SUV Plows Into Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin
"And as we dive into this horrific horrific crime in walker Shaw Wisconsin, this act of evil that almost brings us all collectively to our knees to think about that beautiful, beautiful, celebration that kicked off the holidays, the annual walker shot Christmas parade, the dancing grannies. There was at least one fatality. Attributed to one of the grandmothers and the dancing grannies, of course, there were children, bad members, want you to remember that good always triumphs over evil. And there's a couple of things you could take away from what happened in walker Shaw. I am very mindful of seeing swarms of people immediately tend to those who were fallen those on the ground. The videos and the videos are very difficult to watch. And I'm sorry if you watch us on Salem news channel, I want to be sure that we warn you that the video is graphic. There's lots of video of this red Ford escape, plowing into this crowd of people and but we feel like you should be able to see it. Evil is real, evil is around us, but good is too. And one of the things that I was struck by was watching all of the people tending immediately to those who were injured and dying, just an awful
America's Political Left Explodes After Kyle Rittenhouse Acquitted
"A moment. Of course, the other big breaking story that happened after we left you Friday, Kyle rittenhouse found not guilty on all counts. And again, the beast is wounded. If you're a new listener, I call the media, I call academics. I call Hollywood. I call the I call the big media machine, the Democrats. I call them the beast. And sometimes the beast gets injured and the beast houses in protest because the race baders over on MSNBC didn't like the outcome. They had a very predictable response. Here's one of their stars at MSNBC, despicable, despicable response by a woman named Tiffany cross. Ellie, I'm disgusted at what I'm saying. It's not just this trial. It's other trials, but this in particular, the fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws. They represent legislative branch of this country. What are we to make of that? She's given a camera and a microphone and a platform to be on national television, and she spews that kind of bile of just just garbage. That little white supremacist are you kidding me? And it got even worse, consider her guest. Ely miss stall. This happened because this is what the white justice system was designed to do, all right? This is not a miscarriage of justice. This is justice working as intended for white people. And the way you know that is because of the judge. The reason why I was able to predict that was because of the judge. The judge was in the tank from the defendant from the jump. I mean, literally before the trial, he was making motions and making rulings in favor of rittenhouse. He continued that bias throughout the trial. That's without even getting into his maga ring tones without even getting into his off color Asian jokes. Not even getting into all of that, his actual decision making favored the defendant the entire time. By you. I can't even get angry at this anymore. I feel nothing but pity for these pathetic, pathetic people. I honest to goodness. I do. I feel sorry for them. You know, if a jury verdict came down, and the shoe was on the other foot, and it was a black kid. Accused or on trial for shooting white people. Oh my gosh. If anybody on Fox News or newsmax or what America news or the Salem radio network or sale of news channel, dared to say one tenth of what those people say about this white kid in Kenosha, all hell would break loose. All hell would break loose. These people are to be pitied,
Salem Radio's Carl Jackson Describes His Educational Journey
"Talking to crawl Jackson who identifies as a black man, and I want to respect that Carl. So I'm going to use the pronoun U, which is second person. For he, when I talk to you because you asked me to and I respect you. Yeah, your story is fascinating. So okay, you are starting to wake up. You're listening to talk radio. And you just were mentioning that you bumped into my amazing grace book, which came out I guess 2007. I don't know how that affected you. But how in the world did you bump into that book? I don't know where were you at in 2007? You know, I got to tell you, it just listening to more talk radio. I'm listening to Christian radio. I'm pretty sure I heard an interview of yours if I'm not mistaken. But anyway, I was prompted to get the book. I just wanted to learn more about it. The things that you were saying, I didn't know any of this stuff. I hadn't heard any of this stuff. I didn't know who William wilberforce was and I had never heard of the guy. And I got to tell you from reading, I read people like star Parker, Larry elder, Thomas, all Walter Williams. And I was learning all of this history that I had never heard of, and I got to tell you Eric, I got upset because I went through Los Angeles unified school district, and I felt like I didn't learn crap to be honest with you. I'm like, I never learned India. Look, I say the same thing everywhere I go, that everything that I have discovered. I think I mentioned it with the is atheism dead book. But the story of bernhardt for the story of wilberforce, the stories that I wrote in my book, if you can keep it about America, why doesn't everyone know this? Why did I learn this? It's kind of shocking when you realize it. And it does make you wake up and say, I need to tell the world, everyone needs to know this because if you don't know this, how can you possibly function or think clearly amidst the madness? But anyway, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has that response. Yeah, it was, you know, just reading more. It was obviously eye opening, and then as you read more and learn more, it becomes easy to figure out who's deceiving you and who's not whether it's radio, whether it's television, wherever or wherever it may be politicians. You know, it's funny to me, but reading, it is, it's true what they say. Reading takes you to a different place to a different world. And that's exactly what began to happen
Liverpool Explosion: Blast Is Declared a Terrorist Act
"In Liverpool, a cabbie notices that his passenger appears to be a suicide bomber. And we're putting up the tape. If you have downloaded the Salem news channel, you will now be watching the video of what happened. The Salem news channel is an app that you ought to get every day because I show you videos like this that no one else in America asks because they don't get up early enough to do the news. So in Liverpool, the cabbie gets a guy gets into his car and he looks him in the back. You know, cabbies, we'll get you. Look at they always look into way and they say, who is this guy in my car? Because he looks like Lex Luthor meets the band director. And so this guy gets in the car and he figures out that the direct, the direction being given, he Edmund quota, his name is Dave Perry. Somehow the terrorist suicide bomber gives it away. Maybe his coat was bulked up. So I want to go to remembrance Sunday at the hospital. He wanted to go to somewhere where they were doing. It's called remembrance Sunday and Great Britain. They also have an 1111 remembrance day, but then the Sunday after there are church services and gatherings in its poppy day, where you wear the red poppy and remember it's a World War I. Cabbie figures it out. Drives to where he figures he can jump out and run and let the car drift and he did. He jumped out, let the car roll to a stop at a traffic circle. Where there was no person, car blows up, killing the suicide bomber and nobody else. And the terrorist police are arresting everybody in
Attorney Kash Patel Reacts to John Durham's Recent Indictments
"First cash Patel. Welcome back to Salem radio. Savage, great to be with you guys. I'm so happy that you are continuing to hammer on the truth in Russia. That's why we're here every single day for three hours as well as our newsmax show on Sundays. Cash. I'm going to run by you. The reaction I got just a few days ago from Joe di Genoa, a lot of us have lost hope with John Durham. They say, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's two years later. I get that COVID slowed him down. But talk to Joe, who's a former special counsel himself, former U.S. Washington attorney, U.S. attorney for D.C.. He said these indictments, the level of detail in these indictments, especially the most recent one of danchenko, speak to a very serious individual who's going to get to the bottom of it. You've been there. You uncovered the Russia hoax for the house. What's your reaction to the recent developments on Capitol Hill? Yeah, look I think that John Durham is spot on track. As a former federal prosecutor, too, who brought these types of large scale fraud conspiracy cases, I spent three four 5 years sometimes working up a case in John Durham is working on the biggest scandal in the United States presidential history. And in two years, he's got three indictments. And the other thing about these indictments, he's connected the DNC to the corruption at the FBI to the corruption of their lawyers to now directly corrupting or expose enough nature of Christopher steel in the source. And normally these indictments are about two, three, four, 5 pages long. 40 page indictment. Yeah. Issues on the latest go round because John Durham is speaking to the public. It's the only way he's legally allowed to do so. And he's highlighting to take Sullivan's of the world that Charlie Dolan of the world. All these corrupt actors that fusion GPS and Christopher Steele and mccabe abstract and page. It's all coming to life. So I think he's on the right path. I've said it before on my show cash's corner where I did a deep dive into the derm saga and I think he's only just getting
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Stays Quiet Amid COVID Diagnosis
"An incidentally. Prayers for Jen Psaki. I may not agree with her or her administration or what she does. But she has not been heard or seen from, since she announced she has COVID, and that was over a week ago, which is a little odd. Hope she's okay. Maybe she's just going through the typical protocol for somebody getting COVID is a ten day quarantine, right? I think it's ten days, and then a negative test, at least that's our company's protocol. So maybe they followed the same set of guidelines and she's just on quarantine and she's fine. You'd think though that maybe there'd be word that she would let people know how she doing. I've often thought about this if I get COVID, first of all, I think I'll be able to do the radio show because I am isolated here, especially now in South Carolina. If you could see where I am. While you can if you watch on rumble or mic online dot com or the Salem news channel. Because I'm in a barn. Nice barn. It's all padded and we got all kinds of insulation and lighting and we've got a brand new I mean, all of our relief factor dot com set accoutrements are with us. But it is a barn. And ain't nobody here. So if I get it, I could keep working, stay quarantined and do the radio show, which is now. I wouldn't be able to do any, which is why I'm trying to be particularly careful. But the point of this if I got it, and even if I was in bed for a couple of days sick as I think a lot of people have been, even people who've been vaccinated. But these breakthrough cases, I'd let you know how I'm doing. I mean, I'm somewhat of a public figure, Jen Psaki is way more famous than I am. Why wouldn't she take to Twitter or Instagram or something and say, I'm doing okay? I'm all right. I got the sniffles or I don't feel too good, but I'm all right. I'll be back to work. You know, next Wednesday? Nothing. Nothing at all. So it's a little troubling and I certainly hope and pray that she's going to recover fully and she'll be back to work
Charlie Kirk Hosts Meet-and-Greet on Own Dime After Clemson Denies Permits
"You know, our family, our Salem family includes great great talent like Charlie Kirk, Charlie had a big event here in the South Carolina area last night, quick backstory. Charlie was invite, I guess his turning point USA group had an event at Clemson university, the way that works, a group of Clemson typically colleges a university's public schools public universities have to go through a process and they invite organizations like turning point to campus and the left doesn't want to let kids hear Charlie Kirk's point of view. Conservatives aren't allowed to be in the public arena, according to the left. You know, the tolerant left. So Charlie had a great event last night, and the radio station put together a little meet and greet before the event. And Charlie was all excited about meeting 50 or 60 of advertisers for the station for 94 5 the answer Joey Hutch in the morning guy gonna be there going to be a big event. The last minute can't have an event because the right permits weren't filed wink wink. We don't have security wink wink. So Charlie Kirk took responsibility for booking a ballroom at the hotel right down the street, I guess, from little John. On Charlie's own dime, Charlie made it happen, and there was a great meet and greet Joey told me it was a terrific event last night. Had a terrific engagement with people, so kudos to Charlie and his team for going the extra mile. I know pat Kelly, the general manager here at the radio station Joey and the whole team was just they were all just thrilled with the way it went. And I hope you were too if you had a chance to see Charlie and hear him
"salem" Discussed on Strange and Unexplained with Daisy Eagan
"A noose in the town square. The thing about confessing to being a witch and puritan New England, though, is that while it may have gotten you out of being put to death, you face the real problem of living out the rest of your life with your entire community believing you are a witch. Remember when the church committee voted to not pay reverend Paris or make it so he had firewood over the unforgiving winter? It would be like that, but with everything. No one would want to do business with you. No one would give you food. Your house would likely be burned down. It was not good. It was probably with that in mind that Rebecca nurse chose to maintain her innocence when she was accused of being a witch. Her accusers were too young girls and putnam junior and Abigail Williams again, who claimed that nurse attacked them in March. Anne's mother and putnam senior then joined the girls by claiming that nurse demanded she signed the devil's book. But the biggest piece of evidence against Rebecca nurse was that her neighbor, Benjamin Holton died shortly after nurse had lectured him about letting his pigs root around in her garden. Remarkably, though, nurse was found not guilty. But chief judge William stoughton was not having that verdict. He told the jury to go back and look again at the incriminating statement nurse had supposedly made about herself. Reading through the actual statements from the trial is an exercise. Ye olde English might as well be another language. But it looks like the statement nurse made that sealed her fate was this. Quote, what. Do these people give in evidence against me now? They used to come against us. I have no idea what that means. And before all you oldie English scholars come for me on Twitter about not doing my research, just don't. I do plenty of research, also this isn't a peer reviewed journal. It's a podcast. Nurse was apparently very hard of hearing, so it's also likely that any statement she gave in court was in response to something she had misheard. The judge is like, what say you goody nurse to the accusation that Ye are to witch? And she was like, what's that? A bitch? I mean, sure, if you let your pigs trample through my garden and eat my vegetables, I'm gonna have some words for you. You wanna call me a bitch because of it, that's your business. And the judge was like, well, that's confession enough for me. The vast majority of people tried for witchcraft were women. And of those, they were mostly old because as we all know, once a woman is no longer capable of making babies, she's gotta do something with her time. Why not become a witch? But there were a handful of men tried for witchcraft, one of whom was X minister George Burroughs, who many believed was the ringleader of the witches plaguing Salem. And putnam accused burrows of bewitching American soldiers in 1688 and 89, leading to their loss in a battle against the local wabanakis. Some believe that this was the first in a string of losses against local tribes due to an alliance they believe the locals had with the devil because lord knows the colonizers losses in local battles with people who were familiar with the terrain and were likely better fed and better health generally couldn't be attributed to literally anything other than a pact with the devil. Salem witch trial darlings, Betty parris and Abigail Williams once again came forward with accusations. One wonders with how often Betty and Abigail claimed to have had run ins with witches, they even survived that long. But there they were at George burrow's trial claiming he choked them and bragged that he outranked a wizard. He was in Salem, the girls said to persuade people to give their souls to the devil. At Burroughs trial, the girls put on quite a show, falling into trances, mid testimony, crying out in pain, claiming that burrows had bitten them. They showed the bite marks to the court who compared them to burrow's mouth and declared them to be a match. Needless to say, even today with advances in technology, bite mark evidence is. Questionable. But in 1692, someone could glance at someone's mouth and be like, yep, those are no doubt the teeth that made those bite marks. And everyone else was like, case closed. Those girls were definitely biting each other. But imagine if George Burroughs had tried to claim the girls were just biting each other and trying to pass the blame onto him. He had no proof. I mean, sure, neither did literally anyone in this whole circus, but the court had already put 6 people to death. What would happen if they turned around at that point and been like, wait, maybe these girls are making this shit up? In fact, burrow's main argument for his innocence was that witches didn't exist, and that was probably his undoing. Because again, if witches didn't exist, how could the court justify putting 6 innocent people to death? And holding hundreds more in dungeons..

Understanding Religious Vaccine Exemptions With Lawyer Jenna Ellis
"There folks, I'm talking to my friend, Jenna, Ellis, she has a podcast with Salem radio. I can't believe it. We get all the good people. You were talking about Southwest Airlines. I want to talk a little bit about religious exemptions. I didn't mention earlier, you're a constitutional legal scholar. You understand these things far better than most of us. Why for example, and this I find bizarre. According to my friend John murak and some others, all of the vaccines were made with fetal cells or tested with fetal with fetal tissue. So you would think the whole Catholic Church would stand against this, but the Pope and many American bishops have said, no, we're fine with this. That doesn't make any sense to me. I would think that'd be the first place you can get a religious exemption if you're a Catholic. But so what is the issue with religious exemption? Right, and you would think that, but of course, the Catholic Church, and even American Protestant churches have strayed so far from what the Bible actually teaches and from standing on the eternal immutable inherent word of God. And so we as Christians need to make sure that we are always going back to the sufficiency of scripture. And with religious exemptions, we are blessed to live in a country where our founder specifically textually protected our ability to freely exercise our religion. Now, of course, like many pastors, right? Where they will go to the text of scripture, take out one or two words, and then build a whole sermon or a doctor and around it that's actually really different from what the text says. The U.S. Supreme Court has done that with the U.S. Constitution. It will take one or two words call it a clause of the constitution, and they'll build a whole doctrine around it, and it becomes something so different than what the text actually says. So in context, our First Amendment which has the free exercise clause in it and the two religion clauses basically in context when it says that the establishment clause is the other one that the government can't establish a religion, but also that we are protected and freely exercising our religion. It's not just about saying I have a right in this country to not have the government not allow me to go to church, but also that the government can not compel me to participate in any sort of event including a vaccine, by the way that goes against my sincerely held religious
"salem" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"I play shape. Shifter oto on star trek deep space nine brown and i play oil and yesterday was a lie as well as crewmen taylor on star trek enterprise. Coupla my name is never pigeon. Emma concept designer in film. I am emily hampshire. And i play jennifer goings on twelve mortiz. Angry infosys by top high very intriguing series returns and that is salem on. Wgn on the same special we have roundtable interviews from new york comic con twenty sixteen and first up our co show runner adam. Simon and shane west. Who was once again john. Alden younger folks is together. The whole dna of salem really is like early. Dark shadows. trello. Here is shane west on season three. Yeah we're really excited about season. Three we feel like it really kind of came into. Its own is here. I know from experience in the past usually at third season for mo- shows people get a little bit more comfortable in every department and kinda kinda start stood really hit it straight. Even though i'm personally can say. I'm not biased That it was a fan of. I two years i feel like this is really hitting our stride. I'm really excited for people to see it and you know obviously things changing them wearing now november second. And we've been it's been a longer period of time waiting all. I'm even more excited now. We'll we see more spiritualism and john alden he goes through a little bit of. I mean he's really gone to rely. Obviously every characters gone through a lot on the show. That's the point. That's what makes kind of exciting I really enjoyed season. Two in the beginning of it being able to be Which light i guess so to speak up where he was able to kinda participate in those things being a fan of that stuff anyway. It was a lot of fun to be able to bring in the native american background and his relationship with them And being able to have powers of. Because john being the most you know he's the one of the heroes of the show but he's but he's human Which makes me ultimately very interesting. But it was fun from a fan. Perspective of being played out first season with the tattoos and the amulet and all that kind of stuff that we have maybe the devil coming to salem and marilyn manson what is it. That's true there's more on the child and also a literary influence. Oh yeah. He has a crucial role to play in the season. I mean a lot of our inspiration for the third season was a. This is not long after the period when milton actually wrote paradise law so we really tried to draw on that whole mythology and the same way that from the get. Go with the show. We've had we tried to make all of the supernatural elements true to the actual beliefs of the time. Not what every single person would have believed. But there's nothing you've ever seen on salem from which is stealing men's private parts and turn them into birds to people keeping familiar toads in people's bellies to you know the kind of astral projection on everything you've seen in. There is something that people believed was possible. So we've extended that to some sense the larger mythology and we want to do two things also that were key in season three which is on the one hand really pay off this idea of the devil and the relation between the witches and the devil but at the same time be true with the fact that most of us understand. The richest weren't really devil-worshippers that they were there. Were the remnants of some older cooler archaic kinda pagan tradition or something. That's more wicked. Exactly whatever weakens think they are this district and to really answer the question. Well how did they get aligned with the devil to begin with and in some sense. If there's a i don't know kind of a fun thesis behind it. It's the idea of the witches helped by john on the few men who can who nobody hates which is more than alden. The witches are the ones who brought the devil b-actor and now they're the only ones when they realized what a bad idea. This actually was that they've been screwed. I've lied to surprise surprise. They're the only ones who can do anything about it. Unfortunately mary sibley is dead and she would be the key one and the other man they would most need hates them more than anything more than life. It's humid exactly but so it's fun and he brings with him. Yes is the devils there. The the boy is there in ways that we don't want to give anything away. But it's a very which season for that kid and his performances grad. And i reggie with his mother and weirdness of that the ways in which your relationship with mary gets tested in a whole new complicated i. Mary does return this season. Yeah we don't want to. Jim too much scores. Obviously you've seen the trailers you've seen that she's in their question. How is she in there. Under what circumstances you know. She's a spy in the house of love. She has to kind of sneak her way back into her own household in a very odd odd way but every character is seen i think new and revealing ways this time we also get back to the essence of john alden as bad ass. Let's get back to the essence of john alban. Well in this in this season. I mean what we got through. You knew what was happening for one in to him in season one coming back and realizing that the love of his life left him at point not really knowing all about the supernatural yet then getting really involved in that in season two and not really knowing was anymore and then season three. What's a lot of fun is now that that's all been established. And and he's and mary's gone. What left what is there left for john. And when he's essentially you find out that he's forced to stay Even though he didn't wanna stay in salem they bring him back to being captain so he starts to try and put an army together to and it's fun to kind of see what he might have done in what he was doing in the past but now what he would do in the current president of okay bringing all these people together and trying to hold salem together as a soldier and that's that was a lot of i mean there's a lot of fun stuff that's season. We have a lot of fun bringing back stuff. That had always been our intention to also ground. Our salem as much fantasy is or isn't it. It's gritty fantasy and surprisingly more based on truth and history than you would think you could easily argue that. With the exception of the fact that we say which is a real. There's a lot more historical reality and ours. And there isn't a crucible. The depiction of salem in the crucible is completely not true at all. There's no mention that there's a war going on that this is like ground zero of a massive world war. That's happening around there that there's not just a bunch of white puritans in this town but this is this is a seaside port. That's literally the crossroads of the globalism of the seventeenth century. So we bring that. That comes back in a big way and as has often happened in salem. We seem to touch on things that were not even quite happening when we started writing them and then not that we made them happen. But there's a refugee crisis going on in salem during this because of the french and english more. That's happening outright woods. So there's all this stuff that's happening in the show while it was happening in the news and we were like they bad juju value right so we don't his character especially depending on the back to the essence of who he was john. Alden was like a guerilla fighter An indian fighter but also one of the few friends of the indians at the time. I mean he was a really interesting. The real john all does a great character and he's very similar to this other than he wasn't half as good looking or this young but you know he was he was doing all. The school had a better beard. He probably okay. We'll give him back designing things of this time period and making it their own. Then i have to say every department had every person in every department had gets kind of infected with that enthusiasm but they all share this vision as i say we reject the opposition to either gritty realism or kind of airy fantasy. We wanted gritty fantasy a fantasy that you could believe in part because the details would be true. Right the details of clothing.
Moms for America's Kimberly Fletcher: We Either Stand Together or Hang Alone
"Joining us right. Now is kimberly fletcher for moms for america. Who wrote a great piece for townhall dot com which is part of the salem family. Asking the question. Does my government think a domestic terrorist. Kimberly welcome to the charlie kirk show. Thanks charlie it's great to be here so walk us through it. You run moms for america. It's moms for america dot. us a wonderful organization. All of a sudden are the moms that you represent. Are they now considered domestic terrorists. Yeah apparently that's the case. And we've received a lot of obviously received a lot of emails. Phone calls on post on social media. From all these moms who've shown up at the scoreboard meetings at the end. They were like panicking. What do we do what we do. And i said you guys. Are they have no constitutional authority whatsoever to do what they're doing. So we all need to unite together and one of the things i keep telling moms as we either as our founding fathers said stand together or hang along and so the more of us that unite together. The more powerful voice is going to be honest. That's the reason why they sent the letter to the federal government asking for intervention because they fear us and the federal government. Here's us and you know that when they can't even say the word long so i think actually in a really good place and my goal is to help us realize. Just how powerful. Their influences uniting s together and more of us need to show up at the school board meetings and are
"salem" Discussed on Risky Bitches
"So this is what i guess. Almost five years after the initial salem wood stroz in the accusation started so january sixteen ninety seven general court of massachusetts declared a day of fasting contemplation for the tragedy that had resulted from the trials that month samuel seawall when of the judges publicly acknowledged his own error and guilt in the proceedings in seventeen o to the general court declared that the trials had been unlawful in seventeen of six and put them apologize for her role as an accuser. Twenty two of the thirty three individuals who were convicted were exonerated in seventeen eleven by the commonwealth of massachusetts which also paid a sum to the families of the victims in nineteen fifty seven the state of massachusetts nineteen fifty seven. That's like what six years ago right now yesterday. Yeah embarrassingly like yesterday. I know in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven. The state of massachusetts formally apologize for the trial. It was not until two thousand and one however the bill last of the eleven who were convicted. Were fully exonerated. Two thousand one. That was twenty years ago. Wow isn't that insane the that long. I don't know why they can. I honestly probably should've included that in my research like what i mean. Why two thousand one was someone just like. We've pardoned those eleven people. who are you know dead. Mangano now weird commutes like I don't know i. I probably should have looked into that. Some final thoughts about this salem witch trial so. I think that there are many important lessons from the salem which trials suggests the importance of impartial judges as stable judicial structure or the rights to receive council but salems most important instruction goes beyond the concerns of legal systems lawyers. The greatest problems in salem were not prosecutors in judges they were fear and ignorance fear of the unknown fear of someone who is not like us and fear of speaking up ignorance of history. Ignorance a science ignorance of the difference between the demons. We imagine and the ones that we actually face. The salem witch trials remind us to beware of fear and ignorance can do in our own society and in our own hearts and minds..

"I gotta give my colleague. Hugh hewitt credit really grew grilling anthony. Xiaojie on his radio. Show this week. Here is hugh. Dr fao cheesy on the hugh hewitt radio show here on. The salem radio network really tried to hold dr fao. Choose feet to the fire. Have confidence in the cdc and the fda. And i actually believe a lot of americans a significant part of the america. Dalit lost confidence in you. Dr fat she. Is there a point where you will say. I do more harm than good because people don't listen to me anymore and step aside. No absolutely unequivocally no you sorry i mean. I agree with a lot of the things that you've been saying. You come from a different perspective than i do. But i think the thing that gets lost in the discussion and that people need to understand and i do know that some people don't understand and don't accept it even if they smart people who evaluated in their own context is that we have been dealing with an evolving situation. And i just get back to what i said before. And i totally understand and respect your differences you that when you have an evolving situation and data are rapidly evolving something. That's unprecedented and unknown. You have to evolve with it and look at the data as it exists now and make to the best of your ability of decision a recommendation all the kinds of things that go into the evolution and things have changed. We didn't know things early on. I always get asked the question. It's a very common question. What would you have done back then if you knew what you know now. The question answers itself. If i knew. Then what i know now. The circumstances would have been different. Now you may accept that answer you may reject it. It's up to you. This is america. You get to have your own opinion. But i appreciate hugh pushing him i appreciate fallacy. Essentially admitting they were making it up all along
Boris Epshteyn on the Woman in a Gorilla Mask Attacking Larry Elder
"Look full disclosure. He's a colleague of mine at salem. Radio host larry elder the sage of south central. He is running to replace gavin. And just this shocking video. That msnbc the mainstream media cnn just really isn't interested in what would what would happen if the if the roles were reversed and they white republican in gorilla mask tried to attack a black democrat candidate for anything. Boris the Attacks on larry elder have been so outside the lines have been so despicable but they underscore exactly what democrats are. They're power hungry sebastian. They are racist that. Let's be honest. We know from alana mall rasheed. Leave their antisemitic they will. They will not back off any offensive thing that they can do in order to gain or keep power and that's what's happening and california. That's what's happening to other and it's really terrible to say but this truly is the most the rank form of racism and the fact that the media doesn't care bar is expected. That's what it is that today's media is of course they don't care when when it's republicans who are offended. They don't care they all four women politicians but then with governor palin. They did nothing but viciously attack her and they're doing the city they prefer tend to to be you know above race or posed ratio or not racist than and accepting everybody but of course they attack larry elder and use these racist to do and of course again they use that semitic tropes than an actual anti-semitism to to attack israel to attack jews. So this goes back to the obvious thing about the democrat party if you look at their history through the kkk. Through through jim crow through the south in the sixties and seventies of the past century the democrat party has been the one that has been anti semitic. That's been blatantly racist and has been the one that is disenfranchising america's all across the country. Republican party is the party of inclusivity is the party of opportunity is the party of chance. And that's exactly what the maximum is all about under the leadership of president trump.

What about people's personal choice. What about it's my body. It's my life and she said well if patients want to choose not to take the vaccine and be selfish and take up hospital beds. Well then. they're not concerned about the greater good. And i'm thinking i'm laying in a hospital bed and she knows nothing about me or my family so i said i'm going to write a letter to her and my letter was simple.

"salem" Discussed on The Political History of the United States
"Backlash to the trials was virtually immediate and widespread throughout massachusetts. We are going to eventually see an putnam. Junior and samuel sewell. Apologize for their roles. In the ordeal putnam junior would recognize that innocent. People died because of her statements. Well she would never go so far. As to deny having seen the spectators in the first place she came to admit that she may have been mistaken about what they actually meant for his part apologized for bringing the anger of god upon massachusetts for the role. He played in the trials. Following salem witchcraft. Trials became a far more rare in america. The the practice actually did survive until eighteen. Seventy eight when daniel. Spa was accused of witchcraft. That trial if you're curious completely fizzles out and the case is dismissed however it did take place in salem witch cost what likely appeared then to be a frivolous case to get a good amount of attention either way however there would never again be a witch hunt quite in the same fashion as what we see in sixteen ninety two and i do say the same fashion however because the idea of the witch hunt does remain a very powerful part of the american political experience. The term witch hunt is a very common thing. Today that often refers to unfair persecutions often in the political arena that mccarthy communism trials of the nineteen fifties for example are often brought up as a modern witch-hunt and references to salem were often made during those hearings. Salem is such a strange moment. In american history that it really has captured the minds and imaginations of the modern population. Today if you ask people about their knowledge of american colonial history prior to the revolution there is a pretty good chance that they are going to bring up the witchcraft trials in salem. In that regard in the popular imagination the events of sixteen ninety two salem remain something that is at the front and center of the history of the colonial united states. Next time we are going to take a few episodes to tour around the colonies. We have not talked about in a while to see what they've been up to. We are going to begin that trip by dropping in virginia to see. Just what's been going on there until then. I hope that you all have a fantastic two weeks that you are staying healthy and that you are staying safe and i will see you back here then when we go and catch up with what's been happening in virginia..
"salem" Discussed on The Political History of the United States
"Hello and welcome to the political history of the united states episode. Three point five. The legacy of salem last time we spent her episode looking at the salem witchcraft. Trials of sixteen ninety two trials. That's a hundreds accused and twenty executed for witchcraft. This entire system of trials was predicated upon extremely flimsy evidence such as these of spectral in touch evidence last time we had focused on the history of the events but nuts and bolts of. What had actually gone down in salem this week however i want to step back and try to piece together just why salem totally lost its mind in sixteen ninety two. We are going to look at the long term legacy and the effects of the salem trials and try to figure out what the entire experience had actually meant if anything at all when examining the trials in salem the biggest question that comes out is how did this happen. I was possible in the first place. Now i would encourage that. We look at this question in two separate ways. The first question that we need to answer is what were the events that created a situation conducive to the accusations being made in the first place. The second question then is. How did the structures in place in salem as well as in massachusetts in general support the allegations that indeed help keep the entire event going along as we're going to see at some point. The allegations begin feeding more and more allegations as the entire cycle became self sustaining. As to that first question. I want to take a moment to look at the conditions in salem in early sixteen ninety two as that is going to help explain what the environment was and how. It was conducive for the witchcraft trials. In the first place massachusetts was a mess in early sixteen ninety two now. The good news for us is that. I really don't need to spend a whole lot of time on this point because the last twenty or so episodes of this podcast have had an underlying theme. That massachusetts was going through some stuff over the last decade. And a half beginning with king philip's war and sixteen seventy five then moving forward to the loss of their colonial charter and the introduction of being government in sixteen eighty six then on into the edmund andros era now we are stuck in that period of semi purgatory. While we wait to see what william the third is going to do with the new colonial charters the entirety of massachusetts therefore was on edge. Had now been on edge for several years it had been a rough decade for the massachusetts colony and at the moment a return to a truly stable system was still often their future. What had more of a profound impact on. Salem however was their location in massachusetts. The settlement is located in the northeastern portion of the colony. Salem village now modern day danvers. Since about twenty five miles from the.

Yes and so. There's something different from that culture that cultured nece. Which is maybe a little bit to be distrusted and the like cultured -ness of been mir's which is like the american culture of like i read do art man and i like i go when i write my ten pages every day and that's the working man's thing. I don't sell antiques straker. Embar lower often. A suggestion like the people in the town are like. Oh they're like they're queer for each other writing like they are under. So there's a there's a recurring notes of gay panic throughout this novel There is like and it shows up in weird places to there's one when they're in the hospital like there's an thrown off note that's like there's a homosexual who shot outside of a club. Yeah and it's just like for all the information that is included in this novel as a very specific and weird thing to choose steve. Yeah and it's also very interesting. Because this is nine hundred and seventy-five interview with the vampire by By anne rice comes out the next year. Nineteen seventy six. And that makes a like this. The sort Fictional artistic link between the vampire and the homosexual and sort of from this. They're there unfolds. A kind of reading of vampirism his aides metaphor which is latent in this book. Because it comes before all of that. It's so strange. Yeah yeah absolutely. So there's all kinds more stuff. I think that we could talk about. We could talk for another two hours about this. But let's get arles girl segments in here all right when we want to start with. What's your favorite kingsholm in this book. So my favorite king ism in salem slot happens close to the midpoint point For some context. This is in matt. Burks house where he So mike ryerson who has spent the night is dead right so that the sun rises and Matt calls been over and it's like. I think there's a dead man in my house and also i think there are some vampires and then they call in a jimmy cody and possibly the sheriff. No no the constable parkin's gillespie Basically there's a dead man here. A bunch of people show up Been is one of them Yeah they go upstairs. And as they're walking up been thinks to himself. Now if we only played instruments been thought we could give the guy a real send-off the reason this is a king azam is that this is a this is a technique that king uses again and again and again and i always love it. is the character Thinking something totally inappropriate in a moment of like horror gravitas and trying to restrain laughter. And it's always there's something so authentic about the fact that like bins idea like oh if we all if we all played instruments we could make a band. Essentially it's the medically. It's not like this isn't giving us foreshadowing for what's going to happen later. It's not like a suitably creepy kind of comparison. No it's just like the straight of random like neurons firing man if we all played instruments we could give the guy a real send-off mine is That's very good Mine mine is for when they are actually talking to the sheriff later..

He can corn quote become a ghost town raking disappear off the map And the in the world just of keeps going around it You know it's kind of premodern. Space of like.

Yes so by this point and been has essentially adopted mark as his son Which is a very strange Kind of turn Just in in a kind of general sense like in a in a kind of narrative sense rate in the kenyan narrative sense. It makes a lot of sense because they are very similar characters writer by the in terms of personality. They are very similar right. They're both sort of like Dark-haired a artistically inclined sensitive but nevertheless capable of getting their hands dirty and in fact when benn first meets mark The the the feeling he has and this is what the the narrative says right is like the feeling of meeting himself when he was a child. So they they have fled together becoming this weird sort of new family unit. Weirdly enough right to me. This very strongly parallels what barlow and striker or up to write to people kind of like you know skipping around the world together in the steer circumstances but then know been in mark Or i think it's it's been decides eventually like. I'm going back and so they go back to salem slot a year later and They hang out in a nearby town for a couple of days..

It's a thing that stephen king can do really well. We're like the character is trying so hard not to have this intrusive thoughts and they're like talking about something in the narrative voices very close to to their sort of interior monologue. And as as mike is like talking or thinking about something else that he swerves back around to wire you looking at me. Why are you looking at a shut your eyes and then of course Sunsets and things. Don't go well for mike. Because matt runs into him a few days later. At the roadhouse. Mike is looking really sick and because mike is of course one of matt's former students he's like. Hey you know.

Yeah yes so so seems like that kind of just peppered all throughout the novel of of people running into vampire kind of stuff. There's the character out at the who works at the dump so particularly because i find so much of this novel so charming. I have asked michael if we could do a dramatic rendition of some of the dialogue. That happens to give you a flavor for what happens when the vampire comes for you. Michael do you think that's fair. Yes people described. So i'm going to be playing. What is what is his name. Dud dud rodgers dodie rogers who works at the He works at the dump. He is also kind of a stephen king stock character. Although i don't think stephen king ever gets this shitty with it i guess. Search like straight up this. There are very bad choices. Made with regard to this character. Yes so so he. He has a hunchback appropriate term for. That is but the as stephen king is using this thing. And he's a town outcast. You works at the dump and people were fucking mean to them..

"Way getting the believed the ground and pinning him and getting his arm behind him and making him say uncle In in that way everyone understands that mark. Petri is not someone to be trifled with Yeah he's a serious little kid There's a god there's a lot of these kids and and the thing is interesting though that we're gonna go from this to the shining which is like the anti mark petri in some ways in that dany in that novel but We'll get there but yeah so these are people. They all kind of come together in different ways. The first i don't know half of this book is is patiently. Slow the only real things that happened or what we've already talked about. Which is that been. Moore shows up to town and his idea was to lease the Marston yes marksman yeah the the marston house which is like this. You know yvo ass house. It's like sitting above the town on on a big hill ideas to lease it and then work out of it and kind of exercises demons. Whatever is writing a novel about huey marston. This gangster that live there. Who's like doing all kinds of bad stuff. And then but when they get there or when he gets there. It's already been leased to somebody. It's been at least to a pair called striker and barlow best names. Some excellent at stephen king names very very good vampire names ray but but but the least of them already in basically they're vampires are or one is a vampire ones come familiar and they have decided to come here based on the invitation of marston like fifty years earlier Mars the implication that we over the course of novel and i. It's actually kept very vague. That but the ideas that marston moved their aim was murdering children. And maybe doing you know satanism kind of stuff with it. And he had a long correspondence with barlow then known as break and i kind of middle european count and Basically was just they were talking presumably about evil satan stuff And now all these years later breaking and barlow and striker have moved to the town to start the stuff. And i mean from from when they move into whenever when is turned into vampires. Pretty quick It it's it's a few weeks ago. Say that the novel we get some dates in the novel Said the novel begins on september. Fifth been. Susan tells been That she loves him on september twentieth. Or gra Solid fifteen days. yep So that gives you a sense of lake that the speed at which these characters are operating And then the town is dead by october. Fifth there yet so so a pretty pretty short time period year Well literally just one. Month i guess But but i mean. That's what's kind of weird about it. Is that other than these kind of characterization moments about the town and about the characters that we've all talked about and in the little segments that we've given you about each of these characters really jew what we get we get little pieces of characterization where they're interacting with one another or whatever so for example Match and then meeting at. The roadhouse know those are really the segments of characterization. It's only win well. I guess that's happening in the background. We're getting these scenes of the town of for example a dog being murdered. And then the The glick shoulder glick children being killed in one of them being turned into a vampire which kind of sets the whole thing off. But but it really is. It's very slow moving and it. Kinda proceeds like a thriller for every ten scenes..

"The thing that is strange about this is that he had a wife who died named miranda He was in a motorcycle accident and They they hit a a wet patch on the road and they skid and He he ends up being like there's either like not a scratch on him or he's like minorly injured but his wife a scratch on the back of his left hand yes. It's very specific. But his wife is white straight up dies and he is now sort of living in the aftermath of this and the idea. Guess is that he is. He's going back to salem slot to sort of trigger a kind of creative process by confronting this demon from his past. It's sort of strange to me. How he maybe thinks about his dead wife to go in the first three hundred pages of this book and one is directly in comparison with a new woman. Yes seed actually. Maybe both in our just to be like. Oh yeah this. This susan norton girl reminds me a lot of my wife. My wife who who was named maranda in the most we get is that he didn't like miranda was asking him about what he was writing. Yeah yeah and so. It's really hard you know. I think i think you're getting your way around of this microbiome just going to say directly. It's really really hard. Not to read. This as stephen king fantasizing about his wife dying and i don't think that's the intent and i'm not joining the psychologist the novel but when you create a character that's basically you and then you have a wife but seems very similar to your own wife. She's providing feedback for his novels. And being i mean doing all the stuff that you were talking about tabitha gingrich. It's it's it's weird and they love motorcycles. And we know. Stephen king gloves motorcycle his protagonist going to ride motorcycles for the next forty years. And so it's it's it's weird. It just feels weird to read it. Gosh it's really feels like a man fantasizing about dead wife the and the other part of this. The only thing that i think saves bid mirrors from ending up feeling Like re league kind of gross is just like how corny he is as a character but he is our central character and at the same time. He is just a very corny. Dude a actually. In a way that is i think itself evocative of king right yet. He's he's a character who all his beliefs are on his sleeve..

"But yeah i mean the whole the whole logic here and there's some other stuff going on to king is pretty pretty explicit. That like america is ripe for vampirism in particular kind of way but but but there's a similar the relationship you're pointing to here is one where dracula. The vampire represent time being out of joint not not to not to rip you off here but right it's it's a hunter logical and the duration way and if people that means era need you. Because i'm gonna explain it The idea is that something from the past is is latent in the conditions of the present and then the conditions of the present change in such a way as to make that imminent or rise again so the past is never truly past It is waiting to be born in the moment and the idea here. Is that in salem. Slot in the notion of the small town in rural maine in the way that small towns function in relationship to things like great evil. And i could see the notes that that we're going to be talking about that too but it can set the conditions under which those old things that we seem to have dismissed with majority. You're talking about new original dracula where those things kind of bloom again. In the implication being that the vampire was always here there. Just wasn't a vampire to activate it right to activate this kind of of evil necessity That vampirism brings out in the community And and that's really kind of done by this ben mears character. I mean michael. What'd did you think about yours as a as a in character so been near as our first. He's another king type right. This is another type of character. We're going to see versions of again and again. Perhaps the type of character we're going to see the most of maybe he is the writer protagonist and as usual when there is a writer protagonist. It is very hard not to see the person as essentially a cipher for king himself in a lot of ways especially in the ways that he is described. He's sort of. He's he's got like dark hair he is a he tends toward like sensitivity and being artistic right he writes. He's as an author. He is emphatically not stephen king because he is writing what we would today call literary fiction. At least that seems to be the idea that we're getting right like with titles like conway's dr daughter and heir dance in dance. I the i love the idea that this man has written a book called air dance and so we have this sort of alternative king who wrote a different type of fiction and made his name that way but also in this is very important he is. He has a working class background. He knows what it's like to work with his hands. At the beginning of the novel we have The boy in the man who are Been mears that's the man and the boy who is mark petri. We don't know their names yet but we get this epilogue of them You know fleeing from maine down across the united states into mexico and as they're doing this we have the man stopping and working in lake textile mills and all of these jobs that don't exist anymore like all of these manufacturing jobs that i guess would have been a pretty available in nineteen seventy four nineteen seventy five but We have in the novel. Proper been showing up. He's he sort of made his name as this novelist in. He's come back to salem slot to revisit his childhood trauma and use that to write a book now..

"All of these satanists having having their black masses out in in here the good old usa in of course the year after this we get in nineteen seventy six we get the omen which also slots into this ideas of demons demonic possession and for a good long while it is sort of a question in this book of like are these are these dudes just like are these weird mysterious people showed up in town just like some satanists and we get a lot of clues kind of suggesting that until the truth turns out to be a a lot more weird in horrible yeah and Especially where i guess. What's cool about it is like you're saying the the book folds in a particular kind of way and keeps a lot of things. Ambiguous and i agree. I think it would be great. I think it would be excellent if like someone could find someone else. That's it the end. No but if you can find someone. Who doesn't know anything about salem. Slot give it to them and then like poll their reaction. Did you know it was a vampire novel. Because that stuff really doesn't kick in for very long time. I was really surprised. We're not introduced to critical key characters until halfway through the novel. I'll say like it. We do not get hard confirmation that this is a vampire novel until literally the almost the exact midpoint But but what's cool about that about the kind of satanic panic moral panic stuff that you're talking about is that it's not like there's one thing in in another you know it's not like oh we thought it was satanic panic stuff where we thought it was dark writes in and gina rituals and things like that satanism and then it turned out to be vampires. I think king is like really tied into the moral logic of the us and the time. Because it's both right is satanic stuff that is that then gives over into vampires as opposed to thought it was one thing than another. So i think that's it's it gets deploy Kind of both pieces of that in to me. It really feels like stephen king saying look. You know y'all focused on One really boring. Part weird occult stuff. You could be america focused on another really cool part And you get this kind of resuscitation in the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies here. I mean this is in part is the seventy s. But i think it's part of a a run in the time period of the rejuvenation of interest of someone like lovecraft in here. He uses love crafts name more than one time through the character of matt. And so you get this vibe. That stephen king's trying to be like hey look There's other cool stuff to look at this other weird dark things in the american imaginary that you could be pulling on So a apart from the five sentence summary another way of thinking about this book and this is explicit. King writes this book. At least partly. While he is teaching high school english at a school called hampton academy and he is teaching a on fantasy and science fiction and He he teaches dracula brand..

"So i mean but i think it's a lot more polished i think that You know i don't. You're the one who does the research on the writing of these books. Michael you're the one who goes and checks things out. But i wonder how much of an editorial hand was had in this book. I feel quite lot in the same way that the indus carry was editorial maneuvered. But i think for the better. I think that this has as much stephen king voice to it but has a lot of different parts that we are going to see. Show up in king again. I mean this is a real solidification of the stephen king voice as rider and it's also worth noting that while carey was a very lean inefficient novel like two hundred pages thereabouts My paperback of salem slot ones Six hundred fifty pages so considerably longer. And you say that. Like so sadly what i just i. I've got I mean don't get. Don't get to embarrassed to impress here. Michael but i have the collector's edition. Who is that the one deal associations No no it is sadly there's one little stations there is no. It's not but it has like an introduction by clive barker which did not read. I don't know if that is in every version of the book. Now it's up but it's like a big. It's a whole book and it's a at about four hundred pages kind of the same size as the other ones so a like the same dimensions as my version of carrie. So roughly double the length if you know if you don't have the same versions as we do like it's worth noting also that king I think in his little de katori. Maybe it's at the beginning I'm flipping through this now quick. I can't find it but he mentions it as a big book. I think it isn't his acknowledgments right. He says there's a lot of help that goes into writing a big book as he calls it. And this is king's kind of first big book that is also as as you said. I think Had some editorial intervention in his therefore not is stymied by some of the things that i think bogged down his later big books but we will talk about that in the future This is all to say that salems light in. It's really good like this novel is great like i love it. It's really good across the board. I think like every part of it is good. Now that doesn't mean that this is a book above reproach or critique. We will get there. I promise you because there's a lot of there's a lot of like one thousand nine hundred seventy stephen king. Yeah well i mean. In the same way that kerry like we talked about the things in carey that worked. That worked really really well. And then the things that are kind of worth taking a second look at And i think you know. I think that's going to be a thing that we do throughout this show is talking about what works in a novel and what doesn't and Being able to appreciate the things that we appreciate a while acknowledging the things that stink really really stink And you know there's some of that in here too. But i think it's really interesting so i think you're not had had a conversation maybe at the end of the last episode or or some time in the in the intermediary period here Or this this has historically been one of my favorite stephen king novels and reading at this time actually cooled on it a little bit and i don't i don't quite know why maybe we can..

I'm your host. Michael and with me is my co host cameron gross sucking your blood. Michael isn't that a it. Gross noise it is a gross noise. It's very very gross Well i was a you know. That's why i was thinking about because there's someone in this novel eight. I don't wanna spoil it for anybody but there's vampires in this bad boy and somewhat says They're hearing vampire stuff. going on. You know hashtag empire stuff and they say in vin. They could hear the sucking how much that you know. Scare them or whatnot and i just thought in my head. Probably while i was reading the book made the noise out loud. I was just like i had the exact same reaction to that line. Or it's like if this were real right. This would be scary but the problem is in fiction in writing. The words sucking is just very funny. I'll stop doing that. Okay well we're talking today. About stephen king's second novel salems lot from nineteen seventy five. This came out what this is the year after kerry yes the year after which is pretty good turnaround. Time virgo turnaround time and probably well. I don't wanna get ahead of ourselves here. But probably the strongest one two punch in his entire career. It is a very strong one two punch. It is like just thinking about like this. Carry people listen to the last episode. This last episode. Go check that out but we. We enjoyed that. That is a. I think you call it like a like an efficient machine. It's real action is a thriller one hundred percent in this book. I wanted to talk about genre with you at some point during this this episode. I'm sure we'll get there because it also has qualities of a thriller has qualities of a crime procedural through a big chunk of it but ultimately it turns into her becomes or or maybe in the rear view mirror. Now we call it a horror novel But it really is playing with a whole lot of different feelings and affects and like ways of engaging with the book in the same way that kerry did..

"Had the bread basket around it of all these different communities places that exist now today as the Rhone independent communities like when I'm in danvers and Beverly in Andover and tops field, and all these places slowly were chiselled off of the Salem landmass and became their own things. So what is now today? Danvers used to be Salem village and Salem proper today used to be Salem town because that was sort of the the built up wealthier town aspect of it all this. This is going to be new information for quite a few of our listener. You know? And it's important. I I would argue for us to to carve these distinctions out and clarify them. Because the the last time that we were in Boston. We learned firsthand from some residents about salems, the the current salems pretty successful toryism industry based off of this tragedy. Is that a real thing is it's still in full swing? Oh, yeah. Yeah. And you know, and we talk about danvers being old Salem village. And Salem old Salem town, and that dichotomy between the two places. There's a reason why their name is changed and that's partly to distance themselves from what happened. Most of the Salem base because they're okay. So there are a lot of victims that came from other communities and over tops 'field all over the place Gloucester, but a lot of the Salem victims came from the Salem village area. So what is now danvers and a lot of the the. The legal aspects, especially the court of oil and Turner, which was sort of the the higher level jury plus judges system and then moving onto the superior court. Those things will happen in Salem town. So you had victims coming from one area. That's Now, Dan vers-, and it's wildly generalized. I'm just roughly saying it and in Salem L. The all the basically all the bad guys. Right. All the people that sat in the jury are on the court and judge people in in sentence them to death. So you have these two towns, you know, three hundred and twenty five years ago where sort of sitting next to each other and they've grown up, but they've also grown apart culturally and sedan verse change its name, and it sort of distance itself from the idea that the which trials happen. They're like you can find things Rebecca, nurses, one of the victims. She was a seventy five seventy six year old woman who her crime was that she was too generous with one of her neighbors back then Puritans were incredibly prejudiced against any other faiths, and so even quake. Offers which we never think of Quakers as being like, tag or or bad people. But in the puritan mind, they just they weren't Puritans and Quakers Rabat, and she took in a Quaker orphan, and that sort of sealed her fate among among other things she had some rumors spread about her and whatnot. Anyway, her house is still there. It's it's a homestead it's museum. You can tour three hundred and twenty five years later, it's still there and it set up more sensitively, and as as a Ziam as opposed to the Salem witch museum, which is, you know, red lights and dark shadows and witches and cauldrons and things like that. And and so there's this. There's this dichotomy of Salem sort of dodging the issue and danvers dodging the issue and sale in town sort of rolling right into it. I mean, there's a there's a statue of Samantha from the the old TV show bewitched in the middle of town because she was a witch..
