"Sweat, drip down her back as the bus driver told her to move for a white lady. She said, absolutely not. We're not talking about Rosa Parks. We're talking about someone, they never wanted us to know. This is two minute black history, what you didn't learn in school. In 1955, 15 year old claudette colvin stood up for her right to sit where she pleased on a segregated bus. As police forcibly removed her from the bus, she kept yelling. It's my constitutional right. So why was her story cast aside? The NAACP considered using her case to advance their cause. But galvin was a poor and pregnant teenager. Unfortunately, the NAACP didn't think her story would be appealing. So they tapped NAACP secretary Rosa Parks to try the same action. According to colvin, quote, parks was an adult. They didn't think teenagers would be reliable. Kevin also reported that parks skin color and hair texture made her a better representation for the NAACP. Quote, her skin texture was the kind that people associate with the middle class. She fits that profile. Parks went on to become a civil rights icon. But colvin's story didn't become well known until decades later. Both women were crucial to the movement, but unfortunately, respectability politics dictated cold and story was not good enough for white approval. We must know that respectability politics won't save us. It only serves to hide the richness of our community and our humanity. Like colvin, we must know our worth and always stand up for our rights. In order to move towards the future, you've got to look to the past. This has been two minute black history, a podcast by push black.

The Degradation of Black America

"They alluded to the fact that Martin Luther King had another agenda. They had a hit and agenda. They would stage these protests. They would stage these marches. They would stage a situations where they can get beat up in the middle of the street and be arrested. They were pushing a Marxist agenda on our country. That's what people said. Man, you can turn a blind eye and say, oh, they wrong 'cause I don't like that unlike what they sound like. Or you could say, well, was it? Look at the look at the out of wet lock births. 22% back in the 30s to 40s, 2030s 40s. Now it's over 75, 76% after the civil rights movement. I want us to understand that. Look at the degradation of black America. Since the 60s, there was no, there was no drill music. Was it? No, no, it wasn't. This gangster rap hip hop music stuff. None of that. That didn't exist. Black people were not viewing themselves and being pimped out, like we see it happening more often today after the 60s. You know, there was a gentleman on Uncle Tom two. I don't remember his name. If you saw the movie you'll know what I'm talking about. He said that Rosa Parks, they make this big deal about Rosa Parks sitting at the front of the bus and before they were going to go out and do this, they had, they were questioning, why would we go there to try to ride on a white man bus? When we have our own bus line, what are we accomplishing? Why do we want to sit at the front of the white man's bus when we have our own bus line? And this is where default happened. And I'm going to need many segments to thoroughly unpack this. But this is where I believe some fault happen. Because instead of black folks building their bus line, they wanted to integrate in a bus line that was not profitable to them in their community. Maybe visually, it was an achievement there, but residually, I don't think it benefited the black community.

"A W CPT civil rights snapshot. We all know the story of Rosa Parks, but she was not the first woman of color to refuse to give up her seat. In 1884, Ida B wells was thrown off of a train after refusing to go to the back after buying a first class ticket. After this incident, wells began writing articles about the issues of race and politics in the south. Welles articles also talked about her time being a teacher in a segregated school, which later led to her being fired. Wells later turned her attention to anti lynching after three of her friends were murdered and hung before they could have a trial. Even traveling down to the south risking her own life to get information on lynching, taking her anti lynching campaign to The White House in 1898 and wouldn't be signed into law until 1918. Wells was a fighter for so many women and people of color. Just a little something to think about when you get off of two 90, please stay vigilant about our civil rights. The fight is never over. This is a T veteran minute. When Pearl Harbor was attacked, men of all races across the country volunteered to join the fight, despite the United States Army, being heavily segregated. Black enlistees were mostly assigned to combat support roles. But this didn't stop lieutenant colonel Paul L Bates, who knew of the racism and pushed his soldiers to achieve excellence. The 761st tank battalion was formed in the spring of 1942. It contained 30 black officers, 6 white officers, and 676 enlisted men. The

"Here in plain view and among you want to wear it. The altadena historical society sees the opportunity to honor Clark. Raising $8000 mostly from members of the black community to purchase a headstone and recognize her legacy. She served us even though she was back in the 1800s. She still serving us. Organizer Veronica Jones, one of the society's few black members, had another motive for seeking money from the black community. Contributors automatically became members of the society instantly diversifying the organization. I want to say when I reached out to my family, Friends, and community. Now, one person said, no, not one person said, no. Everybody wanted to be a part of this history, making event. Everybody wanted to know about Ellen garrison Clark. Clark's belated celebration of life was sent for Juneteenth. The holiday commemorating June 19th, 1865, when word of the Emancipation proclamation belatedly reached enslaved peoples in Texas.

Christina lenore Davis from Savannah state university in Georgia discovered Clark went to work for the Pennsylvania quakers in the 1870s, teaching in schools around North Carolina. The Robin's house museum in Concord established in the rustic building that once housed Clark and her family got grants to hire researchers. John hannigan, curator of the Massachusetts archives, learned that Clark moved a great bend Kansas in the 1880s to teach the exodusters. Formerly enslaved people who made an exodus to Kansas, looking for land while trying to escape racial violence in the south. Clark finally remarried in Kansas to a widowed settler named Harvey Clark. It was an old deed of sale for his homestead, discovered by great bend historical society researcher Karen P new forth. That led historians to learn that the Clarks moved to Pasadena, California around 1890. Hannigan went on to discover a few more details. The Clark died in 1892 and was buried in an unmarked grave at Mountain View cemetery. She had died from consumption tuberculosis at age 69 and may have come to California hoping for a warm weather cure has had thousands of others at that time. Researchers couldn't find any more details about the final months of Clark's life. But all were shocked to discover that her grave didn't have a headstone. The Robin's house museum offered to buy a marker, but the cemetery initially refused. That required permission from next of kin, but Clark never had children. As far as.

"Cynthia is charter members of the conquered female antislavery society in 1837. Susan garrison was the only black member of the group, and she hosted its second meeting in her home. So activism was a family habit. By the time Clark was 15, she was signing petitions demanding equal rights for Native Americans and advocating desegregation of Massachusetts trains and Boston schools. She excelled at school and set her sights on teaching one of the few careers available to American women in the 1800s. In 1857, at age 34, Clark married John W Jackson, a free black farmer from Delaware, but he died a few years later. Teaching became her passion, she taught at a private school in Newport Rhode Island, but during the Civil War she felt a higher calling to work with the American missionary association to teach former slaves to read and write throughout Virginia and Maryland. She wrote in her application letter sirs, I have a great desire to go and labor among the freed men of the south. I think it is our duty as a people to spend our lives in trying to elevate our own race. The work was hard, teaching regular classes 6 days a week and religious lessons on Sundays. And outside of the classroom, Clark endured the daily indignities of racism. In one letter, she wrote, I have generally walked the streets unmolested. It is only occasionally that I have been beaten in stoned in the street. Clark also recounted a story of a man who stepped on her dress and complained she was walking too slowly on the sidewalk. He called her the N word and threatened to slap her on the mouth, but she did not retreat. I have found one thing about these people. If.

"Welcome to December 1st, 2021 on the national day calendar. Today we celebrate a civil rights game changer and giving to our furry Friends. While some states honor the birthday of this civil rights hero, others celebrate the day of her arrest. On December 1st, 1955, after a long day of work, Rosa Parks boarded a bus in Montgomery, Alabama. She sat in the colored section, but as the bus began to fill, the driver demanded that she give up her seat for other passengers. Rosa refused. She was arrested and was later found guilty of violating a city ordinance. What followed made civil rights history. Martin Luther King Jr. and others had organized the Montgomery bus boycott for the day of rose's trial. The boycott succeeded and lasted several months, devastating the transportation system in Montgomery. On Rosa Parks day, we honor the courage and heart of a woman that dared to change a nation. While you may not have room to adopt a pet this season, you can still be part of a holiday tradition that brings comfort and joy to millions of shelter animals through operation Santa pause. This month, we celebrate the spirit of giving to our four legged friends to make their stay a little bit brighter until they find their forever home. The cause encourages you to donate blankets, food, toys, and money that will make animals feel secure and cared for, which is an important part of keeping them adoptable. And if you're ready for a new family member, they can help you find that perfect pet. Look for operation Santa pause at your local shelters between now and December 24th to bring the holiday spirit to our furry Friends. This is so fun because I love to buy that stuff at the holiday time. Really? Yeah, my local PetSmart or whatever. It's fun. Make the little much keys happy. That's right. It's so easy. Tomorrow is national mutt day. If you feel like bringing one home, synchronicity. There you go. I managed to beer. I'm Marlo Henderson. Thanks for joining us as we celebrate every day. See you tomorrow.

"Don't have quiet lady who keeps whispering hush Like oh my God Hush hush yourself Yes Yeah yeah Yeah but yeah Very have you seen any of this at your kids school or So not at our school but I definitely I think that I am maybe one of the more permissive reading moms out there And so you know I have a ten year old who does actually wants to find books on his own which I'm grateful for And you know he came back I guess a year and a half ago with The Hunger Games And it caused us a little scandal on a text chain They felt like it was too old for him Well because he was singing the praises of it And their kids were like I want to read The Hunger Games and they were like and I think they were sort of at a moment where they didn't feel like they wanted to have a conversation about this sort of gladiatorial stuff with kids like that it was too violent and that I respectfully do disagree I mean the thing that is a pain when your child brings home something that is either too old for them or you don't think they understand properly I mean a lot of times if your kid brings home something that you think is problematic which they're gonna do then you're like oh crap now I gotta engage with them on this You know like with hunger games I had to say you know that's kind of crazy There's our kids killing kids like you know I had to have a conversation So the problem with being more permissive in that is that you have to engage more And my little one who's 8 is really into what he calls horror And I don't know what that is really to him but he's like into zombies and ghouls and I hate that stuff And I love that stuff Oh my God great especially that our age group 'cause he was like can you tell me the whole plot of it And I was like well surely I can do that And I did I was like I'm gonna spoil this book for you That's fine And I'm gonna cut out that terrible oh yeah They're bad things that happen and it's not for kids Yeah I mean so I told them the whole plot of it And then he said is there something that I can read that's for me And I thought okay well now I have to do the work of finding an 8 year old horror series So I will appreciate whatever you have to give me And he's already read scary stories to read in the dark Yes He's already read that Okay I'm trying to think of some more And she's good Kids ghost stories anthologies That's what I did I used to read a lot of ghost short stories And my mother did not like it You know she's very religious My babysitter at the time told her that she should not have been allowing me to read all of these demonic books She let me because you might end up working in public right now I might end up working in public right now talking about demons all the time That's amazing I mean you know I do think there's something about this like parental involvement Like in my kids school this hasn't come up It's you know most of the kids are lower income like 92% qualified for free and reduced lunch And I don't see this sort of movement here Not because I don't even think the parents may there may be certain things They don't want their kids to read I just don't feel like they have the time or the resources to do this I feel like this is a movement for people who have a lot of time Time and a lot of money And money and resources to really take And a lot of ego That they really think that they know what's best for all the other students Because I think even Aisha hearing you say that your mom didn't want you reading demonic books because of her own personal religious beliefs I don't know that she necessarily needed all of the books that had demons and had taken from all of the other students in the school You know there's a different point between what makes you uncomfortable as a parent And then what you think all other students in your school district should be allowed to read you know There's a distinction there That's right And that's the same because if you start letting parents make the decisions it sounds good but when the parents disagree then who wins Does it sound good It sounds like a lot of work to me It sounds like a lot of work but for some parents they're like yeah I want to have a say but then it's like okay well what about when this period disagree with you And what about the person over there Who you don't like And you know what I'm saying It gets complicated That's right So we had you guys look at some of these lists of band books And did you see some common threads What does it seem like people are trying to ban Are there some themes that keep popping up Yeah I saw a lot of books by black authors authors of color talking about race I saw a lot of books about and by queer authors particularly the more recent lists targeting trans and gender fluid authors I saw a lot of books weirdly about history just like general like Rosa Parks book you know books about things that I sort of thought were settled history which was a little shocking to me Well not a bad things happen in history We don't know Yeah But it's weird to be like okay let's re litigate ruby bridges I feel like we did this Yes I feel like we've come to a consensus on what that story is even if it's not the full true story that this is a generally okay civil rights moment that white people are now okay with talking about publicly So seeing things like that on there was definitely shocking to me And then things that had sex in them I was going to add another thing that I saw was the science stuff What's happening to my body For God's sake don't tell him Don't tell him Wash the sheets That to me is like come what You know this is and this is a good example You know I'm just sharing a lot today When I got my first period as a very young girl my mother's way of dealing with it was and I was also the kid who loved books and we were in school and a nerd She just gave me two books and she said here you go It was just like a it was like a picture book but it was like this is what happens when you get your period This is where babies come from And she just sent me on my way She didn't talk to me about him She just said Here you go I have a lot of respect for that you know Here's some sources Here's some sources Yeah I like it There you go you know And I read I did read it and there were pictures of people like with developing bodies It wasn't sexual It was just like this is how people develop Science It was science Right But I was felt I was very mature I didn't like you know draw any funny pictures on them 'cause I was mature I was like I'm not sure I can read this That's the way it made me feel like okay I'm very mature now I get it now This is one of these topics which brings up a lot of things that I think are funny but it's so deeply sad at its heart which is that I noticed one of the books on there was a book about developing bodies in Spanish There was something so just like you're gonna lock the door to so many That actually I got a lump in my throat about that What an unkind thing to do That one killed me Stay with us coming up We'll get into what to read and what you're good to skip on these band books list

"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. Growing up, I remember learning a pretty standard by the book explanation of American history. Which means that now, as an adult, I'm frequently surprised to find out that the stories I thought I knew I actually had all wrong. For example, I always thought that the story of Rosa Parks was of an older woman who decided that she'd had enough, and she refused to give up her seat at the front of a bus to a white man because she was tired after a long day of work. But as today's guest professor David ichord explains in his talk at TEDx Nashville, that is not how things actually happened. Here's a clip. I am the proud father of two beautiful children. When Elijah was in the fourth grade, he came to me, came home from school bubbling over with excitement about what he had learned that day about African American history. Now, I'm an African American and cultural studies, professor. And so as you can imagine, African American culture is kind of serious around my home. So I was very proud that my son was excited about what he had learned that day in school. So I said, well, what did you learn? He said, I learned about Rosa Parks. Okay, what did you learn about? Rosa Parks. He said I learned that Rosa Parks was this frail old black woman in the 1950s in Montgomery, Alabama, and she sat down on this bus and she had tired feet and when the bus driver told her to give up her seat to a white patron. She refused because she had tired feet and had been a long day and she was tired of oppression. And she didn't give up her seat, and she marched with Martin Luther King and she believed in nonviolence. And I guess he must have looked at my face and saw that I was a little less than impressed by his history lesson. And so he stopped. And he was like, dad, what's wrong? What did I get wrong? He said son, you didn't get anything wrong, but I think your teacher got a whole lot of things wrong. He said, what? I said, yes. Rosa Parks was.

No one resident blamed the bizarre and misguided quote or protest on on a comment that the whitest lady in the state county. Commissioner mary Start made about maxine passports being equivalent to jim crow last month. So this this is her boss speaking so while we don't allow segregation and discrimination based on on any other specific aspect of a person. Why would we say based your medical information. We're going to restrict access and segregates you. This these are the jim crow laws. Two point oh she's using the biden line except now about vaccine past because that's what her boss a weird game telephone and it got down to this lady coming with them. I don interface santa rosa parks at these morons. She's proud of that. She thought jim crow two point. Oh easier police that just a. Why called the georgia laws. That that's just not even originals. Well yeah georgia laws at least had something to do something kinda he. This was just oh man this lady ladies not the right thing to do so. She's mean you're going to be allowed back. No they're not letting your back. She's i mean because you leave. Well leave they do that because it's usually a policy. She's gonna be fine regardless of what you think. This is a political statement. This is just This is scary to leave your children with someone who who bastardize the making of points this badly anyway right because there's more did she think the special ed kids we're going to get what she was doing. No that's that's the that's the only good part about the story is the only that did see it with a special ed one could put then together because the first of all it's just insane but like well. Yeah but the whole nation now knows exactly what she did. I mean it's not like the other kids don't know asking was running around the hall. And i wonder if the civics history teacher approach conversation about who rosa parks is and what you think that she did that relates to your says. She's just saying like. I'm not going to get vaccinated. That makes me rosa parks according to my boss now in black face. Yeah whatever but not the only black face news. The week is justin trudeau. Prime minister candidates showed up in black face again. He did what. Yeah guys the photo that was released ahead of the i. Guess the recall election or wherever is doing up. There was the same photo or from the same arabian nights themed party where he was better picture. Urban and dark makeup angle from back in two thousand one trudeau apologized in two thousand nineteen when images from that. Same gal emerged shortly before an election. Saying the buck stops with me. This photo is essentially the same. Just shows trudeau having a lot more fun. It's clear photo. How happy he's having. A blast pool is having a blast. He'll love that outfit. Upset at this is the old rules this hour executing weeks to plan all right. So i gotta. I gotta give it to trudeau here. Essentially okay so trudeau. This was keeping. This was twenty years ago but still not okay. however he's highly educated and should know better but the twenty years ago. i think that's pretty much equivalent. I think he's got the equivalent of the lady trudeau showing up twenty years ago and faces the same as some dumb ass. Elementary school special. Ed teacher showing up today in rosa parks very stupid very offensive. Should took it over the top with the rosa parks at least troodos being like a like a literary character there. I mean like rosa parks is an actual human being right. That like you know like you say you don't compare yourself like that'd be like one of us trying to say we're like martin luther king suffering like absurd for an ass like there should be an app for for some people that maybe don't have friends or all their friends. The exact same belief system type thing where they can ask people. If it's a good idea or not called sounded good idea or not. You can rate the people this on their good advice. So this person's a four five magic people. If this app would work would told her. It was a bad idea or they would have been like brilliant for us. Those would eventually eventually those people get caught out as being fun idea ever got enough rally behind it just to see what happens but if you did it like next door. We have to verify their address with a postcard. A it's a smart idea. Take some more because she might this special ed teacher. I don't think i think she's got her cat and her glass of white wine and then she thinks this is a great idea and she didn't ask anyone that do you think maybe she was doing her. Makeup women do we'll driving to work and then slipped and got a little bit of like bronze interfacing just kept going with it. Saying i'm going to stand behind tales. Either i just remembered it. There was there was similar. Takes going on after. It was after the texas abortion laws. That's what was going on. That's when that's when those takes from people to stay away from that. Don't compare yourself to like Historical legendary like fighter of civil rights. Because you're you have some type of inconvenience today you know. Just just just stop. It's more things are pretty big inconvenience. But let's just stop it in. General was wearing yourself to like roic history. Yeah okay don't do it in general guys..

How Billy Graham Stood Against Segregation

"Greg laurie. You said to me before we came on the air. that billy. Graham was very very ahead of his with race relations. Talk about that because a lot of people don't know the history i mean. I've tried to write in a couple of my books. william wilberforce An amazing grace and others that when you really believe what the bible says you you cannot be racist but a lot of people didn't live that out but billy graham did at a time when it was very very divisive in difficult in the country. Talk about that. Yeah well he was. The son of the south he was from north carolina raised in charlotte. And of course we know that there was there was a lot of racial division and all of the nation but especially there but as billy begin as crusades people wanted to hold segregated meets not letting black people into the meeting until the white people were. Billy said i will not speak to in a segregated meeting. I want an immigration and our meetings and they refused any literally came down and took down the little ropes and things that were dividing the crowds and he got some people upset with him but he also when he was really at the peak of his popularity had martin. Luther king do an opening prayer at the medicine square garden that was highly controversial. A because king was was not you know. He was not popular with a lot of people in the south of for ability to allow king. That role was ignificant people have. I watched a documentary on. Pbs the other. Day about billy graham. It was just recently done. They got so many things. Wrong historically factually and one of the things they pointed out was sort of like billy missed his opportunity during the civil rights movement and that is so untrue because even he and dr king agreed that the best way that he could help is by using his influence in his crusades is. Dr king was out on the streets and they were doing their peaceful protests and marches and rosa parks. And some of the other others. Billy misery supportive of this but they built. They were more effective in their spheres of influence. And in fact. Billy was a real innovator at that time and i thought that documentary was not accurate as they reported and spent a lot of time reporting that part of his

Anita, why hasn't a woman ever help this honor before? That's a great question? You know, they've been doing this tradition since 18 52. And it hasn't been as many people as you might think. It's been about 35. So a lot of presidents, you know other other people, but mostly are obviously this is always for someone who serves in the government. Four civilians have also been honored, but it's not called lying in state. So Congress decides who does this, and, you know, obviously many elected officials in this country until more recently were men. Well, Devlin before the capital Justice Ginsburg lay in repose of the Supreme Court. Can you describe this remembrance was like and who came to pay their respects? Well, pretty much the entire city came to respect it. And it was. It was an interesting Mix because it began as sort of a spontaneous, Ah, demonstration of support remembrance that the very night of her death outside the Supreme Court. And then obviously it morphed into the official pageantry of remembrance. And, you know, I think I think the video that is probably going to be most lasting from that is People chanting against the president when he showed up, you know, I think it says something about the state of our politics right now, that even in you know, a memorial setting That the political anger is so great that people are going to essentially boo the president public. On DH That just tells you what the stakes are of that. You know, her death is obviously sad, and obviously a moment in history. But it's also another. You know another front in this political battle that were that were following Fernando what he tells about Justice Ginsburg's funeral plans and and where shall ultimately be laid to rest? Um, she will be laid to rest on Arlington National Cemetery next to her husband, Marty Ginsburg than in section that is reserved for Former members of the Supreme Court. And today, the Friday will be the on Ly Day that she will be lying in state in the U. S Capitol and the need a set of historic moment is the first woman first person was Jewish Delight in state.

Talk about how that's impacting people where you are and what you saw, but it's hard to underestimate His impact on the civil rights leader. He was literally one of think a gang of six lieutenants under Martin Luther King back in the sixties, and at the time I think he may have been 25 26 years old Martin Luther King was only in his early thirties. When he gave his I have a dream speech, and we forget, you know, there's such towering figures were way think that they were much older than they were. And John Lewis died at 80 has had this incredibly long career. Hey, was beaten to within an inch of his life defending their right to vote and equal rights. For African Americans. This man is a hero. His bravery is is just breathtaking. One comment. I read from a colleague of his today and I was really taken with, she said. It was during the time of the hippies when John Lewis forever wore a three piece suit and carried a briefcase because he wanted to be taken seriously and thought to be ah, involved with important stuff. And you don't see that much anymore. And not only that, but hey also recalled that when he was arrested for civil disobedience, certainly not violence, but simply Protesting and using his first Amendment right to speak up. He always smile for the mug shot because he goes, I didn't do anything wrong. Why should I be doing anything about smiling here truly one of a kind of the benefit of all Americans then and now you go ahead and what's astonishing is that President Trump once again? Is not doing anything to pay his respects to this American icon. Hey, was asked, the president was asked if he was going to go up to the capital to pay respects to John Lewis, who was lying in state. They're one of I think only three African Americans to ever do that Rosa Parks. And Ah, uh, Thurgood Marshall. I think you were the other two. And he the president goes. No, I'm not going to no explanation. No comments about John Lewis. And, of course, he and John Lewis. We're not B f F S. John Lewis famously did not show up to the President's in all your old saying that he thought he was an illegitimate president. That he thought that he or at least the Russians did everything they could to get him elected and that it wasn't a legitimate presidency. He was going to attend the inaugural A good opportunity if nothing else, and this is a crass way to look at it to score some points. And we're all taught from a very early age. We show respect for those who have passed on it. It seems like an easy opportunity for the president take advantage of well. The president has not done that. For many leaders who died over the last couple years. John McCain, notably He did not was not invited to the funeral but didn't even bother to crash He was playing golf at his name escapes me now the congressman from Maryland who died another African American civil rights leader. Also had clashes with the president. He did not show up for that, then think I think the only major funeral that President Trump has shown up for was George H. W. Bush.

Interview With Jeffrey Howard On The Coronavirus Situation In the United STates

"Joining me to discuss the latest twist and turn stateside is the political philosopher and US politics expert at UC L. A Good Friend of Monaco Twenty Four Geoffrey Howard Jeffrey. Good morning to you. You're listening to that. I was quite striking. Some of Ed had to say it's been tracking obviously trump's presses in this kind of thing this idea that he's oscillating between attack mode and a more conciliatory tone on the latter. It's not something that he does particularly. Well it people. We're talking just a couple of weeks ago that we're seeing a new tone from the president on this topic and people wondered whether this was a a moment of pivoting to a more conciliatory manner may be one. That would be bipartisan. That would engage people on both sides of the Aisle. A but every time people think that that's happening We're disappointed within hours. And the president reverts to really what his is natural tendency which is to be compatible. Cabada to be extremely defensive into interpret any attempts to have a thoughtful inquiry about the best next steps regarding this price process as a criticism of his administration. Well to that point and then Jeffrey do you go along with this reading. Because perhaps of essentially a lack of national strategy on this trump is happy to play this. Blame game you know. He's got governors Left and right. Oh it must be said in his in his crosshairs. Is that what? He's decided his way to deflect that. Scrutiny that you mentioned that is to simply turntables on a on governors and of course the regions and say you know. These are the people who are letting the nation down. There's no doubt that his intention is to declare victory and then point whatever bad fallout transpires. And of course they're always been already been thousands dead point two governors and say it was their fault. I think that's clearly. His strategy take responsibility for the good stuff for the progress. That's been made and place responsibility for all the bad stuff on the governor's and we're already seeing him. Turning this debate into a kind of culture war. Such that one's position on the lockdown Will be a matter of partisan affiliation so It was so striking Lake Friday that he tweeted out. Liberate Minnesota Liberate Michigan Liberate Virginia What's he talking about? So He's essentially encouraging the public to disobey State Public Health Advisories and stay at home orders. Many of which his own administration Encouraged the creation of and. I think it's important to remember here in the context of the battle against Corona virus. That it it's not about you when the government tells you to stay home of it's not about restricting your freedom in order to make your life go worse. It's about the moral obligation. All of us have not to endanger one another by spreading the transmission of the virus and thereby risking infecting others and therefore risking the overwhelming of hospitals and the fact that he couches it in terms of liberation That he couches this requirement that people look out for one another in the community is tantamount to oppression is is so striking. I think one of the worst things I saw in the last few days is a quote by Stephen Moore. Who's of one of the White House advisers to trump on corona virus new called the protesters quote? Modern Day Rosa Parks. They're protesting against injustice at a loss of liberties and quote. Rosa parks being famous civil rights activists of the African American woman. Who In nineteen fifty five famously sat at the front of the the busted. The whites only section. Right it's just absurd to be calling people who are literally endangered one another Tantamount to Rosa parks. But that's where we're at. That's where I'm struggling through the process. That comparison in my mind Jeffrey. Let's move on just in terms of I mentioned rounded up this show. It's hard to see that trump has anything other than the general election later this year In his personal crosshairs. And you can see how this fits his old narrative his this this rabble-rousing citing the second amendment in tweets. And this stuff you said about oppression and liberation again designed to play too and I use the quote marks his base. Do we know how both his really hard coal committed supporters Following him suggestions are that his poll ratings are are off amongst that demographic but with anyone who may be I don't know if flip-flopping little or or or or open to possibly voting Democrat in the Autumn House this actually playing this narrative especially this crazy new authoritarianism. I guess you'd call it. I mean what's striking about these? These protests does that. They're certainly attempting to appear. Grass roots. There certainly the kinds of scrappy movements of people that suggests that it was a a bunch of people on who just decided to get up and go out in protest. But if we've learned that's not quite true. We know that. For example the Michigan protests were explicitly funded by organizations like the Michigan Conservative coalition. The Michigan Freedom Fund of quite striking that the Michigan Conservative coalition also goes by the name the Michigan Trump Republicans according to the Washington Post. So it looks like this is not really grassroots. It's what we would instead. Call ask her turf. Fake grass roots at a concerted attempt by powerful interests to make. It seem like the people are rising up. And I think it's a difficult question because generally speaking we're having widespread compliance would stay at home. Orders were not having tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people out in the streets protesting relatively speaking. The protests are somewhat small but online. They have a very large presence on facebook. They have a very large presence. And I think already we're seeing the president. You Use Corona virus as a way to whip up agitation against mostly Democratic governor so in Michigan for example. The governor is Gretchen Whitmer. Who's a democrat? Who's been named as a potential potential vice presidential pick for Joe Biden? A very popular Democratic Governor Michigan and she has absolutely in trump's crosshairs in terms of his rhetoric and he's very much Trying to lower her public opinion in the state and lower the public opinion of other democratic governors around the country. And I think it's not that trump oscillates between a mood where he's thinking about how we genuinely solve this public health crisis and then shifts to the political register to think about how the politics plays out. He's I think always in the political register he's always thinking about how this impacts his popularity how it impacts his electoral prospects in November November twenty twenty and it seems all decisions are being made in light of that well given that then Jeffrey. What are the prospects to the US? It's interesting if you track the data points this weekend. It just seems they've kind of another grim allstone North of forty thousand deaths. Which is I think over. A quarter of the global total Three quarters of a million infections which I think is more than a third of the global total feels out of control with his focus so unrelenting unrelentingly on domestic political maneuverings is there a risk that the US doesn't develop a coherent strategy in the weeks. Ahead I mean. There isn't a coherent strategy even now so the president has outlined a three step phased reopening of the economy that he's encouraging governors to to pursue a book. Governors are very insistent that you have to link the reopening of the economy with testing. And we know that there have been considerable. Shortages of testing kits considerable shortages of supplies of the governors have been complaining about this. We know that that particular issue has been a disaster where states have been trying to bid against one another. They've been trying to bid against various government agencies rather than having a unified federal response. And because of that. I think it's going to push the reopening later and later now I think what seems likely is that trump is going to say. We need to do this. We need to move forward and states with trump loyalists as governors will move. We already saw beaches reopening in Florida. Just this past weekend now. It looked like people were practising reasonably good social distancing on those beaches but the point remains that if trump says let's reopen. Let's do it now. A lot of Republican states are GonNa follow suit and then you might have a really terrible situation where you have states that favor the president in greater peril than states that don't favor the president and I think it's just a very sad state of affairs that you have people who like the president who were essentially being lied to by the President about what's in their own Public Health interest in. What's actually going to protect people in their communities. Jeffrey is Great. Salt with you as always. That was our friend. Geoffrey
