"republican national convention" Discussed on RJ Politics

"So Republicans say, well, why can we have black lives matter protest and and we can't have you know a evangelical pro-trump it makes sense for why can we have these protests but can't go to church and there there's there's makes that argument makes some sense you know if you get two thousand people in a casino. And there at fifty percent capacity why in a church facility that can accommodate? Ten thousand people couldn't you have two thousand people in there it makes sense that kind of argument makes sense and so I think those those kind of things really you know a pump bring to the center this whole thing of. Individual rights and individual. You know choice in a society versus you know being cognizant in curtailing ones own behavior and one's own freedom voluntarily for the common good and I think some of those Stein, the those things really are coming into stark relief during these two conventions. Yeah definitely, and and there are some political thing I think involved in both I i. You know Ans- differences I think as well. I mean certainly going out and and you know sort of forcibly breaking up those those protests would have been a very significant undertaking I feel because I was at them for at least at least one that I feel very dangerous undertaking. As a you know as opposed to. Outdoor events as opposed to trump event, which was an indoor but absolutely I mean, you see the argument being made both sides when you've seen now the her actually suing the state and Over that same ish over that same thing we just saw that this week Ryan time that they're being treated. Unfairly because for example casinos. Can have more people and operate at fifty percent capacity whereas that building, which was originally casino is limited to fifty people per gathering and and there's you know that's that's going to be an ongoing debate and of course, we're very cynical here in Las Vegas. We say, well, you know the casinos obviously the drivers of the economy we want as many people in here's we can possibly pack in there consistent with safety limits. Because surely, we don't want to have outbreak at one of the casinos and then have a las vegas associated with a super spreader event. As they're called, you know nobody wants that we want people to come here to feel safe to feel increasingly safe as they come here, and whatnot but But yeah, there there's there are these debates that are going on in court in the public domain on TV and at the conventions. Yeah absolutely. Absolutely. All right. Well, think that's probably enough for for this week As again you know will come back to you next Friday and every Friday pretty much. At Rj, politics and you can find us on twitter at at ruinous phonics at Steve's bilious. Make sure you subscribe to our podcast. We'll be back with probably more recapping of the two conventions as they are totally closed is as I said, as we're recording today, not quite done with the Republican national convention but most of the way they're. The whole. Campaigning. Actually. Starts S. Strip Bredon for the Has Been. Years this cycle's been about fourteen years I. The caucuses were six months like, are you kidding me? That was that was a lifetime ago I can hardly even remember those days to be honest with you. I'm like Yeah I'm like writing letters like a soldier would you know to home to my? For? The it's all going to change. Everything's going to be totally different. You're never. You're not going to see people anymore. It's just it's while it's wild but anyway. We'll be back will be covering the politics of everything going and and and recapping what happened and I guess that's probably enough I'm politics reporter, Rory Appleton and arm politics government editor.

"That certainly the complaint that the Democrats would make is that you know the attempts to block you know mail in voting same day registration, those types of things that improve people's ability to vote and to register you know the Democrats basically say will Republicans don't want that because they want us few people to to participate as possible and so yeah, I think the Democrats see big huge cast net in terms of Biden being pulled to the left I mean I guess he probably does feel like he has to make some sort of concessions I mean he's been meeting his ease adopted a lot of financial policy that was similar to search warrant had he has been kind of. Meeting with those folks. But I don't know how much I by the narrative that they own him. He won I mean you know if. I just kind of feel like it doesn't make any sense that they that they own have. No he he won and he did so early and pretty pretty quickly I should say you know wants to people actually started voting. So I do a couple of primaries but yeah, you're right. If it was if it Sanderson de the target is obvious but I think with Biden the year you're sort of you know trying to create like you said, sort of a bit of Straw man kind of a situation where you can you. Attach to all these of bogeyman. The Nancy Pelosi's you know that type of thing. I'll tell you being at these events. This week for the Republican stuff, I will say that the number one thing that I've heard from trump's staffers from volunteers from people who just showed up at these things at the campaign offices and I just wanted Henderson one in score sorta close at Northern Vegas Summerlin tonight is all the economy I mean that that seems to be the one that is sticking. You know this this sort of idea that trump. Had A great economy before covid and again big once it's over whatever the way the people explain it they'll be a vaccine but I think you're totally right. You know there's a vaccine for this one but with the next one's coming and the next one after that in the next one after that. But you know I do think the economy's one that stock there's an interesting one here local heave, which is essentially. You've seen a lot of Republicans bring back up the school choice There's actually GONNA be a rally for that. Tonight I know Dan Rutz running for Congress, a bunch of assemblyman. Bunch of other folks folks I talked to last night who were at this trump event who volunteer say that's a big one and basically that's kind of been rekindled a little bit locally and we'll see how big a how big this event is. But that's kind of an interesting one that is not on the national radar that's been kind of rekindled locally I found in these last couple of days I think because of what's going on with the schools here? You. Know we had some trouble at school started this week stuff for people to get online. So I'm interested to see if that's if that really does become sort of a local issue again as I understand it that used to have you know those those savings accounts here and have since gotten rid of them and the Republicans it seems like bring it back every cycle in their deepened the minority and they're not he's not gonNA cut through. But I you know I had folks I had trump delegates tell me that this is GonNa be a big issue here locally, and that's something that I just well I guess we kind see but. Yeah. No I think the economy I think fat. Again talking to Republicans I I have not nobody has told me. That they're concerned about the. They're concerned about how to get. You know how we're going to get out of that part I mean I don't know I. Don't know if it's if the sort of narratives at the Republicans are pushing his working but yet there's no I mean certainly I've talked to folks who? Didn't have their masks or you know were packed into tight buildings weren't weren't concerned about it and were talking about you know what? What you know how do we get to the next step? It was all when we get there. Could be great. Trump's great thousand. And that's the thing I mean it requires you to imagine a reality that does not exist and and while you know people tout the power positive thinking. And an always have an positive thinking probably is a good philosophy, but you know so is so as recognizing reality and dwelling in dealing with reality. And that is that the the coronavirus is really does exist You know there are a lot of Republicans say well, the risks are over height. If you're if you're a young person, there's less risk and statistics bear that out somewhat it's not that if your child or your teenager, you can't get it is at the odds are that you you won't get it and you know if you have underlying health conditions, you're more vulnerable to it than statistics bear that out as well but but that brings up a really interesting point, which is this whole. Dichotomy between. The individual and society the collective, the common good and that that is a big difference. I think between the two parties because you know Republicans are more likely and I'm generalizing here, I admit. But they're more likely to embrace the individual as as you know, somebody who individuals ought to be able to make decisions for themselves, and if I choose to go out to a restaurant or you know go out. To a casino where there's a crowd that's a risk that I should be able to take because I'm an adult in. This is a free country and you know I'm I'm making that decision maybe not a very well informed choice but I'm making that choice and I should be able to do that whereas Democrats. Say Look you know what I wear my mass not for me but for other people I do. It as as a sign of respect for others and to slow the spread of this disease on I want other people to get it I'm cognizant that you know I. I have no problem going to my office but you know what? My colleague two doors down you know lives with someone who has a compromised immune system and I feel for him and and for his family situation. So I gotta take that into account. And so you're seeing that icon me I. Think you know in these events for example, you covered the event over at the hotel where. Evangelical for trump got together and there were some precautions that were taken there and and they. And they had you know put some some protocols in place but there was still the possibility of community spread in that. In that event, these black lives matter protests that are going on where there are a lot of people in close proximity, some of whom are wearing masks, some of whom aren't those gatherings regardless of the purpose of what they were called. They are risk factors for spreading this disease and and.

"republican national convention" Discussed on RJ Politics

"Think that's the most you're going to get out of a Republican speaker out of this convention in terms of you know, let's not let our differences divide us you know those types of. Sentiments and then you had the vice president who I thought gave a very sort of traditional Republicans speech of you know you. We can have law and order and we can you know make life better for our African American. You know neighbors that type of stuff you know who who attacked bite in quite a lot saying you know it's Biden Racist Biden came up with the cream, the crime bill you. Know who's who's locked away thousands of people call her and stuff like you know things like that. It was that I thought was more kind of like hardened like party political speech whereas you know when you have especially the president and members of his family, we should say we record Thursday afternoon. So as a recording, this president, a spoke by the time this aired will have spoke we hope nothing horrible. Or crazy or anything happens it will change the context of this conversation but that's that's sort of that disclaimer. Anyway I thought I thought pants was you know just a pretty standard kind of you know the other side's pretty bad. You know traditional sort of moral Republican type values. We should also say to that you know the Republicans, are saying that DNC's doom and gloom it, I don't I didn't i. Don't think that that's necessarily true either we're not trying to say that I mean there was plenty of sort of uplifting moments I. Think in both sides, you had the Republicans obviously pardon John Ponder, who's local guy who a lot of people know for his work with you know people who recently got an out of jail and then you win the Democrats was a lot of talk about you know helping. Immigrants Finding a path for citizenship in strengthening healthcare, you know helping rebuild the middle class that type of stuff building back better I think is the Biden statement. There's been a little bit optimism little bit of. Negativity on both sides, but nonetheless, I still have felt watching them just with how things describe it. I saw really funny tweet earlier this week Dave. Weigel from Washington Post and he basically said and I I've all all my life. I've heard Republicans do this and I never thought of this. He said we're all totally used to it, but it's a big difference between the parties when Republicans use a phrase like democratic states there's been throughout this Seattle Portland and therefore Washington Oregon California. These are the enemies. These are examples of socialist sort of utopias that are going to be you know thrust upon the world if Joe Biden wins, you just never see Democrat say the same thing about a republican state and he's basically like you don't see a Democrat. You know talk about how backward or whatever Mississippi they just don't do that. There's not any talks about Republican states like we don't want to end up like you know. Kansas or whatever like. I just I had something I've thought of he said and I thought of haven't been able to get on my head for like three days is that you that just doesn't happen like it just does not a two way street Democrat states are bad fine. Sure. But nobody's out there saying sort of Republicans states are bad on the other side. Yeah exactly and and you're right because you know the the what the Democrats say is you know we WANNA make democratic red states blue we WANNA you know we're looking at Georgia we're looking at Texas where we're trying to influence them to get them over on our side now like Oh. You know we don't WanNA end up like Texas or. Mississippi ear. Any of these deep red states that the because I it's just not that that's just not a phrase that or a an attack line that works very well, and for Republicans you know they're very good at taking like for example, the quote unquote. San Francisco Liberal. you know Nancy Pelosi what she's from San. Francisco I. Mean I'm old enough to remember when the Republicans held their convention in San Francisco mean it was a great. Any is far as I'm concerned not great. American city and. And you know nowadays I it it you know you say San Francisco to Republicans in it invokes all sorts of member of. Ideas of lawlessness and and people you know naked parades through the streets and cultural clashes and all of that Kinda stuff and and there's this negative association a with it whereas Democrats I I I think you know don't they don't do the same thing. They don't talk about Mississippi values or whatever. Because I think they're afraid of losing those kind of voters they want to appeal to the widest swath of voters that they. Could possibly appeal to and so instead of alienating the people live in Mississippi, they try to say, Hey, you know what you. You might be surprised at what you have in common with the the democratic beliefs. So you know we're trying to create a big tent party here with his room for Alexandria, Cossio Cortes and Joe Biden. Now, the now the knock, of course during the Republican convention is that you know Joe Biden. If he if he at one point was a free thinking more conservative moderate Democrat those days are over. He's been taken over by the by the liberal left and you know all of that kind of thing, and so it's the rhetoric. The rhetoric absolutely doesn't match I mean I've seen millions of times people ride in email or on the pardon me on twitter saying liberalism is a mental disease I don't think I've ever read somebody saying conservatism is a mental disease they might say something like conservatism is based on. Greed and self interest or something like that. But they don't accuse their opponents of being literally insane for espousing a certain of viewpoint and you do see that on the on the on the Republican. Side in I think it. It goes down to this. This nature of you know they want to capture what it is to to be an American. They can circumscribe patriotism in the American character to include their party but exclude the Democratic Party they're to they're going to win a certain percentage of votes from bat alone. Their ability to say, we are the Party of America of good American character of good American values. The Democrats are not they're the Party of socialism and And they admire for dictators like Castro and We'll go CIA says and all that and they're the other and and they can high Salei folks are based on that alone. I mean they you saw the you know when they said the Democrats had taken under God out of the pledge allegiance at the Democratic convention. Well, it's on tape of course, didn't do it. They recited the pledge. As it has been written since the nineteen fifties by the way because under God was not in the original pledge of allegiance, it was inserted during the red scare the nineteen fifties when they also put in God, we trust on our money and so the Democrats faithfully recited the nineteen fifties forward version of the pledge in. So they didn't exclude God, but a lot of these things with conservatives. They, they want to argue against a vision of the Democrats that they themselves have created. It doesn't comport necessarily with reality. It's an exaggeration of reality, but they want to argue against that because it's easier than arguing against the reality I mean the reality is that Joe Biden is not a socialist. He is not an irreligious person. He is not a know this This callous person doesn't care about jobs as they would like him to be. So it's necessary to create a character church against which to run so that they can run against the straw man that they have created rather than the reality because that's harder and requires more nuance and if there's one thing American voters do not embrace I. Think we can all agree. Especially, with the past thirty years, it is any sort of nuance. Yeah? Yeah. No, that's absolutely right I. don't see any Republicans who who feel that. They can win over or should tree even try and win over you know folks who would support. Alexandria cortazar or somebody who's on the far left in Warren supporters or you know things like that you just you don't see that I mean their strategy has remained pretty much the same way you know we're talking to folks on the ground here I mean the the campaign is quite clear and they will they will you know they'll tell you even what they're doing, which is essentially you know they want to rally the base. They're still running sort of base kind of campaign where you get the basic cited, you get them out you and then you depress the other sites sort of core base or whatever you keep them from going to the pulse through Las your time if I'm being perfectly on..

"republican national convention" Discussed on RJ Politics

"The news on the Republicans have had their turn. This week and they are broadcasting from all sorts of different places including the White, house where president trump is scheduled tonight to deliver his acceptance speech for the Republican nomination and I, assume he's going to accept I'm pretty going under the assumption that he's going to accept that nomination and And be the Republican nominee and so the I. It's interesting too because they the way these conventions have had to be structured. is completely different than all the past conventions There's no bigger arenas. There's no huge crowds gathered together. There's no cheering throngs of people. you know laughing and giving applause at the applause lines. It's It's weird too because you you anticipate it. Right you somebody gets off a really good line that you know a speechwriter worked really hard on your. You're waiting for the crowd, the roar, the crowd, and it just doesn't come. So it's weird having been to a convention person covered in person. And having watched this one remotely mostly on C. Span is my preferred because span doesn't cut away and give us anchors. Commentary and all that you just get the raw feed the whole thing it really it really is odd it's a much different convention in past years and it takes a little getting used to I. Think. Yeah it's been really strange situation I. Think I've had a little bit of a different experience this weekend that I've been at local Republican Watch parties during it. So even though one of them had you know all of like eight people in but last night I was with group probably about fifty and it felt a little bit a little bit more similar in a sense that yes, there was a there was a crowd so to speak that like cheered when they talked about. Peace in the Middle East for for example the. Peace Agreement between the U A E and Israel was something that really got people excited and then you saw other. Of Lines that were just kind of muted responses to it's been really an interesting way to see how both parties have kind of adapted to this I one thing I think the production value for for both for the most part it's been pretty good in terms of like commercials in terms of like little clips in adds little segments that they've done. You had on Peyot come in from Jerusalem which was a surprise and an issue for a lot of Democrats but it's it's it's an interesting sort of back and forth between the two the differences between the two of really rich dark for me as well I think. I heard from Republicans that the Democrats are all gloom and doom all that stuff in you've seen Republicans, come out and say you know, hey, wasn't before covid. Back there at some, it's each been wild for me to watch because I like I said I've been at I've been at events this week last week we were talking about how I didn't get to you know we don't get to go to events. We don't get to hear from people, but I have heard from people now mostly volunteers and they liked that that is how they are talking. That's how Republicans locally trump surrogates trump delegates, trump staffer stats, how they're talking. You know after cove it who do you want to rebuild this this country you know trump, of course, the Yada and The Democrats have an interesting response which to me makes a whole lot of sense which is okay. But how do we get to the after covert part? You've got Cova killing a thousand people a day. You've got hurricanes hitting the southeast you've got wildfires hitting the West you've got civil unrest all throughout the country particularly in the Midwest now. Another police shooting of a of a black man and so. I get it I totally get. You know I think I think it works I think a lot of people don't WanNa see doom and gloom alda and do a sort of a rosier future to look ahead to I. You know most of the Republicans that I spoke to felt that the conventions been going absolutely great and of course all the Democrats terrible and you know the roles reverse but I have I have been struck. By just sort of the difference is because you you have seen. Both of them have sort of a similar approach in they're parading people who you might not always here from the Republicans several Democrats you know they're looking for people of color you know to sort of counteract the narrative that you know there's nothing for color in of Party, and then in the Democrats, you saw them bring out some some never-trumpers type Republicans as well to say, Hey, you folks in the middle you come this way this time, and so that's that's been sort of similar other than that. I think the two conventions have been completely opposite basic your different countries like I mean I think that's clear and I think that's that's sort of the the point is, is that it is know. Republicans Democrats if you just watch these and you didn't know anything else, you would think it was totally two different countries they were talking about. And a couple of things about that I mean I think first of all, you know yeah I I would love to be after cove it. I would love to be done with this. You know I think we're all sick of it. We've been cooped up at home I six months every day like the next. It looks like it's going to be that way for the foreseeable future. It's like we're all we've all been sentenced to house arrest and and nobody wants that I just don't know what posts Kovic E. S. I just don't know when we will get there or how we will get there because I think now this has changed. Not only the way we respond to this individual of virus at this individual time but the way we're going to respond to all future viruses Going forward. So I think I don't know that there is a post covert world. In which these kind of precautions aren't going to become common everyday things going forward in in every flu season, we're going to have to gear up. For something like this The other thing that I think is is you're absolutely right that the differences between the two conventions could not be more stark but I think even within just the Republican. Convention will some the things I've been reading about it? a that the Republicans themselves alternate between the doom and gloom and the optimism I mean they wanna have the optimism most of Ronald Reagan who who you know shining city on a hill and and all that the optimism of George W. Bush he was very big on that. But at the same time that isn't I think they need they have this need to tell you that if the Democrats take over were going to be the country is GonNa go to hell and we are going to be in in dire straits and it's GonNa be a terrible housekeeper of socialism and everything else, and so it's like almost two channels broadcasting simultaneously on the same wavelength basically saying. You should be afraid of the Democrats are gonNA, Destroy America, but you know what are better days or just around the corner? As long as you elect president trump and so it's it's kind of a discordant message that they're sending But I think at this time you know they need to broadcast on both of those channels because in you know there are a lot of voters who are motivated by fear and dislikes, the other side and and you gotTa tell them. Here's what to be afraid of here's why you should dislike them. But there's a lot of voters who also want to hear positive message and so you need to get those two and so instead of sticking with one particular thing I, think they're trying to do both at the same time and sometimes it comes off as as as kind of discordant. Yeah and I think it's been really you've noticed a really really big difference in sort of the keynote kind of major speakers because to me watching. Donald trump junior watching kimber legal. The first night. That was very doom and I mean, you know lot of memes tweets about you know the volume level the. Show. Made me think like, okay you're at eleven just. Keep this level. Response and don't think that'll work but you know that can to Malania, trump who I thought of all the speakers so far in the RNC has been the most sort of like you know, let's all come together I..

"An online. Wait what I am in an alternate universe like I remember what happened to the chicks that was like the first moment I canceled culture and it wasn't liberals doing it like it just. That like you're with us or against us, there's all these lines in the sand you know what I know it, but also free expression everybody has a right. We let we totally welcome everybody and all their free expression to be however, they want to be and we would never ever cancel people because we believe in free speech and free expression. That's the part where my head started spinning around Opposite Direction. We had such a lovely message awhile back from a listener named Morgan who put together a proposal for why we should talk about cancel culture here on the podcast and it was so well thought out. and. I think it really crystallized for me that canceled culture is another one of those labels that we've slapped on some this amorphous group of things to the point that it doesn't mean anything anymore. I think the way canceled culture is being used right now there are governmental dimensions, but they are mostly business and cultural issues. Right? Are we talking about free speech actually when we're talking about what you're allowed to wear to your job? No. That is not what the First Amendment concerns at all. Are. We talking about liberty when we're discussing what twitter chooses to promote or put a footnote on no, that doesn't have anything to do with the First Amendment but we've used cancel culture too like encompass everything from what happened to people held accountable through the me too movement to Nicholas Sanmen who had a speaking role the COVINGTON Catholic. Kid who had that viral moment with an indigenous Man Lincoln? Memorial. To the goodyear situation that the president is all upset about I. mean that's too many things under one header. Those are not all the same things. What I think is at the root of it again is like we don't want to feel any threat to our status quo. It's not about forgiveness and redemption which I believe in. So strongly, it is about protecting what we have no matter what the cost is to anyone else, and again that's a message that I cannot get on board with do we occasionally have a ridiculous immature mob mentality on twitter? Absolutely. I hate it when people circulate something and say find out who this asshole is and do your thing twitter. I think that's awful. I think that has nothing to do with who we elect as president that is a cultural issue. And I think that cultural issue is just being turned into sword and Spear and shield for Donald Trump. Right now in a way that is super disingenuous I totally agree I think it's an issue in some places, but it's it's to a more fits. It's people are using it to describe too many things, but it's going to clearly be for better or for worse a big part of his reelection campaign and so i. Think we have to figure out how to articulate. You know I'm not really sure we're talking about canceled culture anymore or to say you're right there is always a place for redemption and our culture and our society even on twitter but I don't think that means they're going to stop banging that drum a think they're definitely gonNA keep banging that drum and we're all just going to have to deal with the resulting in headache. This.

"I talk about something else that really frustrated me about the Republican National Convention. Are Really. Really disliked the use. Of the official duties of the president and the White House itself which. Is Our house. It's paid for by our money in such a political fashion, not to mention the secretary of state like that. Ran Right over me I cannot. Articulate how? Much. I hated all that. You know what I think was almost helpful about it. It is such a clear and caps elation of how Donald trump orients himself in the role of the president. that this is not his duty, it is his entitlement. This is not his job it is his country now. And I think using the White House using the secretary of state using. Powers of the presidency. Anna Political Convention. So clearly previews for us what another four years of Donald Trump would look like. Because there are no limits there there are actual. Laws preventing him from doing what he did and he did it anyway. This is the person who's preaching law and order to US every day. There are actual laws that say you cannot do what he did and he did it anyway and so. He's telling us he is and who he will continue to be and what the trajectory of that will look like and we should believe him. Yeah. It's just I feel like it's so disrespectful of the office but I don't know why that it doesn't necessarily surprise me. It's like George will's said like he has no bottom expected to get worse but the just the flagrancy of it, the hail to the chief, the swearing people, Anna citizens, and not telling them what you're going to use the video footage of. Is just. It's so infuriating. And disrespectful to the office disrespectful to everybody who held it before in just disrespectful to the country. I. Don't know how to put it like it's not yours. It doesn't belong to you but you're right I mean that's not how he sees it. He sees it as. His and his alone another aspect of the convention and I can't believe I'm going to bring this up because you know I despise talking about it was this theme of abortion as top priority. And I thought it was really interesting. How throughout the first three nights at least you had from speaker after speaker this almost explicit. Hey Hey.

"Is Not available to us and it is not desirable. Well, NFL like there's sort of. Two groups I, feel myself engaging with I feel like they're the people I love who I do not understand where they're coming from where I'm having to say I don't understand why the seventeen year old shooter gets truckloads of benefit of the doubt but Jacob Blake cast to. Ascribe Motives and explanations to his every movement. It feels like this attribution error that happens in our in group out group like he has all the excuses of the environment. But that guy was bad and that drives me crazy and that is exhausting and I feel like there's a lot of that to this moment in the Republican National Convention where you could he, you could feel them reaching out. To. White. Suburban women. Down to the like. Trump a champion of women, and basically you don't have to feel bad for yourself if you want to vote for him. I just think it's imperative. To, have these conversations not with people we fight with all the time and don't understand. But in these groups are we don't talk about politics because it makes everybody uncomfortable. Like, this is not nine hundred and sixty eight. Are. Different. Now. Women, are different now and I think there is a feel it when we when we hear from our listeners in our messages and in our inbox, this desire to participate and that doesn't just mean with people who want to talk politics sometimes, it's going to be with people who don't because if not the only narrative they're going to have in their head is the one they've heard of the last three nights. If you don't disrupted and say. Oh No. I felt like they were trying to scare me. Or make me feel better for being scared and told me it was okay. Or paint this. You know it's okay to feel good about America. It felt like this this constant. It's okay. It's okay. It's okay. and. Know it is. Okay. To feel some of these things, but that can't be the end of it like that. That TV, narrative. CanNot be the last thing. People. See or think about our engage with before they really make the call who to vote for like this on the ground active citizenship or we can I with our people and say I've been thinking about this. What do you think about it or I didn't really like being Sold to this is what I felt like they got wrong about what women like US care about. I just think that's really really important. As this desired? Voting Block. And I don't know what the viewership is like around the convention, but I think the themes of it. Really Permeate conversations but I'm a part of anyway I mean I they. Chose their themes. Deliberately because they feel they're something there and I do think it's worthwhile to kind of. Go. Through here's the Republican thesis Okay and part of that is law and order part of it and I felt assisted in finding language for this by Mary Trump's book but part of it I think is what you said Sarah about feeling good about America this sort of patriotism as like the power of positive thinking that. If we are just around like talking about all of America's flaws. Did you watch Boston legal and you're like there was this character on Boston legal denny crane constantly called people a namby-pamby I kept thinking of him as I watched the convention like all the people who have any kind of critique of America are being namby-pamby and there's this sense that what it means to be. A Patriot is to be insistent that there is not a problem here. Not only were not. There's not a problem, but we are the best we are the best and if you don't think so then you are the problem. You are the issue. If you think America has an issue, then you would be it. And That's not how I want to raise my children. I don't want to be a person who thinks my kids are perfect. In won't talk about any issues going on with them. I don't want to be a person who thinks I'm perfect. I don't want to think about our business here. They're just not other places in my life. I, don't WanNa be like that about the church I want to be really open to critique of the Church both mine and the broader church. That's a really hard thing to crack though because not everyone I, know could rattle off that list or would rattle off atlas that I just did right. There is a strong sense of identification in believing that what you have going on and what you're affiliated with is good. I was just having a discussion with someone about how sometimes it is hardest to root out racism in organizations that fulfil really important societal missions because everybody looks around and says, we're doing so much good here. What could be wrong? And we've scaled that up in America to there are so many great things about this country. What could be wrong and I think that is a big and compelling part of the Republican thesis and it is very hard to say, no friends I both love this country. And want to insist that this country does a better job living up to its promise. I want to both love this country and leave it better than I found it. Yeah. It feels like if. You criticize the.

"The screen this hand extended to say don't you want everything in your life to stay as easy as possible? I think that was the question that was being asked to me and people in my demographic. And don't you WanNa, stay on top. I feel like that's the other. Don't you WANNA stay in charge don't you want to be the group that makes the decisions and sets the priorities and reinforces the values. That's kind of what I felt too. That's right. I mean, there was a woman who explicitly said and I'm sorry that I don't have her name in front of me said. Everybody should vote in this election in the interest. What's best for their families? and. I just sat with her words for a second because I think that we do that. And that's why we have accepted a lot of things that are unacceptable because those things are best for our particular families. And not, for the families of our neighbors. and. When you have someone like Nikki Haley say in this really exasperated way of course, black lives matter. That of course, in the tone I am learning to hear as. Of course, black lives, matter but not enough for me to have any risk in change. Enough to disrupt the status quo. And so when we talk about line order, which, of course, like in a vacuum, I want businesses to not have to board their windows up I want people to be able to safely be on the streets whether that is in the context of protests or in the context of a kid riding a bike home from school or whatever it is. Of course, I want people to be safe in the streets. I also though think it is. Deliberately. Willfully misleading. To, come through the TV as the Republican National Convention extending a hand to white suburban women me saying we can just keep the status quo and Malaga everybody who doesn't like it and things will be fine. Because the truth is we're escalating right now in part because when police shoot a man like Jacob Lake in the back. We don't have leadership that will even say the words let alone take the actions necessitated by that kind of injustice. There's a couple of things that really bother me about the way they were talking about the status quo particularly with this sort of unrest you know. You're right. Some types of protests bring the risk of violence, but it's like the presence of A. Crime. Even during protests doesn't make every protester criminal. And is that leap of logic and that leap of talking about it when they do this law and order dance. That really bothers me and the idea that. Law and order is not only white suburban women's. Priority but it's their only priority. You know I'm listening to the end of Nice white parents. And that moment where she says will they decided to interact with the school system not as a consumer that wants the best for their kid. But as a citizen that wants the best for every kid and I thought home I, mean, we talk about that a lot here. We talk about politics as consumption we talk about citizenship. And I, just think like we all have to lean into that because fear will cloud our judgment fear will cloud our friends and family members judgment. And we have to keep. Speaking. That word speaking that priority out. because. One it's not good. For our children. To prioritize. Their safety and comfort above all else. That's the first thing that's not good or healthy for anybody. And it's Toxic it's how we got here. All this is this nine, hundred, sixty, eight again. Drives me insane because it's not like we don't know how that ended. We elected Richard. Nixon. And he was corrupt. And Unethical we doubled down on, incarceration. And harassment of entire communities of our country, and this is how we got here and you know what I want for my kids. I don't want them back here in forty years bemoaning the state of race relations in the United States and worrying about law and order I don't want that for them. I? Don't want that for them. and. It's like this momentum's the narrative of like. Are we just going to repeat this? Are we GONNA are? Really bad because this is happening in Wisconsin because Oh my gosh. People just want to feel safe. Of course, they WANNA feel safe everybody wants to feel safe. But is that all you want to feel Do you WANNA. Feel safe and sorrowful. Feel safe in full of shame. At the sacrifices made because of your demographics concerns, I, don't I'm tired of feeling like that. I don't WanNa. Feel like that. Anymore. I certainly don't want my kids to feel like that. It's just exhausting and I. Really wish. We could flip the script instead of doubling down on all this language that was used at the convention. It is a false promise of safety too because safety for whom and from what? What. Messages have. We sent a seventeen year old who straps on a rifle drives to another state and says, I'm here to defend the state like that's not there's nothing safe in that. When we have police officers who say to militia members hey, thanks for hanging out here the. Faith in that, there is no safety here for my family or for anyone else's when that's the approach that we're taking. Yes. We have a right to defend ourselves and our property and I think we need to question hard how far we go in defending our property because I think other people matter more even people who wish to do harm to our property. But we do not have a right to defend other people's property. We do not have. Any. Obligation. Or entitlement. To grab our guns and drive wherever we think someone who looks different than we are have a message that might. Hypothetically be threatening. To other people who look like us, this is ridiculous framework for the world that we've have created and so yes, I want law and order but I wanted to be a truer law and order than the one that we're being sold but I think it is important not to underestimate the effectiveness of this message to a certain part of the populace because we you and I can sit here all day talking about how offensive we find it and I do it makes me mad. But There are people for whom that message gets in. And I think are wrong in our lives with those people who we love is to say. I hear you I think of it is reasonable to be afraid when we see images like the ones that we're seeing on TV right now can I share other things that I think it's reasonable to be afraid of I think it's reasonable to be afraid when you see people down when they're turned away from police officers, you know I think we just have to acknowledge that a lot of us are operating from a place of enormous fear right now of course, we are because we're living through multiple pandemics and A true unrest, not just in our civilization but in our planet, you know there are just so many threats more than our brains can even process. So when we're talking to someone who we love and surely do not understand. I think it's good for us to all just name our fears and put them on the table and say like, okay now that we have all these fears on the table, what is the next step?.

"The hurricane in Texas and Louisiana, and the first three nights of the Republican National Convention as happened last week the schedule of the convention does not work very well with our schedules. So we're GONNA talk about the first three nights that we've watched. We will watch tonight we're recording on. Thursday the final night with hopefully many of you on hot mic and if there's anything else we want to mention about that we will do so on media or on the show next week. But today we're going to cover what we've seen so far I think we have a pretty good feel for what the thesis is from the RNC and so will dive into that for you get started. We do want to talk about. Hurricane, Laura. This was a category, four hurricane that hit the coast of Texas and Louisiana, and we are just sending all our love and light to that area of the country. These storms are getting more intense where here celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and you know the governors are finding more intense ways of saying no for real you guys you have to evacuate and it sounds like people listened. There will still be a massive amount of property damage and there are already reports that several Americans have lost their lives and so we're just thinking about the people of Texans and Louisiana, right now we're. Also thinking about the people of Kenosha Wisconsin and particularly Jacob Blake in his family and everyone who is struggling in the unrest that has followed the shooting of Jacob Blake you know i. have been really moved several of the email newsletters that I follow showed a particular business owner boarding up his business and then painting something beautiful on the front and talking about how he really wants people to have a different view of his town. This is a hard moment because reporting on it is challenging it is easy to say. We. have protests that turned violent. And something that Sarah talked about on our instagram morning news briefing that I think we should pick up on here is that it's not entirely accurate to say that protests turn violent. What is more accurate is to say that often protests are an opportunity for people who wished to do violence to show up and bring that to the place where protest is happening and. That certainly seems to be what's taken place in. Kenosha. Wisconsin. As we have this seventeen year old who went as part of a militia effort from another state and I don't want to talk about his name or give him any moment in the spotlight here because he walked into another state dressed to be a participant in a real world video game and committed homicide. So Is really important to recognize that he is not a symptom of a protest turn violent. He is someone who brought violence to a place where protests was happening I. Just I feel like when people talk about this. In. particularly in that way, I, Kinda, WanNa say if you've been to a protest like I went to a protest in Paducah, there were some teenagers who were kind of hyped up on the energy afterwards they drove around and they broke some windows. Are we one cohesive day am I responsible for their behavior? Is The black lives matter movement responsible for their behavior? Even though they say explicitly, we are decentralized nonviolent movement. I just think about talking about protests as it is this cohesive group and everyone moves as one is not you know it's Kinda. How I feel about conspiracies human beings don't work like that where. A lot of things. Cohesive is often not one of them and so I just I i. wish we sort of Strip that language or the protests turned violence. There was violence and there were peaceful protests and let's make sure that we are being clear about what happened where and the factors that led to the violence, and the fact that there were peaceful protests before. Or the fact that there were police officers present what was their role? I mean I just think there's all these inputs into a violent act and to try to reduce it down to an easy storyline. Even when it serves, you know your political purpose as the violence from the Bugaboo Movement in Oakland and the violence here in Kenosha does like it would just have to be really careful and I totally agree. particularly. About this kid because that's what he was a seventeen year old is a child and so I just feel like we need to be really careful when we're talking about this now I will say Beth. I don't feel there was a lot of careful language in the first three nights of the Republican National Convention particularly when it comes to this idea of violent protests and quote unquote law and order. Now and I WANNA be a realist. There are forms of protests that are not peaceful and that happens and I don't WanNa be accused of or actually denying that but I do WanNa be clear around the fact we understand this in lots of context that there are certain types of activity that create conditions that incite. That invite criminals into an easy opportunity and yes, protests carries those risks and a lot of the ACTA protest is deciding the message that I have to share is worth whatever risk comes to me. As part of sharing it and I, think I feel very manipulated because it was clear to me watching the RNC that I am the intended audience for it. I'm almost forty I live in the suburbs I'm a white woman with two small children. And I felt. Coming through the screen this hand extended to say don't you want everything in your life to stay as easy as possible?.

Many have largely ignored the virus that has killed nearly one hundred, eighty thousand Americans despite the fact that it continues to seriously disrupt life in the United States including their own event. Others like White House Economic Adviser Larry Cudlow referred to the pandemic in the past tense. It was awful. Kudlow said on August. Twenty Fifth Health and economic impacts were tragic hardship and heartbreak were everywhere but presidential leadership came swiftly and effectively with an extraordinary rescue for health and safety to successfully fight the covert virus. When Vice President Mike Pence took the stage Wednesday night. His speech was a striking example of the trump administration's attempts to reframe the history of the pandemic that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide and nearly ground the American economy to a halt. Thanks to the courage and compassion of the American people we are slowing the spread. We are protecting the vulnerable and we are saving lives and we are opening up America again, pence said speaking at Fort mckenry in Baltimore. Maryland because of the strong foundation that president trump poured in our first three years we've already gained back. Three million jobs in the last three months alone. Pence was named chair of the White House Coronavirus Task Force in late February experts point to the failure to set up a speedy and functional testing and tracing system the inconsistent guidance coming from the white. House on mask wearing and other crucial mitigation measures and the early push to reopen states as costly misteps and the administration's response to the virus in August more than six months after covid nineteen began sweeping through the US. The country continues to lead the world and confirmed cases of COVID nineteen and number of deaths. Americans have experienced unemployment rates unseen since the Great Depression the US will almost certainly surpass two hundred thousand deaths from the virus before the election. Until a vaccine is approved testing are hampering reopening throughout the country. For the trump administration, it's a dire situation just over two months before election day according to polls tracked by five thirty, eight, Fifty, eight point, two percent of Americans disapprove of Donald Trump's corona virus response compared to thirty eight point seven percent who approve and that disapproval has been steadily rising since the US surpassed ten thousand deaths and April. Most of the political speakers Wednesday night of talking about the pandemic entirely neither senior White House aide, Kellyanne Conway nor Second Lady Karen Pence mentioned covid nineteen explicitly both made only an oblique reference to everyday American heroes including healthcare workers, teachers, and frontline workers, Representative Elise, Stefanik New York didn't mention the virus,.

"Speak truth to him about that. Listen when Joe and I talked about the state of Black America, he has a deep sense of awareness and knowledge about racial disparities, inequities and systematic racism and Joe Speaks the words and actually knows how to say the words black lives matter. Contrary to what the President United States, the current President United States does, which is so hate and division full-time and has never spoken those words and will never speak the words black lives matter. You can talk to Joe. He's been outspoken on those issues and I know where his heart is.

Virulent racist former cleanse members right exactly. I mean look senator. Harris was the number one critic of Joe Biden last summer.

Biden was kind of a racist sympathizer and now she's Trying to make the argument that Joe Biden is the exact opposite of that and when she has challenged, she was talented in a recent interview..

"Reality is what it is and you know well, we agree inherited the worst economy ever. Okay. Well, source recovery since the forties. and You you know literally lowest Labor participation rate thirteen, million more Americans on food stamps is at an accomplishment. I. Would say getting jobs and creating jobs. That's the accomplishment. Because now, everybody's invested in the American dream with hope and their own life in their own destiny in their own skills and their own talents. You know. So I mean there's there's You see little flashes of what they they can't get away from. President even saying. Buttons elected China will own this country. Well, we already saw the relationship with China and the Biden's. At Zero. Experience Hunter get that one, billion dollar Bank of China deal. You know I would think Goldman Sachs and Deutsche. Bank. And any any of the big financial houses would be better candidates to partner with the Bank of China. You Know Biden said memory she was ignorant of his record into debate attack memory said that during the first debate when she just she memorized that line, she looked tim data knee I. Way She delivered the line that was written in prepared memorized, and now they're best friends. It's a little disingenuous to me. Joe Biden was asked by Robin Roberts on his black common answer I shouldn't have said it. I. Think. It's far more incendiary. Praise of the guy that's filibustered the Civil Rights Act of sixty four or working with the former Klansman who filibustered the civil. Rights. Act was against the Voting Rights Act. Ought to work on stopping immigration schools because he didn't want kids going to school at a racial jungle, his words. As now again, been accused of plagiarizing Canadian politician this time not Neil Kinnock. Remember the one there. Anyway a CBC news. You know in in Canada pointed out the similars on twitter not Biden's first brush with plagiarism plagiarism. We also did it with Robert Kennedy and British party leader Labor leader near Kinnock. And why am I the first kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? And Biden just did it word for word and kept going through the entire list? Now they're saying the exact same thing when he gave us, you know teleprompter speech on Thursday night love is more powerful than hate hope is more powerful than fear light is more powerful than the dark. Okay what he said the Canadian politician. Jack Layton is his name. My friends love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear optimism better than despair. I'll let you decide.

Information I have it's going to be Joe Biden and the Democrats vicious attacks they will. There will be counterattacks there will be in other words, truth will be told. You know it was weird assault Bama. Said Biden's goals are not that different from Bernie Sanders. He said an interview. If you look at Joe Biden's goals, Bernie Sanders goals, they're not that different. From a forty thousand foot level he said, they don't WanNa make sure everyone has health care. Everyone has a get a job as a living wage. Okay I I've gone through how I don't think Clinton Bill. Clinton. Could get elected president on the positions he held when he ran in nineteen, ninety two and I don based on you know some of Barack Obama's positions. I don't think he could get elected woody hold those positions no I think he hit his radicalism. I. Think Hillary had her radicalism. But remember Bernie Sanders was an outlier. He was an outcast. He was a an annoyance in many ways even an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. And he was tolerated and you know barely tolerated at that and accepted because they needed his vote as often as they could get it just a fact. So he's the mainstream of this new radical socialist democratic, party. La Mayor Biden's economic plan is the most progressive..

Rather, than deal with it, it's you know this. Conspiracy Donald Trump is trying to stop voting if I was at the DNC convention last week. I would have needed a photo ID. To get in every day.

"So I can see. American exceptionalism American greatness. I think this is GonNa be the biggest. Contrast in terms of conventions that maybe we'll ever see in our lifetime note. I just can't imagine based on what we're hearing about what's going to happen. at the Republican convention that it's going to be any anything other than that. and. Anyway. So they have a very specific that's going to be laid out. What is their agenda? On jobs, what is their agenda to help business? What is their agenda to increase wages and enact more fair trade deals to protect American jobs? What is? How do we bring manufacturing back? What is what are the advancements in terms of covert and of course, therapeutics and status of of the final phase, human trials of vaccines and energy independence and of course, ending all reliance on China because we learned how unreliable they are and have been for a long time. The only person that was out there in front on China was a guy by the name of Donald J, trump. What how do we deal with the health care crisis in large part caused by the disaster known as Obamacare millions, losing their doctors, their plans, and you know all of us pay on average two, hundred percent more how do we get lower prices? Prescription Drugs President has said over and over and over again preexisting conditions will be protected in spite a democratic rhetoric. how do you lower the? Well, we've discussed that in detail healthcare savings accounts accounts are a friend Dr Josh Number Healthcare Cooperatives, how do we? How do we fix our delapidated broken down school system in the country? Well, school choice would be a good start. Why did the Democrats and teachers unions resist it. because they have an unholy alliance teachers, unions guaranteed to give x millions and millions of dollars Democrats help him stay in power and they get to perform at a level that is unconscionably I mean. Awful. And they're taking away the you know, what is the the ladder to success? So many of our kids especially in in big cities all across this country. Yeah. The ones were all the violence that's taking place that they ignored last week to Yeah. We spend more per capita on education than any other country on the face of the earth and he'd be App thirty-seven to fortieth in terms of where we stand for the money we spend what about policing in this country what about draining the swamp forever how do we? Clean it out once and for all and protecting our borders and protecting American workers and innovation and an America. First foreign policy that has served the president well. The theme for the Republican National Convention is going to be honoring the great American Story. And it's going to be told by a lot of great Americans. You're going to have speakers I think most of them tonight, but you'll have people. That are speaking from from the world of politics but then you're gonNA have others.

All of it there is this is not hyperbole and it's funny. Maybe the one thing that we that I agree on what the Democrats and after they're totally pathetic and weak really low rated convention week because it was it was dull beyond anything. I've ever seen for convention. And why it's pretty simple. What they ignore the the the country, they just ignore it. Four straight nights coverage, they ignore it completely.

That allows US always to right wrongs correct injustices to become a more perfect union, which is what every American united should strive for. Yeah.
