"There is now a call for the Pulitzer board to revoke the prize. A number of scholars And when I say scholars, these are serious people, brilliant people in their own right have signed a letter there part the National Association of Scholars, and they include a bunch of distinguished Professors and educators at various colleges and universities across the country who are saying it is time to revoke this prize from the 16 19 project and explore all of the things that I just highlighted. That Basically the criticism that the project has received has not led to open debate or inquiry or honest admissions of guilt and corrections. The types of things that people who have credibility dio but instead it has lead to lies is led to deceit is led to people intentionally hiding the fact that there were changes made. The author of herself lying about the changes in order to cover up her own failures of history. That is not the behavior of somebody who's deserving of being honored is the behavior of somebody who's trying to lie to her audience, And that is not That does not in their view rise to the level of deserving a prize from the Pulitzer board. So they're calling for the Pulitzer Prize board to remove this Pulitzer. Now I can say Mary, and I'm sure you'll agree. There's no way that's happening. The Pulitzer Prize board would rather kill itself, then remove the 16 19 projects Pulitzer, but for now, they're getting a tremendous amount of pressure from a lot of people who know a lot better than Nicole Anna Jones. Well, yes, it would be like the Nobel Prize Committee revoking President Obama's peace prize because they handed it to him for showing up because he gave an aspirational speech. It was a really great speech. You gave us hope for change, and so we gave him the politics. I mean, we gave him the Nobel Peace Prize. They're not going to revoke it. They're never going to admit that they made a mistake. It's just not going to happen. So you know it's going to sit on her shelf forever, and she's gonna wallow in it, You know, bask in it, rather not wall of a basket it and that's that, and I just think they need to take it out of schools and admit that this has failed that this is a failed I guess dance with rewriting history. By the way, some of these professors were calling for this our distinguished black professors on that's only relevant because Nicole Hannah Jones is now defending herself from this call that remove the Pulitzer. She tweeted yesterday that these efforts to discredit my work simply put me in a long tradition of black women who failed to know their places. It's racism. They're attacking because they're racist.

There is serious, you know, pointy headed elbow patches on the jacket kind of group. Ah, but and and let's face it scholars these days, like historians and other groups. I'm sure that they pretty much lean with left on most most things. I am not throwing a lot of weight to them because you know this is some objective, unbiased organization. In fact, quite the opposite that the fact that they're probably a bunch of lefty. College research types tells you how important this story is the National Association of Scholars, the headline of the article is Pulitzer Board must revoke Nicole Hannah Jones's prize.

The National Association of Scholars has agreed to host this public letter to the Pulitzer Prize board. The letter calls on the board to rescind the prizes awarded to call Hannah Jones earlier this year. I am one of the 21 signatories. Ah, Hard copy has been mailed to the Pulitzer Committee. As well as a digital copy copy. We call on the Pulitzer Prize board to rescind the 2020 prize for commentary awarded in Ako Hannah Jones for her lead essay in the 16 19 Project. That essay was entitled Our Democracies, Founding Ideals were false. When they were written. But it turns out the article itself was false. When written, making a large claim that protecting the institution of slavery was a primary motive for the American Revolution, Acclaimed for which there is simply No evidence. When the board announced the prize on May 4th 2020. It praised Hannah Jones for quote a sweeping, deeply reported and personal essay for the groundbreaking 16 19 project. Which seeks to place the enslavement of Africans at the centre of America's story, prompting public conversation about the nation's founding an evolution unquote note. Well, the last five words. Clearly, the award was meant not merely to honor this one isolated essay. But the project as a whole, with its framing contention that the year 16 19 the date. In some 20 Africans arrived at Jonestown James Caan. Excuse me ought to be regarded as the nation's true founding, supplanting the long Honor date of July for 17 sticks, which marked the emergency United States as an independent nation. Getting almost immediately after its publication, though the essay and the project ran into controversy, and they go on in this open letter to lay out all of the errors, all of the problems journalistically Ah, based on the Ah Basic standards that anyone would have with regard to researching a project like this, verifying the information, putting it in within context, basic scholarly activities, which you know would be a part of the wheelhouse of National Association of Scholars. They have reached the conclusion. Of the 16 19 project is AH is a piece of advocacy. Not a piece of history, not a piece of research and certainly not one worthy of the Pulitzer Prize. They conclude the Pulitzer Prize board aired in awarding apprised the Hannah Jones is profoundly flawed essay and threw it to a project that despite its worthy intentions, Is disfigured by unfounded conjectures and patently false assertions. Air is human. But now that it has come to light that these materials have been corrected without public disclosure. Oh, yeah, That's the other thing. Bunch of revisions and corrections in The New York Times 16 19 project without any footnotes without any annotation without any clarification without saying, Hey, when we first put this out You know, the version of the 16 19 project that won us all these awards, including the Pulitzer. There was a bunch of mistakes in it, and now we've corrected them. Nope. None of that. None of that. Just a shadow edit as they call it. And Hannah Jones has falsely put forward claims that she never said or wrote what she plainly did. The offense is far more serious. It is time for the Pulitzer Prize board to acknowledge it there rather than compounded, given the glaring historical policy at the heart of its account, and the subsequent breaches of core journalistic ethics by both Hannah Jones and the Times. Our democracies. Founding ideals were when they were written does not deserve the honor conferred upon it nor 16 90 project that this will leave a mark. This will get attention will turn heads.

Cinderella, who was in court recently with due to bowl patrol It's like you know the whole thing started because CC wanted the docks of Vic mackey and a bunch of other bowl patrol members, and now because of his trial they've all been docs, driver lives have been ruined. So you know it's I think Joe. Biden wanted to be president. and. We want to be president his whole political career, and now that might be a possibility but not the way he thinks it's like a genie right? You know in these stories and stuff the genie grants wishes. But if you're not careful if your wish it would fox you. Yeah you fucked and I think that's what it is. It's like. It's like a Faustian bargain. or Joe Biden is pretending to be. Senile.

Mental functions before he died. So. This is a in Ohio this amish trump rain either amish or mennonites be aside you know some people saw technology you'll mennonites are allowed to use motors I believe. People get mennonites and Amish mixed up. I was born like deep in the heart of Amish country. Senior. Apparently usually amish or you know vis vis folks they ver not political don't vote. So like people were saying the fact that they're out in force for for trump at least in this circumstance says a lot about trump's were there. You even see signs some hearts but let's say you know to watch out for these BUGGY forces buggies. Man I mean say what you want about the Amish but I love you know I love with these horses and stuff. It's really really means very interesting culture. You have to have a fucking blue lives matter flag come on come on. That's the thing I mean you know for the most part what was that movie with? Harrison Ford where he's a detective and he hides an amish country or. You Know I. I'm pretty sure most or not. I imagine most interactions between Amish and police are rapper Amish government or negative. Or are are becoming even more negative soon because you know the amish aren't after the state and we can't have that. Trump twenty twenty. Make Liberals, cry again. So that's an Internet memes. I wonder how Amish these people actually are whoever decorated at. Something that was cool here goes. So Michael Moore. said. Actually for once had some decent decent commentary. Biden Michigan Strategy actually worse than. Hillary. So filmmaker Michael Moore on Friday and now froze of you. Who are unfamiliar Michael Moore made? You know Michael Moore actually made some decent movies like I. Like forecast. Full of. Full of Info and stuff. But still like I saw was a capitalism a love story and I mean, you know he made some decent points in that. But you know the conclusions are obviously you know what's off and What was the other one? That was really the only one that I appreciate it I mean I I'd be curious to check out Roger and me because I was his first one. So. Okay filmmaker Michael Moore on Friday warned but twenty twenty Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is running a worst campaign in Michigan than 2016. Hillary Clinton. Who Lost Donald Trump candidate donald trump at tight margin more in an interview with the hills rising noted that trump has cut biden's lead in half and questioned Biden's ground game in Michigan, which he says, actually.

"Coming next on the world and everything in it evaluating the sixteen nineteen project one year ago the? New York Times released a special magazine issue and. Series on the history of slavery in America. Now, the project has gained awards and is even set to be taught in thousands of classrooms this fall but some scholars have sounded alarms about the accuracy of this telling of historical events Princeton, university professor, Alan Gals Oh of them world radios. JC. Derek recently interviewed gals. Oh, about his concerns and where to find better history resources. The Sixteen nineteen project has received a lot of recent attention including a Pulitzer Prize, but you've called it a grand conspiracy theory. So let's unpack that. The Sixteen nineteen project was a special one hundred page issue of the New York Times magazine in August of Twenty nineteen. And expressed aim was to recenter. This was the tournament is to recenter American history around the experience of slavery. and. That was meant not just chronologically. It was meant comprehensively everything in American life is a product of the oppressive experience of slavery. Everything from. From the food we eat to the laws that we pass. As a historian. One thing that I have learned to be very suspicious about our simple one purpose answers. The Sixteen Nineteen project is a quick answer because sixteen nineteen projects is I have a single answer for everything in American history, and here's what it is. It's all about anti black racism based on slavery and what I have always found is a single purpose answers. One trait they all share together as they're wrong. And at their worst. What they degenerate into our conspiracy theories. Let's walk through some of the specific errors. Oh Sixteen nineteen project teams with historical howlers. The very first one ironically is in the title. That sixteen nineteen is the beginning of American history because sixteen nineteen is when African slaves refers. To North America at Jamestown well, no. Actually that's not right. The first African slaves brought to North America were brought to Georgia by the Spanish, in fifteen, twenty nine. That that's comparatively minor. Alright. What's more important is it tries to build this story by squeezing everything in American history into this paradigm of Anti Black Racism based on slavery. So that it argues that one of the primary reasons that the American Revolution took place. was because the American colonists were getting very anxious that Britain was turning anti-slavery directions and so to protect slavery. They staged this revolution from British rule. That story has not a shred of historical evidence to support. Okay. So what case do they make then? The reasoning is supposed to be that in seventeen, seventy two. The British courts in this case, the court of Lord. High. Chief justice. Mansfield. Hands down a ruling in the case of James Somerset which declares that slavery cannot operate in the British isles air go James. Somerset is is a free person. And the argument of the Sixteen Nineteen project is that all the American slave owners looked at the somerset case and said Let's freak out. Let's have a revolution because this the British are going to apply this to America. Surveys that have been done of American opinion in seventeen seventy showed that hardly anybody in America even noticed the Somerset decision much less freaking out over. What's more if the American revolution had been staged to defend slavery There were parts of the British colonial empire which had much much deeper investments in slavery. Think the British West indies Jamaica Barbados if anybody was inclined to stage a revolution to defend slavery, it would have been the sugar islands the British West indies and yet. When the American revolutionaries make overtures to these other British colonies to join them in. Revolution. the west Indian colonies routinely refuse. If what the revolution was about was a revolution to protect slavery. The West Indian sugar islands should have joined with right away, but they didn't they refuse to. And the new. York Times can't claim ignorance on that. Right? Well, that no, they can't because one historian who was consulted by the Sixteen Nineteen Project Leslie Harris of northwestern. University. Advised the lead essay writer for the Sixteen Nineteen. Project Nicole, Hannah Jones advised her no, you can't say that that's not true. Anna. Jones went ahead anyway. Well I think that begs the question. Why do you think this happened? The historian may is tempted to say. Well, this was because it was written by a lot of journalists. These were not people who really had a lot of depth and experience in what they were writing about, and it shows in place after place on the sixteen. Nineteen project. And yet as you say. It helps to garner a Pulitzer Prize for Nicole Hannah Jones. curiously after put an exception here that Pulitzer. Was Not awarded to the sixteen nineteen project. There was as I understand from some of the backchat that that I'm privy to There was some real hesitation on the part of the Pulitzer Prize board about what to do about this because the New York Times was pressing very hard pulitzer. And their response was to do the solomonic thing. And that is they awarded a Pulitzer Prize to Nicole Hannah Jones not to the sixteen nineteen project, but to Nicole Hannah Jones for editorial journalism, not for history. So you look at that very carefully and you see that even with the Pulitzer Board, there was a real sense of discomfort about what they were being pressed to give credibility. Well. Let's briefly talk about some better places to go. For History I've been listening to your the audiobook version of your book titled Fateful. Lightning. It's about the civil war and all the events surrounding it. What do you hope readers will glean from a book like that?.

"Thanks Apple PODCAST team for sending that out to podcasters and and let's go with that last item. I WANNA point out a few things apple not Lipson or blueberry. You're popping apple is saying new episodes will be available within twenty four hours not instantly or five minutes but within twenty four hours an F. Y. The more often you release new episodes the quicker. They typically show up. That said if you release a new episode and thirty minutes later. It's not showing up on Apple PODCASTS. And you contact your hosting provider asking where it is and they reply can take twenty four hours. This is because what is what apple is saying so remember that. Apple said this. It's not you don't get upset with your hosting riders Support Team when they tell you can take up to twenty four hours and apple also said their regular timeline for launching. A new show is five business days for approval and then remember another week to be fully indexed and then another tweaks to be pulled into overcast and other places so do we've said many times on the show submitted new show for review at least one month prior to your public launch date and right now with the holidays plan on six weeks now. Let's go with the first part last on this apple and Amazon are making it easier for you to play a podcast on Alexa. Which is Great? If you haven't Alexa device do that say you know Alexa play? And then whatever. Your podcast title is on Apple podcasts. And see if it's your podcast because I'm almost pretty certain if you say and I'll say I'm gonNA use the word Alexa. Play the feed on Apple podcasts. A probably won't be the show. It'll probably one of that other one of the other feeds What you need to do is play around with your podcast on Alexa. And figure out what the invocation is that will make it work for your podcast specifically and then let your audience know that so. Do Educate your audience on this. Don't assume your audience is GonNa get it right Do tell them exactly what they need to say. Now if your podcast is the cheese doodle podcast and it's the only podcast out there called cheese doodle. Podcast you probably okay also remember. Alexa doesn't always recognize every words if you have a strange word or strange like the I. Podcast you gotta be careful about that so long the short if you have Alexa after this episode your homework is to go see if saying Alexa play. And then your podcast title on Apple. Podcasts ACTUALLY WORKS. Yay also I am sharing An article it's going to be in the show notes at actually came out slight. I don't know when it came out but it I just found it this morning so it came on the nineteenth so. I assume that I was this week but there are two bits. That are my favorite of this article. It's by Steve Goldstein. Who I think is awesome. And his title says Steve Goldstein. Podcast listening on smart speakers is less than one percent. Things are looking up so it's a really great article but my favorite things. Which is well I love him. So much are the last two headers right. The last two headers that he has in there. There are like four separate two paragraphs that you guys need to absolutely one hundred percent read and take to heart and this is something that for every single pot Castro that I work with one on one and anybody that part of the she podcast Super Squad team. I drive this home all the time and it has nothing to do with Alexa. But I think it's something that super important but I'm just GonNa read one of the sentences here. Actually maybe two of them. He says sorry paragraphs here. Because it's this important so this is directly from the article that is in rain. News Dot Com which you can link through and read through please. But this is what he says. Quote clarity of user benefit is at the core of all behavioral change none of this however will automatically grow podcast listening on smart speakers that only happens with awareness and education podcasters must promotional muscle behind it. We have seen this in our our work with other applications and platforms clarity of user. Benefit is at the core of all behavioral change. Nothing happens until clear cases may defining in just a few words. The pain point being solved why it is better and ease of use. The definition must be followed by extensive awareness and education in critically important teaching perspective users. How To podcasters? Who have been around for a few years. Certainly recall that we are not that far away from yes. You already have a podcast APP on your phone in. Most Americans are still not listening to podcasts. So the education face is far from over and quote so it gets better actually. He's got another two paragraphs there that I think are really seminal to to you understanding and teaching your audience so yes rob totally agreed. Thank you Steve for bringing this to the table again and you guys make sure that you educate your people ovoid all right so from here we go to our second Promo of the episode all aboard the Dream Train. Hi friends pardon the interruption. I hope everybody's having a great day. My Name's Mason William and produce a one of a kind dream storytelling. Podcast called all aboard the train. Each episode interview a new guest and asked him a few questions to get to know them and then we talk a little bit about their sleep hygiene and habits. And then we wrap it up with each guest's describing dream that they've had in detail and how that dream is affected them in their waking life. Join me as we discover new. People get an idea of how they sleep and discuss these hidden realms over unconsciousness. Thank you so much. So did you see the Youtube video from Saturday night? Live or did you see it on Saturday night. Live the father son podcasting microphone. I do believe that did where the dad just keeps talking. Is THAT WHY. It's it's like the the basic joke of it. Is that defaulter and son that they they can't get they can't communicate they're not exactly yes. Yes right But to get them talking day. Just do a podcast together and and I want to say having done a podcast with my son Yes it works. If you WANNA talk to your kids have a podcast with them. Yes yes you can do that so while they may have made fun of that. I will tell you that it is actually not far off the mark. It really is so when your children start in that awkward age when they will no longer talk with. You get to microphones and start a podcast. That's hilarious. I just saw Doctor Dr Oh he just published. He publishes a yearly podcast episode with his daughter and his daughter is now almost twelve so she's eleven she's like one of my kids and so it's really interesting to that that's happening. You know and that he's done that so long so you never know. Plus you've got you've got the legacy people you've got the legacy that's amazing all right. Moving on to another e. Mail trump repack your. Hey Elsie and rob wealth. Very nerdy podcasting technology fight test went public on Youtube. Lots of plugs for Lipson from David Pacman but also scary. If a if as David says mid roll slash stitcher is demanding people move host to Omni or they won't sell ads. Shall I grab a soapbox for you or do you? Have it already rob? I'd also note for feed listeners. When a business does it list their prices like Omni does not it generally means most people can't afford it carry on and this is from Jeremiah Jeremiah. And thanks for the email and despite one quote news unquote site saying David was wrong. He was not all he said in. That video was accurate and I have confirmed this from multiple sources and even saw the slide deck they sent to the producers. Yes what David. Pacman said was correct. And it's just disgusting that some quote news unquote sites would say he was wrong but then not all sides care about podcasters our listeners and that is David's point not only is he being one hundred percent bully to move. He's being bullied to move to a place that institue his own side deck is saying. They are doing this for third party tracking and attribution of his audience. Which again is ethically wrong. And in many places not legal so major Kudos to David for saying no and for others that told stitcher where to go and boo to those sites that are kicking podcastone east down just because one has a site does not make one journalist but I will say this. David is right. I've talked to quite a few of these Gaspar's and I've talked to the atty Gypsies and I'll tell you the agencies aren't happy with this either and speaking of journalists speaking again this is this is. This is a good yes. I like this a lot that it seems like now. Oh my gosh. This is so exciting so podcasters can actually win a Pulitzer Prize. This is so great. So okay quote. This is from an article from Pulitzer Dot org quote the Renaissance of Audio Journalism in recent years has given rise to an extraordinary array of nonfiction storytelling to recognize the best of that work. The Pulitzer Board is launching an experimental category to honor it. Pulitzer administrator. Dana Kennedy said quote the Board. Invite submissions from part producers of radio programs and PODCASTS. That exemplify the excellence of excellence? The Pulitzer Prizes have honored for more than a century unquote. How's that so fun very close very cool again? Podcasting is mainstream journalism. If you do it right it's also entertainment and it can be just silly. That's the beauty of podcasting. It can be anything and it can for the full spectrum just depends on how much work you put into it and that ultimately is what the Pulitzer is about. It's going to look at how much work you put into it. If you just throw my cup and start talking and don't do any research you're not going to win a pulitzer just say yeah and like the you know the truth be told show on Apple. Tv plus like what's really cool about that. Is that you know. The main character has a podcast. That's like her job like she. There is no and there's no discussion about it. It's not it's sort of like you know when you just meet a character and their doctor or you meet a character in their musician or you know. That's just what she does. That's that's her. Trajectory was so she was a journalist for a long time. And then she's now just doing this podcast in and it's that's just taken for granted if you will because a story line revolves around everything else that's going on in the show which is about the story itself and I find that incredibly appealing because it's not like a centerpiece of all things right. It just takes for it essentially just exactly what you said. It takes it to to to the point where it is just understood what a podcast is. And that's what she's doing so it's really exciting so we have another email here pay rob. I read a report today. That said twenty four percent of all podcast published in twenty nineteen are in a a c slash M. for format the format apple recommends but that number was skewed by anchor and other platforms where shows are in 'em for a by default and looking at new shows where the host makes a choice. It is less than five percent of twenty nine thousand nine. Podcast does Lipson care which format we use. I use phonic and have it process my way file from Hindenburg into an MP three. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thanks and this is from mark more. We support both. If someone chooses them for we will convert to MP3 just for spotify Pandora as those three services only support MP three and leave the file 'em for for all others that said our recommendation is MP3 because it's universally accepted. Employee is not universally accepted in recommended yet. Some sites still recommend it which I don't get either way. Lipson has a show covered. But if you want the least amount of issues go with MP three and that's what you're doing so you are golden nothing to change and so we have another little bit. This is from Mrs from you know. I sent you an email about this because it actually. It made me very happy. So podcasters radio public so this is actually a released from radio public. They have released a new product. It's the product but it's also free so there's both those both sides of this and what I told rob in assessing to email. I said to him but I just said that They actually created some services for podcasters that people are looking for. I said I dig the player I loved how optimize it is. I love how you can gather email addresses right in it and subscribe in one. Click and all the different players and it's very nicely designed. Mobile Friendly Aka. It's pretty so you guys go check it out. It's you can go over to Again Lincoln the show notes. But if you want to click through podcasters dot radio public dot com slash pricing and they have to.

Most of, you know, my fun for John legend, don't know that I could point to song that he's done that I remember, I just kind of like the sound of his voice songs, many songs sound somewhat the same, but he has a key to emotion and a key to life that I like. And so he's released this song, we need love as the premiere of his new TV show song land starts on NBC, I suppose this music, and television news manner of speaking.

They sing their song, and then the four judges are producers there, three producers and then the guest celebrity, and they in the mid as the song the songs being performed you.

"For the record care was founded long before nine eleven, but that is the least of the videos problems. It takes the congresswoman's words out of context. Here is a raw clip of the speech where that line some people did something came from listen for the difference. It doesn't matter. How good you were. If you can't have you player map and take you fifteen minute break to go pray in a country that was founded on religious liberty. It doesn't matter. How good you are. If you one day find yourself in a school where other religions are talked about. But when Islam is mentioned, we are only talking about terrorists. And if you say something you I sent to the principal's office. Was founded after nine eleven. Because they recognize that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties, that's a clip of a speech that congressman Omar gave in March. Now, this tweet from the president prompted a handful of people to threaten homicide against a member of congress. What can be done about that? And what does the law say about online threats? Joining us in studio is Sanford under director of the free speech project at Georgetown University. Sanford, welcome back to the program. Thank you Jesuit. Good to be here. Also, joining us is Robbie Chowdhry and attorney author and national security fellow at new America. Robbie welcome. We'll just be discussing this this first segment of the program. So if you do have questions or comments, please send them right away, Email one A at W A M U dot org. Comment on our Facebook page or tweet us at one A Sanford Unger. Let me start with you. What does the law say about these kinds of threats? Well, the law, of course, is a scattered piecing together of lots of supreme court decisions over the years supreme court jurisprudence of on free speech is much more significant than anything except the first amendment. The first amendment says congress shall make no law among other things that bridging freedom of speech and. So, you know, Representative Omar has free speech rights to say what she wants and President Trump has free speech to say what he wants. I think if one if we were to one of the great exceptions in supreme court decisions about free speech is any speech that tends to provoke violence can can be denied protection the first amendment. If you choose between, those two statements, the one by congresswoman, Omar or the one by the president of the United States, I think one of them incites violence, and it's not hers, although the standard, I just want to be clear, Sanford, the standard in terms of inciting violence is not just saying, you know, someone ought to hit that guy in the head with a brick. It has to be, you know, more of a clear and present danger an imminent threat of that's right, Robby. I'd love your sense on what's motivating this Brian commented on our Facebook page. I worry that the death threats against Representative Omar are being reported as indicators of newly danger. Rhetoric or a newly violent political environment. But for Muslim women of color. There's nothing new about this violence intimidation is the everyday lived experience for vulnerable populations in the United States. It's important to distinguish between a new phenomenon and something that is only now visible to the general public Robbie. What do you think how much of this is new and how much of this has just been around and people have noticed? I mean, certainly it's not new in the sense that look after nine eleven there has been a steady increase when you win. This pulling done in this country in terms of anti-muslim sentiment. It's actually gone up. It was much lower immediately in the aftermath of nine eleven, and, you know, American Muslims have been the Canaries in the coal mine trying to call attention to this. But it's where we've been like a frog in a slow boiling pot and the pod is now bobbling hard. Although it's not new this is another level when you have when you have the president himself. You know, joining these kind. Voices. These used to be fringe groups under the Obama administration in many ways, many of the groups that were inciting, you know, that had really vicious agendas against American Muslims, and we're very organized around a lot of them were marginalized from media and press than even think tanks and suddenly now they're back in the fold, and they are, you know, helping create policy and shaped narratives, and and we hear the same things the same kinds of things coming out of the mouths of leading politicians and the GOP that were once reserved for the for the fringe alright fringe, another part of Brian's commented love you to dig into deeper where he writes that violence intimidation is the everyday lived experience for vulnerable populations in the United States. How much are you seeing? Now, rob you that this kind of intimidation setting aside congresswoman, Omar is an everyday lived experience is anything getting better. You know, I I will say this. I sometimes line this administration to the the alien invasion that maybe United some of us things are getting better in this in only in the sense that finally in the progressive, and in the left people are actually seeing what we've been saying for years, and they're acknowledging it, and they are joining us in their horror at it and in their resistance to it. So that's good. That's the silver lining having that. No, there's an increase in hate crimes not just against Muslims against Jews. And we also understand the intersection -ality all of these. You know, all of this kind of collective hate is not just against Muslims rising hate crimes against Jews into some MS rising. Whether it's against LGBTQ people, there's a very very long historical nexus between anti-muslim movements and anti immigrant movements. And of course, we are constantly seeing from this president who ran from the first day on on Mexicans are rapists on anti. Immigrant rhetoric. So it's all kind of on the increase, and that's the bad news. Was speaking to Robbie a Chowdhry new America and Sanford Unger of Georgetown, university's free speech project, Sanford and other aspect of this is that the president sent this on Twitter and Twitter does have the authority to suspend or block to pull down accounts that traffic in hateful speech Twitter is kind of an interesting frontier for this. Because the first amendment does not govern social media it governs government if didn't envision right media. So this is kind of an interesting kind of I don't wanna say gray area. But it's uncharted territory. In the there's also a lot of internal politics in the so-called content moderation of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Twitter would have to be prepared for quite a firestorm. If it decided to delete one of President Trump's tweets, and he would there would be a battle that he could only win if Twitter to that. Because he could then accuse Twitter of being part of the problem. Part of the fake news. Ignoring the real crises facing the country. I mean, the president has in a bind in in some respects, and I don't think anyone's going to be unless the White House, which it occasionally does it takes down tweets proved to be untrue that proved to be particularly disturbing in some cases. I don't see the White House moving to try to take down this tweet. What do you make Sanford of speaker? Pelosi Nancy Pelosi saying that such behavior is just flat out dangerous. She is called on the president to take the tweet down as of this morning. It is still there. Well, of course, it's dangerous behavior. We've seen that on many occasions. The president tweets that reporters are enemies of the people. And low and behold last year, something honored by the Pulitzer prize board just yesterday the newspaper in Annapolis Maryland, someone came in and shot up the newsroom killed journalists. And they were given a prize by the Pulitzer board yesterday for continuing to do their job in the face of horrendous grief. So we know that the president's words provoke violence, we know that they often fit the standard that the courts have talked about for years, but he's the president of the United States. And I don't think anyone has imagined in the past that someone holding that office would be the problem or part of the problem. And then on that end Robbie Chowdhry. It's there's also the additional aspect of deleting a tweet, you know, when you delete something like that in a way, it kind of can allow it to seem like it was never there in in the first place. So it seems like there's there's. A little to be said on either side. That's maybe tweets like tweets like this shouldn't be put up at once. They are up. Taking them down removes a record of the president's comments. Well, I mean, you know, once it's up. It's even if it's deleted. It's not like it's going to be a minis buddies memories. Everybody's going to have the screen shots. And they're going to have pulled the video and it's never been a goal away. In fact, I think while I agree with you on some level. I understand the point. You're trying to make deleting. It shows that there is that that there is a limit to, you know, free speech rights, and and I think it would show tremendous strength on the part of Twitter in terms of what they're willing to tolerate and not believe me, what Twitter there's been many times I received direct threats, and as a Muslim all kinds of terrible things I reported it and Twitter says, well, they didn't it didn't violate our policy. So, you know, it makes me question the policy, but I think it would be an important signal to the American public that certain things are just not acceptable. It doesn't matter. If it's the president. It's it's certainly not going to be the case that we're gonna lose that tweet to history. It's still we're still gonna know that he did it. It's gonna be out there. Robbie Chowdhry national security fellow at new America Robbie thanks for talking to us. Thank you so much and Sanford director of the free speech project at Georgetown University. Thank you Sanford.
