you wanna fuck picture. I gotcha. Good. If you see me out cool, come up say with a take a picture decifit mind. I don't mind, but as phase felony attempted robbery charges. Remember with the camera? So he should've of. As different. So anyway, Facebook redesign was in the news actually for a couple of days one, they redesigned their the app around events and groups, and you know, that's interesting because they've been in the news for a lot of privacy issues. They just had a bad year last year. So I guess they trying to get people cited about the platform again. But right when they did that in addition to doing that they turned around and ban, Alex Jones, Louis Farrakhan. And and my low was my low the other person that they got bad. I'm trying to. That's understandable, all understandable. Even even even even fair. Ban. What exactly? Platform. Wait phase. Why? I mean, they well, I'm lost. Why why can't they use Facebook because Martin one on every because of their? On certain things. So Alex Jones, you know, of course, is known for his conspiracy theories Farrakhan has certain views that are looked down upon by you know, groups of people. So I think they just want to make sure that the platform is used for more positive things and less for those type of positions. And and with these guys they can influence people people, you already know what happened with the election and stuff like that. So they just want to get things back. Right. So fair. Well, that's what Trump tweeted about it and said he's continuing to monitor that censorship of you know, the Americans. So he says getting worse and worse for conservatives on social media. Every so everybody agrees would not lend certain people on matters. If we agree or not I understand that. We had this conversation about the bay. Y'all. But certain people here were like, yeah, it's cool. If they battled daily banks, and I said, then it was fucking stupid, but it's still their platform. So they can do whatever they want. So whatever by by Milo. I mean, what's not fair because all of a sudden just start just making like you'd have to answer. It wasn't just their stance. I think that's a slightly misleading. What was stated there? I think it's more. The fact that these platforms are a little bit scared that they're making dangerous statements. So fair has made Andy semitic statements Milo has clearly made racist statements. He's made and you can try to fact, someone me all you want. But you'll be dancing around the fucking subject Milo has made racist statements. I don't know much about Alex Jones. I always dishonest coup because I never really paid him that kind of tension, but I don't really see the big deal. Granted they kept him around. I wouldn't complain. I went back. That's wrong. Kick them off. I don't agree with all that shit. But if they kicked them off, I'm not gonna sit here and five form. I could say if I'm sorry. Have you seen stuff like like KUA Whitey and stuff like that? I mean, that's a little different. But if you don't know what's your own stance on things and a society, or whatever like why why ban person because you just don't agree. Here's so here's what they said. It is about their community in their community standards is number two in put a Lincoln the show notes, but under dangerous individuals and organization soda policy rationale in an effort to prevent and disrobe real world harm. We do not allow anyone ization or individuals that proclaim violet issue mission or are engaged in violence from having a presence on Facebook. This includes organizations or individuals involved in the following terrorist activity organized hate mass serial murder, human trafficking, organize violence or criminal activity. Farrakhan, is is how fair con has made. Plenty of statements about Jews. Plenty any only reason we would look at him like a black leader. So we ignore what he's saying about other groups. Maybe I'm not aware of what he's saying. He's he's Farrakhan assessment fucked up shit about Jews. Again. I mean, if they decide to keep him I wouldn't complain if they kick him off. I wouldn't I don't really care that much either way. But I think it's funny that people are really mad about this are they will. I mean, you know, you can kind of see a lot of this coming when they started to kind of kick Alex Jones off, and I think they're an m Milo when he got kicked off. And now, you know, two point where okay. Well, we're going to go to and include Farrakhan in there as well. And you know, his record for, you know, his statement. So he and his is their platform. They want, you know, more positive stuff. And you know, this is what they decided to do. And I think this is in response to what happened in the election, and they're clear lack of attention to people's privacy rights and the things that are going on their platform. So so yeah, I mean. Is it censorship? But it's not a freedom of speech issue. Yeah. No. It's not a freedom of speech. But it is censorship though. The only thing that I did think was interesting is how the conservatives are turning this into a conservative targeting when fare cards clue not conservative, you know. And Trump was one of the one that was tweeting out talking about, you know, oh in America. We have freedom of speech, and you still have it stupid ass. But then he was trying to make it seem like they're targeting conservatives. But it's like fair Khan is not a conservative they're targeting people who are making dangerous statements, or what they deem is dangerous Dayton on their platform. Now, this was a government platform. Yeah. I would say this is fucked up and it's not fair, and they have no, right. This is a private corporation. They can do whatever they want. And if you're mad leave the platform and show these platforms that you're mad, but they have no obligation to uphold your freedom of speech abs-. Like, none of those people. I mean, they they Alon with the conservative party. I mean, it just you know. Yes account is what it is. Farrakhan, just you know, now, he's added in that. And, you know, while Trump was speaking for the conservative part, you know, I don't I don't necessarily know if he was include Clooney, Louis Farrakhan in that now he's trying to he's trying to twist the narrative daily Bank kicked off. She's not fucking conservative. She's just a dumb ass. Yeah. And I think it's also so interested in I'm just gonna kinda watch us the play out like now that Louis Farrakhan has been thrown in like when Alex Jones who was kicked off people that share and that type of stuff in my low when he was kicked off yet people cheering like, oh, yeah. You know, you know, he's saying all these dangerous to get him outta here. But now that there's somebody that they may agree with that has been kicked off as black. Now, let's see, you know, how the response is is is going to be you know, moving for since. Like a. Yeah. Yeah. Kick them off because they kicked off to. So they can't say that just a conservative white thing. I think is is statements gave them the power to that. Yeah. Yeah. That and if he didn't say that I I wonder if he would have been kicked off. But but yeah. But either way, but yet at the think it might be a missile both to like, here's a blackout too. We you know, everybody is not just conservative. So maybe it was way to kind of he's Trump. I don't know. So Sophie, did you like that? The mayo Chela that popped up last week. So it was his male. Tele will I mean? Yes. Good. Gotta talk is like well, somebody say what it is. Because 'cause rated for us to move. Go hick Tila, Tillerson happened kid mayo. Cello was Taylor swift coopting. Oh beyond say's. Homecoming Coachella performance the year or the year two weeks. After the Netflix documentary jot. Think so trying to tell you. Young girl. But I know that man was smiling cheese them when they came out. They look so goofy. They did get some some meat on her her bra. Missile. I gave out I was. Where did that come from? Exactly the Miami. See, you know, unbelievable. When I saw do like. It was. I have a question for you. Because you know, you're the camera guide producer guy. So like from that standpoint, what was your reaction about the differences or similarities between these two performances? I mean, immediately look the same. Did it feel the same too? Because to me because I I saw it, you know, again, when you scroll on your time line, you can see videos hearing them I and I was clicking this bullshit because I didn't even watch the billboard awards or whatever. But I clicked it. I think after be sent it to me, and it was just like everything from like, the whistle. Okay. You know, what I thought it was going to be thought it was just going to be unbanned marching up and she. To which I was like, whatever that's annoying, but it was just like the whistling walk walking out to the popping up. And Jessica like behind the stage everything to be on the whistles to. Oh, Mike too. A mock. Rado straight. I Joe that girl cookbook cute. She came out there with confidence too late like, oh, I just got back. I just. This move the hater. Privilege mood really was. Say lover. Pitch. Fully do you know me? Man, bro. No, no, no. Like, why would no one on her tennis? What I will say, no one told you this was a bad idea. Nobody nobody. Rad getting payment. I wouldn't say shouldn't need. It'd be anyway. She always you over her anybody, it just cheapens it so much to me like pants. I did so much to like pull together and like pay homage to like H B and using the ban for a reason. Whereas Taylor's performance felt like she just threw a band slap shit together and five minutes they wanted to playing that was the part that I picked up on immediately. They get it again playing drums. No like, you can hear the sound the back on this like. It looks so goofy. And it was like bounce. That's why they can bounce all this because they're not playing enjoy. It was like a cross between like an energizer bunny commercial. The color of pink was off everything. Just look like throw up parody. Ios like, she make you. BFA thing. I didn't see I only saw come out. And she. So that's. Was I thought it was somebody that was important. I thought it was jaylo thought it was maybe Eggy. Lace? You know what I mean? I guess you're right. Not important. But like. Somebody bit. That's what it was. I think when I've heard it was Taylor. I went back and watch it like two or three times. I'm like, that's Taylor swift. She's been gone for Taylor. People say, Dr Miami S's, she got. Slum? But yeah, I could not believe. That sounds like I couldn't believe that. Either man that shit was crazy for dick. You paler responded. Wondering because he goes before. Right. 'cause I had to read a little bit of the article. Johnson. Yes. With beyond say, so this is a thing with Taylor swift. And why people have such a problem with her in the industry, right? So okay. As beyond say has come up in the industry. She is like taking like a stance on like what she stands for. You know, like she doesn't. She didn't have to say anything because I feel like a lot of people get to a certain point where as I said in the beyond say review like you have to kind of choose a stance on like like after you to a certain point. It's kind of like, okay. Like, what do you stand for who who do you support, etc? Etc. It's gonna come out anyways. But it's good to get ahead of it on the front lines. Just to say where you stand and beyond say has to do the whole like I'm here for black women black people on fuck about what the fuck y'all talking about. I please white people enough with the whole halo shit and that whole tour. Fuck we formation like black power all this shit. Now with Taylor swift. It's very like. Typical white woman kind of ambiguous. And just kinda like, for example. She had a lot of a white supremacist like backing her and she never ever like took fit like she. She never took. Yes, you've ever took a stance against it. She was just kinda like. Sorters around me. I'm not gonna say anything, whatever. She's she's very awesome. Port is good support, you know type shit, and she's never ever denounce that because I feel like a lot of celebrities if they had like a huge white nationalist backing they'd be like, okay, fuck that shit. Let me separate myself from that. Because that's not what I stand for. And she's never done that and on top of that again, another comparison with her and be will. It's not even a comparison because it's like, literally whatever, but anyways with beyond saying what she's trying to or what she does. It's like she pulls a lot of inspiration. Like, okay, I feel like Taylor saying inspiration is a cop out because it's very like reactive to me. So people will call Taylor swift out on something and she'll like back into her corner of oh, well, I was inspired by this person. Whereas beyond say will up front give credits. Like Schroeck credits out tro credits in the middle of the shit. She's naming who she pulled inspiration from she'll she'll dive into. Documentaries about where she pulled her inspiration from and how she got permits and rights, and this and that in the third which is why when people try to her for pulling certain clips from formation, she just laughed because St. was like, I mean, I've been this has been in the works for like years, and I've already gotten the ruble's on this. So you're going to try to soothe me, but I really have the rights. You know, whereas Taylor swift is just like, well, I'm just gonna make a cheap version of this. And I was so inspired. And I don't really know much about it, or you know, the culture behind it. But I think it looks pretty and I kinda wanna piece of this. So let me just. Listen specific thing that she did in terms of like before this. So they were comparing I guess, you know, how artists things in different eras per se. She had like a. When she Kendra came out with that song. Oh, taylor. I forgot what the fuck it was. But she had like this era of like, look what you made me. Do. I don't know what the fuck that about talking about this one. Yeah. Yeah. So I don't because again, I don't follow her. But she has I don't know like beyond her like her lemonade era. And then Taylor swift had some other thing that she did. And it was just a lot of. It was just terrible. That was crazy. So so so beyond say or Taylor has it came out of me any official statements about it. Now, I don't think beyond whatever address something. So to say. And so this last thing we move to common commentary. So what do you got an owner? If you got all this. But so Michael Rapaport said that beyond say. I'm kinda sticking him to say. Knowing what he's saying. So his tweet was so Taylor swift stove from beyond say who stole from Gwen Stefani. Who stole from Fleetwood MAC in the nineteen seventies dumb asses and don't folks invited him. It sell long and black culture kicking the fuck out. It's time to go ninety going nowhere. He needs to go. Commentators. He he's he's, but he's always been involved. Yeah. You'll yo yes. Hype? Lebron? The shark going with learning. He was a higher learning. He's been a lot. But I yeah, he no he's he's definitely not someone to be like, oh, we don't know why the fuck you're here. But at this point, it's like, we don't talk. Him. Like, he's he's always he's always had a place within black culture. But he's wearing out. His welcome. You know, speaking on. No, no, he does gives them the right to talk about what music is good in terms of hip, hop and bad. Even the right. Yeah. He's been Alaw. Yeah. He's been he's been a part of the culture since the fucking eighties. He really even before that like I like giving back to black people and stuff. Soon as he grew up in New York. I wanna say like Yonkers and all of that stuff. Like, he grew up like around Mike Tyson like he grew up like he grew up in that era of Harlem, and you know, what I'm saying like like he he grew up in. So that's the reason why he he has a say he knows behind produce trap documentary. Like he he's in there. So if I ain't going nowhere about how Taylor swift is by fall for the banana tailpipe him. I disagree. I think he's fucking up. Now, it's always for some bullshit about him overstepping, his bounds in black culture. And that's only a recent a recent thing, I think link three times, that's what? To me again looking. Yeah. Fuck out. He's been he's been actually doing semi good things for a very long time. And he's been making statements about like, the real hip hop that type of shit, but it just seems like recently he's been opening mouth and sticking his book. The fuck one has people. He's aside. Like, dude stop. Yeah. That's what it is. Anyway, I want to know some before comic commentary. Have you already got go hit the okay from? The sonic. The hedgehog thing y'all seen his. Trill trill. Nick wanna change sonic hedgehog. Because of all the the back last was a joke. To actually came out. And made a statement saying they're going to change it because it's been so many fucking this. The first time I've seen it this way. I thought it was kind of important in in cinema because that's a lot of money how animation so for them to go back through that and change them up. Like, that's a big thing. So a lot of money. What what people been saying about sonic, like, he just don't look, right or. Get autographs, and I'll really look like. Wow. Ally sonic, this proportions are off like you know, how signing had traditional big hits. He doesn't like that. He's basically proportion on real skinny real skinny. A humanoid body and stuff like it's just doesn't look like him. It's like, you know, we saw sonic the hedgehog. You know, what I mean when he plus year character what the what's the movie going to be about? Story line besides catching. Not really gonna be is like this my robot. Nick, that's pretty much like the Bill. Dr rebutting is like the bows of. Yeah. Okay. I don't know what the overall premises, but they have friends. Box. What is technically? Sonic is alien is an alien in the movie. So, you know, so the government is trying to I don't know. I mean, I don't know. Putting them as alien in in the now the government is trying to catch them. Basically. They they call me because he's an. Daily just did it with any cartoon what the fuck is alien. But he's actually trying to save the world, basically, whatever. Yeah. But but like I just wanted to bring up the point of the directors actually because of all the backlash are going to change how he looks. Jess. That's kinda crazy right away. Shit. Yeah. Shout out your Netflix. Bill is gonna go up isn't several Bama films, bro. Wait, wait, seven Obama. The Obamas got seven projects SIS seven projects on Netflix flicks. So. I'll watch it. Everybody to watch. Just what is what is the? The prisoner. No more. We fought. Recognize on the black people in history. Why lupus in in the Malcolm's? Worry about them. Learn. I'm not I don't really know. I'm not really. Still here, man. He can look we've are talking about Obama. We have. Everybody. Everybody keeps Clinton. By the Nuff. I just I don't really care to watch him talk about his glory days and the presidency because we're not there. Now. I don't think it's going to be going to talk about going to be a show like what was that one rapper Africa in the middle Georgia what killer might. Yeah. It's probably gonna shit like. Hear the name of the project. American factory bloom. Frederick Douglass overlooked listened to your vegetables and your parents. Encrypt camp. He's reducing. Oh, would you say that Nelson says Obama? Show not using shows. Yeah. No neon. That's what we all talked about it. But. Either way ago about to go up. That's all I'm saying nut Fano fucking each vegetables already. Do Angela Bassett has some things I think he just on his executive deal or king? Just getting a king. Right. Jim Carrey would've done that. You know, they don't know why she just came to mind. That's gonna do it for topics. We'll take a quick break. And we'll be back with common commentary.

So these comments coming from thread from this week's episode on on on read it. They wanna hear you talk in detail about well, actually, they did when you talk about the Star Wars. You be Mike. Oh me now is looking relooking anyway. Talking to fucking. Like who is? Biggie smalls. Damn somebody actually deuce in the review of the last Jedi on channel. So what was the question? They want to hear what they just basically acid their episode where Mike talks about his full opinion on the last Jedi. Oh, yeah. Then thank you. It was bad enough that to garner. Sorry. He desired it didn't think it was bad enough to garner that reaction from him. She it. So wind goo shout out to win. Kua win. Goo sent them your review with me and the homey Ryan Falcone's. So makes you check out. Yeah. We'll probably do one for Risa Skywalker too. So for anybody else out there that wanted to know the same thing with ROY link in the episode description or you can go to read it check it out there. So this other one is from dark monarch, and he said, I agree with Mike and Shelton on the ban is not really groundbreaking and not really a threat to musicians is going to happen in though, just for the novelty of it. And I think that's alright for experimentation. Maybe some kind of a and human duo would be more interesting also have might wants to hear tech death with more of a human touch, please recommend artificial brains infrared horizon, I've heard it don't like it. But thank you. I appreciate the recommendation those kind of. Yeah. In the last one is from GAC ninety two. So he says yo a love the show and everything you guys do but every time. Go in Andrew show talking about how much he would probably say nigga on his own and other races stuff. Just shows me that you guys have really listed the guy much. Andrew talk many times about how he has never said it and has never said never wanted to say it, he won't even say it. When Charlemagne has given him Charlemagne has given him the past multiple times Schultz, just straight out refuses to say when Charlemagne is trying to get him to slip. I'm just saying you guys probably saying clip or to align and got the wrong impression. I would like to save that is absolutely false because I've listened to multiple multiple multiple episodes of the brilliant idiots podcasts. And is just it's just there, man. So he's not gonna slip up and say it, you know, on there, and while Charlemagne is trying to him because he knows what's going to happen. So he's going to do everything he can to protect his his image. But it sound like a communist unlike affects on. On often. Do we talk about fucking into salts? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It was a little bit of both. So I just coming in here defendant Andrew show, right after we talked about fucking mayo cello here man rappoport. Yeah. I think he's he's he's another one that I think just you know, he he washing. That's all so he comes across as ally. But based on things that I've heard all know, he might be an ally. But I think he needs to chill with these fucking jokes that he make some of these jokes. Don't sound like jokes. That's all. I'm saying that thing like understand he's a comedian. And but yeah, I think the way you put it spot on sometimes they don't sound like jokes when it comes to him. So we can't really tell and that'd be part of his own stick. I don't know. But you know, it's just you know. Yeah. That's it. So thanks for all your comments, man. We'll jump into some questions. Okay. All right. So we have our questions or strike -ment here. All right. Okay. Send your questions to is the Mike Stallone edgy, mail dot com. If you want your question to be read on the show. We have a quest or not a question. I guess we have a follow up. Hey, guys. My name is Melissa. And I'm a twenty one year old college student my boyfriend recently wrote into your show to ask about cutting off a longtime friendship, I enjoyed the banter about the girlfriend to wife thing. And I also agree with several points. You all made I'm super into your show, and I love the content as well as the fan questions. I'm a new listener. But I love the nature of your discussion. So I would like to ask your opinion on the idea that white women sense of beauty slash worth rely solely on the idea that at least I'm not a black woman, quote, unquote, yet, they yet they still tend to want to take our culture, instead, it culture culture slash setting. And when they're called out on it the women who do the calling. I'll get labeled as haters and like. What? And and and the like and usually by black men. Okay. Sorry. I don't really know what to say. But I hope my question makes it on the podcast. I know this is a generally generalization to me. It's a very solid point that should be addressed as as it is mostly black men who tend to want to make this comparison. Again, I'm speaking in general terms, I guess she has a question kind of tucked in here that again, I will read that says I would like to ask your opinion on the idea that a white woman sends a beauty or worth rely solely on the idea that quote, unquote, at least, I'm not a black woman yet, they still tend to take to wanna take our culture and aesthetic when they're called out on it. And the woman who do the calling out get labeled as haters. So this is a black woman. I thought the guy was. That's what he said his girlfriend was remember? Oh, right. Okay. Anyway. So what are your thoughts? I think it's true to certain extent. I think a lot of people even like like white people. But then also like white passing Latina also like even like lighter skin black women kind of rely on the fact that e either sorry, either a I'm not black or if I am black at least, I'm not dark. You know, they have this whole aesthetic where they're like, you know. Oh, yeah. I may look like this or. Yeah. May look like that. But at least I'm not XYZ. And I think that we see that. Because there have been conversations online where you'll you'll see people say, you're not pretty you're just lights. Good. And I think that comes from the fact that you know, you can have the same features for somebody. And if you were to apply that to somebody like darker skin tone that would somehow change the fact that they're no longer attractive? So I think it's definitely something to explore. And I definitely feel like with people at apply as well. Like, you know. Yeah, you wanna go and. You know, tan to the point where your skin is kind of you that that weird like rubbery thing that happens when like people stay out too long like their skin kind of burns beef jerky. Yeah. It's weird. Seriously. Like, a weird, you know, like you're not supposed to be out that long worn in Levick. Yeah. Plastic or something, and you know, it's like. God. I don't watch reality TV. But what was that name that girl's name, Kim zodiac? I think. No, I think that's her name Kim zodiac. She she and her daughter had her lips plumped up to the point where it's like on some big Ange type shit. And it's like, you know, they'll go tanning like crazy. And there's like literally a whole culture centered around, you know, the aesthetic of pulling certain things from black features. But even you know clo- crash, Ian. Her example on she's half black. No. Even her example. With trend Tristan Thompson when he literally just had a child with somebody else before they got into a relationship. And for some reason, I think that she thought she wasn't gonna get played in the same way. Because I feel like they think that they can assume these characteristics about our from black women, but feel like they're not gonna get played in the same way. It's just weird. Yeah. Like oh. Like, I'm above that. But I still have these attributes that can attract certain people, and I think that's some some some black men, even you know, we'll go as far to kind of give that the go ahead. You know, like, oh, well, I mean once white girl starts working as a rat for y'all or once, you know, why curl star cooking chicken a rat. For y'all like people say. Where I was. I haven't seen this those kind of relying on you know, you guys if you have, but yeah, when she said that that the black man were calling black women haters for calling out white woman for stealing our or they're static. I haven't seen much of that. Until you know, you just mentioned that you may have. So that that seem real interesting to me. Well, it's because I think it's because it's not something that they personally experienced. So it's it can be easy for a black man to like somebody or be attracted to somebody who's white or mixed. But then want to darker girl says, you know, hey, this kind of look similar to me and not not it's hard because I think they kind of write it off as either jealousy or being a hater. And it's not really as much as like, hey, I want you to choose on me or I want you to see me, it's more. So like, you only think this girl is attractive. Because of this and this and this feature when I have all of those features. I'm just not in the package that you are willing to accept it in. And I feel like when we try to have that discussion it gets deemed as like won't man, what the fuck is talking about or whatever because I feel like guys don't really go through that same scrutiny with. Color is into the extent that women are upheld two. So. Yeah. Making a funny face. What is it not? I was just a little profile. I you got you got to think that through. I think that's what that because I'm having the same face cans. That was his thinking about the men don't go through that. I think they do. They just don't they don't let it be publicly known that. It bothers them. I'm sure I'm sure what the whole lifespan dark skin thing with men with light skinned men being looked at as soft and suckers and all that shit. I'm sure that bothers a lot of men since we're in a very much. He's mo- age. You know, I don't know. I I don't I don't I've never seen a lot of men come out and proclaim that it bothers them because they're not gonna do that. It's just not in men's DNA. I think there's a difference between being bothered by something. Which again, your feelings are valid if that is the case, but I feel like it's another. It's another thing when you get pushed out of spaces of that. I don't really feel like, for example, like light skinned men are really pushed out of like job opportunities, or, you know, things in the entertainment industry, or whatever the same way that for example, dark skinned women are pushed out of, you know, even Marla Negra. She couldn't you know. She could only go certain cheek. She could only do a certain thing when she was coming up in love and hip hop. They were trying to get her to straighten her hair when she was known for the afro and all that other shit like your black put your little buck for us. So if you could just lighten it up put a little Creamer in that show. You know, like like there's a certain thing where they're kind of almost expelled out of these certain areas. Whereas I feel like light skinned men, your feelings are valid with you know, obviously people joke about stuff even like with light skinned women. They'll be like, oh, y'all got a big forehead and light skinned women will be like. I was totally I was bullied for housing. Like, I was bullied for having a big forehead, and I was bullied for having really curly and loose hair. And you there are a lot of lights go one who are like even. Oh my God. That thing whites light skinned women have bigger foreheads. It's just like this. Thing that people will say like, oh, if she likes gives you got a big for it or some really Gina didn't have a big ass for hit. No. But seriously. She, you know, the YouTube chick who's like not really are and be but is on the charts for it, or whatever she's suspending biller. Yeah. I don't know if she's black or what she's mixed or whatever. But she's she's even come out with video saying, hey, I was bullied for my super loose curly hair and being prettier than everyone. So like even Ambrose like growing up in Philly. You know, I was lighter skin, and I was teased for it, and whatever, but you still have access to these other things. So it's kind of like who gives I mean, not who gives us cause your feelings are valid if that's how you fell if you really feel like you were bullied or whatever. But you have to understand that you were not pushed out of space is the same way that darker skinned people are pushed out kind of interesting because we were just talking about he'll tell which is sort of similar to what she's kinda riding in about is like here's a white woman as taking a black woman's thing that she did that really became popular. And you know, she put it out there as it was her own, you know. And you know, I guess I don't know if Taylor has spoken out about it. But in the past she hid behind being inspired. So and then, you know, of course, there was a lot of mockery not only by black people. But by publications as well white public relations, actually pointing out that they did that. So I think it's kind of sort of always been a thing where you know, we would culturally create something that would be seen or perceived as cool and then other races Wistar to adopt that you know, as as their their own or they just wanted to do it. And I think my problem with that is I feel like a lot of things that black people or people, you know, in minorities create either to survive or because they're going through a struggle. They create something beautiful out of it. And I think that that's kind of like co opted by other people who have no interest in figuring out what the culture is in like the meaning behind shit. Which is why it feels like it's kind of devaluing with the fuck we went through. This sounds like a different question though, or a different topic that's cultural perpetration versus beauty. So because I'm I will times I think it goes hand in hand or, but what she was asking it, which I think is an interesting question. That's why I've been silence, I'm listening. I don't I don't I've never heard that. Either. This particular question like the way that it's sprays. Okay. Where it's at least. I'm not a black woman. I've definite. We've definitely seen the whole white women doing things that look like black tribute whatever I've never heard it phrased or positioned or framed around. Well, at least I'm not a black woman. I think it's just in different like scenarios. So I don't think it's like overly like talked about or discussed in a way where it's like, oh, it's very concrete that I feel like at least I'm not a black woman, for example, like in spaces where you know, how do I say this? It's like, okay. So let's just say, and I'm gonna use like Latino woman as an example instead of white women. I think that like let's Hino. There's a group of Latino women who are like, you know. Hey, young black men. Love us. Black women are hating on us because we're stealing their men. It's a win for us. And then on the other side, those black those black men who are dating those Latino women are just like. Yeah. They're so spicy there. So this I loved them, and it's like packaged. It's basically like the the way that Latina's essentially are packaged up is basically almost similar to like that of a black woman. Accept the fact that she's literally just not the skin tone or cultural heritage of a black woman. For example. I have a friend who lives in California and everything's just like shit fuck over there because of the color ISM, and like, whatever she's darker skin. She says that she has trouble even like going to like black clubs because they literally will not let people of certain skin tone into certain clubs or you have to pay more or just like some weird shit. So she says she has better luck going to either a mix race club or like a completely white club. Because they're like so much more inclusive, which is why you see a lot of black women dating white guys out there. Whereas she has a friend who's Latina a friend who's Asia. They both have black boyfriends and the way that they talk about their their foreign, quote unquote, women is oh she's so spicy. I love the way that she claps back at me, and this and that but package that in the form of a black woman, and it's ghetto she's angry. She's ghetto. So it's kind of like, I think that's what people are speaking on. It's like they get the room to be ghetto, and quote, unquote, problematic or and loud, and but for them, it's spicy. And it's something that's desired after. Whereas when a when it's packaged in that of a black woman. It's undesirable go always angry. Always. Yeah. She get all that. But I mean, we we should close it out. But I get all that. But I still don't visit interesting question. In in my head. Now, I'm seeing the black men that accusing the black woman of hating. They're the ones that are dating white women. So in order to, you know, make themselves feel better. Shut up. Stay in your place type of thing. Mantra fucking business day who the fuck I want, right. But I think positioning it as your a hater. I don't know. I think this hold this whole. I wish we would have spent more time on that actual question. Because I think it's an interesting question. I think we're bouncing around a bit too much. But yeah, I'm kinda stuck on the way that whole thing is phrase. It's interesting. Well, I think at this is my best way that I could try and wrap it up with what I talked about what the whole blackened dating Asian and white and this and that I think that those women know that they're in a space where they get to be those things, you know, the loud and spicy, and whatever all those things. But at the end of the day, they are in a space where they again can hold over their heads like I can do all these things. But at least I'm not a black woman. So anybody positioning it like that that coming from the Caucasian group? That's what I'm that's where I'm not seeing again. I don't know I'm asking genuine question. I don't pay attention to that kinda shit. Who is phrasing? It that way. Right. Right. Right. Putting that on somebody else or they actually putting that attitude out there. I think it's a little bit of both. I think that. But I think it's more than putting it out there than us putting on them because like I remember not too long ago. Sabrina Claudio, I think she's a singer. But she she had a comment like that and wife you made me have to cancel her. But you know, the o'clock. She's a Spanish Bannet Bush white pass. I want to hear about these white people that are doing that. Yeah. That's because the color is in between, Hispanic and African Americans. That's something that's always been there. And I'm kinda used to that obviously used to white racism. I've just never heard that enlist unless it said in private spaces has insight to that. Right. That in the we just need more clarification. So Melissa we're somewhat stuck a little bit. So yeah, if you can write in which just a little bit more information samples of people that have idea. So we could know saying you're wrong. We don't know. Right. Yeah. This is new to me. So I just would. Yeah. From those examples that I gave it can be assumed you know, that that's kind of the thinking that goes in that thought process behind it. But I mean, yeah, if you have specific examples of white people actually saying that, and again, I don't think she's going to have necessarily examples of them actually vocalizing it because I think that it just comes off in the way that you carry yourself in the way that you act that it's just kind of like, oh, well, you know, at least I'm above that. No matter what I do. No matter how much I still from the store. No matter. How talked to no matter if I hit you no matter if I do this at least you're still going to choose on me because I'm not. This package of person that you refuse today or except to LA starring food. For taylor. That to do it for us this week, man. Thank you guys.

We've got an update on we talked about Tariq hill and what's going on with that football player. Kansas City Chiefs football player super fast. I mean, he has like four to forty speed. Yeah. He's he has a gift for sure he runs forty yards in four point two seconds. Nobody does that. I mean, it's like that's like if you're not familiar football. That's that's like world record speed. It's like Jeffy speed. She's felt athlete. And he if Jeffy was shot out of a cannon. Oh, that's left a slender enough to be shot out of a cannon. So it's Jeffy speed when he's at the buffet Jared into his mother, it is okay. Now, you nailed it. So anyway, the guy's really fast. He also happened to apparently break his son's arm. So he's out of football right now. And there's an interesting update on that. Also. Al- heck is broken LUSA get on Facebook as they start banning people and eliminating voices. Now, we've spoken many times about Alex Jones and how. Insane. He is. And I don't buy into give you for instance. Alex Jones has said that Joe Biden had part of his brain removed ten years ago. I mean, okay show me the evidence of that. I and maybe we'll entertain that. So anyway, he was now saying that you know, when we played this to the other day when he was slurring his words sounded like he may have been drunk, according to Alex Jones that was his second stroke. I don't know. But you should be able to say that if you want right, sure. Well, he's apparently completely banned now on Facebook. They've taken him off. They've also taken off Milo Yannopoulos for being dangerous and Louis Farrakhan, they actually called Louis Farrakhan, right wing. Yes. They did. What are what are you talking about Louis Farrakhan is right wing? Yeah. Now, I thought that they threw Farrakhan in there. Just as a all, right. We'll give you one left-wing person to. And then we'll show you that. Hey, we're nonbiased. We don't care. What look we did. But now they're calling him wing. So all of these people that you band are right wing. Okay. Well, that's a problem to Facebook. And again, Facebook and do what they want. It's their it's their platform. However, if they're going to do this and be bias and only. Eliminate voices on the right, which I don't consider Alex Jones to be on the right either. And by the way, neither does he just admitted yesterday that he's not he's not conservative. Thank you. Thank you for that. Admission. But anyway, if you're going to only ban voices that are conservative then. Then you gotta lose your immunity from the government, then I'm sorry. You can't have that that deal that arrangement that you've made with the government that if you're non-bias will protect you from the things that are set on your platform, and you won't be held accountable for them. Well, they're not non-bias. So how can they be immune from prosecution or lawsuits? I mean, I think they lost that ability as far as I'm concerned. But Farrakhan, info wars, Alex Jones, Milo Yannopoulos, Laura Luma have all been banned for being dangerous. There was a a number of others as well that I've I've never heard of. But people associated many of them associated with Alex Jones. And so. It's yeah. I don't like it. It's it's not right. It's just not right. And again, we're not you know this. We're not we're not Alex Jones fans. But that doesn't mean you should ban his voice, let people decide if all the things the ban on all my gosh. He said something about the health of Joe Biden. Yeah. That seems to be the less straw. It's almost like they were just waiting for something anything either that or they just Biden sycophants. I'd well he thinks it's because he's going to win the election for Donald Trump. That's what he said. It is they're afraid of they're afraid of him. Keith. Okay. And so gotta get rid of him. Otherwise, you get the Alex Jones endorsement, you are set your set your all set he proved that last time because he he was four Donald Trump in one. I mean case closed as closed. He certainly had a better track record with candidates than we did. I will say that. Fair point. So this banning thing is is getting out of control and apple has done it. Facebook is doing it. They're also, I guess they've also taken him off Instagram. Is there any political rhetoric on Instagram? I thought that was a bunch of pictures. Isn't it? I mean, isn't it? Instagram, you show photos of your food and recipes, and I've I've got this new outfit. What do you think? Isn't that? True. Yeah. That's basically Instagram Martin of out of politics on Instagram, you go over there lot you find us. Funny stuff any politics going on over there. I didn't think so but they took him off Instagram to. Okay, but Facebook, of course, owns Instagram so clean sweep. Yeah. Just wiped them off of everything. Maybe maybe that's where he flexes his muscles and stuff that could take him off that too. All right. We. Okay. I'm okay with that. Okay. If that's what's happening. He's tearing up shirt and flexing is is Harry muscles. I'm fine. Yeah. Go ahead and take off. We. Agree on their Facebook, Instagram. We are together we stand with Facebook taking heloc Jones off Instagram triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three and Pat unleashed on Twitter. Also, an interesting CNN, Paul. About who would beat Donald Trump in the democrat party. And it's virtually everyone, according to CNN, I don't know what they're doing. I don't know if these are push polls. I don't know if they're legitimate. If they're only polling Democrats. I I don't know what's going on. There is no way. Beto Aurora beats Donald Trump ten points. There is no way. I just I don't buy that for a second. But that's according to the new poll from CNN if he were to win the democrat nomination he would beat Trump by ten percentage points. Former vice president Joe Biden and independent Bernie Sanders. Also, supposedly Trump by about eight and nine percentage points each. Of the six democrat candidates. The survey polled five of them be Trump. The only one who didn't Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas. No, I just I'm sorry. That's I do you buy that at all. Interestingly they also have listed the democrat candidate intake of cash, so far and Bernie Sanders leads by quite a bit Bernie's up to eighteen point two million. Comma, Harris is at twelve million raised so far Belle Aurora who is supposed to be the superstar fundraiser at nine point four million. Most of that was raised in the first day. Remember that he he raised six million? So we raise two thirds of it in one day, and then everything kind of slowed down for him. But he's got nine point four million Pete Buddha. Judge has seven million dollars. The south bend mayor seven million dollars in his presidential campaign fund. Elizabeth Warren six million Amy klobuchar five point two Cory Booker, Scott five and so on down the line even Marianne Williamson. She and author Oprah's favorite like, okay. That's right. She's raised one and a half million. Okay. Wayne mess him. I'm sorry. Wayne mess him. Here's here's a guy. I didn't even know was in the race. Wayne mess him. Can you look him up and for those who don't know? I just want to pretend for a second that I'm unfamiliar. So see what Google says about Wayne mess him? I'll tell you if it's right. Confirm or. Yeah. I will spell his name. I'm gonna act like, I don't know. Okay. M S S A M mess him. He's raised. A whopping. So far you ready for this eighty four thousand dollars? Wow. It's more money than I have right now in my pocket when you're running for president doesn't go very long is the mayor of Miramar, Florida, right? That's right. And the mayor of mill Miramar, Florida. Yeah. Wayne mess him. Yeah. Of course. Sure. Right. Of course, you're gonna take this angle is into this Florida mayor Wayne mess him first of all you can't say Florida mayor nice try to shorthand that US mayor of Florida, Florida mayor Wayne mess him says he doesn't need Washington experience. President no. He doesn't need any experience or money. He doesn't want any money either. Uh-huh. Does he's not getting much, John Delaney. Who was a congressman? He's got three hundred forty five thousand. I I mean, I love this list. I don't know how if you're Wayne mess him. Or if you're Marianne Williamson. Or even if you're John Hickenlooper. How do you how do you look at the the field and say, yeah, I'm the guy I can win this. I got it. I this is mine for the taking and I'm gonna lead this country. Buddies ever heard of you, you know, they put together these exploratory committees. Didn't the exploratory committee until you come back and say Wayne, dude, don't have you know, how long snowball lasts in hell. Yeah. You got less of a chance than that. Everybody. Leave the room. I talked to the mayor of Florida. About this polling. We just got word as mayor Wayne mess him. Well, Florida Floridians are coming through for a man there. He's got he's up to eighty four thousand dollars in his campaign fund. Yeah. He's only registered in one poll, and it was in New Hampshire. He's up to one percent Hampshire. So. Wow. For him. He's been Beto territory. And no that's not a compliment. No Beddoes fading fast. There's mazing. There's a great article here. Trying to find this one paragraph that just sums up. Some sums up what we're Beto is. But basically just talks about how he's blown it, man. Yeah. Yes. Unfortunately, his campaign started backwards. He was white hot at the very beginning. And now he's cooled off a lot this paragraph. You want to have happen read this paragraph for here is the Daily Beast article. According to my unscientific poll asking every woman, I see Beto reminds them of the worst boyfriend they ever had. This is this is problem, even for Democrats self involved convinced of his own charm chronically late if he shows up at all worth a meal or two, but definitely not marriage material. It's a perfect description when he should be home with the kids or taking out the trash, he's jamming with his garage band or skateboarding. What a burger. He's in and out of a funk which requires long meaningful runs to clear his head. Every thought he has transcendent worthy of being narrated videotaped and blog he is always out finding himself at H Forty-six the man asking to run the country is currently lost nailed it. And that's so good. That's why even Democrats aren't enamored with him anymore. They're pretty well. Done with Beto Aurora. Yeah. I think so. All right. Let's talk about pain for a second. It's something I can definitely relate to 'em in near constant pain. And if you are too, it's probably due to inflammation. You might have an injury that causes it. But a lot of times those injuries just get inflamed. And that's where relief factor comes in. And what I love about relief factor is it's natural. It's one hundred percent drug-free. So you're not going to be hooked up. You're not going to be hooked an addict, it's any kind of narcotic and then have to try to win yourself off with that and go through all that entails. I mean, we've seen so many of relief factors clients here at the blaze we've been watching it helped so many employee's and it works for so many people. Here's what you need to do. Just try the three week quickstart. Programme it's nineteen ninety five. You take it for three weeks. If it helps ease your pain gotten Keith completely out of the league pain that he has every day every day. I take that. And then as he's mentioned. Several times when surgeries come up or whatever you gotta stop taking anti inflammatories. The pain comes right back. Absolutely. And I know it's attributed happened. Multiple times, I know relief factor works for me. So give it a try. And and isn't it worth nineteen ninety-five to see if you can be relieved of that pain that continual pain, I think so get your life back with relieffactor in their three week quick start for only nineteen ninety-five. If you want a drug-free natural way to ease your pain, get your life back. Relieffactor dot com. Relieffactor dot com. This is Pat gray unleashed. Then there's Kirsten gillibrand. In fact, we've got this story on her. So just kind of looking over the list, she's not even on the list of. No. She is say Wayne NASA. Gotta be. Yeah. No, she's at three million. Oh, okay. But is that enough? It must not be enough to get her on the debate stage because she is desperate to get sixty five thousand donors. Here's her latest brilliant plan. Here we go unveiled a plan to give to give every voter up to six hundred dollars in what she calls democracy dollars person. We're not a democracy, but these democracy dollars allow them to donate to federal candidates for office. So she's got a clean election plan that would reduce the influence of big money in politics, which is she's not trying to reduce the big money in politics note, starting to get on the debate stage and one of the rules is if you have sixty five thousand individual donors, you're in. Yeah. And so if beer pong doesn't work to help you raise money, which you already dried, then maybe democracy dollars. Will. Crazy. She said if you want to accomplish anything that the American people want it to accomplish what to accomplish. Whether it's healthcare is a right better public schools better economy. You have to take on the greed and corruption that determine everything in Washington under Jila brands plan every eligible voter could register for vouchers to donate up to one hundred dollars in a primary election at one hundred in general, either all at once or in ten dollar increments. Strange some. Yeah. Each participant would get a separate two hundred dollar pool for house Senate and presidential contests. This is crazy staff this man, but to be eligible to receive her democracy dollars a candidate would have to voluntarily agree to forgo any contributions larger than two hundred per donor. It's a big drop from the current maximum of twenty eight hundred for primary and twenty eight for the general elections is stupid. This is a that's a. I hail Mary out dump you have to register for it. I got news for you. Anybody that has propensity devote for Kirstin Jilib rainy taking the time to go into register for democracy dollars. I'm sorry. We have a first amendment where free speech is guaranteed and part of that speech is to be able to contribute to whatever. Candidate you want to. I hate this democrat thing these. These democratic socialists who want to limit eliminate your ability to give to somebody that you really like or for a corporation to donate money to somebody there, really like because I guess corporations are just monolithic machines. There's no people that make up a corporation. They dropped in from outer space. Nobody handed them. They just came in here from another world, and there's a WalMart. This must be what the UFO's are dropping off their drop it off corporations all over the planet. So I think we finally we finally put our finger on navy wants to investigate the US navy there. The government the government in bed when big business foes. I mean, it all makes sense now telling you, we're onto something here. We are on to something. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. And it Pat unleashed on Twitter. His lungs were talking about these incredible candidates for president we had somebody swoop in yesterday to try to save the day. I know you're excited about him is probably as excited about him. As I am. And that's saying something about the the guy who plays with the Seahawks. Yes. So we got NFL Michael Bennett. Michael bennett. Yeah. That's great. That's interesting. Because I always thought that it was politicians would run for office. But yeah, yeah. We have Bennett running. Now a lot of people. A lot of people tweeted yesterday the emailed us. There were calls coming into the building. You guys are lying about Michael Bennett. Right. He's not really running. Are you really are you sure? Some of them did think it was NFL Michael switchboard was literally warm to touch, and we we we had to assure them. No, no. This is this is the Michael Bennett from you know, the Michael Bennett of the senators. Mike Bennett guy goes player. You're right. Right. So as proof I thought. Okay. Well, maybe we better just prove it to people who were just it was too. Good to be true. Tree falls in a forest near. Here. He was on CBS big announcement time this morning yesterday. Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado has served in the US Senate since two thousand and nine also been one of the Democrats considering a run for his may twenty twenty Senator Bennett joins us now only on CBS this morning to announce his plans for the future. Good morning. So what are your plan is no way? This is an exclusive to CBS. How do they do that land the Michael presidential nouncement, man? What a get. That is incredible. While that's a feather in the cap CBS, news producer. Give them a. All right. Here's his here's announcement coming. So what are your plans plan is to run for president? I appreciate your leading. This cutting faces to enormous challenge. One is learning lack of economic mobile opportunities for most Americans and the other is the Neutra store integrity to our government. I think we need to do both. And I've spent the last couple of years writing a book about tremendous challenge over the last ten became convinced in that process. We continue to go down the path we're going, and this isn't just about President Trump. It's politics forty got. There certainly has made matters worse. But if we keep going down this road, and we're going to be the first generation of Americans less than our children in the next generation. I I just need to do everything I can do to make sure that we don't do that. It just becomes diarrhea of the mouth after a while. Shut up. So there it is. You know, we just had to prove it to you. Because I know people thought no way do we have that good a choice? It just doesn't happen anymore. Not since our founders like Michael Bennett run. I mean, thankfully that. There's hope now we'll be tween him in Wayne mess him. One should be the others. Vice president shouldn't be messing Bennett or bit mess. Him twenty twenty. I'm going to have to go Bennett mess him as a venomous and better ring to it does. Bennett mess him. Wait. What did you say? You said Ben. We're going Bennett messing twenty. Yes. I mean that should have been self evident. Keith I'm surprised you even had to. But again again, kudos, you know. CBS you're done that. Right. Wow. But I will say one thing that bugs me about Bennett is at only has the one at the end. And I think you and I disagree on this policy. We do I think that's that's judicious use of a consonant. He there's no need for this second. I'm just used to the to tease guess we're used to it. But that's a lot right? That's why we're twenty two trillion in debt right now because we keep wasting so hold on. ES S A M O AM. So he's not. Nothing feels like Massimo. Okay. So Bennett mess them twenty twenty. Let's start printing the bumper stickers right now. The other thing is something that became really clear yesterday. Because the releasing details now the FBI did. In fact, spy on the Donald Trump campaign as he has said all along journey about this in the paper. Kevin. Them. Interesting article. There was conversation at a London bar September twenty sixteen took his strange turn. When the woman sitting across from George Papadopoulos, Trump campaign adviser asked a direct question. The is the Trump campaign working with Russia. The woman had set up the meeting to discuss foreign policy issues, but she was actually a US government investigator posing as a research assistant. The FBI sent this woman to London as part of the counter intelligence inquiry opened that summer to better understand the Trump's campaign links to Russia while are they doing this for everybody. Or did they do that with Hillary Clinton? I've seen. No mention of that. The American government's -ffiliated with the woman who said her name was Azra Turk is has been previously unreported in the the operation. That's become a political flashpoint. Last year. President Trump called spy gate pretty good name for it. The decision to use her in the operation aimed at a presidential campaign. Campaign officials shows the lever level of alarm inside the F B I during a frantic period. When the bureau was trying to determine the scope of Russia's attempts to disrupt the twenty sixteen election. But could also give 'em, oh, of course, to the president and supporters for their spying claims will. Yeah, it's not proof positive. That the Trump campaign was spied upon and the one thing they don't mention because anyone to consider this did Barack Obama order it. I mean, Trump has always said Obama's fine on him. Then we find out. Yeah. To the extent where they sent an F B I agent all the way to London to try to get information from them. I've never heard of this before maybe it's happened. I've never heard of it before. This is crazy stuff spokesman for the FBI declined to comment as did a lawyer for the FBI last year. Bill Bill pre step, then the bureau's top counter intelligent agents agent who is a deeply involved in the Russia. Inquiry told congress during a closed-door hearing there was no FBI conspiracy against President Trump or his campaign. This is deep state stuff that Mike Lee was talking about. Yes, it is actually existed and agencies with an agent of the government. Now, we've got proof. All right. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three if you're having a hard time with portions when you sit down to a meal, reduce own could could be just what you need to put you over the edge. There is a stop light in her body called Oei. It sends that signal to your brain that your full now. And sometimes it's just not strong enough will rid us own is made of only in fact, that's all that's in it. And so it helps send a stronger signal to your brain your full stop eating in my case. It ends the sentence with fatty. So it's really effective. And then it tells you to go look at a mirror and see what I'm talking about. Yeah. It's mazing amazing stuff. Plus, it's not a stimulant. You're not gonna get all jittery from using it. There's no caffeine in it rid us dot com. Go there right now. Get a special offer. The dot com. Rid us own dot com. Great. Hundred thirty three ninety three and on Twitter at Pat unleashed where Abner normal tweets. Yeah. That's people. Just call him for short abnormal or or a when mentioning democrat politicians just substitute Democrats with lying sex crap. And everyone will know who you're talking about. I'm going to try that. So we have how many how many candidates in the lying sack of crap field. So far twenty one Twenty-one Lang sex of crap go in for president on the. Left. Henry Keith's favorite traffic camera to its pets? Clearly, Mr. Twitter on the socials. But no one is ever accused him of being Mr. Instagram. That's true. That's true. But you are Mr. Twitter, absolute, autumn's electric razor. Wait. If Bernie Sanders has more campaign contributions of the rest of the candidates shouldn't he distribute them equally on all the candidates. Yes. Job. Comes electric razor. That's garbage guitar Rhody. Oh, admitted Pat you're just jealous because CBS scored the big Michael Bennett interview. And you could only get Mike Lee on your orange couch. Economy. Well, so transparent look at the gays looks like you can just it's sad. It's sad. When it knows we're talking about it. Nobody's on it. But I wanna hold that shot. Rob. This is the the the fireplace burn that has about east side Ilia fireplace charring right here. Which just it gives the couch a certain a good, unison claw. If you will. Yeah. It's nice. Can we go back to that shot two? Okay. Just to give you an idea of how much stuff look at the look at the countertop. That's all this stuff. Plus more on my computer. That's why we're so jam packed filled to the gills from Joe groping Joe's cafe watch out for the Bennett Messim. Autumn. Joe message mental remember Joe mental. Would it be finished like? What was it finishing third place or something in New Hampshire? Right. Who was Joe come on, man? I'll Gore's running mate. Joe lieberman. Thank you. And he called a Joe minimum. Jevons bundle adventure. This Bennett guy makes John Kerry looked like a firebrand you've got that. Right. Well, there's a there's a Chazan between me and Michael Bennett. Terrible. Comparison is there's a Chaz of their personally raped cut off ears. Cut off head heads taped wired telephones human. Power out. Uh-huh. Bodies randomly shot videos. Razed villages fashion reminiscent of Jinja's con shot cattle and dogs for fun poisoned food stocks. That's maybe the worst of it all when they poisoned the foon. Yes, stocks and everybody's like what happened to our phone. Yeah. We poise into here and. Indicative, we are. That's how vengeful we are the United States of America. We're not allowing you access to your food anymore, generally rather the country. But, you know, look at the way it was dressed. Yeah. It was completely new it deserved to be ravaged higher countries. So that was the two thousand four lying sack of crap nominee that we just heard from there that that was on fire like this firebrand, Michael Bennett point by the two thousand four was also the last time a Republican won the presidency and the popular vote. That's why that's why Democrats are so pissed off right now 'cause with George W in two thousand and with Trump in twenty sixteen and that really hurt him just did not expect that and. But that's the way the cookie crumbles. They let's see what was the eighteen seventy six is that the last time I happened before. I don't know. I'm not sure might have been. I don't know. Let's see can't be that hard to find something to a new fangled deal. See that's what the Democrats are still smarting from the Samuel Tilden eighteen seventy six election when they had four point three million votes to Rutherford b Hayes is mere four point three six million votes. And she's so they're still smarting from that. So hold on all three hasn't been others. So anytime there's four is it been five. Is it always the Republicans that come out of hat? Not sure. But apparently trivia in that case as well. Look that up triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three also congress little upset with William bar attorney general bar not showing up at the hearing yesterday. I think he'd had enough of the grilling and the insanity and the insults and the insinuation and all of that stuff. So he said, yeah, I'm not I'm not going through this again. Good. Luck with your little hearing there. But it was fascinating the other day when Dianne Feinstein was grilling William bar, you gotta take a look at that exchange. This is fun. But you still have a situation where president essentially tried to change. The lawyers account in order to prevent further criticism himself. Well, that's not a crime. Oh, okay. That's so great how she's just dumbfounded. Let's see that one more time. That's just plain fun. That's good old fashioned fun. The look on her face still have a situation where president essentially tries to change. Centrally. The the lawyers account in order to prevent further criticism of himself. Well, that's not a crime. Know what to do with that? Senator. Well, that's not a crime will. Yeah. But we didn't like it. Yeah. So since I don't like. Impeach him right now. In fact, we don't like this president. So anyway. With that in your pipe. Smoke it. There's no smoking in this building. So is not never mind. Man, they need something. They want anything. Just give us something AG bar will because they really do have nothing. This is a it's a non issue now. I wish we could move on. But of course, we're not going to and Jerry Nadler yesterday House Judiciary committee, chairman threaten to hold AG bar in contempt of congress because he didn't show up. So that'll be fun too. And I'm sure they will because they're that spiteful. How tear you defy us. We are the elites don't you understand who it is. You're dealing with. And then the stupidity of Representative Steve Cohen yesterday from from Tennessee. Because William bar wasn't there. He brought with him a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken while lawmakers in the press waited to see show up on the hill. He then left the bucket along with the ceramic chicken on the table where bar would have been. There. It is right there. There's your little photo of what a clever little trick. That was. Now. See can we get that first shot? You had of Steve Cohen. I'd like to look at C, technically, he has more hair than me. But it's just not placed got a mullet going on. So you're bald with a mullet. I'm not sure that I'm not sure that works. Also, the the shine from his bald head is enough to burn your retina getting there. That's true. Wow. Getting there with shine triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three we've been telling you about home tied luck for a while. And I know what happens in these things you hear it at the time. And you think oh my gosh. Yeah. I don't want that to happen to me. I gotta get on that. And then you put it off, and it doesn't get done. And in the meantime, thieves are doing their darndest to find your title online and steal it from you as happened in this particular case, I thought I had an okay render in one of my homes. Boy was I wrong. The. Police called title fraud tenant forged his name his name on my home's title. You wouldn't think you'd be able to do that? But it is pretty easy for these guys who know what they're doing. Then he borrow two hundred thousand dollars using my property as collateral. He took off, and I didn't find out anything about this until I got a foreclosure, notice, you just don't want this to have to to happen to you. And then have to deal with it. And it's really tough to reverse so go to home, title LOC dot com while you're thinking about it. Register your home they'll throw in a free title skin report, one hundred dollar value. You get that up front for free. So get some peace of mind that this can't happen to you. Go to home tied LOC dot com. That's home tied a lot dot com. Right. Yesterday, of course was helium Thursday. And we've got some great people who just just to celebrate helium Thursday. Yeah, we weren't even doing on the show on my appearance with Glenn that he was doing that. Yeah. So anyway, Dan does at the dream shape. Dan took this and ran with it and yesterday. He put Al Sharpton on some helium and fun, ensued. Three months. We must. We will that be. Zest? Thank. Rush limbaugh. So I'm by hosts of God. Yes mockery. Yes. Did they Antoni Antoni mean? Emails say. Lucienne and gallium thing. Leo. Can be one him do. They want him back. Doings and Ralph. Good evening. That is. Priceless. Gooding? Nice little end with the visual. Pat unleashed shortly. That's that's a really good. Great job for that. Dan. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three Pat unleashed on Twitter. You know is conspicuously missing on this list of. Of campaign cash on hand from these Democrats. It goes all the way from Bernie Sanders down to Wayne mess him is only collected forty eighty four thousand starter. I mean, it's a slow come on. You know, who's not listed at all is Eric swallow has he not raised eight above eighty four thousand dollars. Okay. Hold on. I'm gonna look this up as important as Eric is with that. Incredible reminder that gave us, you know. I mean, he he more than things Keith. He knows how how important is. He's the one who pointed out to us that the word woman. That's true doesn't appear in the US constitution. But you know, what we should thank him for that. Because at least it has people talking about the constitution. So I say we capitalize this and taken for to to educate Americans about what is in the. Constitution. And maybe more broadly. What's not in it? You know when we talked about this a little bit yesterday. But I I didn't mention the fact that the word beaver is conspicuously missing from the US constitution hall. We gotta fix. In fact, the word beaver is not in any of our founding documents. We should have paid all tell you this. We should've paid better attention to Praca when he reminded us knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices have to change our conversation. We're gonna have to change our traditions. Our history, we're gonna have to move into a different place. Obviously was Michelle reminding us about that. Here's what Barack mentioned. About this incredible problems. But I think it is an imperfect document, and I think it is a document that reflects some deep flaws in American culture. Okay. So we got deep flaws. We should've paid better tension to the deep flaws right because how can it not be deeply flawed? When beavers are completely left out. But okay in all seriousness. Oh, you weren't being wait. No. I am. But even more serious than that thought. We should we should expand on this and talk about other things that are not in the constitution. For instance, the phrase separation of church and state not in the constitution. It's a phrase, that's recited. So frequently it's becoming greened in our collective sensibility. That speaking of God in a government building or saying prayer at school is unconstitutional. They're not. The supreme court can make all the faulty decisions they want it doesn't change. The fact that the establishment clause is really clear and concise congress will make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof period. The end. Anything short of that is constitutional. Well, you can't you can't show favoritism or or over one religion over another. Well, yeah, there's nothing about that. In the constitution. Well, what what if people are offended by a display on government property tough. The look at it. It's just that simple. You you know, what else is not in the constitution abortion? There is zero right to abortion in the constitution. In fact, quite the opposite. Just read the preamble we the people of the United States in order to form a more perfect union establish Justice insure domestic tranquility provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. Establishes constitution for the United States of America. So who is our posterity our children both born and unborn. And they have been guaranteed the right to life and liberty by the constitution and the declaration of independence. Another thing not in the constitution healthcare. As much as Democrats scream about healthcare is a right? No, it isn't there's no right to free healthcare. There's no right to a free college education. There's no right to a guaranteed income. Is that why what an oversight? Nope. Are brilliant founders made the constitution a charter of negative liberties spells out what the government can't do to its citizens. And by limiting the power of the government. They maximize the freedom. We have. The freedom that people can enjoy it allows us to just take our hard-earned work on our talent as far as we possibly can it enables the people while keeping the government at bay. So they can't get in your way. And they knew that the government would do everything they could to get in your way. So if you had a charter of positive liberties, you can't possibly name them. All right. You can't you can't foresee every little thing that the government is going to try to do which is why it is charter of negative liberties, you can't do these things to the people. Just really simple, and and basic, so yeah, Eric swallow. Let's talk about the things that are not in the US constitution. Let's have that conversation in America. Because there is a unlike race there's a conversation that we have rarely if ever had certainly not since the constitution was written and ratified. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three amazing information and update on former Kansas City chief tyreek hill, his abusive, his son, pretty amazing share that with you. Plus a lot more here. A pack rail unleashed. It's Pat gray unleashed on the play. And if you'd like to reach us Tripoli nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three, you can tweet us Pat unleashed Tyler Morgan tweets, bald with a mullet is a scarlet for future reference. I like Skillet. Yeah. I didn't know that you got a bald mullet skull. Representative Steve Cohen gonna see areas with the scarlet a handsome man right there. Oh, yeah. Bringing fried chicken bucket of KFC into the house chamber, his implication. There is that William bars chicken. I know you are. But what am I? Same to you. But twice as much more of it there. It is. That's so ridiculous for you. Pat, fat hat head. Kristen tweets. I haven't seen Democrats this unhinged since yesterday. Bottled LA pats, orange couch should announce its candidacy for the twenty twenty election. That's a great idea. That is a great idea. I like it a lot. Raise money for him. Set up. Go from gofundme page for the orange Kaushal. We probably do better than was Wayne mess him. And he's eighty four thousand dollars. Interesting letter that was just sent to the NFL on behalf of Kansas City chief tyreek hill now if you missed this. He. Was accused of of abusing his son and his he and his girlfriend were in Dubai for some reason they were walking through the airport terminal and just started this discussion that somebody recorded. I assume the girlfriend do we do we still have that access to that conversation? Okay. They're gonna look for that here. So as a result of that conversation that was played the Kansas City. Chiefs have kind of suspended him right now. I don't think they've made a permanent decision on yet. He's not with the team. They're trying to figure out get some more facts on this that which is smart. Yeah. And I guess the local DA said, look, we're not gonna we're not going to charge anybody because it's hard to figure out who did this. And we were thinking, are you kidding me? Right. Pretty clear he's talking about. Anyway this. Here's the audio. Why did say? Take a lot of things. The lying about what happened. Okay. And then there was a kind of a nasty little segment where she says, he's he's a he's frightened of you or scared to death of you or something. Say that he respects you. But it's not it's not respect its terrify. He is terrified. Terrified of it's pretty. Yeah. That's that's not good. Not good. And she seems very convincing. She does she's saying, she's she's very believable. I was leaving it. Then it seems like he's developed a pattern, and maybe she's even part of the pattern based on what he said there. Well, now, this is an interesting. Little twist four page letter and a copy was obtained by the Associated Press and so- hill tyreek hill. Now, categorically denies he's ever punched his son in the chest or anywhere on his body or otherwise touched him in the chest in a mean-spirited manner. The NFL has declined to comment the chiefs of declined to comment, but listen to this. New exchange, and I guess this would be tween. The couple a forensic examiner has has looked through all kinds of text messages from Tariq in the girlfriend. And in one of those exchanges. Tariq hill tells us girlfriend after their trip to do by crystal. You know, I didn't cause any bruising or harm to our sun. But for some reason, I still may be charged. Girlfriend replies. I know you didn't. I did. I hurt our son. I'm the one that did it. I was hurt and mad. So I blame you for everything. Happening. Now, I'll tell you exactly what we have in my opinion, in my opinion, not to besmirch anybody's character. 'cause I don't know. I wasn't there. We know the kid has broken arm. Very sad. We don't know who did it. And she claims right here. He didn't. And she knows it. But she did it did it, you don't suppose there's a chance do you that he said? Crystal. This is costing my NFL career, and tens of millions of dollars from what you would benefit as well. My career goes down the tube. So does my livelihood. Might want to say that you did it. If you wanna live a really comfortable lifestyle for the rest of your life. You might want to send this text. Is that possible? There was a little conversation along those lines. Yeah. I mean, you can just imagine the scenario you can just imagine how that went down. And I think we'll do that. Now. Sigma tweed like to call. Do. Personally rate. No different. Hey, crystal. I you know, I didn't cause any bruising or harm to our sun. But for some reason, I still may be charged and Mike lose millions of dollars in contract money. I know you didn't. I did. I hurt our son. I go one that did it. Yes. I was hurt and mad. So did you blame me for everything? I blamed you for everything. I knew it. Why don't you? Now, tell everybody that is the case, I think I will. Of course, we don't have any. We don't have any inside knowledge went down. There's more here. Tyreek when I get out of prison. We still love me. Of course, I will Honey, I know it was just a one time incident that you would never hurt our son. I will as a rule to be a better person. If she's not married. What's a guarantee she's going to be making those millions with him when she gets out of jail. Thank you for joining us felicitous owed of douchebag. I mean, so obvious to me to me, maybe not a jury because it's twenty nineteen and I have no idea, but this is. And you'd love to believe it because I I don't know. I hate I hate it. When these guys throw their lives away like that. When you've got so much promise they have the world by the tail you can do anything. Now, you're gonna make millions of dollars could be set up for life. You could really help people. You know, you can get involved in your community. You can get involved in charities. You could set up another business. So that you're you're going to do. Well after football is over. The whole world is opened up to you. And then, you know, all you have to do is conduct yourself with basic human decency. And you're gonna be fine. And they can't seem to do it. Don't assault little kids kind of like a good rule of thumb. Yeah. And then the realization sinks in all my gosh. Chiefs just dumped him, and he may never work in the NFL again ever. And so both are like, yeah. Okay. Louis better get that text going. That will turn it over to the prosecutors. Yeah, will reluctantly give up our cell phones. But man, I want to say this is under protest. Okay. When you open it up. I maybe speak conveniently open to that text where she. I'm sure everything you need right there officer, let me just unlock the phone for you here. And okay, there you go. I'll look dad coincidence. I think everything you need right there on the screen for user. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three to be interesting to see how that turns out a Maryland woman's discovery in an old piano more than twenty five years ago really paid off this week the m one oh one dash four Babe Ruth rookie card. She found in a stuck pedal in the piano, the piano, she bought for twenty five bucks. Twenty five dollars. So then stuck in the pedal. They find this Babe Ruth rookie card, and they sold it at an auction this week for a hundred and thirty thousand fifty three dollars. She found the card in nineteen Ninety-two. Inter aunts, piano and kept it secret until deciding to sell it this year. Really smart. Well, her aunt kept the piano in her home, though, Kelly noted she never remembers it working. It was kept in the family after the death of the ant, and then put in a family estate sale in nineteen Ninety-two she paid twenty five bucks for it since she wanted to play it. She had a friend come over to fix the pedal and tune it. Then they found the problem. One hundred twelve baseball cards were jammed inside the pedal. How? She told she said her father or ankle, you know, likely stash the cards to keep them from being thrown out by Nora who was a neat freak. That's awesome. So then she says she decided to auction. It all off to help care for her brothers medical condition. Really and buy new vehicle as truck is breaking down. That's really nice to great story. That is cool. It's like a dream. Everybody has finding something at a garage sale or an estate sale or whatever and something valuable is jammed into it, and nobody knew about. Yeah. And it'd be nice sounds like nice. She's very lucky because if the aunt was, you know, state sale anyone could've walked off in that Pano for cheap. No. Yeah. But she got in there before everything went public that could have been discovered by someone completely related to the family. And then she'd be a hundred and thirty thousand dollars poorer. But that's cool. That's really cool. Yeah. I always want to go and buy like a stupid picture of like a potted plant you peel off the back, and there's an original constitution in there. Oh, that's a dream in going up in my in my home in back on the mean streets of Helena. Yeah. My parents had this old painting that they don't know where they couldn't remember where they got it or how much it cost but somebody came over one time and was supposedly an art aficionado. They said, oh my gosh. You've got a so and so. And we're like, well, I don't know. Do we? Yes, that's an original so-and-so. You gotta play Koi. Yep. Yep. Here in the family room. You should go have that appraised. I think it might be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. Oh, no. Well, they never really got around to it kind of weird. But when my mom died in my dad's been gone for you know, since nineteen Ninety-seven, so we finally took it into somebody. And it really was worth thirty eight dollars. So. So when without the frame without the frame, the framing probably bring another stranger come into your life. The years ago. So for how many years we thinking we're thinking man one day, we're onto something that potted plant painting to fall back on. Oh that hurts man should have. You know, what you should have it to this guy here? Go sell this at auction. Avi. It'd be great. You're going to be set for lunch. Maybe where you go shipping would would've cause more than the. Maybe you can go to chick fillet with this. I don't know. Oh nice. All right. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three. Let me tell you about real estate agents. I trust dot com because selling or buying a home is really tough. It's a process that you don't wanna have to navigate and you don't like giving a percentage of the money to the agent. But. It's really important to have a great agent. It really is. Because if your home sits on the market for a long time, you're just gonna lose value. People are going to wonder what's wrong with it. I mean, that's a I thought we had in fact when we came to. When we came to live in Dallas Fort Worth. And we looked at the first house. We looked at. Was had been built in the nobody lived there. And it had been I think three years, we're like, wow. We love the house. But we thought something must be wrong with this. So we looked at fifty more homes and didn't like any of them as much as the first one came back in. Finally, that's the one we bought and really, you know, it's great. I don't know why it's at there. But the perception drives down the price. Right. And that's why we got the house at a really for a really good deal in realtors have to know that kind of stuff they gotta know the market. They have to know the comparables in the neighborhood. It's all important. The can't do this part time dabble in it. It's got to be a real commitment that they have plus all of these agents real estate agents. I trust dot com are fans of of the show. And so they have a lot in common with you. Don't hire a friend or a relative that just doesn't work out go to real estate agents. I trust dot com. We'll introduce you to the best agent in your area real. State agents. I trust dot com. Dispatch rate. People are. Up in arms over captain marvel. Well, do you know that a white woman is playing captain marvel? Oh, you can't have that. That's just so so very wrong instead to destroy all copies of that movie. Why are there white people? Eight it. Yeah. That's eight zero white people. Why I'm with you? We wouldn't have a white problem. If it weren't for all these white people. And here's another one. Yes. She's a woman, but she's white Breen Larsen plays, captain marvel. Well, there's a demand now. By several groups they want her to step down from the role. And prove that she's an ally to social Justice right by ensuring that a gay woman of color plays the rule. So a a black lesbian must be kept in marvel. I don't know. Why was the original was the original captain marvel black lesbian being told? No was the original captain marvel black. Yes, or no. I think they made some sort of. She made an appearance it looks like and longtime ago in one thing and then apparently slipped off into obscurity after several name changes and the character change quite a bit. But before it, you know for she had her own. Line if you will her own story, and then once that came around when they actually made her into a character. It looks like home. I gosh ally was a white woman. Oh, no. No boy. Okay. So I I'm not sure how the how that makes sense that you must I guess all characters. Now, do they all have to be gay women? Maybe that's the deal. Maybe every new movie character has to be gay transvestite transgendered person or a person of color. No more white people in movies, please. We're just done with white. We actually had one director say. He can't imagine ever giving a role casting a white, man. White doesn't even need to apply and stuff. So great. She's. We're in an upside down world as I think, you know, founding fathers are also under attack right now students at Hofstra. University are demanding that the Thomas Jefferson statue on on campus be removed. Yeah. The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus. It's been defaced with the word decolonize and black lives matter signs and stickers on it. Foof? So there's a big protest now every year, and in fact, multiple times a year about getting rid of it. They stand around the around the statue and demand that it be torn down. Go study. It is about what the statue represents a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses. That's what Thomas Jefferson represents you. She's the organizers of this our students from Hofstra and some staff members from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County. Oh, so, you know, their quality individuals. Look, I who am I to judge. I'm just saying these people are going to burn in the fires of hell. That's all. I mean, I, you know, judge anyone so no I'm just saying I'm just saying. I am so tired of the Thomas Jefferson hatred, the George Washington hatred, which they're also is we've got this story about a northern California Public school. They may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of get this, George Washington heights. Yes. Because of confer concerns, it's offensive and demeaning to native Americans in African Americans. I mean open up a book. A working group determined the mural made up of several panels traumatizes students and community members. If it traumatizes these little darlings, they need to just stay home K homeschool where nothing bad can ever happen. And they can see only what's on the walls of your home. Don't let them stray outside ever for any reason. So tired of this advocates for keeping the mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history. Yeah. Well, I mean, somebody said once those that we're going to have to make sacrifices have to change our conversation for station. We're gonna have to change our tradition history based the move into a different place. So I guess what we ask ourselves is is removing a statue of Thomas Jefferson and erasing mural of George Washington. Isn't that fulfilling everything she just said there and more it absolutely is? This is what this is about. In nineteen thirty six this artist of Victor Amitav painted, the thirteen panels that make up the life of Washington. Keep in mind again. This is George Washington high school. Detail dinner. He was a prominent Russia baron painter who created the murals as part of a works project administration project undertaken by the new deal. Wait a minute. Something good came about to say, I was on the side of leaving the mural found out. It was a make work project as amazing. She's the group has four public meetings between December twenty eighteen in February twenty nineteen so and just a few months they've already had four public meetings. Oh, right and got input and the group's recommendation archive the mural to to protect the experience of students. So they've experienced student. Yeah. They wanna paint over it. Maybe I don't know maybe educate these little darlings little dears these little dumplings on who these guys really were. And what they were all about. And where they would be without him. Maybe I don't know. Good. Golly. It's sometimes it just feels like we need we need to turn the country off which is need to shut it off. Somebody find the on off. Switch and just flip it down it down. Yep. The last one out is turn off the country when you're done. All right. But before we do that though. Can we please make sure that captain marvel is a person of? Thank you for that. Yes. Yes. We may not turn off the country until we get a black lesbian to play captain marvel because that's really important to all of us to all of us triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three.

One eight hundred eight patriot or at patriot mobile dot com slash blaze. Pat, gray on me. Nine hundred thirty three ninety three and that unleashed on Twitter this movement to remove statues to paint over murals of founding fathers. I it's just so agonizing. So important that we educate these kids this generation on who these people were and what they did. And help them understand. Okay. How could they have been slave owners in still be really quality individuals? Help them understand that this was a system. That was a flick did on this continent by the British. And once we won our independence. It had already been so ingrained that you had the economy of the south that absolutely depended on it. So in order to not lose the south keep a union together and start this country. I think most of us can agree the greatest country there's ever been. It was worth saving worth keeping together worth founding. And so they couldn't immediately get rid of slavery. But they got rid of it faster than any other country on earth. How long did Britain have the slave trade four hundred years? We had it for what seventy. Yeah. And wasn't that one of the things that Thomas Jefferson was trying to list as a grievance against the king? Yes. One of them anything and because of the southeast to take it out. Yeah. And always reminds your friends wasn't it overage, Jerry who circus's said, you know, what if they're the south wanted one of the slaves to count for representation. That would help in congress under one, and and Elvis Jerry was like ho I thought you said they were property they're not human being's. Right. So why don't we just count the chairs down there? Yeah. And you can use that to a portion congress. So you've got a lot of facts to show that these founding fathers were not racist. In fact, Thomas Jefferson could even sell his slaves because of LOL. Yeah. Or you couldn't he couldn't get rid of them. He couldn't just send them make them free. It was illegal to to free your slate of free them. That's what I meant to say. Yes. And it just you have the facts on your side. If people will take two seconds to engage in listen. There was a really short window where when you died you. It was okay by Virginia law to for your slaves, which George Washington did upon his death. Then they repealed that law, and especially if you had debt at the at the end of your life. There was no way you could free your sleeves and that was the case for Thomas Jefferson. So we always hear this weather flawed too complicated. Yeah, everybody's flood and complicated. But the things they did. I mean, these were fifty six of the best men ever gathered together on this planet at the same time. And to see them dragged through the mud by all these idiotic college students in high school students. Just we we shouldn't we shouldn't be putting up with this. We should be educating them. Let's help them understand. Why why our history is so important stop trying to change it. They are a product of one hundred years of progressive education. Yeah country. They sure are. And it really shows. And that's why so many of them are these pro-abortion activists that we just on San Antonio yesterday. He's Planned Parenthood supporters infiltrated this. I guess they call it a fetus graveyard. Some pro-life people put up little crosses for all the babies to represent the babies that had been aborted. And so these Planned Parenthood supporters showed up, and here's here's what they did. What? On what extent? In your proudly. I'm super proud of it. Stream. Okay. It looks like we have an officer a couple of officers on site. Fringing on your. I can't hear y'all. Plan. The idea. Wow. Okay. That's just evil just evil. Why would you be that happy about ending the life of your of your baby? Why? Such a weird again. This is a death cult. They are part of a death cult an evil death cult. I can see if you thought fully had an abortion because you know, who knows of the things that are going on to your life. But this person these girls are excited about it. Happy about it. Proud of it. And she's chanting. I'm so slutty, I got pregnant, and I had an abortion. Okay. All right. And then she says Jesus still loves me. Well, yeah, that's true. He's not happy with right now. That's for sure. He's not happy with your abortion. But does he love yet? Sure. I love my kids too. When they when they do stupid things, but I'm not happy about the stupid things. They're going to do that they're doing and I'm going to chastise them for it. And there's no shame at all. None. I mean, they are proud. They are gloating. That is just heinous it's despicable. And it's it's evil. It really is. This abortion thing is come soul far so fast. Wow. I mean, what happened to safe legal and rare. Nobody likes abortion. We're always told that by the left. Hey, look, nobody loves abortion. Nobody likes abortion. It's just a necessary thing we have to do sometimes because the woman has to have the right to choose. That's out the window. Yeah. Yeah. People do love abortion. They just showed you. They love abortion. I think what we're seeing happening now is. That those were pro-abortion we're winning all these years for the last fifty years had hardly any resist argument to themselves. We wouldn't talk about it. We didn't want front. We're not gonna change anyone's mind wife and have a conversation about it. It's made them rabbit. And now that people are pushing back, and there's been legislation that have defended life, and there's movie, and there's a cultural push in polls have changed. And now more people in America are pro-life them pro-abortion. Now, they are feeling their back into a corner. And they are they're showing their teeth, and they are so over the top now. But that I think is what this is a product of speaking of which speaking of movies if. Unplanned is still showing somewhere in in your area. Go see at this weekend. It is so good such a worthy movie to be seen. And and it will help people understand if you have anybody on the fence about this. I doubt any abortion activists like those buffoons would be moved by unplanned, the first of all they wouldn't consider going. But if you've got somebody who's, you know, serious and thoughtful, take them to see unplanned the movies made seventeen million dollars it's done. Okay. It's done pretty well only cost six million to make. But that should be one hundred million dollar movie. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. And at Pat unleashed on Twitter.

Good morning guys Friday. Yes. The week. Yeah. Things. I wanted to bring up one is, you know, being from Tennessee. I am really disgusted about a Representative. Steve Cohen, representing us his chicken jokes there the airing. And the other thing was I definitely support the orange couch running for president for funding. I think you should check the couch cushions. Oh, let me check. It's a good idea. Never know you never know. Thanks for. We've got a coffee state, and we've got plenty of dirt and grime and clip crap and corruption underneath it. Whatever. Jiffy eight here last week. Nobody's vacuumed under that since that thing was built in like nineteen twelve. I can't believe you touched it. Who knows what kind of nasty living organisms are on getting my shots today. Nicely. All right. Let me tell you about home tied lock. This is something I didn't even know about a year ago. I had no idea people can steal your house. What? So what are they back up a trailer and lifted up off the foundation and drive away from you wouldn't notice it having notice and that would be a difficult process. Yeah. It isn't. They don't have to do any of that. They just go online. Find your titled transfer it to a quick, title, deed, and your state the forged your signature. You'll be amazed. How easy all that? Is. And how good your signature looks when they forged it. When home title showed me the process, and they found my title online. I gave him almost no information. They found it anyway. And there was I was looking right at my signature, and I thought yeah, that's my signature. How'd you get that? Now, forged it. So if you don't want this to happen to you, go to home tied LOC dot com for pennies a day. They'll put a barrier around your home's title in mortgage. In.

Gray is on leased. Oh, guess what? Remember, the statement from AOL see that the Veterans Administration isn't broken. So we're not gonna fix it. There are some veterans who actually disagree with that. Really? Wait disagreed with. No, what do the no? Agree with AO. See, they don't know. Veterans of all political stripes overwhelmingly support reform that would allow military health benefits to be used outside the VA healthcare system. According to a new poll reform efforts have come under scrutiny in recent weeks due to comments made by AO, see. If it ain't broke don't fix it. She said the idea that this thing isn't broken this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed optimize tinkered with until you don't even recognize it anymore is a myth. We need to not be recognizable. That's problem. And she doubled down on it this last weekend. And again called it a myth an overwhelming majority of veterans kind of disagree with her. But what do you mean by overwhelming when you talk about fifty five sixty percent of veterans? Ninety percent. Well, you don't see that in any poll. Ninety percent of people don't agree on anything. Seriously. You could say the sky is blue ninety percent of people wouldn't agree. I don't know you'd get that. But ninety percent of veterans support having the choice to use their VA healthcare benefits outside of the existing system. Why? Because for so many of them this system sucks. It's inevitable. It's run by the government. It literally kills our veterans. When veterans were notified in the poll that choosing to go outside the VA system for care could lead to additional out of pocket costs. They still support it at seventy nine percent. Maybe ale see should've talked to some of these guys before she spouted off if you know, everything why are you gonna waste your time. Right. That's true. That's true. Both veterans who identify as Republicans. Who voted for who said ninety ninety three percents that they disagree with AOL and Democrats eighty eight percent. They all supported increase choice. Ninety two percent of senior citizens also support the option, so. I'm surprised that she was wrong about something. I don't think we've ever found anything. She's been right about though, come to think of it. Is there one thing on which we agree. Yeah. You know me. I don't think so. Speaking of disagreeing with these politicians seventy five percent of Americans. Also, disagree with Bernie Sanders plan to let every US prisoner vote. Now that should be higher natural be ninety eight percent. One hundred percent. But roughly seventy five percent of people don't agree with Sanders that all prisoners should have voting rights. Well, overall, thirty five percents at current inmates should be allowed to vote. But most of those people said this should only apply to non violent offenders twenty four percent of people believe those convicted of violent offenses should be permanently disenfranchised even after released from prison. You know, like, I mean, that's a tough one. Once you paid your debt to society, you know, maybe you get your voting rights back. We'll talk about that. But I certainly don't wanna talk about people voting while they're in prison that is just dumb. It's asinine. I don't see how anyone could get on board with that. He's he's adamant I I know he stuck to it. Despite the fact that the polls against him. Maybe that's where he's seen a path. That's my path to be the president the having current prisoners able to vote for me. Well that path is put him twenty four points behind Joe Biden. So by not be a very good path. Then we've got this Alabama democrat, did you? He can't read about paper. Crazy. Baber? This is the kill them now or you kill them later die. Yeah. So we've got they were debating abortion in the Alabama house, and this guy chimed in and it's pretty interesting. Here's what he had to say. It all choice to be a woman's joins the male Taylor woman would do about it. Okay middle. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know what directly herself. Some kids run wanted. Kill him. Now. One. Breezing? I think we should be making. Shouldn't be making the decision. Okay. All right. So you can kill them now or you can kill them later in the electric chair, which well talk about judging someone's life before they've even had a chance to live it, sir. Oof. Right seriously, when you send people to the electric chair normally, it's it's not for jaywalking. Normally they've done something really serious to deserve that penalty. So that's kind of the difference. The unborn child has done nothing to deserve the death penalty. Maybe that's ninety there. So adamant these pro-abortionists, maybe that's why they are. So over the top, and there's Ella snus for for killing these kids before they come on the world. They know something we don't they know that everybody gets aborted is going to be a serial killer. If they get to see the light of day. So weird assumption. That's what they're saying. Apparently. This is a Alabama Representative John Rogers, by the way, he also responded to Donald Trump junior calling him out for his remarks, and here's what he had to say about Donald Trump. Donald Trump junior. Your comments. Sponsor eight doesn't. Thank rhino. All right. Be right on. Prue ride the biggest by Woodson being on the right? That's a fair bit good. I am. I am ready. When owner he. State right. To see him as a city he made him. So that's that. Motherwell heal right to have a Bush. It may have been it could avoid you. But they keep him. Retarded? Oh, crazy. Wow. Whatever district. He's from an Alabama. You must be really proud. You. Gotta be proud of this guy. Right. And there are good choice. Good choice in placing the X next. On the ballot. Nice. You try to get along with people in the left people disagree with you. I don't see me having a enjoyable thirty seconds with that guy know what a Chirc and then to use the word retarded you can't use that word anymore. But he did. And I guess he can get away with he can because he's he's a minority in. So that's fine. He's on the left and suggesting that Donald Trump junior should have been aborted. That's also find don't worry about it. Wow. Again. Congratulations to the district that he represents Alabama. Nice good decision. Good decision on that. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Also, we got this incredible story of a woman in the United Arab Emirates. She had been in a coma for twenty seven years after a horrifying car crash where she obviously almost died trying to shield her for year old son. Her four year old son is now thirty two years old. And she just woke up from her coma. Wow. Now, this is something that. Medical experts will tell you that never happened that doesn't happen if they're out for this long. They're they're never coming back. And she did in fact, wake up pretty amazing. She woke up last year after more, and we're just hearing about it now after more than a quarter century of unconsciousness to mazing that they kept her alive that long. Yeah. Because usually run into the Terry chevaux situation where somebody says, okay, just you know, starve to death. It'll be more humane thing to do and she's from the UAE. And so this didn't happen until and I don't know if there's a connection here. But then having till she was in Germany getting care when she finally came out of coma. Yeah. But I think the most fascinating thing is there's some was four years old when she protected him and she just came to. And he is thirty two years old. That's what she was. When she went into a coma. It's just gonna wake up and sees her son. The story was yeah. It's an amazing story. She can communicate with them. She does have a functioning brain. She's got cognitive function after twenty seven years in a coma. Skills to show you that these doctors scientists they don't know everything there they can be wrong, which is why people fought so hard for Terry chevaux and others triple eight nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three use it Monday. And in the meantime, have great weekend. We'll see you then.

"They. January eighteenth and they've stopped playing nice. We start here. Speaker as the floor. The president has the plane's on newspapers. I can I want my government to work, and it's not working. We're the latest shutdown tactics. Leave the rest of us. President Trump has used this line. Dozens of times there is no collusion, but his lawyer suddenly can't vouch for all the president's men and the women's March. It's a roadblock. I don't agree with many of minister Farrakhan statement about Jewish people do the organizers have an anti semitism problem or talking to them from ABC news. This is start here. I'm Brad milkey. Are you hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions than zero in on your shortlist of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started today at indeed dot com slash podcast. That's indeed dot com slash podcast. Before this year, the longest government shutdown in history was three weeks today, the government shutdown hits four weeks, and neither side is even really thinking about compromise right now. Our political director reclined said it best. I think everyone's waiting for the other side to blink before. That's a happen. Someone's eyes have to be forced open. So what would they see even as airports gained a little bit of control of growing security lines? People who deal in airport security are freaking out a homeland security source tells ABC, quote, there's no way this is going to continue as is other federal workers are just into life were paychecks. Just don't come about four days ri- with off the medication. Trying to not have a seizure kings Floyd lives in the DC area. She has muscular dystrophy and had to pick between paying for power or for the medicine. She needs to prevent her seizures. She says the lights one we'll have people that are being acted. You have people that are going without insulin and going without the care they need and as a person with a disability the threat to me is I put it in his situation because I can't take care of myself and think about the chain reaction here. Mrs Floyd has up to five personal care attendants. They're not government employees, but they're also not working their client can't pay them federal employees like Floyd likely get back pay too. But federal contractors won't. And according to NYU, professor who studies this there are one point two million of those. And I mean that reality Republicans and Democrats are trying to get each other to buckle to blink. Nancy Pelosi wrote a letter to the president postponing his state of the union address writing quote unless government reopened this week. I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date will yesterday President Trump responded, basically saying what you think you can cancel me. Okay. So you President Trump has told house speaker Nancy Pelosi that her upcoming trip to Europe and Afghantistan has been postponed because of government shutdown. He said this official congressional trip when he called an excursion could be rescheduled. And if you're wondering can the president control where congress goes, no, but he controls the military planes that take them ABC senior congressional correspondent Mary Bruce is on Capitol Hill right now. And Mary I mean Pelosi was waiting twenty four hours for response here. This seemed designed to be as inconvenient as possible. These members who were going on this trip were already physically on the bus about to head to Andrews Air Force base win. This news hit when the president's retaliatory letter dropped their bus, then literally having to turn right away. Round. And the Democrats getting off furious. All too often the last two years the president has acted like he's in the fifth grade, we heard from Democrats who called this petty small vindictive. And look when you think about the bigger picture, you're even Trump's allied the Republican Senator Lindsey Graham saying that quote, one sophomoric response does not deserve a nother. Look, this is simply not a one is opposed to negotiate on both sides. There's plenty of finger pointing to go around here for those of us who don't go on international congressional trips. Is this kind of a photo op or is this actually important government business. Well, look, the president will say that he is denying her a quote public relations event, we are learning more about what was supposed to be happening. But this is essentially a trip to visit the troops. And remember the president when and visited troops in Iraq shortly after this shutdown began a few weeks ago. So both sides have made these kinds of trips. And yes, there is obviously taxpayer money involved. These are, you know, highly choreographed trips a lot of safety concerns involved, of course, as well. L so many safety concerns that the F ghanistan part wasn't actually public knowledge. Right. Absolutely. Then you've heard some criticism of that that the president by by downsizing their trip publicly, then was risking it. But look the president was cancelling the trip. Twenty eight days in Mary. I mean, where does this put us bread? This kind of thing is exactly why so many Americans are fed up with Washington. I can I want my government to work, and it's not working. And this is also why Congress's approval rating is so low at the end of the day. Whether it's Nancy Pelosi pushing to postpone the state of the union address or the president retaliating and cancelling her trip like this. None of that. It seems is going to bring either side any closer to solving the big problem here, which is how do you re open the government get all those for load workers back to work. Get everyone paid and get this government working again. This is what I was wondering. If this actually moves anything, you're saying moves, nothing, but people's tempers, great Mary Bruce in the trenches. Thank you. Thanks, brad. A couple of nights ago Rudy Giuliani when I'm Chris Cuomo show on CNN tonight the main man Rudy Giuliani. Good to have you on prime-time. Thank you. How are you? Chris. They were talking about something Paul manafort's lawyers had accidents. Let slip that he suspected of back during the campaign of giving Trump polling data to a former Russian intelligence officer reporting about this case is despicable, sir. Mr Mayor is saying that nobody in the campaign had any contact with Russia Giuliani interrupts just misstated my position. I never said. There was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign. Dear at this moment Cuomo looks completely confused. I have not I said you president United States. So thinking about this the president's private lawyer saying I can't promise the Trump campaign wasn't working with the Russian government to sway an election. I just know the president didn't we'll spring ABC's chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl. I mean, Jonathan that sounds like a big deal is it. Yeah. It doesn't. And we please be clear about something Brad. When when Rudy Giuliani says that he he'd never he was only talking about the president. I never said there was no collusion between the campaign and the Russians. I it's wrong. It's not true, not true Rudy himself one particular point. He was asked by by guy Benson on FOX, FOX radio. Very specifically. Is it still the position of you? And your client that there was no collusion with the Russians whatsoever. On behalf of the Trump campaign. Correct flat denial, and of course, the president himself has denied this. There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself and the Russians zero I mean, the president for a time denied there was any contact between anybody on his campaign and the Russians or anyone in your campaign have any contact with Russia leading up to during the campaign. That obviously turned out to be not true. And they're no longer saying that and we've seen extensive contacts between you know, Manafort, and and not to mention many of the the underlings on the campaign. The big question, though, Brad is what does it mean is Giuliani doing this because he has some secret knowledge that the Muller reports going to show that in fact, you know, that the campaign was colluding with the Russians to rig the election, and it was just the president that somehow. No or was he being Rudy Giuliani. Does he know another shoes about to drop? I think there's a there's a healthy dose of being Rudy Giuliani on this thing. I don't think this was some game of three or four five dimensional chess. Yeah giuliani. Our statements is taking pains to say he represents the president that is his whole job to protect his client Jonathan thanks a lot. Thank you bread. And as everyone was trying to suss this out both feed last night published an explosive article about Michael Cohen, and we already know the president's longtime lawyer has pleaded guilty to lying to congress Cohen is admitted he pursued talks over Trump property in Moscow. And then try to make it seem like Donald Trump had nothing to do with it. What BuzzFeed is saying now citing unnamed law enforcement officials is that Cohen was directed by Trump to tell these lies in front of congress under oath. Now ABC news has not independently confirmed this and while the White House did not comment to BuzzFeed or sources in the past denied Trump had anything to do with Cohen's testimony. But just so everyone's clear about the stakes here telling someone a to congress. Well, most lawyers would not recommend it. We'll be right back.

These were some of the biggest demonstrations we have ever seen in this country. Not just in Washington. But in other cities, New York, Los Angeles, Iowa City, Denton, Texas. This was everywhere they held another one last year, which was smaller. But this year the women's marches faced other herbals. So here to tell us what they're wanting to do to make things right? Please welcome the co presidents of the women's March this week to organizers came on the view one of them was to make a Mallory. She was asked about this photo where she is standing next to Louis Farrakhan, his arm draped over her you posted I believe a photo together. Calling him a goat, which means the greatest of all time, but background and Louis Farrakhan, he's the head of nation of Islam where he served under Malcolm X, but he's also got this long history of homophobic, and anti semitic comments. Do you understand? Why your association with him is quite problematic? Alary says. Yeah, I attended a religious events, and you know, and just because you go into a space with someone does not mean that you agree with everything that they said let me push back a little bit. Why call him the greatest of all tied in call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric at called him the greatest of all time because of what he's done in black communities, and I think that. Let me just interject for like what that's Meghan McCain. I would never be comfortable supporting someone who called. I'm not anti Semite an anti termite. It's the wicked Jews the false dues. That are promoting lesbianism never told she will restrict up. Do you condemn Louis? Farrakhan will say to you is that I don't agree with many of minister Farrakhan statement about Jewish people as I said, I don't agree with many of minister Farrakhan's statement to condemn them. I don't agree with these statements at the end of the day. Whoa. Condemn it. No, no, no. You don't the third annual women's March is tomorrow? And what we are seeing right now is a backlash. So I want to bring in two of the organizers of the women's March, Linda Sarsour is a national board member. Rachel Carmona is the chief operating officer. Thanks for being with us. Ladies thank you for having us. So let's dive right in. I mean, we've seen several groups cut ties with you recently, the DNC and the NDA CPI are no longer associated with you. Amnesty International the human rights campaign. The gay rights group. So what do you say to women, particularly gay and Jewish women? But all women that they are welcome at this March. Thank you Brad for asking that. I'm just one correction NWC continues to be a strong partner of the women's March. They are actually speaking at the rally on Saturday. This is an a movement that is intersectional. We are trying to bring together women from across the country different religious backgrounds different political ideologies, and it's hard to do, and it's a messy movement. And that is why it has never been done before. So we understand that they will be schisms. There's going to be hard conversations that need to be had. But our controversy is not more controversial than an administration that cages children and administration who has the government shutdown where workers have not gotten paid in four weeks. So we will work through this as women's movement because we are focused on what the real threat to this country. Isn't it is this administration and white supremacy? So we're looking forward to a lobby day, we are unveiling an intersectional, bold policy platform that you will see it. It is going to be a historic document that was created and led by women and on Saturday we will March, and we will March in the streets of Washington, DC, rain or shine or snow the women's movement is here can the movement. Categorically condemn with Louis Farrakhan said in the past about these groups we have done that many times. I will welcome people to go to our website. I women's March dot com. We have multiple statements where we have unequivocally rejected anti-semitism, homophobia, Islamophobia transphobia. And that is the movement that we are a Marta. Alary did not. So will she be at the March tomorrow is she still an organizer of this event? In fact, has I welcome you to watch a breakfast club interview that she did this week where she unequivocally rejected anti-semitism, and I'm the view she was put in a very hard position by Meghan McCain, and we were not in that position. And I believe into me commodities leadership. And that she is a woman that stands up for all people. So she recently has a made those comments on the breakfast club. And I welcome everyone who has any questions to go watch that interview the breakfast club morning radio show. She told them she denounces those comments. But then she said he doesn't agree with everything I'm doing which sounds like these are civil disagreements when you look forward this weekend, though, smaller venues, smaller crowds expected is the controversy hurting the movement, or is this a changing movement all movements are always changing and evolving and things like that. And so when we're talking about what the marches look like we've got over two hundred eighty marches all. Across the country. And while our groups are marching they are doing that. But they are also lobbying. They're also working with elected officials are also doing ongoing work in their communities. And so when you look back at the first March, the first March was kind of the historic you know, that was that was where it began. But our movement now has breadth and depth. And so the way that the activism looks is very diverse. Just like the folks we're going to be marching with us. And so I think it's a reductive to say that it's just marches, and and when we're doing this work and moving forward, it's going to be tactics that are rising to meet the rising threat of, you know, the rollbacks on women's rights all across the country. Quickly. Brad, we marched in two thousand seventeen and the largest single day demonstration in American history. We made a declaration that we will win back the house in two thousand eighteen and that is what we did. We put over a hundred and ten women many of whom progressives and women of color and women have proved across the country, particularly women of color and black women that we know who our leaders should be when when they should be there. And we're gonna make sure that happens in two thousand twenty. Was going to say the question in two thousand seventeen was we'll all this emotion actually, bring action. I guess you would say the twenty eighteen results speak for themselves. Absolutely, Linda, Sarsour. Rachel carmona. Thank you for coming on with us. Thank you. Thank you. Brad. Brad. Last year. Twenty Texas was transformed in the span of a few months. Tencent gone up playgrounds were built and a soccer field was cleared as it became home to the largest center of unaccompanied migrant children in the country three thousand kids without their parents recently, those kids have been either reunited with their families or moved to other facilities. The tornado facility is no more. It's back to being what it was a quiet border town, but over the border in Mexico, you still got massive tent cities that are springing up overseen by their government as migrants continue to arrive asking to be led into the US. We've got an incredible project right now a team of producers is making their way along the border documenting life their ABC's. Josh Hoyos is joining us now where are you right now, Josh hayride, some currently in Tijuana, Mexico, where the city has essentially become a hodgepodge of little migrant camps where hundreds upon hundreds of migrants are waiting their turn online to knock on the door of the United States and. Make their case for asylum. So what's it like there? So mean, a couple of producers Jake left from Maine in an Laurent went in toward about a. It's sort of an incredible sight to see this was an abandoned music venue, which is turned into a camp city where there are large white tents where you normally could picture outdoor parties are now becoming these large umbrellas for smaller. Pop up camping tons. There placed on top of wooden pallets. And that's where people are living in each one has a number outside of it that sort of grades out the area of where you can find someone's tent so official needs to find a certain family. They'll look for sees Eero seven and go to seize zero seven on the tent and can knock on the door and talk to someone. But in the center of the entire camp. There is a really interesting whiteboard. And that whiteboard has the number of which asylum cases being heard at the sandy syndrome port of entry. And when we left do is at one thousand seven hundred and six, and so if you had one thousand seven hundred and ten you had to wait another day before having your asylum case heard, and this is where people are are checking day in day out which numbers on that board. So they know if they can actually plead their case to come into the US. We take my weeks. How long did they end up waiting for? I mean, one family that we spoke to a grandmother she had a six week journey from Honduras to Tijuana she's been there since before Christmas. And she to be honest, doesn't even remember what they she arrived there because you lose any sense of time and space and date. And so she's been there since before Christmas, and she spent Christmas and New Year's there. And it's now the middle of January she may have to wait another couple of weeks until our cases. So you could be in the shelters for months was interesting. You know, I think one of the conversations a lot of people on this side of the border have is she's doing it the quote, unquote, right way. She wanted to apply for asylum. So she went to the back of whatever line there was there. She's waiting. How does she feel when other people in this caravan decide I gotta go. I'm hopping across the fence, or whatever she definitely feels. She says that she's doing the right thing, but she's going through the proper channels. She's asking for asylum the right way. But she definitely looks around the camp and sees people leaving and understands that people grow desperate and people try to scrounge up whatever money they can and go and join a Coyote to take them across the border a lot of these migrants saying they can't just wait at their house in their home country. That's not in the cards for them. But this bottleneck of asylum application says really transform these Mexican areas to Josh in Tijuana. Thank you. Thanks, bradley. And one last thing. Well, leadership was going back and forth with the White House yesterday. Other Democrats were crammed into a little room. It was jam packed at his ABC's devonte wire there in the basement he said for lots of gray-haired haired, lawmakers learning Twitter strategy what you learn that you didn't know before about Twitter. That is a great tool to use for that before on new though, as a Twitter bootcamp Brad, the guest lecturer was one of their own twenty nine year old Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. So what what you telling them one of her bullet points was social media isn't a press conference, and it's not a press release. Yes. There were bullet points. And yes, these tips were pretty basic. She said, look if you don't know what I mean is don't tweet him. Devon says a lot of them just want to make sure they understand how Twitter works. I mean. Anthony Weiner got tweets confused with DM's Cossio Cortez. Also told Democrats don't be afraid to pick a fight. She would know she's an toria sleep quick draw. What was your top ten? Tip. I think is to be yourself and to really write your own tweets. So people know that it's new talking one of her lessons was if your mom tweet about your kids. If you're an old dude tweet like an old, dude. It's why cantankerous Chuck Grassley is one of the best tweezers in the Senate. But that advice also served as a subtle dig against her fellow progressive, Elizabeth Warren hold on a sec. I'm gonna get me up.

I'm human I get people like try to rob me every day with a straight face and they don't care about the culture that we care about themselves. US Is the twenty minute morning show for Monday. December thirty Damon Dash and Alpha male. That I love the need for the rise of the Black Alpha male in America Erica. Are you tired of looking at black men who you want to speak strong in situations where it calls for straight truth breath and then they ended up disappointing you because of their high degree of cowardice. That's why I love the Brash. Bravado revival of my brother Damon Dash. He never disappoints me every time that he speaks. I WANNA personally be surrounded by the Black Alpha male. I love to be in the company of the Black Alpha male men who know what they want men who love up to challenging his enemies and his detractors men who are not afraid to beat themselves in any given situation this is what the black community needs black men who are not looking for a pat on the back from white people and now looking for a pat on the head from white people or looking to have a seat at the table. They're white people made they make their own damn table. All these so-called mobile's you're talking about you name one of them and they own doan boss only the boss if you put up your own mind if you don't put up if you own money I don't care how much somebody gives you nothing by the supervisor. It's not choice so how much money we can you get paid to not. There's no money in this world for someone to pay me so they call me. Call them a boss like calling somebody Daddy. They don't give a damn about what you think about them at all men that stand alone know how to make decision and they stand on that decision man who speak truth to power without stammering and stumbling scratching scratching fumbling and dead getting tongue tied and twisted this brother speaks bowling. He's speeds boldly boldly on what is glaringly obvious without fear in the midst of cowards. The Black Alpha male is a man. I'm in you can look up to if he's a righteous alpha male. He's someone you can bet your life on. Now there's gotTa be a difference between you know the Good Alpha male and the bad alpha male. You know there's a difference because some good Alpha male some use people some abuse people. Oh some use you to get what they want and they'll make you think that they're on On your side. They're fighting your agenda but it's really selfish. We know a lot of people like that. We will call no names but when I say we need the rise of the Black Alpha male in America. Let me give you a few examples. These are some examples. I WanNa give you and I wanNA start off with some names of some men that many are free to speak about in public. Afraid to say these men's names. Elijah Muhammad Come on now. You say people don't say Elijah Muhammed Dame in public people don't talk about. The honorable allege Muhammad during black history month. When they ask you who your black leaders are they say Malcolm X. It's easy to say Malcolm XS XS name today but you won't say the honorable to Latch Muhammed and a group of black people or in a room full of white folks unless your blog Alpha male? How about this when this just this name? Terrifies people. Louis Farrakhan say Louis Farrakhan in the midst of a bunch of black folks and see how nervous they get they start scratching an inch in and fumbling and is hot balls. Start to get big. They start scratching started itching and being all nervous jittery theory. You can't say those men men's name they are. These are men who put fear and the hearts of other men there is a distinction an Alpha male and the blackout. So it's comfortable for you to say Malcolm Mix six you say Martin Luther King Junior who's Alpha male. Mohammed Ali stokely Carmichael by the College Mohammed. Show enough Alpha male nat turner show show enough Alpha Male Huey P Newton Bobby Seale eldridge cleaver and all the back path of brothers and sisters and other organizations. And I didn't name all of this is just a few of the names and if I didn't name your hero don't don't be offended if I didn't say your hero but getting back to my brother. Damon Dash and by no means am I putting him on the level with any of these men. These men I mentioned earlier. These minute giants Ryan Damon Dash is not in the category of the forementioned. But today and our common black society where have all uh-huh at the blackout for meals gone. That's the question. And when I look at Damon Dash in a modern context he never disappoints me. He never disappoints appoints me when he speaks in public. Can you give it to your son. How you what's the most would have absolutely positively how because I own shares of this company Boorda? Yes but what I'm saying is can you send e. Is this yours to give the whole company but listen this question question if your son needs a job here can you give it to him. No no if your son needs to get some money out the bank from here some cash flow can get it all right. You don't own it but I you think it's not yours. I'm not gonNA fight for something. I don't own men don't do that. I don't fight for fight for me. How we stop not producing the Black Alpha male many of you may have a problem with the term Alpha male? I'm using it if you look in the society. Sidoti of the wolf hierarchy the Alpha male is the one the dominant male right. So you got the Alpha male the debate of male and Alpha males to run one that leads to pack to success. So are we living in a time. Now that the black men are being made into sissy fide men. Assissi is soft feminine acting man who does not resemble resemble reflect the attitudes of a real man who is protective of his women and children now. They're mended act feminine. But they're not not gay but I'm talking about a sissy on talking about assist. I called black men who afraid to stand up for the people sify justified because you are not a maintain a of your women and your children you are not somebody that they can stand behind. You actually a nuisance in the the black community that we got to get rid of gotTa deal with the Sissy in the black community getting up and then acolyte talking for the black black community. A black lives matter who said that the enemy get in trouble on this one but I don't give the dam because this needs to be said and if I don't say it I don't know who will see the enemy has vowed to use the gay agenda as a way of neutralizing us the black man brothers and sisters. Can't you see it's all around us. Have you been to Atlanta the lately even in your own community we are surrounded by the soft feminine. Acting man has replace the Alpha Male. And who were the Alpha males in our community we talk about our grandfathers great grandfathers. If they were alive today most but then wouldn't even speak to us. It wouldn't even speak their own grandchildren. They wouldn't waste their breath talking to cowards. They they were just looking at us and shake their head many of our grandfathers. No there was crazy Dan. Many of US probably shoot us out right for exhibiting such cowardly behavior. They say go ahead and shoot 'em they know they know damn good. Shoot them killer. They would disavow us they. They would disown us for allowing our families to go down on all fours begging for a piece of bread they would this own us us they would this avow US black men for the way we treat our women and leave them all by themselves in this wicked world and we stand by watch our children be destroyed and now our children are the enemy of the black community with guns is in their hands because we didn't raise them right. They would look at us with disdain and say look these Damn Woodley Niggers niggers are puncher scared to death niggers living are women and children to the wolves. And I'm talk talk about that. No good cracker. There wants to destroy our families. Yes it do. We realize how weak we look to our women and children are. Women are now looking at white men as a better mate for her than us. Some of the most ridiculous this marriages. That I've seen like Serena Williams with that little friel white dude she would. She buys more refuge and comfort in a Oh scrawny white man. But he's a millionaire guy money he can provide take care of us. He can't do them with Serena Williams too much black woman for him but she has rejected us and many of our women have rejected us because we just weakest Hale and does she picked somebody is weaker than us but he can provide for her. He can protect her because he's a white male in a white dominated society so so she she. She finds her comfort. She finds her. She wants to be wrapped up in his bosom because she thinks he's the only one that can provide for her and her children. That's how weak we've become so when I talk about Dame Dash. I'm talking about a spirit. I'm not talking about my dame dash the individual. I'm talking about a spirit I'm talking about attitude of conquering of dominance. I'm talking about an attitude to the black man. Must have if he wants to save his family and resurrect his community. That's what I'm talking about with Damon Dash and if you you agree with me leave me a message and the comments section. I would like to know what you think about it. Because I'm telling you if we don't adopt the attitude two of a brother like a Damon Dash we won't be in a hell of a lot of trouble salute to my big brother Damned Dash. I hope you hear this podcast Kazman I love you.

Bill O’Reilly’s No Spin News and Analysis

00:00 sec | 4 months ago

No Spin News, June 17, 2020

"Hey welcome to the no spin news. I'm Bill O'Reilly and it is Wednesday June seventeenth, two thousand twenty fight for your freedom and I hope that's why you're here to get the best information. We can give you information. You will not see on other television news broadcasts. I can guarantee that good guests vibrant debate. We all have it. So I'm I'm confused, and maybe you guys can help me out in male if you want to reach me by its bill and bill, o'riley dot com bill bill rally. So I reported yesterday. The Jennifer Aniston you remember her actress is being friends and Brad Pitt wanting. Academy Award deservedly for the Hollywood movie by Tarantino. So these to give a million dollars, each donate a million dollars each to an anti police organization. Called Color of change. Why would they do that? Why. I mean I'm assuming they don't hate. Police these two. I mean certainly they need security. A they're very well known throughout the world. And when you're very well known, you have kooks coming after you all the time. Why would they do that? So and they all have paid advisers. You have to understand. Stars in Hollywood, they pay people, managers, and pr all of that a lot of money to advise them. Why would you give a million dollars to an anti police organization? Under the banner of being. Politically correct or virtue signaling whatever they think they're doing. So to me. and. I wrote this on a column that I hope you've read or will read. The education is the key to all of the rifle racial strife in this country. All right all the economics all the unfairness. If you are educated, you can come this disappear. But you can compete, and you can come back. So why would you give a million dollars to brother's keeper? Founded by. Barack Obama. Maybe he was the exact founder, but he brother's keeper is a mentoring organization. Fabulous, how about how about best friends Elaine Beneton WASHINGTON DC I've been with them. More than a decade best friends, a fantastic against a mentoring organization takes poor inner city. Kids attached to successful people. They stay together, and there is how big brothers and big sisters I wrote a check yesterday to them, and that's county here in New York. All right. I used to be a big brother a three. I had one girl and two boys and I stay within their whole life. Why why wouldn't you give a million dollars to those organizations and there are many many more like them. Rather than an Anti Police Organization So I'm just asking this because. It is my opinion that there is no rational thinking. Taking place now in this country role emotional. I. Don't think the Jennifer Aniston and Brad head I haven't met either never smoked I. Think they're bad people. Maybe I'm wrong. They could be, but I don't think so. But misguided off the chart misguided. In Salt American police officers giving a million dollars to people who hate them. Right Jen Brad. All right. Now Social Justice. That's the mantra of Americans a bad country. We persecute blacks. We need social justice. What is evolving into is social disorder doesn't Seattle the story out there. Today the mayor said. Unless, he's dying Senate cops into the occupied zone. I kinda mayor is this. Why would you elect somebody like this? You don't think there's people in there that are scared. They can't move around the way they want to. Come on. In Atlanta? Eight police officers have already resigned after the shooting there over the weekend south Florida ten officers already resigned and. Hundreds more okay in both places Buffalo fifty-seven officers in Buffalo got. Why would you say? Why would you stay New York City? Is GonNA lose? Excuse got about forty thousand and why PD? They'RE GONNA lose. Ten thousand. In the next couple years? Why would you stay? You know if you make one mistake and you're a police officer. You're done. You're cooked. The Union will stick up for you, but. Your superiors won't. Charge you. Like the guy in Atlanta. Now the guys in Minneapolis they should be charged the guy in Atlanta I'm not sure. I just don't know. You are listening to a free expert from Bill O'Reilly Dot Com. No Spin News broadcasts where you can actually see me. We'll be right back after this message. Right now. Louis Farrakhan you know. You don't get more militant than him. You don't get more antisemitic, anti white, just all right. He's at the top of the chart. So, apparently. Lot of celebrities don't really understand. WHO HE HITS! And in nine hundred ninety. Farrakhan went on. The Phil Donahue show and said this. Black, people who were brought to this country. was stripped of their names. Language culture religion gone. And taken totally away from the history. Of Themselves, you've painted Jesus White God right the angels right, and then all these black people have been subjected to a form of white. Supreme Assi which produces in the reverse, a black inferiority. Why fear violence from us? We do not have a history of killing white people. White people have a history of killing us. After four hundred years of living and experiencing win, not prejudice. We are looking at the reality of what we have suffered and continue to. All right so after that clip resurfaced recently. Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston Jennifer. Again, Jennifer Garner Michelle pfeiffer Jamila Djamil Oh Sean Hayes. Lisa Renna BUSTA rhymes ice cube. All retweeted or praise Louis Farrakhan Minister Farrakhan. Now in the donahue cliff. He sounds Kinda rational. Let's take another clip go. Jews. Enemy. The Jews were responsible for all of this. And degenerate behaviour in Hollywood is. Turning into women and women. And Satan is going down. Farrakhan by God's grace has pulled cover. Betsy Tannock June. And I'm here saying. Your time is. Your world is. I'M GONNA. Tell you that those Hollywood people re tweeted that don't know anything they don't know Louis. Farrakhan is or what he stands for what he's done in the past. But these people have influence. Roller spot will be right back. Let's get to the mail. We got Anthony CONCIERGE member. Thank you Anthony. I've never met a single person who agrees with what the Minneapolis officer did to Mr Floyd. Country is an agreement one hundred percent. Why are we protesting and rioting? We aren't. Some very militant people are. And some criminals piggybacked on that. This is not a mass protests. All right media makes it seems like it, but. The numbers are relatively small. That, being said. People should protest about Mr Floyd. That was can never happen again. Elizabeth Hollick Wayne New Jersey as anyone at beatings, interviews, or any communication with the leaders of the black lives, movement. Black lives matter movement. They saw what happened to the block. Passers because the same old. They don't WanNa be famous. They don't want you to know they are. Not Getting that. Joe, hazlet Oh cursed new. Jersey. Bill of. We can't count on our leads to protect us from unjustified political insurrection. It's obviously occurring. Then what can we do? I feel threatened by black lives. Matter in Antifa, because law enforcement is not doing its job. What can you do? You can be nice to your local police. I am. Not What you can do? That's about all, and you can vote out the people who are enabling the radicals. Both them out.

7/16: Twitter Got The Ever Living Shit Hacked Out Of It

"Would it is? Joe Man Randy savage in this factor in the risk. No one does it better now. Nobody does it better. Myself go ahead told me something right down. Won't do another episode of Art. Factor presented by the Barstool News. Network, it is Thursday, July Fifteenth Twenty Twenty almost made the end of another week more day. Boys I've got some opening thoughts from yesterday's show southerly stuck with me through the night. What if? Q is Yan dex. Fuck! You Really WanNa. Get Yeah Right now while I'm just saying. You want to just open that Pandora's box brothers. Thought I had a hard time getting that out of my head. Rather not would. Is Your saying? Yang X.'s become sentient. Is Q. Q. is well cute is run by Q.. WHOEVER IS BEHIND INDEX? Irish thought it was run by Mr Yan dex, but I I mean I. I guess if that's the case, it's only like one group of evil entities instead of two crazy groups. I guess I don't know I'm just saying. It's just explore the possibility in your mind. Also get the lockdown tea or the heart logo de both very slick designs, both in the Barstool store your charity, you can support the voice all at the same time on the Barstool store also we'll have presidential candidate and more China US news. There's a Lotta that shit going on, but there's other vigor stuff this week like beans and Florida men that we have to get to first so that's what we're going to do. And then and also the twitter blackouts mark has gone. Yeah, that's what we're starting with. Because as of twenty, twenty couldn't get any worse on Wednesday. The blue check marks of twitter, the scientifically proven most sensitive people on Earth. We're not able to tweet. Oh my goodness because of a massive hack. Did you guys hear about this course? You're right, talked yeah, I guess it started around four PM. On Wednesday when musk the future emperor of Mars tweeted out something along the lines of like I'm giving back to the community. All bitcoin sent to the address below will be sent back doubled if you send two thousand dollars also two thousand back and then. Yeah then there's like a fucked up your to click on the word enjoy. A. Damn guys this when I bought I waited all night at target. PF T to get playstation, three's back in college, and then Bam they released a whole new ship playstation. Three's marketplace's through is relatively worthless, and some dude hit me up and he's like I'll pay three thousand dollars for your playstation three. Just send me a check back for a thousand, and you keep the rest for your troubles. This is classic one. Oh One! We've heard this story a few times, and it's it's almost identical. The sophistication behind the two are very similar. So. Yeah, I mean. This was from his official account. It wasn't like Deanna was to all of his. All his followers can see this then shortly after that Moore big names on twitter started posting out pretty much the exact same message some variation of if you send your Bitcoin to this address here, I charitably will send back a double. The amounts and we're talking Bill Gates Barack Obama Joe Biden Apple Uber. Jeff Bezos Kim, Kardashian, Kanye West and Michael Bloomberg to name a few ARGH. On Bloomberg Ed. Cohen Bloomberg gets in the news. Yeah, lots of Democrats in there. You might notice, and you would think maybe this. Bill Gates trying to get all his buddies to give back since he started the coronavirus. Come on perpetuate. Shut But it turns out. All of those people weren't offering everyone w bitcoins. Their twitter counter just hacked by Bitcoin scammers. All of them simultaneously at the same time, which is so embarrassing for twitter I mean twitter looks like Swiss cheese when when it comes to their security here I. Mean you've got? The top twitter people. Some of the top twitter people to theoretically if you're on twitter, you might have thought. Oh, there's like a cool movement from all these leaders doing this doubling situation. No, if you thought that then you need to take a security class. Well Bill People. That thought that. Where do you think they would go next? To their coin base account to get to send their Bitcoin, right. Who did that then now they're information is with whoever hat twitter, right? Maybe if there are a little suspicious, maybe they would go like the bitcoins official twitter account, but guess what there was two prongs to this attack, because at Bitcoin, ripple coin, Guscott coin base, and not finances official twitter accounts, those are the main crypto accounts also had been hacked, and they had a different message up. That said we have partnered with Crypto for health, and we were given the giving back five thousand. Community. So, they had like this setup to in case you wanted to check with. Bitcoin bitcoins like verifying that. There's some promotional thing going on. Yeah, so basically. Twitter started to catch on midday Wednesday like four or five PM and started sending out messaging like We're looking into the security issue. And then they shut down every blue checkmark verified account they 'cause. That's. What happens, there is that's when you realize you've you've. Gotten so played that you can't do anything but pull the plug. They pull the plug. That's the. Equivalent of letting the sprinkler system. Go in the office like you see your fire. and. I wish I just put that fire out, and things have gotten too bad through you, said Hey. pull the fire alarm. They let the sprinkler sprinklers fly pat and so yeah I mean anyone with the blue checkmark couldn't change their password and they couldn't tweet all of us. Unverified schmos were actually having a field day making fun of these. snobby. Multi many followed. People was awesome time. It felt so free on there for for a couple of hours there those people are knowing your blue checks. All came back and started asserting their all of them go. Hi, hi, hi, There's like eighty five thousand highs, fucking dictators for a second there. They weren't hogging up all the likes and the re tweets. They're like a cat. Cat was away for a little bit man. I was. How do we ever survive honestly without the blue check? Brigade leading us are thought leaders. I mean it really. It's striking to me. It's says a lot about human capacity to be able to survive without those blue checks. Incense insensitivity was high for about five hours on twitter. Now, the question is how the fuck did. The hackers who may have only made one hundred grand, a hundred grand reportedly hackel Lusa great like what's through this whole thing. How did they hack all those huge accounts? Last year Jack Dorsey the CEO Twitter Jack was hacked himself, but twitter claims they fixed that bug and closed the way in that whoever had Jack Right. Right, they. Close. Another there's another door, maybe by the way this might be a good excuse for people to start using for any past present or future, unfunny or like insensitive tweets. It wasn't me. Chad dance class. Yeah, this is a classic example that. When the shaggy can come into play? Even like it was my friends that hacked mean just deny. Also Joe Biden's account. Getting hacked is like the least surprising to me, but you have to assume Ilan Mosque Jeff. Bezos, Bill Gates and Apple had unique strong passwords and stuff, so it's most likely this is one hundred percent on twitter side, and those hackers can get anyone the fuck. They want until this issues fixed. Yeah, yeah, they didn't get all. These people's passwords stay home. Plea fleecing of twitter security team. So was it an inside job maybe? I, if it wasn't an inside job, it's way more embarrassing for twitter. I would agree with that because if it wasn't inside job. There's a there's a relevant excuse all right. It's like an employee that has a vendetta against the code twitter. Look like Shit. An outside job twitter is a joke, and they can't defend. Themselves would agree if there was someone that was had the keys to the kingdom, and was pissed off or bribed. Excusable than if. If the only chance is an inside job. If the person that did it is inside China or Russia, because if you're inside America and you participated in this your debt, it's not even worth we're just fired by two now if You're not gonNA killed for treason pad. You're not gonNA kill you going to fucking jail whoever? Did it. They might have been offered like you know tablet. They might just be like we're not going. Tell you why. You WanNa know why I'll tell you straight up a foreigner. Because big mistake they made reportedly they got like a hundred grand in Bitcoin. Right something like that hundred and fifty, not worth the risk right, but they could have gotten a lot more if they specified a fucking movement. Elon Musk saying hey, I want to give back to the community, not specifying which community is not going to get grubby bitcoin and if Like one of those misspelled emails. Yeah, saying I'm saying if they were actually American I'm going to give back to the slack commuter talk. About that look it was. It was bad now the FBI is getting involved of course, and also the hackers did some funny stuff like the changed Ilan, and all all the peoples like email addresses and stuff so before the blue checkmark. Scott shut down. If they shut down, try to like a change their password or would just got to loop to the hackers. had. I mean another good defense for white is an inside job that they did have all this alterior shit setup as well so. Wear nate an effort. What do you mean alterior? Shit them changing the passwords. That's just so they don't lose. No them changing. them changing the home screens on all the bitcoin pages and stuff passing the inside job in my mind would be not be getting the hook in. Getting in not not like it was all coordinated by a group of twitter people that someone on the inside open like. Jurassic Park that kind of thing. Right exactly maybe government paid right now newman. From Jurassic Park type thing i. Didn't say the magic word, and he let he let them in. The admin, otherwise giving whatever you're, not twitter sucks. More in Portland sucks because you had. What's the total follower count of people that tweeted this thing? Let's get millions more importantly. Twitter guy got. Let's get. Let's get to that PAT because there's some interesting theories on that first. Let's take into the Internet. I verbal meme from the famous hacking group anonymous. It's anonymous posting. FAMOUS SPONGEBOB ME more. Squidward is staring through the window while Spongebob and Patrick. And squidward blue checkmark. He can't tweet an anonymous on bad boys, yeah! Getting the shit out of the blue. Pretty rural to the blind. The cyclops is king, and we were the cyclops yesterday boys. That's right, G seven. Now, we'll take to. Jason who says at two to JAS. That Wallet has received over Twelve Bitcoin so so far today, just shy of one hundred, nineteen, thousand, suggesting well over one hundred people fell for it I would hope so was like like Pat said it went out to five hundred million people. The miscreants withdrawn sixty K. leaving less than half to be claimed later. This guy saying they only made sixty K. and then papillon nineteen says it's over eight million USD they have collected now and growing, so he's gotten alterior theory their path that maybe they're downplaying how. Will, no, because you can see, you can look at the Bitcoin ledger and see exactly how much the account elected. You you can't see who owns a ledger necessarily, but we'll be able to tell. Come Out, okay. It was a bunch of different. Bitcoin wallets think they got wise. It wasn't going to like one while at. They're spreading it around, and then lastly at with her beads says I can smell Russia in this. She's. She's. She's got. She's with that. Let's move on from that one to another somewhat conspiracy. It's not a conspiracy at all is that we covered a couple of days ago and it's about the Goya Bean Company. Remember the CEO complimented trump. From Goya beans, and then that caused a Goya. Boycott by the Progressives and It was like the my pillow stuff. Basing this shit, Bro A. Cot Like I can't so many times. There's just perfect word play in front of. The thing that changed at all. The GOYA boycott by the Progress I'm GONNA call the Blue Team in this because this is blue red stuff. And then that turned into a bean consumption competition for the conservatives with a red team. And then it somehow when we talked about two days ago, K., W. Miller Republican nominee was already downing to beans two cans of Goya today breakfasts too many now, too. Many beans for breakfast somehow got an even crazier than that in the last couple of days. Because you see the trump's the originators of embracing controversy. We're never going to let an opportunity like this slip to their hands so Tuesday night Ivanka posted a picture to twitter. This was before the checks got deleted for a couple of hours. Holding a can of Goya beans with a bilingual caption, saying Goya is good, and so that was Tuesday night that pissed off the blue team something fierce, who began to mean the can of beans into giant Dick's bottles of hydroxy chloroquine. Whatever else I love, hydroxy was shot as. Dick's were funny. Situation his own dog otherwise wouldn't be in. His is one of the best uses of what do you think of that? What do you think a giant Lib that hates trump does if they love goya beans in the scenario. Had Explosion, ANTIFA president situation. They can't looking around in the grocery store and they're gonNA. Boy Help. No one looks to me. It's like no one knows that you're a giant Libya weird. They were probably just hoping it was resolved before Tuesday. WAS TACO Tuesday. Man. Yeah, it's GonNa Change Taco Tuesday forever so basically what we've got going on is a live action me more across the entire Internet sponsored by the government. You gotTa Vodka Setting it off. You got people other side I mean I guess the goal Kat was. Off set it off and finally. The KHUDA grab the troll in chief himself trump. He did a little Goya double thumbs up spread out inside the Oval Office on his desk, which then after he did that had CNN speculating if they could get Ivanka for ethics, violations under this. Policy Executive Branch, employees may not use their government positions to suggest that the agency or any part of the executive branch endorses an organization including a nonprofit organization product service person, says the statute that somebody would have to file a complaint on inside the White House, and then Donald Trump would have to fire his own daughter to enforce it, so that was the speculatory article on CNN about what could be done about this situation. And Goya. Bean sales meanwhile are grew up. Yeah, because I see this goes back to my theory I think that. The majority of liberal people will still buy goyal beans. And with all this pressure to buy it more people are buying it. Yeah. Yeah. It's in this huge win for Goya lots of novelty. Thank God. We all have masks on because as Christ. This is the kind of scenario that this happened in September. being a can of beans. It'd be like the number one halloween costume in October an and that's that's a great point true. How much time do you put into your being selection? When it comes to beans for mine I'm just a little just grabbing the nearest beans to me, and I'm getting out of the be Nile absolutely so I. Don't think this is obviously good for well. How's the numbers game Christian name recognition. It's GonNa. Hurt, but I mean like we got rid of the cows folks by thirty three percent, but now we're all gonna beans like this. I. I'd moved for going to put some lemongrass. Can and Some people are going so far as to start. Go Fund me. To by Goya. For for the cause. For. The causing stock foodbanks with it is just an all out. Assault for ranked GOPHERS by stock. There would be a better use. Oh probably too late on that. But it's GonNa. Way Kat I. Mean who knows you know how the Stock Market Works? It's difficult, Damn right I got an expert. But my question is now with Goya. Sales through the roof is the blue crew that called for the Goi Kat in the first place AOC. Gastro Lin Manuel and Chrissy Teigen. Are they going to be able to mount a comeback in the Goya war is they're going to be any. Is there any meam powerful enough to stop the sales of Goya? Beano Goya's straight to the top goal. Is that the number one being? Brand Yeah. It seems that way, but he's doing what she can. She tweeted Ivanka's original. Picture. Saying is good, and she says if trump original caption firm who cares more, it has to be good. Trump like sucked. Trump's St has to court cares for has to be. The guy doesn't make the beans. Their God doesn't matter. If you like beans, matter if the the guy who does go trump or not, who cares? Beans near politics because mark the democratic. Congresswoman from New York feels like there should be a boycott. foles ways people. The the right boycotts shit out of a lot of shit. What exactly did he say to? He praised trump. What did he say? We remember I can look He said. We're lucky to have a leader like trump. Let's! Let's stop eating as beans. The. Wrong reason like a like. If I disagreed with him I'd like dumb. Dumb dumb guy making my beans. I don't WanNa. SMIRKING my beans I want a guy that can do one thing why politics of a man who makes your beans matter one fucking iota. You're crazy. Yeah, you don't have a choice you crave, means you don't enjoy anything like the taste of beings which you previously enjoyed you enjoy the smell your farts if You go to. Like To get worked up about stuff like beans. Yeah, a beat. We're having a war. I'm just upset with America. This! This is a war over whether a bean company is good because they're fucking. CEO Has Chazan opinion about the president. We are all idiots. Giving a fuck about this. In the mirror. If you used to buy beans now, you don't right. If you care so much about this shit, you gotta chill. Factor the largest Hispanic owned food company in the United States.

They will be ending their decades. Long relationship with multi hyphen entertainer nick cannon after some comments he made on a recent episode of his podcast and Youtube show cannons class Yeah. It goes just like every other rich celebrity trying to muscle into podcasting turf cannons, classes, sticky concept where guests come to learn and when they get in the chair, Hashtag classes in session Yeah, it's terrible, but guys the particular podcasts. Do you get it. It's A. Pretty clever by the way watch out for multi hyphen it being a trend word people get. That's going to be real trend BUZZWORD. People are gonNA. Fuck does that mean multi is like when people like. A writer slacks. No no I'm sorry I asked I heard it on. Slash. Kordell Stewart multi-centre entertainers. Multi-ethnic. Particular. Passed in question was with guest professor, Griff from the public enemy, hip hop group, the political group from ladies in the nineties and If you remember. Griff was kicked out of public enemy in one thousand nine after giving an interview to the Washington Times where he said quote. The Jews are wicked and we can prove this. And that the Jews were responsible for the majority of wickedness that goes across the globe. source of all evil right. So. Anyway guys, it seems that Professor Griff was up to his old tricks, and though they spent twenty minutes talking about how and why? Griff was fired from his band, Nick Cannon still somehow managed to walk directly into the bear trap. He'd just hung mind. The bear trap signed next to Because there's so many like influential leaders in community, right the that hold those beliefs Farrakhan right well kind certainly Farrakhan. Yes, well, no, but that's not. That's we'll get into it. That's why the beliefs persist to the. Ferric, but the point is how fucking hilarious that you have a guy that got fired from his job loss, fame and fortune because of comments he made in a particular light. And then you have on your show to discuss that, and then you go make the same mistake well. He's on your show. Agrees with what did they don't say exactly will he brought up the aluminum body conspiracy theory about the thirteen families, and then you referenced the Rothschilds as the leaders of the world and the Fed, which is Dogwood Whistle for anti-semitism. Even kept praising the teachers of Louis Farrakhan. whose what's up. The Fed is in the Federal Reserve eight families of the Fed like run the Fed that run the essentially the economy. This is a conspiracy so rejecting the Fed is a dog whistle friend, no rat saga. Rothschild's run things is a dog ramp antisemitism. He kept praising the teachings of Louis Farrakhan who has been labelled as antisemitic and anti gay by the Southern Poverty Law Center. And then he said when we are the same people who they want to be. That's our birthright. We are the true Hebrews referring to juicing. We're the true Hebrews. They took it from us. And, there's some other shit out there. Yeah. Everybody say that technically right because. I mean biblical history, and all goes back to like a couple of people that started other religions. Could say that maybe. They, D- what I'm saying is if the CIA whatever hey, let's not get into. Let's not I'm pulling nick cannon here. This shitty said too. But what does this mean most poorly means that nick had fired for the anti-semitism stuff other stuff. He said it was pretty clear in the in the in the verbiage from Viacom that they didn't care about the other stuff. You said they fired him for the anti, Semitism. Just went over. Everything was antisemitic. No, yes, exactly. Yeah, but I'm saying the stuff that you're not going over had nothing to do with firing exactly. Why would I do that story about and fired for anti-semitism? Clear for the listeners, thank you so much. Yet. It's for the people that have more information that you're not giving them their pilot. Why aren't you talking about the other stuff? Well okay I appreciate the assist there on story. Nick Ken. What does this mean as? You do. Well. I very much. I needed it I really appreciate it. Kennedy's fired from. The hip hop comedy Improv show while an out. That he created, and MTV will not be airing. Any wall now shows that feature Nick Cannon as the host which is fucking awesome for me, especially because a couple of months ago, attorney James and I went to Atlanta to film appearance on while out, which was supposed to air next month and Time during the release of his new album. Very low, very cool cannon. Nick Cannon issued an apology on facebook titled Truth Not Really. Kinda Truth and reconciliation said. I'm deeply saddened. In a moment so close to reconciliation that the powers that be misused an important moment for all of us to grow closer together and learn about one another. Instead the moment was stolen and hijacked to make an example of an outspoken black man I will not be bullied, silenced or oppressed by any organization. Then he goes on to say I must apologize to my Jewish brothers and sisters for putting them in a painful position, which never my attention, but I know the whole situation has hurt many people and together we make it right. I mean that's it's not an apology and to bring on this guy from public enemy, and that's like number one. Public enemy number one for Anti Semitism. That is hurtful to the Jewish people probably just even having him on the show I don't WanNa fuck he's talking about. Is Definitely not saying I don't believe differently now, just saying. Sorry I said you can have them on the show I. Don't to go after people like having people to review porcelain show. You just can't just came to. Yeah, should Murray with them correct, and then, and the not apologise about it and say stuff like. We're the true Hebrews in. Griff, yeah, right griff Acre stand that one. That's what I was getting at like. What's the? What does he mean by that? were. China, it's Kinda, research behind in this stuff with like. The coober whatever like the? White people were born. It's like the devil and stuff like you know how people say like the racist idea like. Oh, it's like super psycho. Some people say oh. Black people, genetically different right like cannon was essentially. Corroborating incorrect statements like that that griffis making. There's like two trains of thought with an issue as Lomb one is. The Farrakhan one is the other trade to thought the fair contrary of thought is that dark skin is superior in that white people are all devils born sixty six hundred years ago to a demon, and that we have some reckoning coming to to us and that? The Jews are like the list of the white people. Basically I learned brush, dungeons and dragons though. You can't take that away. From Canada's is demanding full ownership as billion dollar operation. He put together while now that he paid for out of pocket when it got a got started. Let's take a quick Dwayne Wade. Who must not followed this on Jackson says at Nick Cannon. We are with you. Fist pound key bleeding. which he then deleted followed by. Followed by I WANNA clarify. My now deleted a tweet. I was not supporting condoning what Nick Cannon specifically said, but I expressed my support of him, owning the content and brandy help create, and then an hour later just to be saved. Way said I was too quick to respond there without being fully informed. Yada Yada Yada. Anti Way, it's all good I mean the can't. Seems like a nice guy. Then he went into this so I would be confused to. It yeah, it's because he was champing deeply offensive wrong beliefs that that's what I can, but that's been something that's been interested in its pop. They're not interested, but shocking. A little bit that's popped out of the end of all of the strife of the civil unrest is the. The Anti Semitism that's all of the sudden. Why why are we going to be anti? Come on. Like the Kinda Kinda came out of nowhere. Goes the whistle every time times tough. That's the first thing people do is like a terrible it. That gets popped in a very Weiss the whatever? Initiative left the New York Times. Smooth a lot to the next one minneapolis all right. Can you read the title of this? It doesn't know store. No, no, no, no, because I love it, I love. It Okay and we'll get there. We'll get back. Starts. From a place of of need need to get better minneapolis many controversies this year. Many wrongs being righted hopefully and this week. It's one about your God given. American right to pop the top off anytime anyplace. You need to do that when it gets too hot I'm talking about taking your shirt off. Letting letting the nips breath. Okay, okay, so the issue is in Minneapolis, anybody. Man, woman whoever can be topless in the street, but only male breasts can be topless in the park, and that is why the story titled Pat Is Nipple Party. Grades, tour, title. I would go to nipple park all the time. Yeah Y'all always know you note. No, because women can't be topless there. You go to nipple you. Go right next to Nipple Park. We're trying to make ends. We're trying to make it park so nipple street exists. We're trying to make nipple parks. Okay, it's a huge bummer because you roll up to the park shirtless with tits out no matter who you. You are and you WanNa lay on the grass. Nope, you gotta lay down in the asphalt. If you want to tend your boobs in your woman, you or transgender, maybe I. Don't know you'd have to go into the park. You couldn't have your female breasts exposed. Is a he restaurant were? If you don't have a tie, they provide you with one like. If you think about it, it's kind of alarming to see a bunch of topless women walking on the street like, but it's very relaxing. It's very relaxing to see it in a park with like the your rights and the trees like playing Frisbee and there's some topless chicks. It's like that's way cooler. What's what the street stuff? You're right I. Don't know I don't know why how you should. We opposite at some point where you could take your boobs out on the street, but maybe it was Mardi gras law because it's so cold up there, man, they give like total freedom in the summer, except apparently in the party, the conservative park system, not the parks, and also apparently they're having a squatters issues in the parks in Minneapolis right now, but that's a separate issue. The city is going to take some votes and we should have an answer by August. Mid August of women can pop the tops off. Parks or not, which to me begs the question. Why are Americans so anti nudity in the first place? Because like other countries, you can go full nude in the park. It is not a big fucking deal. Like I don't think like necessarily every place deeds full news in the park because they might not be comfortable with it, but you should at least allow tops off everywhere. I don't understand it should be a unanimous decision in Waco and they vote on it. Do you real answer? Austin has nudity in the parks. Do. They should have i. don't see the. Well. Do you want a real answer? Your question, which is why does America have such an issue with public nudity? Jer It's because we get the most horny out of any nation we get. We get Horny were number one at Horny nece and when we get Horny, we really get horny and I think that's why I think that you're saying it would just be too out of control I think that's what our founding fathers thought I. Don't think I don't think that to be true today. I bet back then. You could be naked as Helena Park. You think you really think so. That's why they were long sleeves modern the summer. That's why because you could just be naked at a park back then that's I'm sure that's makes total sense will. Make it a park. It just rolls off the tongue naked on the street. What the Hell happened! anyways taking it to the Internet idol, idol barroom chatter, he says. Some of us are still hoping for bottomless parks. Daffy Duck meme with the heart pumping out of his chest I. Don't know if he wants to see. Beavers or Wrongs but yeah, he always happy he wants. Here's the problem. When we were doing this like these stories and I saw this one. I thought about the bottom of. Pubic hair is kind of gross like if it if it gets in your picnic, food or Around the health, the naked people aren't going to be running up to your picnic basket. Pew, They're not gonNA. Win on you. Hugues Yeah Wind pubis fall off. Redo. PUKES GONNA. Hit you in the wind you. It's like a spider floating through the air face with the Pew. Borough. Lack. Not a lot of nipple here. Just relax already people all right. It's not a big deal you see, Dick, you see a vagina once in a while these boobs. It's not a big deal. Yeah, but remember when you were little and sometimes you'd like be at the beach or the pool and you'd see like a lady with like one stray pubic care. Stop it to. Tie It's like do feet long. Stuck there. She's a socializing with the other MOMS. No idea our guys in June, the governor of the United State of Texas Greg Abbott unveiled his plan to reopen public schools this fall, which requires schools to provide in person instruction five days a week beginning August. And, although parents are allowed to opt their children out for distance, learning teachers are being required to end their summer benders and get back resting. They should have the teachers allowed to be doing it by zoom to if some of the students can exactly, and that's that's what allies argue beyond the screen. Yeah, okay, okay, so quick diatribe! Quick Sidebar! A lot of different schools are trying to figure out potentially bringing in different teachers distance-learning teachers that are specific to that but I don't think they've gotten there yet. Essentially Texas right now we're planning on opening in August and you better fucking be here and the teachers, the people who are in charge of keeping your most prized possession alive for thirty five hours a week are not happy. They are not happy about it at all. Stephen Pool the executive director of the United Educators, association and a man who got the. If you can't do, teach idiom backwards penned a letter to Abbott on Monday saying quote, many of our teachers, staff or their family members have underlying health conditions that would place them at severe risk of contact of the contract covid nineteen if they were to while parents are given options to send their children to school or stay home for virtual instruction, teachers and staff don't have that option, so it was his complaint. Yeah. I have a different opinion. I think well. Well, I do the job. Mr Tool. But it's their job, so if you have health conditions. Maybe there's something they can work out. Why don't yeah that's what I'm saying for those people they should do it where they could be on a screen and they don't have to class grocery store. People are going to work, and the nurses are going to work, and everyone's going to work. So if this is your job, you go to it or you get a different job. Now get health underlying health conditions different story, but the average teacher can shut the fuck up. I Yeah I. I also WANNA point out that being faced with the scenario of having to do a dangerous job or not, getting paid is a scenario that coal miners and porn stars face every single day their career well, lots of people have been facing it like Marcus point out throughout this entire. Bus Drivers, you think a central bus drivers like. Don't realize it taking a huge fucking risk every day. I'm not, but my wife is big time. I'm a pussy, but my wife is everyday. Everyone, folks are yeah, so I want to hear it from the teachers unless they have health conditions well stupid. According to tweet from someone named Jessica because that's what drives the new cycles now in response teachers in Texas. Really all around the country been writing wills. And drafting them at record rates in preparation for the school year. You really should have that right. Yeah, on the one hand I also I believe that it's never too early to start planning. Twenty teachers, and everyone else should be right in their wills. Yeah, yeah, but on the other end, guys. It's fucking terrible. The teachers have to spend money on lawyers to figure out how whatever's left of their forty five thousand dollar annual salary will be divided. You do get paid too little. I'm with with you on that just left. Side. Guys that is going to do it for hard factor. Thank you so much for listening.

How Trump Loses the G.O.P.

The Argument

How Trump Loses the G.O.P.

"I'm Michelle Goldberg. I'm David Lee and heart, and I'm Rostow fit. And this is the argument this week more Russia revelations and the unending federal shutdown is Trump finally endanger of having his party decisively. Turn on him actually think they could get rid of him relatively quickly. Then the third women's March is this weekend. We talk about the infighting that splintering the movement and ask whether the left has an anti semitism problem. Do you both agree that the women's March is never going to recover from this? And then of course, a recommendation there's like a slight undercurrent of dominatrix, which it sounds like is what you want out of your Mary Poppins character. So it was another chaotic week for President Trump have not been good for the US president this weekend. The president took the notes from his interpreter. And instructed them not to discuss what happened. There was a counter intelligence investigation into whether the president of the United States was a threat to the United States. So is Trump finally at risk of losing Republican support. I know many listeners will be skeptical, and frankly, so am I but David thinks it could happen. So David can you persuade us that Republican support for Trump is less solid than it seems I will try to do. So I really do think that he's vulnerable which I'm not saying he's definitely going to lose that support. But I think people are really underestimating the odds that it will happen. And here's why they're looking at his approval rating, which has remained pretty solid right around forty percent. Which means he has the support of what ninety percent of Republicans and. They're saying just because it's always been that way. It's going to always remain that way. And I think that's wrong. I think he's deeply vulnerable. I think even at this approval rating Republicans got crushed in the mid terms. And I think essentially as twenty twenty gets closer Republicans are gonna realize just what a weight around their necks Trump is. And so I think if any further thing goes wrong for him, whether it's this shutdown spiraling out of control, whether it's a recession. Whether it's the Muller report, I really think he is quite vulnerable of losing Republican support. And the idea that he won't because he hasn't yet is misreading of how politics works. Can. I say something about the stability of his approval rating because it's actually maybe a little bit less stable than we thought it's been really interesting to see a creep down to around thirty seven percent in the last couple of polls and his disapproval rating is at record highs. And I think mices. Edition is that this is because this is the first time that large number of Americans are feeling material consequences from having this like incompetent madman in the office. You know, so far there's been a tax on sort of higher level concerns. Right. If you're talking about like maslow's pyramid of human needs. Now, suddenly, they're people feeling, you know, missing their flights worrying about their next paycheck food stamps, pay for ten percent of all of groceries in America. Right. So if there's a gap in food stamps going out that's going to have shockwaves on a big part of the economy. And I think Republicans are may be willing to see treason to own the libs. I don't know if they're willing to see kind of a real hit to their own economic well-being to own the lips. So I mean, I think there's nothing that could get Donald Trump impeached faster than if America's airports suddenly shut down. Right. I mean, so I I do think in a sense that. You know, if you extend the shutdown out across four to six months or something then. Yeah, I think I think absolutely Republicans would start turning on Trump, but my difficulty here is my usual difficulty, which is that a lot of the things that get cited as things that should add up to Republicans turning on Trump are things that have been baked into his support for a long time and David you wrote a a viral and popular column making version of this argument week and a half ago that according to some reports was read by the president himself and threw him into into into a rage spiral. And that him basically laid out a long list of things that you could reasonably put together to make a case for impeaching Trump. But a lot of those things were things that were I think totally predictable based on his conduct during the campaign. You know, using Twitter to harass people investigating him using Twitter to attack a free press. Having the the constant appearance of corruption with everything connected to his business dealings, and to me that kind of stuff is just that's that's sort of assumed by the thirty five to forty four percent of America that is willing to stick with him. And so you still need something bigger not just an accumulation of things, but an actual decisive tipping point. And I'm open to the possibility that it's coming. But I guess my question for you, David is do you think you can get to Republicans turning on him through a steady accumulation of the kind of things you talk about in your column, or do you agree with me that there has to be something bigger and more decisive? I half agree with you. So I don't think it's just going to be more columnists laying out more reasons, why Trump is unfit to be president. Although estimates you're powers, David. Yes. If only, but I do think that he is so vulnerable right now that a lot of us. Are overestimating what that tipping point could be. I don't think it needs to be something. Enormous. Right. I think the shutdown has the potential to be certainly an economic downturn us. I think the Mahler report does. And so I I guess let's look at what happened this week with Steve king, right? Steve king is this white nationalist pretty proudly racist. Republican congressman from Iowa who for years has been saying outrageous things has been allied with Neo Nazi friendly politicians in Europe. And it didn't cost him at all. He wasn't sanctioned by the party. And then he said something else offensive this week. And suddenly the Republican party has started turn on him. And I think that's a reminder that when you have someone who has real political vulnerabilities real problems, the situation can switch very quickly from seeming like all of their problems don't matter to own my goodness there in real. Double and I am not guaranteeing. That's going to happen with Trump. I just think it's entirely plausible. And I think we shouldn't assume that just because it hasn't happened yet. It won't happen. Michelle. I'm curious about your take on the on the Steve king business for listeners who aren't following it closely. He's basically been stripped of all his committee slots, and basically the institutional Republican party is clearly going to support a challenger against him. What what do you make of that? Steve king was the exact same person that he is now less than two months ago. When the bulk of the Republican party supported his re-election effort, if Republicans get the message that there is some danger in playing footsie with white nationalism never mind openly, embracing it that seems like Republicans at least some Republicans are represent our understanding that there is a cost to Trumpism if not to Trump himself, and so you know, I mean on the one. Hand it's like a little bit too little too late. But it's still a very very good thing. And at the same time, I tend to think that the tipping point comes when people feel in their lives that it is unsustainable to have this incompetent demagogue in the White House. And I'm sort of surprised that it has taken this long for all these sort of like real tangible consequences of not having functioning executive branch to be manifest in people's lives. Right. Like, if you live in Puerto Rico, you felt what it means to have this person in the White House. But a lot of us have been really insulated from those consequences. Okay. No. I guess I agree with that in a sense that I was surprised as well by the capacity of the executive branch to function semi normally in the first two years of the Trump presidency. And it's since it's also true that you know, at this point. Many of the people who enabled that functioning to happen have departed. I think that strengthens David's argument that you could you could get to a tipping point. But the tipping point has to be big. Well, let me ask you this Ross. Let's imagine we don't get the big tipping point. Let's instead imagine that his approval ratings drift down as Michelle pointed out they've fallen a point or two in the last few weeks. So let's imagine that continues and we get into mid twenty nineteen and Donald Trump's got an approval rating in the thirties. And then you have all these Republican senators who are looking at twenty twenty reelection Colorado Iowa on and on and on and they're thinking, oh my goodness. At this rate. We're gonna lose our Senate seats because Donald Trump, what do you think happens? Then I mean, I think you get more Republicans trying to sort of step up their public criticism of the president. But I still think the numbers that you're talking about then we'll be five or ten. When Republican senators none of whom are willing to actually join in an impeachment and removal effort, but do either of you share my vague sense that something has shifted in terms of Trump's like aura of invincibility or aura of impermeability. I mean, just personally he's gone from seeing extremely menacing to seeming kind of pathetic right in my column today at called him, the authoritarian version of Norma Desmond or the Norma Desmond of authoritarians. And that he's the sort of a good line. Delusional figure stocking alone around the White House with these pathetic obsequious retainers who are propping up his fantasies, but he just scenes less powerful than he did even if you months ago, and I wonder if that senses shared on the other side, I mean, it's really interesting to look at the drudge report every day and see how drudge is really highlighting the effects of the shutdown, right? I mean, it seems like there's a sense among at least some conservatives. But this is a really perilous situation for them. I mean, I felt that way about Trump obviously, a little bit longer than you have Michelle I, but that he his essential quality is his is his weakness rather than his sort of authoritarian threat. But I do think we're in this new terrain where the people around him who even anti-trump conservatives tended to trust like General Mattis are gone. And I think you could see some of the drudge stuff as drudge maybe frantically signalling to Trump himself. Like, hey, what you know? What are you doing man, you got you got to end the shutdown? Okay. Okay. And he and he does have to have to end the shutdown. I agree that something has changed. I mean, I think look before the midterms there is this sense that he had some kind of magical powers to defy polls. And nothing matters LL and all that stuff. The idea that no matter what was going on. He was gonna win elections because. He did it once, but I think the midterm show. That's not true. And that's why I am not guaranteeing or even predicting that he's going to be impeached and removed from office. But this idea that the status quo is destined to remain. So that he's going to have the support of ninety percent of Republicans. I think is misplaced. I think he has no plan to get out of the shutdown. He may still figure out a way to do it. But I think he's in real jeopardy. And as that sense of his power has changed. I hope his many opponents, including Republicans who are alarmed by him, don't despair and understand that this is a moment essentially to keep up the criticism of him and really try to win over some of his supporters and to see that disguise a huge problem for the Republican party in the long term. You know, I still kind of nurture fantasies that one way that Trump could be removed from office is the way that other. Other autocrats have been removed from office where you would just see millions of people in the streets until he leaves. You know, we've talked about impeachment. We've talked about resignation. I think the American people if you had you know, three percent of the American population. So say like three times the number that came up for the women's March just really taking to the streets and refusing to leave until Donald Trump left. I actually think they could get rid of him relatively quickly at least the evidence of history and other countries suggests that they could I think listeners probably by now. No, I'm given to optimism. But I do have this lingering fear that if things get worse for Trump. You could start seeing him taking actions that are more damaging to the country and his incompetence doing more damage, whether it's pulling out of NATO, whether it's, you know, the breakdown of the transportation system, and I do worry about that in twenty nineteen in a way that I sort of have never worried about an. In my adult lifetime. I would say that I worried about precisely that a lot in the first two months of the administration, and I've worried less about it since. And now, I'm worrying a little more about it again. Although my take is that in terms of the politics of ending the Trump presidency, the shutdown of the American transportation system by Trump himself would lead to his removal and mass protests of the kind Michelle is describing would not for reasons I think that partially just have to do with how big sprawling decentralized polarize, the United States is. And then there's also the fact which we're going to talk about in the next segment that even the incredibly successful women's March has run into all kinds of problems lately. So we'll take a quick break. And we'll be right back. And. Hi, this is Deb Allen crossword columnist for the New York Times, here's a clue for you. What's the perfect comforting twenty-first-century habit? The New York Times crossword try today and enjoy a month free. Visit NY times dot com slash solve we're back. This year's women's March is taking place nationwide this weekend. The first March was held on the heels of Trump's inauguration, and it was a huge phenomenon with hundreds of thousands of people marching in DC and similar marches springing up all over the country at the time. It seemed to embody the surging opposition to the Trump presidency and the apparent unity of the resistance to his administration. Four of the marches leaders and organizers to make a Mallory Bob bland Carmen Perez, and Linda Sarsour were named time's one hundred most influential people, but in the early days of the organization and consistently since there's been a second narrative that some of the organizers of the March have an anti semitism problem. So we're going to talk a bit about this how it's fracturing one of the most important mass movements of the Trump era. And what it says about the antisemitism that may or may not lurk on the contemporary left. So Michelle, can you explain to us what's going on here? The night. Donald Trump was elected was this devastating shattering night. For a lot of people. And there was a woman in Hawaii proposing that women's March in Washington the day after the inauguration, and it quickly went viral, and all the sudden, you have all of these people planning this March, and it really happened in the sort of organic leaderless way people, you know, stepped forward to lead it. And then it became clear to them that it was going to be a disaster. If this was led just by a group of of white women, and so it needed to have more multicultural more multiracial leadership. And I think the the first problem with how those leaders were chosen. So basically there was a group of women including to make a Mallory and lenders are sore, and they had backgrounds in different parts of civil rights organizing. But so they came in they can have quickly assumed leadership roles, and I want to say that they'd actually did an amazing job. Right. This was a Heroux ick effort to organize this massive March on incredibly short notice and to navigate between a lot of different, visions and politics, and do it with a lot of people who were just meeting, but to make a Mallory is one of these four women and one of the reasons that were in this. Terrible situation is because she has really consistently refused to disavow Louis Farrakhan. And in a winning I feel a degree of sympathy. Because you know, I think that it hurts to be asked to disavow her. And disavow some of these some of the leaders, even though, you know, by now, there's no question that their leadership has been a catastrophe for for those listeners for whom Louis Farrakhan is not a household name. This is kind of an interesting recurrence of a similar debate. On the left back how many years ago now twenty years ago when Farrakhan leader of the nation of Islam helped organize the million man March, which is this famous, you know, sort of March of black specifically black male empowerment in Washington DC that garnered tons of positive coverage, but at the same time Farrakhan, then as Farrakhan now was associated with fairly poisonous anti semitism. That goes goes. Beyond blaming Jews for the slave trade into using language of termites, right and things things. Like that. I mean, there's there's really no dispute that Farrakhan, this sort of now aging figure from the nation of Islam has an anti semitism problem. So the the other the other thing that's going on. Right. So I it seems to me there's sort of two strands here. One is Malary's connection to Farrakhan her past praise for him and her attempts to distance herself from him without explicitly disavowing him the other thing, right? Is that the tablet Jewish magazine? Did a big story about basically if I have this right antisemitic things that were said at the initial organizing metex is that right? Yeah. And so and again, this is a little bit hard to parse in part because the tablet report of the initial organizing meeting. It was mostly anonymous sources who are repeating this conversation. Bob bland and to make a Mallory deny outright, you know, someone else I've spoken to who used to work for the women's March said that this wasn't you know, sort of an open secret that the first you heard a bit was in the tablet article. And so it strikes me as on the one hand, totally plausible. But I feel like I just don't know. But basically what tablet reported was that to make a Mallory and Carmen Perez were browbeating, a Jewish organizer about particular, Jewish responsibility for the slave trade. And so, you know, this is sort of like bubbled beneath the surface, and then it gets conflicted with something else, which is related, but also very different, which is Linda, sir, sores anti Zionism and. Advocacy for Palestine, which a lot of people want to say as defacto antisemitic. I don't believe that that is defacto antisemitic. But I also believe that it becomes much more difficult to say that these arguments aren't antisemitic when they are coupled with associations that are that clearly are so you end up having this incredible. Stew of toxic things. I'll mix together because there's a a long history in civil rights movements of you know, can a very painful tensions between African Americans and Jews right him in some ways, this is like one of the original fissures in civil rights organizing. And then you have the fact that Israel is often used as a cudgel, you know, with which to beat activists. But then on the other end, you have genuine anti-semitism. And so all this stuff is mixed together. And there's also I think a lot of. White progressives. And I would put myself in this category who are not comfortable being the ones who say, you know, these women of color need to step down. But that hesitation has led us to this current moment where all of these organizations pulling out of support for the women's March, including nee roll, the DNC the human rights campaign. You know, Emily's list are they're going to be to women's marches as the end game in New York there so in it's it's a total mess. Right. Like in New York. They're going to be two separate women's marches. You know, some states have canceled their marches, you know, you have debates in synagogues about whether or not people should be encouraged to March. It's just it's a mess to me this should serve as a reminder to progressives about how tricky identity issues are. And I think that there are few things that have the ability to. Tear apart the left probably nothing that has the ability to tear apart the left and make the left less effective and do a giant favor to people like Donald Trump, then falling down into it. Michelle called this toxic stew of arguing over over who's more oppressed and trading charges of racism, and antisemitism and all of this stuff. And and look racism is a huge problem in this country. Racism is a bigger problem than antisemitism in this country and be antisemitism is also a problem in this country. But when people on the left end up spending all of their energy fighting about these issues, it basically makes them ineffective from a political standpoint. And the civil rights movement is a great example of that because the black and the Jewish communities were incredible allies, right? The three civil rights workers murdered and Mississippi were an African American man from Mississippi and to Jews from New York, and when those communities were allied, they they did enormously. Good things in the. Oh rights movement. And when they started to come apart, they became much less effective. And I look at all of this with sadness. And I also look at all of it and say, this is I think an important reminder to people on the left that that if you just go down this rabbit hole of fighting about identity stuff. You're undermining yourself. I so so can I can I can I say something as as a as a member of the political, right? I mean, so on the one hand, I feel sort of a shock of recognition and identification. When I look at this debate. Because what you're seeing in this debate is what happens when you have a more grassroots politics that is subject to less establishment institutional and elite control, and it's happened repeatedly on the right where the more grassroots your politics are the more likely you are to have bigotry paranoia conspiracy theories and racism bubble up. And and it's one. Hasn't been first second. Yes. Because I actually don't think that that's I mean, I think that part of the problem with what's happening right now. It's not as if these four activists bubbled up through the grass roots. Right. They were sort of selected to lead a movement that had already sort of emerged amorphous -ly out of this post, Donald Trump rage. They were kind of pleased on top. And to me part of the problem is that they didn't emerge through any sort of grassroots process. Right. If I think that if they had if they had really kind of come up through the organization, and if there actually was an organization that had some ability to create accountability. I don't think we would have come to this place. She I I'm I guess I'm a little skeptical that that's quite right, or I mean, I I guess I'm just saying there's a lot of politically unexpressed, racism and paranoia and conspiracy theories. Among rank and file democratic voters that don't get expressed right now because the institutional Democratic Party is strong enough to not express them. But the process of a more grassroots party is likely to make them more expressed. But I really think that the problem with the women's March and the problem with some of these other sort of amorphous formations is much more a problem of like, I guess what you might call vanguard ISM where you have these people United by a sort of in co hate sense of protesting and grievance. And then you have a small group that hijacks the movement. I mean, if you look at the principles of the women's March that they created for this first big manifestation, which called for old bunch of things, including, you know, sex workers rights, whatever you think of the merits of those those weren't ideas that sort of bubbled up from the millions of people who were out there marching those were views. That were common in cutting edge feminist circles. And so there was actually a huge disconnect. I think between most of the women who showed up to that March because they were furious that America had just elected a sexual predator, and the sort of list of me she left wing demands that became a platform for the women's March. Yeah, I I agree with that. But that and that also happens on the right, like, the, you know, the tea party begins as a sort of grassroots freak out about some combination of bailout bailouts for Wall Street, the financial crisis and the deficit, and then it gets sort of captured and channeled by activists at freedomworks or the Heritage Foundation who have sort of a pre existing list of right-wing views, but the other thing that happens, and this is where I have a weird sort of sympathy for the dilemmas that the women's March proposes right? You know, one of the challenges of contemporary American politics is that the extremes often have a point. So if you go back to the right in the in the early to mid two thousand right one of one of the arguments that kept happening was a version of this. Where people who supported the Iraq war would say, look all the conservatives who were against the Iraq war are just against the Iraq war because they are anti-semites, and you know, and they and they think some Jewish neo-con. Conspiracy has lied us into war and the truth was that a lot of right wing opponents of the war did flirt with semitism, but how is that true of the women's March? I mean, you know, the debate about Louis Farrakhan who calls juice termites and his VERA Lindley anti-gay, and is just you know, kind of an all around repulsive figure. I don't even I don't even see where the like he's got a point. Not that. It's not that. Farrakhan has a point. It's that as you yourself said early on, right? You are someone on the left who thinks it's who thinks that critics of Israel tend to have a strong point that shouldn't be just described as anti semitism at the same time. These groups that you want to defend on anti-zionist terms. Also, do clearly have overlap with people who if they are not themselves anti semitic make excuses for antisemitic arguments. So it seems like you are in the same position that a right-wing critic of the Iraq war might have been underbush where you want to say, look, we want to separate this left wing position that I think is good from the antisemitism that it gets attached to. And that's you know, that's a tricky thing to do. Right, right. And I think, and I think that that is why again, this is so complicated. Because I mean, I'm very aware that we're like three white people having this conversation, and that you know, I mean, it's kind of that. I'm like. Left most persons conversation. Even though I'm taking a position somewhat to the right of a lot of the people on the women's involved with women's March. But. I do nonetheless tend to think that it is incumbent on people who do want to change the discussion, for example around Israel. And who do think that there are a lot of bad faith, accusations of anti-semitism out there to police actual anti-semitism very carefully because besides the autonomous evil of anti-semitism allowing it to creep in undermines this argument that a lot of people have spent a lot of time trying to make possible to have in mainstream American politics. Do you both agree that the women's marches never going to recover from this that the obviously the movement can? But that the March itself is permanently sullied by this. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean, again, if you look at all of the organizations that have distanced themselves from the women's March, including the the DNC, and I'm glad that they have. But if you aspire to be. Abroad based progressive manifestation and yet. Every kind of left organization in the country. Feels the need to distance themselves from you, then you sort of failed by definition. Yeah. I mean, I guess that's my case that these identity issues aren't just fraught in terms of how to appeal to the white working class there. Also fraught within progressivism, and I think that's worth reflecting on. Yes. The the women's March in this manifestation is going to be crippled by this as a force, but the basic dynamic is going to play itself out over and over again as the Democratic Party of all in the direction that it seems to be evolving into. And so I think the David Leonhardt part of the Democratic Party even more than Michelle Goldberg part is going to have to wrestle with these issues more than UNESCO. -sarily want to I think that's fair. Good. Well, on a note of total fairness. The women's March in all of its multiple manifestations will be happening this weekend, and for listeners if you're going or if you're not going, or if you see something interesting while you're going and wanna talk about it. Leave us voicemail at three four seven nine one five four three two four. And we might just play you on the show. Now, it's time for our weekly recommendation and this week, it's my turn which gives me a chance to get something off my chest that will probably brand me as a social outcast more than I am already for the rest of my career. Which is that. I don't like the original Mary Poppins movie adaptation with Julian. And of course, there's a sequel out, which I haven't seen starring Emily blunt, which has gotten mixed reviews. And so having it come out as a good chance for me to recommend that everybody should go back and read p l Travers amazing Mary Poppins novels which are vastly better than the Julie Andrews movie. I guarantee you that they're better than the Emily blunt movie and the displacement by the Julie Andrews version of Travers offals, I think is a great cultural tragedy that you can remedy by buying them. Reading them read them to your kids. Them to yourselves. They're fantastic. I recommend them. Had you read them before. You saw the original Mary Poppins movie is that what can of colored your view of it? Yeah. And I was probably indoctrinated, right? This probably comes from my mom. I think she read them to me when I was five or six or seven years old. And then I saw the Julie Andrews movie, and you know, I mean, the Julie Andrews movie, of course, I understand why people like it. It has great songs and dancing and everything else, but fundamentally the character of Mary Poppins in the books is less syrupy, less sugary much more of a sort of difficult, and sometimes mean character, and the books are just these sort of rich tapestry of weird the adventures the kids have loop in all kinds of mythologies. And you know, they have a different adventure in every chapter. And sometimes it's a terrifying adventure that Mary Poppins seems to impose on them as a punishment. There's just all kinds of things going on in the book that don't make it into the movies, but above all, it's that I find the cat. Actor as played by Julie Andrews is just too nice. I saw the sequel or goes the second one impart because you know, I live near movie theater. It's winter. I see every kid's movie, and you know, it was enjoyable enough. And Emily blunt. I I really like, and I sort of I sort of had a hope that she would have a slightly. Do you think she has a sharper edge, then Julianne? Yes, she she seems like slightly more like there's like a slight undercurrent of dominatrix, which it sounds like is what you want out of your Mary Poppins character. You know, I really wish I could argue with you. But that is complete and correct. And on that fifty shades of Mary Poppins note, that's our show for the week. Thanks for listening. I hope I didn't just ruin your childhood. And if you like what you hear we'd love if you would leave us a rating or review on apple podcasts. If you have a question or comment for the show.

Nearly a podcast network on that reclaim here with Jane Costa Propublica Darren Land. There has been an interesting chain reaction. Of comments stemming from originally, it was nick cannon went on a on a podcast and then What did he say what happened? So it was a bad sign when he was joined by a professor. Griff for those who may be aware of the rap group public enemy He was kicked out in the late nineteen eighties for being a rabid. Anti, Semite So first. Let's talk about what Nick Cannon said that result in him, getting fired from his Improv show wild and out a program when I worked at MTV appeared to be on twenty four hours A. And his commentary was not just rabidly Anti. Semitic and also. Very Anti White and a very specific way. One of his comments he made is. You can't be antisemitic when we are. The Semitic people African. Americans are the people when we are the same people who they want to be. That's our birthright rear. The True Hebrews and this happened a couple of days after Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver. Sean Jackson shared a quote on instagram that he thought was attributed to Adolf Hitler. which is bad, but it actually comes from Louis Farrakhan, which is also bad in which she said that black people are the real children of Israel, and the Jewish people are trying to achieve world domination and extort America. So, what does this mean this thing about the real children of Israel, and the and the real against obviously world domination I understand, but there's a more specific and giant unfamiliar claim being advanced here. So this all goes back to the legacy of in some ways nation of Islam, but also groups that came before nation of Islam, namely you May. Most people may not have heard of this organization. The morrish science temple which was set up by drew Ali who then one of his disciples who believes himself to be a reincarnation of drew. Ali It Wallace. Wallace fired. Mohammed then helped founded nation of Islam, and it gets very complicated, and the relationships between these groups is complex, but among these belief systems is that African. Americans are the true quote. Unquote lost found nation of Islam. That is the idea that African Americans in America and black people writ large are the Real Semites and the true in some senses. The real. I'm trying to think of the best way to put this because it is a name and stupid, but it is the idea. That African Americans are the true Jews in some senses, and that Jewish people writ large have essentially wrongly taken on the mantle of being. Semites of being truly. A part of the lost tribes of Israel so it's not it's not a stolen valor, that's the yes, in some senses, and so it's a swollen valor in like combined with a longstanding desire to re-claim like deep roots of a black identity, and like a deep pistilli of black civilize right it all stems from You know you see the origins of Nation of Islam. Islam in the Early Nineteen Thirties in Chicago, and so it's millions of African. Americans are moving to Chicago as part of the great migration, and they are coming to Chicago in the midst of political racism in the midst of Jim, Crow laws in the midst of Chicago's own lengthy history of racism that many people would have experienced. Millions of people would have experienced very. Directly Nation of Islam is the argument the actually you are. Uniquely special that white people have stolen something from you and I. Think it's actually worthwhile going into a little bit of what nation of Islam believes because some of this that you see your I, wanted to make the point that a lot of this that you get from Nick. Cannon or even from people who have never read an issue of final call which nation of Islam's newspaper that they tried to hand to black people when they see them. A lot of this has filtered outward I did some research, and there are references to drew Ali Jay Z. Songs. There are references to the concepts. Of Nation of Islam, that filter outwards, and it stops being so direct, and it starts being about black list, which is not exactly true, so I want to quote briefly from Louis Farrakhan who Refounded Nation of Islam in nineteen seventy seven because he did not believe that the leadership of the organization was truly representative of Elijah Muhammad. Is, probably most famous for being Yoka the face of Nation of Islam for about thirty to forty years after Wallace Fard Muhammad family, but he's disappeared in nineteen, thirty four. No one knows what happened to him. So from from Elijah Muhammad, and I'm going to quote from Farrakhan briefly so. Large Muhammad says. The black man is the original man from him all brown yellow, red and white people. By using a special method of birth control law, the black man was able to produce the white race. This method of birth control was developed by a black scientist known as Yaqoob. You may have heard that term who envisioned making and teaching a nation of people who would be diametrically opposed to the original people, a race of people who would one day rule the original people in the earth for a period of six thousand years, Yakub promised his followers that were grafted nation from his own people, and he would teach them how to rule his people, the system of tricks and lies where they were used deceit to divide and conquer and divide the unity of darker people, but brother against one another. Another and act as mediators and unreachable sites, and so when Tim Research of meet the press the late Tim Russert. Asked Farrakhan about this in an interview. That must have been truly fascinating. He says that it's not a silly question. It's a scientific question that white people came from the original people black people, and then he asked you the teaching of Elijah Muhammad, which is that white people are blue, eyed devils, and that you're well, you have not been saints in the way you've acted towards the darker people of the world, even towards your own people, and so a lot of this it you, Elijah Muhammad his own history and his own history with Malcolm X. a lot of this gets transmogrify. And so you will hear you know. We even saw images last week of NBA. NBA Legends like Alan Iverson being so excited to meet Louis Farrakhan because the language of Nation of Islam is transmogrify into one of black uplift. It is a language that teaches African Americans to respect themselves Adam. Server at the Atlantic wrote a great piece a couple of years ago when there were members of the women's March, with close ties to Farrakhan and there was a lot of criticism of that in talking about how in some neighborhoods nation of Islam know people come back from prison joined nation of Islam and suddenly they're clean cut. They stop using drugs. They were not wearing bow ties and dress shirts, and there's this idea that you know. They're teaching lists uplift of African Americans, but it's. It's a canard, because it's an uplift that can only happen through the idea that white people are inferior that Malcolm X. put as he put it thoughtful. White people know they are inferior to black people, and that Jewish people have committed endless offenses against African Americans and are the people who are lying to african-americans and dividing them against one another. They are the people who are in Farrakhan's trump's convincing black people to become lesbians and homosexuals or Trans People. They are the people who are truly fooling African Americans and there's a book the secret relationship between blacks and Jews reference last week as someone telling me on twitter, oh. You have to read this book Jewish. I said absolutely not. Argues that Jewish people were the secret force behind the slave trade, and a third volume claims that Jewish people were responsible for the rise of the KU. Klux Klan and nineteen twenties which we believe the. Second, iteration of the clan, a famously antisemitic eight group, but Farrakhan Explains Nation of his explains Oh. They're anti-semitism is just a ruse to hide how they were controlled by Jews and Henry Louis Gates made the point and nineteen ninety two article that this wasn't effort of fomenting ethnic isolationism to drive Jewish people and Black people apart to essentially say yo when these groups. Groups are isolated from one another when they're targeting one another. They can't work together as they did so Austin. In the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties, and we're targeted by white supremacists for doing so there were a number of Jewish Americans were murdered by the clan during the civil rights movement for standing up for African Americans and so gates makes the point now. Now drops a piece in show notes about how the book is one of the most sophisticated instances of hate literature yet compiled, and we're still seeing ripple effects. You know if you talk to people who bullies this sometimes, so reference the book sometimes they'll reference Farrakhan, but sometimes it just think they've heard or just some conspiracy theory that they've heard pieces of. Of and so, it's an extraordinarily pernicious belief system one that also and I've been trying to make this point. It eliminates the existence of African American Jewish people of which there are many, and it basically means that for African American Jews. They are forced to in some ways. Choose between being black in Jewish when that's. That's a canard in of itself, but. Nick Cannon is not. In like he's not a nation of Islam person right so I actually I tried to figure that out because he talks about how he wants to wear a turban more on television I did some research on this and he talks about how like you know he doesn't do that because he's worried about what people might think about it Turbans, yeah. There is something happening here. A kind of a second order vibration right some Farrakhan ideas out to people who are not. Like strictly speaking and a why followers right, they don't believe that Elisa Muhammad lives on a spaceship that cost fifteen billion dollars and a circling the globe, but it gets into a lot of these viewpoints you know whether they're part of Ano- wire kind of transmogrify away from that are for instance. Nick Cannon believes in Melanin theory with the idea that a higher level. Level of Melanin makes African, Americans, or darker, skinned people, smarter or physically superior, and even give some supernatural abilities and so there is. There is a pretty prominent former professor at City College of New York Name Leonard Jeffries. Who talked about this a lot and his nephew Hakeem Jeffries? It has in the US House of Representatives, and so he actually lost his job at. Leonard Jeffries as chairman of the Black Studies Department because he said Jewish. People funded the Atlantic slave trade and believes that black people because of Melanin had special abilities, and so he believed you know white people are ice. People while black people are son, people who are compassionate and peaceful, and it's interesting because you see these views and these ideas percolating especially in areas, where and especially among people for whom Afro. Centrism offers a sense of self respect, but it's a self respect built on an understanding that is false and. Great so i. think that the concept of kind of. BESPOKE AFRO! Centrism is something that we've. We've touched on a little bit on the podcast talking about kind of hotel theory and all that kind of thing, but it's worth I mean I think it's worth understanding that what's going on here is both. A sauce I saw a piece this week about the conspiracy singularity of like a lot of different conspiracy theory community is, and this is outside specifically like Afro centric or specifically a you know black conspiracy theories. kind of coming together and online spaces and non and the Anti Vaccine Movement. Cross pollinating, and a lot of you know a lot of different. Hyper Trophy explanations for the world. You know finding common cause and I think what's happening I. think that this is both. Kind of expression of that or a version of it and ties into a specifically. You know black American tradition of trying to find a history where one can get it in which the people who are. Auto died acts the certain autodial tradition of. Reading the books in the effort centric bookstore and coming to your own theory of how exactly you know ancient. The ancient Egyptians and The kind of. Malaya Empire and all that kind of stuff tie into other things that are objectively conspiracy theory Basi's so it's not that surprising that Louis Farrakhan and wire being treated less as sources of religious knowledge here than of a different explanation for the current state of black people. And a way to reclaim dignity for black people in the same way that you know the efforts to emphasize the African heritage of ancient, Egyptians can go down in a kind of alternate afro-centric history theory. Right I also think that this is happening I. think that there's. Something that people I've seen some people claiming like this seems very sudden, but it's not. This has been a kind of percolating conversation a percolating belief system for. African Americans in the edits elsewhere since the nineteen thirties, and under an even earlier because. The morrish science temple has an older history, and that is one of the predecessor organizations of Nation of Islam that holds that Americans are Moore's descended from the Morrish peoples who were kicked out Spain, and it's understanding that all dark skinned people should be united, and you should be one, and so it is that senses are appointed of a attempt to develop a sense of self respect attempt to develop a sense of history in which African Americans and Africans in. In general were not colonized were never defeated, were wrongly treated as slaves, being in actuality, the true descendants of the lost tribes, of Israel but that in itself necessitates ideology. That holds that it's white people who are the ice people. It's white. People who are inferior. There is no idea in this that what if everyone re pretty much on an equivalent plane and people are sometimes predisposed to evil there is, but there's an understanding like no. No this happened because. You know a black scientist through created white people use them to split US apart and that there there is a conspiracy to explain this. Conspiracy, theories of written a lot about our means to explain the unexplainable, and there are inherently self sealing so when you tell people that Jews did not in creating facts play a big role in the Atlantic slave trade. You know you get people being like that's what they want you to think. Because again they're self sealing, but it's essentially racial and on it's a it's an all encompassing theory that explains everything, and there isn't entity that's coming to save us, and but in this case what's coming to save us? Is Ourselves against white people, but it also it. I think that something that people. This is why I thought that it was particularly harmful for Dwayne Wade to tweet in support of Nick Cannon tweet later deleted and tried to explain for saying that you've been standing up for us. Keep fighting when one of Farrakhan Nation of Islam's most pernicious viewpoints is that Jews convinced black people to be lgbt and that it's because black man can't get jobs, because of the Jews, that black women become gay 'cause. That's how that works so I think it's. It's really worth talking about this. As a conspiracy theory, but conspiracy theory, all conspiracy theories that has victims that has True harms you. It was Elijah Muhammed who invited members of the American Nazi party to meet with Nation of Islam because in the early nineteen sixties, including George Lincoln Rockwell the founder of the American Nazi party because he viewed them as having similar interests and know if you find yourself having similar interests of the American Nazi party. You fucked up like that's just how that works. So, so that's. Exactly where I wanted to take this right? which is that the sort of? Macro, context is that you have cosmopolitan and nationalist tendencies in all different kinds of community. And because America is mostly a country, white people mostly country White Christian people, the sort of most prominent political conflict in American history is between a kind of. White or white Christian nationalists, ethnic nationalist vision of the country and a cosmopolitan integrationist alternative, but that's just because like White Christian. People are in the numerical majority. Right in the same conceptual conflicts exist inside. Of Communities and you know something. I I was reading a couple of weeks ago. eldridge cleavers at biography and he is. He's very critical of the mainstream civil rights movement, which at the time there was a lot of Jewish involvement in because I, think bean stream Jewish community leaders in the United States saw of vested. In a cosmopolitan vision of the country that naturally allied the with with Martin Luther King there were a lot of rabbis and the march to Soma with. John Lewis and stuff like that. A cleaver is saying like all these guys are trash and he writes very admiringly Abou- revisionist Zionists who at that time were. A little bit marginal even in Israel, but are currently the sort of dominant political tendency in in Israel and that Yahu, and his family are very much. A part of that and cleaver was saying it's like we need that, but for us, and it's not at all like an indie Semitic conspiracy theory, but nationalisms. Have this like deep affinity for antisemitism to the point where Netanyahu is allied in the international arena with lots of people like victor or Bon. WHO SEEMED TO BE ANTI? Semites it's. It's the same as like Farrakhan. The American Nazi party right in it's not. It's not like even a horseshoe theory thing really is that there's a deep conceptual affinity between different strands of ethnic nationalism with they come into tension with one another. If there's a conflict over something concrete whether that's like what a rights in the West Bank or like who owns which stores on the south side of Chicago but on a abstract level there's there's this kind of deep alignment and hostility to a contrary cosmopolitan tight vision of the world that you know. Exists it, so it's like the same tension exists everywhere even as the kind of specific stations of it very quite quite dramatically, and when you had after after ee as you were saying Jane like it's not sudden. None of these ideas are new, but part of what happened. Is that after George Floyd was killed. We had a lot of protests a lot more people talking about a lot more stuff and just like a lot of. Everybody is given their opinions more than they used to. And so some of these ideas come out of the woodwork that I. Think people are not as familiar with the fact that like in African American communities, all communities everywhere there is like a disagreement about what are you trying to, but does it mean to like? Stand up for your rights. Does that mean a cosmopolitan inclusive, -tarian vision, or does it mean a nationalistic fish, but we should probably take a break, but there's something kind of latent in what you're saying that I. Think we want to make sense to bring to the fore about power. This is advertiser content. When I say utopia what comes to mind? Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the Pathak social body. Every everybody in that place. Everybody happy now. While the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more I introduced the theory five hundred years ago, but we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia, and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades and we're increasingly lonely, whereas in a utopia one belongs to everyone else. In nine hundred eighty forty-three psychologist Abraham maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms maslow's theory says that in a utopia we decide for ourselves what we need and how we're going to get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds pretty good right then. Why can't we make it happen? For a Utopian Society to work. We might need to disband some of the things we hold dearest marriage government privacy individualism, even family. See for yourself if a utopian world is as perfect as it seems watch, brave new world now streaming only on peacock. So Something that I. I was thinking about a little as we kind of prepared for this episode. Is that the original meaning of woke before it was used as a term via like people. Right of center, and far eight to deride. White Liberals had a certain connotation of being. Skeptical of Conventional Wisdom Skeptical of received wisdom in a way that. She could shade into conspiracy theory. It has like. Honestly, it had a lot more in common with the kind of wake-up sheep oil idea you see in in like white online spaces the people who used woke when I was growing up where the people who were kind of convinced that the government put Florida in the water to sterilize black men right that what that's what woke meant among certain communities that I grew up around like the thing about that is that yes, the substantive beliefs that are associated with that are is often as not just wild, just like wild stuff, but as a hurt like as a Herman of skepticism as don't believe everything you read, don't believe what they. They tell you like there's a certain appeal to that, and this is the way the conspiracy theories often work right. You say you're just asking questions. You say you're not going to take for granted. What people in power want you to believe? And you end up adopting a totally different set of dogma that is every bit as inflexible and rigid as anything that you know you were being asked to believe in the first place, but at a time when there's a lot more openness to talking about power, and who wields it in terms of the resurgence of the black lives, matter movement, and the broadening think in a lot of ways of. People's willingness to talk about systemic racism in particular stem oppression more broadly, it's not actually that surprising that people who have very robust theories of who has power and should be forced to give it up. That are wrong or conspiratorial or bigoted. See a new opportunity for themselves because they're seeing not just a greater openness to like accounts of how things got to be the way they are generally, but they're seeing. A willingness to talk about systems of oppression in a way that's going to sound very congenial to conspiracy theorists who have always believed that there is a deliberate Kabbalah people trying to keep them down why this is where I think we get to a sort of a tougher kind of problem I think we forgot at the top the show. Even say who nick, Ken is I think he is most prominently now. The host of the masks singer which I had not seen until. We're searching for this episode out. Like I was not super aware of what was going on here until like I saw one day on twitter at several different black writers, who I follow were sort of very very piously denouncing antisemitism, and like in a nonspecific way. They made me wonder what is going on here like what what's happening, so I asked in the Vox slack, and I think it was Jane explained it to me you don't. He was an interesting instinctive reaction Taryn are both Jewish and so. I would say that the response the writers follow was that was that this was a Shonda? Right didn't like they felt the need to speak up. Because they fell. A nobody was excellent, questioning like their Bona Fides, on the Jewish question but like they felt the need to distance themselves from this thing that was happening above third-tier black celebrities, but it's a on some level like. Not a big. Deal as far as I'm concerned like I saw some people. You know some white, cranky Jewish writers, being like come no one's Da but like. I like quick find Jews in America. You saw some like. Why is there less comment about nick cannon's comments about like some you know? Then then about. Some of the things that have been the NFL players like this is one of those where if the dude has lost, his has lost his job or suffered lake delivered employment consequences. That's that's the basic explanation for why. There isn't more condemnation of it. He likes one of his jobs, but not. For very actually, but so curious the issue right out. At, least American Jews are not so out objectively threatened that we particularly need to like stamp out expressions of anti Semitic views on the part of television, show, hosts but I. Find it like not good that people have those views, and so like I would actually like them to change their bind, and like in a weird way, a comprehensive campaign to like fully d platform that Canon and wreck. His livelihood would just confirm. The like. that. The Jews are pulling all the strings here. You know so like I I I prefer to have this show and like do things and try to get people to see that like this is not correct because I, don't i. don't actually feel like hyper vulnerable on this score like unless he's off television. You know I'm going to have a huge personal problem. It's just it's not. Right and it stems from the fact that like we've moved to some more sophisticated understandings of race and racism and bias in America. That in a weird way though I think has caused us to leave behind some like more simplistic ones that are also relevant, which is that like American Jews are not subject to structural or systemic disadvantage we are actually in material terms, a relatively privileged group of people with higher than average incomes educational attainment. Over representation in the media overrepresentation in the United States Senate you know a large amount of like objective community power, but we're still a numerically small minority of people who other people can say Shitty, mean things about or be biased toward, and like it can hurt are feeling like it's. It's just still bad, right? It's like old fashioned. I think John mcwhorter has proposed that we bring back the term prejudice to refer to this sort of. Going away meeting of racism, did you be just like interpersonal hostility and being shitty? Because like it is still a relevant consideration, right even though you couldn't like, drop some map and be like a high. Here's the systemic oppression of Jewish people in America like we're doing fine, but it's still just don't be an asshole I'm going to push back on that a little bit because I think that I think that the group Pro Astle. I think that the point is what we've seen. One of pieces that I'll drop in the show. Notes was writing about the conspiratorial kind of black anti Semitism that has had real impact specifically on Orthodox communities and Orthodox Jews in New York in the third quarter of two thousand nineteen last year. Hate crimes against Jewish people made up nearly half of hate crimes, complaints and you this was my piece was written in January in between December, twenty, third, twenty nineteen, and when I wrote the piece in January, their thirteen antisemitic attacks that took place in New York and so much of this is aimed at. Jews and Orthodox communities living in New York and so I. think that for people who are visibly Jewish. The iconography of this kind of anti-semitism is particularly dangerous and particularly harmful and I think that that's really important to remember, and especially because anytime I speak about this personally, only because I've written a lot about the dangerous foot facing Orthodox folks at every time I do so i. get emails like that. Always start out with I think all. All hate crimes are unacceptable, but the Orthodox communities are taking over my town. Slash School district, and you I eat. This woman emailed me last week, and I responded with you probably should've stopped at the butts, but the idea that you know the Orthodox victims. They're taking over our schools. This is why angry people are targeting them. It's not you know if it's a hate crime. It's only because Orthodox started it and so I think that these. These conspiracy theories, you know the the people who were responsible for the attacks in Jersey City last year, which resulted in the murder of four people at a Kosher supermarket. They were part of an extremist wing of the black Hebrew Israelites. Who again our group who believes that they are the actual descendants of the lost tribes of Israel and the Jewish? People are imposters, or as acolyte put. Negroes are the real Jews and they use terminology the. The calling Jewish people part of the synagogue of Satan, which interestingly is one of those moments which splash anti-semites and white nationalist anti-semites, all come together on really hating Jewish people. It's like terrible version of that two hands, clasping name, and so I think that this kind of anti-semitism. Yes, when you nick cannon is kind of our fourth tier black person, but at the same time this types of sentiments if it's if you're hearing it from. An Eagles wide receiver or former NBA players if you have really well known people really well known black figures, who were so excited to see Louis Farrakhan if people who are involved with the women's March have apparently a complete impossible instance cannot denounce Louis Farrakhan despite him, being racist, anti-semitic and homophobic. All at once. I think that that's the concern here. It's not necessarily who saying it's how pernicious this is. It's your when I talk about how evil anti-semitism is I. Get a lot of responses for like Oh, the Jews are making you say that. Not. As far as I know I have not yet received any messages from Assad telling me to say these things but I think that's why to me this is this is a giant problem. I think that there's a sense and we see this sometimes. When I talk about white nationalism or white supremacist, ideology is the idea of like Oh there aren't that many of them and they're only. They're only famous because you bring this up and you know that's not that big, but I'm like it. It is a pernicious and dangerous ideology that puts real people at risk and the victims in the case of Jersey City. You were Orthodox Jews in the kiss, the tree of life shooting, which was committed by kind of A. Right leaning White Supremacists, those folks were reform Jews, but the people who are victimized by this tend to be Jewish people who are practicing the religion and I think that there is a means by which some of these views they filter out and filter out and filter out, but they still turn a story of black uplift and to a story of anti-semitism anti-semitism with a real cost in a real body count so I don't. Don't think that those two things are necessarily in conflict right I think we're essentially talking about the problems of prejudice without power at least in the stomach sense, and like in the same way that you know prejudice in the hands of the powerful leads to like particular predictable outcomes, you can understand that there are some cases in which a prejudice that is held primarily by those without power is going to lead to some lake. Long tail issues you know conspiracy theories that are often held by people who are mentally ill like. Or people who are who are drawn to extremism or violence, like that's going to become a problem for like actual you know confrontation or incidences of violence or that kind of thing, not to say that they're not the people who are mentally ill have a propensity for violence by if you have kind of CO, morbidity is among people whose behavior becomes unpredictable. The idea that you're going to have something. Erupting interview is fairly obvious like there is a wildly disproportionate amount of anti. Anti Semitic graffiti in Washington DC to the actual lake, pulled views of the people, not just the people of DC, but the people of DC who would do graffiti, but they're all it takes is a few individuals who are extremely devoted to writing things about the Jews in Sharpie on bus stops, and so that's the kind of thing that you're talking about Jane. That is a way in which anti Semitism can manifest. It's extremely harmful to choose even if it's not primarily even. Being held. Like resulting in. Generations long wealth gaps that kind of thing. The other problem here is the. Relationship between specifically white nationalism and antisemitism, and that's Matt when you were talking about the reaction of you know a lot of like black writers being that this is a Shonda that's immediately where I thought because so much of the reaction among the black intelligentsia. was you know the kind of the like Oh let's you know. We need to be extremely proactive and pious and denouncing. This wasn't a Ono. People will think we're antisemites. If we say best, it was hey. Please think twice about putting forward a narrative that the Jews control things because the other people who are super devoted to believing that the Jews control. Our K. K. and David Duke tape. Folks who don't particularly love either and so the idea that giving into these explanations of Oh other people are the Jews in particular other people in general are trying to keep us down is going to ultimately empower people who would like you to be annihilated as well is I think the other thing going on here? White nationalism currently exists in this weird space where it's most explicit. Proponents are marginalized, but. As a movement, it is widely understood to be gaining power and expressing influence in ways that you don't usually see extremist movements you know expressing not getting the widespread, the lake, wholehearted condemnation of the president of the United States for example, and even though it's still acting in some ways like a prejudice without power, and has that kind of Easily v kind of. Of easily shading into violence of people who don't have any other, you know quote, unquote legitimate way to express their views. There's definitely a concern that anything that would be seen as playing into their that narrative of how the world works is going to give even more power to a movement. That's already gaining ground exactly and I. Think it's worth saying that like. These types of Beliefs are I just keep thinking about the experiences of African American Jews whether or not there Paean Jews who were able to emigrate Israel, and perhaps the United States or African American Jewish people with no type Israel whatsoever, one of the most harmful attributes of this kind of Anti Semitism is that it attempts in some ways to shove Jews out of the black community a which I think that that's so deeply harmful and dangerous, and it's so. You know I. Think it's so. I keep going back to how Part of this is the nature of conspiracy theories on one of the people who defended to Sean Jackson. The Eagles player Steven Jackson who for people may know now a lot for being a good friend of George, Floyd speaking out about his death and Steven Jackson Sanyo. He's just he just speaking the truth, the facts that he knows entrust educate others, and he goes on to your the rothschilds. Are they own all the banks? I haven't said one thing. That's untrue yet. which like you know besides all of what you just said sure, but I think that it's interesting. Because some of the specifics of these conspiracy theories it actually to me is just as pernicious as a cue on where people are referencing the same bit players whether it's the here, the rothschilds or for human on JFK, junior who they believe is somehow. And so it's this language of people speaking to one another, and because of this self sealing mechanism of conspiracy theories. It's this idea that you know the only reason people are speaking out against. This is because they're trying to shut them up the rapper ice cube who's been revealed to be tremendously antisemitic when Kareem abdul-jabbar spoke out against anti-semitism saying that this anti Semitism was getting in the way of fighting racism. There's a means of standing up against prejudice altogether ice cube, essentially saying who paid you. Essentially calling him a Judas figure like you know. How much silver did you receive to say this as idea? That gets fair to say as a general life tip that if you find yourself in the position of having to of trying to attack, Kareem, abdul-jabbar you should sit down and reconsider your life essay. Guy Hooked over you immorally, but this idea of this these conspiracy theories that any means of trying to break conspiracy theories proof of the theory itself. It's why conspiracy theories are so dangerous, and why they are so pernicious, or why anti-semitism, as a conspiracy theory is so very violent and dangerous to so many people. You know if you read a recent interview in new. York magazine that Eric Levitz did with David shore he's. Not About Semitism he talks about racism, but it is in a separate section of it. Saying, he's just saying. Is that there? People who have a more zero view of the world, and there are people who have a more positive view of the world, and this tends to correlate with educational attainment, and has increasingly begun to stratified by. Partisan lines right and one thing that you have in the United States is cross cutting. Issues about about race, so you have. Eighty five ninety percent of African Americans Voting for Democrats even though a lot of African American people are working class have lower levels of educational attainment and have some of the same, I don't like personality attributes of working class white people, but working class white people are often inflicted with anti black racism, at which working class by people are not but a similar enjoyment of zero sum world views, and the idea that if something is bad, there must be someone who is specifically benefiting in an offsetting way is a sort of a powerful global concept. Right, so you have like the big thing in in India migrant thinking. Thinking I is that obviously many people who move to the United States benefit enormously from doing so that's really clear and everybody agrees on it, so one group of people has just default assumption that if that's true, then there must be commensurate losses right that somebody's incurring, and the suspicion is that you are the one who is losing, and then the other like the cosmopolitan worldview that just comes so naturally to me isn't like this is beneficial that people who move from Haiti to New York can increase their incomes sixfold. That's going to be good, not just for the Haitian people before the borough divide that like. These talents are being developed. Everybody has more opportunity to buy things. Everyone has a better chance of becoming a great inventor or discoverer of things, and that all kinds of like structures of oppression are actually back. Right like even if some individual people somewhere may derive benefits from them that link in a global sense, it's not just morally wrong or exploitative, but like it is, it is actually bad for the world to have people in a state of repression but that's not a universal like diagnosis of the human condition. There is a lot of group versus group thinking among all kinds of people fortunately. That didn't have trouble collaborating with each other. So, it's like possible to defeat them in concrete political contexts, but I just I feel like that's a lot of what you see in this kind of thing that it's like obviously at the state. Like the living conditions of certain racial groups in the United States of America are like not what they should be right, and so then there's a suspicion that like well. That must be because some puppet master is is benefiting from this situation rather than it just being bad. Right I think that that. Idea of attempting to find a responsible party for why things are bad, I think the nature of conspiracy theories is that you have a victim and you have a perpetrator, whereas in actual life as anyone knows sometimes both sometimes, you're neither sometimes things happen that don't make sense, but it's interesting. There was a piece earlier this week on last week tonight. The HBO show with John Oliver where he goes into a little bit of the research that I've talked about as well is that there are a lot of conspiracy theories around say the JFK assassination, but. But no conspiracy theories around the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, which is essentially relax. The Guy who did it was trying to impress Jodi foster and Ron Reagan survived, and we all relatively moved on with the exception of the injuries suffered by secret service agent involved in this, but because you conspiracy theories tend to Mesh on two specific instances that are truly horrific you're. There are nine eleven conspiracy theories, and there are conspiracy theories around the moon landing, which Ma obviously not horrific instance, but something that for many people seemed in some ways unbelievable, so it's. In some ways conspiracy theories are means a flattening. There are means by which we can make sense of things. We don't understand how it happened whether for good or for ill and so. In kind of the black anti-semitism. There is a sense of how could these? How could this happen to millions of people? How could slavery have happened? How could Jim Crow have happened? How could the horrors of the hundreds of lynchings that took place from the end of the civil war until the early nineteen eighty s have happened, and rather than believe in Canada the standing of systemic racism, which can be committed by people who have no claim to it, and doing it in a dastardly means, but are just merely part of a system that continues to pervade it. There's like. Like, no, we have. There's entity and they did it. It was just this entity, and if we can just blame this entity, use it as a scapegoat than that that makes it makes sense, and we can lift ourselves up by putting down this other entity answer I think that that's one of the things how combat comes back to this idea of an attempt to create a world view in which the horrors of what may have happened or something happening that doesn't make any sense is the responsibility of a singular party and a singular entity with a name and a face. Do! Break do white paper yeah okay. We've all been you go to a company's website. You type in a pretty basic question, their search, and then you. You get nothing.

Today do employment programs work evidence from the deal by Anna Shari, Eli Yvonne Years Mooney and Kion Lee. They are looking at a rich is a cool administrative data thing, so they're looking at the civilian conservation corps, which is a kind of famous new deal program. It did stuff that it frankly sounds nutty. By the Modern Day they like took young people, and they sent them to army-supervised work to him up. To army-supervised work camps in rural areas. You read about the details of this program and you think this is the kind of thing that is remembered nostalgically in like American historical memory, but not only with conservatives like lose their shit at this level of spending under. The? Progressives would also lose their shit. If you propose this right like in order to be enrolled in the program, you had to agree that twenty. Five of the thirty dollars you earned each month would be sent to a family member back home like there would be so many concerns about this. You know increasing. Like abusive situations, and that sort of thing, yeah, and so I don't know it's weird, so I'm I'm in Maine I went to Acadia National Park at. They had these like C. C. Labor camp, kids. They like dopes, a lot of the infrastructure national park. It all seems totally bizarre but at any rate. Question is like okay. Did this accomplish anything? Obviously, it was short term Economic Woodley. These people who were in the program got food. They got money. Their families got money in the modern day. I think we would achieve DIRECTV relief during recession by things like expanding food stamp eligibility. Or the bonus unemployment insurance I mean we have these things going on now and it's it's a basic tension between conservatives. Don't like spending money and progressives like the welfare state. CCC was this like other way of doing it but then the question is like what was the impact on the people and they show that there were lots of some surprisingly long term benefits that if you look in the short term, the benefits seem. Seem pretty modest although you know better than having no income, but over the longer term you have a greatly improved life, expectancy and CCC enroll ease as well as moderately higher like proclivity to enroll in the military during world. War Two moderately higher educational attainment, all kinds of just sort of broad term increases in in life trajectory, and then they compare this to a nineteen nineties program called Job Corps that was of. Loosely modelled on CCC and say that you can see some of the same benefits there, but then they argue that kind of like short-term our C. T. designs don't capture the full potential upside of something like this. It's weird, because like they say like is like okay, do you? The job programs work? Which I think would most people say something like you know instead of spending all this money on incarceration. We should have used job programs that this is not what they in mind. I mean I haven't. I haven't right here? No. Sunday, but if it's like it right, they're not picking sending. Like, instead of prison to remote labor camp from. I don't know. It's fascinating Ken Burns kick recently, and we watched the series that's on the dust bowl, which gets into this a little bit because I was inexperienced that the climactic impact of the dust bowl is just astronomical, and people should read more about it, but one of the things get sent you. I was particularly interested in the information about getting taller and living longer lives than we've seen some very stupid names recently about how like Peo- people in the nineteen forties much stronger and healthier, the are now. That is one hundred percent, not true. True and especially because I think that the people who are able to be involved in these programs that were responsible for building roads in our national parks, responsible for collecting a slave narratives for example and recording them. It's how all encompassing this program was. It's fascinating because this paper is a comprehensive assessment, but the CCC was truly comprehensive, and it was something where you would. There were people one of the Ken Burns has also a documentary series on national parks and one of the people interviewed about this really. Boring loved it. It's beautiful and we WANNA by ansel Adams photography, but one of the things he goes into. It's talking about how people were sending their kids because they're like I feed you. We have no money whatsoever. We cannot feed you and these young boys essentially teens who were saying these the first time. I've had three square meals, even that concept in their lives. If you were born in, say nineteen, twenty, nine, twenty one, and you're going into the sea C in Nineteen thirty, four, nineteen, thirty, five fourteen fifteen years old, and this is the. The first time you've had good food and you're doing out a lot of outdoor work. You are helping to construct or reconstruct a lot of the facilities that we've only recently started rehab, but it. It really is a program that I think that because it was in response to such a cataclysmic event that was the Great Depression and especially out west, the dust bowl, which kind of added onto the problems of that I think that this in response was an equally comprehensive effort to undo some of the effects of the grades pre. Interesting question here though and like. To the author's credit, they're not saying like we can prove that. Youth job programs work because of the particular characteristics of the CCC Lake they do take their results and look at existing data sets of like more modern job, corps programs, and so there is a certain there. There is some validity to the idea that you don't have to take kids and put them in a remote labor camp in order to or like kids, young adults, but what was particularly interesting about this like the long term, health outcomes are much more apparent from the. The data collected then the short term employment outcomes. If you not not obviously once you're in the if you're employed by the, CCC, yes, you're employed, but in the years immediately after that and you know if you look at like the nineteen forty census people who had graduated from the CCC in the last couple of years were not necessarily more likely to be employed at. That's what we think of generally when we think about the utility of job programs and the idea that it is worthwhile to do something that won't increase youth employment. Necessarily won't won't give you immediately better standing in the job market, but might improve your long term. Health outcomes and income earning potential is just not a time horizon that policy, not just the policy today made based on, but like if you had told FDR Hey in by signing the CCC into law, which by the way program created by executive order thing I did not know boggles the mind. But, if you had told FDR like by doing this, you're not actually going to make these young men more appeal in more employable or. Give them or making them earn more money in the next few years. You're just going to make it possible for them to grow taller and live longer i. don't know that they necessarily that he have. Signed that into law. Yeah, I mean it's A. It's a bit of a weird one, but. I. Do think it's worth taking. Right not just an economic classes, but to say you know give certain number of people. They're sixteen seventeen years old, and they are not that good at school, and they don't really like it, and if you say to them like what you really ought to do is work harder for the next eighteen months, and then go do more years of school, and they're like like really don't want. Want to do that or they're nineteen twenty years old and they haven't gone to college, or they've dropped at high school, and because the United States is an affluent society, they're not like immediately faced with starvation as a result of that, they have other family members. They have maybe little hustles can get into. They can live in their mom's basement like you could get by right, but I think. For the same kinds of reasons that like mainstream bourgeois Americans encourage teenagers to go to college. It sort of makes sense to encourage teenagers who don't want to go to college to like. Do something right and like something. That's outdoorsy. And involves physical labor rather than doing problems sets like. That could be good to write like people like tastes differ right, and I think the idea that like older teens should have some kind of structured activity in their life at the older I get and. Deeper into the dead zone I get know makes. Sense to me all this is all deeply dad, this is. This is all a lot of character building and. Asking people to cut down their own Chris, but that's what I'm saying. Go work in the countryside and build a national park all right. Or start a podcast okay. Sure appropriately socially distant do. Honestly they're really. There are worse model towards a pandemic jobs program where masks swing an axe. It's going to be great Okay, thanks, guys. Thanks as always to our sponsors.

A Smith and how the black community is turning on him and his views against Colin capital for the twenty minute morning. Show November the twenty. We are broadcasting live from university city.

Catholics people which I find very interesting Max Kellerman because I had heard from them all the time I have tech spanning two months plus from Colin Kaepernick's people but the day leading up to the workout in the immediate aftermath of the workout. I haven't heard from a soul. That's point number two point number three when I sit up there and I said he'd yesterday here we go and I spoke about how his points are radically.

That means that you respect yourself so much. You won't allow people to disrespect you. But I what did go into the logic of wide. Stephen a Smith is doing what he's doing. Have you ever heard of neely fuller. I WANNA play this video.

That's this man right here whether you like them on night. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is the boldest most fearless black man on the planet and what Colin Kaepernick is doing is walking in the footsteps of the great ones. Because what because I love Black Peop- how much do you love black people. Are you willing to give up money. Are you willing to give up Feng Camera Time Fortune and order to help your people to Z.. That we are not free. We're still under the Lash and the whip and under the control a white folks and we got Negroes is like this they wanna get in the way. This is what Steven Naismith is turning into brother. You gotTA chains before. It's too late Stephen. A you're going in the wrong direction. Stephen a Smith is going to be on the wrong side of history when this is all said and done. Here's a tweet era greed from the Carolina Panthers put out today and you know he put a really funny Tweet the other day of daffy duck tap dancing for white folks and he says tap tap tap tap tap. Your feet hurt yet. Talking about Stephen a Smith breath so listen. Stephen Smith is a brilliant broadcaster. He knows how to get ratings. That's assist thing. He knows how to give ratings knows how to steer up the crowd that's why. ESPN is paying him. Uh Ten million dollars. I think it's eight to ten million dollars just signed a new contract. The man knows what he's doing on radio and on television. He gets paid to do that but he's walking down a road that has gotten him in trouble because he don't WanNa go out away because you don't want to lose his paycheck and for those of us who have set in offices of white folks and they they had a private meeting with you if you love your people Utah Black on any media and they make you a A offer that some of you can't reviews. I can tell you a story about how had until I had to make a decision because this man asked me look the you wanna eat with the masses or do you want to eat with the classes you said. Make your choice and I walked out of that room knowing that I had to make a decision what it was. I had automated decision while I was sitting there. I'm eating with the masses of my people. I don't want to be in the class. And so a few months later I was let go from an opportunity the most money ever made in my life and my wife could tell you the whole story. I said to many black men like me. There were give up money for principal so the one thing about me. I never left that job even though they fired me. I didn't leave that job with my tail between my legs. I left as a free black man. Black man broke forbid good but hey look now get up every day. I do what I WANNA do. I talked to a WanNa talk to stay as long as I wanNA stay. I go where I WANNA go. I get up I control my whole day. I don't make as much money as I used to make. But I'm walking in the footsteps of Free Black People and I wouldn't trade this position for no amount of money so we want to talk about that today. What does it take to be free?

And I just got reminded about where I am on the priority list. Is van you gotta you gotta adapt. Sometimes man, we're not there yet we building. But we're not there yet to where I can walk in and go get outta here today on the podcast. We have brother Reza's Lomb. He is a member of the nation of Islam. He is a young man who is making his way up and through the media channels and circles as a spokesperson as a sort of advocate and ambassador for the nation and its ways if you're not familiar with the nation of Islam, it is a group started by the honorable Elijah Muhammad that since its inception has been at the forefront of. Teaching and educating black Americans on ways that they can access their power built their community and solve some of the social ills that sort of have played the black community. The members of the nation of Islam include guys like, of course, Malcolm X, the honorable minister Louis Farrakhan, who is the ultimate spokesperson and leader of the nation of Islam and early on in his religious conversion, of course, Mohammed Ali now. There are a couple of controversial points and ideas at the nation has and these things have been widely played out in the media and their questions that people that want to love each other. But also, a what to work with the nation of Islam would have of them. And I have those questions when you listen to this interview, you're going to hear me talk to brother reason within a finicky for the nation. And the reason why I have that affinity is because of personal relationships. I've had two men who seemed irredeemable who upon joining the nation of Islam completely changed their disciplined the way that they viewed black women to the way that they've you'd their community the way they viewed themselves seemed to completely change once they. Became members of the nation. Having said that there are issues. Disagreements that I have with the nation of Islam there are disagreements fundamental disagreements that I have with some of what the perceived views of the nation of Islam are. And the reason why I brought brother Reza in here was to ask those questions of him. He does not run from any of those questions as the result to as they relate to should. I say the nation of Islam's views on Jewish people the nation of Islam's views on the LGBT community. I asked him very directly about both of those things and he spoke about them, and I'll leave it up to the audience to to decide whether or not the answers, and the be questions even were sufficient enough as black Americans as people not even black Americans as people that love freedom inequality. We have to ask ourselves which groups do we want to work with in order to achieve that goal. Now. The nation has always been there for the call of black people always never one time has a nation failed. Black america. With the nation preaches in terms of responsibility for yourself, and for your community responsibility. For your women in your children to black men, specifically has always been. An unbelievable unbelievable useful. And. In a lightning an informative message for gentleman who looked like me. But there are questions the questions are how do I l g b t brothers and sisters fit into that. How do people that are non black that we want to coalition coalition Bill with fit into that? I asked brother reason these questions he gave me some answers, not all of those answers to be quite honest with you in this podcast are going to make people feel good is a religious organization, and there's doctrine involved in some of these things it's very important that people know that. Despite the fact that I agree with the nation on a great many things, despite the fact that I agree with the nation in terms of the way, black Americans and really people that haven't had access to. American freedom should coalition build I believe in the complete empowerment. The complete freedom of everyone to be gay to express themselves to express their love to express their their gender express themselves in any way that they want. And as long as I have breath in my lungs, I'll work to empower those people our to empower those people because they also just like the nation LGBT Americans LGBT black Americans have always been there for our community whenever we have called on them. They have always been out front. They have always been willing to put their safety and their identity on the line for us and as a black as a black community. I'm not so sure that we can say the same thing for them. I'm not so sure that we can say that we've always been there for the LGBT members of our community, and we have to start doing that. Now. We have to start empowering, and including them now. Not in the past. Now, it has to happen. Now. Whatever it is that you believe whatever got that you worship you have to embrace empower prop up hug and love. The LGBT com. They'll GB community wherever you are. I'm not just saying this because I have people in my family that are in close proximity to me that are from that community. My sister. I've spoken about it. Many times lesbian. I'm saying that because. These people black. These people are part of this entire thing that we're doing these people forget about them being black. They're human. Because it's not just the black members of the community. They deserve our love and protection they deserve an opportunity and a right to go about their lives as openly honestly and freely and without any sort of oppression at all. And they owe we owe it to them to protect that. So if you care about people living their best lives on this planet. They have to care about everyone. And especially the people that are willing to to to to come to the call for you. Now, the reason why I say this will not the reason why I say this, but I wanna point out. A situation that just came across my desk. A kid by the name of Nigel Shelby Nigel Shelby. As a gentleman is a young man who is no longer with us. Eighteen years old die by suicide last week. He was a freshman at Huntsville high school in Huntsville, Alabama now Nigel who's in the ninth grade. Took his own life because he could not take the homophobic bullying. That he was receiving apparently from his classmates or people in this community as that's what I'm to understand operates several stories about this. This is something that was made. Aware to me glass week. Now, I would ask anyone out there. Beyond the conversation of any specific group or. Is Pacific feeling that you might have do you want to be a part of the hate machine that causes a freshman in high school to commit suicide? A child. Someone with so much life in front of them with so much joy in front of them with so much useful pain in front of them. Do you want to be a part of what makes that child decide that they can no longer live on planet earth? It's a very very simple question. It's a incredibly central simple, but central question because you don't have to be. You can choose not to be a part of a hate machine that would cause a kid to kill themselves. And the way that you can choose to do that is simply to allow people to love the way they want to love despite how it makes you feel. Despite what you think about it. Empower someone else to love how they wanna love empower someone else to dress. How they want address empowers someone else to do whatever it is that they want to do in the life that they've been granted. But understand that if you make the opposite choice. If you choose to access that hate machine, but there are consequences. Maybe not to you what to others. And is that what you want? Can you look at yourself in the mirror hoping to be a good person hoping to be someone who wants a better world? But at the same time only one it for people who you can approve of who they sleep with. To me. It's an easy. Call. To me. It's an easy. Call to me. I look at stories like Nigel's and stories like that that have happened all over the country and all over the world. And I say now that's not who I wanna be. I wanna be the guy who continues to try to create a world to try to create a society where everyone feels empowered to live love dress and act the way they want to because it's not hurting you. As much as you try to create the monster in your head that everybody is going to tell you. It's not hurting you has nothing to do with you. You just don't like it. Because you've been taught and socialized to not like it. Somebody else got a die. Because you've been taught and socialize not to like it. Someone else has to have a short lifespan someone else has to hide who they are. So what else has to have anxiety, and depression and all different types of disorders because of your era Gance because of your intolerance. And because of the fact that you can't live with someone else living exactly the way they want to. All right. Now. This is not to say that anything that we discussed in this particular podcasts. Meets that standard. What's again? This is not in any way to. Throwing shade on brother reason, this is to say that what I know the nation. Who has been very instrumental here in Los Angeles since the passing of our brother, nipsy hustle and securing and keeping the peace in speaking. And making sure that the community is able to heal is that what the nation has demands of of me as a black, man. And I am empowered by these brothers to tell them that. I have some demands of them too. I still despite the disagreements that I might have. Want to work with the nation of Islam to continue to not only Volve mile mind as a black man, but maybe even their minds. As leaders in the community. We need more inclusion we need to be able to work together a little bit more and. I think that what you listen to this podcast. You'll see that brother Reza comes in peace, and he comes in love. But he or no one innocent tire situation is perfect. Nobody. So if you feel yourself being triggered by some of the things they're saying this interview, and there some specific things that jump out at me. I get that. But at the same time. Well, we have to do is have conversations until everyone understands just how dire this is just how serious this is an everyone's individual life. The nation of Islam has said or brother reasons said on this podcast that they roundly reject anti-semitism, which has been a something that the nation in in particular minister Farrakhan has been accused of he has said he said on this podcast that the nation. Doesn't have a problem with LGBT people or the LB L P LGBT community. Although there are some troubling things some ideas and the ad they put forth they made him went back and forth on. But I can have this conversation with anyone from any religious arena, and it would sound the same. If I had this conversation with some of my homeboys back in Baton Rouge that are that are devout Christians that are devout from any other from many, many other religions shot saying. Some of the intolerance that. Sort of I is directed at the LGBT community comes from religious doctrine, and we can't run away from that. But we do have to do is confronted discuss it and find a way. Either we're dealing with the nation who has unbelievably beautiful ideas on community building or how we should eat on. How should think on how we should live? We have to combine those things with the empowerment of all black people. Of all marginalized people of all people period. We'll just get to choose some. Everybody's gotta come. Everybody has got to be allowed access and freedom everyone or it doesn't work. I appreciate brother reason for coming by appreciate the nation for always being there when I had questions about what they're going to do and how they're going to. Sort of protect and uplift the black community by the reasons said on this podcast that he was four Justice and freedom for all people. And I believe that he is. But. In order to have that we're going to have to protect all people. We're going to have to protect all people. And our brothers and sisters in the L T community need our protection. As much if not more than anyone while we fighting. We gotta whole hands and fight with them to once again. Thank you too, brother Reza. You guys are going to learn a lot in this podcast trying to keep up with this, man. He is redecked uselessly intelligent. If you're sitting down in front of a of a member of the nation of Islam bring your thinking cap and be ready to question everything that you thought be ready to question and attack some of the things that they think, but whatever you do don't allows for second because they educate. All right, pop some pills. Let's get into it. Why people in the room? Okay. All right. Why been room I hope that you guys have your think claps on today? Did you guys are ready for the unadulterated clap right now for reasons? Yes, religion is now I can't you know, you from the platform that you have your ever expanding platform. Yes. Feel like your reach is increasing. And I saw the brilliant time that you spent with Nick cannon on Kennedy class, which was very very enlightening for all of us. I think there are a lot of things I will like to talk to you about absolutely one being the black communities relationship. First of all, why don't you explain to the people that are listening to the repeal right now who you are. Yes. I will. I brother once again, I'm honored. It'd be on rep here. My brother van ladened TMZ never thought. I'd be on this side. My name is where the reasons slum. I am a activists humanitarian speaker independent research and just a brother in the community. I've been doing this since I was about twelve years old. And of course, a Representative on behalf of minister Farrakhan, and the nation of Islam, and of course, a member f ally soldier in the nation of Islam. So a lot of lot of fancy little things to basically sound just a brother doing my best to help the people pretty much now. Part of this conversation is going to talk about the I'm going to ask you first of all, yes. A bunch of different ways that you feel like the advancement of black Americans the advancement of black people everywhere your views on that. What you believe is the correct blueprint to spiritual even healthwise. Oh, yeah. Spiritual emotional immensely sort of advancement and Evelyn of black people. And also we're gonna talk a little bit about. The relationship now between the nation of Islam and the black community absolute and the ever changing ideas inside the black community, and how that kind of jobs with the nation of Islam. I won't you tell me kind of what? A lot of us come from a generation where we understood the relationship between the nation between what you guys have and the community. But it seems like as we get further away from that. It's starting to get stranded a little bit explained to me, exactly what your platform is what you want for black Americans. Absolutely first thing. Freedom Justice and equality. That's a number one goal period point blank and simple. And what we mean by that is we mean a just and fair equitable relationship with all of our people are universal government where in all can live in peace. That's the ultimate goal number one for black people because I'm a black man in America. And we need to be resurrected mentally spiritually economically agriculturally in every way possible. And my platform how I use it as an independent researcher one to help to kind of get rid of the lies that the enemy puts out to segregate people black white and in between to divide people black wanting between to put out a lot of. Negative information about people that doesn't actually exist to pretty much get every single person snatched into this ever rotating wheel of no progress. Okay. So I kind of go in and just drop the truth. Boom. This is what's really going on? Here's the facts. Boom. Let's move on. Okay. Good. So thank you for that guys. Good. Now, let's get back on you know, progresses. Get back on liberation. Let's get back on actually doing something progressive for each other. And for ourselves as a people. That's the major thing that is behind my platform. And of course, being a Representative minister Farrakhan being on platform, such as this to Connex spell the lies get rid of what people have been saying about. Of course, we know all the major topics would it comes at a nation. Okay. So we we we're gonna to go just just we're gonna go just so people know exactly what the truth is. They got to get the facts. Now, the the the reality is. If you follow any of the edicts or the teachings of the nation of Islam on the honorable lodge Muhammed, I myself, I'm a Christian. However. I want to get away from this sort of mandate that you have to agree with everything else. You're in total war with someone that is working on behalf of your community. Exactly. And so we wanna make sure that somebody's myths are dispelled and some of these things are explaining to people that might have some misinformation about how long have you been with the nation. I was born in nation actually in California. Mosque number fifty four location, and I was active from when I was born up until about the age of five or six and my stepfather who was who brought us into the nation when he was arrested the family collapsed for an air game. Banging people started doing that drugs. You name it collapsed, and I wasn't active again until I say about the age of twenty three maybe twenty four so I had a huge gap. So during during that gap, what was going on with you a lot of things, man. I I myself was involved in, you know, not not too much criminality because I was very young. But the game banging was real didn't really do to too many drugs. Didn't yo lo we'd here? I'm all here. You know, we all been through. And that is. Real. We just like film heaven put on both time head pieces. I know you, but you really must lie being 'cause you aborted state Niagara bra number one pile on the planet, I won't compete. Listen now, listen, I know I know what was it sweet potato sweet potato. Okay. Yeah. Stay reasons in here already right now trying to push this being pioneered. Now, we're gonna do the facts. Taste health, brother. Listen, let's sweet potatoes decent. But these navy beans. Black man, I'm paying over eighty nutrients. Copper Magne's Magni anti radiation. Anti-aging? I gotta go. We know what we will come back because I'm going to rinse lies because we gotta do the being pop potato Postles got. We gotta do it. God do it. All right. So so back to the nation when you whether you only twenty nine now between yesterday. Congratulations on that always another. It's been around the galaxy. Yes, around the earth is is is is a is worth noting. So yes, so you basically you've come in and your your star is rising pretty fast when you got serious and more involved in the nation. What was it you're in what capacity she I'll say, the the main thing is when I re established my connection and the nation. It was at a height where police shootings were extremely prevalent. Of course every day the game banging started to become extremely exacerbated irritated. Someone was festering. And kind of, you know, reestablish more of this once a died down from an somebody was sparked that flame again, and it wasn't just gained. Because there was some agent activity provocateur, but you'd be. The behavior. So these things started to make me realize, okay? Something needs to happen. And when I became active in the nation. It was at the height of that. It was also the height of the California Bill SP two seven seven which was taking away the religious exemption for mandatory vaccination where it was forcing. Parents right now to vaccinate your child or they can't go to public private or daycare public school private school or daycare, or we'll take your child away put you in jail cetera. Right. All of these things were happening all at once. And that is what made me say hold on. I need to get more involved and do something about this. And that's something that kind of pushed me more into that heavy on national in the international platform because as a result. That's one me myself on behalf of minutes, Tony administered Narcan went with snoop Dogg the game. And we went and met with the LAPD. I remember that reestablish a truce two thousand sixteen after that we have what is called the United hood nations where we literally came under the same roof over three thousand people most of them are outside, of course. But it was bloods, Crips nation of Islam, Christian churches, more signs temp. The Black Panther party new Black Panther party. Most of these organizations that you would never see under the same roof, religious conscious, etc. Came together to reestablish on Theresa the gang truce that was a nineteen ninety two the treaty and also to establish the United Nations where we have from that point up until now been providing jobs for people who have felonies who couldn't get a job credit repair literacy programs, food, clothing, etc. So it wasn't just a movement where we call a truce between the bloods, Crips and LAPD. It was a movement to really push the solution oriented side of it to where we would provide the solution which caused the problem in the first place. If you give a job, you won't have gang activity, you give literacy won't have gang activity at cetera et cetera. And this is where my affinity from the nation of for the nation of his on comes. Yes. Building comprehensive members of society and attacking the issues that play black Americans from every single facet apps. Flute from what it is that you put in your head from what it is that you eat for the treatment of your women. Yes. From the discipline that you show yourself for the reverence that you have for the people in your community as law. I've always had a had a brother or excuse me. A it's like a brother cousin deal with the nation very very early on. And even though we are holy rolling Christian. Oh, yeah. Bible thumping? My dad would be like I'm gonna lie, man. Farrakhan got that boy, stay up straight. Hey. You mentioned earlier the enemy that means to separate us. Yes. Who is this enemy number one will be the system of white supremacy established by the elders ancestors who are Caucasian. Uh-huh. That's the number one. Which is the system is a system is not all white people. But it is a system that was established currently being perpetuated by black Brown red yellow and white, but it was established primarily by Caucasian early on the number one enemy as we were telling the nation of Islam is ignorance right number one. And of course, this system of white supremacy, which is perpetuating the we are superior you are inferior. And we must succeed by having you beneath us, and that is everybody, but once again is being perpetuated, not only by white people because a lot of white people are suffering to it's black Brown red yellow perpetuating this system of I'm list destroy you in order for me to succeed. I become healthier when you are sick. I'm more intelligent when you are dumb. I am doing greater when you are doing worse or you're not in a good position. And makes me be a higher position. That's the. System. That's now infecting a lot of people across his planet. And that is something that we must destroy do the people that are perpetuating this system know that they're doing it. Most of them don't most of the noise. A matter of fact, to be very very very very very specific those who are in control because we have the system you have the ignorance it cetera. But you have those who actually control at the very top, which we are going to the international bankers. Okay. These are that small which is very small group. He does not all white does not even a majority. It's a very small group of international bankers who control the money system who control the media who control the majority of all of this to keep the people fighting among one another because if we all come together, and we realized who the true enemy is then we will be able to unite come together and do something far selves as people do things in a unified manner. It's cetera. That's that's the ultimate, you know, who's actually in control running all of this. Now a lot of to make Mallory. I'm sure you're familiar. Yes. To make him. We all have to make a little. People of all races and backgrounds. You love to make him out because she's fantastic work absolute she has been under attack just recently by people who say that her. She was savior's day. Yes, she came to save, and she stood there and took a picture with Farrakhan. I believe last year last year, and that was used to paint her as an anti Semite. Yes. Because there are some people who believe that the nation deals in antisemitism. Right. Okay. So that has that has been a narrative that has been used against to make in order to marginalize her influence. Yes. And her sort of the mission to get all women the rights that they need and deserve. Yes. Correct. Two things. What did you think about that situation? And what is straight up the nation of Islam's? Thoughts on Jewish people and people who are members of the Jewish faith. Absolutely number one. I'll say this. If anyone wants to refer to do because the difference between Jew, and as a difference between Jewish the Jew is one of the original ethnic background. You're referring to African original people. Okay. That's ju- dark black skin person. Okay. Or israelite? You want to go into that area? You dealing with original people. So we are the true Jews Kate in the bible, and the Torah Old Testament, etc. Wherever you want to go where the true, juice. Okay. So that's so when we can't be anti semitic because I can't be anti myself. All right. That's that's number one number two. How we feel about the situation to Mallory is every single person who has sided with minister Farrakhan. Which by the way, it doesn't mean you side with everything we agree with as you were saying earlier doesn't mean that it means you side with truth wherever that comes from. If a white man says, something that's true. I have to agree with it. Okay. Well, that's actually true. It doesn't. I don't care about your skin color. What you said was true. And then he's being knowledged as that for now. If minister far con- who is the last black leader that you can say we have who is a one hundred percent just for the universal liberation of the people where if you black white et cetera who will not capitulate who has not been bought out who you cannot get him to do something that goes against the integrity of his people. He is the last one is he the only black leader. No. But is he the ultimate number one living today who has who is at his age doing this and has been doing over sixty years. Yes. He is that one when you decide to stand with him. You will be attacked. This is known. This has been well known anyone who researches his history. It's caught the far con- litmus test. They used to make fun of it. And do skits about an on in living color where they will say. Yeah. In order for the man to meet the man, you gotta denounce far con-, you know, did they push with Obama Hillary Clinton? Do you denounce far Condie denounce him denounce? Why is there so much attention on denouncing his main because he's anti semitic. No. He's not he's anti evil anti wickedness all of this. And that includes from black people he hates when. Black man kills another black man and he bought away we get at the worst. Just so, you know, when he talks about injustice, etc. We get it. The worst say we okay, he comes at us. More fire like you need to get your stuff together. It stop killing your own brother. I'm literally we get a worse than believe it or not. Then why folk get it? Because I I'm aware of that like when when when the minister preaches and talks about relaxed me Bill responsibility, like lay raise your game, be worthy of your other worthy of all of these things the responsibility for your communities and your without a doubt. Whether so so that's the first thing. So it's like, no, no, no, no. It's not about none of this anti semitic. That is a lie that they use because they do not want the people to listen to the truth that is coming from that man's mouth. And they do not want the people here him they shut down the amend March as far as being able to get out on multiple media networks. Ten ten fifteen two thousand fifteen they shut down a lot of the media networks, they sent out an EMP shutdown phones etcetera. I was there did the same thing for years prior to that they did Sam. At the original one. They do not want the people to hear the truth, and it's not just from him from anybody. But he is the one what that ultimate truth that everyone needs to hear. So by painting, someone as an anti Semite it will destroy their influence to make a Mallory whoever stands with whoever even says, hey, I agree with the fact that he said being pies good seriously crazy, which is agreed on a it's a pastry. I mean, it's it's really it becomes it becomes quite childish and also questionable. What is it about this man that makes you so angry that makes you saw frayed really? So it's not Hammond. He's be question. It is a Jewish community who needs to be questioned who by the way, we do not hate. We have never ever desecrated, a Jewish synagogue. There has never been a member of the nation of Islam who has harmed one hair on a Jewish person's head ever anywhere. And I we TMZ now. So y'all go into the research, please do and I want you to try to find one we encourage and even says the holy Koran and the bible wherever the. Name of God is mentioned we must protect that house where it is a synagogue a temple a mosque h earch we are going to respect that. I don't care if we don't agree entirely. Religiously. No. But we agreed to the fact that you believe in God. And we have a lot of the same beliefs as Jewish people. We actually do. So no, we we we respect them. We honor them for their business in all of their you know, they do I they do for self. They have a whole district have farms. I mean, it's like that's honorable. So we are that. However is there a small group who used the name Judaism to shield and hide their wickedness and evil practices? Yes. There is. And they use the name. And I say that specifically they use the name of being Jewish to hide the wickedness that they do. And they try to blame it on the book and say, well, no, they arrive says, no, no, no, no, no. You are using that name to commit some of the worst atrocities same thing as a Muslim. I was about to say same thing. Right. You cannot use the name of Islam and chop somebody's. Head off because they damn Christian. No, that's not what the holy Koran teaches. You are a liar. That is not what you're supposed to do. Which is why we don't follow the so-called Muslim world and all of the practices. They do. Because what they do is not a part of the religion. It is a part of a culture of barbaric people, which is not all of the Arabs. But it's a specific coacher a cave. Like, oh has nothing to do with the teachings of Islam. Do you see what I'm saying? I do see what you said SO. That's there's a very specific distinction. You feel like that the criticism of those specific Jewish people which here on the repeal podcast. We are. We love all groups of people and we foster love for all those haddish's. Well, we wanna do at all people. Do you feel like there's ever been a time where the nation has had what you feel like is an unfair fixation on that small percentage of Jews the nation has always been against wickedness evil, and specifically to that group or those groups of people who helped to subjugate and put the black man or woman down period. It doesn't matter. What anyone says if that group has been the Jewish community. It has never been the entire community. It has always been a small group of wicked people and some of them are not white, right? Let's make this very clear rich international banking families in particularly who have not only subjugated black and Brown people. But there are subjugated red yellow and even poor white people across this planet. It is a very wicked group brother who only want power in want to maintain controlling Dom. And they will do whatever it takes to maintain that. However, the number one is of course, the messenger of God is a number one target. And of course, God's original people which happened to be the black man and woman, and then from there, of course, all human beings came from the black policies, it seems as if to me that you denounce anti semitism, absolutely absolutely with announce anti semitism. We denounce anti Islamic ISM. If that's the word of being anti Islamic anti Christian or anti truth and tie as minister Farrakhan said he said, I'm not anti semitic anti termite is what he said what does the termite? That's termite. Doesn't have a religion, right? Unless there's a religion of wickedness, right? He's anti anyone who sucks. The blood of the poor who want to make themselves stronger by destroying the groups of people who deserve help who deserve a level or an advantage. Give them something. So that we can stand back on our feet. You feel is what he said that that people thought that he meant that Jews termites only people with a guilty conscience will equate a termite rather. It's a tarmac. Listen live with that allow. I'm trying to do is make sure that people don't say this is what I'm trying to make sure I'm trying. This is my thing if we're all clear. Oh, yeah. Everyone can go and do whatever it is. They wanted to screen their implicit bias as wherever they wanna bring. Yes. If we're all clear if we are unclear and we can't do this. Absolutely be rude. What you yes. I've heard this. Yeah. I know you I know I know that there's that. There's no agenda to take down certain groups oils. And let me say I believe, and I know that what happened to me was unfair. Absolutely. I think that it's always when people want to sit down and talk to someone who stands up straight and his search themselves to to know what they're saying. Yes. And to know what the information, really? And I appreciate that. Because you are doing exactly what every group of people should do ask questions. Don't cast labels. Ask questions. Don't force people to denounce someone ask qu-. Questions minister Farrakhan is called four and meeting for years thirty forty fifty years with members of the Jewish community with all of the leaders leaders, all of the rabbis just meet with us not enough threatening manner. But meet with us because you continue to cast this lie across the there's across the media lies across the airwaves about the nation about minutes of Fargo, and it's alive. But you won't give us the chance to sit down and dialogue with you. Like, my brother van is doing now just to ask to see exactly what do you mean? And then give us the chance to explain it to people see only devil brother will cast or like the said throw a stone. And of course, a dog will yell, but you won't give anybody the chance to explain where to stone came from. Did. I throw it. Are you gonna ask me? Did you re brother? Did you throw the stone? No, sorry, not. Okay. You know what? Thank you, very much, a see very simple to be fair just and equitable, but to lie on someone and then force everybody else to believe the lie that you cast without having any substantiated proof whatsoever. And then say. I'm not gonna give you the chance to explain it. A matter of fact, I'm gonna ban you from television. I'm gonna ban you from colleges universities. I'm going to prevent you from speaking on any major news media. And if anyone stands beside you, I'm gonna bar them. I'm going to get rid of them destroy the job destroy the career only devil. Does it? What is it? That is being hit from the people that they don't want them to know, that minister Farrakhan, we'll expose what is really happening. That's all what is going on. Why can't you sit with him? See that's the problem. And if you keep attacking and attacking then you'll get a man to a point where he says, okay? Let's have a showdown now. Now, listen, I've asked you for decades to sit down with me sit down with us. And let's talk we want to come together. No seriously. And I mean, this we want to we have the same plight as a people we want our people to do. Well, but if you are continuing to subjugate mine while yours control, everything let's make this very clear everything who's really God's chosen people. We lost on name, our culture, religion our language. Our God, you know. Your name's your culture, your religion yacht who really are the chosen people? See that's that's where that's now goes there. Because like now, listen, you're not being fair here. And if you're gonna continue to loudness man media can only hold lies so long because the truth always will come out. And that's all we're saying. It's this. Let's let's be fair. Let's talk the same. All right now. That's why I honor you for doing this because you actually have a fair chance of someone to answer a question, and you actually ask it. So the people can understand where the person's coming from. Yes. I mean, listen it for me like, for example. You look as long as there's no hate involve, you can pick different things that you want from different people and make a huge huge tool belt of things that you can go out there and kinda conquer the world with and lead to the section of black Americans with and, you know, their ideas that I follow you on Instagram. And I'm about seventy percent go reason thirty percent town. Life felt that somebody is all right thirties were gonna work on the thirty. So one place. I disagree with you as well is not as well because disagree with you yet. But one place has vehemently disagree with. You is some of the views. It seems like you have tours are LGBT community somebody. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, she ain't learn os. Tell me how you feel and how the nation of Islam feels about gays and lesbians number one their people more people. Yeah. We are literally. Just like, yes, how we feel right people. Now, the behavior is not the person same thing as telling a person will that persons born, a criminal note and not criminal. They are made a criminal by the circumstance with their environment. Same way, we feel about LGBT behavior because we were not born that way. Now people want to go into that they try to go into the biochemical way of doing it. You can try your best. You can actually do your best. You can go to the greatest scientists in the world and do your best to try to come up with an explanation. A diagram. You can do a poll, you can do whatever you want to do blood transfusion blood all of it to try to figure out a way to say we were born this way. No, the lesbian, gay bisexual transsexual queer. And all of the other letters of that behavior originated with Caucasian people might this. Make this very clear. It did not originate in Africa, people try to say that that does not exist. It did not exist because of that's the truth. Why are we all here if we were born in some people go so far as to saying, well, you know, how do you know, that it wasn't literally said you're Christian, right? They say, well, how do you know? It wasn't adamant Steve in the guard. I'm like okay now look at our. So if you if you wanna practice behavior, just do your thing, just if that's what you wanna do say, hey is. That's how that's how I wanna live. No problem. However, if you want to force your behavior on me, and then make me say that that is something that I should accept okay. Now. I have a problem because I don't agree with your behavior. However, I agree with your right to live. It the way you choose to live as long as you do not infringe upon my lifestyle. What would be infringing upon your lifestyle, forcing your homosexuality on me, my children or the children in schools will voice in it though. For instance, right now in California, there are ten books made. Mandatory for children to learn dealing with LGBT telling them that they have to learn have to learn these both have to read these books or else they will not be able to attend school. There are certain things right now. They're pushing something called gender fluidity right throughout California. They have something called drag Queen our and by the way, gender fluidity is something out there saying to children, they're telling this to children out a child should not be pushed into the sexual area until they are of age for that. But a kindergarten or preschool, you know, that's not something you should be pushing on a child matter of fact, you shouldn't even be an injecting that to the child's mind and a nineties we didn't know who was gay or not are just so I mean when I was in the nineties, I didn't know that. That's something people kept private why? Because sexuality should remain in the bedroom. That's a decent individ-. I'm not going to be telling you who I'm doing this and doing not doing doing whatever that's not. That's not public information. However, when it's being forced as I said in schooling education now in laws, they are given more rights now than black. Have gotten last forty to fifty years they've gotten apartment last four hundred they've gone about more than last forty fifty years. It's kind of like, okay. So if you wanna do do you. But once it starts to push inside of me living my life, or as I said my child or our children and people like wait a minute hold on, then you can go and dress this way, and I'm just supposed to accept it. And you tell me what you should just accept. No, I don't have to accept that. Because you wouldn't like for me to force heterosexuality on you force being a Muslim you force. See that's not I do. I think that the counter to that would be a couple of things a couple of issues that take with that number one. I think that if you live in a Herro sexual world, and you day, you see heterosexuality all the time. You see it reflected in movies, and that you see reflected in the movies and popular culture in great stories from the bible all over the place. You see heterosexuality that normalizes heterosexuality and then because it's normal people don't get beat up and killed and discriminated against for. I. What my sister's a lesbian. I think what they would tell you out. Don't do not want to speak for them. But is that if they're lifestyle is normalized, which I don't see anything wrong with it. I don't see anything wrong with people who are gay or lesbian or transgender whatever living out loud. If it's not normalized. How can they ever truly be free? How can they be free and really experienced the same rights? Inexperienced the same freedom of movement and culture, if it's something that they have to hide we'll Janet what are the being freed from number one. They're being freed from persecution there being free from treated as second class citizens. They're being free from from the albatross around their neck of not even wanted to tell people that they love and people around him who they really are. I think that's what they would say. What is again, not speaking for them on the sand. So number one, I have family Wilma sexual okay? Number of cousins. I mean seriously. All right. What they will tell you and have told me is my sexual preference doesn't need to be all out on blast like that. Uh-huh. That's private number one. If they want it to be if they now they want it to be now. Now, you're going up against what's called decency in public. Why they being homosexual is indeed why do I need to be forced to know who you want to have sex with this is all I'm saying sexuality because now once again when you're dealing with pushing it on the public, okay when you have children shouldn't not highly impressionable, they're going to do what they see more than what they hear. They're going to do what they see when address how they see people dressing. They're going to eat what they see people eating around them. They're going to behave the way they see other people behaving in their immediate environment. Now, if you aren't saying to me, I should encourage little boys to be almost sexual see one group will say, no that's not what we're saying. We're just saying we want to be free to express ourselves. Okay. Well, that means there's a level of responsibility. Here you must take responsibility for what you 'cause and other people around you say, you can't be individualistic when it comes to your people, especially if you black because right now, we don't have freedom entirely the rules. I feel like what? So what you're saying? Is you're kind of. What you putting it out there in a way that it's inherently negative to be. No, well, number mom, saying here's the liberation of black people more important than sexuality. Is liberation as a people which by the way includes gave right says are just the liberation of our people of. No, well, well, this is them more important or is me pushing to express myself sexually more important. I don't think that there's a I don't think that there's a more important there. I think really I don't I I'll be honest with you. I don't think that there's more important than I think the liberation of black people like you just said is included. There are so many people that have been part of this movement for very long time that are LGBT black people needed to be liberated long before sexuality ever came to equate. That's very true. And so, but what I would say is I don't want to disrespect someone by making something more important for my sister. She would tell you that that once again, not speaking for her. She would tell you that her identities dual identities as a black woman analysts me and women are two things that she that she deals with in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, whereas not really cool to be either. She deals with them on an equal person. I can't speak for if you're asking me. I would say, well, yeah, I wanna see all black people. Liberated adding using your sexuality is included in your liberty, including her first we have to be liberated people. I I will tell you that there are other people that would say that their trials and tribulations as gay people are specific things something that they even deal with inside of the black community. They deal with homophobia inside of the black community. And they want us to address these things as a community as well as addressing the other things. Do you think that we can do that? Absolutely. But we have to always look at. What is more important is order importance is right? When you leave before we leave you make sure you take a shower or did you say, I'm coming TMZ? They all stank. Anyway, we all stay here. We sometimes we say is that right? Which is what I'm saying? But he's brush my teeth in the shower, but but Bobo, wait, wait. And so when I bet you sounds like. Sounds like you leave when I'm in the shower before I leave, but I'm brushing my teeth as I'm in the shower, but you are not only the cleanness of my body my mouth too, right? I think that's how we should look at this situation and to guy on the sand and sexuality, of course, when out acquaint with the liberation of an entire nation of people. So we have to understand that an even let's say if I were homosexual the first thing, I'm first of all I'm a black man in America. I have been diametrically opposed not only in law, but an agriculture and every single system that you can lame in this country. I've been diametrically opposed to sure sexuality was not what enslave my people at. All. Right. Actually matter of fact, I think it's the opposite. As a matter of fact, me not wanting to be homosexual is what helped to kill more people have more people be killed because I refused. The advances of the slave master in the people trying to talk my people just so we can be one hundred percent factual issue. That is now being approved of an accepting. It's right. It's a behave. It's a way of expressing oneself. Right. Like, you said they want express themselves. They want to be able to. I wanna be able to walk down the street holding the hands of some dude or some lady without people judging them and making them a second. And now and on and to that point. I don't judge. No man who wants to hold the hand of another man. Now, if you are holding this man's hand. And I look at you. And I look away you better not come over and say, did you you don't like that. I'm holding his hands. Okay. Hold on. Okay. Now. Let's listen, I'm already okay with you expressing yourself. But I am not going to like you said agree. I don't have to agree, but I can respect you. Br why to agree though, one? Oh, no, no, no. If it's not your business. Why would you not agree with it wouldn't be my business? If you wouldn't put it out there to make it my business, you what first of all. I'm just noticing. And that's if you want argue won't be have to be t number we can test because I love him. I have I love it people under this is what I'm saying. I love my people regardless to what their sexual orientation. It is. That's the point. Okay. No, literally as I said, I have family were gay. Most of them will sit up here and say no to hell with that. Stop putting your business all out. They're grown women growing will say no, why do I need to promote it some? I'm only referring to those who want to be so flamboyant like the gentleman that to one video that I saw was the gentleman who I can't remember the guy's name now. But he wore address to the Academy Awards best dress, and you came out there. First of all a recipe on I listen, I watch those videos three or four times because he'd be talking so fast and videos, and I'm thinking to myself. I watched the guy that was wearing a gown, and I wasn't bothered at all if this master wants to go to the Oscars and wear a gown all power to him. Why is that something that that that you feel like is inherently negative number one not inherently negative? Okay. You use the word. I it's personal individuals. Listrik right. I'm not looking from an I I'm looking for a week. I look at how it affects the people how to fix the minds of children specifically as a little boy black boy who currently already has so many things against him in this country. And then pedophilia is a major problem, which has grown man or grown women fondling or doing things sexual with little boys little girls, if you want to encourage homo sexuality, the only difference is age now when you're dealing with pedophilia right age, of course, as far as an adult and a child if you want to encourage one you can encourage one without getting the other because it's going to become something that children, they see is going to be an environment. So it's going to push their mind prematurely into a sexually induced type of behavior. They went to mentally go into this and the environment, of course, is already pushing it, but the kids aren't responsible for the pedophilia, the grown adults are the annuals are also responsible for whatever sexual preference. They are exuding or pushing in the environment on the children. Like being everyone has to be responsible for what they do. That's do feel like being gay lends itself to pedophilia in anyway. Well, the only difference pedophilia homosexuality is age, but also those inference originate from the same place. Well, the only the only difference between a regular sexual relationship and pedophilia is age. No, just any difference. As far as sexuality when it comes to pedophilia homosexuality at center is age. Pedophilia. Is this difference in age? It's a child or an adult having a sexual desire for child. That's the major you pedophile and both came from the same place, which is the Caucasian male primarily in Greek Greek and Roman times on occasions rule almost like shoe -ality as well as pedophilia. So all I'm looking at because by the way, when it comes to our people as I said before if you get almost sexual okay, you still my brother, I mean, like just pure, you my brother my sister. So let's get that clear. Sure. I love you, regardless your behavior, though, if I tell you where it came from who can't get mad. I mean for that. Well, I'll wait a minute. 'cause now you carry out a behavior of someone who helped to oppress and destroy our peop- doesn't want to look at it. And I, but you and you can continue to live it. But just understand why I am so diametrically against it. Because it's like, listen, I came from the same dude who destroyed our people, so I can't endorse it. But I don't hate you. Last thing I'll say on this issue. And once again, I think that gay Americans would say black. Americans would say that what they want is. They do want encouragement. I do. I'll I do encourage anyone who is gay to live their fullest life. And the reason why I do encourage that is because I think that we are here to live our full this life. We're here to not high from who we are. And I don't know that anyone would choose to engage in a homosexual. I'm gonna be real what you I choose in the suck no date like you and me it. So so so so I believe that if if someone is attracted to men or try to women or track to that that's something that was a biological imperative in them, and that they should no way feel that they can't be as open about their sexuality as they need to be to live full fully experienced fully realized and just have a good time during life, and that takes anything away from our people I understand. So you're coming from a perspective of wanting to express oneself. I just said listen to the fullest potential now. I'm literally gonna looking at it from what it is. It's sexuality right now. Everything else, of course, Libya of go. I mean have careers. I mean, yes, you have family. We want experience have fun, but I'm not going to over simplify this as though having sex with the man is something that I should encourage. That's what we're talking about here. Women with women men with men now as of right now, the United States census bureau has determined by the twenty forty two that Caucasian. People will be the minority completely in this country, and that's will be a majority Brown country as a right now, they are trying to get rid of us do vaccinations through control diseases through police brutality through a homosexual agenda being pushed by the government, not by the T. But by the actual government. They are using chemicals such as Atrazine marijuana and other things are using chemicals. Yeah. No forget Atrazine in marijuana. Okay, medical. Let's go have a talk. Let's go with reasons long who doesn't want me to smoke. My brother. Now, you brought me here. No, listen, you just had we just had we just had to have this conversation. Yeah. So that people know there are a lot. I'm going to be real with you. Yes. There are a lot of people draw back and forth right now who are going to be offended are going to be triggering. I'm with but I'm from Compton, I understand I get it. We got to be ready just wanna make sure that there that when we're extracting hatred. And when we're extra excuse me, when we're divorcing and destroying hatred inside of our society inside of our community out that we don't hold onto any hatred that we might have, of course. Yeah. I don't know. No. We don't demonize we just put the truth there demon. But once again, here's another thing. I noticed when it comes to homosexual males blackmails for me, I've had to repeat this to them. I've had to say, I do not hate you. You're my brother the behavior out on agree with? But I don't hate you. I respect you respect me. I respect you as individuals is simple. But I'm not I don't agree to be. Savior, cool. What I'm not going to treat you different. Let me give you my birth right playing the simple don't be so emotional if I disagree because in the world that we live in people have the right to disagree again. Which is an emotional thing, you know, people growing as a probably like they can be themselves and having all of these issues, and then want to get to a point where they can live the same type of life that everyone else lives and being told that there's something wrong with them. You understand that must be a struggle. Well, no, they wanna live of being Blackman America on stand the struggle. I number one. That's why then that woman in a black man to me when you understand that struggle. We should be able to be impetus to people who are. No, no, no, no, no. Of course. However, I never look at the effect without looking at the cause of the origin of a circumstance or condition. I look at the origin. There is pedophilia rampant in the black community with families. And nobody wants to talk about this pedophilia rampant in the Mexican community and Brown community. No one wants to talk about this pedophilia rampant within the white community that nobody wants to talk about. But where did the damn thing originally from our Kelly, for instance, it was his oldest sister who did that too? Him and how many older sisters have done these things to their little brother's little sister. How many brothers how many ankles grandfathers fathers or mothers have done this? I never will let this system off the hook brother ever. I'm not gonna look at my people say I'm just going to deal with this effect or this circumstance. We're in now know where this come from. Because if you look at where it came from a lot of them who are feeling the where they're feeling beat by the way, a lot of people don't know who are homosexual. They don't like it because they don't know where it came from. They they say they say, I don't know why once they say that. That's when I absolutely let them know where it came from originally. So they know. Okay. The history. Okay. So, you know, the facts and okay, cool. And then they can go into exactly what happened during their childhood. If you really want understand why you are to where you are. And some people you mentioned you said a biological thing. I do not believe in neither disci- agree with the fact that there is anyone born homosexual. However, the government now has chemicals which are making people become born homosexual by nature that does not exist literally because you came from a woman and a man. So did I sort of every single human being on this planet boy of homosexuality has existed like going back like thousands of years? Yes. What the Caucasian move on real quick? I. Good. We'll we'll max I can't. I can't talk about. We'll we'll grid this rare. I got I heard you say something that I was interested in you said that and it almost seemed like during this video that you were having some sort of a Pitney you were talking about the way black people argue and interact with one at all. Yeah. In in public and your problems with with sort of the way, we take each other to task. Yeah. All night on great big sort of platforms and in the public sphere. Tell everybody what you were talking about. And what do you mean, you just break that whole thing? Number one. When it comes to being a black person in America. Our number one agenda should be liberation should be freedom Justice equality us. Establishing our own everything economics agriculture schooling at cetera. Just like every other community of people does the Jewish community has on independent schools at farms at cetera et cetera. The Indians have that most Caucasian communities have that they have literally established pretty much almost everything for themselves that if everything shuts down from the government, they can live and sustain themselves or at least a couple of months or. Years. Okay. They have a certain amount of equity. They have a certain amount of wealth within the family. We do not have as a people all of these basic necessities. We are now regaining them slowly. But surely, we are in the nation of Islam, for example, we have been schools farms. It said we have businesses we have a number one black on news publication on the planet. The final paper, you know this. So we were doing our best. But it's still a struggle. You know, we're we're working to become independent everyone else is. So that is the number one agenda. Why am I going to argue with my brother literally about something that is not going to help our condition right now. If I got a problem with and Leith, and I'm not going to blast van late on I g I'm not gonna blast them on Facebook. No, I'm going to if I can I wanna get my brother personally. But I don't like it you that you did this. I don't like to say at that. But what's what's going on? And I get at you. Because that is how decent people do it. You do not see the Jewish community blasting each other on Instagram not entirely. You do not see the Indians do this. You don't even see white people entirely blasting each other. All out in public specifically with blue check marks those who are celebrities those who are elected officials etcetera. They don't do that why. Because what you do in the public affects the masses of the people beneath you, how can people trust us as those who call ourselves influences, if we can't even have a decent dialogue with one. Another improv. It about matters that belong in the private if I have a disagreement with whatever celebrities snoop to Amanda says the amber rose, whoever if I have a disagreement with them if I can get in touch with them, I will. And if I can't if they did something that was just so horrific in public the way we are taught a nation is if you do something in public, we believe you must be corrected in public. But there's a way to do it. Even if I do have a disagreement would that way to do it number one that has to be respectful. It has to be in love in love a caring way. Just like you said if he LGBT a caring way, okay, considered the person's feelings consider that the person may have a family who watches this stuff children who have Instagram who when they search their mother father's name. They see a video you call. Their mother a whole when the tramp couldn't be compassionate and be aware that you may be affecting more than just the person you talking about because a lot of people look up to these so-called influences. Celebrities brothers and sisters who have this level of influence that looking up to them. They look to him for guidance. They look at them in some of what they do impacts these people's lives to where they feel like living another day. So you have to be mindful of how you approach it. Do it in love do it with compassion and consideration and do it with the intent to help. And simply give advice not to harm do it with the intention to educate not to destroy to elevate not to bring down or to depress. Does that make sense? Absolutely. That's how we are talking nation. We we're not gonna do it. Because we who's watching who's network is the CIA who's network is this the FBI, right? Let's just be real all I'm doing is giving them munitions enemies. A Kate destroying me. And my people I'm giving them answers on how they can continue to come in and destroy me easily. What do you think the reason is that we haven't learned these ways to communicate with one another that are more, affirming? And more constructive. Why do you feel like we take such stances against one another in public spaces number one? When we were coming out of slavery. We were rewarded for doing things negatively to one another? We were rewarded for Mandingo fighting as I can be my brother as much as I can. And if I win I'll get a beer and a nice, switch slave woman have sex with tonight, the battle royale, they would strap, you know, something across my face, and it will be ten of us little children. And we just swing and swing and swing. Whoever is left. Standing gets a reward a nice meal gets asleep in a big house for the night. There's something called the meritorious Manion law where man black man or woman who was a slave. They if they snitched or told Massa on who was trying to cause a create a slave revolt. They will be rewarded, and so it just let us know who we are. It'd be a good boy go tell me who out there trying to cause an uproar ruckus around my niggers, and they will bring back into gear. Nice report, there'd be rewarded that is still in place. Today. You have certain celebrities people who went black faces on who are doing things to prevent the rise of us as a people. We're not going to rise up and go kill white, folks. That's not the damage at the point. Is we want liberation? We want freedom just as inequality. We want to be treated equally and fairly among those with the best in society is very simple, but we are not encouraging nothing negative to nobody else. See that's the insanity about this. So if you are arguing you are only doing what this enemy benefits from arguing in public as a black person who has influence is only benefiting the system which helped to destroy us both together. So if it's not gonna help me and the people if it's not gonna help you in the people, why are we going to do this in public get at your brother or sister in private because the other thing is not only are we being rewarded, but we have become prostitutes for likes and views. Now when you see the most views you try to think about the hottest story. Oh R Kelly, for example, out of the video on our Kelly because a lot of people who are comedians celebrities et cetera. Just started wailing on our Kelly, and it's like, I don't agree with the. Let's let's be let's be really. What's that? The like that interview that he did actually it was hilarious. I understand reason. Hey, I was really sad to say Brotherston. He should've just kept his mouth. Really like, you should as or and they and there's a lot of people that will ask you about R Kelly specifically. Yes, there's a lot of people that would feel like because our Kelly's victims are young black women that excuse me, alleged victims, are are are are are young black women that are Kelly doesn't deserve the cultural protection that we would give to someone else who white. Well, no, not why I'm saying why you give we give it to white people. We don't do it to give it to white people on long. You don't the same energy? That was given to R Kelly was not given to Donald Trump has over twenty two women against him. It was not Harvey Weinstein who has over eighty and people will say, well, no. But see white folk see he black hold on, wait a minute. What I'll tell you more about the victims victims as well. As the they were saying, what people would say is that. And by the way, I'm dispassionate about the R Kelly thing, whatever happens to our Kelly R Kelly he should suffer the consequences if he's not doing anything right should serve the time. Right. So so I don't like. A Kelly can get whatever is coming to him. I would say that people that were coming down on our Kelly. We're doing it for two reasons. This is what I would say one reason is because his victims unlike Weinstein, and unlike some of these other people were young black women and number two, it's almost a self corrective thing as in. We realized as a culture that are Kelly had a proclivity to young girls, and we as a culture for years justified justified, and it's tech these young women. So a lot of ways the ridicule that are Kelly gates now in this situation is us trying to self correct? And almost an inherent deterrent from anyone else who would behave in that way. And I'm not saying that that's consciously what people are doing. I'm saying that people probably have less of a problem talking shit about our Kelly because his victims were winning from our community that we failed to protect, and I know you just did what you said we as a people justified. It we excuse me. We didn't say anything I continue to hear artists this same. Once we get up right now. And they are it's the manner in which you are coming at it, not not you them so much vitriol. There is damn near hatred. When you and a lot of y'all were involved in this. So how about this since we wanna be so passionate against our Kelly? How did you contribute to our Kelly and one of his victims? Please explain to me when you were in a studio with him. You didn't say nothing about a girl being bent over a bid if that occurred, please explain to me how you helped him to get tickets to fly somebody out because he's alliterate, and we all know this. He couldn't read or write entirely. So you help them to do it. How about the mother and the father who Fords the marriage document for Leah? How about the you'll need to divvy it up all the way? And as a matter of fact, if you want to be completely Justice say, well, yeah, you know, what come down to articulate what he did come down on all of them all of them. Everybody who helped him and then go to the white folks and been doing it for years, including the Catholic church was been doing this for over six thousand by the way, over six thousand Catholic priests which collectively have been molesting over thirty three thousand little boys. Let's be very clear here bring it all out got ever, bro. Elvis Presley, you, let's Hafner. Listen, rain towel. Including Kelly said, listen, I'm gonna be real with you. I don't have a problem with anyone who's abused children or who's taking advantage of your or your. I don't have no problem with any of them getting it sometimes though, it seems as if I will say this now it is time to have a discussion about the whole gamut of it just because certain people are being brought to bear other people aren't but it does seem like sometimes the what about. Elvis. What about Harvey Weinstein? What about the rest of these people? It seems like it's the function away not at home from the thing, which is this man abuse young black. That's not that's not my premise, nor the nation's premise nor the nation's stance. Would we say is I've been very upset about that about people know about people in Quebec it in and doing all of those let me make this very clear. Everybody can understand. We are Muslims. Do you know what the penalty is for pedophilia? And it's Lomb. I would imagine that is not favorable. A lot will agree regain you right about that? Right, right. I would imagine that it's heading. Yeah. Okay. And some some countries under Islamic law is castration taking your penis and chopping off. Okay. I mean, let's be his grew out. Noah castration, was reasons just had to get graphical. I've got to be real we saw. So we can understand that. Okay. He's not excusing it. He's not saying what about no, no, no. This is not any of that. It is how about now. What about how about we won? Absolutely R Kelly suffer the consequences. But you don't have to help to burn the man going down by the system was already bringing down. He's been found out. What all of these victims going down Clinton? We're watching them go down. But why am I going to piss on him and throw more fire on him? When he is. He is clearly going down. I don't need to help this system. Who has always destroyed my people where they were guilty or innocent. I don't need to continue to help them to already destroy man. Who's already destroying himself arc has been found. Boom. So now he's going to suffer the consequences. But I as a black man can never excuse what they have done to all of our people for so goddamn long into you know, what I'm gonna put all this anger. All of this passion and say, you know, what? Because our Kelly his victim victims were black young black women. Young black women have been getting raped molested killed and all that by white folks for cinch. Stories and God them in my energy is one hundred percent for the maximum against this system. And then of course, when it comes to my people you too because you're carrying out a behavior that was being perpetuated. I buy them. I don't agree with none of that behavior. Whether you black or white you will suffer the consequences. My only thing is everybody who was involved needs to go down to stop pretending like it's just killing. 'cause he was not the only one of all speaking of crimes that people allege happened against children. Oh, yeah. You know? I'm about to ask you about do you think? Michael jackson. Oh, yeah. So here's the deal. Hope you already zoom in zoom in. Okay. Let's let's zoom brain. Let's bring Mike to the table. Okay. So let's let's Michael Jackson table. I watched the two part finding Neverland series. And when I watched it to par finding Neverland series. I find myself appalled and the gas at a lot of things that were being said, yes, I'm gonna be honest with the people about something. Immediately after these five and R Kelly series premiered came out. I had a sort of a. Visceral reaction to our Kelly's music whenever it would be played on whenever I would hear it. I'll be honest. I don't want to hear anything. They don't want to see our Kelly. I after watching two part documentary leaving Neverland and Oprah's whatever after Neverland situation, then played some Michael Jackson music. I would be lying if I said I had the same response. Right. I'll be lying if I said, and I admitted this on my social media before this that there's a possibility that I'm just too emotionally connected to Michael Jackson's music fact, that Michael is dead all of these things that I might be rationalizing to really feel. The disconnect between myself what Michael meant to me as a child and what Michael Jackson's music, and who he was has meant to me for so ever, I might not be capable ever hating or muting or anything like Michael Jackson. And if that is in fact, and if he did do these things that kids Eddie, did that's a failing on my part, and I will wear this. I said that in order to be honest with my community about my emotional feelings towards someone's music. Understood you say in no way that Michael Jackson do what they're accusing him. Absolutely. Not break that down for people number one thousand five Michael Jackson's found not guilty on all counts all accounts all accounts two thousand and five number two way Robinson one of the individuals in Robeson. Yeah. Not that one. That role. One of the same individuals who when he was a child in two thousand and five testified in San Michael Jackson. Didn't do it. The other individual also ends documented also test. Michael Jackson, didn't do it. Back in two thousand five we didn't testify in two thousand five say saved didn't say chug. Okay. Got rotates not in ninety three. They both have Ninety-three. Thank you. Right. So both of them testified semi Jackson. No. He didn't do that. No, okay. Found not guilty by all accounts under oath right under oath now by this. That's that's law. Okay. Fast forward up until right now. Michael Jackson had over six hundred and seventy three pages in his FBI. File. He was being investigated by one of the largest investigations ever conducted for one individual over forty five or fifty offices. Detectives collectively, etc. Were investigating just him. They were investigating his computer history. His searches they were investigating his phone text messages phone calls. It's everything trying to find child pornography child, indecency, pictures, whatever it conversations that that that seemed. A little awkward weird anything. They were looking at surveillance footage all throughout Neverland on the outside as well. As in every single solitary building every room etcetera, etcetera, they combed his life, the FBI who does not like black people, regardless if you believe Michael Jackson is black white point is guy says. They do not like black. So please explain to me why the FBI would be putting on and trying to protect Michael Jackson. Okay. This make that very clear, but they found at six hundred seventy three pages now guilty nothing they found nothing. They only released three hundred thirty three pages at the time just for certain time. Then they released the rest of it can go read it on now, all of my computer. There you go. They be haven't been able to finish yet. But I know. Yeah. And you should everyone should because the only thing we need to do is operate an actual fact, so those that's just the actual fast. When it comes to this government, which has not been a friend of the black man, right? Let's just makes it very clear. Okay. Good. Why would they be protecting him? Okay. Next point the other white man Caucasian. Corey Feldman came on and said, no, Michael Jackson. Never did anything to me. Matter of fact, not only did he not do anything to me. I know exactly who did do something. And Michael never did. That ain't never would Corey Feldman was putting on hard heavy from my recently because I'm sure he was silenced by somebody. But he's been putting on form air. I know recently he has been to. No, no, no, no. He's still has. But he he said something dealing something to the effect of. Well, I I'm going to reserve some of my comments for now. But he still has stance on Michael Jackson ever didn't time. After the the thing came out the next day. He said everything I saw about Neverland was true except for the sex part. And the way that they described all of the stuff how how great it was. And all of that all of that was true except for this. Of course, it, of course, it so he said nothing sexual. He said he's had nothing says okay now, here's the point on this one. So Mike, do none of that stuff. Now. Here's another piece that people don't wanna look at if Michael Jackson, slipping a my discount from somebody who's been in never land. I've been to Neverland personally myself very clear Michael Jackson there. I was a child because we would like we ought to know. I was a child nineteen ninety nine two thousand and I believe in two thousand and one could have been like right between two thousand two thousand one. But I've been able to three times when I was a child was their fares wheels animals, arcade games, free, food everywhere. It was heaven didn't wanna leave our little boy from Compton, please. It was amazing. Right. Michael. Was there amazing? He was I mean, we were crying all the time. Seeing my on my guy, Michael Jackson, but an. An amazing human being very, powerful spiritual being brother. All right now. Here's the point. If the government says, you're not guilty. The courts say you're not guilty. The same people who were children back then. But now are Dulles who were saying you're not guilty. But the only difference between these people are saying he is guilty and those other children who said he is not is that these people happen to be not doing too, well, financially is the main thing I looked at it. This is what happens when you go on actual facts. They're not doing good financially. Not only that. But he was set up way ropes in to be the girl the boyfriend to Michael Jackson's nieces brandy Jackson brand Jackson, right? Who I spoke to? So they were set up when they were younger, my dance and put them together as a girlfriend, and she said that he one is a habitual liar. One to she said that he has physically had sexual encounters with many different people to try to boost his career throughout Hollywood another place that she spilled all of this on him. She I can't believe this, man. Try to come out and say this about. My uncle I can't believe so she put out all the truth on him. And here's the other point this documentary was not based on facts. This was based on hearsay opinion on what someone is saying is fact, but has not been substantiated or supported by actual facts. The actual facts have come out. They've been out Michael Jackson's been devastating years. So I guess whatever punishment. He would have faced he can already face it. He's gone. What can what can we do? Now. See when you get to a point of insanity where you say we're going to dig this man up. That's when I said, okay Elvis, Hugh, Hefner. I'm like a because if you want to go there now when this man has been deemed innocent looked at verified innocent, but you still taking the word of a white man who before said, he didn't do anything. Now, he's saying he did something. What is that legally? What is that? Is that a form of double jeopardy in court? Could it be and also did you lie right now? So you tell the truth now, but you say July because you wanted to protect Michael Jackson. Also, you committed what does that card perjury in court where you lied, and you? Old. So don't you jail. See hold on C now. Now's like stop playing. Stop. Like, what's the real point? You are trying to get money from Michael Jackson's estate because you're broke. That's the point. You didn't get the money because you said he was innocent and one of them lied and said, well, yes, my parents told me to lie back then they said so it was like what's really going on here and not only that to the very top of this. They're trying to destroy the legacy of a man who inspired not only a boom within the system of music, culture, etc. For them to come out of slavery within necessarily get your masters. Start your own do everything for yourself. Do something for your people heal the world. Do he Michael Jackson was causing a revolution? In the minds of the people the moment, he said get your own masters, just I print said Sony and everybody was looking at Mike. Okay. Now this bastard this plan because you're destroying our plantation, and you are trying to ruin our money flow. Do you think that do you think that Michael Jackson's death was accident as they say, well, no, not even close UCLA medical center. How are you dying at UCLA? Medical center in that area whatsoever. One of the best areas of medical care, you know, for emergency. It said how are you dying propofol a chemical which by the way from understanding car, Mary is a cardiologists from my from my understanding, but you need to be an anesthesiologist or have someone under supervision who is licensed to monitor that type of anesthesia, you're cardiologists, not an anesthesiologist. Uh-huh. Michael Jackson woke up injected himself and went back to sleep a highly doubted. See, let's let's let's look at all of the things, by the way, the nation was securing Michael during this time to make very clear when they testify member of the nation who were his security. They brought out artifacts. See this is the other thing people don't know we were securing him at a certain period of time and everybody was like, no one has not like Michael autism. There's no, no literally. No, actually, no, Michael Jackson did have women around him at times. Let's be very clear here. Michael good Alamos. Anyone he wanted and he did periodically every now? And then I don't know. Emmens names. I have no idea. What names are but they have verified. Yes. He did that all of this is true. So his death was not an accident, brother. It was a hit because once he left Sony owning the majority of Sony the catalog anytime one of these names play music from beyond say to now Cardi B Nicki Menaj Justin Bieber audit. Whenever the music play. Michael Jackson got a check. This man was becoming a giant. He was already that. He was there. But he was almost publishing the ATV. Bravo Jackson, come on. Now. It's like, wait a minute. So he was and he was going to create an independent label, and then invite all of the black artists or whatever artists after that. So that they can have the ownership of their masters and have free total creative control was planning to. He was planning to do that. And now that now you now you're talking to revolution. Now because all of these international bankers who own music, and film, and all that they get paid based on how many of the people that can enslave onto these contracts. They really do they put you in there. And if you don't to read and write good beautiful because you don't look at the contract. You don't have somebody's having a second pair is reading. For you, you signed three sixty contracts, you sign your life away like R Kelly. Did he doesn't own the majority of the music he's ever ridden or song? Right. See this. That is what Michael Jackson did not want to be involved in anymore. And that's what he was inspiring people to not get involved in any more. So now, you have Chris Brown owning his masters now you have offset talking about owning your masters for rail Williams on your master's, Jay Z, Tom. I don't see as a problem because these in these executives are pissed off, Dan, we're not gonna we're not going to get the big big big check like we normally would have we own the masters who inspired them to on a master's, Michael Jackson prior long before him Sam Cooke am co bra bra died under mysterious circle rather. Yeah. Always under mysterious circumstances. Prince the same way how very healthy man vegan riding a bike in cold winter air talking about oh, he had the flu. Why would he be riding a bike out? Did this come on? But he was talking about Kim trails. He was talking about the government. He came on stage and told them imagine what it would be like if we had our own game. He told them get your own own your own everything. Own your masters. That is not what they want to hear. It's kind of like you telling TMZ, let's go so low, and I'm might go ahead and create Mon everything understanding your brother TMZ. I hear he walked like dang talk. Right. Let's see. But that's that's where went, and that's what happened to Michael so him dying by the absolutely was not some accident, not entirely. No. And anyone who knew Michael personally new? Yes, he was a hard dancer. He was addicted to painkillers because one main mainly because of the burns, he got from the commercial, Pepsi commercial that brother hit the degree of burns were so bad on his skin to where Michael had to wear wigs. He had to pretty much shave the rest of his hair off his skin was so badly burned to where there was no way. It can be he could get back the natural hair. He had so he had to wear wigs. So we had to take painkillers for that for a very long time and on top of that for his dancing. He was a perfectionist and he had to dance and he danced hard for anyone on average who dances. You know? The physical amount of force. He will. A us on his body to do those moves. It was like, wow. Mean it was really hard and he barely slept. I mean, all of these things. So anyone who was involved in music, or exercise, whatever they understand what you point of fatigue. He wouldn't stop. He would still be practicing up in four in the morning in the studio dancing dancing, dancing. The brothers will tell you. They would just he just couldn't stop and he had to take these painkillers. He was taken all kinds of things just to maintain. So that he could perform and once he left, and he told on Tommy Mottola, and he told about total and Sony, and he he expose everything. His last phone call. He said, they're not happy with me. They're very angry with me Michael Jackson's last phone call. He said, I don't care about my life anymore. I don't care about anything. All I care about is my children. I just want them to be safe. My my baby's my angels. That's all I care about that was his last phone conversation, brother. But who was he talking about when you say they are angry with me. See that's what we have to understand. Is there an agenda to destroy the? Man. Once he reaches a level of power and independence. You believe that there is of course, one hundred percent one thousand percent fifty dollars percent. How like when you when you see this in action? I you know, what I want to get to quits because I'm gonna come back to that. I want to talk about what we as black people are putting in our bodies. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yes. Because you know, what I I know it's about brothers from the nation. And I want you to take this in a way, where do you think they got gray skin? Yes. Library zooming. If you if you ever if you mean, a brother from the nation as he'll be talking, it'd be like like, even yes, there's a Farrakhan great. How many hours eighty eighty five eighty six and the sisters and the brothers that are in the nation. They're glowing. What are you guys? Eating number one. We are taught by the most reliable Muhammad in his book how to live we're going to to to stick to one meal a day, right? One full meal a day. That's one way you only willing one one full day you eat one full day for military. When do you eat this man normally after four pm? Okay. Yeah. Right. When the sun is going down, but it's only after four PM, and it has to be a healthy balanced meal. We don't eat everything we don't eat process. We don't even again to the best of our ability. We really do our best to stay away from these things. We don't eat a lot of things that people say are good for you. But as really not a lot of things that are genetically modified Monsanto field. All this stuff. We don't. But one day we exercise we fast for three days out of every month. Meaning no food three days straight every month. And of course, say oh, let you. Okay. Like, bro. I met one meal got the first ball. First of all imagine only having one meal a day. Hey, look days. You can't even have that one. Look, I go. Okay. So one day, we we stick heavily to the navy bean, or what it's called the great white bean as one of the only beans that is anti radiation. It's anti-aging and has over eighteen nutrients ended full of minerals. I mean, tons of this you can literally live off of that being alone. As what we're talking Mohammed. We do our best to drink. Lots of water, we exercise vitamins, minerals, we do all of the the basics people here about, but we do much more than that as well. And on our skin. I mean for me as well. A lot of us say but to. Just because some somebody's I cannot do something because I can't do none of that. But is there anything banks black soap and shea butter because that is native to the DNA of the original people. What about what about the regiment of of Muslim men and women on minimum that are files of honorable lodge and Louis Farrakhan, what about those things should we incorporate entire die right away. Oh, everything. I said number one your I can't I can't do one meal. Okay. Let's listen. I'm doing right now. Right now, I'm doing I'm doing intermittent fasting. They okay good. No. No. No. That's good. That's actually that's extremely good. Which is a lot of people can't even do that much. So for you to do that. That's dope. Right. First off keep doing intimate and fasting start to cut out too. Many burgers and fries fried foods a lot of cheese cut back on the fried. Who's cut back on a dairy say fry foods? Do you mean pop is or bro? Khalid say fry food. I mean, you mean other your Papa if you can survive them biscuits that gallon of papa's. Hey, sorry. John, you know, and whoever's. Somebody's trying to kill black cloak. That's all I'm saying. Okay. The papa's and everyone black whatever are so low. Yes that it goes. Which is hard. I know I listen, I love me. Some pop is audit the shrink with our lives. Now lives brother, you know. So it may tell you it's good. But do your best to get away from it. You know, don't try to cut everything out in one day. 'cause you will you'll your body will go through withdrawals. Okay. But cutback on it, you know, eat less exercise, more put more fruits and vegetables most Mohammed, of course. And of course, science. So it shows that to be true, you can never get enough fruits and vegetables, of course, raw vegetables, raw Ruben majority do that you want to drink a lot of water, of course. And you definitely want to as you said fast as often as possible because if you fast the body will heal itself, completely it will get rid of every element sickness disease because the body will strengthen this up. That's it. That's how it was made to kill all diseases pathogens invading bacteria. What what have you? So these are different things that people should include. But you should start on a good gradient. You know, good level of step. If you if you like your died as on Coca Cola. Cheetos, and and Snickers man, you're gonna be up out of here. He bra just either apple to start. And I mean because your body pools at these things with what so many chemicals now in the food. Now, not only do you have to watch. What you eat you have to eat a little more. Now, a little more vegetables, the more fruit to get the same nutrients that you would have gotten from vegetables and fruits twenty thirty years ago. Right. See so so because there's a war on our food. We should take it. A little more serious slowdown on fast food increase on cooking at home. Like we used to increase cardio lots of fruits vegetables fasting as much as possible. Don't hurt yourself. You know, and I recommend everyone. Get the book how t- to live from analyze dot org and go and follow book one and two and follow that information there, and we'll give you everything you need to know. One thing. I definitely want to touch on with you. And I'm not gonna keep you here. All day, brother. Understood our relationship with our women. Yes. The black man's relationship with the black women. I tell you how this affects me. I have amazing women in my life. I have amazing women. In my life. I was just everybody. Go look at the picture that I put up of mama. Mo on her birthday. She's twenty three my grandmother. How that's right. So like when I look at the women. My father was my my living beacon, the the man who implanted my backbone, and to me the man who made me step forward and be able to look a man in his eyes and shake his hand and tell them, but the women that gave me my spiritual center so women that gave me the compassionate. I have for people the willingness to do good in this world, the -bility to focus on the multitude of different thing. Absolutely. Those all came from women. And so when I see sometimes the pain that sisters half in dealing with black men. Yes. In dealing with them, it it. It bothers me. It bothers me that women that have gone through so much. They've struggled that have been through so much. Many different things a lot of times feel abandoned, absolutely. And feel powerless to sort of address these things, and I feel like we're listening as black men. I know this is a huge point in in the nation. What do we have to do to support? Protect and uplift. I women better. I brought that we have to understand exactly who they are in society and on the planet in creation, literally they are the first teacher. They are the mother civilization. I and I'll see for black women and particularly the mother of all civilization. We have to thoroughly understand who she is literally we have to have the knowledge of our history as a people we have to know why we are in this condition. And we also have to understand that the black man is not the enemy of the black woman. And the black woman is not the enemy of the black men. We were made into a nigger type of destroyed people we were made in conditioned into this. We weren't. Born this way. All right. We weren't born bashing women calling them the female dog and a black woman. We're not born bashing black men calling us. No, good nNcholas. This is not how we were by nature. We were made into this condition by the circumstance of the environment that we were put into this is how it was done to us. So the first thing as I was saying earlier we have to go back to the calls. What happened to us? We have to thoroughly understand that. I if a black woman really wants to understand who she is. She has to go to who she was in history. The greatest of who she was not know slave. We didn't start as being enslaved people long before we say, kings and queens. Yeah. But can you name some? Do you know any because if you thoroughly knew that you wouldn't just say it anymore? You would operate in it cleaning Zinger Taipei. You would really be like, wait a minute Queen Madame Tenenbaum. You would really be like, wait a minute. Wait a minute. I am regal. Hold on. Let me cover myself. Let me stand up. Let me let me stop so down and acting like I'm some little tool or something. I'm not a female. No, you're not you birth all human beings on the planet. Do you understand what type of power that is and the black man on on the side as well? We both of us mother and father civilization creators of those on this planet. The black man has to also understand one who turn you into a destroyer of women. How did that happen? See we are destroying women. Why because we were destroyed. And so, of course, what was done to one. We'll be done to the other. It's a perpetual thing that has been happening now is generational. Right. And it's also because it's environmental because we're in the same environment poor environment, low, nutrition and environment. Destroyed education and environment. Creates a destroyed mental physical emotional economical person. I don't have a good level of thinking because I don't have the right food. I don't have enough money. I have a criminal mentality. Why because I'm trying to survive. Now, we just trying to survive in. So we come in at everybody has the we enemies. I'm trying to fight you fight. You kill you. Rob you this is something that was done. We were made into this. Once we look at it from that perspective. Like, wait a minute. We are victims of a circumstance where victims of a cause of an actual cause of a system that is still in place today. But some of us are prepared tweeting this willingly now, even though some of us know, why we're putting position how we were putting position we know that we are kings, and queens and God's on the earth. God is meaning one with force and power, we know this, but some of us are still doing so for those who are willingly participating in the destruction of women. They need to be checked and they need to be resurrected mentally as you said your father is wanna gave you the backbone. Okay. Well, man need to teach men now because we know that men sharpen man like steel sharpens steel, you're not gonna walk around here and act as though black man don't need to be retort because we out here acting like we Negus killing each other every day. That's not what we are. We are the original people we are kings. We are God's children of the most high guy. So we need to operate like that with wisdom guidance understanding power culture and refinement we have to have a level of pride not saying, I'm better than all of y'all. But saying I am actually a good, man. I simply have to do better for myself. Then I have to do better for my woman. I have to do better for my children. I have to be better for my nation. And my people I have to do better for us. We have to do this now. So we can't rely on black on white people. No more. And I definitely can't blame the white man all day when it comes to the circumstances in my community. I know what part he plays in it. But what part do I play any put the damn gun down stop selling drugs. Stop abusing your woman because you can't blame it on him. No more. Yes. A lot of black men today are as the honorable minister Louis Farrakhan, said white men in black skin. And why did he say that? He's saying what was done to us by them. We are now perpetuating on one another. And that is not something that we need to be doing. So yes, we need to definitely learn our history and come back to the understanding and the knowledge itself, which is we are righteous by nature. Goodbye. Nature useful by nature. Beautiful people by nature, we need to return back to our nature and stop going into a nature that was given to us and start on us and injected into us by somebody other than ourselves. Red pill red podcasts on listen as we're gonna finish this up. Yes. I want people to listen to what they heard today me and brother Reza agree on everything.

"Welcome to the Friends of Israel today I'm Steve Conover over and with me is our hosting teacher Chris Toca this past week. Jewish. People honored the saddest and most solemn day on the religious calendar Tishkov today on the program we're going to explain how and why the Jewish people honor Tishkov and how it applies to the life of the believer. Now, you might be thinking I. Don't WanNa hear anything. Sad there's enough sadness going on around the world I'll give me something. Good. Give me something. Happy something joyful. Well, you know what tissue is something that I think is important for a believer to understand because sadnesses a part of life and we have to know his Christians out to understand sadness and. How it should draw US closer to God. So I think this is going to be a great episode. I hope you stick around to listen. Also don't forget to visit our website FYI radio dot org to keep up with everything that's happening with our radio broadcasts. Also, while you're there at Foia Radio Dot Org, you can click on a link to. Register for are anchored.

Org, and there you'll have access to all eight sessions as well as this. I'm happy to let you know you'll get a free pdf book of Elwood mcquaid's there is hope that's O. Radio DOT ORG. But first in the nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is receiving more attention than usual. Thanks to the black lives. Matter Movement celebrities have been attending his speeches and sharing his messages on social. Media. Farrakhan in his fourth of July speech said Jews hate him because he reveals their wickedness and Israel is the reason guns, drugs and counterfeit money are in the black neighborhoods. Farrakhan has a long history of making anti. Semitic remarks about Israel and Jewish people. Yeah. He is recorded a he has sound bites We have video of him making very anti Semitic. That's the hatred of the Jewish people very anti Semitic and anti Israel statements like you just read. Steve. But you know this isn't a surprise to me that that the black lives matter movement is becoming anti Semitic because really the issue is this anytime leftists. Are Controlling a movement it often turns into an opportunity for antisemitism and anti Israel sentiment. For instance, the Occupy Wall Street movement. If you remember that it blamed the Jewish people for their economic problems, the women's March recently was plagued with anti Semitic board members who were actually had to step down because it got so bad and now the black lives matter movement is taking the same path. Sadly, anti racism movements often foster anti Semitism which sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn't it actually always tends to go toward anti Israel and anti Semitic sentiments. So during this difficult time, please continue to pray for Israel and the Jewish people. The Jewish people have calendar they follow that strictly related to the feasts and festivals they honor throughout the year. You know I always like to say how sympathetic to the Jewish people because they not only have a religious calendar that they have to follow, but they also have a Jewish civil calendar they follow, and then on top of that, they have the counter that the rest of the world uses they have three calendars hard time managing one calendar. I could never imagine keeping three, but they do their religious, their civil, and then the counter that the rest of the world uses net. Now, the holiday calendar, the Jewish people follow has all of the biblical. Passover, the Feast of unleavened bread show, vote Russia, Shawna, Yom Kippur, and the Feast of Tabernacles. Those are the biblical festivals that can be found in Leviticus chapter twenty three. Then there is the celebration of Purim from the Bible. You can find that in the book of Esther that's on the Jewish calendar, but that does not appear in Leviticus chapter twenty three, but it is in the Bible and then. There's Hanukkah. Now that's not a biblically mandated festival, but that's one that took place between the testaments so that by the time Jesus is ministering and John, Chapter Ten, the Jewish people have made Hanukkah apart of their religious calendar to honor God's protection and provision over his people. Some Jewish holidays are full of celebration and happiness like Passover and Perelman the Feast of Tabernacles well, summer sombre days yom key poor. But today I wanNA talk about the saddest day. On the Jewish calendar I know I know you're probably saying Chris I don't need more sadness right now. Well, the reason I wanNA talk about this days because the Jewish people just honored a few days ago on July thirtieth. Now this isn't technically a biblically mandated festival or feast, but it does have biblical ties. The day is called tissue of Teasha is the saddest day on a Jewish counter because it commemorates the events that took place on Teasha. That's right. The name on the Hebrew calendar is actually the date on the calendar Teasha is the number nine. So it's the ninth day of the Hebrew month of of Teasha OBV- it's what took place in Biblical history that makes this so sad on the ninth day of the month of of Nebuchadnezzar the. King ordered the destruction of Solomon's Temple, the temple, which is the central place of Israelite worship in the Old Testament was destroyed and let me tell you folks. This is a true reason to mourn. It's because of Israel's perpetual Sin God gave permission for Nebuchadnezzar to destroy the holy place and this isn't just me talking as a Christian living twenty, six, hundred years after the event it's biblical God called Nebuchadnezzar, His Servant and Jeremiah Chapter Twenty seven for six. The first temple was destroyed and five eighty six. BC. Because of. Israel sin and this is a reason to mourn it. It was destroyed on Teasha odd the ninth of of and if that wasn't bad enough the Jewish people rebuild the temple and then Herod the great upgraded to make it. One of the most incredible temples in the Roman Empire Harrods. Temple is the one that Jesus and the apostles ministered in yet and seventy ad under the direction of Roman Emperor Spacey and he gave Titus the task of crushing Jewish people further revolts against Rome titus like Nebuchadnezzar leveled the Jewish temple. Again. This was predicted by Jesus himself when he pointed at the temple and said this in Mark Chapter Thirteen I, two, not one stone here will be left on another everyone will be thrown down, and here's what's fascinating. Titus destroyed Heritz temple. On tissue of the same day Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Solomon's Temple. Yes. This is a major day of mourning and sadness and to add insult to injury that they also includes these mournful events. The final day of Bar Buzz rebellious rebellion against the Romans in one thirty, five ad happened on tissue above the Jewish people in one thousand, five, hundred believed by coca was a messiah figure and he ended up of course, not being one. Jesus is the Messiah but his fall and the rebellion which ultimately led to Jerusalem's ultimate destruction and Israel being named Palestinia and Jerusalem being changed to a pagan city called Alia Catalina all of that happened as a result of what event that took place on tissue of. Again another one, the edict of King Edward the first compelling Jews. Of England to leave the country was signed on the ninth of of in twelve ninety ad. The Jews were expelled from Spain on that same day in fourteen ninety, two, World War One, broke in nineteen, fourteen on tissue. And even those in the Warsaw ghetto were transferred to Nazi death camps in Treblinka in nineteen, forty, two on tissue above it's a day of mourning for the Jewish people the major events, namely the destruction of the temples that define tissue of our biblical. Even the honoring of the day that was placed on the Jewish calendar dates back to the destruction of the first temple. When Zachariah, the Prophet actually talks about four fast days that would happen in remembrance of the destruction of the temple and it says this Zachariah chapter, seven verses three through five. It says say to the price of the House of the Lord. Of Hosts and the prophets should I weep and abstain in the fifth month as I have done for so many years. Then the word of the Lord of hosts came to me say, all the people of the land and the priest when you fasted and mourned in the fifth month and in the seventh for the seventy years was it for me that you fascinated? Now over time, so you can see in Zachariah there is a fast day a day of mourning that is connected to the destruction of the temple and five, eighty, six BC, but time marched on. Tissue. Started to lose its significance, the famous Talmudic Rabbi Judah Hennessy lived around one seventy, five ad he actually was in favor of abolishing tissue of altogether. Rashi another famous rabbi, wish that the four fast days dedicated to morning would become feast days during times of peace. The these aren't the first rabbis who wish to kind of get rid of the morningside of their faith. The sadness side of their faith Rabbi Hillel Very Famous Rabbi who lived around the time of Jesus was fed up with eating only bitter herbs during Passover meal the bitterness was too much to bear. so He created what was called the hill. Al Sandwich. That Jewish people eat during Passover where it actually combines the bitterness of the horseradish with the sweetness of this. Apple Mixture caught a heroux set because he believed that the bitterness of Egyptian bondage met with the sweetness of freedom and so he was tired of just the bitterness, the bitterness, the bitterness he wanted to add sweetness for freedom. So again, here's a rabbi that didn't want to deal with the morning side of his face he wanted to bring in some happiness enjoy. But back to honoring tissue I've as we move through history. The observance of tissue, Bob became more strict between the fifteenth and eighteenth century AD. But what's Austin known as one of the darkest periods in Jewish life? The rabbis say this he who does not mourn the destruction of Zion will not live to see her joy the rabbinical statement here it's it's pretty severe. It saying, Jerusalem, remains at the heart of the Jewish people and its destruction should affect everyone and what's amazing about the Jewish people is this thing about this is that when Jerusalem was destroyed and five, eighty six. BC when the temple was destroyed instead of simply blaming God for not showing up to protect them the Jewish. People did something which no other people group has ever done. They blame themselves they knew the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple was because of their spiritual apathy, their sin. So morning Jerusalem is important to the Jewish people because it's connected to their own spiritual condition. Today Tishkov is honored through fasting. Abstaining from work sitting and sleeping on the ground especially for the very orthodox religious Jewish people and only mournful portions of the scriptures are to be read during two Chaba OBV in the synagogue one lamp lights the whole room, and it's the book of lamentations that's red with the morning of Jeremiah as his Jerusalem fall by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar. Again this is a solemn time. It's time of mourning. We live in a culture today that shuns sadness hate the idea of morning I want us to look at. Tissue, Abbas a lens to ask ourselves as Christians is morning something that should be a part of the Christian life or not I. Hope you stick around the find them. We've been studying tissue of the ninth of of the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. You know there are many different Jewish events that happened on their calendar Passover, Yom key poor the Feast of Tabernacles. Hanukkah all of these amazing holidays are important to understanding the culture and customs of the Jewish people and not only Jewish people but also your Bible Your Bible is a Jewish book and all throughout it you find these Jewish holidays that the people of Israel were celebrating and that's why. I want to introduce you to a book that I personally used to study these Jewish holidays. It's the Feast of Israel by Bruce Scott. This book is going on, walk you through each of the different holidays at the Jewish people celebrate give you insights into the holidays, the historical reasons that they celebrate the holiday but also why it matters to you as a Christian, it's the face of Israel by Bruce Scott Chris.

By calling eight, six, six, four, two, five, eight, four again in Canada that's eight, six, six, four, two, five, eight, four. Welcome back everyone. The Jewish people just honored the most solemn sad day on their calendar. It's a Jewish holiday tissue above the ninth of the data Jewish people look back and remember when the Jewish temples were destroyed and mourn their loss, and that's what I wanNA focus on here for a moment the idea of morning. We live in a culture that shies away from sadness. And can even attempt to medicate sadness. But here we see something intitiative odd. It's quite astonishing to Jewish people embrace their sadness they embraced the loss they embrace the moments that we would often wish to erase from our memory. Point to hear what rabbi. Isaac. Cline. A Conservative authority on Jewish law has to say about this concept of Shebab he writes that the events of Tissue Bob cannot be undone and it's necessary to remember the tragedies to establish continuity with the past as a constant stimulus for repentance and good deeds. Folks did you hear what he's saying you can't erase the past that that moment in your life you wish you could rewind undo or that tragedy. That's always in the back of your mind Rabbi Klein says, it can't be undone. There's no time machine that's going to take you back to a race that moment but Klein says, these moments aren't for not. They aren't worthless events they actually should compel us to live differently. There's a continuity he says that should be connected and tissue odd gives us this picture that events that happened in the past have a connection to how we live today. There's a continuity that's there. You know the reason the temples were destroyed as I mentioned earlier is because the people of Israel sinned their sin was so grave that God's presence needed to leave the temple and you can read about that in Ezekiel, nine through eleven. Israel recognized their sin and instead of masking it instead of covering it up and acting like it never happened. Instead they dedicated a day to mourn to it. James reminds us of this and a new testament when he says this in James Chapter Four, draw near to God and he will draw near to you cleanse your hands you sinners make your hearts pure. You double minded grieve mourn and weep turn your laughter into mourning and your joy into despair. Listen, sins and the effects of sin should cause us to stop and mourn. Paul says it a different way. He reminds us of all the grave sins in the world and First Corinthians chapter six, verse nine he says, do you not know the the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God don't be deceived. Paul goes on to list those who practice sexual immorality those who are idolaters those who have committed adultery those who are thieves are greedy were abuse alcohol those who are verbally abusive those who are swindlers Paul says, they will not inherit the Kingdom of God and then to humble the Christian, who might think just a little too highly of themselves for not having those qualities Paul says this in verse eleven some of you as Christians some of you once live this way. I like what the Rabbi said about. Tissue Bob the day of mourning that it should force us to do some spiritual evaluation. It should force us to do some spiritual evaluation in our life. And the rabbi was right it should draw us into repentance. Ask God to forgive our sins. It's healthy to mourn our skin. It's healthy to evaluate our spiritual condition. It's healthy to look back at the past mistakes in our lives but all of those reasons to mourn think about this, all of those reasons to more and should be met in the person of Jesus Christ and the work that he did on the Cross for us Paul says some of you once live that way but you were washed you were sanctified and you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the spirit of our. God James Says More than your sin but then he says humble yourself and through that humbling God will exalt you I'm GonNa tell you something prideful people never find reason to mourn their sin. That's why James says humble yourself instead and it's there that God will exalt you my friends. Let's take a moment on tissue odd to look back on our lives as Christians and remember what life was like before we knew. Christ. Or maybe you're struggling with sin right now it's okay to mourn and grieve but then use that opportunity to draw you into repentance and through Christ, you will be forgiven by God's never ending? Grace. Now apples of gold a dramatic reading from the life and Ministry of Holocaust. Survivor speak. Alisher. Returned from one of my frequent army tours of duty. I took my family for a walk to the district of me as year. Inhabited by the most Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem. Several children were dancing around bonfires. We shall rebuild the Holy Temple. When I came close I noticed new testaments burning and the bonfire. I asked the children. Why do you burn these books? I said everything in this book is about the Living God and let's Dia. They. All shouted we must destroy. Burning these books is a Mitzvah which means a good deed. Suddenly, a bearded man came up and said, throw that book back into the. Fire. I said I will not throw this holy book into the fire. I will show it to a rabbi asking me fee permitted you to do this. As, soon, as I said this, the rabbi game. I opened the New Testament and started reading from it at. Random. The page to which I opened was Hebrews Eleven. I, read it aloud in all listened and when I finished the rabbi asked. Did you study these cheever? No his said book course. Then, I opened a Matthew Chapter Five, verse, Forty, three and forty four. You have heard what it was said your love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I said you love your enemies bless those. Of course you do good to those who hate you and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you. The rabbis looked at the new. Testament then shouted is a Guy Goi mean J- Gentile. I said, I only tried to show you what this book is all about here. You may have it if you still want to Burn A. He reached out to take the book but suddenly is hands started shaking. I asked, why are you shaking? Perhaps. This spirit of God is speaking to. You. These New Testament is the same old scripture of opened in Isaiah speak when he wrote and therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin, Shokhin Seve, and Barrett's ton. And show call his name Immanuel or this. For Unto Us, a child is Borton. UNTO US son is given. The government will be upon his shoulder and his name will be closed. Wonderful Counselor Mighty. God. Father. Prince of peace he who are burning the very faith you profess to believe. I am also Jew I said. But I believe with all my heart in Messiah. Through him I received forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Is Poor lamb started yelling Michou at Michigan beans apostate. This time the rabbi silence them and asked me. Are you still angry at me. No. I'm not angry at you. You're foolish sheep I just feel sorry. I gave him the New Testament and asked him to read it. This time he did not cast it into the fire. Would put it into its pocket a good. Lord can do. As we wrap up the program. We're so glad you chose to join us today Chris where we headed next week.
