"We've got people saying it, and number two, we don't have the right people denying it. Correct. That's true. How do you feel about that? We've already discussed the conspiracy theorists. We don't know what's wrong with them. But how do you feel about people in authority when asked about it, choosing either not to answer or just refusing to say, look, it happened, they're wrong, end of conversation, but instead say, well, you have to understand their concerned about X rather than just hard stop it happened. Well, I think that's the easy one to explain. That's just straight made us don't want to lose votes. I mean, the long and the short of it is every politician is scared of death to lose in a job. It's a great job to have. It's a secure job to have. I assume most of your listeners would know the most of these districts are drawn on the way now to where it's very hard for the incumbent candidate to lose, it would seem logical just to say, listen, hard stop, like you said, Stoneman Douglas occurred, but they're afraid that if they utter just by ignoring it, they haven't gone on the record, although obviously not saying it, they're actually saying that it could be a possibility, but this way they protect their jobs. I mean, it's all about the votes just ensuring that they keep their job. So whoever is being threatened to the best thing they can do seems to be the norm now is just to scream liar liar pants on fire basically, like you're making it up, this is false. And in the case of man, I can't say it's definitively, but I think there's some veracity to it. In the case of Marjorie Taylor Greene, I might have helped her win her job in that district when she lives in. It certainly did not hurt her. Again, she's also gone on record as with things like QAnon, which believes that lizard people have infiltrated the government. She said a remarkable number of disturbing things while running. The voters knew who they were getting, which is probably a topic for another show. All together. I really want to ask you though, Jeff, on a personal level. And don't swear, but don't hold back. How do you feel about these people? If you could get them in a room and they had to listen to you, what would you say to them? I would probably talk about what we just spoke of like where I believe it comes from and if they can look at me and say hi and tell me that they're not just creating, again, this government boogeyman because they're afraid that they're going to take something that they covet that they love, then what is the reasoning, you know, I would just love to hear them and then after allowing them to tell me why on a personal note about why our school didn't happen or how we staged it to be able to tell that I'm exactly where I was that day, what happened that day, the people that I knew that day that I passed the funerals I went to, you know, these are all real things that occurred and the fact that I would actually have to mount evidence is amusing to think about that's probably what I would do. I mean, much as I'd like to go around the room and headbutt every single one of them and tell them what they're doing is so damaging to our nation, that would probably just embolden them to say, see, this guy is a place that he's resorting to violence now, so it's an uphill battle. That's for sure. It's sad that, again, these elected officials can't just say, you know what? We've seen enough evidence we've talked to enough people that this did occur. Let's stop this. Let's stop this nonsense that this mass shooting didn't happen. It really is just mind numbing that these theories persist that actually believe that we're just in it. We're going to honor the day and on the 14th of February. And I mean, they think four years later, we still just doing this just.

"It's maddening is what it is. You wish you could just get every single one of those people in a room and I don't want to curse, but basically say, you know, what in the F thinking here is the mother of a 9th grader that got murdered. Here's a brother of, here's a friend of the fiance of these kids here, wet themselves that day. I'm like, what are we talking about? You know, would you like to see the videos of the shooting? Do you think that was made up? I mean, it's astonishing that this still persists you're listening to inside mental health, a psych central podcast, where experts share experiences and the latest thinking on mental health and psychology. Here's your host. Gabe Howard welcome everyone. I'm your host Gabe, Howard and calling into the show today we have Jeff foster. Jeff has taught advanced placement U.S. government and politics at marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, since 2001, he's also a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, which took place on Valentine's Day, 2018, Jeff, welcome to the show. I appreciate you being here. And I want to get this out of the way quickly. Jeff, are you an actor who was paid by anyone to stage the Parkland shooting event and manipulate the public? No, I am that. I can hear the laughter in your voice and I showed you giggle because I taught a lot of the students that were accused of that and got death threats and had all these crazy conspiracy theories and thrown out about them. So I really shouldn't get going, but it is kind of funny when you hear that. And I remember vividly gave back when sandy hook happened the same thing obviously was going around and I would be lying if I said I didn't pause at the car but the government actually do that, but seeing it happen to us and having friends call me directly and say things like, is David hogg a real person or are you kidding me? But yeah, it's astonishing that that occurs that people believe that they would think we would go that far. I guess back to the moon landing all the way to the rats of shootings we've had over the last multiple decades here in this country. Yeah, it's wild. That's the word me and my colleagues say a lot. Everything that happened. I mean, it was tragic. It was difficult, but it just everything around it during just after the weeks after the months after, even the years after as we approached the four year anniversary, the wild assumptions that people have and just the made up stories that they have, it's incredible that these things are out there and it's even more incredible possibly that people believe them and take them as truth. It's laughable to reasonable people because it's ridiculous, but I do have a tiny amount of compassion for people who believe this because it's not just and I'm making air quotes wackos on the Internet that are making this stuff up. These things are being said by members of government, and I've got examples, Benjamin a Kelly was a district secretary for Republican state representative Sean Harrison, sent an email to the Tampa Bay times falsely stating that the children and the picture were not students at the school. He was fired, but not before the damage was done. And then former Republican congressman and CNN contributor Jack Kingston suggested student demonstrators were paid by billionaire George Soros or were supported by again quote members of antifa. And then in March 2019, eventual Republican representative for Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, was filmed heckling and harassing a survivor, David hogg, as he was walking toward the United States Capitol, and it's important to point out in the case of Republican representative Marjorie Taylor Greene. She did this in March 2019 and was elected anyway. This did not cost her the election literally mocking somebody who was involved in this. So when somebody says, I don't know. Is this made up? It's not like they're believing the dark corners of the Internet, they're listening to elected officials and people in power. Sure they are. I mean, even a lot of the Talking Heads in the various media outlets. If akin to what happened on January 6th, the series about the election fraud and everything else. I mean, it doesn't matter what anybody says. Our beliefs are set. They have places they want to go to to get their information and they take it as gospel basically and whatever insert reporter here says, that's correct. The scary thing about all this game is that none of these people say none of these people, but a lot of these people, as in the past, but we've always fact checkers and everything else. When you're dealing with the Internet, you're dealing with blogs. I mean, you can say whatever you want, and if you've got captive audience, they're going to believe you and said it's a long time ago to my class, and I still preach this all the time. No longer are we in an age where people are getting information that is getting affirmation now. They seek out people that have like beliefs or espouse, but they want to hear and they listen to them one day and wow, this person really, she gets me that becomes their go to news source, whether it's credible or not. I completely agree with the idea that people are just validating their own feelings with their news. And I'm sort of making air quotes with news because a blog is not supposed to be a news source, yet people believe that it is. But putting the focus back on you, how does it make you feel knowing that members of the government are literally calling you a fraud? It's disturbing. And I remember sitting at one of the funerals of one of the students in my school and getting death threats from random phone numbers. I had to report them to the FBI and I thought to myself like, you know, again, this is still four or 5 days after the event. So we're still sort of in that haze of what happened that it really happened. And my wife was like, are we in danger? I'm like, I don't think so, but it's like, wow, I just went through a school shooting where 17 people lost their lives and now we're targets of other people. It's quite astonishing. And then sort of answer your question to hear, you know, elected officials that were nowhere near the event, but in the case of Marjorie Taylor Greene, you know, one state away really our neighbor and my parents, ironically live in Georgia near her district and.

Perception that mass shootings and gun violence in america took a pause during the pandemic. That's absolutely not true. We're good violence. Killed twenty thousand americans last year more than any other year and at least two decades so this is a crisis that goes on and on and on there are a lot of people looking at solutions on the political front and in terms of changes in laws. But there's also a lot to be done in terms of thinking how the media covers gun violence in this country and how it can do better and how it should do better.

Biden calls on Congress to tighten gun laws in wake of mass shootings

"Democrats in Washington, including the president are calling once again for new gun control legislation after two high profile mass shootings in a week. President Biden says he would support a new assault weapons ban and universal background checks. Republican resistance has stopped that sort of legislation from passing. In recent years. There has been more action on the state level, though. And Nick Penzance toddler has been following these issues for U. S A. Today welcome to all things considered happy to be here. There's this common line that there hasn't been much new gun legislation since the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago, and that may be true at the federal level, but things look different in some states so Tell us about some of the most significant changes that you have seen at the state level right? He actually was truly at the statehouse level. There have been between 1,502,000 bills introduced every year over the last decade, maybe only a few dozen of those get past the prince's insistence Parkland in 2018. There been more than 100 and 50 of these gun control laws passed at the state level. So that's everything from expanding background checks to putting restrictions on who can buy Young's prohibited purchasers to these extreme risk protection orders these red flag laws where you can petition the court to take guns away from someone that is deemed dangerous, And when you look at the new state legislation does this fall out along pretty predictable blue State Red State lines or where is this happening? Yeah, it's really interesting. You see some of the bluest in the Blue States, California, New Jersey, Connecticut, Hawaii, New York. Who are routinely introducing new and strict gun regulations that often filter across the country. And then you see the predictable red states.

"I wanted to get back to the activism that you spoke about olaya and that you spoke about machines and in terms of telling your story and the power that that has and i'm wondering at this point you know after three years. Obviously there's been some changes to policies and procedures and things like that. But i'm wondering what are some things that you wish would have changed more and what are some of your hope for the future of bump stocks. Remember this away. They in florida after the shooting. So i thought oh great. We're in the right direction. And then the level governor decided that teachers should be armed just like the representative from georgia. That said oh good guy should fight with the bad guys with guns i. It's just that also is that's crazy. Who thinks of that. I just the the laws to be able to take guns away from people who shouldn't have them that that needs to be enacted in every state. I think there's not doing enough. They're not doing enough. It's much it's so easy to buy gun. I think they should also restrict the amount of bullets. And they're still look what just happened in florida with the fbi that were ambushed when they were serving a warrant. I don't. I don't know if we're really learning the lesson. This whole never again really needs to be never again. If we're going to do something about it but i think that fighting guns with guns is a hundred percent wrong yeah. My focus in my activism journey has now been primarily on racial equity in the protection of black lives in lifting black voices. Something that we know in. It's very apparent. This country was built on systems and institutions. That were always made to exclude black people in oppressed black people. So my focus in my goal is quite frankly to dismantle go systems in that directly relates to gun violence because we know that gun violence happens in our communities because of this cycle also plays a role in police violence which we know was a huge conversation in twenty twenty and we really haven't we haven't gone anywhere since what real change. Have we seen in regards to police violence since the protests and. We didn't even get justice for briana taylor's for right now. My focus is definitely uplifting. Blacks waste Indefinitely speaking out on the injustices that black people are still facing day to day. I'm at the same time. 'cause i'm also like jj in awe. So that's why. I'm really glad to allay that. You kinda share that even as we're doing all these things you're hurting and you're still healing and going to pain because i think sometimes it's easy to and maybe this is something we do as a country to make ourselves feel better but after things happen and people turned to activism. Sometimes it's easy to look at them. They're so strong. And you know it's easy to forget that activists who are working on issues are still human beings and still doing the work from a a real place. So i'm grateful that you shared with us you know even as you're doing all these wonderful things that you're you're a person you know this isn't just okay. Now i'm gonna whatever and i think that's a really important part of this of understanding how these things really impact people is like..

In fact, when President Trump asked me and other parents of Children that were murdered in school shootings to join him, as he announced the commission's findings. The media's first question wasn't about protecting kids. Shockingly, they asked about the government shutdown. President Trump turned to me a Pullman said, Andy, Can you believe these people were trying to talk about school safety and this is what they do. But I could believe it. After my daughter's murder.

"And then there are the traveling calls in the NBA or lack thereof. This Brad Beal journey didn't get called the rest later tweeting. This was legal the NBA's VP of referee training later telling date mcmenamin, this was a travel that play reminiscent of the non call of the year in the NBA James Harden's virtual trip to China on this play. But is this yours venom against the rest, the same old complaining or to something need to change? Talk more about this. Let's welcome in Jalen rose ESPN NBA analyst and host of Jalen went into Kobe show. Okay. Jalen, we always hear people complaining about calls every year. But is there something different about this year? Ryen is nothing different this year. What happens in the NBA in particular? Is there so many judgment calls? A here's what I mean. Those calls to happened in the first quarter versus the fourth quarter, the veterans they get the call versus the rookies how about superstar caused in. James harden period would step back dribble and his jump shot, especially when he takes an extra step or two traveling is also up for debate. So when there's so many calls that a lot of times people rooting for their team and players in the game this high motion, and they're taking place you're going to have those question in because they get play over and over again via social media. Plus, there's a two minute report that takes place in the NBA. Also does that have any effect on the integrity of the game? Now that this has become. More prevalent because of things like social media. Fortunately, for the NBA the state attend Donigi is always going to be there and people going to question the integrity of the officials, but they're the best in the business in normally do terrific job of calling the game. But you do see players being more demonstrative. You do see players complaining more as you see Kerr slamming a clipboard on what was a judgment call like sometimes when there's a question about the call. You'll see the reaction about the call be way over the top like the way Steve Kerr just responded, and I do believe that he was trying to encourage his team because it was a close game. They were on the role. They give twenty three points in the fourth quarter Portland was playing. Well, the words were shorthanded. No, Draymond green. I'm sorry. No, boogie cousins. No, Andrea dolla, Shaun Livingston. So I know he's trying to fire up his team. But that's act like he was standing there. And he didn't lead with his hip. He did Lee with his shoulder. So there was a question of intent right there. Okay. I know I come from a different era where I hope that's not a flagrant foul. But there is some question there, especially doing a forty eight minutes four players that do wonder, hey, something's gotta be done about this. Do you think there are technological advances? Coming is something the NBA should be doing thinking about. I think the NBA two minute report some like in some don't I'm actually a fan of it. You saw recently with Joel Embiid after the game against the Boston Celtics were Al Horford clearly filed him, and they didn't call it. He went to the press conference. He knew he was going to get a fine. And he said what he said about the officials and people always wonder why do players complain about the officials when you can't change the call is for the next one Ryan promise you I was at the game against your Philadelphia. Seventy six all know is they had twenty four free throw attempts at the Knicks Indy. First half and. The Knicks best players knots, then junior actually at fault for. Half of that game crowd of me to feed spears berry on this. When you play to the officials. They actually hear you when they were incorrect. I have no comment about that analysis. All All right.

"The parkland massacre. And that's the only way you can describe what happened that day. But we are just revisiting it and talking about some of the close to home experiences that people are having, you know, Iowa often tell the story because it is directly related in every way, shape or form. I remember when the sandy hook elementary school shooting took place and just the raw emotion that the country was was hit with because those those innocent children when mowed down in in that manner. And then of course, you know, many of us remember all the way back to Columbine where you had these two disenchanted youth also wreaking havoc in their high school. And you know, there's a there's a long list and shortly after the sandy hook events, my husband and a business associate of his came up with an idea and then. Working together with the person who had the sophistication to manufacture such an item. They came up with an insert that could be placed it had straps on it, and you could place it on the back of a chair, and you could use the you know, they had pockets in the back. So that you could put your folder your notebook in it a place for pens. So it looked very functional, and and it was very functional, and it was also a bulletproof bulletproof to a very high level and could be a child sitting in that chair would not only be protected while sitting in the chair, but all they had to do with slip their hands into the two straps. And then they would basically have a bulletproof vest on. They could wear it front or back, and the idea was that you could train children to get a behind this and squat down. And they would have a shield against an incident like this. Of course, they put it together at the time. Many people were inventing a backpacks that were bulletproof or shields of any kind. But I thought ours was one of the best in designs. And we put up a gofundme page, and we did all kinds of things and could not get any traction. And at one point my son who has a relationship with one of the school board members asked her to arrange for he and his business associate to go in with her two superintendent Runcie's office and show him the item, and you know, an an offer it to him for Browett schools. I mean, they could have outfitted every single school from k through twelve in Broward County for I don't know maybe two hundred and twenty thousand dollars every school would have had this. And they were they were told that they would never put something like this in the schools because. The the parents would become frayed. It would make children and parents nervous. And I will never forget the afternoon of the Marjory stoneman Douglas shooting thinking to myself. So what's worse, parents and students and teachers who might have felt a bit nervous or the grieving that goes on now that maybe some of this could have been prevented. You know, we have teachers in the state of Florida now being offered an opportunity to carry firearms into school. So I am a proponent of that I think it has to be managed very carefully. You don't want any buddy carrying in the school. But there should be some people assigned who are able to conduct themselves in a in a manner that is appropriate. We act. Actually have a school in Florida that's hired combat veterans because they know they are building the experience of being shot at and having to eliminate the shooter. And so one of the school principals, and I think Upper West upper northwest Florida has hired combat veterans at, you know, at a nice salary to do just that in a school. And I think that that is a brilliant idea. But I also know teachers who would be very willing to have the training and who already concealed weapons license holders and could circumvent some of this. You know, if one of the faculty members Aaron.

It was just it was completely exactly as I think he would want someone to handle it. Welcome to the show. I'm Dana lash. We are broadcasting from shot show in Vegas may have some fun stuff coming up at dealer. Sean Twitter official dental ash on Facebook so few things here. To get into because we have. Oh my goodness. I there's a lot still that was that excerpt from the today show, there's a lot still where it concerns the Covington stuff and media bias as a whole, and I I have to tell you. So my late friend who was a very dear friend and his family with whom I'm still friends, and who is also a mentor and my former employer. Andrew Breitbart before the poo storm that was Stephen Bannon. Andrew Breitbart who had I was initially early on one of the most outspoken strongest outspoken people were concerned media bias. And he absolutely hated. What media did two people hated it? And for all of these journalists out there who think that somehow what they do means that they are exempt from criticism that what they do means that they are above reproach. They are above judgment. They are above consequence when they do something unprofessional and reckless. That they have free rein to write whatever it is that they want to write about, whomever. They want to write about. This is the problem right now with the state of media. It has been like this for such a long time. It has been like this for so long. Let me give you a case in point here. I woke up this morning. I was mad. When are you awesome people out there? And I'm going to tell you the people in our listening audience y'all look out for me, and I really value. And appreciate you. What are you all had was already mad because of you all read this story that was written by this? Jessica. Slade back over at new York Daily News. And this Jessica Sladek wrote this story wherein, she. I said that I in that she was she did this this huge ridiculous page. She said that I had. Worked so hard to try to discredit the parkland kids that I wish that I had tried to discredit the parkland kids, and this is I've seen this. A lot us a lot in the wake of Covington people trying to argue this as a way to say that. To try to in some way. So that what they what they did what they did to the Covington kids is okay, it's allowable because look at this Dana lash over over who's a radio host. And I've done that before RA stuff, the NRA Steph has just a an addition to it. She went after those parkland kids, I somebody said that I doc s- to them the other night, somebody said that I did all of this. And then I had this new York Daily News, author, right? What she wrote? And I one of you out there sent it to me. And that's how I found it. What are you all sent it to me and said, did you see this? This is ridiculous. It's irresponsible you were angry, amber. And Florida was the one Ambert was livid. She was mad now I'm in Pacific time zone. She's east coast. So she was already. She was already up and do before me a couple of hours and had already read this and was was livid over it. And so I read this piece, and I was looking at it. And there was a specific graph that I shared and it said. It said the parkland survivors advocacy, for gun safety also earned the ire of the National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana lash who has repeatedly tried to discredit the parkland survivors has similarly taken to defending the Covington Catholic teens, so I reached out to Jennifer, and I want to let you know, something I am never gonna stop reaching out to Jennifer, I will haunt her every last damn day. This will not end this week. It will not in this month. It will not in this year. I will keep it up for twenty damn years. If necessary. Number one. I m petty number two, I never forget. And number three. I am tired of rat bastard media people. Now the last time I said that phrase some of them got their panties in a bunch. Do. You know, why I call them right bastard media people because this is the crap that they do. And if you think if anyone out there thinks that I don't have the right or any of these individuals who has ever been targeted by these people like the Covington kids that we don't have the right to be righteously. Outraged by the repeated malicious treatment falsehoods bias and accusations from these people who believe themselves to be beyond reproach, your high as a kite. In any other job? You would be sacked with this level of recklessness and irresponsibility in any other industry. You would be terminated. You would be handed a box your desk would be cleaned out. And you would be walked out to the parking lot by a security officer in any other industry that has standards of responsibility and ethics and morality, you would be expected to do your job to the best of your ability to do your due diligence and to make sure that no stone went on turned, particularly when making a claim such as this. But we're talking about the media industry. The media industry where people can ruin someone's life. With a simple accusation the media industry. We're so many people who are a part of this industry are living off the legacy of better work done by people who live before them. The media industry were they think it's it's a it's a pass to say, whatever you want about whomever, you want anytime you want. So me being me, and I have zero problem with asking someone to their face. I'm not confrontational. I'm just thorough. I asked her I said, I'm going to need you to prove this.

We were talking super serious stuff here folks gun control talking about these school shootings. Talking about the parkland shooting. What's happened here in Florida down south a little bit next month? I'm going to my cousin's wedding. He is marrying this girl. He's marrying a teacher, and she was a teacher at during this parkland shooting. She was there. They actually had her and her students on lockdown in the cafeteria. I've heard stories from other teacher friends. It was a scary day, folks. And I know we just read it on the news, and we feel safe when we read it because we're on our own homes are alarms are on. Nobody's around. We're not. We're not there. But this happened, and it is an issue we need to discuss. The park parkland shooting happened at stoneman Douglas as we approach the one year anniversary of the shooting which is February fourteenth. We we think back. I've heard all sorts of accounts from teachers they had to lock their doors, etc. Kids were snapped chatting it in real time. And if you don't know what snap chatting is. You are exactly what I'm talking about. You need to open up and realize there's another world out there that is real Snapchat. Of course, a social media that you'll have to post updates and somebody posted updates in real time. And then those updates go away. But, you know, of course, with the internet, you can save these things in somebody's saved it. So what I'm going to tell you is this going to get a bit uncomfortable here. And I want you to get uncomfortable with me. I want you. If you're not driving to close your eyes, you're driving just kind of focus focus on my voice here. You're in you're in school for some reason. Maybe you're a kid you back in school. You're learning.

And you think in the back of your head no way that was just a door that slammed. This can't be what I hear about all over this country. The gunshots. Get louder. You know, what's happening? Now. Your teacher knows what's happening. She immediately barricades the door. Because now we're learning how to deal with this. It's no longer. We have a hurricane or an earthquake or a natural disaster. Get under the table. No. This is our new natural disaster. Do you understand that? This is our new natural disaster. And those gunshots now sound like they're in the room next door. I'm gonna play for you. That snapchat. Audio portion there is a video that exists out there from that day. You are now in a classroom, and all of a sudden you hear this. Brace yourself..
