Americans Shouldn't Be Proud of Only One Person
"This country now has one day in which it honors an individual, Martin Luther King day. It also had Columbus day, but that has been yanked by the left. So we used to honor Columbus and we used to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We only honor one person, Martin Luther King Jr., worthy of being honored. But not worthy of being the only person honored. They shouldn't be any one person honored. We should honor a number of people virtually every country does, I assume, to be an interesting question. Does France have any national holidays in honor of individuals? I don't know the answer, but it's an interesting question. Today then represents the decline. Of patriotism, you can not sustain a country if you do not imbue the next generation with patriotic feeling.
MLK, The Marxist?
"I know that this is holiday for many people. So I hope you're celebrating and eating barbecue and all kind of stuff on the holiday. I want to say happy Marxist Luther King day. I mean, Martin Luther King day, some people ain't gonna like that I called Martin Luther King of marxists, but was he a Marxist? Or was he not a Marxist? This show is going to be hot, so make sure you're ready and prepared. It makes you sitting down. I believe that Martin Luther King wasn't who we think he is, or he was. I think that the media has really recreated a scenario that's very similar to what they've done with the narrative of police brutality in America, the same narrative of Black Lives Matter. I mean, I'm telling you guys, I'm telling you, in 20 years, we're going to look back and they're going to say that Black Lives Matter was an organization that inspired change. It was the new civil rights movement. They're going to tell you that black people were getting gunned down in the middle of the street on by white racist police officers. And it was an epidemic. And that if it wasn't for people like Patrice Kohler's, then Byron Manson white neighborhoods that we would still be suffering from the effects of white racism.
The American Left Doesn't Have the Right to Celebrate MLK Day
"The American left has killed the dream that Martin Luther King Jr. had. And announced, and promoted, and shared with the rest of the country, maybe the rest of the world. They've killed it. And they've done so intentionally, which is why today, on Martin Luther King day, 2023, I am calling on every American leftist. Every American progressive. Every American liberal. To not celebrate MLK day because you don't celebrate MLK, the man. And his dream. You have intentionally killed that which he strived so hard to build.
Journalist John Solomon on Voter Rights and Suppression
"And I'm proud to present to you on Sebastian gorka's show John Solomon John welcome to the program. Great to have you with us brother. It is good to be with you. Happy Monday. Happy Monday. Here we go and happy Martin Luther King day. John. You're our go to guy if I may. And so would you explain to me the pressing is voting rights situation? You know, John, I didn't know there was suppressing votes in America. I didn't know I always felt as a person who just showed up and voted my fault was being suppressed. My vote wasn't counted because I wasn't one illegal. Number two, I wasn't dead yet. Despite what you might hear right here. Explain, explain to me, what is going on with this voting rights like they double that and they go to Georgia where they might very well have been shenanigans down there and I'm being kind in the 2020 election, but they doubled down. Could you break down what they want to vote for? And what they will end up with down in D.C., please. Yeah. Well, first off, the bill is in some dire trouble because there are at least four Democrats that are holding the line on it. Joe Manchin, Kirsten sinema, Mark Kelly and I'm thinking that the fourth one now just gave my mind. But they've got a little bit of opposition in their own party, particularly in these Democrats that are in the swing states. And so the bill may not happen. It may go the road of the BBB and some of the other Biden democratic plans. But the big thing that Joe Biden talks about being Jim Crow two is the idea that it is inherently racist. It is voter disenfranchising to ask someone to show their ID before they vote or descend in an absentee ballot. And this is an interesting thing because every poll that I've seen in the last year, including one, we did it just to know news says 70 80% of Americans support this. But there's a fascinating new poll out in Michigan. It surveyed Michigan voters who voted in the last election. And here is the ticker. African American voters, the very voters that Joe Biden says are disenfranchised by a voter ID. They support voter ID by Uranus, 79%. In fact, black voters were more strongly supporting of voter ID than all other voters

We just had and forgive me and I look at Martin Luther King day. I want to have some fun. We have some great guests, but I hesitate to do this every morning, but there is news that is unfolding, and to understand it as a look at the news before me. There was a gal that was like pushed to her death in a subway station in New York, and then Eric Adams, who we wish all the best for, by the way, the new mayor. You know, he's going like, he's going like, oh, well, you know what, it's maybe it's not as dangerous as it seems. It's just a misnomer that the subways that danger just kind of got pushed to her death. You know, how about in Los Angeles? You see this? And as you listen in LA, you know? In the town in the state where Larry elder will one day be governor. Hello. Oh yeah, you check it out. But there was a girl that girl in the furniture store to stamp. What's going on with the crime? The crime rate. And there's nobody in charge. No one in Washington. Nobody watching it. And at the time, my political beliefs, they say your conservative, I'm not more of an independent than anything else. I've had it with both party. I don't trust the Republicans. I don't think the Republicans are being strong enough, you know? My hopes are high for this year. Hopefully in November, we'll see a change in the House of Representatives, but my hopes aren't I, because once the Republicans get in, they just really don't do much. So I'm hoping that will
Would MLK Support Things Like Affirmative Action?
"Today is Martin Luther King day and we're going to be treated or perhaps subjected to the usual over the top tributes to king. Now I do admire Martin Luther King. I admire what he stood for. And I admire especially what he stood for in the critical part of his career. Early in his life, Martin Luther King was involved in some scandals, he was he had a plagiarism, scandal, for example, and he was in many ways a flawed man. I don't really need to go into that. He also became sort of radical toward the end of his life. He wanted a massive redistribution of income, he became a sort of, well, he became very close to a socialist, if not a socialist. But the one thing he never did was he never deviated from his central idea was that we as a country should be judged on our merits as individuals. In other words, in his own words, by the content of our character not the not the color of our skin. This was Martin Luther King's famous dream. This is why we have Martin Luther King day. That's what defined king. And the left now tries to imply that somehow king gave up that idea became an advocate of affirmative action, supported race based preferences. And none of this is true. In fact, I had to debate years ago with the reverend Jesse Jackson and you know this was at Stanford University. And I challenged the reverend Jackson. I said, 'cause he was like, I knew Martin Luther King, you see, he would have definitely been on board with affirmative action, and I said, well, quite apart from this kind of appeal to personal familiarity, can you point to a particular example where king does not support compensatory justice in a particular case, but a system wide nationwide system of race and ethnic preferences. Let's just say in college admissions or in job hiring or in government contracts. Absent a showing of actual discrimination show me where king advocated that. And of course he couldn't do it so he resorted to his usual deflections. Iambic pentameter, you know, those famous clearing of his throat and

Every couple of years. I'm right here. I tried to pass it off. Just seems like I'm always working right around the probably because of Martin Luther King Day. They have the games and I'm working. You see on that Monday, So we talked about it a lot and should be fun should be a lot of fun football. I heard the guys on the previous show and they're talking about is Today. His championship Sunday, a better football day that Super Bowl Sunday. I think it has a solid chance. I'm mean both of these games. We're going to be a really, really tight they could be raising partly all the stories going into it. The oddsmakers think there. They've got 3.5 for the For the Packers Bucks game and a lot of people are saying that do you get Tom Brady? A guy that's been toe nine Super Bowls? You're gonna, you know, not take him getting points, getting 3.5 points and then the other game is just three points. And I don't know if that's going to change it all as it gets closer to game time because Patrick Holmes is going to play and cleared concussion, calling all that No. You figured he was going to and So as you be fun, and I'm glad it doesn't start till two. Because then we can We have time to get home to leave here and down at noon takes me about an hour and 15. I'll get home settle in. I was thinking about just having some snacks and stuff like that, And there's a snack that I haven't had in a long time. When my body's not used to drink beers. We still drink beers. But back in the day when we used to drink there, that's kinda like the Mitch Hedberg line. Mitch Hedberg used have a line saying I used to do drugs. Still do drugs by used to also well, thank you know it's accurate. Yeah, well, not anymore. It's not one that for him, right? So, so my buddies concept so we would go out. But we would get like a case of beer and two or three orders of Fried mushrooms from Brown's chicken. Remember those? They're still have him If you can find out where you could check it, Browns. That's the only thing there's like three of them. There's one in downers. There's one in Naperville, which I will be going to later on today, and there's one somewhere else take care of her little bit further South. There was one in Oakland for years. My brother worked there. And that's when I never went to Brown's because you know your brother, my brother. Yeah, I wouldn't want my brother to want anything your brother's making No. No, I never go to his house Just about 35 years ago, Lou. It's all nice and clear Now I'm just saying, But yeah, there was one in Oakland Might still be there. Yeah. Bye. And so I'm thinking on the way to where I'm going is like you know what I can stop and get a couple orders of browns, You know, fried mushrooms. Maybe a beer to a woman with would really approve of that, right? Well, probably not. He actually sent me a message. I made eggs and made a breakfast the other day, and it had spinach. And some some green peppers and stuff like onions. And he said, Now you gotta do is, um he liked that He actually said very good job because just work on some of the port. He wants to make sure everything's organic and, you know, I gotta make sure they're all our guests actually meeting my wife and we've been together now for about 10 years. She's always been very focused on organic, so I have I have been eating better for years now and just this morning eggs with peppers and spinach and all that you must get up early. I did I did, and she gets up makes breakfast. It's awesome. But going back and eating some of the greasy stuff and I'm not going to name what it is. But the real tasty, fast food, greasy stuff. That messes me up because I have been eating higher quality food healthier, so I can't. I can't really go back, which is not a bad thing, but sometimes you want to go back because it's just really, really good. At least in your memory. Well, throughout the course of the show. If you want to jump Pan is there one Is there one food like that? That you would just say, man. I wish I could just have that to sit and watch the game minds the fried mushrooms from browns and I've got time because we're off at noon the game to start til two. I have time to run the Browns in Naperville. Well, we'll take that report next week. I'll pick up a couple orders arounds, you know, fried mushrooms. But is there anything else that you're thinking about that you haven't had in a long time? That would be perfect to sit down and watch the game with us? Today's game. Great game. There's gonna be a lot of Ah lot of football today. The ball should be really good games. Brady against you got the old guns. You know you have Brady and Aaron Rodgers. They get the young bucks every calculated their age together. I know it's less than him and breeze. Yeah. Just last week. It was like, you know, 84 years to find or whatever s O might be like what 87 graduates like 36, 36 or 37. So you got 36 42 or 40 Three's right there in the 79? Yeah. So the we'll talk a lot about those games. I had the Bulls last night. Plus 9.5, and at halftime, they were losing 63 33. 63 33. Now the line changed they were giving you points back was giving you 27 a half points with the Bulls for the second half. The Bulls only last 11. So if I were to taking that I want to I could have. But you didn't know I just stayed with the 9.5 and the Bulls lose by 11. So just Hitler's 2.5 points is all I needed that Zach would have been nice. Whatever. Three. Yeah, Just 13 will not ask. You think about it. They came back from 30 down to lose my only 11 so well, if you did that much, what's another three? Exactly? That's kind of what I was thinking. There's a lot to discuss.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy
"Today is Martin Luther King Day a day when we look back on Dr King's commitment to nonviolent civil disobedience to advance civil rights and reflect on his famous 1963 speech delivered here in D, C. I have a dream. A little Children. One day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin. But by the content of their character, I agree. Following last year's death of a black man, George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer and this month's deadly attack on the U. S Capitol by supporters of President Trump include including far right extremists. Is Dr King's dream still alive? Well, joining us now to talk about that Maya King with politico who covers politics, race and campaigns. My It's always good to talk to you. Thank you so much for joining us today. Hi. Thanks for having me. What might Dr King think of the protests going on today? How far have we really come on racial issues as we mark his birthday. I think it's king were alive today he would be able to draw a number of parallels between his time in his experience and activism and what we've seen really over the past 12 months, with massive protests and civil disobedience, calling out Systemic racism and police violence on But of course, the current threat that we face of violence largely led by white supremacist groups, who have felt largely emboldened by a number of Government leaders of these are things that Martin Luther King also warned us against, and said that you know if America really did continue to try to advance on the platform or legacy of racism and racial terror. That that could cause issues for more than just racial minorities. But the broader community that we see across this country and I think that's especially evident, of course, looking at just how tight security is around Wednesday's inauguration.
"martin luther king day" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"On this Martin Luther King Day. Um, interesting thoughts I've been watching, you know, reading on social media what people have to say. Way we agree and disagree about things is funny. Social media makes me laugh the anger and people that then get indignant about anger. One of the things that was pretty consistent about Doc. Dr King was His desire for peaceful protest, and there is a difference between being peaceful and being meek. I don't think anyone would say that Dr King was a meek man. He was humble, I think, but I think he was passionate about what he was doing. A couple of things about the civil rights movement that always struck me. I grew up in the South was born in Cleveland, but I grew up in the South. And so I witnessed what would be considered institutional racism or just maybe societal racism. There were unwritten rules where I was when I was a little kid. But I also played sports and on the athletic field. There was no racism. Honestly, I was I was, It was such a dichotomy that I watched, um How it didn't matter. How? What cover you were. If you were the best player on the team you played I've mentioned before being teammates Pop Warner team mates with Deon Sanders and Watching that young man watching that kid turn into the superstar that he became the Hall of Famer that he became, um and how well respected he was on the athletic field. And then I watched some disrespect off the field. It was pretty amazing. But what I learned from the civil rights movement and from the way Dr King did things was he saw things more as much is of a Christian duty is a pastor. As he did as an African American man. And what I mean by that is his disappointment that there weren't other white pastors in the South to join him. Um He was disappointed in them because of their faith, not because of their skin color. And I remember the battle. Why was too young for the civil rights reading about the civil rights movement? I was born in 1967. So I saw the aftermath and I didn't see the fight. But watching The fight within about whether there was going to be violent protests or whether it was going to be peaceful protests and there was the Malcolm X Group that that thought violence was going to be the only answer that if you are peaceful, nobody listens. But also if you look back At what the symbolism is. It was a horrible time when people were marching peacefully, and they were bit by police dogs. They were bitten and chaste. They were they were knocked down. And severely injured many times by water canyons from cannons from fire trucks and The other thing was the growing number of white people that were marching with them that it was very difficult in the South the way it was to break ranks like that, and to stand up for what was right, and there was more and more people that began to do that. And they saw the horrible treatment and remember this wasn't just about people's hearts. This was about the laws, you know different water fountains, different restaurants, different hotels. And to see the changes that we've made over the years because of the changes that were made by that movement were pretty remarkable to me. We have a long way to go in this country. There's no doubt anybody who thinks that we're all just fine. And there's no racism doesn't exist in the hearts of people are wrong. Um, but maybe on a day like this, we can pause to see how far we've come. You know, to have a guy. Like Ray Charles, who had to ride in a different bus, who had to stay in a different hotel who couldn't play in some of the same clubs. But then the state song Georgia is his version of that song all these years later, and what an honored person he was before his death. Um It happened because there were people that were willing to stand up and say Enough is enough. And You look around it at some of the things we ought to be proud of. On a day like this, where we're recognizing changes in the racial makeup and how we see people. Um, One of the shining examples here in our city is our police chief. She e think that she's the right chief for the right time for a lot of reasons, But this is a girl that grew up in Phoenix. She became a police officer in Phoenix. She worked her way up through the command staff of the Phoenix Police Department. She left and became a police chief in another city in Oxnard, California for five years. Then she came back. And then she's the police chief. When all of these protests begin to happen, and having a conversation with her one day I said, You have a unique perspective. You grew up in African American girl in Phoenix. You are an African American cop in Phoenix, and now you're an African American police chief in Phoenix, and she said, Let me out of fourth. I raised two African American sons in this town. The celebration isn't because of her skin color. The celebration is because she is the right person to be. The people accept her is the police chief. She wasn't hired because of her skin color. She was hired because of a resume. That today is, you know that's what Dr King always wanted was people to be judged for the content of their character? Not the color of their skin. We are seeing more and more of that,.

"Today is Martin Luther King Day. And it's a time to remember and celebrate the work in life of Dr Martin Luther King. It's also an opportunity to reflect and acknowledge where we are as a country right now. Incredibly powerful day every single year. But today, after what we've seen and experienced, it feels even more significant, it feels even more profound. The moment calls for an even greater accounting and acknowledgement off how much further we really do have to go. As Dr King famously said, And I quote in a sense, we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check when the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. They were signing a promissory Nord, to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men yes, black men is was white men would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note. In so far as her citizens of color are concerned. End of quote. One half a century later those words ring is true as ever. Dr King set out a vision of civil rights and social justice. It was a challenge for this country to live up to its ideals, and there's still plenty of work to be done, as he said, quote. But we refuse to believe that the Bank of Justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. End of quote. So if we are to be the people That we say we are. The country. We believe we are We have to cash that check. 1 806 368686 is your telephone number. Looking ahead to our number three. I would start off by having a conversation with a senior MBA writer for Sports Illustrated. Howard back. Also, it's a Monday so it is in a teepee days.

"To hear his son. Cries from his son pleading with his dad to sit down. His dad did not have a weapon on him. His dad had his hands up. Yes, his dad was walking towards police. His dad was not a threat to the officers. These officers should have known that he was mentally challenged because they had been to his house before. He's an elderly man who was mentally challenged, shot and killed by a white police officer right in front of his family. Now what would have happened if that gentleman was white? You think he would have been treated the same way? What would have happened to Philando Castillo? If he was white? What would have happened to Brianna Taylor? If she was white? What would have happened to George Floyd? If he was white? Don't you sit here and tell me races in a factor in some of these officer involved shootings because I believe it is now. Is it a factor in every shooting? No. And in fact in some of these shootings and the majority of them The officers are right for what they do, But in some of these shootings, they're wrong and it's murder. Now Patrick Warren is dead. And I would argue he's dead because of the color of his skin. This was a mentally challenged man. Police had been there before. And there's video showing that people who are trained to deal with mentally ill people were able to take this man in and talk to him and everything was calm. But this white officer decides to take out a gun and fire several bullets into his chest. And now he's dead. And you want to talk about a traumatic experience as the sun and the sister and the daughter are pleading for their father to sit down, pleading for the cops not to shoot him with a gun. But the cops did anyway, where they in fear for their life. I don't think so. I don't think so. He had no weapon on him. And listen. I've talked about Jacob Lake before Jacob Lake is a different situation. He was scuffling with police. He's a criminal. He walked. He was not obeying the officer's orders. He walked back into his car don't know why, with his three kids in the back seat now, I don't believe he should have been shot seven times in the back, but he certainly you could make the argument is certainly put himself in that position and did it to himself. While I do believe that police officer should have been charged. You have to comply. So there's two issues here that we're gonna talk about. It will take some phone calls on the other side of the break about this the number to call 7022575396. There are two major issues when I talk about Law enforcement and I talk about police brutality and the relationship police between police officers, minorities. There are two things that need to happen here. The first one, I think is pretty obvious and that is you have to comply with police officers, and there's a lot of people out there that are very angry lot of African Americans out that are very upset. They pull back on that they say. Well, Brian, just because we comply doesn't mean that we're not gonna get hurt. And you're right. But I guarantee you the statistics prove that if you comply, and if you listen to what police officers tell you to do you have a much better chance of getting out of there unscathed. Then if you don't Knock. There is never a reason to not comply with a police officer, especially when they have their guns drawn. So that's number one. But then we go to the other issue, which I also I'm on the board with when it comes to the Black lives matter Movement, which is this There are bad cops out there Do I think the majority of cops are bad now, But if you listen to the Sean Hannity's of the world, he says that 99.9% of police officers are good cops. I don't know where he gets a stat from from like that. But I would say that's not true. Yes, the majority of police officers are heroes. Yes, The majority of police officers are good, but I'm not going to throw around a 99.9%. Situation. I'm not gonna do that pact. We had one of our own metro police officers that was at the protest a week and a half ago that might have broken the law. Some serious crimes might have committed felonies. I'm not going to sit here and say 99% of officers are heroes, and they're great. I'll certainly say the majority of them are but this 99% figure again. Sean Hannity is not the kind of guy that's ever been pulled over for no reason. Because of the color of his skin. Sean Hannity is an extremely wealthy individual. Sean Hannity hasn't been followed around in, you know, in a store because of the color of his skin. He hasn't been pulled over for no reason has have guns ever been drawn on Sean Hannity getting pulled over for going five miles over the speed limit That hasn't happened to Sean Hannity. But again, people like that are the same people. Defend these officers when it's indefensible. Completely indefensible. So here's my question to the listeners right now, and I promise we'll take some phone calls on the other side of the break. Which is this on this Martin Luther King Day, which is a very special day, and it should be for all people, but a lot of people. What do you think Martin Luther King would say about where we are in this country right now. What would Martin Luther King say about the racial divide? The black lives matter? Movement police brutality. What would you say about that? What would you say about Donald Trump? What do you say about the political divide? That's my first question. And my second question is, have we come far enough as a society? Do we treat minorities fairly or is there still major racial divide? In this country. Those of the two questions I'm asking our listeners right now I have a few phone lines open. Now is the time to call because I will take all your calls. I want to hear from you on this very special day, which is Martin Luther King Day. The number to call if you want to be a part of the program is 702. 257 5396 again that number If you want to be a part of the show, 2575396 what would Martin Luther King say? Where we are today in society as a whole, with the racial divide with the Black lives matter, Movement and with the presidency with Donald Trump. What would Martin Luther King say about that? And do you think I'm over? Exaggerating? When I talk about the issues facing minorities in this country? Do you think minorities are treated fairly? Have we come far enough in this country? Again that number to call to 575396. I want to hear from you will take your phone calls on the other side of the break. You are listening to the Vegas take.

"For those of you that are underwear today is Martin Luther King Day. His I have a dream speech. Martin Luther King. Of course I'm talking about August 28th 1963. And we all know the trials and tribulations that African Americans minorities have had to go through for hundreds of years. As this country. For lack of a better term. Has this country come a long way? Sure. But if you're one of those people that doesn't think that systemic racism exists out there. It's either you're completely complicity and ignorant or you're a racist. It's one of the other. We need strong leadership in this country when it comes to race relations were different attorney since I've been alive and I've been around for 40 years, we have more racial divide in this country than I could ever recall. I think there's a lot of reasons for that. I think people are ignorant. There's going to be a small population of society that are completely racist. You're not going to change their minds. I'm talking about the Klan. I'm talking about white supremacists. There's going to be hateful, ignorant people out there. And yes, I know what you're thinking. Well, Brian aren't the racist people on the other side, too. Yes, there is. But I don't know what it's like. To be followed around. In a WalMart because of the color of my skin, people thinking that I'm going to steal something. I don't know what that feels like. I've never been in that situation before. I feel sorry for anybody that has Don't really know what it's like to be pulled over because of the color of my skin by a police officer. And I've had some run ins where I've been pulled over for no reason, but it wasn't because of the color of my skin. I don't know what it's like to have to go through something like that. I've seen it with my own eyes. Some of my friends. Or black. I've been in the car with them on occasion where I've seen them get pulled over for no reason. What would Martin Luther King say about that? Don't know exactly what he would say. But I think he would say we have a long way to go. We need to keep fighting. But we're not going to do anything as a country and we're not that things are not going to get better if we continue with this divisiveness. Yes, I think it's a good thing that professional athletes are voicing their opinions. Yes, I think it's so I don't have a problem with them kneeling or any of that stuff, But we need action now. And the people a lot of those people that around the right radio and TV who want to attack the entire black lives matter movement. You're providing a disservice to all the good people out there that are doing it for the right reasons. Yes, I understand. A small percentage of those in these protests. These black lives matter. Protests that have committed violent acts. They've burned buildings down. If attacked police officers But the majority of those people throughout the country are good people. Just like when we hear about what happened A week and a half ago in D, C. Never have I ever said that if you voted for Donald Trump, or if you're Donald Trump supporter that you're a racist. I've never said that. Never have. I said the majority of those people that were in D. C a week and a half ago. Are violent terrorists or criminals. I've never made statements like that because it's not true. And I try to say things that are true, and I try to back up my opinions with facts. The fact of the matter is white supremacy exists out there, and we saw the week and a half ago. Yes, there were violent criminals that these black lives matter Protests There's no question about that. What would Martin Luther King say about these black lives matter? Protests well. Could just give you an example right now, in the last week what we've had to deal with Minority. An autistic teenager died after being restrained by sheriff's deputies following a violent episode between the teen in his dad. Now his parents are suing the department, Donald Lou and Darren Parsa have filed a lawsuit. It was race involved there don't know for sure. But it's difficult to watch. And then we talk about the case of Patrick Warren. Have you heard about Patrick warn? He's a man. Who has some mental health issues who was living with his family who was fatally shot. By police last week. Completely unarmed Now was he listening to commands by police officers? No, he was mentally ill. But you could see impartial, partially seeing the video. His hands are up. I want to play this audio for you, and it's very difficult to hear. What I mean by difficulties. It might be. It's traumatizing to listen to this, but a man is getting shot and getting killed. Ah, mentally. You know? Ah, a man who is mentally challenged. Let's put it that way. Police knock on his door, He comes out slowly. He was walking towards police. No weapon clearly in his hand. His family is watching. You'll hear his son pleading. Don't shoot him. Don't shoot him! His son, the cries in the background. It's tough to hear. But this is a black man that was shot by a white police officer. I want you to listen to this. And maybe you'll understand what I'm talking about. And why this black lives matter. Movement started. Have a listen to this. Hey, Hey, you two. Sit down,.

"Pardons between now and Wednesday. And on the death toll of the pandemic. We're gonna hit 400,000 today. But a little bit of good news. Hospitalizations are down 1700 from yesterday. It's also Martin Luther King Day. And that is no small holiday here in United States as we celebrate Martin Luther King and 1968 If you remember he was assassinated in Memphis, way way too early a life but I want to go back in history and tell you about something that you don't know happened. And that was 1958. September 20th, and it happened in a Harlem department store. And at that point was Saturday afternoon there, Woz, Uh, this gentleman, uh, this L. Howard, who was a cop? He was 31 years old. He'd been a cop. For three years. He was in a patrol car with a rookie. He had met that day. A call comes over the radio. And the radio says there is a disturbance at Bloom Steins department store in Harlem Harlem, so they arrive and there's chaos in the second floor. And they're at the center is a man in a dark suit and tie sitting in a chair, not moving one muscle stone still That was the Reverend Martin Luther King. He was 29 time. And there was a letter opener jutting out of his chest. He had been signing copies of his book stride Towards Freedom about the Montgomery Voice boy a bus boycott when a young woman approaches him and just stabs him right in the chest with this letter opener And there was an advertising executive who was with Dr King at that time for the Amsterdam News of Black newspaper grabbed the woman restrained her until the security officer took her. And, uh politicians looked on that were there as another woman who was fearing for the life of Dr King reached the pull out the blade. And one of the officers, knowing that he might be saving more knew the king's life from bleeding to death stop during time. And L. Howard, the cop says in those days, we didn't have a walkie talkie thing. Only radio we had was one of the patrol car. Once we left that communication was cut off. We were on our own. And so at that point, l. Howard tells someone who's working there. Take me to a telephone. I called Harlem Hospital. Send an ambulance. I have a man who's got a knife sticking out of his chest. What do we do? The doctor comes on the phone says Don't take it out. We're going to send an ambulance right now. And Howard said. There's a big crowd of the front door. Send the ambulance to the back door. Well, the ambulance shows up at the front door. So Al Howard announces that we're going to take Dr King out through the front door. Asked that a path be cleared, it was because this time there's a crowd and the word is out that it's Dr King. This is Harlem. He's very well known, and he was taken to Harlem Hospital. Where a team of doctors work to pull the blade out from his chest. 40 people outside the operating room offered to give blood and the doctor said to reporters that the blade had impinged on the aorta was just touching the aorta. And had it gone. I mean, just micro militant meters further. All right. He would have bled out an instant death. So who was this woman who stabbed Dr King? It was just a crazy woman. Nothing to do with politics or racism. It was just a crazy woman who believe Martin Luther King was following her. And others. And the cops charged. You're with the stabbing. S O. Dr. King spent weeks in New York, recovering Hey, talk to reporters said first, Let me say I feel no ill will towards Mrs Currie, who stabbed him. And know that thoughtful people will do all in their power to see she gets the help she apparently needs if she is to become a free and constructive member of society. So let's forward. Years later, 10 years later. Howard rises in the department, not because of anything of blumen stains with Martin Luther King that sort of disappeared. Actually his personal file. The first commendation would be for arresting a guy with a gun. So in 1968. All right. Howard walks into a sandwich sandwich shop in Harlem and their Martin Luther King. Sitting with three people in the table. I was looking at me he was looking I hey was looking at me. I was looking at him. And I watch across the stories that do you remember me? And King said. I know I know you. I can't remember from where And, uh, Then they went through the story and King says all of course I remember you. Um and it came out in New York times that day. King is telling this to Howard that if I had merely sneeze, I would have died and he kept on saying that if I had sneezed, I would have died. And he then concluded the conversation with Al Howard saying, I'm so happy I didn't sneeze. The next day, Martin Luther King was shot to death. Coming up. Do they have a case?

Jay I know you wanted to say something here because of what this day means to so many people. Yeah, you know, even as a young black male Martin for King, Dr Martin Luther King is somebody that's been spoken to me about. Since I've been a young boy and just as where we are today in 2021 the year that we just went through with the pandemic and social injustice. No, he did have one quote that I think is very important to kind of embrace and continue to push forward And because it's a mindset, I think this mindset is important for everybody as we try to come more together. As a country as world as a people s So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow I still have a dream. I think this quote is so important to everyone because it says that fighting is worth fight fighting for. Right. It's it's worth the fight. It's not easy to stand out to speak your mind and to fight for what you believe in. Athletes have heard things like shut up and dribble and mentalities like that are difficult. In today and tomorrow. But if athletes continue to speak their minds keep topics at the high end of conversations. Change will come if we do battle difficulties of today and tomorrow, the ultimate dream. Hopefully continue to be reached. But that's the mindset that we have Zubin and I think facing everything hearing athletes speak out hearing people utilize their platforms standing up for what's right. As a people eyes the direction that we need to continue to push forward in today's life, You know, I don't get enough of anything in terms of the history of Dr King and in the civil rights movement. Obviously, I was born after the fact. And and so you just learned Every single day. In fact, I was even teaching my kids as we sat and watched him things last night as you continue.

Jennifer's here Bruces hang, and we got if you want to call in to give us a call, But right now that come dance with me what people don't understand. And as I do my research for this program, which is a a joyful task the morning get into about Frank Sinatra. The more I thought I knew about Frank Sinatra is just mind numbing to me and come dance with me. That was his most successful album. And it was 2.5 years on the billboard charts. And they this was one of the reviews because the old man, Mr Sinatra, one thing I remember as a kid growing up in the Bloomfield, New Jersey, and then up in Essex County, New Jersey, And then Frank Sinatra was like really so admired in the Italian American community, but I need never got I never heard a nice word written about him. I never did. It was always connected with this person or we did this. Well, he did that and all we knew was how great and how awesome he was. So I've revisited a lot of the things that I used to watch. As a kid with my parents as I was listening to Jimi Hendrix and that they've caught five in the Beatles and the animals and the Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra just plowed through it all and was and I'm telling. And so here's a review. This is it's a Sinatra Swagger's his way with effortless verb through an appealing collection of bouncy standards, aptly described in the album notes. As vocals that dance Grammy Award he got He got the Grammy Award, and Billy May got a Grammy Award, and that's Frank Sinatra. He was always there, so I'm so proud to be on here, you know, in the name of certainly the Frank Sinatra family and with the chat out to Charlie Pignon and Sinatra Enterprises, we come here with the greatest respect. And I'll tell you what Also, I have to mention is John Katzman. TD's is our boss here and you know we could talk. We're gonna get to the music, but I have to tell you, it's a long story. I think I've hinted that before where we heard W ABC was gonna be for sale and someone said it to me at my station. So I said, I go to John John, you know W A B c The legendary 77 w N BC John do you know just to be respectful. But he wrote a check to weeks later was just a simple is that I was going to do it, but I didn't want to deplete all my petty cash all at once. So jump cuts so now John said. You got to do the Frank Sinatra show, and I said, Are you kidding me? So I checked with the family. Everything's cool. Now. I walk in today to the studio and a Bruce is here and the riches here and Bruce says, Mr Katz Materials left something for you. As you know, Mr Sinatra's favorite drink. And pretty much Mr Sinatra's on Lee drink was Jack Daniel's baby. Oh, yeah, And they said, This is not a plug. This is not a sponsor. This is just you saying it the way it is. So I walk in, and Margo and Jon Katz of a TT's got me by and I hold in my hand as we speak. That's a Jack Daniel's big box of Jack Stand. Jack Daniels. It has a hat on it.

Congress Announces Willingness To Give Black Lives Matters Protestors Statue Or Holiday
"Weeks of nationwide protests bird by the police killing of George Floyd. Congressional leaders are finally taking action lawmakers in Washington today officially announce their willingness to give black lives matter protesters, statue, or a holiday or something for more. I'm joined by OPR Congressional correspondent Charles Dearborn Charles. Can you give us a little more context sure Leslie? We've seen sustained protests in all fifty states demanding. Demanding Accountability from those in power, and now Congress has heeded their call. Here's main representative Edward Knicks on how this all came to be. People around this nation are calling for dramatic change. I can assure you that we intend to meet this moment with the support. It deserves a nice memorial. Say or perhaps a national day of remembrance that Individual States can decide to declare an. An official day off work if they want. Wow, that's pretty impressive stuff. It is indeed if passed, it would be some of the most sweeping federal legislation to address racial inequality in decades. Nice to see them finally putting their money where their mouth is. So what stages the legislation at right now there is a bill currently being drafted, so the details are still being hammered out. Out One of the biggest decisions, obviously will be whether to give them a statue or a holiday. Here's an ex with more I want to say to my constituents in the country. We have heard your message. Loud and clear enough is enough, and we intend to show this building a statue of a white hand, holding a black hand or some black children, looking inspirational or something. But then again a day I probably wouldn't cost us as much. Maybe that's the way to go. That's terrific, so do we expect this lot of pass? Well? Of course, it will have to go through a Republican controlled Senate and several members of already been pushing to dilute the bill by providing only a small metal plaque, or just rolling the whole thing to Martin Luther King Day will these all sound like great options to me, but should we expect this to appease the protesters? Based on talking to several senators, the black lives matter members are going to be very excited about this big step, and this is probably the last will hear from them while and do we have any comment from any of these activists. Sounds good. Thanks for the report, Charles. That's OPR's channels Dearborn back with more right after this.

Everyone is still wrong about the Covington kids
"Classes over at Covington high school because of death threats because of bomb threats. No, I am not kidding. They've now had to cancel school today, and they had to cancel their basketball game which was scheduled for the next couple of days because of all the violent threats that are being made over a completely falsified video that the media pushed forward so the media over the weekend push for this videos. You'll recall from yesterday show, they push forward a video suggesting that Covington high school students surrounded an elderly native American Vietnam. Veteran and then began berating him yelling at him obstructing him. And all the rest turns out that was all ally. It was not true. The further video shows what happened is that. There were a bunch of black Hebrew Israelites cult members who were yelling, racial, sexual orientation slurs at the students, the students did not respond except by chanting their school chance at which point Nathan Phillips, this elderly native, American gentlemen, he decided to saunter into the middle of the high school students with some of his buddies pounding a drum and getting in the faces of some of the students the students did not react to that. And for this. The students were castigated they're now receiving death threats. There is eating bomb threats. They have been doc st-. I mean, I've spoken to a bunch of the students at this point. These are from my impression. Good solid kids. I see no evidence that they are racist. I see no evidence that they did anything egregious or wrong. And you're seeing commentary from folks on the left suggesting that one kid in particular, Nick Sandman, who's the one who you see in the video standing face to face with the native American guy that he was doing something wrong by smiling. So now a white guy smiling is race. Cest? That's how far we have come. So Martin Luther King day yesterday. People were talking about how a white kid smiling was racist. Because he happened to be wearing a maga- hat. You think maybe we've gone too far in this country in terms of polarizing people by way of race. It's pretty astonishing. We'll President Trump did the right thing yesterday. He tweeted out about Covington Catholic, he was he was watching Tucker Carlson show. Tucker did a great job of covering this issue last night on Fox News. And Trump tweeted out looking like, Nick Sanmen and Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgments proving out to be false smeared by media, not good but making big comeback new footage shows that media was wrong about teens encounter with native American at Tucker Carlson. That's great. I mean, I had recommended to the White House that President Trump actually tweet at Nic Sandman. Nice hat Nick wanna come to the White House. You remember Barack Obama did that with
